Good list. Honorable mentions Mark Carrier, Warrick Dunn, Simeon Rice, Brad Johnson, Doug Williams

I think Ronde is the most likable Buccaneer of all time

Lynch or Alstott probably have that last mantle.

Batman and Mark Carrier on the HM list. Wilder is on the above list.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

I judge a man by their skill and character, Sapp completely sinks in the latter.

Fortunately, the HOF doesn't judge by that same criteria.

If they did, Ronde would be a lock to get in.  And if this list was about character, Ronde would be #1.   But neither this list or the HOF judge character.  We all know, some of the best athletes of all time, were not the nicest people.

Example of Ronde Barber's class. When ST coach Rich Bissacia's SB ring was stolen, Barber and wife Claudia paid Tiffany's for a new one.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Gruber should be 5 or 6.  As good a safety Lynch was Gruber was as good a LT if not better and played his entire 12 year career here.

lynch, Gruber, brooks , Selmon have/had just as much character as Barber IMO.  Plenty of great people off the field on that list.  Never heard a bad word about Alstott either.

I don't disagree with that.
