It looks like the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys will have a score to settle on the field when they face off on Wednesday September 5th to kickoff the 2012 NFL regular season.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t too happy that Giants owner John Mara said that he wouldn’t win his grievance over losing $10 million in salary cap space.
On Tuesday, the NFL owners ratified the agreement between the league and the player’s union that’s taken away $36 million from the Washington Redskins and $10 million from the Cowboys.
Jones has insisted that his relationship with Mara is just fine but, “I would like to settle this on the field. Our relationship is good from my perspective.”
Jones was jokingly asked about a half time boxing match, he responded, “Not really. We will have all of this in the rear-view mirror hopefully by the time we get to this game.”
It will certainly be difficult for the Cowboys to go into MetLife Stadium on September 5th and win. Since the NFL instituted the season kickoff game in 2004, the defending Super Bowl champion is 8-0.

According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, New York Giants owner John Mara indicated that they’re working on getting a contract extension completed for head coach Tom Coughlin. It should be completed within the next four to six weeks.
After winning his second Super Bowl in four years, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Giants end up giving Coughlin a three to four year extension...
Brandon Jacobs finds new home with San Francisco 49ers. Jacobs signed a one-year deal with the NFC West champions. No. 27 was reportedly due a $500,000 roster bonus in March along with a $4.4 million base salary for 2012. Jacobs was released March 9 by the New York Giants after negations to reach an agreement on his restructured deal failed.
Jacobs will play a backup...
New York Giants owner John Mara knows what it is like to compete for the spotlight in the greatest city in the world. His Giants compete for the media attention and adoration of the fans with the New York Jets all the time. They battle it out on the field, but also for the headlines of the back pages of the New York newspapers. It goes on throughout the year, as the...
Giants coach Tom Coughlin wasn't exactly gloating. Well, maybe he was.
Asked at the NFC coaches breakfast about all the attention the New York Jets have been getting with their trade for Tim Tebow and contract extension for Mark Sanchez - in other words, their budding quarterback controversy - Coughlin simply smiled and said:
''You know who won the Super Bowl even if...

Winning a Super Bowl can allow a NFL head coach a little bit of candor in his public statements. Winning two super bowls allows a coach a ton.
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin took full advantage of that yesterday when he couldn’t resist taking a jab at the “cross-town” rival New York Jets and their recent player acquisitions (ie: Tebowmania in NYC). Here’s what...
According to the NFL Vice President of football communications Michael Signora, the New York Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys to kickoff the 2012 season on Wednesday September 5th.
This game will be a rematch of the Giants-Cowboys NFC East Championship game from the 2011 season that the Giants ended up winning. Of course after winning that game they won the division, clinched...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers have signed former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs.
Jacobs is the second former Giants player the 49ers have signed this offseason. They also signed wide receiver Mario Manningham about a week ago.
I’d be surprised if both Kendall Hunter and Anthony Dixon don’t end up ahead of Jacobs on the depth chart...
Looking to provide Quarterback Jay Cutler with another target, the Chicago Bears inked former New York Giants wide receiver Devin Thomas to a one-year deal. To be fair, Thomas is merely a complimentary piece, as he contributed mostly on special teams this past season in the Giants Super Bowl run. In fact, the 6-2, 221-pound Thomas came up big in the post-season [...]

Asked John Mara if NY was big enough for the Giants and Tim Tebow: "I don't know, but the David Carr press conference will be tomw, too."— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) March 25, 2012
Besides Tim Tebow using the word “excited” at a record-setting rate, the best part of his press conference actually stems from comments by Giants co-owner John Mara.
