Talib’s Just Not There Yet

September 27th, 2009

Perhaps the biggest missed opportunity for the Bucs against the Giants was in New York’s opening drive.

Aqib Talib had a flat out whiff on a sure interception opportunity that went through his hands and off his chest and was caught by Steve Smith for a 12-yard gain. Three plays later the Giants were in the end zone.

Last week Talib put up a good effort against Terrell Owens but was beaten in the end zone for a critical score. He was beaten again in man coverage today for a touchdown by Sinorice Moss.

Talib gets a lot of love nationally for his talent and ability in man coverage. Bucs fans want to believe he’s a budding big-time playmaker.

But Talib just isn’t there yet. And Joe just hopes he’s strong enough mentally to fight through these tougher times and get through the season.

He can come out of all these learning experiences a great player. But Joe is nervous. Talib is always one outburst away from throwing away his career. And That outburst is much more likely when your team stinks and you’re in the spotlight every week.
