Giants RDE from early 80s wore #79 who was he?
</P>


I'll guess Dee Hardison though not sure Jints10</P>


Z</P>



Yep, Dee Hardison.......I have no idea why I was thinking about him today.
</P>


I liked Dee Hardison................he played 4 or 5 years. Can't recall the circumstances of whywe let him go</P>


Name another QB besides Eli who wore no.10 and won a Super Bowl</P>


Z</P>


the only one I can think of is Jay Shroeder..... who were the only QBs to wear #5 in a SB game?</P>


This was kind of a trick question , I believe the only QB to wear no.10and WIN the SB was Eli. Tarkenton wore no.10 but never won the SB</P>


Here's one. Name the Giant players to who played in both SB 21 and SB 25. I'm not sure of this myself but someone asked me. Bet if we put our heads together we can get this one</P>

R.I.P. Giant's Stadium. I was there from the beginning, in '76, and had many great memories. A few bad ones, too. But the Conference Championship against Washington, with the cold and wind and confetti flying around at the end, is the best.</P>

LOL... yeah, the Zman is amazing... only, to tell the truth, I heard it on the NFL channel about a week ago... Honestly, I did know the answer anyways, but it would have taken a few minutes to remember, instead of the instantaneous recall when I first read it.</P>


But, the Weeb and Vermeil answer was from the old memory banks</P>

Ok - elaborate - by crossing the goal line, do you mean scoring a TD? Because there is only a limited Number of players who played in 21 and 25

crossing the goal line with the ball...scoring a TD hmmm - Maurice Carthon?

nope...getting closer

They started today. Hope to get over to Jersey in the next week or 2</P>


Began with the Spirals.........is that a message to all of us who have misbehaved out there on them over the years?[;)]</P>


</P>


R.I.P. Giant's Stadium.* I was there from the beginning, in '76, and had many great memories. A few bad ones, too. But the Conference Championship against Washington, with the cold and wind and confetti flying around at the end, is the best.</P>


It's like losing your favorite uncle. Died before his time, and can't be replaced in your heart.</P>


Got to enjoy the Dead there, too. That's always an experience, with as many people outside the stadium as inside.* Just one long enjoyable*party.</P>


</P>


Me too Z , I was there from the beginning also. It is losing something we just won't get back...but we do have*the memories. Agreed on the Washington game. Very emotional. *Is'nt it*amazing how far the team progressed from 76 on in the old place......................</P>

hear hear gentlemen.....I wish I knew you guys back then.....we need to get together this season for beers

heres an easy one....

what Giant crossed the goal line in 2 out of 3 of our SB wins?

Giants RDE from early 80s wore #79 who was he?
</P>


I'll guess Dee Hardison though not sure Jints10</P>


Z</P>



Yep, Dee Hardison.......I have no idea why I was thinking about him today.
</P>


I liked Dee Hardison................he played 4 or 5 years. Can't recall the circumstances of whywe let him go</P>


Name another QB besides Eli who wore no.10 and won a Super Bowl</P>


Z</P>


the only one I can think of is Jay Shroeder..... who were the only QBs to wear #5 in a SB game?</P>


This was kind of a trick question , I believe the only QB to wear no.10and WIN the SB was Eli. Tarkenton wore no.10 but never won the SB</P>


Here's one. Name the Giant players to who played in both SB 21 and SB 25. I'm not sure of this myself but someone asked me. Bet if we put our heads together we can get this one</P>


Z</P>


LT,Banks, Bart Oates, Mark Bavaro, Maurice Carthon</P>


A couple more....Gary Reasons and William Roberts?</P>

So far, only 1-2" here...on top of a mountain in the Poconos. We're usually blasted but have been a little too far north for these last 2 biggies... thank you, Lord. My first winter here we got 96". They had to bring in a backhoe to take snow away because there was no place to plow the new snow.</P>

Tough one, even though he was only with us during brutally bad years. Jennings taking acrobatic and theatrical swan dives when an opposing blocker's breezeswooshed by him was always funny, and worth a few 15 yearders.</P>

Yup, it was Hornung. But, I don't know nor remember why. Just noticed his name next to the Did Not Play. Can't remember if he was injured, but he was 31 and probably in his last years. I also remember Taylor being more effective than PH. To me, Hornung just wasn't that fast, and wasn't the bull that Taylor was. His rep was bigger than his play, but he was the pretty boy from ND and always had the attention. That year off didn't help him, either.</P>

It was a KC kicker, initials MM. GB got all TD's.</P>


</P>


It wasn't Nitsche who didn't play for GB.</P>


did Paul Hornung not play? this is a total guess based on you saying its a name we would all know..... I dont remember him not playing but Ill say Paul..... if he didnt play Taylor was no slouch ...I actually thought he was better than Hornung.....</P>


Yup, it was Hornung. But, I don't know nor remember why. Just noticed his name next to the Did Not Play. Can't remember if he was injured, but he was 31 and probably in his last years. I also remember Taylor being more effective than PH. To me, Hornung just wasn't that fast, and wasn't the bull that Taylor was. His rep was bigger than his play, but he was the pretty boy from ND and always had the attention. That year off didn't help him, either.</P>


wow,really?i thought it was chuck mercein,who helped them win the ice bowl on that last drive.recall a story he told saying he brought his whole family in for the super bowl because of his performance 2 weeks before,then was told 5 minutes before the kickoff by lombardi he wasn't going to play.</P>


You could be right, rbc. I was checking out the box score and noticed that only GB had a DNP, and it was Hornung.</P>

the kicker for kc was mike mercer,the wally pipp who kicked before jan stenerud took over.imho,the best punter in giants history was landeta,was sorry to see him go,but happy for him to strech his career that long.</P>


Mercer it is, rbc. good job. Most people figure it was Stenerud... he was one excellent kicker.</P>


My problem with Sean L is that whiffed punt in the Chicago championship.</P>I HAD TO SEE THAT REPLAY 7 TIMES ON THE DAY IT HAPPENED,AND I STILL COULDN'T BELIEVED HE WIFFED!

One of their DB's, Shawn Gayle. </P>


That play, and Rob Carpenter's inexplicanle fumble (Like Jerry Rice's fumble against us in '86), were really the difference. I can only chalk it up to the cold, and maybe a freak gust of wind at Landeta's legs. Still, you had to realize that we were a team on the rise.</P>

but dad never said a word.....they did tell me about lots of fights among fans and a very rowdy situation....

thats one of the only games Ive missed since I was 9 years old......I used to wonder if there were other people out there as obsessed about this team as me....and since I found these boards .....I found im not alone.....

...and yup....Wellington canned Sherman right after that game.....took him long enough...hahahaha

This is from Wiki... everything says Steelers!</P>


Wikipedia ---- The only thing missing from Tittle's impressive résumé was an NFL championship. The Giants lost the title game every year from 1961 to 1963. The 1963 game was especially disappointing, as Tittle hurt his leg while the Giants were losing to the <FONT color=#002bb8>Chicago Bears</FONT> (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_Bears) 14-10.</P>


A 1964 photo of a dazed Tittle on the field taken by Morris Berman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is regarded among the most iconic images in the history of sports. Tittle, who was in the final season of his career, was photographed helmet-less, bloodied and kneeling immediately after having been knocked to the ground by a Steelers defender and throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown. The quarterback had suffered both a concussion and cracked sternum on the play. He would go on to play out the rest of the season, but the Giants would finish a disappointing 2-10-2.</P>


Post-Gazette editors at first declined to run the photo, citing a lack of action, but Berman entered the image into contests where it took on a life of its own, winning a National Headliner Award. The photo was ineligible for a Pulitzer Prize because it was not published, but it is regarded as having changed the way that photographers look at sports, having shown the power of capturing a moment of reaction. It now hangs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.</P>


After at first having failed to seen the appeal of the image, Tittle eventually would grow to embrace it, putting it on the back cover of his 2009 autobiography. "That was the end of the road," he told the Los Angeles Times in 2008. "It was the end of my dream. It was over."</P>


In a career lasting 17 years, Tittle passed for 33,070 yards, and 242 touchdowns, and twice received the <FONT color=#002bb8>NFL Most Valuable Player Award</FONT> (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_Most_Valuable_Player_Award). In 1971, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.</P>

This must have been in the back of his mind that day. Winds were just as bad and he had a good day.............plus my guess is he did not want to have to "explain" anything to Parcels this time around[;)]</P>

It must have been in the back of Parcells mind. The previous season when the Giants played the Bears in the Divisional round. Landeta whiffed at the punt. After that the game went all Chicago’s way

So maybe I should know this, and I believe I do but......

Before 86 had the Giants every played in an NFC Championship game?
nope that was the first one..... first championship game in the Superbowl era....
And what a game it was....

I was barely 5 lol


</p>


5?.......good...... then you were plenty old enough [;)]to know this one. How many passes did Simms complete in that 1986 NFC Championship17-0 win over the Redskins and how many went for TDs? Anybody?</p>


Z</p>


</p>

I know he threw a TD to Lionel Manuel coming across the middle of the end zone, I'm trying to remember the other TD. Had to be either Morris on a sweep or Bavaro on a seam pattern. Just guesses. As far as completed passes, it was not a cold day but it was really windy, I'll guess 14 completed passes.</p>

Yeah, the best game ever at Giant Stadium.</P>


I guess YA is wrong, cuz SEC didn't confirm it. I also remembered about 15 passes... if YA is right and he completed half of them, then Phil completed 7.5 passes... lol</P>


So, it must be 7 for 14, or 8 for 16. </P>


We ran over 40 times, and we didn't exactly tear it up, but we made the decision to go on defense at the beginning, with Washington immediately against the wind... a great move... and we got the early scores and controlled the clock, so poor Schroeder had to pass 40-50 times in that wind to try and catch up.</P>

You guys are all very close.....Simms was 7of 14 for under a hundred yards but one of those was that TD pass to Manuel.

OK. I know Norm Snead wore Giff's #16... but I don't know if it was retired before Norm Played.</P>


If that's one, I'm grilling my brain for #2. Seems to me it would have to be someone we traded for, and allowed them to keep their old number. Craig Morton was #14 with Dallas, but took #15 with the Giants... I'll bet that would have ticked you off, YA, if they had let him keep 14. Anyways, I'm thinking on who the other one is.</P>


I'm thinking it could be a #32, which Al Blozis retired. But, OJ Anderson was #32 with the Cards, and switched to #24 when he came here, so it has to be someone else.</P>

who was the last Giant to wear #11 before Simms? I'll go two in a row with the* Randy Johnson in early 70s. Barely remember him. you get the * key.... heres one..... name 2 jersey numbers that were retired for a player.....and later brought out of retirement for players to wear.........while staying retired..... if that makes any sense also name the players who wore them</P>


This is an excellent question. Making me think, hard</P>


OK. I know Norm Snead wore Giff's #16... but I don't know if it was retired before Norm Played.</P>


If that's one, I'm grilling my brain for #2. Seems to me it would have to be someone we traded for, and allowed them to keep their old number. Craig Morton was #14 with Dallas, but took #15 with the Giants... I'll bet that would have ticked you off, YA, if they had let him keep 14. Anyways, I'm thinking on who the other one is.</P>


I'm thinking it could be a #32, which Al Blozis retired. But, OJ Anderson was #32 with the Cards, and switched to #24 when he came here, so it has to be someone else.</P>


</P>


I would have hated for another Giant to wear 14....... Im pretty sure 16 was retired when Frank was inducted into the HOF in 77......so it was still eligible when Norm wore it..... these guys im thinking of are way before all of our times.....kind of a not fair question......but ill wait to see if anyone knows it.....or can look it up</P>

After Ray Flaherty's #1 was retired (he left the Giants in 1935) Frank Cope wore #1 in 1946; Supposedly Tuffy Leemans' #4 was retired in 1940, but he wore it through 1943 and Leland Shaffer was #4 in 1945

You guys are all very close.....Simms was 7of 14 for under a hundred yards but one of those was that TD pass to Manuel. In that same game 4 different Giants sacked Jay Schroeder. Who were they? Z</P>


I'll say Marshall, Martin, LT and Reasons.</P>


ill agree...but swap LT for Banks.... I remember my son saying ...the only thing that could make that game more perfect would be if Taylor got a sack</P>


You guys are good.It was Marshall , Martin and Reasons. Eric Dorsey also had one. LT had a bad leg in that game if you remember</P>


Can you guys name the left footed punter we had around 1970. He may have played only one year and is the only lefty I can remember. He had the same name as a formerUSAwinter olympic hero</P>

Norwood had never made a field goal of that distance on grass before he attempted wide right. Just a little known fact I thought you guys might find interesting. He was 1 for 5 over that season, I believe , with kicks on grass over 40 yards.. If he had made it , it would have been the longest one [on grass] in his career up till that point

wasn't it 43 yds, SEC? Regardless, it is hard to believe he never kicked a FG on grass longer than his SB attempt... so I gotta say No. But, the question begs to be answered Yes.</p>


Did he have any more career after that missed FG? Somebody should know.</p>


</p>


Pretty sure it was 47 yards Z.......do you want to know the answer or should I wait awhile?</p>


</p>


Boy, my memory is kaputski. And, I was right there standing at field level at the goal line on the side he missed on. I couldn't tell as it went by and saw the giants leaping in the air... and I knew.</p>


Well, 47 isn't a gimme... that poor guy. </p>


Does anyone remember if he played again after that season? Who replaced him?</p>played one more season in buffalo going 18 of 29 on fg's and 56 of 58 on pat's,and was history.sad........well,for him:)

In Super Bowl 25 when Norwood lined up for that last 47 yard*FG attempt [wide right].........had it he made that kick***** it would have been the longest FG he ever made on a grass surface up till that point in his career.................True or false?</P>


Z</P>


</P>


wasn't it 43 yds, SEC?* Regardless, it is hard to believe he never kicked a FG on grass longer than his SB attempt... so I gotta say No.* But, the question begs to be answered Yes.</P>

Pretty sure it was 47 yards Z.......do you want to know the answer or should I wait awhile?</P>


what the hell....Ill say yes..... I thought it was 48........we are all over the place.....hahahahaha....</P>


47** no doubt here</P>
Norwood had never made a field goal of that distance on grass before he attempted wide right. Just a little known fact I thought you guys might find interesting. He was 1 for 5 over that season, I believe , with kicks on grass over 40 yards.. If he had made it , it would have been the longest one [on grass] in his career up till that point
Z

very interesting fact...did not know that...

I have randomly thought of him over the years and hoped his mental health had not caused him to crumble...

that is a horrible thing to be famous for

Clack snapped on the fumble and many don't realize that he snapped itearly because he thought time was running out, which threw Piscarcik off.</P>
