LeSean McCoy Plays The Politician On Starting QBBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Running Backs Friday, June 14th, 2013
Eagles running back LeSean McCoy gave the politically correct answer when appearing on 94WIP earlier this week. He was asked if he agreed with Michael Vick’s plea for Eagles head coach Chip Kelly to name the starting quarterback ASAP.
“I mean they’re grown men. I think anybody wants to know if they’re starter or not, so I don’t fault Mike (Vick) for that,” McCoy said. “Same with myself, so I would want to know, ‘Hey am I starting or not?’ But then again, you got to look at the head coach. He makes the final decisions on what goes on.”
That’s a great political answer from McCoy who should be headed to a big year because of Kelly’s love of the running game. He seemed to favor Vick in his comments.
“I look at Mike Vick as one of the better players in this league, a guy that’s been established. Then I look at Nick Foles, a guy that has great potential to be a great quarterback and he’s doing great so far,” McCoy stated. “It’s hard to tell the head coach what he should do and what he shouldn’t do, because he’s the head coach. That’s why they pay him the money, that’s why they went to Oregon to get him.”
