LeSean McCoy Thinks Matt Barkley Is Named Mark

LeSean McCoy has been calling Matt Barkley “Mark.” Thought that was his name, until reporters corrected him. “He never said anything.”

Of course, “Mark” Barkley isn’t bad as far as Weirdly Unintentional Nicknames go, but McCoy can surely do better.

“Really, though, we need stability at the QB position. Of course, that leads us back to one man and one man in particular. Y’all know exactly who I’m talking about, so it seems superfluous to say his name aloud, but that would be ol’ Bort McSlinkyLegs.”

“Good luck, Mark.”
