In the closest, most interesting vote we have had for any of the positions on our Big Blue View All-Time Giants Team, Homer Jones has earned the second wide receiver slot, besting Plaxico Burress by one vote. Yes, one vote.
The final tally? Jones 40, Burress 39. Del Shofner and Joe Morrison each got 14 votes, and Kyle Rote 12.
I understood the support for Burress, since current and more recent players are better known to most fans. I was gratified to see the support for a player from an earlier era, though.
So, we now have just two positions left -- running back and quarterback. The Tiki Barber situation will be interesting here.
What I want to do first is ask you guys if we should simply give Tiki a slot, as we have done with Toomer and Lawrence Taylor? I know many of us have mixed feelings about Tiki, so I'm interested to see what you guys want to do here.
Respond to that poll. Once we figure that out, I'll post the full running back poll.
Have a happy, safe 4th of July everybody!
