Umenyiora, a British-born two-time All-Pro who the Giants took out of Troy University with the 56th pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, has feuded with the brilliant Philadelphia Eagles running back since last summer.
Although reportedly adversaries for a while, McCoy, a 2011 All-Pro who the Eagles nabbed with the 53rd selection in the 2009 draft out of the University of Pittsburgh, amplified the disdain when he tweeted during the NFL lockout that Umenyiora is “overrated” and “soft.”
When informed that the Panther of yesteryear was acting the part of an Internet badass, the enormous bloke began referring to McCoy as “Lady Gaga” and “she.”
“I refer to him as she because that is something that a woman would do,” Umenyiora, 30, told ESPNNewYork.com last June. “You can sit over there and be a Twitter gangster all you want to but on the football field is where you are supposed to address these types of things.”
The 2005 NFC sacks leader continued trashing the 2011 FedEx Ground Player of the Year.
“I have always referred to him as that because he is woman,” said Umenyiora, who has compiled 69 sacks and 333 tackles since debuting 11-years ago in the swamps of Jersey. “We have a lot of animosity toward each other personally and on the football field is where I thought it was left. But he has decided to take it off the football field and say some things that I just have no respect for.”
It is understandable that Umenyiora would go batshit after being emasculated by the rudderless bird.
Nevertheless, the Englishman, who helped the Giants capture two Super Bowl crowns and long fornicated with Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks, must have something better to do during the offseason than express rage on a computer.
In stark contrast to the achievements of the Big Blue star, McCoy’s played in the league for a mere three-seasons, never sniffed a Vince Lombardi Trophy and apparently hasn’t stung a Runway Angel.
It is bizarre and nonsensical that Umenyiora would reinvigorate a quieting conflict on the day our nation honors mothers and motherhood.
As Osi Umenyiora aptly noted, “the football field is where you are supposed to address these types of things.”by
