Pretty much everything.
Below you can see one of the sacks Barber gave up on Sunday night - and it is almost a clinic of what NOT to do as an offensive lineman. The 0:10 mark is particularly instructive as you can see that a) Barbre has terrible forward lean with his body out over his feet and b) NO punch whatsoever with his hands and arms. Really, Ogunleye wins this by his second step, getting his arms into Barbre and then diping his shoulder and just destroying the corner. Plus, look at Barbre's leg bend, or lack thereof. Just brutal. He is simply playing way too tall without any anchor, a recipe for disaster no matter who he's facing across the way.
Now, I recognize that picking apart one play is easy to do and would usually not exactly be completely fair to Barbre. But in this instance, unfortunatley, the video above is an extremely representative sampling of almost every play Barbre was asked to pass protect in the first half. He did improve marginally in the second half, but not to any great effect.
