Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' picks: Round 2/53 -- LeSean McCoy, RB, 5-11, 204, Pittsburgh...With Brian Westbrook turning 30 in September -- he was slowed by a knee injury last season -- the Eagles needed to get a back who could step in immediately and share the load with Westbrook. McCoy is a fast, explosive runner who can catch the ball out of the backfield. The biggest concern with him is his blocking; if he can't block well enough to protect the quarterback, he won't get on the field. - by The Sports Xchange

10/23/13 - RB LeSean McCoy, tghe NFL rushing leader, managed only 55 yards on 18 carries in last week's 17-3 loss to the Cowboys.

"Whenever Shady doesn't have a good game, it's kind of a little bit different than a lot of backs," Kelce said.
"A lot of backs, when they struggle, they blame the offensive line. Shady puts it on his shoulders. He always puts as much as he can on his back in terms of his output."
