2018 Schedule Rumor Thread

Route 9 : 4/16/2018 9:35 am
We have done this numerous years since I got here on BBI and I figured we should.....do it again! help pass the time on this garbage rainy April day(s) in New Jersey.

Any rumors, news, or guesses should be posted here until it is time for the full schedule to be out. I remember in many threads parts of the schedule would leak and we would try to put the pieces together.

I know everyone is chewing their arms off because of how slowly the time is moving until the draft. Got any guesses for week 1 opponent? It has been forever and many years since the Giants opened at home.

I cannot believe this is year number 6 for me for "See one road game a year". I dont know who I have my eyes on yet but it is looking like a good chance it is Indianapolis. How about you?

Or a schedule release date...release date? I think it was 4/19 or 4/20 last year? I know it will be this week. So dont be shy and join in on the discussions. We have cake.

I mean I thought Giants at Philly week 1 was a possibility and people laughed at me on here. Philly barely beat the Giants twice last year and you got the NJ-NY market.

Sadly, no one will really give a shit about Minnesota exacting their revenge against Philly with a QB who played for another team last year. I certainly don't.

Philly I'm not so sure is presentable as a week 1 defending champion nation wide. Who knows? Philly vs Minnesota, just doesn't see that as a something I wanna see on my plate come dinner time in week 1.

With New England, you could always put them against Pittsburgh or something. Seattle I think got Green Bay.

Minnesota just is a joke organization. Or I guess their storyline and pathetic showing in the NFCCG and with all the Kirk Cousins ongoing whereabouts last month just annoyed the hell out of me.
I heard from  
Pete in MD : 4/16/2018 10:27 am : link
someone "connected" that there will be 16 games, 8 home and 8 on the the road, played between September and December, mostly on Sundays.
I can't imagine the NFL  
Mike from Ohio : 4/16/2018 10:35 am : link
would kickoff their season with the Superbowl champions playing a 3-13 team. It is usually another team expected to make a run. Despite what all of us here think about the upcoming year and the possibility for a decent season, the national view will be "Ugh, that came will be over at halftime."
Pats at Jags

would be a nice Sunday night game..
Would love us to get

an under the radar start but dont see it happening.

Something like home washington @ indy the first two weeks would be great.
I'll be at the Carolina and Atlanta..

Week 1 Thursday night is something I have heard is one of the possibilities.



I thought they already announced the Vikes were going to play Philly in the opener?


The NFL never announced that. WIP Radio in Philly reported that was what they were hearing, but it has never been confirmed by the league at all.
Giants dont look like they'll be playing in Dallas opening night

Who needs them anyway? They're all fat, broke and miserable.

Everyone thought my one buddy was (who is two years older than me) was legitimately my father. I guess it doesnt help he does look like hes 49.

That was mainly a dig at NJ Cowboy fans who don't have the luxury of seeing the Cowboys at home.
I haven't read through the thread yet...  
T-Bone : 4/16/2018 12:12 pm : link
but my lil brother has a few contacts within the Giants (very light contacts) and out of the blue last night he sent me and my dad (who lives just outside Charlotte) the following text message:

Quote:
I think the Giants may play in Carolina first game of the season


To which my dad (who is good friends with a number of Panthers players, including real tight with Kawaan Short because they belong to the same fraternity) replied:

Looks like it


I didn't ask them why they thought it (because I really don't much care at this point) but will ask and see if it's just them guessing or not. Normally I wouldn't have even bothered to post this but only did because of this thread. Feel free to take it for what it's worth.

Nice!

I have no insider info but Carolina makes a lot of sense to me because of the off season additions. When I first thought about our 2108 opponents Carolina was the first team that came to mind for our opener. I mean, how many years can we play Dallas in week 1?
id expect the schedule to release on thursday  
CGiants07 : 4/16/2018 12:22 pm : link
and we are due to open at home at 1pm so id guess chicago, tb or washington at home
If the NFL sticks to the script  
JonC : 4/16/2018 12:23 pm : link
schedule should begin to leak later this week.
I'll never rule out for Week 1...

Sunday Night at Dallas
It will be out this week, always released ahead of draft  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 12:32 pm : link
Pre-season was last week.

They will likely confirm some select games today or tomorrow, like NFL opener, MNF opener, and then the balance later on.

I am guessing we DONT open at Philly. Nothing that exciting about that.

More likely to be Vikes, or possibly an AFC team to spread the interest.
Someone should guess  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 12:33 pm : link
Home: Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans


Away: Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, San Francisco 49ers
We're due for a non-descript  
JonC : 4/16/2018 12:34 pm : link
home opener.
Based on London Games  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 12:35 pm : link
We know that we don't play Philly, Jax, or Tenn on the weeks they are there.

10/21 or 10/28. Each London Team has a bye following also.

We can almost assume we won't see these teams on 10/21, 10/28 or 11/4.

week 1 9/9 at Washington

week 14 12/9 at Houston
week 15 12/16 vs New Orleans (TNF)
week 16 12/23 at Philly
week 17 12/30 at Dallas

chose the away game  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 1:22 pm : link
for the opener since jewish holidays start that weekend. normally, giants refrain from home game then.

chose the away MNF and home TNF as the opposite as last year.

Quick update  
T-Bone : 4/16/2018 1:26 pm : link
My dad said he was guessing.

My lil bro said he saw it on line somewhere... so in other words, that was probably a guess too.

Once again, a guess  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 1:44 pm : link
but used the jewish holidays as no home game

used the london sked to eliminate games vs jax, phl, and tenn.

used the running approach of alternating home mnf games, and tnf. last year, we played a home mnf game to open, and played away tnf.

Something about Bears at Giants screams Monday Night football. They were here in 2016, not that many fans like when I saw Chicago in 2004 when Kurt Warner was QB.
Would have to check the year by year  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 8:19 pm : link
But they typically don't host MNF games 2 seasons in a row.

The last number of years, they host TNF and play away MNF or vice versa.
Traffic is awful on Monday nights up there

not enough primetime games as despite our 3-13 we will still get many more primetime games than jets

They are decent enough. There will probably be a fair amount of Giants fans there, although if it is the home opener, maybe not as strong as in other years.

Panther fans are generally friendly and welcoming. If it is a 1PM game, the early tailgaters will all be Giant fans. Panther fans start to get to the lots around 10AM or later.
Anyone else see Tampa Bay week 1
