    OL, is the Belichick getting back at us for the SB loss? Haha. If the Patriots starters do get extended time, do we play our starters longer? It would be a great test heading into the regular season but I surely don't want to risk injuries.

    It doesn't matter what the Pats do, it doesn't matter what the score is. The game doesn't count. TC has a plan and I'm sure he will stick to it no matter what BB does with his starters.

      I agree. The important thing is we don't get anyone hurt and jeopardize next week which is the important game
      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!!!

        doesnt matter and BB wouldnt use a preseason game as 'get back you' for the SB.

            Will see how that turns out. May be another good year before we even find out if it mattered or not

              I wonder if Belichick will send out Ballard for the coin toss LOL LOL...

              Seriously though, who knows why Belichick is doing this. I know some of the players feel like the offense isn't gelling so well. He might be sending a message to his team. Or maybe he's just tired of losing to the Giants....who knows.

                T'was a joke, I don't think he got Ballard to get back at us ^^

                    If the Pats starters play longer it will just be a better test for our 2s and 3s.

                      Let him risk his starters. We stick to the plan. I don't expect Eli to play more than one series tonight. Unless they want to give him a little time to sync up with Hakeem.

                        Keep in mind that the Pats get 11 days to heal up for their season-opener; whereas the Giants just have a week to prepare for Dallas. That's a HUGE difference.

                          That's exactly what I'm saying. No need to match Patriots starters with our starters. Throw the back ups in there and let them get tested and gain experience from higher caliber opponents.

                            That's what I'm saying. We have nothing to prove starter wise and with just 4/5 practices between pats game and opener with Dallas no need to play starters at all IMO. Maybe a series or just a few snaps. Pats with 11 days have different set of goals

                              BB does things differently. While all the other teams play their starters the 3rd game, BB doesnt. He waits until the last game before the preseason ends. good test for the backups
                              Don't take it personal, we're just debating.
