Tiki has been a sleeze for most of his retirement, that being said come on. He was NOT over rated. He was damn good.
I hated Tiki for what he said many times, but no way is he the most overrated Giants player of all time. Not even close.
He won many games for us by himself in the early Eli era. He also saved TCs job when we played that last game vs Oakland and the game vs Washington. Without Tiki, Coughlin was gone in 06 and we most likely dont win 2 SB rings. Lets not forget his stats the last 5 years of his career. They rival stats of any RB in the history of the NFL over a 5 year period.
My sliding mock: (mid round pick)
1-Cyril Richardson G Baylor / CJ Mosely LB Bama
2-Shane Skov LB Stanford / Travis Swanson C Ark
3-Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida / Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers
4-Bryan Stork C Florida St / Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska
5-DeVonte Parker WR Louisville / Chris Watt G ND
6-Kareem Martin DE UNC / Jerome Smith RB Syracuse
now....I'm no Tiki lover.....but overrated?.....pure silliness
Gifford.... underrated?.....he is arguably the most celebrated sports figure in NY sports history......he is working to this day because of his fame as #16
he was the golden boy of NY and celebrated for decades after his playing career
these guys have no clue ....obviously
