    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Tom Coughlin has one regret about Tiki Barber: that he couldn't convince the New York Giants running back to keep his opinions out of the public spotlight.

    On Friday, the New York Giants coach told reporters during the NFL's annual scouting combine he wished Barber hadn't used the media to voice his strong opinions and wasn't sure why Barber blamed the coaching staff for pushing him into retirement.

    Coughlin really made Tiki look dumb today. Coughlin threw in his face the fact that he cured Tiki's fumbling problems and it was only under him that Tiki had the three best years of his career.

    He also pointed out that if the long practices were such a grind on the Giants then why have they won the regular season finale in every year he has been here. And in those three wins Tiki averaged 177 yards. How worn down could he have been to average that.

      Tiki has been making himself look dumb for a long time now. He's disrespectful, loves to put the blame on everyone else, never takes accountabilty when things go wrong, always tries to take credit for his hard work, thinks he's smarter than he is, thinks he had a better career than he had and is just plain selfish... not to mention.. ugly.

          Tiki has really turned me off with his diva attitude. You know youre in the wrong when you make Coughlin look like the innocent one. Like I said before, of all people, Tiki should be the last person criticizing Coughlin. Coughlin made him into the player he was. I don't get it.

              What's that got to do with anything. Tom Coughlin "fixed" him.

                  If he regrets it why keep jabbing back at Barber?

                    He hasn't jabbed back. This is the first time. What do you want him to do? Barber has called him out far too many times. If I was Coughlin, Id be pissed. Barber wouldn't be Barber without Coughlin. What Barber is doing is very disrespectful.

                      If Barber wants to move on and be done with the game he should do just that stop bringing up old stuff I know the media is going to ask but he doesn't have to give a comment.

                        Tiki's arrogance is just plain astonishing. For someone who claims to be intelligent he sure seems socially stunted.

                          Ironic part was he was a good boy so to speak when he sucked and couldnt hold on to the ball, but once he became an all pro and successful, i think it got to his head.

                            tiki is kinda tarnishing his legacy a little and should just shutup- he did wonders with the giants and will always b remembered as a good player but he should shut his mouth- what is trying to do? yes he is entitled to speak but also his best years were under coughlin and i dont kno what he is trying to do

                              Exactly my point to some of the other giants fans saying he is right.. I dont discount Tiki being right or wrong, to me thats not the issue. The issue is just going out classy, and even if that means lying just to save face for your franchise, self, and old coach, than so be it. That to me is classy putting yourself behind the good of the coach and franchise one last time. But once again in that interview when he retired showed, that put a mic in his face and he just tells all.
