Bob Glauber, of Newsday, reports New York Giants RB Tiki Barber feels the team is good enough to win the Super Bowl. "I think we have to talk about the Super Bowl," Barber told Newsday Monday, July 24, three days before reporting for training camp. "One of our downfalls last season is that we set our goals too low. We had the goals of restoring Giant pride and becoming a playoff team, which we did to the utmost. But it's almost as if once we achieved them, we didn't have the mentality of getting to the next level, which is the Super Bowl." Barber said head coach Tom Coughlin pretty much told the team the same thing, "Coach (Tom) Coughlin's last message to us when we left our minicamp (in June) was that we needed to set our sights on the Super Bowl," said Barber, who had a career-high 1,860 rushing yards last season. "I think we've got the components at every position, which is exciting. I don't think I've ever been here when we've had this kind of talent at every position."
