The backs, LeSean McCoy, Ronnie Brown, and Dion Lewis ran for 94 yards on 15 carries (6.2 YPA).
While McCoy only ran for 12 yards, his pass catching abilities are invaluable to the team. He had seven receptions for 69 yards and was keen on getting open when Vick was running for his life. I wouldn't be surprised if McCoy once again led the Eagles in receptions next year, as Vick loves the checkdown when all else fails.
McCoy struggled a bit on his inside runs, but that was more of the fault of the offensive line still not being in touch early on and creating holes.
Ronnie Brown was the only position player who scored a touchdown tonight, which came on a nice 13 yard run. For the game, Brown had 9 touches and 56 total yards, 41 yards through the ground.
I think any critics of the move can be silenced. The Eagles got a bargain for a tough runner who can also be a goal line back or even be the lead back if needed.
The 230 pound Brown showed he still has cutting ability and enough speed to make the defense respect him.
Dion Lewis continues his stellar preseason. His jukes and cuts seem almost as good as McCoy's and he will only continue to improve. With above average speed, Lewis will be a change of pace back.
