(AUDIO) The Commish: Are the Bucs Better Without Ronde Barber?

By: Justin Pawlowski

Of course, the first things Bucs fans are going to say is that I shouldn’t be so negative towards a player like Ronde Barber and that Ronde should be able to stay as long as he wants.  Well, the same people will be bitching when the pass defense is getting beat because Ronde is playing the position the Bucs drafted Mark Barron to play.

This is a very sensitive subject that might require a very tough decision as Gary Shelton pointed out a few columns ago.

With that said, if the Bucs are truly focussed on getting better and sustaining success, tough decisions need to be made sometimes.  Ronde Barber has shown that he can still play, but he is playing in the position that Mark Barron was drafted to play.  Barron is playing a position that he is not suited to play. The math just doesn’t add up.
