It's Eagles-Bills week, and the big story-line is about a handshake that may or may not happen. Wait, what? No, really.
According to Chip Kelly, he wants to shake LeSean McCoy's hand on Sunday.
"I'd love to shake LeSean's hand," Kelly said on a conference call here this morning. "I tried to call him after. And I talked to his agent after we traded him. I always wanted to talk to LeSean. Again, I have no issues with LeSean at all. He has a great personality, an infectious personality. I have tremendous respect for LeSean."
McCoy, on the other hand (bad pun intended), wants no part of a handshake.
McCoy said he'll talk to players and Lurie, but he won't be shaking hands with Chip. "We don't have that kind of relationship" #Eagles— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) December 9, 2015
Shady says he doesn't want to shake Chip's hand. Says he has nothing against Chip, just doesn't see a reason to shake his hand.— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroCSN) December 9, 2015
LeSean McCoy on Chip: "Why do you want me to shake that guy's hand? ... "What's the big issue?" "I gotta go, man. I'll see y'all Sunday."— Josh Paunil (@JoshPaunil) December 9, 2015
Shady's right. It's not really a big issue whether he shakes Chip's hand or not. But it's weird that McCoy keeps insisting he's gotten over being traded only to have his actions prove differently.
Here are some more highlights from McCoy's conference call:
McCoy: Rex "way different" from Chip. "Rex is more worried about playing football. The way you wear your hat ... that doesn't matter to him"— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) December 9, 2015
LeSean McCoy: "Chip can't say shit to me. There's nothing for us to talk about."— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) December 9, 2015
McCoy: "I don't dislike him. I don't have anything against him. There's nothing for us to talk about. He knows me, knows who I am."— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) December 9, 2015
Why can't Chip shake your hand? McCoy: "Listen man, Chip can't shake shit. At all. Nothing. He knows this. ...I can read between the lines."— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) December 9, 2015
Sure seems like Shady is still salty.
