The announcing crew on Monday night football criticized Dallas defensive lineman Igor Olshansky for celebrating two tackles in the Giants victory over the Cowboys.
The criticism was because the Cowboys were 18 points behind at the time. But Olshansky was unrepentant on Wednesday.
“It’s the end of the game and they’re running the ball,” Olshansky said. “Pretty much, it’s like an inside-run drill mentality. I take pride in stopping the run. This was a no-nonsense type of deal. I knew that they were going to run the ball. They knew that they were going to try to run the clock out, so it was a lot of fun.”
When told the Monday Night Football announcers, Olshansky said: “I really don’t care what the announcers said. I play this game for my family and myself not for anybody else’s opinion on what they think about me. I have a lot of pride in what I do so you’re going to run the ball my way, I’m going to make the play I’m going to let you know it. Period.”
