Woman-beater pitchman Stephen A. Smith, who looks and is shaped like Jar Jar Binks fused with Jaleel White, was on Mike Missanelli’s show today to discuss LeSean McCoy’s comments accusing Chip Kelly of being a racist which cited Stephen A. Smith’s comments trumpeting random people on the street who allege Chip Kelly is a racist. As part of the ~20-minute conversation during which Stephen A. repeatedly said he wasn’t calling Chip Kelly a racist, Screamin’ A. continually resorted to questioning why LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jaccson are gone but not Riley Cooper:
SAS: I’m saying: I didn’t play for Chip Kelly. I don’t know the man. LeSean McCoy knows him. So for him to say that, WHOA. Why would he do that? He didn’t say that about Andy Reid. Why’s he saying it about Chip Kelly? For what?
MM: I mean, maybe he’s still butthurt that he traded him.
SAS: Maybe, MAYBE! But maybe that’s not it. Because he did get 40 million, he is in Buffalo playing for Rex Ryan. It’s not like he’s outside the NFL looking for a job.
SAS: The bottom line is, LeSean McCoy knows Chip Kelly better than you or I. You can try to dismiss him all you want to but in the end what it comes down to — undoubtedly so, I might add — is the fact that he feels the way that I intimated,that several members of the Eagles locker room was feeling, and when I said it everyone attacked me like I called Chip Kelly something.
I’m not SAYIN’ he’s A racist, MIKE, but I’M JUST SAYIN, we should QUESTion WHETHER he’s a RACIST OR not. YA FEELIN me?
More Stephen A.:
SAS: All of these people out here that wanna stick out their chest and bloviate, and act like somebody is creating something that don’t exist and all of this, wake the hell up. Ask yourself the question. That’s all I’m saying. And the question is not are you a racist, we’re not saying that about Chip Kelly [Editor’s note: What?] The question for Chip Kelly is this: You got rid of DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy. In the NFL where talent takes front stage, and you kept Riley Cooper. Can you please explain that us why you did that? [Editor’s note: If that’s not asking Chip if race plays a part here, I don’t understand the question.]
By the way, I reached out to the Philadelphia Eagles weeks ago, the minute I said it, and I said I would like a one-on-one sit down with Chip Kelly. I am still waiting for a comment.
Stephen A. makes substantially more money than me and just about everyone else who comments on sports for a living. And that makes me sad. I should do something outlandish, like co-host a radio show with John Bolaris or something similarly crazy. It seems crazy is where the money is.
Jim: It’s honestly insane to me that the dude who was basically one step short of stroking Mayweather’s dick on TV is calling out Chip Kelly for being a questionable person.
