Last week, LeSean McCoy took a shot at Giants defensive lineman Osi Umenyiora, tweeting that Osi was "overrated n soft" and that he was the "3rd best d-line[man]" on New York's roster.

Naturally, this went over really well with Osi, who fired back at McCoy calling him a girl, a "Twitter gangster" and "Chihuahua.".

After that, the feud seemed to simmer a bit. Fortunately, Justin Tuck decided to ramp it back up today.

“Well, two things, yes we will take that personally,” Tuck said to ESPN's Mike and Mike on Wednesday. “And two, he might want to watch some film before he starts talking about a defensive end of Osi’s quality. I don’t know where he would say something of that nature. Obviously Osi’s stats back up the fact that he is a pretty good NFL football player.”

The good news is that such back-and-forth can only lead to more on-field hatred between the Eagles and the Giants. (This is good as long as it doesn't lead to any actual, illegal violence -- rivalries are always beneficial for the game of football.)

The bad news is that Osi's apparently going to hold out once the lockout ends until he gets a new contract, which probably won't give him a whole lot of street cred.

And, considering he's a named plaintiff on the players' antitrust suit, such a dispute isn't necessarily going to just disappear amicably. Fortunately, though, Tuck had some more words for McCoy himself.

"I honestly think social media has made people cowards,” Tuck said. “Where I’m from, if you had a problem with somebody, you said it to their face. I think now people are hiding behind computers and smart phones to get out something they got on their chest where I’m used to having a problem with a person, you go tell it to their face. You don’t go blast it out so everybody in the world can see about it."

So, hey, there's always a shot he and McCoy can just duel it out when the two teams go head-to-head next year.

Tuck: Giants will take McCoy tweets 'personally'

She will get spanked and cry like a little girl in front of 82,500 Giants fans and on national TV. Don't forget to bring your tampons, honey - you're gonna bleed a little.

(Nothing like collecting bulletin board material in the offseason to motivate yourself in the weight room, JT.)
Just make sure you don't kick it to DeSean Jackson...

Yet, another reason to dislike the Birds. I'm from Philly and the Eagles are the only Philly team i've always hated. They have that ability to find players that make me wanna puke, like Desean, Vick and now add Mcoy to that list. Actually accomplish something Shady before you yap about other players. For all you non-Phily people, here's how every season in recent Eagles memory goes without fail.

Birds start out hot, fans chant Super Bowl......Mid season, they have a losing streak, fans call for benchings and firings.....End of regular season they get hot again and make the playoffs, fans chant Bowl......They choke in the playoffs fans call for Reids head.......It cracks me up how this happens and the fans won't realize they just don't have enough horses to get it done and this management seeems to not want to go the extra mile.

And i'm a  Dolphins fan, so don't be thinkin I'm a front runner or something. lol

Has McCoy really gotten into the Giants' heads this much?  Are they really going to alter their game plan for him? 

This is a whole bunch of nothing.  It's the kind of story that gets written when there's no real football news to write about.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........
