Eagles running back LeSean McCoy: 'I am the same player'

Thursday November 20th, 2014

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy took issue with a question a reporter asked Wednesday about whether he is the same player he was last year.

Last season McCoy ran for a franchise-record 1,607 yards and scored nine rushing touchdowns.

Through 10 games this season, he has recorded 729 yards on the ground and two scores and his yards per carry has dipped from 5.1 to 3.7.

From ESPN.com:

"I'm not even going to address 'am I the same player?'" McCoy said. "That's for you all to figure out."

Then he answered the question anyway.

"Are you crazy?" he said. "I am the same player. I'm not going to sit here and play that game, like, 'Am I the same player?'"
