LeSean McCoy throws some shade Chris Johnson’s way

LeSean McCoy AP

Maybe Eagles running back LeSean McCoy’s feelings were a little hurt, that former teammate Michael Vick was willing to race him last year, but won’t run against new Jets teammate Chris Johnson.

So the man called Shady threw some shade in the direction of the artist formerly known as CJ2K.

“That’s Mike for you,” McCoy said, via Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com. “Ask him who the best back is, he’ll tell you me.”

While few would argue that McCoy is the better back at the moment, the insecurity is a bit troubling. And Vick might not want to dump on his new teammate just to spare the feelings of a former, slower one.

    Mccoy is getting annoying. Shut up and play

    All talk and no rings.

    McCoy looks like a smaller version of Tyrese in that photo. Which is weird since Tyrese is an actor, not a football player.

    LeBust McCoy, don’t you EVER mess with the best RB in the league, CJ2K! He and god will punish you later on! You’re just jealous that Chris will win a ring this year with God’s Team and you will be stuck with a first round playoff exit.

    Neither of you is the best. But McCoy is better than CJ by a mile.

    What “insecurity”?

    Lesean sounds like he’s compensating for something…

    McCoy is right. Insecure, but right.

  11. mdpickles says: Jul 28, 2014 9:07 AM

    Insecurity? Shady reminds me of 2007 Jimmy Rollins. When it feels good, you just want to tell everyone. What’s insecure about that?

    The generation of attention driven diva punks, will only get worse as time goes on.. No one cares about anything except you doing you job, and if you do it well, as you have, then stop with the teenager bravado… No one really cares

    As an Eagles fan I love what McCoy does on the field but he really needs to just shut up already.

  14. mancave001 says: Jul 28, 2014 9:48 AM

    I don’t view McCoy as insecure at all. Love his attitude. He’s a little immature at times, but overall that seems to be improving.

  15. addict2sport says: Jul 28, 2014 9:56 AM

    McCoy is failing at handling his success. Unfortunate.

  16. myeaglescantwin says: Jul 28, 2014 9:57 AM

    I love the guy, but i’m getting tired of his own personal campaign for canton.

    Let your play do the talking youngbeast

    Shady McCoy will be shutdown this season. He talks way too much

  18. eagles512 says: Jul 28, 2014 10:28 AM

    The insecurity is troubling? Maybe immature but certainly not troubling.

  19. officialgame says: Jul 28, 2014 10:41 AM

    It’s not talk when you can back it up Shady can back it up.

    When you constantly try to convince people you are the best at something there is a high probability you don’t actually believe it.

  21. ravenswhat says: Jul 28, 2014 12:26 PM

    Every time with this guy. Every time he opens his mouth, nothing but garbage flowing. Chip, you better get your boy in line. Quick.

  22. chris1cat says: Jul 28, 2014 1:01 PM

    I was thinking that he would be a great RB in my PPR league. I just can’t stand the mouth though and I will skip on it. I will find myself rooting against him and whoever drafts him all year!

  23. ericsports07 says: Jul 28, 2014 5:41 PM

    McCoy is an idiot. Shut up already. It all started when he was talkin sh!t about Riley Cooper for his racial slur out of anger. When you’re perfect then judge Cooper. Almost every time I hear that racial slur it comes out of the mouth’s of the race that was so offended by it. He has showed his ignorance or should I say arrogance ever since. The thing is, I was a fan of McCoy but now I could give a sh!t about him. He needs to grow up!

  24. duff23 says: Jul 28, 2014 6:12 PM

    Shady should ask reporters to ask Vick how many running backs have rushed for 2k in a season.

  25. hovenb says: Jul 28, 2014 7:17 PM

    Sounds to me like the offensive Richard Sherman…. except Shady is better.

  26. richiethegreek says: Jul 28, 2014 8:45 PM

    CHIP BETTER GET THIS UNDER CONTROL THE LOCKER ROOM IS FALLING APART!

  27. finkstweets says: Jul 28, 2014 10:06 PM

    Who cares, Shady is a baller. He is a great team player, and the focal point of the offense. He likes to talk, so what? Expect another fine year from the back.

  28. cr19812001 says: Jul 29, 2014 10:20 AM

    As Jamaal Charles is laughing at them both because he has both their best assets in one and is busy getting ready for the season by running sprints and not his mouth.

  29. back2dabasics86 says: Jul 29, 2014 4:37 PM

    Cj has more yards and TDs than shady ! No ? Check the stats lol

  30. kelleygrn4ever says: Jul 30, 2014 1:20 AM

    As long as he continues to win Rushing Titles, therefore showing he is the best at his position, he can talk all he wants. Fly, Eagles, fly…

  31. dexter191 says: Aug 1, 2014 7:18 PM

    so long as McCoy backs up his talk on the field Shady is worth the price of admission. You shut him up by shutting him down.
