    or maybe you didnt take to much stock of it? please share your thoughts.
    I didn't have a problem with JR calling Eli skittish just like I didn't have a problem with him saying Eli needed to 'self-correct' after 2010. Eli needs somebody to light a fire under him, because I honestly don't think TC and KG ever really did. Eli seems to perform better when somebody's pushing him and I hope that McAdoo will push Eli, too.
    One of these teams is not like the others

    what year is it ?i bumped my head.

    i was just wondering what fans were thinking when it was said and could only imagine the backlash if god forbid Tiki said it. they would knock him down a peg below OJ simpson in popularity.

    As crazy as this sounds, I would bet OJ is more popular with the Buffalo fan base than Tiki is with the Giants fan base.

    It's hard to comprehend, but I would lay money it's true.

    Probably.

    But's that's only because the GM runs the team and it's his job to judge the players. Whereas players who throw other players under the bus by criticizing them publicly - particularly players who have had significant performance issues themselves, like Tiki - usually (and quite correctly I might add) neither deserve nor receive a pass on that type of thing.

    I thought it was a fair comment. I believe he said it after the '06 season, and we all know that Eli's job was in fact in jeopardy (as was Coughlin's) had we not had a good season in '07.

    The comment pissed off Eliophiles but of course anything less than passionate jubilation at the mere mention of Eli has a way of setting them off.

    Pretty sure it was 2007, after the Vikings game. There was some pressure, but nothing remarkable.
