should have retired it yesterday..
RAISE THE 9-2 MUHFU**AS
I think that, in addition to the ring of honor, you have special "number" ceremonies for the players that REALLY deserve it for their contributions, but not necessarily officially retiring the number, just leaving it out for a while and re-issue it several decades down the line.
I don't care if the D-line has to wear numbers in the 30's (i know this can't happen) Strahan absolutely deserves his number retired. He's given a lot more then his play on the field to this franchise. My all time favorite Giant
