McCoy Prefers Running With Foles Under Center

LeSean McCoy prefers running the ball with Nick Foles under center instead of in the shotgun.

McCoy had 149 yards in their most recent game with Foles heavily under center.

“It really helps out,” McCoy said Wednesday. “You can see it better. You can see the lanes better. If there is some pressure, you can adjust to it. In the [shotgun], you’re kind of going sideways and if there is pressure, it kind of knocks you back. I like under center more. 

“What makes me a good back is just vision. I think being under center, about 7 1/2 yards deep, I can see everything happen. I’m the farthest guy from the game. I’m all the way in the back. If a guy has leverage on a block, or a guy gets beat, I can see it. I can adjust to it. That’s why I like it better.”

Marshall: Cutler And I Are Like Brothers

Brandon Marshall stood by his expression of emotion following the Chicago Bears' 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

On Showtime’s “Inside the NFL”, Marshall reinforced his frustration at the Bears' 3-4 record.

“The only thing I regret is that the door wasn’t closed,” Marshall said on the program, according to a network press release. "I wouldn’t change any of my reactions because they came from my heart, and that’s how I felt, and that’s how I still feel. I think we have all the coaches we need. I think we have all the players that we need to get the job done. And 3-4 is unacceptable, but we have everything that we need to turn this ship right now."

Marshall also dismissed the notion that there is a rift between Jay Cutler and him.

“I have a really nice condo. And guess what? Jay Cutler built that condo,” Marshall said. “We’re great. We’re great. You know, we’re like brothers. I think coach (Marc) Trestman said it the best. But if I have a problem with Jay Cutler I’m going to go to Jay Cutler. If Jay Cutler has a problem with me, he’s going to come to me. We have that type of relationship.”
