Strahan began his career with the Giants as a second-round draft pick in 1993, Lawrence Taylor and Phil Simms' last season, and ended it with a Super Bowl championship in 2008.

It's been a relatively quiet day around Devils-related social media in regards to the Hall of Fame induction of Scott Niedermayer.

Whether it's that he's a thing of the past, or people don't forgive him for leaving, his induction on Monday night is exactly what he deserves. The four-time Stanley Cup champion was not only a great Devil, but one of the best defensemen in NHL history.

According to Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record (who is in Canton this weekend for the Hall of Fame induction ceremony), Giants head coach Tom Coughlin will be joined by several members of the Mara family in a show of support for former Giants head coach Bill Parcells, who is a member of this year's HOF class....

Team president and co-owner John Mara told The Record that his mother and Coughlin would be among those on a private plane scheduled to leave?Teterboro?Airport immediately following Giants' practice that afternoon.

"We'll give Tom some time to shower," John Mara said with a laugh. "As far as my mother, I asked her the other day if she wanted to go and she said, 'Of course.'

Below is the second half of our debate over whether Patrik Elias is worth of induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. If you missed the first part by guest blogger Mike McCabe, go here. Also, this was supposed to run Tuesday, but Martin Brodeur got in the way of that. Apologies for the delay and as always, sound off in the comments with your thoughts...

Patrik Elias is not a Hall of Famer. I'm sorry, but he's not. He is a Devils icon and he deserves to have his jersey retired. If the Devils ever decide to install a team Hall of Fame at the Prudential Center, Elias should be one of the inaugural members. But Elias is not a Hall of Famer.

Admittedly, this is a bit of a staunch view and I openly admit that when it comes to Halls of Fame, I have strict standards that I believe should be followed. In fact, if, for some reason currently beyond my grasp, someone grants me the right to vote someone into a Hall of Fame, be it local, national or international, I will likely be one of those ridiculed for being a hardass. But that doesn't change the fact that Elias is not a Hall of Famer.

I'm a little bittersweet about yesterday's Hall of Fame announcements, but like any subjective process, it's not perfect. Former Giant coach Bill Parcells made it in while DE Michael Strahan did not.

Congrats to Bill. No worries for Michael, who had to be disappointed, but think of the upside: He can gain election next year when the Super Bowl is held here.

Is Eli Manning a Hall of Famer?

I know, such a silly argument. Considering Eli Manning will play at least six more seasons, and already has two Super Bowl MVPs on his mantle, this is a topic to tackle when you're bored. Eli has a lot of football left and plenty of records to rewrite along with accolades to collect. Another Super Bowl win would surely seal it for him, too.

Former teammate and ESPN studio analyst Tim Hasselbeck discusses whether Eli Manning is a Hall of Famer.

We're gonna take a page out FOX News' book and say on this next topic: We report, you decide.

FOXSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock writes that Giants' head coach Tom Coughlin is not Pro Football Hall of Fame fodder and his decisions last Sunday in Philadelphia sealed that:

Coughlin?s coaching cost the Giants a valuable road win. Sunday?s game demonstrated exactly why Coughlin isn?t a Hall of Fame coach. He has never built and/or guided the best team in football. He?s coached two teams that have backed into the playoffs and gotten hot at the right time. Coughlin?s resume pales in comparison to Jimmy Johnson, Tom Flores, Mike Shanahan and George Seifert. Johnson, Flores, Seifert and Shanahan ? all two-time Super Bowl winners ? are not in the Hall of Fame. In fact there?s only one two-time-winning, two-time-appearing Super Bowl coach in Canton. Vince Lombardi.

Bill Parcells, the man responsible for resurrecting several NFL franchises - including this year's two Super Bowl participants - was shunned by Pro Football Hall of Fame voters today.

This year's inductees are: center Dermontti Dawson, defensive end/linebacker Chris Doleman, defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy, running back Curtis Martin, tackle Willie Roaf and veteran selection Jack Butler, who played cornerback for the Steelers in the 1950's.

Both the Giants' Tom Coughlin and New England's Bill Belichick are direct descendants of Parcells' coaching tree. ?Both men had high praise for their old boss this week.

Tom Gulitti met up with Scott Niedermayer in Los Angeles before the Devils took on the Kings Tuesday. He was drafted in 1991 3rd overall by the Devils. Niedermayer stayed with the Devils until 2005 to sign with the Anaheim Ducks to play with his brother Rob. Niedermayer was a huge part of the reason why the Ducks won the Stanley Cup in 2007. Niedermayer will have his number 27 retired by the Devils on December 16th against the Dallas Stars. It seems very likely that Niedermayer will be in the Hockey Hall of Fame. He says that if he does make the Hall of Fame he wants to go in as a New Jersey Devil where he spent most of his career. Definitely give this interview a read.

When honoring Aaron Glenn's career with the New York Jets, fans should also walk away with a new understanding of professional football and ? most importantly ? life.

Forget every clich? about size and how big a man must be for a successful NFL career, because talent knows no size; and don't hurry to apply the 'bust' label to a man's name, because every set back is also a learning opportunity.

"Good Guy" Feagles May Get Long-Awaited Distinction

The NFL has had some great punters. In the 1970's there was Raiders' Ray Guy, who could boot the ball to the moon. He is considered the forerunner of all things punting in this league, and is the odds-on favorite to become the first punter to earn enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Except, it hasn't happened yet.

Guy has been eligible for enshrinement since 1991 but has never garnered enough votes to gain entrance. The collective school of thought is that if Guy does not make the Hall of Fame, then no punter should.
