"I understand that (dislike)," Kelly said, per the Philadelphia Daily News. "But that's not the way we're wired. I want to compete against the best. It's the same thing, if we went to go to play any other place in the NFL, they would allow us to practice at their facility. When I was in college, everybody allowed us to practice -- USC practiced at our place when we were at Oregon, and we practiced at their place. That's what this deal is all about."
(Kelly's response is partially rooted in a recent ridiculous story wherein he took flak from a local college coach for allowing an Oregon team to use the Eagles' practice facility.)
"I've never been a hate guy," he said. "I don't hate anybody we've ever played. I've got the utmost respect for 'em, and I hope when we have an opportunity to play any team we play, that they're at their full strength. That's the best part about it; that's when really true competitors go against it."
