The NFL season may be only three weeks old, but times already have grown tedious for Michael Strahan, the New York Giants' all-pro defensive end. Strahan has gotten tired of being asked why he has yet to get a sack. After all, he dumped quarterbacks behind the line of scrimmage 29 times over the last two seasons. That malevolent habit won him a four-year, $32 million contract last summer, and the team obviously expects a return on its investment. Strahan, who may be the best run-stopping/pass-rushing defensive lineman in the game, would like to break the ice no later than this afternoon against the Eagles at the Meadowlands.

Seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan reported to the New York Giants yesterday, 6 days before the season opener. Ending a holdout that may cost him more than $500,000 in fines, Strahan arrived unobserved at Giants Stadium around 4 p.m., handled some paperwork and met with general manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin. He also took a physical and left after 45 minutes, not making himself available for comment. Strahan, 35, who held out for more than 5 weeks and missed all four preseason games while deciding whether to play a 15th season or retire, will practice today.

Getting shipped off to a new team might help the endorsement prospects of ex-Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. "While we're not sure of how he'll do on the field, off the field, his revival has already begun," wrote Jeff Lefton of the Sports Business Journal earlier this week. McNabb's star might also be the brightest now among athletes in D.C., where he'll start for the Redskins, blogged Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post today. The prime example is a new Dr Pepper ad, shot last month, in which Michael Strahan, the New York Giants defensive end turned Fox sports analyst and flopped sitcom star, relives a bit of his glory days.

ON TUESDAY'S "Live with Kelly and Michael," host Michael Strahan talked about a 1999 game he played against the Doug Pederson -led Eagles in which he intercepted a pass and ran the ball into the end zone for a touchdown. In spectacular fashion, Strahan celebrated with a Ricky Martin -style pose. Producers later tracked down a video clip of the game with Strahan's celebration and aired it on yesterday's show. Cute, right? But that's when things went nuts. During the commercial break, former Eagle Lonnie Palelei stood up and made himself known.

Seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan has decided to end his holdout and return for a 15th NFL season with the New York Giants. "He went with his heart instead of his head," Tony Agnone, his agent, said in a telephone interview with the Associated Press last night. "He felt at this point he was part of the team, and he was going to go to battle with them. " "He knows he'll be ready to go," Agnone said of Strahan's playing in the season opener at Dallas next week.

Coming off a season-ending chest injury, Michael Strahan wasn't supposed to be doing much on the opening day of the New York Giants' minicamp yesterday. "Limited" was the word the team used to describe his status. Strahan didn't act that way, though. The defensive end hugged guard Jason Whittle early in the morning workout and wrapped up punter Jeff Feagles later on. "I feel great," Strahan, 33, said between practices. "I am having no trouble, nothing hurts. I'm in one piece.

1 How can the Eagles win? They have to stop running back Tiki Barber. They have to hit Giants quarterback Kerry Collins. They have to give Donovan McNabb time to throw. 2 Why is Barber such a pain for the Birds? He catches the ball "in space," as they say; that is, he gets the ball with nobody around. Then he runs away from the Eagles' overmatched linebackers. 3 Why does Collins play so well against the Eagles? Because he gets time in which to throw, and offensive coordinator Sean Payton - a former Eagles quarterbacks coach under then-offensive coordinator Jon Gruden - makes things easy for him. Think Gruden with Bobby Hoying.

Michael Strahan dropped thoughts of retirement and returned to the New York Giants for a 15th NFL season because his desire to play football and his love of the game were rekindled. He also, not incidentally, still wants a Super Bowl ring. "You know you just want to come back," a bearded Strahan said yesterday after rejoining the team and practicing. "I felt I wanted to play football, plain and simple. I wanted to enjoy it. I wanted to come here and enjoy myself, play football, enjoy my teammates and the fans and just do it - do it one more time.

Washington Redskins quarterback Tony Banks, who sustained a concussion in last week's game at Denver, returned to practice yesterday and remained on course to start against the Eagles on Sunday at Veterans Stadium. Banks sat out Wednesday's practice as a precaution, but all his postgame tests were negative. Kent Graham, who relieved Banks in the 17-10 victory over the Broncos, will start only if Banks has a setback. Jaguars. Jacksonville placed tight end Damon Jones on the waivers-injured reserve list, effectively ending his five-year career with the team.

Defensive player of the year Michael Strahan agreed to a 7-year, $46 million deal yesterday that will allow the NFL's single-season sack holder to end his career with the New York Giants. The deal came 3 days before the Giants' opener against the San Francisco 49ers and just 6 months after an angry Strahan declared that this would be his final season with the team after a proposed $56 million deal fell apart. Strahan, 30, will receive a $6.4 million signing bonus. A total of $20.9 million of the contract will be guaranteed over the next three seasons, including $5.5 million in salary this year.

NEW YORK - The only worry on Michael Strahan's mind when he made his entrance Tuesday as the new co-host of "Live!": "Don't trip," he summed up after the show. He didn't. When Kelly Ripa introduced him, the gap-toothed former football player jogged onto the morning show set and gathered her up in a bear hug, lifting her off her feet. "When I was hugging Kelly, that's when I was calming down," Strahan explained. The rest of the hour was clearly a snap for him and for Ripa, who was getting a permanent partner nine months after Regis Philbin retired from the show and after having welcomed Strahan and 58 other guests in the chair beside her. Taking his seat on Tuesday, the former New York Giant joked that it felt "comfy, like it was molded for my body.

MICHAEL STRAHAN has a unique perspective of Donovan McNabb's career, and not just because 10 percent of his 141 1/2 sacks were of McNabb. Strahan, perhaps the greatest of all Giants, is buddies with McNabb. They chatted last week, in fact. Like most out-of-town observers, Strahan cannot believe how little Philadelphia seems to appreciate the best quarterback in franchise history. "Everybody in Philly ? when he's gone, they're going to miss him," Strahan told the Daily News yesterday.

Well, guess the New York Giants are glad Michael Strahan decided to stay retired. He doesn't think his longtime former teammates have enough to win it all. The seven-time Pro Bowler raised eyebrows in his old locker room yesterday for predicting that Dallas would end the Giants' reign as Super Bowl champions. During the Fox Sports NFL pregame show Sunday, Strahan picked the Giants to win the NFC East. But then he chose the Cowboys - who are also in the NFC East - to win the Super Bowl.

The New York Giants have reached out to the recently retired Michael Strahan, and talks are under way to see whether they can lure him back for a 16th NFL season, the New York Daily News reported. According to a source close to Strahan, the seven-time Pro Bowler received a call from a Giants official yesterday to gauge his interest in coming back to replace the injured Osi Umenyiora. The Daily News reported earlier yesterday that Strahan is willing to come back if the Giants make a "sincere effort" to woo him and make an offer of $8 million for the year.

Michael Strahan showed he still has it, just days before he turns 36 and in a year he pondered retirement. Strahan had a season-high three sacks, helping the New York Giants beat the Lions yesterday, 16-10, to gain the advantage in the NFC wild-card race. "From the time he got off the bus, he was very focused," said teammate Sam Madison, who had one of the victory-sealing interceptions in the final 2:04. "He was very energetic. He was the Stra of old. He's getting his legs under him. He's getting his second wind.

Jon Runyan offered a wry grin and a one-word answer when asked how defensive end Michael Strahan looked on the game tape of the New York Giants he saw earlier this week. "Rested," the Eagles' massive tackle said. Since no NFL player in his right mind enjoys training camp in the blistering heat of August or those meaningless exhibition games, Runyan was probably a bit envious that Strahan, his old nemesis, didn't report to the Giants until the Monday before the season opener, against Dallas.

Tiki Barber says he retired because New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin robbed him of his love of the game. In excerpts from his book, Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond, obtained by the New York Daily News, the former Giants running back writes that he might still be playing if Coughlin was not still coaching the Giants. The book goes on sale Sept. 18. "If Tom Coughlin had not remained as head coach of the Giants, I might still be in a Giants uniform," the excerpt in the Daily News said.
