Tiki turns around on Tom Coughlin

In September, when the Giants were struggling at 1-2, former Giants tailback Tiki Barber pounced.

“I don’t know if he’s completely lost control of the team, but it’s definitely slipping away,” Barber said at the time.  “Right now, Tom Coughlin is at a crisis.  His job is certainly in jeopardy.”

Tiki has changed his tune.  In a video at Yahoo! Sports, Tiki picks Coughlin as the midseason coach of the year.

And now Tiki has jinxed Coughlin and the Giants.

    Not counting guys of Dave Meggett caliber, is there any former player who embarrasses himself more than Tiki?

    Tiki would have commented further, but he dropped his laptop.

    He turned around on Tom Coughlin just like he used to turn around when he played……after the ball was stripped from him and he fumbled.

    Iron Mike Tyson has some advise for Tiki. “Fade into bolivian”…….

    It seems that every time Coughlin seat gets hot after a slow start he winds up turning things around by week 5 or 6, last time people were calling for his job he took the Giants to the Superbowl.

    Can this guy just go away? He’s just bitter they won a ring immediately after he quit. His brother, by contrast, keeps trying on mediocre or less teams. I’m not a Giants fan, but why does this guy believe his opinion is so valued?

    @puddinpouch who says:

    Well, Im guessing it’s because people keep asking him questions… then posting his answers where people like “puddingpouch” ( great name, seriously)anxiously respond.

    @benh999: Ryan Leaf might have that honor.

    tiki needs to just go away.

    he is bitter we won a superbowl after he retired.

    and Florio just “Eddie Mushed” us .

    which way is the wind blowing? that’s the way Tiki will go. for such a “smart” guy, he really doesn’t provide any in-depth analysis at all. i guess that’s why his TV career never got off the ground.

    Who cares what Tiki has to say? Who keeps asking him questions and why? Only thing I can figure is that those asking the questions know he will make a fool of himself when he opens his mouth.

    Thanks for screwing up the site. I got an email last week saying I could log in as usual, but word press already had someone with my user name. Way to go 😦

    Tiki Barber is a TOOL, even if he is a
    Wahoo. I’ll even take Millen’s opinion over Tiki’s and, well….’nuff said.

    When is the last time we heard anything about Tiki that did not involve The Giants… Oh yeah, it was when he canned from his Today Show gig.

    tiki needs to remember how it took him almost all of his career to turn around his fumbling problem. hes fumbled more in a year than the giants have since hes left

    Just what is a Tiki? Is it like a hairball without the hair?
