GM Pulled Floundering Franchise Out of NFL Purgatory

The New York Giants are one of the NFL's flagship franchises.? They have a rich and colorful history stacked with legendary moments created by legendary players. In the 1950's they helped put the fledgling NFL on a par with baseball, producing some of the game's most celebrated personalities.

Then, in 1964, things changed.? Age and poor planning sank the Giants to the bottom of the standings.? Between 1964-1978 the once-proud franchise won only 74 games. To top things off, the co-owners - Wellington Mara and his nephew Tim - were engrossed in a bitter feud that furthered the team's demise.

In stepped in NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle.? His suggestion to hire Baltimore Colts executive George Young was agreed upon by both parties. It was the best decision, perhaps, in New York sports history.
