Eagles running back LeSean McCoy sent a message to the Browns ahead of Sunday’s matchup between the teams.
“We got you,” McCoy said during an appearance on WIP in Philadelphia.
Conventional wisdom agrees with that sentiment as the Browns are featuring rookies at quarterback and tailback, assuming Trent Richardson is ready to go. It would be hard to find too many people who don’t think that the Eagles “got” this one.
The Eagles exposed themselves to ridicule last season by putting the cart before the horse in the preseason. There hasn’t been anything like the “Dream Team” comment this year, although there’s still been plenty of confidence about the year to come from members of the team. McCoy fits right in with the rest of the group.
“I feel like we’re on the right path. I think Coach Reid has done a great job of getting a group of guys together, and we’re ready to roll,” McCoy said. “I’m so excited about this season, I kind of forget about all the last year’s feeling and emotions. I kind of moved on. The season didn’t go well, that’s all I can remember.”
This season needs to go better or there could be winds of change blowing through the Eagles organization.
