Doesn't help either that he is in the hall of fame. Especially when Strahan was involved in the conversation

I saw this too. Guy's a clown. He's proud of the accomplishments of his teammate (Rice) and that's fine. But he's praising him by tearing down someone else (Strahan) and that's not cool in my book. If you're going to praise Rice and say he deserves to be in the hall then do it, don't say he's better than another guy who's being considered.

Also, didn't Sapp go up against Detroit and Chicago twice per year, two teams that weren't making much noise during the years he played.......

Especially when Strahan was involved in the conversationI remember everyone was saying if they have to pick between the two they would choose Strahan. Everytime Sapp says something it seems he has an agenda. Just like he's been saying the Steelers defense is done now, When they were the "NUMBER 1 DEFENSE" last year. He's a terrible analyst and an idiot get him off T.V.

Different responsibilities are entailed on the strongside. As a former player (Hall of Famer, at that), it baffles me that Sapp would intentionally attempt to marginalize Strahan's illustrious career.

Being that about 7-8 guys get 10+ sacks rushing on the left side, and only about 2-3 guys get 10+ sacks rushing from the other end each year, completely negates what Sapp is saying about strahan. Being on the strong side makes you much easier to double team and stra consistently beat those while getting to the QB.

Complete nonsense.

He's probably bitter (like most NFL non-Giant fans and players) that Favre handed Strahan his sack record

Exactly. He can praise Rice all day, I don't blame him (and it's probably well deserved praise at that), but why rip on Stray in order to do it? My guess is that he has an axe to grind with Stray. It's immature.

Only a person who loves another can fight this much. Sapp is secretly saying "love me Stray".... Strahan can just relish in the fact that he's always on Warren's mind.

I still believe Strahan didn't get in the HOF on his first ballot because some piss ant voters can't overcome the Favre sack. I guess they forgot about the other 140 sacks he had in his career. I also say without any bias opinion (it's very difficult) Strahan was the better player compared to Sapp. Strahan was regarded as the best defensive end in the league for years, I would love to hear Sapp name one weakness in Strahan's game. I'll wait....
This article is utter garbage, just another loud mouth idiot (which fits Sapp very well) bashing a great player to shine a light on a former teammate. Rice was a solid football player, but he couldn't hold Strahan's jock strap.
I pray for the day when the microphone is no where near this mans mouth. From this Giants fan I say this to you Sapp. Go away...

When I snapped it back in place- it definitely didnt feel good lol

By the end of the week It was fine but it was very swollen. The inflammation took 6 months to go down on its own.

Tearing those ligaments are not fun. A DE having to fight through that injury that requires a ton of strength from your hands had to be a tough obstacle.

I never knew Strahan and Sapp had beef with each other. Sapp is most likely just jealous of Strahan's accomplishments. Sad. You got into the hall, and you STILL aren't satisfied.

Because other than Strahan the only other likely finalists this year at the DE position are Kevin Greene and Charles Haley.

Not sure where I justified his statement. But, if he's going to call out a HOF eligible member in order to support one of his teamates, then his choice of Strahan out of the 3 eligible DE's in 2013 makes sense. The other 2 arent 1st time balloters like Strahan is so, their chances of getting in this time are better. And, he has had beef with Strahan in the past so, I'm sure that chance to take one last jab was his motive.

Is it a comment that a respectable journalist/commentator/athlete/person would make? Absolutely not.

What he said was complete BS. If Rice was that good he shouldn't feel the need to tear down another player that he could be(and will be) sharing HOF with. Plain and simple.

I just don't think there's anything to make of it. Who gives a sh*t what Warren Sapp says? His comments have zero effect on the selection process nor do they take away from Strahan as a player and his accomplishments.

And he does have the right to say whatever he wants. Everyone else has the right to agree or disagree with it.

But, the reson he targeted Strahan and not anyone else makes sense.

I was just going to say that Sapp is the modern equivalent of the court jester (aka "Fool") in Medieval Europe palace courts. Paid strictly to be the buffoon. The only thing missing are the funny shoes, cap, and the bells. And the really funny thing is, it doesn't appear he realizes it. He actually thinks people take him seriously.

Sharpe and Sharper on NFLN sound like they have mashed potatoes in their mouths. Sharper seems to be working on improving his articulation a little bit, but Sharpe is worse than ever. And when he gets excited and starts talking faster? Yikes!

Of course, the tinfoil hat part of my brain keeps telling me that the reason strahan didn't get in was because john madden secretly blocked him. Why? "Brett Favre this, Brett Favre that"...

But then again, my inner conspiracy theorist makes skip bayless look sane and rational...

Sapp's annoying and I don't disagree, but calling Simeon Rice better than Strahan isn't completely blasphemous. I'd take Strahan still, but Rice was pretty darn good.

Plus, Rice was his teammate.

Sapp should keep his mouth shut though. He talks too much trash, especially for a retired player.

Breezely
06-20-2013, 06:30 PM
Sapp is about 300 lbs, and his ego is 200 lbs of that. In Sapp mind, he is the greatest defensive lineman ever. And he will hate or discredit anyone he feels is a threat to his ego. Yes. . . . .he was a great player but he wasn't that great that he can hate on everyone else.

penguinfarmer
06-20-2013, 06:43 PM
It was hardly about Simeon Rice as much as it was Sapp using it as an avenue to downtalk Strahan, especially when he goes out of his way with numerous fallacies. Strahan was LE by his third year, a position I don't think he'd downtalk the same with Deacon Jones or Reggie White. Regarding competition, it's not like New Orleans, Atlanta or Carolina were powerhouses against Tampa in their division. It's so sad that it's hilarious.

Using Sapp's logic then Reggie White, prolly the best defensive end of all time doesn't belong in the hall either because he played the same side as Strahan(mostly.)

The fact is Strahan won't just get in for his passrushing either. He was 1 of the best run defending DE's of all time. I would be interested to see what Sapp would have to say about Simeon Rice's run stopping ability because it was horrendous. In fact, he may have been the worst run stopping DE in the league. He ran himself out of the play more often then not.
