LeSean McCoy calls out Eric Bieniemy, questions the value former Chiefs OC will bring to commanders

LeSean McCoy may soon be dubbed “Shady” instead of “Shady” after his latest criticism, this time targeting his former offensive coordinator at Kansas City. The former Kansas City Chiefs running back commented on Eric Bieniemy and couldn’t hold back. McCoy was asked about Bieniemy becoming the offensive coordinator for the Washington Commanders and criticized what he brings to the table, saying Bieniemy’s success was thanks to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

“What is his value? What makes him a good offensive coordinator?” McCoy asked (via FS1). “The problem is that a lot of these people who go on social media, ‘He should be the guy for the job’, they haven’t played there. I’ve been in the rooms where he’s training and he has nothing to do with the passing game . When plays are projected, that’s Andy Reid.”

He doubled down, saying there is nothing that makes Bieniemy special.

“When you talk about offensive coordinators, I can tell you what makes Brian Daboll with the Giants a really good coordinator,” McCoy continued. “I can talk about Andy Reid or Doug Pederson. But Eric Bieniemy, what makes him good? When we watch the practice film and we correct the wide receivers, the running backs, the quarterbacks, he doesn’t talk there. Andy Reid talks there.”

While McCoy is critical and believes Reid is the reason for the Chiefs’ offensive success, he is rooting for Bieniemy to succeed in DC.

“I’m rooting for him because he’s a black coach and I love to see black coaches win,” McCoy said. “Plus, he’s a running backs coach, and running backs coaches never get the chance to be offensive coordinator. So I want him to do well, but if I have to do my job and be honest? ?”

Bieniemy is coming off a Super Bowl win, his second with the team. He will now join head coach Ron Rivera in Washington on a team that isn’t quite as complete as the Chiefs. The Commanders are coming off an 8-8-1 season in 2022, a 7-10 season in 2021 and 7-9 in 2020, where they made the playoffs but lost in the wild card round to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bieniemy will certainly have his work cut out for him without two-time league champion Patrick Mahomes running his offense. The Commanders enter the offseason with 2022 fifth-rounder Sam Howell as the projected starter.
