NEW YORK – Hello Giants fans, that was a tough loss against the Packers last night. I knew it would be a close game but I really thought the Giants were going to win. The undefeated Packers continue rolling and deserve the victory. The reason I gave that side note of Monday Big Blues in the article title is obvious. With only four games left in the season, the G-men need to do everything in their power to win all four of those games. If they fail to do so, they will be swimming in the blues until next year.
The playoffs are right around the corner and the Giants fans need their postseason fix after missing the past two years. Do I think it’s possible? Absolutely. The Giants need to get some players healthy on defense to get really busy on the field. Now we learn that S Kenny Phillips was injured in Sundays game and it only gets worse. In my honest opinion, the Giants are lucky to have the record they own with all of these injuries. It is a testament to the depth on the New York squad but still, a 6-6 record is nothing to cheer about.
Yes, the Giants lost to the undefeated Green Bay Packers (12-0) and it looks like QB Aaron Rodgers is a sure thing to win the NFL MVP for 2011. He has been playing on another level this year and breaking records. Which got me thinking, how many New York Giants players have won the NFL MVP? Do you think you know the answer? This isn’t trivia, it is simply stating Giants facts. The answer is five.
Let’s take a look at the five Giants who earned NFL MVP honors.
1. Mel Hein – 1938 NFL MVP
2. Frank Gifford – 1956 NFL MVP
3. Charlie Conerly – 1959 NFL MVP
4. Y.A. Tittle – 1963 NFL MVP
5. Lawrence Taylor – 1986 NFL MVP
Who do you think will end up as the next Giants NFL MVP? Is he on this team?
