Chip Kelly refers to Washington's team nickname as 'that name' instead of 'Redskins'

"Your owner is such an idiot, Jay." "Dude, he hired ME."

Every week prior to game day, the Eagles distribute media guides to members of, you know, the media. This past week, there was an interesting difference on the cover of the Eagles-Redskins media guide -- It didn't say "Eagles vs Redskins." Instead, Matt Lombardo of* made the observation that it said "Philadelphia vs Washington."

In Chip Kelly's press conference today, Kelly was asked what his thoughts were on the name "Redskins." Kelly told reporters, "I have a lot of personal beliefs on things, but my belief doesn't affect what that name is, so they can do what they want to do."

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Kelly purposely said "that name" because he didn't want to say "Redskins."
