I can't put the blame on Junkin alone (far from it) b/c the game NEVER should have been close to begin with, and the penaly on the 49ers was never called. We were a hot team at that point and the ones with the best chance to beat Tampa (not that we would have).

        An honorable mention goes to the Flipper Anderson game -- losing that game hurt and even Parcells said that that was the best Giants team that he ever coached.
        I re-watched the game recently on NFL Network......Junkin was mis-snapping the ball all game long and one led to another missed FG earlier in the 4th Qtr.
        He should have been pulled after the 3rd bad snap......the 4th was the killer. Fassel signed his own pink slip by picking that guy up a week before we played SFO. The guy we had snapping it though a rookie was doing a fine job.........a classic case of if it anit broke don't fix it

          That game turned when the Refs called back a pick six by us........I'm sorry we did nothing wrong on that play......the fix was in.

            I would have hired Belichick instead of Ray Handley.

              And you can go on and on about Junkin all you want, they blew a 38 - 14 lead in the middle of the third quarter. Pretty sure Junkin wasn't on the field for that.

              And the same goes for Matt Dodge and that Philly collapse.

              It shouldn't have come down to that one play.

                Bingo.
                Although, after 55 years there are a lot of regrets, beginning with the hiring of Allie. We had Lombardi and Landry in-house, and we ended up with Allie Sherman?

                  I would have kept Belichick and made him HC and this probably would've kept LT around too.

                  I would also change SB XXXV. That game was an embarrassment.

                    and brought us Bill P eventually as well
                    yeah, that one sucked

                    Mamba (that was, just...effed)

                    but I hate the Niners more than any other franchise, and that 24 point lead evaporating ...the way it did

                    ugh

                        This is definitely top 3 for me. The Giants were cruising and might have made another Superbowl appearance but their number 1 WR decides to bring a loaded gun into a NYC nightclub. What a complete moron but at least he shot himself and not someone else.

                          It would have taken an act of God to reverse the outcome of SB 35.

                          With the gift of Captain Hindsight, what I would have changed:

                          -->Don't trade for Eli in 2004. Offer a trade down to a QB needy team for the Rivers pick (Pittsburgh in this example, the QB they wanted was Rivers but they settled on Ben), getting their 2005 first rounder in the process.
                          -->Roll with Kurt Warner the entire year and keep him after the season.
                          -->Draft Aaron Rodgers in 2005 with the first rounder that we have now that it wasn't traded to SD.
                          -->Draft Roddy White or Heath Miller (depending on where the pick was that we got from Pittsburgh was).
                          -->Warner (still on the team) wins SB XLII, avenging his own loss to Tom Brady, and retires after that season alongside Strahan after acquiring his second ring. Strahan wins the MVP.
                          -->Rodgers takes over as starting QB in 2008, and is able to defeat the Eagles in the divisional round despite the loss of Plaxico (Remember, we have an extra receiving weapon and don't necessarily have to make Hixon shoulder the entire load), and defeats the Rivers-led Steelers in the Super Bowl.
                          -->Side note: Eli wins a SB with the Chargers in 2009, defeating the Jets, Steelers, and his older brother on his way to facing the Saints, where he wins because he's not a choker in big games like his brother.
                          -->Rodgers doesn't let Philly take over the end of the game in 2010. Matt Dodge is never put into the situation he was in. We also crush the Matt Flynn-led Packers the following week, leading to 12-4 and the #2 seed. Crush the Seahawks, beat the Falcons, and then pummel the Rivers-led Steelers again.
                          -->2011, Rodgers doesn't have all the gaudy comeback stats that Eli has, but he still is able to win the division at 9-7, They beat the Falcons, the 11-5 Detroit Lions, and the 49ers on the way to the Super Bowl against Brady, and *****-slap his *** in a rout.
                          -->Rodgers now has 3 rings with the Giants, having beaten Rivers (twice) and Brady for them, cementing his status as a legend. The Giants now have 7 Lombardis as a team, good for the most championships in the Super Bowl Era. Football overtakes Baseball as THE sport in the New York area, and the Giants replace the Yankees as the team that fans around the country get butthurt about.


                          ...

                          I can dream. I like Eli, don't get me wrong, but imagining the greatest QB playing today in blue is just beyond phenominal.

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

                            This is one thought provoking, impressive post.

                                #1A Letting Vince Lombardi go to the Packers.

                                #1B Letting Tom Landry go to the Cowboys (Texans)

                                #2 Letting Bill Belichick go to Cleveland.

                                #3 Letting Tom Coughlin go to Boston College

                                (#2 and #3 are part of the Ray Handley Error, probably the dumbest decision George Young ever made).
