E.J. Biggers Talks To Joe

October 30th, 2010

Shortly after the Bucs’ thrilling win against the Rams, Joe had a chance to hit up cornerback E.J. Biggers with some questions. Here’s what the Bucs’ second-year man had to say on the record.

JoeBucsFan.com: How do you feel your game has progressed? You’re a second-year guy, but you’re almost like a rookie after being hurt last year? How do you think you’re playing?

E.J. Biggers: I’m doing some good things, but I still have a ways to go to get up to the level of Ronde Barber. You know, that’s just a guy I look up to every day. He and Aqib Talib. I look up to those guys, for me two of the best corners in the NFL right now. Great guys to learn from. …Ronde’s just a premier guy, just a standup guy. I watch the things he does every day and try to grow from them.

Joe: Since the start of the season, how specifically have you improved?

Biggers: Just finishing plays. Definitely finishing plays all the time. Not just sometimes. All the time.

JoeBucsFan.com:  The Bucs have shutout three teams in the second half this season. What’s different in the second half?

Biggers: I don’t know, but you gotta play the full game all the time. Play 60 minutes. That’s what Coach Rah preaches before every game. We just finish it all the way through.

Joe: Did you see the Rams getting worn down?

Biggers: I can’t say. I can’t say that. We just stood up. We came into the locker room and Coach Rah told us we weren’t playing pretty and playing up to our expectations and we needed to live up to the things we do every day: core beliefs.

Joe: You guys are now 4-2. How does the team feel now? Are guys thinking playoffs at all and what this season could become?

Biggers: Looking at the next game. That’s what we’re looking at.

    Biggers has looked better than Talib. I’m not saying he is, but so far this year he has looked better. With Barber playing Nickel/SS/LB or whatever, Biggers has been starting #2 CB the vast majority of the time, and he is shutting his guy down. Very promising.

    I’m a Madden player, and it absolutely drives me nuts every week when they do roster updates, and Biggers gets ignored. They have him as a 66!!! even lower than Mack who has barely even seen the field.

    It’s still to early to tell, but Biggers has really looked like he could be our next Brian Kelly. Now we just need TAlib to man up and be our next Barber!
