Stephen A. Smith Floats The Theory That Maybe Chip Kelly Is A Racist

Listen. First Take is a trashy, cynical show that exists so that Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless, two of the widest talking sphincters in sports punditry, can take turns spouting fake and bad shit to the masses. Most of the time, it's so disingenuous that it's depressing, but sometimes, one of these two fellas comes… » 3/09/15 12:45pm 3/09/15 12:45pm

What Is Chip Kelly Doing?

Two months ago, Chip Kelly was given full control over the Eagles' football personnel decisions. Every trade, every signing, every draft pick—that's all Kelly.

Eagles Unsure How Riley Cooper Got Black History Month On Team Calendar…

Riley Cooper, you might remember, did this. It was a whole big thing, and not even that long ago! Whatever company the Eagles contracted to make their official 2015 team calendar either didn't remember, or thought it was more prudent to try to get Cooper's appearance over with in the shortest month. » 2/12/15 3:45pm 2/12/15 3:45pm
