On their Sirius Satellite Radio show last night, “The Barber Shop,” Ronde and Tiki Barber discussed the Super Bowl for a bit and Ronde asked his twin brother how he feels about his old team making the Super Bowl the season after he retired.
According to Tiki, he his happy for his old team and mentioned teammates Michael Strahan (of which he had a well-publicized feud a few years ago) and Amani Toomer, and also said he was still quite friendly with owners Jon Tisch and John Mara. He even went as far as to say that the Giants coaching staff “outcoached” their opponents, though he did not mention Tom Coughlin by name.
Of course, Tiki has not exactly endeared himself to Giant fans over the past year and change–his retirement announcement was incredibly self-indulgent and his criticisms of Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin were more sour grapes than anything else. He also said on his radio show that he was picking the Giants to win the Super Bowl, which is really more of him jumping on the bandwagon than through serious analysis.
It might be better for Tiki Barber to lay low during the next couple of weeks. There’s too much going on for anyone to pay attention to what he has to say.
