Wow, good one YA.I don't remember that name at all, so I looked it up... sure enough, Jim Prestel, for one year, 1966, at Left Defensive Tackle. I'm surprised I didn't remember... Prestel... I would have thought Pretzel. I always thought, "Joe Taffoni, no baloney (here's a non-Giant related question... why is it bolgna, and not baloney? Some one was playing with our language.)</P>


I'm hoping Osi will wear the number about 7-8 more years for us</P>

I might be dating myself here (but that's ok, in high school, I dated myself plenty) but the earliest memory I have of the Giants was when I was a little kid and Childs returned a kickoff back for a TD against the Browns, but I'm not sure it was the Browns. Had to be '63, '64.

You know, one of the main reasons why this thread is awesome is because the name Joe Taffoni is discussed. I'm not sure but I think there's room on the web for JoeTaffoni.com, a mellow site where his fans can go and remember the glory days.

wow ..close Zimmy......

it was Andys arch enemy Tim Mara.......I always thought he was a real dirt bag.....

he had no interest in football...just money......

he did something terrible to snub Wellington at the white house when the team was invited after the '86 win..............

anyone know what happened?

it was something that deeply embarrassed Well and I believe he carried it with him and never forgave Tim till the day he passed.

I want to say Bob Tucker but you said WR...so .....I am thinking it was the guy we aquired that year or the year before.....Walker Gillette.....?????


when they went to the Whitehouse after the 86 win....Tim Maras people ...who took care of the business side of things for the NYG had written the presentation speach for President Reagan.....

when it came time for Reagan to speak, without him knowing the signifigance of it... he presented.....(whatever they present to teams)...to GM George Young......and not President Well Mara.....

Tim strategically planned it that way to burn Wellington ....

Mel Hein it was.

After the 4th and 17 just a guess Joe Morris up the middle to set up the hashmark for Allergre(sp)
</p>


That was the play Morris put it right where Allegre wanted to kick from.</p>

Our seats at Yankee Stadium we had to walk across a cat walk to get to them we had a table in front of us and no floor. Dad said they were press boxes for Baseball. When they opened Giants Stadium the Giants said we will have almost the same view. Dad said that the view was almost identical.If we get the same view in this new place I'll be happy.

That's right..Saints (?1968) I can't recall exactly what happened, but I think he spiked ball after TD or something and like 4 or 5 Saints jumped on him and pounded him. I remember my mother using many a four letter word at the "dirty" Saints.</P>


That was a bad fight against the Saints. It all started when Greg Larson got pissed offof at some of the Saint players and ended with Homer taking of his helmet and swinging it at any Saint player he could. Seemed like there so many players involved. Took a while to get it ended</P>

Good call, YA - Francis Peay... another 1st round bummer. He stayed with us 2 seasons and then was off to green Bay for 4-5 seasons, and finished his career at the Chiefs. </P>


This was a period where all our 1st round picks were as bad as our team. I don't think we got any consistency in drafting until Young came along, and even then we drafted some wastes in the first round. I do think our drafting under Accorsi and Reese have been top-notch, and valuable up and down the whole draft process.</P>

Good call on the Kelly Q&amp;A. I was just about to ask a question with Kelly as an answer. </P>


- In LT's first year, the LB's were LT, Carson, Kelly, and ???</P>


- How many years did these 4 play together?</P>


- After that, what two LB's took the place of Kelly and ???</P>


</P>


Van Pelt? I think they played together 3 years then Carl Banks and Andy Headon stepped in. Best I can remember for now Z............... Hope thats somewhat right[:D]</P>

what 14th round pick in 1973 out of Cal Lutheran became a pretty darn good defensive player for the Giants for a decade?


...wow...remember 17 round drafts?.....crazy










Z
</P>


That was Brian Kelly , what a good pick he was. Always bothered me that some of those great stalwarts of the 70s and early eighties never got the SB glory. There always be remembered as great Giants however</P>


Good call on Francis Peay you guys and yes I believe he did play defense in college but the Giants had their own ideas[:'(]</P>


Homers 98 yarder has come up quite a bit lately. In that same game he had another long touchdown from Earl Morrall. How long was the other one? 1966 or 1967</P>


Z</P>

funny you ask that......

I just watched the NFL Films film of that game last night......

against the Steelers in a game that ended in a 34 all tie.....

...Homer caught one for 75yd and one for 98 in that game.........he lit em up that day.....


a D back in that same game had a 72 yd fumble recovery TD....

.....who was it?

First, YA, was it Wendall Harris who returned the 72 yd TD against Pittsburgh? I couldn't remember our 4 DB's that season. I remembered Spider, Carr, and Childs, but not Harris... had to lookhim up in the '66 season.</P>


It was Van Pelt. What surprised me was that he and Kelly played 3 yrs with LT. I didn't remember it being that long.</P>


Hunt and Reasons replaced Kelly and Van Pelt. But, Byron Hunt came to us in '81 and played a lot of LB, even though he was officially listed as a starter for only the '84 season. He was with us through the '88 season.Banks didn't arrive until '84, and was officially the starter in '85.</P>


Another thing I totally forgot until just now to see how many seasons Banks played with us.... like not allowingmyself to remember that Bavaro played for the Eagles... Banks playedfor the Skins 1 season, and for the Browns 2 yrs. I totallyforgot that Banks did not end his career with the Gmen. I hate it when our great players close out their careers with other teams.</P>

Yeah, it was a great day until we lost. We were 13 years in to our down period. Seeing all those great Giants made Jean andme really proud... she kept saying... these were guys who really knew how to play the game, and she was right.</P>


Despite all the bad years, we mostly had defenses we could be poud of. In that 1976 season, for example, in our last 7 games we gave up an average of 12.1 points per game (17 pts against was the highest), and we went 3-4 because our offense was bad. God, how happy I am that those days are gone. There were many great Giants to make us proud, and who played their hearts out for us, but we just had bad teams, or bad coaching.</P>

lol, jints 10... so true. And, you could always hope Jennings would take a nose-dive faking contact and give the Offense 15 more yards that they otherwise couldn't get themselves. If our D is on the field, we have a chance to score.... sad that that was our mental approach during those times... starting in the mid 60's, but we have mostly had D's that we could be proud of, and O's that were foregttable. As for Morton, he was done by the time he came to us, like Czonka... they were 2 vets that couldn't help us climb out of the cesspool.</P>


I remember how proud we were in our new stadium... seems like yesterday. To me, it is still perfectly serviceable.</P>

Were you guys at the Bears game when Walter Payton was going for the single season rushing record.It was the last game that I can remember snow/sleet actually coming down at Giants stadium.
Walter had -8 in the first half. Csonka had almost 100 for the day and we lost. All I had to hang my hat on that day was the fact we denied Walter the record. For a Giant fan in 1977 I was proud even though we lost, pride was defense.

I haven't got a clue, but I'll guess Kotar for 7 yards. </P>




Csonka for 6

Were you guys at the Bears game when Walter Payton was going for the single season rushing record.It was the last game that I can remember snow/sleet actually coming down at Giants stadium.
Walter had -8 in the first half. Csonka had almost 100 for the day and we lost. All I had to hang my hat on that day was the fact we denied Walter the record. For a Giant fan in 1978 I was proud even though we lost, pride was defense.
</P>


Good memory, jints10... I know I was there, but I can't remember...lol. You are so right... every game we left with pride for our D, and resignation that we just weren't able to get anything done on offense... game after game; year after year. After all those bad years of offense, I understood what Jean meant when she said the O Line was the heart of a good team. When I saw the Suburbanites maturing and working so well together, I understood. When we lost the NFC Championship in Chicago I was 100% sure we were going to win it all the bext year... all because of the O line. We didn't have any great receivers, but we blocked like Helm for Morris, and, naturally, we had a great Defense.</P>

1st and 10 ....PUNT! PUNT ! PUNT! ....hahahahahaha....

....I love it......that sums it up nicely........


I agree Zim...I think our Stadium is perfectly fine.....

it feels like a real "keeping up with the Jones' " type thing to me......


on that memorable and not so memorable day ........Oct 10 '76........Csonka and Kotar combined for just over 100 yds but only one crossed the goal line......

Im surprised I dont remember stopping Walter from the record.......

Im sure I was there though.....

.....I do remember Brad Van Pelt hitting Walter Payton so hard one time that he didnt know where he was for a few minutes......


Speaking of Brad.......he stole quite a few INTs in his time.......of his 11 years as a GIant how many of those seasons did he have no INTs?

I could never forget this guy that sits behind us yelling in the thickest of NY accents " No recud dis year Walta". At the time I thought it was the funniest thing ever. That same guy, whenever an opposing teams player gets hurt yells "shoot em and get em off da field" though not politically correct our section always cheers. He has been yelling it for over 30 years now.

VanPelt had alot of int.'s for a LBer thats for sure, so I'll go with only 2 years for not having an int.
Probably one being his rookie year.

That was going to be my guess... 2 seasons. He had great vision when he was backing in to coverage, I'll make a different guess and say 1 year with no INT.</P>


Good story jints10... that would be a gas, although the Giant fans really did have a lot of respect for opposing players that got injured... unlike our Eagle counterparts who are elated when an opposing player gets hurt... ala Michael Irvin, when it appeared he might have a serious neck injury... they cheered that he got hurt.</P>


Happy Mother's Day to all the ladies in your families</P>

My seats are in 139, but I went over to some buddies seats in 130 for that game. Sheer misery, but we just couldn't leave. The Quoted attendance is higher than you would think, and I KNOW there were less..WAY LESS by halftime!

Bundra made me think... how many others were there, like Bundra, who came and went quickly during the Allie years, '61 - '68.. The total sad destruction of our D begins in '64, and from then to '68 there are many names I don't recognize. </P>


Looking at the starting lineups from '61 - '68 I noticed one name that never changes... he was drafted by us in '56, and he was the only Defensive player who played in all the Allie years... #75... This is an easy one, but he deserves some homage forbeing the last man standing from that great D. Who is he?</P>

going to games in those days he made me feel like I had a connection to those Great Great teams of '56-63 that I only got to see as a very young kid....

It was 12/4/1983. Official attendance was 25,156. NO WAY were there that many in stands after 1st quarter even! Giants lost to Cards (still in our division then) 10-6. Giants total of 142 yards. S Brunner (remember him) threw 4 INTs. Yes, a low point for sure in Giants history...but memories just the same. So for some of our younger brothers on this board, ya gotta remember that many of us middle age or older folks that you scream and complain about, supported this team in times when many others would have given up! We will see if all of you hang in there if and when tough times return. I'm sure you will. See ya at the game.

Absolutely right Key....

...can you imagine if there were message boards in those days?.....

......these boards explode when Eli throws a couple picks.....or the defense gives up some big plays....

.....can you imagine if some of these guys were around then?......there would be heart attacks running rampant through Big Blue Nation..........

.....lots of these younger fans are spoiled....and I mean that in the nicest way......I wish I was.....I had to sit through those terrible years when we were the laughing stock of the division......through the games where we couldnt complete a pass......

...it was tough..........tough when you have nothing to cheer for.......when the team constantly looks flat....when the Giant front office is internally warring while desperately looking for that player that will provide that spark.......bringing in guys that are supposed to be the savior ...then releasing him a season later cus he didnt perform...........rough days......

Back in the early days of ABC's Wide World of Sports they'd carry the Grey Cup every year. I came to enjoy watching the Canadian football. One Grey Cup game, maybe '63, was played in the thickest fog you could imagine. Visibility was about 10-15 yards and the danged QB's were completing about 50%. QB would throw the ball, it would disappear in the fog, and you'd wait for them to find out if it was completed or not. They were completing 30-40 yard passes... it was unreal.</P>

Who was our leading reciver in 1975... Joe Dawkins, Ray Rhodes, Bob Tucker. Walker Gillette, or Ron Johnson,

that was Walker Gillette...his best season as a pro if Im not mistaken.....

I remember him making a great catch at Shea against his old team the Chargers in 1975...I thought he would be with us for a while.....I was wrong......


.....who led the team in INTs that same year...?
</P>


Bobby Brooks ? Just off the top ofmy head</P>


Like Z mentioned I remember Atkins as being HUGE Thought he might fit the bill on the other question but no luck</P>


From whom did the Giants obtain Alex Webster?</P>

Brooks is right brother.....

.....I believe Webster was drafted by Washington.........that could be totaly wrong ......

So far no one got it right. I will give you all a hint. What I meant by being Giants at some point not only means possibly during the season, but they could possibly be Giants only during the off-season.</P>


One kicker is currently on his 3rd team regular season wise and the Giants signed him as an undrafted free agent in 1996</P>


The otherkicker the Giants drafted before one of their Superbowl seasons. He has kicked for one team regular season wise and has become one of the best, more consistent kickers in NFL history. He is currently a free agent. </P>


The punter was signed by the Giants in 1997, but that wasn't the first NFL team to sign him. He hasn't played since the 2007 season and he was signed because of an injury to the teams original punter.</P>

ok in 1990 we had Matt Bahr and Raul Allegre....but neither of them were ever pro bowlers I dont think.....

</P>


YA, ok, remember it's the off-season. I apologize if I sounded confusing, but I meant that even if it concerns the off-season, all 3 of the players were with the Giants at some point in their careers. I will in a way give you the three answers or part of them.</P>


Kicker #1 - In 1990, the Giants drafted a kicker in the 12th round. That kicker didn't play, I think because he was injured, so he missed his entire rookie season. He then would move on to another team and would become a very consistent, and great kicker. He is a 83%+ kicker and he has the NFL record for most consecutive extra points made. All of this with the same team technically. </P>


Kicker #2 - In 1996 the Giants signed a kicker and he spent the 1996 season on the practice squad. He would then be released, and would end up on an AFC team, which is the team he is best known for, and when he went to his 1st and only Pro Bowl appearance. Right now he is on his 3rd team, 2nd NFC team. </P>


Punter - In 1997 this punter was a part of the team during training camp, but he didn't make it out of the pre-season. He went undrafted in 1993, but he was 1st signed by a CFL team in 1995, but that was the team's only season. Prior to the Giants he signed with another NFC team a year before. Ironically that would be the team he would return to and would earn a Pro Bowl appearance. </P>


Hope this helps everyone. </P>

its actually a really funny story...just read it in a book his daughter wrote...

you will appreciate this one Zimmy....

the Giants were playing the 49ers in a pre season game around the time the 9ers were trying to switch to the more mobile type quarterback....

..Tittle watched the first half from the sidelines then he was put in in the second half and noticed the Giants defense being strangely kind to him......

...notably Sam Huff.....after a hit where Tittle felt Sam was holding back Sam said "excuse me" picked him up and dusted him off...as Sam walked back to the defense over his shoulder he says "sorry YA"...

...naturally Tittle though this was very strange....the whole game it was like he could do anything and nobody would rush him.....

..coming off the field after the game Huff ran up to him and said "YA I want to be the first to congratulate you"
YA says "for what"

Sam says "you are a NY Giants and we are damn glad to have you."

Sam proceeded to tell him Allie Sherman had told the team before the game...anyone who lays a finger on him gets fined $100...........

...I thought that was a great story......

...how did YA Tittle find out he was traded to the Giants?
</p>


I'm thinking one of the Giant Players called him, but I just can't remember for sure</p>

its actually a really funny story...just read it in a book his daughter wrote...

you will appreciate this one Zimmy....

the Giants were playing the 49ers in a pre season game around the time the 9ers were trying to switch to the more mobile type quarterback....

..Tittle watched the first half from the sidelines then he was put in in the second half and noticed the Giants defense being strangely kind to him......

...notably Sam Huff.....after a hit where Tittle felt Sam was holding back Sam said "excuse me" picked him up and dusted him off...as Sam walked back to the defense over his shoulder he says "sorry YA"...

...naturally Tittle though this was very strange....the whole game it was like he could do anything and nobody would rush him.....

..coming off the field after the game Huff ran up to him and said "YA I want to be the first to congratulate you"
YA says "for what"

Sam says "you are a NY Giants and we are damn glad to have you."

Sam proceeded to tell him Allie Sherman had told the team before the game...anyone who lays a finger on him gets fined $100...........

...I thought that was a great story......

No doubt, cool story!

Very cool story. I know that I've read that before, but it had to be years ago cuz I couldn't remember. Recently I read that the Giants were initially very cool to YA because, of course, they had Conerly. Once they realized that YA was going to be the man, and Conerly at 38 was just too old,they accepted him. It still bums me that the Giants didn't win a Championship with YA. In '63, for sure,we were the better team, but the weatherwas bitter cold and icyand we couldn't get our passing game untracked

Pretty sure that was Ike Hilliard. 41-0. As Randy Moss said, 41 to doughnut. I sat there with my son in Giants Stadium and we couldn't stop smiling. So much promise for the SB, and then the Colts D just owned Collins.</P>

Ike Hilliard caught the 1st td pass. </P>


OK, so I will reveal the answers to my question. Matt Stover was one of them and zimonami got that right. The other kicker was Olindo Mare. The punter was Scott Player. Interesting stuff. </P>

Lol yea Zim was Hillard but was the Ravens not the Colts. Kerry played the whole second half of the Super Bowl with a separated shoulder. Not many people know that.

it just wasnt in the cards that day.....

I am glad to see Kerry doing well now.....for a while he was judged by that SB game and it was unfair.....

he was a much much better QB than Dilfer.....just couldnt get it done that day.......

Zimmy I always do the same thing.......I call the Ravens the Colts by accident.......the mind slips after 50....hahaha

Whoa... lol... yes, I pulled adim brainer. I'm picturing Ray Lewis in my brain, and then write Colts.</P>


And, wow, I am one of those who didn't know aboutKerry's shoulder. I'm sympathetic... I had a separated shoulder my HS senior year. I was QB, and couldn't play. But, I also knew that Kerry was poor at reading defenses. The Colts D confused him. The following year Fassel removed his audibling... because Kerry was likely to call an even worse play than was sent in, and mentally botched it several times. I liked him, thought he had great tools, but was slow learner. Watching him last year, I think his experience has made him better.</P>
