Future Hall of Famer Andy Robustelli leads the Giants in a workout session at Yankee Stadium -- home to some of the greatest moments in NFL history, including the 1958 championship game between the Giants and the Baltimore Colts. (Ever-after known as "The Greatest Game Ever Played, the battle ended when the Colts won in sudden death overtime.) "Players today have contracts that pay them to train year-round," Grier says. "So they can concentrate on making themselves stronger and tougher and faster. In our day, we practiced to learn the plays and to keep our bodies in shape. But we weren't involved in weight-training and those kinds of things to make our bodies tough."
