All-Time Giants Roster Quarterbacks:

With it being a quiet time around Giants land I figured I would assemble my all-time Giants roster/depth chart.  I will try to unveil a different position every day or two.  I hope you have fun with this and feel free to chime in with any thoughts, for or against, my selections.

My All Time Giant Roster Quarterback Addition Depth Chart:

 

Phil Simms #1 (Starting Quarterback) by a large margin.  Simms is by far and wide my favorite Giant of all-time.  When Phil Simms was drafted in the first round with the 7th overall pick Giant fans booed the pick.  But when Simms retired after the 1993 season, there wasn’t a Giant fan who did not love Phil.  He led the Giants to there first Super Bowl title during the 1986 season when they beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXI.  It was the Giants first league championship since 1956. Phil Simms was named MVP of Super Bowl XXI by completing 22 of 25 passes for 268 yards and 3 touchdowns.  Simms finished his career with 199 touchdowns and 33,462 yards both first on the Giants all-time list.  Phil Simms passed for over 3,000 yards 6 times in his career. Phil’s number 11 was retired by the New York Giants.

 

Eli Manning, #2 (Back Up).   Manning was drafted number one overall by the San Diego Chargers and was traded to the Giants for Phillip Rivers and the Giants’ 2004 3rd-round pick and 2005 1st and 5th-round picks.  Manning sat for part of his first year but eventually replaced Kurt Warner as starting quarterback and has not given up the reins since.  Eli Manning led the Giants to their third Super Bowl title defeating the then unbeaten New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.  Manning, like Simms, was named MVP of Super Bowl XLII by completing 19 of 34 passes (one of those receptions considered the greatest of all-time) for 255 yards, two touchdowns and one interception (that Steve Smith should have caught).  As of today Manning has thrown for 14,623 yards with 98 touchdowns and again like Simms will one day have his jersey retired by the Giants.

 

Y.A. Tittle, #3 (Emergency Quarterback).  In Title’s brief career in New York he lead the Giants to three straight championship games (1961-1963) but the Giants lost all three.  In his four years with the Giants Tittle passed for 96 touchdowns and 10,439 yards. His best season was 1963 when Tittle passed for 36 touchdowns which at the time was an NFL record. The Giants retired Tittle’s # 14 and he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971.
