Best New York Giants By The Numbers - 32

The jersey number 32 will never be worn again by another New York Giant. That number has been retired in honor of Al Blozis, the lineman who played his college football at Georgetown University, was an NFL All-Pro, and gave his life for his country in World War II.

The New Jersey native played three seasons for the Giants between 1942 and 1944, before he joined the U.S. Armed Services fighting against the Axis powers in the Second World War.

Al Blozis was also a world class shot-putter, setting the world indoor record while a collegian in 1940.

Best New York Giants By The Numbers - 31

Jason Sehorn, one of the finest defensive backs the New York Giants have had, wore jersey number 31 while suiting up for the team between 1994 and 2002.

Drafted number 59 overall by the Jints in the 1994 NFL entry draft out of the University of Southern California, Sehorn would play in just eight games as a rookie, 14 more in his second pro season, before becoming a starter at cornerback, suiting up for all 16 regular season contests, while beginning 15 of them on the field.

Sehorn was a play-maker in that first season which saw him start in 15 games, 1996. He picked off 5 passes for 61 yards and a TD. He also forced five fumbles and made 83 tackles. Not too shabby for a first-time starter.

In eight seasons total with Big Blue, Sehorn notched 19 INTs for 228 yards, and 4 touchdowns. He also recorded 359 tackles and was a key member of the Giants 2000 NFC Championship team.

Best New York Giants By The Numbers - 30

Wearing jersey number 30 while playing for the New York Giants, Dave Meggett established himself as one of the most prolific return men in NFL history. Drafted number 132 overall in the 1989 NFL draft, Meggett immediately made an impact, particularly in the punt return game for New York.

As a rookie Meggett led the NFL in punt return yards with 582.  His return total for kick-offs as a rookie with New York was nothing to sneeze at either, with 577 yards.  He also acted as a running back, toting and receiving the ball for the Giants as a rookie.  In total, he put up a very impressive number of all-purpose yards with 1,807.  That was good enough to be the third highest number of all-purpose yards in the NFL that season.

Although his rookie season would be his finest statistically as a New York Giant, he did lead the NFL again in punt returns for his sophomore campaign with 467 yards.  And his all-purpose yards total number was once again impressive with 1,533, putting him number 6 overall in the NFL for the 1990 season.

Following the 1990 season, the Giants reached Super Bowl XXV, and Meggett would do is part in bringing New York the Championship.  In one of the closest Super Bowls ever, a 20-19 New York victory over the Buffalo Bills, Meggett returned two kickoffs for 26 yards, two punts for 37 yards, rushed the ball 9 times for 48 yards and caught the ball twice for 18 yards.

As a New York Giant over six seasons, Meggett racked up 2,230 punt return yards, 2,989 kick return yards, and 8,641 all-purpose yards.

Best New York Giants By The Numbers - 29

Although he was drafted by the Washington Redskins with pick number 123 in the 1953 NFL draft, Alex Webster wound up playing for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. His time above the border was brief however, as he returned to the States to play in the NFL for the New York Football Giants beginning in 1955.

As an NFL rookie, wearing jersey number 29, Webster made an immediate impact on the gridiron. He rushed for a hefty 634 yards and 5 TDs, averaging 5 yards per carry. He also hauled in 22 passes for 269 total yards and a TD.

His second season with New York would see his numbers increase in volume, if not average. He carried the rock for 694 yards and 7 TDs, averaging 3.9 yards per attempt. He also scored three times while catching the ball. That season would prove to be his peak from a touchdowns-scored perspective.

His rushing yardage peak would come in 1961 when he ran for 928 yards, averaging 4.7 yards per carry.

All told, in 10 years with the Giants, Webster put up some impressive offensive numbers while sporting jersey number 29.

- 4,638 yards rushing
- 3.9 yards per carry
- 2,679 yards receiving
- 11.2 yards per reception
- 39 rushing TDs
- 17 receiving TDs

Did you know.....that Webster was also a coach with the Giants, earning the 1970 UPI Coach of the Year award?

Best New York Giants By The Numbers - 28


28 seems to have been a common number worn by New York Giants' defensive backs.  And there certainly have been some good ones.  Everson Walls may not have had the longest career with the Giants in particular, but he certainly showed that he could play the game while with the team.

Coming over from the archrival Dallas Cowboys, Walls may have felt the need to endear himself to the fans of New York.  And with his play, he certainly earned their respect as a member of Big Blue.  


In 1990, Walls' first season with the New York Giants, he racked up a healthy 6 interceptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. Walls was a key component of the Giants' run to their second Super Bowl Championship as well, picking up an interception in their first playoff game that season.

He would play one more full season with the Jints, 1991, during which he would pick up another four picks, to go along with half a sack.

1992 saw him play in six regular season games for New York, with one INT, before he was let go, and subsequently signed by the Cleveland Browns.

Did you know.......that Walls started at safety for the first time in his career while with New York?
