McCoy claims official told him 'I need you for my fantasy team'
Appearing on 94 WIP with Anthony Gargano and Ike Reese, McCoy questioned whether players respected officials. And if the statement McCoy claimed he heard in-game during Sunday's victory over Baltimore is accurate, there's reason to wonder.
"They're like fans, kind of though," McCoy said with a laugh. "I'll be honest, they're like fans. One of the refs was talking about his fantasy team, like 'McCoy, come on, I need you for my fantasy,' ahhh, what?"
The context of that comment -- and whether the referee was making an attempt at lightheartedness -- wasn't clear. McCoy also said he interpreted Ray Lewis' actions after one call as intimidation.
"During the game, they made like a bad call or something, the ref, and I see Ray Lewis like pump his chest up, trying to scare him," McCoy said. "Don't you know (the ref) started stuttering? I'm like 'what's this?!'"
