Hey, YA... how has your back been??

been ok

it was fine for about 9 months ...then had a few problems and had to go in and have another procedure

tried again to deal with it through therapy but it wouldnt budge

everything is cool now though

lots of stretches and Yoga and a little morning soreness ....nothing I can't deal with

it did bother me a bit though in the stadium seats on Wed. night

My fingers crossed for ya'
Stretches, yoga, walking... stomach muscles make the whole core strong.
Since the last of my 3 ops (2 posts and 6 screws) I've had 10 spinal injections... they work good.
Stay active... take care of yourself.

I think you need to throw Charlie Conerly in there and you have the 4 greatest Giant QB's.

absolutely

and it is indeed because of that day

until that day I spent every game day listening to the game on the radio with my mom and my brother while dad and my uncle Mike were at the games ....we didn't have a television

I remember hearing his name over and over during the game broadcast and I knew he wore 14.....but that was pretty much the extent of it

to finally see the guy at work in person and witness a record setting day like that had a very profound impact on my 9 year old brain

he threw 7 TDs that day ........I thought he was the greatest player to ever suit up when I was a kid

YA was very ahead of his time and could have absolutely played at a very high level in todays NFL

I remember I had a blue long sleeve shirt that just happened to have a #14 on it......wasn't a giants shirt or anything ...just a random shirt

every single day after school I would put that shirt on ......go out in the courtyard and draw two football players on the brick of the building with chalk ( this is in the Bronx) and I would draw an 85 on one and 45 on the other for Shofner and Jones........then I would drop back and throw the football at these chalk drawings for hours until the sun went down

So true, YA. Give us a handball court and there were several different games you could play. Every wall facing some open spaces had a strike zone chalked onto it. We even had a handball/baseball game that we played, with a tennis ball or pinky, on half a basketball court.
You could set boundaries for a 2 hand touch game or a stickball game nearly anyplace that cars weren't zipping by. If we played on dirt instead of concrete it usually became flag/tackle

I remember the endless whiffle ball games. Our wiffle balls were usually patched together with black electical tape. No lack of fun or imagination in my neighborhood in Newark back in the day..............and I never ever had the thought "I'm bored" creep into my consciousness.

My best memories though were when it snowed more than 10 inches or so, we'd play tackle football right out in the street with a sort of helmet thing and not much else.

jomo- I can't tell you how happy I was that we didn't have computers as kids.
Rain, snow, cold, heat... it didn't matter, we were outside finding some game to play.
Like the two kids at the beginning of "Big"... a stickball bat and a ball, and a bike to share to get you there.
Recess and lunch time and you didn't waste a minute choosing sides and getting something started.
Even worst case, you and a buddy and a ball, and 2 sidewalk slabs separating you, with a popsicle stick in the middle.

you guys have my mind going now

back in the Bronx only one of our friends Mickey had a bike......so we would fit four of us on one bike

one guy on the seat
one guy sitting sideways on the frame
usually me on the handle bars
and Mickey the Ox standing on the pedals pumping

what made me think of that is when you mentioned the stick ball bat .....one of us always had a bat or a stick and a pocket full of knucklebones
I almost always had a transistor radio on me listening to the Yankees in the summer

How about stoop ball where you threw the ball into your front steps and depending on where it landed, you could have a single double triple or home run unless your oponent caught it first?

YES... stoop ball.
Ring Alevio; Keep Away; Free for All. We played a lot of 1 wall handball, and punchball, which was like baseball

How about box baseball? Using three sidewalk boxes...or saluggi? Or knockouts off the backboard in the schoolyard? Or catch a fly's up?

Senseless and stupid and somehow nobody got hurt.When we were short on players we'd have baseball games where you had to go to the oposite field. There's be a first baseman but as a lefty hitter, if I didn't shoot it left of second base on the ground or in the air, I was out automatically. We learned bat control that way.

And if you had an uneven amount of guys you would bat and then play the field for the other team.

In football, I made a career out of padding my stats as an "official quarterback.". Throwing for both teams.

Avery satisfying win, on many levels.
When all the pundits had us losing.
An excellent game by the OLine. I am eating my words on them... thankfully.
Bradshaw, tough as nails.
Wilson, great burst into the hole.
Nicks and Cruz... the best WR's I have ever seen on the Giants. A pleasure to watch. Hixon wasn't too shabby today, either.
Nice job by the D.
The DB's actually looked like they're learning the zone... but, still some holes. Rolle and Prince were good
There's a thread about Blackburn on here that frosts my ***. Like he was supposed to cover that WR last weeek... he took a bad angle. He's too slow. He missed a lot of tackles.
Yes, he missed a few. When we get better, he'll be out there.
For now, shut up and appreciate what we've got.
Williams had a good game.
The D line was constant pressure. Tuck and Osi aren'y getting the marquee sacks... but they keep their feet and put on constant pressure.

Coaches prepared them well.

I hope this shuts up a lot of people.

The Asian for head coach thread is a good one to use on Gameday when these boards get crazy with people picking apart every play and calling for someone to be fired. There are a lot of good people who post on there that know their stuff when it comes to the Giants, alot of the same people who post on the DYK, post there.

I remember that game well, it was a couple days before christmas, on a saturday...Eli was having a rough go up until that game..he was game that day and they almost upset pittsburg, who ended up 15-1 that year...I knew after that game that Eli was going to be very good.

It can't be that our record against Dallas is last years 74 yd. Eli to Cruzzz??
Over 50 years against them and that's it?
I knew the Morrall to Homer pass of 98 yds aginst the steelers. That question has been on here a few times and it was also mentioned when Eli to Cruz got the 99 yarder last year. But I thought Homer also burned Dallas for a 90-93 yarder.

Hi! Sorry for the wait. I was giving other board members a try at it.

Giants-Cowboys: Longest plays in franchise history against each other. Both breaking triple digit yardarge and the same type of play.

Giants: Erich Barnes 102 yard interception return against the Cowboys. October 15, 1961. The Giants had Y.A. Tittle, Pat Summerall, Joe Morrison, Sam Huff, and Alex Webster that year.

Cowboys: More recent. Bryan McCann 101 yard interception return off Eli Manning. November 14, 2010. This was the infamous game where the lights went out at MetLife Stadium during the game and the stadium went dark.

Here's Wiki... Erich (pronounced Ee-Rich) Theodore Barnes (born July 4, 1935) was an American football (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/American_football) defensive back (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/Defensive_back) in the National Football League (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/National_Football_League). He was a six-time Pro Bowler (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/Pro_Bowls). Before the NFL, he was an outstanding all-around athlete at Purdue University (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/Purdue_University) (1956–58). Barnes was drafted (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/NFL_draft) fourth by the Bears (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/Chicago_Bears) in the 1958 NFL Draft (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/1958_NFL_Draft) and traded to the Giants (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/New_York_Giants) in 1961. He tied an NFL record in his first season with the Giants by intercepting a pass against the Cowboys (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/Dallas_Cowboys) and returning it 102 yards for a touchdown (http://boards.giants.com/wiki/Touchdown).

I doubt that Marty Glickman mispronounced 'Erich'; he was one of the most professional radio announcers of all time. It was probably Chris Schenkel. He was somewhat gaffe-prone. For instance, he often referred to Alex Webster as 'Alec'.

I don't like to butt heads with Wikipedia, but they're not always correct. I still think it was against the Eagles in '62. I remember the play very well. Erich caught the ball in the corner of the end zone and ran it out along the far sideline, from right to left, from the point of view of the TV screen. He stayed on the sideline until he reached the goal line. Giants' home games were blacked out in those days, so it had to be a road game. I may be hallucinating, but my mind's eye sees Philadelphia, not Dallas.

YA hasn't confirmed... I could have 1 or 2 wrong.
The Washington victory in the wind was one og our all-time thrills, although my goal that post season was to beat Chicago... payback for '85.

Happy Thanksgiving, Key... and a Happy Thanksgiving to all you DYKites.

He kicked around with KC, then NFL Europe and Canadian ball before kicking for KC in 04, 05, and 06, and then came to us in 07... so, he's been around the block.
And, I'm no freakin genius. I knew Tynes was our oldest player, so I looked him up and he grew up in FL, like in your clue.

Maybe my memory is misfiring again, but I thought Patton's 98-yard kickoff return was in 1953, not '55. As I recall, the Skins were leading the division at 4-0. We won because Emlen the Gremlin intercepted a Skins' pass in the end zone; Patton ran back a punt for a TD in addition to the kickoff; and Alex Webster slithered on his belly through the mud from the 5-yard line for another score (those were the days when a runner was not considered down until his forward progress was stopped -- crawling was allowed, and piling on was therefore normal.

Even more amazing, you actually saw the game.
My sources are saying it's 1955. You're correct with the kickoff TD and punt return TD in the same game and he's the first player NFL in history to do that. His 98 yard kickoff return for a TD is the longest in Giants history by 1 yard over Ron Dixon's two 97-yard kickoff returns in the 2000 season playoffs. He's No. 33 of the 50 Greatest Giants in franchise history as per ESPN and is second in interceptions in franchise history with 52. His life was tragically cut short due to a car accident.

even though the team was not great ...those were great times to be a fan
a few of those guys could have been very special if not for injuries .



Keith Hamilton played for how many head coaches in the NFL?

...and which one moved him from DE to DT ?

yes Reeves moved him to DT after a couple less productive seasons at DE

yes 3 head coaches ...and those are the correct 3

@ key.....Nolan was the DC at the time

I went to check on that game and found name of INT guy, but won't spill it since I looked. I wanted to see what the heck happened. Total yards 194 and only 41 rushing. Hampton had only 12! The week before he had 161 vs Vikes. I don't remember...was he injured during game? He had only 7 carries.

That game still makes me sick thinking of it. That was the last game for LT and Phil Simms.
Speaking of that game, what did LT ask for at the end of the game?

Good guesses, byron. The big guy in back, left is my son. All the other guesses are correct. Brought him to his 1st game at the new stadium in '76 when he was 8. He has been as large as 425 lbs. (yeah, I know). His HS coach hated him because he had 'slow feet'. He'd go on and on about how slow David's feet were. Yep, he was 280 as a senior and there were 220# DL's that would zip right by him... Woulda kinda reminded you of current day Diehl... lol.
Yes, Banks was our last #1 in '84. We took Kanavis McGee #2 in '92, and the only other #1 or #2 was Sintim in '09. Kanavis wasn't exactly a household name, and Sintim has been just as invisible. I'd sure love another worthy #1, although I know we have more needs at other positions... but, what does it say about us that we have totally average LB's, yet we need help more at other positions? OL, DL, and DB's are all hurting for quality starters and depth. I guess we could live with our current average LB's for awhile.

A "Made" thread? LMAO... yeah, YA has quietly enabled DYK to survive on life support. Otherwise we never would have made it to 1,249 pages.
It has been too quiet for some time, but every once in a while we feed the old man viagra and DYK perks up... like today.
RBCarpenter hasn't been on in over a year because he says his computer is stuck on his old credentials, which GMB's doesn't recognize. Says he can't create a new ID. Sounds crazy. I'll tell him to try again.

That '93 loss was brutal. I disliked Ricky Watters in the same way I hated T.O.
What did LT ask for after his last game? Wow, good question. The answer is buried in a dungeon in my brain.
