"I like Nick. The person and player that everybody thought he was, he is. There were a lot of injuries this year, Nick, obviously got injured. He gets all of the blame and he shouldn't," McCoy said. "I think Nick's a good quarterback. He's the leader of our team. Things just didn't work out for him this year due to injury, but we've got his back. As a team, we didn't play well enough to win and get into the playoffs."
Foles took a bit of a step back in 2014 before his season was cut short due to a broken collarbone on Nov. 2. He threw for 2,163 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games before the injury.
Both of McCoy's best statistical seasons have come under Kelly. He rushed for 1,319 yards in 2014, the second-highest total of his career. McCoy is the only running back in Eagles history with three seasons of at least 1,300 rushing yards. He is under contract through 2017 and is set to make $9.75 million next season.
"The season just ended, and ... I'm an Eagle. I love it here," McCoy said following Sunday's win over the Giants, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "My six years here have been excellent. I've been very, very, very productive here. I have a great relationship with my coaches, the owner.
"We'll see what happens. It's a business. Anything can happen; I know that. But I'm sure we can work something out. And hopefully, everything does work out. They know how I feel about them. I know how they feel about me. So we'll see what happens. At the end of the day, it's a business."
LeSean McCoy says he's 'fine,' wanted to go back in game

(12/28/14) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who hurt his left knee late in the win over the Giants, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he's "fine" and wanted to go back in the game. McCoy rushed 17 times for 99 yards, just missing his fifth 100-yard game of the year.
No one benefitted more from Chip Kelly’s offense than LeSean McCoy in 2013. He was the focal point of the up-tempo attack with 314 carries for 1,607 yards and nine touchdowns and 52 catches for 539 yards and two touchdowns. McCoy just escaped the dreaded 400-touch threshold with 391, including the playoffs, but don’t be surprised if the Eagles ease his workload a little bit. It should come on passing downs with the offseason addition of Darren Sproles. We still expect McCoy to approach 2,000 total yards and double digits in touchdowns, and he can still get 40-plus catches even with Sproles in the mix. McCoy is the easy selection at No. 2 overall behind Jamaal Charles in the majority of leagues. Kelly wants to run the ball, and McCoy is his thoroughbred. Look for him to continue to dominate this season.
