Former Buc Ronde Barber: “It Became Apparent To Me This Off-Season That I Wasn’t Willing To Get Myself Ready To Play Again”
The Drive Wednesday 5-15-13 -Ronde Barber joins The Drive with Steve Smith in studio to talk about his 16 year career in Tampa Bay, if he thinks he belongs in the NFL Hall of Fame, his thoughts on Steve Smith as a wide receiver and we discuss his Superbowl run with the Bucs in 2002.
The Buccaneers have a new coach and an incumbent quarterback, Josh Freeman, coming off a bad season. The open 2012 against reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year, QB Cam Newton and the rising Carolina Panthers at home in what could be a high scoring game. Head coach Greg Schiano and Freeman have a tough task if they are to start the year with a win.
The Panthers and Buccaneers each have top players banged up, but it’s Tampa Bay thats feeling the pain, especially at cornerback. Carolina quarterback Cam Newton had a record setting rookie campaign passing the ball, and could have a field day to start his second year against a secondary with little depth.
