Game Vs. 49ers: RB LeSean McCoy

On how much pain he was in today: "I was in a little bit of pain, not too much. You have to put that stuff behind in a game like this, when we need a big win, an away game. All the guys, preparing the whole week, a lot of guys are banged up. It shows the type of heart they have and me, I don't want to let them down, so I came out and prepared myself to play."

On what he had to do to get on the field: "A lot of treatment, in the training room. In the early mornings, when you have to get up and get treatment and also, the biggest thing is I was a little fatigued today, from not really practicing, but it kind of breaks my feel up the whole week, riding a bike and stuff like that because in a game like this, it came down to the wire and I had to play the whole game."

On what he had to say to RB Brian Westbrook before the game:"It was weird because I'm so used to him coaching me up. From a distance, him being out here, texting me and stuff like that and then being in his presence when he was out here in Philadelphia coaching me up and he didn't say anything about football. He was just saying how happy he was to see me and stuff like that. I almost came to tears seeing him. So far, I've been playing okay and I'd think about all the times he taught me things and I look back and that's what I just want to thank him so much."
