    There aren't any....that's my point.....typically with a schedule there's give and take....but this year the NFL just took took took.....they didn't schedule back to back West Coast games like the Giants specifically requested so that they could stay out West instead of bouncing back and forth every other week.

    Should have clarified......it's inconvenient as a Season Ticket Holder.....5th year in a row they had an away opener.....the only 2 times they've had a home opener over the last 8 years was to open the new stadium and to celebrate the Super Bowl.....last home opener non-midweek was in 2010!!! So they bump the opener to week 2.....fine but now it's on a frickin Monday....got to either take off work or leave early to make it. Then they bury their last 4 in the last week of November and December......frigid temps.....nothing a few pops won't fix but come on.

    As a fan I love 1pm games....if it was up to me every Giants game would be 1pm......take the prime timers and 4:25pm EST starts and shove them (West Coast 4:25'ers I get).

    gotcha....I was thinking two west coast games in a row was not optimal but I get what you are saying.
    I dont go to every home game maybe if I did I would have issues with the late games but I rather like the later games.

    Opponents we face after their bye week

    @ Broncos

    vs. Seahawks

    vs. Rams (we both share this bye week)

    vs. Chiefs
    welp might as well chalk up that KC game a loss. Andy Reid doesn't lose after a bye ugh

Took it up the *** across the board. Home games late only benefit you if you can get through the guillotine they set up for you early on.....this schedule blows.

    This has nothing to do with being scared to play certain team at certain times or anything like that.....the reality is this scheduled is highly inconvenient for both the players and the fans.
    how does it effect the fans at all? only one home game is primetime and the rest of the home games are normal Sunday times. and thats what happens when you're a good team, you get primetime games. i would think it's better for the fans that the one night home game is in September and not December..

    and this they shafted the Giants thing is such BS. not every team has the perfect schedule they want. last year we also started the year with 4 of 7 on the road, same as this year. Giants also got blessed with not traveling further than Cleveland after week 7 last year. thats 10 straight weeks on the eastern time zone. it happens. some years we get a good schedule some times we get a rough schedule. it just so happens we played 2 west divisions this year so we have to travel west 4x

    the only thing i would say they should change is having to play the two west divisions in the same year. but theres nothing that can be done about that now

    on Mike and Mike this morning they were saying the biggest factor (if its even a factor at all) is the lack of down time the Giants will have compared to other teams. Its a -22 hours.

    I clarified above.....meant season ticket holders.

    Did you read the article.....the schedule could LITERALLY not be any more inconvenient from a rest, travel, opponent's schedule standpoint. How does that not equate to getting the shaft? Just cuz it happens doesn't make it right.

    I feel like if they could get away with it the schedule makers would do this:

    Week 1 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 2 - @Cowboys MNF
    Week 3 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 4 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 5 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 6 - @Cowboys MNF
    Week 7 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 8 - BYE (to be held in Arlington, TX)
    Week 9 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 10 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 11 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 12 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 13 - @Cowboys TNF
    Week 14 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 15 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 16 - @Cowboys SNF
    Week 17 - @Cowboys SNF

    based on last year we would be 16-0....
