Strahan Retires.................

Updated: June 9, 2008, 10:17 AM EST The New York Giants will begin their road to a defense of their Super Bowl title when mini-camp begins on Wednesday. That defense, however, will be attempted without the services of their team leader Michael Strahan.

After a lengthy and for Strahan up-and-down decision-making process, Strahan said he's hanging up the cleats and wanted to finalize a decision before his teammates gathered for their mini-camp. For months fans, other players and his own teammates have wondered whether he would return or not.

Good for him. He went out on top. And I'm glad we don't have to face him twice a year anymore.

Strahan was a great player. Hands down hall of famer and seemingly a pretty good guy.

We'll be seeing him on TV shortly.

Good call on his part.

He's got a ring and a Hall of Fame resume. No sense in riding it out any further.

He had a really good season last year and the giants won the SB. Couldn't think of a better way to call it quits.

Glad we don't have to deal with him anymore. That does leave a pretty big void at DE for the giants, who's next in line?

Good for him. I guess Fox made him a pretty decent offer.

I think he changes his mind after training camp is just about over and comes back for another season and another 6 to 8 mill. If I'm corect he is still hurting a little for cash after his wife got most of his in their div. and he still has something left in his tank. He just does not want to spend the time in camp and playing those waist of time preseason games (thats is a waist of time for a vet D lineman). I've been wrong before.

I'll be glad to see him on Fox or CBS but I won't believe it till September 4 and I don't see him out there

I'm sure we'll be seeing him on t.v. this year, possibly Fox because Fox handles all the NFC battles. Speaking of battles he used to have some epic ones back in the day with Jansen when Jansen was healthy. I'm glad we don't have to face him twice a year anymore too. He's easily a HOFer in my book and he'll just be solidifying that with his career in t.v. lol.

I agree w/those that said he got a good offer from fox or cbs. Maybe he was negotiating w/them last year & the deal wasn't good enough so he came back & played?

Good decision IMO, get out on top w/your health. He had a great career, but Jansen did usually get the best of him. I really don't remember him coming close to wreaking havoc on us the way LT did. Nonetheless, at the least, his presence on that team will be missed & that's good for us.

This is just the beginning of what will be a rough 08 for the g men!

Thank God. I was hoping he would after finally winning A SB.

Good for him. No better way to go out.

On a side note isn't he dating Eddie Murphy's ex wife?? I keep seeing him with her on TV. She is smokin.
