7. Justin Tuck
Accolades: two-time Pro Bowler, two-time All Pro member, two-time Super Bowl champion
Justin Tuck, who recorded 60.5 sacks, 451 tackles and 18 forced fumbles, was a huge part for both of the NY Giants Super Bowl wins in 2007 and 2011. In the 2007 Super Bowl against the undefeated New England Patriots, Tuck racked up two sacks, six combined tackles and two tackles for loss. Tuck had a very similar performance in 2011, again, against the Patriots, taking Tom Brady down twice alongside three combined tackles and three tackles for loss.
In addition to this, Tuck was also great for the NY Giants in the regular season. For example, in Tuck’s nine-year tenure with the team, he had four double-digit sack seasons. He also had four seasons in which he racked up 60 or more tackles.
Whether it be the way he always turned up in the postseason, or his epic face mask, Tuck was a fan favorite among NY Giants supporters during his time with the team. It is unlikely that the NY Giants would have had the same amount of success without Tuck on the field.
