5. Little Giants. The Monday Morning Quarterback staffers had a fun read on their site yesterday that went through the best football movies of all time. Included was a film that is near and dear to the Big Blue faithful -- Little Giants. “What I liked most were the alternate uniforms,” Andy Benoit wrote. “Keep in mind, in October of ’94 the NFL had not fully gotten into allowing teams to wear a third set of pants or jerseys in the same season.
