The New York Giants will pay tribute to Frank Gifford by wearing No. 16 on their helmets, team co-owner John Mara told WFAN on Monday.
When pro football became an essential sport, Frank Gifford was an essential member. Twice.
Frank Gifford, as well-known for being a buffer for fellow announcers Don Meredith and Howard Cosell on “Monday Night Football” as for his versatility as a player, died Sunday. He was 84.
Gifford was the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1956 when he led the New York Giants to a league championship.
The truly great ones continue to leave us one by one, taking away one living link after another to the old days.
Of all the coaches the Giants have hired over the last 55 years, none have approached the complex career of Allie Sherman, who died over the weekend at age 91.
The voice of football. The NFL’s narrator for generations. A master of restraint. The sport and the world of broadcasting have lost a true legend.
Pat Summerall, the NFL player-turned-broadcaster whose deep, resonant voice called games for more than 40 years, has died at the age of 82.
