Denver Broncos’ Knowshon Moreno becomes LeSean McCoy’s Latest Target

Brad Penner USA TODAY Sports

LeSean McCoy must have something against Knowshon Moreno.

McCoy took to Twitter on Sunday Night and proclaimed his displeasure with the Denver Broncos running back as he retweeted Skip Bayless, the famous co-host of ESPN First Take, claiming that “Knowshon sucks” along with the retweet.

What sparked this completely random act from McCoy? Individuals are entitled to their own opinion, but this appears to be another case of trash talk as he took the time and effort to share his opinion with the rest of the world. There are many reasons to believe that there was a call for his actions. I believe it is jealousy that provoked this.

Look at it this way, the Broncos are 5-0 and have almost everything going the right way for them. Moreno is emerging as a new target for Peyton Manning not only in the passing game, but also by taking some pressure off of the QB by running the ball and blocking.

All three of Moreno’s elements have helped the Broncos’ offense and protect Manning. Not to mention, Denver is one of the more dangerous teams in the league when they are firing on all cylinders.

McCoy is with a Philadelphia Eagles team that is 2-3 who saw Michael Vick go down with an injury, and are in the worst division in football this season. Not to mention that before their win on Sunday against the New York Giants, they had lost three straight games. I can understand if McCoy was frustrated, but to tell everyone online that a running back on the opposing team sucks is quite a low blow.

We must wonder how Moreno will take to being McCoy’s latest trash talk target. Everyone will be looking  to see if anything develops from this. I highly doubt anything will. But when it comes down to it, trash talking a player just reveals that the target is doing something right for his team.
