UPDATE: Actor Charlie Sheen has pledged $1,000 to the server dissed by LeSean McCoy.

ORIGINAL:

Somebody please tell Philadelphia Eagles player LeSean McCoy that you are supposed to leave a 20 percent tip at a restaurant. Not 20 cents.

On Monday afternoon, McCoy and three guests visited PYT, the popular burger-and-booze spot in Philadelphia. The group racked up a tab of $61.56, and McCoy charged the bill to his Visa card, leaving a 20-cent tip. That is a .32-percent tip.

PYT owner Tommy Up says that it was absolutely the LeSean McCoy who left the 20-cent tip as opposed to just some random LeSean McCoy leaving a 20-cent tip.

But not everyone on PYT’s Facebook page is being exactly sympathetic to the server or the restaurant.

Watching from the sideline, linebacker DeMeco Ryans knew the Eagles had a first down before the ball was even snapped.

Darren Sproles had just picked up 8 yards on a screen, but he was tackled short of the sticks, and the offense faced a 4th-and-1 from the Jacksonville 49. The Eagles were trailing 17-0 in the third quarter.

“Sitting on the sideline, I knew we had ‘em,” Ryans said. “Because as a defense, you’re kind of happy about a third-down stop and you’re not expecting a fourth-down play. Our offense gets on the ball and runs it quickly, catches everybody off-guard.”

Chip Kelly didn’t hesitate. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur told him the Eagles were short, and Kelly made a tempo call – a message that can be communicated with one or two words. The call lets the offensive players know it’s time to bust it back to the line of scrimmage and get the ball snapped. Read more »

LeSean McCoy is well aware of what’s at stake for him personally in 2014.

Starring at a position where players peak early and careers can often be cut short, McCoy he is by all accounts focused on making the most of his sixth NFL season.

“I’m 26, I’m young. There’s gonna be times where players [say], ‘I wish I could have did this better. I wish I could have done this, done that.’ And I don’t want to be one of them guys,” McCoy said Wednesday after practice. “That’s why I’m busting my butt to do all the right things, stay in shape, mentally stay on top of the game and being the best. I think if I do that, I’ll take care of the small things and go out there and just play the game the way it’s supposed to be played and the way I play, I should be fine.” Read more »
