    True, and that certainly includes Eagles fans. I've checked out a number of articles on Cooper, and not a single Eagles fan thinks he is anything other than at best a number four receiver. Even the incredible season by Jordy Nelson -- who only played 60% of Green Bay's offensive snaps and who was seen as no more than a possession receiver before 2011 -- hasn't changed any opinions on Cooper, nor has Eric Decker's numerous big games in '11. American Whites have to be the most stubbornly ignorant self-loathing people that have ever lived when it comes to sports (and politics, religion, etc.).

    Here’s a good read. Not!! According to this “journalistâ€￾ Riley Cooper has performed poorly and Chad Hall is a gimmick.


    Post-Draft Eagles Wide Receiver Breakdown


    by NBC 10 Philadelphia (blog)



    First up is the holdover Riley Cooper. Due to injuries, the Eagles actually gave Cooper a lot of snaps last year, 330 according to Pro Football Focus. Yet 'Sunshine' did little to justify those extra looks. So in the draft this year, Howie Roseman ...

    Wtf is up with calling White receivers sunshine? Falcons fans were calling Kerry Meier sunshine on my video and on articles.

    The stuff about Cooper is laughable. Chad Hall not fast enough? Has the dude even seen Hall run?

    Most of those snaps were at 4th string receiver. Michael Vick and Vince Young are not actually good at going through progressions to make it to the 4th receiver. Its usually 1 or 2 reads and run, or 1 or 2 reads and dump off to safety valve which was LeSean McCoy or Avant. When Cooper was used as the number 1/2 receiver he averaged 80 yards per game. He might have gotten a few snaps at outside receiver in running situations because of his blocking ability, being that Maclin and DeSean Jackson are both under 200 pounds. Which why it doesn't make sense for Cooper not to be starting. Maclin has been good but still hasn't been consistent, the same with Jackson, he is a good deep threat but thats it. They need a big physical presence on the outside, and they have one that is fast too.

    wow, this whole having to use facebook to post on things is starting to censor more things on the internet. I had a ton of more points posted under my facebook account for that article and they deleted it. I tried posting it 3 more times and it was deleted and now I am unable to post on there. So I got this guy I knew to post a watered down version of what I said from his account and it is still up. I can't figure out why his is not deleted yet, I know I criticized McNutt by saying if they thought Cooper had some drops that they would be dissapointed with McNutt, who dropped some of the easiest passes, most of Cooper's drops were tough catches and also talked more about Chad Hall's speed and talent.

    I've noticed more websites requiring facebook to post. It takes away the anyonymous aspect so they can track everything you say but apparently now they can delete it and then ban you from speaking your opinion. At least they allowed my friend's post to stay....for now. I guess you could always make a fake facebook account but I wonder if they will go as far as making you stay with one account and track your ip or something, maybe I am just paranoid.

    Cooper may make the Eagles roster -- as a WSTD. The article mentions his "limited production" -- 16 catches for 315 yards. That's almost 20 yards a catch. He's produced when he's been allowed to play. If he was black with the size/speed combo he has, the media and fans would be cooing about his "limitless upside" and demanding that he play more. But in Cooper's case he's already been written off.


    WR Riley Cooper Still Likely to Make Eagles’ Roster

    May 29th, 2012 at 6:53 pm by Bob Wankel

    Riley Cooper hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire since the Eagles selected him in the fifth-round of the 2010 draft.

    The former Florida standout has had limited production in two seasons in Philadelphia. He posted 16 receptions for 315 yards and a touchdown a year ago with his best game coming in a 17-10 Week 11 win over the New York Giants when he posted five catches for 75 yards and his lone score of the season.

    For whatever reason, former Eagles’ quarterback Vince Young (feels good to write) seemed to develop a certain level of comfort with Cooper, but the same hasn’t existed between the third-year receiver and Michael Vick.

    As such, many figure that Cooper’s future with the Eagles is murky at best after the team drafted Marvin McNutt out of Iowa in the sixth-round of April’s draft. But contrary to popular belief, there may be room for both Cooper and McNutt on this team because of Cooper’s exceptional special teams play.

    From Philly.com’s Sheil Kapadia:

    7 – The number of times Riley Cooper was the first man downfield on the Eagles’ coverage teams, as tracked by the coaching staff. That was third on the team, behind only special-teams ace Colt Anderson (18) and linebacker Akeem Jordan (9). Cooper also was a blocker on return teams.

    You’ll probably hear a lot of talk this summer about how Cooper and rookie Marvin McNutt are competing for a roster spot, but the only way that happens is if one (or two?) of the team’s lesser-known free agent receivers has a great training camp. In reality, the Eagles are in position to keep Cooper and McNutt, to go along with DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant.

    The Eagles would like Cooper, who is listed at 6-3, 222-pounds to better use his large frame in the redzone, but it appears he’ll get at least one more season to prove his worth.

    eagles WR coach praises Cooper

    Riley Cooper, Marvin McNutt working to move up Eagles receiver depth chart.



    The top of the Eagles' wide receiver lineup is set and on solid footing after a summer of turmoil a year ago.

    DeSean Jackson is signed, participating in early practices, and seems more at ease than he has been in some time, particularly after a training camp holdout last year. Jeremy Maclin, after battling a mysterious illness in 2011, losing weight, and missing most of the offseason preparation, is healthy, has added seven pounds of muscle and bulked up to 205, and says he has not lost any speed or quickness.
    Story continues below.

    "So much more ready," than last season, Maclin said Thursday. "I wish the season started tomorrow, that's how ready I am."

    Quarterback Michael Vick, saying Maclin reminds him of former Cowboy Michael Irvin in size and route running, believes the receiver is poised for his best season yet.

    Jason Avant still has the slot-receiver role. But after the top three, there is a deep competition under way among recent draft picks and young free agents.

    Riley Cooper and Marvin McNutt each have the kind of height, at 6-foot-3, and big frames that the Eagles' top three receivers lack. Undrafted speedster Damaris Johnson has opened eyes early in offseason practices as Ron Johnson and Chad Hall also scrap for catches and a chance to make the roster.

    "Our wideout group has probably the best depth in the league," Cooper said. "We've got nine, 10 guys that are awesome."

    Added Maclin, "If you're afraid of competition, get out of the game. That's how you've got to look at it."

    Cooper, a fifth-round pick in 2010, begins the offseason as the fourth receiver, but stuck behind the top trio, he hasn't had many opportunities in his first two years with the Eagles.

    "I'm the fourth guy. I accept that. I've just got to go out every day and try to get better, same as everybody else," Cooper said.

    Wide receivers coach David Culley noted that Cooper is getting his first full NFL offseason.

    "I expect him to really make a jump and be the kind of player he's capable of being," Culley said.


    Last year, Cooper had just 16 receptions. He wasn't even targeted until the Eagles' eighth game. Seen as a potentially big, end-zone receiver, Cooper was targed just four times inside opponents' 20-yard-line, resulting in one completion, a touchdown. All four tries were in the Eagles' win over the New York Giants.

    Riley Cooper - WR - Eagles

    Riley Cooper appears locked in as the Eagles' No. 4 wideout.

    Sixth-round rookie Marvin McNutt may push Cooper in training camp, but the veteran has the edge in special teams and blocking. Per the team's website, Cooper "looked faster and more fluid -- by far -- than in any of his previous seasons." He had just 16 catches for 315 yards as the No. 4 receiver last year.

    It may be good news in the long run if Cooper gets cut as the result of the injury as he was drafted by the wrong team. He may never get a legitimate shot in the NFL, but Fat Bastard was never going to give him one and the media and DWFs in Philly never liked him.

    I hope Cooper has a fast recovery. The season is still 5/6 weeks away so maybe he will be ready in time.

    Cooper still being screwed by the Eagles. Even with DeSean Jackson out for the season, it looks like Riley will still be a backup.

    Damaris Johnson played 40-of-50 snaps (80 percent) in Week 12 versus the Panthers. Johnson has practiced at flanker behind DeSean Jackson while Riley Cooper has been the backup split end behind Jeremy Maclin. Expect Johnson to be given the first shot to replace Jackson (broken ribs) in the starting lineup. As much as the Eagles have struggled to move the ball through the air, Johnson is purely a deep-league option.

    Fat Bastard has apparently had a rare attack of common sense and now says Cooper will start for DeSean Jackson. Hopefully Nick Foles can establish a connection with Riley as it will help both their careers considerably. Foles is already being written off by the usual suspects after just two starts so he needs to make a positive impression quickly.

    Cooper Adds Dimension To WR Corps

    by PhiladelphiaEagles.com

    With DeSean Jackson sidelined for the rest of the season as he heals from fractured ribs, Riley Cooper has an extended opportunity to showcase what he can do to help the offense. From a size standpoint, Cooper brings a different element as he is the ...

    Now that the Eagles have obtained the legendary Arrelious Benn -- all of 59 career receptions in 3 NFL seasons but of course blessed with limitless "upside" -- this writer predicts that Riley Cooper has a good chance of being cut before the regular season. I hope so, Cooper's only chance of becoming the star he has the talent to be will be with another team. However it wouldn't be shocking if he's never "allowed" to start. Heading into his fourth season, either his racial apprenticeship ends soon or it never will.

    Yea that is a joke Don. Maybe Cooper will end up with Fat Bastard in Kansas City. It's a shame he has never been given a fair chance. The funny thing is Benn was given more than a fair chance in Tampa as a primary WR and his production is not that much better than Cooper's who has been a 4th/5th wide receiver option during his career.

    Ridiculous, this guy averaged 70 yards receiving per start when forced into it. That would be well over 1k for the season, and he would probably get better as the games went on.

    Developing story: Most articles I've seen once again have the very talented Riley Cooper on the "roster bubble," as happens seemingly every season. But there may be a "Cooper Curse" to go along with the "Hillis Curse."

    From Weenieworld: NJ.com's Jordan Raanan reports Jeremy Maclin fears he tore his right ACL during Saturday's training camp practice. Maclin knows the feeling of an ACL tear because he suffered one during his college career. He'll have an MRI shortly. The injury happened at Saturday's camp practice, and Maclin immediately fell to the ground "writhing in pain." Riley Cooper is Maclin's direct backup at X receiver, although we wouldn't expect much fantasy production from the No. 2 wideout in Chip Kelly's run-heavy scheme.

    In a case like this where such an obviously talented player is getting screwed, I don't mind hoping that it is an ACL tear. I think the existence of the anti-white caste system justifies an ordinarily offensive outlook like that. :icon_lol:

    Maclin was a quality NFL starter and doesn’t seem like a “thugâ€￾ type of NFL Negro…but I immediately thought of criminally-underutilized Cooper when I read of his ACL tear. Since Jason Avant works exclusively in the slot, Riley will be primarily competing for time against the injury-prone, former 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] round Tampa Bay bust, Arrelious Benn.

    With H-Back James Casey, TE Brent Celek, rookie TE Zach Ertz, WR Riley Cooper, their 4/5 white starting OL (Evan Mathis, Jason Kelce, Todd Herremans, and Lane Johnson), and Connor Barwin starting on defense, the Eagles should be a heavy “Caste Football Favoriteâ€￾ in 2013.

    Now if only Mike Vick suffers his annual broken ribs, we could have an official favorite for the NFC!

    That will take some getting used to. In fact, it will seem very unnatural. Just reading the words is weird.

    Maclin's an ok receiver but definitely over-rated. A first round draft pick, his best yearly receiving yardage is 964, back in 2010. If Cooper is "allowed" to start, I'll be very surprised if he doesn't exceed 1,000 yards in 2013.

    Maclin's career yards per catch average is 13.4; Cooper's is 17.0. But still nothing is expected out of Cooper except good blocking, as illustrated by this inanely typical Weenieworld blurb: Eagles GM Howie Roseman says he's focusing on "internal options" to replace Jeremy Maclin (torn ACL). Translation, Riley Cooper is getting a ninth life. "(Cooper is) big, he's strong, he can go up and get the football," Roseman said. "He can block. And for a big guy, he can drop his weight, he can run routes." We wouldn't be surprised if Cooper was primarily called on to block in coach Chip Kelly's run-heavy offense. Although it's unclear what form Kelly's offense will take, Cooper should be no better than a low-ceiling WR4/5 if he indeed wins Maclin's job.

    The DWFs should see Cooper and think Jordy Nelson and Eric Decker. Instead they see him as a typical White overachiever, a borderline, practice squad/special teams type of player. Hopefully Riley will stay healthy and kick some major ass this season, the way Brian Hartline came through last year when there was an incessant media and DWF uproar about him being the Dolphins' number one receiver.

    Not too thrilled with Riley's Negro-like use of the third person here, but he does exude confidence, which is half the battle when you are an oppressed minority with precious little media support in the NFL. Cooper should be an established star by now, but this is his best and last opportunity and he has to take advantage of it.

    Riley Cooper to fill void left by Jeremy Maclin on Eagles

    by Gregg Rosenthal :kev:

    The Philadelphia Eagles are more equipped than most teams to handle a loss to a starting wide receiver. With Jeremy Maclin out for the season, the team's skill-position depth should shine through.

    First up with a chance to take Maclin's starting job? Fourth-year pro Riley Cooper. He knows it.

    "I've got to step up, and I've got to fulfill that role," Cooper told NFL.com's Jeff Darlington on Sunday.

    Darlington indicated Monday on NFL Network's "NFL AM" that Eagles brass made it clear Cooper is first in line to take Maclin's job. Cooper said he is very close to Maclin and almost cried when he saw Maclin tear his ACL in Saturday's practice. But Maclin knows it's an "opportunity" to star like he's never had before.

    "I've got to play Riley Cooper's game," Cooper said, via CSNPhilly.com, showing a starter-worthy use of the third person. "I'm not Jeremy Maclin by any means. We have different styles of play. Am I confident in my game? Absolutely."

    Cooper was effective as a starter for three games in 2011, but he was quiet last season in a reserve role after missing time with a broken collarbone. Cooper, like Maclin, is entering a contract year.

    Damaris Johnson, Arrelious Benn and Jason Avant also might get more snaps, but this is Cooper's job to lose. Fantasy owners, take note.

    I don't care if Riley refers to himself as the "Grand Poobah" as long as he's confident enough to take this job and run with it. Make the Jew sports writers, nerd jock-sniffers and DWFs eat their words!

    Hopefully Foles or even Barkley win the starting job in Philly and Vick is cut. I am sure Foles and Cooper have a strong rapport from running with the 2nd team together last year.

    Will this be the end of Cooper's NFL career? Once again, White public figures have to realize that every private conversation is public in a Cultural Communist system.

    Eagles WR Riley Cooper At Concert: "I Will Fight Every ****** Here"

    Here's Riley Cooper, the guy who is supposed to replace the injured Jeremy Maclin as the Eagles' No. 2 wide receiver, being a racist hillbilly at a Kenny Chesney concert.

    Update: Cooper apologizes on Twitter.
