Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber is at it again.
Publicly upset over his split with the team and his relationship with head coach Tom Coughlin, Barber has not shied away from comments in the past. The timing of these, however, particularly during the Giants most recent swoon, will ruffle some feathers.
Wiring a column for TheXLog.com, Barber discussed all things Giants.
“The last three seasons have been marred by collapse,” Barber wrote. “A once vaunted running game and stingy-aggressive defense have given way to mediocrity and Eli Manningbeing the only saving grace.
Hopes of dynastic Super Bowl runs have morphed into ‘let’s hope we win more than we lose.’”
As to coach Coughlin:
“And in the midst of a three game losing streak, after consecutive ugly losses, and potentially on the verge of making it four with the undefeated Green Bay Packers next on the docket, how do we “fairly” evaluate Tom Coughlin?” Barber wrote. “Maybe I’m not qualified to answer that because I’m not in that locker room anymore; However, watching from afar, I get the feeling that things aren’t necessarily “all good” over at MetLife Stadium.”
Just like Tiki, he had to throw a jab to Coughlin and reference the fact that he’s no longer a Giant.
