It’s almost like Tiki Barber wants to go get booed Sunday when he gets inducted to the Giants’ new Ring of Honor.
Showing a typical lack of self-awareness, Barber weighed in on his former coach Tom Coughlin Wednesday on Yahoo! Sports.
“I don’t know if he’s completely lost control of the team, but it’s definitely slipping away,” Barber said. “Right now, Tom Coughlin is at a crisis. His job is certainly in jeopardy.”
“Now all of a sudden [Coughlin] can’t coach? I don’t think that is the case,” Strahan told ESPNNewYork.com.
It’s hardly the first time Barber made unpopular comments that contrasted with Strahan. Tiki once weighed in on Strahan’s contract holdout, saying Strahan was greedy.
Barber’s penchant for sounding tone deaf goes beyond Coughlin. At one point during his video, host Charissa Thompson told Tiki, “You might need to come out of retirement, there’s no running game.”
Barber’s response: “I can’t tell you how many people have told me that.”
We’ll bet he hears something a little different on Sunday.
