Tiki Barber beefed so much with the Giants that everyone forgot how great he was

    Tiki Barber ran the ball. The Giants liked that! Tiki Barber ran his mouth. The Giants didn't like that. While he statistically is the greatest running back in franchise history, the New York Giants and Tiki Barber became two ships passing in the night - but like if one of those ships would occasionally talk trash about the other ship.
    Without him, the Giants found the success that had eluded them while Barber was on the roster. And without them, Barber found ways to stay busy. He bashed Eli. He bashed Coughlin. And he made it so no one missed the running back who had retired in his prime.

    Amazing how his brother was such a class act... Another comment on here describes Tiki perfectly... Him leaving his pregnant wife for an intern says all you need to know about him. I'll take a 53 Ronde Barbers on my team any day of the week, but not one Tiki.

      The game took place in 2006 though. Yeah it gets confusing since the playoff games are connected to the year before. Too bad we can't call it 2005-06 season.

    It's simple. NFL players are nothing more than college kids when they join the league. As they age, more often than not they start displaying a level of maturity that would have saved a lot of heartache and drama, had they been that way when they were younger. We have seen this numerous times. This video implies that Braber brown-nosed his way back into the Giants team. I disagree; I call it simply growing up. Who knows how the Giants would have fared if Barber had been this way all along.

    4:38 Was Strahan really that huge?
    Edit: 10:12 OK Tiki wasn't a big guy, apparently.

    Is easy to judge a man leaving his 8 mo pregnant wife who he’s been for 11 years. Yes it’s foul to the core but how much dirty laundry do these so called critics have in their closets? Let him without sin cast the first stone. Love him or hate him, Tiki was at least transparent which I appreciated. I appreciated it so much, that it brought me joy when Tiki influenced Shockey when Shockey blasted the coaching staff primarily TC, on a lopsided road loss to Seattle. Sometimes, you just have to air it out & shelf the PC way. I don’t agree with most of Tiki’s actions, but the dude was transparent rather than a PC ass kisser. As a player, I salute Tiki! There’s a reason why the Mara’s requested Tiki & my guy Shockey to set at Wellington Mara’s bedside. Tiki made mistakes & acknowledged them. Skeptics need to get off their high horse & look at themselves in the mirror. Like they’re any better. Pff!

    Wtf?? Vicious takedown of Favre?
    2:24. Favre ducks and covers and Strahan does a gentle cover move.

    I used to work at the broncos back in 2015. We had our own Tiki. He was one of the video producers. He had been with the team for like a decade. But then he got mad at management about 3 games into the 2015 season, he quit for some college job. We won SB50 that year and we all received legit, $15k super bowl rings. That guy looked like a real dumb ass.

    I was so happy when the NY G-men won the Superbowl after Tiki's retirement, because he had talked so much crap about them. It was so great to see Tiki ringless eating Crow watching and discussing his former teammates Superbowl victory!!!

    Thanks to Kerry Collins? Nah. Thanks to a terrible game plan by Fassel and the coaching staff against the best defense in history. They should have given the ball to Tiki more.

    Looking at old NFL contracts is honestly more sad than old gas prices. This man was so happy he got 6yr 25mil. Meanwhile scrubs are doing 2year deals worth that
