Only CB in league history with 25 sacks and 40 interceptions. What a guy.

Raheem should have given him a shot at another sack or two. I believe he could have done it easily in the fourth quarter.

He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame just as much as Sapp and Brooks

Ronde Barber is a lock for HOF.  It is not even a question at this point, the dude can ball.

He is a fine player even at his age.  He is a cornerback playing without a pass rush nowadays, and he is making shidt happen.  Man, I love me some Ronde.  I wish half the BUcs could duplicate half of what he has done...

40 interceptions but none bigger than the one in the NFC championship game to close down the Vet. That should count as 5 I think. :)

    Yep; Ronde is a uniquely skilled CB; if he misses the HOF, it'll be a felony against the voters, IMO... And, it wouldn't surprise me to see him back next year...

Yeah they were saying he might retire, but if we make the playoffs and he sees the potential for another ring in 2011 ,I think he comes back..

I think he's got another year or 2 in him. He's not even close to done, not with the energy this team has now.

No, it's still very much in question.

It SHOULDN'T be, but it is. Hall of Fame voters are not friendly to CBs, so even being unquestionably one of the best of all time guarantees him a spot. Personally I think he should be first ballot, but the voters will probably think otherwise.

he's going to the HOF, there is no doubt about it.....every announcer says it in every game, the only question is how long will it take....

I have seen it written that Ronde is the only "player" in the 40 interception 25 sack club. It didn't specify CB. Is this accurate?

Where's all the people who have been clamoring the past few years for the Bucs to cut that old, washed-up, slow CB?

Java's skulking around on another board, unless he has just given up in total frustration. I'll poke him with a stick tomorrow just to get a rise out of him.
