I forgot our BYE is Week 11
that is great if you're playoff bound and the BigBlue God willing we will be ... but the teams we are facing I think that it being that late in the season is going to hurt us. Our lads will be exhausted come Nov 18th

Silver lining is we get 2 weeks prep on the Packers before a final 6 weeks of big boy games. I guess what doesn't kill ya only makes you stronger

dont get me wrong early BYE's suck *** but week 11?! ... wow

Stay Healthy and Hungry boys !!!

GO GIANTS !!!

10 games left, I see us going 6-4 the rest of the way if not 7-3.

To be honest, the schedule doesn't look anywhere near as daunting as it did during pre-season. Teams like the Steelers and Ravens simply aren't what they were a year ago.

And Atlanta is a "soft" 6-0.

^ Definitely. They've only just scraped out their last two wins. Could be choke time for them.

The Saints defense has been simply awful, the Packers have been erratic, Cincy struggles on D (I reckon this one will be a shoot-out). The hardest games look to be the divisional match-ups.

But of course, anything can happen.

I hope you guys are right but those are high caliber teams and Atlanta will definitely bring a grudge with them

hoping their grudge ends like SF's

They are, but they're not unbeatable. Look at the Ravens - they've given up 200 yards rushing in consecutive weeks. They've lost Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb for the season.

Never mind the names and reputations, look at how they've performed. There are no juggernaught-type teams this season, at least for now there isn't.

The skins are down Carriker and Orakpo (2 of the 3 reasons why they swept us last year), the Cowboys and Eagles don't look anything like they did when they played us. The Saints are downright horrible without Payton, the Packers are having o-line issues (so happy we didnt face them early on with our DOA-line), the Ravens and Steelers are not the teams they once were, and the Falcons are bound to choke sooner or later (not to mention I'm no longer afraid of a team "out for revenge" after this past Sunday)

Honestly, outside of our division which always hulks out against us, the one game I'm most worried about is the Bengals. I would NOT have seen that coming ni preseason...

That offense is scary. Brees is still Brees regardless of who's coaching him.

The good news is Drew won't be playing in his giant living room and we should be able to take advantage of that.

Only teams that worry me right now are philly and the Saints.

Which is why we need to make sure that the last game of the season vs the Eagles is meaningless.

After watching the beatdown we put on the Niners, none of those teams left on our schedule scares me.

The desperate teams worry me the most. Philly and Saints are 2 that we do play :/

Ravens D is looking pretty easy to exploit now that they lost Ray Lewis and their best CB too.

Torn Triceps. Some wonder if he will call it quits now on his career. Should be interesting to follow.

If I was as rich as Ray, I would've retired 2 years ago... that man has some serious passion for the game. I got a serious passion for a yacht and some champagne.

I actually like the late bye week. Gives the team a chance to catch it's breath and gear up for the season stretch run.

You guys have a bye before you play us. Ouch. I wish we could have a bye to prepare for you guys. Although last year we did and it hurt us so maybe it is a good thing we dont.

This. Teams like the Saints, Packers, can get hot at anytime. The Ravens will still be tough without Ray and Webb. The Falcons have been finding ways to win this year and Im not going to clown their strength of schedule. Undefeated is undefeated. We also have a tendency to lose games well all think we should win like both games vs the skins last year.

Granted I honestly think we can run the table the rest of the way but I dont anticipate that being the case. We will have off weeks and other teams will click against us etc.

We play the skins on Sunday hopefully we can contain RG3 and abuse their less than stellar defense so we can come out on top.

this schedule could prepare us for the playoffs. facing strong team week in and week out will make us stronger once the postseason arrives, of course we have to make it first

I hope we crush the saints and embarrass them in every way. I can't stand stat padder Brees.

The only thing that scares me are the divisional games because we're already in a 0-2 hole.

If the Giants play like they're capable of and we've got Canty and Phillips coming back eventually, this team is capable of running the table on the remainder of the schedule. I'll say that they wind up 12-4 and 1st place in the East.

And IMO. the harder the better in terms of the schedule. Last years difficult schedule prepped them for the playoffs. They were absolutely battle-tested like no other team.

It's like last year as some of us mention it, if they survive this tough stretch they will come out battled tested and hungry. The best part of the year has arrived .
