  • Tiki is on the Mike Francesa

    Tiki is finally speaking with some sense. He finally admitted that he was wrong about Eli, and that Coughlin taught him ball security.
    Lets go, Giants!

    yeah just caught interview ... altho it did make me laugh that he was complaining about the smattering of boos

    i do like Tiki, he was a great RB for us ... now he's terrible at team leadership and sports analysis, but you can't be good at everything
    Apologize to Melo 5

        Yeah. I heard that at work. LOL the crowd cheered when he said he was wrong about Manning. That's all I needed to hear from Tiki. All is forgiven now with me. Welcome back Tiki!

          he knows why those boos are there! he had complete control over this situation by at least not dissing the Giants!

          he thought everyone would laugh when he berated Eli! he really didnt know Eli as well as he thought! Eli had the last laugh!

          personally i lost some respect for Tiki when he did those things. i love the things he done on the field but he screwed all that up by opening his big mouth!

            I’ve lost respect for him and think he should still get booed by giant’s fans. Coughlin saved his career he was on his way to fumbling his way out of the NFL and he thanked him by calling him out after he retired.
            NY GIANTS SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!!!
            ALL IN!!!

              I dug Tiki when he was on the Giants. he was a great RB for the team. But even back then if you listen to his interveiws IT WAS ALWAYS ABOUT HIM......ALWAYS. Then after he retired and spewed all **** and screwed over his pregnant wife and the team. I ahve also heard through pople who work in the Giants org that he is "persona non grata" in the eyes of the owners. Tiki dug his own hole and its hisd fault. His ego is so big he cant even control it......

                Im not gonna lie...i was mad as heII at Tiki for his comments.

                But for the life of me I cant figure out why some of you are still bashing Tiki after what Toomer and Strahan have said.

                I for one have buried that hatchet with Tiki Barber...if we can all just shake our heads and forgive Toomers "Romo better then Eli" and Strahans "Osi's new contract is a slap in his face"... I think after 5 years we can ease up on Tiki Barber guys.

                  Toomer should STFU too but no where near what the multiple times Tiki has stuck his ego and foot in his mouth. Not even close.....

                    This.
                    He could have been a respected and successful analyst, and we Giant fans would have continued loving him. He didn't think beyond his own ego and screwed his own chances for respect and credibility.
                    Now he'll always be in damage control mode... no retirement nights for him like we've had for others.

                      even though tiki was all about tiki.....
                      these 3 facts still remain ;

                      1) eli was NOT a leader yet when tiki said he wasn't.

                      2) coughlin WAS the d-bag that tiki said he was WHEN he said it. the front office warnings
                      and the players revolt (led by strahan) changed that.

                      3) hands down best nyg running back of all time. on the field he was great.

                      well 4 things actually.....tiki was , is , and probably always will be an outspoken a-hole.
                      but a great football player , he will be in canton.

                        He dumped his pregnant wife of twins for a quicky intern. Not really a stand up guy. Great running back though.
                        WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                          Not if the vote was done by Giant fans......but you are probably right.....It is too bad that he tarnished an other wise great giant legacy by the way he ended it

                            i think tiki felt we needed him, and not that he needed us...i think thats the best way to define him...

                              Been watching our Giants since '58 and you are right about #3. No questions asled.
                              I'm not sure he has enough credentials for #4, especially play-off credentials. It's not his fault, but the fact remains.
                              Numbers 1 and 2 are simply professional discretion/courtesy that most athletes follow to keep issues like that about their ex-teams quiet.. They were things Tiki never needed to point out to the public. They were things an ex-team mate simply does not do. You don't see any other ex NFL players trashing their old team mates and coach once they've retired and hit the TV/Radio shows. Besides, they were Tiki's opinion.
                              Heck, even guys like T.O.don't rag on their past teammates and coaches.
