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 has stopped eating Doritos at midnight. That's part of the Eagles running back's emphasis on nutrition, which helped him drop four to seven pounds this offseason in an effort to become even quicker. McCoy led the NFL with 1,607 rushing yards last season, but apparently that was not enough. He wanted to be lighter. McCoy has trimmed down to about 209 pounds. "I felt like last year, even with the year I did have, it was based on guys up front really blocking well and [me]

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 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.

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 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.

Chip Kelly saw LeSean McCoy up close for two years, so he did not need to finish game planning to know what to expect when the Buffalo Bills visit on Sunday. Kelly expects to see a heavy dose of McCoy, the Eagles' all-time leading rusher who Kelly unceremoniously traded to the Bills in March. "I know he's having a good year, but I haven't really broken down film or looked at anything like that," Kelly said. "I know he's the focal point of their offense and we have to do a good job of team tackling against him because, obviously, seeing him in person and knowing him, he's going to make the first guy miss, sometimes the second guy miss.

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.

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.

WITH ALL due respect to Brian Westbrook, Duce Staley and the inimitable Ricky Watters, there never has been a back with the gifts of LeSean McCoy. Indeed, only the romance of the run by the La Salle men's basketball team and the shameless self-promotion of ageless boxer Bernard Hopkins kept McCoy from . . . er . . . running away with the award. Mostly, it's because the balloting ends a month before football season ends. Yes, McCoy has been enabled by flashy new coach Chip Kelly, who finished third in the voting.

(As the Eagles continue their coaching search, the Daily News' Paul Domowitch looks back on the past season and assesses exactly what kind of talent the new coach will potentially have at his disposal. Today, the offense.) Click here to send in your own grades. QUARTERBACK Grade: B Sam Bradford proved he could stay healthy, starting 14 games after missing most of the previous two seasons with ACL tears. It took him a while to gain confidence in his knee, fully master a new offense and get on the same page with his receivers.

DEFENSIVE LINE Grade: C-plus Even though he had to deal with constant double-teams, Fletcher Cox was a disruptive force all season, finishing with a team-high 9 1/2 sacks, 32 hurries and 16 1/2 tackles for losses and receiving an overdue Pro Bowl invitation. With so much attention focused on him, it should've opened up playmaking opportunities for his linemates and linebackers. But nose tackle Bennie Logan, who battled injuries much of the season, wasn't the unstoppable backfield penetrator he was the year before.

Chip Kelly walked off the field in East Rutherford, N.J., after the 2014 season finale aware that the Eagles needed major changes for 2015. He didn't expect that one year later, his exit would be the biggest change of all. The Eagles finish the schedule against the New York Giants for the second consecutive season, but Kelly will not be coaching. Owner Jeffrey Lurie fired Kelly on Tuesday night, culminating a year of upheaval on the field and in the front office. "This has been one of the most disappointing seasons I've ever endured," Lurie said.

Regarding Chip Kelly: Buyer beware. The Tennessee Titans, or any other NFL team considering Kelly as its next head coach, should beware in hiring someone who so often contradicted what others said or his own actions. At the very least, they should be careful in giving him any personnel power. Of all of Kelly's moments of truthiness - for he could have believed every word he said - the one that was most egregious was denying in March that he had anything to do with being given control of Eagles personnel.

Wow, that was fast. That's what we said the first time we saw Chip Kelly's offense play a regular-season game on a Monday night against the Washington Redskins and that's what we were thinking again Tuesday evening when the shocking news broke that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie had shown his head coach the exit before the completion of his third season. Fast out of the gate, fast out the door and fast with just about everything else in between during his brief and fascinating tenure in Philadelphia.

SOMEONE NEEDS to shoulder this blame. Just six wins? Gutted by the Cardinals in prime time at home? It's Bill Davis' fault. DeMarco Murray - he's a stiff. Chip Kelly's an arrogant, power-hungry know-it-all. Now, all of those accusations might be fact. It simply is not realistic to expect significant change. Not two years in a row. For any NFL team teetering at mediocrity or just below, Christmastime is, jarringly, the season of projecting rejection and unemployment.

There is something mysterious about Kiko Alonso. The mystery has nothing to do with how he has played this season. He has not played well. There is no mystery about that. Since making a spectacular end-zone interception against the Atlanta Falcons in the Eagles' first game, he has pretty much been invisible, and not merely because he was inactive for five games. He has not intercepted a pass since Week 1. He has not forced a fumble. He has not recovered a fumble. As a rookie with the Buffalo Bills in 2013, Alonso was a force at middle linebacker.

eTHE NEWS that the Eagles had released DeSean Jackson might not have been on the same level as "Dewey Defeats Truman" or "Surrender is Unconditional," but it was still one of those where-were-you moments. At least, in local circles it was. For example, I was walking down Locust Street. A gentleman whom I did not know, and who did not know me, informed me of it as we passed each other. He was studying his phone with a blank stare and seemed to be in need of someone to hug. Anyway, that's my story.

FOR A VARIETY of reasons, the Cardinals were an interesting test case for this Eagles defense, first and foremost because Arizona is the one nondivision team the Eagles have faced in each of the first three years of the Chip Kelly regime. To the numbers . . . In 2013, they allowed 350 yards in a 24-21 win. Last year, they allowed 400 yards in a 24-20 loss. On Sunday, lest you need a reminder, they allowed 493 yards in a 40-17 loss. You don't need graphing paper to know the line is headed in the wrong direction.

WHAT AN EAGLES season this has been! We started with such high hopes, but, to use a horse racing analogy, they almost fell to their knees coming out of the gate. They somehow recovered to reach the halfway point at 4-4. Then, rather than cruising through the weakest three-game stretch on their schedule - against the subpar Dolphins, Buccaneers and Lions - and emerging at 7-4 and well on their way to a division title, disaster struck thrice and the Eagles' bandwagon emptied faster than Odell Beckham Jr. streaking for a touchdown.
