<FONT size=4>What was Joe Morris's early year problems that the Giants finally figured out ?</FONT></P>


If I'm wrong this will sound crazy, but I think I remember something about his vision being poor.</P>

How quickly we forget!! Checking out some stuff I realized that Mr. Michael Strahan ties Hein and Simms with 15 years.</p>


Joe Morris was a rookie in '82, and was not the starting RB until '85.</p>


Butch Woolfolk led the team in rushing in '82 and '83. Who led the team rushing in '84?</p>
it was the fullback right?
his name escapes me.
I'd have to look that up.
and thats cheating[:P]

what rookie 2nd round pick in 1999 led the team in rushing with 348 yds?

</P>


My first answer was Tiki, but he was 2nd rounder in '97, so I don't remember that one, although 348 for our leader is pathetic.</P>


Rob Carpenter was our leading rusher in '84. I liked him alot, but I always felt that his freak fumble against the Bears in the '86 NFC Championship was the turning point. Turned a big gain and first down at about midfield into Bear's ball. Landeta's whiff didn't help either.</P>

it was Joe Montgomery
with his whopping 348 yds in 1999.
to his credit there was a committee of backs who touched the ball that season.
Tiki Barber
Sean Bennett
Gary Brown
LeShon Johnson
even Charles Way

those were 2 very costly turnovers in the game.
we did get a good whipping that day though.
a couple of scores wouldn't have hurt though.

who was the Giants leading receiver in that Bears playoff game?

<FONT size=4>A little fun trivia note....</FONT></P>


<FONT size=4>When Vince Lombardi became coach in Green-Bay. He informed the players that their would be one thing during contract negotiations, that He would not tolerate. Well it seems the Packers had an All-Pro Center ( Wingo I think ). He dared. When a sports agent came in to represent the player, He was told to wait. Twenty minutes later He was sent in to the GM/Coach. The Coach said " You're in the wrong city, I just traded Him to The Eagles ".</FONT></P>

Fox and Hammer started in '93 in a 3-4. We switched back to the 4-3 in '94. Strahan started at RE in '94 and '95 because the Hammer played LE</P>

Had to be Handley... he inherited a good team.</P>


Perkins inherited the bad '78 team and had 3 losing seasons out of 4. I don't know the %, but it would have to favor Handley... and, one of Perkins years was the strike shortened year ('82?)</P>


NO more Handley questions, Please... bad memories after a glorious SB win. Do we blame Parcells for abandoning us, or Handley for coaching a good team into chaos.</P>

the only reason I know this is because i have studied every second of this game as i have most Giant playoff games and every championship game and Superbowl.

he threw 4 TDs Mowatt, McConkey, Johnson, and Bavaro.

legend has it , it was $500
but I have heard some pretty close sources say that was a bit of an exaggeration.
in Frank Giffords book "the glory game" he to says he believes it was more like $5000

I was a kid living in Albany NY at the time of the 62-10 game, and all the Giants games were always televised on Sundays since the begining. For some reason this game was not televised.

I have a pretty interesting story.

I have worked in the music industry for the past 35 years and I have encountered many interesting people over the years. Musicians, producers, artists, all types.

The most interesting in all my years happened to me 2 nights ago in a meeting in NYC.
I met a man who is a record label representative from Nashville.
We had a long drawn out meeting where we talked about many things.
We got on the subject of football and the NY Giants and he said heres something you might be interested in...

he proceeded to tell me that in the 1970s he was a police officer in Memphis and he was on duty the night they got a call to a local hotel where there had been a shooting.
a man in a hotel room had been shot and killed in what looked like an accident while cleaning his gun.
he and a few other officers thought to them selves this was no accident.
he said that anyone who is a gun owner knows enough to unload a gun before cleaning it.
and this deceased man was a known gun owner and hunter and would have never been cleaning a loaded gun , in a hotel room no less.
he pushed to have the case investigated further, but in the 70s with no access to forensics like there is today and his higher ups telling him "we got bigger fish to fry" the case quickly got swept under the rug as an accidental shooting.

this man believes to this day that it was a murder.

the deceased was no other than #24 "the Chief" Phil King

I have a pretty interesting story.

I have worked in the music industry for the past 35 years and I have encountered many interesting people over the years. Musicians, producers, artists, all types.

The most interesting in all my years happened to me 2 nights ago in a meeting in NYC.
I met a man who is a record label representative from Nashville.
We had a long drawn out meeting where we talked about many things.
We got on the subject of football and the NY Giants and he said heres something you might be interested in...

he proceeded to tell me that in the 1970s he was a police officer in Memphis and he was on duty the night they got a call to a local hotel where there had been a shooting.
a man in a hotel room had been shot and killed in what looked like an accident while cleaning his gun.
he and a few other officers thought to them selves this was no accident.
he said that anyone who is a gun owner knows enough to unload a gun before cleaning it.
and this deceased man was a known gun owner and hunter and would have never been cleaning a loaded gun , in a hotel room no less.
he pushed to have the case investigated further, but in the 70s with no access to forensics like there is today and his higher ups telling him "we got bigger fish to fry" the case quickly got swept under the rug as an accidental shooting.

this man believes to this day that it was a murder.

the deceased was no other than #24 "the Chief" Phil King


</p>


Jeez , I did'nt even realize thats how he died............Shame , maybe they will reopen the case. Many have been solved in recent years with new technology</p>


Back before players were active or inactive they was a name for a group ofplayers who could be called up immediatly in case of injury or such . What was this group called and were did it nameoriginate?</p>


</p>


Wow... good story about Phil King. I looked him up just last week and didn't see anything about this incident. He was a well liked player in his time</p>


</p>


I'll guess Taxi Squad</p>


I'll guess it originated because a taxi was the only way to get them from the train station to Yankee Stadium... either that, or because they got temporary jobs as Taxi drivers...lol</p>

Yes, but even then he did a good job. Yeah, I liked Brookshier as well.</P>


I would expect them to retire Strahan some day. Tiki? Hmmm, perhaps not after popping off about TC. I do think they should have retired Harry's # 53. If he's good enough for the HoF, shouldn't he be good enough for us to retire? I had a Giant's hat that he autographed, back around '80... wore it so much that the sig just gradually faded away. Also had a baseball signed by the '53 Dodgers that my grandfather got for me. When I was about 11 we needed a ball for a sandlot game, so I used it...lol</P>


I hope they have a nice display in the new stadium for all these guys, in addition to our Lombardi's, and previous championships.</P>

</P>


I can't remember who we gave up. I do know that the Gman Offensive line hated blocking for him. They said they'd be trying to block their man to a certain direction and then find out that Fran had scrambled right to where they were directing their man. Giants always got the rap of blocking poorly for him but I remember that Fran rarely tried to pass from the pocket. He'd drop back and one nano second later he'd be scrambling. I must say, some of his scrambles were really wild adventures... hi-lite reeel stuff.</P>

although sometimes it didnt feel like it, he was so much fun to watch now that I think back.
I dont remember standing and sitting and standing and sitting and screaming NO NO NO, YES YES YES NO YES!!!!!! more with any other player....hahahahaha

he could pull us out of what seemed like disaster by almost losing 40 yards then finding Enie Koy or someone just standing alone in the endzone alone.

he was the first player that started to ease the pain of loosing Tittle for me.

...anyway I asked the question cus I for the life of me can't remember what we gave up for Frances.
so if anyone remembers.....do the old man a favor and post it..

ok 2 part question

How many TDs did Tarkenton throw in 1967?
...and who was the only player that season to throw more?

YA - here's the answer to the tarkenton trade:</P>


Tarkenton was a No. 3 draft pick of the 1961 Vikings. He became the starting quarterback early in his rookie season and continued his outstanding performances for the next six seasons. But in 1967, he was sent to the New York Giants in a trade that netted the Vikings two No. 1 and two No. 2 draft picks over a three-year period.</P>


WOW! that's a lot of high picks... even more than we gave up for Eli.</P>


So, the Vikes cleaned our clock on that trade, not that Fran wasn't danged good, but that's 4 primo picks that could have been used for other needed positions, and we had been suffering from bad teams, and continued to suffer for years. I think I would have kept those picks and continued to go with Earl Morrall, and draft a good College QB that you could develop. We gave up pick #2, which Minny used on Clint Jones, RB from Michigan State. Pick #3 and #4 were Spurrier and Griese.</P>

Good guesses, SEC, but neither is correct.I would have guessed Mercein, too, if I didn't already know the answers from looking it up. The one that I did know, whoI was thinking of first, played 3 positions that year, if you include his passes as having played the QB spot.... He was always a very versatile player.</P>


HInts... one was the back-up QB, and the other 2 that threw passes, and had a higher % than Fran, were RB's</P>

...and who wore the soon to be infamous #56 in that season?
</P>


Mendenhall - 64, and Gregory - 81 are easy, but I can't place a #56.</P>


I loved Mendenhall's motor... never stopped trying</P>

I'm stumped. I remember Fred Dryer had 89, but that was around '69-'70... unusual for a DE.</p>


I'd suspect that it was a WR?. Aaron Twas 88; Homer was 45; Shofner was 85. We had a WR named Bobby Crespino, but I haven't got a clue what his number was.</p>

</P>


We had Terry Jackson and Mark Haynes at CB and Beasley Reese at S... all likely to be INT leaders (I can't remember the other safety now), but less likely to be Fumble recovery leaders. We had Carson, Kelly, Van Pelt and LT at LB... likely to be fumble recovery leaders, but not INT leaders. But, Van Pelt was always a good interceptor, and at Safety Reese could have been in a good position for some fumbles. So, my best guess is Van Pelt or Reese.... </P>


I'm gonna say Van Pelt... taking advantage of some fumbles created by LT, and cashing in on some INT's covering TE's or RB's out of the backfield.</P>

Eli has thrown the most picks against the Eagles (13)

Dal. (11)
Wash. (6) not bad.
Minn. (8) in 2 games [:$]

Who has Eli thrown the most TDs against?

</p>


I'm going to be smarter on this one, and stay within our own division... say Eli has thrown the most against hated Dallas</p>
yup Dallas 18 TD 11 int

I should have been more specific. What player actually scored [crossing the goal line]the most TDs in one game. Tiki or someone may may have tied it but I was thinking about someone in the early eighties
Tiki, Joe Morrison, Del Shofner, Joe Morris, Ron Johnson.....
I know they all have games with 3
is it one of them?

I would go with Joe Morris he had 21 in a single season so he musta had a bunch in a single game.</P>

Manuel became a Giant in 1984. He was the guy that Parcells told to "pack your S and get the hell out of here". Even though he had a good report with Phil. Gotta hand it to BP, he always stuck to his way every where he went. It usually works out well for him.</P>

</p>


In the 80's? If it wasn't Joe Morris the only other one I can think of would be O.J. Anderson.</p>


If it isn't Anderson it would have to be Rob Carpenter. I don't think our receivers would have 4 in one game... in the 80's that would have to be Bavaro, Bobby Johnson, or Steven Baker</p>



I think Earnest Gray had four tds in one game.
I could be wrong though
</p>


I know that Gray was the last Giant to lead the NFC in receiptions. I think he had 78</p>


</p>


Ernest Gray in 1980[?] was the manwith 4 tds...........if I'm not mistaken he had3 in another game that same year</p>


Name the DB with the most consecutive games with at least one interception?</p>

For this off the top of my head Emlin Tunnel he had scads of em.</p>
