I understand, he is probably gone, but he doesn't deserve the thrashing he takes on these boards.
    I've never said what Osi is demanding either other than he wants to start and thinks he's a complete package DE which is what the link confirms. So if he believes he's an effective all around DE he is going to want to be paid like one. He's not an effective all around DE.

    they make a commercial about him and his 40 speed. yeah he shows it off every play. right passed the play. That is if he isnt totally faked by almost every single play option or action play. then he shows no pursuit whatsoever while he jogs behind the play. See ya bum.

    Osi is not the player he once was...we all agree on that, but stop disrespecting the guy calling him a bum. That's a 2 time superbowl champion your talking about. I didn't see anyone complaining when he was getting sacks / forced fumbles for all those years. Strahan also had a very public contract dispute / holdout...no one calls him a bum?

    Whatever, ....................his diminished production and dancing bear technique do not help this team. He had a great run with us but if it is time to move on, then it is time to move on. Go Blue!!
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Did Strahan ever get optional surgery right before the season started out of spite? Didn't think so.

    i don't think it was out of spite..but ur in title to ur own opinion. we came out of it with a lombardi trophy so who cares. I'm not knocking Stray...he is and always will be my Fav Giant ever. I am just using him as a comparison

    He was cleared to play before the season started by the Giants' medical staff yet opted to get the surgery anyway as his way of holding out. I highly doubt we would have seen much from Osi last season without the emergence of JPP, which was when Osi lost all of his leverage.
