We're not the Cardinals or the Seahawks. We have 3 SB rings...and we don't play the "my d*ck is bigger than your d*ck" game.

Until Dallas achieves that 6th ring, they still remain in the company of SF and Pittsburgh. If superbowl wins is an indication of a team's greatness then they cannot be heralded as such as long as they share that distinction.

It becomes tiresome when Cowboys fans have nothing better to offer in a football discussion other than attempting to deflect criticism with the 5 rings mantra. I never get that response from Steelers fans. They don't rest on their laurels and you can always count on them to engage in intelligent football discussions. Unlike the typical Dallas fan who, more often than not, struggles to name 5 players on their roster at any given time.
You don't get that from Steeler fans, but Browns and Ravens fans do.
It may have something to do with them not being your rivals. WOW!

Oh yeah. When I try to narrow it down to just plain W-L records between the Cowboys and Redskins head to head the room somehow still gets real quiet. So it's not just the "SB mantra".

Win or lose, his job is done at the end of the season anyway.

You are absolutely right. They have to get over that playoff hump. That's where it all starts. With that said, wouldn't some of these fans just hate that. That means they really wouldn't have anything to talk about anymore. If there is something else.................What is it?

That's why I love this rivalry. Their are some very knowledgable Skin fans, and there are some very knowledgable Cowboy fans. Some Eagle and Giants fans can get out of hand once in a while.

I grew up as a child in the great rivalry. Sometimes throughout my life I have been on cloud 9 and sometimes I've been in the dumps, but I love this rivalry.

Re: Another reason to dislike the Cowboys?

From an eyewitness account of someone who was actually at the clinic where Wade Phillips allegedly made this comment:

Quote:
Wade Phillips was introduced and was walking to the podium while he was there was a gentleman up front yelling over and over GET YOUR RING FINGER READY! GET YOUR RING FINGER READY! he yelled it at least 10 times. Wade looked at the table and then went on speaking, toward the end of the speech the guy starts yelling it again GET YOUR RING FINGER READY! Wade Phillips gets a smirk on his face and says yes get your ring finger ready.
Now the individual who reported this was actually sitting at the table right next to the guy yelling "get your ring finger ready".

I understand the skepticism on my team regarding the post season. They have earned that distinction them selves. But in the same context I seem to remember a team that went 13-3 in 1996/97 season and lost in the same round of the playoffs that Dallas did last year.

But that team then went on to win back to back Super Bowls in 1998 and 1999. So I take solace in that fact.

Is this the big play segment? Okay, let's see. I have so many, but here are just a few. Dallas 27-Redskins 0. Newman had 3 ints in that game and Troy Hambrick out of all people had 189 yards rushing. Testaverde to Crayton TD for the win with 30 seconds left. Ebenezer Ekuban drags Jeff George 5 yards like a rag doll. Romo to T.O. for FOUR TDs. Need I say more?

And 3 well deserved SBs I might add. With that said, nobody said any thing about "d*cks". Where did that come from?

Seriously whats up with a Skins fan sticking up for our hated rival?

If there's ever a time to be biased and irrational it's when you're talking about your biggest rival.

I feel ya. I grew up in the rivalry too, I live it now, and will die in it. Sure it's good to go up against the Giants and Eagles, but it's Dallas that gets it going. W-L and/or injuries never matter, because it's always an evening playing field.

Props to the legacy of George Allen who created this rivalry. Tom Landry, too.

Btw, how do you think Romo's gonna screw you this year? Goal line fumble or interception?

Re: Another reason to dislike the Cowboys?

I don't need another reason to hate Dallas. I've hated them since the early 70s. I hate them because it turns my stomach to watch the media continually fawn over a group of underachievers. Outside of the 92-95 run, for the most part Dallas has consistently had talent and had difficulty bringing home the goods. With the talent Dallas has had over the years they should have more than 5 SBs.

What makes me even more sick to my stomach is the Cowgirl fans in general. Present company is excluded from these statements because I am assuming you guys are real fans or you wouldn't be posting in the offseason here. But even you guys/gals have to notice all the Dallas jerseys and hats and everything else when Dallas is doing well, when they're down the fair weather fan-base goes back into the closet. A few of us were mentioning this in another thread a while back, nothing burns many of us more than the Dallas fans who have no connection whatsoever to Dallas or Texas.

You don't see anywhere near as many fair weather Redskins fans.

Plus, as dblanch66 so eloquently stated, "Dallas sucks."
