Brees weary of Ronde Barber's ball hogging

Saints QB Drew Brees is preparing to face one of his oldest NFC South nemeses. Wait, who are we kidding - safety Ronde Barber is the oldest.

Barber turned 37 before the season, and he's no placekicker. He is still a playmaker.

Just last week, Barber caught his second interception of the season, the 45th of his 16-year career. On the play, a ball bounced off the leg of Kansas City receiver Dexter McCluster, hit a Tampa Bay defender never hit the ground. That's where Barber grabbed it and scored on a 78-yard touchdown.

It's no wonder Brees plans to keep his eyes out for Barber, the same as he did when playing Green Bay's Charles Woodson, another former cornerback who moved to safety.

A ball bouncing off of a leg is not an interception LOL... That's luck.

One would assume the "eye of the hawk" would play into this wouldn't they?

I am not well versed in the vision of the hogg.

Re: Brees weary of Ronde Barber's ball hogging

5 more and he joins the Sharper club at 50+. 60 is where the air gets really thin with not as many guys, but you're still a long way from the summit. It's kind of an arbitrary number, but 50 is where I start to go "Wow, that is a lot of interceptions" and the list really starts to thin out. Let's hope this week is fruitless for him in his quest.

Re: Brees weary of Ronde Barber's ball hogging

Is Brees 'weary' or 'wary'? Is he tired of Barber or careful?
