07:47 PM ET 09.30 | For opposing teams, there is nothing fun about playing in Denver. It doesn't matter if you're playing the Rockies, Nuggets or Broncos, you feel the rarefied air. It's something Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy got a taste of Sunday afternoon in the Eagles' blowout loss to the Denver Broncos, where he was seen leaving the field multiple times and now we know why - he couldn't breathe.

It's hard to breathe when your lips are always moving ...

Actually that would make it easier than keeping your mouth closed.

Let's not confuse the issue with facts.

My bad for committing the cardinal sin of FN.

Since week 1 Chip's offense has looked ineffective and his defense gave PM an opportunity to set an all time single game scoring record for the DB's.

Chip has some work to do.

Weeks 2 & 3 were played on short weeks.

And Week 4 was played in Denver against the hottest team in the league.

It's part Chip Kelly and part brutal schedule.

The next five weeks which include - the Giants twice, the Cowboys, Buccaneers and Raiders - should be much more telling.

If Chip can't muster out a few wins against those teams then his NFL career is dead in the water.

And I'm surprised it took NFL analysts this long to figure out that McCoy was having breathing issues in Denver.

Every time they showed him on the sidelines he was holding an oxygen mask to his face.

Meanwhile Joe Buck is rambling on in complete bewilderment acting like it's impossible to add 1 + 1.

I think it's harder breathing in Philadelphia. The city smells like a sewage treatment plant.

What was the rest of the team's excuse?

Well when they run you 27 times in a row that will do it. Maybe it was all the legal weed they can now smoke.

Nope.

This is what happens as a result of holding your breath too long.
