Jeremy Shockey  
 

  • In only his 10th game in the NFL, Jeremy burned the Redskins for 11 catches and 111 yards. In terms of receptions, it was the third-best effort in Giants history. Tiki Barber holds the club record with 13 grabs in a game, followed by Mark Bavaro with 12.
  • Jeremy’s on-field antics irritate some old-school players. Former Giants linebacker Sam Huff was among those blasting him in the press.
  • On Miami’s list of career stats for tight ends, Jeremy ranks 6th in receptions (61), 6th in receiving yards (815), and tied for second in touchdowns (10).
  • At Miami, teammates called Jeremy the “football junkie” because he loved the game so much.
  • Jeremy’s #80 jersey is the top seller among Giants apparel in 2002.
  • During the 2002 season, Jeremy did a weekly spot with “Mike and the Mad Dog” on WFAN radio in New York. It was one of the most entertaining 10 minutes in all of sports—until the hosts canned him after he stood them up up one too many times.
  • Jeremy's best friend outside of the football world is former Yankees pitcher David Wells. They first met in 2003 at the Super Bowl in San Diego.
  • As a guest on the Howard Stern Show, Jeremy got into trouble when he made some negative comments about homosexuals. Jeremy later apologized publicly for his remarks. He found himself in simlar hot water a year or so later when he called Bill Parcells a "homo." Again, Jeremy issued an apology, and said he would be more sensitive about the impact of such remarks in the future.
  • Jeremy lists The Doors and Pink Floyd as his favorite music groups and The Godfather and Citizen Kane among his favorite movies.
  • Jeremy drives a Hummer2. He's also into antique "muscle" cars, and has plans to build a Shelby Cobra or a Chevy Corvette.
  • Jeremy's favorite show growing up was The Dukes of Hazzard. He owns an exact replica of the General Lee, the 1969 Dodge Charger driven by Luke and Bo.
  • Jeremy loves dogs. He has a Schnauzer (Chelsea), a fox terrier (Payton) and a boxer (Major).
