Favre thinks Giants should go after Strahan

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
Brett Favre laid down so Michael Strahan could break the season sack record in 2001.

On Monday, Favre stood up for him.

The New York Jets quarterback said Strahan should join him in un-retirement. The New York Giants are desperate for a pass rusher now that Osi Umenyiora is out for the season with a knee injury.

Strahan retired after the Giants won the Super Bowl and took a job with Fox Sports as a studio analyst.

"If I was a Giant, I'd do whatever I could to get him out and have him back on my team," Favre said. "The guy still looks great; hell of a player. I would have done whatever to try to get him back initially, but now, how could you not want him back?

"Wouldn't that be something? He comes back and we start a trend."
