Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is defending his only NFL coach he's ever had, Andy Reid, who has taken most the blame for the Eagles disappointing season.
"If you sat here and tried to name 5 to 8 coaches that's better than coach Reid, I would like to hear it," McCoy said. "Coach Reid's a good coach. He gets blamed for everything. Sometimes you break down the film, break down the plays and the mistakes, how do you fault the coach for that?"
Reid has an all-time win-loss record of 130-91, and an all-time playoff record of 10-9 in 14 seasons with the Eagles.
McCoy said he is "behind coach Reid 110 percent."
"I guess people have their own opinions, their minds are made up. The thing about the team is, we know how good a coach he really is," McCoy said. "Whatever happens happens, but I'm behind coach Reid 110 percent."
McCoy added: "It's the players he's brought here together to play, they weren't a good enough group ... I don't think he should get blamed for the turnovers they caused or the blown (coverages)."
Reid is likely to be coaching his final two games as the head coach of the Eagles this Sunday at home against Washington, and then on the road against the New York Giants the following week.
