In a short few hours we will know if two New York Giants, Michael Strahan and Bill Parcells have made the football Hall of Fame. They are two of the 17 finalists for the Hall of Fame.

Last year Bill Parcells fell short of making the Hall of Fame. Many thought this was punishment from the voters for his on again and off again love affair with the NFL. Parcells retired and un-retired numerous times throughout his career in the NFL. However, he is a two-time Super Bowl winner was first man to coach four franchises into the playoffs (Giants, Patriots, Jets, Cowboys). He has an all-time record of 172 wins, 130 losses, 1 tie. He is also 11 and 8 in the Play-offs all-time. My Vote In
Michael Strahan, one of the most popular GIANTS off all time, is up for induction for the very first time.

Strahan retired from the Giants after their Super Bowl Championship in 2007 and since then has lead a successful career working for Fox Sports and recently becoming the permanent co-host of Live with Kelly and Michael. Strahan played his entire career with the New York Giants during which he recorded 1411/2 career sacks and made seven Pro Bowls. He was also NFL defensive player of the Year in 2001. To this day he remains one of the biggest Giants supporters and popular among the fans. My vote: IN
Hopefully I will be in Canton, Ohio watching the induction of two great Giants come this August.
