Giants Should Induct Ernie Accorsi into the Ring of Honor

NEW YORK – I feel very strongly about this. The next class to be inducted into the New York Giants Ring of Honor should include former GM Ernie Accorsi in my opinion. Along with Accorsi, guys like RB Rodney Hampton, LB Pepper Johnson, DT Keith Hamilton, P Jeff Feagles and DE Leonard Marshall should be considered as well. They all deserve to be a part of New York lure forever. Coming off a Super Bowl winning season, it would be cool to have them all with Super Bowl rings of their own. I haven’t heard anything announced about the upcoming class but it certainly should be interesting. To be honest, at times I get a history lesson when an old timer is inducted and I have to do my research on them. It makes it more fun if you ask me.

There are a few other guys like QB Eli Manning, RB Ahmad Bradshaw, RB Brandon Jacobs, DE Justin Tuck, DE Osi Umenyiora, OL Rich Seubert, OL Chris Snee, John Mara, Steve Tisch, Pat Hanlon and C Shaun O’Hara who will be up in lights one day too. But people forget about Ernie Accorsi and the long term contributions he has made for the team, even beyond his retirement that continue to pay off for Big Blue. It is time for this man to be honored the proper way, even if he doesn’t want it. I hope that the majority of Giants fans already know what I mean and agree with me. For the Giants fans that have “heard of him” but don’t know about him, you really need to read about this man. He is a legend in New York football.

I was one of the fans who were concerned when Mr. Accorsi handed over the team to current GM Jerry Reese. Not because I was worried about Reese but because I was so comfortable with Accorsi. Jerry Reese certainly can be considered one of those contributions to the team that continues to pay off. Accorsi gave Reese his full blessing with the brass at Big Blue, which made for a smooth transition for young buck Reese. And make no mistake about it, Jerry Reese has since made a name for himself and flourished with managing premium talent. He is particularly surgical with the NFL draft and just like his predecessor, has won me over. I trust his choices and know that he is trying to field the best possible team at all times. Yes, Giants GM Jerry Reese will certainly be added to the Ring of Honor one day but maybe not before, Head Coach Tom Coughlin.

Right now, we have the 2012 NFL Draft, 2012 Giants Minicamp, OTA’s, Schedule releases and analysis and a bunch of other interesting Giants news coming up. Be sure to come back and check it out!

Do you think Ernie Accorsi deserves to be inducted into the New York Giants Ring of Honor?

    I agree 100% that ernie should be inducted into the ring of honor.he is a huge part of the g-mens family and a class act.and i also was hesitant when he left and reese came in.but thats normal to feel very comfortable with a GM who you know does there job well and change comes.and of course reese will be part of the ring of honor class without a doubt .hey,its big blue,its really looking forward to this season rob.i found your site after they crashed the blogs 1and a 1/2 years ago and was thrilled i found you was so enjoyable to take last seasons rollercoaster ride with everyone at nygiants in south florida its tough finding someone who also knows nygiants football.your site is a blessing to me and i always look forward to your articles.

      Hello Bobby, they must be making plans to do something soon. If not, they should be. I’ve always liked Accorsi and the way he handled his business. I just hope the team doesn’t wait too long with this one. He deserves to be up there already in my opinion. I’m sure the classy Giants will do the right thing.

    Agreed. George Young; Ernie A. and Jerry R. — what fantastic stability!!! Only team to capture a Super Crown at least once in the last 4 decades: ’87, ’91, ’07 and now, 2012. Let’s get Brandon Jacobs back, before the Steelers sign him as a fill-in for Mendenhall. Chargers might want our big man, too, now that Tolbert has gone for the Panthers.

      Hello Charles, thanks for stopping by and welcome buddy. That is an understatement about the stability Big Blue has enjoyed in the front office. It’s been a treat to watch this man do his job. Reese is a beast and I look forward to seeing what other moves he makes this year. I’m still holding out hope for a Brandon Jacobs return but I know it is unlikely.
