Overview

The New York Giants have been an integral part of the National Football League since the 1920s, and for more than eight decades, the team has provided countless memorable moments for its fans. With 8 championships and 31 playoff appearances, the Giants are also one of the most successful franchises in NFL history—culminating in the remarkable run to victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, and others from the recent roster are just the latest in a long line of Giants stars. From the early years, Hall of Famers like Red Badgro and Tuffy Leemans established the franchise’s elite status, and the next generation—from Charley Conerly and Rosey Brown to Sam Huff and Frank Gifford—helped bring the team and the league to national prominence. A fierce defensive squad led by Harry Carson and Lawrence Taylor brought the team back to glory in the 1980s, when Phil Simms continued the storied quarterback legacy that began with the likes of Ray Flaherty and Benny Friedman, continued through Y. A. Tittle and Fran Tarkenton, and finally to the latest heroics of Eli Manning. With a dedicated ownership in the Mara family and legendary coaches like Bill Parcells and Tom Coughlin leading the way, the Giants have been providing gridiron thrills decade after decade.

New York Giants: The Complete Illustrated History provides all the stories and stats behind these legendary teams and is chock full of glorious imagery of both favorite and long-forgotten heroes. Fully updated to celebrate the latest Super Bowl triumph, this is the ultimate celebration of a beloved franchise.
