LeSean McCoy had a big game in the Bills’ win over the Jets last night, rushing for 112 yards. Afterwards, he sat down with the NFL Network crew, and when asked about Rex Ryan being a players’ coach – perhaps the best players’ coach ever to have missed the playoffs every season since 2010 – he took a moment to remind everyone that some coaches aren’t like that:
“He’s been good to us, he’s a player coach… small example, like we had a short week, for this week. We didn’t practice at all. Walkthroughs, more mental. Because the guys are banged up. You know, you play a physical game like this, you need time to get your body healed up, you need rest and recovery. Things like that, that some coaches don’t look forward to doing. That’s a small example. That’s something that Rex does.”
Somehow, I feel like McCoy didn’t have any complaints about recovery and conditioning after he tore up the Lions for 147 yards in the fourth quarter in Week 14 of 2013, when the cold didn’t bother him anyway. So, LeSean, let it go, let it go, because you and Chip are never, ever getting back together:
Proud of that reference. Proud of it.
