Chip Kelly doesn’t believe in any stupid SI cover jinx; but the power of the conch compels

Dec 11, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

source:  A couple of solid one-liners from Chipper at his Wednesday press conference. First, he was asked about Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles being jinxed due to the second-year quarterback earning a spot on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.

Kelly was also asked about the goofy “Viking horn” sound heard at games in Minnesota which was also played at Eagles practice today.

Was that an attempt to mimic the crowd noise in Minny on Sunday? Jimmy Kempski has more at Philly.com:

Chip replied, “I thought it was the horn from Anchorman, when he calls for his guys, and they were all standing right next him.”
The two do sound eerily similar.

    Chip is a waste of time and I hope his ankles both shatter under the weight of failed expectations and all of the cheesesteaks his fat ass eats.

      Using the tired “fat” line for Chip? You are aware of our previous coach, yes?

      Everybody who read your comment is now literally a little dumber for having done so.

    On 4th down the Vikings actually use the sound of straw huts ablaze

      They also use the sound of a 10th-century rape whistle at the two-minute warning

    Close your eyes for a sec, and really think back to Sat Nov 2.

    3-5 with back-to-back torturous home losses to Dallas & NYG, total of three offensive points in those 8 quarters. Vick hurt and 6/9 for 39 yds, Foles out with concussion, Barkley beyond ineffective. Opposing fans joyously hoisting “Chip’s Up-tempo Offense” onto their mantles of epic hype failures alongside Dream Team and Gold Standard….

    Now open your eyes and stare at that cover. There’s no way in hell you or me or anyone saw that coming. Let’s savor it for a few days.
