Is McCoy’s tweet part of a sinister plot?

LeSean McCoy might be an evil genius. The Eagles running back, responding to a story about Osi Umenyiora wanting a new deal, tweeted that the Giants DE is soft, overrated and the third best lineman on New York’s defensive line.

At face value, it looks like McCoy might have lost his mind. Even his own teammate Jamar Chaney responded via Twitter with “Lol. Boi u a fool.”

And McCoy might be, considering that Umenyiora had a team-high 11.5 sacks and a league-leading 10 forced fumbles last season. But you aren’t fooling me, LeSean.

It’s apparent that McCoy is merely trying to play the Giants for a fool. By making such an outlandish claim, the Giants could be motivated to take McCoy’s advice and let Umenyiora go.

Then, the Eagles can swoop in and pick him up. What a genius plan. Only if this really was his plan.

Something says this might be giving McCoy a little bit too much credit.
