Cowboys face Giants in season opener

The NFL and it’s fans love the Dallas Cowboys and this is just them admitting it, read here.

The Super Bowl champion New York Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium on Sept. 5 to kick off the 2012 regular season, the NFL announced Tuesday.

The game will be played at 8:30 p.m. ET and televised by NBC.

“Who cares who we are playing, hosting the game is all that’s important,” Giants owner John Mara joked, knowing well that the NFL champion hosts the kickoff to the season. “It’s exciting. They’re one of our big rivals. We had two great games last year. The fans will be jacked up for it.”

The game has a little more zest than usual if that’s possible because Mara is the guy who keeps saying publicly the Cowboys and Redskins deserved the cap fines for the contracts the league approved back in 2010.

Cowboys 24, Giants 20. Romo is the man in this game.

    This is one of those games that you hope can springboard a new season of the Dallas Cowboys. It could also put us on the ground, flopping on our backs, trying once again to be relevant. Let’s root for the first option.

    It’s always been about playing New York, since the very beginning. Clint Murchison wanted his team to play in the NFC East, then the Capital Division, because he wanted to play the Giants twice a year for maximum media exposure. Washington, Philadelphia, certainly St. Lous, were after-thoughts at the time. Nobody cared about them. Although Marshall was really pissed off that some team from Texas was trying to steal the southern television market, there really was nothing he could do about it. Especially after Murchison had his lawyer buy the rights to “Hail to the Redskins.” But for a song.

    The Cowboys would be nowhere today if they didn’t play the Giants twice a year. And New York has never lost a game at Cowboys Stadium, Jerry World. Go figure.

    This whole thing is about Mara and Jones. The salary cap fines, the penalties, all of it, derives from that. But one team consistently beats the other.

    When Jerry fields a team that can beat the Giants at home, then there will be headlines. Until such time, it’s all over but the crying.
