Jerry Jones agrees with Mathias Kiwanuka

Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka got the ball rolling toward Wednesday’s opener with the Cowboys on Thursday when he fired a shot at Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Responding to Jones’ vow to “beat the Giants’ asses” at a pep rally earlier this year, Kiwanuka said that Jones is just tired of watching the Giants do that to his team in recent years and opined that it must be “tough on the outside looking in on all of these championships lately.” Jones told USA TODAY on Friday that he thinks Kiwanuka hit the nail right on the head.

“I agree with him, and the only thing I’m saying is that I’ll never get used to it,” Jones said. “It is tough on the outside looking in. That’s the way I felt when I got in the NFL as an owner. I didn’t want to be on the outside, looking in.”

Jones and the Cowboys have been on the outside looking in since winning the Super Bowl after the 1995 season and his team has missed the playoffs in three of the last four seasons. Given the fact that the Giants have won two Super Bowls and appeared in a third since the last Cowboys championship, it isn’t hard to believe that he’s tired of watching the Giants succeed.

His team will have a chance to start turning things around in five days.

    “Giants have won two Super Bowls and appeared in a third since the last Cowboys championship…”

    to say that they “appeared” in the 3rd one (2000) is pretty accurate. They got blown out 34-7, so you can’t really say they “competed” in a 3rd one.

    @angrycorgi – game turned on a Giants TD called back. What should have been 7-7 turned into 14-0. Know your facts angry Cowbit fan.

    Game turned before it started considering the Giants were facing a top 2 all time defense. They would’ve lost that game no matter what.

    ====================================

    Just imagine how the Eagles feel watching the rest of the division get buttloads of Lombardi’s while they have zero.

    For all his faults, at least Jerry is honest.

    Only a fool would disagree, really. A fool or a liar. Everyone wants to be the best, but to be the best you got to beat the best. And right now, the Giants are the best…until someone dethrones them.

    You can talk all you want about lucky breaks and calls and this and that….but end of the day the Giants won it all.

    As a Cowboys fan, I always hate seeing all this “What if” and “ya but” talk from fans of every team (including the Cowboys).

    Talk is cheap until you walk it.

    Cowboys = Talented but lacking testicular fortitude.
    Eagles = Highly talented but pissed off God in some fashion.
    Redskins = The new Cardinals of the NFC East…

    And how many other teams have been on the outside looking in during that span?

    How many teams have been outside looking in forever?

    Jerry Jones should be worried Batman is going to hunt him down & kill him for killing his parents.
