    I have to admit, Tiki Should be praised for what he said about Eli

    Look, I was mad when Tiki left his wife and went crazy but was his remarks about Eli really a bad thing? Eli was a joke before his big play. Eli was a funny guy. I remember when he use to throw bad balls then go to the sideline with that goofy look on his face. He got mad at one player cause the player made a mistake, yet Eli threw an ints on the next play. The player Eli got mad at should got on his case. I was joking on the last part though.

    Yet something happened after those comments Tiki made. I think Tiki tried to feul the desire in Eli. Eli needed somebody to tell him that his play needed to improved inorder to be a leader. Harooni, I apalogize to you about liking Tiki. I was in the wrong and forgave Tiki for being the person he was. Thank you Tiki for telling that use to be stupid qb that he didn't play like a leader but like a sucka. Remember Eli always look downward when Former Giant Shockey was in his face talking about why you didn't throw me the ball. Yet Breese got on Shockey's behind when Shockey was with the Saints. Now Eli doesn't play that mess and doesn't look goofy any more. I believe that Tiki had a part in it. Oh and he maybe threw our coach under the bus as well but Coughlin was a meany who did overwork the players and the players admit that Coughlin was too mean. Coughlin changed as well so I also thank Tiki for that as well. Without Tiki's remarks and the playrs complaining, they wanted to play for our Superbowl coaching coach.

    Many people should be grateful that Tiki said bad things about Eli. They was not made to throw Eli under the bus but to feul Eli. To make Eli say Oh yeah well watch me.

    u do realize his first yr as the starter with an offseason as the guy/no competition, we went 11-5 right? and we havent looked back yet. hes thrown for at least 3k and 20 td every yr hes been the ful time starter...granted he wasnt at the level hes @ now when he first came into the league, but his play now is absolutely a progression and culmination of all those yrs...i never thought he was a joke and knew, bc of his play, he would 1 day be what he is today...and thats not bs, i said it millions of times here when it was crazy(crazier i guess) to do so

    You give Tiki too much credit for being smart. What do you think he was some kind of valedictorian?

    My main gripe with Tiki has always been the constant drum beat of his brilliance off the field. He spawned it, promoted it to excess and some here have been coopted by it. He was a great player on the field for us and arguably our best RB ever. Beyond that................. not much of a teammate, because everything in the end was all about him. One quick example: pre-announcing his retirement so that every week all the reporters would be talking about life after Tiki, in every city we visited. That was a typically selfish distraction introduced to pump up his own post football value but it served as a distraction for the TEAM.

    If he were half as smart as he believes he is, he would be Walter Cronkite or our next Senator by now. Right?

    We all should go easy on our rhetoric (starting with me) regarding Tiki but to suggest that the boy wonder had a grander more noble gesture in mind when he criticized Eli is just silly. Isn't it?

    Eli was always driven. What tiki said made no difference to Eli's success or failure.

    Eli said the Giants got the best quarterback in the draft after they traded for him.

    I've never questioned his drive.

    I admit,i was one of the guys against eli at first,then he proved me wrong.I proudly admit he proved me wrong,time and time again.Eli is driven just like peyton is.I respect eli,give him credit and actually admire how hes handled NY,the media and more.(but I still hate gildbright.)I told people if i ever met the man,i would eat crow and apologize for being wrong about him.Wheres tiki now????,,,on SNY talking more crap on the giants.To me,tiki is two faced,and all about him.Hes nothing like his brother ronde.Giants are still better off without him.

    That is the last thing I wanted to hear after he forced a trade. Just come in and play ball. It worked out in our favor but those comments and his rejection of San Diego reeks of an arrogant guy who places himself above the league.
