Who'd have thunk it? Tiki Barber has shown a side of himself that I would have never thought existed. His comments about his former coach and, now, his former QB appear petty, ill willed and severely lacking in the class department. This is not the person we came to revere as one of the greatest Giants of all time. It almost seems as though he is listening to his publicist, trying to create a buzz which in turn will elevate his career. It is worth noting that his "celebrity" status has waned sinced he retired. There is nobody singing his praise for on field heroics and there appears to be alot less,if any, in the way of commercial endorsements as well as TV commercials featuring Benedict, oops, I mean, Barber.

Let us all remember what kind of player Tiki was before Coughlin. His level of play was elevating from his early years but he was a fumble happy, smallish back who would never have earned the accolades to which he must have become accustomed to if TC hadn't taught him how to secure the rock. How about a smidge of gratitude or maybe a hint of loyalty. It would appear that without Coughlin, Tiki would have never made the Pro Bowl and his current career wouldn't have materialized. It is apparent to me that at this point Barber will stoop to any depth to promote his own career at the expense of anyone who has helped him develop into the star he became, including his former team mates, coaches and even his integrity as a human being. What a dissappointment, our former, favorite son has become. Shame on him.
