    Former Eagles CB Brandon Boykin suggests Chip Kelly is ‘uncomfortable’ around black men

    Chip Kelly continues to hear accusations of racism for some of his personnel decisions.
    Another former Eagle is accusing head coach Chip Kelly of racism.

    Cornerback Brandon Boykin, who was traded from the Eagles to the Steelers on Saturday for a draft pick, told Comcast SportsNet Philly that Kelly is “uncomfortable around grown men of our culture.”

    “He can’t relate and that makes him uncomfortable,” Boykin told CSN Philly via text message. “He likes to be in total control of everything.

    “Players can excel when you naturally let them be who they are and in my experience that hasn’t been important to him, but you guys have heard this before me.”

    Kelly, who became the Eagles head coach in 2013, has made headlines for getting rid of key players who happen to be black, most notably DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy.

    McCoy dropped the possibility that race was a factor in personnel decisions after he was traded for Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso in the offseason.

    “You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players,” McCoy told ESPN in May. “ He got rid of them the fastest.”

    The trade also prompted ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith to raise the same question.

    “Chip Kelly makes decisions over the last couple of years that, dare I say, leave a few brothers feeling uncomfortable,” Smith said.

    Except that most of the players on the team are black, some of the players replacing the player who were let go are black, some of the players drafted are black. But I guess the race card can be played anywhere at any time these days.

    Seems very odd that you would chose coaching pro football as a profession if you didn't want to be around black men.

    I think if I read between the lines, when he says culture, he's talking about "being black" in the context of walking around with a chip on your shoulder and acting like you can do whatever the hell you want.

    He's pretty good. Was one of the top college guys and is already making a big difference in the NFL.

    so whatever he is doing with his players is strategic and is working. that's probably the best argument against the guy's charges.

    That kind of thinking is behind the Raiders missing the post season for more than a decade.

    Chip Kelly would use Al Sharpton at QB if he thought it would get him an NFL Championship.

    Nope, Chip Kelly just doesn't like short cornerbacks. The Eagles had a dreadful secondary last season and Boykin still couldn't earn a starting job.

    Okay let's knock away the buffers here, as a recovering ex-liberal, I do believe that the coach is uncomfortable around A group of lovely people. Most people are, A group of lovely people transcend race, it's original definition meant ignorant low class individual and I think that definition still applies.Makes you wonder why some folk are so quick to claim it as a badge of honor
