LeSean McCoy was giving his teammates false updates on the Cowboys game while he was on the team flight home. The Philadelphia Eagles were beat by the Minnesota Vikings earlier in the day and the team probably was a little down from the loss. They had to check in on the Cowboys status during the game to see how their playoff chances were looking and McCoy decided to have a little fun with his teammates:
“Because nobody knew except for me, so whatever I said they had to believe,” McCoy told Anthony Gargano and Ike Reese of 94WIP on Monday night. “I was just joking with some of the players. When I was talking to Chip [Kelly] and Howie [Roseman], I was serious.”
Maybe he wasn’t even having fun with his teammates and he thought that they really did win. I know that I saw the score at the half and thought that game was over. I was giving my buddy updates on the score and pretty much called it done at the half, then I came back and noticed that they blew it.
