Stacy Ladell Robinson (February 19, 1962 – May 8, 2012) was a professional American football wide receiver in the NFL for the New York Giants.[1]

Robinson's most notable game was in week 13 of the 1986 season, when the Giants were playing the 49ers on Monday Night Football. The Giants trailed 17-0 at halftime, but scored three touchdowns in the third quarter to win the game. Robinson caught the second touchdown, a 34-yard pass from Phil Simms, but he made an incredible grab[2] on a 49-yard pass from Phil Simms, down to the 1-yard line, to set up the Giants' final score. He finished with 5 catches for a career-high 116 yards receiving as the Giants won 21-17.[3] The Giants went on to win Super Bowl XXI that season over the Denver Broncos, and Robinson caught three passes for a team high 62 receiving yards in the big game.[4]

Death[edit]

Robinson died of Multiple myeloma.[5]
