Lesean McCoy: Two-year old son better than Tim Tebow

Jim McIsaac

Gotta love former Pitt star Lesean McCoy. He's made a seamless transition to the NFL and is one of the league's top running backs, and still provides some entertaining content in the meantime.

Whether it's getting wrapped up in Twitter battles with Osi Umenyiora, starring alongside Larry Fitzgerald and Darrelle Revis in a Nike commercial, calling out Riley Cooper after his offseason 'incident', or downplaying the ability of Richard Sherman in comparison with Revis, Shady just gets around.

Guess who's back (see what I did there)?

McCoy, the NFL's leading rusher last season, jumped back into the news today ... and of course TMZ was involved. I mean, of course they were. Catching up with Shady at an airport, a reporter asked him who the most talented player was that's not currently on an NFL roster. The lulz began when the cameraman suggested former Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow as a possibility.

To the footage:

While McCoy thought about his response, the cameraman offered Tim Tebow’s name. Without breaking stride, McCoy rolled his eyes, then said:

"My son is two, I’ll take my son over Tim Tebow."

Yeah, that ended pretty much the way I thought it would.
