Tiki Barber beefed so much with the Giants that everyone forgot how great he was

Make sure you subscribe to SB Nation and don't forget to hit the bell so you never miss an episode of Beef History. If you actually want to relive the Super Bowl that I tried to kindly not remind you of, check out our episode of the Worst about it here: pl-vision.com/detail/wideo-aRWnA7XFSq0.html
Tiki Barber ran the ball. The Giants liked that! Tiki Barber ran his mouth. The Giants didn't like that. While he statistically is the greatest running back in franchise history, the New York Giants and Tiki Barber became two ships passing in the night - but like if one of those ships would occasionally talk trash about the other ship.
Without him, the Giants found the success that had eluded them while Barber was on the roster. And without them, Barber found ways to stay busy. He bashed Eli. He bashed Coughlin. And he made it so no one missed the running back who had retired in his prime.

  • 2:22 "vicious take down of Brett Favre!?" Uh, no. There was nothing "vicious" about it. It was planned. Favre and Strahan spoke about it beforehand, and Favre 'let' him get the record breaking sack. As you can see in the footage, Favre just fell down as Strahan kinda dove at him but bare;y touched him.

  • Ronde Barber is the better Barber while we’re at it.. Saquon Barkley>Tiki Barber Numbers don’t always mean you’re one of the best at a level of competition as demanding as the NFL, Tiki Barber will always fall into the category of players whose ego hurt his team, there’s a reason why the Giants won a SB the year after he retired and another one a few years later. I still find it hilarious that Tiki called out Eli over “leadership”, Eli’s entire career he’s lead by example not with his mouth, which might be why he won 2 SuperBowls ...

  • Lifelong NYG fan here and its crazy how Tiki's legacy has become. We loved him, til we hated him. Plus Strahan has pretty much done the stuff that Tiki wanted to do..but even more succesfully. SB rings plus a much stronger tv career. So I wouldnt be surprised if there is still some level of jealousy. But all in all, I am grateful for Tiki's career. He became the legit feature back(eventually) after us Giants fans had been without 1 since Rodney Hampton(1 of my childhood faves). I enjoyed him as a player. But Saquon has the talent and drive to pretty much eradicate Barber's records. Its just a shame that a guy like Tiki is essentially persona non grata. Hope he can get back in the fold and make ammends w the teammates he turned off.

  • John Wall and Marcin Gortat could be an interesting one. Isiah Thomas with Jordan and Pippen could also be a long one since he feuded them both, so alost like a 2 for 1 video for y'all. If you wanna go old school, Ali-Frazier. Pretty much all sports fans in their 20s or older may know, but could be a great retroactive video for us and a great reminder of the maybe the best individual fued to the younger fans. Bird-Magic, Clemens-Piazza, Shaq-Kobe and Harding-Kerrigan are the very very obvious ones that I am sure you guys have been requested hundreds of times. Federer-Nadal, Arnie-Jack are both sports that are not huge in NA but still great fueds. If you want to do ones beyond athletes, Rozelle-Al Davis and Martin-Steinbrenner are good ones too. These are the fueds that I can think of with actual beef and an abundance of trash talk and bulletin board material, not just two people who happen to be good at the same time in the same field and the media dubbing it a "rivalry". Hope some of these suggestions come true, keep up the grwat wor the sports community really appreciates it!

  • Tiki Barber was a good NFL back, but nothing great. In football, when a player cries and makes the entire game about himself and his own touches and his own brand, the team suffers. That’s what makes the game great. It is a TEAM game. See ya, SHOCKEY, OBJ, and BARBER. Seeeeeee ya. You never won anything, you dopes.
