March Madness ... Big Blue style: The Giants Mount Rushmore

LT vs. Eli in the final to decide the greatest Giant of all-time

Lawrence Taylor...
Lawrence Taylor’s NFL career ended with his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

What began with the top 64 players in Giants history as selected by the Big Blue View staff is down to two.

Quarterback Eli Manning, the two-time Super Bowl MVP, whose last-minute heroics drove Big Blue to wins in Super Bowl XLII and XLVI.

And Lawrence Taylor, the greatest linebacker who ever played, who led the Giants to victories in Super Bowl XXI and XXV.

You choose which Giant is the greatest of all-time.

Manning, a four-time Pro Bowler, always saved his best for last. He led the Giants to comeback victories in those two Super Bowls. In the 2011 season, he led the Giants on six game-winning drives.

Taylor, an eight-time All-Pro and 10-time Pro Bowler, was the 1986 NFL MVP when he recorded 20.5 sacks. But his impact resonates well-beyond statistics and honors. Maybe the best measurement is the anxiety and terror he induced in left tackles on the nights before they had to face him.
