It's confirmed. Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy thinks Knowshon Moreno of the Denver Broncos "sucks."

Brian McCardle of Philly.com wrote on Oct. 9 that McCoy "did not have any regrets" about the controversial tweet he wrote about Moreno. 

McCoy said,"I don't want to talk about the past. It is what it is. But what said is what I meant."

He tweeted "Knowshon sucks" on Oct. 7 in response to a previous tweet written by ESPN First Take's Skip Bayless, who wrote,"Peyton is doing what Peyton always does. But Knowshon is KILLING the Cowboys."

Moreno fired back with a tweet of his own, citing McCoy's Twitter handle, @CutonDime25. 

"Glad @CutonDime25 was watching our game tonight. Great team win, lets keep rolling. #5-0 #LetHatersHate #ShotsWereFiredButNoOneGotHit" 

McCardle notes Moreno and McCoy were both selected in the 2009 NFL Draft, with the former going 12th overall while the latter went 53rd. 

While McCoy doesn't think so highly of Moreno, he praised Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin. 

"I just wanted to say I think Doug Martin is a heck of a running back. He's one of the better running backs, for sure." 

The Eagles (2-3) and Buccaneers (0-4) square off in Week 6 of the 2013 NFL season.
