Why not Week 16 in the Dome?

Since we had a "HOME" game at Giants Stadium last year, wouldn't it stand to reason that since we're back in NOLA our "AWAY" game would be in the Thunder Dome?

Can anyone enlighten my ignorance on why didn't the NFL make an adjustment to the schedule with the Giants game upcoming? Was it a "home" game strictly for the media? Or did Benson pocket the lion's share of the gate when then played in the Meadowlands?

Your thoughts gang...

media hype gang. thats all. we beat Carolina so they were hoping for a feel good story. The NYG fans went out of their way at the game but it was no home field, sure tommy boy got some perks out of it. That we can be sure of. we are talking about benson here

Once the sched was announced - THIS is the game I want to win. That "home" game was horrible. I hope we win big this week. Giants fans have little class.

My best reason for why the game should be on the road: We are 5-2 on the road, and 4-3 at home.

We have had poor home performances for years now. I like the fact that we are a tough road team, but damn, we need to get some kind of home field advantage going somehow. Is their anyway to get the Whistle Head Guy, right behind the visitor's bench? : )

100TH POST!!!!!! What do I get?

I had to save up 200 Frankenberry box tops to get that 100th post. I also got a magic whistle out of it!
