    I wonder if that sack of Favre played into it at all???

    Even if he didn't have that sack, he'd still be the giants career sack leader (141.5 with favre sack removed compared to LT 132.5, not to mention Strahan didn't have a hand in the dirt in front of him to take up some OL blocks). If Strahan were a 3-4 LB, he probably would have had even more sacks than he did record...

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.

    Yes, but I rememeber at the time a lot of media heads were incensed and some of them may be voters.

    Rest assured, Strahan will eventually get in. It's just a matter of time or attempts.

    He got screwed. I didn't think he'd get in this year, but after seeing those that did, he clearly deserved it. I saw them all play and while good, Strahan deserved the nod over some of the others. I say it's the anti-NY vote and not wanting to put two former Giants, yeah I know Parcells was also a cowgirl, but is best remembered as a Giant.

    You may have something there.

    If I had to guess, they didn't want two Giants getting in at the same time (Parcells) or both DEs of the same generation getting in at the same time (Sapp).

    You may be right. It wasn't as if he revolutionized his position and had to get in on the 1st ballot like an LT. He will get in eventually. Probably next year.

    What's the deal with the Anti-NY thing anyway?
    I've felt that way for a long time.
