Michael Strahan Selected to Pro football Hall of Fame; Warren Sapp Can’t be Happy

Michael Strahan hall of fame 2014 warren sapp

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The latest drama in the NFL was between two legendary pass-rushers who are both too big for their britches. For whatever reason, Warren Sapp thought it necessary to say that Michael Strahan, who holds the NFL single-season sack record, doesn’t belong in the Hall of Fame. Ironically, Strahan is the headliner of a group of seven players who will be inducted in the 2014 class. Needless to say, there will likely be some sort of shot fired at Sapp by Strahan in the near future.

Sapp has publicly belittled Strahan’s record, which has been challenged many times over the past few seasons, while the record-holder responded by saying (paraphrasing): a lion doesn’t pay attention to the opinion of a lamb.

While both men have acted like spoiled children in this debate, Strahan definitely gets the trump card because of the record and he has just as many Super Bowl rings as Sapp, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year. In addition, Sapp has filed for bankruptcy since retiring from the NFL, although he’s now somewhat back on his feet, while Strahan is off to a very successful career on the air. Again, advantage: Strahan.

In all this foolishness, we can’t forget about the other six men who will be honored as NFL legends this year: Andre Reed, Walter Jones, Derrick Brooks, Aeneas Williams, Claude Humphrey and Ray Guy will join Strahan as the other members of the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. Congratulations to all inductees as they are all well deserving, regardless of what Sapp says.

The most recent example came in the form of a previously overlooked attempt at blocking Denver Broncos defensive end DeMarcus Ware. Carolina Panthers tackle Michael Oher tried to hold his ground against Ware's rush but the ground is exactly what betrayed Oher and gave way. The result? A mid-game moonwalk.
