The New York ? Giants, An All-Time “Value” Team Part 1

August 14, 2016

It is not so much startling but seemingly unrealistic and certainly unfair to me, that the “all-time value team,” the New York Giants, have as many super Bowl victories as the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers.

The team from Moonachie or East Rutherford or old stand by, Hackensack, but not New York and certainly not Yankee Stadium or even Shea Stadium, where they outscored a beginning Dan Fouts S.D. Chargers team in 1975, was dominant in 1986.

Led by a maniacal, great player Lawrence Taylor, (the fact he was fueled by drugs bothers me less than the fact coach “Willie Boy” Parcells looked the other way and even that pales to the fact the media, led by “love the local sizzle,” Mike Lupica lauds Parcells to this day), “Hack” was (14-2) in the “reg” and dominated all three post season opponents.

Chalk (and they were (10 point Supe faves and they “buried” a NYC “book” called “Captain Ahab” by writer/bettor, Pete Axthelm, as seemingly all of N.Y. and New Jersey “laid it” that day) that one up for the Giants, a well deserved title.

I can not say the same for the other three, especially the last two. More on that in an upcoming post.
