    throwing passes with blood dripping into his eyes

    finishing a Championship game with a blown out knee because he knew his guys needed him

    I'll never forget that game against the Steelers where they battered the old man like no one I had ever seen battered ... worse than Eli in the 49er game ...

    he was one tough sob
    Yes that Championship game vs the Bears in 1963 playing on one leg and coming back with all his heart. We had to use Glenn Griffing for crying out loud. We lost 14-10 we would have beaten them if Fortunato didn't roll into his knee. Boy that game still gets me mad. LOL at myself 54 years later I'm still claiming we were the better team.

        that game is the thorn in my football side ... the Giants would have beat them handily if Tittles knee had not been rolled on

        they still should have won that game ... I'm still that extremely angry 12 year old inside ...

        that game never left me

        the Packer games ... fine ... the better team won ....

        but that damn Bears game

            I'm still upset with the Championship loss to Baltimore in 58! They call it the greatest game every played, but not to me!
            Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

              Did he watch the game on Sunday? Not trying to be glib here, but that might have done it for me if I was 90 and a tough player back in the day.

              98% of the people offering RIPs here never saw him play, and are just mouthing platitudes for an old-timer who died. I also never saw him play, but I bet he was tougher mentally than anyone currently on the Giants roster. I'm sad that what his generation stood for might be lost.

              Nice that he lived into his 90s, not many people do. I wonder what he thought about players kneeling?

                    RIP to a Giant legend. Way before my time, but I know a legend when I see one. I would hope the Giants wear his decal number on their helmets or is that gonna offend someone?

                      Awesome stories, it's great to see some of the fans reminisce about decades ago of football.
                      Rest In Peace YA. Legends never die, they are always remembered.

                            I barely remember Connerly, but YA was my one of my first sports rooting interests. He mignt have been one of the first to have a wide open passing game. At least, that's the way I remember it.
