The back and forth between the NY Giants and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been relentless.
Yesterday Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka fired another shot when stated “the Giants have been whupping the Cowboys ass for a long time now.”
NFL.com reported that today Jerry Jones responded to Kiwanuka, and sounded a little humbled.
“I agree with him, and the only thing I’m saying is that I’ll never get used to it,” Jones told USA Today. “It is tough (being) on the outside looking in,” Jones said of the Giants‘ titles. “That’s the way I felt when I got in the NFL as an owner. I didn’t want to be on the outside, looking in.
“The Giants are an inspiration … it is opening the NFL season in front of such a high-profile forum …the Wednesday night game â?¦ all of that is there. We have that kind of respect for them.”
I think Jones is trying to put the brakes on the runaway train that has been his mouth. The season opener is less than a week away and we all get the point.
