Quotable: Lesean McCoy thinks Eagles have enough talent to win ‘a couple’ Super Bowls

Jan 15, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT


At first glance, I was going to suggest adding this into the “Dream Team” and “Dynasty” list of the stupid crap Eagles have said about their Super Bowl chances in the recent years.

But at second glance, it only sort of fits there. Otherwise, it’s what you’d expect any athlete to say — they think they can win.

McCoy was on CNBC this week — maybe instructing the audience not to financially plan like DeSean Jackson? — and offered the following, per Eagledelphia:

“The time has come,” McCoy said when prompted by Bloomberg’s Stephanie Ruhle that Eagles fans are frustrated by not having a Lombardi trophy in their possession. “In the next five years, we should get a couple wins.

“We have the talent, we have the coach and the players all have the same goal and same dreams.”

Although their defense was better — really far better — than anyone would have expected, the Eagles are no match on that side of the ball for the two teams playing in the NFC Championship game this weekend.

They certainly have the ability to score. Maybe a few more pieces on defense and they finally win the Super Bowl.

As far as winning “a couple,” like Al Pacino once told Cameron Diaz, “just win one” before you start talking about knowing what it takes to actually do it — especially twice.

    A classic “Have you stopped beating your wife?” question.

    Which ever way you answer it you’re doomed.

    eerily reminiscent of another star Philly athlete quote coming up on its own 7 year anniversary. which weirdly enough has its own wikipedia page –

    why stop at a couple? maybe they will win 8 or 9 in a row. this idiot sports his IQ on his back.

      Geez…. Really? Way to lose your composure. Pretty sure he’s just being positive. Do we really think that any veteran Eagle player doesn’t think about that “dream team” comment, at least for a second, on interview day? No one wants to be that guy.

    By 2016 Kelly will have the SB Trophy on the Shelf at the Nova Care Center. In KC they will have Andy Almighty’s Head mounted on a sign outside a BBQ Buffet. With the Horns he’ll look like a Viking.

      A Viking?

      Sounds suspiciously like his next coaching location…
