Greatest Giants Players in Super Bowl History
By Neal Lynch
CB – Corey Webster, Super Bowls XLII, XLVI
CB – Aaron Ross, Super Bowls XLII, XLVI
Bothe Webster and Ross are the only two corners to play in two Super Bowls. While neither got interceptions or tallied too many tackles, they were able to limit the damage in the passing game. Unfortunately, there aren’t many defensive stats from the Super Bowls XXI, XXV, and XXXV. All I know is Jason Sehorn got burned by Brandon Stokely in XXXV, so he’s automatically disqualified.
- Elvis Patterson – had a pick in XXI (returned for -7 yards)
FS – Gibril Wilson, Super Bowl XLII
SS – James Butler, Super Bowl XLII
Butler had 10 solo tackles while Gibril contributed a handful more. They were also able to keep Randy Moss from Randy Mossing all game, a marked improvement from when Moss burned the Giants deep in their regular season meeting.
- Deon Grant – XLVI
- Kenny Phillips – XLVI
The vaunted three safety look paid off as Grant and Phillips made sure they Gronk didn’t spike the Giants.
