How many players [besides specialists] are even left in the NFL who were active in the 90s? I can only count 6: Tony Gonzalez, Peyton Manning, Matt Hasselbeck, Antoine Winfield, Champ Bailey and London Fletcher.


Charles Woodson should be on a roster a few weeks before TC starts.


You think? He is pretty washed up.

Off-topic but... Ronde retires and this is how his brother reacts:

Quote:
Tiki Barber asks his twin brother Ronde: "Why don't people like me?"


Quote:
“Why do so many people like Ronde and dislike me,” Tiki asked a second time.

They may be twins but Ronde has been class throughout his career while Tiki continues to be a tool.

Great player on and off the field. Ronde had an amazing career and that play against the Eagles still lives in infamy around these parts. May he find his way into Canton some day and enjoy the rest of his life outside of football.

He seemed gracious before he retired, but that was probably because he was playing and not talking. He's a total tool. I appreciate what you did on he field, but holy cow, I don't think there is a more unlikable player off the field.

Let me give you my personal opinion, on what I think has happened.
It all started with the release of the coke machine in Brandon Jacobs.

Example of Ronde Barber's class. When ST coach Rich Bissacia's SB ring was stolen, Barber and wife Claudia paid Tiffany's for a new one.

Barber was always a good player, all the best to him in retirement.

He'll make a nice addition to Kiffin's defensive coaching staff next season in Dallas.

Barber was pure class. Wish him the best.

Next stop Canton.

He doesn't have any intentions of coaching right now. But if he ever does decide to coach, he won't be leaving Tampa.
