LeSean McCoy Wants Offense On His Back Over Final Two Games

Dec 19, 2013 10:55 AM

LeSean McCoy wants to carry the Philadelphia Eagles' offense over the final two games of the season.

The Eagles are vying for the NFC East with games against the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys.

“This is a big game for us, very big,” McCoy said, via the Philadelphia Daily News. “The Cowboys, they’ll do what they gotta do, but for us, Philadelphia, we’ve got to win this game … I feel like this game, I want to put the offense on my back. I want to roll. I want to get goin’. I think me and the guys up front, we’ve got to set the tone. Once we do that, we can worry about the other teams. Right now, the big guys up front and myself, we need to put this game on our back, and take care of business.”

Chip Kelly Looking At Elements Statistics Don't Show

Dec 2, 2013 1:20 PM

Chip Kelly delivered interesting remarks about his perspective on statistics in relation to hiring Bill Davis as defensive coordinator.

“I think people get so caught up in statistics that sometimes it’s baffling to me. You may look at a guy and say, ‘Well, they were in the bottom of the league defensively.’ Well, they had 13 starters out. They should be at the bottom of the league defensively. Is that Billy’s fault? I don’t know what it was, but I don’t look at it that way. I hired [former Oregon offensive coordinator and current Oregon head coach] Mark Helfrich as our offensive coordinator when I was at the University of Oregon. Their numbers were not great at Colorado. But you sit down and talk football with Helf for about 10 minutes. He’s a pretty sharp guy and really brought a lot to the table, and he’s done an outstanding job. He’s now the head coach at Oregon. Whoever coached Adrian Peterson, is that the best running back coach in the country? I don’t know. I’ve got to meet him. He could actually be. But let’s find out what he teaches. Some of it, you’re teaching to what you have available to you and sometimes that’s something that I consider. So I don’t look at the statistics part of it and say, ‘Hey, we need to get that coach.’ Sometimes, honestly, if you look at statistics, you need to get that player.”
