All time Least Favorite/Worst Giants Roster

CoughlinHandsonHips : 5/19/2017 8:51 am
Can't have a thread about the best without the worst!

Let's limit it to players expected to start or be major contributors going into day 1 of training camp. Players like Herman Moore, added mid season due to injury and being beyond horrible, are exempt.

I started paying attention mid 90s

QB - Dave Brown, Danny Kannell
HB - Joe Montgomery, Andre Williams, Herschel Walker
WR - Brian Alford, Tim Carter, Thomas Lewis
OT - Ian Allen, Rosenthal
OG - Tam Hopkins, Whittle
OC - Bober
TE - Myers, Beckham

DE - Damontre Moore, Cedric Jones, Ferrera
DT - Dwight Johnson, William Joseph
LB - Barrett Green, Kevin Lewis, Nick Greisen
CB - David Thomas, Frank Walker
S - Will Demps, CC Brown

K - Steve Christie
P - Dodge

Man this one hurt to put together..
Some player on your list weren't  
BigBlueDownTheShore : 5/19/2017 8:55 am : link
half bad.
Fun list...I got a chuckle  
bigblue12 : 5/19/2017 9:01 am : link
Brian Mitchell needs to be on that list...

pierce58 : 5/19/2017 9:03 am : link
I guess the player had to be somewhat relevant to frustrate you. A plain bad player that never plays doesn't typically irk fans.

How about Sinorice Moss at WR. I remember him sucking so bad, but we always thinking he was going to get it.

Ron Dayne, Ron Dixon, soooo many of our LB'ers over the past 10 years.
Ya gotta kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince.  
Marty in Albany : 5/19/2017 9:05 am : link
Come to think of it, Prince was a kinda frog, too.
Gary Shirk  
Beezer : 5/19/2017 9:06 am : link
is my all-time least-favorite TE.

That pick may be influenced a bit by the fact that every time he missed a block or dropped a pass that was in his hands, Dad would pace and refer to him as Shirk the Jerk.
It's hard to believe  
Beezer : 5/19/2017 9:09 am : link
that for as much mention as he gets on BBI, especially lately, Ron Dixon played just 37 NFL games.
.....  
CoughlinHandsonHips : 5/19/2017 9:14 am : link
I was at the Gmen/Philly playoff game were Dixon returned the opening kickoff. One of my best sports memories. Couldn't put him on there.

Moss, on the other hand. Major oversight on my part.
Come on.  
Crispino : 5/19/2017 9:17 am : link
Frankie Ferrara? The original high motor White guy?
Joe Montgomery seems like an odd choice  
Ron Johnson 30 : 5/19/2017 9:20 am : link
There are so many from the 70s it's impossible for me to choose

Me too, the highlight of sports fan life
Hard not to include Derek Brown at TE  
mfsd : 5/19/2017 9:22 am : link
And Tommy Maddox is hands down the choice at QB
of recent memory  
BigBlue2112 : 5/19/2017 10:19 am : link
Matt Dodge, Sinorice Moss, Ron Dayne, Tim Carter, even Larry Donnell

You could include a laundry list of failed FA LB pickups just in the last 5 years:

Aaron Curry, LaVar Arrington, Dan Connor, Keith Rivers. Guys were absolute freaks in college and failed to produce/even play with the GMEN.
No list is complete without WR Rocky Thompson  
PatersonPlank : 5/19/2017 10:23 am : link
#1 draft pick in 1971. His career line is 16 receptions for 85 yards (yes less than 100 career yards) in 3 years. He actually had more rushing yards on end-arounds than receiving yards. Deadspin voted him hte #7 worst NFL player of all time.
Craig Morton  
Ron Johnson 30 : 5/19/2017 10:23 am : link
QB hands down
Joe Pisarcik is my starting quarterback  
Beezer : 5/19/2017 10:34 am : link
on any all-time worst Giants teams.

Sure, the infamous "nightmare" v Philly, which I watched live on TV. Scarred me for a while.

But in his first 2 seasons, Pisarcik started 23 games, had 16 TD passes and 37 interceptions. HOLY SHIT!

He played longer for Philly (5 years) than he did for blue (3 years), which seems appropriate, all things considered.

Career 47% completion percentage.
Career 24 TDs, 48 INTs
Career 53.9 QBR (46.3 with the Giants)

Some try to give him a break by saying it was on John McVay, that handoff. But Pisarcik sucked ... he sucked!

Note: Shirk the Jerk caught 1 pass that day for 8 yards. My worst QB and worst TE were teammates.
Kannell and Graham, and CERTAINLY  
Beezer : 5/19/2017 10:38 am : link
Craig Morton were ALL MUCH, MUCH better quarterbacks than Joe Pisarcik.
Ferrara and Greison were monster over achievers  
YorkAveGiant : 5/19/2017 10:45 am : link
they should be applauded for making a roster.
Some of those names really bring back memories.  
Mike from SI : 5/19/2017 11:02 am : link
Who was the DE we got from the Titans via FA who did most of nothing for a few years? He annoyed me for some reason.

Also, LS needs to be Trey Junkin.
Most of 1970s  
Jimmy Googs : 5/19/2017 11:29 am : link
take your pick of loser QBs and Head Coaches...

Kenny Holmes
Worst Giant Q.B. in last 50 years....  
Tark10 : 5/19/2017 11:52 am : link
Jim Del Gaizo. He looked like Frank Zappa. The Giants traded with Miami for this guy. Mid- 70's. You younger guys are fortunate you didn't have to deal with this guy.
No argument that Del Gaizo stunk.  
Beezer : 5/19/2017 11:56 am : link
But how many games did he actually play? I think you have to have some kind of actual tenure with the club to make the "worst all-time" team. As in, some significant shittiness. Del Gaizo barely knew his way to the bathrooms.
This isn't easy  
crackerjack465 : 5/19/2017 12:22 pm : link
QB: Jesse Palmer

The 1974 roster would be a good place to start. There were only about ten players on that team who didn't completely suck.
cb should be Jeremy Lincoln  
TheEvilLurker : 5/19/2017 12:37 pm : link
It seemed like he was always out of position.
Bob Timberlake was the worst QB I can remember  
aquidneck : 5/19/2017 12:46 pm : link
All American for Michigan in 1964 he was drafted #33 overall (looked that up) by Giants, but was so bad he was converted to full-time PK by Giants during his very first (1965) NFL season after which he promptly went 0-14 on FG attempts.

He was cut and out of the league during 1966 training camp.

What BBB said.  
Bubba : 5/19/2017 12:54 pm : link
Hard to imagine worse rosters that include starting
RBs as Joe Orduna or Willie Spencer etc.

i agree with damn near all of this. i was a big kevin dockery fan though, real solid nickel corner and great special teamer. To each his own.

I definitely miss the "AWASOM!" jokes.

Certainly not the player, though.

These lists bring back so many bad memories. God, Will Demps was so fucking bad.
Tommy Maddox was by far the worst QB  
David in LA : 5/19/2017 3:24 pm : link
I've ever seen put on a Giants uniform.
Carlos Emmons, DOrsey Levens, and Brian Mitchell  
David in LA : 5/19/2017 3:25 pm : link
should be on there too.
.  
arcarsenal : 5/19/2017 3:25 pm : link
Also, Dave Thomas was slow as shit but we've had way worse.

Jeremy Lincoln?
To the guy that said Lavar Arrington  
David in LA : 5/19/2017 3:26 pm : link
to be fair, he was really starting to show something that game in Dallas, and then he ruptured his achilles.

Too young for Craig Morton?
He didnt have a stellar career with us...  
jnoble : 5/19/2017 5:19 pm : link
..but I'd personally leave Dave Brown off my "worst of" list because he tried his best every week despite having nothing to work with and a coach who didn't like him, had some good games and moments here and there (remember plowing over Deion?), and was one tough SOB despite whatever his limitations at QB. I'd put Maddox or maybe Kannell or Palmer over him any day of the week.
Even if only from mid 90s, CoughlinHandsonHips is too harsh  
Ivan15 : 5/19/2017 5:40 pm : link
JAGs but decent players listed.
Kids....geez  
Gman11 : 5/19/2017 6:47 pm : link
You haven't seen shit until you watched years of Joe Pisarcik at QB. Scott Brunner was a star compared to Pisarcik. Oh, you've never heard of Brunner? Dan Kanell would put him to shame.

Running backs - Oh, all too many .... Ernie Koy - he was a starter! He wasn't even a good punter and he did that too. Rocky Thompson - a first round draft choice. There were a lot of nondescript starters (Larry Heater- remember him), but these guys were really bad.
Ray Handley would have to be the coach.

Maddox's tenure with the Giants 26% completion and a QB rating of 0.0.

Morton was on some horrible teams and a big disappointment for the Giants but IMO he was a better QB than Maddox
