Former NY Giant Karl Nelson Talks Super Bowls and Beating Cancer [AUDIO]

On Monday night, while I was asking if anyone has ever gone to a Super Bowl, I spoke to a former Giant who not only played in one in 1986, but also broadcasted a Super Bowl game in 1990.

Karl Nelson joined the Giants in 1984 and played right tackle through 1988, which was quite a feat since he missed the 1987 season battling hodgkins disease. After retiring, Nelson joined the broadcast team. He was there for Jim Gordon’s final call on Scott Norwood’s missed field goal that secured the Giants 20-19 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

In the interview, Nelson discusses how the Giants came out of the locker room at halftime down 10-9 in 1986, and went on to beat the Denver Broncos 39-20. “It was the first time all year we didn’t make a single offensive adjustment.” He also talked about what it was like protecting Phil Simms, and his current work with “Oceans of Love,” which is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to helping Ocean County children with cancer and their families.
