Season Recap: 1984 New York Giants
With Phil Simms enjoying his first full season at quarterback and linebacker Carl Banks emerging as a rookie, the Giants earned the NFC Wild Card playoff berth, finishing with a 9-7 mark and second place in the NFC East. Simms set three single-season club records with 286 completions in 533 attempts for 4,044 yards. The Giants knocked off the Los Angeles Rams 16-13 in that wild card game, then bowed to the eventual Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers 21-10 in the divisional playoff. Taylor, Carson and Haynes were again named to the Pro Bowl, while head coach Bill Parcells was named NFC East Coach of the Year and five rookies—Karl Nelson, Gary Reasons, Carl Banks, Perry Williams and Bobby Johnson–were named to the All-NFL Rookie team.
