Ronde Barber Amazed By Overtime WIn

November 18th, 2012

Should-be Hall of Famer Ronde Barber, the graybeard of the Bucs, seemed as happy as a high school kid on prom night after the Bucs’ thrilling overtime win as he spoke on the Bucs radio network moments after the game.

“This one is at the top of the list,” Barber said of the win, a victory snatched from the jaws of defeat. “We didn’t play well, we had three turnovers and we didn’t match up on defense well, and we win. We put ourselves in a tough situation at the end but we have proved to be a resilient team all year and proved that at the end.”

On the final defensive stand that set up the game-tying drive: “We knew going out there it was our one opportunity to do something right today. Without that (last stop), this game is obviously different.”
On Vincent Jackson: “I tell you what, Vincent Jackson is worth every penny we paid him. And I will give it to [quarterback Josh Freeman]. He will admit he was not at his best but at the end, I will tell you I wouldn’t want anyone else throwing the ball for us.

“We will take the ‘W.’ It was a hard-fought win. Hope we can build on it.

“The confidence has been there. We just have to continue to do our job. Coach Schiano puts a lot of emphasis on doing things right and that paid off at the end.”

    I really like how, even though they are winning, they consistantly say they need to work on getting better.

    Truthfully, as this offense is coming together, the team reminds me more of the Packers than the Giants to be honest.

    btw…Schiano had them going over overtime strategy this week for the first time. Talk about preparation!

    Ronde isn’t alone with his amazement. GO BUCS!

    Great game for Barber.. he is a true class act on and off the field. This win is a huge win for the Bucs and I think this could give them the confidence they need to prevail in any situation. They now know that they are never out of a game.. no matter what the score going into the 4th quarter (within reason of course)

    If you weren’t, you’re not a Bucs fan, that’s for sure.
