Lesean Mccoy: Sophomore Jinx?

John MatheosContributor IIJuly 10, 2010

With this years NFL season right around the corner, many of the young stars of the league entered into the pre-season training to get some fine tuning. One of the expected stars of the Philadelphia Eagles has shown tremendous progression this off-season.

Lesean Mccoy looked extremely sharp on his jukes, and looked pretty quick off the draw on some of the snaps that were given by Kevin Kolb.

The only question that remains for Lesean Mccoy is if he can brush off the sophmore superstition. Philadelphia fans are extremely aggressive if their players don't produce, especially after they lost Brian Westbrook.

Andy Reid is adjusting himself, by adding more running plays for this years season. Andy admitted that he believed that getting the ball in the air was his way of getting down the field quicker.

Coach Reid now sees the need for the running game to come back. With rookie quarterback Kolb coming into this years season as the starter, Andy Reid will have to add more running plays to alleviate the pressure off his young quarterback.

Lesean Mccoy had a good but not great rookie season. He looked nervous at times when he got into scrimmages with defensive players.

I believe that Lesean Mccoy will have a slow but progressive season. His numbers will increase from his rookie season, but don't expect to see pro-bowl numbers.

If he can hold onto the ball and not create turnovers, Lesean will be able to avoid the sophomore jinx that has affected a lot of rookies going into their second year of football.
