I’m Over LeSean McCoy’s Beef with Osi Umenyiora

Ah yes. Let’s piss on the flames of silly. 

I normally love a good feud. A strong beef, if you will. So, over the past year or so when LeSean McCoy and Osi Umenyiorirmatisyahu have gone after each other on Twitter and through the media – Shady called Osi “soft,” Osi called Shady “Lady Gaga” and a “Chihuahua” – I sat back in my chair and watched, excitedly, as the best Eagle traded glancing (and somewhat lame) blows with a New York Giant.

Last night, as the focus of an ESPN E:60 segment, McCoy and Umightbeamenora continued their feud, which has now taken a turn to silly city. 

First, both players addressed the war of words, with McCoy somewhat humorously shrugging off 310toyuma’s weird comments about pop stars and small dogs: “Yeah, he’s corny.”


But then again, so is McCoy: “Yeah, this is for real. I don’t like Osi. I don’t know how he feels. He might think it’s a game, but I don’t play them type of games. So, every time on the field, I would say stuff to him. Like, you’re the third best defensive lineman on the defense, which I didn’t lie. I did lie. Because he’s like fourth now, so I actually did lie.” 

McCoy continued: “Osi, to be honest, he is a good player. I think he thinks he’s better than what he really is. You know, I think he’s a ballerina in a Giants uniform. Other than that, that’s all I got to say about Osi.”

Great– ballerina. So here we have two of the best players in a storied rivalry lobbing shots at each other about being Lady Gaga, a mom, a Chihuahua, and now a ballerina. I’m over this.

Credit to ESPN for their use of caricatures in the piece, though. Watch it here.

  1. Too bad we won’t be able to see them settle it on the field since Big Red will call for 250+ pass plays to 3 run plays.

  2. ^^^^ what a loser that guy is. not only does he not understand that “storied” was an adjective modifying “rivalry,” not the Eagles, but he’s a New York fan trolling a Philly sports blog. Find something better to do. Like trying to lose your virginity

  3. Shady is one of the best RBs in the league and could go down as the best RB in Eagles history. That said, he says the dumbest shit on Twitter all the time, most of which make zero sense at all. Both of these guys need to get over it.

  4. “Too bad we won’t be able to see them settle it on the field since Big Red will call for 250+ pass plays to 3 run plays.”

  5. LOL @ Phunkenstein: I might be a loser, but I’m definitely not a Giants fan wasting my time trolling. Further, I do grasp the English language so I do understand that the chosen adjective modified the noun “rivalry” rather than “Eagles”. But the question remains: ‘can a team be “storied” with no success in Super Bowls?’

  6. @NYG- “Storied” is modifying the noun “rivalry” not the noun “Eagles”. A rivalry is a state of competition between two parties, in this case the Eagles and the Giants. The Eagles Giants rivalry is storied because it has existed for many years and has included many exciting games. The Eagles Giants (1933) rivalry pre-dates the existence of the Superbowl(1965). So, the answer to your question is Yes, a rivalry can be storied even if one of the teams has not won a Superbowl.
