LeSean McCoy on return to Philadelphia: 'You all know who's next'

BY foxsports • December 7, 2015

Coming off of their sixth win of the season, the Buffalo Bills will pay a visit to the Philadelphia Eagles, who just knocked off the New England Patriots.

Not only will this be a game between two playoff hopefuls in need of a win, but it'll feature the return of one of the all-time best Eagles.

LeSean McCoy will face his former team for the first time since being traded to Buffalo for Kiko Alonso in the offseason, but he didn't offer much as far as his feelings for the game.

"I mean, you all know who's next," McCoy said in his post-game press conference, via Syracuse.com.

McCoy didn't say anything more about the return to Philadelphia, but he's almost certainly had that game circled for a while -- especially given the way he was shipped out of town. And with the Eagles struggling to run the ball this season, McCoy probably wouldn't mind having a huge game to show them what they're missing.

His head coach Rex Ryan -- who faced his former team, the New York Jets earlier this season -- had more to say on McCoy going back to Philadelphia.

"It's gonna be special. There's no question, it'll be special. We're not gonna send him out for warm-ups. Maybe that's what we need to do," Ryan said. "But no, I think obviously it's gonna be special. He cares a great deal about a lot of those guys over there. His teammates and things, and you know what that community means to him, and he's a Pennsylvania guy. So obviously that's gonna be a huge game for him."

McCoy has out-rushed every running back on the Eagles roster -- his replacement, DeMarco Murray, included. He's had a great first season in Buffalo and is fifth in the NFL in rushing yards per game.
