The New York Giants have come under fire by some former players, particularly Antonio Pierce and Michael Strahan who have openly criticized the injured players for not stepping up.

ESPN New York‘s Ian Begley reports that Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora can handle criticism by the media and fans, but he does not like when former players and teammates start to open there mouths.  He is of course talking about Antonio Pierce and Michael Stahan who have recently spoken out about how the injured players, like Umenyiora, need to step up unless it’s a season ending injury.

It’s very, very disappointing. I can understand when the media does it. I’m OK with that; that’s their job. These other guys … they’ve played the game before so they know what it’s like. So to hear them come out and say the things that they’ve said, it’s very, very disappointing.


The thing that gets to Osi the most when it comes to those two openly criticizing the injured players is the fact that he knows that they use to miss games with various injuries during their careers.  Umenyiora has been battling injuries all season, while Brandon Jacobs has been nursing a sprained knee.  Justin Tuck who was criticized by Strahan via twitter is dealing with groin and neck injuries.
