It's Ring of Honor Night

The 1986 NY Giants were, are and always will be my football hero's. Congratulations to Leonard Marshall and Joe Morris. Two of the bus drivers from NY Giants Camelot 1984-1990. Long overdue and well deserved.

Congrats to Ottis, Rodney, Kyle Rote and Jimmy Patton too. I didn't get to see Rote and Patton play but I heard so many stories about them from my father and uncles I felt like I did.

Some great Jim Gordon calls in the linked video.

"The rest of your life men, no one can ever tell ya you couldn't do it, because you did it". - Bill Parcells January 25, 1987

Hopefully the 2022 Giants can keep the score close for the first half so everyone is in a good mood for the ceremony. TV will probably show a few seconds but will be streaming it live and I'm sure it will be available after the game too.

a loss.

Maybe they change that for once?
Happy for Leonard.

Long overdue and I do not know why. He was a huge part of that 1986 chanpionship defense.

Joe Morris also- Little Joe was our offense for a few years. Hard to imagine where the Giants' fortunes would have went without his enormous contributions.

Congratulations to both!!

I cannot comment on the others two- I never saw them play.
I'm mostly happy for Jimmy Patton.

I've championed him for the Pro Football HOF for years. It's about time he's started receiving some long overdue recognition.

That being said, seeing the guys I grew up and came of age watching like Joe morris, Ottis Anderson, Leonard Marshall and Rodney Hampton is a personal thrill for me. Having them going in together is very representative of what we called "Giants Football" during that era - running the football and defense, and they are all deserving.

No just a loss, but a rather deflating loss.

Would love to know our record in games where we honor teams and players from the past

Every Hall of Fame or Ring of Honor makes a mistake.
So many great Parcells quotes.

I read many of them often, and some of them still give me chills.

Those were fun times.

The fact that it took THIS long for Leonard to get in is a joke.

We had a nice little run of RBs there with Morris, OJ, & Hampton. All were studs.
