07:17 AM ET 11.04 | Nick Foles had himself a pretty good Sunday, but so did Riley Cooper -- and he seemed to know it. [Cooper] does smug very well. And yesterday, as he headed for the locker-room door after his five-catch, 139-yard, three-touchdown performance in the Eagles' 49-20 win over the Raiders, smug was radiating from every pore of the wide receiver's 6-3, 225-pound body. "Y'all want to talk to me?" he said in mock surprise as a few reporters stopped him. "For what?" Cooper will tell you he doesn't read the papers or listen to the radio talk shows or pay much attention to the negative comments about him on social media. But that's bull. He knows what people have been saying and writing and tweeting about him this season. ... [On Sunday], he got another opportunity to tell his critics to take their opinions and shove them. "That's the 'Coop' I know," Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

"That's the 'Coop' I know, not the one who dropped the N-bomb at that hick concert. But, if he plays like that again, he can challenge all security guards regardless of race," said the sawed off head coach.

He doesn't deserve to be smug!

Doesn't matter what people think of the Coop, matters what his teammates think.

Damn... Raiders gave up 10 touchdowns in their first 7 games. Then THAT!

I wonder what happened to our Cooper?

He obviously hasn't learned a damn thing.

I think he sailed off Mangler.... I think he sailed off.

Before the end of the season, somebody is going to lay this guy out, smirk about the flag and the 15 yards, and say "It was worth it" about the fine.

My Pats had to put a lickin' on somebody. Sorry, your guys were in the stadium that day.

A far tougher question to answer as opposed to "what happened to the Steelers defense"...

T'is better to give than receive? Not good for Tomlin. Big changes coming in a number of cities.

Maybe Ben was not that far off a month ago when he said they were the worst team in the NFL. They are not, but they are in the group discussion. As is my sad Heroes from days gone by.

Indeed. On the offense and defensive side of the ball in Pitt. Time has just passed some coaches by...(Dallas) as well.

Brady, Ridley, Blount, Amendola, Edelman, Gronk, Dobson...

And the offensive line that made it work.

The team understands that they've had some significant injuries, particularly on defense, and they're not going to hold anyone to single-digit scores. So, the defense is doing what it can, and the offense has stepped up big-time.

That was more like what we're accustomed to seeing from TB.

Good question, can't blame all of that debacle on injuries, next guy has to step up, them quitting on plays in the fourth quarter was pitiful.....
