The Dallas Cowboys were finally able to beat the New York Giants in their new stadium. It wasn’t with out a bit of controversy, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones alleged that the Giants were faking injuries to slow down their hurry-up offense. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin denied the rumors and his defensive back Antrel Rolle had some words for Jones as well.
“(Jones) just needs to be satisfied about the win because a game like that will never happen to us again,” Rolle said during a teleconference with reporters, via USAToday.com. “Even with six turnovers, they were still scratching their heads at the end of the game, hoping for a play they did get at the end of the game.
“I can care less what Jerry has to say. When we play those guys again, it will be a little different outcome.”
Jones backed off his comments later.
“They were hurt,” Jones told the New School show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “It was bad timing for us because we had them on the run. We knew they had lost their legs and were tired. But there’s not a lot that we can do about that but holler.
“What we got to realize is that there’s an area of gamesmanship that goes on, that works the clock. One of the areas that can work the clock is your injuries, relegating the clock, slow-footing and doing those kinds of things. That’s been around. That’s been a part of sports for a long time.”
