Chip Kelly was asked Thursday if he looks into or thinks about tiebreakers and paths into the playoffs.
Short answer, no. Longer answer is below:
"It means absolutely nothing, and I've always felt the same way," Kelly said. "I look at college football -- everybody talks the BCS talk in October, and it doesn't mean anything; you lose and you're out. I talk about it all the time; we're going to keep our head down 'til December 29th (and the final game, at Dallas). I know I personally will, and we'll see how many games we've won. If that's enough games to qualify for the playoffs, then we did a good job. But wishing and hoping and looking at tiebreakers -- you should be watching film and breaking down your opponent."
Kelly was asked if he's thought about how many games the 5-5 Eagles might need to win to get there. This weekend's game against the Redskins could be pivotal, given the Birds' 2-2 record in the NFC East (Dallas is 3-0, with a win over the Birds).
