I also think Barron hesitates to play at full speed bc of the sissy rules that have been put into place to protect offensive players. I would take a 15 yard penalty early in the game once a week if it Barron was setting the tone for the game with his hits.

A wr trying to catch a ball and stretching out is not defenseless, thats football. Nowadays you gotta let wrs have the middle of the field. There is no more taking it away with the thought that a safety is going to punish you..,ask Freddie Mitchell how terrifying that could be.

Did you not see him blow up Jimmy Graham today ?... and he did it clean without a penalty.

I did see it and i think he needs to get back to that more often. However even the announcers said that last week there was a similar hit that drew a flag from officials. Im all for player safety but not at the expense of the game and what it stands for.

Considering what was around him, (piss poor CBs) Baron had a good game today.

His PI was terrible. And he missed on a couple of runs - missed as in angles and tackles- but he was more involved than in the past couple of games... which might be a good sign..

Barron had his best day as a pass defender. He was solid against the run again and believe it or not leads the team in pass break ups.

+1. For a guy with his talent, to have his back turned near the end zone and then plow into the receiver was teerrible. I was really pissed, just turn around. Why are the DB's not doing this?

+2. That was at least his 3rd time doing that this year.


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Im not sold on Barron as a bust at all. I look forward to seeing him year 2.

His best day still isn't good enough but I'm sure we'll see progression next year. And maybe we need a new position coach to teach these guys how to turn their heads towards
the ball. We rarely see it.

Cooper.  He pretty clearly isn't getting his job done.

Ronde should catch just as much grief as Barron does. Where was he yesterday? I'm a big Ronde fan but dude was invisible.
