Here’s a rather insightful moment from Warren Sapp on Rich Eisen’s podcast yesterday — Sapp correctly nails Barber’s behavior as a teammate to the proverbial wall. From the NFL:
“I didn’t think much of him when he did play,” Sapp said. ”I mean that’s the whole point. He was a fumbler all the way through his life, and then all of a sudden, somebody taught him how to hold the ball up high and then he (left the Giants) and said, Eli (Manning) can’t lead them and they’ll never win a championship.
“That kind of lends to who I’m talking about. This is the same guy. This is all encompassed into the same thing. There’s no way you turn your back on your teammates that block for you, that gave you the ball on short fields and did whatever they did. … There’s still no reason for you to attack your teammates.”
Strahan didn’t disagree with that assessment.
“Sapp is 100 percent right,” he said. “Only thing is, if it comes to playing football, he can play.”
