Running back LeSean McCoy, very often was the single bright spot in games in the 2012 season, was featured as the 45th player in the league as voted by his peers.

It's Avant's time to step up or be left behind...

A lot of PR juice out there about Eagles' WR Jason Avant being challenged to step up and take over a leadership role not just on the offense but on the team...
