There has recently been a lot of talk about this with the news of Eli and Strahan getting their numbers retired. Since Strahan retired there was always some talk about him having his number retired. Whenever such a thread was started Carson was always brought up. Until Eli retired a lot of people on here assumed that there would be no more retired numbers and that the Ring of Honor was the new way to honor past players.
I was recently looking through both lists and one thing never discussed is that there are two Giants with retired numbers who are not in the Ring of Honor. They are Ray Flaherty and Ward Cuff. Ray Flaherty was actually the first player in American sports to have their number retired. How are these two not in the ROH?
Other players that I think should be in the ROH are:
But the only players who I think should have their numbers retired are:
One more thing, what are everyone's thoughts on Dick Lynch, is he deserving to be in the ROH over the players I listed? I listed six of his teammates who I feel were more important Giants. Is he there more for his broadcasting career? I know he was a good players, but he had a short career and only made one pro bowl.
