GIANT CHEESEHEADS!
 The Giant-Packer rivalry and the former Giants 
           who helped the Packers become champions.
    
    

The Giants and Packers have been playing each other since 1928.  Green Bay leads the series 31-25-2.  The rivalry was one of the best of the NFL's pre-Super Bowl Era.  The 23 Giant Cheeseheads are players and coaches who came to Green Bay after being associated with the New York Football Giants, or through a special connection between New York and Green Bay.  Their impact on Packer history is significant.  Eight Giant Cheeseheads are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame* and ten are in the Packers' Hall of Fame.
