Eli Manning vs Tiki Barber......Who won?


Over the last few days, Eli Manning and Tiki Barber have been exchanging digs. (Full Story here) Tiki started it by saying Mannings

"personality hasn't been so that he can step up, make a strong statement and have people believe that it's coming from his heart. Last year about Week 12 I turned over the offensive motivational speech to Eli and he was gung-ho to do it, but he was uncomfortable doing it," Barber continued. "I think a lot of it had to do with vets being around - myself, Jeremy Shockey, Plaxico Burress. He didn't feel like his voice was going to be strong enough and it showed. Sometimes it was almost comical the way that he would say things."


Manning fired back saying
"I'm not going to lose any sleep about what Tiki has to say," Manning said before practice at the University at Albany. "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 (how) he's lost the heart (to play). As a quarterback you're reading that your running back has lost the heart to play the game and it's about the 10th week. I can see that a little bit at times."


Even though he hasn't played as well as expected, I think Manning will either sink or swim this season.

As for the war of words between him and Tiki, he definitely won.
