Big Statement From Former Giants Running Back

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Tiki Barber went to bat for his former quarterback Eli Manning in an argument Wednesday with CBS Sports Radio co-host Brandon Tierney.

“For Eli to crack that top five that you’re talking about of all time, hes gotta have that year, that 2011 season a couple more times and win another Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP,” Barber said. “And then I think he’s in the discussion of the top five of all time.”

“I think he’s better than Peyton.”
