New York Giants rumors page gives you up-to-date information about the New York Giants a American Professional Football team in based East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The Giants were one of five teams that joined the NFL in 1925. They are the only team of that group still in existent. They are the longest establish team in the Northeastern part of the United States.
They are in the East Division of the National Football Conference in
The Giants play their home games at Met Life Stadium at the Meadowland s in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Their headquarters and practice facilities is located at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The New York Giants rumors replaced their old stadium with the New Med life Stadium that open in 2010. The new stadium is a 50/50 partnership between the Giants and Jets.
What I like about the new stadium is that the two teams built the stadium with private money. They both share the stadium which is a unique arrangement.
The NY Giants were founded in 1925 by Tim Mara with an investment of $500.00. To distinguish themselves from the then baseball team NY Giants, they change their name to the "New York Football Giants", which is their legal corporate name.
In the early 1960s, the New York Giants who were a franchise that were one of the leagues biggest attraction. Rather than keeping their revenue to themselves, the Mara sons pushed for equal sharing of revenue to benefit the entire league.
The revenue sharing is still practiced in the NFL today. The Giants remembered the financial struggles during their early years and wanted to stabilized the league.
The Giants are currently owned by and operated by John Mara and Steve Tisch. They also are one of 7 franchise in the NFL to hire a African American as their general manager. Jerry Reese has been the Giants general manager since 2007.
The Giants played the Baltimore Colts in the 1958 NFL Championship Game that is considered in history as the Greatest Game Ever Played. The Giants lost the game in overtime 23-17.
During this era the Giants had Hall of Fame players such as
Frank Gifford RB, Sam Huff LB, Roosevelt Brown OT, Andy Robustelli DE,
Emlen Tunnell DB, Don Maynard WR and all-pro Alex Webster RB.
Head coach Jim Howell's staff had Hall of Fame coaching staff Vince Lombardi coaching the offense and Tom Landry coaching the defense.
The Giants nick names are the "Big Blue", the "Jints" and my favorite
the "G-Men". The News York Giants news are one of two teams in the National Football League to have players uniform numbers on the front and back of helmet.
The new york giants rumors have a season tickets waiting list of 135,000 people, the largest of any franchise.
In 1980 I became a New York Giants fan due to bad ownership in Atlanta.
I watch the Giants defense and became a fan. I watched the Giants win
2 Super Bowls. My favorite player was Lawrence Taylor, what a great
defensive player and a great Linebacker and pass rusher.
I am a Atlanta Falcon fans now because of Arthur Blank the new owner
of the Falcons since 2002. I still route for the Giants though.
The New York Giants are my number 4 franchise in the NFL. They are a Class Act organization and if you are a up and coming owner, please use this franchise as one of my top 5 teams to build your franchise.
