McCoy, Umenyiora

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

You’ll recall last June when Osi Umenyiora was going through a contract dispute with the Giants, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy tweeted his opinion of the matter.

Here’s what he wrote: "Overrated n soft 3rd best d-line on his team honestly."

As you can imagine, Umenyiora didn’t appreciate McCoy’s analysis, and as a result, he said, “She can say whatever he wants about it." The “she” to which he was referring was McCoy, and Umenyiora also let us know that McCoy goes by the nicknames of "Chihuahua" and "Lady GaGa” in the New York locker room.

Now that the Giants and Eagles are set to play Sunday (minus some of Philadelphia’s best talent, Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin), this five-month-old story was revisited this week. Umenyiora still is holding a grudge.

“What he did was unforgivable,” Umenyiora said, via the NY Daily News. “Do you understand what I mean? Because whenever you see a man in a contract dispute, a fellow NFL player, you don’t take that opportunity to take your shots at him. You wait until you’re about to play him, then you take your shots. . . . This, if he was going to say something, should have been the week he said some things like that.”

I suppose I can kinda sorta see Umenyiora’s point, but honestly, if Umenyiora is the third-best defensive linemen on his team (and I suppose with Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck, it’s a possibility), don’t you think the Giants already would know it. It’s not like they’d need to take advice from an opposing running back on how much money they should pay their personnel.

McCoy has been quiet this week in regards to Umenyiora, and without Vick in the lineup, the Giants will focus more of their attention on slowing down the Eagles running game. And that has Umenyiora excited about reacquainting himself with McCoy.

“He ran his mouth,” Umenyiora said of McCoy. “He crossed the line that shouldn’t have been crossed. I’m not really concerned about that. I’ll see him on the football field, and we’ll go from there.”

Typical of the Eagles... All talk and nothing to back it up..... Osi was one of the best players on a Super Bowl winning team.  McCoy is like the 5th best player on a supremely overrated team.  GO GMEN!!!!!!

Osi Human Urine is a classless thug and hopefully he suffers a season ending injury tonight against the Eagles.



This from a fan of the team that employs Michael Vick.

DumDumm, you are an idiot. What did you create your account this morning so you could post that stupidity? I'm not even a Giants fan, so I'll have to wait until the last week of the season when MY Redskins come to Philly and knock Andy Reid into retirement. Don't sleep on the Skins, this rough patch is all in Shannahans master plan. It perfectly fits his "system", even if the players don't.

Tasteless comment dum dum and very hypocritical since you have perhaps the worst thug in the NFL on your team. I guess I can't blame simpleminded people such as yourself. Especially when the "Dream Team" is bunch of frauds.
