2-1 Without TalibOctober 26th, 2012
If Aqib Talib has fans, then Joe is probably one of them. Joe doesn’t think Talib is a terrible dude, just one of those guys who’s going to do something incredibly foolish once or twice a year.
As Joe tells his kid, being a good person in 99 percent of your interactions makes you an a-hole a couple of times a month, which is not good enough.
Now the Bucs have the chemistry flowing after winning two of three games wihout Talib and shocking the NFL with a road beat down of the Vikings, a team that flat out embarrassed the 49ers not too long ago.
Joe’s starting to think that bringing back Talib and his Adderall problem might not be worth the potential risk of screwing with the Bucs’ chemistry, especially if the Bucs can beat the beatable Raiders in nine days.
Leonard Johnson flashed some greatness in Minnesota. Maybe the Bucs can add some cornerback depth before Tuesdays trade deadline? If the Bucs can go 3-1 without Talib, then Joe wouldn’t bother bringing him back.
