We had another Olympian, SEC. I'm pretty sure we also had it asked before... but we'll do it again.</P>


This NY Giant player, from '77 - '79, also played handball with his brotherin the Olympics in 1980.</P>

Herscel is correct Z...........I remember that question but I can't recall the answer. Was he a QB? [Handball]</P>

Well, that's still decent memory... yes, a QB. Initials RD.</P>

yup, Randy Dean.</P>


Can't think of another besides Hayes, SEC. Renaldo Nehemiah didn't get to the Olympics because of the '80 boycott.</P>


Jim Thorpe was another Olympian/NFLer, but he was a halfback. He was 37 when he played for the '25 Giants, and 40 when he played for the Chic. Cardinals</P>

This isa tough one. Who was the defensive line coach who created the "Fearsome Foursome" with LA Rams....he later came on board with Giants and was let go by Allie Sherman after 1 year I think. This guy then went to the Vikings and formed the "Purple People Eaters" under Bud Grant.Later he became a HC elsewhere</P>

I know I'm gonna kick myself when I see this answer. One of the guys will get it, I'll bet.</P>


Fearsome Foursome and later the purple People eaters? What does that tell you? </P>


No wonder this coach only lasted a year with Allie... Allie traded away our great vets and proceeded to turn the D into crap. If this guy knew his stuff (and he surely did with those 2 great D's), and it looked like the D would get better, Allie was sure to have no need for him.</P>

Z</P>

I am almost positive the answer to this is Jack Patera....

I remember he came to the Giants in 68 and Allie quickly gave him the boot...he went directly to the Vikings and did very well

and im pretty sure before coming to the Giants he was with the Rams.....so I say Patera......

that Patera question was fantastic....took a ton of brainstorming...

as for the percent of draft picks signed in the AFL 1960 draft.....I have no idea.....

maybe 20%........im curious ZIm......lets have the answer...hahaha


since Ive been hearing a lot about Brian Westbrook everywhere.....heres one....

in the game where Westbrook scored on the Giants for the first time on his career........he scored twice.......one was a 6 yd rush .......what was the other?

what year was it?

and what Giant picked off McNabb that day?

The AFL signed 50% of their first round picks, and 75% of their overall picks.</P>


it was the quantity, quality, and name value of those first drafted players that helped them get a solidfoundation.</P>

Dave Radar was the QB we picked up the year we drafted Simms. Recall Rader?</P>


Z</P>


</P>


Wow, the name rader is no where in my memory.</P>


Good question. We had a DR QB and a RD QB</P>


</P>


So, in the late 60's we had a QB with the initials FT, and a running backwith TF. Who are they?</P>


I think that's probably too easy.</P>

Randy Dean may have been there with him that year but it was not him YA. His initials were DR</P>

You're slipping, YA.* I posted that answer 19 hours ago... here it is:</P>


*</P>


<FONT color=#000080>OK... 1960 AFL* very first Draft.</FONT></P>


<FONT color=#000080>The AFL and NFL drafts were fairly similar, as you'd expect.* </FONT></P>


<FONT color=#000080>The AFL signed 50% of their first round picks, and 75% of their overall picks.</FONT></P>


<FONT color=#000080>It*was the quantity, quality, and name value of those first drafted players that helped them get a solid*foundation.*</FONT></P>


I haven't got a clue on the Westbrook score, although I'm gonna stab at an 84 yard punt return... year???</P>

I am slippin....I totally missed it ZIm....

and yup that was the Westbrook score.....2003

Yeah, pressing pants...lol</P>


TY for the hint. I'm still unsure, but my best guess is **** Lynch. </P>


I knew it wasn't one of the big guys. That's why I said I was surprised back then ('60?, early 60's?)when it happened. I knew a lot of the guys smoked, but thought it was mostly the linemen, and not the skill positions where they'd be running alot and sucking wind if they smoked. </P>


I remember **** Nolan smoking on the sidelines when he coached SF. Heck, it coulda been Nolan, now that I think of that. Many coaches did smoke on the sidelines, for quite a long time.... maybe in to the 80's? Pretty sure Bum Phillips always had a butt.</P>

All this INT questioning comes to you compliments of YA's Camel smoke ring question. I just went back through the years to see the **** Nolan, **** Lynch, Jimmy Patton years. 50's and 60's we had some dang fine DB's. We had INT machinesin Tunnell through Patton, Williams, Spider.

That was Bill Wade.* He couldn't hold YA's jock, and we outplayed the Bears, but lost.* I think that, for our own YATittle 1962, this was the single most painful Giant loss he has ever experienced.* We were the best team that year.</P>


Zim ...it was like watching your dad get beat up or something...... watching your hero melt.... watching Superman experience kryptonite ..... <FONT size=4>that loss scarred my youthful brain with affects that linger to this day</FONT>.... we were the better team that day</P>


lol. perhaps we can arrange a sit-down with the team Psych.* </P>


I feel safe*guessing that, had we won that game, you would now be known as "YA Tittle 1963" ??</P>


See... right there,*your current*ID, is the subliminal denial of that '63 season and proof that you were scarred.for life.</P>

hahahahahaha....great point ZIm

I was 11 when that season ended and my dad told me years later in 81 when we made the playoffs that at the end of that 63 game I was crying and I told him we would never ever win a Championship again........he said...I think your theory goes out the window this season......he was wrong.... ;)

I dont remember crying or telling him that....but I really did take those games to heart.....

I was one of those kids that waited all week for sunday afternoon......I lived for those Giants

its funny.....I still get that same feeling sometimes......very nostalgic

one thing I absolutely remember is the last game of the season at Yankee Stadium.....vs the Steelers I think......I remember clear as day the whole stadium counting down the last seconds as they ticked off the clock....

what a day....

in the 63 opener vs the Colts ...what Giant caught his first TD pass since 1959?

I think this is a trick question... because I can't think of a single Giant that was there between '59 - '62 that would have had a 3 year drought in receiving a TD pass. So, I'm going to say Hugh McElhenny cuz I don't know if he caught a TD passes inthose yearswith the Niners and Vikings before he was with us in '63.</P>

Giff caught the pass...but the guy who put the hit on YA was a LB who played some offense for the Rams before going to the Bears...

Atkins was a great guess though

That has to be Phil King. hard to believe, although I think he was hurt for most of one season. I figured it couldn't be a WR... that's why I chose Hugh Mc. That left me with Phil and Alex. Phil did go to the Steelers, and then the Vikes.</P>

I didn't remember Larry Morris. In fact, Richie Pettibone is the only other one I can remember now, along with the guys I already mentioned. Didn't mention Petti cuz he was a safety.</P>


71 is Bib Lurtsema and 75 is the kat, Katcavage.</P>

#56... right rbc. </P>


What number did he wear with NO?</P>


SEC... looked up Hughes. was with us '70-'76 and NO from '77-'79. </P>


NO came into the league in '67, so it couldn't have been an expansion draft. Must have been a straight trade.</P>

That had to be Mr. versatility... Joe Morrison</P>


can always count on Zim to pull these out.... Ol' Joe was amazing.... he truly was the glue... you could line him up anywhere and he would produce... a true true football PLAYER..... not a specialist ...just played the game....</P>


Amen</P>


Remember Tom Matte, playing QB for the Colts? I always thought Joe coulda done a respectable job at QB. </P>

</P>


His last job was with South Carolina. That's where he wascoaching whenhe died (at 51! Way too young). I think he was with New Mewxico before that. Before that??? That's the answer we want.</P>


Joe only led the team in rushing 1 year, and was the leading receiver 2X (but, like with 40 receptions). I don't think he ever got more than 500 yds rushing in a season. You wonder how he was so revered by us fans. </P>


He just did it all. Not glamorous. No 100 yard games. Just respectable numbers rushing and receiving every game, every year. Our Eveready Bunny. Played on D, too, as YA noted. </P>

That was Bill Wade. He couldn't hold YA's jock, and we outplayed the Bears, but lost. I think that, for our own YATittle 1962, this was the single most painful Giant loss he has ever experienced. We were the best team that year.</P>

heres one....

when the Giants played the 49ers in 1979.........which was a great game by the way......Earnest Gray caught some ridiculous balls....hell of a rookie....

any way...in that game....

there was a future SB winning coach and a future movie star (who was later know for other things) playing on that 49er team....

who were they?

Seriously? I can only remember Bobby Douglas in the late 60's. He definitely couldn't have led the league in passing... maybe running yards for a QB.</P>


It musta been a QB between Wade and Douglas... but I can't remember who... and if he was good, why did the Bears end up with Douglas?</P>

Katcavage picked up a fumble in that game [@ Yankee Stadium 1963 vs theRedskins]and rambled 4 yards for a TD. 99% percent sure on that one maybe the records got it wrong , I'm just guessing but a four 4 yardint. seems like coincidence</P>

Her sauce (we called it gravy) would start up at around 10 am - Meatballs, sausage, Bracciole, and the scent would drive us crazy. My Grandpa, Pa my 3 older brother's and I would have some heated discussions about our teams (Gramps and dad were eagle fans, I was a Giants fan, 2 of my brothers liked the Cowboys, and my space cadet brother liked the Rams, and the Dodgers for that matter, never understood that - he was wayy to young to remember them in brooklyn) Sorry - I had to share this trip down memory lane because remembering Mark Haynes brings back all thos fond memories.

<FONT color=#000080>Great post! Haynes and Hayes were clearly the best CB tandem for a while.</FONT></P>


<FONT color=#000080>I would kill for some Bracciole!!!!!!!*** Haven't had it in many years. The grand parents have all been deceased for a long time.</FONT></P>


<FONT color=#000080>My parents always wanted to have Sunday dinner about 2pm but*I would watch the Giant game or listen to it on radio if it was a home game.</FONT></P>


<FONT color=#000080>And of course I knew there would be bigtime leftovers.</FONT></P>

Sunday dinner was always between 2pm and 3pm, unless it was football season, and all the males in our house were NFC fans (and I think my Dad liked summerall and madden better than the NBC jet announcers) we scheduled dinner around the Giants games. That's not to say we didn't watch the other game, just there was absolutely NO football related things during dinner( too many times the bowl of rigatoni or Fussilli went flying)

Dear God I love this thread!!!! I remember Mark Haynes and Lester Hayes both were pretty damn good CB's. Remember SUmmerall and Madden saying they were prolly the best CB tandem in football.

Hey, Hos... good to see ya'</P>


Mark Haynes was excellent, and tough as nails.* You never saw an arm tackle from him.... one of our all time best DB's.* Hayes and Haynes were a great tandem.</P>


Wow, you're the only Giant fan in the family?* Well, you had the smiles in the '07 season. Didn't your Dad try to make you an eagles fan when you were a kid?</P>


Now you made me hungry. Your Mom's pasta sauce sounds dee-licious.</P>

Actually it was my Dad who made me a Giants fan. A certain handoff gone wrong in 1978 sealed the deal for me. I was looking for my own , I guess you can say, football identity, and I really really had a hero worship of Larry Czonka, all growing up I had heard about how great he was etc etc. anyway - the Cowboy's were out, the Eagles were out, and the only team we can watch every week was the Giants and Jets. Than there was Brad Van Pelt, who quickly became my favorite player. I just loved his luchbox mentality and style of physical aggressive football.

hell yeah Hos...

it was "gravy " in my house to.....1 pm every sunday......pasta every wednesday to some reason.....I never knew why....

unfortunately Dad and I had miss a lot of those sunday dinners to go to the games.....

86 season NFC Championship game.....sometime in....I believe it was the second quarter.....Schroeder takes the snap and a Giant chases him 25 yards back before just missing the sack as Schroeder just got the ball off but incomplete....

what Giant chased him 25 yards in reverse?

Oddly enough, Hos, the 6 - 10 1978 team was one of my favorites. The defense had Van, Kelley, Carson, Mendenhall, Archer, Terry Jackson. I always thought what killed them was McVay, and needing a better QB (thus, why they chose Simms with their #1 in '79). I wish everyone could see film of Troy Archer and Mendenhall... they gave 100% passion on every snap, as did our LBs.</P>


On offense there was Doug Kotar... another lunchpail guygiving 100% effort that everyone loved... team mates and fans. I always liked Czonka with Miami and was thrilled that he came to us. He also was 100% effort, butwas a step slower thanin his prime.</P>

Funny Y.A. - It was spaghetti on wednesday too.
Usually carne pizziola, Friday's was always fish.

I remember that play as well - I always thought that Carl Banks was overshadowed by Carson and Taylor early on. Another LB I thought was underrated by everyone but Giants fans was Gary Reasons.

I've always said Reasons was the No. 4 LB in that group... but, he would be No. 1 on our current group. We need a few studs there. Hoping Boley and Sintim can be 2 of them... then FA or draft to fill MLB.</P>

I think that's 1977. #21 is Bill Bryant and 29 is Jack Powers (this is what gave it away... I don't think they were with us in '78). That's also Gregory, 81, and Dan Lloyd, 54... both of them were big favorites</P>

I'll take my hit on the sidelines from Brad, as long as I can be on the sidelines during a game. And Brad is RIP, so I don't expect anything bad, unless you get a surrogate tackler.</P>


I remember the guy who fell, but I didn't see him fall. I only remember people going to him and checking him out. I thought it would stop the game and take a while, buyt they got him onto the gurney and out pretty quick. I don't think they even stopped the game, but your testing my 33 years of old memory banks...lol</P>


Anyone go to the Yale Bowl for a Giant's game. I went to everyone starting summer 1968. Anyways, remember the Men's room... you pissed against the wall? I saw a dude passed out in there, half in and half out of the trench along the wall... all wet No One wanted to move him, so he just laid there.</P>

it was accross from me.....so probably about 128 or 129</P>


So he went head first about 10 feetdown or so?</P>


Z</P>


pretty much.....I just remember people all around him and them taking him off on a gurney.... it was on the news later that night to im pretty sure he fully recovered....</P>


Remember the mud around the edge of the field @ Yankee Stadium.............when we were really young and could just walk on the field after the game and see the players coming in. I saw some guy [he must have been three sheets to the wind] just fall backwards and lay there in it[passed out?]A sight that always kinda stuck with me lol</P>


Z</P>


</P>


I'll take my hit on the sidelines from Brad, as long as I can be on the sidelines during a game. And Brad is RIP, so I don't expect anything bad, unless you get a surrogate tackler.</P>


I remember the guy who fell, but I didn't see him fall. I only remember people going to him and checking him out. I thought it would stop the game and take a while, buyt they got him onto the gurney and out pretty quick. I don't think they even stopped the game, but your testing my 33 years of old memory banks...lol</P>


Anyone go to the Yale Bowl for a Giant's game. I went to everyone starting summer 1968. Anyways, remember the Men's room... you pissed against the wall? I saw a dude passed out in there, half in and half out of the trench along the wall... all wet No One wanted to move him, so he just laid there.</P>


</P>


I believe it was called the "horses trouth"? lol.........NOT a good place to pass out in</P>

I'm glad you bumped this, sec. I remember trying to think of the answer and coukln't... then I never saw the answer.</P>


I can only think of Dan Reeves boy, Treadwell. He kicked a rash of FG's in his first game. But, I think it was only 4. So it isn't him.</P>


tried to think of another first game of the season where we coulda had 5 FG;s, and can't think of one, so I'm thinking his first game was mid season.</P>

I agree, YA. I think it was because we always had good D. Giant fans are always about D. It's the work ethic mentality, and we had a group od players that always gave 100%.</P>


Most of the offenses struggled, which was why we never prospered. The effort was always there, but the size and skill level wasn't. </P>


Plus, it was a new beginning in the stadium, after years of bouncing around. We were ready to get down to business and establish ourselves anew. Once we got in to the stadium we knew, at least, that we'd have a good D to start us off. Getting Phil in '79 was a first step. Getting LT in '81 helped make a really good D into a monster D. When Phil matured, along with the Suburbanites, we were ready for the top.</P>


It was a great time watching the team change and develop in those first 10 years. There were many of those players from the mid to late 70's that I wish had a chance at some post season glory. Guys like Mendenhall, who I don't think ever played in a playoff game. Gregory, Kelley, Van Pelt, Kotar... and many more great Giant warriors.</P>
