Lots of great memories. That Sehorn pick against the Eagles is my favorite of all time pick 6’s.
excellent - thanks for posting!  
Del Shofner : 6/24/2020 10:07 pm : link
My faves are Sehorn, Erich Barnes, George Martin and LT.

LT, who could do just about anything at any time.
Lots of good ones in there....

younger Giants fans may not know that Henry Carr was one of the fastest people on the planet in those days, at least at 100 yards to 200 meters -

Prior to bringing his athletic talents to Arizona State University (ASU), Carr was a state champion sprinter for Northwestern High School in Detroit having posted a 100-yard time of 9.3 seconds. While competing for the ASU Sun Devils, he won three national titles; along the way setting world records at 220 yards and as a member of the Sun Devil 4 x 440 yard relay team.

Henry Carr won the 1963 NCAA title at 200 meters in 20.5; the same year he ran 20.69 to tie Paul Drayton for the USA title. Twice that season Carr ran world records; a non-ratified 20.4 for 220 yards and, three days later in a college triangular meet, a 20.3 for 220 yards. Henry Carr ran even faster in 1964; setting a world record of 20.2 for 220 yards. He also defeated Drayton into second place to win the national title.

It was at the 1964 Olympics where Carr would achieve his greatest fame; Carr won the 200 meters (in an Olympic Record time) and anchored the winning 4 x 400 meter relay team to a world record 3:00.7 (with Ollan Cassell, Mike Larrabee and Ulis Williams).

Of the LT pick 6 omission vs the 49rs and the QB that did no wrong in the big games if you listen to some of the experts, I am going to watch that game today. They never seem to recall the 49-3 distruction, and the 3 playoff games they scored a combined 19 points, doesn't fit the greatest QB argument I guess.

That’s an interesting angle, one I’d never thought of before. I wonder if it has anything to do with the 1990 NFC Championship Game never being given the FL Films treatment in its Greatest Games series. They did it with the 2007 game at Green Bay, but that 1990 NFC Championship is still the greatest 60-minute exhibition of everything that is great about the game of football: how the game was played, what was at stake, the players and coaches involved, the big plays at key moments...all of it. In my opinion it is impossible to understate the awesomeness of that event. But, maybe there are those who do not want to see Leonard Marshall drilling Joe Montana into the Candlestick Park turf anymore?

Yes agree with both you and PaulN. They hate to admit that the 49ers hated to play the Giants

What's really strange is to hear that college-fight-song music. I mean, I guess that's what people thought would go well with football footage. Makes you appreciate what Ed Sabol and the NFL Films people did. SO much better.
aaaah Jason Sehorn what might have been

So pissed off at Fassel. He looked ready to become a really great player.
My 2 favorites are the George Martin against Elway,

If you could only pick two, I'd be OK with those two.

Did that TD make George Martin the career scoring leader for DL?

I believe so.

I have always said Martin's play was the single greatest play in old Giants Stadium history........
Has to be Sehorn for two reasons:  
Dave in Hoboken : 6/26/2020 11:49 pm : link
1) The athleticism and ability to focus on the ball while you're down on the ground, looking up at the ball, tipping it to yourself a couple times, all while having to get up from laying on the ground to getting on your feet and keeping track of the ball so he can catch the ball, and then run the ball and avoid getting tackled. I mean, wow.

2) Like, come on. It's a PLAYOFF GAME AGAINST THE EAGLES.
It's  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 6/26/2020 11:51 pm : link
a decent job, but how can you leave off Elvis Patterson's OT pick 6 against the Eagles in 1985 and Terry Jackson's pick 6 against the Eagles in 1981?

haha....great points. Tough to argue!

But Martin's return was LONG....and at the end of sustained drive by the Broncos so Martin was probably sucking air (as Parcells noted in America's Game). Plus George is a D-lineman!! Great hand-eye coordination to tip it to himself for a big man too!!

And I love Jim Gordon's call!!!!! "ELWAY HAS HIM AND BREAKS A TACKLE......."

Those are HUGE misses!
LT's 49-3 pick-six is the big miss  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 6/27/2020 9:11 am : link
When I hear Jim Gordon and Jim Lynch, I'm like a grade school kid again. "LT, LT way to go!"
The Sehorn play is alien.  
mittenedman : 6/27/2020 3:08 pm : link
Several different aspects of the play are high level of difficulty, strung together.

The most impressive part, to me, is the beginning of the play: that ball is thrown low and outside. How he managed to get himself under that ball while controlling his body seems almost impossible.
Wow  
Joey in VA : 6/27/2020 9:56 pm : link
So Landon Collins really burned his bridges, his return against the Rams in England was absolutely sensational but fuck him for picking on an old man.

There’s a list of the various scoring plays. :

1977: 30-yard pick six against the Redskins.
1978: Lateral after a blocked field goal against the Falcons.
1980: 4-yard touchdown reception against the Cowboys (lining up as tight end).
1981: he has two: an 8-yard fumble return against the Redskins and a 20-yard fumble return against the Cardinals.
1985: 56-yard pick six against the Cardinals.
1986: 78-yard pick six against the Broncos.

However, Jason Taylor now has the current record, with six fumble recoveries and three pick sixes.
George Martin stats reference. - ( New Window )
Question about Martin:  
Angel Eyes : 6/28/2020 10:51 am : link
So back when the Draft was coming up, there was talk about the different type of edge rushers Crash and Buck. Was Martin a Crash or Buck?
