After 18 years of suppressing his true feelings, former New York Jets star pass-rusher Mark Gastineau has decided to go public with his belief that the NFL single-season sack record should belong to him, not Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan.

With 22 sacks, Gastineau held the mark from 1984 to 2001.

In the final game of the 2001 season, Strahan broke the record with a controversial sack of Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, whom many believe took a dive to give Strahan an easy solo sack — and a total of 22.5.
Gastineau, who was in attendance that day, congratulated Strahan on the field and never has tried to impugn the integrity of the record.

Until now.
