LeSean McCoy on Eagles: “I think we can run the table”

Arizona Cardinals v Philadelphia Eagles Getty Images

The Eagles have won three out of nine games.  To make the playoffs, they arguably need to win seven of the next seven, and get a little help.

Running back LeSean McCoy believes they can handle their part of the bargain.

“I think so,” McCoy tells NBC’s Bob Costas in an interview to aired tonight on Football Night in America.  “Not only me, but everyone in that locker room thinks the Eagles can win out.  The talent is there.  You ask defenses that we play; when they turn the tape on they don’t see a 3-6 team.  I think if we just take care of the small things we are in good shape.  I think we can run the table.”

Plenty of players think their teams can run the table, but such statements usually are the result of the intoxication/temporary insanity resulting from a victory or two in a row.  The Eagles have dropped a pair since blowing out the Cowboys, and they looked lethargic against the Cardinals last weekend.

McCoy’s theory will be put to the test starting at 8:20 p.m. ET, when the Eagles invade New York (Jersey) for a primetime encounter with the Giants.

    Does he think they can shut up?

  4. bigshirk says: Nov 20, 2011 3:06 PM

    Phahahaha

  5. baldingerspinky says: Nov 20, 2011 3:09 PM

    No you can’t. I love my birds but as soon as you guys speak it makes me cringe. Shut it and play football better than you have all season.

  6. cletusvandam says: Nov 20, 2011 3:09 PM

    McCoy also thinks it’s okay to take money for autograph signing appearances then not showing up, so yeah…

  7. checkforecheck says: Nov 20, 2011 3:09 PM

    Gasp! A team or player wanting to win! Let’s all chastise them like Miami! Can we fit another dream team comment in here before 8:20?

  8. addictedtojane says: Nov 20, 2011 3:10 PM

    For anyone that has a problem about players thinking they can win, that’s what they’re paid to do. It may seem improbable, but they’re supposed to win and I have no problem with any player thinking their team is going to win all their games.

  9. captainwisdom8888 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:11 PM

    With Vince young under center tonight there will be no winning out. Been sticking by what I said a month ago. We have weapons on O to score thirty a game BUT if we cant hold our opponents under thirty we have zero chance

  10. Maximus Decimus Meridius says: Nov 20, 2011 3:12 PM

    ……and then he woke up

  11. Andre's Johnson says: Nov 20, 2011 3:13 PM

    Does McCoy know what “run the table” means?

  12. derekjetersmansion says: Nov 20, 2011 3:13 PM

    They can, but they won’t.

  13. tigeralum2010 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:13 PM

    And I think LeSean’s been drinking

  14. bullcharger says: Nov 20, 2011 3:15 PM

    Everybody else knows you can’t run the table.

  15. razwan65 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:15 PM

    I’m an Eagles fan…..I think that’s crazy talk

  16. jdandcoke says: Nov 20, 2011 3:17 PM

    the giants, pats, jets, a resurgent dolphins, at seattle and at the boys. no lesean, you arent running any table. at least one loss there, probably at least two.

  17. tjacks7 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:17 PM

    I think you better hope you don’t have a drug test coming up anytime soon, LeSean.

  18. Awol.West says: Nov 20, 2011 3:18 PM

    This is what Green Bay did last season, winning 6 in a row with less talent because they had 15 guys on IR. So yes, it’s very possible but to rip off 7 victories in a row in hopes for a playoff spot (wildcard or division). Especially when you have so much film and that bad taste in your mouth, how can’t you figure it at this point. Turnovers and reluctance to use McCoy for whatever the reason is.

    Regardless, it starts with one and no one should be asking if they’re back or not. They can win 4 straight and the talk shouldn’t rise because they keep reverting back to losing. When they get to 6 and the playoff picture has more clarity, then perhaps we have a situation but there’s a ways to go still. The odds are similar to green bay’s odds at going undefeated, they both need 7!!!

  19. Chairman Al says: Nov 20, 2011 3:19 PM

    Yeah I get that it’s the right attitude to have…still doesn’t make it correct.

  20. oggreengold says: Nov 20, 2011 3:20 PM

    since when did rex ryan join the eagles?

  21. tjp2033 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:23 PM

    Really Shady? Run the table? You couldn’t even beat the Cardinals with a crappy backup in. Now you think you can win 7 in a row with the likes of the Giants and Patriots still on the schedule?

    I am an Eagles fan and I know you are delusional.

  22. tubaplayingprof says: Nov 20, 2011 3:23 PM

    His coach doesn’t know how to run the ball, soooooo…..

  23. TIM says: Nov 20, 2011 3:23 PM

    Maybe LeSean can run the table,but that is pool, but his team stinks at football ?

  24. mspenn1013 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:25 PM

    Shady with the crazy talk. As an Eagles fan, I’d love to see it but never gonna happen.

  25. trbowman says: Nov 20, 2011 3:26 PM

    Delusion still alive and well IN Philadelphia

  26. amurrcazteam says: Nov 20, 2011 3:26 PM

    talk talk talk talk talk..,., havent they been saying this the past few weeks now after each loss???? shut up already.

  27. hegotrope says: Nov 20, 2011 3:28 PM

    NFL should have McCoy piss in a cup for that comment.

  28. khmer379 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:30 PM

    Time to layoff the crackpipe #Delusional

  29. pbolyard says: Nov 20, 2011 3:32 PM

    He must of been drunk while making this statement.

    Can we fit another dream team comment in here before 8:20?

    Dream Team

  31. jdandcoke says: Nov 20, 2011 3:34 PM

    awol

    the packers had a great qb, and yes, he was already showing greatness last year….the eagles have nothing even close to a great qb.

  32. nfloracle says: Nov 20, 2011 3:36 PM

    Run the table? They can’t even run a counter right 75% of the time.

  33. cmb79 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:45 PM

    Same guy that said the Giants didn’t win 29-16, by the way. I’m pretty sure he lives in some alternate reality.

  34. east96st says: Nov 20, 2011 3:45 PM

    I don’t blame the guy for saying it. He’s the only guy on the team that is having a REAL Pro Bowl season. I’m sure Vick will get in from ballot stuffing and Jackson will get in based on last year, but McCoy is the one who really deserves it. I’m a Giants fan and I’m willing to say it’s a disgrace if he’s not the starting NFC RB in the Pro Bowl. Monster season and, more often than not, he’s doing it all by himself.

  35. goldrush36 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:47 PM

    He really should just focus on winning tonight before running the table

  36. richm2256 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:52 PM

    Sure …… why not.

    Just because they’re 3-6 and stink like yesterday’s liverwurst, why should that matter, right?

    With Vick, without Vick, what difference does it make.

    They’re screwed.

  37. hookem6903 says: Nov 20, 2011 3:53 PM

    They asked him a question, wtf is he supposed to say? “Oh, no, I don’t think we’re good enough”? Come on, this is silly.

    ———————————————————

    Answering a question with confidence, and answering it being totally ridiculous are two different things.

    Dude could have said “Can we win the next seven games? Well, we’ll do our best”

    No, he had to plunge in full-tilt, despite the obvious ludicricy of the statement.

  39. peopletrains says: Nov 20, 2011 4:32 PM

    I think I can eat a table.

  40. cleverbob says: Nov 20, 2011 4:38 PM

    Imagine the uproar if he said “Our season is over” instead.

    As I wrote in a previous post, winning 7 straight is not good enough when you’re “all in”. Andy Reid should be fired if they don’t win 10 straight.

  41. kevpft says: Nov 20, 2011 4:45 PM

    “The talent is there … I think if we just take care of the small things we are in good shape.”

    This has been the Cowboys’ refrain for several years now, and we’ve seen the results. As a lifelong Cowboys fan, I hope they’ve passed this mindset-of-doom to the Eagles.

  42. chris6523 says: Nov 20, 2011 4:49 PM

    Good luck with that.

  43. dgreenfi says: Nov 20, 2011 4:51 PM

    Hmm… this whole thing seems Shady.

  44. bster01 says: Nov 20, 2011 4:54 PM

    The sheagles won’t win another game! I love it maybe Vick should learn how to be a man from romo.

  45. armchairqb says: Nov 20, 2011 4:59 PM

    It’s really hard to type when I’m laughing so hard …

  46. mistrezzrachael says: Nov 20, 2011 5:32 PM

    Not with that attitude they won’t….Win 1 game first.

    Eagles are clueless.

  47. liquidalfa says: Nov 20, 2011 5:43 PM

    I don’t know what he’s basing this on.

    Last week in a game they MUST have they lose at home to a 2 win team playing an inexperienced backup QB.

    The week before that they lose another MUST win game at home to the Bears.

  48. lilrob10201 says: Nov 20, 2011 7:05 PM

    They asked him a question, wtf is he supposed to say? “Oh, no, I don’t think we’re good enough”? Come on, this is silly.
    ————————–
    I agree.Because if Lesean McCoy said “No we are not good enough to beat the Giants ” then all these articals will come out saying “Lesean McCoy has no faith in his team” or “Lesean McCoy doesent think this team is good enough to win.”

  49. cleverbob says: Nov 20, 2011 11:32 PM

    VY1.0

    Funny JDandcoke neither do the giants. Eli and Tom coughlin are chokers. There was one season the defense was good enough to overcome those two. Glad the birds could screw the giants season.
