If you haven’t heard, Tiki Barber defended former teammate Michael Strahan from Warren Sapp’s criticism by calling him an idiot. To be fair, Warren Sapp was only supporting his former teammate Simeon Rice by saying he had a better career then Strahan.
But Barber called Sapp an idiot, and it was every where. Warren Sapp didn’t exactly ease up on his stand either. He tweeted a photo showing Rice’s better sack per game rate than Strahan saying you can’t argue facts.
But Tiki thinks it was blown out of porportion.
“Look, I have nothing disparaging to say about Warren Sapp,” Barber said, via JoeBucsFan.com. “But here’s what I have to say: He has had a vendetta against Michael Strahan and I don’t even know why he has had a vendetta against Michael Strahan. Maybe because he can because he is a first ballot Hall of Famer and Michael wasn’t. I understand what he was trying to do and get Simeon Rice some credit for what Simeon was as a player and he was a fantastic player rushing the quarterback from the defensive end, but don’t do it at the expense of ‘Stra,’ who is my boy. He’s always had my back.”
