The Jets will “host” the Giants tonight at MetLife Stadium, as the locals will square off in their annual preseason tilt. The meaningless matchup has people talking.

Two such people, the Dynamic Radio Duo that is Boomer Esiason & Craig Carton, started off this Football Friday edition of the Morning Extravaganza discussing the exhibition contest. It has certainly spawned plenty of side stories, especially considering it’s a “meaningless game,” a “meaningless game” that Craig has called “fascinating.”

Will Eli and the Giants’ offense wake up?  Will the Jets’ secondary be further exposed?  Who will lead the infamous J-E-T-S Jets-Jets-Jets chant?

Last night Boomer spent some time watching Chip Kelly’s offensive machine , which was on display down in Philadelphia against the Steelers.  According to Boomer, all signs point to Kelly’s Eagles — and Romo’s Cowboys, for that matter — causing fits for defenses around the league when the games start to matter.

As for the Yankees, they made quick work of the Astros yesterday afternoon in the Bronx, this after a players-only meeting took place prior to the game.  The win offers a slight glimmer of hope with regards to the Bombers’ playoff chances, which is something, I suppose.

So all of that, Boomer’s fantasy football prowess and Craig’s red-carpet experience made for a well-rounded show open. You’re all very welcome…
