TBT: Cornerback Ronde Barber NFL ironman

Thought I would go back a few years and take a look at former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber. He was a third round pick, 66th overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft. While waiting to be drafted, he heard all the different rumors, is he big enough, is he fast enough, is he tough enough? The career that he had answered all of  those questions. Barber had one of those careers...

In Enemy Waters: Bucs vs. Titans

The Bucs and Titans came so close to having a rather rich history. It happened twice.  In 1999, the Buccaneers came within an overturned catch and a red zone drive of the Super Bowl.  Had the Bert Emanuel Play turned out differently, and had the Buccaneers completed the drive, the Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans would have met in Super Bowl XXXIV.   That, of course, was the...

E.J. Manuel labeled 'Scared' by former NFL cornerback Ronde Barber

The Buffalo Bills have a talented roster but the one glaring weakness they have is at the quarterback position.
