The NFL is entering its 104th season in 2023 and many great teams and great players have graced their fields and events for over a century. Over that time, every uniform number has been worn and made immortal by those players.
Which leads us to ask: which players wore each number the best?
In a recent article titled, ‘The best pro football player to wear every jersey number,’ Touchdown Wire’s Dug Farrar gives it his best shot.
For enthusiasts of the New York Giants, several members of Big Blue made the list:
- Benny Friedman, No. 6
- Emlen Tunnell, No. 45
- Lawrence Taylor, No. 56
- Roosevelt Brown, No. 79
All four are members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Other Giants receiving’ honorable mentions’ include the following:
Kerry Collins (No. 5), Ray Flaherty (No. 6), Mel Hein (No. 7), Steve Owen (No. 9), Eli Manning (No. 10), Phil Simms (No. 11), Y.A. Tittle (No. 14), Frank Gifford (No. 16), Sam Madison (No. 29), Harry Carson (No. 53), Kareem McKenzie (No. 67), Sam Huff and Leonard Marshall (No. 70), Andy Robustelli (No. 81), Fred Dryer (No. 89), Jason Pierre-Paul (No. 90), Michael Strahan (No. 92) and Jesse Armstead (No. 98).
