    Provided below are some select quotes from Michael Strahan: A Football Life:

    “I was scared every time I put on a uniform and stepped on the field. I’m scared every day I go into the studio and I come on stage because I fear that I will not live up to what is expected. I fear that somebody who spent a lot of money to come into our studio, to come to New York and they’ll walk away and go, ‘I could have stayed at home.’ I feared that as a player a fan would come to the stands and I wouldn’t perform well. Just the way I’m built. I’m more scared of failure than I am excited about the accolades that come with success.” – Michael Strahan

    “The sack record is great; absolutely phenomenal. But I almost feel like in a sense it was diminished because everyone goes, ‘Brett Favre gave you a sack’…I always have to say if you don’t like it, then break it.” – Michael Strahan

    “I hated him. And when I say hate, I don’t mean hate as I’m just saying hate as a loose word. No, I mean I absolutely hated the man.” – Michael Strahan on New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin

    “He’s best known for being a football hero, but from my perspective that is the least of his talents.” – Kelly Ripa

    “What developed more than anything was his leadership. He could get on the guys around him and they would accept it because he was doing it.” – J.W. Harper

    “A lot of people are given the God-given gifts, and a lot of people don’t have the intensity or desire to get in there and mix it up. He had both of them.” – Jon Runyan

    “I’m somebody who is thinking about going into television when I get done playing, and he’s the blueprint.” – Tony Gonzalez

    This wasn't directed by Warren Sapp, was it? Sapp is such a douche. He makes the rest of the NFL network analysts seem interesting and insightful. The only thing that buttwipe should be analyzing are fast food menus.

    If we don't get a win Monday night, I might start to hate him myself.

    The show was very good btw...Strahan life changed bigtime when he decided to come back and not retire.
