Let’s start this one with a couple of controversial statements. It was difficult to put LeSean McCoy on this list over Lamar Miller, another of the Texans running backs from a season ago. It just feels Miller is more deserving based on the fact that he’s younger and may have a few more productive years left in him. That bases everything on the theory that Miller has healed from last year’s injury.
It feels like Philly’s all-time leading rusher, McCoy, is a shell of what he used to be. It’s also hard to determine how any of us should feel about Andy Reid‘s decision to deactivate him in the Super Bowl. Keep in mind he did so despite the fact that McCoy could go and was relatively healthy.
If “Big Red” gives up on you, it’s pretty much over right? Then again, Miller tore his ACL and MCL prior to the 2019 season, and it never really felt like Houston liked him as a real option.
Verdict: LeSean McCoy is on this list based squarely on the fact that so many people have said that they’d welcome the possibility of him returning in a limited role, but when it’s all said and done, Hyde is a better option than both him and Miller.
