LeSean McCoy: Brady is the best QB I’ve played with, then Mahomes

Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy hasn’t played with Tom Brady yet, but he says Brady is already the best quarterback he’s played with.

McCoy was asked to name the best quarterback he has played with and said it’s Brady, the greatest of all time, followed by Patrick Mahomes, who won the Super Bowl MVP last year while McCoy was on the Chiefs.

“It would be Tom Brady for sure,” McCoy said. “Brady would be number one obviously, even though we haven’t played a game. It would go Brady, Mahomes, and then Mike Vick and Donovan McNabb.”

McCoy began his NFL career with the Eagles in 2009, in McNabb’s final year as their starting quarterback, and then played primarily with Vick for three years and then with Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez for a year each and Tyrod Taylor for three years and Josh Allen for one year in Buffalo. McCoy has seen a lot of quarterbacks, but he has a clear choice for the best.

  1. I’d be hard pressed to find someone who has played with better QB’s for most of his career than he has.

  2. LOL. What a loaded and leading question. The Bucs gave Shady what is likely his last pro contract. Of course he’s going to pimp Brady in that situation. If you ask him that question a year or two from now, you might just get a different answer.

  3. When did he ever play a game with Tom Brady as his QB? Does practice against your own defense really count? But yes he is the goat there is no question.

  4. I hope this isn’t controversial. Brady is at the highest level you can be at in terms of his knowledge of football and how to play QB. If his physical skills are still there (all reports seem to suggest he has looked as good as ever), he should be the best QB anyone has played with. Mahomes himself admitted he is still learning the QB position. He is certainly on track to reach the Brady, Montana, Brees and Manning level of QB, but he’s still only going into year 3 as a starter in the league.

  5. I get we’re talking about Brady here, but does anyone truly expect Shady to say his current QB isn’t the best?

  6. McCoy has played with some good QBs for sure in his career, but it is a pretty steep drop off after Brady and Mahomes to Vick and McNabb. Brady is the Greatest NFL Player of All-Time, Mahomes is the only player in the game today who has any chance of ever challenging Brady for G.O.A.T, he has a long way to go, but the ability and leadership seem to be there, and Vick/McNabb are, well, Vick and McNabb.

  7. McCoy’s list of QB’s he’s played with is not a very impressive list, so anybody would have said the same thing.

    Sorry Flash… But what does that even mean?
    How can you be the “Greatest of all time”… SIX times???

    Seems like that is a ONCE kind of thing…

  9. On the flip side, when Mahomes was asked who the best RB he’s played with Mahomes said….

    “I’ve only been in the league for 3 years, I’ve played with a lot of great RB’s.” Such a classy guy.

    Of course Mahomes hasn’t been sent packing bay 5 teams so he doesn’t have the level of bitterness McCoy has. If McCoy wasn’t a fumble guy, he’d still be in KC. Poor guy didn’t even get to dress in the playoff games last year.

  10. He should have not even answered the question.

    However since he did-arguments could be made either way. Mahomes is the best right now-but over the course of a career who knows.

  11. McCoy would have contributed more to the 2019 Chiefs Super Bowl team if he didn’t carry the football like it was a loaf of bread. He barely holds onto the football, and fumbles…. a lot…. You can’t put a guy out there who is going to lay the football on the field if it is a crucial situation. McCoy needs to see that NFL video about how to hold onto the football, and the 5 points of pressure on the football.
