 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.

Packer-Giant Rivalry - 1950-59
The 1950s was an outstanding decade for the Giants, but it wasn’t so kind to the Packers.  The Giants won the NFL title in 1956, while the Packers didn’t come close with three different coaches.  New York played in the Greatest Game Ever Played while the Packers never played in a game that mattered.  The Giants and the Packers played three times during the fifties with the Giants winning twice.
