Eli Manning: Giants Would Prefer Plaxico To Tiki

It goes without saying that there are certain double standards that exist in life that we can try to explain or we can just accept them. On paper, wantonly carrying a loaded weapon in public and allowing it to discharge accidentally is worse than saying something mean about another person.

But in the world of the NFL (and maybe even your world), it's the other way around for whatever reason. Pride? Code of conduct? Man-code? All the same thing?

So let's not all be too surprised when Eli Manning says that he thinks the Giants would be more likely to welcome back Plaxico Burress than Tiki Barber.

"Probably Plaxico...He has probably fonder memories, winning a Super Bowl, that catch for the touchdown in Super Bowl XLII. Tiki just ended on a bad note. It’s really a shame, he should be remembered as a great Giants running back and a terrific player — because he was — but the way he went out he burned a few bridges. . . . So I think Plaxico would probably be welcomed back a little quicker."

The lesson is, as always, don't do what Tiki Barber did.
