Drew Pearson: Cowboys Have To Ignore Penalties To Send A MEssage To RG III
Excerpt: "The Cowboys season is on the line Sunday against the Redskins and Robert Griffin III, who torched Dallas on Thanksgiving Day the last time the teams met.
Dallas doesn't want Griffin to have the same success he did then, and former Cowboys wideout Drew Pearson believes they need to "intimidate" Griffin in order to limit his success.“We gave RGIII a lot of confidence playing against the Cowboys in our first game here in Cowboys Stadium so we need to take it to him," Pearson said on KESN-FM 103.3 via theDallas Morning-News.
"We need to let him know that it's not going to be that easy or we're not going to lay down for them and we're not intimidated by him."So how would the Cowboys do that? Well, according to Pearson, they should throw caution to the wind, ignore personal-flag penalties and "send a message" to Griffin by "knock[ing] him around.""The way you do that is you go out on that field and you knock him around. Even if it costs you a 15-yard penalty, and I'm only saying this if it's not a critical situation or anything," Pearson said.
"Sometimes you have to deliver that kind of blow and that kind of message to let him know it's going to be like this all day and not a walk in the park. We need to establish this with RGIII and the Redskins as well."
Pearson's not a member of the Cowboys, per se, so he can't be fined for his comments. But this is the sort of thing the NFL doesn't want to have floating around before a big rivalry." Read more...
