    The main point was you dont have to be a hall of famer to put up big sack numbers.
    I'm obviously missing something. He was an everydown player bar the first couple of weeks because only because he wasn't fit enough to last the pace because he had been sitting out instead of being in the gym and on the field during the summer so was a bit rusty.

    He has more sacks than Lawrence Taylor as well.

Plus coverage contributes to sacks along with having talent beside you to draw double teams and/or help. I would feel better about him in there if he had some outstanding tackle totals (complete player) and more fumbles forced/recovered. Mark anderson will be top 10 in sacks when his career is through, but he is a 1 dimensional player who benefits from harris/wale/brown also being on the line.

    I am NOT comparing andersons talent to strahans, its a similiar situation though
    Did you just say Mark Anderson will be top 10 in sacks when his career is through? Ok... I couldn't find the stats for the top 10 all time players in sacks but 1) Bruce Smith 200 2) Reggie White 198 3) Kevin Greene 160 sacks.

    Anderson has what 17 after 2 season. I don't see him getting over 100 sacks unless he sticks around without injuries and a constant motor for over 10 years as a starter in the NFL.

    you are right though, he is a lock, just like chris long #1 in the draft was a lock.
    I too think he is a lock to make it even with an "overrated stat" being the main reason why. He has been dominating OTs and getting to QBs consistantly for years. Not an easy thing to do over a long period of time.

    He didnt earn the single season sack record, favre laid down for him. Thats similar to feeling up your sister and bragging to your friends that you got some. Player of the year is more of a name recognition than anything to do with stats, and there is more to playing defense than sacks. He will probably get in anyways. I also never said he wasnt good, or better than the bears DE's when he was in his prime, but at this point in his career he is not really worth mentioning.

    Him and Tiki got along? hmmm... thats news to me.
    LOL

    Michael Strahan is one of the most popular members of the team amongst his peers. The only person he never saw eye to eye with was Tom Coughlin and that may have changed. Cedric Benson doesn't deserve to be mentioned alongside Strahan.

    I think he retires anyway.

    Yes. Coughlin is a biatch and Strahan is run down.

    I think he retires unless Coughlin eases up on training camp requirements.

    Players that do this just want the attention and for teams to beg for them to come back. True, the Giants are pretty well prepared to lose him, so he should step aside.
    Strahan is much better than anyone we have. I love Ogun but Strahan is a HOFer and still has game.
