McCoy Surpasses Duce Staley

Posted Nov 19, 2013

Not only did running back LeSean McCoy become the first NFL player to gain 1,000 rushing yards in 2013, he also one-upped his position coach Duce Staley.

McCoy leaped over Staley to become No. 3 on the franchise's all-time rushing list with 4,875 career yards. McCoy reached the plateau in just his 69th career regular season game. McCoy didn't know that he cracked the 1,000-yard mark for the third time in his career, but he was well aware of where he stood in comparison to Staley.

"I did know this though, I had 10 yards to pass Duce," McCoy said. "So I knew that was going to happen.”

Next up on the leaderboard is Hall of Fame running back Steve Van Buren, who has 5,860 yards. At McCoy's pace, he could slide past "Wham Bam" early in 2014. Wilbert Montgomery holds the mantle of the franchise's all-time leading rusher with 6,538 yards.
