Tiki Ticked?: Barber Mulls Missed Super Bowl
Did anyone even question if Tiki Barber was mad?
A couple of months before the season, Barber announced his retirement from the NFL. Many people said that Barber still had years left, but nevertheless said goodbye to Barber and knocked him off the chart.
Oddly enough, the year he reitred, the New York Giants go to the Super Bowl. This raises the question: is Tiki mad?
Barber was one of the best running backs in the NFL and would have liked to be in this year's Super Bowl, assuming the Giants would have still played him. Would Barber have helped the Giants Win?
His career ended with an average of 5.1 yards per carry at the end of 2006, while Ahmad Bradshaw ended this season at 6.1 ypc and Brandon Jacobs at 4.4 ypc. Considering Jacobs' and Bradshaw's averages had grown, the Giants would probably have been better with Tiki!
Would that have had an effect in the Giants' position? You can't really tell, but I would assume it wouldn't have.
This past weekend, I went to Tiki's house and asked him some questions.
I asked, "Tiki, are you frustrated, and do you regret retiring?"
"I am a little bit disappointed, but always happy for my Giants," Barber responded.
"Who are you rooting for?"
"Of course the Giants. I would never root for the Patriots, even though I respect them," Barber said.
"Do you think the Giants are better without you?"
"There is no way I could answer that. The only thing I could say is, I am glad their hard work payed off."
I struggled so much to get these answers, but it payed off in the end. Truthfully, we can't tell if Barber is really ticked, but we do know he is a Giants fan all the way!
Hopefully, we will see him at the game cheering them on, but for now, all we can say is, Barber doesn't totally regret his retirement.
Barber does still hope he will be in the Hall of Fame someday.
