LeSean McCoy has never been one to shy away from saying things that make web producers load up their SEO headlines.

The Eagles running back during an appearance on Sirius XM at Super Bowl Radio Row in New York City, McCoy did it again.

On-air hosts Steve Phillips and Evan Cohen asked McCoy to name one player in the NFL that he would not want to have on his team.

McCoy paused for a second or so, then blurted out "Sherman."

He was speaking of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who will face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

McCoy kept going, though.

“I mean, I would take Darrelle Revis, he’s better,” McCoy said. “If you watch Darrelle Revis’ tape, and you take Sherman, it’s not even close.”
