Tiki Barber beefed so much with the Giants that everyone forgot how great he was

    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.

      Buoyed.... (Boo-eed?) I thought it was (Boy-ed). Why do Americans have to constantly butcher the english language?

                      He wasn't even the best Barber to play in the NFL.

                        Amazing how his brother was such a class act... Another comment on here describes Tiki perfectly... Him leaving his pregnant wife for an intern says all you need to know about him. I'll take a 53 Ronde Barbers on my team any day of the week, but not one Tiki.

                                      LOL it sounds so much worse when it states he abandoned his wife for an intern. Thats actually not the worst. He is married to her now, at least he wasnt married and sleeping wtih tons of side girls liek Tiger

                                                                                      It's simple. NFL players are nothing more than college kids when they join the league. As they age, more often than not they start displaying a level of maturity that would have saved a lot of heartache and drama, had they been that way when they were younger. We have seen this numerous times. This video implies that Braber brown-nosed his way back into the Giants team. I disagree; I call it simply growing up. Who knows how the Giants would have fared if Barber had been this way all along.

Yes it’s foul to the core but how much dirty laundry do these so called critics have in their closets? Let him without sin cast the first stone. Love him or hate him, Tiki was at least transparent which I appreciated. I appreciated it so much, that it brought me joy when Tiki influenced Shockey when Shockey blasted the coaching staff primarily TC, on a lopsided road loss to Seattle. Sometimes, you just have to air it out & shelf the PC way. I don’t agree with most of Tiki’s actions, but the dude was transparent rather than a PC ass kisser. As a player, I salute Tiki! There’s a reason why the Mara’s requested Tiki & my guy Shockey to set at Wellington Mara’s bedside. Tiki made mistakes & acknowledged them. Skeptics need to get off their high horse & look at themselves in the mirror. Like they’re any better. Pff!
