LeSean McCoy deleted the Twitter account he used to attack the mother of his child over the weekend. That was considerate of him. Unfortunately, he can't come around and scrub all of our memories, one by one. So we can't pretend we don't know way too much about McCoy, his character, and his personal life. You may feel that this whole thing is nobody's business and so shouldn't be the subject of a column. I would counter that it's the subject of a column only because McCoy inflicted his ugly personal business on the rest of us. When a college football player was very nice to a woman who didn't exist, it became the biggest story in the country.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie married Philadelphia resident Tina Lai in a private ceremony this weekend. Lurie, 61, announced last July that he and Christina Weiss Lurie were getting divorced after 20 years of marriage. Lai will have no official role in the Eagles organization. The wedding was attended by family and close friends. "I am happy and excited as Tina and I begin our lives together," Lurie said in a statement. Lai, 39, is from a family that owns restaurants in Philadelphia, including the Vietnam Restaurant in Chinatown and the Vietnam Cafe in University City.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie tied the knot this weekend with Tina Lai in small ceremony. Lai, who was born in 1973, took over managing Vietnam Restaurant in 2008 from her brother, Benny Lai , but no longer works at the Chinatown staple. (Seriously, summer rolls to die for over there.) "We're very excited for Tina and Jeffrey," said a rep for the family, who also owns Vietnam Cafe in West Philadelphia, adding that they would like to keep the matter personal. Lai is the youngest of eight siblings.

This is a post from Rich Hofmann's blog, The Idle Rich, on Philly.com HIS OFFICE? Your office? "His office," Jeffrey Lurie said. "When Andy and I talked, especially about these kinds of things, it was usually in his office. I just thought you showed respect by doing it that way. " It was coming up on 9 o'clock on Monday morning. That is when the Eagles' owner took the walk down the hall, the walk that he had been dreading. Out the door, down the hall, into a common area and then over to the football side of the NovaCare Complex.

"You won't hear me talking about this during the season. . . . I don't like situations to become sideshows. It's just not my style. I'll reflect and analyze afterwards, and that's what I've always done. " - Jeffrey Lurie, Aug. 30, 2012 One man's situation is another's sideshow it would seem, but after what took place Monday night in Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles' season is officially only one bearded lady and one sword swallower from any given summer night in Wildwood.

Here's a proposition for Jeffrey Lurie, something that should add a little incentive as he sets out to hire a new head coach for the Eagles. The way things have turned out, Lurie is competing for a coach with longtime friend and colleague Joe Banner, who now runs the Cleveland Browns. That competition goes a long way toward explaining the veiled insults and revisionist history Lurie wove into his news conference Monday. Meanwhile, Andy Reid's search for a new job has led to interviews with Kansas City and Arizona, two places where the owners are not exactly perceived as gold-standard material.

PHOENIX - Jeffrey Lurie's presence at the Eagles private workout with top quarterback prospect Geno Smith last week was conspicuous because the team owner rarely takes part in such excursions. Lurie said Monday it was the first time he's attended a scouting trip since 1999, when the Eagles selected Donovan McNabb with the No. 2 overall pick. That is revealing for two reasons. It shows the importance of the Eagles' No. 4 overall pick, the earliest they've picked since nabbing McNabb.

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

Most of the 68,000-plus fans who cram into Lincoln Financial Field on a given Sunday during the NFL season are too young to have any recollection of Chuck Bednarik's decorated playing career. They know, however, who he is, what he did, and what he meant to the Eagles. Is that not the ultimate sign of greatness? How many living athletes in this or any other city will be able to say that more than 50 years after their careers ended they were still remembered and revered? Here's a hint: You can cut off some fingers and still count the ones in Philadelphia.

SOUTH BEACH, Fla. - Joe Banner wears banishment well. Seated at a window table inside a Miami trattoria where he knows all of the maitre d's witticisms, Banner is bearded and robust. The shaven, sallow shark who ruthlessly ran the Eagles for 18 years is gone. He enters his sixth decade with dignity. He and his wife, Helaine, will be empty-nesters in 3 months. They have rented a house near Philadelphia where their youngest, Jon, is finishing school, but they are borrowing a friend's high-rise condo here this entire month.

Chip Kelly said Wednesday that Howie Roseman had final say on the Eagles' last two drafts, including the selection of linebacker Marcus Smith in the first round last year. "Howie had final say on the decision," Kelly said when asked about the selection of Smith, who played only 68 snaps on defense in 2014. Aside from second-round wide receiver Jordan Matthews, the early returns on last year's draft haven't been encouraging. Former Oregon players Josh Huff and Taylor Hart, who played under Kelly in college, were selected in the third and fifth rounds.

THE EAGLES' front-office power shift was all Jeffrey Lurie's doing, Chip Kelly said yesterday. Oh, and trading way up for Marcus Mariota? Not gonna happen. The team's 2015 quarterback? Sam Bradford or Mark Sanchez, probably Bradford if he's healthy, from the tone of Kelly's remarks. Chip gets along just fine with Howie Roseman, he said, but the much-questioned drafting of Marcus Smith in the first round last year was Howie's fault. Anything we missed, hot-button topicwise?

If we take Chip Kelly at his word, the front-office makeover that took place shortly after the end of the Eagles season was nothing more than a whim of owner Jeffrey Lurie's desire. There were no threats of departure if general manager Howie Roseman remained in charge of personnel decisions. There was nary a nudge from the head coach to his boss. "I didn't think I needed control of the personnel," Kelly said Wednesday in his first public comments since taking control of personnel decisions.

It's a good thing Chip Kelly can coach because his general manager has blown up his roster and so far given him a bunch of question marks, including the injury-prone Sam Bradford after the Eagles traded Nick Foles to the Rams along with draft picks. Kelly, of course, will have no one to blame but himself because he's the GM, the Mastermind, the Lord Executioner, the Captain of the Eagles' ship. He's far from remaking the team, but the quarterback, running back, top wide receiver, starting right guard and outside linebacker have all walked the plank to other environs in the last two weeks and Kelly has had little to show in return.

Byron Maxwell, during a media tour last week, said that he "definitely . . . would have to consider" the Eagles if they were interested in signing him. No offense to Jeffrey Lurie's franchise, but Maxwell would consider the Philadelphia Soul if they could find a way into the NFL and pony up enough cash to lure the cornerback away from what is expected to be a host of suitors once free agency opens on Tuesday. "I'll stay in the back, but just give me the check," Maxwell said in January when he was asked whether he minded not having one of the prestige podiums during Super Bowl Media Day, even though he would be one of the more sought-after free agents.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ed Marynowitz's first seven months working for the Eagles overlapped with Andy Reid's final season in Philadelphia, giving Reid enough exposure to the team's new vice president of player personnel that the longtime coach praised Chip Kelly's decision to promote him. "Ed's on the rise, boy," Reid said Wednesday at the NFL's annual scouting combine. "He's a good one. I think it was a great choice by Chip. " In May 2012, the Eagles made seven front office transactions.

Chip Kelly spent 26 days searching for a personnel executive before promoting Ed Marynowitz, who was in the building all along. The Eagles named Marynowitz vice president of player personnel on Thursday, putting the 30-year-old Media native into the chief player evaluation role that opened after the front office shake-up in the week after the season ended. Marynowitz received a three-year contract. "Ed is someone who has really impressed me going back to my interview process with the Eagles two years ago," Kelly said in a statement.

PHOENIX - The Eagles interviewed the Seahawks director of college scouting, Scott Fitterer, for their personnel executive opening, but he decided to stay in Seattle, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said Tuesday. ESPN had reported that the Eagles were expected to interview Fitterer, but there was not any confirmation that a meeting had occurred until Schneider answered questions Tuesday at Super Bowl media day. "He spoke with the Philadelphia Eagles, kept it on the down low," Schneider said.
