Cheerleader Turned Cornerback Ready To Play

September 15th, 2010

It was an unusual weekend for Bucs stud cornerback Aqib Talib. Normally playing lockdown defensive back, Talib instead channeled his inner Rachel Watson and cheered on his Bucs teammates, so reports Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.

Talib had been suspended for a game as a result of his clubbing a cabbie — allegedly — last summer as it sped down I-275. Because he was not in uniform didn’t mean he was disengaged, especially watching E.J. Biggers fill his shoes so well.

Talib said he watched the Bucs’ 17-14 win over Cleveland Sunday on television and was impressed with the play of the defense, particularly his replacement in the lineup, second-year pro E.J. Biggers, who had a game-clinching interception.

I just was jumping off the couch, really excited to see him come out and have a great game,” Talib said of Biggers.

That’s way cool for Joe to read but Joe has one rhetorical question: In what town was said couch located that Talib could watch the game?

At any rate, Talib confessed sorrow for putting himself in a position to be suspended and vowed not to let himself be suspended again.

All in all, good stuff to read there.

    well… i guess it would depend on the time of the interview since it aired later on.

    He watches it on TV the same way I did. Hook up the laptop HDMI to my LCD and surround sound. There you go. No need to travel 75 miles away.

    Or he has one of those loop systems that snags the satalite feed…Nah, that would be illegal! He has the money, maybe he flew somewhere to watch it.

    Aqib Talib was at the Bucs game sitting in a first story corner box. I saw him there with his family. And he was not watching the game on a couch or on a TV. He was standing up and watching it from the edge of his box. Maybe he was refering to the TV that was on the side wall of his box?

    I know of a few sites where you can watch any blacked out game.

    JohnT…Yep, I have watched a couple games from a box, and they do have coaches as well.
