New York Giants Posters
NFL Posters – New York Giants
The defending world champion New York Giants posters tend to focus on their recent Super Bowl victory. Since the game was one of the most exciting in league history, many of these newer Giants posters are top rate. Eli Manning running away from the Patriots rush and David Tyree catching the ball with Rodney Harrison draped all over him are two of my favorites.
New York Giants Posters – Eli Manning
Eli Manning was the #1 pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. The Giants traded up to select Manning, who has been the face of the franchise since 2004. New York Giants fans have been highly critical of Eli Manning after several playoffs disappointments, until he led the team to a win in Super Bowl XLII in early 2008.
There are several good Eli Manning posters in a traditional pocket passer mode. My favorite is Eli Manning running away from a New England Patriots sacker as the Patriot yanks at Eli’s jersey.
Plaxico Burress Posters
Plaxico Burress is the outspoken star receiver for the New York Giants. Plaxico was a star with the Pittsburgh Steelers before he came to the Giants, and has battled through injuries in his time in New York City. Plaxico made news when he predicted a Giants victory over the New England Patriots in the XLII Super Bowl, and then sealed the victory with the game-winning touchdown with under a minute left in the game.
Plaxico Burress’s best poster is a Super Bowl touchdown catch, as he turns to run into the end zone as a Patriots defender chases him across the goal line. Another great Plaxico Burress poster has him stretching out to grab a ball as a Colts defender looks on. A third great Super Bowl XLII photo waving the ball over his head.
Jeremy Shockey Posters – New York Giants Tight End
Jeremy Shockey is another outspoken member of the NFL New York Giants. Shockey is undoubtedly one of the most talented tight ends in the National Football League, bringing with him pass-catching and blocking skills. Unfortunately, Jeremy Shockey is also injury prone, and the big Oklahoma-bred tight end was on the injured reserve during the Giants recent Super Bowl win.
As one would expect, Jeremy Shockey has several great posters. One Shockey poster has him leaping over a Green Bay Packers defender to catch a long ball. A second poster shows Shockey stiff-arming a Packers defender who is diving at Shockey’s knees. Probably the best Jeremy Shockey poster has him falling to the ground with his helmet off as Philadelphia Eagles defenders look on. A fourth great poster has Jeremy Shockey with his helmet off, celebrating a big play.
Giants World Champions Posters – David Tyree
David Tyree was considered a minor member of the Giants receiving corps before Superbowl XLII, but Tyree will go down in New York Giants history for his acrobatic catch in the Super Bowl which kept a late Giants drive moving. David Tyree was a 6th round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft.
David Tyree posters tend to focus on his amazing catch against the Patriots. Two separate posters show Tyree from two different angles, as Rodney Harrison tries to separate him from the ball. A third David Tyree poster has him celebrating after the catch, holding the ball and pointing it at the crowd.
New York Giants Posters – Brandon Jacobs
Brandon Jacobs is the current starting running back for the New York Giants. Jacobs took over for Tiki Barber after Barber retired. Brandon Jacobs was a complete departure from Tiki, as the 6’4", 260-lb. Jacobs is obviously a power back. Jacobs has been productive when he isn’t injured.
Brandon Jacobs posters tend to focus on runs up the middle of the field. Two include runs from the Giants late regular season match-up with the New England Patriots. Another shows Jacobs being tackled by two Green Bay Packers defenders. My favorite shows Brandon Jacobs stretching for the extra yard against the Pats in their regular season match up.
Giants 2008 Playoffs Posters – Ahmad Bradshaw
Ahmad Bradshaw is the current backup to Brandon Jacobs. Bradshaw had a starring role in the New York Giants playoff run in the 2007-2008 postseason. Ahmad Bradshaw was a rookie this last year and was a 7th rounder in the 2007 NFL Draft.
The lone Ahmad Bradshaw poster has him running through traffic at Super Bowl XLII. Bradshaw is stiff-arming a Patriots defender who is lunging at him from his left.
Super Bowl XLII Posters – Justin Tuck
Justin Tuck had an amazing Super Bowl XLII, with two sacks of Tom Brady and one forced fumble. Given the ability of the Giants defense to shut down the New England Patriots offense, Justin Tuck could have been the game’s MVP. Currently, Justin Tuck is a pass-rushing defensive end for the New York Giants and acts as the primary backup for Osi Umenyiora and Michael Strahan. Given their oft-injured status, Tuck plays as much as many starters.
The lone Justin Tuck poster shows him leaping at Tom Brady from behind, knocking the ball away from Brady in a key third quarter turnover in Superbowl XLII.
New York Giants Football Posters – Osi Umenyiora
Osi Umenyiora is the star defensive end for the New York Giants. He came one sack short of the NFL single-game record in 2007 when Osi recorded six sacks of Donovan McNaab in a 2007 game. Despite injuries early in the season, Osi Umenyiora was one of the league leaders in sacks in 2007. Osi also was a major contributor to the pressure the Giants D placed on Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.
Three Osi Umenyiora posters show him rushing the passer in his home blue New York Giants uniform. My favorite has Osi on the ground, sitting on Tom Brady after a sack in the Super Bowl.
Michael Strahan Posters
Michael Strahan has been a star defensive end for the New York Giants for over a decade. Strahan holds the single-season NFL record for most sacks and has been a Pro Bowl selection man times. Michael Strhan considered retiring prior to the 2007 season, but returned just prior to the beginning of the season. Strahan became a leader on the Giants Super Bowl team.
With such a long and storied career, there are several great Strahan posters. One has him rushing through the New England Patriots’ line in a regular season contest, while a second has him locked up against the Philadelphia Eagles John Runyan. One shows Michael Strahan at the Super Bowl XLII, sitting on his knee in anticipation of the next play. Another has him rushing the passer in the same game. Finally, my favorite Michael Strahan poster is after the game with him in a Giants t-shirt, with him smiling a big, toothy grin after capping his career with a Super Bowl victory.
