Inside The NFL visits the Giants, circa 1984!!!

OK, first I have no remembrance of this which is surprising, because Inside the NFL on Thursday nights at 8pm on HBO is why I started my fascination with the NFL.

As a kid, I would wait the entire hour to see how NFL Films would portray last week's Giants game - would I get a 45 second clip of highlights or an extended 1 min and 30 seconds of action and great music!!!?

Anyway, prior to Week 4 in 1984, Lenny and Nick visited East Rutherford and interviewed some of our all time greats, mixed in with those great highlights. I think you'll enjoy it.......give it a look.

Inside the NFL would also replay

Even back then as a player, he seemed like such an "adult."
Great thread and thanks for sharing!

I had the same fascination in the early 90s Inside the NFL was much watch football for me, and I would beam with pride when the Giants did well and would eagerly wait to see how the story was expressed on the show.

They really made each game a masterfully told story unto itself. Just great stuff.

After a particular episode of futility, he threatened to quit and train to be a fighter pilot. I am not sure how to classify that.
wow, that's a classic

a little trivia: Barry Tompkins (the reporter that did the special report on Simms) - in what popular movie did his voice play a prominent role?

That opening music as a kid! We’d pretend to be in slo-mo doing that da-da da-da da-da da da da de-daaaaa.

Loved this show back then. Like the place to see the highlights package. After a win hoping for a longer segment.
