Jerry Jones: I Wanted the New York Giants!
Turns out Brandon Jacobs was right.
Maybe the Dallas Cowboys should've picked the Detroit Lions for their nationally televised lid-lifter Sunday night at Cowboys Stadium. But certainly, according to Jerry Jones, they could've.
Instead, Jones admitted to Newy Scruggs and I minutes ago on 105.3 The Fan that he did indeed pinpoint the New York Football Giants.
Me: "Did you hand pick the Giants?"
Jerry: "I did. I got to basically have real input into who we'd be playing. And yes, I wanted it to be as highly competitive as it could possibly be as opposed to the other."
Translation: Screw blowing out the Lions, I want to beat the Giants.
I can see the headlines in the New York papers already ...
Jerry Jones: "I Want the Giants."
