Phil McConkey

If you're a Giant fan, you have to love Phil McConkey.

The former Navy helicopter pilot exemplified the spirit of the Giants in 1986. ?McConkey was cut by the Giants before that season, but was re-acquired by the club to bolster its sagging special teams play. ?He did that, and more.

McConkey was the lovable underdog, the guy you had to root for. ?Today, at the Giants' anniversary event, he was as loquatious, passionate and poignant as ever.

Recently we caught up with former Giants WR and special teamer Phil McConkey at a charity event in NYC.? He was always a player that could get the team fired up.? To this day, he is as animated and entertaining as ever.....

Phil, what is your take on the current Giants receiving corps?
A lot of young guys with incredible potential. I think what you see out of Steve Smith, one of the best clutch guys in the league. They have Manningham on the outside and Nicks, he could be a beast. Ramses Barden, we haven't even seen anything out of him Phil Simms wishes he had some of those guys! (laughter) If Phil Simms had those guys he'd be off the charts setting records.

Tell us about getting traded to Green Bay and Bill Parcells getting you back.

We don't have much to say today except that we are proud of the all of the men women who are serving in our armed services. We wish them and their families the best on this Memorial Day weekend.

We would also like to take a moment to reflect on those who gave their lives for this country over the past two-hundred and thirty-five years. Their sacrifices will never be forgotten.

That being said, we decided to feature a short documentary by NFL Films which features former Giant WR and U.S. Navy helicopter pilot Phil McConkey.
