Summary
The team that ranks third in the National Football League with eight NFL titles and 15 players in the NFL Hall of Fame is featured in this one-of-a-kind handbook for fans. Essential information on the New York Giants is compiled in a direct and accessible format, including pep talks, statistics, critical moments, and important facts about past and present players, coaches, and teams. Answers to questions such as Why was Ahmad Bradshaw trying not to score a touchdown at the end of Super Bowl XLIX? What were the Giants thinking when Tom Brady laughed at Plaxico Burress' prediction before Super Bowl XLII? and Why did Bill Parcells quit his dream job as a Giants assistant coach to become a realtor in 1979? are also included. Fans that bleed blue, red, white, and gray will enjoy reading about some of the more colorful and unique personalities that include Eli Manning, Mario Manningham, Jeff Hostetler, Joe Morris, Jeremy Shockey, and Brad Van Pelt. This updated edition includes entries about the Giants' surprising 2011 championship season and their Super Bowl XLIX triumph over the Patriots
