Short Film Saturday: The Irrelevant Giant

If you follow this blog closely, you’ll know that I love ESPN’s 30 for 30 films. One aspect of these films I have not gotten into are the shorts, until now.

I saved the most emotionally wrenching of these shorts I saw until last. This is the story of John Tuggle. The last player drafted in 1983, the so-called “Mr. Irrelevant” who fought his way onto the Giants team and ultimately was one of the inspirations behind the Giants first Super Bowl run.
