Eagles Wake-Up Call: Williams Trying To Change the Conversation

0V3J8877Cary Williams hasn’t exactly blended in since arriving in Philadelphia via free agency back in March.

He has mixed it up with both the opposition and his own teammates. Has been outspoken on a number of issues from race relations to defensive toughness. And of course he made the most un-Philadelphian word ever — sconces — a part of our city’s lexicon.

“I think it’s been more than a rocky start,” said Williams following Monday’s win over Washington. “But at the end of the day I just want to play football. Every time I am on the field I want to put my best foot forward. I want my teammates to understand that they can have confidence in me, that I go out there and I prepare and I play my tail off each and every play.”

The 28-year-old admits that his experience has been a little different so far, but says he wouldn’t trade it in. And he recognizes that city and player are still trying to figure one another out.

Vick: Williams Knows He Has To Control Himself

Michael VickMichael Vick seemed to be choosing his words carefully.

His overall message was clear: The players have put the Riley CooperCary Williams scuffle behind them, and the team is focused on Washington.

“Yesterday, what happened in that 10 minutes didn’t affect us for the rest of the practice,” Vick said. “We all know one another. We’ve got a brotherhood in there, so it extends far beyond football. It’s just something that happened and we cleared it up. We didn’t even think nothing about it.”

Kelly (Predictably) Downplays Williams-Cooper Scuffle

Chip Kelly fielded questions today about the Cary WilliamsRiley Cooper scuffle and predictably downplayed it as no big deal.

Asked if there was any fallout from the incident, Kelly said: “No, we went right back to team period after that, and both those guys were lined up and played. As a matter of fact, Mike [Vick] threw the ball deep to Riley on the first play of team period and Cary was covering him, so I don’t see any fallout.”

McCoy: Opponents Will ‘Try And Do Dirty Things’ To Cooper

LeSean McCoyLeSean McCoy has been as candid as anyone when it comes to  Riley Cooper. Where several of his teammates rallied around the receiver publicly after his racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert went viral, McCoy allowed his raw emotions to show and admitted that he had lost some respect for his one-time friend.

According to several Eagles players, including Cooper himself, the scuffle between Cary Williams and Cooper was unrelated to anything that went down this summer, and was more about two competitors getting after it. However, according to a report from Jeff McLane, Williams said to Cooper more than once, “I’m not a n- you [mess] with” during the spat.

Either way, the conversation has bubbled back up to the surface. And once again, McCoy took it head on.

Chip Dismisses Time Of Possession Stat

Chip KellyIn Chip Kelly‘s world, time of possession is a bogus stat. He paid it no mind in college, and doesn’t intend on making it a focus now that he’s in the NFL.

“It’s about plays run. I have heard the question about time of possession…Time of possession is how much time can the other team waste,” said Kelly. “Most games we lose the time of possession, but it’s how many snaps do you face?”
