The award, which is named after late Giants General Manager George Young, is given to the player who demonstrates consistent cooperation and availability with members of the New York media over the course of an entire season.

Guard Kevin Boothe came in second in the voting, while cornerback Prince Amukamara finished third. In total, 10 players received votes.

Previous winners of the award include safety Antrel Rolle (2012), wide receiver Victor Cruz (2011), defensive tackle Barry Cofield (2010), defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka (2009), quarterback Eli Manning (2008), defensive end Justin Tuck (2007), wide receiver Plaxico Burress (2006), running back Tiki Barber (2005), quarterback Kurt Warner (2004), wide receiver Ike Hilliard (2003), quarterback Kerry Collins (2002) and offensive lineman Lomas Brown (2001).

Players can only win the award once in their Giants career, so all previous winners are ineligible to receive votes.

    How does Antrel Rolle not win that every year?
    He’s a media guy’s (or gal’s) dream
    Always dropping quotes like at 0-4 when he said the team would win out, or after SD when he said there was a lack of heart on the team
    TT is undoubtedly a good guy and a great comeback story, but I never hear him dropping any good lines on the press

    I brought up the height of Eli’s targets last night. As I tend to do, I started tangentally thinking about other things.

    Like how speaking of targets, Jernigan showed he could play in this league when given actual reps, but he was buried for years.

    So much so that earlier this year, the Giants signed Ramses Barden.

    Who was certainly tall and fit the bill in that department.

    But proved he couldn’t be relied upon.

    Remember when we were arguing whether or not he cost us the Philly game?

    Holy sh|t, that was Week 4 of last year. This bad dream has been going on for over a year.

    Forget Barden, as I told my wife at the conclusion of last week’s OT winner by Josh Brown, we make the playoffs last year if Brown is our kicker in Philly and has enough leg to reach from 51 yards. So there’s that consolation.
