Cowboys want their manhood back

By Ohm Youngmisuk

Our man in Dallas, Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, reports that Cowboys players were asked about the hatred some of the Giants -– namely Justin Tuck and Brandon Jacobs -- have for them.

Jacobs makes it no secret that he despises the Cowboys.

"That's him," cornerback Mike Jenkins said of Jacobs. "That’s what you get from him. He is a bully."

The Cowboys admit, though, that they need to stop allowing the Giants to push them around in their own house. The Giants have won the two meetings at the sparkling Cowboys Stadium.

"I hate anytime that we play them," DeMarcus Ware said. "It's just not the Giants, because guess what, the team is trying to come in here and take your manhood. So it don't matter who you're playing. It's sort of like a battle, gladiator against gladiator, who wants it the most. It's not just the Giants, so there is a lot at stake. You're playing for first place and you got to get out there and play hard."

When asked whether the Cowboys can get their manhood back by beating the Giants on Sunday night, Ware said, "We've got to figure out how to get that back."

Ware also said he thinks he knows why Tuck hates the Cowboys and has called Cowboys Stadium a dump after winning the first game there.

"He says that because maybe he wants to play here," Ware said of Tuck. "Everybody wants to play for the Cowboys. If I wasn't playing for Cowboys I would call it that too because I want to play for them."
