The New York Giants recently announced the newest franchise members to join its revered Ring of Honor. Established in 2010 with an inaugural class of 30, the Ring of Honor recognizes many of the Giants who have had the most profound impact on the organization, both on and off the field.

Tom Coughlin, Justin Tuck, and Ernie Accorsi will enter the Ring of Honor on November 14, during halftime of the Giants’ Monday Night Football match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals. Their names will join 39 others proudly displayed above each sideline during home games at MetLife Stadium.

The careers of all three honorees intersected to usher in a golden era for the New York Giants, which included winning both Super Bowl XLII in 2008 and Super Bowl XLVI in 2012. A highly experienced GM who amassed nearly four decades of experience, Ernie Accorsi served as the Giants’ general manager for nine years, during which he hired head coach Tom Coughlin. One year later, in 2005, Coughlin drafted Justin Tuck, a defensive end who now boasts the sixth-highest sack total in Giants history. Although Accorsi retired at the end of the 2006 season, the team presented him with a championship ring when they won the Super Bowl the following year. Just four years later, Justin Tuck was captain of the team that, with Tom Coughlin’s guidance, claimed another Super Bowl victory.
