YES Network takes a walk with George Martin

As I wrote below, p.r. people know I'm a sucker for Giants stuff these days. So here's another programming note, this time from YES:

Tuesday night's "This Week in Football" will feature a piece by Kim Jones based on her visit last week with George Martin, who is walking cross-country for his "A Journey for 9/11" initiative.

Jones walked with Martin for five hours from Fort Smith, Ark., to the Oklahoma border, and they covered a range of topics, many related to the NFC champs, past and present.

Here he is on whether Michael Strahan could have played with the 1980s Giants:

"If Michael Strahan had played on our teams, George Martin may not have made it into the NFL! Michael is phenomenal. He’s playing as dominant a defensive end role that I’ve ever seen. You look at the Cowboys game, he’s the one who provided all the pressure throughout the course of that game. I think it’s because of him that [the Cowboys] eventually lost that game."
