This LeSean McCoy-Osi Umenyiora feud has gotten really nasty in a very short period of time.

We already told you about how the feud began (Umenyiora, in a sworn affidavit to be filed next month, explains how he feels he got screwed by Giants GM Jerry Reese, McCoy responded by calling him soft and overrated, and Umenyiora responded to THAT by calling McCoy a “she”).

But Umenyiora still apparently was upset by the slight made by the Eagles RB. In part, it’s because McCoy has had a fair bit of success vs. the Giants, but also because this isn’t the first time the two have had words with each other.

"I mean, he’s a girl, man. Who does stuff like that?" Umenyiora told the Newark Star Ledger. "If he has more of these things to say, he can say ‘em to my face. Don’t be no Twitter gangster, man.

“I hate him, he hates me, period.”

I can understand why McCoy would feel like he’s got the best of Umenyiora, because McCoy rushed for 175 yards on 24 carries in two games last year vs. New York, but I can’t figure out why McCoy would drag himself into this potential court case. Unless he truly IS a Twitter gangster.

“I feel things like that stay on the football field,” Umenyiora said. “Off the field, we respect each other because at the end of the day we’re all brothers. But he decided to take it so far that there’s no going back from it now."

Or you could take the attitude of Giants WR Steve Smith, who’s scheduled to be a free agent. You could just post the picture that you see below, and that should end any conversation with McCoy.

By the way, before I go back to sleep, what does that photo have to do with McCoy?  What year was it taken?  If I'm not mistaken, he hadn't even joined the Eagles yet.  So I'm guessing that since the time he did, these two guys have won the same number of Super Bowl titles--but not the same number of games against each other.  I wonder who's done better in that category?  I'll have to look that up, unless someone wants to tell me.  On the other hand, to heck with it.  Zzzzzzzzzzzzz. . .

Oh, for goodness sake, let it go, guys.  What, is Umenyiora afraid someone will actually believe what McCoy said?  And if not, then what's the problem now?
Big, big deal . . .I guess this is the kind of stuff that makes headlines when the football writers have no real news to report.   Zzzzzzzzzz. . .

McCoy... Think about this. If you ever get in a fight who will win? Osi or McCoy? Osi can beat McCoy to the ground and what could McCoy do? Run? What were you thinking????

McCoy just needs to shut his hole. He should be backing a fellow player ( league, not team, before anyone goes and corrects me.) I mean yes it's the players against the owners and truthfully they ALL are getting greedy. If the owners aren't making money then why are they building these state of the art fields ? ( That they don't have to pay full price for ) All they have to do is field a competitive team and people will come.
