    1993. After watching Parcells abandon the team and having dismal 8-8 and 6-10 seasons, Reeves restored respectability to the franchise... Great mix of veterans like LT and Simms along with new blood like Strahan and a still young Rodney Hampton. Went toe-to-toe with the defending champ and eventual champ that year Cowboys and all the marbles in the last game of the season, an epic game that we lost. Despite how it ended in SF it was a hell of a ride. I felt that was the ending the 1990 team deserved.

      LOL... I wish I was that good every year, unfortunately my SB usually aren't that good. Besides, then at least half the Giants fans would hate me
      My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

        my absolute favorite Giant season outside of the Superbowl years

        a rough and tumble rag tag bunch that fought tooth and nail every single Sunday

        very little talent and more heart than a jungle full of lions

        Big Red had those guys fighting harder than any Giant team I have seen before or since

        that was a dangerous team that just missed the playoff by the skin of their teeth

        they would have been dangerous in the playoffs
        i loved that season as well. we lost the first three games including that ridiculous call where Ernie Coy was IN BOUNDS, week three. Then ripped off 6 straight. But that season ended horribly with the Rams debacle.

        My favorite was definitely 1981. My first playoff appearance for my team. I started when I was 8 as a Giants fan and I was 22 with my first playoff game. And we beat Philly with a huge first half, then losing to SF the next week.
        These young fans have no idea what we went through as Giants fans.

          Well I'd suck as a commentator too, I'd pick the Giants to win every year and would talk crap about the Eagles and Cowboys all day..

            Will you guys stop with that "young people don't know what it's like" bullcrap? Because honestly it's insulting to me, someone raised from birth as a Giants fan, and whose first memory of the Giants was Dave Brown (I was born in 1988, and was 6 years old at the time). I had to wait 13 years myself for a super bowl title. So STOP attacking me because I "don't know what it's like".

            If I complain about our current team's problems, it's because I know we don't have Eli forever, and another Dave Brown is likely waiting in the wings. This is the greatest era of Giants history we're living in, and I for one don't want it to go to waste...

              A tad defensive are we?
              Who was referring to you? I barely recognize your screen name.

              You say you had to wait 13 years foe a SB?. I was 22 when we had our first playoff appearance. I'm not comparing anyone's fandom. I 'm only saying that very few fans can relate to having no playoff appearances for their entire childhood and into adulthood. Its a tough ride, and a lot of my friends who were Giants fans became Cowboys, Steelers or Raider fans.

                I was born in 88. I don't remember much until the later 90s, I'd probably say 2000. I also remember when we upset the Broncos in 1999 I believe. 08 was great because we looked great until the Burress incident

                  I still think about that play and get pissed off

                  I think that single play created league standards on endzone paint

                    1985 season. They lost to the Bears in the playoffs. But the season was exciting as Sims had his best passing year.

                      2007. I'm old enough to have been following the first 2, but the 2007 came so out of the blue and against the undefeated Patriots, it was special.

                        oopsie - misread the title of the post. Non superbowl year, I'd go with 1985 as that's when I started following the team.

                          Not sure what happened to my post; I must not have saved it.

                          Anyway, my favorite non-SB season was 1981. Joe Danelo hit the game winning kick in OT against the Dallas Cowboys, which put the Giants into the playoffs for the first time in 18 seasons.

                          I was just a kid at the time, and this was the first year that the Giants had been to the playoffs in my entire life.....so it was a huge deal.

                          And it marked the end of the Dark Ages for the Giants, and the beginning of their run as one of the dominant teams of the 1980's.

                            You're always thumbing your nose at anyone under the age of 40 as though they're not real Giants fans or something... I'm not some bandwagon jumper that became a Giants fan in 2008, or 2000, or 1997 for that matter...

                                2000 when we went to the superbowl and lost to the Ravens.

                                We only lost 1 divisional game that year and then beat the Eagles in the divisional round, smoked the Vikings in the Conference round but then got smoked in the Superbowl by the Ravens..
                                This is mine too, the highest of highs after that Vikings beat down, seeing LT and the other retired Giants was the cherry on top.
