From the 1990's to 2006, Andy was the informal leader of an email group of NY Giants fans who shared thoughts on the team. What started as a group of ~5 of us grew to ~20 people. People from the group really enjoyed the discussion. In 2006 the Email group led to the "blog" and the rest was history. Sharing the passion of the Giants went wider. Much wider. Railing against the evils of the 'Prevent' grew into a wider set of "Rules," the list for which has been featured at the NY Times, Fark, and many other football blogs. NY Giants, Giants Championships, the NFL and Football Gospel… this site has a reputation for delivering insight and commentary on the Gmen that you cannot get anywhere else. We don't sugar coat underachievement, so do not mistake critical analysis for lack of support of our beloved Giants. If you want the party line, the pom poms and the restrained talk of journalists who are paid to have access and will not tell you the problems, then this is not your place. We read between the lines to get a pulse of the team and our record is here. We simply want championships. Just check the banner at the top. It is the UltimateNYG way that we keep score.
Andy suffered through the 70's with bad football, but guys like Lockhart and Tarkenton and Carson made it all somewhat manageable. Rob Carpenter and LT changed that in '81. 1986 will always be the sweetest because it was our first Super Bowl. Joining the ranks of teams like the Steelers, Raiders and Cowboys in winning a Super Bowl title was football heaven. Now that he understands the pinnacle, it is his job to educate/proselytize/brainwash as many of you as he can to demand championships. 1986, 1990, 2007 and 2011 all make it worth it. Follow Andy on Twitter @UltimateNYG for more coverage, especially during games.
Rich Conforti, a lifelong New Jersey resident who currently resides in Hoboken, possesses a strong knowledge of not only the Giants/NFL, but also the X's and O's of the game itself. He credits this to spending all 11 years of his football career playing as an undersized center on the offensive line, which forced him to make an impact on the field with a combination of football IQ, technique and the occasional "tactic." While he knows it pales in comparison to what Giants' fans of the 70s and early 80s were forced to root for, Rich himself has been hardened having spent his formative years as a Giants fan supporting the "Dave Brown/Danny Kanell/Kent Graham" quarterback lineage of the mid-to-late 1990s. All in all, Rich considers himself to be the fortunate kind of Giants fan, one who witnessed three Super Bowl appearances and two world championships all before the age of 25. Follow him on twitter @richconforti for the most up to date Giants news (via retweets of some of the team's excellent beat reporters) and some of the best NY sports retweets in the game. Feel free to shoot him an email any time at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk Giants football, Knicks basketball or anything in between!
A certified Jets fanatic, Wonder hails from the Bronx and now resides in Vegas. The Giants are his #2 team, but the rest of us should be lucky enough to know as much about football with our #1 as Wonder does for all the rest. His knowledge of the NFL is unsurpassed. The unofficial UltimateNYG guru, he has a beat on EVERY SINGLE TEAM IN THE NFL. Wonder has a keen eye for evaluating talent and is brutally honest about grading out coaches, players and prospects for the NFL. This site is fortunate to have him share his wisdom with us on a semi-regular basis.
