“He didn’t really mean it,” Peterson said, per ESPN.com. “If you watched his response, [he didn’t mean it].”
Peterson doesn’t blame McCoy for the confidence he has in himself.
“I’ve got to give the young guy credit because there is nothing wrong having confidence in yourself,” Peterson said Tuesday. “But you’ve got to speak with more truth. He’s a heck of a running back and I like his style, so I won’t get on him too much.”
“It was funny because when Stephen A. [Smith] asked him the question, he kind of hesitated, and he didn’t believe it when he said it,” Peterson said. “I tell the youngsters, ‘Say it with your chest, like you mean it!'”
