    Thoughts?

    idk if playing on Thanksgiving is any more taxing than any other date and time. the only thing against both teams is a short week of preparation. then theres a 10 break between the next game.

    playing on any given game day has its advantages and disadvantage.

    Home field at the old Giants stadium, was definitely an advantage.
    The 2 billion dollar tuna fish can? ...not so much!
    I stopped buying into that traveling disadvantage stuff a long time ago. I just don't believe it means diddly!

    If the Redskins are awful and we are fighting for a playoff spot, then we are definitely in trouble.

    I'm just pissed that the Giants//Cardinals game is on Christmas Eve. There goes my chance of going to that game.

    Well being that we made the playoffs after a big layoff of many years of not making the playoffs we had to know we weren't getting any favors from the NFL with our schedule. my biggest complaint is three years in a row opening up In Dallas? I actually am really excited for a turkey day game!

    It's a division game in the road. Those are always the toughest matchups.

    How is being at home on Thanksgiving any more of an advantage than being home on another Thursday?
    LT (132.5) -> Strahan (141.5) -> Osi (65) -> Tuck (60.5) -> JPP (50) -> ???
