It can be argued that the Cowboys/Colts matchup in Week 16 is even more important for Eagles fans than the Eagles/Redskins one. But for the players, their minds are 100% focused on the Redskins game, and one last chance to show-up former Eagle DeSean Jaccson. But LeSean McCoy thought: Why wait for the game?

As Redskins reporter Dianna Marie Russini told us last week, DeSean’s tenure with the Redskins this year has been classic DeSean: throwing teammates under the bus, complaining in private, complaining in public, generally being the worst. There’s especially been strain between DeSean and whomever his QB may be — mostly RG3. So when Shady decided to poke some light fun at DeSean and his reputation, it looked like it was a “no harm no foul” deal. The addition of “RG3 would agree haha” in the caption is a nice touch, but I really don’t think RG3 (or any ‘Skins fan) is laughing. It’s also a nice touch to deliberately spell “jackpot” the correct way.

As a side note: This is the kind of stuff the internet is good for. You got your analysis and your reporting and all of that stuff, but it’s also great that stuff like this — not exactly “news” per se, but a message directly from player-to-fan — can be put out there for fans and whomever else to enjoy. Or …

Don’t look now, NFL Network News Desk, but you’re ruining it.


LeSean McCoy is Probably Only Dating One of the Two Reality Stars He was Dating Before

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 9.54.14 AM

A little over a month ago we found out that Shady was either dating Kordell Stewart’s ex or J.R. Smith’s ex or both, but now we know he’s probably just dating J.R. Smith’s ex or neither. According to Bossip — I cover the Bossip beat now — that Tweet above is evidence that Porsha Williams is no longer with LeSean McCoy. Thus is the power of an “um nooo.” Williams also said in an interview with OK Magazine:

“I want to be clear that because of Bravo I have all these amazing opportunities. I really don’t know how much I will be featured this season. My fans will see me and I will be with my girls. However, I don’t believe my personal story of rebuilding & dating will be shown. The young man I was dating couldn’t film until later in the season.”

So we won’t see much of Shady on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, which is a huge loss I’m sure we will all feel in our hearts. And personally, I think the girl McCoy was dating in 2012 was much prettier anyway.


LeSean McCoy Says the 4-12 2012 Eagles Were More Talented than the Current Team

LeSean McCoy said some things on his weekly radio show at Chickie’s and Pete’s with Anthony Gargano and, this week, Eagles pitchman Dave Spadaro. About mid-way through, the conversation turned to how far the Eagles have improved over the 4-12 2012 team. That’s when McCoy got nutty and Spadaro was forced to (rightly) go into full OH HOLY SHIT damage control mode:

McCoy: “When we had that terrible season, we were very talented. Very, very talented. I want to say, even more or just as talented. I would say more. I would say more talented than this team, I think.

Spadaro: “No.”

Gargano: “The 4-12 team more talented than this one?”

Spadaro, presumably shooting daggers at McCoy and reminding him that he was on live radio and OFF-MESSAGE: “Shady and I are looking at each other here talking about this…”

McCoy, who just managed to offend Jordan Matthews and Riley Cooper: “We had Maclin and DeSean.”

Spadaro: “Yeah, but, the offensive line.”

McCoy: “Was hurt.”

Spadaro: “Was hurt. Now it’s healthy. Now you have Ertz coming in. More depth. You got Sproles helping out.”

McCoy: “Ah yeah, you’re right.”

Spadaro: “Little more depth at quarterback.”

It continued:

McCoy, forgetting that his defense just turned in a wonderful performance: “The line makes everything go, it’s hard to say. The talent level, though, I don’t know. I mean, you know the defense (referring to the 2012 team).”

Spadaro, looking for the dump button: “Defense is a lot better now.”

McCoy: “I forget, was Asante on that team?”

Spadaro: “No, that was DRC..”

McCoy, for some reason fondly remembering DRC: “Woooooah!”

Spadaro, setting the conversation up for an easy turn around: “And Nnamdi.”

McCoy, doing what everyone does when they hear that name: “[Laughs.]”

Shady just wouldn’t let it go and rattled off the names of Eagles past:

McCoy: “We had Trent, we had Babin… we had Mike Vick, Cullen Jenkins. You know, that’s hard to say. It’s close, how about that? It’s close.”

Gargano: “Special teams is way better now.”

McCoy, agreeing: “Yeah the special teams is way better now.”

Spadaro, with the loaded question of the night: “Is the coaching a lot better now?”

McCoy, missing an opportunity to save face: “Ah, as far as what? Because Andy, you know. “

That was about it. Shady did admit that Sproles is a better returner than D-Jac. But my God, what is he thinking? The names he cited to back up his argument: DeSean Jaccson, DRC, Mike Vick, Cullen Jenkins and JASON BABIN. There’s no doubt that some of those guys had(!) supreme physical abilites, but with the exception of maybe DeSean, you couldn’t argue that you’d want the 2012 version of any of those guys on this team, which, by the way, IS 7-2(!!!).

Audio can be heard here– around the 14-minute mark. It’s worth listening to just to hear Spadaro’s panicked WTF reaction alone.

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


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.
