Earlier today, we unveiled during Pro Football Talk on NBCSN the Mt. Rushmore for the New York Giants.
The segment appears below, if you choose to watch it. But we won’t make you wait until tomorrow to read the results, like we did with the Cowboys and Redskins. (It’s a work in progress.)
As the picture below illustrates, my own final four consisted of Bill Parcells, Eli Manning, Sam Huff, and Lawrence Taylor.
PFT Planet agreed with me on three of them, with Michael Strahan replacing Huff.
Taylor showed up on a whopping 96 percent of the ballots, which makes me wonder what the other four percent were smoking. Eli appeared on 53 percent of the ballots, Parcells on 48 percent, and Strahan on 44 percent.
Wellington Mara, for whom Erik Kuselias and Ross Tucker made a strong (but ultimately futile) case during the show, got 36 percent of the vote. Frank Gifford appeared on 28 percent of the ballots. Phil Simms was on 24 percent, and Tom Coughlin showed up a lot less than five minutes early, with only 20 percent.
