Barber Wants Ruud BackJuly 27th, 2011
Outside of rockstar general manager Mark Dominik’s apparent thumbs-down on Barrett Ruud yesterday before the media, everyone else in the organization seems to be on the Ruud bandwagon.
Including Raheem Morris, Joe can’t recall anyone related to the Bucs not being enthusiastic about Ruud’s return. Plenty of guys have gone public. Ronde Barber is the latest, so he told J.P. Peterson on 1010 AM yesterday.
“I would love to see Barrett back, if I had a vote, which I do not,” Barber said. “He’s the quarterback of our defense. I’d hate to see him go somewhere else and succeed, which he will.”
Barber went on to say that turning over Ruud’s position to a rookie or inexperienced player would be “tremendous pressure.”
The more Joe thinks about the apparent Ruud situation, one thing becomes more and more clear. Dominik is calling all the shots.
