Osi-McCoy feud is over

Saying that the war of words between he and Eagles running back LeSean McCoy "got to be too much," Osi Umenyiora announced a truce Tuesday on ESPN Radio in New York. "Every time you talked about me or him, you talked about that silly nonsense," he said. "It was about time that ended and I'm glad all that stuff is over with."

Umenyiora would not say who initiated the détente, but McCoy, in his spot on WIP in Philadelphia, said it was Umenyiora: "After the game [Umenyiora] said, 'Hey man, 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.' "

 

Week 17 already circled

The Giants are 0-2 in the division for the first time since 1996. "I'm concerned, but we have [four] games to go," coach Tom Coughlin said.

Said Eli Manning, "Everybody knows we're going to see Philadelphia again the last game of the regular season. I have a feeling that's going to be a big game for us."

Brown's role limited

Andre Brown played in only nine offensive snaps and had just five carries Sunday night. Ahmad Bradshaw, meanwhile, had 13 carries in his 58 snaps.

The Giants had 94 and 125 rushing yards in the two games Brown was more involved in, but had just 57 Sunday, their lowest output since they ran for 29 against the Eagles last November. Coughlin, though, seems willing to stick with Bradshaw. "I have no problems with the way it turned out," he said of the play distribution.
