At first glance, I was going to suggest adding this into the "Dream Team" and "Dynasty" list of the stupid crap Eagles have said about their Super Bowl chances in the recent years.
But at second glance, it only sort of fits there. Otherwise, it's what you'd expect any athlete to say -- they think they can win.
McCoy was on CNBC this week -- maybe instructing the audience not to financially plan like DeSean Jackson? -- and offered the following, per Eagledelphia:
"The time has come," McCoy said when prompted by Bloomberg's Stephanie Ruhle that Eagles fans are frustrated by not having a Lombardi trophy in their possession. "In the next five years, we should get a couple wins.
"We have the talent, we have the coach and the players all have the same goal and same dreams."
Although their defense was better -- really far better -- than anyone would have expected, the Eagles are no match on that side of the ball for the two teams playing in the NFC Championship game this weekend.
They certainly have the ability to score. Maybe a few more pieces on defense and they finally win the Super Bowl.
As far as winning "a couple," like Al Pacino once told Cameron Diaz, "just win one" before you start talking about knowing what it takes to actually do it -- especially twice.

Penn State is headed to the Rose Bowl Game, and it will cost a pretty penny to be on hand in Pasadena on January 2.
With a statement win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game Penn State clinched their first Rose Bowl berth since 2009. The No. 5 school in the nation will face No. 9 USC in a rematch from seven years ago. Such a long absence for both schools in the bowl game is driving resale ticket prices to new heights, so much so that the Rose Bowl Game will be the most expensive bowl game this season – including the two Semifinal games.
On TicketIQ, an event ticket search engine that pools tickets and data from over 90 percent of the secondary market, the average resale price for Rose Bowl Game tickets is now $804. Not only does that make it the most expensive Rose Bowl since at least 2010, but also the priciest bowl game of the last seven seasons. If looking just to get in on January 2 the cheapest tickets are now priced from $346 each.
The showdown between Penn State and USC is so expensive that it will be more than twice the average price of both Semifinal games. As it stands now the resale average for Peach Bowl tickets between Alabama and Washington at Georgia Dome is $389 with a get-in price of $185. Clemson and Ohio State will clash in the Fiesta Bowl to the tune of a $241 average and $71 get-in price.
Prices are so high for this year’s game in Pasadena that they rival the 2015 National Championship Game. The first-ever Championship Game under the new College Football Playoff system, that year’s game between Ohio State and Oregon averaged a $858 ticket and $317 get-in price.
While Penn State fans, students and alumni raced to snag tickets during the general on sale, prices were quick to skyrocket on the secondary market following the school’s invitation to the Rose Bowl Game. On Saturday afternoon, several hours before the Big Ten Championship kickoff, Rose Bowl tickets were averaging under $600, marking a nearly 40 percent increase since that time. The cheapest resale ticket price has jumped more than $100 since Saturday, climbing from its $245 price tag since.
