It is all about Michael Strahan on Saturday night as the former New York Giants great is one of seven players to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Use this as your open thread to discuss Strahan's enshrinement. TV coverage on both ESPN2 and NFL Network begins at 7 p.m. ET.
Big Blue View has, of course, been covering the Strahan enshrinement from several angles.
- Strahan by the numbers
- Who will be the next Giants in the Hall?
- Strahan mentoring Damontre Moore
- Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony TV listings
- Tom Coughlin talks about Strahan
- Remembering Strahan's career
Use this as your open thread to discuss the enshrinement ceremony. We will try to update throughout with tweets and quotes from Strahan. Later, perhaps we can take a full look at Strahan's acceptance speech. Strahan will be the last of the enshrinees to speak.
