From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 29): McCoy is trying to break everything outside and can not win those races to the edge against good defenses. The offensive line is a major issue, but Shady is just not hitting the holes like he was last year. You have to keep him in your lineup, but expectations are falling each week for this top 3 pick.

General News (Tue Sep 30): had nowhere to run for the second straight week, and head coach Chip Kelly admitted that the offensive line was beat all day by the San Francisco 49ers. "We got whooped up front," Kelly said. "We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality." Philadelphia gained just 22 yards on 12 rushing attempts in Week 4, and McCoy ran 10 times for 17 yards. It's only the fifth time in the last 40 years that the Eagles had two straight games with 54 or fewer rushing yards.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs IND (20 / 79 / 1 rush, 5 / 4 / 23 / 0 rec)

McCoy had a 12 yard pass from Foles that he raced to the right side of the field with ease for the first down. Later in the same drive down in the redzone McCoy could find no room to run and had 2 back to back 2 yard losses as the Colts hit him immediately behind the line of scrimmage. On the Eagles third offensive possession McCoy started it out with 3 straight runs of 6, 2, and 2 yards and picked up the first down. The third down run was the best as he was stuffed at the line but was able to shift his way up field and pick up the necessary yards to collect the first down. McCoy had a great run of 12 yards where he started things out to the left side of the field and then had to shift his way through traffic and come back to the middle of the field and did what he does best in making defenders miss at the point of contact. McCoy juggled a screen pass from Foles to the right side and quickly secured the ball and picked up 8 yards. McCoy had a fantastic run for another first down on a 12 yard run where he shifted back and forth and just used his speed to collect the necessary first down yards. McCoy then saw a 2 yard run followed by a 4 yard loss and then a modest 3 yard reception from Foles inside the Colts 10 yard line. Being backed up on their own 13 yard line McCoy took a handoff for a 13 yard gain to the left side of the field. McCoy took off to the left for a strong 16 yard gain and ended up later punching the ball into the endzone for the Eagles first touchdown of the game as he slide his way right up the middle and made sure to get past the goal line. McCoy had another electric run on a 3rd and 15 that he took for 21 yards and a first down. That particular play was extremely big as it led to the Eagles tying the game at 20-20 on a following Darren Sproles touchdown.

2014 Week 3 vs WAS (20 / 22 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)

McCoy started the game with back to back runs of 1 yard and then 9 yards and picked up the first down but ended up leaving the game with a possible concussion. He returned half way through the second quarter and on his next three runs went for 2 yards, 1 yard and then a negative 2 yards. Washington's defense was containing McCoy all day long and hitting him at the line of scrimmage every time he handled the ball. The Eagles continued to give the ball to McCoy but there was no room on the day for him to do any damage as he ran for 4 yards and then followed it up with a 3 yard loss and a fumble out of bounds. He tried to dance it out to the outside and just ended up in the end getting hit sideways and the ball came out and flew out of bounds. McCoy tried to take a lot of runs to the outside on the day and Washington hit them early and often as soon as they could and McCoy just couldn't seem to find a lane to run in. He did a lot of dancing in the backfield and showed several t

2014 Week 4 vs SF (10 / 17 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

McCoy started the game with a screen pass from Foles for no gain out to the right side, and then went right back to the same side of the field on a run and could only manage to gain 1 yard. He is seeming to force his runs to the outside and there is just no room for him to run. McCoy continued to struggle on the day and had a 4 yard gain up the middle. After the 49ers cut the lead to 21 - 20 the Eagles fed McCoy on back to back runs of 0 and 5 yards. On the next Eagles drive McCoy started it off with a loss of 4 yards and continued to show his frustration with any lack of finding open space. He was clearly frustrated on the day and couldn't find any room to run. He picked up a decent 5 yard gain on a run to the right side and finally found some space to the outside where he was struggling all game long. On the 49ers 6 yard line McCoy had his best run of the day for 5 yards and just missed getting into the endzone. It was a shame that they ran that play on 2nd down and didn't run it on first down and come back to McCoy on any of the next plays on the goal line.

Eagles | No LeSean McCoy at goal line (Mon Sep 29, 09:48 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy didn't carry the ball on third or fourth down from the San Francisco 49ers' 1-yard line in fourth quarter of the team's Week 4 loss, and head coach Chip Kelly said he didn't trust the offensive line in the situation. 'We weren't really getting a ton of push at the point of attack,' Kelly said. 'I didn't think we were going to be able to pound it in in that situation.'

Eagles | No treatment for LeSean McCoy (Mon Sep 29, 09:07 PM) - Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (toe) is not injured, head coach Chip Kelly said Monday, Sept. 29. 'He's not on the treatment list,' Kelly said. 'He does normal maintenance like everybody else, but he hasn't had any injuries where we've done anything with him.' McCoy struggled again in Week 4, and there were rumors his struggles this season have been linked to a turf toe injury suffered during the preseason.

Our View: Of all qualifying backs, McCoy is dead last (47th) in yards after contact per rush (.71). He's 31st in yards before contact per rush (2.03). Both of these stats show how poorly the Eagles offensive line is blocking for the ground game.

Our View: The Eagles offensive line might as well be manned by a group of employees from the Geek Squad at Best Buy. McCoy ranks 31st in the league averaging only 2.03 yards before contact per rush.

Eagles | Eagles o-line hurting running game (Mon Sep 29, 02:10 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy had nowhere to run for the second straight week, and head coach Chip Kelly admitted that the offensive line was beat all day by the San Francisco 49ers. “We got whooped up front,” Kelly said. “We’re not very good up front right now.

Eagles | Line play hurting LeSean McCoy (Mon Sep 29, 08:27 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy had 10 carries for 17 yards Sunday, Sept. 28, and has 29 carries for 39 yards in the last two weeks. 'We got whooped up front,' head coach Chip Kelly said. 'We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality.'

Our View: The Eagles offensive line is in shambles right now. We'll see if the team finds a way to get this ground game jump started. Until we see McCoy look like his old self, we can only recommend him as a RB2 with risk.
