Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy has had plenty to say about his former coach Chip Kelly, and was particularly vocal about the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach last week in the days leading up to yesterday’s matchup between both teams.
However, after Philadelphia beat Buffalo 23-20, in a game that saw McCoy hug Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and kiss the Eagles logo at midfield before kickoff, McCoy was nowhere to be found and did not speak to reporters.
In doing so, McCoy drew the ire of ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who called the running back “weak” and “low class” on First Take this morning.
It’s hard to argue with Smith’s opinion on this, as McCoy made the entire week about himself and getting back at Kelly, who dealt McCoy to Buffalo during the offseason in a move that was a head-scratcher at the time.
There were even reports of McCoy receiving a call from Kelly, only to hang up on him. McCoy also said that he would not even shake Kelly’s hand.
Long story short, McCoy came out of this looking like a diva, a big baby, a head case, whatever you want to call it. It was clear that he played with his head yesterday and not his heart and though he didn’t have an awful game, he certainly didn’t win himself any new fans with this behavior.
