Keith Bulluck: LeSean McCoy Is an ‘Internet Gangster’
New York Giants linebacker Keith Bulluck is the latest to chime in on the Giants-Eagles saga between LeSean McCoy and Osi Umenyiora. To recap what happened, McCoy responded to a report that Umenyiora wants a new contract by saying Osi is soft and the third best lineman on the Giants. That didn’t sit well with Umenyiora who fired back by calling McCoy a “chihuahua” and saying the Giants nicknamed him “Lady Gaga.” Now one of his teammates has joined the fray.
Appearing on NFL Network, Bulluck was asked some questions about twitter and the McCoy-Umenyiora beef. That’s when he worked in the “internet gangster” line.
How about what Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had to say about the Giants’ Osi Umenyiora? Are McCoy’s teammates tweaked to see him generate this bulletin-board material? Does it matter?
KB: I don’t think that anyone on their team is irritated. I think it’s something that he chose to do on his own. Twitter’s an open format and you can get out there and say what you want. I bet (McCoy) wouldn’t really have those same words for Osi if Osi was standing in front of him. I know he wouldn’t have those same words.
Internet courage then?
KB: Internet gangster.
For those who don’t understand what that means, Bulluck is saying McCoy acts tough on the computer like a random commenter. He’s probably right about that. And I just never understood the comment to begin with. If Osi is only the third-best lineman on the team, who are the two guys better than him? Why don’t you answer that one for me, Lady Gaga.
(Me calling LeSean McCoy Lady Gaga is a perfect example of someone being an internet gangster)
