Did you know that Spider was born in '43 and was 43 years old when he died?
I have to tell you this story...I went to North Texas State U. in 1969 - '73. I took a coaching football class taught by Fred McCain, a funny old football coach at NTSU. I asked him about Spider, being one of my favorite Giants (along with Homer as well :)). He said, "Carl was some type of player. The thing about Carl was he had soo much heart. He thought he could cover Jesus Christ on a down and out! We played Tulsa who had an All American receiver named Howard Twilly. Carl covered him one on one. Twilly caught one pass and Carl caught two that game." If you find a Spider jersey let me know. I think you're going to have to make one up yourself.Me and some other New Yorkers would go to the Cotton Bowl to see the Giants play the Cowboys. We made a banner out of a bed sheet we displayed there which read "Dallas 4 - 0 and then Along Came Jones".
