About The New York Giants
The New York Giants are a professional American football team based in the New York City metropolitan area. The team was founded in 1925, when a local sports enthusiast named Tim Mara paid $500 for an NFL franchise and named it the Giants. The team plays its home games at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, which is also their training place and headquarters.
The Giants are currently members of the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Giants’ team colors are blue, red and white. To avoid being confused with the professional baseball team of the same name, the football team was called the New York Football Giants. It still uses New York Football Giants as its legal corporate name even though the baseball team shifted to San Francisco nearly half a century ago. The Giants have won two Super Bowls in 1986 (XXI) and 1990 (XXV) and four NFL Championships in 1927, 1934, 1938, and 1956.
Initially, the Giants played at the Polo Grounds, which was also the home of the baseball Giants. Renowned halfback Jim Thorpe joined the team, who played a major role in the Giants’ winning their maiden league title in 1927 under head coach Earl Potteiger. During 1927-1963, the Giants appeared in 15 NFL Championship Games and won four league titles.
Head coach Steve Owen led the team for 23 seasons during this period, winning eight division crowns and two league titles. Owen had a number of excellent players including Red Badgro, Mel Hein, and Tuffy Leemans—all of whom later entered the Hall of Fame. A versatile player, Frank Gifford was one of the leading stars of the team in the 1950s and early 1960s and he later got into the Hall of Fame. Rosey Grier, Sam Huff, Andy Robustelli, and Emlen Tunnell also joined Gifford in that elite band.
The Giants built strong squads in the 1980s and early 1990s, which helped them win two Super Bowls and appear in seven playoffs from 1981 to 1993. Defender Lawrence Taylor made a huge impact for the Giants during this period.
In 1986 Super Bowl (XXI), the Giants beat the Denver Broncos 39-20. Lawrence Taylor was named player of the year and Bill Parcells earned top coaching honors. Four years later, the Giants won their second Super Bowl under Parcells defeating the Buffalo Bills 20-19. They regained form in 2000, posting a 12-4 regular-season record and reaching the 2001 Super Bowl, where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens 34-7.
