Hard to argue with those numbers. I'd be shocked if he's not in the Hall someday.
Maybe just not his first chance in 5 years, but i agree.

Re: Sapp retires

I say Farve and Sapp get inducted in together and contribute to a GLORIOUS induction ceremony.

Re: Sapp retires

Favre deffinately but Sapp... Im back and forth on him. He was a part of a really nasty Bucs deffense that was almost unstoppable but that whole team was good. He kinda disapeared in Oakland. He did have a long career so maybe he was just old, but I have a hard time believing he gets in on first ballot based on how he finished his career. Favre ended in the NFC championship.... Sapp with a horrible team three years in a row. (which I am in no way blaming him solely for)

It could still happen. He almost retired before this season started, and now that he won it all, why not call it a career?

I don't know...I can't think of many DT's better than he was. He really should be a first ballot HOFer, he had an amazing career and most of it was spent being double teamed. He changed the opponants game plan just by being on the field.
Favre and Sapp should both be inducted together. I'm not sure that Strahan would make it if he actually did retire though.

Well, he did have 10.5 sacks as a DT in 2006. But it's not his fault really that Oakland was so awful the past few years.

oh yeah i agree. I'm just saying how it will look to the people voting. I know some people who thought Sapp already retired... Idiots, but people nonetheless.

Hopefully people will realize that it's rare to retire on top. But I hear ya.

Re: Sapp retires

Oh - by "on top" you mean after a SB championship?

He had a great 06 in Oakland, but he wasn't doing any interviews. Defensive Players like Sapp sometimes suffer by comparison from their early success, just like Deion did here. Because you don't hear about them, doesn't mean they're not doing well.

I would argue that Sapp could still play DT better than 50-60% of the nfl today.
