    If there's a game you can afford to lose it's an out of conference game. If we were sitting here at 2-1 or 3-1 right now a loss wouldn't be so bad. Rival or not this is a must win game for Pittsburgh.

    No football rivalry at all. I have alot of family around the Philly area,if anything they like
    the Steelers as their "back up" team and have alot of respect and a pinch of jealousy
    for not being able to do what the Steelers do and thats win SB's. I don't hate the city
    of Philly,every city has *******s and trash. The 'Burgh has it's share too,just that it's
    smaller and more secluded away from the pain in the *** East Coast corridor.
    The Eagles from the top down have always had people running them I can't stand
    but I'll follow them regardless because they are a Pa. team. If the division or conferance
    was the same then it would be similar to the Pens/Flyers rivalry I suppose.

    Very subtle on the surface. If it ever came to a SB between these two you would see a rivalry that would rock the NFL to its core. Philly is a shithole but, what east coast city ain't these days when your really take a deep look. Their fans blow and they are unheard of outside of lebanon valley pa (a good thing). The Eagles are for real though, unlike the punks from purple land, the brownies and sinsanastie pussies. My opinion.

    And their fans.

    I don't hate the Eagles. In fact, I cheer for them twice a year...when they play the Cowboys.

    i think we are more a rival to them than they are to us. some have said that eagles fans don't hate the steelers, but my sister and brother-in-law live in philly and they are constantly hearing steeler bashing from philty fans. my sister over heard a guy claming that ben was a scumbag...which i find really funny being that their QB is vick, but whateves....

    any ways, even without sharing a division or conference, there is still bragging rights for the state. so there is at least something.

    I've got a few Eagles at work that were giving me some hell this week, so rather than throw the "we got 6 how many you got" at them, I'd rather just celebrate the win and wave my towel in their cube a few times on Monday.

    Eagles/Steelers is a 2 on a scale of 10. Not much of a rivalry at all...

    There's more Philly bash in this thread than I've heard Steeler bashing from Eagles fans in 11 years. So maybe the opposite is true.

    i dont hate the eagles. i live in ohio. i know there fans have a bad reputation, much like cleveland fans. and for some reason they usually play well against us. i respect andy reid, but cant root for a guy like michael vick. they remind me of the jets however, big city media darlings that never live up to there hype.
    Cleveland Browns suck!
