Good question

I know that was the year Joe Montana was taking, but he was in the 3rd round I think.

Phil Simms threw for the more touchdowns out of the three. And the other qb taken in the first round were Jack Thompson who basically mounted to nothing and the 3rd qb who was on the superbowl bears team was Steve Fuller.

Out of the three Simms was the only one in the first round who had a productive career.

Who is number 79. We drafted him</P>


Z</P>


</P>


So does anyone have a guess on who this DL [no. 79]was who we drafted in the early seventies? He was great at Nebraska but only lasted a year or so with us before moving to World Football League</P>


Z</P>


Larry Jacobson?</P>


Good try .......we drafted him also out of Nebraska at about the same time but he was not no.79 in the picture</P>


Z</P>


</P>


I had to look it up, SEC.... Rich Glover.</P>


What surprised me was that Nebraska had 97 players on the roster. Wow.</P>

That was him Z........Glover was an excellent college player</P>

That's why I deliberately put NFL draft. Didn't want to confuse things. I probably should have included both, but....

interesting since Namath was drafted #1 by Jets of AFL, but #12 by St Louis in same year. And other 2 also drafted differently.

The 1999 draft I know we drafted Luke false start Petitgout and I am sure he is out of the league after signing and getting released by the bucs. And another player who I thought was not bad was Mike Rosenthal. I am sure he retired by now. This was brought up in another thread. Dan Campbell was drafted that season and I am not sure if he is in the league anymore I will say he retired. The rest of the 99 draft by the Giants were poor.

The 2000 draft is an easy one that is the year we drafted tip toeing Ron Dayne. I know we also drafted Griffin from Alabama who I liked when he was with us before he left for Washington. I know Ron Dixon was drafted as well and he has to be out of the league now. Besides that touchdown return in the super bowl he has been nonexistent. And the 2 linebackers we drafted who I thought were not bad players were Dhani Jones & Brandon Short. Jones just had a good season for the Bengals and Short I think retired. I cannot remember who else we drafted that year.

While these 3 were drafted in 1965, Joe Willie was #12 in NFL draft (Butkus 3...Sayers 4). In AFL draft Joe Willie was #1 (Sayers 5...Butkus 9)

The answer I was looking for was 1989!

#! Troy Aikman
#3 Barry Sanders
#4 Derrick Thomas

and guess who is #5 draft pick.....

Deion Sanders

So, likely 4 of top 5 picks that year will be HOFers!

The 6th is the most difficult, and the hardest to believe.</P>


Anyone?</P>


And, who did it the most seasons?</P>


Mowatt or Cross Zimmy? Id say Tucker did it most</P>


Neither, YA.</P>


Surprise... the 6th is Tom Mullady. In '82 he led all receivers with 27!!! That's with Perkins, Grey and Mistler on the team. Pathetic seasonal numbers... and everyone was worried about our 2009 corp?</P>


Ya got the last right, YA... Bob Tucker led the team in receptions 4 times.</P>

He was Ok... average. He had a long career... SF, Pitt, Detroit, Giants, Colts, and Miami. Most people remember him from the days after he left us and would fill in nicely for Johnny U with the Colts, or then for Bob Griese with the Dolphins. They both had good all around teams and his play didn't really hurt them (except for the easy TD he missed seeing against the Jets in SBIII)</P>

Although you didn't see him, your evaluation was really good, rbc. He was smart. He did play within his abilities. He wasn't fast and rarely scrambled, but he often made yardage when a side would clear out and no one was open. His arm was avaerage, but very accurate. He was the kind of vet that you'd feel happy having,knowing he was ready if your starter got hurt.</P>

I would put him a little better than average. I remember him being reliable and steady. Didn't feel team was giving too much away when he played, esp the Colts. But of course my memory may be fuzzy by now.

BTW....he did have his career long pass as a Giant. 89 Yard Td...surely you know the speedster that caught it??

a little edit..I did not mean to imply he was in Johnny U class with Colts....just felt he was more than capable of filling in wherever he was needed

The real original spelling was with 2 - n's, like mine. Over the years many who left Europe dropped one n. Now there are more with 1 n than with 2... so, I'm in the minority.</P>

Gordon Bell was gonna be may last guess, SEC... you beat me to it. But, that looks too big for Bell, too. That pic can't be pre 70's,</P>


We've had some good RB's from Michigan, but... I feel they all became just OK Pro RB's, below what they projected as college players. It's at the point wher I'll be happy if we never draft another RB from Mich. I kinda feel the same way about Michigan WR's, and I'm hoping Mario Manningham makes me eat those feelings.</P>

In other words this thread is priceless, not only for the bits of memories and past it contains but because of all the people who have contributed to it. Thank you YA for beginning this thread.

#24 is Butch Woolfork who most of you got correct.

#42 I put the wrong picture for the player I wanted to put in. Sorry for the mistake lol

I was trying to get a college picture of Billy Taylor of texas tech not Billy Taylor of Michigan.

Good point, Hos, For anyone who saw him play, #10 will never be forgotten. In fact, when I think of that number, Van Pelt comesinto my mind before Eli.But, I be old. In fact, when I think of Eli I often think that he should have on a real QB's number... like # 11, like Simms had. But, we wouldn't want to have Simms forgetten, either. But, when I see Eli I often think that the number 10 doesn't fit him right.</P>


Most probably, anyone born after 1980-85 doesn't think of Van Pelt at all. Yeah, that is sad. He was great... probably borderline HOF... like Simms.</P>

The thing that makes me sad is - Brad Van Pelt began what was a long line of Top notch Linebackers that spanned nearly 20 years for the Giants and His Number will always be remembered for someone else wearing it, and thats a shame really - not taking anything away from the other player wearing his number, but the Man should be remembered 40-50 years from now.</p>


Good point, Hos, For anyone who saw him play, #10 will never be forgotten. In fact, when I think of that number, Van Pelt comesinto my mind before Eli.But, I be old. In fact, when I think of Eli I often think that he should have on a real QB's number... like # 11, like Simms had. But, we wouldn't want to have Simms forgetten, either. But, when I see Eli I often think that the number 10 doesn't fit him right.</p>


Most probably, anyone born after 1980-85 doesn't think of Van Pelt at all. Yeah, that is sad. He was great... probably borderline HOF... like Simms.</p>

# 10 will always be Big Bad Brad to me....

no disrespect to Elisame here,yat.my 2 favorites when i first started wtching the game(when i was 9 or 10 )were brad and harry carson.r.i.p.,brad.you are missed.[:(]

I used to know this... back in the day when it was actually happening. But, can't remember now. You'd think 1 team might be Detroit, and perhaps a Chicago team. They were closest, so they surely had scouts watching Michigan games more frequently. For some reason the Yankees twitch in my brain, but I could have that cornfused with Elway and the Yankees.</P>

In 1974 Giant Linebacker Brian Kelly had 1 interception.

Who was it against?

If I could remember that Kelly INT'd Len Dawson/KC Chiefs in '74, my memory would be off the charts... at KC, and we won 33-27. TY Brian.</P>

I was reading about this '56 game and was surprised at how dumb Chicago was. This was another sneakers game. Sneakers Game I was in 1934 championship when Giants beat the Bears, which they credited to using sneakers on the icy field after halftime.</P>


The '56 Championship was the same thing... icy. Sneakers Game II.This time the Giants used sneakers from the start. The Bears didn't. The superior traction was credited for the Giants whoopin' the Bears, 47-7</P>

Great story and you're right about the graphics, more like the 80s.

There was one NY Philly game from the 80s that I never recovered from. The Giants blocked a punt and the Eagles wound up returning it for a TD and the Giants lost. That rule makes no sense. If you partially block the punt and it crosses the line of scrimmage, the punting team can't advance it. If you totally block the punt, the punting team can advance it. So what you are doing is, in effect, punishing the other team for doing a better job at blocking the punt. Do you guys follow me?

Clyde Simmons running down the sidelines. From that day on I always felt the punt block rule made no sense. The punting team should not be allowed to advance a punt that is blocked. It makes no sense.
