Carson, Marshall, Lockhart, Robustelli, Toomer, Tiki(yes, I said it),

Thats just off the top of my head. Lots more can be added with some more thought

Not only one of the greatest NY Giants, but probably one of the most important people of the 20th century.

Him and obviously LT...I caught the very tail end of Taylor's career, infact one of my first football memories was an LT strip sack on the Bears. I remember the announcer saying something like "He had now had a sack against every team in the NFL."

Alot of great football plays have come and gone out of my memory, but for whatever reason that one managed to stick....Just watching old clips of Taylor though I can firmly say that the NFL has notseen anyone with his combination of speed, power and quickness since he retired. Watching him rush the QB is alot like watching a Lion take down his prey

I was lucky enough to watch his entire career, and you are correct.....I haven't seen a defensive player match LT. Sure, on any given day, I've seen defensive players have a lights-out game.....but nobody ever player with such intensity, so consistently, and for as long as LT.

John Mendenhall is a must the D-line. But Sean Landeta wasn't our kicker, he was our punter. :)

anyone who does not have Joe Morrison as their FB/HB is out of their mind

he is possibly the most important Giant of all time
