  • Food for thought: Do rankings really matter?

    I see alot of threads about rankings around here. Personally speaking, I don't hold any credibility in them because usually some NFL analyst has a favorite team or always selects teams he knows about.. Brady and NE (we snuffed him twice)! GB and the likes.

    Don't get me wrong.. Brady and rogers are great QB's and such however, if the team doesn't gel... what difference does it make?

    My research has taught me that the Tisch and Mara families bought and saved the NY giants back around 1925 and bought them for $500. their plan was to concentrate on being a strictly football team. no cheerleaders, no fluff, just hard nose football.

    We built this league:

    Vince lombardi came from us
    Tom Landry came from us
    Parcells, belichick and coughlin all came from us.

    I recall Mara gave up market share to allow smaller market teams to have TV time and be fair...if I'm mistaken or wrong please correct me on this TV market thing.

    What's not to love about our organization?

            The Tisch's have only been around for 25 years or so. It was the Mara's who solely owned the Giants since the beginning.

                      Rankings only matter after the entire season and post-season has played out.
                      My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...

                        Rankings generally are a waste of time. They usually follow previous season trends and that's basically it. Most of these people don't watch the games and only look at the stat line. Don't get me started on the nfl top 100, which has been a joke since its inauguration.

                          Years ago the teams didn't share the television revenue. The Giants received the highest payout from the NFL's television contracts ($175K) compared to the Packers ($35K).

                          With the belief that the league was only as strong as it's weakest link, Wellington Mara was instrumental in making sure all NFL teams shared the television revenue equally.

                          Fast forward to 2013 - the Packers received $187.7 million in revenue which is 1/32 of the league's $6 billion in revenue.

                            thank you for the clarification bro. Either way, this team has a history of helping to better and benefit the league. Gmen deserve kudos for this fact, Jerry jones wouldn't do it.

                              The only ranking that matters is the one that we get when the play clock reads 00:00 at the end of the Super Bowl
