CBS Sports lists Giants 'Franchise Five'

Through the course of NFL history, the Giants have become one of the winningest franchises in NFL history. The Giants have won eight NFL Championship titles in its history -- four in the pre-Super Bowl era (1927, 1934, 1938, 1956) and four in the Super Bowl era (1986, 1990, 2007, 2011) -- ranking third among all NFL franchises. The organization has also made more championship appearances than any other team in the NFL with 19 in total.

The Giants have also had some tremendous individuals represent the organization over the years. Twenty-nine Giants players have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, while four players have taken home the regular season MVP award.

Important changes made to the Quest Diagnostics Training Center

The Giants' COVID-19 Task Force has been working hard to make the Quest Diagnostics Training Center as safe as possible. Many important changes have been made for the safety of Giants employees in accordance with guidelines from the CDC, NFL, National Institute of Health, and the State of New Jersey.

The Giants began a slow, steady reopening of the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Wednesday. About 15-20 members of the organization returned. That number included general manager Dave Gettleman and members of his football administration staff, not coaches, as well as a small number of business, operations and medical staff. Team president John Mara was also in the office. Not all of them will be in the office on a daily basis.

The number of employees in the facility will continue to increase slowly over the course of the next couple weeks with more business people filtering in.

For the time being, those employees who can continue to work from home will do so.

"We have been working diligently over the last couple months to prepare for coming back to the facility, the Quest Diagnostics Training Center," said Ronnie Barnes, senior vice president of medical services and head athletic trainer. "The primary focus has been to return our employees safely. And so everything that we have been doing has been related to the safety of our employees and how we can get back to work as safely as possible.

"We're all happy to be back. We've been waiting for a long time. The Giants' COVID-19 Task Force has been working hard to make this facility as safe as possible. We've made a lot of changes; those are all for [employees'] safety and they're very important. We are following the CDC guidelines, the guidelines from the NFL and guidelines from the National Institute of Health, as well as the state's protocols."
