Mathias Kiwanuka fires back at Cowboys owner Jerry Jones

Remember when Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took time out from his hip hop career to say his team would “beat the Giants’ [backsides]” in the NFL season opener Wednesday?

New York linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka consulted the history books and fired back today on WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton” show.

“He should [be eager for the Cowboys to kick the Giants’ backsides]. I mean, the Giants have been whupping his [backside] for a long time,” Kiwanuka said (via NJO.com’s Mike Garafolo).

When the Giants host the Cowboys in the NFL’s 2012 opener Wednesday night, Jones will get a reminder that the Giants won a championship in February. Kiwanuka wasn’t unsympathetic to Jones’s feelings.

“It’s gotta be tough on the outside looking in on all of these championships lately,” Kiwanuka said. “That’s the feeling I feel like everybody in the league has and everybody should have because we’re here on top and everybody should be wanting to knock you off.”

Over to you, Cowboys.
