I see alot of people doubting that this guy will be "an every down back" or that he has "alot left to prove." The latter is of course true, but he's shown me enough already (college included) to be extremely confident in what he will do with full-time duty. Here's my prediction - 1600 total yards and 14 TDs. I'm particularly confident in his high touchdown count; he's shown a great nose for the endzone in both college and the pros. Remember the 2-point conversion play? He showed glimpses throughout the year of what he will do in his second year.
He's also been extremely durable, he got a ton of touches in college and didn't get banged up last year either. He's a bigger dude than Westbrook and he's been one of the best players on the field since he's played the game. I think Desean will still be a greater player next year, but I don't know if he will get enough touches to out-perform shady next year. Maclin could be really good next year too, but again I doubt he gets an adequate number of passes in his direction to out-perform the guy who is our primary halfback.
This kid can break tackles, block with good technique when he makes the correct read on a blitz, catch out of the backfield, and he's got great burst and balance. Did I mention he's great at finding the goal-line?
He will be aided by an offense that stretches the field with speed and occasionally draws him up plays where he will get the ball in open space. Hopefully our screen game can be a force again next year. McCoy is going to light it up.
***EDIT*** I meant team offensive MVP and I meant 1600 rushing + recieving
Will McCoy come close to 1600 yards and 14 TDs?
