Philadelphia Eagles running-back LeSean McCoy has revealed confidence in himself, saying he wants to carry the team to victory.
The 25-year-old believes he's capable of performing the offensive duties, and relishes in the responsibility of doing so.
"I feel like this game, I've got to put the offense on my back," McCoy told reporters on Wednesday. "I want to roll. I feel like myself and the big guys up front -- we've got to put this game on our back and take of business and get a win."
McCoy set the Eagles franchise record for rushing yards with 217, and the American also moved to praise his coach Chip Kelly.
"He's an offensive genius," McCoy added. "I don't have to tell him I want the ball, I need the ball. He knows the right plays to run. I don't know that stuff. He knows exactly when to run it, when to throw it, when to get his playmakers the ball."
Philadelphia play their next game against the Chicago Bears, and are well prepared for the dangers the Bears pose,
"We watched the tape," McCoy continued. "A lot of guys are gashing them. Missed tackles and things like that, it all adds up. It's a big game. I feel like the matchup is there."
In an eye-opening revelation that reveals the lack of attention McCoy pays to stats, he also stressed the importance of winning regardless of how it's done, and whatever individuals are involved:
"You don't keep track," he said. "It doesn't matter. Run it or throw it, as long as we win, it doesn't matter."
