Dude took Kerry Collins and blanked the Moss/Culpepper Vikings at their peak en route to a Super Bowl appearance.  Maybe they would have made more than an appearance if they hadn't run into one of the 3 greatest defenses in league history.

I just remember my dad in the den screaming at this guy. As a Giants fan he was just insane like all the rest.

Fassel was a damn good coach. Thanks for all the football.

I'll take that bet.  A year of Fark that he died of a heart attack while under sedation at the hospital.

There is not a more "WTF IS HAPPENING?!?!?!" moment than that game.  Saw the whole thing from beginning to end.

All of the Giant legends were there, fans were bonkers.  I was just hoping that the Giants would keep it respectable against that overpowering Vikings offense.

That game is the embodiment of the classic Mike Tyson(?) quote, "Everyone's got a plan until they get punched in the mouth."

The Vikes got punched in the mouth and never recovered.

The beating by the Ravens in the Superb Owl was worse but no one was getting by Baltimore that year. Good coach, stayed a season too long (which usually happens to every HC).
