Except OBJ acted totally surprised he ended up in Cleveland. Maybe he wrote "LA or at least West coast" on the email he sent Gettleman, and was shocked he ended up in the mistake by the lake...
Tiki said "he thinks" OBJ wanted out.

Doesn't state he knows that. Admits, after all, that Eli was the right type of personality to have success leading the Giants, and admits he didn't understand that 14 years ago when he'd just retired.

I seriously doubt obj wanted to leave. If he played his cards right, he could have advanced his brand in NY and become King of All Media like Strahan. Now he's stuck in ass Cleveland.
tiki trying to get back into good graces of giants. he’s in this way

a very biased source. keep that in mind when reading his stuff.
Refreshing to hear Tiki

not trying to attract attention.

OBJ was getting very frustrated playing with Eli. Stated it as common knowledge.
Not sure what to think of OBJ  
Rjanyg : 5/17/2019 10:02 pm : link
The interview right after getting paid $95 Mill didn’t sound like he loved being a Giant. That becomes a problem for me. I loved his talent and he was entertaining and passionate, but he started making some business decisions on the field and he started giving the coach some shit.

He became a selfish diva.
I got no problem with Tiki  
Bluesbreaker : 5/17/2019 10:07 pm : link
He was a great Giant . Nothing would surprise me with
Odell We will certainly miss his play making ability and
I agree Tiki for whatever faults know more than this board
FWIW . Jones pick I did not expect and I hope he proves
early on he has what it takes .

Not to be argumentative, but how do we know that?
I think it's pretty clear OBJ wanted out  
ZogZerg : 5/18/2019 9:01 am : link
I think he was just caught off guard about the trade.
Nice to hear Tiki say he was wrong about Eli  
Eli Wilson : 5/18/2019 9:06 am : link
I'm not sure I ever heard him admit that before.

I was thinking the same thing.
Have to admit I hated TIKI  
TMS : 5/18/2019 12:00 pm : link
when he first left the Giants to be something more in media. But not anymore. he was a great Giant his last 5 years but thought his future was outside of football. He took his shot and took his lumps for it here and a lot of places. Think he found himself now and turned into very good NFL analyst IMO.
Tikis show is actually very good.  
Zeke's Alibi : 5/18/2019 1:24 pm : link
However, anything he says Giants related needs to be taken with a grain of salt for now. They just started letting him back in the building and he isn't going to say anything to jeopardize that. He deserves a place in the ring of honor. His comments on Saquon were definitely genuine though, he knows his franchise records are at the hospice.

After his trade I had someone close to Odell’s circle text me “Now he can’t keep bitching that he doesn’t have a a good QB to get him the ball.”

OBJ was said to be VERY critical of Eli to his clique.
Well I hope he's right  
NephilimGiants : 5/18/2019 4:45 pm : link
But if he turns out flop and josh Allen becomes pro bowler imma rip my hair out
Tiki has a few in him doesn't he?  
Amazinz : 5/18/2019 6:45 pm : link
Looks that way me.

At any rate, I'm over any bug up my ass about Tiki.

Still one of my favorite Giants ever.
I don't think Odell wanted to go, despite what Tiki said  
GeofromNJ : 5/19/2019 12:28 am : link
I think Odell wanted a different quarterback. I think he was of the same opinion as Reese regarding Eli. Eli was immobile and unable to extend a play long enough for receivers to get downfield. OBJ was always looking for the home run and Eli was unable to deliver. Odell will be happy in Cleveland only to the extent that he will be happy with Mayfield's ability to thrown home run passes. Otherwise Odell is going to hate Cleveland with a passion. He would much rather be in NYC, the west coast, or maybe FL.

How is Tiki Barber closer to the situation?
Where Are al the posts  
Festina Lente : 5/19/2019 11:43 am : link
Disparaging Tiki?. When he has something non-critical to say everyone is even-keeled. If this was an article opining that he was not a fan of DJ there would be people shitting on him, as before. Funny that.

When has Boomer ever had any real insight on anything Giants related?
Tiki is entitled to his opinion as we all are.
