Not worth the trouble Kevin Van Valkenburg Baltimore Sun According to his agent, Tiki Barber supposedly is "flabbergasted" that no NFL team was interested in giving him a shot to make their team this preseason, even though he's 36 and has been out of the NFL for four years. The fact Barber didn't see this coming in further proof that, despite his intelligence, he's one of the most tone-deaf athletes the NFL has seen. No team is going to give Barber a shot, even after the season begins and injuries mount, because he's not worth the trouble.

The way Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce are rolling up yards, the Ravens' running back duo may need a nickname of their own. Reviving memories of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (the Miami Dolphins' Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick) and "Thunder & Lightning" (the New York Giants' Ron Dayne and Tiki Barber), Rice and Pierce played significant roles in the Ravens' 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in an AFC wild-card playoff game at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. Pierce led the offense in rushing with 103 yards on 13 carries, including the team's longest runs of 43 and 18 yards.

As expected, there has been chatter on the message boards and talk radio about the possibility that the Ravens will sign former Giants running back Tiki Barber now that he is coming out of retirement . You can be sure the guys over at The Castle will talk about it for a few minutes, too, because they have discussions about pretty much every available player. I doubt that conversation will last long, though, despite the expectation that the Ravens will be in the market for a running back or two this offseason.

On former Raven Michael McCrary's health problems His situation is all too common for retired players. Which is why I will never understand criticism of a guy like Tiki Barber for getting out when he still can in good health. He needs to get those knees replaced ASAP, because all that "medication" he is on is going to lead to addiction problems that will make the knees look like a minor issue.

"I don't know how he can be underrated. How do you underrate a guy who's had 1,500 yards two years in a row? With what he's meant to the team? He is certainly not underrated around here." Tom Coughlin New York Giants coach, on running back Tiki Barber (above) "He always is going to say something about the losing streak we have as far as the bowl game is concerned. Whenever he remembers, he comes and throws it at us. He's even thrown it at us when we're in the huddle sometimes." Darius Walker Notre Dame running back, on how coach Charlie Weis reminds the Irish about going 12 years without a bowl win "Annoying to you maybe, but now everyone in Little League is doing it."

TAMPA, Fla. - New York Giants running back Tiki Barber came into the world early and blossomed late. Now, at 25, he's comfortably centered, finding himself at the right place at the right time - again. Barber's first coming-out party was at the University of Virginia, where he used football and all the attention that came with it as a social tool. Now, in New York, he has enjoyed a breakthrough season on the football field and discovered a new sideline, serving in the off-season as the host of radio and television talk shows and as a TV sports anchor.

1. Stay with Ramsey Patrick Ramsey became the 16th different quarterback since 1993 to start for Washington, so coach Steve Spurrier must rein in his notorious habit of rotating quarterbacks and stick with the franchise's first- round pick from last season. Ramsey needs time to develop a presence in the pocket, and pulling him will only blunt his learning curve. 2. Mix it up As heavy as Spurrier's Fun 'N' Gun system is on passing the ball, Washington finished eighth in the NFC in rushing attempts (442)

Instead of celebrities and glamour, viewers of NBC's Golden Globes telecast last night were served three hours of cheesy interviews and vapid patter hosted by Hollywood and network TV hacks. It was the awards show that wasn't - as NBC forged ahead with a telecast even after what has been one of Hollywood's flashiest awards ceremonies was brought to its knees by a writers' strike. The bulk of NBC's evening was taken up with a disingenuous clip-job of an interview show hosted by Matt Lauer of the Today show.

The starting quarterbacks from last season's Super Bowl combined to throw a hand-wringing 14 interceptions through the first five weeks of 2006. Yesterday, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Hasselbeck took bold steps toward restoring order in their respective NFL universes. In Week 6, Roethlisberger launched his first touchdown pass since last season's AFC championship game, leading the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 45-7 rout of the Kansas City Chiefs. Hasselbeck was nearly flawless, bringing the Seattle Seahawks back from a 14-point deficit to beat the Rams, 30-28, on a last-play field goal in St. Louis and retake the NFC West lead.

Tailback Tiki Barber has become Virginia's best offensive player. Cavaliers cornerback Ronde Barber was the Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year last season, and his play hasn't fallen off.Besides sharing a birth date and an apartment, the Barber twins were two-sport stars at Cave Spring High in Roanoke, and they were half of the 400-meter relay team that took third in the ACC track championships last spring. They are also solid students in Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce.Request an interview with Tiki and, when it's finished, he hands the telephone to Ronde, who just happens to be passing through Virginia's publicity office.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- So, is anyone ready to guarantee the New York Giants won't be in the Super Bowl? They're a team many find it hard to believe in -- and for good reason. But it's no longer that safe to say the Giants won't be in Tampa's Raymond James Stadium on Jan. 28 after their frantic finish for a 28-25 win over Jacksonville yesterday at frigid Giants Stadium. That's because by scoring 21 points in the fourth quarter to win their fifth game in a row, the Giants -- already the improbable NFC East champions -- did what was until recently unimaginable: They claimed home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Caught up in the moment and a fit of hyperbole, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Terrell Owens heralded tonight's kickoff of the NFL's 2002 season this way: "This is what everybody, God and country, has been waiting for." At least the football populace, anyway. Six days before the anniversary of Sept. 11 and nearly a year after they last visited the Meadowlands, the 49ers play the New York Giants tonight in the league's first nationally televised midweek season opener. The 8:30 start on ESPN will follow a 3 1/2 -hour music festival in Times Square that will feature Bon Jovi, Enrique Iglesias and Eve, among other performers.
