LeSean McCoy named FedEx Ground Player of the Week

Well deserved award for the Eagles star running back.

Patrick Smith

In case you haven't noticed before, LeSean McCoy is kind of good. Apparently I am not alone in this thought.

A large number of fans who voted for the NFL's FedEx Ground Player of the Week selected the Eagles star running back as the award winner. Really, it was an obvious decision.

McCoy finished with 184 yards on 31 carries (5.9 yards per carry!) which included a 34 yard touchdown run. Shady also forced 9 (!) missed tackles on Monday, according to PFF. Simply put, he was terrific.

McCoy seems like the perfect fit in Chip Kelly's offense. His ability to shift direction while running is uncanny and very useful. Combine McCoy's ability with a very good run blocking offensive line and Chip Kelly's offense... and I don't think it will be surprising to see Shady win this award again. McCoy will be a major offensive weapon for the Eagles all year long.
