  • Gutsiest Call in NYG History?

    I think the 1986 SB Punt formation shift on 4th and inches is the winner and will be the gutsiest NYG call ever. Just saw a clip of it on NFL Network. Man, that was ballsy. We're losing 10-9 at halftime. Our opening drive to start the 2nd half, Parcells calls it. They ran it vs Denver earlier in the yr, and they were not fooled at all during the SB. Rutiledge (sp?) didnt even know if he should run the play bc Denver adjusted to the formation shift so well and werent fooled at all, and looks at Parcells twice as to ask "we shouldnt do this right?" only for parcells to tell him yup do it by nodding his head, do it and it converted.
    That was the springboard for our 2nd half, and we put like 30 points up or something.Landetta credited that fake punt call for the 30 point spring board, but he was on that special teams unit so hes prob a lil biased, ha. Had we punted or failed at that conversion attempt, who knows how the game ends up. That call by Parcells was the shot in the arm that awoke the team...such a gutsy play call

    I've got a better one...

    Eli had THR entire Patriots D line hanging on his back...he stays on his feet somehow, escapes and makes a critical decision to heave the ball as far as he can down the middle of the field into double coverage to David Tyree who couldn't catch anything in practice the day before and wins the Super Bowl against a Tom Brady led 18-0 team. LEGENDARY!!!Greatest moment in Giant history...and I was there on the 30 yard line to see it live with my own eyes. LEGENDARY!!!

        That wasn't gutsy at all...it was a normal passing play.

              Im thinking the fake punt that was snapped directly to Gary Reasons in the 1990 NFCCG @ SF. That play netted like 35/40 yards and helped us best the niners and stop the 3peat. Awesome call by Parcells

              Football has been very, very good to us.
              After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
              But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

              # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

              1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
              2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
              3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
              4-New York Giants!!!
              5-NE
              Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                Eli's play was amazing - maybe greatest in our history but it wasn't a gutsy call at all. As fizzle stated it was just a normal passing play made abnormal by a special player.

                Parcells also made many conservative calls to punt and trust the d with very little time left and down in a game that were gutsy as well.

                    I know this thread is for the gutsiest calls but I have some other favorite PLAYS in history as well.


                    Bavaro dragging Ronnie Lott and Niner players trying to tackle him getting knocked off like bowling pins.

                    Ingram dragging like 8 players for a first down...

                    Marshall/Montana

                    Gary Reasons Huge hit at goal line on Humpries on 4th down. Came flying over the Line like Superman launching himself at the ball carrier. He had to other huge hits on that drive

                      Others have said this was not a ballsy call and it first glance it's not. I've watched and analyzed that play a billion times. The call itself was not gutsy but the execution was. Eli had Steve Smith open with good separation on a short slant and it would have been an easy first down. Eli even makes eye contact with him. Instead Eli chucks it down field to Tyree instead of taking the gimme. BALLS. I SO wish I could have been there, you fortunate ******* you!

                        Parcells was a coach who would absolutely put you to sleep as a fan against a weak oponent. He would take no risks and run both sides of the ball in totally vanilla fashion. As the oponent got tougher, Parcells would be more likely to push the envelope in all three phases of the game. That play in the Super Bowl was one of those moments.
                        No one remembers who came in second.

                          In terms of play-calling, one of the gutsiest calls in more modern history is that hail mary vs the packers. It was only the 2nd quarter, and we were ahead. It was more to break GB's will to play than to score points.

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

                            And it sure did break their spirit. Where were the Gilbride haters that day? Waiting for that pass to be picked so they could spam the boards is where they were.

                              well in fairness I don't think a Hail Mary at the end of a half is in the gutsiest calls category. Most teams do it at the end of the half. It's not a surprise to the defense. It just like put 4/5 guys in one spot and throw it as far as u can to end half. But yea. U usually see it when a team is behind, not ahead. Most of the time coaches that are ahead will take the conservative option and either kneel or just run into the line for fear of a turnover. But my point is when the defense sees your formation they know what's coming, it's not a surprise like the other plays mentioned on here
                              Football has been very, very good to us.
