Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora was asked on 98.7 ESPN Radio if the Patriots were the best team in football after handing the Texans a 42-14 loss on Sunday night. Umenyiora boldly responded that the Giants, not the Patriots, were the best team.

He clarified his best-in-football claim by saying:

“We’ve just been inconsistent. So if we can play the way we’re capable of playing – the way we played against San Francisco, the way we played against Green Bay, the way we played against the Saints for the majority of the game – I don’t think there’s a team that’s better than us at all.”

Under Tom Coughlin, the Giants have adopted a kind of “Talk is cheap” mantra, but it seems like Osi Umenyiora is not abiding by that one.

Come on...every team can say 'if we play the way we can' but the real truth is great teams play that way every game...
