NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Super Bowl is now a distant memory and the meat off the offseason hasn’t yet begun.

The Giants are coming off a disappointing 7-9 campaign in which they missed the playoffs for the fourth time in five years.

So it’s safe to say that, at this moment, Big Blue fans aren’t feeling too great.

But this should make them feel at least a bit better.

On Monday, Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones admitted that the G-Men made him cry six years ago.

Let that sink in, Giants fans.

The Dallas Morning News reported that Jones, who also serves as the team’s president and general manager, has cried after three Cowboys losses. Most recently, he shed tears during the 2007 season (2008 playoffs) when his 13-3 team lost to the Giants, 21-17, in the NFC divisional playoffs at Texas Stadium.

The Giants were the No. 5 seed and the Cowboys were the No. 1 seed, and the Giants proceeded to defeat the Packers in the NFC title game and then the 18-0 Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

That loss was too much for Jones to handle.

“That’s where I went to the place I used to go to when they would call and tell me that I had just lost all of my money on a dry hole,” Jones told DallasNews.com.

According to The Dallas Morning News, Jones also cried in January of 1995 when the Cowboys lost to the 49ers in the NFC title game, and again in 2002 when Dallas was edged by the Texans in the season opener.

Interesting, coming from a man who two years ago said that his team would “beat the Giants’ a—-.”

The Cowboys beat the Giants in both of their two meetings this past season, but Dallas finished the season 8-8 and missed the playoffs.
