Giants-pats SNF Opener

YorkAveGiant : 2/12/2019 7:06 am
Word seems to be leaking out of Park Ave that because of the NFL 100 Years Celebration or whatever, that they are going with the packers - bears to open on Thursday, thus moving the patriots to Sunday. By giving them the Giants and Eli...the NFL will get all the eyeballs they desire.
Just like college football for the Pats

From a national media exposure, the Giants are a heavy weight. There is a reason that NYG still has a lot of primetime exposure despite being a piss poor franchise the last half decade. They’ll get a handful of primetime games off of 5-11.

Conversely, during the Jets run in 09/10, they didn’t approach the amount of primetime games the Giants had during this bad stretch.
Well if that's the case

No team needs an easier open week one than the Giants. A week one open against the Pats is a one hundred percent lock to be a loss.

I give this team with this HC no chance to beat the Pats in that situation. That makes week two the whole season. Giants drop that one it will be another losing season and two 5 - 7 pick.

Lots of time between now and then. Would LOVE to see the Giants playing with a shot at the champs. Downside of a Giants W (I know, I’d still take this kind of downside) would be that every talking head would suppose the Giants are back and that Tawmy was toast.

Let’s goooo!!!

They’re still likely to be better than us next year. I’m fairly confident when a GB fan is looking at their schedule for 2019, they’re not penciling in an “L” next to the game in Jersey.
Well, they’ll get that game out of the way early

Yes, but the Giants and Patriots are ratings monsters. So while on paper the match you may not be appealing, there is still a historical component there, and both teams draw huge ratings.
Perfect way for Eli to start his final Super Bowl run...

Knocking off Brady for a fourth time. Probably more than any other QB in history, save for maybe Peyton.

Not too mention the Giants will be 0-0 and there is still hope for the season so the whole fan base will be watching. It's a smart play by the league. Get ALL the Giants fans for the TV ratings.

You make a great point & it’s why I think the NFL will showcase the Giants EARLY. In case the wheels fall off, they will front load their primetime schedule. Remember, the NFL will make it a point to showcase Barkley & Beckham.

If I am remembering correctly, there was a recent final preseason game between two teams that met on opening day. So I don't believe it's unprecedented............

That's right.

If you are going to put the Giants on TV, it best be done in the first seven weeks. Anything after that is risky.

The idea the Giants are ratings "monsters" assumes the team is good at the time. The Giants are not pulling in ratings when they are 1-7 and playing out the string by Halloween as we have seen the last number of years.

Agree that the time to play the Pats is in September...  
kinard : 2/12/2019 6:01 pm : link
... Pats treat September like an extension of training camp.

Gives us all a chance to watch Shurmer coach circles around Belichick (and if you believe that, I have some land to sell you).

Thanks for that. We needed to be reminded.

Like I said, we will never win again. Why? Because bad teams never turn things around.

Oh and one more thing, there isn’t one single giants fan here that hasn’t complained lately. Not. Fucking. One. Every single fan here has lamented this stretch of bad play and questioned things. Every. Single. One.

Every time you post shit like this it just sounds arrogant and condescending and out of touch. Just because some here choose to try and look on the bright side while keeping a balanced grasp on what is happening doesn’t mean those same fans don’t know which way the wind is blowing.

Gotta love how

I went to the ‘soft’ and the Official Grand Opening of the Stumble Inn.

Used to go there when it was called Mo’s Caribbean too.

The bar Brady’s on 81st & 2nd covered it’s name up in 07 & 11 with a banner that said Manning’s during those epic runs.
