Dalvin Tomlinson Color Rush Jersey
#1
A Date To Remember is an occasional series Big Blue View will be running through the Super Bowl Dalvin Tomlinson Color Rush Jersey , highlighting the glory of the Giants’ past and celebrating the biggest playoff wins in franchise history. The Circus InterceptionJan. 7, 2001NFC Divisional round gameGiants 20, Eagles 10Some called it The Cartwheel Interception.Others called it The Juggle.Whatever you label it, the circus interception was spectacular, bordering on unbelievable.The Giants held a 10-0 lead late in the first half of their NFC divisional round game with the archival Philadelphia Eagles at Giants Stadium. Then came the play everyone in America would be talking about the next morning.Jason Sehorn dove in front of Torrance Small, stretching out for a Donovan McNabb pass he tried to cradle in his arms. The ball squirted out of his grasp as he rolled onto his back. So Sehorn batted it up while lying on turf, pivoted onto one knee and snatched it near his shoulders. He then popped to his feet and sprinted 32 yards down the left sideline for a touchdown.Game over.Somehow, the play has largely been forgotten in the Giants’ rich lore, despite coach Jim Fassel calling it the best interception he had ever seen.It was too momentous a play — and Sehorn was too good a player — to be relegated to the overlooked, dusty archives of franchise history.And the 2000 team (12-4 in the regular season) accomplished too much, even if it was the only squad in franchise history to lose a Super Bowl.But first came the Giants’ 20-10 win — their ninth consecutive victory over the Eagles.And the Giants did it without scoring an offensive touchdown.They jumped out to a 7-0 lead when rookie Ron Dixon returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. The lead increased to 10 after a Brad Daluiso 37-yard field goal.Then came Sehorn’s heroics. He was part of a defense that limited Philadelphia to just 186 total yards and a garbage-time touchdown just before the two-minute warning.Sehorn’s name comes up infrequently, if at all, as the second decade of the 21st century nears an end.But blessed with 4.3 speed, he collected 19 interceptions and four defensive touchdowns in a 10-year career Phil McConkey Color Rush Jersey , nine of which were spent with the Giants. He intercepted 11 passes and forced seven fumbles combined in 1996 and 1997, building a reputation as one of the NFC’s best cornerbacks despite never receiving an invitation to the Pro Bowl.He missed the entire 1998 season after tearing the ACL and MCL in his knee in a preseason game and then missed six games in 1999, dampening his candidacy.A week after beating the Eagles, the Giants thoroughly dominated the Minnesota Vikings, 41-0. Sehorn held Hall of Famer Randy Moss to only two receptions for 18 yards.Then the Giants headed to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa for Super Bowl XXXV. Kerry Collins and Co. ran into the Baltimore Ravens and its all-time defense, headlined by Ray Lewis and Rod Woodson.But it was still a season worth remembering. Washington’s Bruce Allen disputes the idea that Dave Gettleman knew their draft plans"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections New York Giants NewsGiants Training Camp 2016Giants vs. Eagles 2015, Week 17New York Giants NewsRedskins’ Bruce Allen: “Dave has no clue what our board looks like”New,429commentsWashington’s Bruce Allen disputes the idea that Dave Gettleman knew their draft plansEDTShareTweetShareShareRedskins’ Bruce Allen: “Dave has no clue what our board looks like”Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsAfter the New York Giants selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Giants’ GM Dave Gettleman said, definitively, that he knew for certain that two other teams were primed to take Jones before the Giants would have a chance to do that at No. 17. Almost immediately after, NFL scuttlebutt provided the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos as two teams that were hot after Jones. And those teams made sense in the moment. After all, Washington selected Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins at 15th overall, while the Broncos selected Missouri’s Drew Lock early in the second round.Since then Andrew Adams Color Rush Jersey , reports have come out contradicting that belief. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report has said that an AFC executive told him that ”There is no way he was going anywhere else in the top 17 picks.” The executive added that his team, “couldn’t find any team other than the Giants who had Jones ranked in the top two passers.”On Sirus XM NFL Radio Wednesday morning, Duke coach David Cutcliffe backed Gettleman’s assertion that Jones would not have last until the 17th pick.Meanwhile, Dianna Russini of ESPN said on ESPN Radio in New York that “The Redskins and Broncos were never taking Daniel Jones. In Washington, some tried to convince ownership they should take Jones but it never was going to happen.”Mike Klis, who covers the Denver Broncos, stated that the Broncos were not interested in Jones, at least not in the first round: Washington team president, Bruce Allen, appeared on the NFL Network and said, “I’m almost positive Dave has no clue what our draft board would be. I don’t know which draft boards he knows, but he doesn’t know ours.”While that is a completely predictable answer — no executive is going on national TV and saying that their draft room is compromised, nor that the player they selected wasn’t who they wanted to draft — it is also pretty definitive. Was Gettleman fed false information? Could there have been other teams looking to trade into the top 16 for Jones? The world may never know.
