Tiki doesn’t stop once he’s passed the line. He runs for 60, 70 yards. Way downfield. Beyond everybody. ” Barber has the advantage of most “small” runners. He is hard for tacklers to find. Maybe being a twin helps in some peculiar way—the results of a life spent in the investigation of hiding in plain sight. Maybe being a twin helps you not be tackled. You are always someplace else. Barber’s ascension began in the late 1990s, after the Giants lost faith in Tyrone Wheatley. In the league’s first draft, in 1936, the Giants picked George Washington’s Tuffy Leemans, and he wound up in the Hall of Fame.
The cleat rule proves costly very quickly because cleats are, well, for football fields and not for Edward Durell Stone’s polished dormitory floors. The first week of camp, promising backup ball carrier Derrick Ward, following the rules and wearing his cleats on the slippery dorm stairs, breaks his foot.

The problem he poses to a defense as he carries the ball is more like this: Three Mercedes sedans have just burst out of a dance club driveway, each speeding separate ways, and the defense, like the paparazzi, has to figure out which one is carrying Lindsay Lohan.
