07:58 AM ET 09.26 | Just in time for Giants- Eagles, LeSean McCoy is back to taking shots at Osi Umenyiora. "Yeah this is for real -- like I don't like Osi," McCoy said in comments released by ESPN prior to the show [E:60]. "I don't know how he feels. He might think it's a game, but I don't play them type of games." ... Umenyiora took the high road in his response to McCoy calling him "one of the greatest running backs in the league" and saying "I wish him much continued success." As for being a "ballerina"? Well, Umenyiora said, McCoy is "probably right." "I might be a ballerina in a Giants uniform," Umenyiora said. ... "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."

Time for real refs. Goofdell put out a gag order about his replacements.

Until the League fixes that mess, this season is a joke. A bad one.

McCoy is a dummy. Like Osi needed even more motivation against the Eagles. He usually shows up against them as it is.

This is philly, the Eagles are alway picked to win the division and mostly don't make the playoffs and if they do, they don't win it all, contrary to the GMEN. The Phillies always takin and perdicted also are WS champs and usually don't get the job done , Hamels, Lee, Halladay, so what esle is new? When they face the Yankees, the world saw the end results. The Sixers, well, lets just say they now have Bynum, so I'm sure they will get a lotta media attention and dumbfoundness...ya think!
