LeSean McCoy: Chip Kelly Got Rid of 'All the Good Black Players': LeSean McCoy on his former coach Chip Kelly: "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."

I can't say I believe there's a racial issue at work here, but getting rid of DeSean Jackson still baffles me.

I still think that Chip Kelly is getting post-hypnotic suggestions advising him to blow up the team so he can return to college ball.

The spirit voice comes to him in his sleep and whispers: "What would Celtics coach Rick Pitino do?"


"Why test yourself against Jay Gruden when you can test yourself against Nick Saban?"

Kelly is also probably getting paid under the table in cash by ESPN to do stuff that their in-house nutcases like Smith can freely interpret as they so choose.

I have a blind spot here because the first time I saw Jackson play was the game where he put the ball down just before the end zone and I thought, "That's something an asshole would do." Nothing subsequent to that has shaken my feeling so I can see not wanting to pay that guy long-term.

Interesting to find out Nick Foles is black and DeMarco Murray is white.

As an Eagles fan, I appreciate all he did, but McCoy comes off like a spoiled prick.
