  • Why is Pugh # 72?

    Wow--that soon. I guess it's similar to when phillips chose #21. I guess it's one thing I love about the Giants--they have so many star players from the past, so the current day superstars have even bigger shoes to fill. I for one welcome the new legend. Side note: though i'll miss our classic #27's, i welcome our new #27.

    It can change when they cut down the roster, but it is a lineman's number

              Its going to take some time getting used to seeing that old 72 number on Pugh and not think first about Osi, at least I will.

                      I doubt he will wear 79 in the final 53

                          Other Notables Who Have Worn 72
                          Doug Riesenberg was drafted in the sixth round by the Giants in 1987. He became a starter at right tackle in 1988, and was a fixture at that spot until 1995. He finished his career by playing one more season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
                          Gordon King was an on-again, off-again starter for the Giants at right tackle from 1978-85. He finished his career by playing two seasons for the New York Jets.
                          Roman Oben was a Giant for four seasons, 1996-99, and started at left tackle three of those years. After leaving the Giants he played eight more seasons in the league with Cleveland, Tampa Bay and San Diego.
                          Old-timers might remember **** Yelvington, who played right tackle from 1952-57.

                              No one remembers who came in second.
