There is a long list of candidates and for you older folks, this will be a much harder decision than it will be for a youthful chap like myself. I will tell you why I love Michael Strahan. Who is your favorite?
Growing up I absolutely loved Dave Meggett telling my father he was "my hero." I dont know why I was a little boy.... Now that I am older and realize he was a child molesting piece of trash, I have moved on.
I will have to say that my favorite Giant of all time has to be Michael Strahan. I started off as a die hard Giants fan during some rough times. While all the kids my age were defecting to Dallas, I stayed True Blue and went through some tough years in the 90's. I grew up watching Michael Strahan absolutely dominate no matter who was blocking him. Double teams, triple teams, fullbacks, runningbacks, chipping tight ends, pulling guards, fast qbs, it did not matter nothing stopped him. He was truly the only dominant player that the Giants have had since I have understood the game of football the way I do now.
He also had an extremely hard to hate personality, especially if you were a Giants fan. He kept it PG for his whole career, but somehow managed to be a PG tough guy. Remember the year we won the super bowl and he ate that sandwhich during a post game interview after a bad loss? "I wanna see your face when you ask me this question!" Or when he said after the Cowboys game about TO, "Maybe he and Crayton can get some popcorn when they watching us from home next week" Im sure there is older stuff he did in the media that some of you more seasoned fans can remember, but those are the recent two that stick out on my mind. And then you got week 1 against the Redskins in 2008 when he came running out of the big blow up Lombardi trophy. I was there in the stadium and is was EFFIN awesome. Even now he bleeds blue as a sportscaster and we all see him every week so I wont go into what he does now. He is a regular celebrity filling in for Regis and all that.
That man will forever be welcomed in Giants stadium for as long as he lives, and the Maras need to seriously consider retiring number 92 for the New York Giants because I NEVER want to see another name on a jersey with number 92.
