LeSean McCoy Stands by Comments That Knowshon Moreno “Sucks”

In case you missed it on Sunday, LeSean McCoy took to Twitter to hate on a fellow NFL running back. McCoy is one of the best at that position in the league, but he doesn’t think so highly of Knowshon Moreno. In fact, he thinks nothing of Moreno. The Philadelphia Eagles running back responded to a tweet from Skip Bayless that claimed the Denver Broncos running back was taking it to the Dallas Cowboys.

While it was true that the Broncos back was seemingly having his best game of the year against the Cowboys, McCoy didn’t think his best was all that impressive, responding to the tweet with a “Knowshon sucks” comment.

Twitter nearly exploded over the comment and many people were starting to think his account was hacked and that he didn’t and wouldn’t say something like that publicly. However, that wasn’t the case.

When asked by reporters on Wednesday if he stood by those comments, he had this to say:

“I don’t talk about the past, it is what it is. What I said is what I meant.”

Pretty harsh words coming from one running back to the next. I’m not sure if he’s still bitter over the Eagles loss to the Broncos, but I thought all running backs stuck together. Apparently I was sadly mistaken.

He might just have beef with Moreno, because when McCoy was asked about Doug Martin, he had nothing but nice things to say, calling him “a heck of a running back”.

Your move, Knowshon.
