Larry, were you alive then? You've made reference to your father, so I don't know if you're old enough to remember the trade?
I remember I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach. Same way I felt when I heard Tom Seaver had been traded.
No, I was born in 1968.
My deep appreciation for football history comes from my father. He loved football and the Giants (my grandfather first got our season tickets in 1961 I beleive) and Huff was his favorite player. When my father would take my sisters and I to the games at Giants Stadium he'd always tell stories of the Giants teams with Huff, gifford, Tittle, Webster, et al at Old Yankee Stadium.
|for trading Sam Huff. It was the beginning of the long decline of the Giants, not to be reversed until the league force Wellington Mara to hire a GM who would be independent of Mara's meddling.|
