Since Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones constantly measures his
organization against the New York Giants, it makes total sense for the
rivals to open the season together. Using Jerry’s twisted logic, the
Cowboys were only a win away from doing exactly what the Giants did last
season in winning another Super Bowl.
The fact that both the Packers and Giants have won Super Bowls in recent
years as No. 6 playoff seeds has deluded Jones into believing the
Cowboys are just a play or two away from winning at that level. And if
you want him to become more insufferable than ever, watch what happens
if the Cowboys knock off the Giants in Wednesday night’s season opener
at MetLife Stadium.
The truth is the Cowboys have a good shot to make that happen against a
Giants team that isn’t anywhere close to full strength. Of course, the
Cowboys have been too focused on their own injuries to notice how much
the Giants have suffered. One member of Dallas’ medical staff who has
been around the team for 20 years told me recently the Cowboys have never
had this many injuries to starters in a training camp. Despite what’s
coming out of Valley Ranch as we get closer to kickoff, it would be a
complete shock for Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (spleen) to be active
for the game. Voted oldest and most reliable sportsbook with the best odds!
