DeMarcus Ware Says Justin Tuck 'Wishes He Was A Cowboy'

With a pivotal divisional showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants coming Sunday, players from the two bitter NFC East rivals have been trading shots all week.

Justin Tuck, the Giants Pro Bowl DE, started it off by saying how much he hates the Cowboys in general and the Death Star in Arlington in particular.

DeMarcus Ware, in turn, wasted no time defending the Cowboys:

"He says that because maybe he wants to play here," Ware told reporters Wednesday. "Everybody wants to play for the Cowboys. If I wasn’t playing for the Cowboys I would call it that, too, because I want to play for them."

"I hate anytime we play them," 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."

Players from around the NFL have long voiced frustration about the amount of publicity and national attention "America's Team" gets, and it's one of the main reasons why the Cowboys rivalries with big-market teams in Washington, Philadelphia and New York City are so heated.
