    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
    Took him only 9 years to realize that? Not bad. ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz

    No, we're not. We never do.
    But, unless we really know the man, perhaps his contributions to our team are all that we are really qualified to judge.
    In my lifeteam, Tiki was the best Giant RB I've had the pleasure to see.
    What stupidity comes out of his mouth is something I won't judge... just like I won't judge LT's personal problems.

    Maybe at most, honorary captain at a future game....but I think they already did that for him.

    To Quote Tiki - "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."

    Now, did he not say even he "disparaged" Eli?

    But to answer the question. People hate Tiki because he gossiped about what was going on the huddle of his former team. At that point he's not an ex-giant he's a double agent, a spy, a merc. Everyone knows that Vegas rules apply to the huddle and Tiki broke the rules.

    Also any claims that he "believed" in Eli is total B.S. You don't call someone "laughable" when you believe in him. Coughlin might have been one of the reasons Tiki retired but another reason was the he felt he would never win anything with Eli at QB.

    So now he comes talking all nice AFTER Eli wins 2 SBs. Where was he when everyone was trashing the kid? I didn't hear Tiki saying anything about how "Laughable" the NFLs top 100 list was for not including Eli.

    Tiki is a turncoat bandwagon *****.
    you may want to skip strahans book then all sorts of storys about coughlin and eli and what went on in the locker room.

    ps- he never called Eli laughable he said he first speech was comical as a rookie. some of you have gone as far as make things up to hate Tiki more.

    It's hard to believe anything Tiki says because he changes his story depending on who is listening, all in the name of promoting himself as the smartest guy in the room. The grudge is based on rooting for a guy who turns out to be a ******-bag...
