On the heels of San Diego Chargers center Nick Hardwick clowning on New England Patriots defensive end Richard Seymour's supposed dirty antics, a New York Giants player is doing the same for Seymour's teammate.
NY Giants stud defensive end Osi Umenyiora (a.k.a. Sack/Booty Master) said Patriots left tackle Matt Light "did a couple of things he shouldn't have done" in the Week 17 matchup between the teams.
Umenyiora's comments, said in an interview with Bob Costas on HBO's "Inside the NFL," were not as reviled as Hardwick's, but still pointed.
“It was a good matchup the last time,” Umenyiora said last night. “I mean, I think I got him a couple of times. It was a war out there, and to be honest with you, I’m not quite sure that he thought he was going to see me again because of some of the things he did and said. . . . But you know, unfortunately, he does have to see me again.”
Interviewer Bob Costas pressed Umenyiora to explain specifically what Light was doing.
“Hitting after the delay and trying to . . . I don’t know if he was trying to intimidate me. I don’t know what he was trying to do,” Umenyiora said. “But he did a couple of things that he shouldn’t have done, and you know, now we are really going to go at it.”
Forget about Tom Brady's boot (we're going on the record as saying Gisele is not that hot, by the way), the war of words in the lead-up to the Super Bowl has begun!
It'd been a treat if Umenyiora's comments were made in a similiar tirade like Hardwick's were about Seymour.
