  • The 1997 Giants

    I hear alot how underrated they were. Were they one of those under the radar teams that could have went all the way? Would they have provided a threat to the Packers and Broncos that year had they went all the way? I really believe the Vikings did us a favor that year otherwise I think we might not have made the super bowl even though we lost in the big game anyway. What do you guys think? Were the Giants good enough that year to be like the 07 or 11 Giants.

      I was 8 myself when they first made it back to the playoffs. The fact that Fassel made a team with Danny Kanell on it a playoff team was impressive to say the least. That's kinda how the Falcons are now and the Niners with Smith... mediocre QB surrounded with a huge amount of talent.

          I loved the 1997 team and I was only 13 years old. It was sad that they blew it against the Vikings in the playoffs because they were fighting on the sidelines. We eventually lost it on special teams.

            To me..the 1997 will always be the "how the **** can Chris Callaway not fall on an on side kick" ...Giants.

                        i didn't really follow the giants back then. i was only 6 years old. i started following them at the beginning of the 2005 season which was eli's first full year as a starter and i remember watching the 08 team thinking that they would have a very good shot at repeating. then burress shot himself and everything went down hill from their. if they had beaten the eagles i think they could've definetly beaten the cardinals and then the steelers.

                          Did they lose to the Vikings in the playoffs? I was young too but remember them blowing a lead and the Vikings winning

                            Yep. If the Giants won they would have gone to Lambeau the next round and faced us. Instead the Vikes went to SF and lost 38-22 and we played Tampa and beat them 21-7 en route to losing to Denver in the Super bowl.

                              97 and 02 were tough playoff losses. blew two 4th quarter leads and lost by one point in both.
