    Tiki Barber ran the ball. The Giants liked that! Tiki Barber ran his mouth. The Giants didn't like that. While he statistically is the greatest running back in franchise history, the New York Giants and Tiki Barber became two ships passing in the night - but like if one of those ships would occasionally talk trash about the other ship.

    Without him, the Giants found the success that had eluded them while Barber was on the roster. And without them, Barber found ways to stay busy. He bashed Eli. He bashed Coughlin. And he made it so no one missed the running back who had retired in his prime.

        I still have a Jason Seahorn jersey. It's in the way way waaay back of my bedroom closet next to my Barber jersey, my skeletons, and the doorway to Narnia.

              Tiki did IMO the worst thing u can do as a man. Leave a pregnant woman for another woman. You couldnt wait till the kids were born?

                It's not even wrong that he felt those things, the problem is that he runs his mouth In public more than a 16 year old female on Instagram. All those complaints, he could have kept that in-house and handled it man to man. Instead he whines to the camera and he played himself.

                  Ronde Barber had a long career with the Buccaneers and was involved in zero controversy. These 2 have the same DNA, somehow.

                      Still can't believe that Strahan sake of Favre counted. Looked more like Bret took a slide into Michael's direction.

                        It always bugged me that Ron dayne sat so much during this era. I just wish dayne had a real shot. I don’t think he took it serious enough being a second man.

                                    That picture is a lie in the beginning. By 97 the eagles were already two seasons into the midnight green and haven't had any Kelly Green uniforms. The 21 in that picture is former Giants CB.

                                        Don't blame Kerry, the ravens ate the Giants offense line apart. Collins literally was benched the second half of the Vikings game because he destroyed them in the first half. Hater.

                                          Everybody forgets tiki barber was only good for like 3 or 4 years, because it took him about 3 years to learn how to hold a football

                                            Humans being humans. Big egos make for big hurts. Years from now everyone involved will look back and think, "Man, what was wrong with me??"

                                                      One of the biggest things I'll always love about this is in the end, everything Tiki wanted to do after he retired, Strahan did and succeeded. Tiki is stuck on a middling radio show (I love BT, he deserves better than Tiki), while Strahan is one of the current kings of daytime TV. Not only a co-host of GMA, but also has his own show, and is a successful analyst on FOX.
