If NY Giants fans needed something to get them going in fired up fashion, NY Giants legend Lawrence Taylor and running back Saquon Barkley have delivered in the best way imaginable. That’s because the two, joined by a handful of other current NY players, teamed up to reveal the Giants will be rocking the classic blue uniforms from the 80s/90s for a pair of games this season.

For two ‘legacy games,’ the G-Men indeed will be rocking the throwback jerseys that the team’s supporters love so much. Come Oct. 2 vs. Chicago and Dec. 4 against Washington, the Giants will be rocking said jerseys at MetLife Stadium. It will bring back countless memories for people, of course including some Super Bowl glory.

NY Giants announcing the return of the classic blue jerseys was epic

If anyone else is ready to run through a brick wall, you’re not alone there. Barkley is poised for a breakout year – everyone has been talking about that and it’s now up to No. 26 to get things done in that department. Will he deliver for head coach Brian Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, or will be the people who have been calling him out be on the money?

Big Blue supporters are praying to the football Gods he proves them wrong. With that said, Barkley has been showcasing some unreal swag this summer and his confidence is quite high. Things are only going to get boosted for him knowing that someone like Lawrence is in his corner as well.

Taylor is a man who needs no introduction, as he’s arguably the best defensive player in the history of the game. He’s No. 1 when it comes to the Giants and he’ll always be loved by people in New Jersey and New York. The fact that the Giants were able to get him to help out with the jersey announcement sure was sweet.
