Eagles WR Riley Cooper has not had the best of seasons. That's one way of putting it.
CSNPhilly.com columnist Reuben Frank has put it another way -- with numbers. Let's check some of the stats:
Fewest catches among WRs with 5 starts: R. Woods (16), R. Streater (16), C. Givens (15), R. White (14), D. Heyward-Bey (13), R. Cooper (8).

And another from Eagles beat writer for the Inqy Jeff McLane.
Riley Cooper is the most unproductive NFL WR in terms of catches (8) and yards (93) among those that have played more than 60% of snaps.

Jeff Maehl has been stealing time from Cooper for Pete's sake.
So it was kind of fun to see Dave Spadaro -- he of PhiladelphiaEagles.com employment -- attempt to defend Cooper when Reuben started to lay into him on Philly Sports Talk Live this evening.
Michael Barkann's reaction is pretty good.
