Warren Sapp believes Michael Strahan doesn't belong in Hall of Fame

Last August, former NFL All-Pro and Super Bowl-winning defensive tackle Warren Sapp was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. At Super Bowl 48 Media Day on Tuesday, he made it known that he doesn’t think Michael Strahan should be put in there along with him.

In speaking to Neil Best of Newsday, Sapp pulled no punches is downgrading Strahan’s potential Hall of Fame status.

When asked to further explain his opinion, he pointed toward the “mythical” sack record that Strahan holds, something that Sapp has had an issue with in the past.

Sapp and Strahan have been taking shots at each other for years. In the past, in response to Sapp’s jabs at his sack record, Strahan said there should be a McDonald’s next to Sapp’s house because he’s so fat.
