McCoy Calls Umenyiora a ‘Ballerina’

The Eagles and Giants are playing each other Sunday night and LeSean McCoy and Osi Umenyiora are renewing their war of words.

McCoy re-lit the fuse with Umenyiora by blasting him as “a ballerina in a Giants uniform” and calling him the fourth best defensive end on his team. He made his comments on E:60, a special on their long-running feud that will air on ESPN on Tuesday night.

And though their feud has included some laugh-out-loud moments, “Shady” McCoy insists that it’s “real”.

“Yeah this is for real — like I don’t like Osi,” McCoy said in comments released by ESPN prior to the 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.”

“I might be a ballerina in a Giants uniform,” Umenyiora said. “I’m lucky I got the contract (a restructured deal that will pay him about $6 million this season). 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.”
