NFC Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants



Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy remains in Green Bay, but has been able to do his job remotely. 

McCarthy says they’re still planning for a full training camp whether it ends up being in Oxnard or Frisco. 

We’ve really just hunkered down and tried to focus on the things we can control,” McCarthy said, via “And as a staff, we’re planning for a full training camp and we’re also planning for a training camp in Oxnard, we’re planning for a training camp in Frisco. We spent an enormous amount of time in the planning phase because it is our first camp together.

McCarthy has been working with OC Kellen Moore to determine how much of the playbook will be implemented at this point. 

“We just kind of flipped some things and the order of how we would normally do them,” McCarthy said. “It was more done with a focus on productivity, not just the detail but also get the volume of what we want to get done. Because our volume is obviously higher than a normal year because it’s our first year. That’s why we went with that approach.

According to McCarthy, this could be the most experienced team he’s had in the NFL, which could prove to be an advantage for them. 

“I am excited because this is probably going to be the most experienced team that I’ve coached, so we’ll rely on that,” McCarthy said. “I think if we were going to push to one side or the other, we’d definitely push on the side of the volume because of our veteran experience.”


Eagles OT Lane Johnson said he would like to see the organization re-sign RB LeSean McCoy

I want to see it,” Johnson said, via Mike Kaye of NJ Advance Media. “You already know how I feel.”

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson would also welcome the Eagles bringing McCoy back.

If we were going off how we feel, there would have been a lot of (expletive) we would have already been seeing, right?” Jackson said.

McCoy said recently that he would accept a role as a veteran leader toward helping develop a younger running back. 

If I could be that guy to help that young superstar to emerge into that superstar superstar, I would love to do that,” McCoy said.


New Giants QB Colt McCoy is excited to make an impact on another NFC East team this season, despite the fact that he will assume his normal role as a backup, this time behind QB Daniel Jones.

“Playing in the NFC East, you get a pretty good feel for players and coaches,” McCoy said, via“I just looked at it as an opportunity to play for a Giants team that has a new coach and a new system and a lot of guys that I’ve played against, but I don’t really know personally.”
