McCoy says he’s been told he’s “the guy” in 2019, discusses trade rumors

Recommended Posts

Obviously they're not going to tell him that he's trade bait if that's what they're planning, so what he's been told is irrelevant. With that said, I have no doubt that he WILL be the guy this year.

Hope he can hit the hole rather then dance  for no gain

Maybe this revamped offensive line can give him some holes to run through 🤷‍♂️

The Bills invested a lot of money in the New OL. I see no excuses this year.

I was 1 minute late to state the obvious! Yolo on the spot once again!

Well, I AM disappointed about the man who keeps bumping his noggin. That was the critical piece, and admittedly a gamble. Praying for the best!

McCoy: If they wanted to trade me they would have traded me by now. Two teams wanted me.

 

He's no Gregg Williams.

If McCoy has any semblance of a line to work with this year, he will be just fine.  He's the type of back that really gets the most out of good run blocking at the point of attack.  He's better in space than between the tackles, so if his line can do the basics he will have another 4-5 YPC year, even though I too expect some reduced amount of touches.

I disagree with your first part.  I think the Bills FO has probably been pretty straight forward with McCoy.

 

I think they discussed potential trading partners last year and probably again this year, but they see value in McCoy above what they can get in trade.

This again?  What is with "the guy" that he has to keep reassuring himself that he's the same ol' Shady in public utterings?

 

The best part is that "he told the Bills website" that the Bills told him that he's the guy this year.  LOLOL  WTF is that?

He'd beat the odds if he does return to form as he looked like a shell of himself last year.  Obviously the Bills brass feels differently.  It would be interesting to see the offers Beane turned down if he was trying to trade him last year.

McCoy will be the guy week 1.  After that?  Who is running the best?  Gore will be a guy that will make the most of ever carry.  The dark horse is Singletary.  If he get some big runs McCoy will be in alot of trouble if he has slowed down even slightly.

I feel differently, too.

What I saw was an offensive line that opened absolutely NO holes for Shady. I then saw McCoy try to press and overcompensate by always trying to make something out of nothing. Admittedly, that part's on him. Still, I'd put it at 90% o-line being awful and 10% Shady not hitting the few holes that WERE there with authority.

Like others have said, there are NO excuses this year. If he's anything other than a top end starter, you get rid of him for whatever you can, because Singletary is the feature back of the future, and Gore/Yeldon would be perfectly adequate backups/mentors for the youngster.

His agent might well know what teams have inquired about him.

I don't see McCoy getting cut, but I still have a hunch he could be traded before the regular season if the right deal is out there and Singletary looks like a stud in preseason (which I'm expecting).

 

Best case is that we could package him in a deal to Houston for Clowney so we don't have to give up a first round pick. Could definitely see Beane pulling the trigger on a deal like that.

That wouldn't be a very High Football IQ move for Houston...
