Chip Kelly met with the media, begrudgingly, today and was asked about his all-new thinner, lighter, S-8 Mini, which he debuted on the sidelines Monday night.

Here’s the exchange, as transcribed by CBS Philly:

Question: “Why the smaller play card?”

Kelly: “What’s that?”

Q: “Using a small play card…why?”

Kelly: “I’m confused.”

Q: “The play card. The S-8 play sheet.”

Kelly: “I just folded it differently.”


Q: “Did you want to keep the TV’s, ESPN last year had—”

Kelly: “I just literally—we folded it. We didn’t want it to look like a Denny’s menu so we went from Denny’s to a smaller restaurant. I just folded it. And I’ve got the creases in a little different spot, but wow.”

Q: “It’s a good one!”

Kelly: “It’s a great one [laughing]. I mean, we’re digging deep right now. I did have the same shoelaces, I don’t know if you guys were looking at that.

“I know that’s what I shouldn’t have to talk three days in a row, if we’re talking about the size of play cards.”

Bollocks! It’s folded differently. Yeah, OK. The previous one was HUGE…

… and, if you’ll recall, could be seen by MNF cameras last year:

But not this year. No, no. Shrinking that ‘ish… for Monday Night Football, at least. Let’s see what shows up this week. Maybe we’ll get the S-8 Pro?
