    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.

    "Thanks to Kerry Collins"??? No, DON'T BLAME Him for that Ass Whooping the Ravens put on them..... The 00 Ravens did that to ALL QB's that season especially in the plyoffs..

                      Giants lost to the Panthers in the 2005 wildcard, not 2006. Not hard to look up facts

                        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.

                            Kerry Collins was not the reason the giants didn’t win that Super Bowl the giants just went against the greatest defense in nfl history anyone would have looked pedestrian that day

                                    Totally agree. Without Tiki as a distraction, it did help the team.

                                          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.
                                                  Don't do drugs kids, drugs are bad, mkay.

                                                        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.

It was so great to see Tiki ringless eating Crow watching and discussing his former teammates Superbowl victory!!!
