    The home losses to the Giants have been more about the Cowboys beating themselves than the Giants beating the Cowboys.

    The breaks the Giants have had at the new stadium are ridiculous. Dez' Pinky finger wasn't even the worst of them. For me it was that bogus interception that Witten intially swatted down, then it bounced off his foot into a defenders arms in the inaugural game. That set the tone for the Giants fortune at AT&T.

    i would say both first team offense has looked average especially in the red zone.

    I agree, the bounces the Giants get are ridiculous.. The interception really killed..

    But, Dallas still did not do enough to win any of those games. I don't like them playing at home. So, I don't think they win.

    Probably because it is pre season and you can't judge the Giant scrubs putting up more points than the Dallas scrubs. If you meant by the Giants' Starters putting up more points than the Dallas Starters?? Well, it still doesn't matter.. It's still preseason.

    Not really worth a face palm, just not relevant.

    Now that the stadium is named AT&T stadium the curse of the Giants should be lifted.....hopefully the Giants pre-season offensive ineptitude continues.....

    Looking at DAL schedule, I believe that Dallas at 4-0/1 would be a great start towards a rough schedule.

    I honestly don't think it's all that rough of a schedule. I think for once, things are looking good as they possibly can from the schedule makers.

    Think about it.

    We get to catch the Giants off guard early with our new scheme, and then we get a bye week before we play them again in November.

    Yeah, we have 5 tough games against non divisional opponents with MIN, GB, DEN, NO and CHI, but of those teams, we get the 2 toughest at home (GB, DEN) as well as the Vikes.

    It will be daunting to go into NO, but we get that mini-thanksgiving bye week before we go to Chicago... not to mention, the Bears have floundered in early December the last 2 years.

    Not to mention, we finally start and end at home rather than the complete opposite.

    Based on last year I agree but then there are always teams who jump up and surprise. Hard to say right now which teams will jump up. I don't think many saw the Seahawks as much of a contender before last season.

    No, the facepalm isn't relevant. But, no one should take preseason seriously (beside players trying to make a team), unless a MAJOR injury happens to a main player. IMO.

    If that's the case, then this whole thread is irrelevant, agree?

    I ain't assumin' nuthin'. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Gnats have their offense well oiled and ready to go by the time they play us. I hope the Cowboys create a great game plan for them.

    we get a TD from Dez and Hanna and 3 FG from Bailey

    Sarcasm? We could very easily end up going 0-5 against the teams you mentioned. It will be very tough for us to even win 2 (2-3) of those 5 games. And if you throw in our division rivals, well that's another 6 very close games. So all in all we have at least 11 games that will be TOUGH, I honestly don't see how this is an easy schedule. We even probably have one of the hardest schedules in the league.

    Yes, if we're going by first-team offense's scoring in the preseason, the game will end up something like 12-9.

    That is the beauty of having Garrett as HC. If he throws the ball he's called "Tecmo". If he runs it he's being too conservative. You've got a stick to beat him with either way. Should you be so inclined...
