Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy made headlines when he took to Twitter last week to declare that Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno “sucks.”
In response to ESPN’s Skip Bayless’ tweet on Oct. 6th “Peyton is doing what Peyton always does. But Knowshon is KILLING the Cowboys,” McCoy’s retweet simply said “Knowshon sucks.”
Usually after a insulting or controversial Tweet, we get the heartfelt apology or the old ”my account was hacked’ story.
Not the case with McCoy, who reaffirmed his stance that he does indeed think “Knowshon sucks.”
In his weekly press conference, McCoy was asked about his tweet, “I don’t want to talk about the past,” McCoy said, via CSNPhilly.com. “It is what it is. What I said is what I meant.”
McCoy was then asked if he regretted the tweet.
“No,” he replied.
To rub it in even more, McCoy started off his presser with “I just want to say I think Doug Martin is a heck of a running back,” McCoy said.
Does Martin suck? “Nah. He’s one of the better running backs for sure,” McCoy answered.
