Osi Umenyiora

Osi Umenyiora was a vital part of the New York Giants success in late 2000’s and early 2010’s, most notably helping them win two Super Bowls. The British born pass rusher holds the single season record for forced fumbles and was a two time First Team All Pro. He may not make it to the Hall of Fame, but fans of the G-Men will never forget what he did for that franchise.

Osi Umenyiora Retires

Perhaps it did not get the attention it should have but former New York Giant and two-time Super Bowl Champion, Osi Umenyiora retired this week.

Umenyiora, a former second round draft choice out of Troy, would shine the brightest when the pressure was on and Umenyiora would make two Pro Bowl Teams along with a pair of All Pro Selections.  The Linebacker would record 85 Quarterback Sacks, including three seasons where he recorded two digit Sack campaigns.

The Nigerian born player was a major force in the G-Men’s last Super Bowl win and while he is unlikely to be honored by Canton, it is very possible that the Giants will honor him in some capacity now that his playing career is over.

We here at would like to thank Osi Umenyiora for the memories and wish him the best in his post NFL playing career. 

The 2020 Football Futures are up!

It is always onward and upward for us at, and as such we wanted to take the time to update our Football Futures section.  This is the portion of the website where you have the opportunity to let us know your opinion as whether retired players who are not yet eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame should be enshrined in Canton.  This process also helps us establish where these players should be ranked once eligible.

We already had the Football Futures from 2016, 2017 and 2018 up, and recently we have updated our 2017 Football Futures and our2018 Football Futures Section, and recently we unveiled the brand new 2019 Football Futures Section.
