LeSean Perspective - Iggles Blitz
LeSean McCoy is a great RB, but an interesting question is whether he will end up being one of the all-time greats. There is no doubting the fact he has unique ability and does special things.

Only through two seasons so far, Griffin has led the burgundy and gold on two completely opposite paths. As a rookie, RG3 almost single-handedly put Washington in the playoffs, guiding the club on a seven-game winning streak to steal first place in the NFC East. But in 2013, it was more like RG3-13—the team’s record after finishing with eight consecutive losses.
