Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Years later, former Jets great Mark Gastineau wants full credit for NFL’s single-season sack record

”It’s a good record and it took me a long time to get that,” he said. “It took a lot of work, a lot of work to get that record. So many years I worked my butt off to get it, and I finally got it, and it shouldn’t have been cheapened like it was. It’s like a tarnished record.”

Gastineau said he harbors no ill will toward Favre or Strahan, the former New York Giants star who has become a huge television personality.

”I just want to be recognized for the record,” Gastineau said. “You wouldn’t want your son getting a record like that. I don’t think it’s good for the NFL. It was never good for the NFL, and I’m surprised the NFL didn’t step in.”

Valentine’s View: I didn’t like Favre gifting Strahan with the record, either. Gastineau, though, just comes off as whiny here.

Witten could even end up with the Giants. Still, moving on to a new team for a year or two after a long career in one city rarely works out well for anyone. It’s why Eli Manning did the right thing by retiring.
