  • your're favorite non superbowl/championship giants season?

    mine was the 1997 season..Fassel's first year, picked last by everyone we went 10-5-1 and should have beat Minnesota in the playoffs...Loved Charles Way, Armstead had a big year and we won with Danny Kannel at quarterback.

    Duhon is absolutely correct... it was Aaron Thomas, in the NO end zone that had a 3 foot black border around the entire endzone, inside the lines., and inside of that was gold. All the black was in bounds. Aaron caught the short little pass on the left side, easily inside that 3 ft. black section, not even close to the OB line... there wasn't a Saints player near him... and the ref immediately called him OB, forgetting that Black was good.
    No replay.

    If you recall, after he signed that contract extension after SB 42, he really wasn't playing all that well the entire year leading up to him shooting himself.
    I remember many a post complaining about how it looked like Burress was dogging it after getting his money!
    yea but having the threat of him forced dbs to play off and not have as many in the box, him being gone not only effected the other recivevers it hurt the running game.

    good stuff, a season I recall where things broke bad in the final week was 1988, letting the jets ruin our season was bad..went from winning the division to being outsiders.

    I'll never forget how we ran for nearly 300 yards on the Ravens. Epic.

    1970 was my first die-hard season other highlights during the season include Howard Cosell blasted out his mind on Monday night football (Giants vs. Eagles) in a November game and Fran Tarkenton engineering three touchdowns in the last 5 or 10 minutes to beat the Redskins. The last game against the Rams
    (with Jerry Shay breaking his leg) put me in a funk for weeks.

    Great memories

    a fun fact about the 84 team is that they were outscored by their opponents in the regular season, just like last year..they were a good team in 84.

    82 was a strike season. There were only 9 games and we lost in a tie breaker to make the playoffs. 83 was a nightmare with Parcells first year. Really it was Parcells horrific decision to start Brunner out of fear of change. Phil outplayed Brunner in the pre season by a mile. Then when he finally put Phil in vs.Philly, Phil got his finger caught in Carl Hairstons facemask on a follow through, dislocated it and was out for the season. But in 84 we made the playoffs and beat the Rams in a playoff game. Phil threw for 4000 yards with no WR's. 85 we were a great team that lost a bunch of close games (still learning to win) In 86 we took essentially the same team as 85 to 14-2 and total domination of the league.
    But it was 81 that broke the ice. 81 was LT's first year. Its when we broke the long nightmare of no playoffs.

    For Giants fans my age who never saw a Giants playoff game, it was special.

    Completely agree. 1981 was a turning point in the fate of our beloved team.
    I misunderstood the question....i thought it was specifically ABOUT the year we went to the SB but didn't win it.
    Now that I understand the question...I have to agree 1000% with 1981.
    All my favorite Giants were just beginning what would become their amazing careers man...how could it not be!
    As we all sat in our living rooms on Sundays in 1981.... eating our pasta, chips, beer, whatever your sunday football meal was...we were about to be taken on a hell of a ride through that decade and we didn't even know it!
    Man...what I wouldn't give to be able to snap my fingers, and be back there on one of those Sundays... for just an hour....!!!

    Another team I liked was the 89 team, the flipper year and the worst PI call of all time imo...IMO the 89 was better than the 90 team, thought OJ was great that year, Simms was great...the 88 season and the 89 season is where I learned as a kid to hate the eagles, they like now always got the best of us then.
