Jerry Jones accused the Giants -- and without naming him directly, Cullen Jenkins -- of faking injuries in Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Today, Jenkins fired back.
“I don’t know what he saw if he thinks I was faking,” Jenkins said. “Maybe he can get his son-in-law to clean his glasses a little better next time so he can see what’s going on out there.”
And Jenkins wasn’t through. He noted that Jones said that the Giants’ attempts to fake injuries were “so obvious it was funny.”
“I think he just wanted something to say,” Jenkins said. “I guess at his age I’m glad he has a sense of humor still.”
For the record, Jenkins said he hurt his shoulder on the play in question, suffering a stinger. He also said that he was on the turf in pain before the Cowboys started to show that they would be going to a no-huddle offense.
That didn’t stop Jason Witten and Tony Romo from pleading their case on the field that Jenkins was faking.
“I actually went a little back and forth with Romo at the time,” Jenkins said. “It is what it is though.”
Jenkins may have had the zingers, but he ultimately conceded that Jones and the Cowboys won the most important aspect of Sunday night’s contest.
“They got the win, they beat us,” he said. “It’s all in good (spirit) … They got the win so they got the last laugh and the period.”
