Interesting little tidbit in the NY Post about Antwan Barnes and one of the small things he does each week to prepare for his upcoming opponent.
OLB Antwan Barnes has pictures of Titans tackles Michael Roos and David Stewart hanging in his locker. He said he also has the pictures hanging in his home. He does it every week with the opposing tackles he’ll face.
[sny-editorial userid=”362815″]Well, whatever Barnes is doing it is working. So far, Barnes is the 20th overall 3-4 OLB according to Pro Football Focus and the 11th best 3-4 OLB as a pass-rusher.[/sny-editorial]
