Ex-Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy Predicts That Eric Bieniemy Will Fail As Commanders Offensive Coordinator

Former Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy predicts that Eric Bieniemy will not have success as the offensive coordinator and assistant head coach with the Washington Comamanders.

McCoy, who spent the 2019 season in Kansas City, is now a co-host on FS1’s Speak shared some insight on what Bieniemy did with Chiefs.

“I hope he doesn’t (fail), but I think he will,” McCoy said. “What’s his value? What makes him a good offensive coordinator? See the problem is, a lot of these people who go on social media, ‘Oh, he should be the guy for the job.’ They haven’t played there, they’re not in the locker room. They’ve not been in the rooms where he’s coaching. He has nothing to do with the passing game at all. The plays are designed, that’s Andy Reid. When you’re talking about offensive coordinators, I can tell you what makes Brian Daboll with the Giants a very good (head coach). I can tell you what Andy Reid or Doug Pederson, but when I ask about Eric Bieniemy, what makes him good?

“When we watch the film of practices and we correct the WRs, the RBs, the QBs, he doesn’t talk in there, Andy Reid talks in there. He may say things to the running backs because he’s an ex-running backs coach. I get that. But he has no real responsibility. Now you go from the Chiefs where you can hide behind Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid. Now, you can go to Washington where you’ve got to call plays, you’ve got to run the meetings, you’ve got to run the installs.”
