Giants Cut AP, End of an Era

Teams are defined by two positions in my mind: QB and MLB. These are the field generals and it is hard to find success on each side of the ball without strong leaders and talent at these positions. And since 2005 the Giant’s defense, for better or worse, has been defined not by Strahan or Osi or Webster, but AP. It is because of his leadership both on and off the field that AP holds this distinction.

But unlike his intellect, his talent has been regularly called in to question. And this is the reason ultimately that the Giants and AP have parted ways.

More on this story later but for now I just want to say: THANK YOU AP! You will go down as an all-time great Giant LB alongside Jessie Armstead (my personal favorite), Lawrence Taylor, Sam Huff, Harry Carson, and Carl Banks.
