    YA had this team in 3 straight Championships and is absolutely in the argument as not only one of the best NY Giant QBs.....but one of the best QBs the NFL has ever seen

    he was completing over 60% of his passes and throwing for over 3000 yds and 30 plus TDs in the days when you could mug receivers

    also in 14 game seasons
    And 12 game seasons!

    Same thing with the Jets and 70-whatever Joe Namath.
    Except that Namath has now oddly become an old woman . . . .

    nothing new.....his propensity towards fur coats and nylons started way back in the '70's ..HA-HA !!

    he was a player who just started to reach the age where he would start paying dividends, and then was shipped to the Black Hole. aside from the Super Bowl, he was a very good postseason player throughout his career. just very immature coming out of penn state.

    Collins was a coward, much like Sanchez, and David Carr.........afraid of contact he would step in the bucket and throw off his back foot constantly

    Both guys (Collins and Sanchez) have NFL all time Pick Six legacys.............Simms must have been disgusted watching Collins

    Kerry Collins cowardice made me want to vomit...........I never once saw the guy step up in the pocket to avoid a rush........What an embarassment that guy was

    His one highlight was Minny 41-0.........then he came out in the SB throwing Piks like he was getting a Pik bonus

    The sad part was he replaced a guy who took us to the playoffs- Danny Kannel- a great game manager, and nifty runner. Its always about the arm......when as Parcells once said- 90% of the QB position is between the ears

    that Ravens defense stripped him of his manhood.

    hey , he did really great for a temp hired gun.....but he wasn't a Giant long enough to qualify.

    there were only 14 teams (10 of which sucked) and 2 divisions.....the championship was the ONLY playoff game.
    he choked all 3 times......3 times 1 and done. (Romo-esque)
    even Kerry Collins had a few post season wins (as an old hired gun....and equatable to YA as such)

    this guy was one of the games all-time famous-for-nothing legends. Kelly...Tarkenton....there is
    a long list of QB's with equal or better stats that never won anything.
    he probably isn't even in the top 10 best of the ones without a ring.

    Marino,Tarkenton,Moon,Kelly.....etc.

    for the record...
    26th all-time passing yards. which is very respectable ,but not top 10.
    18th all time in TD's (242) pretty good , but still not even close to top 10.

    the only thing YA tittle was in the top 10 in was.....
    9th all-time in interceptions thrown.
    he threw 248 int's , but only 242 TD's

    he actually threw 6 more pics than td's.
    not even Favre can say that !!

    in the '61 championship game we got shut out 37 to nothing - Bart Starr 37 YA 0
    in the '62 championship game our only score was a defensive touchdown . YA 0
    in the '63 championship game , YA threw 5 pics.

    overrated , over-hyped ....regular season stats but big choker in the big games.
    you obviously never saw him play


    that "big choker" has a gold jacket .....thats how much he choked



    go look up Gale Sayers stats.....and Lynn Swanns stats.....were they over hyped and overrated as well?

    stats don't tell the whole story

    get real.
    it is not important how you feel about this ....not at all

    it is important how the Maras feel about it

    and they feel he is one of the best Giants of all time.......retired his number out of respect for what he did for this organization

    and his bust sits in the Legacy room of the stadium....and it also sits in a little room Canton Ohio

    so yours and my opinion = absolutely meaningless

    Maras opinion = everything

    opinion of his peers = everything


    and the Peyton comparison is completely ridiculous

    Peyton and Montana have championships in their previous cities......they are heroes there....icons

    YA did not have that type of impact in SF
