LeSean McCoy stands by Chip Kelly comments


Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy stands by his comments made on Chip Kelly when he was traded in the summer.

The situation is rarely murkier than the comments LeSean McCoy made about his former head coach, Chip Kelly. Playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, McCoy was traded in the off-season to the Buffalo Bills for promising inside linebacker Kiko Alonso. After the move, McCoy lashed out at Kelly, stating that he was getting rid of “all the good black players”.

With LeSean McCoy set to face his old club, McCoy was asked to address his comments during an an appearance on 94WIP. The Bills running back was asked to clarify what he meant by his attack on his old head coach. McCoy did not regret his remarks, stating in the interview:

"“Some things you may say from anger, and I was definitely angry, but I’m not going to change anything I say. I stand by everything I said before. I don’t have no problems with Chip or nothing like that. No hatred. But I stand by it. I don’t take it back. I’m not going to make it a racist thing, a black or white thing. I’m not going to get into that topic. It’s old. It is what it is,"

The comments are slightly odd from McCoy, as his remarks on Kelly clearly seem to incite some form of racist aspect. However, he rejects such a notion in the above comments and states that he now has no issue with Kelly. What cannot be doubted is the quality of the now Bills running back, who has out-rushed DeMarco Murray and Ryan Matthews so far this season. Combined.
