    Giants have the least enviable schedule

    From ESPN Schedule Analysis:
    Overall, the Giants might have the NFL's least enviable schedule, based on ESPN senior analytics specialist Brian Burke's analysis. They'll have an NFL-high four games against teams coming off their bye and a net total of minus-22 days of rest compared to their opponents. (The next-highest lack of rest days belongs to the Detroit Lions at minus-12.)

    Here is some analysis from Football Outsiders on how relative rest affects competitiveness. Suffice it to say, you want to avoid playing teams who are coming off their bye.

    Finally, the Giants have four trips into the Mountain or Pacific time zones, giving them more travel miles than any East Coast team with the exception of the Jaguars, who have a home game in London.

    Makes no sense why they always do this to the Giants. IF I remember correctly they had as many all almost as many games vs teams last year coming off Byes?? Why do they not spread it around. IT puts the team at a disadvantage. And also they were one of the teams with the least amount of rest last year and now add Four West Coast Trips to that mix.. They could of granted their request and made at least one of them back to back out there so they could of stayed on the West Coast. But they have them hopping back and forth for Home and Away games across the Country like Jack Rabbits. So dumb

    They also play 4 of the first 6 away from home similar to last year when they played 4 of the first 7 on the Road. And do not have a Home Game against the NFCE till week 14... Wow. They are setting them up to be out of it before they get those 3 of last 4 at Home

    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 would think that Denver Broncos have toughest schedule. They play Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, NE Patriots, NY Giants and also have to play Oakland Raiders twice and Kansas City Chiefs twice as well.

    If NY Giants are a good team then the schedule should be fine. I kind of like all the exciting games against good competition.

    End of story.
    "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
    "No...I didn't."
    "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

    I would think part of the reason may be because NY Giants are a big market team and the fans travel well; i alwys see a lot of NY Giants fans at away games.
    NFL may want to get maximum exposure for some of the teams coming off buy weeks.

    I think the Giants schedule doesn't look bad. As well, these are athletes with trainers to prep them for the travel etc...I think the travel is a factor at a micro level. Basically it's an excuse. You want to prove to everyone how good you are? Jump into the snake pit and take whatever they throw at you. If you want people to think you are great, make excuses.

    Holy ****! Are people STILL whining about the schedule?

    I can't wait to watch this board blow up over our 1st rd draft pick that most everyone here has never heard of.
    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.
