New York Giants all-time leading rusher Tiki Barber has something to say to Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend Warren Sapp and it’s not pretty.

According to Barber, Sapp’s an “idiot.”

The war of words started when Sapp decided to tell The Tampa Tribune that fellow Buccaneers legend Simeon Rice was a better pass-rusher than the Giants’ Michael Strahan (per Paul Scwhartz of The New York Post):

“Nobody ever talks about Simeon,” Sapp said in quotes published in the Tampa Tribune. “Simeon was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday.”

Sapp reportedly believes Rice was the better player simply because Strahan had it easy throughout his carer and was able to line up across from the right tackle. Generally speaking the best pass-blocker on the team resides at left tackle to protect a quarterback’s blind side.

Barber certainly didn’t like the comments from Sapp:

“Warren’s an idiot,” Barber said on Monday while attending the Big Daddy Celebrity Golf Classic at Oheka Castle in Huntington. “He just wants to say things to be idiotic. I played with Stray for my whole career. He is the greatest of the great. He is a great teammate, he kept things light, but on game day he was as serious as a heart attack and it showed in his play.”

Which side of the fence do you fall on in regards to this issue? Is Sapp right? Was Rice better than Strahan? Or do you agree with what Tiki had to say about Sapp?
