Cowboys’ Linebacker Brown Dies In Auto Accident, Teammate Brent Charged With Intoxication Manslaughter
Dallas Cowboys practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown was killed in a one-car accident Saturday and teammate Josh Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter.
The weakness within the division is a good thing for the Giants this season. But the great competition that has been a staple of the NFC East for years is now a part of history.
Mark Sanchez can still win in the NFL. He just can’t win in New York. Sanchez has been set up to go down for two years.
You can look at the standings and get a pretty good read on the teams that are going to be in the playoffs at the conclusion of the year. But several of those teams still have a lot to prove.
It’s that time of year again — the time when NFL coaches are on the hot seat.
Eli Manning and the New York Giants are 3-0 at Cowboys Stadium, but the Cowboys aren’t letting that get to them.
The NFL season has not even reached the halfway point, but the fire under the seat of 10 head coaches is already quite hot.
“We’re going to go out there, we’re going to play our game,” Rolle said. “We’re going to play very efficient, we’re going to play very confident and we’re going out there ready to be some head-busters.”
This is the game Jerry Jones has been waiting for. He delivered the invitation heard ’round the NFL — and the Giants are set to RSVP.
“I’m going to keep writing until someone writes me back,” shareholder Matt Fegarsky told CBSNewYork.com, “or until this gets resolved.”
Jerry Jones has added his two cents to the great kneel-rush debate. But to the Cowboys owner, it’s not about the rush — it’s about the kneel.
It’s only one game, sure. The first, to boot. But the old issues that nearly doomed the Giants’ Super Bowl run in the womb of the regular season cropped up once again.
The Giants have the motivation of opening at home in front of their raucous fans against a hated and disrespectful rival. It all adds up to a Giants win in the opener, and it shouldn’t even be that close.
When it comes to entertaining remarks, Jones might be the best in football. But the Cowboys owner didn’t have much in the way of a response Tuesday to Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka.
For Eli Manning and the Super Bowl champion Giants, Wednesday night will be their first chance to silence the critics and detractors who have sounded off repeatedly this offseason.
