Itís still early, but the parking lots at MetLife Stadium are pretty empty right now. #Giants
This is a day where the running games

will be the focus. Look for lots of shotgun draws from the Giants.....ugh. With Shep likely out today weíve got virtually nuttin on O, except Engram, whom Iím sure will be double teamed. I sure hope Rosas is also going to learn something today about East Rutherford winds too.
Regardless of what  
RetroJint : 11/19/2017 9:41 am : link
happens today, the Chiefs have problems on defense that are not going away. But the Giants aren't going to be able to take advantage of them.

This game should be telecast in Bergmanesque black and white to give it a proper funereal feel to it, save for the Chiefs fans all in red, making like seals, clapping and bouncing balls on their noses.

Like a restaurant that offers bad food, you can't blame people for choosing to spend their dollars elsewhere. I will watch the game because I am a die hard fan, but It honestly feels more like an obligation now than something I am excited about.
How will the Giants fans keep

No shit, it was 9:00 when Kratch posted this. Did he expect a plethora of cars 4 hrs prior to game time. If you look for ugliness you will find it.
I'm sure the crowd will be small, but a parking lot a 9 AM isn't proof of anything, yet.
I drove by last night and it was empty too

Make sure we send a car by later around 8pm to check on the lot situation.

I canít blame fans for not wanting to sit on a chilly windswept day and watch one of the worst football teams in the league get crushed.
I am actually enjoying watching the games  
averagejoe : 11/19/2017 11:12 am : link
I watch Giant games like I used to watch Jet games. I am curious to see exactly how horrible they will play from week to week. You know they will lose and lose big before game begins. I watch to see if they will compete at all now. I have never seen a Giants team outright quit like the last two weeks. If this continues NFL may have to demand McAdoo be removed so Giants make an effort.

That's all the K.C. Chiefs game means to me.

Nothing more... nothing less.

Giantsí WR Sterling Shepard is inactive today vs Chiefs due to migraines.

Doing something involving repetitive impacts doesnít seem to be the smartest way to manage migraines, medication or not.
NFL.com just said Apple was a coaching decision, a healthy scratch

so IMO its unclear if its related to his mom, or related to his play last week.

I watch the Giants because that's what I do from august until they're done. This year its become 1 long stretch of preseason games ... it doesn't matter who wins because it's irrelevant. It's more about watching individual players and what they do (or don't do) and waiting until next year when hopefully there's a new regime

To watch the Giants through thick and thin .Who the heck
knows what to expect . You just want to see an effort to win
crazier things have happened so will root hard without high expectations those went out the Window nearly in pre-season
The complete no show at Dallas was no mirage .
Lets just hope no serious injuries and a decent effort possibly a win hard to see that happening .
