LeSean McCoy Wants To Bring Cops To Next Game Against Colin Kaepernick

Philadelphia Eagles 2011 Headshots

While plenty of black NFL players have come out in support of Colin Kaepernick‘s national anthem protest,  LeSean McCoy doesn’t appear to be one of them.

In fact McCoy is taking things a bit further by bringing a group of 15 to 20 cops to the Buffalo Bills’ next game. McCoy said that it has yet to be determined whether the officers will come for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers or the October 30 game against the New England Patriots.

McCoy is doing it to show the police that they are appreciated despite recent events.

“Just an appreciation type of thing,” McCoy said. “Cause they’re taking so much heat right now. There’s things that are happening that’s definitely wrong but I just feel like there’s bad people, there’s bad cops and there’s good cops.”

The plan is currently being set up through his foundation and says it has nothing to do with Kaepernick’s protest.

“I reached out to them,” McCoy said. “Like I said, it has nothing to do with Kap or the situation. I think that he might be doing the right thing because everybody’s opinion, there’s never a wrong opinion. I think he’s right for what he’s saying we need to do something about what’s going on because it is wrong. Then again, there’s good people and there’s bad people. There’s good cops and bad cops. So I’m just trying to show appreciation.”

Chip Kelly Isn’t A Racist, He Just Despises Social Media Flexin’ [Opinion]

Let’s get this out the way immediately when it comes to Chip Kelly and the Riley Cooper situation, he in no way shape or form should be on the Philadelphia Eagles. Period. What he said was despicable, and should not be tolerated in any work place in this country. No excuse is plausible enough to even justify using such a vial word in any instance, drunk, angry, anything. If Chip Kelly were to have just released Cooper after the incident, or let him go as a free agent the following year, the comments made by LeSean McCoy couldn’t even be discussed as reasonable. But Chip Kelly did in fact let Cooper stay on the team, and even allowed him to get a new contract to stay around for the next few years. This is something I will never understand and can’t sit here and justify it in any way.

Lets dig deeper into this issue, rather than just look at it on surface alone. The questions still come up frequently in Philadelphia sports talk, what reason does Chip Kelly have to release superstars like LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson? Who is this college coach coming into the NFL thinking he can win on his system alone, when we all know as die hard football fans it takes talent to win championships!

But when you really look at it, yes talent is always needed, but when your at the top of your profession, isn’t everyone talented? What differentiates between dynasty football teams, and constant bottom feeders? It’s a plan, it’s a mind state, it’s a culture, and this is what Chip Kelly is beginning to shape into form as how he see’s it fit.

There are two players I want to solely focus on when it comes to this study, and that is Jackson and McCoy. Was it talent, certainly not. Was it race? Well Chip Kelly did just draft 5 black players out of 6 in the 2015 draft. So probably not. Then what else could it be? To me, the answer lies in one place, the Internet, and the infiltration of social media into our everyday lives.

Culture is defined as “a way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization (such as a business).” This is what Chip Kelly is now establishing. He came into the league, and essentially played his first 2 seasons with the players Andy Reid brought in and developed, his culture. When the Eagles brought in a “new boss”, they knew they were also bringing in a new culture, because the old one wasn’t working (no playoff wins since 2008).

So, in comes Chip Kelly, a man who wants his type of players. Lots of moves have been made and questioned, but I want to compare the two players let go by Chip, with the two players Chip essentially replaced them with, Jordan Mathews and Demarco Murray and why the internet holds those answers  to the questions eagles fans are searching for.

It’s called social media, and it is still in such its early stages of understanding. We are finally starting to see people, places, and things in an all-new light, including celebrities and athletes who garner millions of views from people all over the globe.

Let’s take a look at Jordan Mathews social media accounts compared to DeSean Jackson. First off, it seems Jordan Mathews once had an Instagram, but seemed to delete it sometime while in college or prior to entering the NFL, (smart man). On Mathews Twitter account (@jmattjmattjmatt), you can see the only things he seems concerned about in his social media life are two things, his career/ improving his craft as a NFL wide receiver, and his love for Kanye West (again smart man).

Compared to DeSean, @OneOfOne on IG, Jackson is an infamous Instagram flexor. He does post a lot of pictures and videos of him working out, but then there is also those frequent pictures of DJack in the club, DJack hanging out with so and so, DJack stunting in his Benz, to whatever DJack feels like posting. And if you remember, Jackson posted some subtle shots on social media when a problem arose with him and Kelly (always a bad idea).

Let’s use this past weekend, the biggest day in sports (May 2, 2015) for example. On social media, DeSean is out in Vegas for the fight, and continues to flaunt that lifestyle. Out at a club, living it up. Compared to Kelly’s choice, Mathews.

Just a bunch of encouraging comments to new NFL players during the draft, made one bland statement about the fight, and asked why it feels like I’m about to play Tekken… DeSean on the other hand, two words, Vegas Baby.

Oh and he now has a reality show, well in his words, “a mini-documentary series” coming out this year.

Now lets take a look at Shady McCoy’s replacement, Demarco Murray. If he has an Instagram page, it’s harder to find then Waldo. There may be a page with his name, but has zero posts. Let’s take a look at Twitter. Demarco Murray (@DeMarcoMurray) only has 732 tweets, a few pictures of him and football, and a sprinkling of some off the field activities such as endorsements and family. Let’s look at his “big sports weekend” like we did with Mathews and Jackson. Well Murray hasn’t tweeted since April 7th.

We all know the turmoil Shady has had when it comes to social media and using it in all the wrong ways. As well as the infamous 18-cent tip that went viral.

Let’s take it all back to using last weekend as a “reason” of why Chip Kelly got rid of Jackson and McCoy. How was Shady acting on social media during the NFL draft and the “biggest weekend in sports?” Well, if you didn’t see the username, you probably couldn’t tell the difference between McCoy and Jackson’s social media actions.

Now, is Chip Kelly basing his football culture off of social media? Probably not. But we need to dig deeper then just throwing out terms like “racism” with little to back that claim up, especially when trying to explain Chip Kelly’s decisions on a football field. To imply racism cheapens its meaning of the term in a world and country where real problems truly do lie. I am the same age as DeSean and LeSean, so I do not want to come off as some old guy mad at young men out enjoying there life and sharing their moments on social media like millions of others do everyday. There is also no problem and going out and enjoying your off season. But when you think about it, on average, NFL players at best have 10 seasons to make money for the rest of their lives. You can live it up when its all over, don’t you want players on your Philadelphia Eagles that only care about football at this stage of their life? Did we see Dawkins out at the club? Did we see Brian Westbrook “turnt up” in Vegas? No, and it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, but there was never a medium created at that time that gave access like Instagram and Twitter do today. So whether players were doing that type of stuff or not, it wasn’t thrown in your face like it is today because of the new “TMZ” world we live in.

Let’s make this as simple as possible. If you have groups of young 20 year old players every year coming into the Philadelphia Eagles locker room each season, a whole bunch of wide eyed college students who just received more money then they have ever seen in their entire lives, need veterans to look to and mold how they are going to go about there career. In a nut shell, do you want the players looking up to guys like Mathews and Murray, who solely based on their social media accounts, care about two things, football and family, and in Jordan’s case, Kanye West.

Comparing that scenario to LeSean and DeSean, who clearly are about that superstar, look at me, celebrity lifestyle. They love being famous, and can be questioned based off of their social media accounts, maybe as much as football. And this is a culture Kelly isn’t going to allow to be established.

Does it mean he will win because of this so called “culture”? No, of course it doesn’t, and this may completely backfire in his face. And if that does happen, fans will brutalize him. But until that happens, insinuating racism in a culture that is festered monthly by tragic tails riddled in racist acts just isn’t fare.

Now some of this article is slightly written in tongue and cheek, do I know if Chip Kelly even pays attention to social media for a fact? Of course not, but I want people to look at this situation in a deeper magnitude rather than just pointing fingers and saying, 2 black players were released, Chip must have a problem with black people, making him a racist, which to me, is a shallow way of thinking, especially when it comes to the importance of dealing with racism.

I used the social media aspect as an example because today, for right or wrong, it seems sometimes the way people see others and their lifestyles is through their social media accounts. When it comes to the two players released, it’s clear they enjoy football, but seem to love themselves and the outside privileges that come with being in the NFL. Equated to their replacements, Mathews and Murray, who are all football all the time, and live a much more simplistic life based off their social media accounts, just like the head honcho, Chip Kelly, who eats and sleeps football 24/7.

Is Chip Kelly a perfect GM and football coach so far, nope, but is he a racist, no, does he despise the new societal norm of social media and flexin’ on the gram with the millennial culture, that answer appears to be very apparent. The Chip Kelly saga continues on, and only time will tell, which is the right way to handle the new era of football players and the power of a brand new outlet that coaches, bosses, corporations, etc. are continuing to learn and adapt with during a new technological era that we live in, and because of its infancy, we continue to try and learn the proper ways of using such a powerful outlet, and that, is where the problem lies. Sometimes it goes beyond the surface, and isn’t as simple as saying something is just black and white.

LeSean McCoy Blasts Chip Kelly: ‘There’s A Reason He Got Rid Of All The Black Players’

Months after his trade from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Buffalo Bills, running back LeSean McCoy has opened up about his former team.

The new Bills running back talked at length about the move and race relations with Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

McCoy told ESPN The Mag, “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.”

The former Eagles star also said that he wasn’t the only person who feels that way. “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.”

McCoy is now starting a new chapter in his life in Buffalo and is ready to earn that five-year, $40 million contract he signed.

Despite the fact that he “didn’t want to [go to Buffalo]” at first, the situation has changed a lot since then. He’s also enjoying his new coach, Rex Ryan and his “laid-back” style.

McCoy is entering an important stage in his career. The 26-year-old is facing the statistical cliff for running backs— at 27 many NFL running backs start to lose a step. We’ll see how he performs for his new team.

Porsha Williams Shoots Down Rumors About Her Sex Life & Naomi Campbell

 

Coincidently, Porsha had hinted at being with someone new on social media months ago, but there’s chatter that she’s back on the market after their recent split. And she fell out of her chair when Gary asked about rumors that she’s been spotted canoodling with another woman.

Now Porsha doesn’t deny that she’ll give her friends a peck when they meet up, but that’s not the same thing as a full-on smooch session in some secluded corner of a restaurant. “Kissing? That’s just ludicrous! I’m close with my friends and when I see my girlfriends I’m like, ‘Hello…’” she explained while pretending to kiss a friend on the cheek.

We’re not sure how giving someone a small smooch turned into a full-on affair, but whoever’s been peddling that rumor was really reaching.

Philly Eagles Running Back LeSean McCoy Accused Of Assaulting Woman On Party Bus

LeSean McCoy

 

LeSean McCoy, Running Back for the Philadelphia Eagles, is being sued for allegedly assaulting a woman calling herself “Mary Roe”, on a party bus heading back to Philadelphia from a trip to an NYC Club last December.

Mary Roe, is suing the running back claiming he  humiliated her on a party bus, sprayed her with water and then kicked her off the party bus and left her stranded on the Jersey Turnpike.

Court documents allege that;

 ”The Philadelphia Eagles running back invited 15 women to join him on a party bus that went from Philly to a NYC nightclub on December 18, 2012. During the trip, McCoy, along with his bodyguard and a couple of other guys, began to spray some of the women with water. Roe claims she protested the water spraying so McCoy ordered his bodyguard Big John to “get her.

Roe claims McCoy and/or Big John proceeded to hit her in the face, causing her to fall to the ground. While she was on the floor, the men allegedly physically restrained her and poured a beverage onto her hair, clothes and body. McCoy and Big John then allegedly, forcibly ejected her from the party bus on to the side of the New Jersey Turnpike.

However some of the women allegedly complained to McCoy about Roe getting the boot, so she was snatched back up from the side of the road and placed back on the bus. The woman claims she was taken to a nearby rest stop, where allegedly the football player once again ditched her and continued on with his party trip. “

As a result of those allegations, Roe is now suing McCoy for more than $50,000 in damages for assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence.

Roe says she suffered;

“Head trauma, a disc protrusion on her spine, bad sprains, contusions and bruises all over her body, and severe shock.”

However, in the police report that was taken back in December, when the incident allegedly happened, police wrote that they did not observe any visible marks or sings of injury on her body.

And New Jersey State Police Sergeant Brian Polite tells TMZ,

“During the initial meeting with the accuser, she never named McCoy as her attacker.”

Says Andrew M. Smith, LeSean McCoy’s Attorney;

“The allegations against LeSean McCoy are completely, unequivocally false.There are no criminal charges pending [against McCoy] and no probable cause was ever found.This is sadly an attempt to extract money and LeSean will vigorously defend any attempt to collect money through a personal injury claim.”

Wow! We know we will be staying tuned to this story and updating it as information becomes available. Sounds like this ride might get bumpy! Buckle up!

LeSean McCoy Fights With Baby Mama On Twitter

StephMcCoyBabyMamaAnother day another athlete embarrassing himself online. LeSean “Shady” McCoy lived up to his nickname Saturday night when he became embroiled in a Twitter battle with his baby mama, calling her names and insisting his followers also harass her on the social media site. A few hours later, the Eagles running back took down his Twitter page entirely.

The baby mama drama all began when McCoy innocently tweeted that he was in Puerto Rico on vacation. This led to a number of replies from @Angelface0330, whose account is still active, about the fact that McCoy is not involved enough with their son who was born in April, according to the woman named Steph’s Twitter profile. Steph also said McCoy has herpes, mocked his penis size, said his good friend had sex with his current girlfriend and also suggested that McCoy had recently performed oral sex on her in efforts to avoid child support payments.

Not the kind of comments you want to make if you want someone to agree to your demands. McCoy, ego bruised no doubt, replied that Steph was a “broke bum” and a “nobody” who was trying to make her name off their son and told his followers to “Tell @Angelface0330 to get a job n stop begging for child support money she a BUM needs me to LIVE sad!!!”

McCoy continued the tirade: “I hit u n a week without knowing ya name .. My son the only reason u have a life u broke stop frontn on IG …U BUM.”

Very classy. If she was such a random groupie why impregnate her?

Are These The Leaders Of The New School?

My, How things have changed. I remember looking at an interview of Jerry Rice talking about the NFL Pro Bowl and what it meant to him. He talked about how when he showed up he worked the hardest of any athlete on the field to make them aware of what it would take to be able to compete with him. Even though you may think he was putting on a display on how to be a professional, he was letting the younger guys know that they really couldn’t mess with him. It was never a friendly gesture, but more of a way of him marking his territory and making sure you knew he was the G.O.A.T

Turn to the 2012 Pro Bowl and the effort shown by the players sucked. Scoring points doesn’t matter. Challenging the man in front of you is what the game is about. I know it’s hard for the players to get excited about a meaningless game, but you’re a professional athlete and lack of effort is never acceptable.

The NFL just signed a TV deal that will pay the NFL and its players upwards of 6 Billion dollars a year. Let me help make that a little more clear for you; 6,000,000,000. It amazes me that the NFL focuses so much on how it’s product is presented that it could continue to let a game featuring its best players look worse than a preseason game.

How do you feel about our very own LeSean Mccoy jogging to the line when they gave him the ball on the NFC’s first offensive possession?

Where does the Pro Bowl rank in professional sports All Star games. Basketball, Baseball, Hockey, Football?
