Eagles fans are blasting Tiki Barber for his take on Daniel Jones and Jalen Hurts
It’s almost time for the NY Giants to take the field against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. These two fanbases don’t like one another, and even Big Blue legend Eli Manning knows that people are going to be ready to troll him while he’s in town.
For fellow team legend Tiki Barber, he’s also receiving plenty of wrath from the Philly faithful. Leading up to the action, Barber said that he thinks Daniel Jones is more prepared for this big moment than Jalen Hurts.
Jones is playing his best football, while Hurts was hurt late in the season. Does Barber have a point here about Danny Dimes? Eagles nation doesn’t think so, which is why they’re letting Tiki have it.
Tiki Barber just made the Giants-Eagles game even more intriguing
"“I think Daniel Jones is in a better position to win this game than Jalen Hurts is for a lot of reasons,” Barber said. “One, Daniel Jones is peeking right now. We’ve seen it the last few weeks of the regular season and obviously he dominated against Minnesota.”"
Barber may be a little biased, but he strongly feels that Jones will be ready to help the Giants stun the No. 1-seeded Eagles on Saturday night. The pressure is on for Jones, but he just showed everyone what he’s made of against Minnesota, as the tossed for 301 yards, rushed for 78 and scored two touchdowns. Eagles fans are seeing things differently, though.
Hurts missed two of the last three regular season games due to a shoulder injury, but he’s back to full health and ready to put on a show vs. the G-Men. However, the New York defense is also close to 100 percent, and they’ll want to make Hurts’ life miserable from the opening snap in this Divisional Round dance.
The Eagles are considered strong favorites for this battle, but the Giants don’t give a damn. They’re hoping to post yet another upset, and Jones will no question play a big role in things. Barber has full faith in Danny Dimes delivering for Big Blue. If the Giants don’t win, however, a lot of people in Philadelphia will be ready to go after Barber, no doubt about that.
