Buccaneers Ronde Barber Misses HOF Induction Again


Another year of the NFL Honors and another snub for Buccaneers great Ronde Barber. Thursday night seemed like it would be the night. When former Buccaneer great Derrick Brooks stepped to the podium you thought the stage was set. It wasn’t, Ronde Barber again wasn’t selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Barber has a strong case for the Hall. He’s been referred to as revolutionizing the position.

The snub is even more brutal considering Leroy Butler was inducted, why dies that matter? Let’s look at the stat comparisons.

LeRoy Butler:
Pro Bowls: 4

Ronde Barber:
Sacks: 28
FF: 15
Pro Bowls: 5
