I like the fact that you can count on me.as much as I loved Simms I am not sure I would call Him mount Rushmore worthy.....I really hope No one try's to say Eli at this point either....Taylor would almost have to be there unless someone wanted to argue about the off field stuff

So the QB who led us to our first SB, the guy who had the greatest SB any QB has ever had in NFL history, the guy who took us from 20 years as a laughing stock to NFL dominance doesn't qualify.

Seems wrong. But that's me.

W.Mara, L.T, B.Parcells, E.Manning
Not LT....he doesnt deserve the accolade based on his outside of football life. Just my opinon

Mara....thats the only one that gets 100% vote....

have to think about this one

First of all it should be guys who spent all or most of their career with the Giants.
Mr Mara, LT, Phil and.... the last guy is the question. Maybe TC. Maybe Strahan.
Its a toss up.

Its a toss up.Id say Carson over them but im guessing there are some older guys that are worthy that most of us are not real familiar with which is why id like to see YA weigh in

We've had his thread before also.

My Mt. Rushmore would be:

Lawrence Taylor
Frank Gifford
Emlen Tunnel
Mel Hein

Note: if Eli wins another ring before he hangs it up I would put him there over Gifford.

I'd pass on YA only because he spent a great deal of his career with other teams.

I'm talking about just players. If we were including ownership/front office then yes of course Wellington Mara would be there.

Oh.

Since the newer teams aren't dominant and still incomplete, I don't think any should be included.
I do think I guess that a rep from the 56 team should be there.

It's hard to pick between Eli and Simms, so I picked neither..

It's a series that PFT are doing: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/05/08/nominate-your-giants-mt-rushmore/ - they're doing one for every team.

Eli's career isn't done yet. So it's hard to say where he will end up. If he were to retire today I can't put him in the Mt. Rushmore. But If he continues putting up the numbers he's been putting up and maybe wins another ring in the next 6-7 years he would have broken every Giants QB records.

And I love Phill Simms. One of the greatest Giants QB of all time. But can anyone with a straight face and knowledge of the history of the Giants put him over Sam Huff, Emlen Tunnell, Mel Hein, Andy Robustelli, Harry Carson, Frank Gifford, Michael Strahan, etc.?

In Giants history.....yes I can.

Sam Huff HATES the Giants. It would be ridiculous to include him.

And Simms? really? The QB who went TD-less in 6 out of 10 playoff starts?

Might as well include Hostetler if you're going to include Simms

I love Hostetler. He didn't screw up in the 1990 playoffs like Simms did in 1989.

We might not have won SB 25 without him.
