New, comments

If you aren't glued to college football, or to the New York Yankees doubleheader with the Boston Red Sox, here is a little weekend reading material for you.

There is no love lost between former New York Giants Antonio Pierce and Tiki Barber.

"Personally, I'm not a fan. No. I'm not a fan," Pierce said of Barber, whom he played with in 2005 and 2006. "I respect the way he plays the game, I respect how he was as a football player. [But] I can't tell you two things about TIki Barber. I don't know him. [I] didn't really get the chance to sit down and have talks with him. [I] wasn't really interested in doing that."

"He’s a very talented kid,'' Weatherford said of Dodge, whom he spoke to when the Jets and Giants played against each other in the preseason. "As far as physical ability, he’s really strong. He’s a good athlete. But punting in the NFL is different than college. They expect you to get the ball out faster, they want you to place the ball on the sidelines and things like that – it’s an adjustment. I think the kid can get the job done, but at the same time, it’s an adjustment period.''
