Justin Tuck on LeSean McCoy: “Social media has made people cowards”

Justin Tuck, Brandon Jacobs AP

A war of words has broken out between Eagles and Giants players this month, all dating back to Philadelphia running back LeSean McCoy writing on Twitter that New York defensive end Osi Umenyiora is “overrated” and “soft.”

Giants defensive end Justin Tuck says his biggest problem with it all is that McCoy wrote something on Twitter that Tuck doesn’t think he’d say to Umenyiora’s face. And Tuck says that’s a problem that extends far beyond just the McCoy-Umenyiora feud.

“I honestly think social media has made people cowards,” Tuck said on Mike and Mike in the Morning, via Philly.com. “Where I’m from, if you had a problem with somebody, you said it to their face and that was it. I think now people are hiding behind computers and smartphones to get out something they got on their chest.”

Tuck also thinks the substance of McCoy’s statement was untrue, and he said he and his teammates took offense.

“Yes, we will take that personally,” Tuck said. “He might want to watch some film before he starts talking about a defensive end of Osi’s quality. I don’t know where he would say something of that nature because obviously I think Osi’s stats back up the fact that he’s a pretty good NFL football player.”

And if Umenyiora is soft, Tuck thinks McCoy should prove that face-to-face on the football field, not tweet about it.

    I hate Tuck, but he’s dead on.

    Giants … 3 Superbowl trophies. (NFC East teams … 11)

    Eagles … Z E R O.

    Social media has done a lot to destroy America least of which making people cowards.

    I love Tuck. Why couldn’t the Pats have gotten HIM instead of his useless cousin??? You should always stick up for your teammates or at least not make bad comments about them publicly.

    Personally, I think Osi and Stray were good complements to each other and Osi on his own is not even close to the player Stray was on HIS own (One of the best all around DEs I ever saw). Osi needs a strong, great all around DE across from him to do his thing.

    As for McCoy, it sounds like he could benefit from a little one on one time with Herm Edwards.

    i’m not even a giants fan but i can tell you Tuck hit the nail on the head

    i’ve liked this kid ever since i saw him run down LT back in 2005

    I honestly Think this lockout has made hate reading about football.

  7. Knightlines says: Jun 30, 2011 7:53 AM

    In the 2 games that they met?

    LeSean McCoy – 24/175/1 rushing in 2 games and 9/42 receiving vs. NYG.

    Osi Umenyiora – 7 tackles

    He said osi was overrated, not horrible, and based off those 2 performances against a rival in a division game, If Osi was a true star, he would of rose to the occasion….but nope overrated.

    I think leSean did say it face to face, with his performance. Far from spectacular, but I’m not judging if they should be in the Hall, I’m just looking at the head 2 head games.

  8. red2redman says: Jun 30, 2011 7:54 AM

    7 ypc against the Giants D is backing up what McCoy said. Stop McCoy from shredding your D and then talk, I think morning shows are ruining America you got something to say, say it to the persons face.

  9. nickwillis99 says: Jun 30, 2011 7:56 AM

    Fantasy football advice: don’t start LeSean McCoy when the Eagles face the Giants. If it’s the 4th quarter, Giants up by 24 points, with 4 minutes to go . . . there’s still going to be an entire defense ready to rock LeSean

    “I laugh at stuff like that. It takes a coward and some more words I can’t say, to push a guy in the back when the play is dead. It just proves what kind of dirtbag he is.” – Justin Tuck, commenting on Flozell Adams behind his back.

    @Justin Punk “I honestly think social media has made people cowards,” Tuck said on Mike and Mike in the Morning, via Philly.com. “Where I’m from, if you had a problem with somebody, you said it to their face and that was it. I think now people are hiding behind computers and smartphones to get out something they got on their chest.”
    ===============================

    Maybe this fool should talk to Youmenurine before opening his fool mouth. Youmenurine clearly stated that McCoy has said many things to his face on the football field that hurt Youmenurines feelings and made him cry.

    Saying the things that he’s said to Youmenurine on the field would mean he’s not a coward. But then Justin Punk isn’t smart enough to know the difference.

  15. eaglebobby says: Jun 30, 2011 8:13 AM

    Yes, we will take that personally,” Tuck said. “He might want to watch some film before he starts talking about a defensive end of Osi’s quality. I don’t know where he would say something of that nature because obviously I think Osi’s stats back up the fact that he’s a pretty good NFL football player.”

    He has seen the quality of Osi’s play–as HE RAN AROUND HIM FOR A WINNING 50 YARD TD last year. And the ol’ Giants 3 SBs Eagles 0 is really getting old–the Eagles do have 3 NFL championships. Maybe Tuck should remember the Eagles have beaten the Giants 6 straight times–including coming back from 21 down with under 8 mins to go–and MCoy has a 6.3 rushing avg against the Giants. So, I’d say he’s pretty much backed up his talk.

  16. zerored78 says: Jun 30, 2011 8:21 AM

    Shouldn’t Tuck have shut up and complained to McCoy to his face then?

  17. angrycorgi says: Jun 30, 2011 8:24 AM

    I disagree…social media hasn’t made people cowards…it merely supplied pre-existing cowards with a public forum to spout things without fear of physical reprisal. The cowards were all cowards long before social media arrived. The only difference is now you can see what they would have said if they weren’t cowards.

  18. angrycorgi says: Jun 30, 2011 8:25 AM

    @eaglebobby
    So you and all the other Eagle fans say “And the ol’ Giants 3 SBs Eagles 0 is really getting old”. In my opinion, so is the old “The Eagles have beaten the Giants 6 straight times”.
    So if you want Giants fans to stop trotting out the same old lines, then maybe Eagle fans should do the same.

    There is (mostly likely) a much better chance that the Giants beat the Eagles BEFORE the Eagles win a Super Bowl.

  21. burgandyandgold says: Jun 30, 2011 8:43 AM

    I have wondered for decades now why the Eagles always have such punks on their teams? So mouthy yet never win. LeSean McCoy, T.O., Freddie Mitchell, Jon Runyan, Ricky Waters, that dirty player who killed himself a couple years back, Mike Vick, the list goes on and on.

  22. thefirstsmilergrogan says: Jun 30, 2011 8:47 AM

    didn’t this all start in person with shady and osi talking smack on the field? so shady actually did say it to his face.

    since tuck was also out there, he just restarted this nonsense because he wanted to see his name in the paper during the dead time.

  23. macbull says: Jun 30, 2011 8:58 AM

    Tuck is 100% right…

    I refer to it as “keyboard courage”…

    …those who write like they are the toughest guy around, but would they “say” what they “wrote” to the individuals face?

    I would predict, in a majority of cases, the tough guys behind the “keyboard” would be doing some fancy talking, if they came face to face with the individual they were “writing” about.

  24. movieman5 says: Jun 30, 2011 9:13 AM

    Wasn’t yoururine benched because he was soft? The whole NJ team talks and acts like they are entitled to something (except for easy E, a.k.a. soft serve QB) . YOU ARE ENTITLED TO NOTHING! That is why you have been owned by the Philadelphia Eagles for 3 straight years. Can someone go back and make a funny montage of all there excuses after every eagles game, on why they did not beat the eagles for the past 3 years. That would be quite hilarious.

  25. imnice777 says: Jun 30, 2011 9:14 AM

    Stats talk better than anything. McCoy should watch some tape? Why do that when you’ve already shown that on the field you get the job done. His performance against the Giants gives him the right to talk any trash he wants. Keep him out of the end zone, then you’ll have room to talk.

  26. jw731 says: Jun 30, 2011 9:19 AM

    Damn…….McCoy sure as hell got the G-hens panties in a bunch, over some trash talk….Perhaps, the d-line should talk to Jacobs, as his panties are always in a bunch…..Oh, and another thing, the social media is’t going anywhere, in fact it’s probably going to get worse…Buy a box of tissues……..

  27. andjmoore says: Jun 30, 2011 9:20 AM

    Pretty sure McCoy “proved that face-to-face” last season when he put up something like 200 yds of offense against the Giants, including a 50-yd game-clinching TD-run.

  28. andjmoore says: Jun 30, 2011 9:23 AM

    “Maybe Tuck should remember the Eagles have beaten the Giants 6 straight times”

    So the Giants won 9 straight against the Eagles during the Fossil/Fox era, the point is who really cares?
    Then again if I was an Eagle fan looking for anything to grab onto since they NEVER won a Superbowl, I guess I can understand.

    I will say this to me the Eagles and Giants always had the biggest rivalry in the NFC East, I have alot of respect for the Eagles, they always been our biggest PITA… Can’t wait for the season to start…. Its going to be fun to watch this battle…

  30. whathappenedtovox says: Jun 30, 2011 9:50 AM

    It’s kind of funny that now FOUR Giants players have responded to something LeSean McCoy brazenly tweeted while he was waiting out the final 45 seconds of his Hot Pocket cooking in the microwave.

    Are the Eagles in the Giants’ heads? Yeah, I think that’s pretty clear.

  31. melonnhead says: Jun 30, 2011 9:54 AM

    I will say this to me the Eagles and Giants always had the biggest rivalry in the NFC East

    ——————————————————————————

    There are no “big” NFCE rivalries that don’t involve the Cowboys. We’re talking crazy stuff that has been going on for decades. Bounty Bowls (1 and 2), the chicken club, fake kneel-down, the Pork Chop Bowl, Harvey Martin’s funeral wreath, heartbreaking last-minute losses, improbable last-minute wins. The kind of stuff that keeps a team that resides west of the Mississippi in Texas in the NFC “East” with teams from NY, DC and Philly.

  33. meyerla says: Jun 30, 2011 10:05 AM

    The Super Bowl argument is lame. It would make sense if a Giants fans was trash talking to an Eagles fan but players aren’t really invested in team history like fans. The fact is McCoy is 4-0 vs. the Giants in HIS Eagles tenure. That’s what matters to him.

    As an Eagles fan at first I didn’t like what he said. But getting a little trash talk now with nothing going on is good. It stirs a great rivalry a little bit. Trying to overanalyze the significance of it is just fodder to fill space on radio shows & blogs.

  34. jfont1584 says: Jun 30, 2011 10:12 AM

    Justin Tuck could never be more off base… Lesean had 2 of his best rushing games last year against the Giants D. There were only 2 other games last year that he averaged more yards per carry (dallas and detroit).

    And for tuck claiming that LeSean is a coward for not saying it to his face… well if he read the article posted on this very site on june 17th he might have saw this…

    “The friction began, predictably, during games between the Giants and Eagles. “[W]e had words on the field — both times we played,” Umenyiora said.

    Giants suck. Go Birds!

    Uh, Justin? Lesean McCoy and the Eagles HAVE proven that Umenyiora is soft, six straight games.

    Mr Tuck, if you disagree then prove it on the field. The field is where the Eagles have been in your collective faces proving the point that McCoy made on twitter.

    i agree with WFERG1121
    we should stop talkin the same old line about beating you 6 straigh times…
    no worries, at the end of this season we will be saying 8 straight times.

    & as far as that SB title in 06′ / complete luck.
    If McBum was healthy that year, you cats wouldnt even have made the playoffs. & who single covers Plaxico in the redzone. + tyree .. cmon
    luck luck luck luck
    (yes i am very bitter about the no title thing)

    Pretty sad when you had to have a jail in the stadium during games for all the ” loyal , die-hard ” fans there…….

    The Eagles will ALWAYS be ” next years champions ” !!!!!!!

  43. stanklepoot says: Jun 30, 2011 11:13 AM

    Tuck and Osi need to talk a little more before Tuck tries to defend Osi. According to Osi’s earlier statements, this all started with on-field trash talk, and now has spread to twitter, not the other way around. Osi mentioned some rude comments that McCoy supposedly said to him on the field already. That being the case, McCoy isn’t being an internet tough guy. He’s already said worse apparently when Osi had a chance to get back at him. More importantly, McCoy has put up better yard per rush stats against the Giants than anyone else since the merger. So, if anyone is going to talk some trash to Osi, it seems like McCoy has more right than most. It’s simple really. If Osi wants to shut McCoy up, shut him down on the field. Aside from that, Osi and his teammates can say whatever they want. If McCoy keeps up this kind of performance against the Giants, he wins the argument.

    Rather funny coming from a cowboys fan, considering that the name you love to gloat about “America’s Team” came about because a guy working for NFL Films got tired of saying next year’s champs or contenders for their yearly retrospective after they blew it yet again. More importantly, the Cowboys have been completely inconsequential (except for the media) since Jimmy Johnson’s team went away. Wow, Jerry really proved who it was who knew how to put together a championship team didn’t he? Too bad for Jerry (and cowboys fans) the answer was Jimmy Johnson.

  50. macjacmccoy says: Jun 30, 2011 11:46 AM

    Obivously what Tuck is saying is total BS when it relates to McCoy. If you go back and read the things the Giants players have been saying McCoy has had no problem saying what he thinks to Osi’ face. Osi himself said him and McCoy have had alot of exchanges on the field that got heated.

    I dont really agree with what Shady said I think Osi is a good player but if you look at it from Shadys view I can see where hes coming from. The Giants havent beaten the Eagles since McCoy joined the team. Also since McCoy has joined the Eagles Osi has been the 3rd best de on the Giants and hasnt been the player he used to be. So I can see where he gets the overrated comment from. You hear all this talk about the big bad osi uemenyiora before you join the league but then you get there and that guy is no where to be found.

    If Lesean was a coward he wouldnt have said anything. He knows hes going to see Osi and the Giants twice a year for as long as those 2 are on the same teams. So obviously he isnt all that worried about him.

  51. dcowboyfan says: Jun 30, 2011 12:33 PM

    re stanklepoot : i completely agree with what most of what you said regarding Jerry Jones…he should stay in his suite in Jerry’s world, and not meddle with the on the field issues, thats a GM’s job, something he has absolutely no clue about..

    I for one, loathe the title of ” America’s Team “, that went out in the 70’s. Our best years were with Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson, we have never recovered since he left.

    But the Eagles constant excuse EVERY year is that they didnt have the ” weapons” for Donovan , T.O dissed him to the media, …
    Pretty ironic how they played when Garcia took over for him, huh ?? Coincidence ?? Hmmm
    Andy Reid will NEVER win a championship in Philly, and he has run out of excuses…In my opinion, No one else wants that job !!!! Its his way, or the highway, no matter how many NFC East titles, or NFC titles, the trophy case is still empty…Laurie will dump the team once they start their decline, and go back to producing Academy Award winning movies !!! The entire organization is a complete joke !!! including their fans !!!!!

    “But the Eagles constant excuse EVERY year is that they didnt have the ” weapons” for Donovan , T.O dissed him to the media, …

    As a Giants fan, I agree with that, they did not have the weapons and Lurie/Reid blew an opportunity when the Entire NFC was down. WR’s never got seperation until TO arrived. Carolina game they could barely get off the line of scrimmage.
    They surrounded Mcnabb with Trash his entire career, then they finally get talent and throw him out the door for doggy boy..

    Garcia was a probowl QB, but he never took the Eagles to NFC championship 4 times and a Superbowl.

    I will say this if the Patriots cheated (probably did) then Mcnabb may have already have won a Superbowl.. Huge advantage if your a QB/WR and you know the defense that a team is in. That’s why Brady stats prior to 2007 is a fraud. Just Eagle fans will never know.

    to the cowboy fan in d.c.: guessing you jumped the bandwagon in the troy and emmit era. if you are actually from d.c., and not texas, that says everything about you…..

    while andy has his faults, hes a far better coach than any the boys have had since jerry’s ego ran jimmy out of town.

    the eagles haven’t offered the excuse of no weapons for mcnabb, the eagles fans have complained that they had no weapons. not after the fact, but for andy’s entire tenure. andy spent money on linemen and his quarterback, and usually one running back (staley, westbrook, mccoy). he missed on a boatload of w.r. draft picks and free agents (mitchell who was picked before reggie wayne, gari scott, na brown, pinkston, baskett, curtis) and filled in with old retreads like antonio freeman. eagle fans have complained about their allocation of money to positions. now we have good wides, and the question is whether he has enough linemen to protect the qb, and whether the d can rise to the level it had previously maintained for about ten years. hard without j.j. in my estimation.

    and finally dude, anyone feeling the need to add three to four exclamation points to each half sentence has no business calling anyone else a joke….

    If you watched the great Eagle comeback game and you are honest, the Eagles were getting killed that game, alot of things needed to happen for the Eagles.. It did and Congrats. The only good highlight for a Giants fan was Couglin saying “WTF are you doing? you were supposed to punt the ball out of bounds.”
    Steve Smith missed both Eagle games last year, Hakeem Nicks missed the “great comeback game.” Other than Manningham we played bums off the street. Eagle fans should be familiar with that.
    It’s going to be a different game, and Mccoy just added more fuel to an already pissed off defense.

    Who hired Jimmy Johnson? Funny thing is Jerry won a Super Bowl without Jimmy. Jimmy not so much, without Jerry.

    let me speak some honest truth.
    I’m a realist ,, hence the name.

    Andy Reid’s philosophy will never succeed.

    1st you need a run game.. you cant be 65-35 run to pass. that will never happen.. a defensive coordinator’s main job is to make a offense one sided. Andy does that for the opponents.

    2nd,, his defensive is weak,, never because of who coaches it,, but because of the players he brings in. . his DL are 6’/300lbs goin against 6’5 315.. thats why teams can run on us..
    then, every DB he has had Since Troy Vincent and Bobay Tailor has been under 5’11.. then they bring in Ellis hobbs whos 5’10 185.. look at every receiver coming out 6’3-6’4 220.. how is that ever gonna work..

    unless Andy changes his mindset on what players we need ,,, these giant fans are always gonna have the line “yeah, but we got a SB title.”

    Giants suck. get out of Jersey.

    Ok time out…I heard on NFLN last night that Tuck said that Osi “handled it in an appropriate way” meaning all that junk about Osi calling McCoy Lady Gaga in response, I am guessing. On that, Mr. Tuck, you are wrong IMO.
    The best way for Osi to handle that would have been to ignore it not act like a butthurt 4th grader on the playground in response to McCoy’s silly and unprompted smacktalk.
