New York Giants defensive end and two-time Super Bowl champion Osi Umenyiora kicked up his feud with Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy on Sunday via Twitter by wishing "Happy Mothers Day Lesean Mccoy! Enjoy your special day!!" The beef began in the summer of 2011 when McCoy tweeted that Umenyiora is "overrated" and "soft" and that Osi is the third-best defensive lineman on the Giants. After McCoy's comments the Giants defensive end would later refer to McCoy as "Lady Gaga" and "she." Last year Umenyiora told ESPN that "I refer to him as she because that is something that a woman would do. 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. I have always referred to him as that because he is woman. 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." McCoy responded to Umenyiora's Mothers Day wishes by tweeting out "LOl let the beef begin."
