Thread: The next trophy.

  1. #11
    hey hey, at least there are many Giants fans including myself that want the Giants to win the Superbowl EVERY year, take no prisoners!

    Every year, the team can improve. Every year is an oppurtunity to win it with the talented and special players that we have on the team before Time takes a toll on their bodies.

    History dictates that the odds of a Repeat are slim, winning the Superbowl at the home stadium is impossible, etc... I say screw all that!

    The Giants write their own history that includes being the only NFL in team history to knock off an 18-0 team at the Superbowl.

    17 years is unacceptable!

    Parcells leaving the team along with George Young running it into the ground are why we had to wait 17 years. TC is only leaving the team at this point to retire. Reese doesn't have George Young's ego.

    Yeah, it was a contention of ego's dealing with the front office and coaching and neither would back down. Pretty much the same with Parcells and Jones in Dallas. It definitely set the Giants back until Fassel came in and managed to stabilize it long enough for Coughlin...who the Giants wanted before Fassel.

    Young brought this franchise out of the dark ages.

    "Before Young was hired by the Giants in 1979, they had not reached the playoffs since 1963.

    During his tenure, they reached the playoffs in eight seasons, won their division title four times and produced three N.F.L. coaches of the year: Bill Parcells in 1986, Dan Reeves in 1993 and Jim Fassel in 1997. Young's crowning glory was victories in Super Bowl XXI after the 1986 season and in Super Bowl XXV after the 1990 season, both times with Parcells as coach.

    His first draft choice, in 1979, was Simms, who became a Super Bowl most valuable player.

    His first draft choice in 1981 was Taylor, who turned into one of the best defensive players in history.


    ''It still amazes me that he chose me in the first round,'' Simms said yesterday. ''To take a guy from Morehead State with his first pick ever, it's pretty amazing.''
    Young was a private person, dignified, often stubborn and cranky, honorable and analytical, an old-school conservative who had good relationships with many player agents and little tolerance for those he felt were unreasonable.

    As the agent Leigh Steinberg said: ''Even though he had that gruff exterior, he was tremendous in his ability to give advice and counsel. He enjoyed playing the surface curmudgeon, but inside he had a heart of gold.''
    In 1981, Young hired Parcells, the New England Patriots' linebacker coach, as defensive coordinator. Two years later, when Ray Perkins left to become head coach at the University of Alabama, Young made Parcells the Giants' head coach. At times, their relationship became contentious because Parcells wanted a greater voice about personnel."
    “Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” MB Rule # 1

    Parcells won in year 4 and 8; Coughlin won in year 4 and 8.

    Tom didn't quit after rookie mini camp and name Kevin Gilbride head coach. He stayed for a 9th year, so we've already broken new ground.

    Trends that span different decades are silly, as if one has an effect on the other.

    ...and dumped us right back in the dark ages with the whole Ray Handley debacle. Thank God Accorsi wasn't nearly as egotistical...
