UPDATE: LeSean McCoy Has a Hamstring

Voila_Capture 2015-08-19_08-30-23_AMVoila_Capture 2015-08-19_08-30-35_AM

A potentially injured one.

A source tells ESPN’s Josina Anderson that McCoy returned to Buffalo last night to have his left hammy evaluated. She was told it “didn’t look good on the field” but that McCoy was feeling better by late last night.

Not saying I was rooting for McCoy to get hurt, but a bothersome hammy strain seems like a nice karma backwash for our late August amusement.* And keep in mind: everyone is making a big deal about DeMarco Murray’s workload last season, but it’s McCoy, 27, the age at which running backs decline, who’s carried more over the course of his career.

*Of course, Kiko Alonso is concussed.

UPDATE: Mike Florio is reporting that McCoy is expected to be ready by Week 1.

LeSean McCoy Didn’t Have an Orgy, for What It’s Worth

mccoy1

LeSean McCoy experienced some immediate blow-back when he announced his creepy, ladies only, sign your life away birthday party. He got a talking to about using the Bills logo, and he ended up doing something else. Still, he sees himself as the victim in this:

“Out of context.” Right. He keeps using that phrase. I do not think that phrase means what he thinks it means. Let’s see:

Well I guess we’ll never know. In context though, that party looked super creepy.

LeSean McCoy Zags, Throws Himself a Pity Party Instead

Pictured here is whom reader Mike claims is LeSean McCoy, sitting at the Famous Dave’s in Cherry Hill yesterday, waiting for his takeout. He appears to be enjoying himself a cold glass of lemon water as opposed to, say, taking unsuspecting adult females to land far, far away.

Last night on the ‘Gram, McCoy lamented the apparent cancellation of his previously scheduled Cosby party:

For the pictorially challenged, here’s the full text of that silly rant:

In case you’re wondering, reader Mike says he talked to the bartender at Famous Dave’s and was informed that McCoy left the takeout waitress a good tip.

What did I tell you? Bills statement about this flyer for LeSean McCoy’s private creepfest:

“We have reached out to LeSean and informed him that players are not permitted to use team marks for personal use without prior permission from the team.”

Somewhere, Chip Kelly is having himself a good laugh. Your problem now, suckers. #culture

Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

This post is part of The Crosswalk, Crossing Broad’s reader submitted section. While checked for basic quality and readability, it is not edited by Crossing Broad, and all opinions expressed are those of the author, for better or worse. If you’re interested in having your work appear on Crossing Broad, fill out the short sign up form here.

The most compelling story in the dumpster fire that is the Philadelphia sports scene is Chip Kelly and his need to borrow a shit to give one about what people think about how the fans, the media and his former players feel about how he wields his newfound autonomy as general manager.

Chip has become the most endorsable sports figure in Philly but let’s be real, the Tostitos thing went stale quickly. Evan Mathis was the latest to see his time with the Eagles KO’d by Chip (even if it was by request). We haven’t seen this type of carnage since Mike Tyson in his prime. The video game industry has picked up on the trend and found the perfect game to tie the “could he be a racist or is he just a megalomaniac?” head coach/general manager to: The “could it be racist or is it just one big chain of lazy stereotypes?” Punch-Out!! Series.

Welcome, Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

Remember: Don’t waste your knockout punch on Tra Full of Bull if he’s not stunned.

The Eagles Have No Comment on McCoy’s Comments, But Stephen A. Smith Does

So LeSean McCoy strongly implied that Chip Kelly doesn’t like black people. Well, good black football players at least. Which also implies that every black player currently on the Eagles isn’t very good, and that is just rude. Anyway, the Eagles (and by default Chip Kelly) had no response, but that doesn’t mean no one else did. Jim Rome is willing to admit that Chip might be a bit crazy but he’s probably not a racist:

rome

Derrick Gunn says it’s just Shady being Shady, which could point to why he’s not with the team anymore:

Bomani Jones kinda goes along that same thread. It’s not that Chip Kelly doesn’t like good black players, it’s an attitude thing, which can be a risky stance to take in the NFL:

On today’s edition of First Take (I watched it so you don’t have to), Stephen A. Smith said he appreciated LeSean McCoy’s honesty, said he wouldn’t toot his own horn, and then loudly tooted his own horn. “I’m gonna say this so everybody will know,” Smith said. “I talk to people. I specifically told you that the day I said it about Chip Kelly. No matter what sport it is, if I open my mouth and I tell you a perspective it’s because I speak to folks inside locker rooms.” It’s worth noting that the “specifically told you” part he’s referencing only mentioned “brothas walking the streets,” not anyone in a locker room. But what’s Stephen A. Smith supposed to do, quote himself correctly? He goes on to say the players he spoke to said the same thing about DeSean and LeSean and Maclin’s departures, conveniently forgetting that Maclin is gone because Andy Reid overpaid for him.

Stephen A. continued, saying he “heard” that the only reason DeMarco Murray is in Philadelphia is because Chip was feeling heat on the racism front and “felt compelled to make a move.” At least that’s what Stephen A. says “players” thought — air quotes his own — basically that DeMarco Murray is being paid so Chip can prove he has a black friend. “These are the things that I was told,” Smith said.

Skip Bayless had Smith’s back, even going as far as to thank McCoy for referencing Stephen A., thus giving attention to First Take. Both of these guys suck. “Is it racist, or is it just the fact that all of his skill position stars just happen to be black,” Bayless asked Smith. That’s where the online clip cuts off, and thank God because I could not take any more of that.

We’re almost at the point now where two dichotomous things are true. First, Chip Kelly shouldn’t have to respond to this because it’s ridiculous. And secondly, Chip Kelly has to respond because this is ridiculous. I’m fine either way, but until Chip hires Stephen A. Smith himself to replace Dave Spadaro, this isn’t going to end.

LeSean McCoy Blatantly Calls Chip Kelly a Racist

LeSean McCoy, talking to ESPN The Magazine:

You told The Philadelphia Inquirer in April that Chip doesn’t “like or respect stars.” What was the problem with you and Chip, and how did that relationship end?

The relationship was never really great. I feel like I always respected him as a coach. I think that’s the way he runs his team. He wants the full control. You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players. He got rid of them the fastest. That’s the truth. There’s a reason. … It’s hard to explain with him. But there’s a reason he got rid of all the black players — the good ones — like that. [Editor’s note: The Eagles declined to comment on McCoy’s statements.]

How many other players have shared that thought with you?

Oh, man. People have heard it. I mean … Stephen A. Smith has talked about it. Other players have talked about it. But that’s one of the things where you don’t even care no more. I’m on a new team, ready to play. So it’s nothing to do with Chip. I have no hatred toward him, nothing to say negative about him. When he got [to Philadelphia], I didn’t know what to expect. When he let DeSean go last year, I was like: “C’mon. DeSean Jackson?” So it is what it is.

A good counter to this RIDICULOUS perception of Chip, and McCoy’s completely absurd comments – which display what a genuine douche he is – would be a pictorial of the Eagles’ drat picks:

Or their biggest offseason signing:

Or their second-biggest offseason signing:

Voila_Capture 2015-05-06_10-59-55_AM

But yeah, Chip Kelly hates black people. Right, Kanye?

Lesean Mccoy Said the Signing of Demarco Murray Was a “Panic Move”

Photo Credit:

Photo Credit: Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Appearing as a guest on the Rich Eisen Show, LeSean McCoy talked about his trade, and if he thinks Chip Kelly knows what he’s doing:

“I didn’t understand it. I should say that. And Chip, I think is a really good coach. I think this is something different for him kind of managing both … I see that they originally were trying to get Frank Gore and he backed out so then when they got DeMarco and they got Ryan Mathews I thought it was like a panic move.”

You know what? Maybe it was a panic move, but — granted, before a snap has been played — it looks like it worked out pretty well.
