The New York Giants played their first game in 1925. The team was immediately successful, winning their first game and going 8-4 in their inaugural season. In only their third season they won the league championship. The Giants won it all again in 1934 in what became known as the sneakers game, and again in ’38. They returned in ’39 but lost that attempt. The Giants were champions again in 1956.
In ’61, ’62, and ’63 the Giants were in the championship game but failed to win any of them. This marked a downturn for the team. And it was a very long downturn. The hiring of Bill Parcells would mark a turning point for the team. In 1986 behind their Big Blue Wrecking Crew defense, they marched to a 14-2 record and would win the Super Bowl. They closed out the decade with another visit to the playoffs.
In 1990, a 13-3 season led them back to the Super Bowl where they defeated the Buffalo Bills. Following the 1990 season, Parcells resigned and Handley was promoted to his position. Seems a position he wasn’t ready for as the Giants had two lackluster seasons with him. Reeves would come in and get them back in the playoffs, but Simms and LT were at the ends of their careers. Reeves would try to keep things going, but he was fired after the ’96 season and Jim Fassel was brought in.
Fassel had the Giants back in the playoffs by 2000. But he couldn’t recreate that success and was released following the 2003 season in favor of Tom Coughlin. Coughlin acquired Eli Manning, but success was not immediate. However, it wasn’t far off. In 2007 they would defeat the New England Patriots to grasp the Lombardi trophy again. In the 2011 season, the G- men barely squeaked into the playoffs, but took the trophy again.
The Giants went on a slide after, but there was a bright light last season. With a new general manager and a new head coach in Brian Daboll, the team found themselves back in the playoffs and back to form.
2023 should be interesting for Giants fans as this team looks to be back to their winning ways. The Giants have four NFL championships, four Super Bowl victories, 11 conference championships, and 16 division championships spread over 33 playoff appearances.
