Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and McCoy both had some interesting comments about the events that led to Reid’s firing and what needs to happen moving forward. “I could see where some of the new guys didn’t buy into it anymore,” he said via 97.5 The Fanatic’s Matt Lombardo. “I think we’re a talented group. Team unity wasn’t there this year. We have to respect each other. [A] Lack of respect effected the guys and that makes you less inclined to play for each other.”
He continued by questioning the team’s overall professionalism.
“Guys who have been in this league and should understand how to be a pro didn’t act that way.”
Meanwhile, McCoy, an All-Pro in 2011, was also critical of his teammates.
“Certain guys with big money contracts didn’t lay it on the line,” he said.
