LeSean wants “some rings” for the Eagles

McCoy AP

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy carried the FedEx Ground player of the year award out of Saturday night’s NFL Honors without a box.  He wants his next prize to fit on his finger.

“Now I need some rings,” McCoy said, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer.  “Philadelphia’s waiting, baby.”

The wait feels a lot closer than it did a year ago, based on the first season of coach Chip Kelly’s tenure.

“Everybody’s excited about the players, the team, the things we’ve done this year,” McCoy said. “We’d love to be the up-and-coming team. And I can’t wait. . . . The first year, we learned more about the offense, about the mistakes. We had to get the wrinkles out. I’m excited to get back.”

McCoy was regarded as a potential MVP candidate, given his 1,607 rushing yards. But with 50 voters and one vote per person, McCoy ultimately got as many MVP vote as Blaine Gabbert. And me.

McCoy’s ultimate goal is to get votes for a Super Bowl MVP award.  Or at least a few more than Blaine Gabbert.  And me.

Players on 30 other teams are surely having the same thoughts as the Broncos and Seahawks prepare to play in New Jersey.  And after getting a taste of the championship game today, the Broncos and Seahawks surely will want to return.

    McCoy is better with the ball in in hands and not his foot in his mouth. If the only way people pay attention to you is from quotes after the regular season, maybe you should just leave the talk up to the guys still playing.

    Lesean, how about a playoff win? You guys have never won a SB let alone lots.

    I hope McCoy never wins another playoff game after that immature punk waltzed around with his stupid ass “title belt” like he was some wrestler because he was rushing champion.

    I thought the Eagles were 2 to 3 moves away. After watching that Seattle defense, however it’s clear they aren’t. They need a big play making wide receiver, and they need a ton of help on defense: at least 2 safties, an inside and outside linbacker and at least one corner. And that all assumes Nick Foles’ career consistently plays at the level he did this season. The best realalistic case is Super Bowl L. They just have too many needs.
