LeSean McCoy scooted by reporters after his Buffalo Bills lost to the Eagles 23-20 on Sunday. Maybe he had to get ready for his homecoming party.
Even though it was painfully clear all week that McCoy and Eagles head coach Chip Kelly aren’t that fond of each other, the franchise’s all-time rushing leader still has plenty of friends still on the team. Two of them, Jason Peters and Vinny Curry, are even throwing McCoy a homecoming party in Old City on Sunday night:
Edit: Curry claims he isn't actually at the party (journalizin'), and he's live-tweeting a storm out of that WWE PPV:
After a strong start to Sunday's game, McCoy finished with 74 rushing yards and then pulled an Isiah Thomas: As the clock was winding down with the Eagles taking a knee, Shady ran off the field before play had officially ended.
According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, Peters spoke of how close he is to McCoy after the game, even using the words "family first" that you see on the flyer. The most important question will be if any other guys will be allowed at this party.
