LeSean McCoy and Osi Umenyiora have taken it upon themselves to have an offseason Eagles vs. Giants game. But this is a war of words and being played on the battlefield known as Twitter.
It began yesterday after a report surfaced at Pro Football Talk about Umenyiora being disgruntled with the Giants about an apparent broken promise where the Giants told him in 2008 that if after two years he was playing at a high level, they would either renegotiate his contract or let him seek a trade.
LeSean McCoy then tweeted that Osi is “Overrated n soft 3rd best d-line on his team honestly“.
Today, Umenyiora responded with a tweet of his own where he called McCoy a “chihuahua” and “Lady Gaga” then said “She can say whatever he wants about it”.
Oh no he di’int! Lady Gaga? An ankle-biting, taco loving dog?
Now all we need is Michael Buffer to announce: “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!”
Yes, this stuff is kind of silly but hey, it’s a slow offseason. Apparently the players in the Giants locker room call McCoy “Lady Gaga”. Wish I knew the inside joke as to why because she’s a little on the odd side. But none-the-less, this is starting to provide some NFL entertainment while we’re stuck in Lockout Hell.
