Philadelphia Eagles Feature Riley Cooper For February — Black History Month –In Their Calendar [PHOTO]

By: Evan Jankens

People make mistakes. I make plenty.

Some mistakes are bigger than others, obviously, and the Philadelphia Eagles have made quite the mistake.

In their 2015 calendar, the Eagles featured one Riley Cooper as their man of the month for February.

February is black history month.

Cooper, if you remember, begged for forgiveness when he was caught on video dropping a racial slur.

According to, the Eagles say it was an honest mistake.

This isn’t the first time there was an error in a calendar. The Detroit Lions printed Titus Young on the cover of their 2013 calendar. And who can forget the Detroit Red Wings and their “Easter Thursday” goof?

Who proofreads these things?
