On a day the Giants’ Pro Bowl running back was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his terrific performance in Sunday’s 27-14 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome, he created a buzz among fans and the media for comments he made yesterday to The New York Times. In an interview, Barber said he is leaning toward retiring after this season, his 10th with the team. Barber has made similar comments several times in recent months, but these quotes were the strongest indication yet that the 2006 season will be his last.

I was really shocked when I read this headline, he's in the begging of is prime, and like you mentioned he's only played 10 seasons in this league. I don't understand why he would rather go in the annoucement booth then playing professional football. You problable know this but it seems it's only running backs that retire during the prime.

-Robert Smith
-Jim Brown

and now maybe Tiki Barber.
