It was inevitable, since Favre isn't around to give him sacks, INTs, etc.

Default Strahan calls it quits

Coming off Super Bowl win, Strahan to retire

Quote:
The New York Giants will begin their road to a defense of their Super Bowl title when mini-camp begins on Wednesday. That defense, however, will be attempted without the services of their team leader, Michael Strahan

Cant say this surprises me .....

Might as well end your career on a high note. He's got plenty of opportunities for a career on TV although it will be hard to have to look at that gap between his teeth during the pre-game show.

Mark Gastineau and Deacon Jones think Favre and Strahan are punks.

That was a rather pathetic way to break the single season sack record.

But you can't really blame Strahan for that. It was Favre who took the dive.

Didn't Vince curl up like a little kitten and give Mario a gimme sack, last season? That's not on Mario, I'm sure he would have preferred to drive Young into the ground. I'm counting that as a sack, and I'll let Strahan keep his.

I'm not disagreeing with you here, I just thought Mr.-Marky-10-to-20 calling someone a punk is hilarious.

I agree. Favre did Strahan one final favor in the playoffs this past season, throwing the game-losing INT. So Strahan would definitely have missed Favre had he continued playing

He was still one of the most feared pass rushers of our era regardless of your take on him. If Mario can turn out to be the way Strahan was, Houston fans will have alot to cheer for over the next several years !!

I don't disagree with you, and I've never advocated an asterisk by Strahan's record. It is what it is.

But, my statement still stands, that as sacks (and records) go, that was a cheesy way to set such a worthy halmark. Deacon Jones said he would have laid the wood on Favre to make him appreciate the record and pay for taking a dive without so much as a whimper of resistance. But Deacon was ruthless that way, so I'd never compare any of today's players to his mean streak.

If the inventor of the head slap said it, I believe it. But in today's game, Deacon would have lost the sack & picked up a 15-yard personal foul penalty. Different times, different approach.
