LeSean McCoy: Player profile

What asset does the Philadelphia Eagles possess that is lacking in the offense of the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and the Washington Redskins? Answer; an effective and consistent running game.

LeSean McCoy was the 53rd pick overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. The 5-11, 208 pound, running back from Pittsburgh, played only two seasons for the Panthers. In 2007, as a freshman, he rushed for 1,328 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also caught 33 passes for 244 yards and 1 TD.

He followed that performance as a sophomore in 2008 with 1,488 rushing yards, 21 touchdowns, 32 receptions for 305 yards, but no TD’s.

LeSean McCoyIn his rookie year in the NFL, (2009), he replaced Brian Westbrook after two injuries and performed at a high level, breaking Correll Buckhalter’s rookie rushing record. A sportswriter, Ralph Vacchiano wrote: “The fact that the Eagles are rolling without Brian Westbrook is, in part, a testament to how good this rookie is.”

McCoy suffered through multiple changes in coaching and quarterbacks. He improved every season until 2012. In mid-November, he suffered a concussion. He did not return until the 3rd week in December. He ended the season with 840 rushing yards. It was the first time since 2009 that he failed to rush for less than 1,000 yards.

LeSean McCoyIn his 5th season, 2013, he stayed healthy for all 16 games. His stats were more than good; they were terrific. He rushed for 1,607 yards, averaging 5.1 YPC, and nine touchdowns. In addition, as a receiver, he caught 52 passes for 539 yards and 2 TD’s. He fumbled only once. He was the NFL rushing champion. He was also the ‘all-purpose yards leader’ with 2,146.

In the entire NFL, only two running backs have the ability to change games; LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson. The only difference is that Philadelphia has a balanced attack on offense, and defense which can stop their opponents.

McCoy is a central figure defining why the Eagles will win the NFC East and go deep into the playoffs in 2014.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

  4. Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I
    wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would
    be enormously appreciated!
