      maybe not the greatest giants play of all time but atleast one of the greatest hits in giants history. like madden said, that is football. look at that mouthpiece go flying. just epic.
      Awesome video. Love that Giants D from the '80s. That D, and team, HATED losing. Great LBs too, but that was a 3-4. I REALLY miss a 3 - 4 D.

          Nicks running past 5 or 6 dbs for a long td and doing the dirty bird in the end zone against the Falcons in the playoffs last year.

            I still think Hostettler holding onto the ball in the endzone getting sacked by Bruce Smith in SBXXV is one of the greatest plays I've seen.

              I also like the hail marry to Nicks right before the half in the game against GB....

                Actually, the most memorable play in that game to me was the Plaxico TD. That was the best moment of the game. Maybe the best moment for me as a Giants fan.
                I don't go as far back as you, but I do go back to 1967 as a Giants fan. The helmet catch was definitely the most bizaare play. (at least among the positive plays)
                The Plax catch was great because we won the SB with that catch. But it was an easy catch. Might not have happened if not for DAVID TYREE!
                Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

                  How about 4th and one on that drive. BTW DD made a great block on Seymour on that play (for all the DD haters out there)
                  I mean plenty of plays were needed to win that SB. The Tyree catch was just the most bazaar.
                  Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                    The question was regarding the "greatest" play in Giants history.
                    "The question was regarding the "greatest" play in Giants history. " Yes, and thats the David Tyree catch!

                      Like you had typed. "The question was regarding the "greatest" play in Giants history. " not "plays"

                        Bazaar or luck had nothing to do with it. Eli saw tyree, threw it, and tyree caught it.

                          It's bizarre because of the improbability of that play and that's the reason why it's the greatest play. Bizarre is not a bad thing, it just means you would barely see that kind of play being successful, which made it so great because it was all the way successful. It took two players to play their best and be clutch at that moment. Definitely that was not luck, that's pure motivation and determination at its best.

                            I'd say there was some luck involved. Everything from Eli not getting sacked, to Eli throwing it up for grabs (despite the call of Tyree being wide open) and Tyree catching the ball with his head.

                              Morehead state acts like it being bazaar somehow "downgrades" it .

                                Bazaar means market, right? Unless there is another meaning for it, then that word does not even make sense to describe that play.
