Oh, and what was the most excellent result from the Giants losing that game to the Jets?</P>


Wellington Finally fired Allie Sherman right after they lost... that's how*important everyone considered that game to be.</P>


the day Allie was fired = one of the best days in Giants history... and we saw how long it took to undo what he did.... he was a miracle I'll agree with you about Allie, however the Mara family feud was ther real undoing. They would have fixed the damage Allie did a lot earlier if it weren't for the brothers' conflicts. had they not had the feud they might have agreed to a GM to run the football operations long before they finally hired George Young. he's the one who finally turned the corner and brought us back. Hiring Parcells and drafting LT were the real miracles</P>


yeah, rocky, we've discussed this on here before.* The brothers allowed Allie free reign because they were too busy fighting with each other*and he ruined the team, starting in 1964.</P>


Rozelle finally interceded in '79 and recommended we get a GM... George.* 'TY Pete.</P>


With an 150 page thread it's hard at times to tell what's been discussed before..lol

Hey, rocky... no sweat. I know you haven't been on to this thread until recently. Your points are worth repeating in any case, and we appreciate your input. Like I said before, your questions and input have brought a new vitality to this thread, asking questions we hadn't thought of before. TY</P>

Rocky - was I right about our other Rocky? I remember all the hoopla about him, and the doubts NYers had about the pick. I was at the Yale Bowl when he ran back his first kickoff, his first Pro touch,for a TD, in a preseason game at the Yale Bowl. The crowd went wild, and prayed he would be the real deal. Unfortunately, as you know, he wasn't the savior. I always thought he was just a little too small for the toll of the big bodies he had to play against.

hahaha.. Went to Bermuda in '82 with my wife... our 15th anniversary, and had dinneron the baxk veranda ofthe Princess. </P>


Funny story... on the way to the Princess you pass Marley's Beach/Cove. Our reservationist called there and asked if she could get accomodations for Mr. Zimmermann... me. They said SURE. We got a fantastic private home, 150' up on a cliff. It was the same home featured in The Deep with Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bissett. The metal elevator constructed on the cliff for that movie was still there when we went. Anyways, we are at the front desk, checking in and i say, "Reservations for Zimmermann," The reservationist turns white (lol) and says, "You are not Mr. Zimmermann". I say, yes I am... here's my ID.</P>


The owners of that home lived in Washington DC, and allowed it to be used ONLY by their closest friends. A Mr. Zimmermann was their best friend and used the home several times a year. When my reservationist said, Mr. Z, they just assumed it was the Washington DC friend.</P>


They had to let us use it, of course, and it was fabulous.</P>

Do you think Ruegamer is better than some others we're counting on for depth on this squad? He always did a solid job in the past. </P>


Can he snap on PK's and XP's?... I don't remember. Just know DeOssie on punts and Alford on PK's and XP's, and now Alford is out. Koets? DeOssie. FG's by Tynes are tense enough without worrying about the snap.</P>

I thing Ruegamer was a solid back up....but starting to wear down.....

he is a guard but can play all over the line....

pretty sure he played some center in Green Bay...

that makes him pretty valuable.....

I think the backups we have will be ok....except the rookie Beaty...

he is a little light......been getting thrown around so far...

he will get better.

im really looking forward this weeks game to see if this O line can provide some time for the passers....

Beatty is 6'6" and 307. I see them working with him to develop his upper and lower body strength and I wouldn't be surprised to see him at 320-325 next year.</P>


Ruegamer's 33, and just released by Seattle... so, you must be right about him wearing down.</P>

I actually thought I had it... was thinking about a play on words Parcells would use to replace 'Suburbanites' in a derogatory manner... and I thought of him calling them an urban blight, or similar. So, I looked it up and think I found it... BUT, I think one of our other guys might remember, so I'll give them time to get it and take some creditwithout me giving a 'looked up' answer. I'll post later tonight if no one else remembers.</P>


A good question, and I looked up some facts. We had 3 bad games in a row on the ground starting against San Fran on a Monday night game, 12/1/86... then against Wash and St. Lo the next 2 games. This was the kind of motivational jab that parcells was excellent at, and it worked. The running game was smooth in the last game against GB (we crushed them... one of the more satisfying games I ever attended), and throughout the playoffs.</P>

I remember the play clearly, just like LT's INT return for a TD before the half, but I can't remember the participants. I'll say LT hit Montana (could have been Martin, Burt, or marshall, too) and that Herb handed to Kenny Hill.</P>

I figured I was going to pitch a zero on the Montana INT to Welch. But, the other answer was a direct quote from Parcells. BUT, yes, I do remember Club 13...we got 13 whole yards against SF... less than 1 yard per carry. Club 13 was a lot better diss than Urban Renewal.</P>

Did some research. Collins was a rookie in '86. I thought he came along in '85. He probably returned kicks because he was a rook. I'll always remember mark for one thing... he was always on his man like glue, but made the transition to run support better than most I've ever see, and if by some freak a RB got past out front 7, Collins was always there to stop him... he was a solid tackler... no whiffs from that man.</P>


I had to look up his safety, and then I remembered... in a 12-10 win over Dallas in '88. Big 2 points. The guy he tackled was Darryl Clack, a sub RB with Dallas for 4 years.</P>


Yes, I remember wondering about the 2 games against Detroit, too. I don't know that I ever read an answer. But, in '87, the strike year, we were last in our division. The East played the West Conference in '88, andour other 2 game in the NFC were Detroit. In '87 Detroit and Tampa tied for last in their division, so rightfully we should have had a game against Detroit and Tampa.</P>

why in 1988 did we play the Lions twice?i think at that time there were 28 teams.2 five team divisions and one one four team division per conference.the 2 last place teams in the 5 team division were usually scheduled to play each other twice.i loved collins too,i was saddened to see him go to kc,but was estatic when he went through waivers and the g-men picked him up so he could retire as a giant.

now, that's memory. I do remember it happening, but the cloud in my brain prevents me from seeing anything other than the doll's face. Maybe it was Parcell's... nah, old grumpy man wouldn't do that. I'll say McConk.</P>


But, a good question. </P>

I'm going to guess Big Shakey, Curtis McGriff. Probably not the right answer but Curtis needs an MB mention.

I know Karlisle kicked a long FG for the first score... I'll say 48-50 yards. I can't imagine his second record. I only have the game on VHS and don't have any VCR's anymore., so I can't run through it. All my old VHS tapes (hundreds) are totally useless. Anybody want to buy the Giant SB XXI on tape?

<FONT size=4>Who was the very first Host of ESPN's Monday Night Matchup ?</FONT></P>


keith jackson, then replaced by Giff.* I think jackson preferred college footbal, unless he was replaced simply because Giff was a bigger draw. Those years with Giff, Dandy Don, and Cosell were great with Don constantly tossing out incredibly subtle digs at Howard that passed right over his head. meanwhile, you could just tell Giff wanted to bust out laughing, but he couldn't.* I jusy KNOW that Giff reveled in dumb jock Meredith getting the best of pompous know it all Cosell, and Cosell never knowing it... it was fun</P>

I think you are thinking of Monday Night Football itself. Those guys were'nt on ESPN Monady Night Matchup. The first host was probably Chris Berman.

The Pain from picking Dayne. Shaun Alexander was available. </P>


I can't say Dayne was our biggest bust ever, but he's in the top 5.</P>


But, Tiki turned out OK, wouldn't you say? Which means we should have picked something other than a RB.</P>

I'd have to guess MOntana for the broken yardage record.</P>


I can't remember anyone throwing 5 TD passes in an NFC or AFC Championship. I know Staubach and Marino each had a 4 TD Champ. Game, but I'm blank on anyone getting 5.</P>

Little blond kid in the back of the class raises his hand.</P>


That was way backaround 1969-70, when Nixon was our pres. At that time I think Bill Parcells was still coaching defense with Army, and was forging a friendship with Bobby Knight, their hoopscoach. </P>

I have been posting for weeks that we don't need an elite #1 from another team... that our current group was good enough to get us all the way, and were every bit as good as the receivers of '86 and '90.</P>


Well the '90 stats blew me away. Our TOP receiver had 39 catches! How did we win it all without a true #1? hahahaha.</P>


Anyways, this will shock you... match the player to his total catches - see who can get the most right:</P>


OJ Anderson; Steven Baker; Mark Bavaro; Mo Carthon; Howard Cross; Rodney Hampton; Bobby Ingram; Lionel Manuel, Dave Meggett</P>


Catches: 39; 33; 32; 26; 26; 18; 14; 11; 8</P>

Hey guys. I just got the dvd 10 greatest Giant games from Amazon. Really it might be considered the 10 greatest of the last 23 years but that's not important. I had these games on tape but over the years the tapes degrade. Anyway, I highly recommend the box set. They do a nice job with it.

Last night I watched the first dvd, Giants vs 49ers from the 1986 playoffs. Simms threw 21 TDs in 1986. Montana, who was hurt part of the year, threw 8. Anyone want to guess how many INTs they each threw? The answer may surprise you.

Simms had 22 ints in 86

Not sure about Montana but I'll take a stab at it, 7

I know jints10 has Simms INT's correct, but, I'll raise his 7 INT's by Montana by 1 INT and guess Joe had 1 per game = 8</P>

hell yeah guys..... two longest drives in SB history... now thats Giant football..... they both were 2 of the best drives I think ive ever seen.....that I remember.....</P>


Yes, if you had a SB record, that would be the one that best reflected our teams. Chip away at the first down marker. The '86 team also had a similar offense that year. </P>


I love it... wear their D down, and keep ours fresh.</P>

wow...Meggett the leading receiver.....I wouldnt have thought that... those numbers are astonishing considering what we accomplished that year..... the 1990 Giants set an NFL record that year for having the lowest (what?) in NFL history?</P>


Turnovers</P>


too easy Zimmy ......too easy..... ;)</P>


it's nice to review these old SB teams, like '90, to see what it takes to win. It blew me away to see Meggett as the leading receiver, with only 39. It puts into prespective that we don't need a great WR corp to win. </P>


When driving to SB XXV, with my son, we spent the whole trip discussing our team. We both knew we'd have a great chance because we rarely had a turnover. </P>


This year's team has solid D, like the '90 team, and you'd assume Manning has an adge over Hoss in '90. So, there's no reason we can't go all the way with this team</P>


I dunno Zim....its arguable... when ole Hoss was on ...he was on.... plus he was deadly on that roll out....not to mention pretty darn accurate...... and that fool could run like hell..... I loved Hoss as a Giant.... what was significant about the opening 3rd quarter drive in that SB? ....and what team most recently out did what they did on that drive?
Giants held the ball for like 9 or 10 min. scoring drive in a Super Bowl
Giants just broke it in Super Bowl 42
</P>


I'll second jints10... I know that he's right. I think XXV was a 9:20 drive to open the 3rd Qtr... I just looked at it last week, so I know I'm close</P>


</P>


</P>


that 3rd qtr drive was a masterpiece, kept alive by ingrams catch and run for a first down. also, the g-men closed out the first half with an 7-8 minute drive. </P>

They would probably have to have 100 games to keep us happy but to answer the question, both Simms and Montana each threw one more INT than they did TD that year. I remember 86 pretty well, I don't remember Simms throwing that many INTs.

The playoffs from 86 (3)
the playoffs from 90 (3)
the Sehorn game vs the Eagles 2000 playoffs
giant vikes nfc championship
reg season giants vs eagles 2006
sb 42

Those are the 10 in the dvd box. I would have liked to see giants vs chiefs (85). There was a giant dallas game years back that ended 38-35 or so, I would have liked to see. Any other games you guys would have put in?

This player was the very last selection in the 9th round of the '83 draft. He was an overachiever and, during his first preseason game against the Jets, Parcell's said to him... "Son, you can play for my team any time."</p>


He became a fan favorite in his 1 year with the Giants for beating the odds and always giving total effort.</p>


</p>


Here's a link on a nice story about him... it's 4 pages, but worth it:</p>

http://www.nytimes.com/1986/09/14/sports/tuggle-s-fight-against-time.html?&amp;pagewanted=1</p>i remember reading this article when i was about 17 growing up in south river, nj,and thinking that 25 was living a pretty long life.now,at 42,i realize that this brave young man's life was cut way too short.i thought when he made the team in '83 he would wind up being my man carpenters' eventual replacement.for all the younger fans who never got a chance to see him play,you missed something truly special.R.I.P.,TUGS.some of us out here still miss you.

Hey wait a min 9th round in 83 was Ali Haji Sheek

I went to school down there from 84-88 . thank God for Peoples Express and $39 round trips. I tended bar to make it to games

How many years of lousy football "We had enough"

YATittle1962

McQuay, in his one year, had 55 carries for 240 yds; 7 punt returns for 81; 25 KO returns for 689 yds. (27.6 avg. pretty good.)
I dont know Zim but back then we kept getting guys that didn't pan out
</p>


'74? Those were brutal times for us. Mara's arguing with each other and no really knowledgeable GM until '79. Poor talent judging back then. Like I said, McQuay was small and tough. But, he was a small guy, and a trimmer build than a guy like Meggett. He was serviceable, and I remember "All the way McQuay". But, you couldn't use guys like him to build a steady winner. Like Leon Bright, he was pretty fearless... geezuz, you'd have to be fearless to be 5'8" and 175 and run the football in the NFL.</p>
Yea the dark days Tim and Well

Bad drafts year after year

But we had our hero's


pre George Young....

I really think Andy Robustelli was good for the FO......

he just happened to be there in the middle of an internal war....

I really think he had the teams best interest in mind ...and he had very good intentions.....was a good business man as well...

turning down his ex teammate Modzelewski for the head coaching job had to be painful....

but he was right in thinking that another ex Giant player as a coach would have sent the city into an uproar..

I know Andy really believed in Van Pelt....and took a ton of flack for his contract.....

those were tough times for the team


who was the WR that wore the odd #27 in 1974?

I always thought that was odd for a WR back then

She rarely criticized a player... except Tarkenton and Morton, neither of whom she liked.She knewwe weren't good enough, but appreciated the player'sefforts. She knew Tim and Well didn't get along, which was the root of it all, but she thought Well was a saint, so shewouldn't ever blame him. Mostly, she blamed the whole thing on Allie... God, how she hated that man for dismantling our defense. But, even in those bad years she was anxious to go to every home game to cheer for the guys that did play well... guys like Mendenhall who was 100% effort on every play. The only year she hated going was '75, because she hated Shea Stadium... it really was a badplace for football.</P>


Yeah, she praised the players from the 50's and early 60's, and the team commeraderie thatthey always seemed to have. But, once we started to put the pieces together again under George Young she appreciated those teams, because they were throwbacks to those early teams... defense, and pound the ball. Where most people watch the skill players on every play, she was watching the blocking and tackling on the line. She'd frequently turn to me and say, "Who carried that?", while the RB was buried under a pile, because she wasbusy watching the line play.</P>

Archie Manning was sacked 4 times.....who got those sacks?

Archie matched those 4 sacks with 4 picks.....who got those picks?

.....and the Giants had 6 players with rushing attempts in that game.....who were they?

Close but wrong Woodson.

Stoney Woodson the CB. After 24 straight picks that either made the roster or went on IR (Henderson, DE), Stoney Woodson was cut outright. Not a bad run for Mr. Reese.

As far as Little Joe, I'm going to guess 3.

My guess would be Rob Carpenter but I'm not positive on that one. What a crappy year it was...........but Parcels was just around the corner</P>

What a horrible year. Only 9 games; we didn't play Dallas at all that year; Brunner was our QB; we were 4-5. A year to forget.</P>


I'd agree with SEC on Rob Carpenter. Butch Woolfolk was ourother prime RB that year. Morris only carried 10-20 times all season. So, it's got to be Carpenter or Woolfolk.</P>

That would be Eric Moore, also an O lineman who had a pretty decent run with the Gmen. The reason why I remember him is because I think he was one of the guys doing that dance with Pepper Johnson at the end of SB 21.

Also, he was one of those guys who supports the theory that whenever the Giants draft 2 of the same position players really close together, the 2nd one turns out better. Woolfolk and Morris are another example. They were in the same draft and were drafted very close together and the 2nd guy turned out to be better than the first. Throughout the last 25 years there have been other examples. Can any of you guys think of another?

One more question. Name the teams that have won more SBs than the Giants since the 86 season?

pretty sure he just handed the ball off a few times before Hoss was warming up again.......maybe he threw an incompletion or two ....cant really remember....

Yeah, Matt. That scared me to death. I don't think Cavanaugh threw a pass all year and I'm thinking... "We lucked out that Hoss filled in good for Phil... can we be lucky again?" But, where Hoss was an untested QB, Cavanaugh had been around the NFL for awhile.</P>

I know they had Sherrad then and he was making catches but they also had another fast guy and the play you're talking about was thrown kind of over his head and slightly behind him down the middle of the field deep.

I want to say something like Byron Williams. Something with a B. This is going to bother me the whole day because I refuse to look these things up.



Sharrad didnt get to the Giants till 94 when Reeves brought him over from Denver.


was it Byron jints?


who was the RB that season that wore # 31?

he was mostly a kick returner
Yea YA Byron Williams had 5 catches for 167 yds and Bobby Johnson had 8 catches for 137 yds

Frank Cephus wore #31 in 1984

I just read an article on this and it had me laughing remembering that day......

2001 I believe......

Giants Cardinals........

the Cards kicker celebrates like he just won the SB after kicking a first quarter FG to put the Cards up 3 - 0......

while celebrating he injures himself......the whole stadium roars in laughter...
