Talib Says Repetitions Are Curing Defense

October 8th, 2009

Whether the Bucs have enough talent to win four or five games this year is debatable.

But what’s not open for debate is the challenge the team is having adjusting to new schemes on both sides of the ball. For helmet-wielding Aqib Talib, that adjustment period is everything — and it’s ongoing.

Talib was a guest on Total Access last night, a Buccaneers Radio Network show that airs weekdays at 6 p.m. on 620 WDAE-AM.

He was asked by former Bucs tight end Dave Moore whether the Bucs improvement on defense, specifically making plays in the backfield against Washington, was a result of “something [coaches] were teaching as far as getting through your gap rather than just protecting, or a higher energy.” 

To Joe’s surprise, Talib didn’t pick either of Moore’s assumptions.

“Me personally, it’s just repetitions,” Talib said. “Everything is totally different from last year.”

Joe is searching desperately for positives as much as the next fan. Perhaps Talib is right and the Bucs just need more time to be successful on defense.

    How many more reps will it take before Acab learns to watch out for the double-move?
