Jerry Jones promises the Dallas Cowboys will “beat the Giants' asses"
Surely, Jerry Jones must be suffering from Amnesia or something similar for he declared in front of 5,000 Dallas Cowboys fans, "Y'all should come to Cowboys Stadium and watch us beat the Giants' asses."
The New York Giants have become comfortable at playing the underachievers at the start of each season, but drastically progressing to become the Super Bowl Champions three-times during the past five years. Last season the New York Giants were 9-7 before rising to their Super Bowl legacy in January and things took a similar course in the 2007 season when they were at 10-6.
The Dallas Cowboys had a Super Bowl drought after their 1995 victory and since then the team has only two playoffs wins to brag about. A replay of that on the on the Dallas Cowboy’s newly installed world’s largest and most technically advanced video board will certainly jog Jerry Jones’ memory.
Jerry Jones may try to prove his argument with September 5 season opener at New York Giants’ MetLife Stadium. The Dallas Cowboys will get another chance at the game when they host the New York Giants at the Cowboy’s Stadium on October 28. The Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to play eight home games this season.
During their last meeting at the New York Giants’ turf, the Dallas Cowboys suffered a 31-14 loss. Eli Manning was a large part of the obstacle for the Dallas Cowboys last season after he threw for 746 yards, with five touchdowns over just two games. Since then the Dallas Cowboys have been strengthening their cornerback corps by trading picks to move up in drafts to secure former LSU player Morris Claiborne. The Dallas Cowboys also signed cornerback Brandon Carr to a five-year contract worth $50.1 million, as well as finalizing deals with free agents Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings to improve their offensive line. With that the Dallas Cowboys are ready for some action being led on by their 69-year-old owner Jerry Jones.
“That’s what he said? I like it,” said cornerback Brandon Carr. “I’m right with him. We all feel the same way. You’ve got to go into each game thinking you’re going to dominate the opposing team.”
"What's he supposed to say?" stated linebacker Victor Butler regarding Jerry Jones’ bold declaration. "He's got a lot of pride in his team. I'm behind him 100%."
But not everyone is as daring or delusional as Jerry Jones to venture into unchartered territory. Although Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett believed that Jerry Jones was entitled to make such statements being the boss and owner of the franchise for the past 23-years, still he did not appear to share boss’ sentiments.
"We don't make any guarantees around here," Jason Garrett carefully put the situation. "We're going to work hard every day to put a great football team together. We're in the process of doing that."
