What is the best giants team ever?
Is it the 1986 team or the 2007 team? Is it one of the pre merger teams? Or someone else?
Like the answers but I'm surprised that the pre merger teams aren't coming up. YA tittle or the Sam Huff teams?

I lean toward the '90 team.
The Parcells teams were much better than this ere's teams. They dominated through the whole season. TC's teams squeaked into the playoffs and got red hot.
The only edge I would give to the TC era Giants is at QB and WR. The big difference is the defenses. TC's defense is not even in the same league as BP's defense.
+1. The 1986 team was the best they had in the modern era because the D was just so dominant. And they were young and on the rise. I'd have to go withe the '90 team as # 2.

'86 was simply dominant, awesome team.
