    Facing the Cowboys Week 1 really benefits the Giants. Here's why:

    The Cowboys lost FOUR veteran defensive backs. Claiborne, Carr, Church, and Wilcox.

    What does this mean? They will target DBs in the draft and reshape their entire secondary outside of Byron Jones.

    Guess what? Those rookie DBs will get thrown into the fire Week 1....vs Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard. Welcome to the NFL.

    Advantage, Giants.

    It doesn't matter who our receivers are if we have no offensive line. It wasn't their "great" secondary that stopped us from scoring points last year. We also don't have Hankins to help stop Zeke. Advantage, neither team.

    Another "O-Line one-liner" guy who has no clue what he's talking about.

    I agree with the overall premise-- it will be best to catch Dallas early before the secondary gets their feet under them (if ever).

    But right now, it's not like there's guaranteed to be all new faces back there.

    As it stands we're looking at fielding Scandrick-Jones-Heath-Brown, meaning the only guy who hasn't earned a starter role at some point or another is Jeff Heath.

    You can tell who the casual fans are. "Offensive line blah blah blah"

    Keep throwing out that one-liner and thinking you have all the answers.

    Yeah, you got me figured bud. How about McAdoo calling the plays again? Is that a good enough reason to be pessimistic? After all he only had 16 weeks, not including pre season, to make adjustments based on what he had to work with and he couldn't/wouldn't do it.

    Is Fluker going to be our savior? No. Will Ellison hopefully improve the o line and help "I can't make adjustments McAdoo" to call more diverse plays? Possibly. Can Marshall make a difference? Absolutely, assuming Eli has tome to throw the ball, again back to the O line. Until I see otherwise, I'm seeing the majority of the returning starters from the same offensive line that couldn't create holes for running lanes and couldn't protect Eli long enough for him to even read the field. I see the same o line and play caller/HC in McAdoo that helped us be near dead last in almost every offensive statistical category there is. I see the same offense that couldn't put up 30 points just once.

    You're right, plenty to be optimistic about with the same o line returning.

    YEAH BUT WHY WE ALWAYS GO TO THEM SISSY ASSES FIRST ALL THE DAMN TIME???????? SMH
    Myron Guyton from tiny Eastern Kentucky and Greg Jackson from LSU solidified a Giants Defense as Rookies, maybe Starters, and came out of nowhere in the Draft to prove their worth. Parcells believed in them and they played and played well as Rookies helping the G-men to the SB in '90.....

    Another week 1 game at Dallas.
    The NFL is really getting creative with their scheduling.

    I can't believe the Giants have to travel out west 4 different times , plus Dallas and Tampa. that's a lot of travel. Why didn't they clump 2 of those west coast games together?
    1-OT Ryan Ramczyk
    2-TE Adam Shaheen
    3-DE Demarcus Walker
    4-RB Samaje Perine
    5-QB Joshua Dobbs
    6-CB Marquez White
    7-LB Ben Boulware
