Re: Tiki Barber To Unretire?

By the way, did anyone hear Shefter's comment about Riggins this morning on Mike & Mike? He was talking about Barber's possible return, and he mentioned that Marcus Allen and John Riggins, respectively, gained the most yards in a season at 36+. He was making the point that the two of them were very unique, and with regard to Riggins, he said that Riggo "was a physical freak of nature." I liked that.

Riggo was definitely a freak. A rare combo of size, speed, and guts.

He'll be careful not to let that fire spread to his bank account. It's illegal you know!

Yeah, the league was a lot different back then. And Riggo was running behind two, three, Hall of Famers. And they didn't take time off and come back at age 36, they were already in football shape. Big difference.

Ronde IS still playing very well. Granted, he's not a RB but who knows...Tiki did subtract 5 years of wear and tear, so maybe he could still play once he shakes off the rust.

Riggins and Allen are two totally different backs compared to Tikki. Should not even be mentioned in the same breath.

Like comparing Apples to Oranges. Who's gonna compare Hall-of-Famers to Tikki Barber who could not hold a job OUTSIDE of football and could not a BALL INSIDE football?

Seems Tiki has left his wife for a younger chick.

Re: Tiki Barber To Unretire?

No offense to Antonio Pierce and his need to have strong and pointed commentary for his TV job, but let me simply observe that there just MIGHT be a tad of jealousy creeping into his remarks about Tiki Barber.


Tiki may indeed never make an NFL squad and even if he does, there is no guarantee he will be any good at all.


At the same time, Antonio Pierce would be extremely lucky even to get an invitation to come to an NFL training camp in any capacity other than a reporter covering the events there.


I cannot read minds - - but I wonder if this is a factor in his comments...?

Re: Tiki Barber To Unretire?

What reason does Pierce have to be jealous of Tiki Barber?

Re: Tiki Barber To Unretire?

Barber might get an invite to an NFL camp and a chance to make a team.

I doubt that Pierce's agent could get Pierce such an invite - - unless it was for "replacement games".

Does that bother Pierce? I don't know - - but it might...
