    For right now - I agree - but that too is dying a slow death. The best rivalry the past 10 years in my important opinion has been the Colts/Patriots. Brady/Manning wars were epic.....

    Raiders/Steelers in the 1970s was pretty darn good too.

    I hate Washington more than any other team, period! So, for me, Cowboys/Redskins is #1 to me

    The cowboys redskins rivalry has been dead for quite some time

    for the fans it might be a rivalry but these two teams are usually fighting for 3rd or 4th place in the division so who really cares?

    if the two teams were fighting for playoff position then it would be bigger, but thank the skins for sucking it up year in and year out and the cowboys for being mediocre at best year in and year out

    Not sure if serious or just clueless...If you really think the Cowboys have been one of the worst teams in the league the past decade, you have no clue how awful many of the teams have been.

    We'll see if that's the case on Thanksgiving. Don't be surprised if the Redskins come into town with a chip on their shoulder for that game.

    I want the Redskins to make the Championship game. And I want the Cowboys to knock them off in that game. We owe them a few.

    The Cowboys have been one of the least successful teams over the last 15 years. Practically the entire NFC has played in a Championship game over that time.

    Clueless would be to believe we haven't been an irrelevant also ran over that time. The same applies to the Redskins. Even moreso than the Cowboys. They've gone 20 years.

    Right. At best you'll have 4-6 vs. 5-5. And that's one of the better matchups in the series lately.

    Isn't this the definition of a rivalry, both teams give their all to beat the team they just can't stand regardless of the records? I think in DC, Redskins' fans still hate the Cowboys with a passion. Their poor record the last two decades only makes our games that much more meaningful for them. Its their Super Bowl when they play us, regardless of record.

    It wouldn't suprise me in the least. The Redskins will always be at the top of my most hated list. Over the past half-dozen seasons or so, it seems the rivalry has meant more to Redskin fans, though. Most likely having to do with the Redskins not having played many games of great significance over that span.

    I think I'd go with bears/packers just because they've played each othwr the longest and have the most meeting between 2 teams.

    Without looking at it through homer lenses, this is probably accurate.

    :skins:

    Having grown up in Skins territory I can say w/o hesitation that that whole Beltway area still thinks this is a huge deal. They are obsessed with the Cowboys. They think about beating the Boys 365 days a year. Nothing is more important to them.

    Those DC fans would love nothing more than to beat us in Dallas on Thanksgiving.

    And the very thought of the whole DC metropolitan area being totally depressed at 8 pm Thanksgiving night after losing to the Cowboys just warms the cockles of my heart and puts a smile on my face!

    Yes, ALL the fans, young and old in the DC area are still obsessed with the Cowboys/Redskins rivalry. As far as Cowboys fans, for the most part, it's only us old school guys who still think of it as a huge rivalry.
