The New York Giants have been around since 1925. Narrowing down the franchise’s all-time Mount Rushmore was a challenge, but here it is.
New York’s football scene has been rather one sided. The New York Giants have won eight championships in 96 years (1925-2020) of existence, and the franchise holds an all-time record of 696-608-33.
Many great players have played for this iconic club, like Y.A. Tittle, Frank Gifford, Phil Simms and Tiki Barber, among many other names. Of course, the franchise has also had significant coaches like Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick, Steve Owen and Tom Coughlin.
Picking just four players for the Mount Rushmore of all-time greatness was tough. The first three fell into place rather easily, but there was a handful of players who could have been fourth.
So, we start with the honorable mentions. First, the team’s all-time rushing leader, Tiki Barber. His 10,449 career rushing yards have him well above Rodney Hampton’s second-place total of 6,897 yards. Barber is second in rushing scores (55) to Brandon Jacobs (60).
Barber was potent as a pass catcher too, and his 5,183 career receiving yards rank fourth all-time. He has the second-most receptions in franchise history with 586.
After Barber, Phil Simms and Frank Gifford both had strong resumes to consider for the fourth position. However, there will always be challenging omissions for franchises like the Giants. So, who did make the all-time Mount Rushmore?
