Tiki Barber to possibly retire???

Saw on ESPN they're talking about Tiki might retire after this year.

He's only 31, right now has most yards of all NFL RB's 531 and still going strong.

Stats: (roughly as of now)
9,300 rush yards and 50 rushing TD's, 4,700 receiving and 12 rec TD's

Should he retire? If he does...does his stats get him in the hall?

It is hard to say if he should retire. If he is thinking of retiring, then I am sure he has good reasons and he is doing what he feels is best for him.

As far as the Hall, it is hard to say he is one that if he got in I wouldn't object but if he was held out of it I could see that too.

Between writing childrens' books and wanting to do TV commentating, he feels that playing in the NFL isn't worth as much anymore. Gotta love a guy with passion!

He'll go in the Hall for the simple fact that he left as the Giant's all-time leading rusher.

No way he makes it to the HOF if he retires now.

10 years with only 5 of those being anything stat worthy. Out of his 9k yds almost 7k came during that 5 year period.

He just hasn't had a long enough career to warrant being elected based on good stats since 2001.

I agree!!!!!

NO WAY he gets in. He's good, but he'd have to be good for 10yrs!!!

I'm not sure why he'd want to retire right now because it sure doesn't look like he is slowing down. I'd also venture to say it might be health related.

Everything I have seen it just seems like he wants to move on to the next phase of his life, and worry more about his off field business than on field.

I'll say it's health related. His brain has obviously been knocked loose to make him say something this dumb. Some people just don't appreciate what they've got.

I went to Jr High with the Barber twins. There cousin Cedrick Barber was my running back when I was a HS QB. Cedrick was and still is the all time leading rusher for our school and still has the HS single game TD record in Virginia. He scored 7 rushing TD's and 1 Recieving TD in our 1988 home coming game. Funny thing, the guy was a like 5'5" 175 lbs pinball, he bounced off everything and had a burst speed like John Forces Funny Car, LOL. I think he ended up at Appalachian State for college ball and is now a HS Guidance Counselor back in my hometown. Small world I guess.

Might as well retire while you still have your health.
