Brandon Carr: Dallas Cowboys fed up with Giants

Though Brandon Carr has faced the New York Giants just once in his four-year career, in fewer than 180 days in Big D he's already learned to dislike them, Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports.

"(The Giants) have had great success, winning two Super Bowls in five years, and I think guys are kind of getting tired of seeing that," Carr said on Monday. "Now it's to the point guys are getting fed up. It's pretty much the attitude, 'When is it going to be our time?' "

Since the Cowboys swept the regular season series in 2007, the Giants are 7-2 in the series, including a 21-17 win in Dallas in the divisional round of the 2007 NFL playoffs when the Cowboys were the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

The Giants went on to win the Super Bowl that season, and then another last season, while the Cowboys received half of the votes for which team is the biggest underachiever in Daniel Jeremiah's survey of 20 NFL personnel executives. This week, Tony Romo stormed off when asked about the Super Bowl window closing.

On the surface, it sounds like the Cowboys are a team that might be wound a little too tight on the eve of the regular season.

"I can feel the anticipation," said Carr, who signed a five-year, $50.1 million contract on March 15 after four years in Kansas City. "I've been hearing about (the Giants) for a long time now, and we're all just ready to go out there and play them. We love getting the first crack at the defending Super Bowl champions."
