Michael Strahan had one of the best accomplishment’s ever in the NFL, that is 22.5 sacks in one season. Well he has never really spoke out about it, but in Tuesday Night’s “A Football Life” on the NFL Network, Strahan called out the haters who claim the only way he was able to get the sack was because Brett Favre laid down. Well he went ham, calling out the haters sort of like Kendrick Lamar on BET’s cypher.
“I just hate that it got caught up in the wash of the record-breaking sack,” the former New York Giants defensive end said.
“The sack record’s great — absolutely phenomenal, but I almost feel like in a sense it was diminished, because everyone goes, ‘Oh, Brett Favre gave you a sack.’ I caught so much flak over it. It’s not worth it, because everyone looks as if one sack that they question is the defining moment of my career.
“I didn’t have a sack in the first three weeks of the season. So from four weeks on — 13 games, 22-and-a-half sacks. That’s hard to match, and I’ve never spoken like this about it, because I’ve always kind of taken it, but I always have to say, if you don’t like it, then break it
I have to agree with Strahan, it is not easy to get 10 sacks, let alone 22.5, if you think it was not deserved you are crazy!
