LeSean McCoy not ready to bury hatchet with Steve Smith

AP

In June, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora got into a Twitter fight.  Former Giants receiver Steve Smith jumped in, pointing out that the Eagles trophy case looks like Mother Hubbard’s cupboard.

So, when it comes to Steve Smith, LeSean McCoy still may be inclined to mutter a different phrase that starts with “muther.”

Smith had said he plans to seek out McCoy, to give him a hug, and to attribute the ugliness to “Twitter beef.”  So how did it go?

That’s going to take a little time,” Smith said Monday, via PhillySportsDaily.com.  “[McCoy] wasn’t the happiest.  He said he meant what he said, so it’s all good.”

Apparently, it’s not all good.  And thus it could be getting good.

  1. Time to take a page out of the REAL Steve Smith’s playbook, and pop somebody in the mouth.

    Maybe Steve Smith could rent Steve Smith as a bodyguard.

  2. Twitter gansta’s. Osi old and gets more annoying with age. Mccoy’s a loudmouth and an average NFL HB at best.. Until he does something to prove he’s earned his right to talk, just shut it and play ball. In fact, all ya just give it a rest..

  3. The tension between the starting running back and the 5th string receiver will destroy the eagles!

    oh wait a second…

  4. McCoy is a perfect fit for the Eagles. No bark, no bite. Besides Jackson, there are no other players in the league who deserve their heads to be knocked from their shoulders than these two classless clowns.

    Well, that sounds like a real manly, football-type thing to do.

  6. So what’s the problem, the Eagles trophy case does look like Mother Hubbard’s cupboard, don’t get mad for stating the obvious, win something… cry baby

  7. Good. It’s about time they all stop this frat brother crap and get to the point. The point of bashing each others brains in. Great to have some smack talk, some bulletin board material. Society is full of p*S*i*s these days.

  8. It’s ok, once they make up, they can go over the NY Giants defensive schemes and tendencies…..then they can both tear the G-men apart and get Shady his own SB Trophy!!!!!

    THIS EAGLES TEAM IS LOADED!!!

  12. I love people hating on us like they did the Miami Heat. It just goes to show you that we are the most feared team in the league.

    People always hate on greatness.

    I really don’t understand the comparisons tho, because unlike the Miami Heat….the Philadelphia Eagles won’t lose to Dallas.

  13. jake2 name any giant with balls to knock the head off anybody, the only guy that comes close is Tuck and he needs help to get on and off the field yet alone hit somebody

  14. not to worry… these guys will be fast with all the time they’ll spend on the IR together.

  15. These Twitter fights crack me up. I don’t use Twitter, but I am starting to think I should…

  16. Keep taking all the attention away from the real Champs, GB! It seems like the Eagles are the defending Chumpians. Win something, then maybe somebody might listen.
    The Eagles have the same amount of Superbowl trophies as my daughter!

    I agree with McCoy, Smith is a Giant until he deserves to be an Eagle.

    _______________________________

    You are such a moron.

    The Giants have trophies, the Eagles have dust gathering. What league are you watching?

  18. I guess Steve Smith hurt LeSean feelings with that empty super bowl case stuff. I guess now he now knows how the people he stiffed felt when he didn’t show up to those 2 shows he blew off during the off season. Grow up LeSean.

  19. cardmagnet
    As a Cowboys fan, I will smugly enjoy any turmoil within the Philadelphia Heat.

    Too bad that is the only thing about this football season you’ll be able to enjoy as a cowboy fan…….

  20. Your all just mad cause our teams better then yours. Smith deserves to be smacked around a little bit , if for no other reason then get that giant stink off him. But keep it above the knees shady and then get over it cause Smith will also be a giant killer. PS New York hasn’t beat us in 3+ years they’re so bitter.

  21. smith will regret signing with the eagles this year. gonna be a long season for him

    not 1 guy on the eagles wants him there. this picture and the shots from live tv on thurs show how out of place he is there.

    loved you steve but you brought this upon yourself

  22. birdobeamen,

    Uhhhhhhh, did you just say something about greatness? Greatness and the Eagles shouldn’t be in the same sentence until it is earned. And one SB win STILL won’t earn you greatness.

    If you think the Eagles will beat Dallas, let your team’s play back it up. And btw, a regular season game is really meaningless. Division rival games are entertaining, but unless they are dependent on a playoff spot, they are more for bragging rights. Nobody is scared of the Eagles. Fear is perceived, and your team is anything but feared. If anything, more teams will be gunning for you with all the players you brought on. Chemistry, execution, new assistant coaches, # of injuries – ALL question marks for this season, and yet all this talk about greatness and Super Bowls.

    Counting those chickens before they hatch – Foolish is a term that comes to mind.
    We are in the second week of preseason, and you have these Eagle fans talking “greatness” and “SB”. WAY TOO EARLY, people. Here’s a novel idea before you all start the meaningless blabbing – WIN ONE. It’s real simple. All you have to do is win one.
    Smith was alluding to the fact that your Eagles have ZERO SB wins. He didn’t say anything that wasn’t true. And the truth does hurt, as McCoy is obviously still butt-hurt about the whole situation. Now it is on Smith to help bring a SB trophy after all these decades to the Eagles. It won’t be easy, and just because the team looks good on paper means NOTHING unless and until you win a SB. I won’t believe it until I see it.

  23. That’s what you get, TRAITOR. Don’t listen to your fat boy agent next time, who stonewalled us when you know you had a place here. Now when they spit you out next offseason and don’t have a market for your services (whereas you could have easily worked into the swing of things here and gotten the best possible deal HERE with the Giants), you’re gonna be ASH OUT.

    You made the bed, sleep in it. No such thing as “Twitter Beef” when you are real and do what you say online in person as well.

    I guess all that talk about being thankful to your “fans” here in New York was just “Facebook Thanks” huh?

    Better learn the game quickly son, or you won’t be in this league much longer.

As for the loudmouth comment he’s said 1 comment about another player on another team. So your clueless there to

  25. JSRDC, I am an Eagles Fan but I agree with you , I am excited about our off season pick ups but it has to be seen how they will work on the field. I think it will be fine because I like our coaching staff and the changes that were made in the offseason.
    When it comes down to it The Eagles are the same as every other team in the league right now ( O wins / O losses ) Forget the past . Right now we are looking at this coming season.
    The Eagles have put some good pieces in place now we just have to get them to work together.

    Good Luck in this coming season, may the best team be standing at the end.

    We’re bitter? Sounds like your flaky RB is the one who’s bitter.

    Another moron that doesn’t understand NYG Football.

    The only time we will be bitter is if you win a Superbowl. That’s the ultimate goal of every single NFL Team. You can’t spin that FACT any other way.

    So until you do reach your ultimate goal, the one you’ve FAILED to accomplish in over 50 YEARS – you should probably stick to talking about the miracles at the meadowlands – you know, since its the high point of your entire franchise’s existence.

    (No one cares about 1960 except for your desparate fans)

    Good Talk!

    I thought I heard it all from the delusional tweeker Eagle fans but this takes the cake. One of you chromosome lacking nabobs actually compared the Eagles to Jordan and the dynasty Bulls.

  28. McCoy may be a solid RB but all this continues to make him look like a little bitch as a person. News flash dude, you guys are TEAMMATES now, and you’re still gonna hold something of a grudge over a twitter war of all things? Why not forgive, forget, GROW UP and work towards helping your team finally get that Lombardi in their trophy case? I thought you had to be an adult to play in the NFL, apparently that only applies to literal age.

  29. They do have 5 participation certificates in the trophy case for NFC Championship appearances under Reid. So it’s not all dust in there.

    The NFC East has the most SB titles and that is with absolutely no help from that certain team whose fans have their homes towed back and forth to games.

  34. You can call McCoy whatever you want, but I wouldn’t question his ability. He is, by FAR, the best back in the NFC East and that isn’t even in question. He runs better, blocks better, and catches better than everyone else, so keep hating…..

    Fun to watch if your one of the other good NFL teams.

    ——————————

    Fun to desperately hope for if you’re scared of the Eagles and don’t think your team can beat them straight-up, I guess.

    How many #4 receivers tear a team apart?

    How many guys in the locker room take Steve Smith’s side over LeSean McCoy?

    Let’s not make mountains out of molehills, here.

    McCoy will never be what Brian Westbrook was. Skill wise or class wise…

    – Cowboys fan

    —————————–

    Agreed that McCoy will never have the class of Brian Westbrook (I’m an Eagles fan).

    However, he’s already as good (now he just has to sustain that production) and has the potential to be better than B-West.

  37. He won’t accept his apology for that comment — What a child! and… anyway who cares, I hope they beat the crap out of each other. That’ll teach ’em.

  38. There’s nothing McCoy could say that would scare me, kid looks like he’s 13.

    But let me get this straight…McCoy called Osi soft, Smith said you have an empty trophy case and now McCoy has a grudge? Wow…what a baby. He can dish it out but can’t take it himself. Sign of a paduss.

    The Philadelphia Heat fans are doing what they do EVERY single year, predict greatness and then continually prove they’re perpetual losers. I’ll give them credit though, they lose in style, crash n burn style. Can’t wait for it come December.

  39. It’s nice, for the first time in history, to see Dallas laying low while the rest of the NFC East is acting like drama queens, doing the girlie twitter deal and proclaiming greatness. Keep them muzzled until game time, Garrett.

    Actually, Jerry was squaking earlier about how Nnamdi really “wanted” to be a Cowboy.

    No one tops the Cowboys in needless drama! Ever!!!!

  42. pointing out the fact that ones super bowl trophy case is still virgin, untouched, empty, void, can hurt pretty bad.
    but hey sheagles fans you’ve beat us 6x in a row!!
    woohoo!!!
    (i’ve got a feeling you’d trade 20 regular season wins just to have something to put in that superbowl trophy case).

  43. As a Cowboys fan I have to say this: Questioning McCoy’s skill as a RB is absolutely ignorant. The kid is really, really good. Question his class, his ignorance, whatever…but do not question his skill set…

    And I hate the damn Eagles, but he’s a great player. They are using him farrrr better than they did Westy already, actually taking advantage of his abilities early and often…they f’d up big time with Westbrook, he could have been soooo much more but they are making up for it with the use of McCoy so far.

  44. When will paying ur debt 2 society mean anything. First he did his time and came back better. Paid his due on the bench and came in as a back and was cheated out of the mvp. Not 2 mention had the best passer.rating td 2 int ratio and didnt play the whole season. Who has EVER done that? Not 2 mention that a white qb named ben roethlisburger got 2 sexual assualt cases swept under the rug. As a father of 2 daughters I would rather u kill my dog than rape my daughter. He did his time its over let his nuts go please!

    “@birdobeaman and every other football fan that hates the cowboys, “People always hate on greatness…”

    this is exactly why people hate the cowboys.”

    Wrong! The Steelers have been infinitely more successful than the Cowboys but you don’t get the unabashed loathing of them league wide that you do the Cowboys. It’s not even close. No, the reason people hate them so much is doofs like yourself who make it so easy to hate them and actually believe the moniker given them by a TV producer is accurate. You are the most arrogant, clueless and fair weather fan base in all of ball and stick sports and you guys run your mouths on an exponentially louder level than every other group of fans out there…when your team is winning. When they suck we get crickets chirping and you all disappear for the most part, like last year. Guys like Jerry Jones make it easier as well but the sheer stupidity coupled with mind numbing arrogance of your fan base is what makes the country loathe you. Don’t kid yourselves, the country loathes you guys because of the inordinate amount of card carrying d-bags who don’t even know their own roster half the time and make up a large chunk of your fan base. The same feckless m0rons who root for the Yankees, Lakers and Red Wings.

    Oh you mean like the Redskins did LAST season? Practice what you preach, the Redskins had an epic failure the 2nd game but they knocked your poster boy out for several games and pretty much man handled the Eagles the 1st time out. Eagle fans are hilarious. No other fan in the league even comes close to talking as much trash without their team ever having won a darn thing to back it up. You DO realize the rest of the division laughs at you mentards right?

  46. all giants fans plz n quiet. 4 words miracle in the meadowlands. Guess the taste of defeat isnt easy 2 get out. And championships? Ok they beat an undefeated powerhouse as a wild card team on a flukey catch from a wr that got cut the next year and only won because they used the exact same defensive scheme as us the only team they beat by 3 that year but yall got it. Besides wen u only go 2 the playoffs twice in 10 years u tend 2 dwell on the past. Donovan mcnabb and andy ried have no rings but any real football fan would know the only ppl wit a higher win pct is tom brady and bellickeck. Not even manning won more games. And we have easily been the most consistant team in the nfc since 2000. And I would go on a limb and say most if not all u haters arent even from dallas or ny. Probly detriot or cleavland or san fran. Next year u will probly b eagles fans like yall did gb this year. If u cant beat them join them.
