LeSean McCoy rips Chiefs’ Eric Bieniemy after Patrick Mahomes spat

A quick, televised argument between Patrick Mahomes and Eric Bieniemy was all of the room LeSean McCoy wanted to pounce on a coach he doesn’t seem to love.

McCoy, who performed with the Chiefs for 13 video games in 2019, watched Mahomes, the crew’s star quarterback, and Bieniemy, the offensive coordinator, alternate phrases and gestures at halftime throughout a loss to the Colts in Indianapolis. Mahomes had needed to be extra aggressive earlier than the break, whereas Bieniemy known as for a second-and-20 run that ran out the clock.

While followers tried to learn lips and hand motions, McCoy directed his ire towards the Chiefs coach as a substitute.

“All bieniemy does is argue wit the players .. KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT passing or PLAY CALLING,” McCoy commented below B/R Gridiron’s video of the dispute.

McCoy didn’t star in his one season with the Kansas City offense, operating for 4 touchdowns and 465 yards as a change-of-pace again, and was made inactive all through a lot of the playoffs. The former Eagles and Bills star was 31 years previous and one year away from retirement.

He has spoken out in opposition to Bieniemy — the extremely regarded coordinator who can’t land a head-coaching job — on just a few events.

“There’s a reason why every year they keep hyping him up to get a head coaching job, or an offensive coordinator job somewhere else, and he don’t get one,” McCoy advised SiriusXM’s “I am Athlete Tonight” in May.

“He talks to players a certain way, and some players would take it. I wouldn’t take it. There’s some questions I’m gonna ask. Everyone’s accountable. It’s not because he’s a black coach [that he’s not getting hired]. That’s not the reason.”

McCoy added that “no one hires him because they know what type of coach he really is.”

Bieniemy has been a largely profitable coach, although, one who argued with Mahomes earlier than a fourth-quarter letdown that allowed the Colts to win, 20-17.

After the sport, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid — who had calmly whisked Mahomes away from Bieniemy in the course of the alternate — advised reporters it “wasn’t a confrontation at all. That’s not what it was.”
