Trash talk between the Cowboys and Giants is certainly not a new phenomenon. There is no love lost between the two teams, who always seem to put on a show when they get together during the season. One player who is particularly vocal about his hatred for the Cowboys is Justin Tuck. He has been known to trash the new Jerry Land and stress how much he hates Dallas. DeMarcus Ware has an interesting theory on why Tuck feels the need to do that.
“He says that because maybe he wants to play here,” Ware told reporters on Wednesday according to the NY Daily News. “Everybody wants to play for the Cowboys. If I wasn’t playing for the Cowboys I would call it that, too, because I want to play for them.”
I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with DeMarcus on this one. Hating your rival is hating your rival. When you play for the team that won a Super Bowl in 2007 and insist you hate the team that has not won one since the 1990s, envy probably isn’t the issue.
That being said, Dallas is certainly in a better position than New York at the moment. The Giants are 6-6 and traveling to Dallas to take on the 7-5 Cowboys. Having lost four straight, the G-Men would be able to write off the remainder of their season if they lose on Sunday night.
