After the Cowboys’ 36-31 win on Sunday night owner Jerry Jones accused the Giants of faking injuries to slow down Dallas’ offense saying “It was so obvious it was funny.” Well Giants safety Antrel Rolle wasn’t laughing. “I don’t know what kind of faking he saw but if guys go down and never return to the game obviously they’re not faking” Rolle said on a conference call with reporters on Monday. “They got the win. He just needs to be satisfied with the win because a game like that will never happen to us again. … I could care less what Jerry has to say obviously. When we face those guys again it will be a different outcome.” Leading 6-3 late in the second quarter the Cowboys began using a no-huddle offense but were soon slowed by Giants injuries on back-to-back plays. Linebacker Dan Connor was sidelined with a neck injury and never came back while defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins came out with an apparent shoulder injury but soon returned. Coincidence? Jones thinks not. “I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that” Jones said with a smile and a wink. “No it was so obvious it was funny. It wasn’t humorous because we really wanted the advantage and knew we could get it if we could get the ball snapped.” The Giants’ defense was predictably booed by a crowd of more than 85000 fans at AT&T Stadium but no penalties were called. Cowboys tight end Jason Witten emphatically told side judge Ronald Torbert that Jenkins was “faking it” while quarterback Tony Romo saved his sarcasm for after the game. “I thought we got them moving a lot and got them pretty tired during that stretch” said Romo. “They obviously had a bunch of injuries in that stretch. Tough break I know. Seemed to come back pretty good after that though.”
