Warren Sapp felt that it was important for him to further explain why he believes Simeon Rice was a better player than Michael Strahan on the NFL Network tonight. “For all of the people who are not historians of football as I am, Michael Strahan started his career at right defensive end in New York to replace Lawrence Taylor – the great Lawrence Taylor,” Sapp said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, explaining his recent comments that Simeon Rice belonged in the Hall ahead of Strahan. “In those three years, he had 12 sacks which averages out to four a year. So they put ‘B-U-S’ and they said, ‘Wait, before we call him a bust let’s move him to the left side.’ Ten-and-a-half sacks a year, 128 [at left defensive end]. He’s a great left end. Simeon Rice [had] 122 [sacks] at right end and was never moved.” First of all Strahan wasn’t even a starter during his rookie year and the Giants were still running a 3-4 defense.  In 1994 (Strahan’s 2nd season) the Giants switched to a 4-3 and Strahan was a starter on the right side and recorded  4.5 sacks.  He then moved to the right side during his third season where he recorded 7.5 sacks.  It seems like Sapp can’t even get his facts straight. For Sapp to say the Giants were worried he was going to be a bust is crazy.  He only played one season on the right side. Need NFL Tickets?
