Question Of The Week

POLL OF THE WEEK: All Day or Shady McCoy?

The NFL’s reigning rushing leader LeSean McCoy is making headlines for two reasons this week.  First, he is claiming to be the best running back in the NFL, even better than Adrian Peterson.  Second, it is kind of a slow news week and these things happen this time of year.

Peterson has since stated that he doesn’t think McCoy believes what he said.

“(Laughing) It was funny because when Stephen A. (Smith) asked him the question, he kind of hesitated,” Peterson said this week. “And he didn’t believe it when he said it. I tell the youngsters, ‘Say it with your chest, like you mean it.'”

If I take my purple sunglasses off I can actually see where the case can be made for McCoy.  It is fairly easy to argue that he is the more complete running back in terms of pass catching and blocking.  Still… it’s Adrian Peterson and there has arguably never been a more feared ball carrier in the history of the sport.

So, what do you all think?  Does McCoy have a point or does his assertion seem a little shady?

Really, we are going to do this again? Yes he’s the greatest like CJ, Forte, Turner, Charles, Foster, and whoever else has had one super year. Let’s see how good AD can be with out being handicapped by a 3×5 play card this year. SKOL Vikes!

In today’s NFL, not too many pure runners left.

If Chip had Peterson in the backfield, he might run for 4K yards.

I’ll play devil’s advocate; McCoy is so different than AD it’s hard to compare the two. Comparing these 2 is like comparing Wes Welker and Andre Johnson or Jimmy Kleinsausser and Gronk. Gronk puts up the numbers and will be remembered but Jimmy was the best blocking TE of the 2000s. Andre was the best outside receiver while Welker was the greatest slot receiver possibly ever.
