Herm Edwards is sick and tired of professional football players putting themselves ahead of their job. One day they’re talking about non-football-related things, the next, they’re talking about other things that are sort of related to football but not literally about how the sport of football works.
On Tuesday, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy decided he’d get out his diamond-encrusted microphone and selfishly answer questions about this Sunday’s game against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. “I’m not talking to Chip,” he said in response to a reporter’s question about whether or not he planned on talking to the man who traded him this offseason. “We got nothing to talk about. He can’t call me. He can’t shake my hand. There’s nothing he can do with me. He can’t say shit to me. It’s as simple as that.”
Ya, we were shocked as you are.
Luckily, Herm Edwards was around to put clinical narcissists like LeSean McCoy in their place — which he seems to think is in a sound-proof room next to a bottle of emotion-suppressing medication. By Edwards’ estimation, candid remarks like Shady’s only serve as a distraction for his teammates. “They put their own egos ahead of the team,” he said about pro football players, generally, after screaming for two minutes on “NFL Live” Wednesday. “Let your play do the talking,” he added, loudly.
Apparently LeSean McCoy heard Herm loud and clear, because we’ve obtained a text conversation between the two, whereby Shady tries to ascertain what he should’ve said to the media instead. It is 100% *real.
