Giants By The Numbers: 41 Is For ...

C.C. Brown.

Just kidding, just kidding. No hate mail, please.

This one goes to a defensive back from the Wilderness Years many of you have probably either never heard of, or don't remember.

Willie Williams.

Huh? Who the heck is that, you ask?

Williams was a cornerback from 1965-73, and spent all but the second season of his career with the Giants. That year he was in Oakland. Williams had 35 career interceptions, all as a Giant, including an NFL-leading 10 in 1968. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 1969.

Williams also did some punt and kick returning. He even filled in as the team's punter for part of 1968, punting 10 times for an unimpressive 29.1 yard average.
