New, comments

In an incredibly close vote, Sean Landeta has been named as the punter on Big Blue View Nation's all-time Giants' team.

Landeta received 27 votes to 25 for current Giants' punter Jeff Feagles.

Continuing with the kicking theme, let's name the all-time Giants' placekicker next.

To help you younger guys out, going forward I will try to add some stats and biographical information on players whenever it is available.

Here are your nominees for placekicker.

Pete Gogolak -- Gogolak was the first soccer style kicker in NFL history. He holds several Giants' kicking records: -- Giants' all-time leading scorer, with 646 points
-- Giants' franchise records for most points after touchdowns attempted (277) and made (268)
-- Most PATs in a game (eight vs. Philadelphia on Nov. 26, 1972)
-- Most consecutive PATs (133)
-- Most field goals attempted (219) and made (126).

Gogolak spent two years wit the AFL's Buffalo Bills, and was a Giant from 1966-74.

Pat Summerall -- Yes, long before Summerall made a name as one of the best play-by-play men in NFL history he was a standout placekicker. Summerall kicked for 10 seasons in the NFL, the last four as a Giant. His best season was 1959, when he went 30-for-30 in PATs and 20-for-29 in field goals.

Matt Bahr -- Bahr spent just three of his 19 seasons in New York. From Wikipedia: He is best remembered for his performance in the 1990 NFC Championship Game on January 20, 1991, as he set an NFC Championship Game record with five field goals (including a 42-yarder as time expired) to lift the Giants past the 49ers 15-13. He also kicked what would prove to be the decisive field goal in Super Bowl XXV on January 27, 1991, as the Giants beat the Buffalo Bills 20-19.

Brad Daluiso -- Kicked for the Giants from 1993 to 2000. In 1994 he made all 11 field-goal attempts, and in 1996 he went 24-for-27 (88.9%).
