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.

Osi Umenyiora Doesn’t Want LeSean McCoy to be “No Twitter Gangsta”

I ain't soft

Osi Umenyiora responded to LeSean McCoy's Tweet – ya know, that one that called him "soft" and the "3rd best d-line on his team" – yesterday: []

"I mean, he’s a girl, man. Who does stuff like that?" Umenyiora said by phone this afternoon. "If he has more of these things to say, he can say ‘em to my face. Don’t be no Twitter gangster man."

Umenyiora, who referred to McCoy as "Lady Gaga," said the two have had heated exchanges between the lines.

"Yeah, me and him, we had words on the field — both times we played. I hate him, he hates me, period," Umenyiora said. "He chose to take that off the field and make it public when it’s something that’s between me and him. It’s something we can address on the football field. He let the whole world know about it, so I’m going to respond."


Umenyioraoauoroausoaora went on to say that McCoy called him an "African (fuck)." Oh yes, the race card, the Gaga card… they have been played.

A lot more here, including the "real hatred" that exists between the Giants and the Birds. Foooooooootball!!!!! 

Sorry, I'm deprived.
