As the decade comes to a close, SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano put together his All-Decade team for the Giants.
Here's how it shakes out...
QUARTERBACK: ELI MANNING
This one's easy. Manning led the Giants to his second Super Bowl win during the 2011-12 season, where he was named MVP in that game as well. Until this season when Daniel Jones was given the reins in Week 3, Manning has been the franchise quarterback, holds multiple team and league team, and of course, has the hardware to boot.
RUNNING BACK: AHMAD BRADSHAW
No it isn't Saquon Barkley. Instead, it's Bradshaw, a crucial piece of the Super XLVI team. He scored that game-winning touchdown with 57 seconds left to seal the win for the Giants, and he rushed for over 1,000 yards in two of his three seasons this decade.
WIDE RECEIVERS: HAKEEM NICKS, ODELL BECKHAM JR., VICTOR CRUZ
This is a star studded group. Nicks is the OG here, playing as Manning's No. 1 wideout for four seasons from 2009-2012. He had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2010 and 2011, and many will remember his ridiculous Hail Mary catch in the end zone against Green Bay during the NFC Divisional Round on the road to the Super Bowl.
Beckham may not be a Giant any longer, but his impact was immediate. He broke rookie records on his way to "The Catch" that vaulted his stardom sky high. Four 1,000 yard seasons and double-digit touchdowns in his first three make him arguably the best offensive player the Giants have ever had on their team, let alone this decade.
Rounding out the group is Cruz, who went from undrafted rookie to household name during the 2011 season. Another crucial target for Manning on the Super Bowl run, Cruz had three solid years from 2011-13 before injuries plagued his career.
TIGHT END: EVAN ENGRAM
The Giants have had multiple tight ends over this decade from Larry Donnell to Kevin Boss. But they don't compare to the matchup problem Evan Engram has shown to be. Injuries have hurt his production, but his rookie season showcased that speed and ability to be a big end zone target for Manning.
OFFENSIVE LINE: LT DAVID DIEHL, LG KEVIN BOOTHE, C DAVID BAAS, RG CHRIS SNEE, RT KAREEM McKENZIE
This would be a fun line to be behind if you're Manning and Bradshaw.. Snee is a Ring of Honor member as of 2015, and Diehl could join him one day after playing 11 seasons with Big Blue.
DEFENSIVE ENDS: JASON PIERRE-PAUL, JUSTIN TUCK
Blocking these two coming off the edge was always a hassle, especially when they were together. Pierre-Paul's breakout season came in 2011 with 16.5 sacks, while Tuck had five that year. Osi Umenyiora is tough to keep off this list as well.
DEFENSIVE TACKLES: DAMON HARRISON, LINVAL JOSEPH
One of the best run stoppers in the NFL, Harrison definitely has to make this list. And some Giants fans may forget Joseph was a second-round pick back in 2010. He was a key piece of the interior for four seasons before moving on to the Vikings, where he plays the same role.
LINEBACKERS: CHASE BLACKBURN, MATHIAS KIWANUKA, MICHAEL BOLEY
Blackburn's best season for the Giants came in 2012 with 98 combined tackles and three sacks to go along with four forced fumbles. He collected a Super Bowl ring as well.
Kiwanuka is the best of these three after playing five of his nine Giants season in this decade. He had over 200 combined tackles and 19 sacks total in those years with six forced fumbles. His best season was the Super Bowl year with 3.5 sacks and 84 tackles.
Boley played for the Giants from 2009-12 and led the linebackers in tackles in 2011. He also had a fumble return for a touchdown that season with two other fumble recoveries to his name.
CORNERBACKS: COREY WEBSTER, DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE
Webster played nine seasons with the Giants from 2005-2013 before calling it quits, and his impact was felt throughout. This decade was the bottom half of his career, but it was still productive with 41 total passes defended, and 14 interceptions including six during the Super Bowl year.
Rodgers-Cromartie came over to the Giants in 2014 and spent four seasons as a solid cover man for Big Blue. His best year was 2016 when he had six interceptions, 21 passes defended, a forced fumble and a sack with 49 combined tackles.
SAFETIES: LANDON COLLINS, ANTREL ROLLE
This tandem would've been fun to watch if they played together. Rolle was the last line of defense at free safety from 2010-2014, and was a tackling machine. He had over 90 tackles in three straight seasons this decade and had six interceptions in 2013. He had two Pro Bowls in 2010 and 2013 as well.
Speaking of tackling machine, Collins was worth that trade up in the second round of the 2015 Draft. He led the Giants in tackles all four seasons he played with the team, including 108 and 125 in 2015 and 2016 respectively. His best season was easily 2016 with five interceptions (one ran back for a TD) and 13 passes defended.
KICKER: LAWRENCE TYNES
From 2007-2012, Tynes held the kicking duties, and has two rings as well. His biggest kick was in the 2011 NFC Championship Game when he knocked home the game-winning field goal in overtime, sending the Giants to the Super Bowl. He had a career 83.6 field goal percentage with the Giants.
PUNTER: STEVE WEATHERFORD
Even more iconic than that field goal from Tynes was Weatherford's reaction, as he sprinted on the field in disbelief that he'd be going to a Super Bowl. He spent four seasons with the Giants from 2011-2014.
KICK/PUNT RETURNER: DWAYNE HARRIS
The Giants scooped Harris up after his days with the Cowboys, and though he was a receiving option, his main purpose was providing good field position from his returns. His best year was 2015 when he returned a punt and kickoff back for a touchdown, including a punt return against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.
HEAD COACH: TOM COUGHLIN
And last but not least, this list rounds out with another easy choice for head coach. Coughlin coached the Giants for 12 seasons, six of which came in the decade. It started great with the Super Bowl win, but after back-to-back 6-10 seasons in 2014 and 2015, the Giants moved on.
Still, the bigger picture is that Coughlin goes as one of the best head coaches in Giants history, so he must be on the list.
