    Every offseason it's something with Tiki. After we missed the playoffs in 2009 and 2010, he called Coughlin out. 2011, SB victory. He, with no success, attempts a comeback last year. Now this.

    I don't mind that he's become the butt of jokes, but I just don't agree with this.

    Nice block by a hustling Rosie Brown on Frank's first run.

    Frank's a HOF'er, how can he be underrated?

    Tiki's the most hated Giant, how can he be overrated?

    John Mendenhall was underrated. Phil Simms was underrated - as SI picked him as the most underrated player of all time some years ago.

    Corey Webster is overrated. Chris Canty was overrated. Dave Brown was overrated by George Young.

    Agreed. There were more than a few games when he carried the entire offense.

    The Tiki thing seems like the writers went out of their way to come up with a justification for taking a shot at him. Tiki garnered respect during his career, but outside of this board, I am not sure he ever seen as dominant.
    He carried the team at times, but I am not sure that earned him a widespread rating as dominant.

    As for Frank...you get in the HOF, you kinda have to let the "underrated" thing go. I would think that the writer would have instantly thought of non-HOF QB Phil SImms and went that way.
    On the very same day in early 2014 when the Giants sign Eli to an extension, GmenNFCBeasts will be featured in the first story on the nightly news.
    All of his neighbors will describe him as, "a quiet man who kept to himself"

    Tiki is a lot of things...many of them not so great. But "overrated" is most certainly not one of those things.
