During Eli's SNL appearance their was an old reporter with the name of an ex Giant who played on the 86 Super Bowl team. What is the name of the ex Giant they used for the name of the reporter? I Wonder if they knew the name they used was an ex Giants name?
I don't know if I picked that up. I haven't watched SNL in 20 years and the writing has gotten even more lame.

That would be the Occupy Wall Street skit and the reporter that kept hitting Eli with the microphone is named Herb Welch. I also agree with the "lame" comment.

Herb Welsh is correct, was surprised they used his name, could they have used a more obscure ex Giants name? It kinda took me off guard while watching.

Extra credit : What number did Herb wear and what position did he play?

Agree SNL is quite lame, the little bro skit was ok the rest meh

Good time to ask this...do any of you guys hear a name in everyday life that is an ex Giant and immediately think his number and poss. as well as the year he played?

Just like hearing Herb Welch, my friend introduced me to a guy named George Adams....click ...click...click.....33....Position and years friends?

Way to step up on Memorial Day jomo and YA.
On Memorial Day it's perfect to remember our ex-Giants, Al and Jack, who gave everything..
Tillman is a worthy man to remember, too. How many would have dropped a lucrative NFL career to voluntarily serve his country?

"Think current Cowboy." .... hahaha, this is a tough one. More importantly, that one victory was not against us.
Then again, that current Cowboy is NOT in the HOF and, unless he wins like the next 3 SB's, he never will be... so he doesn't qualify for the question.

Zim,

Sonny (Rare player I liked on Skins as a kid) did play in one playoff game in 1974. Redskins lost to Rams. He did not start though, so maybe it doesn't count.

Still trying to figure who is the answer. Maybe a pre SB era guy. Maybe I'll research this afternoon while watchin games.

He is considered Modern Era, but he is Pre-SB. And, my source didn't include Sonny ... it said the mystery man was the only Modern Day QB never to win a playoff game... but, it could have been wrong ... regardless, it isn't Sonny right now and there is another name I'm looking for.

hahahaha.
The answer is...
Y.A. Tittle.
Y.A. never won a playoff game
He played with the Baltimore Colts of the old AAFL, and they became the NFL's Baltimore Colts in 1950 and he played there one more year bevfore going to San Fran.
Then to the Giants.
According to Wiki, he is the only QB in the HOF who has never won a playoff game. If he won a game with the colts in '48 or '49, it doesn't count.

While you guys are racking your brains on allentown's question, here's another... Who is the only NFL QB who is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame that has played in playoff games but never had a playoff victory? ? Sonny Jergensen? I did look at list and this is my best guess... Not Sonny Zim, Sonny (Rare player I liked on Skins as a kid) did play in one playoff game in 1974. Redskins lost to Rams. He did not start though, so maybe it doesn't count. Still trying to figure who is the answer. Maybe a pre SB era guy. Maybe I'll research this afternoon while watchin games.I did a quick scan of SB era HOF quarterbacks and it looked to me like all of them had a playoff win. It must be an oldie..................I think. He is considered Modern Era, but he is Pre-SB. And, my source didn't include Sonny ... it said the mystery man was the only Modern Day QB never to win a playoff game... but, it could have been wrong ... regardless, it isn't Sonny right now and there is another name I'm looking for.Bob Waterfield? He won a game in 1951 playing for Rams against Browns..I am stumped. I looked at the entire list of HOF QB's and that was my best shot. OK, hint... his first NFL gig was with the Baltimore Colts. What's the answer to allentown's question.??Is this a trick question, like the guy played QB but got into the HOF on his coaching prowess?? hahahaha. The answer is... Y.A. Tittle. Y.A. never won a playoff game He played with the Baltimore Colts of the old AAFL, and they became the NFL's Baltimore Colts in 1950 and he played there one more year bevfore going to San Fran. Then to the Giants. According to Wiki, he is the only QB in the HOF who has never won a playoff game. If he won a game with the colts in '48 or '49, it doesn't count. YA played thereI think I've heard of him. Isn't he like a moderator here or something? [:D]
Exactly, after his illustrious career he decided to mod these boards.
I still don't know a final answer to Sonny Jurgenson.

I always come to this thread when I need the opinion of those who I truly trust, when it comes to matters relating to the Giants....

So hear I am, asking you guys about your opinion of Mark Collins. On another thread he was compared rather unfavorably to Cory Webster.

It surprised me and I wanted a second (and third, fourth and fifth) opinion.

So I open the floor to discussing M Collins....

I am definitely in Collin's corner. He was excellent, and a beast on run support.
Yet, to be fair, I saw Collins live dozens of times. I haven't seen Webster live, except for meaningless pre-season. You know that isn't a fair appraisal as most times you see a CB is when he gets beat. If he isn't getting beat, is he also there for run support. I just don't know about Webster, but someone here prob saw both Collins and Webster live. I try not to get too involved in evaluating any player by what they show on TV.

Mark Collins played at the beginning of the live ball era when passing started to benefit the receiver more yet he still made his mark on the Giants.

He played against some of the best receivers of his era. He consistently shut down Jerry Rice every time they played the 49ers. He is one of the best CB's to play for the Giants from the 1980s to today.

I'd rank him well above Corey Webster and TT. That's must my 2 cents.

Seen both live plenty of times. If I had to pick one...Collins. He was a more complete player. Very consistent. Great in run support. Webster an excellent cover corner, but a bit more inconsistent overall. Not much of a stat guy, but Avg 2-3 picks both a year..and Collins avg about 20 more tackles a year (And it's not like he had a weak D in front of him).

TY, Key... kinda what I thought as I rarely see Web in on a running plays... but Collins was frequently right there, with crushing tackles... despite having one of the best 7, ever, in front of him, as you ppointed out.
People's memories are short, and too many bring up comparisons of a current player to an older player that they never even saw play. And... you can NOT judge a CB or Safety by watching a game on TV

Exactly. I think my problem with Slipknottin is that I feel he states his opinions as fact and in this case I'm not sure he was more than ten years old when Collins played.

But he is entitled to his opinion.

Right, Ros... I've always liked slip, and he has many valuable opinions, but it's just not fair to evaluate a lot of positions when you watch TV. You can the OL and DL, and some on the LB's... but, I won't even evaluate a QB, who you can see every second that he has the ball as the focal point of the TV camers, because you can't see what he sees downfield.
But, that's alright... like you say, to each his own... it's what makes these boards interesting.

Yeah, I agree, it's very surprising.

Wiki..."Thanks largely to the dual occupancy of Giants Stadium by two NFL teams since 1984, it surpassed Wrigley Field (home of the Chicago Bears for fifty seasons) as the venue to have hosted more NFL games than any other in league history. The game played between the Jets and Miami Dolphins on September 14, 2003 was the 366th regular season NFL game at Giants Stadium breaking Wrigley's regular season record."

Wake UP!!! Here are some Meadowlands/Giant Stadium questions. Please only answer 1 and see if we can get 4 peeps contributing answers. 1) An easy one... Of course we know the Giants and Jets hosted games at the Meadowlands. Other professional football teams that have called Giants Stadium home over the years include the New Jersey Generals of the USFL; the New York/New Jersey Knights of the World League of American Football; and the New York/New Jersey Hitmen of the XFL. The New York Sentinels played one game at the stadium in the United Football League inaugural season There is one more... who? 2) What event hosted the Stadium record crowd. 3) What event hosted the second largest crowd? 4) Giant Stadium has hosted the most NFL games in league history. What edifice is second?

1. New Orleans Saints
2. the Pope's visit
3. the world cup?
4. Lambeau field?
Good shot there, NY No. 1 is correct... the saints. Your No, 2 is the answer to No, 3. So, who had the record attendance at Giant Stadium? It's not the Word Cup. No. 4 is not Lambeau Field.Is the LA Colloseum the answer to #4? Amazing that Giants Stadium is #1 in most games hosted in NFL history.

Regarding Giants Stadium hosting the most NFL games in league history....Remember, Giants Stadium has been home to two NFL football teams (not just one like everyone else) in the Superbowl Giants and the loser Jets for a long time. So this is easily understandable. Some history nut working at Giants Stadium is probably laughing off these questions.

Remember that the Jets weren't there all along. Lambeau, it would seem has been there since before the "frozen tundra of Lambeau field" which was in the '60's.

There is still another stadium that was the record holder before Giant stadium

Zim, your question got me doing some research since I guessed Wrigley correctly,but don't have much recollection of the bears playing there.</P>


I found out that the stadium was originally named Cubs Park and was much smaller than what it grew into as Wrigley Field. Cubs Park was built in 6 weeks for a cost of $250,000.</P>


Now for the questions:</P>


#1 In what year was the first Bears game played in Cubs Park aka Wrigley Field(within 5 years)?</P>


#2 In what year was the last Bears game playedat Wrigley Field. (within5 years)?</P>


#3 How many NFL games were played at Wrigley? (within 10)</P>


# Who did the Bears beat in that last home game at Wrigley? Hint: think NFL Central</P>

I didn't read about Wrigley's history... just enough to see that the Giants broke their record, and I think it was 334 or 336.
That has to represent about 45 years worth of games.
I'll guess that Soldier Field came about, and so Wrigley ended, in 1975... so, Wrigley started around 1930.
I'll guess they played Detroit in that last Wrigley game.
Built in 6 weeks for $250,000? Wow. I was at Wrigley for a Cubs game around 1992. I love the look of the ivy walls.

This is a superb question and I haven't got a chance in Hades of answering it.. Other than the obvious famous baseball players, like the mick, #7, or Yogi #8, I never paid attention to numbers on baseball or basketball players, at all. I don't know the number of my favorite Knick players, like Ewing, nor my Mets... can't remember Seaver's No.. I only paid attention to football players... because I couldn;t see their faces. Their number was their Identity. I didn't need to know Wilt's number, or DeBuschers No. to know who they were on the court, same with baseball. I knew them by position and body type and partial looks under their hat.
I'm gonna be very impressed with anyone who gets this... the fact that you know (2), SEC, is 2 more than I know.

Jim Brown, Bill Russel, Sandy Koufax

3 of my favorite athletes and I always thought is was cool that they wore the same number

I should have prefaced this question by adding I did not know the answer......That being said.....my friend must be talking early sixties. I checked and Y. A. you are right. I think Ican also add Elston Howard to that list. I asked and sent pics of Bill Russell to my pal of Russell wearing no.6. I guess this is common knowledge to all Celtic fans. Anyway he says at one point during one season the "big man" wore no.32........just guessing it might had something to do with a tribute to Jim Brown. He might have read it in Russell's book?</P>

Actually I was "Big Jeeps" thread on who will crack first and it got me to thinking about 17 year drought [1963-1981]without a post season game for our GMen so Y.A. got us there in 63 and Brunner was the first QB to get us back in the post season in 81</P>


None of us ever "cracked" from the"goodbye Allie[8]" days to "the fumble"</P>

Well, OK... my 4 seasons was valid (poor Brunner didn't make '86 and the SB), but your point is valid, too...lol.
Was '81 the season Phil had that horroble thumb break?
Of course, '81 was LT's rookie year... signalling that better times were ahead.
Doing well, SEC. I think I'll be going to the preseason game, New England on a Wednesday Night. Anyone else??

Giants vs. Bears NFL Championship in (I Think) '34? Actually, there was sort of a replay in '56! When the Gmen came out in the 2nd half with sneakers on, George Halas told his players to step on their feet!
They got the sneakers from the basketball team supplies at Manhattan College ahh....but who was sent to get the sneakers......? hmmmmm The equipment manager? ... I read the story a few times over the years, but can't remember. I also went to Manhattan College, so it's part of their lore, along with Brother Jasper initiating the 7th inning stretch ritual.I always understood that in the '34 game it was the equipment manager who was dispatched to secure the magical footwear.

His name was Abe Cohen (not that I knew that off the top of my head!)
You mean you and Abe weren't best friends back in '34???

Happy 4th everyone

Here is the guy that suggested it (according to HC Owen)....

Name something else he is famous for ( other than HOF)...

BTW...Not funny Zim..Ole? yes..but ...HAHAA!
It's Ray Flaherty... but, other than coaching and the sneakers game, I don't know what he is famous for.

No takers?

1st jersey # retired in NFL history...1935

although one player on Giants wore the # 1 after that briefly...

It is a little more work retrieving this thread but here's how I did it. It seems that the default screen has posts for the past few days, now sorted by time of post (that's good). To find DYK, I went to the bottom of the page, expanded the search to 1 week (I know I've seen it since the new boards went up) then I sorted alphabetically. There it was on the first page nestled in among the other "D's".

Now, for the reason I'm here. Name this good looking Giants legend.

Well, for the first time since 1976 when the new Meadowlands opened, I will NOT be receiving the Giant Tickets.

This year I will only be going to the Patriots preseason game.
Anyone else going?

Agree on AB, jomo. I wonder how many others think of him in that company? To me the entire reason why he belongs is effort... Among all of our backs through the years I think AB gives his most on almost every play. His supreme effort is the only reason he ever fumbles... overextending his reach/control, and it also results in more knicks and tweaks and stress on his feet and body.
I might put Ron 3rd and Joe Morris 4th... only because Joe had the most huge holes to run through that there ever was. In contrast, Ron ran behind gutsy, but small and outmuscled O-lines where a 12 inch crease was all Ron needed to slide through. and Ron had a nice burst once he cleared a hole. Joe Morris was just one speed... quick

Here's another obscure one. In the same playoffs on their way to the superbowl, what Giants defensive back forced a fumble deep in Minnesota territory on their opening return right after we scored, which led to fullback Greg Comella's amazing td reception (and only one ever I believe).

Naturally I've seen it over and over again. It's still cool. One of the top ten plays in over 50 years of watching.
When it happened, and he dove and deflected it, you'd have been thrilled with just the INT. Then he came up from the ground for the INT, and then running the TD.
Ultra smooth Sehorn looked like he was flowing in slow mo.
It was almost in the same shock effect category as Tyree's "Catch".

Thank you, SEC...
Even "Almost' is a stretch.
I just watched the Catch again, for the 50th time. It is impossible for me to get tired of watching it. The implication is a SB victory.

With Sehorn's play I watch it just to be amazed by his athleticism... and the fact that it helped us beat Philly. As nice as that was, it was not a Super Bowl miracle..

ZIt has been 12 years since that catch and the athleticism of the players today is running well ahead of the norm from back then (time marches on in all sports). What he did on that play is as remarkable today as it was back then,

Actually, it's pretty hilarious when you think about it... we all know Sehorn was a very gifted athlete. That INT was athleticism at its best, in fluid motion.
Remarkable... right?
Well, yeah... Then how come one of the lasting images I'll always have of Jason, when I do hear his name, will be him trying to run while he's holding up his pants in the SuperBowl? Embarrassing for his legacy, eh?
After the game his wife, Angie Harmon was interviewed and angrily said, "Well, you can't expect Jason to hold up his defective uniform AND make all the tackles."

He was athletically gifted but he wasn't really a guy's guy was he? He was kind of a new age ball player and I'm not especially drawn to that type. I prefer old school players with a little bit of a chippy side.

I was at that preseason game. I see his return pretty clearly. I remember being very nervous before the game because I thought it was an unnecessary risk...
The fates had no other possible outcome considered... "You are really going to risk your best DB on a preseason KO return?? I shall show you who is boss."

The Giants once swung a big trade with Dallas. Big Blue received a starting quarterback who didn't do much for us. In return, the Giants sent a number 1 draft choice to the Cowboys. The 'boys used that pick to select a player who would become a Hall of Fame defensive lineman.

For example, check this out:
http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/nyg/1985.htm
Within 30 seconds on that page I had a question...
Name the only other (2) Giants, besides Simms, to throw a pass in the 1985 season.
George Adams and Sean Landetta.
Do people think I know that question off the top of my head?
I don't use the reference to answer a question... you're supposed to leave that to someone's real memory... but if it's a hard question that no one seems to answer for a while, I'll look up the answer and state that fact in my answer.
By the way, Ros... I think we're gonna have to go to the references to answer your 4 in a row question.

Also, Ros, I have 2,286 posts on this thread. Do you know how to find that? Go to this thread on your TAGF page, and there's an envelope (probably a pinkish/salmon color) on the left. mouse over that and your number of posts for that thread will show up.

Lol. I don't even know how to put the picture of my sons back under my name.

Plus, you don't have to have any special knowledge to ask a question on here.
I usually check out the profootball reference.
For example, check this out:
http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/nyg/1985.htm
Within 30 seconds on that page I had a question...
Name the only other (2) Giants, besides Simms, to throw a pass in the 1985 season.
George Adams and Sean Landetta.
Do people think I know that question off the top of my head?
I don't use the reference to answer a question... you're supposed to leave that to someone's real memory... but if it's a hard question that no one seems to answer for a while, I'll look up the answer and state that fact in my answer.
By the way, Ros... I think we're gonna have to go to the references to answer your 4 in a row question.

I usually just write down stuff I hear on a show that I think would make a good question for you guys. As far as my question of the four losses in a row, I heard it on the 2011 highlight video. I'm not sure you can find that in the references.

I watched that, but didn't pick out that reference.
But, since it was mentioned in the 2011 SB, I'll say the Patriots of 2011.

Redskins @ Giants

Giants lose in OT
two late deadly field goals if you remember

anyway....

Phil Simms started the game and Scott Brunner finished the game.

You just snuck in...
Great to CYA, YA.
Is that the game where Phil smashed his thumb on a helmet on a follow-through?

Joe Delano wow. Great job Jomo. Try this...

The 2011 Giants lost four straight games but still won Super Bowl XLVI. How many other teams have accomplished that feat and name them.

Ok here's the answer

The answer is none. No team has ever lost four in a row in the regular season and gone on to win the SB in that season before the 2011 Giants did. They were the first.

They were the first.I never knew that before but heard it mentioned on the NFL Network last night. (Americas Game).I would have guessed it had happened before.

Finally stumped Jomo. Wow, you're slowing down. I guess it was all those personal appearances during the off season with Victor Cruz lol.

Former Giant Tom Landry is well known for accomplishing something very special with respect to NFL opening day. What was his unbelievable accomplishment with another team?

He is conspicuous by his absence. I kknow he's always busy... but, that doesn't change the fact that I miss him being here every day..He is the juice that makes this thread GO, and the juicer is near empty.
We also need SEC again, and rbcarpenter is gone and says he can't get back on... so, we need the old blood to hang in there, and we need some new blood to spice things up. I've heard a few peeps say they don't come on here cuz they don't know as much as the older timers. Rubbish... we old timers have asked all our old questions and can't remember anymore. Recently I'm wrong as often as I'm right.. That's why mike was good... she was really exc on anything from '90 to the present.

yea I miss SEC105 posts too...he always had cool pictures of old time players.
