EASY, but must be 5

Would be number 6
Sorry  
PaulN : 3/17/2019 10:15 am : link
But too many to make it a top 3 or even 5. To not mention Strahan or tuck would be a disaster, tuck could have 2 Super Bowl MVP's on his mantle for certain, and the 1986 Super Bowl MVP, Phil Simms must be mentioned, and the guy that was the defensive MVP that game, Carl Banks was sensational in the 1986 Super Bowl.
So my new list  
PaulN : 3/17/2019 10:18 am : link
LT
Bavaro
Eli
Carson
YA
Simms
Strahan
Tuck
Banks
Huff

Those are players that must be mentioned in the teams history.
3 is tough... but

Difficult question  
Oscar : 3/17/2019 11:43 am : link
Eli is the only one I would definitely put on the list. After that hard to say, probably Strahan and Tuck. I really liked Tiki as a player but his personality and post-career stuff has a negative impact, also never won a Super Bowl with him.

I saw late LT and Simms but I didnít see their prime years and also I think LT is a piece of shit person so I wouldnít put him on my list of favorites.

LT  
GiantsUA : 3/17/2019 11:49 am : link
Harry Carson
Jesse Armstead

Honorable mention - Eli, Jason Seahorn(pre-injury), SQ (I know it's early), Justin Tuck, Ahmad Bradshaw)
Bavaro  
John In CO : 3/17/2019 11:49 am : link
LT
Banks

Very hard to select only 3. Now I feel bad that I just discounted the last 30 years of Giants....but those 80's teams, that was my era, in my 20's when a Giants win or loss determined the course of my week:)
Number one is too hard.

1a. Eli Manning
1b. Michael Strahan
3. Lawrence Taylor
Arnie Weinmeister, Jimmy Patton and a tie between

Threeís not enough...  
trueblueinpw : 3/17/2019 12:38 pm : link
But itís the game so:

1.Eli
2.Simms
3.Rodney Hampton

Would list LT number one but I just can no longer look past the years and years of truly abhorrent criminal conduct.
Top 3 + Honorbale mention  
giantstock : 3/17/2019 1:57 pm : link
1-- LT
2-- Ron Johnson
3-- John Mednehall

Honorable mention Simms, Carson, and Carpenter.

LT, Rosey Brown...and a pause, as there are so many more.  
yatqb : 3/17/2019 2:46 pm : link
Robustelli, Homer Jones, YA Tittle, Simms, Eli, Carson, Barkley.

For class acts I'd say Eli, Rosey and Carson.
Sinorice Moss, Ramses Barden, and D'Montre Moore  
PatersonPlank : 3/17/2019 2:54 pm : link
in that order.
3 is tough  
Eli Wilson : 3/17/2019 3:00 pm : link
LT
Eli
Dave Meggett (is he still in jail?)

Strahan's attitude pissed me off for a small portion of his career and Bavaro wasn't around long enough - otherwise one of them would be on there.

Barkley is likely to bump Meggett very shortly.

Dave Meggett - Only reason to watch after the Giants fell apart in the early 90s
Rodney Hampton - My favorite player on the 1990 superbowl team.
Derrick Ward - The no huddle offense consisting of what seemed like primarily just a shotgun trap play or a back shoulder fade to Plax was so much fun to watch during such a magical 2007 season. Ward running that trap play made me smile every time.
Bavaro  
BlueLou'sBack : 3/17/2019 9:50 pm : link
Bradshaw
Harry Carson.

Each one of these three didn't have close to the G-d given talent of LT.

But they gave you every ounce of what talent they had...
Then reached down inside and gave a few ounces more.

They left everything they had on the field. What more can you ask of your favorites?
My favorite, not necessarily the greatest...

Mine would be LT, Eli and Harry. Very good to see Troy Archer's name here though and thanks for sharing... As a teenage New York sports fan, my two favorite sports idols were Troy Archer and Thurman Munson. Both died in tragic accidents six weeks apart from each other in the summer of 1979... Archer would have been one of the all time great Giants had he lived. Thanks for the post!
Since 1962
