NFL America's Game: 1986 Giants (Super Bowl Xxi)
- Genre: Sports
- Release Date: 1/13/2016
Bill Parcells has coached many great players over his NFL career, yet only a select few have been allowed to enter his inner circle. These are his guys. A Parcells guy is usually someone you don't have to worry much about. He's reliable, productive, and smart. Even if he plays like a star, he rarely acts like one. The 1986 Giants had a few Parcells guys. Outside linebacker Lawrence Taylor collected 20.5 sacks that season and won the NFL MVP Award, the first defensive player to do so since 1971. Joe Morris, a 1,500 yard rusher, was a Parcells favorite. Harry Carson, the vocal middle linebacker, and Mark Bavaro, a reserved tight end, were Parcells men, too. Quarterback Phil Simms was another matter. In eight years with the Giants, Simms had been maligned by the media and the fans for being good, but seldom great. Even a 14-2 regular season did not silence Simms critics, or fully satisfy the demands of his head coach. Then, in Super Bowl XXI against Denver, Simms became the ultimate Parcells player, passing with a degree of precision unmatched in the big games history. Join NFL Films as they retell the story of the 86 Giants, the team that began the Parcells legend. Americas Game uses exclusive interviews from the coach himself, Simms and Taylor to reminisce about Big Blues first Super Bowl championship.
