WE COULD SPEND the next 800 to 1,000 words detailing the various logical shortcomings of the argument put forth by LeSean McCoy in yesterday's interview in ESPN The Magazine. But because such an endeavor would seem to imply the existence of expectations for him to fall short of in the first place, let's instead focus on the relevant aspects of the conclusions he draws. First, it seems we have our firmest evidence yet of why McCoy is no longer an Eagle: He is an awful teammate, perhaps destructively so. McCoy's contention that his former head coach "got rid of all of the good players.

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.

SO NOW that we've beaten to a pulp LeSean McCoy's jilted premise that Chip Kelly doesn't like talent-rich African-American players, the question remains: Why, exactly, is McCoy a Buffalo Bill these days and not a Philadelphia Eagle? Yes, I know Kelly's explanation claimed it was simply a monetary decision, that he could fill his linebacker need with a lesser-priced Kiko Alonso and have oodles of money left to add a lesser-priced running back - a two-for-one, I think it was called.

LeSean McCoy said he tips based on service and did not apologize for the 20-cent tip he left Monday for a waiter at PYT, a burger restaurant in Northern Liberties. "The 20-cent tip was more of just a statement," McCoy said. "You can't be disrespectful and disrespect someone, and tip [the server]. . . . That's why I left my card, so they can see my name. Simple as that. " PYT co-owner Tommy Up told The Inquirer this week that McCoy's party verbally abused the staff and made loud, off-color remarks about women.

LESEAN MCCOY set the bar exceptionally high for himself entering this season. More than 1,600 yards on the ground, a rushing title and preseason chatter of a 2,000-yard campaign tend to have that effect. And while McCoy's sixth NFL season - his second under coach Chip Kelly - didn't live up to the one that preceded it, the Eagles' running back added several more lines to his resume in 2014, chief among them the title as the franchise's all-time leading rusher. McCoy, who finished fifth in the Daily News Sportsperson of the Year voting, finishes the regular season third in the league in rushing, with 1,319 yards - his second-best single-season mark - to go with his five touchdowns.

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy released a statement Monday apologizing for a spat with the mother of his son on Twitter late Saturday night. In the public exchange on the social networking site, the woman criticized McCoy, saying he had abandoned their son, among other personal and graphic insults. McCoy responded with insults of his own, and even encouraged his followers to tell the woman to "get a job n stop begging for child support money. " "I would like to express how deeply sorry and remorseful I am to my family, the Philadelphia Eagles, my fans, and every young person who views me as a role model," McCoy said in the statement.

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is in the third phase of a five-step concussion recovery process that has already sidelined him for two games. He has progressed since last Friday, when McCoy was in the second stage, but he is still not able to return to the field. Trainer Rick Burkholder said last week that McCoy still displayed concussion symptoms, specifically fatigue. Coach Andy Reid said Monday that McCoy was still undergoing testing. Bryce Brown has starred in McCoy's absence.

LeSean McCoy hasn't been shy this offseason about calling himself the best running back in the NFL. On Wednesday, he accepted an award for being the best at something else. The Eagles running back received the John Wanamaker Athletic Award for being the athlete who "has done the most to reflect credit upon Philadelphia and the team or sport in which they excel. " McCoy was honored by the Philadelphia Sports Congress in the Crystal Team Room at the Wanamaker Building. McCoy became the sixth Eagles player to win the award and the first since Donovan McNabb in 2007.

There were many reasons that LeSean McCoy seemed stuck in neutral all game Sunday. The Redskins had decided they would stop the Eagles running back first and foremost. They stacked the box and did everything to take away running lanes. The Eagles offensive line was already battered, but by the end of the game right guard Todd Herremans was the last regular standing, and he was at right tackle. David Molk was in for injured center Jason Kelce. Andrew Gardner moved from right tackle to left tackle after Jason Peters was ejected.

LeSean McCoy would have been excused if he took the final two games off, but the Eagles running back was cleared to play after missing four games with a concussion and during the week he spoke about his desire to get back on the field. McCoy demonstrated his hunger in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. On a day when he didn't have much running room, McCoy rushed for 45 yards on 13 carries and caught nine passes for 77 yards. "It felt good to be out there," McCoy said.

DARREN SPROLES was everything the Eagles hoped he'd be when they picked up the then-30-year-old running back at a garage sale in New Orleans last year for a fifth-round pick. He led the league in punt returns with a 13.0-yard average. He had a career-high six rushing touchdowns and registered the second-highest rushing average of his career (5.8 yards per carry). Went to his very first Pro Bowl. Interestingly, the one thing he didn't really do was have much of an effect on the Eagles' passing game.

JASON PETERS showed up for Eagles training camp with a new body and a renewed determination to prove that, at 33, he still is one of the two or three best left tackles in football. The seven-time Pro Bowler weighs 320 pounds, which is the lightest he's been since making the switch from tight end to offensive tackle in his second NFL season. That's about 25 pounds below what he played at last season. "Three forty-five is what I've always played at," Peters said. "Since my first year starting at offensive line.

AS IT TURNS OUT, it really is about creating a culture; an inclusive culture. Unless it's on his terms, Chip Kelly doesn't seem interested in that. Over the past five months, an astounding amount of energy has been spent trying to disprove the observations of three Eagles who, at the risk of their own ruin, said they believe Chip Kelly has a problem with black men. Predictably, what each of them said was amplified by the sensitive nature of the subject. Predictably, there was a massive rush to disprove it, and thereby make everyone's life less prickly.

NORMALLY, I am a big fan of the show "First Take" on ESPN2. You might wonder how I can watch a show that airs from 10 a.m. to noon, given my work schedule. The answer is that it is replayed late at night, and I often watch it before I go to bed. This past Monday, I was in Los Angeles watching the late-night replay when I heard Stephen A. Smith, whom I know very well and like, go on a rant about Brandon Boykin's statement concerning Eagles coach Chip Kelly. Stephen A. went almost as far as calling Chip a racist before he finally backed down.

Ryan Mathews was still out of breath 10 minutes after practice had ended. Chip Kelly's up-tempo workouts will do that to first-timers, but Mathews' workload may have increased slightly with DeMarco Murray's absence. Murray sat out team drills Sunday because of dehydration, and on Thursday an illness sidelined the Eagles' prized acquisition. Mathews, meanwhile, has plugged along under the radar, and would have dashed into the locker room unnoticed had a reporter not flagged him down.

During an on-field brawl in 2009, a black running back had dropped a white linebacker to the blue turf of Boise State's Albertsons Stadium with a single brutal punch, and one game into his head coaching career at Oregon, Chip Kelly had a crisis to confront. LeGarrette Blount - Oregon's star running back, 6 feet and 235 pounds of coiled muscle - had cracked Boise State's Byron Hout in the jaw, both of them fortunate that Blount had delivered no lasting damage to Hout's face. Kelly initially suspended Blount for the rest of that season, but he soon began to wonder whether the punishment was too severe.

Two years have passed since Chip Kelly made the decision to keep Riley Cooper after a video showed the Eagles receiver shouting a racial slur at a concert, but the incident is still raised whenever the topic of Kelly and race is discussed. It's still a topic two years later, because two former members of the organization - running back LeSean McCoy and coaching assistant Tra Thomas - made references this offseason to race as an issue in the Eagles locker room. Then, cornerback Brandon Boykin, after his trade on Saturday, told Comcast SportsNet reporter Derrick Gunn that Kelly "is uncomfortable around grown men of our culture.

CHIP KELLY does not appear to make DeMarco Murray uncomfortable. "I just do as I'm told," the running back said yesterday when asked why his reps were limited on the first day of training camp. Kelly does not appear to make DeMeco Ryans uncomfortable. "However they use me, it'll work out," the linebacker said yesterday when asked about the potential of losing snaps to new acquisition Kiko Alonso. Kelly does not appear to make Malcolm Jenkins uncomfortable. "At the end of the day, if you don't like your working environment, then you can always quit," the safety said.

BY THE TIME Brandon Boykin starting taking back his inflammatory comments, another hit to Chip Kelly's reputation already had been soundly delivered. Instead of questions about becoming the newest Pittsburgh defensive back, the former Eagles cornerback was peppered yesterday at Steelers training camp with questions about why he had hinted that the Eagles traded him on Saturday because Kelly was "uncomfortable around grown men" of African-American culture. Boykin tried to clarify that he was not calling Kelly racist when he texted Comcast SportNet reporter Derrick Gunn with his comments.

THE OBJECTS of change are largely unblemished or have the best of handlers at their sides. Chip Kelly, the agent of change, seized power in January then gutted a team that, in 2014, won 10 games and finished a whisker behind a wild-card spot; gutted it to the degree that more than 45 percent of the starting lineup will be new this season. That's 10 of the top 22 players. Eight of those 10 players were part of the 10-win playoff team in 2013, Kelly's first season. The number could grow to be higher than 10. Nothing guarantees that extraordinary blockers Riley Cooper and Brent Celek will retain their starting jobs, considering their diminished production levels.
