For the Cowboys, by contrast, the rivalry is not quite this big a deal. "There are more potent rivalries for Cowboy fans at the moment, particularly with the Eagles," Sham argues. "When one of those teams is particularly good, Cowboys fans will pay attention. When it's not so much the case, Cowboys fans are more ho-hum." (He adds: "Older fans would, I think, very much say that the Redskins are the no. 1 rival, and that [they] will always be.") Still, the Redskins' two-a-years leaves the Steelers and Niners rivalries in the dust. Starting with Allen — whose son Bruce is the current Skins GM — Washington got under Dallas' skin more than any other team. As Accorsi noted, the Skins happened to be great at the same time as Dallas and more often than the Giants. As for Philly — they can call me when they win a Super Bowl.
