LeSean McCoy Surprisingly Quiet In Week 5 For Philadelphia Eagles
LeSean McCoy was expected to feast on a below-average New York Giants secondary and group of linebackers. It didn’t happen. While McCoy had a mostly solid first half, the Giants stacked the box in the second half and shut him out for the most part.
A lot of this had to do with the quarterback change for the Philadelphia Eagles when Michael Vick got injured. When Vick was in, the Giants had to respect the option that Vick had to run the ball and play a little more loosely. Once Nick Foles came in, they had a chance to tee off on McCoy and stack 7-8 guys to totally shut down the run.
Lucky for the Eagles on this day, the passing game was clicking on all cylinders. DeSean Jackson and the tight ends exposed the Giants’ secondary and linebackers on a day where it didn’t matter that Shady was quiet for a majority of the second half.
You wonder if this is how teams will play the Eagles going forward, especially when Foles is in at quarterback. If that’s the case, the second-year quarterback is in for a tough test, especially on Sunday. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers feature a solid defensive secondary that include Pro Bowl talents Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson. There may not be as much room on Sunday downfield as there was against a woeful Giants unit.
Hopefully, McCoy can do a better job of keeping the Bucs defense honest so the Eagles can win on Sunday on the ground and through the air.
