Pro football always cause a heated debate, especially when you have two teams with a long history of feuding with each other. The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants have clashed in the past and they have quite a war in store for them once again.
Troy Aikman recently spoke to 96.7 FM The Ticket in Dallas where he offered up some interesting opinions on the Cowboys and Giants upcoming clash on the gridiron. He said that the Giants are bound to have a challenge against a strong offense from the Cowboys.
The amount of pressure that this [Cowboys] offense puts on an opponent — because they are so explosive that there’s a lot of pressure for an opposing offense to feel that they’ve got to go do something every time they have the ball. And if they don’t, they’re going to be down two scores.
That’s going to be the challenge for the Giants. They’re coming off a big win, but they’re in my opinion — and I understand in the NFL anybody can beat anybody and all that — they’re [the Giants] not in Dallas’ class, in my opinion.
According to Jordan Ranaan, the Giants locker room listened to what Aikman said. This apparently lit a bit of a fire under them to prove the Hall of Famer wrong.
The Giants locker room has taken notice to Troy Aikman’s quote that they “aren’t in Dallas’ class.” Perhaps 21st-century virtual bulletin board material. Joe Judge downplayed it. “I don’t think we need any external motivation to help us do our jobs,” he said.
We’ll have to see how this game plays out. There is certainly a lot more pressure to perform at this point.
