The Question:

Asked of my Eagles writers and fans: Who will be Remembered as the better Eagles running back: Brian Westbrook or LeSean McCoy?

 

The Answers:

Me:

It will be very close.

I think McCoy will be viewed as the better running back because he has avoided injury (so far), something Westbrook could never do. He is younger now than Westbrook was when he entered the NFL, and he is already a borderline Pro Bowl running back.

I think he'll turn in seven or eight very good seasons, with about two Pro Bowl selections.

Luther Broughton, Former Philadelphia Eagles Tight End, 1999-2000:

Come on—Shady needs to have a few more years before we can start this conversation.

As spectators we forget too quickly.

Westbrook was special. McCoy has a chance to be good but we know some guys flame out. Let's hope he doesn't but let's not put him in Westbrook's category yet.

That would be disrespectful based on Westbrook's years of stellar play.
