(Credit: phillysportscentral) On Monday night, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy reminded the NFL why he was a top five running back just two seasons ago. During the team’s Monday night game, McCoy carried the ball 31 times for 184 yards and a touchdown. He also had one reception for 5 yards. Despite helping his team to a win and currently leading the league in rushing yards, McCoy tells Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com that he hopes the team does a better job of rotating him out. “I didn’t mind it Monday night,” McCoy said this week, per Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com. “I think we can do a better job rotating because it’s a long season. I don’t think I need to have the ball 31, 32 times in a game for us to be a successful offense. We have too many different weapons.” Back up running back Bryce Brown finished the game with 9 attempts. Still, McCoy thinks Brown showed last year that he is capable of being a talented running back. “I think the running backs we have here can definitely play,” McCoy said. “Bryce Brown showed you last year he’s definitely a talented back. So I think we have to do a better job of monitoring the reps.” While McCoy may be concerned about his health, he is one of the only options in Philadelphia. If the team wants to make the playoffs, they may have to ride the back of McCoy similar to that of Minnesota with Adrian Peterson last season. When you consider the fact that Riley Cooper is the number two wide out in Philadelphia, there are not many other options on the team. For now, McCoy leads the league in rushing yards, but if he has his way, he may not lead in that category for long.
