      I think the Tiki pick is off myself. He did a lot for this team on the field.

        Yeah. He was a ******, but that doesn't make him overrated.

            I think Tiki is rated about right. He is considered one the very best Giants RB's ever but no one includes him in a discussion of the legendary league greats.
            No one remembers who came in second.

              Sometimes it's hard to separate the player from the person and that might be the case here. I liked Otis Anderson pretty much, but to rate him above Tiki as this guy does?????

                Tiki is underrated, and I'm not afraid to say it, he CARRIED the team from the early 2000's right up until Eli really took over the reigns of the offense.

                  IMO, I'd put Shockey as the No 1 overrated

                    Shockey is the all time 2nd Giants'TE behind Mark Bavaro

                      Anderson is a special situation though since most of his accomplishments and prime years were played elsewhere. As a result we might not fully appreciate him. He was one hell of a back.

                        Stat-wise yes, but I never felt like Shockey was a true Giant. He was a first round pick - never had a 1,000 yard season, never finished a full season... He was the definition of a cancer during his last years with us, and Kevin Boss was able to slide right in after he got hurt and produce.We didn't miss a beat with Shockey out of the line-up. That's why I say he is overrated.

                        *Edit - also after he left the Giants he went on to do absolutely nothing besides score a 1 yd TD in the SB. Even with Drew Brees throwing to him he wasn't a factor.

                          You can dislike what he said after he retired, but Tiki was a great player.

                            I'm not sure who really has been overrating Tiki but I feel he gets the correct amount of recognition for what he brought to us. Leonard Marshall or Y.A. Tittle is still my choice for most underrated.

                              This is an opinion about the Giants most over and underrated. I don't think Tiki belongs in either category.
