Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defensive tackle Warren Sapp, who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in a month and half, had a bit of a rivalry with former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan during their careers. It goes back to Sapp taking offense as to how Strahan captured the all-time sacks record. Sapp wanted Strahan’s 22.5 sacks to include an asterisk because Favre seemingly gave it away by taking a dive as Strahan went unblocked. Strahan went with a fat insult and said that Sapp needed a McDonald’s next door to his house. While Sapp seemed humbled earlier this year with his election to the Hall, he then turned his attention to Strahan by knocking him, after Strahan failed to get enough votes to warrant election on the first try. The two then battled on Twitter. Well, it’s not over. Sapp doesn’t want Strahan in at all, and thinks former teammate Simeon Rice belongs in over him, anyway “Simeon was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday,” Sapp told the Tampa Tribune. Simeon was one of the premier pass-rushers, no doubt. But Strahan did accumulate more sacks in [...]

  • 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 phucking 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 phucking heads examined.
  • Sapp is an egotistical azz whole.
  • warren sapp is a poor excuse of a man. He made 81 million dollars in contract money and filed bankruptcy last year. He has belittled people and treated fans as pieces of dirt. His knock coming out of college was his drug use. He has time and time again been in the news with negative marks against his character. (drug Use in college) Abusive husband, Poor excuse of a father.As a lifelong bucs fan I have to say he deserves the hall of fame as a player in the nfl And The hall of shame as a human being.
  • Couldn't agree more, what I don't get is how this guy is being employed by The NFL Network as one of their 'Talking Heads'. It's a joke that he's on television spreading his brand of nonsense.
