The war of words between Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy and New York Giants DE Osi Umenyiora just won’t quit. McCoy called Umenyiora “a ballerina in a Giants uniform” on ESPN’s E:60 Tuesday night after Umenyiora sent this tweet in early May to McCoy: “Happy Mothers Day Lesean Mccoy! Enjoy your special day!!” “Yeah this is for real — like I don’t like Osi,” McCoy said on the ESPN show. “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 is a bum … You are the third-best defensive lineman on the defense.’ Which I didn’t lie. Wait, I did lie. He’s the fourth now, so I actually did lie.” Umenyiora didn’t exactly disagree with McCoy and appeared to take the high road this time. The two will get a chance to further the animosity as the Giants play at Philadelphia on Sunday night. “I might be a ballerina in a Giants uniform,” Umenyiora said. “I’m lucky to be playing 10 years in the league, to have won two Super Bowls. All that is pure luck and I’m happy for him, I’m happy he got his contract and I’m happy everything is working out well for him in Philadelphia.”
