Giants news: Don't mention "The Catch" around the Cowboys

New York Giants headlines for Friday, 9/11.

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines for your Friday morning.

Dallas is "sick of talking about (The Catch)"

Last year, the Giants fell in a November clash with the Cowboys, 31-28. However, the biggest story from that game was Odell Beckham's miraculous grab over Brandon Carr for a 43-yard touchdown. The play, which burst Beckham into the national spotlight as one of the top talents at his position, lives on in lore today as one of the most iconic catches in NFL history. On the short end of the stick are the Dallas Cowboys, who are not so forward to talk about Beckham's fateful catch that night.

"I’m sick of talking about it a year later," said Carr, an eight-year veteran who came to Dallas from the Chiefs three years ago. "It’s old. I don’t want to talk about no more, but y’all [media] just keep bringing it up, though. I’ll just go out and handle it, though. I’ve been through a lot."

And while the Cowboys don't like to reflect on that catch, they did offer Beckham praise as one of the most dynamic rookies they have seen.

"He’s come through a lot over the course of his short career," said Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. "To have the production he had over the course of 12 games last year was pretty impressive. He’s a damn good football player."
