When you've got ex-kickers releasing memoirs, you know there's a problem

Giants all-time leading rusher Tiki Barber's much publicized autobiography Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond was released September 18. He ripped Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning, drummed up some publicity in various media outlets, yada yada yada; it's been a mild success. Ernie Accorsi retired as GM of the Giants in January and his tell-all The GM: The Inside Story of a Dream Job and the Nightmares that Go with It was also published the 18th. Judging by the excerpt in Peter King's latest column, it sounds like an interesting read. Michael Strahan made it three books in three weeks by members of the 2006 Giants organization with Inside the Helmet: Life as a Sunday Afternoon Warrior, co-authored by Fox NFL reporter Jay Glazer. It dropped yesterday as Strahan was on the Dan Patrick Show and PTI plugging away. Hopefully he'll sell enough copies to pay for a hit on his ex-wife. Even former Giants kicker Owen Pochman is self-publishing a memoir.

Also in the pipeline: Cocaine: It's a Hell of a Drug by Lawrence Taylor, My Dad is Archie Manning not Jim Nabors, by Eli Manning, and Hitler is my Homeboy, by Tom Coughlin.
