Me-ki Barber

Tiki Barber is handsome, articulate, and very media savvy. He might be the most polished professional athlete in recent memory. But the guy is obviously a self-centered ass.

The press has been eating out of his hand for years. And now he is one them. So we can look forward to him playing the self-righteous anti-Pacman for years to come. Fantastic. Hopefully the recent spat between he and Eli Manning will start to chip away at his seemingly impeccable image. Tiki took a shot at Eli for not being a good leader. Eli fired back, saying "I guess I could have questioned his leadership skills last year with calling out the coach and having articles about him retiring in the middle of the season, and he lost the heart to play." Zinger!

Tiki, do you think maybe your insatiable quest for back pages (along with Michael Strahan and Jeremy Shockey) made it a little harder for Eli to assume the mantle of team leader?
