Thread: Why longtime Giants fans hate the Cowboys.

  1. #21
    Personally I've always hated the Eagles still do. I know some fellow old timers who hate the Redskins more which goes back to them taking Sam Huff from us, but I've never had a real "hatred" for the Skins.

    how the hell do "hate" Emmit Smith??

    One of the classier players of his time and still. I have never hated a player because of his talent level vs the Giants.

    You'd think everyone would learn a thing or two about football growing up around the whole 'Friday Night Lights' culture.

    Yeah, they love football, but they don't understand it. And it's usually going to be the people that only have a surface level understanding that boast and have the loudest opinions.

    Overall, I think there are far more casual fans in the area than there are anywhere else because it's the "cool thing to do"/norm to like football at any level here.
    Exactly

    I dont know. I guess because he absolutely destroyed the Giants all the time when I was younger. I always thought Troy Aikman was overrated.
    ZERO quality wins the last 2 seasons. Major changes are needed.

    You always thought wrong. Aikman was a great QB

    Take away Michael Irving and one of the best offensive lines ever and he is above average, not great

    12 seasons:

    61.5% - 32,942 yards (2,745 yards per season) - 165TDs (13.75 per season) - 141 INTs (11.75 per season) - 81.6 PR
    Great, I think not. Irvin and Emmitt and that OL helped his career a ton.

    These numbers are a smaller but same ratio as Eli. Smaller because of the pass happy NFL in todays game, but same ratio none the less and about the same PR. So since Troy was a HOF and "Great" QB, I guess Eli is too.

    .
    Most non-cowboys fans have the same opinion of Aikman.

    The overall numbers don't look great, and that's sometimes what people focus on. But most don't remember that Aikman would pass the Cowboys to a lead, and then let Emmitt and that offensive line close out the game. So he would pass well in the first half, and then swallow his ego and manage the game in the 2nd half because it was a winning formula.

    A good comparison. Compare the first two quarters of all games of 1993 Aikman and the passing leaders from last year:

    1993 Aikman: 286 att, 204 comp, 71.3%comp, 2,400yds, 8.4 ypa, 16tds, 5ints

    2012 Brady: 365att, 230 comp, 63.0%comp, 2,849yds, 7.8ypa, 22tds, 5ints
    2012 Brees: 331 att, 225 comp, 67.0%comp, 2,706yds, 8.1ypa, 24tds, 7ints
    2012 Peyton: 339 att, 237 comp, 69.9%comp, 2,634yds, 7.8 ypa, 17tds, 9ints
    2012 Rodgers: 318 att, 217comp, 68.2%comp, 2,418yds, 7.6ypa, 22tds, 4ints
    2012 Romo: 292 att, 186 comp, 63.7%comp, 2,075yds, 7.1 ypa, 8tds, 12ints

    He fits in pretty well as far as first half production goes. I'd probably place his overall performance among that of Rodgers and Peyton's.

    Similar yardage totals with Rodgers, but without the TD-INT ratio.
    Better TD-INT ratio than Peyton, but without the yardage totals.

    Better YPA than those guys... really better YPA than everyone.

    For the record, I don't think Aikman was a top 5 QB or anything. In fact, I could probably think of 10-15 who I'd consider better.

    Montana
    Brady
    Peyton
    Unitas
    Marino
    Elway
    Staubach
    Favre
    Brees
    Graham
    Baugh

    For sure off the top of my head. I just think the guy doesn't get enough credit.

    'Nuff said.

    I never hated them then even though they consistently and continually kicked the crap out of the Jints regularly. I only disliked the Jerry/Jimmy Cowboys because I thought they were classless ******bags.

    But I don't hate the Cowboys today nor do I hate their fans. And I like Romo.

    I found this interesting: http://nypost.com/2013/10/31/why-tom...-a-giants-fan/
