Tiki Barber is retiring in another few weeks or so and will be gone next season, but insists Tom Coughlin should be back. Barber has been Coughlin's biggest critic, but after Sunday's 27-13 victory over the Panthers broke a four-game losing streak, he endorsed the coach's return in 2007 and insists Coughlin deserves a contract extension. The vote of confidence came from an unexpected precinct, considering Barber publicly questioned Coughlin twice over the last 11 months. But he firmly said, "I do," when asked if he thinks the Giants should bring Coughlin back.

The Eagles spent the last two days talking about Tiki Barber's value to the New York Giants' offense. "He's an amazing guy," defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said. "He's still healthy, he still plays at a high level, and he's smart. He's one of the best in the NFL as far as the whole package. " The same could be said about the Eagles' Brian Westbrook. Jeremiah Trotter, in fact, said it is not a stretch to compare Westbrook to Barber. "I think Westbrook may be a little bit more elusive than Tiki," the Eagles linebacker said.

The playoff surge by the Eagles this season has been an unexpected feast after three consecutive losing years, but there has been one bone that continues to catch in their throats. The Eagles will try to dislodge the New York Giants from their craw Sunday, but, for the defense, getting that job done means stopping the run and, more specifically, limiting the success of multitalented back Tiki Barber. "He's hurt us both games we've played," middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter said.

IAM 62 YEARS old, and have been an Eagles fan since 1945. After the last Giants game, no one in the Eagles organization should have accepted a paycheck for that week. The defense hit like they were at a church social. If there had been music, they would have danced with the Giants. Tiki Barber and that clown Shockey should have been put on stretchers in the first quarter. Hit somebody like No. 60, Mr. Eagle, used to hit. How can you have a "trick play" when the people can't catch the ball.

The New England Patriots proved that statistics don't win football games - defense and perseverance do. Outgained in a first half, 199-29, New England rallied behind Tom Brady and Kevin Faulk and beat the New York Giants yesterday, 17-6. The Eagles visit the Giants next Sunday afternoon (1 o'clock, Fox Philadelphia). "We're just an emotional team," said defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had two deflections that were turned into interceptions and a sack that stopped what looked like a New York touchdown drive.

Nothing ever looked difficult for Tiki Barber. Until last night. The smooth-running, smooth-talking, smooth-headed New York Giants running back wasn't wearing his characteristic smile as he walked through the rain and into a dark tunnel at 7:56 p.m. Barber's melancholy walk was the last one he'll make in uniform. Arguably the finest back in the franchise's long history, the retiring Barber had just run for 137 yards in his final NFL game, a 23-20 Eagles victory in a NFC playoff game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Tiki Barber, wrapped up so thoroughly in winter clothes that only his piercing eyes were visible, stood in the press box before yesterday's NFC championship game and wondered how his twin brother, Tampa Bay cornerback Ronde Barber, would deal with the cold. "I don't care how long you play in this stuff, you never get used to it," said Tiki Barber, the standout running back of the New York Giants. He needn't have worried. Considering the ease with which he batted down passes, clung to Eagles receivers, fielded punts and tackled, Ronde Barber made the 60 minutes pass as pleasantly as a sun-splashed Buccaneers practice in Tampa.

The first time it was the cutbacks. Yesterday it wasn't anything nearly so devious. Yesterday, the Giants ran it right down the Eagles' throat. "I thought we'd play the run better," said Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson, after the Giants' Ron Dayne and Tiki Barber combined for 145 rushing yards on 39 carries in their team's 24-7 victory over the Eagles. "We didn't play the run very well," Johnson said. "It comes down to making plays. " The rushing numbers weren't off the charts or anything.

THREE-TIME All-Pro Ronde Barber is retiring after a 16-year career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that included a Super Bowl title and five Pro Bowl appearances. The Bucs announced last night that the 38-year-old twin brother of retired New York Giants running back Tiki Barber will not return to play on a defense overhauled since the end of last season. Tampa Bay acquired Darrelle Revis, Dashon Goldson and second-round draft pick Johnthan Banks for its secondary. The retirement was first reported by Fox Sports.com, which quoted Barber as saying: "I've had a better run than I ever could've dreamed of having.

Tiki Barber, the recently retired New York Giants running back, said playing under head coach Tom Coughlin was difficult at times. "Coach Coughlin is very hard-nosed, and I didn't get a lot of time off, couldn't sit down and rest myself, and so it was a constant grind - a physical grind on me that started to take its toll," Barber said on Tuesday at a media conference introducing him as a new correspondent for NBC's "Today Show. " "The grind took its toll on me and really forced me to start thinking about what I wanted to do next.

SOMETIMES, change just feels like something that is routine - a necessary evolution to adapt to the times. Then there are changes that make you look inward and think about your position in the status quo. Yesterday, to me, the Eagles made a change like that when they announced that they were letting go of longtime public address announcer Dan Baker after 29 seasons, during which he never missed a game at Veterans Stadium or Lincoln Financial Field....

Whether it is defiance or delusion, Michael Vick's approach to his fumbling problems seems unrealistic. After he twice lost fumbles in a 16-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Eagles quarterback said Sunday that he has "never really had a problem fumbling the football. " This could be an attempt to alter the narrative, except when facts get in the way. Vick has eight fumbles (five lost) this season and 84 fumbles (39 lost) in his career - more than any player now in the NFL. The NFL's career leader in fumbles is Brett Favre, whose 166 fumbles came over 302 games.

  Coughlin's our guy because he has evolved Giants Coach Tom Coughlin was one of Tiki Barber's favorite topics in his playing days, and nothing has changed in retirement. Barber, the Giants' all-time leading rusher, says his former coach is facing a crisis because of the perception that he is losing the team after two straight one-sided losses. Barber, who had his share of blowups with Coughlin before retiring after the 2006 season, noted that once the perception appears in the media, it becomes reality.

Renaldo Wynn started his NFL career under Tom Coughlin, and there's a chance the Giants' 34-year-old defensive end will end his career under Tom Coughlin. Anyone familiar with Coughlin's reputation as the unyielding, hard-edged, taciturn coach who never met a player who didn't dislike him might wonder what Wynn did to deserve such a fate. But apparently, even some of the most intractable football coaches - and they can be a remarkably stubborn lot - are capable of making concessions to changing times.

It is time to applaud fantasy owners who recognized the potential in Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and seized the opportunity to draft him. After a record-setting game by the rookie, it is easy to forget that in August, Peterson was labeled more risk than reward. The critics said Peterson was injury-prone and risky because of an upright running style vulnerable to dangerous hits. Besides, the Vikings already had a starting running back in Chester Taylor. Many fantasy draft magazines ranked Peterson below 20 other running backs, including Taylor.

Nobody has been foolish enough to hang a banner in the Eagles' locker room proclaiming that their mission has been accomplished. The members of the Eagles' defense know that the body of work is much too narrow to make any bold declarations about their ability to stop the run. This is just the beginning. "We should be first," middle linebacker Omar Gaither said when someone pointed out yesterday that the Eagles rank fourth in the NFL in rushing defense. "Obviously, we haven't played against the great rushing teams.

West Philadelphia's Jabril Brown says two of his favorite running backs are Reggie Bush and Tiki Barber. So it's no surprise that Brown runs much the way Bush does, and as Barber did - with a nice mix of speed and power. The 5-foot-7, 170-pound senior halfback carried 15 times for a career-high 153 yards as the visiting Speedboys nipped previously undefeated Lincoln, 20-18, yesterday in a Public League Blue Division matchup. "I think I have the ability to run inside and outside," Brown said.

Tiki Barber says he retired because New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin robbed him of his love of the game. In excerpts from his book, Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond, obtained by the New York Daily News, the former Giants running back writes that he might still be playing if Coughlin was not still coaching the Giants. The book goes on sale Sept. 18. "If Tom Coughlin had not remained as head coach of the Giants, I might still be in a Giants uniform," the excerpt in the Daily News said.
