LeSean McCoy and Porsha Williams dating?

Porsha Williams LeSean McCoy

Does LeSean McCoy have a new girlfriend? It looks like it.

Bossip reports that Shady McCoy has been dating Porsha Williams, who is Kordell Stewart’s ex-wife, “for quite some time now.”

Here’s what Bosisp says:

Porsha has been seen posting faded pictures of men and a variety of love quotes (then later deleting). But that hasn’t been enough to throw people off. Porsha and LeSean have been seen going on dates and kissing in the clubs all around Atlanta.

Porsha and Kordell were married in a 2011 wedding televised on the show “Platinum Weddings.” They divorced two years later, with Porsha complaining that she only found out about the divorce plans by reading about it online.

Porsha’s family supposedly is concerned about her being in another bad relationship because of the age difference between them; she is 33 while he is 25 years old. Porsha starred in “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” last year and is also filming season six of the show this year.

McCoy doesn’t exactly have the cleanest record with women, either. Last year he got in an ugly Twitter fight with his baby mama. He later apologized for the nasty fight.

LeSean McCoy reiterates that he is better than Adrian Peterson

LeSean McCoyMany people consider Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to be the best running back in the NFL and one of the most explosive runners of all time. The fact that he came back so strong after tearing his ACL has a lot to do with that, but LeSean McCoy doesn’t believe that makes him the best. Shady thinks the No. 1 spot belongs to him.

McCoy has said several times in the past that he is the league’s best back. When a reporter asked him again on Monday if he feels he is a superior player to AP, McCoy almost seemed annoyed.

“Yes, yes, yes,” he said after practice, per CSNPhilly.com’s Reuben Frank. “Especially the last three years. Check the numbers. You’re a numbers guy, check the numbers.”

McCoy made the same argument last month, placing an emphasis on the last three seasons.

“The last three years?” he said. “I’ve been All-Pro first-team twice. I never leave the field. I block. I catch. I never leave the field. I don’t have anybody do my job. I do it myself. Tons of credit goes out to Adrian Peterson. I’m a big fan of his, for sure. But I feel I’m the best.”

When Peterson was asked about McCoy’s comments, he said they made him laugh and he doesn’t even think McCoy believes what he was saying. McCoy insists he wasn’t joking at all.

“I don’t know if he’s joking or what,” McCoy said. “I don’t know how to take that. I play the game and it speaks for itself. I don’t know what that meant. I don’t understand what he was getting at.”

Here’s the argument McCoy can make against Peterson — yards from scrimmage. Peterson racked up “just” 1,437 total yards from scrimmage last season, whereas McCoy totaled 2,146. AP has never been much of a threat in the passing game. McCoy, on the other hand, has played in some pass happy offenses and has great hands.

That said, McCoy isn’t really doing Peterson any justice when he concentrates on the last three years. AP tore his ACL late in the 2011 season and still somehow managed to rush for over 2,000 yards the following year and come incredibly close to breaking Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record.

It’s impossible to compare backs in two completely different systems. I think we can all agree that any team in the NFL would love to have either Peterson or McCoy. Age not considered, you can probably flip a coin at this point.

LeSean McCoy: My 2-year-old son is better than Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow PatriotsYou can add Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy to the long list of current and former athletes who do not think very highly of Tim Tebow’s football ability. Tebow may have a great personality and know how to make a National Championship Game prediction, but very few are surprised that he is unemployed. McCoy certainly believes he should remain a free agent.

TMZ caught up with Shady at LAX over the weekend and asked him who he thought is the best NFL player who is not signed to a contract. The first example the reporter gave was Tebow.

“Tim Tebow?” McCoy said with a look of disgust. “My son is 2. I’ll take my son over Tim Tebow.”

McCoy went on to name former teammate Vince Young before settling on Chris Johnson, who was officially released by the Tennessee Titans just over a week ago.

Come on, man. Weren’t we supposed to stop dogging on Tebow after he made that hilarious Super Bowl commercial dogging on himself? Don’t kick a good Christian while he’s down.

H/T Shutdown Corner

LeSean McCoy says Darrelle Revis is better than Richard Sherman: ‘It’s not even close’

Darrelle-RevisRichard Sherman may have wrapped up his ongoing feud with Darrelle Revis, but the debate rages on. Analysts are still going to argue over which player is a superior cornerback. If you ask Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, he would tell you there is no debate.

McCoy was a guest on Mad Dog Sports Radio’s “Evan and Phillips in the Morning” on Thursday, and the NFL’s leading rusher for 2013 was asked which player in the league he would least want as a teammate. He said it was Sherman before breaking into an unprompted discussion about how Revis is a better player. Here’s the audio, courtesy of Bleacher Report:

“I would take Darrelle Revis,” McCoy said. “He’s a better player. If you watch Darrelle Revis’ tape and take his best clips (and match them up against Sherman’s), it’s not even close.”

While McCoy knows a lot more about football than I do, I believe the gap between Revis and Sherman is much closer than he is making it sound. However, McCoy made the same argument that we heard from Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor earlier this week — that Sherman doesn’t always match up against his opponent’s top receiver.

“(Revis is) a lockdown defender,” McCoy added. “He doesn’t have tons of safety help. It’s, ‘Revis, we need you to lock him up.’ And he’s gonna get it done.”

Sherman believes the stats show he is better than Revis, but he does have a tremendous amount of help with safeties Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas. McCoy also noted that he believes Revis will dominate again next year when he has another year of recovery from ACL surgery under his belt. Perhaps that will give us a better idea of who the better cornerback is overall.

LeSean McCoy gets WWE championship belt after winning rushing title

LeSean McCoy WWE belt

LeSean McCoy won the rushing title after rushing for 131 yards in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17 on Sunday, and he celebrated with a WWE championship belt.

McCoy had the shiny belt hanging on his shoulder as he conducted his postgame interview with NBC’s Michele Tafoya. Tafoya asked Shady what the belt was all about.

“It’s a joke, my financial advisor is from Texas and told me he was going to give me a rushing title belt if we won the game. So here it is,” McCoy explained.

McCoy finished with 1,607 rushing yards to become the first Eagles player since Steve Van Buren in 1949 to win a rushing title. But the real issue wasn’t him winning the rushing title, but the WWE belt he had on. Even LeBron James wanted one:

LeBron, you’ll probably have to talk to Vince McMahon about that. If not Vince, it looks like John Cena or The Rock are willing to help out.

LeSean McCoy wants Tony Romo to play

LeSean McCoyTony Romo is expected to miss the Dallas Cowboys’ season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday due to a herniated disk in his back, according to a report from ESPN. However, team owner Jerry Jones said on Monday evening that there is nothing structurally wrong with Romo’s back and that he could suit up if he feels up to it. That could simply be a smoke screen from Jones, but LeSean McCoy is hoping it’s the truth.

Rather than facing an ice-cold Kyle Orton in the most crucial game of the year, McCoy wants the Eagles to have a chance to earn a playoff spot by facing Romo. McCoy was stunned he was told Romo could miss the game.

“I don’t believe that. Are you for sure?” he asked on his weekly radio show on 94WIP, via The Philadelphia Daily News. “I would love to have Romo out there. You want your best. You want everybody playing in the showdown for the NFC East title. You wait this long and put everything into it? The hard training in the offseason, get the new coach … We’re finally here at the last game … You put all your chips on the table … We’re all in.”

I’m sure the Eagles wouldn’t mind facing Orton if it gives them a better chance to make the playoffs. McCoy said what you would expect one of the league’s best players to say, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. No matter how many times Romo has choked in clutch situations, the prospect of facing Orton in front of 100,000 Cowboys fans has to sound more appealing.

Bryce Brown on fantasy radar after LeSean McCoy leaves with apparent hamstring injury

LeSean McCoy

UPDATE: McCoy returned to the game in the second half, saying that his hamstring was “tight.” It will be worth monitoring to see if he injures it further.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy left Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins with an apparently hamstring injury. McCoy ripped off a long run in the second quarter before falling to the turf without being touched and immediately grabbing the back of his leg.

Should McCoy miss any time, Bryce Brown would become a must-add in fantasy football leagues. Brown has done very little this year since McCoy has been running so well. Savvy McCoy fantasy owners like have Brown on their bench as a handcuff, but now is the time to take advantage if he’s available.

Chip Kelly’s offense racks up yards and gets plenty of production from the running back position, so Brown would have immediate RB2 potential if McCoy is forced to miss next week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Obviously, Eagles fans are hoping McCoy’s injury is just a minor strain or cramp. McCoy was leading the NFL in rushing yards heading into Week 11 and was arguably Philadelphia’s best player on a week-to-week basis.
