Vision Must ImproveSeptember 29th, 2012
Absolutely, says Bucs icon Ronde Barber.
Barber explained that he’s still in a learning curve at his new position and his reactions aren’t there yet, so he explained on the Buccaneers Radio Network this week.
“When you’re playing that hole safety, you really see sideline to sideline, or you have to be able to. You gotta be aware of the routes coming at you. And I’ve had instances this year where I felt like I could have made a better break, you know, if my vision would have been better,” Barber said.
“I’m still trying to work on it. It’s definitley an adjustment period. The good thing is I know my responsibility. And I still have a pretty good idea of what teams are trying to do to us, so that’s helping me, helping me with this learning curve.
Joe sees this as great news. As Barber’s vision improves, not only will he make more plays, but he’ll be able to impart more of what he sees from opposing offenses to his young teammates.
