  • Who Will Be Our Biggest Rival?


    In the next 5 years what team will be our biggest rival?

    In the NFC east I say the Skins will regain prominence. I'm biased b/c I'm from D.C. I enjoy those victories so much more.

    Outside the division I say NO. After getting shellacked by them 3 times in a row I really want to beat those guys. Although right now it's been more of a massacre than a competitive rivalry to be honest. We will change that this year.
    Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

    I'd say let's see how RGIII progresses before we start worrying about the 'skins.

    The Eagles will ALWAYS be our biggest rivals, and we just don't match up against NO. I don't see them as our biggest rivals, just our biggest mismatch.

    And if we see SF in the playoffs again, now THAT may start becoming reminiscent of our '80s playoff rivalry. That's got a chance to become personal.

        If you look at the past 30 years, all three of our division foes have been heated rivals. More recently, the Skins have dropped back (two losses to them this year notwithstanding). I would expect them to move back up to the level with the Iggles and Girls but don't see any one of them becoming THEtop rival. They will share that banner. The NFC east will remain very balanced and competitive for years to come.
        No one remembers who came in second.

          If Griffin can stay healthy I say it's definitely Washington. That's a big if though...Cowboys, Eagles and Giants all have fronts that will get after him...hard!

          I'm predicting RG3's career won't be pretty at all early on. This rookie season he'll receive a not so nice baptism from the NFC East.

            You guys seem to own the Cowboys the last 5 years. Philly and washington is your biggest obstacle to repeat.

              If you were a Giants fan that grew up in DC like I did than the Skins games were the biggest games of the year every year, and two of the top 5 NFL franchises in the 80s and early 90s were the Giants and the Skins.

              With the drafting of RG3 and an already stout defense in place, I think the Skins are poised to regain relevance in the NFC East.

              I'm still pissed we lost both games to them last year with freaggin' Rex Grossman at QB...SMH.

                Why in the next 5 years? Take it season by season. This year it's Philly because Dallas is going nowhere with the head coach and owner they have. Washington maybe a threat but they have a rookie QB. They have Mike Shanahan as head coach, i don't think he's that good.
                Good teams win games, Great teams cover the spread!

                  The Saints and the Eagles.

                    Actually its a small world...cuz i spent my 80's as a Giant fan in Alexandria Va. So yes...i am quite aware of the rivalry we had against the Skins. I remember how much i despised the Washington Post that idolized the Skins every single year. I remember all those stupid Redskin shows on how they talked about the Redskins being the greatest/winningest team in NFL history.... I was there in the thick of it.

                    That being said...the Eagles still kicked our cans PLENTY of times in the 80's. I remember as a whole in the 80's...We beat Skins/ Skins beat Eagles/Eagles beat us/Dallas beat nobody. You are basing your opinion on the fact you lived in DC as a Giant fan. The rivalry between us in the 80's was good....but not in same league as Eagles. Skins/Cowboys; Giants/;Eagles.

                      I lived 16 years in Delaware (eagles territory), and go to school in West Chester (a couple mins out of philly), so for me there is no bigger rival than the Eagles. The **** their fans say, what they think, its just horrible here, and the eagles losing and hearing there fans cry is ALMOST as good to me as a giants win... yeah its that bad.

                        I'm basing my rivalry choice on what were the biggest games for me. If you live in a town where your team is not the home team there is nothing like gameday when the home team plays your team. When I used to walk around with my Giants Starter jacket on I would always hear smack from Skins fans before the game and the game itself was always a bigger event than any other game.

                        I never got that feeling of the hated rivalry to the same degree from an Eagles Giants game in DC.

                        The Eagles were good in 80's and and early 90s but the Skins during this era were clearly the team to beat. I'm talking more about the late 80s and early 90s. I became a Giants fan in 85'. Remember between 83'-92' the Skins won 3 SBs. We won in 86' and 90'.

                        If you remember the two best teams outside of the 49ers in that era were the Skins and the Giants. Plus living in DC just amplified the rivalry for me. Philly, I didn't like them, but they never did anything come crunch time so it was hard to get pumped up for them in the same way.


                        LOL about the Post and sports radio as well in DC. It's a year long activity to religiously cry about the Skins uuuuggghhh!

                          Obviously the Eagles, Cowboys and Redskins. They're the only constants.

                              Am i the only one who feels somthing boiling up with San Fran? Maybe beating them in NFC champ ( look at any highlight video on youtube all san fran fans ). With that being said im starting to dislike them for what they've done in the offseason with so many pick ups ( taking my fav MM82) and i just sense an overall real ****iness over there. Besides we play them this upcoming season and i can feel a real bloodbath coming
