Ronde Barber has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week
Ronde Barber a ninth year veteran and a 3rd round pick in the 1997 draft for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has accomplished something that no other corner back in the NFL has ever done. Barber recorded 20 sacks and 20 interceptions over the course of a career, and he is not finished yet. He was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his game against the Carolina Panther were he recorded eight tackles, one sack and an interception.
Barber should have won the NFC Defensive Player of the Week last week for his 3 interceptions, but it was stolen away from him. Barber a two time Pro Bowler, has sparked an interesting topic on the Tampa Bay Buccaneer Radio Network. Should Ronde make it into the Hall of Fame? Any true fan would say yes, but it seems that he may not have done enough yet in his career even to be considered. If you ask me, I think he should be in the Hall of Fame, along with Derrick Brooks and I say even Mike Alstott, who has no chance of ever getting his name brought up by the sports writers.
What do you think about Ronde’s chances as a Future Hall of Famer?
