      Manning: He may be the toughest Giant yet, physically and mentally. We've all seen him get tossed around, sacked and beaten up. But he always gets up, saunters back to the huddle and keeps on going. More importantly, his mind is impenetrable. When he lost his first eight games in fairly ugly fashion, he focused and got better. When he got booed and disparaged (even by me), he focused and got better. When he won a Super Bowl, he focused and got better. No matter what happens to him good, bad or indifferent he focuses and keeps going forward. That's a mental toughness that can't be measured
      Can't get nothing by Tiki.

      Mind like a steel trap.
      I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

        usually alot more thought goes into your posts.

        i'm chaulking this one up to pre coffee drowsiness.

        accorsi, a GM in the nfl for almost 20 years and the guy who let John Elway go in a trade that haunted him the rest of his career, drafted Eli because of who his daddy was?

        Accorsi was RIPPED FOR YEARS for giving away what seemed like way too much in the trade for manning.

        truth of the matter is, its clear that Accorsi underpaid for the type of QB Manning has become, and all of the guys that thought he overpaid (including me) are earning our living outside of football for obvious reasons. We don't know 1/100th of what someone like Accorsi does.

          Personally ive buried the hatchet with Tiki.
          He had his opinions and has pretty much admitted they were wrong in regards to Eli.

          As for Coughlin... Tiki was totally right about Coughlin ... at the time.
          Strahan even flat out admitted he "HATED" Coughlin the season Tiki retired (NFLN: A Football Life).
          Tiki never met or worked under the Coughlin the Giants have now.

            .
            Of course not. It's because of who his brother was... ;-)

              Tiki...right to his opinion...sure, that's one thing, IT's TOTALLY another to go on National TV & throw your former coach (who straightened his fumbling problem out, by teaching him how to carry the ball correctly) & your up & coming Quarterback under the bus, lambasting BOTH of them FOR PERSONAL GAIN, to further his budding broadcasting career, who soon found out he had NBG, " Nothing But Giants" scoop. It's pretty obvious neither Eli, Coach Coughlin (taking the high road-neither responded to his comments) or the GIANTS need Mr Barber anymore, his opinions, or on the field of play. PERSONA NON GRATA.

                It started here and like Harooni said, it spreaded to Twitter and facebook. I didn't even know Tiki was a villain until I read the boards. Good thing I got my own mind. Winning 2 Superbowls should be enough punishment for Barber for speaking too soon. I really don't care and I'm personally not wishing misery on the man.

                  I'm just busting chops trying to get the Eli crazies riled up. I really didn't follow his college career though.

                    Tiki is a pretty crappy human being off the field but I try my best to not factor that into his opinions about football. It's hard for me to throw the man under the bus when he was our offense for so long and that he will be known for being one of the best offensive players this team has ever seen. I just hope I never see the day where Eli is retired for several years and the media asks him a question on which current NFCE QB is the best and heavens forbid he says it's the Redskins or Eagles QB.

                      I don't wish misery on him...but admittedly I do find it humorous/comical how much of all this he brought on himself...

                          not true at all. EA personally scouted eli at ole miss and had a report on him thats 100% accurate. EA woulda trade or gotten eli if his last name was toiletpaper

                              I remember all the pre-draft stuff but like I said, I never watched Eli play college ball. The Chargers wanted Manning too so obviously it was more to it than just his name. It's funny to just blurt out some of your (my) earlier thoughts on the matter though.

                                I suspect Eli will go down as one of the Giants best QBs in franchise history..... if he wins another ring, he might even go down as the best Giants QB i franchise history..... which an argument could be made for that now.
