For now, McCoy has not looked like the electrifying running back we've been used to seeing over the past few years. Think about it, did you notice him much yesterday?
McCoy has rushed for more than 73 yards just once in the last five weeks and that game came against the win-less Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He hasn't been able to turn the corner like he was early in the season and we haven't seen him hit the second level of the defense in weeks.
Part of this blame can be placed on the offensive line as there does not appear to be any holes at all for McCoy to break-through. But, in the same breath, McCoy has proved in the past that he just needs the ball to make an impact on the game - we just haven't seen that runner in a few weeks.
The Eagles offense has sputtered in recent weeks and it is no coincidence that McCoy's play hasn't been all that stellar. Yet, after all of this, he is still the NFL's leading rusher thanks to huge games against the Washington Redskins, San Diego Chargers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
If the Eagles want to compete, they're going to need McCoy to shoulder the workload to carry the offense. That may not be fair but that's reality.
