This slow lockout summer Friday needed a little something meaningless to write about. Thankfully, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora are here to help.

Let’s start at the beginning, all the way back on Thursday.

When a report surfaced that Umenyiora was unhappy with the Giants about “broken promises” related to his contract, McCoy chimed in on Twitter that Osi was “overrated n soft.” He called Umenyiora the third best defensive lineman on his team.

Umenyiora responded Friday through Mark Viera of the New York Times, calling McCoy a “Chihuahua” and “Lady GaGa.”

“She can say whatever he wants about it,” Umeyiora says.

Yes, apparently the entire Giants defense calls McCoy “Lady Gaga.” Delightful.

Giants fans attending this season’s Giants-Eagles game can take it from here.
