1990: 6-0 #NYGiants vs 4-2 Redskins. The @Giants beat Washington earlier in DC. In 2nd quarter CB Brian Davis was a target of the Giants & @PhilSimmsQB hit Stephen Baker for a TD and a late shove drew a penalty (and Bavaro & William Roberts' ire). 7-0 Giants lead. #GiantsPride

1990: Everson Walls picked off 44 passes with Dallas in 9 years but didn't have a home there in the Jimmy Johnson rebuild & signed with #NYGiants as a Plan B free agent & earned a starting job. Here @Walls_24 got his first pick of Stan Humphries in the 2nd quarter. #GiantsPride

1990: Not sure what was smoother- @PhilSimmsQB play fake rollout and hit Bavaro for a TD or the words "Simms to Bavaro" coming out of Summerall's mouth. We even saw the rarest of the rare, a Bavaro smile. 14-0 #NYGiants lead. #GiantsPride

1990: Up 14-0 this was an example of #NYGiants defensive dominance working together with the @Giants Stadium crowd in a 3 and out for the Redskins that included a @LT_56 pressure (running over Russ Grimm) on one play & a safety blitz Greg Jackson sack on the next. #GiantsPride

1990: Parcells ran more specials trick plays & go for it on 4th than any #NYGiants coach I can remember. But I never saw this version of @LT_56 running across the field and into a go pattern into the end zone. LT was amazing. Like @RichSeubert69 in 2002, this was PI #GiantsPride

1990: The Redskins came back & looked to take the lead in the 4th quarter at the 3 yard line. Earnest Byner had a great career (~13k total yards in the NFL). But his fumble in the 1987 AFCC in Denver was a blemish. And this mistake led to a Jackson pick. #NYGiants #GiantsPride

@BigBlueVCR
1990: Football is a field position game. And when done right all 3 phases work together. Special Teams flips field position and sets up wins (or loses games). #NYGiants had 2 of the best: P Sean Landeta and Reyna Thompson to cover. This play was a prime example #GiantsPride

1990: Walls played 9 years in Dallas and never scored a TD. @Walls_24 put the game away w/ his 2nd pick on the day & returned for a TD & 21-10 lead. @GaryReasons hit on Humphries would result in a concussion & the QB wouldn't return. Listen to that crowd. #NYGiants #GiantsPride

-@PepJ52

Yes Bill was a big believer in flipping momentum. And he had a great feel for when to do it.

Yes Bill was a big believer in flipping momentum. And he had a great feel for when to do it.

I remember this game vividly was in college at UMD. it was great sweeping them those years. The interesting thing bout this play was it was a real momentum changer...for the Skins. They were down 14-0 and they got back to 14-10 and on the doorstep when Byner dropped the pass in the endzone right into Jackson's hands. I remember as the skins were driving to possibly take the lead they posted a stat for the total yds before and after the fake and I forget what it was exactly but before it was like 175-10 Giants and after it was totally reversed in favor of the Skins. While Parcells did have a nack for calling great special teams fakes, that was one time he probably would have been better off taking the 3 and the 17-0 lead.
Not for nothing  
SirLoinOfBeef : 6/30/2020 6:47 pm : link
but watching these old highlights makes me rethink what I originally thought about Stephen Baker...

He did make some plays. Maybe not enough to justify his draft position, but more than I remember.

And LOVED LT's glare  
SirLoinOfBeef : 6/30/2020 6:49 pm : link
regarding the penalty...

Baker was a 5th round pick  
djm : 6/30/2020 9:17 pm : link
Great draft pick. Ingram was a first rounder and Odessa turner was a fourth rounder (or 3rd) from that 1987 draft. That’s without cheating I think I got it right.
Does the Walls Pick 6 get called back today?  
Andy340350 : 6/30/2020 10:18 pm : link
Reasons throws Humphries to the ground after the pass is gone. Roughing the Passer?
Thank You Thank You

The Parcells v. Gibbs games were great. Can't find anywhere 1988 Giants at Redskins, 1989 Redskins at Giants, and 1987 Giants at Redskins (in a losing cause for the Giants), all gems. But this game and the one two weeks prior Giants at Redskins two of my all time favorites in the Parcells-Gibbs era. Thanks again!
