Before the season, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones urged fans to “come to Cowboys Stadium and watch us beat the Giants’ asses.” Jones took some heat for those comments, but when the Cowboys beat the Giants in Week One, he appeared to be vindicated.
However, the Giants are now coming to Cowboys Stadium, and they say they remember Jones’ comments as they prepare to kick the Cowboys’ asses.
“We take pride in the billboard postings and different things, which motivates our team,” Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw told the Star-Ledger. “We just use it all for motivation for our team.”
Giants safety Antrel Rolle said his team is looking for payback in Dallas.
“Obviously Dallas beat us the first game of the season, so we are definitely looking for get-back,” Rolle said. “We’re definitely looking for some get-back at this point in time.”
The Giants are 3-0 at Cowboys Stadium, which opened in 2009, and Bradshaw said, “We have fun in Dallas stadium.” Jones’ comments may make winning in Dallas on Sunday a little more fun.
