    I was a young but one of my fav memories ever honestly was in the 1993 season Finale against Dallas..the game was for the division and home field through out, doesn't get much bigger, and LT had a Sack late in the game, and he got about a 5 min standing ovation from the fans, kind of a thanks for everything...Best fans in football imo, and LT was the best defensive player off all time imo.

            Lawrence Taylor was the best player I have ever seen. As you can tell from my avatar and signature I'm a huge LT fan. He redefined the position, changed the way NFL offenses game planned defenses. He could win a game on his own from a defensive position. This franchise’s fan base had the privilege to be able to say we had one of the best players EVER to play the game on our team.

            Giants fan since the early 80s

                When the Giants lose because of bad offense, it bums me out.

                When the Giants lose because of bad defense, it makes me sick.

                It's something that is genetic in Giants fans.....it's passed down from father to son. I remember as a little kid when the crowd chanted DE-fense!!!!.....my old man would crank up the TV.....my mom would have a frown on her face, but it didn't matter.....it was Sunday afternoon, and the Giants were on.

                I'd love it if the Giants had the horses to go back to a 3-4..... I'll take an All-Pro Linebacker over an All-Pro Defensive End any day of the week.
                I'm all for big defense, but why the 3-4? We were able to get it done last year with JPP and pre-decline Tuck. Maybe i'm unable to get nostalgic at the 1980s because my first memories of the Giants were in 1994 when i was 6 years old, but I still love seeing the big plays no matter who makes them.

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

                  I think linebackers are more versatile, and I like the flexibility the 3-4 gives with respect to rushing the passer, stopping the run, and taking away short underneath routes.

                  I think a 4-3 is much more of a feast or famine alignment.

                  Again, that's just my opinion.....and alot of it is colored by watching guys like Van Pelt, Kelly, Carson, Taylor, Banks, and Reasons just destroy offenses.

                  Back in the day, teams simply could not run on the Giants. Seriously, they couldn't. And they had a hard time passing against them as well. Watching that defense was truly a pleasure.

                  But I understand the Giants couldn't go 3-4 with the players they have now....it would require a big retooling, and that's not in the cards.

                    Different time; different rules.

                    He'd adapt and dominate any era in which he played.

                    Great video, thanks Rosie
