Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has heard the comparisons between himself and Barry Sanders. But McCoy doesn’t particularly agree with those comparisons.

McCoy says it’s flattering that his elusive running style is sometimes compared to the former Lion and Hall of Famer, but McCoy also acknowledges that his own body of work is nowhere close to what Sanders accomplished in the NFL.

“I don’t really see it as a comparison,” McCoy said, via Philly.com. “I think Barry is probably the best running back to ever play this game. They compare us probably because of the cutbacks, but there is still a big gap between us two.”

McCoy is right: Although McCoy makes some great highlight-reel runs, there’s really no one like Sanders. And McCoy hasn’t been anywhere near the workhorse back that Sanders was. Sanders led the league in rushing four times, was second in the NFL in rushing three times, was third once, fourth once and fifth once. McCoy, who is currently second in the league in rushing, has never led the league and has only been in the Top 10 once before.

So while McCoy is a very good running back, he hasn’t earned the comparisons to Sanders. It’s classy of him to acknowledge that.

So Zero what's the word on Barry II?

Was he a Sophomore or Junior this year?

Will he be available in the 2014 or 2015 draft?

There is no Barry II. He is not a Jr either. Father and Son have different middle names. Know your Barry's!!!

Watch and be awed
