Mark it in the calender

The schedule is out and if your worth your salt as a fan of football you’ve already seen and digested it.  Cue the talking heads predicting records and talking about ‘strength of schedule’;   even though only about 5-6 teams are guaranteed to be quality year in and year out.  Below is this year’s timeline and geography of your upcoming emotional rollercoaster that is N.Y Giants football along with some not so insightful thoughts. What do you want..its a holiday.

Week 1
Sept. 12, 1 p.m., Ch. 5
vs. Carolina

This game will get a ton of hype for the stadium that will remain nameless and of  the return of Fox’s crew after they basted the Gmen like a christmas ham last season.  Mmm.  Ham.

Week 2
Sept. 19, 8:20 p.m., Ch. 4
at Indianapolis (Sunday Night Football)

Eli/Peyton II: Cooper Strikes Back. NFL creams itself over advertisting possibilities.  No end to Oreo commercials. What are the chances that Eli is on the cover of the Colts program like Peyton was on the Giants’ home one back in 2006?

Week 3
Sept. 26, 1 p.m., Ch. 2
vs. Tennessee

Does Kiwi hold on to VY when the game is on the line?  Kerry Collins is welcomed back to the stadium with widespread indifference.

Week 4
Oct. 3, 8:20 p.m., Ch. 4
vs. Chicago (Sunday Night Football)

Chicago is one of those teams thats hard to read.  Does the half decent Cutler show up this season or the horrid version of a fat kid that played last year…GiantSpeculation can now revel in calling that one in a AC hotel room.

Week 5
Oct. 10, 1 p.m., Ch. 5
at Houston

The forever 8-8 Texans.  I will personally always hate this team because as a young collegian I remember being this franchise’s first ever win in 2002. Herman Moore was a Giant at the time. Rough.

Week 6
Oct. 17, 1 p.m., Ch. 5
vs. Detroit

Is there a chance the Lions are decent? Sure. This is the NFL. However, it’s unlikely.  I’m sure I’ll talk alot of smack this week about this one being a gimme… and the Lions will somehow win.

Week 7
Oct. 25, 8:30 p.m., ESPN
at Dallas

The first NFC East game. Primetime yet again.  We all know what to expect here.  A bitter Jerry Jones and hopefully Justin Tuck stealing Romo’s girl.  This year Eli leaves an upper decker in the can instead of an autograph.

Week 8

Eli goes to Cancun.  Called out by the media for not loving the game.

Week 9
Nov. 7, 4:05 p.m., Ch. 5
at Seattle

Pete Carrol’s return to the league should be interesting.  I always thought he was an decent coach at the NFL level that really never got a chance.  Lets face it, the Jets could have done worse back in the day.

Week 10
Nov. 14, 4:15 p.m., Ch. 5
vs. Dallas

Dallas at home. I’m pretty sure the red uniforms are banned, but please don’t break those out ever again.  We’ll probably start to have an idea of how  good this team is at this point in the season.  Blood pressure escalates.

Week 11*
Nov. 21, 8:20 p.m., Ch. 4
at Philadelphia (Sunday Night Football)

Hopefully this team is getting dominated on the field and in the standings. They’ll never be my most hated team in the division as long as Dallas lives on, but they are getting close. Plus Dallas hasn’t done a thing in over a decade.

Week 12*
Nov. 28, 1 p.m., Ch. 2
vs. Jacksonville

If we select Rolando this Thursday, two players on the field will have Crohns Disease at the same time. David Gerrard and Rolando later film a public service ad.

Week 13*
Dec. 5, 1 p.m., Ch. 5
vs. Washington

The new McNabb’s coming into the new digs.  Anyone else think week 13 is a little late for the first Injuns game of the year?

Week 14*
Dec. 12, 1 p.m., Ch. 5
at Minnesota

Well the Giants had to play the Vikings in December.  The NFL has deemed it a tradition in late season scheduling. Heres to not being down 30 at halftime this season!

Week 15*
Dec. 19, 1 p.m., Ch. 5
vs. Philadelphia

Huge game against Philly late in the season? I never would have thought.  Osi has Winston Justice flashbacks and sacks Kolb 7 extra just because he can.  Things are probably thrown at the tv at points in this one.

Week 16*
Dec. 26, 4:15 p.m., Ch. 5
at Green Bay

The frozen tundra in the cold. Brings back some fine memories. Except for Tynes acting like a drunk scotsman till attempt number 3.  Corey Webster kisses the turf before the kickoff.

Week 17*
Jan. 2, 1 p.m., Ch. 5
at Washington

Playing for playoff seeds? One would only hope so.  Jason Campbell watches forlornly from the sidelines.

*- Time subject to change because of flex scheduling.
