It looks like former NFL defensive lineman Warren Sapp is at it again. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that he can’t keep his mouth shut for too long without ripping someone. This time it’s former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan.
Sapp claims that Strahan wasn’t as good as his former teammate Simeon Rice.
“Nobody ever talks about Simeon,” said Sapp, via the Tampa Tribune. “Simeon was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday.”
Sapp claims Strahan wasn’t succesful until he moved from the right side to the left side of the line.
“(Rice) didn’t rush the worst lineman,” said Sapp, who beat out Strahan for a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013. “You know the right tackle is the worst of the five. Strahan played right end his first four years. When they were putting the label on him as a bust, they put ‘B-U-S . OK, let’s transition him on the other side and see if he can play in his fourth year.’
“They put him at right end and he couldn’t do it, so they moved him to the weak guy. One-on-one with the (Eagles right tackle) Jon Runyans for eight quarters every year. Sim won’t ever have his name brought up (for the Hall of Fame), and that’s a shame. He’s one of the best pass rushers I’ve ever encountered in my life.”
It sounds like Sapp was board and wanted some attention. Well here you go, you got your attention.
