Clearly, it was time for an intervention. Enter Michael Strahan, one of the more popular and productive defenders in franchise history.
The former All-Pro pass rusher visited Giants camp Wednesday, giving a pep talk to a defensive line that has failed to live up to expectations.
"I would love to give you a story about how he came in and gave a we're going to rally around Michael Strahan speech, but it wasn't," defensive end Dave Tollefson said. "He just had some good stuff to say that was great to hear, from a guy who you just have so much respect for. He could tell me how to iron clothes and I would probably iron them how he says it. Seriously, the guy commands respect, and you always give that to him."
But Strahan kept it positive and talked football.
