THAT MUTHA!!!! Throw me a freaking bone here!!!
A lot of us saw what the Eagles did on Monday Night right before our debacle. They are going to run that ball often. Lesean McCoy is going to get a ton of reps and they will be using that read option to get Mike Vick out in space also. We will get some of Bryce Brown, but he isn’t one of the guys we will be too worried about.
We definitely will have to slow down that run. Lesean McCoy ran wild on the Redskins defense. He racked up 180 yards on the ground. He even looked like he needed a breather in the game. We are going to have to contain that somehow.
McCoy is ridiculously elusive with the football in his hands and in space. Chip Kelly is making sure to get him out in space on offense also. We better have those guys that can make open field tackles out there. McCoy will make some of our guys look silly.
