Video: Jerry Jones gets fired up
Jerry Jones is a helluva lot better salesman than he is a GM, that’s for sure.
Back when the Dallas Cowboys opened training camp in Oxnard, Calif., in July, Jones boasted to the fans “I want you to come to [Cowboys Stadium] and watch us beat the New York Giants’ ass, OK?”
The Cowboys stunned NFL fans by beating the Giants on the road to open the NFL season, but they failed to make good on Jones’ training camp declaration. They lost to the Giants 29-24 at home on Sunday and are now 0-4 at home against them since the new stadium opened.
Jones’ boast also proved to be motivation for the Giants’ players.
“Yeah, yeah, I remember that very well,” wide receiver Victor Cruz said in the week leading up to the game.
“Oh, definitely,” Ahmad Bradshaw said of whether he remembered what Jones said. “We take pride in the billboard postings and different things and what’s motivation to our team. We just use it all for motivation for the game.”

Cruz continues to hope something will be finalized soon.

The love-hate relationship in New York isn’t only by way of the media; it’s with many of the fickle fans too. It remains a metropolis where it’s hard to be understood no matter how blatant you and your actions are.

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw is active for Week 8 vs. Dallas.
Bradshaw was nursing a foot injury through the week, but was expected to be good to go for game day. He should be safe to plug into lineups as a No. 2 fantasy RB.

Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz are both viable fantasy options and generally are must start commodities when healthy. The fact that they play together, on their real team, or your virtual one, shouldn’t change that.
Responding to fantasy football start/sit questions is an invitation for disrespect. It is, generally, a thankless task (just ask Brad Evans @YahooNoise) and one where...
Here we are — the halfway point of the NFL season and six weeks away from the start of the fantasy postseason for many. Injuries are making lineup...
