Osi Umenyiora believes teammates come before team

Wow, interesting comment from Osi Umenyiora on this week's "Inside the NFL" - debuting at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Showtime. Here he is on Tom Coughlin's recent disciplining of Plaxico Burress:

"I agree with what Tom Coughlin did. You definitely have to take a stance at some point with a guy like that. But I don’t agree with the way some players responded, coming out and openly supporting the team or openly supporting the organization as far as the discipline for Plaxico Burress is concerned.

"You can never come out and defend the team against your own teammate. He’s the guy who’s going to go out there, blood, sweat, and tears for you. At the end of the day, the team is going to look for your replacement, while your teammates are there for you for the rest of your life."
