the first fight and argument happened. there will be a lot made out of this little squirm itch with linebacker sean mccoy. understand there is almost no hitting in camp and almost no touching. it's what football camps have become in the nfl because there's just no contact allowed. so when trent cole was a little too handy, it was short and the players were pulled apart and the next play. at least one happens every training camp. >> gorks two friends, the whole camp so far has been touching a little bit too much. i tried to let him know it's okay if he can't cover me. we just batting, that's all. we'll go in the locker room area and talk it out, joke it out. so it was nothing. > that's because you're so cute. sean mccoy, that's why they touch you, and trent cole over it. i think we all know outside of quarterback sean mccoy is the
focus of this offense. we all wonder what he can do to top last year when he led the league in rushing. they say he's not done yet. >> keep writing the philadelphia eagles history book. i think that's what he should -- strife to do. i think he's on the bay to do that. i think he's the best running back in the nfl. the things he does with the ball, not many people can do that. > sean mccoy is the best running back in the nfl when you look at what he has done, i agree that he is the best. one different that is different this training camp that there are many of the marque names not in the camp. no michael vic, no desean jackson. does that make a difference? >> it's definitely different. just the different personalities, the limelight a little bit, that a guy michael vic has kind of changed the game, the way he plays the game.
