To say there is no love lost between former NFL players Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan would be a pretty severe understatement.
Still, the “fued” (if you will) has been relatively quiet – that was – until Sapp decided to take some shots at the former New York Giant during a recent interview with the Tampa Tribune.
Sapp stated that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammate Simeon Rice never received the respect he deserved, despite being more talented than Strahan, taking a few swipes at the former Giant in the process.
“Nobody ever talks about Simeon,” said Sapp, who played three seasons with Rice in Tampa and saw the right defensive end average 14 sacks between 2001-03. “Simeon was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday.”
“(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.’
