THERE IS never an absence of drama with LeSean McCoy. Whether it is stealing a Redskins fan's banner before the game or breaking Redskins defenders' ankles during the game, excitement seems to follow the fifth-year running back. He added another accolade to his list yesterday afternoon as he became the first player in the NFL to surpass the 1,000-yard rushing mark. But McCoy didn't care about holding the title as the league's most proficient rusher. He says he did not know that he had eclipsed the millennium mark until after it happened.

OTTAWA - For the first time in 18 months, since they knocked off the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2012 playoffs, there was a buzz in the Flyers' locker room last night. Mac Miller's "Knock, Knock" tune, the anthem of the last Flyers team with any swagger, was blaring in the locker room - because, well, Craig Anderson let 'em in. The Flyers are finding out just how easy it is to win when their top scoring lines produce. Relieved after Claude Giroux' first goal of the season on Saturday, the once-mystifying Flyers offense toppled Ottawa, 5-0, for their second straight win. Not surprisingly, the Flyers are 51-6-4 since 2010 when Giroux scores multiple points.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - On Fox's pregame show Sunday, Richie Incognito was emoting and atoning to America, describing a Miami Dolphins locker room culture in which he was - according to one published report - an "honorary black man. " As such, he could get away with using a racial epithet when talking to his teammates, and this admission had ignited a national discussion about race and language, about who we are and how we act and what we can say. And...

So it seems some players have come down in favor of the environment that drove Jonathan Martin out of the NFL, perhaps because they have spent their lives marinating in sports culture (or maybe because they are grown men who play games for a living). Many who have spent time around athletes, say in school (which would be, oh, everybody), aren't surprised. Even former players are getting their licks in. Former New York Giants star Michael Strahan, on the Fox pregame, said he missed the locker room and the treatment Martin had to face in Miami.

THE BUZZER sounded and the Flyers shuffled off the ice. After Jaromir Jagr willed his way to an empty-net goal, most of the thousand or so fans remaining in the Wells Fargo Center who didn't boo the Flyers' 3-0 loss to New Jersey just sat there. Their eyes had glazed over by that point. After all 20 players were accounted for, the doors to the Flyers' locker room shut. And stayed shut. A 10-minute, players-only meeting ensued. Craig Berube was not present. General manager Paul Holmgren, who already addressed the team during an intermission last week, did not participate.

In the dim, narrow hallway outside the visiting locker room in Oakland, Riley Cooper leaned against the cinder-block wall and tried to explain his three-touchdown day against the Raiders. Equipment carts rumbled out of the locker room toward the waiting bus and Cooper had to sidestep down the hall to allow them to pass. "I feel like I'm in the way here," he said. For much of this season, Cooper might have had the same feeling on the field, and somewhat earlier, he might have had it in the locker room as well.

MALVERN SENIOR fullback Hunter Paulus is responsible for ensuring that defenders don't hit his starting running back Troy Gallen. He has never felt better about not being needed. Gallen, a senior who is committed to Delaware, rushed for 372 yards and five touchdowns as Malvern dominated Inter-Ac power Episcopal, 49-21, Friday night. After Gallen sprang for a 40-yarder to make it 35-14 with 4:46 left in the third, Paulus came to the sideline and delivered the line of the night.

Midfielder Brian Carroll isn't very flashy and doesn't say too much, but he carries as much respect as any player in the Union's locker room. On Saturday, in the place where it all started for Carroll, he will reach a milestone by competing in his 300th regular-season Major League Soccer game when the Union travel to Washington's RFK Stadium to face D.C. United. The 32-year-old Carroll, who began his career with United, rarely shows emotion - but he admits this won't be an ordinary game.

TORONTO - With less than a minute remaining in a tied, meaningless exhibition game, one Flyer flew into the offensive zone and laid a hit on an unsuspecting Toronto defenseman. He stole the puck and tried to create a scoring chance as if it were Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final. Rudy Ruettiger would have been proud. Except, unlike Rudy, this player was not a longshot doing everything he could to catch the coach's eye. It was Max Talbot. "I was excited tonight like it was a regular-season game," said Talbot, who played in his first NHL game since March 31. "I think I was a little rusty in the first period, but after that, I thought I was a little better.

In the offseason, the Flyers landed the NHL's marquee free agent (hello, Vinny Lecavalier), bolstered their goaltending by signing Ray Emery, and improved their transition game by adding puck-moving defenseman Mark Streit. Those three players are the focal point of the New Flyers, who open training camp Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Old Flyers didn't have the depth to overcome injuries last year, lost a majority of board battles, and never got into a rhythm as they missed the playoffs for just the second time in the last 18 seasons.
