Remember Curtis Delotach? What ever happened to Charles Stackhouse? Anthony Mix anyone?
For some reason I remember "Curry Burns" ...He had an INT during the last game of the 2004 season (Eli's first win)
I thought he was going to be pretty good too..
was a pretty good receiver and made some big plays for the Giants....now sure why he didn't stick around until the first SB.
Particularly made some huge plays in 1984.
Turns out my son lives next door to him outside of Fayetteville, NC. Whenever my wife and I visit our son and his family, I always come up with an excuse to go next door and chat with Jerry for a few minutes.
Joe McLaughlin from UMass.
Doug Van Horn
Rocky Thompson...Richmond Flowers...the great Homer Jones
Pete Athas gave me his chin strap as a souvenir at the Yale Bowl. First guy I remember with hair coming out of the back of his his helmet. Norm Sneed was qb that year.
vs the Rams...Willie Ponder gave me a wrist band as the players were walking through the tunnel. i gave it to some little kid. Shook ol Archie's hand that game too. The first real "monster" game of Eli's career with 4 TDs and 0 INTs.
and Troy Archer.
A lone wolf of talent, and a what-might-have-been.
Also the infamous Henry Carr and Clarence Childs(aka: Where's-the-receiver? 1 and 2).
As a kid I was amazed how he would run through the line backwards after getting spun around.

Jim Katcavage, God rest his soul.
Sonic Youth mentioned him and the motor early on in the thread. Page 1.
was impressive against the Eagles in quite a while.
Linemate of Pettitgout at ND
Richmond Flowers, Coleman Zeno, Charlie Evans.
Beside Campbell and Orduna, that memorable squad had Dan Goich and Joe Taffoni.
1973 and 1966 had to be the worst years to be a Giant fan.
Feel bad for the way he is remembered for that botch in 1997 on the onside kick
After he left the Giants and came up to the CFL. I would tape his games and mail them to his folks.
Very nice people.
Was Petitgout's linemate at ND
Speaking of OL how about Derek Engler from Wisconsin
Rosenthal had that bullshit "holding" penalty called on him that got a TD taken off the board at home vs the Eagles in 2002. Same with #69....
One of my all-time favorite Giants
Lionel Manuel... an awesome possession WR for us in the 80's. I also played flag football against him after he retired.
Larry Flowers - he was absolutely the BEST defensive special teams player we ever had. Yes... better than Thompson.
Doug Kotar - our RB in the late 70's. RIP Doug who probably got poisoned by the water at the Meadowlands.
Henry Davis, John Mendenhall
someone say Antonio Pierce. My eyes must be hurting me.
