Easy for me, NFL = Lawrence Taylor
Best in all sports = Michael Jordan

So happy to see them both play in my time.

This is a tough one, I started follwing the Giants in the mid 80s (we got one game a week on ABC with Don Lane).

The best player would have to be LT, but his off field stuff sucks.

So I guess as a plan B, I would go with Carl Banks, a quality player on and off the field (even if he did finish up on the browns).

Phil Simms was a close #2


All time though would be a coin flip between Frank Gifford and Sam Huff for me.

I was young when LT retired, so I'd say Ray Lewis, he's just a straight up stud and at his age now he would start on any team, no doubt, IMO.

I just considered the Giants, from other team it would be Reggie White.

Reggie White was definately a good one as was Deion Sanders.

I remember Sanders playing for the Falcons and just thinking this was one defensive/special teams player that could actually win a game all on his own.

Another very good pick

I guess you could also go with Peyton Manning - he is their franchise

There are so many...
I'd have to say:
1. Barry Sanders (He was just amazing and with no real QB or WR threats and a weak line for many of his seasons)
2. Tom Brady
3. Joe Montana (Greatest winner in my lifetime)
4. Jerry Rice (best WR ever? Def in my lifetime)
