#Giants open season vs. Cowboys, Jacobs signs with Niners, and Coughlin jabs Jets!
@SportsBata ..nuff said
The #Giants will open their season hosting the Cowboys, recently re-leased RB Brandon Jacobs signed with the SF 49ers, and #Giants coach Coughlin jabbed the Jets over #Tebow move, today! Giants coach Coughlin is also waiting for a well-deserved mega-deal contract extension!
The Giants will begin their season on Sunday Sept 5 8:30PM EST hosting the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ! The Giants and Cowboys games represent a classic rivalry! The games are highly touted, and watched by NYers and Texans alike! Strangely, there are a plethra of Cowboys fans in NYS, and vice versa in Texas!
“We had two great games with them last year, and I’m sure our fans will be jacked up for it,’’ Giants owner John Mara said. “I’m sure they’ll be ready to play, too. I think it was a good choice on the part of the league. If you look at the last 10-12 games we’ve had with them, we’ve had great games that went down to the wire. I’m sure this one will be no different.’’ – nypost
The Giants re-leased RB Brandon Jacobs on March 9; unable to agree on a contract! They were about $500K apart from reaching a deal. Earlier today, Jacobs signed with the SF 49ers! The terms of the contract have not yet been revealed. He will re-join teammate WR Mario Manningham, who signed with the Niners two weeks ago, and tandem with Niners current RB Frank Gore!
At the NFC coaches breakfast this morning, Giants coach Coughlin took jabs at the NY Jets! Coughlin said “Giants may not be on the front page, but New Yorkers know who won the Super Bowl: the King of NY!”, and that he wouldn’t juggle two quarterbacks like the Jets are trying to do with Sanchez and #Tebow! Check it out!
“You know who won the Super Bowl even if we’re not on front page. New Yorkers know.”
Coughlin also says he doesn’t believe in rotating quarterbacks.
“I don’t have a lot of experience with that,” Coughlin said, again smiling at the thought he has Eli Manning, a two-time Super Bowl winner. “Once you start to develop your guy, you like him to have the ball in his hand.” – nypost
