  • Predict the 2012 Schedule:



    I know, it isn't even April yet, but anything involving the Giants is always interesting to discuss. Besides, its better then listening to the media talk about Tim Tebow.




    Take a shot at guessing the 2012 schedule for the NY Giants.




    (2011 PLAYOFF TEAM in BOLD)




    1- Cowboys (Opening Night Sept 5th)
    2- Browns
    3- @Bengals
    4- Bucs
    5- Eagles (Sunday Night)
    6- @Panthers
    7- BYE
    8- @Redskins
    9- @Falcons
    10- Steelers (Monday Night)
    11- Saints
    12- @Cowboys (Thanksgiving Thursday 4pm)
    13- @Ravens
    14- RedSkins
    15- @49ers (Monday Night)
    16- Packers (Sunday Night)
    17- @Eagles




    I could see one home one away Monday Night games, 2 Sunday Night games, our Thursday game being Thanksgiving vs the Boys, the season ending strong once again.




    Oh and for the 2013 Season, we play Peyton and the Broncos at home!

    Re: Predict the 2012 Schedule:

    I could be wrong but I beleive that there is a rule about only having 5 primetime games in a season, with the exception of week 17 and playoffs ......

    So your schedule ....

    I don't thanksgiving game .... that being the 6th prime time ...

    I would change a Monday night to a NFL Network Thursday night football game ..

    49ers and Steelers will be earlier in the season

    we will have 3 division games in December

      Re: Predict the 2012 Schedule:

      My Guess:

      1. Cowboys (Opening Night Sept, 5th)
      2. @ Panthers
      3. Redskins
      4. @ Eagles (NFL Network Thursday Night Game)
      5. @ Bengals
      6. Steelers
      7. @ 49ers (Monday Night)
      8. Bye Week
      9. Buccaneers
      10. @ Falcons
      11. vs Packers (Sunday Night)
      12. @ Cowboys (Thanksgiving Game)
      13. @ Ravens
      14. Browns
      15. Saints
      16. @ Redskins
      17. Eagles

      The last 2 years we have had the Cowboys & Redskins in Week 17. I think we will probably get the Eagles this time. And of course the Giants will play more division games down the stretch.

      If you look at how I made this schedule you will see that I have some AFC North & NFC South teams close by each other on the Giants schedule.

        I do not know much about the schedules or how it works but wouldnt our season opener be considered our thursday game? I doubt we would get two in one year.

            No way we play in Dallas on Thanksgiving. They usually put a bad team against them because every house in America watches the game anyway. They don't need a good team for a ratings draw.

                Tough schedule no matter how its laid out
                Football has been very, very good to us.
                After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                4-New York Giants!!!
                5-NE
                Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                  It is only a Wednesday because they had to move it due to a conflict with presidential debate. It is always designed to be a Thursday game though. Just because they had to move it because of conflict does not mean it wouldn't count.

                    Let's worry about it when it actually comes out. But I wouldn't be surprised if we got a crazy hard schedule like you surmise.

                        10-6 ... we win the division as the 3rd or 4th seed.

                        We beat the Lions in the Wildcard round but lose to the Saints (who we beat in the regular season) at the Super Dome in the Division round of the playoffs.
                        I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                              I do believe that there will be a lot more division games down the stretch for the entire league from here on out. Goodell did that last season so that earlier weeks could be cancelled if need be due to the lockout without having to heavily re-align the schedule... and struck paydirt when more teams remained relevant towards the end of the season. Expect that trend to continue throughout the league, it's just good business...

                              I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.
