Former New York Giants DL Michael Strahan said New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan's act of talking too much is becoming old. According to Strahan, Ryan is on the verge of becoming a joke in his own locker room. "It's a fine line whenever you have to talk that much," Strahan said. "Once it kind of seems like a joke, it becomes a joke to your own players." Strahan added, "If I have to walk into a room and tell you how bad I am, I'm probably not that bad. If I'm comfortable in my own skin, I shouldn't have to convince people of my words. That's the whole thing with Rex I look at. At some point, you just look and go 'enough is enough.'"

But after long deliberation and throwing around a million scenarios in my head for the past day, I think it's just best if I stay retired. I have gone back and forth on this because as a player you'll always want to play, you'll never lose that urge to be out there. But I could only do this if I could commit 100 percent, physically, mentally, emotionally and I can't do that. I've tried to convince myself and my body to give it one more year, but in the end I just don't think I could turn it on like I need to again," Strahan said.
