The big question on who will be the Eagles starting quarterback continues to buzz around in Philadelphia. LeSean McCoy was the next guy asked about his thoughts on the quarterback situation and gave an interesting take.
That’s why they pay Chip Kelly the big bucks, to pick the quarterback. Whoever he picks, I’m fine with. As long as I get my carries, I don’t care who they pick. You get used to everybody. And a guy might go down. Last year, we had so many guys go down. I think if we practiced that way last year, we would have been a lot better. You’re comfortable with the way the guys block, or you’re comfortable getting a pass from Nick Foles, or whoever it is. The biggest thing is, I’ve been working, trying to get healthy and trying to get back to my all-pro year. I’m looking for this year to be a successful year, as an individual and also as a team. We have the right players to get the job done, right along with a nice coach. The sky’s the limit.
Obviously McCoy took notes from hist teammate DeSean Jackson, who was criticized for publicly acknowledging that he wanted to know who the starting quarterback was by training camp. It is hard to imagine that Shady truly “doesn’t care” who the starting quarterback is going to be. Still, the fact that Shady is focused on returning to his all-pro form is an encouraging sign.
