New York Giants trivia page updated!


In honor of the 2007 New York Giants winning Super Bowl XLII over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots, we’ve added some new trivia items to the Giants trivia page.

 

Here’s a sample of some of the new little known facts about the New York Giants:

 

  • Giants’ kicker Bjorn Nitmo was the first Swedish born player to play in the NFL.

  • In his first six seasons in the NFL (with the Cardinals), running back Ottis Anderson fumbled the ball 48 times.  In his final six years (with the Giants), he fumbled the ball just three times.

  • Phil Simms came in second in rookie-of-the-year balloting in 1979, the winner was St. Louis Cardinals running back and future teammate Ottis Anderson.

  • In former Giants running back Dave Meggett’s entire career he completed four passes.  All of them went for touchdowns.

  • The first person to use the phrase “I’m going to Disneyland” after winning the Super Bowl was Giants quarterback Phil Simms after beating the Broncos in Super Bowl XXI.  If the Giants would’ve lost, the famous line would have been said by John Elway.

Congratulations to the New York Giants!
