Could we be the 1986 New York Giants this year?

    As you may know, the 1986 New York Giants won Super Bowl 21 vs. the Denver Broncos. But what you may not know is Mike Munchak and Bill Parcells both have the same 46.8 win % that Parcells had going into that 1986 season.

    And much like those '86 Giants, we're coming into this year with a run first offense, and a dominating defense (well we're hoping).

    Also much like that Super Bowl winning Giants team, our QB has been under the radar. At the time many said Phil Simms would never amount to anything. Well after being the 7th overall pick (Jake went 8th BTW) Simms went on to win multiple Super Bowls with the Giants, perhaps Jake has a similar destiny...

    Hell, Mike Munchak even looks like a young Bill Parcells

    Maybe these are all just coincidences, or maybe not....... We shall see, but for today and up til we play our first game, Im going to pretend Im onto something.

    We will probably be the 2013 Titans, so no, we will not be the '86 Giants.

    It doesn't bother me that Munch has lost a bunch of games, that's to be expected. The problem I have is with all the games that have been complete blowouts, and completely noncompetitive. Although Parcells lost his fair share of games early, I bet he didn't lose them like we lost them. There is a big difference between the 6-10 Packers of 2008, and the 6-10 Titans of 2012.

    I've always found it curious that throughout the history of football, a fan has never shot a player on the field.

    If I had a time machine, I'd going back to that '99 season and putting a bullet or 40 in a few defenders on the last play.

    The 1985 Giants were 10-6. The '84 team was 9-7.

    Parcells got things headed the right way immediately after his 3-13 season in '83 (his first season as head coach).

    Well between Parcells, Bill Belichick, and Romeo Crennel they managed to lose 13 games their first year together in New York, they sucked. But again, just like we're doing, they revived their team with free agents and great drafting.

    Some fans here are too silly or just dont know, but we do look a lot like that Super Bowl winning team on paper.

    That was the 1990 season.


    Are you talking about Super Bowl 21 over the Broncos?
