You would think that by now former Eagles running back Shady McCoy would have learned his lesson and developed some thicker skin after the pushback from a host of Eagle players to McCoy’s unfounded accusation that Birds boss Chip Kelly is a racist.
But Bills running back McCoy got a little indignant when asked to expound on his remarks about Kelly, whom he said got rid of “all the good black players.”
Via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, McCoy didn’t do a particularly good job putting the comments to rest, after initially saying: “I have nothing more to say about it. … I’m done talking about it.”
When asked a follow up, which is what happens when you make such an explosive charge, McCoy apparently confronted a reporter, saying: “Did you hear what I said?”
He also mixed in a “Y’all listening to me?” and threatened to end the interview if the questions about Kelly continued.
They did of course, adding: “I never regret nothing I say,” and that he didn’t think he caused a distraction.
“I don’t have to explain myself to nobody,” he said. “I don’t. I said what I said about what I felt at the time and I’m done with that.”
Gosh, someone should probably explain to him that he probably isn’t, especially since the Bills play the Eagles on Dec. 13, and that the Birds will be loaded for bear — not to mention the fans at the Linc.
