Simms completes BBV All-Time Team

Phil Simms, as I think most of us figured, was an overwhelming winner in the voting for the quarterback position on our Big Blue View All-Time Giants Team.

Simms received 116 of the 144 votes cast (80 percent). Y.A. Tittle got 13 votes (9 percent).

So, our team is now complete. What do you guys think of it?

I think it's one helluva team. A coach (Bill Parcells) who will one day be in the Hall of Fame.

Four Hall of Famers on defense (Lawrence Taylor, Sam Huff, Harry Carson and Emlen Tunnell) with a fifth (Michael Strahan) soon to be elected.

Three Hall of Famers on offense (Mel Hein, Rosey Brown and Frank Gifford) with a fourth likely to be elected one day (Tiki Barber).

I can quibble with a couple of the selections. I thought Pete Gogolak was a far better choice than Matt Bahr as placekicker. I would have like to have seen Jimmy Patton earn a safety slot instead of Spider Lockhart, but I understand the demographic reasons for that.

I learned that the two weakest positions in the long, proud history of the Giants are probably cornerback and offensive guard.

I learned a lot about many of the old-time Giants during this process, and that alone made it worthwhile.

So, what do you guys think of our team? I'm anxious to hear your thoughts.
