  • Michael Strahan Retires

    FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer reports that Michael Strahan has decided to retire.

    "It's time. I'm done," Strahan said, who wanted to let teammates know before minicamp. While Strahan will be remembered for his record 22.5 sack season and his big mouth, he's a Hall-of-Famer because he was also consistently strong against the run. Strahan is fifth-all time in sacks and could enter the Hall with buddy Brett Favre and Warren Sapp in five years. The Giants pass rush will suffer, but they are well equipped to move Justin Tuck outside and use Mathias Kiwanuka more as a pass rusher."

      Darn. The Giants have planned for it, though. Look for Kiwanuka to take Strahan's old job, and for Bryan Kehl to play SAM.

        Sh*t, I shouldn't have bought his book. He's probably going to re-release it with more pages.

            Saw that coming and I'm glad. All these great players usually stick around a year or two too many and like to see them leave while they're on top. Great career for this guy capped by a Super Bowl Victory

              I think Tuck will start at LE. Kiwi could move there on passing downs so they could move Tuck back inside.

                Strahan was always that guy we hated to like in Washington. So we're glad to see him go but the guy had a great career and will definitely be a HOFer.

                  Not willing to discount that theory, but I think they drafted Bryan Kehl for a reason. I don't know how well he can move to weakside, but I recall him playing there in mini camps. Either way, Kehl played strongside in college.

                    I'm glad he retired. What better way to go out on top than after ruining a bunch of cheaters perfect season. Good for Strahan.

                        Any chance of the Giants signing someone like Colvin now, or are they set? Seems like the're well prepared for this with guys like Renaldo Wynn signed and Kiwanuka or Tuck set to move to End... i thought he could have had another 10 sack year but cant fault him for bowing out while on top as it must be a good feeling...

                          I agree, he still would have been very productive. I think the Giants have been preparing for this since his drama last season. I doubt they need a guy like Colvin.

                            Although we will clearly miss Strahan we planned for this as best we could.

                            Kiwi will play SLB on regular downs, Kehl will play SLB on passing downs which is good since he played a lot more coverage than rushing plays as a 3-4 OLB in college. Basically the D-Line passing rotation will be Kiwi, Osi, Tuck and probably Alford who took Kiwi's place when he got injured.

                              Wouldn't it make more sense to just put Tuck at LE. I understand that Kiwanuka is bad at pass coverage but it's an aggressive style of defense where he is blitzing most of the time.
