Football stars Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan are at odds over who should be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.

The feud began when Sapp attacked Strahan earlier this week, accusing the New York Giants defensive end of making a career out of rushing against "the weak guy" on offensive lines.

In addition to deeming Strahan of being unworthy of the Hall of Fame, Sapp said Wednesday that his former Miami teammate Simeon Rice deserves the honor instead.

"Nobody ever talks about Simeon… [He] was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday," said the 41-year-old Sapp, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Sapp did not stop there- the former Defensive Player of the Year went on to say that Strahan's 15-year career with the Giants only took off after he was moved from the right end to the left side.

"[Rice] didn't rush the worst lineman," said Sapp, according to the Tribune. "You know the right tackle is the worst of the five. Strahan played right end his first four years. When they were putting the label on him as a bust, they put B-U-S. Ok, let's transition him on the other side and see if he can play in his fourth year.'"

"They put him at the right end and he couldn't do it, so they moved him to the weak guy," Sapp added.

The comments are the latest by Sapp who has targeted Strahan before. In February, when Strahan was not selected to be a part of the Hall of Fame Class of 2013, Sapp called the Giants player a "media darling."

In response to Sapp's sharp comments at the time, Strahan took to Twitter with a message.

"You never cease to amaze me!" Strahan wrote, according to the New York Daily News. "Enjoy your moment. You don't need to take a shot at my just to justify yourself to other people."

Meanwhile, Strahan has not commented on Sapp's latest attack. The former defensive lineman is now a co-anchor on the morning television show "Live! With Kelly and Michael."

The television personality holds the record for the most sacks in a single season with 22.5 in 2001, and he is currently fifth on the NFL's all-time sack list with 141.5 sacks.
