@ anyone that thinks the Eagles didn't use the media for their PR spin campaign. **** was blatant as hell.
Once Adam Schefter got on TV and said they chose to take the hit and release him (rather than a trade) because they didn't feel right shifting his problems on someone else...that confirmed all my suspicions.
Eagles had every right to cut him and that part of it doesn't bother me. I actually DO believe it was mostly due to football and work ethic issues with Chip and I'm not stuck on the whole Cooper thing. But let's be real here...they knew for a while they were moving on without him, knew the decision would be controversial, and felt they had to craft it in a way to not look bad. Not the first time a team chose to operate that way and it won't be the last. I don't respect it though.
