As far as I'm concerned, he is always welcome. As long as everyone understands that its about having the best 11 on the field. He's earned the right to a roster spot over a scrub Special Teamer

So what if Ronde doesn't start? His knowledge is what matters for guys like banks.


#24 could fill that role just fine, and contribute on the field as well.

\\\\\\\"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.\\\\\\\"

I personally would much rather Banks ( who after watching his interview, I like a whole heck of alot) learn from Barber and Revis than get corrupted by a guy like Wright.  Yes Wright has more speed but knowledge of the game and maturity he lacks.  Barber didn't really lose any speed, he was just never that fast to begin with.  What he lacks in foot speed he makes up for in his awareness.

That is easy to say now, but when Ronde gets scorched for a 90 yard TD, and the Bucs lose 21-20, it will be a different story.

I agree.  It's time for Barber to go.

I still have that visual of Cruz running by him like his feet were in cement.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Agree, he is getting to that edge of the cliff,  where he starts embarrassing himself.  I don't want to remember him for that, just the good times.

That's bad man.  Even slow azz Barron gave it a better shot than #20.

He shouldn't have even been covering Cruz. Plus Cruz does that to marquee corners all over the place. Agreed he's lost a step but he can still be beneficial to this team. You guys seriously trust gaitor, lewis, and Johnson over barber in the slot. You guys are crazy.
