The No. 27 has been worn by a handful of backs over the last 20 years.
I don't want the number retired...I just hope they put it away for a while.
The fans need something fresh.
- Rodney Hampton (1990 -1997) second best back in modern Giants history.
- Ron Dayne (2000 - 2004) had very few flashes of brilliance; however, the 2000 Thunder & Lightening duo was great.
- Brandon Jacobs (2005 -2011) big, fast and scary. Up & Down career yet, Earth, Wind & Fire was amazing for a two year window.
Brandon Jacobs was a pure specimen at 6' 4" and 265 lbs. He displayed a rare combination of speed, size and power when he entered the NFL; however, most fans would ask why he never just took over a game.
Some Sunday afternoon's he was pure monster terrorizing defense's everywhere and other days he couldn't fall forward for 2 feet to pick up a first down.
At the core...Brandon Jacobs was great to watch. Enclosed are some clips of No. 27 over the last few years.
