Eagles head coach Chip Kelly responds to players “Racist” comments

Eagles fans need patience when dealing with Chip Kelly's ultimate plan, or do they?

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly responds to players racist comments

Several players have said that Chip Kelly had some “racist” ways.  First was Tra Thomas who said that there was “a hint of racism” behind some of Kelly’s decisions.  Then LeSean McCoy said that Kelly was getting rid of “all his black players”. 

“That doesn’t hurt me.  I’m not governed by the fear of what other people say.  Events don’t elicit feelings.  I think beliefs elicit feelings,” said Kelly. “I understand what my beliefs are and I know how I am.

“You start chasing perception and you got a long life ahead of you, son.  That’s what it’s all about.  If you’re worried about someone else’s perception of what is going on with you, then…You can control one thing.  You can control yourself.  I know how we run this organization, and it’s not run that way.”

He finished it off by saying talk to the players:

“Talk to the players.  That’s a great question to talk to the players about,” he responded.
