Former Eagles coach Chip Kelly is nothing if not entertaining.

When the new Niners coach was asked yesterday about the NFL’s new ejection policy, here’s his response:

“You ever see A Few Good Men?” Kelly said. “Why the two orders? Right? If you already have the ability to throw them out of the game, why do we have to put a second order in to throw them out of the game? Throw them out of the game. If they’re not playing it the right way, and we already have the ability to eject them, why do we have to put another order in?

“Private Santiago. Don’t touch him. Why the two orders? Maybe they ordered the Code Red, and we have to investigate. It is important to know. But I don’t think anybody is ordering the Code Red in the National Football League. My whole thing, when that debate went on yesterday, I just kept thinking about A Few Good Men. Why the two orders? You told your men not to touch Private Santiago, but why did you move him off the base?

“That’s all I thought of, to be honest with you. I know I think of things a little bit differently than other people. I just wanted Colonel Nathan Jessup to walk up to the microphone and say: Why the two orders? And then Lieutenant Kaffee would get into him, you know, ‘I want the truth’ and start screaming at him. ‘You can’t handle it.’ Sometimes guys can’t handle it. If a guy doesn’t do something right, get rid of him.”
