Not A Bad Choice

I’m not disappointed, but I’m also not thrilled with the NFL’s decision to have the Cowboys serve as the Giants season-opening opponent. Sure, Dallas-Giants is always a good game, but there were some other interesting possibilities.

Start with the Green Bay Packers. They would have been a fun way to open the season considering the playoffs and the game they played in December.

An awesome choice would have been the Steelers. Consider the history of the two franchises and the somewhat unique fact that their family ownerships have combined to produce an Oscar-nominated actress.

I also think the Saints would have been a great matchup, but obviously the NFL isn’t going to showcase the Saints right now.

So, we get Dallas. It’s better than when the Giants last won the Super Bowl and had to play Washington, but I think Green Bay or Pittsburgh would have been better.

    I think it would be a Howard Cosell moment, “a clash of titans within the NFC East, the defending Super Bowl champions and their bitter division rivals.”
