Eagles running back LeSean McCoy routinely offers up plenty of interesting sound bites. On Monday, he provided a couple of them.
According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, McCoy weighed in on both of the NFL’s New York teams, the Giants and the Jets.
As to the Giants, McCoy was unfazed by the offseason additions. “I’m not paying attention to the Giants,” he said. “What’ve they done? Signed some guys. Big deal.”
As to the Jets, McCoy is ready to declare a winner of the team’s quarterback competition between Geno Smith and Mike Vick.
“He’s going to be the Jets’ starting quarterback,” McCoy said of Vick. “He’s way better than Geno Smith. Way better. That’s no contest.”
McCoy also believes Vick would still be the starter in Philly if he hadn’t gotten injured last year. McCoy misses the fact that Vick gets injured pretty much every year. Last year, his replacement, Nick Foles, was good enough to keep Vick on the bench after he healed.
This year, the ultimate question for Vick will be whether, once he’s inevitably injured, Smith will be able to play well enough to claim the job.
