I'm hoping to draw on the wealth of knowledge available here. We're all familiar with the Giants embarrassment of riches at the DE position in the last few years, but I have to admit that in the more distant past the position is a bit of a mystery to me. SO I have some questions I hope you guys would jump all over for me.
1. Who played defensive end across from Strahan from 93 until Osi arrived? Who were the best?
2. When did the Giants convert from a 3-4 to a 4-3?
3. Who were the DTs / NT when they switched and who were the first 2 starting 4-3 DEs? what DE combos did they have pre-strahan?
4. What was the Giants' top D-Line in the 80s? was it a 3-4 or a 4-3?
5. How does their best 3-4 DL compare to their best 4-3 DL,?
I am basically looking for everything beginning with Parcells, but I'd also like to hear about the Giants' greatest D-Linemen historically.
