Per Sirius: Your Giantsí Mt. Rushmore- 4 ONLY.

Big Blue '56 : 7/9/2019 10:45 am
Please DO NOT list 5 or more or even ties. JUST 4..

I am trying to make it as difficult as possible and of course there are no rights or wrongs, simply our opinion.

You can put a player, or coach or owner in your top 4, but again, ONLY 4 or please donít participate.

It took me the full 60 minutes on my Stairmaster to settle on 4. You can imagine how many times I went back and forth.

My heads on Mt. Rushmore, in no order:

1-L.T.

2-Eli

3-Parcells

4-Rosy Brown

And go:

Owen coached 23 years with a .602 winning percentage. He needs to be on the list.

Wellington Mara

Saquon Barkley (a 'hunch' tells me he'll have an 'alright' career here.)

For those who picked Well Mara,  
Big Blue '56 : 7/9/2019 11:33 am : link
I was going back and forth on that one. Many times.
Only players or coaches I saw

Strahan
Parcells
Eli
LT
Mara - LOL...  
bw in dc : 7/9/2019 11:40 am : link
If we are mixing players and non-players, I'd go:

LT, Parcells, GY, and Rozelle. GY and Rozelle saved this franchise. Mara is a joke.

Just players: LT, Simms, Strahan, Bavaro.
I am not  
crick n NC : 7/9/2019 11:45 am : link
Sure there is a need to laugh at other people's selections. If you don't agree with Mara obviously that is fine.

Blue Racer : 7/9/2019 11:57 am : link
LT, Eli, Hein, Strahan

Greatest coaches: obviously Parcells and Owen.

Just missed the cut: Gifford, Carson, Rosy Brown.

Changed the game: LT, Benny Friedman (changed the game forever with the development of the forward pass)
Tough to keep it at 4...  
Kanavis : 7/9/2019 11:57 am : link
Without having seen the old timers like Huff and Gifford who I am sure are deserving...I would say...

1. LT
2. Carson
3. Eli
4. The NO GM who drafted George Rodgers.


As for Mara.... Well... I respect opinions but he was honestly one of the worst owners on the history of the game. Young had to be forced on him.
Only players  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 7/9/2019 11:58 am : link
LT, Eli, Strahan, Armstead.

As other mentioned Parcells, The Duke, Little Bill.
my four

LT
Phil Simms
Eli Manning
Bill Parcells
I was 10 years old in 1981 when LT showed up  
SLIM_ : 7/9/2019 12:01 pm : link
so that is my scope.

LT
Eli
Strahan
Parcells

but as at least one other poster mentioned, I would save a spot for Saquon.

2-4 was tough, I have 5 other guys that could go in there. Bavaro, Jacobs, Banks, Marshall and Parcells. Barkley will one day be in there, possibly as high as #2
I an surprised I am the only one who mentioned Tiki  
Essex : 7/9/2019 12:08 pm : link
He is arguably the best offensive player in team history. I don't like him much personally, but he was generational at his peak. Easily one of the best players in Giants history. Should also be in HOF, easily.
I'm going not with the best in their craft  
Jay in Toronto : 7/9/2019 12:10 pm : link
but whom I also respect as humans and examples of character, hence no LT

Harry Carson

I thought hard about that.
If he had retired a year later and won the Super Bowl heíd be a lock for Rushmore and the HOF.

The Giants have been around almost 100 years now,  
truebluelarry : 7/9/2019 12:40 pm : link
so I picked one player each (no coaches or administrators) from 25-year segments:

1925-1949 - Mel Hein
1950-1979 - Frank Gifford
1980-2004 - Lawrence Taylor
2005-present - Eli Manning

LT, Strahan, Eli, and eventually Barkley

You're a wise man, Larry.
Darnold would already be on it.
