McCoy ready for the starting job

 

Lesean McCoy has so far started 3 games in place of Brian Westbrook, who has been injured for the past couple of weeks as the guys already know. Westbrook has had 2 concussions the past 2-3 weeks. 

In Lesean's starts for Westbrook, he has had 44 carries for 220 yards and 2 touchdowns. That is about 5 yards per carry, which is pretty good for a rookie. Mccoy has been pretty good, but he will have to do a lot, such as block very well, hit the holes better, and try to do those famous Westbrook screens. Lesean will definitley be able to fill Westbrook's shoes. He will improve over the next games we have, and will show us why the Eagles drafted him in the second round.

Comparison to other rookie running backs drafted this year:

 

Knowshon Moreno #27 RB(Broncos)- 

 

 (The guy we were supposed to draft if the Broncos didn't snag him so high.) 

2009 STATS FANTASY 2009
ATT YDS AVG LONG TD OWN(WK+/-) AVG DRAFT
132 520 3.9 28 2 96.6(-0.0) 70.8

Beanie Wells #26 RB(Cardinals)- 

 

 (Eagles weren't really considering him anyway) 

2009 STATS FANTASY 2009
ATT YDS AVG LONG TD OWN(WK+/-) AVG DRAFT
86 395 4.6 29 3 64.0(-0.9) 95.1

 

 

Donald Brown #31 RB(Colts)- 

 

(Another guy that the Eagles could have drafted/ and might have drafted had Jeremy Macclin would not have fallen so low)(Just the Raiders being the Raiders, but hey it helped us) 

2009 STATS FANTASY 2009
ATT YDS AVG LONG TD OWN(WK+/-) AVG DRAFT
50 226 4.5 45 2 72.3(-2.4) 106.6

And Lesean Mccoy's 66 yard run against the Giants week 8: 

Thought this could cheer you guys up 

LeSean McCoy's Amazing run 

 

P.S: I found it funny that when i searched Chris Wells the football player didn't come up. Then I thought of his nickname Beanie, and that's what ESPN catoragized his name as. I guess his nickname stuck with him.
