I'm a Giants fan, but you really can't call the guy who routinely has the most broken tackles in football a little girl.

I'm quite sure of it.

I'm also quite sure Barber will play.

I think he got the joke, it was simply lame.

Yeah...someone who actually lives up to their Madden rating (the broken Brady, notwithstanding).

/Giants fan so I still hate him
//don't hate him so much that I didn't draft him first in my PPR league when I drafted 9th.
///It was either Barber or Gore. I think I chose correctly.

Got him at nine, myself. Picked up Gore at 12. Add Drew Brees to that in the third round and LOCK IT UP! CHAMPIONSHIP!

The man is a beast. I like seeing him do so well in the pro game, especially after watching him and Maroney punish the defenses in the Big Ten.

I really hope he plays this week. I need it to happen...

I hate to say this as a life-long Cowboy's fan, they have no chance without Barber this weekend.

Without Barber and Felix Jones, the Steeler defense will pin their ears back and slap Romo around like OJ in the pen.

I dont think he was making a comment about Barber. Hes just making a play on his name. I thought it was funny subby.

Marion the Barbarian?

...is that Conan's wife?
 
2008-12-05 04:12:58 PM  
Man, he's GOTTA play on Sunday. I wanna win this game.

/Love Barber. He's amazing.

I'll fight you for him. Real hard. Possibly in jello.

Also, great headline, subby. I totally lol'd. +1

Agreed.

When Marion Barber wants to go out of bounds, he finds the nearest CB and attempts to knock him into the cheap seats on the way out.

The Barbarian is a machine. He doesn't throw stiff arms so much as haymakers intending harm. Fun to watch especially in the washington game a couple of weeks ago when it was marion 13 out of 14 carries or something like that.

I hate the Cowboys, but even I enjoy the way The Barbarian plays.

Just a bruising back. Love to watch him.

Subby, it only impresses me if you call an NFL badass a "girl" to his face.

Reference the famous 1994 ESPN episode of Jim "Chris" Everett v. Jim Rome.

Now if you can pull that off on video, and post that for us, I will be impressed.

I've got Barber in my FFL and hes been great. I loved watching him in the Washington game where literally the Cowboys gave him the ball at the end and told him to carry them to victory, and he did.

There aren't many bruising style backs in the league, watching him play is a treat. I'd wager not only has he been one of the most productive Fantasy Running Backs this year to own, but he has been the most FUN to own as well. I'd put Brandon Jacobs in that category as well. Men among boys.

I think there is no chance that Barber will not play Sunday. All of these articles are Dallas's weak attempt at mind games with the Pittsburgh defense. Pittsburgh knows he will play, and Pittsburgh will still be a monster D, so why does it matter?

i got marion barber and brandon jacobs, so there.

i hate that i've been benching forte more than i've started him, on account of the NFC East

as a steelers fan, if he's close to 100% and romo gives him room to breathe by being respectable in the air he has a legit chance of getting over 100 yards against us for the first time all year. i almost want to see it. but between harrison, woodley, hampton, farrior and pomalalalalau it's probably not going to happen.

realistically though this game's gonna look like 6-9 final score. dallas pass rush + horrid steeler o line = rofflesburger's getting beat up (i'm talking 5+ sacks here) and parker will get injured again

conversely dallas will get shut down as well, because, well, our defense is just fulltarded good.

if any of the following happens ill be happy:

T.O. gets a concussion
steelers win
barbarian marion kills a man [hopefully max starks somehow]
