  • Parallels between giants super bowl runs: 86-90, 2007-2011

    I'm only intending to make this as a lighthearted thread, some of it can be looked at as reaches, but you might find this funny and/or amusing. Just something to think about.

    1986: Giants win super bowl.
    2007: Giants win super bowl.

    1987: Players strike, circumstance out of our control, keeps giants from maybe repeating
    2008: Burress shooting, circumstance out of our control, keeps giants from maybe repeating

    1988: Giants miss playoffs, not even close (Al Toon knocked them out early)
    2009: Giants miss playoffs, not even close (CAROLINA UGHHH)

    1989: Giants have a good team and make playoffs, Flipper Anderson walk off TD. Year should've been better
    2010: Giants have a good team, but come up short, DeSean Jackson walk off TD. Year should've been better.

    1990: NFCCG played at candlestick, won on GW FG by #9 Bahr. AFC East in super bowl
    2011: NFCCG played at candelstick, won on GW FG by #9 Tynes. AFC East in super bowl.

    Between 07 and 2011

    9-7 vs. 10-6 record, only one game difference.
    Beat NFC South team in wild card round (Tampa Bay and Atlanta respectively)
    Beat top seed in NFC in divisional round (Dallas, Green Bay) - lost to both in regular season
    Beat number 2 seed in NFCCG(Green Bay, San Francisco), both times in OT, with Tynes kicking a GWFG, off of a turnover by the other team. Lost to both in regular season.
    Played the patriots in the super bowl.
