NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s no other way to put it: The Giants have owned Dallas since early 2008.
Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr, new to the rivalry and “excited to get the first crack at the Super Bowl champions” on Wednesday, says there’s a Big Blue burnout in Big D.
“They’ve had great success, winning two Super Bowls in the past five years, however it is,” Carr said on Monday. “I think guys are kind of getting tired of seeing that. So now it’s to the point, guys are getting fed up. It’s pretty much the attitude, ‘When is it going to be our time?’ ”
En route to its first title in the Eli Manning era, New York beat Dallas in the ’08 playoffs. The Giants have since taken six of eight regular-season games against the Cowboys.
“It’s up to us to make it our time,” said Carr. “Go out there and prove to ourselves, prove to our coaches and to the world that we’re ready for this opportunity.”
While much has been made of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his “watch us beat the New York Giants’ a—” boast, it was Carr who started the trash talk way back early spring.
After signing with the Cowboys, Carr insisted Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz wouldn’t be doing any salsa dancing on his watch.
“Did he say that? I could care less,” Cruz responded leading into Wednesday’s opener, according to the New York Post. “If I score, I dance.”
We’ll see who gets the upper hand on Sept. 5, when the Giants and Cowboys kick off Week 1 of the NFL season.
“I got pumped up the second I found out our schedule and heard they were our first game,” said Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, according to the Post.
