The jabs continued Saturday as Giants wide receiver Steve Smith issued a reminder to LeSean McCoy.

On his Twitter account, Smith posted the following message with a link to the photo you see to the left:

The nerve of certain youngins running their mouth. Please don't forget [photo link]

He later added:

Eagles have a great team as do we. They've had our number lately but until you win something major I don't wanna hear it. #endthelockout

Smith's comments came a day after Osi Umenyiora responded strongly to McCoy calling him out during the week.

Smith battled injuries last year, but has 20 catches for 201 yards in four career games against the Eagles. He's part of a wide receiver group that Dan Graziano of ESPN.com ranks the best in the NFC East.

Graziano had the Cowboys second and the Eagles third:

As for the Eagles... hey, I love what DeSean Jackson brings, and I'm a huge fan of Jeremy Maclin's speed. But I can't buy Jackson as a true No. 1 when he only caught 47 passes last year and, as Williamson points out, caught three or fewer in half of his team's games.
