Giants to honor Hall of Famer Michael Strahan at Nov. 3 game
The New York Giants will honor new Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Michael Strahan at their Nov. 3 Monday Night Football game against the Indianapolis Colts, reports The Record's Art Stapleton. Giants VP of Communications Pat Hanlon confirmed the news.
Strahan will receive his Hall of Fame ring during a halftime ceremony.
A 15-year veteran who spent his entire career with the Giants, Strahan was elected to the Hall of Fame in February in his second year of eligibility. The defensive end is fifth all-time in career sacks with 141.5, and owns the single-season sack record, putting up 22.5 in 2001.
Strahan made the Pro Bowl seven times and was first team All-Pro four times. He helped the Giants win Super Bowl XLII in an upset over the undefeated New England Patriots in 2008, retiring after the game.
Strahan was named to the NFL's All-Decade team for the 2000s. He was inducted into the Giants' Ring of Honor in 2010.
Since retiring, Strahan has served as a talk show co-host on "Live! with Kelly and Michael."
On Tuesday's SI Now, Sports Illustrated senior writer Don Banks and NFL writer Chris Burke discuss expecting Eli Manning to have a 70 percent completion percentage is very unrealistic.
