LeSean McCoy Sees Sunday As A Revenge Game
By Steve Beck
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was on 94WIP’s Angelo Cataldi and the WIP Morning Show Friday and said he and a lot of his teammates are looking at Sunday’s game against Arizona as a revenge game.
The Eagles lost to the Cardinals 21-17 in Week 10 last season at Lincoln Financial Field.
“I think a lot of guys are thinking about how last year we could have gotten a little farther, or had that one more game to get to the playoffs. The past is the past, but we’re still thinking about it,” McCoy said.

McCoy was then asked if it was weird to play against his former teammate Kevin Kolb on Sunday.
“Not really. I know a lot of guys. I got a good friend over there, his name is Larry Fitzgerald,” McCoy said.
McCoy then elaborated on Fitzgerald when he was asked if he thought Fitzgerald was the best wide receiver in the league.
“I would say so. I think he’s the kind of guy who has been so consistent, of catching balls, making plays, touchdowns. So, he’s definitely one of the best.”
McCoy, who only had a total of five fumbles before this season, has fumbled twice in the past two days and he addressed that topic.
“I don’t want to say a fluke, because it definitely happens, but I just got to be more conscious of it. I don’t think I’m a fumbling running back. I have two in two games, which is not good, but I have to be more focused, ball security at all times. It’s like something that you are good at, you never think about it, you just do it. I just have to be more conscious of it.”
McCoy was then asked if he has been contacted by the NFL about not saying anything about the replacement referees and twice he replied: “I cannot talk about that.”
