Spin: Weatherford bounced around the NFL for several years before landing with the Giants for 4 years, where he made a name for himself. Yes, it wasn’t hard to make a name for himself replacing Matt Dodge, but Weatherford was fantastic in his career with the Giants, with his most notable game coming in Super Bowl XLVI, where he had multiple punts inside the 20, including his first one, where he pinned the Patriots inside the 5 yard line, which resulted in teammate Justin Tuck pressuring Tom Brady to ground the football in the end zone, which led to a safety.

 

Steve Weatherford was one of a select few players to play for the Jets and Giants during his career. Weatherford made it known what he thought of the Giants when he said that they were the class of the NFL and the best run organization in the business. Weatherford always had a smile on his face and played with 100% every time he took the field. A true class act in every sense of the word. Once A Giant Always A Giant.
