Tiki Barber calls Warren Sapp 'an idiot'

Hall of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp made some waves last week when he trashed former defensive end Michael Strahan while complimenting his former teammate Simeon Rice.

"Simeon was a better rusher than Michael Strahan any day of the week and twice on Sunday,” Sapp said. “[Rice] didn't rush the worst lineman. You know the right tackle is the worst of the five. Strahan played right end [against the opponent's left tackle] his first four years. When they were putting the label on him as a bust, they put 'B-U-S. OK, let's transition him on the other side and see if he can play in his fourth year.'

"They put him at right end and he couldn't do it, so they moved him to the weak guy.”

Now, you might ask why in the name of Canton, Ohio would Sapp bring this up. Former Giants running back Tiki Barber has an answer.

"Warren's an idiot," Barber told the NY Post on Monday. "He just wants to say things to be idiotic. I played with Stray for my whole career. He is the greatest of the great. He is a great teammate, he kept things light, but on game day he was as serious as a heart attack and it showed in his play.

"Warren doesn't know, never played with him," Barber said. "I don't put any credence in his opinion. I hope Stray doesn't let it bother him. I don't think it does.", Jeremy Shockey?
