      SB XXXV was the worst loss. Any other loss is way lower on the misery ladder.

        I would have gone for it on 4th and short In OT against the Colts in the "Greatest Game Ever Played" (according to Sports Illustrated). Even if we had gotten stopped (and Gifford had just made 7 yards on a left sweep, so we should have been able to get a yard or two), that would have been better than watching the D collapse helplessly after the maddening give-up punt.

        I was there. We would have made it.

          I remember thinking... hasn't he got family and friends that he would want to have those tix?
          Yes, we need to pass the hat for him.
          The whiff in Chicago was one of the worst plays in our history. The only solace is that, from the right angle, you really can see that the wind moved the ball. A punters worst nightmare>
          That missed punt plus the Carpenter unforced fumble (kind of a tradeoff with Jerry Rice's unforced fumble at the Meadowlands)) were the difference in that game.

            How about taking Reggie White rather than Gary Zimmerman in the 1984 supplemental draft?

              Superbowl XXXV
              Both Meadowland Miracle ( Nightmare ) Losses to the Eagles
              Not choosing Reggie White
              Letting BBelichik go
              Have Joe P take a knee
              1927, 1934, 1938, 1956, 1986, 1990, 2007, 2011

                Joe P. not taking the knee was one of the best things that every happened to the franchise. It lead to total housecleaning/rebuilding, and most importantly the hiring of George Young.

                  That is definitely right up there on this list. Imagine LT and Reggie White on the same team in their primes.

                    That would have been insane. The Giants could of won most games by scoring 3 pts

                      Oh Lord! Was that really an option for us and why have I never heard that?

                      If you answer the first question, I'll work on the second one.
                      No one remembers who came in second.

                        I would fix the dynasty that never was... Championship games in 1956, 1958, 1959, 1961, 1962, 1963... Highlighted by the crushing loss to the Colts in 1958. Only won one championship in 1956. And when that team was broken up we lost Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry and had 30 years of misery.

                        Fix 1958, and win more championships in that window, the franchise's history would be quite different.

                          So many things, but I will just roll with one. Tell Burress to get rid of his guns and stay his *** home with his family. The 2008 giants had the potential to be one of the best teams in franchise history.

                            No, never. First miracle - we fire coaching staff, bring in George Young, draft Phil Simms. Second miracle, we win SB the next year -- FINISH.

                                Bill's britches got too big for him too soon, before Young was ready to retire.

                                Oh, yeah, bad decision #2 was letting Belichick get away. That was a biggy, too.
                                I give credit to Young for building the team, but he deserves criticism for it's decline post-Parcells.

                                Young and Parcells had a clash of egos, and Parcells deserves his share of blame for that as well. He created alot of turmoil when he abruptly resigned, but from what I remember it was a health decision.
