McCoy was at the top of his game Wednesday when asked about Philadelphia quarterbacks Michael Vick and Nick Foles. Vick has a hamstring injury and his status for Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay is unclear.
“I hope Mike Vick hears this,’’ McCoy said in a playful tone. “He’s done this to me the past two years. He gets hurt the week before I finally get to play against a guy I’ve been wanting to play against since I was a kid. So, Vick, if you hear this, I don’t like it. Not because I don’t like you, but because you get hurt the week before I finally get to play against you. You’re a great competitor and I would love to compete against you. But since you don’t want to play, I’ll talk about Nick Foles.’’
McCoy then went on to talk about Foles in a more serious manner.
“He is an underrated passer and an underrated athlete,’’ McCoy said. “He beat us a lot last year with his legs and scrambling ability. I think people underestimate his athletic ability because he plays next to a Mike Vick. But that guy is good. He beat us last year, so we know what he can do and we have a tough test ahead of us.’’
