"He means a lot to me and a lot of other players," McCoy said. "We'll give each other a big hug, and then once the game starts, I know how coach Reid is. He's so focused. All in all, we always know it's always love and mutual respect between each other, but we have a job to do.
Other highlights from McCoy's "NFL Total Access" interview:
>> McCoy explained that Chip Kelly's offense will have "tons of different sets with different backs," necessitating a deeper backfield. "You run so much. So many different fast-paced movements from motioning out, from running routes," McCoy said. "It's so open, trying to get guys in the open field. It's a great offense. ... (But) you need some other backs to be productive because it's so much running."
