With how bad we've been this year and are likely to be, for the next few years, I have to wonder if we're still considered rivals. Every Cowboy fan that I've talked to says that their biggest rivals are currently the Redskins and the Giants. Every Giants fan that I've talked to, says that their biggest rivals are the Cowboys and the Packers.

Wanted to get some thoughts on this.

If you guys somehow beat the Redskins in Week 16, we'll call you rivals again....

yes, call it reverse-respect.

no team will ever replace you guys as my number 1 most hated rival

I understand your rivalry with the Packers is heating up. Should be fun to watch that progress.

You're probably correct. Although I can see the Skins/Giants rivalry heating up over the course of the next 5 or so years.

I will always consider the Eagles one of our biggest rivals. doesnt really matter about your record. the teams know each other to well. Also i dont see you being down for next few years. I think now that you got all that Dream Team and Dynasty talk out of the way and fell flat on your faces your front office and staff can regroup and head in right direction. Stil have a really good CORE of players. I hope they keep Reid cause i feel you will never win with him there, but if you get the right person in to Coach these guys it wont take as long as you think. That new running back you guys have is a gem

Part of it was we had to play you guys. Other factor is horrible playcalling, McCarthy trying to establish the run more. Another part is horrible O line.

Even with the collapse of the Reid regime there's a ton of logical reasons to still consider the Eagles rival #1.

- Proximity
- Long history of bad blood
- Oldest NFC East rivalry (1933)
- No matter how bad either team is it's always nasty
- Eagles have won 8 out of last 9 and won the only meeting this year
- Two recent playoff defeats in 2006 and 2008

It would take 30 years of absolutely no threat by the Eagles to overcome all that

You know if GB and NE make the playoffs the absolute last team either one of them want to see in their bracket is the NYGs. No matter how bad we look at certain times during a given season they seem to turn it on at the right time and become a nightmare for anyone in the playoffs

Appreciate the support. I was suprised we won it that year. It was an awesome run. Similar to your run in 07 and 11. I hope we can do it again this year but I have my doubts. Starks is hurt now so we signed Ryan Grant. I hope he provides a spark. We haven't had a running back really since Ahman Green.

For some reason this reminds me of Buffalo... they probably really hate the city of Dallas in general. 2 superbowls in the early 90s that the Bills lost to the Cowboys, and the Sabres' Stanley Cup Finals loss to the Stars in 99 when Brett Hull was CLEARLY IN THE CREASE!!

GreenGuy
12-07-2012, 04:12 PM
haha that was actually funnyIsn't the Pack/Giant rivalry similar to your old rivalry with San Fran? You guys always see each other in the playoffs. Anyways, going off of what Rodgers12 said earlier, Eagles fans don't hate the Giants either. We actually respect your QB and organization. Its just a few of your players that we don't like (LT, Strahan, Tiki, Shockey, Cruz)

At this point I would rather have Dallas win the NFCE then the Redskins...to me they just took over the trash that Philly used to be.

Very few non-divisional rivalries stand up to that old 49er-Giant rivalry. The 49ers were the team of the 80s with 4 SBs but the Giants were the one team that could get the best of them. Stopped the Super Bowl era's first 3-peat in 1990 by beating them in their house, and basically ended Joe Montana's career. Simms and LT's last game was against them. Blowouts both ways and razor-thin games too. We went through them for 3 of our 4 Super Bowls.

As heated as the rivalry with Philly is, we understand deep down there is a jealousy that asks "why them and not us"? I've always said when looking at Philly it's like looking at a distorted reflection of ourselves.

Its just a few of your players that we don't like (LT, Strahan, Tiki, Shockey, Cruz)i guess it'd be the same thing when we mention Reggie white, desean Jackson, McNabb, Westbrook, Harold Jackson, Carmichael etc. those were the guys that kill us.. Same as LT, Cruz, strahan, etc did to u guys. I can say I don't like them cause they always were a thorn in our sides but it doesn't mean I don't have a health respect for them. Well except for Desean all the time (kinda like how you. Guys must have viewed Shockey) and the one time when Donavan got on the phone on outside line. Lol

miked1958
12-08-2012, 11:45 AM
And if I remember both of them were blowouts. And those two losses came on the backend of a 4 game In a row SB losing streak for the Bills. All 4 to the NFCE with the first one to us and their 2nd loss to skins and then losses 3&4 to Dallas. Poor eagles (sorry green guy, no offense) are the only ones that didnt get in on the act vs buffalo

miked1958
12-08-2012, 11:49 AM
Hey Denver lost back to back as well and a 3 rd SB loss to make them 0-3 overall ( all blowout losses ) until they finally bounced back and won two in a row. Unlucky for Bills fans they have never made it back to the SB

IMO, the Eagles are our biggest rival -- they always have our # and they're the closest big city. I always pictured the 'boys and 'skins as they're own biggest rivals, while we've got the Eagles.

There is a special kind of hate I reserve for the Eagles. They're like the anti-Giants and the games are always hard fought, tough, and eventful. In my eyes this will always be the best and most hateful NFC East rivalry. Its almost sad to see the Eagles bad because there is nothing as exciting as Giants vs, Eagles games that actually mean something for both teams.

While I hate Dallas, they're a trainwreck that's funny to watch. The Redskins have just been irrelevant for too long for me too care about them yet. The growing rivalries with the 49ers and Packers are great, but I don't hate either team and I respect both of them. The Niners would probably be my favorite team if the Giants didn't exist.

In short, yes, the Eagles are still our biggest rival.

My attitude, since the days of Buddy Ryan, has always been that if the G-Men go 2-14, the two wins MUST be against the Eagles.

Amen to that. If we get eliminated next week, we better come out guns blazing to finish off the Eagles for good...

Andy Reid was already pre-fired on Friday before the game. The highlights of his career would be that great 2004 Eagles team
with T.O. and that star-studded defense and his head-to-head matchup record against Tom Coughlin.

How sad it is that after this many years a major part of your legacy is your head to head record against another coach as opposed to something meaningful?

I'd gladly take TC's 2 SB wins and the late season meltdowns over Reid's 14 seasons of no superbowl wins. That's for sure.

strangely after so many years of the Birds "robbing us" or "knocking us off," this win felt so cheap.

Am I glad? Sorta, but we all knew that Reid is done, his Era is done, Vick is punch drunk and we squander our hopes 2 weeks ago and at Cincy...

So yea Giants kicked that ***, but in the bigger picture so F'n what !!!

I absolutely do not feel sorry if an opponent doesn't show up to play and Giants ran up the score on them, especially if it's the Eagles... and I'm sure there's no pity from the Falcons or Ravens either. Show up and play or get send back into the lockerroom in humiliation with reporters waiting to jump on the interviews.
