Eagles beat writer Jeff McLane on RB LeSean McCoy:
Chip Kelly’s plans remain a mystery, but using deductive reasoning it’s safe to assume that LeSean McCoy, Bryce Brown and company will get more action than they did under Andy Reid. McCoy could thrive in Kelly’s college system, which had zone blocking schemes designed to create space for his running backs. McCoy thrives in space. Kelly likes to use his running backs just as much in the passing game. I think we’ve yet to see McCoy tap into his full potential as a ball catcher.
After an all pro 2011 season, McCoy wasn’t as productive last season. The injuries on the offensive line certainly didn’t help, and he did miss four games with a concussion, but there was something missing from his game – namely touchdowns. After reaching the end zone 20 times in 2011, McCoy scored only five times in 2012. Despite his off-the-field problems and some immaturity issues, I heard McCoy came into spring workouts in perhaps his best shape ever. He still has something to prove. He could have a blockbuster season.
