OT: Big Retirement Announcements

Yes, Hasek retired today (again), but apparently Strahan announced his retirement today, as well.

Happy Trails, Michael, you are a warrior that is in many ways the epitome of a Giant.

Time for a change of the guard on the Giants' D, but we'll miss you Mike.

Saw the Hasek retirement coming, but he had a hell of a career.

Happy trails to two future Hall of Famers in their respective sports!

The Giants can either move Tuck to end or put Kiwanuka back there.

Tuck seems to have adjusted to DT pretty quickly. Moving Kiwanuka from LB back to DE might make more sense.

We'll find out how good Osi really is, now that it is he that will be double teamed every game.

He was pretty damn good when Strahan either wasn't in the line-up or was in hi spre-season form the beginning of last season.

No doubt. I don't expect a let down but now its all about him 16+ weeks a season for opposing O-lines.

Strahan is one of my all-time favorite players. I will miss him. I thought there was a chance he'd come back for one more year although I don't blame him at all for leaving on a high note.

Osi and Kiwi will still give us one of the best pass-rushes in the league and even if Tuck stays at DT, he's essentially a third pass rusher.

1st ballot Hall of Famer, without a doubt. Good decision by Mike, riding off into sunset with a ring on his finger. Well, let's have Kiwanuka back at the end. Can't wait to see his blazing speed off the edge.
