Dances too much. Doesnt like to get hit. Doesnt block. Looks like he's waiting for a contract extension before he extends himself too much.

Strange.  If you listen to local NY Sports radio today they are acting like the giants won the super bowl because they didn’t lose to the steelers 80-3

He has always been like and has always been over rated.  His normal games are often like that except every game or two he racks of a 65 yard run.  Even in college he had a poor yards after contact stat.  He is good in the passing game.

He is definitely one of those guys whose average yards per carry has been respectable as a result of breaking a few big ones.  When he doesn't break one, his numbers can be lousy.

I remember teasing Scott Dierking about this pre-draft. Barkley had a lot of no-show games in college, too.

Joe Judge and their Oline suck.  The Steelers knew exactly when to run blitz and the giants couldn’t block it last night 

 

bears will do the same

If you are talking about WFAN, that station loves the Giants. They talk about Eli like he is his brother.

A couple of interesting things.

Fanduel had an odds boost yesterday for Barkley to get ovr 9.5 total yards rushing -500 odds boosted to even money.  Thank god they had a $50 bet limit on that.

When Barry Sanders rushed for 2000 yards, he had a total of 53 yards rushing during his first 2 games.

I don’t listen to WFAN anymore.  I was listening to Chris Canty and a couple of his banana boys act like the Giants played great yesterday

His style reminds me of Sanders - but I don't think he is anywhere near as good.

For sure. It's like when you read stellar reviews about a crappy product and you just know that they're plants, but that is still really funny. Funny partly because it is so true and partly because it accomplished so much more than going the derogatory name(s) route. Good ole nepotism, it sure smells like it; but what it really is over there is burping up the Ghost of Fatcesa like bad pizza. Well done, haha.
