Ah, nothing like rekindling an old feud with the New York Giants.
In a piece that will air on ESPN's "E:60" this evening, Shady McCoy said that he couldn't say what he really wanted to on Twitter to respond to Giants defender Osi Umenyiora's Mother's Day trash talk over the summer due to his contract situation being unresolved. Now that Shady's been paid, he can speak freely. And wiseacrely.
"Osi, to be honest, he is a good player," McCoy said. "I think he thinks
that he is better than what he really is. I think he is a ballerina in a
Giants uniform. Other than that, that is all I got to say about Osi."
Not bad, Shady, not bad.
McCoy was also a guest on 94 WIP's Player's Lounge show on Monday night and was being goaded by former Eagle Ike Reese to talk some smack on Umenyiora.
Instead of fueling the fire there, McCoy played it pretty soft, saying that he didn't really know Osi personally and that the two would squash their beef on the field.

The real talk will take place on the field this Sunday night at the Linc.
