    Details of Michael Strahan’s Ceremony

    This all has come full circle for the Hall of Famer, who was drafted 28 years ago out of Texas Southern. He was the 13th number in Giant history to be retired, however, he was even surprised they retired his jersey. Due to the fact, no player has worn his jersey number since 2007. He asks jokingly, “What took so long?” when asked earlier in the week about the retirement.

    Michael Strahan took the stage alongside his family, former Giants linebacker Jessie Armstead, former head coach Tom Coughlin, and team owners John Mara and Steve Tisch. Oddly enough, both owners were booed continually when brought up by Strahan. This seems to be a pattern that keeps recurring. In the retirement of Eli Manning’s jersey, when they were mentioned they also were booed.

    “To be honest, when you have someone like Michael Strahan being honored, you don’t want to underperform,” stated current Giants coach Joe Judge. “Let’s face it, you never want that to happen, but when you’re celebrating the greatness of a player like Strahan and what he did for this team, the last thing you want is to disappoint, especially on the defensive side.”
