Does Ronde Belong in the Hall of Fame?

TAMPA – For Buccaneers fans who had the privilege of watching No. 20 report to work for the past 16 seasons, his new title appears to be “Hall of Famer Ronde Barber.”

Not so fast.

Barber, who switched from cornerback to safety for his final NFL season, certainly has powerful credentials as a candidate for the Canton, Ohio, shrine of excellence.

(In my opinion, I think he does. Have you seen his stats? How is he NOT a Hall of Fame player?) This is a question that’s been going around ever since his big announcement. I think it’s obvious.
