Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber thinks Warren Sapp needs to keeps his opinions of Michael Strahan to himself. Sapp and Strahan have had verbal battles for years now.  Last week the former Buccaneers and Raiders defensive tackle said his former teammate in

  • Even though I'm a huge Giants fan...I'm not a Tiki Barber fan. It's hard to warm up to him considering the things he has done since leaving football. The most aggregious of which was leaving his wife who was pregnant with their child for another woman. And knocking Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin as soon as he got his media gig. But I must agree with him on Warren Sapp.

    I always knew sapp was a big fat blowhard, now I'm convinced of it. This guy is a moron to say that Simeon Rice was better than Michael Strahan. The fact is Strahan was better than both of them and the clear proof is in the unquestionable statistics. In fact it's a joke of monumental proportion that this fat headed tub of goo was inducted into the Hall of Fame ahead of Strahan. Now I'm not saying sapp was not a good defensive player mind you, but it's a freaking joke that he thinks he and Rice were better than Strahan. Let's compare the statistics shall we:

    Sapp-
    7 Time Pro Bowler
    Career Sacks 96.5
    4 INT's for 8 yards (he was always too fat to return the ball)
    Most sacks/season 16.5
    Tackles 438 Assists 135
    Games 198 in 13 seasons

    Rice-
    3 Time Pro Bowler
    Career Sacks 122 (so maybe what fat boy was saying is Rice was better than HIM)
    Most Sacks/Season 16.5
    5 INT's for 48 yards
    392 tackles 83 assists
    174 games 12 seasons


    Now for the Man who blows them both away.
    Strahan-
    7 Time Pro Bowler
    Career Sacks 141.5 (Fat boy didn't even reach 100)
    Most Sacks/Season 22.5 (Still an NFL Record)
    4 INT's for 124 Yards (Fat boy had 8 measly return yards, what a joke)
    667 Career Tackles 187 Assists (Way more than both these guys)
    216 Games 15 Seasons

    Strahan also has 2 Super Bowl rings as the clear leader of a dominant defense in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI. So Sapp needs to shut his big fat ignorant pie hole because he can't hold Michael Strahans jock strap. And the sports writers who voted this jerk in ahead of Michael need to have their freaking heads examined.
