Giants legend Michael Strahan mercilessly trolls the Eagles ahead of jersey retirement

Michael Strahan, Giants, Eagles

New York Giants fans can use a laugh these days, with the team’s struggles stressing them out. Well, let Giants legend Michael Strahan’s humor make them feel a little bit better.

The former Giants defensive end will have his No. 92 jersey retired this coming Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford when New York faces division rivals Philadelphia Eagles. When speaking about the upcoming occasion, Strahan didn’t let an opportunity to roast the Eagles go by, trolling Philly with a hilarious comment that should have Giants fans cracking up.

Via Jordan Raanan of ESPN:

Michael Strahan said if they retired his jersey in Philly that would have been fine with him too. He was always good for a few sacks against the Eagles. But it will happen Sunday at MetLife Stadium vs. Eagles. “What took so long?” Strahan said. He expected it to come sooner.

Strahan, who played his entire career with the Giants, is one of the most prolific pass rushers in the history of the NFL. In fact, he holds the all-time record in sacks in a season with 22.5 for the Giants.

He was also not joking when he said that the Eagles were “good for a few sacks.” The former Giants star recorded a total of 21.5 sacks against Philadelphia, the most he had during his illustrious NFL career against any team.

Hopefully for the Giants, Strahan’s presence on Sunday will help reinvigorate their lethargic pass rush that ius just 27th in the league in sack rate.
