McCoy ready to bury the hatchet with Umenyiora

New York Giants v Philadelphia Eagles Getty Images

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy got the last laugh on Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora Sunday night, and now he wants to end their war of words.

“We crossed paths a couple times, we gave each other the eye,” McCoy said on the SportsRadio WIP Player’s Lounge show (via CBS Philly). “In the warmups, we looked at each other funny. I think after the game, it’s time to get over this Osi and LeSean thing because after the game [Umenyiora] said ‘you’re a heck of a player, we’re in this business, let’s get over this.’ He said, ‘let’s be done with it.’

Being a bigger man, also for myself, you’ve got to focus on the Giants, they’re a good team already. My goal is not an inter-division battle with Osi. It’s with the Giants, and trying to get to the Super Bowl.”

Of course, McCoy was the one who started the latest round of gum-flapping, calling Umenyiora a “ballerina.”

But given that he’s ready to move on, it sounds almost like perspective of the kind adults employ.

It might not make for as much pithy commentary as calling each other names, but it is a relief to those looking for a more enlightened discourse.

    I guess getting gashed for over 100 yards every time you play the Eagles might make you a little more humble.

    Two clowns on overrated football teams. Definitely time to move on.

  3. jbl429 says: Oct 2, 2012 9:38 AM

    Well, it was entertaining while it lasted.

  4. sj39 says: Oct 2, 2012 9:39 AM

    Sure, he’d probably like to bury the hatchet alright. In Osi’s head.

  5. n0hopeleft says: Oct 2, 2012 9:48 AM

    Since we’re ready to talk like adults, it’s important to remember the most important fact of this entire spat:

    Osi has 2 rings.

    McCoy has 0 rings.

    Say what you want, Osi was a huge part of us winning those championships. He elevated his play when it mattered most.

    Can Shady do the same for his team?

    The ballerina danced his way up and down the Giants defense

    They’re both terrible trash-talkers, but it was fun while it lasted…

    Easy for McCoy to want to “move on” after his team beat the Giants for the 9th time in the last 10 games and he ran through them like a knife through hot butter in the 2nd half to make that win happen.

  9. sjoyner59 says: Oct 2, 2012 10:11 AM

    They are both very good players for good teams,It provided a laugh but time for both players to move on

    In the “Eli Manning Era”, the Giants are 7-11 vs. the Eagles. So that means, before this current streak, the Giants (with Eli at the helm) were 6-2 against Philly.

    These things go in streaks. This one will eventually end, and then, MAYBE, Philly fans will find something to crow about besides regular season wins. Keep wearing them with pride, Philly fans!

  11. giantsfanbuteaglesownussoimaeaglesfan says: Oct 2, 2012 10:19 AM

    @ laeaglefan You own us. 9 out of 10 wins against us including knocking us out of the playoffs is honestly better than the Superbowls. We beat the Pats, so f’ing what, I don’t live near any Pats fans. We lose to you guys and the C’boys who got destroyed by a horrible Bears squad. I do live near and work with Eagles and C’boys fans and it’s f’ing embarrassing. The Giants can shove the rings up their A$$ until they give us wins over the f’ing rivals!! Yes I am a mad and embarrassed Giant fan.

  12. eddardofthehousestark says: Oct 2, 2012 10:26 AM

    Funny how quick Eagles are to cite the “9 out of 10 times” figure in regards to beating the Giants. In the grand scheme of things, those regular season wins (and Philly’s playoff wins for that matter) matter very little. New York has won 2 of the last 5 super bowls, and that doesn’t even account for how many rings they have in total. Philly has 0 rings. It’s the simple truth. For Philadelphia fans, their Super Bowl is playing the Giants and Cowboys every year. For Giants fans, their Super Bowl is the actual Super Bowl. I don’t have a dog in this fight, I am a fan of neither team, but it makes me laugh everytime I see an Eagles fan beat their chest over a regular season win. The Giants lost to the Redskins twice last year. The Redskins were home on Super Bowl Sunday (and the opening day of the playoffs for that matter) while the Giants got another ring. Get off your high horse and celebrate when there is a parade on Broad Street; until then, keep your mouths shut.

    “Can Shady do the same for his team?”

    If the Eagles ever do win a Super Bowl, there is little question that Shady McCoy will be a big part of that….so the answer to that question is a resounding YES!

  14. jianningwu says: Oct 2, 2012 10:33 AM

    Why do people who only say “0 rings blah blah” even watch the regular season if it is so unimportant?

    Just check the final score of the Superbowl each year and if “your”team didn’t win it, you just saved yourself a lot of apparently wasted time.

    If they did win, then feel good going about your life associating yourself with the team, meathead.

    For the Eagles? Hope springs eternal and I’ll be watching.

  15. phillyphannn83 says: Oct 2, 2012 10:40 AM

    I wasnt aware that winning the superbowl affected this year’s standings. The past isnt going to help anyone win this year and all that matters right now is this season. And this season Philly is the only team in 1st place!! Keep lookin up!!

    That’s an excellent idea, lets not cheer or root for our teams during the regular season, because the games are meaningless, right? You had a point SOMEWHERE in that rambling ranting raving post of yours, but it got lost in the absurdity of that remark. Of course rings are the ultimate goal, but acting like Eagles fans are dumb for being ecstatic about an immensely exciting win over a division rival is just beyond moronic. THINK before you post.

  18. cometkazie says: Oct 2, 2012 11:09 AM

    Finally, some sportsmanship showing!

  19. dominicthedonkey says: Oct 2, 2012 11:22 AM

    4 titles to NONE. You can have your regular season wins! On Superbowl Sundays the gmen rule and the Sheagle fans are left out on the cold in Filthy-delphia (the city of brotherly and sister love!!!).

    “Why do people who only say “0 rings blah blah” even watch the regular season if it is so unimportant?”

    Ever hear the old saying nobody remembers who lost the Super Bowl? It’s true, there is one team that goes down in the history books at the end of the year. Nothing else matters. Obviously watching regular season games is fun for fans, but 5 years from now no one is going to say “remember when the Eagles beat the Giants in week 4 after Larry Tynes missed a 54 yard field goal?” But, they will talk about the 2 Giants Super bowls in a span of 5 years for years to come.

  21. mazblast says: Oct 2, 2012 11:31 AM

    They can’t settle it. Settling it and being professionals doesn’t sell nearly as many papers or generate nearly as much talk on radio, TV, and the Internet. Chaos, dissension, and anger must rule.

  22. jmota222 says: Oct 2, 2012 11:42 AM

    As long as the giants keep winning Super Bowls I have no prob with shady and the eagles beating the gmen during regular season !!! Like to see shady McCoy step up when his team needs him most

    Eddardhousestark,
    true, not many will remember the missed field goals.. or who did what, but i sure as hell will tell you, any Eagles fan remembers 2 yrs ago when the Giants were spanking the eagles into the 4th quarter by 28pts with 7:50 left on the clock…
    And guess what..
    yeah, if you’re a giants fan, you remember that one too..
    But who won the superbowl 3yrs ago?

    if your not an eagles or giants fan, then shut the hell up about watching these games. cause either one of our fan base looks forward to 6 games per season with more enthusiasm than most teams can get all year. Eagles, cowboys, giants, Skins.. 6 games for each team that most times are way more exciting than many of the superbowls I’ve seen…

    I do have a lot more respect for the Giants fans and even Cowboys fans than any other teams. (Me being an Eagles die hard) Cause at least they stay true to their teams. and there’s never any wavering.

    So go ahead Pats fans, or Fins, or bolts, or whoever you wanna throw in there, you’ll never get the fan base like the NFC east teams.. yes even the Skins..

  24. irishphilly87 says: Oct 2, 2012 11:47 AM

    The only eagles fans that “pump there chest” over winning 9 of the last 10 are the retards that give us a bad name. What true Eagles fans do are complain about our coach and our underachieving team. 5 nfc championships and no ring in the Andy Reid era. Him and Donovan choked every time. Another note, people run there mouth all the time about there “rings” and championships… NFL championships the Eagles own 3. Thats tied for 8th. Green Bay has 12, Chicago has 9, Giants have 8, then u have the cowboys, the 49ers, the redskins….. no one talks about how football is the ONLY sport to change there Championship name halfway through there existance… if that were the case in baseball the Yankees would have 5 championshionships in the 90′s and the on in 09′. It’s just annoying seeing Cowboy fans parade around about there 5 superbowl rings, congrats thats 2 more championships than the Eagles franchise, and the cowboys have won 1 playoff game in 17 years. Steelers fans won 4 back in the 70′s and parade around for 30 years until they won 2 more recently…. bottom line though, I know the Eagles have come up short the last 15 years and thats what true fans realize and no excuses.

  25. bobbyhoying says: Oct 2, 2012 11:50 AM

    I just don’t believe the players take this as seriously as everyone else. If I were a player, and had a friend on another team, I’d say outrageous things about him just to see what reporters would write a story. I’ll bet that goes on all the time in professional sports. These guys are just well paid entertainers.

  26. bobonmycob says: Oct 2, 2012 12:10 PM

    Giants fans are sad. All they can do is bring up the super bowl rings to make themselves feel better about getting outplayed. Your offense was at the 50 yard line for most of your drives and you still couldn’t get it done. So keep living in the past Giants fans and keep resorting to your super bowls when you have nothing else intelligent or witty to say.

    Eagles #1 in the division, now go back down into the basement of the NFC East giants. Did the smell of the Redskins fade yet?

  27. granadafan says: Oct 2, 2012 12:25 PM

    Yeah, it’s best not to anger a very large and powerful man whose job it is to hit you very hard. As if he needs MORE motivation to shove your head in the turf.

    If that’s what a “true fan” is, I’m quite happy to be left out of that group even though I’ve bled Eagle green for 35 years.

    Hey every team in the NFL that doesn’t have four rings – Even when the Giants lose they win because they have 4 rings, unless of course you are from Pittsburgh. Cmon Giant fans.. Come up with a real argument. Signed EVERYBODY

    Giants fans are and always will be illogical thinkers. They live in a rat packed disgusting state that they try and compare to our city. Hrmmmm comparing a state to a city… illogical thinking. It’s funny they show up in droves on an internet based website but you never see them standing tall in our stadium.

    Great victory for the Eagles and awesome ankle snapping…err… MCL spraining running game!

    Super Bowl XXV – Bills lost to the Giants, missing a very makeable FG as time ran out.

    The regular season games are very important to the gambling industry, so these games do have a sector that depends on them a good deal.

  34. justintuckrule says: Oct 2, 2012 3:53 PM

    @Eagles fans – The NFL is likely to air an instant replay of this game. I apologize for not knowing what the replay is actually called b/c Giants’ fans don’t tape reg. season gaves. On the other hand, us Giants’ fans know that you will all scurry to your DVRs, record it making sure to override your wives’ recording of Project Runway, “lock it” so it never gets accidentally erased and beat to it before you go nighty night for the next 11 months. Now, if the shoe was on the other foot and we won….this game wouldn’t register a blip on our DVR radars. Know why? We would have absolutely nowhere on our DVRs to store this non-descript game. Most of our DVRs are already stock full of America’s Games, full airings of instant classics vs. GB, SF and Pats and a host of other crowning achievement games.

    __________________________________________

    For Super Bowl 25, people need to stop saying that Scott Norwood missed a very makeable field goal, as if it was luck that he missed/the field goal was easy. Prior to that kick Norwood was 32-52 from 40-49 yards out. That is 61.5%. Does that sound automatic? And it was on the right hash marks. Last but not least, Norwood wasn’t a good kicker. Had it have been Steve Christie who missed, then that’s another story.

  36. justintuckrule says: Oct 2, 2012 5:06 PM

    @situs – You gave Norwood too much credit. He was much worse on grass. Also, half of the tards on this site weren’t even mature sperm specimens when XXV was played. They think all kickers are like Janikowski and anything 55 in is money.

    Imagine Eagle fans if they won the SB last year?

  42. steveduch says: Oct 3, 2012 8:47 PM

    Its funny how Giants fans and alot of people originally from New York say how bad Pennsylvania is, but its bad because of how many New Yorkers live here now. But beyond that, I listen to several sports talk shows and you always here Giants, Cowboys, Redskins fans calling in when their team is doing good, but you never hear from them when they lose, WHY is that, too ashamed to be a Giants or Cowboys fan? I am not ashamed to admit that I am jealous that you have rings, I would love Philly to get theirs, and can’t wait for that to happen. Whoever said that the regular season doesn’t matter is just rediculous, I mean how do the teams get to the show? Its through the regular season, also if it wasn’t for the regular season and the 6 division games then who goes to the playoffs? It does matter at the end os the regular season and if the Eagles beat the Gnats (sorry) Giants 2 times and they are in a tie breaker then guess who wins the division? People who say that are just bus jumpers and the team that is doing the best they follow. Say what you want about your rings but this is a new year and we are 1 up on the Giants!!!!!!
