Mark Barron Came To PlayDecember 16th, 2012
Joe hopes to have something a bit more detailed by tomorrow night about Mark Barron, but on paper Barron came to play big time today.
With the success of fellow rookies Doug Martin and Lavonte David, some Bucs fans are thinking Barron is a bust because he hasn’t shined like two guys who ought to be in the Pro Bowl.
To that, Joe says, balderdash!
Barron led the Bucs with 10 tackles today, eight of them solo tackles. He also tied for the Bucs’ lead in passes defended with one. And of course, Barron dropped rib-rattling hits on Saints players, which Joe dearly loves.
Has Barron made people forget John Lynch yet? No, but he still played a good game today.
