Once again Premier NFL analyst Brian Baldinger has declared a bright future for one of the young Philadelphia Eagles.

After analysing the season, Baldinger says that LeSean McCoy is already better than Eagle favorite Brian Westbrook.

That’s strong praise for the second-year back out of the University of Pittsburgh. Baldinger went of to state that McCoy’s ability to catch the ball may be comparable to Westbrook’s, but couple that with Shady’s dynamic ability to hit the home run consistently running the football is what gives LeSean the advantage.

Look for the Eagles to look to get No. 25 involved early in this weekend’s showdown with the Green Bay Packers.

In the games that the Birds have looked indefensible, McCoy has had a huge contribution. When the coaching staff remembers how valuable Shady is and feeds him the ball, it puts opposing defenses in a tough situation.

Forced with having to defend the deep part of the field because of the Eagles speedster receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, it often allows McCoy to find seams in teams’ shallow defensive coverage.

Andy, get Shady the ball please!
