    Man oh man can I still remember those years too. Sends a cold chill down my spine. Let's hope we as Giant fans don't have to go through that stretch of years ever again right?

    Those years made me a better Giant fan...I lived and died with those teams as a kid....being the only Giant fan in our neighborhood........When I was 26 they finally won the big game......all those years of suffering finally seemed worth it............It is easy to be a fan when your team is winning....it is the fans that suffer through the bad years that truly measure your devotion
    "When I was 15, I could not believe how dumb my father was.....when I was 25, I could not believe how much he had learned in 10 years"

    1st to use the phrase "In Reese we trust"

      I grew up in the 50's expecting the NYG's to win the NFL Championship each & every year. Charlie Conerly, then YA were QB's had great defense & offensive stars. The came the mid 60's & it all went down the tubs. The 70's were awful too. Good grief has time flyed by. Go Giants Go don't turn back the hands of time @ least until my clock finally runs out. Kinda selfish I guess right?

        I may not know what that feeling is like, but I was born in 1988... I don't remember either of the Parcells-era super bowls. My first memory of QB was Dave Brown. Seeing Eli take down an otherwise-undefeated Patriots team made it feel worth it as well.

        I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

          I can't imagine how those years must have felt like.

          Much respect to the die hard fans that endured that stretch.


          Luckily I was just old enough to remember 86 and of course the 3 subsequent championships.


          Puts things in perspective.
