The New York Giants have been so irrelevant for so long that they no longer hold the attention of one of the greatest players in franchise story. According to TMZ Sports, Hall of Fame linebacker and Giants legend Lawrence Taylor doesn’t follow the Giants anymore.
In a call with TMZ Sports, along with former teammate Ottis Anderson, Taylor made the shocking claim he had no idea who current head coach Joe Judge and quarterback Daniel Jones even were. He is so removed from the franchise that he was unaware that Eli Manning was not the starting QB anymore.
“Daniel Jones is the [what?]” Taylor said. “You mean to tell me Eli is not the quarterback no more?!? Get the f— out of here!”
At first, it was unclear if Taylor was joking or not.
“He doesn’t watch, I’m telling you,” Anderson said.”We were talking earlier and we were talking about [Dave] Gettleman and Joe Judge and he said, ‘Who? Joe Judge? You talking Joe Kid, the one that played Clint Eastwood?!'”
Since winning the Super Bowl in 2011, the Giants have qualified for the postseason just once, which was a loss to the Green Bay Packers.
The current team is just 4-8 on the season.
