Exhibition schedule is a mess

New, comments

Have you taken a good look at the rest of the Giants' exhibition schedule? It's utterly ridiculous.

The Giants don't play again until Monday, Aug. 18 against Cleveland. That's 12 days between games Then, the Giants play on the 18th (Cleveland), Saturday the 23rd (Jets) and Thursday the 28th (New England).

That's two exhibition games in six days and three in an 11-day span.

That is insane scheduling. I know the reserves will get most of the snaps, but I don't see how the Giants can get to the season opener against the Redskins healthy after that stretch.

On top of which, that kind of screwball schedule will make having the Giants ready for the Sept. 4 opener a real challenge for coach Tom Coughlin.
