The rivalry hasn't meant shit for ages Dmek. Thing is it is a one sided rivarly anymore. Skins fans still think it is, while I am not so sure about Cowboy fans. Just isn't the same. Both franchises are experiencing a low ebb in their respective histories. You also add the fact that the NFC East is fading fast, and you don't have much of a real rivalry feel to it. Last time I thought there was any inkling of the rivalry left was when Brunell hit Moss for those two bombs to win 14-13 back in 2005. That being said I do think we have a decent chance of winning on Sunday, but to me the rivalry is pretty much DOA. To get the rivalry back where it used to be, both franchises need to turn their respective fortunes around and have the game mean something.

A Baltimore sports talk personality said that it was the best rivalry in football. Kind of surprising, since they are all about the Steelers here.

The guy is an idiot then. Ohio State Michigan is way more intense than Dallas Washington and has gone on for almost a century. Even if the game isn't for the Big Ten title it is about getting a better bowl game and pride. You haven't had that intensity with Wash/Dallas since Landry and Gibbs.

I respectfully disagree. If you go to a Cowboys fan site you will find many fans who have anti-Redskins messages for avatars and signatures. Once they find out you are a Skins fan, they will immediately attack you like hungry piranhas. I can't speak for Cowboys players but for many of the Cowboys fans, it's on.

I tend to agree. Cowboy fans understand the rivalry.
Then again, it the Cowboys themselves do not, than we Redskin Fans may have a great Sunday ahead of us.

Go Skins !!!

Yep.

In my circle of family and friends, roughly half are 'Skins fans, half Cowgirls fans. My lady is a Dallas fan (which if I'd known before we got together we might not be together, LOL). Every last one of them knows about, feeds into, and promotes the rivalry. Hell, this game this Sunday is the first one me and my lady are gonna watch together snce the 'Skins tapped that Cowgirl ass in 2006 when ST returned that onside kick after they blew their FG (she was so sure they'd won, she left to go pee and when she came back I was whoopin it up; she left five minutes later and I didn't get laid that night, but it was SO worth it to the 'Skins fan in me, haha).

For everyone I know who loves either or team, yeah, its on. Maybe the players on the teams don't all get it, but the fans sure do.

And to the NFL, with its penchant for history, it's def one of the best and often noted rivalres in pro football. When we win it's like we won the Superbowl, and vice versa.

The game within the game is going to be field position and how we counter their front seven. If they create problems for Campbell out the gate, it's going to be a long day. But if we can jump out to a 10 point lead, our running game could serve us well.

The Redskins can win this game guys. We're going to go to Dallas with a lot of confidence and if the defense can solve the issue they had with Brandon Marshall, I think we can harrass Romo into making a few costly errors. Which he is very capable of doing.

I say Skins 20 - Dallas 13.
I love when a bad team calls another a poser...priceless I'll take this bet

Re: It Is Dallas Week, Isn't It?

If you go by Tradition the Rivalry is still there but it's not what it used to from teh 70's-90's if you ask me as a Cowboys fan right now we have a bigger Rivalry against the Eagles I just hate those guys their fans... the way they talk like champions when they've never won.

For me thats the #1 Division Rivalry

If nothing else, I hope Rak introduces himself to Romo a couple of time and lets him know there is a new beastly defensive lineman to worry about in the division
