I live in Va Beach now. So there is a lot of people from NY and TX here, because of the military. Now I always see these fans always clashes together. Why is there a rivalry between NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys?

because they are in the same Division. And sometimes, that is all it takes.

As a life long Redskins fan, I can assure you that there is a rivalry between every team in the NFC East. The common denominator between all the Eagles, Giants and Redskins fans is that we ALL HATE the Cowboys!! Isn't that right my fella Eagles/'Skins/Giants fans? Please chime in...

X-Greensboro Resident is right. I think it got kicked into high gear when the Dallas Cowboys started being referred to as "America's Team".

It always goes back to their obsession with the Cowboys gettin' more airtime and popularity than the other three teams.

But "cheerleading" asside, the NFC East is just about always the toughest division in the Leauge and all four teams give eachother good games and hard fought battles.

Giants and Cowboys have always been rivals. I remember Tom Landry in an interview stating that the last team he'd want to face in the playoffs away from home was the Giants. Like X-Greensboro stated, every team within that division is a rival, and we all hate the Cowboys!

It used to be, back when the Cowboys were good but Jerry's kids are not much of a threat.

WRONG!

Ha ha! Not much of a threat? Don't let that last win over the 'Boys give you the big head.

They should have moved them to another Division. No way Dallas should be in the east. Why are they special
