Boykin: Chip ‘Uncomfortable Around Grown Men Of Our Culture.’
Another former Eagles has taken aim at Chip Kelly.
In a text to CSN’s Derrick Gunn, the recently-traded Brandon Boykin said that Kelly is “uncomfortable around grown men of our culture.”
“He can’t relate and that makes him uncomfortable,” Boykin said, via Gunn. “He likes total control of everything, and he don’t like to be uncomfortable. Players excel when you let them naturally be who they are, and in my experience that hasn’t been important to him, but you guys have heard this before me.”
As Boykin referenced, he is not the first player to criticize Kelly on his way out the door. LeSean McCoy said that Kelly was getting rid of “all the good black players” on the team. Earlier in the offseason, Tra Thomas said that there are players who “feel like there is a hint of racism” behind some of Kelly’s decisions.
Cary Williams questioned Kelly’s approach from a conditioning and x’s and o’s perspective, saying that “towards the end of the year, we were exhausted, and we got out-coached the majority of the games.”
Kelly will address the media at 11:20 to kick off training camp.
