Barber Won The WarOctober 26th, 2012
Yeah, Ronde Barber got burned last night in Minnesota, but his manly open-field tackle of Adrian Peterson, and his feats-of-strength strip of Peterson more than made up for it.
Barber just out-gutted the ball from Peterson in the second quarter, like the way Joe behaves when he and another mortal go for the last beer. (Barber video here.) The score was 13-6 Bucs and the Vikings were driving at their 30 yard line. This was a huge play. Peterson hadn’t fumbled all season.
Barber led the Bucs last night with eight tackles. Michael Bennett and Eric Wright each had four.
What Barber is accomplishing this season is stunning. And it’s not just the age thing; the guy is making plays every week.
