Former Buc Getting Used To Broadcasting

Bucs_Ronde_Barber_2013Just two weeks after an uneven debut as a game analyst, former Bucs standout Ronde Barber rebounded with a strong performance in Saturday’s Bucs-Dolphins preseason game on Ch. 8.

He still is working on some of the nuts and bolts of broadcasting, but his commentary is becoming more concise, critical and insightful. He seemed much more comfortable than his first game, the preseason opener against the Ravens, and will get even better when Fox coaches him up a little more during the regular season.

His best moments Saturday came when talking about Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman, who had another unsteady performance. Barber showed he is not going to back away from criticizing someone he — you would believe — likes personally. That’s always a big step for players-turned-analysts.
