Giant fans knew this was a road game for them because last year it was a home game. Being the first game in the new stadium as a road team has to be a downer for them though.
As for it not being the third game.... another who cares IMO
All four of them are boring non-games which should be left by halftime. Hopefully when they finally agree to play football again after the lockout there will only be one such full price bullspit game that STH will be forced to buy and 9 regular season games
SG at first I was annoyed... MNF vs Giants... I was figuring regular rush hour traffic getting to game, then regualr game traffic due to all new parking situation. Etc. But after thinking about it I am not sweating it... No big deal... We will have the 1st ever tickets to a NFL game in the new stadium.

[QUOTE=vray;3542699]That is odd, they went out of their way to say that the jets will get the first home preseason game, but they make it against the Giants. Plus it is week one so the veterans wont be out.[/QUOTE]
Maybe they should have stared the season that way too! The commish could have found a way. It would have been a greatly watched event and the ratings would be sky high. Re the pre-season game? It figures!:steamin:
Yeah it'll be a night game. Since we're the home team, the stadium will be covered in green. As long as they don't try and sell this as a neutral field game and put up equal Giants stuff and Jets stuff I love it. This is a Jets game, not a Giants game.
We lucked out. We get the 1st and 3rd Preseason games, which, IMO, are the best ones to get at home. The first game of the year and the only Preseason game in which the starters play at least 70% of the game.
I could care less if its against the Giants because we are the home team.
