LeSean McCoy says Vick cheated in race

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy met the media after the Eagles OTA on Monday and one of the topics up for discussion was the footrace he lost to quarterback Michael Vick earlier this offseason.

McCoy channelled one-time Jerry Seinfeld antagonist Duncan Meyer in his response. Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that McCoy said Vick left before the gun during their race and that he has video proof to back up his charge. That proof hasn’t yet seen the light of day and we’re pretty sure of what Vick’s answer would be if he was challenged to another race.

“I choose not to run.”

Strangely, that wasn’t the only moment that McCoy’s real life sounded like a Seinfeld episode on Monday. Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News passes along word that McCoy spent all of Monday referring to rookie quarterback Matt Barkley as Mark. It wasn’t some kind of rookie hazing. McCoy admitted that he thought Barkley’s first name actually was Mark and that Barkley “never said anything” during practice.

This has anything to do with how the Eagles will do this season, but better to get something like this out of the way before it turns into a Susie and Elaine problem.

  1. McCoy should just be glad Vick didn’t do to him what he did to all his dogs that lost.

  2. On wikipedia it says McCoy only ran a 4.5 at the combine. I thought he was faster than that, but I guess not. There are a lot of players in the league that would beat McCoy, not just an old Mike Vick.

  3. who cares their both LOSERS on a LOSER TEAM.!!!! Empty Trophy Case Franchise.

  4. The next contest will be to see which one is master of their domain…

  5. WHY do we care about something that happened in a totally meaningless race??? Typical Shady.

  6. If Barkley does well theres gonna be a split locker room. Half for Vick and half for Barkley. Either way, if Vick isn’t the starter then ur gonna hear all sorts of things from McCoy and Jackson.

  7. Shady having a Twitter war with his baby moma, then losing a race with an old QB, and now he doesn’t know Barkley’s first name.

    Just make sure he is aware of the NFL’s drug policy. That’s all I’m sayin’.

  8. Eagles are gonna be a disaster this year. Chip Kelly runs back to the NCAA by seasons end. On the bright side, at least you get Jadaveon.

  9. Previous reports state he was SMOKED in the race and lost by more than 5 yards. I DOUBT he was 5 TSS ahead BEFORE shady took off.

  10. I can’t believe that Vick would ever break the rules. He’s such a classy upstanding guy!

  11. i actually think Shady was trying to clown Matt Barkley by calling him by that other USC quarterback’s name. Mark? come on. if he said Mike or Mitch cool, but Mark Sanchez? smh. pretty sure that stung Matt a little hence the silence

  12. Chip Spurrier will lead this DREAM TEAM to a 0-16 record BANK ON IT. Wannabe coach + wannabe talent = laughingstock of the NFL. Your best player is Kurt Coleman, and that’s only because he picked off Rex Grossman 4 times when he was arguably a top 6 quarterback that year. Other than that, I heared the Omaha Beef needs competition LOL.

  13. When you said that he had more things in his life in common with a Seinfeld episode I was praying that it was that he agreed to lose a tennis match to Milos “another point for Milos!” unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be.

  14. Its so crazy how many Redskins fans always post hateful and repetitive comments after Eagles stories. “Eagles are loser. No Superbowls.” It must be a miserable existence to be a hate filled person. At the end of the day I am proud to be an Eagles fan from the City of Brotherly Love. Even if this Chip Kelly team goes 0-16, I am still going to love them. You will never catch me posting negativity about the Redskins because I don’t give a damn about them. Peace and Love. E-A-G-L-E-S 4 life!

  15. The playoff teams will enjoy a merry Christmas this year. The eagles will be 1 of 20 other teams enjoying a festivus for the rest of us. Maybe when frank calls for the airing of grievances McCoy Vick and Barkley can wrestle. Probably the most excitement the eagles will have this year. Unless your a fan of one of their opponents. Too bad my seahawks don’t get them this year. A second bye week would have been sweet

  16. They can race again when they become the Eagles scout team offense after “Mark” Barkley and Bryce Brown take over their starting jobs.
