There are some players who believe that they are the best at what they do. Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy went on ESPN’s First Take on Monday to announce that he believes that he is the best running back in the whole NFL. Yep, that’s over others like Adrian Peterson. It’s a strong statement, but there’s actually some merit to it.
McCoy rushed for a career-high 1,607 yards last season. If he pulls that off again, then maybe he is the best running back in the NFL. There are going to be others who think the same way about themselves, of course. Jamaal Charles is a good bet. The debate between McCoy, Peterson and Charles will likely continue for a long time to come, with no clear answer in sight–unless you ask those guys themselves. They’ll tell you who’s the best.
