Simms was George Young's first draft choice in 1979 and he played his entire 15-year with the Giants. He overcame a series of injuries early in his career to become the most productive quarterback in team his-tory. Simms holds the Giants career records for pass attempts (4,647), completions (2,576), yards (33,462) and touchdowns (199). He was 95-64 (.597) as a regular season starter and 6-4 in the playoffs. But Simms is best remembered for his almost flawless performance in leading the Giants to victory in Super Bowl XXI. He completed 22 of 25 passes – including all 10 of his throws in the second half – for 268 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 39-20 rout of the Denver Broncos. In one of the easiest votes in history, he was selected the game's Most Valuable Player.
