LeSean McCoy might not play for the Eagles anymore, but he’s still very much the same person. The former Philadelphia running back has never been shy to speak his mind.
There was that funny time he called Osi Umenyiora ‘overrated n soft.’ In 2015, he called out Chip Kelly for essentially being racist. Today, Shady threw some shade at NFL player grading site Pro Football Focus.
@PFF u guys suck ... a bunch of nerds who never played a lick of football in your whole life.— Lesean McCoy (@CutonDime25) February 13, 2017
After reading that I couldn’t help but think of Homer Simpson.
Shady’s tweet was prompted by the fact McCoy didn’t make PFF’s Top 101 players list (which we wrote about yesterday). It’s funny because McCoy apparently doesn’t think PFF’s opinion matters ... except he’s mad because he doesn’t like their rankings.
PFF hasn’t been high on McCoy in the past, either. As the Eagles’ starter in 2014, PFF graded McCoy 55th out of 57 running backs.
McCoy is hardly the first NFL player to criticize PFF and their methods. He certainly won’t be the last.
