      Tiki Barber is way better. Eddie George only averaged like 3.5 ypc for his career. Sure he could yet 100 yards in a game, but it would take him like 30 carries. He really went downhill in his ypc average after having over 400 attempts in 2000.

        You know how hard it is to be able to carry the ball 30 times in a game week after week? That's durability that rarely comes around.

          Yeah, but by the time he was 28, he was washed up. And as history indicates, guys have over 400 carries in a season severely decline. So don't be surprised if and when Larry Johnson starts to go downhill severely fast. He was already 24 when he got to the NFL.

              Both had good seasons. I'm taking Tiki Barber.

                Eddie was better. Tiki was awesome those last 3 or 4 years though. Neither should be in the hall. What's my reasoning? Go loo at the list of all the hall of fame RBs so far and you'll agree.

                  i think tiki has a better shot at the hall just because of the way each ended their careers. George faded at the end of his career, while tiki had his best years at the end of his.

                    Not sure what George brings to the table that Tiki doesn't. I mean, George did not have one season with over 4 YPC.....and he is in a hall of fame discussion?

                    Tiki can be debated and as of right now I don't think he should be in, but he was a much better back than George.

                      Tiki isnt a winner. He never got the Giants anywhere and didnt really imerge as a RB until the end of his career.

                      Neither make the Hall of Fame. Its not baseball where everyone to ever make an all-star game seems to get in eventually.

                        Um, the hardest HOF to get into is the baseball HOF, what are you talkin about?

                        Tiki carried us to the playoffs in Eli's 2nd year.

                        And he was our offense the year we went to the SB in 2000. He's done his part, he's definately a winner.

                          Since when do we argue about the overall quality of borderline HOF players? How is this really relevant to anything? These guys aren't the same type of back, so comparisons in terms of yards per touch and such are skewed. The whole topic makes little sense to me.
