New York Giants' news, 1/10: Michael Strahan a Hall of Fame finalist

Michael Strahan - Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

New York Giants' headlines for Friday, 1/10/14.

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! We begin this morning by congratulating former Giants' defensive end Michael Strahan, named Thursday night as one of the 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014. Let's hope Hall of Fame voters right last year's wrong, when they left Strahan out of the Class of 2013. It seems unfathomable that Strahan won't be voted in this time around.

Now, let's look at other stories making news around the Giants.

The New York Post reports that the Giants would have fired Kevin Gilbride as offensive coordinator had he not retired on his own. Co-owner John Mara basically admitted as much during his appearance on WFAN Thursday, saying "He retired and fortunately it didn't come to any type of situation where he had to be forced out." [Full coverage of radio appearances by Mara and GM Jerry Reese].

Ernie Palladino of WFAN offers his thoughts on who the Giants should hire as Gilbride's replacement.

How badly did the Giants suffer from injuries during 2013? The Dallas Morning News reports that the Giants lost a league-high 91 games by starters due to injury, 26 of those on the much-maligned offensive line.
