New York Giants All-Time Team

New York Football Giants All-Time Team
M.D. Wright

***EDITOR’S NOTE: As we wind down the 2009 NFL Season, I’m hanging on to any semblance of the season that I can by writing about as many topics as I can. This stretch between February and August is always tough (although NCAA hoops, NBA ball and — by July — MLB help assuage those NFL withdrawal pangs). I will ratchet up my writing about everything sports-related in general, but there will be tons of NFL columns coming in the next 2-3 weeks before I immerse fully into college hoops for a solid Six-Week stretch.

The oldest of all the NFL teams, and the only one of the original teams still operating under the same name and in the same region. Eighty five years of history. A tough call on some of these, and yes, the leaner years (1966-1984) will be reflected here. And yes, this list is heavy with players who have played in my lifetime (1979 – present) but I am very much well-versed in Giants’ history. Sit back, relax and enjoy the read.
