Well, lets just say he is a work in progress. I would say he is getting better and i think he will be a great short yardage guy, but he has a lot to learn if he is going to replace Strong full time.

Mack Strong's retired through injury, with immediate effect. Always considered him to be one of the game's elite full backs - he had a key role in Shaun Alexander's career year in 2005. Sad to see him have to quit mid-season.
A 13 year NFL career is pretty much unheard of for anyone who regularly gets hit... and Mack got hit a lot!!! Or should I say delivered the hit.

With Alstott looking like he's done too, it looks like a pair of my generations best fullbacks are done. Although Mack is truely the definition of the position. Alexander owes him a lot... just look at his stats this year...

This stat says it all about the guy... he's lead blocked for 3 different 1,000 yard rushers.

Try the NASN site, Cris. I think they import stuff but only charge you the UK P&P price.
I can't PM this to everyone, but this is who I got my Ronnie Brown jersey from. Reasonable prices and P+P, pretty swift delivery too.

Yeh ,mine finally arrved today. Block 505 Row 15. Hope that's in the Giants' section

SQUISH THE FISH!!!

You're the road team. If there's a single NY/Giants logo on the field I won't be happy.

Then again, if there's almost transparent white lines on the field I won't be happy either. Do it properly, or don't do it at all.

I'd guess they might to a College Bowl game type thing. One team having an endzone, but I have been wrong before... ... once.

They don't segregate fans at NFL games. Everyone sits together.

Seriously dodgy tache under that helmet though. However, I am tempted by the Bavarro top, as my #89 no longer fits me.

(I always thought you were a Jets fan anyway Grim?)

Grim Reaper 10-10-2007 05:24 PM

As Calvin Harris sang, 'It was Acceptable in the 80s!!!'

As explained a couple of pages ago, I fell into a pattern of blindly following all the New York teams, rather than messing about picking a different team for each sport.

Saved many an argument at school when you ran the risk of being beaten up for being an NFL/MLB glory hunter (not that it seemed to bother people a few months before when every man and his dog jumped on the Chicago Bears/Refigerator Perry bandwagon) or indeed for supporting a crap team also!

Was rather good in autumn of 1986 when Giants went 9-2; Jets 10-1 and the Mets won the World Series. Jets tailed off thereafter but the Giants did the job!

Talking of McConkey wasn't it him who went mental after an epic run and acrobatic dive for a Touchdown....................only for his teammates to point out that he'd been stopped a yard out!!

It's a requirement for Giants Superbowl teams......witness Jeff Hostetler in 1991!

But you're right ;)

Strahan wanted to beat Tiki up when the two were team-mates. I shouldn't say it before Wembley, but Strahan's a pretty funny guy. :D
