The Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants and unveiled a bit of a hurry-up offense during the second and third quarters of the game. Giants linebacker Dan Connor went down to an injury and stopped the clock. After the next play Giants defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins sat in the backfield while the team tried to get to the line of scrimmage. Play was stopped as a result again.
“I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that,” Jones said when asked if Giants players were faking injuries. “I didn’t know everybody could.
“It was so obvious it was funny. It wasn’t humorous because we really wanted the advantage and knew we could get it if we could get the ball snapped.”
The Giants are denying these allegations.
“It’s absolutely not true,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said.
“Both of those players were injured,” Coughlin insisted in a Monday conference call. “Connor never returned to the game. And Cullen was in a position where he needed to regroup. So that wasn’t orchestrated at all.”
“I don’t know what kind of faking they saw, but if a guy doesn’t return to the game, I don’t know how that’s faking,” Giants safety Antrel Rolle said Monday. “They got the win, and he just needs to be satisfied with the win, because a game like that will never happen to us again. I could care less what Jerry has to say. When we face those guys again, it will be a different outcome.”
