Can anyone tell me if they can remember a more successful 2nd string QB than Hoss? We were a well oiled machine that year. Hoss came in and the vet players around him weren't going to let him fail.</P>

I really have thought about this, because I was always a Simms supporter. I think we win with either of them. Again, it was a complete team effort. Great defense, great offensive line, OJ at RB, vets on both sides of the ball. If Simms is healthy we still win,. just differently. You can't disregard Hoss' ability to scramble and all the times he kept drives alive. But, Simms, instead of scrambling, would have hung in there until the last second and found a way to complete a pass.just before getting crushed. </P>


It was destiny, and it was great to follow.</P>

We would have crushed Chicago in '86. My only 2 regrets that year were that we didn't get the chance for revenge against Chicago after they whupped us in '85, and that Rob Carpenter wasn't there to enjoy the ride to the SB after helping to bring our Offense back to respectability</P>

yeah, Thomas was a good pickup... nice effort on the blocked punt. I couldn't believe the size of JPP's arms when they showed him sitting on the bench. The man is built.</P>


I surely have a terrible memory but on the INT by Eli, I said that I thought it was the worst pass he ever threw as a Giant. It had zero chance with 3 guys around Boss. I love Eli, but he has some DUH moments every game.</P>

Just telling it like it was... remember all that talk about who our receivers would be? And, you kept mentioning Hagan deserving a spot. I never would have known a thing about him if you hadn't pointed him out. He's done a great job for us and should surely take Barden's spot for the rest of the year. </P>


Next year will be scary when Cruz returns, Hagan, Barden (he looks slow to me... maybe cuz of his size), Manningham, Smith, Nicks. Hixon will be back. Calhoun probably gone.</P>


Gotta also point out how nicely they're using Pascoe.</P>


This can be a scary good team, in all 3 facets. Now, don't shoot yourselves in the foot.</P>

I never would have known a thing about him if you hadn't pointed him out.* He's done a great job for us and should surely take Barden's spot for the rest of the year.* </P>


Next year will be scary when Cruz returns, Hagan, Barden (he looks slow to me... maybe cuz of his size), Manningham, Smith, Nicks. Hixon will be back. Calhoun probably gone.</P>


Gotta also point out how nicely they're using Pascoe.</P>


This can be a scary good team, in all 3 facets.* Now, don't shoot yourselves in the foot.</P>


Giants/Jets in the SB, in Dallas.* Eat it, Jerry</P>

agreed

Pascoe chipping the slipping out into a route is a sweet release valve for Eli.....

I believe I, COUGH.. spoke highly of Hagen in training camp this year. COUGH!

It's nice to see him get a chance.


These next 4 weeks are going to be insane. Some poor team is going to be 10 or 11 wins in the NFC and not make the playoffs.

We better get in. I think our road is the toughest.

agreed

There is a chance we could lose all four games but the most important thing to me as a fan is that the giants have given us another season where they are playing important games down the stretch. They seem to do that every year with TC it's all you can really ask for as a fan. I do think with if we get healthy the sky is the limit for us.

You have been to a ton of games, were you at the 1981 game against the Cowboys where the Giants won in ot? That win got them in the playoffs</p>my favorite would have to be split between 1981 and 1997-both teams were picked for last in the division,and both made the playoffs(81-first time in 18 years,97-winning the division).both teams fielded killer d's,81 d 3rd overall(but with the last ranked offense,they were probably the best that year),and the 97 version being a freaking turnover producing machine.both teams did what they did with back-ups at qb(brunner in for simms,kannell in for brown).so,overall,a lot of similarities.of course,1981 also brought in my namesake,lol!

i know i was at that game...i was 14,it was the 7th game i ever attended,i thought i was going to go deaf...the only thing it could compare to was the nfc championship games we played at home(from what i've heard),buti didn't attend either of them.

It was the first year Aunt Jean missedseveral games, so I got to bring my son and Kris and get her into football. The defensive lineup was one of my favs of all times... Martin, Mendenhall, Archer, Jeter, Gregory, Van Pelt, Carson, Kelley, Terry Jackson, Rhodes, Reese... these guys were great, total effort on every play, and it was Archer's last year, so I remember it fondly. Jennings made Pro Bowl as the punter. Also had Kotar, Csonka, VanHorn, Jimmy Robinson... for some reason this team stuck with me.</P>

Yeah, I guess it's all in your perspective, SZJ... Because it was Simms and LT's last year I don't think of that team with a smile... just sadness... so sorry to see them go. Having watched LT all those years it was also hard to recognize that he wasn't his old, dominating self... but, as I said at the time, even though he is a shadow of his better years, he is still in the top 50%, or better, of all LB's in the NFL.</P>

Jennings made Pro Bowl as the punter. Also had Kotar, Csonka, VanHorn, Jimmy Robinson... for some reason this team stuck with me.</p>

beautiful zim

that team was all heart.

....and most fans dont see it this way......but that Pisarcik play was one of the best things to ever happen to this organization....as you have stated here many timescan we all imagine what the last 32 years would have been like WITHOUT that play?(shudder!)

This was hard for me. The most recent Super Bowl team was great and the was the best run ever. But the 1990 team was probably my favorite. It is really the earliest team I really remember well and the memories of watching games with my dad that season are some of the best.<font color="#0000ff"> I still think I can name every player on that team and their number right off the top of my head.

Troy Kyles and Kent Wells.

</P>


Hey RBC.............how did you enjoy those Club Seats? and where were they in the stadium?</P>


Z</P>


the seats were in sec 215,row 5,seats 9,10,and 11,about 10 rows in front of the touchdown club,on the giants side of the field,on the 40 yard line.great seats!....and i had to love the surprise on-field passes for before the game![&lt;:o)]

</P>


Sounds great........you guys must have loved it! Did you giveEli a few tips on how to handle the wind in the new place while you were on the field [;)]</P>


Z</P>


no,we were actually on the skins side of the field,and they wouldn't let us around to the giants side.my friend starr was loving it though,she's the one in the skins gear in the pic....hey,sec 105,could you p.m. me some instuctions to help me post these pics?(NOT as an avatar).i can't find the instructions on here anywhere![:@]
</P>


If you can do that, SEC, I'd also like to know how you did it. I took rbc's pic and made it bigger, hoping to post it as a sig.,and the distortion was really bad... wasn't worth it... low mp's.If you can take that pic and enlarge it to be clear, I'm interested to know how.</P>

I'll always be mad that Pitt went to the AFC. It should have been Philly, Pitt, Washington and the Giants in 1 division. We had a great rivalry with Pit for a while, and they and Philly are naturally anti-magnetic. Instead, they continued to grace us with the Cowboys.</P>

OJ was a premier backin the NFL with the Cardinalsand when he came to the Giants he never showed one second of ego, just doing whatever was asked. If he was on the field he performed. Need a block, he never missed his assignment. If he was on the sidelines, he was supportive. He was a perfect fit to round out our needs... an unselfish, veteraninfluence forthe team.</P>

he used to run it pretty well back in the early 2000s, before fassel let him get all fat.

to answer the question, its gotta be phil. he only threw 4 interceptions in 14 games in 1990, so we'll say he would thrown 8 MAX if he lasted all season

its actually a tie....

Eli Manning with 10 in 2008
Dave Brown with 10 in 1995

Brown is a shocker right?

I thought so

a close second would be Tarkenton with 11 in 1971
and Simms with 11 in 1988
but they actually missed one game each

its actually a tie....

Eli Manning with 10 in 2008
Dave Brown with 10 in 1995

lol...I can't believe one of them was Dave Brown... I wonder how many touchdowns he threw that year.

Brown is a shocker right?

I thought so

a close second would be Tarkenton with 11 in 1971
and Simms with 11 in 1988
but they actually missed one game each

The only way I can reconcile Dave Brown is that it was the Rodney Hampton show for several years, run-run-pass sometimes run-run-run.

I just looked this up but in 1969 Tarkenton only had 8 picks along with 23 touchdown passes...He had some really good years with the giants...I also saw that the 1970 team was pretty decent...I always assumed we were awful in every year of that decade.

wow..nice RBC how did you get that so easily?those playoff losses are indelibly etched in my mind..that one,flipperbowl,the p.i. in s.f....those are the ones in which you don't forget the details.







by the way,i've said it before and i'll say it again... WHEN JAKE REED CAUGHT THAT BALL IN THE END ZONE,HIS SECOND FOOT WAS SQUARELY ON THE END LINE!SHOULD HAVE BEEN RULED INCOMPLETE!

I have a question I don't know the answer to. I thought of it during the Lions and Packer game.


If the clock is running under 2:00 at the end of the game, and there is a false start, is there a 10 second run off?

I was thinking that the Lions had to run a 4th down play because there was a 2 second differential between the game clock and the play clock. I was thinking, can Detroit jump offside 3rd down on purpose to get a 10 second run off and thus not have to run a 4th down play?

The requirement that the offense has to be behind in the score or the score has to be tied for a 10-second clock runoff to be exercised against the offense for an excess timeout with two minutes to go in the first half or in the game has been eliminated. Now a 10-second runoff will take place no matter what the game situation. Any possible advantage for the offense (e.g., the old rule would not require a 10-second runoff if it were ahead) has been eliminated. The defense has the option to decline a 10-second runoff (which will give it more time should it get the ball back).

I'd love to hear what zim and SEC fav teams were......... wheres my boys?</p>


Of course I loved the 3 SB teams, but the other team/year that I enjoyed most was 1978... that was a 6-10 team, and they lost 7 of their last 8. Watched 'The Fumble' gamewith my son. How could I think of them?</p>


It was the first year Aunt Jean missedseveral games, so I got to bring my son and Kris and get her into football. The defensive lineup was one of my favs of all times... Martin, Mendenhall, Archer, Jeter, Gregory, Van Pelt, Carson, Kelley, Terry Jackson, Rhodes, Reese... these guys were great, total effort on every play, and it was Archer's last year, so I remember it fondly. Jennings made Pro Bowl as the punter. Also had Kotar, Csonka, VanHorn, Jimmy Robinson... for some reason this team stuck with me.</p>

beautiful zim

that team was all heart.

....and most fans dont see it this way......but that Pisarcik play was one of the best things to ever happen to this organization....as you have stated here many timescan we all imagine what the last 32 years would have been like WITHOUT that play?(shudder!)


Excellent point of view to take on it.

Whenever an Eagle fan brings up the "Miracle at the Meadowlands", I say thank you for that moment.

It got the coaching staff fired and they brought in a new staff with a young guy at LB coach named Bill Parcells.

It made Pete Rozelle strong-arm Wellington Mara into bringing in GM George Young from the Colts. The first thing he did was draft Phil Simms and then two years later Lawrence Taylor.

So, thank you Philadelphia Eagles, because your regular season embarassment caused us to bring in the guy that gave the Giants their modern glory era with two Super Bowl wins and set a foundation for winning that continues to this day.

beautiful zim

that team was all heart.

....and most fans dont see it this way......but that Pisarcik play was one of the best things to ever happen to this organization....as you have stated here many timescan we all imagine what the last 32 years would have been like WITHOUT that play?(shudder!)


Excellent point of view to take on it.

Whenever an Eagle fan brings up the "Miracle at the Meadowlands", I say thank you for that moment.

It got the coaching staff fired and they brought in a new staff with a young guy at LB coach named Bill Parcells.

It made Pete Rozelle strong-arm Wellington Mara into bringing in GM George Young from the Colts.* The first thing he did was draft Phil Simms and then two years later Lawrence Taylor.

So, thank you Philadelphia Eagles, because your regular season embarassment caused us to bring in the guy that gave the Giants their modern glory era with two Super Bowl wins and set a foundation for winning that continues to this day.


exactly.....

in a very round about way....that one play is Semi responsible for our first two Lombardi trophies

Of course I loved the 3 SB teams, but the other team/year that I enjoyed most was 1978... that was a 6-10 team, and they lost 7 of their last 8. Watched 'The Fumble' game*with my son. How could I think of them?</p>

You and I both know that it's not spin, YA. That calamity, and all the intensified fan grumblings,clarified for Rozelle that something had to be done to take the Mara's out of football/team decisions. And, George Young was perfect... he was ready to takeall team decisions onto himself, knowing that the Mara's would have no say. And, Young begat Accorsi, and Accorsi begat Reese. And we've had a much steadier ship these past 31 years.</P>


I'm not sure if Rozelle intercedes without the fumble, but I know he saw the handwriting on the wall, even before the fumble... after all, there was nearly 20 years of futility from what had been a premiere team. But, even a 1 year delay in him acting might have meant someone other than George Young. One thing I can guarantee to you... If George Young were not there, we would not havedrafted Simms, which was an integral part of our recovery.</P>

Several years ago, at the 80th birthday party for Giants patriarch Wellington Mara, Pisarcik learned there might have been another reason for the ill-advised play call by offensive coordinator Bob Gibson. Jim Galat, then a Giants defensive assistant, approached Pisarcik and, according to Pisarcik, told him the following story:


</P>


</P>


"You ran out there and fell on the ball, and I turned to Gibby and said, 'Hey, that's not a bad idea. Just fall on the ball.'


</P>


</P>


"Bob said, 'Hey, I'll call the plays here, not you. Don't worry about it.'"


</P>


</P>


If that exchange occurred -- and, in the historic context of friction between offenses and defenses, it rings true -- it sheds some light on Gibson's motivation. Was The Fumble ultimately born of a coach's stubbornly exercising his authority?


</P>


</P>


"Yes," Pisarcik said, nodding his head. "Very much so." </P>

Pete Previte was the club house manager at Yankee Stadium......

He was the one who suggested to put ...I think it was Barnes and Patton in on offense and have them run go routes because they were the fastest guys on the squad....

it worked the very first time they tried it ......I believe it was Barnes who caught the TD

the trainer I was asking about was John Johnson.....NY Giants trainer for 60 years....

he retired the day after Superbowl XLII.....and indeed taped both Old Miss QBs ankles.......Charlie Conerly and Eli Manning


back to Pete Previte......

it was Kubiak yes.......

as for Simms back up.....pretty sure it wasnt Hoss because I think he watched that game from the stands ....I remember reading something about how he wasnt even on the sidelines......

so it must have been Rutledge....

Honestly, YA... after 50 years of watching the Giants, I have a decent feel for the pulse of their character. I think this is a bounce back team. I think they'll recognize that they have the talent to do exactly what they need to do, as they were doing yesterday until a number of brain farts struck. They're always shooting themselves in the foot, but I think they have the character and maturity to learn from this and to come back strong. Guys seem to be able to correct their mistakes... Bradshaw hasn'e been fumbling; Eli needed a turnover free game and delivered; Jacobs has a new attitude; The O-line is getting healthier; The D played great until that last 8 minute meltdown. Everyone lost their concentration, maybe thinking the lead was insurmountable.</P>


I think Dodge has a good future... but, his nerves are killing us this rookie year. That last punt was nerves. He didn't have to rush it, but his brain panics... he should be ok these last 2 regular season games, but he'll need some valium in the playoffs.</P>


One more first down in the <U>second-to-last possession</U> and we win, even with their comeback. Hagan's inexperience cost us a possible completion. If we get it, we're just about FG range, we use more clock... they can score againand we still win, 34-31, and the last punt with 14 seconds left doesn't happen because we would have used that time after a first down.</P>


The special teams coaching on the on-sides kick was as bad as Dodge's mistake. How do you NOT antici[pate an onside kick there?????? </P>


But, again, this team learns from their mistakes. We've run the gammut of mistakes this year... INT's off of tipped passes, fumbles by Bradshaw; brain freezes by Eli on bad pass decisions,and a half-asped slide for a costly fumble. I think it's corrected.</P>


</P>


I don't think this meltdown, and beating ourselves happens again this season. A team will have to outplay us to beat us.</P>

Thank you, YA. Now I remember that, but didn't remember that there were that many tix made available. it would be cool to know how many of those 18,000 became full-time season ticket owners.</P>

yeah that would be cool to know huh???

Im looking forward to the next couple days....ill get to pick uncle Tonys brain a bit more about the old days.....

he has this story about meeting Charlie Conerly outside the Concourse Plaza Hotel that I cant remember the details to.....I was there with him and my dad but I have zero recollection of it....it was in '59 I think......I was like 6 or 7

I want to get the details of tha one and many others to share with you guys....

uncle T is like the gateway to the stories of the 40s and 50s to me.........he was a rabid fan back then ...and I owe a good amount of what I know about the Giants to him

WTG, YA. They needed a new Mod to mod this DYK thread... you, know, there's so much bad stuff going on here. :)</P>


yeah, back then the Concouse Plaze was home to most of the guys, and some of the wives. Uncle Tony is a relic... probably forgot more than we'll ever know. He and aunt Jean surely bumped into each other at Yankee Stadium in the hustle and bustle of the crowd.</P>
