Well deserved honor. He filled up the stat sheet.

I have said this before...if he makes it to the HOF I will be making that trip to Canton for his speech. One of the best to ever wear a Buc uniform. I'm so happy that he decided to come back.

Anyone else find this guy just weird? He's still one of our best defensive players, at his age that's pretty amazing.

Congrats Ronde!

I hope he sticks around a another year or two. Our new coaching staff is putting more on his plate and he seems to love it. Being around all of the young guys I'm sure is keeping him feeling young.

Dude is a beast and I can easily see him winning another one of these before the season is over.

LOVE Ronde. Easily one of my favorite Bucs of all time. Congrats! Dude's ageless.

Definitely well deserved. Who knows, maybe the switch to safety will extend his career even further! Here's to hoping we can have that man in a Buc uniform a few more years...

Pretty crazy how he's been practicing at safety all TC and pre-season and right before the game gets the start at CB and gets defensive player of the week

I hope he's not on PED's or something, because he's playing like it Smile

I was under the impression that since this would be his 200th career start at CB that Schiano promised to start him at CB in the nickle package for the first play of the game so that he would get that accolade. No?

Yup, he got start at CB just to earn the accolade and then he shifted back to safety for the rest of the game.

Guys special, still one of the better players on our team and still looks like he has a lot left in him. He is a great leader by example, and the guys instincts just seem to be a notch ahead of everyone else's on the field. So happy for this to happen to him on his 200th start!

He's the oldest defensive player in the league... even older than Ray Lewis. And he's still makin' plays. Just... wow.

I get that this was Barber's 200 start but it wasn't close to been his 200th game, he actually played 226 career games overall.

Kiffin doesn't play guys when they're rookies. That, and Ronde came into the league as something like a 5'9" 160lb nobody. Look now.
