Sabby Talks About His Game-Changer

October 10th, 2010

Bucs reserve safety Sabby spoke on the Bucs radio network following the game to talk about his game-changing interception return that set up the Bucs winning field goal in the closing seconds.

“Rah had called a great defense to get pressure on the quarterback. Talib had great coverage and T.O.[Cincinnati receiver Terrell Owens] tried to tip it up and I tried to make a play.

“The funny thing was, we were aware [of the clock and field position] so I tried to get as many yards as I could and get to the sidelines and help win the game.

“Hey, 3-1 is huge for us. We try to break the season down in quarters. If we can go 3-1 each quarter, we will have a helluva team.”

    You’re still a goat, but today you’re our goat.

    sabby was out of position and in the right place at the right time. however it was a good return.

  3. Colby Says:

    Why was Sabby trying to get to the sideline? He knows the clock stops on a turnoever, right?

  4. BigMacAttack Says:

    Sab got burned badly on the previous Cinci TD, but redeemed himself just like Spermblock.

    3 and 1 the Saints can’t say that we beat them sissies last year and will again this year.

    Sabby did not have his best game for Tampa, except for that interception. Like Passthebucs says, he was out of position a lot. But hey, he made a play when it counted, and Tampa won! I just got back from Publix, and everyone was excited about two of our Tampa teams. It was really cool.

    why didnt sabby mention how many yards benson drug him for throughout the game. it had to be at least 15 or 20. he did a nice job catching a tipped pass, i’ll give him that, but his play on the field still makes me sick the other 98 percent of the time.

    I don’t get it….Sabby gets roasted when he doesnt make plays, Sabby gets roasted when he makes plays….

    Last I checked Cedric was dragging everybody around, but your taking shots at Sabby….

  9. TheAngryDJ Says:

    How about the staring contest he got in with Benson at the line of scrimmage? How about what I remember as about 3 missed tackles in one game alone. Why are we even playing him? He was part of a game changer, but he consistently hurts this team when he’s on the field.

  10. BigMacAttack Says:

    Apple, that’s funny because my old lady forced me to go to Publix after the game as well. There were at least 10 Buc Fans (m & f) there wearing jerseys and Buc shirts, high fives, fists and hand shakes, and I’m in Sarasota. It was great and I needed beer anyway.

    There is still a pretty good amount of Season Ticket holders here because I see them on Sunday mornings driving up. I’ll give up my Bucs’ Tickets when they pry my cold dead hands off of them. Sound familiar?

    yes steve, i’m taking shots at sabby. if sean jones is out for any anount of time we are in trouble. sabby hasnt gotten one bit better from last year to this. he got a lucky bounce on one play and now he wants to talk like he’s an all pro?

  12. Dave Says:

    Sabby was schooled most the day and was dragged on tackles.
    He and RUUD need to be gone next year.

    I was keying in on Ruud…. sorry Ruud lovers, but he is a joke at MLB. At the snap, his first move is almost always a back peddle. Then most the time he flows with the play only to get lost on a cutback. He then emerges and makes a tackle 5-6 yards too late.

    Hopefully we see more and more of Blount and Huggins as they learn how to pick up the blitz.

    I hear ya BigMacAttack ! Went to Publix for more Beer myself (forced by the old lady too)
    Treated myself to a Boars Head Sub, and an 18 pack of Bud. Lines were long at the Valrico Publix, with Bucs and Rays Jerseys everywhere.
    It was exciting to see fellow Tampa fans, almost like the Playoff Years. We will be at Tampa Stadium for the Saints game that I hope will sell out. The Saints can be had, we had them before at their home.

    I don’t know what you experts are talking about Sabby had a solid game. Sean Jones plays timid and is never in position to make a play as Sabby did. And the run defense sucks because of the movement down on the line. If Raheem would keep our young D lineman in their right positions the whole game then maybe they would learn and thrive more at their positions. Keep GMC at the 3 technique damn it! Then we would get pressue and our linebackers could shoot the gaps. Sabby and Rhonde were the only players tackling well.

  15. tcaviar Says:

    And for all those who say Sabby was out of position I’m curious to know if you even know what coverage we were in and where he was supposed to be. Obviusly he was in the right position to make the play.

  16. sensiblebuc Says:

    @ tcaviar

    Look no further than the Gresham TD. He looked terrible on that play and terrible overall.

  17. tampa2ali Says:

    sabby lead the team in tackles and he won the game for us lets stop the hate..

  18. tcaviar Says:

    The Bengals had run the ball down our throat on that drive. Its was smart for Sabby to step in and try to stop the run. The Bengals made a good offensive play call and Sabby went for the run and still recovered to try and make a play on the ball.

  19. Steve From Oregon Says:

    Exactly, for everybody saying how Sabby was out of position, how do you know??? If you could tell me what coverage they were in, you might have a point, but I watched the game and listened to the broadcasters…they werent trashing Sabby, even on the TO touchdown, that was man coverage and Talib got burned.

  20. Steve From Oregon Says:

    Gotbbucs……I don’t mind a healthy debate, but if you don’t have any facts to support you, it just comes across as ignorant…you said Sabby now talks/thinks he’s a Pro Bowl player….I hope you had a few victory drinks before you wrote that, otherwise, you have issues understanding the english language.
