OSI UMENYIORA is 30 years old, but acts like he's 2. On Sunday, the Giants defensive end rekindled a feud with LeSean McCoy by sending the Eagles running back a tweet that said, "Happy Mothers Day Lesean Mccoy! Enjoy your special day!!" Hmmmm. Wonder how long Osi has been saving that little gem? McCoy responded by tweeting, "Lol let the beef begin. " Actually, the "beef" began in June. Umenyiora was in a contract dispute with the Giants and McCoy tweeted that the two-time Pro Bowler was "overrated" and "soft.

NEW ORLEANS - Drew Brees threw four touchdown passes as the New Orleans Saints torched the collapsing New York Giants, 49-24, on Monday night. Brees completed 24 of 38 attempts for 363 yards, and the Saints raised their record to 8-3 and took over first place in the NFC South. The Giants (6-5) lost their third straight and took a beating on both the scoreboard and on the field. Defensive end Osi Umenyiora went out with a sprained ankle and receiver Hakeem Nicks was rocked by a vicious collision with Saints rookie safety Isa Abdul-Quddus.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here is how things panned out yesterday: 1. The turnover battle: Going into yesterday's game, the Eagles had scored just 53 points off of 18 turnovers. Against the Giants, however, they scored two touchdowns that were set up by first- and second-quarter interceptions and a field goal set up by a third-quarter fumble recovery. The Giants, who came into the game having scored 65 points on 13 turnovers, got a field goal after recovering a fumble in the third quarter.

Houston Texans receiver Andre John-son wants a new contract. The Pro Bowl wideout skipped the team's first voluntary practice of the offseason yesterday and no one is sure when he will join the team. Johnson has 5 years left on an 8-year contract worth $60 million that included $15 million in guarantees. The Texans restructured his first contract with 2 years remaining. General manager Rick Smith said the situation is "very difficult" because Johnson has so much time left on his current contract.

With the retirement of seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan, the job of repeating as Super Bowl champions was going to be difficult for the New York Giants. Now it might be near impossible with the news that fellow Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora is out for the season with a knee injury. An MRI yesterday showed that Umenyiora tore the lateral meniscus in his left knee in a preseason game against the archrival Jets on Saturday night. The two-time Pro Bowler will have surgery tomorrow at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

ARK HERZLICH has already learned that it's tough being a New York Giant when you grew up in the Philadelphia area. Shortly after signing with the Giants, the Conestoga product joked that he could not find anywhere to buy any Giants gear. Herzlich, the undrafted Boston College linebacker, reportedly chose the Giants over the Eagles and Ravens yesterday. No matter the team, Herzlich will continue to inspire. The ACC defensive player of the year as a junior, Herzlich was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a form of bone cancer.

It isn't just the 1-3 Eagles and 0-4 New York Giants' losing records that have taken some of the steam out of Sunday's matchup between the longtime divisional rivals. "It's sucks because Osi's not there, so it makes it a little different," LeSean McCoy said of Osi Umenyiora, his frequent sparring partner. The former Giants defensive end is with the Falcons now. While Umenyiora isn't what he once was, his absence from what was once the most feared line in the NFL has been symbolic for a unit that is struggling this season.

The Kansas City Chiefs hired former Vikings coach Brad Childress, reuniting him with Andy Reid. Childress, who spent last season as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns, will be the Chiefs' spread game analyst and work on special projects. He spent five years as the Minnesota head coach (2006-10), a stint that included two division titles (2008-09). The team was 12-4 in 2009. Childress previously spent seven seasons, from 1999 to 2005, with the Eagles, where he worked with Reid.

THE ATLANTA Falcons have found a replacement for John Abraham by reaching an agreement with free-agent defensive end Osi Umenyiora on a 2-year contract. The Falcons released the 34-year-old Abraham, who led the team with 10 sacks in 2012, on March 1. With the 31-year-old Umenyiora, the Falcons have a slightly younger replacement at defensive end. Umenyiora had only six sacks for the Giants in 2012. He had a career-high 14 1/2 sacks in 2005, but has reached double figures in only one of the last 4 years - 11 1/2 in 2010.

Recent history: Eagles eked out a 19-17 victory over the Giants on Sept. 30; the teams split last season's series, but the Eagles swept the 2009 and 2008 series against the G-Men. OFFENSE Eagles: 356.5 yards per game (12th) Giants: 352.7 yards per game (14th) Quarterback Eagles: Michael Vick hasn't played in almost 7 weeks and almost certainly is rusty, both physically and mentally. He had 14 turnovers in nine starts before being sidelined with a concussion, and faces a defense that is 2nd in the league in takeaways.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eli Manning and the New York Giants could not provide a happy ending Sunday for the storm-ravaged fans who came to see them play the Pittsburgh Steelers at MetLife Stadium. "There are so many bigger things going on around here that what we do is not as important as real life," Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said after throwing for two touchdowns in a 24-20 comeback victory.

RANDALL Cunningham never got it, but Rodney Peete learned. Donovan McNabb sometimes understood. Ty Detmer and Jeff Garcia, bless their hearts, knew it from birth. Quarterbacks rarely win games. Often, and much more easily, they lose them. Michael Vick, finally, is learning this. Never before has there been a weapon like Vick. Even now, at 32, no one combines arm strength and foot speed and elusiveness. Sorry, Donovan, and Randall, and Fran Tarkenton and Steve Young.

After playing a game last week in which nothing went right, the Eagles came out Sunday night against the New York Giants and looked intent on playing a game in which nothing went anywhere. Fortunately for them, so did the Giants. Any time the game begins with nine straight punts, it is clearly not going to be a night in which the winner dominates, but one in which the winner figures out how to survive just a little bit better than the other guy. The Giants and the Eagles play them like this all the time.

EAGLES RUNNING BACK LeSean McCoy is having a little fun again with Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, with whom he has feuded over the years. McCoy, in an ESPN interview, said: "Osi, to be honest, he is a good player. I think he thinks that he is better than what he really is. I think he is a ballerina in a Giants uniform. Other than that, that is all I got to say about Osi. " The McCoy-Umenyiora and McCoy feud began in 2011, when McCoy tweeted that Unemyiora is "Overrated n soft 3rd best d-line on his team honestly.

ON FRIDAY, we reported that former Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor was auctioning his Super Bowl XXV ring because he needed cash. That turned out to be wrong. A representative of Taylor told Fox Sports that the Hall of Famer had given the ring to his son, TJ, and was unaware that it was being sold. Another person unaware of that fact was Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who we also wrote about on Friday. Umenyiora had admitted it was insensitive to think that comparing LeSean McCoy to a woman was an insult.
