"We're coming off of a short week -- it's nice of the NFL to give Philly 12 days and give us six," Manning said, per CSN Philadelphia. "So we've got to handle that. We've still got some guys injured. So we've got to get some new guys playing."
Asked Tuesday about Manning's comments, Kelly initially brushed them off. Then, with a smirk, he gave the schoolyard response.
"When do we go play?" Kelly asked rhetorically. "We got to play in a parking lot? We'll go play in a parking lot. We don't care."
Kelly surely would match his offense up against anyone without blinking. We suggest thinking twice about that defense, however.
"We played three games in 11 days," Kelly said. "I don't care. We only worry about what we can control, and we don't control the schedule."
True, but will six extra days off be enough for his defense to figure out how to control Manning?
