07:04 AM ET 06.24 | It seems just about everyone in Philly has a take on who should start under center in 2013 -- but not LeSean McCoy. [McCoy] is sitting out of the Eagles' quarterback debate, declining to weigh in on who should win the starting quarterback spot and when a starter should be named. He's focusing instead on his touches. "That's why they pay Chip Kelly the big bucks, to pick the quarterback," McCoy said. "Whoever he picks, I'm fine with. As long as I get my carries, I don't care who they pick." McCoy spoke before his second annual charity softball game. It benefits the LeSean McCoy Foundation, which raises funds to battle ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). His grandmother died from the effects of ALS in 2010.

"I don't care, as long as I get my carries..."

Sounds about right.

Chip Kelly better have a great start because Philly fans don't have the patience.

To paraphrase one Keyshawn Johnson..."Just give me the Damn ball!"

What a team player.

Crazy is to think you can win and the QB won't matter. Maybe he's resigned to the fact that they are going to lose.

Or perhaps he's just tired of being asked questions about the QB.

He doesn't care? Imagine how much I don't care either.

I still think they're going to tank the season to go after Johnny Football.

Whether they do it intentionally or not, I think you're right.

Johnny F's style would give the Iggs 1 good season before he was in surgery ala RGIII.

Mostly he does not care because he recently signed a 6 year $45 million deal with $20 million guaranteed.

Why would he care, any of them should be able to execute a hand off. Now, go ask the receivers who they want.

Sounds familiar... I love me some me..

Go Matt Barkley!
