Warren Sapp

Former Giants' DE Michael Strahan is a finalist once again for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and once again Warren Sapp, who was elected last year, is deriding Strahan's candidacy.

Neil Best of Newsday, quoting Sapp:

"I don't think his resume stacks up when you put Tony Dungy, Walter Jones, Marvin Harrison and Derrick Brooks up. Those are four first-ballot Hall of Famers...When you stack it up and he only has four straight Pro Bowls and a mythical sack record that y'all still walk around like it's something to be praised - I mean y'all have got to get off your high horse in New York and speak about the real...And when you really measure him up, he comes up short."
Strahan actually has better numbers than Sapp and has been to seven Pro Bowls, the same number as Sapp. Strahan responded to Sapp's comments Tuesday afternoon.

SNYGiants insider Ralph Vacchiano passed this along, via his Sulia page:

Michael Strahan's response to Warren Sapp saying he's overrated by NY media (via @nydnraiss): "I'm all hype. I lasted 15 years on all hype. Had 141 1/2 career sacks. All hype. I was always a starter. The coaches put me out there because that was hype. I played left end, that made me get sacks. Reggie White, he was hyped too. Didn?t he play left end? Yeah, I was all hype." #NYG
Ralph also tweeted this comment from Giants CEO John Mara...

A few days ago, impending HOFer Warren Sapp stated his that his former teammate, Simeon Rice, was just as good as Michael Strahan and that if Strahan goes into the Hall of Fame so should Rice. Silly.

First, Tiki Barber called Sapp "an idiot", and now, in a indirect way, Giants' Senior Vice President of Communications Pat Hanlon has responded to Sapp's dis on Strahan.

It's irritating enough that Warren Sapp is going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame ahead of Giants' DE Michael Strahan, but does he have to kick Michael every step along the way?

Don't get me wrong, Sapp is a HOFer, and so will be Strahan, but when it comes to class, Sapp is showing little in his post-playing career.
