Osi, Shut Up and Play

Football isn't my prime passion, but I am a long time Giants fan and have followed them from Yankees Stadium and Charlie Conerly, Rosey Grier and Sam Huff until today.  This posting is apart from baseball which  goes back further than the football Giants and is my first love (God, Country and Family aside).   

I am tired of Osi Umenyiora and his whining.  In 2005 he signed a 5 year 41 M extention which runs through the 2012 season.  He signed this contract midway through the 4 year deal that paid him 2.5 M.  The 15 M guaranteed was the highest amount ever offered to a player with only three years of service time.  Through the first three years Umenyiora was paid 21 M of the front loaded contract despite missing the entire 2008 season.  This year Umenyiora is earning 3.1 M and may take the field for the first time this season, but not without adding his own brand of distraction.  Osi Umenyiora is “constantly disrespected” as the Giants prepare to play the Cardinals

The Giants and Tom Coughlin have a history with dysfunctional players, remember this was where Plaxico Burress disrespected the Giants structure before shooting himself.  Next year, the last in Umenyiora’s current contract will pay him 4.0 M.  That will offer no comfort to his feelings of bitterness.  I hope he has a great season and I hope the Giants trade him ASAP after the last game and dump this whining player on someone else.  BTW, Osi Umenyiora could have been one the Giants all time greats, if he didn’t have a persecution complex.
