Aqib Talib = Mike Tyson

October 2nd, 2009

Helmet-wielding Aqib Talib’s propensity for getting in trouble and landing in fights of all kinds is not what makes him like Mike Tyson. And, to the best of Joe’s knowledge, Talib has never enjoyed the fruits of the lovely Robin Givens.

However, Talib does resemble Tyson in one distinct way: a high-pitched voice.

Very high.

Talib gets a huge share of giggles around the Bucs locker room when he opens his mouth.

Rarely do fans get to hear him. Understandably, he’s not one to have a radio show or do many interviews with that voice. But in the Oct. 1 Buccaneers Insider video at, fans can hear Talib talk.

It’s worth the click-through

 As in all the Bucs videos, there are fabulous looks from NFL Films of the previous week’s game.

One gets a great look at Geno Hayes dropping his interception opportunity against the Giants, along with Talib doing the same. Both were deep in Bucs territory as New York drove for a score. Plus you get good perspective on Tim Crowder running down Ahmad Bradshaw from behind.

    seriously? I respect but are you really going to take up space on your website making fun of Talib’s voice? I bet yours is a higher pitch than his when you here that your Mom is refusing to pay your web hosting bill. His voice is no different from a lot. I think it was just an excuse to show Iron Mike’s face ink and link to that Robin Givens photo. And that’s cool I guess.
