Eagles Players Say They Can't Forgive Riley Cooper | Robert Littal Presents BlackSportsOnline

Anonymous Eagles Player Says Andy Reid Would Have Punished Riley Cooper More

I would prefer players to be like LeSean McCoy, if you have something to say, just say it with your chest. But most players are scared of backlash, so here comes the anonymous quotes from Eagles players.

The majority of them African American – that are having a difficult time accepting the wide receiver’s apology for using a racial slur, according to team sources. And there was one prominent Eagle that questioned the punishment – Cooper was fined — handed down by owner Jeffrey Lurie and new coach Chip Kelly. “I’ll tell you one thing, if it was Andy Reid, he would have gotten more than a fine,” the player said on the condition of anonymity.

Another veteran Eagles player said that he could not get past Cooper using the n-word and that he didn’t think he would ever speak to him again. “The coaches are saying we should think team first, but this is just crazy,” the player said. “Was he thinking about the team when he said that?”

Andy Reid probably wouldn’t have done anything differently, simply because the team hands are tied.  Maybe, he would have handle the locker room better than Chip Kelly, but who knows.

The Eagles were already a fragile bunch and this definitely isn’t helping.
