Something Nice

Former general manager Ernie Accorsi will be inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame tomorrow. You may remember that it was Accorsi who built the Giants' 2000 Super Bowl team and then handed over a well-stocked club to then-rookie GM Jerry Reese for the 2007 Super Bowl championship year.

Accorsi, a former sportswriter for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Baltimore Sun, is most known for his nine years with the Giants. But the Hershey (Pa.) High graduate also served as GM of the Colts and Browns after working in the sports information departments of St. Joseph's University and Penn State.


RB Ahmad Bradshaw was out of his boot and back in practice this morning, right on schedule to play Sunday. The only ones out of practice were DT Chris Canty (calf), LB Michael Boley (knee), and CB Aaron Ross (hamstring).



  1. Ernie Acorsi is the second coolest Ernie I know after Ernie Banks.

  2. There's also Bert and Ernie, Ernie Borgnine and Ernie "lights out" Shaver and who can forget Ernie Holmes of the Steel Curtain defense.

  3. Ernie...Do you think it is a possibility when Ross comes back that he could be moved to safety this season? Webster & Thomas are fine. We need an upgrade from Bad...Bad....CC Brown...the baddest man....( sorry got carried away )
