Tiki Barber is dusting off his cleats and making a return to the NFL. Tiki was the valedictorian of his High School class. Intelligent, yes. But not smart.
The Top 10 Reasons Why Tiki Barber’s A Moron:
10) Trashed players, former teammates, and coaches to the point where he was an outcast.
9) Trashing players is not the smartest thing in the world to do when you are trying to develop a job as a broadcaster and you need access to people.
8) Alienated fans, helping his marketing quotient to seek even lower lows.
7) Announced his retirement in the middle of the 2006 season, selfishly trying to make the season about him instead of the team.
6) Let the little head do the talking for the big head,
5) which cost him dearly in a divorce…
4) and probably was the final straw in losing his NBC contract.
3) He retired with plenty of gas left in the tank, with perfect timing a year before his team of 10 years made a title run.
2) Making a pitiful money grab in 2011 with a 36 year old empty tank
1) Subjecting himself, a running back, to unadulterated punishment.
At least the Giants have passed on you, Tiki. Good luck finding a sucker amongst the other 31 teams. But be careful what you wish for, you just might get to play again. For a bright guy, Tiki, you are not very smart.
