The Eagles are 4-1 and Everyone is Still Reacting Terribly

The Eagles are 4-1 (and should really at least be 3-2), and no one is relieved. No one is counting their blessings. No one is thinking the shaky-yet-successful start will turn into something more solid. Everyone is freaking the hell out.

No one is calling for the coach’s job — though with some more questionable playcalling on Sunday Night Football we’ll probably get that too, even if they come out at 5-1 — but there are calls for changes in the secondary (correct)… and at the quarterback and running back positions (incorrect). The panic is understandable. The Eagles, for large portions of their four wins, have looked like a team destined to lose. But they keep pulling it off. How? Doesn’t matter. What can we complain about?

One reader forwarded along a trend he had noticed over on Pro Football Talk, where they keep mentioning McCoy’s production vs. the value of his contract, subtly (and sometimes not so) hinting Chip Kelly may decide that if this doesn’t turn around, he’s not worth the cost. Here’s a sampling of PFT thoughts on McCoy:

- “McCoy knows that, given what he’s getting paid, a 21-yard run and 58 yards on 23 others won’t cut it. Especially when the guys coach Chip Kelly is specifically acquiring to run his offense are looking better than they ever have at any point in their careers.”
– “This year, McCoy has gained 2.9 yards per carry. Last year, he gained 6.3 … the trend is troubling.”
– “With McCoy carrying a huge cap number, he’ll need to have huge production to justify it. Otherwise, LeSean eventually could end up going the way of DeSean.”
– “Come 2015, Sproles and/or others could be good enough in what the Eagles do to justify not keeping McCoy and his $11.95 million cap number.”
– “So which team in the NFC East will sign LeSean McCoy after he’s cut in the offseason?”

Meanwhile, there are people out there who are more concerned with Nick Foles. One of those people, is the always jovial Buzz Bissinger, who is still super salty about Nick not wanting to be interviewed for Buzz’s profile on him. On Monday morning, Buzz told WIP that he deserves an apology from he entire city — which no one has gotten or ever will get — and then continued, stroking his own ego and probably some other things:

“I got pride. Now? You think I want to interview him now? I would rather interview the Eagle mascot. Forget it. You know, the guy had his chance and he blew it. He had his chance to be interviewed by one of the greatest journalists of the country.”

Well it’s a good thing for Buzz then that Nick Foles will never call him back to do that interview.

Shady Might be Dating Two Reality Stars from Shows You’ve Never Seen

IFWT_Tahiry-x-LeSean-1-600x469

Alternate title: Shady is Either Dating Kordell Stewart’s ex or J.R. Smith’s ex or Both.

LeSean McCoy is having a hard time getting going on the field, but off the field the dude is busy. The woman sporting his jersey in the picture above is Tahiry Jose — model, actress, star of VH1’s Love and Hip Hop, owner of an apparently famous ass, ex-girlfriend of J.R. Smith and Joe Budden — who reportedly went out to dinner with him after yesterday’s game. The only problem with all of that? Shady is supposedly dating Porsha Williams — model, actress, star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, ex-wife of Kordell Stewart. Those aren’t quite Biebs-level guys, but hey, it’s what we’ve got now.

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 2.38.36 PM

McCoy had reportedly [editor's note: we use that term in the loosest way possible] started seeing Williams over the summer, as the two were “seen going on dates and kissing in the clubs all around Atlanta.” Shady also “””reportedly””” bought his white Rolls Royce to match Williams’, because that is something super rich people do, I guess. But while Williams posted a supportive Instagram post last week (a picture of Shady with “Baby Steps” and two heart-eyes emojis), it has since been deleted. I wonder if having another woman wear your jersey to the game and then go to dinner with her afterwards has anything to do with that.

We’re not sure how this will all play out for Shady — from tipping to hitting holes on the field, he’s having a weird year so far — but we can’t wait to see it play out on the new Bravo/VH1 crossover show, He’s So Shady [Note: I would legitimately watch that].

Attn. Rich Idiots: The LeSean McCoy $.20 Tip Receipt is now Going for Over $80k

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 3.22.56 PM

A quick click-around in the bidding history shows at least a few questionable bids on LeSean McCoy’s now-infamous $.20 tip receipt — the current leading bidder has withdrawn 11 bids in the last 30 days alone, for example — but if you want it to be yours by the end of the auction, you’ll probably have to shell out more money than it would cost to plan a couple of events, host them, and pay LeSean to actually show up at them. Both of those options are a terrible way to spend $80,000+, but one is definitely cooler.

“Tommy Up’s Friend” Is Auctioning off LeSean McCoy’s Receipt on eBay

Screen Shot 2014-09-13 at 12.50.34 PM

Absurd item description:

The item up for Auction is the controversial $0.20 Receipt for Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean “Shady” McCoy’s meal at Philadelphia Restaurant, PYT.

The aforementioned receipt has caused quite the media buzz amongst social media/news networks/celebrities along with many others.

Not only do you get to keep a memento of weird current events/social media history but you also get an autograph from incredibly talented Philadelphia Eagles running back, LeSean McCoy!!!

As to how I came into possession of this item:

My good friend Tommy Up has left this receipt in my possession in order to ensure something positive comes out of this somewhat negative action that has recently taken place.

With your help we’ll be able to leave the largest tip possible to all PYT employees for their hard work and dedication.

The only thing we would like to ask on your end is for the winner to write a personalized note or card to the PYT staff, which we give to the staff along with the winning bid/tip. (We want to give credit where credit is due)

Happy Bidding!!!

This is attention-whoring the likes of which we’ve never seen. Never mind that the scummy tactic of selling a credit card receipt containing a (millionaire’s!) name and four digits* feels dangerously close to being illegal.

*I’m guessing they’re pretty accessible with the receipt in your possession.

Don’t Worry, LeSean McCoy Stayed on the Chip Kelly Diet at PYT

Figured I’d just post the video because this song’s been in my head all friggin’ week since this story will not go quietly into the night and will not vanish without a fight. I WANNA LOVE YOU, PRETTY YOUNG THING!!!

 

Goddamn Chip Kelly, always in control of the situation, even when his star players are startin’ shit with waiters.

One sub-plot of this so-stupid-I-just-can’t-stop-blogging-about-it! story is that McCoy was eating at what is ostensibly a burger joint, and if you’ll recall from this ESPN article, McCoy has been following Kelly’s dietary restrictions to the point that he didn’t have cake on his birthday (cake’s overrated, by the way). So PYT seemed like a strange choice. But as it turns out, even while Embittering Hipsters (that needs to be a band name, Jim) McCoy stuck to the plan. From the Inquirer and its 1998-with-a-decent-font webpage:

McCoy and three friends took a booth by the window around 2:30 p.m. Monday. Business was slow – just three tables outside and three people at the bar. Up arrived after McCoy’s group was seated, and he didn’t know immediately who they were.

There were problems, he concedes. The waiter forgot an appetizer. McCoy ordered a lobster crab cake burger, no bun, no tomato. Up said the 5-foot-11, 208-pound back recoiled at the mayo-based sauce.

“Do you think I eat that?” Up recalled McCoy as saying.

The waiter was nervous but attentive, Up said.

At one point, a manager held up a laptop to the table so the party could watch the coverage of the video showing Ray Rice attacking his fiance.

At another point, Up said, some loud, off-color remarks about women came from the table, causing his co-owner, Sarah Brown, to move from the next booth.

No bun, no tomato(?), no mayo! Chip would be so damn proud. PRETTY YOUNG THINGS, REPEAT AFTER ME. SAY NA NA NA, NA NA NA!!!!!!!!

LeSean McCoy Doubles down on Being a Dick, Says He’d Leave Tip All over Again

12279_10152742977281477_3414087092559257198_n

Everyone’s doubling down this week. The NFL is doubling down on not having seen the video. PYT is doubling down on posting a receipt of LeSean McCoy’s shitty tip. And McCoy is doubling down on leaving his shitty tip. Speaking to reporters today:

“The 20 cent tip was kind of a statement,” McCoy told reporters Thursday afternoon during a scheduled press conference. “I didn’t do anything wrong and if I had to do it again, I’d do it the same way.”

“Just to be honest, like I’m always, I tip on my service. I think there’s a difference between good service and bad service or just having a bad day. There’s a big difference with just being rude and disrespectful. That’s how that went,” McCoy said.

“In any restaurant I go around in Philadelphia, I tip very well. I’m very respectful,” McCoy said. “You can’t be disrespectful and just expect somebody to tip you. I don’t’ care who the person is. That’s why I left my card, so they could see my name. Simple as that.”

“If you check on that restaurant, the backlash that has from everybody talking bad about that place, but good food, good food,” McCoy said.

Good food, good foodBut servers so bad I’m willing to take national backlash over my shitty tip. Not gonna lie– kinda like Shady’s conviction here.

Charlie Sheen Pledges $1,000 Tip to PYT Waiter Because WTF?

12279_10152742977281477_3414087092559257198_n

Honestly, I think Sean Connery missed a big opportunity here.

Charlie Sheen, ever the oportunist, has announced(?) that he’s giving Rob Knelly, the server whom Tommy Up claims was a huge McCoy and Eagles fan but who’s actually a Ravens fan, $1,000:

Annnnnnnd this story has officially jumped the shark. In related news: I am now a waiter and someone just didn’t leave me a tip. WHERE YOU AT, GARY BUSEY?

H/T to (@jayteg), reader Joe
