Getting tons of feedback regarding: “Hey, Giants Fans, Wise The ‘F’ Up!” Much can be paraphrased as follows:
“OMG! I’m so bummed-out! With all the talent we have, we should have made the playoffs! We have to get rid of so and so! Our window of opportunity is closing any minute now!”
Which, when translated, reads: “OMG! We haven’t won a Super Bowl in the last five friggin’ minutes!” Talk about abbreviated attention spans and a lack of perspective! Yikes!
Some pay lip service to the bad old days — from 1964 to 1980 — except, they cite the Kerry Collins/Tiki Barber Era as their version of the bad old days. Yeah! Right! The Giants team that undressed the Vikings in the 2000 Championship Game 41-0, and then, went on to Super Bowl XXXV, represents the bad old days. Gimme a break! Hey, Giants fans, some friggin perspective, huh!
Since our first Super Bowl in 1986, the NY Giants have won more Super Bowls than any other team! Let me repeat that. In the last twenty-six years, the NY Giants have won more Super Bowls (4) than any other franchise! Not the Steelers. Not the Cowboys. Not the 49ers.
The NY Giants have won the third most NFL Championships, EVER — including Pre Super Bowl Era Championships and Super Bowl Championships, combined — with eight all time championships. The Packers rank number one with twelve. The Bears rank second with nine.
Since the Super Bowl Era began, the Giants have the third most Super Bowl wins in history, tied with the Packers with four apiece, behind the Steelers with six and the 49ers and Cowboys with five apiece.
And the Giants have won their four Super Bowls — getting to five — while playing in the NFC East; the division with the most Super Bowl wins in history (12). So, our Super Bowl success has been against the league’s best Super Bowl competition. Meanwhile:
The 49ers play in NFC West, with six Super Bowl wins all time; five of which belong to them.
The Steelers play in the AFC North, with seven Super Bowls wins all time; and six of those wins belong to them.
The Packers play in the NFC North with five Super Bowl wins, four of which belong to them.
The Cowboys also play in the NFC East, too, with five Super Bowls of their own, against the same kind of brutal competition as we face; and we’re only one Super Bowl win behind them.
Okay, I get it. We had a great opportunity and blew it. No question about it, But what’s with all the ranting and raving? This team is built to compete year in and year out. This is a great all-time franchise. Think about it, right now, today, would you rather be a Jets fan? A Cowboys fan? An Eagles fan? C’mon, you small minority of whiners, stop pissing and moaning! You’re embarrassing the real Giants’ faithful.
