I didn't agree with Tiki over Hampton until they flashed the numbers. Afterall, its not a popularity contest.

If you don't know them all by their photos you have some work to do.

Burress really does not deserve to be that high on the list.

Nicks > Burress

Burress in his four seasons with the giants put up 3,681 yards and 33 TDs.

Nicks in four seasons put up 3,726 yards and 27 TDs.


In the postseason

Burress put up 310 yards and 3 TDs
Nicks put up 444 yards and 4 TDs. (in one less game, as well)

Burress was our offensive MVP in 2007. He was a game changer.

Also I think Eli will be rated higher if they redid this list... this was done in 2011, before Eli got his second SB MVP.

Nicks is a bigger game changer than Burress ever was. Hes a far superior player. Just compare catch rate.

I dont know why people still bring up how Burress beat up GB in the playoffs, yet Nicks put up more yards and TDs against them and everyone ignores it.

Nicks doesn't get nearly enough credit.

Love him or hate, Tiki is the best RB the Giants have ever had, at least since Gifford. He was an excellent rusher, excellent at receiving the ball, and excellent at pass protection.

Decent list, although 10 years from now Eli has a good chance at being 1 or 2.
