Top Five NY Giants of All-Time


Tiki Barber | Giants Tickets

5. Tiki Barber, Runningback:

One of the more controversial Giants’ players of all time amongst his own fans, Tiki Barber owns most of the Giant’s offensive records.  He leads the three most essential offensive categories which make him the leader in rushing attempts, yards and touchdowns and is one of only 3 running backs in NFL history who rushed for more than 10,000 yards and obtained 5,000 receiving yards, with Hall of Famers Marcus Allen and Marshall Faulk being his company.

 

Phil Simms | Giants Tickets

4. Phil Simms, Quarterback:

Simms was the 7th overall pick of the 1979 NFL Draft and played his entire career with the New York Giants.  His #11 jersey is retired and for good reason as Simms career resume includes 2 Pro-Bowl selections, 2 Super Bowl victories and one Super Bowl MVP award, the 1985 Pro Bowl MVP and the 1986 NEA National Football League Most Valuable Player award.  He has a very good career QB rating of 78.5 and threw for 33,462 yards in his career.  He also posted one of the most efficient numbers in Super Bowl game history as he went 22/25 for 268 yards and 3 touch downs against the Denver Broncos.

 

Michael Strahan | Giants Tickets

3. Michael Strahan, Defensive End:

Michael Strahan is the greatest defensive lineman to ever play for the New York Giants.  Originally being drafted in 1993, he played his entire career with the Giants.  Over the course of his great career he earned 7 Pro Bowl appearences, 2001 Defensive player of the year, 100 sack club, NFL’s 2000 all decade team, most sacks in one season (22.5), and a Super Bowl Championship.  He is the Giants all-time leader in Sacks with an outstanding 141.5.

 

Lawrence Taylor | Giants Tickets

2. Lawrence Taylor, Outside Linebacker:

Arguable the greatest defender of all time, Lawrence Taylor just misses out on being our #1.  He is one of only 2 defensive player to win the AP NFL MVP Award , was defensive player of the year 3 times, elected to 10 Pro Bowls as well as 10 All-Pro selections and most importantly a 2 time Super Bowl Champion.  Having the 3-4 defensive essentially created for him, Taylor showed off his athleticism and versatility as he would often spend half his time on the defensive line and the other half at the linebacking core.

 

Eli Manning | Giants Tickets

1. Eli Manning, Quarterback:

The #1 overall pick of the 2004 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and later traded to the New York Giants, Eli Manning is our greatest Giant of all time.  Not because of his twice winning the Super Bowl, and twice being named Super Bowl MVP or even his NFL records of 15 fourth quarter touchdowns in a season and most road playoff wins by a quarterback at 5, but because both of his Super Bowl victories have come against this decade’s best football team, the New England Patriots; including beating them in 2008 and bringing their perfect 18-0 record to an end.
