    I hope not although I'm sure the Patriots would be the best draw along with, maybe, the Cowboys. If I were Kraft I'd tell Goodell to go fly a kite, especially if it were one of our games.

    There is no way I'd want them playing a regular season game there. Total disruption.

    Obviously living over here I'd love it...didn't harm the Giants season in the long run but its not exactly ideal for the players.

    I came over for two games this season anyway so if we dont get the Pats in London I'll be back over to Foxboro :)

    Met a guy on a plane on Sunday who went to the Giants-Miami game. Said that it was a fantastic experience, whatever the game and the weather were like.

    They wouldn't need to put on the Pats or Colts to get a full house. Teams that were big in the 80s like the Skins or 9ers or Raiders or Bears would be a big draw.

    Move one of our west coast games there, it wouldn't make that big a difference.

    But the game scheduled for China which was cancelled this summer was supposedly put off due to the London game and would be rescheduled. That may no longer be true, but we could possibly still end up playing in China.

    After the dog game the Brits got this season w/ the Giants and Dolphins I won't be shocked if the Patriots are sent over to improve the NFL image in Britain. If it is the Pats they'd better be playing one of their west coast opponents. To make them play 4 games on the west coast and then another in London is beyond unfair.
    Patriots/Seattle in Wembley would be very cool and England would finally see a legit NFL game.

    You might of thought it was a dog of a game but the brits loved it. Most Brit football fans are also Rugby and soccer fans first. Best game of the year: MIA-Pit.

    After reading a Brit journo's observastions regarding Coughlin and how he loved the trip, he'd absolutely love it if he should come back anytime soon. ;) I hope Tony Siragusa gets to cover the next game over here seeing as he liked it here too. ;)

    If you don't want the same conditions why don't the NFL consider the Millenium Stadium? Fully retractable roof and the turf will more than likely be better suited. Holds a big capacity too and if the NFL can look past the fact the venue is not in London (thats what the draw is, London) IMO it may host a better game.
