Kiwanuka irritated by Flozell Adams:

From Mike Garafolo:

Still no word on Justin Tuck’s shoulder injury, 

but plenty of words from Mathias Kiwanuka on how he felt about Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams sticking out his foot to trip Tuck after he beat him to the inside. Adams was called for tripping, but Tuck was out for the game — and perhaps more.Kiwanuka hasn’t gotten an extended look at the play, but he knows what he saw on the big video board at Cowboys Stadium.

“From being out there and seeing the quick replays, it looked like a pretty bad play,” Kiwanuka said. “I guess they have to save their quarterbacks, but that’s not an excuse.”

Kiwanuka has heard such chatter before. Last year, Redskins tackle Chris Samuels tackled him on the final play of the regular-season opener. Kiwanuka suffered an ankle injury that nagged him all season.

“That’s absolutely not an excuse,” Kiwanuka said of the need to protect the quarterback. “This is the NFL. People put their careers on the line every day in practice and every game, and you don’t want to risk somebody getting hurt off something like that. Obviously, we understand they have a job to protect the quarterback, but there are rules in the game for a reason. For it to be a play like that … that’s definitely inexcusable.”

Kiwanuka was asked if he believes the Giants’ relentless pass rush frustrates opposing linemen to the point they use such tactics.

“Absolutely,” he said. “That’s the goal every game – to get them frustrated. So far, we’ve been doing a pretty good job of that. We know they’re going to be frustrated, but there a rules of the game. If we get frustrated and throw a punch or do something that’s of the same caliber, we’re going to hear about it and get fined or what not, so we try to play within in the rules of the game. And if you can’t play within the rules of the game, you don’t need to be out there.”

Flozell Adams is a bush league dirty player.  It would be ridiculous if he isn’t fined something for that play.
