Here’s a nice little GIF (via @8bitSports) that shows just how tough it can be to track and bring down Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.
In their Thursday win against the Carolina Panthers, McCoy managed to evade at least 5 defenders on this 21-yard run.
Via HuffPost: ‘After taking a handoff from quarterback Nick Foles, McCoy ran left, juked the first Panthers players that got close and then cut his run back across the field to make sure that no defender was left out of the fun. While Panthers cornerback Drayton Florence and linebacker Thomas Davis were perhaps the most exposed by McCoy’s first two cuts, they weren’t the only players left reeling and reaching in his wake. ‘
