9. Kerry Collins
How could anyone forget the journeyman Collins. He traveled around to multiple NFL teams but arguably put on the best stint of his career with the Giants.
In 2000, he led the Giants to Super Bowl XXXV, but they fell to the Baltimore Ravens. That Giants team was special, however they ran into a Ravens defense that was probably the greatest of all time. The loss doesn’t diminish the huge impact Collins had for the Giants.
The next year Collins set the single season passing record in Giants history, only broken by Eli Manning. Collins deserves a place on this list because he led the Giants to a Super Bowl. Not any quarterback can lead a team to the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl is a game known for the immortals and Collins proved a lot by getting there. The Giants went a whopping 12-4 that year and dominated many teams in their path. He deserves a lot of credit for what he accomplished with Big Blue.
