Countering “Intelligence” Of Talib & BlountSeptember 18th, 2013
Former Buccaneers Aqib Talib and LeGarrette Blount may not be the smartest guys to roam the earth, but they do have plenty of intelligence when it comes to the New Schiano Order, a regime that is no fan of leaked secrets.
Talib and Blount are now thriving under Bill Belicheat in New England, where the Bucs head Sunday.
Greg Schiano was clear, speaking on WDAE-AM 620 Monday, that he is on high alert to negate the knowledge Talib and Blount have no doubt passed on to their coaches and teammates.
“The thing that comes into play is that [Talib and Blount] do know and have an intimate knowledge of a lot of the things that we do,” Schiano said. “So we have to make sure that if there’s anything we feel that we can be compromised, you know, from an intelligence standpoint we have to make sure to change it up. That’s part of the game as well, knowing what they know and trying to adjust it.”
This sharing of knowledge is especially important this week, Joe believes, especially considering Talib and Blount represent both sides of the ball. And, if the Bucs, as Schiano says, “change it up,” then that could lead to more communication issues for a team that’s struggled with that. Lastly, Joe suspects Blount and Talib are extremely motivated to focus on every detail that could lead to a victory against Schiano.
