We heard a lot of talk from the New York Giants throughout the week last week. For the most part, the Dallas Cowboys took the high road. Jason Garrett’s team decided to do its talking on the field, and Dallas came away with a huge win on the road against their biggest rival. Naturally, some of the Cowboys players threw the Giants’ smack talk in their face after the game.
“They talked and they talked and they talked,” cornerback Orlando Scandrick, who kept Victor Cruz in check, told Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post. “I’ve never in my life heard a team that was 4-6 talk like that. We were 5-5, and we knew we had no room to talk.”
Last week, Jason Pierre-Paul said the Giants were going to “hunt” Tony Romo. He also said there would be “blood spilled” during the matchup, which may have simply been a reference to what he anticipated would be a hard-fought game. Still, Scandrick ripped him for it.
“I don’t know what the hell that was,” Scandrick said. “You just need to be quiet sometimes and do your talking with your play. I feel like it started as soon as the game ended for them last Sunday. Jason Pierre-Paul was like, ‘There’s going to be bloodshed.’ Did he even record a stat on the final stat sheet?’”
Dallas defensive tackle Jason Hatcher, who sacked Eli Manning twice, also took aim at Pierre-Paul.
