LeSean McCoy sat down Friday night and discussed his thoughts on the Philadelphia Eagles start to the season.
“Shady” told NFL.com that he believed that the Eagles offense can go even faster if they work on the little things. For all you fantasy owners of McCoy, don’t expect for him to be getting 31 carriers every game this season going forward. He shared that he thinks they will divide the carriers a little more equally in upcoming weeks just to make sure that he stays fresh the whole season.
When asked about the possibility of McCoy earning the rushing title this year, Shady didn’t seem that interested. Eagles fans will be happy to note that he is way more interested in team goals then personal ones, and he has playoff aspirations to boot.
I anticipate that it will take to long for defensive coordinators to adjust to this system. One of the knocks on Michael Vick has been his tendency to make mistakes. The benefit of this offense is that they run so many plays, it is ok if he makes some mistakes, they will still score plenty of points.
Defensive coordinators who have one week to prepare for this offense will find it almost impossible to stop. There is not enough time during the week to adequately train your defense to change the way they approach the game and to ready themselves for the speed.
