This could very well be a PR stunt at this point, but Tiki Barber is back on the Giants case again. This time he's back to ragging on his former coach Tom Coughlin and he pens in his new book that the Giants' Coach was the reason he quit the game...
The recently retired star running back has used his new memoir to rip Big Blue boss Tom Coughlin, blaming his former head coach for driving him from the game he loved.I don't know about you, but Tiki Barber couldn't be more annoying at this point. I think NBC should have really watched the end of his career to see how much of a cancer he was to that team.
"If Tom Coughlin had not remained as head coach of the Giants, I might still be in a Giants uniform," Barber wrote in his upcoming book "Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond," excerpts of which were obtained by the Daily News.
"[Coughlin] robbed me of what had been one of the most important things I had in my life, which was the joy I felt playing football," Barber wrote. "I had lost that. He had taken it away."
NBC now has a Bob Costas (who wishes he was covering baseball), A Political Pundit, Two former players who bash their coaches, Peter King, and Chris Collinsworth. I know a bunch of you think this is the best pre-game and halftime team out there, but you might want to watch CBS this Sunday. Just change the channel when Shannon Sharpe talks.
