We know how incredible those two played throughout their careers.. sadly our players don’t get the respect they are due bc we are the Bucs. When you have a history like ours, and being in a smaller market, that also hasn’t had (comparatively) many nationally televised games. The other thing that is used against Lynch and Barber (especially) is playing in the Tampa 2. They get labeled “system” guys, which obviously is a total joke. Unfortunately, if both guys had played for the Cowboys, Steelers, Giants, etc. they would get a lot more love. Ronde deserves to be in the HOF 100%, not only does his stats back it up but also his longevity as well as being versatile enough to play CB and S at a high level. Lynch was a great player and I do believe he was a HOF type player, however on a national level he seems to be more borderline. Don’t know why but it seems like the media doesn’t want to put in too many guys from our prime Tampa 2 group… which is strange bc just being a part of “the Steel Curtain” or “Purple People Eaters” gave their players a leg up.
