      So after the Bears game they trim about 10. Then after Pats game the must get rid of 27? That seems like a lot. That includes the 6-8 the put on the PS

      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!!!

        i love that the Pats are afraid of the Eagles and Giants and have planned accordingly, but to the point of this thread, some tough decisions, which is good, but still tough

          I thought the same thing. I have read conflicting articles regarding dates and roster size. Through ESPN, it says rosters are cut down to 80 players on Aug 28th then final cuts to 53 on Aug 31st. The I have found another article that mentions rosters are cut to 75 by Aug 28th and 53 by Sept 2nd? I also ready in 2 other articles that first cuts need to be done by 4pm EST on the 27th of Aug?

          Before the new CBA, I know teams carried 80 into camp and 1st cuts dropped you to 75 on the roster, then you cut the last 22 on final cuts after the final preseason game.
