i grew up in houston and a couple of years ago i had to move just south of dallas and everytime i wore any texans jerseys i would hear alot of crap and how the cowboys were going to kick our ass , when the texans beat them i was in heaven , that was also the whole reason why their coach was fired
everybody in dallas was walking around like someone just peed in ther cereal
at work nobody talked to me for a week i had the biggest smile on my face i think they should at least play once every two years

It would be pretty cool, and create a rivalry where one really can't exist with annual preaseason and two games a decade. However, in order to do that the league would have to come up with a "rivalry" for 32 different teams. That just isn't possible and the 4 division, 2 conference scheduling system that they have now is very workable and makes sense. Don't get me wrong.. I would be all for it, but it can't work.

I think it is a good idea. I am just not sure if it is a practical for the NFL. Then again Dallas is still in the NFC East.

It would be fun but not practical. Every team would have to have a rivalry game. Plus there are only 2 games in the schedule that are related to the previous season's rankings.

It would be nice for every team to have a rivaly game each season. It couldn't happen until after the current schedule rotation is over in around 6 years, but it would be great for the areas where "cross town" rivals exist.

Giants/Jets
49ers/Raiders
Texans/Cowboys
Ravens/Redskins

The problem would be with teams that really don't have a natural rival, their rival is already in the division or there's more than one "natural" rival (Tampa Bay, Miami and Jacksonville).

BTW: I predict that will be the most used smilie.

I agree there. Tampa Bay and Miami COULD have a good rivalry if the schedule were re-worked, but Jacksonville's too far removed from Miami's mindset to even acknowledge as a possible rival. It'd be like trying to call San Diego a rival of the 49ers. Honestly, though, the AFC East rivalries are so strong that proximity doesn't even matter. Dolphins fans HAAAAATE the Jets and there's no love lost for the other division rivals, either.

The preseason Cowboys/Texans games don't interest me much. The Cowboys will always come out and try to thump the Texans because they can't afford to get HUMILIATED again like they did in Houston's opening game. And the Texans will stick to only running a few different plays, pretty much ignoring Dallas's desperate attempts to hold the attention of their bandwagoners. What's the point? Let's try to get them on the nonconference schedule every 2-3 years--THEN it would be cool.

Of course. The Texans need a steady dose of cowgirl stomping to start every season.

of course, both my dad and a coach here at the school where I work are Cowboy fans and I have to pick on them like I did when Houston won the very 1st game in Texans history.

I like the idea of playing Dallas every year. But I think the Titans will become our rivals.

I think it is good for the game itself and it would ensure a win for the Texans each year.

Nah. I think it'll be better when we smoke 'em in the first ever All Texas superbowl. Between Houston and Dallas (eventually) most likely going into the superbowl rotation, we can even time it so we play it in our state.

Heck, we're big enough to support the tv revenue, right?

Hey, I wouldn't mind beating up on the CowGirls everyear. I think we need to play them every opening day for a few seasons. I think it could give us some momentum and a good start to the season.

No. It is not that important. I would rather play a team that gets respect as a good quality team.

This stems from decades of embarrasment when the Oilers were the worst team in the NFL and the Cowboys were in there heyday. Dallas fans became arrogant as long term sucessfull people, companys and countries will do. EVERONE's rival was Dallas. Americas Team! wow..thats bold. But the fact is Dallas has the most fans in Texas still, not to mention Oklahoma and Mexico. Tom Landry's leadership skills and ability to develope the right chemistry in personel gets more apparent as time goes by and the Cowboys flounder. Sure JJ took em but Tom made the Cowboys a dynasty admired and envied for there success world wide. He also developed his players, FA's didnt exist for him like they do now. Now that the Texans are a better team than the Cowboys, Houstonians are loving it. However, I think the best natural rivalry that has developped ( as rivals should ) is with the Jags. These two teams really hate each other and they play 2 meaningfull games every year. I hate the Jags for there dirty play and the lack of respect they give the Texans. Cowboys have been so successfull they are walking targets, Redskin vs Cowboy classics. Cowboys and 49ers. Cowboys and Pitt, Cowboys and Philly, Cowboys and Giants. The only rival the Oilers ever had was Pitt and maybe Buffalo.

That would be cool if the two Texas team faced each other more often in regular season.

Ain't happening, they offered Jerry Jones and Bob McNair the opportunity to meet year in and out in regular season Bob was ok with it, Jerry said un uh we will play our regular rotation...meaning every SIX years..consider how we beat him regular season and pasted them last preseason...you got to figure Jerry isn't so dumb after all
