Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has endured some Internet humiliation after losing to Michael Vick in a 40-yard footrace earlier this month. But McCoy, who at 24 is six years younger than his quarterback, is alleging that there may have been a bit of foul play on Vick's part. "With Mike, what happened with Mike was, it was a race," McCoy explained to reporters at the Eagles' practice facility on Monday. "I always call him old. I tell him that nobody over 30 can beat me in any race. We had the race, but he jumped off. He started early. I had to come catch Michael Vick. I had to catch him. And he beat me. But he won't race me again." The verdict of this race is apparently a big deal around Philadelphia, as Vick has fielded questions about it, too. He counters that his speed is the result of a new training and nutrition regimen he began to prepare for new head coach Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense. That didn't stop McCoy from spouting out excuses, though. "In a 40-yard race, the smallest jump matters," McCoy said. "First of all, he started down in a sprinter's stance. I was standing up. That was probably my first mistake. I should have never did that. But he won't race me again. I told him that. We can line up anywhere, he won't do it. He's smart." The true outcome of the race may remain a mystery (the running back claims to have photographic evidence, but he declined to share it), but at least McCoy can remember one of his quarterbacks' first names. Sorry, Matt (or is it Mark?) Barkley. You're not there yet.
