    Do you guys still consider us big rivals?

    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....

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

    lol sike, that's too one sided to be a rivalry. jk but the Giants and Eagles rivalry will always be the best in the division, even if one team isn't as successful at the time

    Isn'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)

    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.

    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
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!
