LeSean McCoy isn’t one of those NFL players who is known for keeping his opinion to himself. McCoy is actually known to shoot his mouth, or his Twitter off more than once so it really shouldn’t come as a bit of a shock that he’s making headlines yet again.
During a walk through the airport, star stalker website TMZ managed to corner the Philadelphia Eagles star running back and asked him a series of questions. Some of the queries directed at McCoy were tame and tossaway such as who was a bigger star in Philly “Will Smith or Rockie?”
There was one question that will likely get a few fans angry at LeSean McCoy. The question that got a rather distinct answer was when he was asked who the best NFL player who currently doesn’t have a job might be. McCoy was asked to choose between Vince Young and Tim Tebow.
McCoy stopped walking for a moment and fired back a rather incredulous “Tim Tebow?” When it was explained the interviewer was just trying to come up with some examples, LeSean McCoy answered that his son is two and he’d take him over Tim Tebow.
LeSean has taken heat before for being less than positive about a fellow professional football player. This winter, LeSean tweeted out a less than friendly tweet about Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno. Despite catching quite a bit of flack the Eagles star refused to apologize.
LeSean does seem to be a bit more courteous when it comes to former teammates. Turns out LeSean seems to be the only Eagle who has come forward to defend wide receiver DeSean Jackson after his release. Most of their teammates have been staying clear after claims of gang membership and perhaps worse in the locker room; selfishness came to the surface.
For his part, McCoy told Phillymag.com the release of Jackson was a surprise to him.
“I think anybody that tells you that they’re happy about it, I don’t know how honest that would be. It was a surprise. You heard so much, you didn’t really know. Not playing with him this year is gonna definitely be different. And playing against him is really gonna be different. I just imagine all the times we used to… knowing defensive teams are gonna try to defend us and different things like that, and now we’ve gotta defend against him, so it’s gonna be a little different.” LeSean McCoy added.
