Cowboys Linebacker Not That Impressed By Jets Bravado

Maybe they’re just a tad jealous another team is being featured on HBO’s 'Hard Knocks' this year, but the Dallas Cowboys, or at least one of their players, had some scathing words for Rex Ryan and his New York Jets team. On Tuesday, linebacker Keith Brooking hit the airwaves in Dallas to talk about the Cowboys’ camp, and to field a few questions about if he saw the Jets/Giants game and what he thoughts of Ryan’s relentless blitzing of Eli Manning. Brooking also commented on Ryan’s profanity laced outbursts and how he thinks the Jets’ should simmer down with all the talking.

Here’s a few choice quotes:

On what he thought of Rex Ryan’s profanity laced outbursts on Hard Knocks:

"To be honest, I really haven’t paid much attention to them before because they really haven’t accomplished a whole lot in this league to be honest with you. But I did see that, I’m a football fan, I love the NFL and knew it was coming on, so I wanted to check it out and see it. My wife and I were sitting there and when it was during it I was like what is up with this? I mean, honestly, I just couldn’t believe the way he was acting, when really in the full scheme of things, they haven’t accomplished a whole lot. I think they can be really good team, and I think he’s got a solid foundation there, and I’m not saying they can’t accomplish great things. But sometimes you can bite off a little more than you can chew, especially in this league. And until you have gone out there and proven it and done something, it’s best to kind of keep your mouth shut sometimes."

An us against the world mentality. I don’t mind it one bit.
