Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is 39 yards away from 10,000 career rushing yards, something only 29 other running backs in NFL history have accomplished.
At age 29, McCoy is looking better and better every game. He’s better than he was when he got to Buffalo, which for a running back at that age, is hard to do. He’s by far the greatest running back I’ve seen in my lifetime. Yes, I’m too young, I didn’t see Thurman or others.
McCoy takes care of his body better than most NFL players all year round. He’s so determined to capture many things.
To get to the playoffs.
To win a Super Bowl
15k chase (total yards.)
Obviously, it’s team first for Shady. But 12,000 rushing yards is rarefied air. Only 16 running backs in NFL history have 12,000 or more rushing yards.
I think McCoy will get there, I think by the end of his career, he will be top 10 all time in rushing. He still has a lot left in the tank. If he can stay healthy and continue to take care of himself, he has a long way to go.
The question is, will he be in a Bills uniform?
