Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the New York Giants.
In 1925, the New York Giants were one of five teams that joined the National Football League, and of those five, they are the only ones that are still in existence.
The Giants have been in existence for nearly a century and have won eight Championships. The first four as NFL Champions (1927, 1934, 1938 & 1956) and they were a perpetual contender in the early 1960s. In the Super Bowl Era, they won in 1986 (XXI), 1990 (XXV), 2007 (XLII), and 2011 (XLVI).
Eight Championships is impressive regardless of the league and the sport!
As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NFL.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2019 Season.
The complete list can be found here,but as always, we announce our top five in this article. They are:
3. Rosey Brown
4. Mel Hein
5. Michael Strahan
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.
Look for our more material coming soon!
Up next, will be the top 50 Los Angeles Chargers.
As always we thank you for your support.
