Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is having a little fun again with Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, with whom he has feuded over the years.

McCoy, in an ESPN interview, said: “Osi, to be honest, he is a good player. I think he thinks that he is better than what he really is. I think he is a ballerina in a Giants uniform. Other than that, that is all I got to say about Osi.”

The McCoy-Umenyiora and McCoy feud began in 2011, when McCoy tweeted that Unemyiora is  “Overrated n soft 3rd best d-line on his team honestly.”

Umenyiora called McCoy, "Lady Gaga” and “a little girl.”
