Those years with Giff, Dandy Don, and Cosell were great with Don constantly tossing out incredibly subtle digs at Howard that passed right over his head. meanwhile, you could just tell Giff wanted to bust out laughing, but he couldn't.

I played against him in HS. He was a QB then, I tried to sack him and my facemask broke right off my helmet, he threw it away, incomplete, no sack, and me with a nasty headache and broken helmet....and nose.

He was a QB then, I tried to sack him and my facemask broke right off my helmet, he threw it away, incomplete, no sack, and me with a nasty headache and broken helmet....and nose. Never forgave him until I found out he was going pro. Then I found out he couldn't make it and nowI can't ever forgive the *******.</P>

Was it one of the Tice brothers? They were QBs in high school I think</P>

No I don't hate him. I'm just pissed that some bum that couldn't even makean NFL roster his rookie yearmade me look stupid on the field years earlier....AND he brokeded my nose. At least the story would be better if 1) I succeeded in sacking him, AND 2) he made it big and was still playing AND 3) he was in the HOF by the time my grandkids could hear about it....AND most importantly 4) if he didn't brokeded my ****ing nose.</P>


However, it doesgo to show how good even the busts of the NFLare. Or at least how much better than the rest of us they are.</P>

1970, Gmen at New Orleans. 4th Qtr and Gmen losing 14-10. 4th and Goal. Tarkenton throws a TD pass to a wide open Bob Tucker... he is standing in the end zone, at least 2 feet from OB. He stands there andflips the ball to the ref... Except the Ref calls no TD, and we lose 14-10. There were no penalties on the play.</P>

Very sorry, peoples, I've been away.</P>


Inside the white lines that frame the end zone was painted black...3 foot wide total black swath all around the inside border of the end zone. Inside of that the rest of the end zone was gold with the Saints logo in the center.</P>


Tucker was standing in the black, 2 feet away from the white OB line. Mind you, he was standing, not moving when he caught the pass. TD!! He turns around and flips the ball to the ref, not realizing that the second he caught it the ref signalled Out of Bounds. The ref forgot that the black was part of the end zone... he saw it as OB.The Giants started to run off the field so the extra point team could come on. Meanwhile, the Saints Offense runs on the field. The refs spot the ball at the previous spot and tell the Gmen to get their defense on the field because Tucker was OB. It was toooo late, the call was made and no other ref tried to correct it... just went with the call and demanded the Giant defense come out. Instead of winning 17-14, we lose 14-10.</P>


That couldn't happen again, and the Saints end zone was never painted that way again.</P>

Simms once said that he couldn't remember any plays... you just had to tell him he was running left, or running right, and he couldn't learn the blitz pickups or audibles.

He was throwing to some of the best receivers of the time as well, Shoftner, Gifford, Rote</p>
that day Morrison caught 2
Walton caught 3
Gifford caught 1
Shofner caught 1

what a day
what a team
what a season

Guys- lately, i have been reading up on 1950s and early 60s Giants teams..</P>


Seems you guys were the team to beat in the late 50s..</P>


Other than championship losses, you guys had quite the run there...</P>


If the 58 championship achieved what is widely believed, I guess i owe a bunch to the G-men....and Colts..lol.</P>


Really impressed with Rosie Brown story....Arguably the best lineman to play the game..Behind Hannah of coarse..lol.</P>

Those were the days my friend.
my brain is full of useless knowledge from those day.

those guys really put the sport of pro football on the map.
nobody really cared until the late 50s.

did you know that YA tittie once threw for 500 yards in one game in an era it was ok to rip his head off?


yup
that was the first Giant game I ever attended.
Yankee Stadium Oct. 28 1962.
he also threw 7 touchdowns that day.
he was also injured that day and started the game terribly.

could have thrown 10 but they kept the ball on the ground.


my god that must have been amazing. I believe its an Nfl record. and for the time period its really amazing. today the rules are more pass freindly and still qb's here struggle to throw 200 yards per game.
For the time period not amazing at all.</P>

We got WR Bobby Crespino who played 4-5 yrs with us as a 3rd or 4th receiver... he never did much. Mo was a fan favorite and they were pissed, along with the players, at Sherman as he decimated our D. My aunt, who socialized with several of the offensive line, said the team hated Sherman. He was an X and O guy who Mara was impressed with, so we let Lombardi and Landry go. That might be one of the fans biggest gripes over the years with Mara... they loved him but they were pissed at him giving Sherman the job.</P>

Mo has a great quote in the book "the Glory Game". Frank Giffords book. (which is an amazing book by the way)

"The Giants are where my heart has always been. I wish someone had this picture of a moment I'll never forget. A moment that says it all about the giants: I'm playing with the Browns, against the Redskin, and Sam and I are walking off the field together, and both of us are looking up at the scoreboard to see how the Giants did that day. Not because we wanted them to lose. Because we wanted them to win."


Mo and Huff both got the call that they were traded at the same place but at different times.
what place was that?

yes most of those schemes and plays he was running with Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung were built with Gifford and Webster running them.
Lombardis heart was always with the Giants and did everything he could to get out of his contract with the Packers when he heard Jim Lee Howell was retiring from the Giants but he couldn't get out and we got stuck with Allie Sherman who destroyed the team from the inside in years to come.
who knows what could have been with Lombardi as coach in the 60s. He would have never got rid of Huff and Modelewski and all those guys like Sherman did saying they were "getting old"

I may have worded the question in a confusing way.....
both Huff and Mo were at Modzelewskis' restaurant in Cleveland when they received the phone call that they were traded from the Giants. quite a few months apart though I believe.

LT was making a big name for himself in his rookie year. Another rookie QB, starting for his team,came to Giant Stadium to play the Giants. On his first play from scrimmage he stood over center, looked to his left, and saw LT lined up outside his Left tackle, ready to come. The rookie QB realized no one was assigned to block him and, with genuine fear in his eyes (I saw it. Lt was in a line between the QB and me.) he stood and called Timeout and ran to the sidelines for another play. Who was that scared rookie QB?</P>

The rookie QB realized no one was assigned to block him and, with genuine fear in his eyes (I saw it. Lt was in a line between the QB and me.) he stood and called Timeout and ran to the sidelines for another play. Who was that scared rookie QB?</P>




just a guess..
Neil Lomax?

Chuck Mercein only broke 100 yards rushing in one season of his career.
what season was it?
</P>


I'll guess 1963.</P>


No kidding, YA, I sit at the 37 yd line, 19 rows up. At the angle I was on, LT was directly between Lomax and me. I could see true fear when he saw LT up on the line, the red light on his helmet was revving, and Lomax near craopped in his pants when he looked left. LT owned him that whole game.</P>




1966

thats awesome.
did Lomax play the whole game?
I was at lots of games where LT owned Jaworski all day.
he was frightening in those days.
Ron never looked scared though he just looked like he had no clue LT was coming
poor Ron took so many beatings.
</P>


I can't remember if Lomax finished the game. I remember we crushed them that day. LT sacked Lomax 2X and hit him probaly 6 other times as he was releasing the ball. LT was jabbering at him non-stop. It was funny, but I think it also was bad for Lomax's confidance. That was a year ('81) they didn't count sacks.</P>

no. actually the only other player out of Texas Southern drafted in '63 was Winston Hill to the Colts in the eleventh round.

I was probably 13 and remember it well.
my life revolved around the Giants at the time.
I remember hating Gray Wood because the news papers were saying he was going to take Tittles job.
I didn't know at the time that it was Allie trading away the players and running the team into the ground.
I soon learned and also learned to hate him.

He was what excited me about football.
he had very few bad games.
the Giants didn't have much Defense at times
but Tittle always put up the points and was great to watch.


</P>


TY for the John Baker info, YA. I couldn't remember his name, but I'll never forget the brutal hit. I was 18 then, and screaming my asp off for someone on the Giants to get even. That was a bad, sad day, and a bad, sad year... started the slide that we'll never forget, and every year I hated Allie more and more for ruining our once proud franchise.</P>


Thanks a lot guys I was 13 at the time and through it was pretty muchput end of his career. It was sad they put the camera on him at some point in the game and it has stuck with me all these years. Another one is the gifford hit and injury its all i remember of the game and being very sad when it happened. Lot of bad years for sure I remember having hope when Ray Perkins took over , and then he left after one or two years not sure, but i remember being pissed about it.Through the years there were somegreat players i think my favorite was Homer Jones in those day the deep pass was called the bomb. Anywayguys thanksfor helping an old guyremember, ya know as bad as the giants were back then I still loved watching them as I do today. These are good times for sure. </P>

YA or anyone I posted this Q in another thread should have posted here anyway. Ihavean early memory of Tittle all I remember was that he took a beating in the gameand had a bloodyface about all I remember . I tryed research the famouspic of him with blood on his face but could not find a date of when the pic was taken. Any way I am 56 I been watching the giantsas long ascan remember. Just wonderwhat you know of the pic or the game. thanks</p>

I'm pretty sure that was '64... Tittle's last year, in a home game against Pittsburgh. We were crushed, and Tittle was crushed. Those were the days when someone could hit the QB long after he released the ball. Tittle was being brutalized the whole game... picking himself up and barely making it back to the huddle, or to the sidelines. He'd wipe off the blood andslowly trotback in for another series. I don't think he finished the game... I think Gary Woods came in for him. It was sad to see... the old, balding warrior with more guts than you'll ever find.</p>



the man speaks the truth
John Baker Pittsburgh D end came in and blind sided ole Y.A.
that pretty much ended his career.

yeah I think Perkins gave us all a little hope after all those dismal years.
he was there from 79 through 82.
to me he was the first guy with a little fight in him since Webster.
Alex Webster as much as I love the man who hales from my home state of NJ just a few towns away from me, I never felt like he was ready to be a head coach.
Looking back it seems that everyone between Jim Lee Howell and Bill Parcells was just Wellington filling a Void he hoped Vince Lombardi would be filling.

I've replied to this 2X and it hasn't posted.</p>


Mr. **** Lynch... our great Color man until last year, may he R.I.P. He was the reason so many fans in the stands were glued to their radios.</p>


Who played in the D Backfield with him, and later became a head coach?</p>


I hate to say it, but sometimes I think Allie decimated our team on purpose... because the players and fans disliked him so much... kinda like, "I'll show you"</p>
D1ck Nolan.

i really loved D!ck Lynch as a player as well as a broadcaster.
a true Giant until his untimely passing.
I actually got teary at the game after his death when they had a beautiful Lynch tribute.
he was one of the greatest D backs we ever will have.

as for Allie I can't imagine another reason why he would make some of the trades that he made besides sabotage.
I mean......Sam Huff, Modzelewski, Livingston, Grier....come on!!!!
its like he wanted the legend of Landry &amp; Lombardi to die and the Sherman era to begin.



who was the first "no look" Center who spent his whole 10 year career with the New York Football Giants?

zimonami
03-20-2009, 04:33 PM
Yeah, Nolan... easy one for you.</P>


I would have thought Mel Hein would have started "No Look", but he played 14-15 years for us. Then, there was Ray Weitecha who played around 10 yrs for us. After him was Greg Larson, but I think he played more than 10 yrs... so it has to be Weitecha.</P>


It made me think, along with those 3 Centers, we've also had Oates and O'Hara... pretty danged good company. Heck, I even liked Jim Clack and Brian Williams. </P>


Since Hein, Larson and Weitecha all played 10+ years, and Oates had a long run (8-9 yrs), O'Hara not as long (5 so far)... But, throw in Clack, Williams, Hyland (forget his first name... Brian Hyland sticks in my brain, but he was the Itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini singer! lol), Ron Stone... who else? Anyways, since Hein started we've probably had the fewest number of starting Centers for any pro team. O'Hara has some good years left. Hope we get a good one to replace him.</P>

yup it was Weitecha.
the first center to not have to look between his legs to snap.
made him very valuable.
most centers soon followed.

wow never really thought about all the great centers we have had.
pretty solid at that position always.
you just never hear about it.

it's like they say.....the only people to appreciate an offensive lineman is his quarterback and his mother. hahaha

Before being traded to the Giants, this wide receiver did double duty with the Rams... as a reciver and as their punter. He carried a 42 ypg punting average for 3 yrs with the Rams, but never punted for the Giants.

I had a bad memory today, and was disappointed when I looked it up...I thought YA threw 5 TDs to Shofner in a game, His name wasn't in the record books for players with 5... so, I guess it was 4? Tell me... I'm sure you will know</P>

I know he caught 3 TDs quite a few times.
not completely sure about a 4 TD game though.

What WR spent one full season with Big Blue in 1970 and caught 50 balls that year?

03-21-2009, 01:53 AM
Yes, Byron Hunt.</P>


For jersey numbers... go up top to History, then click on 1960-2002 stats, scores, rosters, and you can scroll down to any jersey number for that years starters. I've gone to this site hundreds of times over the years to reacquaint myself with Giant info from the good old days.</P>


I just looked up Clifton McNeil... No. 18. Geez, I still can't remember him playing for us... only Cleveland.</P>


But while I was there I reviewed out starter for the year '70... some names always jump out at me that I forget over the years... Lurtsema, Jim Files, Willie Williams... I haven't thought about those guys for years. Also noticed a very strange thing for 1970... we split with Dallas and Philly, and we beat St. Louis2 times... BUT, we only played Washington one time that year... WHY? I'm sure there was a reason that was in the papers that year, but I can't remember, and can't imagine why.</P>


Also noticed the dreaded 6 preseason games. What a drag. It wasn't until 1978 that we went to 4 preseason games and 16 regular season. I didn't remember that. I would have guessed that the 4/16 game schedule started in '75-'76. What I will never forget is 1973. We were 6-0 in preseason. Expectations were high. I was thinking, "Cool, we're gonna kick butt this year." Then we went 2-11-1. Ever since that reality check I have never cared whether or not we won in preseason. I go to those games strictly to see our new rookies, FA's, and depth. I sit there praying no one will get injured.</P>

we played Washington twice in 1970.
won both close games.

I must be blind... and dumb. I swear I looked carefully at the 1970 schedule yesterday and only saw (1) Washington game. Then I counted to make sure... yep, 14 games, but only one Wash. I just went back there now and immediately saw (2) Washington games.... duh!!! I don't know, I'm 62 and I guess I'm losing my cookies.</P>


Yeah, I love to see those names, like Files, Lurtsema, and it's like "Yeah, I remember that guy." After you brought up the "no look" center and it had to be Weitecha because I knew Hein and Larson played longer than 10 years, I looked up Hein to see exactly how many years... 15. Next I'm going to see if we ever had a player for more than 15 years. Do you know the record for most years with the Gmen? If not, I'll let you know.</P>


You would have loved my aunt Jean who started our season tix in '43 (might have been '41 or '42, but she's dead now, so I can't ask her)... she was a walking encycolpedia of Giant players and facts and used to tell me all about the players of the 40's and 50's that I didn't see. She was the one who told me that this Giant was known as "Offense on Defense"... who was it? Prob an easy one for you.</P>

Yes, they have come to my attention, c/o my aunt,since the stadium opened in '76. I lived in NJ then, and am in the Poconos now. Because we can't change that, we can never get tix that have to be picked up at the Box Office, like for a SB. But, we did get the tix for SB 25 in Tampa... she was still alive then. Now, there are no direct relatives left as she never married and had children.

We had Czonka, Kotar, and Booby Hammond as our three main rushers for about 3 years in the late 70's. I always loved Kotar, and I'm pretty sure he was our leading rusher one year, so I'll choose Doug Kotar.
