NFL Network analyst and Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Sapp had some harsh words for Michael Strahan of Fox, and the reasoning behind his destruction of Strahan seems a little bizarre. You see, in an interview with the Tampa Tribune, Sapp compared Strahan to former teammate Simeon Rice, saying that Rice was a far superior player during his career. "Nobody ever talks about Simeon,'' said Sapp, who played three seasons with Rice in Tampa and saw the right defensive end average 14 sacks between 2001-03. "Simeon was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday.'' Well then. Sapp then went on to explain the logic behind his comments, which essentially boiled down to "Strahan lined up against the worst lineman on every down." OK then. I don't know why Sapp would even drag Strahan's name into things, aside from perhaps jealousy that Strahan's media star keeps rising while Sapp is stuck in neutral at NFL Network. Sapp took some shots at Strahan in February, but for him to dredge this feud up again just seems like a desperate grab for attention. [Tampa Tribune]
