What in the world is Warren Sapp’s beef with former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan? Warren Sapp, who wreaked havoc as a defensive tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, showed that he’s obviously not a fan of Strahan’s. Sapp insulted Strahanback in February after getting inducted to the Hall of Fame, and it seems he wasn’t done with his insults/hatred.
“Nobody ever talks about Simeon (Rice). Simeon was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday,” said Sapp. The Hall of Fame lineman suggested that his former teammate was better and the reason why Strahan was ever successful was because he got switched to the left side of the defensive line, after not producing on the right side his first four years. “Rice didn’t rush the worst lineman. You know, the right tackle is the worst of the five. Strahan played right end his first four years.”
Can this be true?
In Simeon Rice’s career, he tallied 122 sacks, while Strahan finished his career with 141.5 sacks—which includes Strahan’s record-setting 22.5 sacks in 2001. Yes, Strahan played three more seasons than Rice, but Strahan displayed that he was the better all-around defensive end.
Keep on trolling, Warren Sapp.
