    there was no staged sack

    Brett knew Mike needed one for the record
    they are friends
    he saw him coming and laid down

    nothing was premeditated

    Stra may have wrangled him even if he didn't play possum

    who cares about the stupid record anyway.

    Stra was awesome.....go back and watch film on how he stopped the run

      No way my friend.

      They were running out the clock. they had just run 2 running plays into the line. In a normal situation they would have run another run into the line. That sack was a gift to Strahan.
      It was so obvious for God's sake. All of the sudden Favre is going to r take the snap and run to the right and fall down? C'mon YA. You are DEFINITELY better than this.

      And I'm not saying anything about Strahan as a player. The guy was great and a deserving HOF'r. I'm just speculating on why some voters didn't vote him in on the first try.

        If your theory is correct, Favre would have had to tell his O-Line to pretend to block Strahan, then allow him through, just so Brett could lay down. I don't buy it..... If that had happened, somebody in the huddle would have already spilled the beans.

            Oh come on. Favre did a play fake and you could see him looking for Strahan.
            And 88 didn't even try to block him.
            So either it was the dumbest call AND the most poorly executed play in NFL history OR it was a gift to Strahan.

            You know the theory about the simplest explanation.........being the correct one.

            And listen to Papa's call, he reported it as a gift from Favre to Strahan because it was so obvious as it happened.

              Did you not see the play? The Packers Oline DID pretend to block Strahan...the TE barely even brought his hands up to block Strahan. The TE even stepped inside to LET STRAHAN IN.

                In know. Its no disgrace for us Giants fans to admit to the obvious.
                WE look foolish to other fans when we cling to the ridiculous notion that the play was legit.

                  It has always felt more likely to me that Farve set that up all on his own.

                  Remember, by all accounts, it was an audible to a naked bootleg. It looked to me like 88 thought the call was for Farve to go to his left, and therefor had little reason to even touch a Strahan going up field. I cannot understand either the roll to the left or the calling of a pass play, but

                  Strahan got to Farve first.

                  If it was a setup, and the play was called to the right, then it took at least 3 packers* to commit and keep their mouths shut. Plus the other 8 guys who would have at least asked WTF at the end of the play. Much, much harder to believe.





                  *Minimum, unless you believe that the play called for a TE to block Strahan 1 on 1 and nobody questioned this.

                    Its definitely possible that Strahan wasn't in on it. But the play was bogus.

                      I don't care what happened on that play. So Strahan gets the 2nd most sacks in the history of a season. So what. One season doesn't make a hall of famer and Strahan has a career that should have easily pushed him over the edge with Sapp.

                      I'm not saying Sapp doesn't deserve it too, because he definitely does. But he was in no way better than Strahan and Strahan had an overall longer and more productive career.

                      Sapp is jealous of everything Strahan has. Strahan is on national television weekday morning and sunday mornings. Sapp is stuck on the NFL network like all the other ex-talking head players. He is a gimmick and he knows it. Strahan surpassed him on the field with his records and at this point has surpassed him in the admiration of their peers.

                      Keep talking Sapp. They only reason people heard you is because you said the name Strahan.

                          The HOF voters took 100 years to put cris carter and parcells. The HOF voters can go screw themselves. JJ Watt had a better year this year than all of saps years combined. There are 15 d line men I'd take before sapp.

                              I am only saying that I would be surprised if many voters held it against him....because the play WAS bogus. It may or may not been of his doing, but that's secondary in the view of some.

                                If scouts say that they're looking for the next sapp then that explain so many bad rookie DTs.
