    DID YOU KNOW??

    all these games i have to admit are fun and make the off season interesting.
    lets try some trivia.
    even if you look up the answer.....maybe we can all learn a few things from each other.

    Ill start semi easy.

    who was the Giants first thousand yard rusher, and what year was it?

    One day after a particular season, Allie Sherman approached a Player and said " RG I want you to go on the Cambridge Diet and lose 20 pounds. The Player reported 30 pounds over weight in training camp. Allie " RG I thought you were going on the Diet " To which the player replied " I did coach, the drinks were so delicious I had 2-3 cans with each meal ". Name the Player.

    I'm sure it wasn't Tucker Fredricksom, so I am left guessing Ernie Koy. In the dim recess of my old brain I remember that nickname, but can't remember, for sure.

    not Koy or Tucker, and my clue was incorrect, was a Giant draft pick in '64 and played 2 seasons in NY, retired in 71.
