Storyline

John Tuggle, the 1983 NFL draft's Mr. Irrelevant, was anything but irrelevant to legendary coach Bill Parcells. The normally tough and gruff coach will guide us on an emotional journey as he recounts his own rookie season as the head coach of the New York Giants and the year he came to know this very special athlete who made his team against all odds. But only one year later, a rare and unbeatable form of cancer would change both John's and Coach Parcells' destinies leaving behind a lasting impact on teammates and the life of the coach who understands just how fragile life can be.

30 for 30 Shorts: The Irrelevant Giant (2013)

Legendary coach Bill Parcels sits down to talk about John Tuggle, the New York Giants last pick in the 1983 draft, which got him the now infamous name "Mr. Irrelevant." Expecting to be cut from the team before the season, Tuggle shocked everyone with his play but soon tragedy would take his life. Parcels is a pretty tough guy for those familiar with him and the sport of football. Seeing him get so choked up talking about Tuggle certainly backs up the words he's speaking about the man being such a great and strong person. This episode is certainly quite sad but it's also pretty uplifting as Parcels asks a pretty straight-forward question that I'm sure many people ask themselves and it's if you were to get gravely sick, would you be able to stay strong?
