NFC Championship: Mara Taps Strahan for Honorary Captain


The Giants have always been an organization that respects and remembers it’s past.  This Sunday, when the team travels to San Francisco, three former Giants will be on the field as honorary captains.  Michael Strahan, Rich Seubert, and Mark Bavaro.  The Niners have asked former owner Eddie DiBartolo to be their honorary captain.

Michael Strahan, who now works for Fox Sports announced on Twitter earlier today that John Mara called him and asked him to represent the team, and Michael, like a good family member, was excited for the opportunity.

Mark Bavaro, of course, had a huge night 25 years ago in San Francisco, and the Giants need to bring that same physical presence to this game on Sunday to be successful. Bavaro Drags 49ers

Rich Seubert, who was always the heart and soul of the very physical offensive line for the New York Giants, is still nursing a devastating dislocated knee cap suffered last year.  He has not officially retired from the NFL, but has relocated to California.

The Giants will be well represented by these three gentleman, all of them Champions
