Michael Strahan Retires

The Packers don't play the NY Giants in 2008, and there is no guarantee the teams will meet in the postseason either, but when the team that just narrowly beat the Packers in last season's NFC Championship game loses their best pass rusher, it's big news. Moving Justin Tuck inside last season, along with the pressure brought by Strahan and Usenyiora from end, was the strength of their defense last season. The Giants have some good options, but Strahan is a probably Hall of Famer and can't be replaced easily. Aaron Schatz thinks the loss of Strahan will knock this borderline playoff team out of the 2008 postseason picture.
