Jacobs explains his hatred for Cowboys

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

IRVING, Texas -- New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has emerged as one of the game's most prolific trash talkers -- and he usually backs it up. The Cowboys are well aware of Jacobs' reputation and they were very diplomatic during Wednesday's open locker room session. On Monday night, Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware told ESPN 103.3 FM that he hated the Giants, and that's all Jacobs needed to hear. On Wednesday, Jacobs explained to the New York media why he hates the Dallas Cowboys:

Q: It seems like when you play the Cowboys every year there seems to be a little trash getting thrown back and forth?

A: Well, the reason I hate the Cowboys so much -- I am going to put me in this, I am going to take my team out of this...The reason I hate the Cowboys so much is because they have so many fans. Everywhere you go, someone is always saying Big D! Go Big D! I don’t want to hear that crap. That’s what makes me hate them.

In my 36 years of living in the Dallas area, I've never heard someone shout, "Go Big D!" But maybe that happens in other locales. Jacobs had barely left the locker room Sunday night when he started poking the Cowboys with a sharp stick. You have to love it.
