IMO when Andre dropped the biggest case of whoop a** on Finnegan that's when it became a true rivalry for me. After that the games vs the Titans were always something to watch. I know to most people they actually like the Titans as evidenced by the hardcore cheering when Vince Young scored on us and he basically got a standing ovation.
I hated the cowboys, now I just don't care and every time I see a Texan fan arguing with a Cowboys fan they just bring up the same points over and over. "We got five rings", "we have won more playoff games" after a while it gets tiring and I'm not one to get excited over preseason games. But to each his own.
