Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has had two bad games in a row, and Reuben Frank at CSNPhilly.com wants to know why. In his last two games McCoy has a combined 75 rushing yards, averaging a meager 2.5 yards per carry. The Eagles have, incidentally, lost both of those games.
As Frank points out, McCoy had a good start to his season.
It's not that he suddenly just [became] an average running back. There's just nothing there for him.
He suggests that the banged up offensive line has made life difficult for McCoy. Frank also devotes a good portion of the article to explain just how unprecedented this is for the Eagles:
The Eagles have never run the ball a ton, but when they have, they've been good at it. From 1999 through last year, the Eagles averaged 4.9 yards per carry - by far the highest in the league. That does include quarterback rushes, which skew the numbers a bit.
