Tunnell? Rosey Brown? Gifford? Morisson?



to be fair, you need to have watched them to most likely have them as a favorite.


Are you suggesting I am too old for this :)

have Strahan in their top 5 is beyond me....



Because this is favorites, not best players, and quite frankly Strahan was an asshole for most of his career.
See I didn't mind all that crap because on Sunday he absolutely brought it.
Too hard to narrow it down so I went with six and a consolation nod  
steve in ky : 2/5/2019 5:29 pm : link
LT, Ron Johnson, Carl "Spider" Lockhart, Eli, and Simms are probably a, put a gun to my head, the top six I think of. But even though not a very long Giants career Rob Carpenter is a player I enjoyed almost as much as anyone so he gets a nod.

I didn't put Ron Johnson, my bad, but his career was so short.  
BlueLou'sBack : 2/6/2019 3:28 am : link
When I first started watching them, Ron Johnson was the team's best player by a greater margin than LT or
Stray would come to be later, and he was a great and humble human being, unlike the latter two. And that team had Fran Tarkenton and Bob Tucker, damn good players. But Johnson was something special.

...watch the change in Eli Manning's value to fans.

When listing, I really thought back to when my greatest thrills as a fan were.

Eli's 2 Super Bowl 'drives' are unparalleled. He's first.

Bavaro - it was his personality as much as his skill level. A quiet bruiser, the NYC media absolutely LOVED him, he was a excellent route runner and receiver, impossible to tackle and a textbook, punishing blocker - and when he caught that first TD in SBXXI right in front of me, I teared up.

LT is the most talented player the Giants have ever had, period. Not exactly lovable, but so much fucking fun to watch, I STILL spin highlight reels occasionally. He was simply unbelievable.

When I do go to Giant games, it's always wearing my Van Pelt jersey. Back when I first became a fan, he, Harry Carson and Dave Jennings were the only Pro Bowlers on the team.

Confuses people. What's with these youngsters who don't remember linebackers from 40 years ago?? COME ON!!

My bad leaving Ron Johnson off my list. Great under-rated player, great guy, a very bright light amidst a lot of darkness back then.
Been a fan since 1942, impossible to keep it to five.......
