Slightly ironic that Favre and Strahan leave in the same year.
I bet he wishes he would have retired last year.:nah: I still laugh at Tiki Barber for calling out Eli after retiring, then have the Giants win.
Tiki Barber: Addition by subtraction.
Anywho...great career for Strahan. Probably not the best of role models - but one helluva football player who put it all out there for 15 years. Will be interesting to see how he fares in the studio. Not exactly the type of person I'd picture for that role.
"O Michael Straaaaay-han! HOW-BOUT-DEM-COWBOYS???"
He's had one heck of a career, and he'll be missed (although it's time to turn the keys of leadership over to Osi Umineyora).
I somewhat follow the Giants as my dad is a big-time fan (that kinda happens when you're from the area), so at the time it came as kind of a surprise to me that Tiki retiring is the thing that brought the team together. Who would have figured that the 3-headed running back monster would have proved to be more effective than Tiki. In retrospect, though, it makes sense, as Tiki just doesn't seem to know when to shut up...
