Um, I don't know what you've been seeing from Barber, but to say that is just a little bit of a stretch. Barber is good and I was very happy they drafted him. But to say that in the two good games Barber has had he's shown more than Julius is crazy....and that's insulting to crazy people. Anthony Thomas was signed for depth. Remember that word? Depth wins games. Dallas RB situation was horrible last year and the lack of depth was horrible. Parcells never wanted to be caught in that situation again. To provide depth for the team Barber and Thomas were brought in . Thomas as an NFL RB is slightly above Eddie George at this point in their careers. Need proof, he was unseated by an undrafted rookie.
Jones is not healthy now and I'm glad Barber is in the fold but let's keep this in perspective. My main concern is Barbers ability to hold onto the football. He's great at picking up the blitz.
