Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor made the list and had an overwhelming amount of votes with 96% from the fans. Current starting quarterback Eli Manning had the next highest amount of votes at 53%. Meanwhile, two-time winning Super Bowl head coach and this year's Hall of Fame inductee, Bill Parcells, was third on the list with 48% of the voting, while former defensive end Michael Strahan rounded out the voting with 44%.
In the article done by Mike Florio, he vouched for Hall of Fame linebacker Sam Huff, but he fell way short of the final four to make the Mt. Rushmore of the Giants, as he only had 20%.
Long-time Giants owner Wellington Mara finished fifth on the list with 36% of the voting. Hall of Fame running back Frank Gifford got 28% of the voting, Phil Simms had 24% and current Giants head coach Tom Coughlin also had 20% along with Huff.
During the segment, Eric Kuselias tried to argue that Manning didn't belong on the list, but former NFL defensive lineman Shaun King went to bat for the Giants quarterback and defended him being on the list, as did Florio stating that the Giants would not have won their two latest Super Bowls if not for him.
It's no surprise that someone would try and find another way to bash Manning give what he has accomplished in his career, but it's nothing that Manning can't handle playing in New York.
