LeSean McCoy Won't Demand Bigger Role In Eagles Offense
Critics of the Philadelphia Eagles cite the pass heavy offensive attack as an issue and believe top running back LeSean McCoy should carry the ball more. But according to Brendan Prunty of the Newark Star-Ledger, McCoy isn't lobbying for more work.
Through three games this season, McCoy has only had 58 rushing attempts, 261 yards and only one rushing touchdown scored. He has caught 11 passes for 42 yards but has not scored in the passing game. Last year, in 15 games, he rushed 273 times for 1,309 yards and scored 17 touchdowns.
“I don’t think that there’s ever a time that I have to go tell them, ‘Give me the ball,’ ” McCoy said. “There’s times where myself and other players feel like we have an advantage because we’re out there and know more (about the game) than (the coaching staff) would, in terms of observing. . . . There’s never a case where I’m telling them, ‘Hey, I want the ball.’ ”
“We’re a top offense in this league,” McCoy said. “I don’t want to say we’re a bad offense. We have all the weapons. All the depth. It’s a matter of going out and doing it.”
