NY Giants fans will appreciate what Michael Strahan is doing for Kayvon Thibodeaux
No one knew how to bring back opposing quarterbacks quite like NY Giants legend Michael Strahan during his prime. The Super Bowl-winner was the best in the business in getting into the backfield, avoiding blockers and bringing down a signal-caller. Now, Strahan is enjoying his retired life, but that doesn’t mean he’s not following this organization and Kayvon Thibodeaux closely.
Strahan previously said that he’s mentoring the No. 5 overall pick, giving him advice on the team and the NFL as a whole. In a recent interview on the WFAN Sports Radio Tiki & Tierney program, Strahan said he thinks that Thibodeaux will bring the fanbase great happiness during his playing days. On top of that, Strahan added that the sky is the limit for his potential with the NFC East side.
NY Giants legend is ready to help Kayvon Thibodeaux succeed for the G-Men
"“I believe we got a good pick who’s going to bring some joy to Giants fans for some years to come,” Strahan said. “I just hope he’ll allow me to help him as much as I can if there’s anything he needs.”"
That quote right there is great for multiple reasons. No. 1, though, is that Strahan has basically told Giants Nation that he’s going to be available for whenever Thibodeaux needs some help down the road. Strahan wants to help out Thibodeaux the same way that fellow NY legend Eli Manning wants to assist Daniel Jones.
Manning said this spring that he’s going to be there for Jones at the drop of a hat, even if it’s just to exchange text messages or just chat. Strahan wants to have a similar kind of relationship with Thibodeaux, which is obviously great to see. No one knows how to make plays on defense for the Giants quite like Strahan. He and Lawrence Taylor are among the best of the best the league has ever seen.
Thibodeaux has made it no secret that he looks up to Strahan, so he’ll surely be ready to give him a call whenever he’s in need of some guidance. With Thibodeaux looking to make history in terms of sacks as a rookie this fall, there’s going to be a lot of people watching him to make sure he makes Joe Schoen look good for taking him so early. Strahan is confident the rookie will have a monster year.
