Tiki losing goal line carries?

Postby Transmogrifier » Tue Jul 29, 2003 2:25 pm

I heard that Tiki might be losing goal line carries because Fassel wants him to last the year. Did anyone else hear this? I was really high on Barber for this year, but this squashes things a bit.

Any info?

Heres the story i heard..
The Giants signed dorsey levens and told him that he was to be used primarily in the redzone. I head Fassel was the one that told Dorsey this. Also the Giants tried to sign Stacey Mack earlier this year which is more proof that they dont want Tiki getting tired out or injured in the red zone.

I heard the same thing. Don't remember where from though.

How credible do you think this is?

I just saw this: http://espn.go.com/nfl/columns/pasquare ... 33986.html


But I'm not sure they'll actually give Leven all those carries. I mean, he did average 5.5 yds/carry last year, but only one TD (running... one receiving as well). I think in crunch time, Tiki will HAVE to get the goal line carries.

Thoughts?

I love Tiki also, but this Levens deal is not good news for Tiki - however, I also would think Tiki would want his share (big) of the goal line opportunities....they will want to keep Tiki happy.
