Mario Williams Responds to Osi Umenyiora: ‘He’s a Coward’

Filed under: Giants, Texans, AFC SouthGiants defensive end Osi Umenyiora took exception to Pete Prisco’s offseason list of top 50 NFL players. Prisco named Mario Williams the top defensive end in the league and number 6 overall. Asked about the list, Umenyiora said that Williams at #6 was “just absolutely ridiculous.”

According to a recent article by Frisco, Williams was unamused with Umenyiora’s comments. Apparently, Williams saw Umenyiora a couple of days before those comments were made and they didn’t speak on this topic at all. Says Williams:
“He’s a coward. If he has anything to say to me, he should have said it to my face. You write that.”
Usually, Williams doesn’t respond to his critics, but yeah, it probably does sting a bit when a guy smiles to your face and then dogs you on a radio show.

The article goes on to justify Williams as a high pick in his list as the defensive end plays a premium position on the field, is young, physically a freak, productive, and still has a tremendous amount of potential. If NFL general managers were picking players off of another team, they would pick Williams as their first defensive player.

By all reports, Williams has had a tremendous camp and believes that he will have an even better season this year. It’s hard to disagree, especially to his face. He’s a big guy and all.
