Talib Likes The Falcons’ Pick

April 28th, 2011

Whoa, the hated Falcons just pulled off a stunner, trading four picks including two No. 1 picks to Cleveland for the 2011 No. 6 overall pick. Then the Falcons grabbed stud wide receiver Julio Jones.

Hmmmmm, Roddy White and Julio Jones will face the Bucs twice a year. It sure would be nice for the Bucs to have a talent like Aqib Talib to cover one of those guys.

Mark Dominik did say the Bucs can never have enough cornerbacks, but Joe suspects Talib is smiling somehere about now as his odds of remaining a Buccaneer might have improved.

  2. Gavster Says:

    Uhm im not scared of jones at all so raw. he will need a yr or two.

  3. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    How STUPID of Atlanta, Hooray For Tampa. Jones is an injury waiting to happen. One can only hope and PRAY Nick Fairly is still there when we pick!

  4. Gavster Says:

    This is sooo great for tampa they got rid of sooo many pics

  6. Patrick Says:

    Yeah Joe. Don’t forget when Calvin Johnson SHREDDED our defense last year WITHOUT Talib.

    Oh, and the Redskins also poured on 416 yards on us WITHOUT Talib. We won that game but just because a botched extra point.

    Don’t let the 4-1 record fool you. Maybe we were able to win without Talib, including the lucky win over WSH, but Biggers couldn’t get turnovers like Talib did consistently all year. He was the playmaker.

  7. Funky Munkey Says:

    I think this shows more what I was saying. We need a CB in the 1st if we can’t get Robert Quinn. Maybe Prince will fall, if not Jimmy Smith has to be our pick!

    See what happens with Talib, and draft either Prince or Smith and that will help ease this. Julio Jones is nasty and ready to play from day one! Him and Roddy White…ouch. With Matt Ryan throwing to them, we have to get MUCH better at CB to have a chance!!!

  8. Funky Munkey Says:

    Quinn just got past Houston…god let him drop!!!!!!

  9. jason Says:

    Need to pressure Matt Ryan. We need DE in the first with #20. Trade back in first and get Jimmy Smith. Cmon Bucs make a power move! Im soooo pumped Im ready for the season to start RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Deputy Buc Says:

    how awesome would it be if prince falls to 20?!

    AND we keep talib

  11. llama palooza Says:

    C’ mon robert quinn!!!

  12. Funky Munkey Says:

    trade with Det. who wants to trade and get Quinn if vikings don’t draft him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Theodore Says:

    WhyTF would anyone pay that ransom for a WR? Especially when you have a #1 WR already?

    Rich McKay always has and always will be a bad GM. Only Bruce Allen was worse for the Bucs.

  14. Patrick Says:

    Did I just hear something about Robert Quinn and a brain tumor?! Can someone please inform me?

  15. Funky Munkey Says:

    Christian Ponder at #12 WTF!!!! didn’t see that one coming!!

  16. Funky Munkey Says:

    Quinn has tumor but they said it is not serious and won’t be an issue.

  17. llama palooza Says:

    FSU!!! good for christian ponder, as well as the bucs because the hopes of robert quinn are still alive…

  18. Fear The Glo Says:

    2011 1st, 2nd and 4th and 2012 1st and 4th round picks for a WR who is probably not even the best receiver in this draft.

    I would be furious if I was an Atlanta fan.

  19. Funky Munkey Says:

    Quinn could make it to 20 if NE doesn’t get him!!! god lets hope!!!!!!!!!

  20. llama palooza Says:

    I agree funky munkey, the patriots can suck it! Quinn must be ours.

  21. Patrick Says:

    Hey if the Bucs are gonna be stupid and dump Talib, Amukamara might still be up for grabs.

  22. Funky Munkey Says:

    Umm…Jones was rated just as high as AJ Green. He blocks like a beast and will be deadly with most teams #1 CB covering Roddy White. Matt Ryan just got a Christmas present REALLY early!!

  23. Funky Munkey Says:

    Who would you take between Quinn or Prince if they were both somehow there??? I would go Quinn all day!

  24. josh Says:


  25. Deputy Buc Says:

    Prince will drop to 20… no one left will want him. I think Quinn could even possibly drop below 20 along with bowers.

  26. llama palooza Says:

    Quinn, definetly

  27. Funky Munkey Says:


  28. swashbuckler Says:

    Akeem Ayers…

  29. Funky Munkey Says:

    STL needs a DT way worse than DE and they took him….OMFG this blows!!!

  30. llama palooza Says:

    S.O.B. the rams are on my HATE list

  31. Deputy Buc Says:

    nm… lol but st.louis?!

  32. Funky Munkey Says:

    Come on either Prince or Jimmy Smith!!!

  33. llama palooza Says:

    Bowers is next for my fav personally he is a beast and we need him

  34. Funky Munkey Says:

    But Bowers is only gonna play for 3-5 years tops! if Prince or Smith are gone then the value is there to get him but we need CB more than a questionable knee! IMO

  35. llama palooza Says:

    don’t be surprised if we get a TE considering winslows knee is hanging from a thread, a TE may be good for freeman to work with, but i still want bowers

  36. Funky Munkey Says:

    no TE is good enough to go at pick 20 in this draft. CB,DE,OT has to be one of those. I think a run on DE’s is about to start so its CB or OT IMO

  37. llama palooza Says:

    Agreed, but we still have some young corners that may be good enough, we need a linebacker or at least a run stopper

  38. Funky Munkey Says:

    DJ Williams in the 3rd round would be awesome if that could happen!!

  39. llama palooza Says:

    mark ingram looks like he is about to murder someone…

  40. Funky Munkey Says:

    Hahaha lmao…yea he is thats funny!!!

  41. Funky Munkey Says:

    just lost kerrigan and i think NE gets Cameron Jordan and thats it for DE worth drafting #20 IMO

  42. llama palooza Says:

    once again i agree, now its down to bowers or god knows who…

  43. gitarlvr Says:

    UMMMMM… Im gonna comment on Talib I guess.

    JOE!!!- Why no live draft discussion??? Next year man!!! Do it!!!

    Now I REALLY hope Talib gets charges dropped and Goodell lets him defend his sister unpunished.(Whether thats what really happened or not this is business folks!!!) But seriously the trade for Julio jones doesnt change the bucs board. I dont care how many weapons matt ryan has you still need to put pressure on him or he will eventually complete a pass to my grandmother. Defensive end is still the goal and this draft is playing out perfectly for the Bucs to get a coveted defensive end.

  44. llama palooza Says:

    a DE or anyother pass rusher, also, i think your grandma has better hands than julio jones

  45. Funky Munkey Says:

    wow NE went OT…

  46. llama palooza Says:

    SURPRISE!!!!! pats

  47. Joe Says:

    JOE!!!- Why no live draft discussion??? Next year man!!! Do it!!!

    The Joe that normally runs these actually had to work tonight. Gotta pay the rent.

  48. Theodore Says:

    @gitarlvr – “But seriously the trade for Julio jones doesnt change the bucs board. ”

    I don’t think anytime team would do that. Changing your draft board based on a just-drafted player that hasn’t played a down yet just doesn’t seem wise to me.

  49. Joe Says:


    Or draft Prince and sign Asomo?

  50. Funky Munkey Says:

    I think Cam Jordan is the only one worth drafting now and he fits a 3-4 better…so CB would be the way to go I think.

  51. Joe Says:

    Funky Munkey:

    Yeah, Jimbo Fisher has to be laughing his ass off.

    “When EJ Manuel gets drafted in the first round that will be three first round quarterbacks I developed!”

  52. llama palooza Says:

    can’t go wrong with guys that have to duck to get through doors

  53. Funky Munkey Says:

    It is obvious we need a CB and DE, whoever they have higher on their draft board is who we need to take, but if Prince falls we have to take him I think! Any thoughts JOE??

  54. Funky Munkey Says:

    @joe…..HAHAHAHAHA LMFAO I couldn’t have said it better myself!!! haha

  55. gitarlvr Says:

    Its looking like daquan Bowers folks!! If his knee lasts we will have the have the next dominant truly dominant defensive end!!! Boom or bust all the way baby!!!

  56. Theodore Says:

    Jordan is ours!

  57. Funky Munkey Says:

    Prince is 1 pick away!!!! Come on NYG draft Ingram PLEASE!!!!!!!

  58. llama palooza Says:

    I believe in mark dominic, he does his research and doesnt just get lucky so now we need to hope he makes the right chjoice for our team.

  59. Funky Munkey Says:

    Are you kidding me???? one pick away!!! haha thats funny, now its Smith or Jordan. I would go Smith cause Jordan is a 3-4 DE and I just don’t see it. But I would be happy either way. And the OT Castanzo would be ok as well.

  60. Funky Munkey Says:

    Smith is a cover corner who puts pressure on the line of scrimage and has the speed to stay and recover down field. That would be my pick!!!!

  61. Deputy Buc Says:

    Joe i’ll fill in for your chats. This is killing me. LOL A live chat would be AWESOME right now.

    I believe in Mark Dominic too. I really wish we could have had Prince, but we could still go with Jordan, Bowers, or even Costanzo.

  62. Kevin Says:

    Jordan or Bowers or ???

  63. Funky Munkey Says:

    or trade down would be a nice option as well!!

  64. Funky Munkey Says:


  65. RealTalk Says:

    dont like this pick

  66. Funky Munkey Says:

    The one DE I truly didn’t want them to draft. I hope he proves me wrong but this sucks!!!!!!!!!!

  67. Kevin Says:

    In Dominik I trust…

  68. No Koolaid Says:

    YEAH!!! Go Adrian Clayborn, next big BUC!

  69. Theodore Says:

    Here’s a note on Clayborn

    “The biggest concern in Clayborn’s case is weakening and limitation of movement to his right arm.”

    Just great.

  70. Funky Munkey Says:

    Dom. hasn’t let us down yet…lets hope they get this right!!

  71. Patrick Says:

    We need to trade up into the 1st and get bowers Quinn or Jordan. Not very confident about clayborn

  72. Camby Says:


    Makes me wish even more that the Gnats hadnt taken Prince. Great. We got a guy we cant move around.

    And Boomer makes an attendance crack. Great

  73. Funky Munkey Says:

    The one thing is he just said Tampa is where he wanted to be and can’t wait to get there…lets hope he produces!!

  74. Deputy Buc Says:

    I really think this is a character pick. I don’t think we EVER draft Jimmy smith in this draft unless he falls to the last round.

    I will trust Mark Dominik. I really hope that this is another repeat pick of the Josh Freeman one where people hated it.

  75. Fear The Glow Says:

    Just a heads up:

    Dominik will be speaking on http://www.buccaneers.com in a few minutes.

  76. Deputy Buc Says:

    You take Clayborn because of how well-rounded he is and how good he is in multiple areas. Clayborn has been a 3-year starter for Iowa, a captain, had a great work ethic, been productive, and has shown fantastic instincts. He has excellent technique against the run and in getting to the quarterback. Clayborn can be very good with the bull rush, but also shows many different moves to get to the quarterback.

  77. gitarlvr Says:

    Don’t be fools. Adrian Clayborn was by far the safer pick. Obviously Daquan Bowers is greatly feared to be a medical bust by ALL teams if the Bucs of all teams passed on him in favor of another player with a medical red flag in Clayborn. At the end of the day even if Bowers knee holds up for a couple of productive years Clayborn is ultimately the most complete defensive end in the draft if you go by his 2009 tape. Bowers was the 2010 guy but it was only one year just as Clayborns year was 2010. Dominik knows his stuff. HE WOULD NOT PASS ON CAMERON JORDAN OF HE WAS WORRIED THAT CLAYBORN’S ERBS PALSY WOULD BE AN ISSUE. GUESS WHAT FOLKS!!!! JUST AS YOU BOOD JOSH FREEMAN SO SHALL YOU BOO ADRIAN CLAYBORN AND SO SHALL YOU BE WRONG!!!

  78. Deputy Buc Says:

    The bucs are trying to trade back into the first. Bowers too?!

  79. Fear The Glow Says:

    Raheem Morris just walked in on Dominik’s interview and told him “you got trades to make man” and Dom went back to the draft room. Interesting…

  80. gitarlvr Says:

    sorry i meant clayborns year was 2009

  81. Funky Munkey Says:

    Lets hope Deputy! I hope we trade back into the 1st and get Smith. His character has checked out with many teams and lets hope he checked out with Tampa. But that is a pipe dream and we will have to wait til 2mor night to get another pick!

  82. Funky Munkey Says:

    @fear…where did you see that?

  83. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    To all those who doubt the Clayborn pick, how did you guys feel about Freeman? Regardless, the pick is in. You now have a choice to be a fan and support him, or you can be a Thomas and b!tch and moan for 4 months.

  84. Funky Munkey Says:

    are we trying to get in front on NO???

  85. Jerry Says:

    Freeman didnt have medical concerns.

  86. Deputy Buc Says:

    I don’t think they take Jimmy Smith. I think if anything they continue to watch him slide. With all of the other people sliding, someone such as Jimmy Smith should slide further.

    My point, same situation last year with Mike Williams and we got him where?! Best steal of the draft. CB is not AS valued as other positions because they are only pertain a certain number of snaps a game.

  87. Funky Munkey Says:

    I personally wasn’t against the Freeman pick, we needed a QB and I saw alot of his college games and it was obvious he was a leader and got over his mistakes instantly. Great qualities. And Clayborn is talented and I trust Dom. so lets see, but he would’ve been there many picks after 20 IMO

  88. Fear The Glow Says:


    Scott Smith is doing live interviews on http://www.buccaneers.com and interrupted Dominik’s interview right after the Clayborn pick.

  89. jason Says:

    LOL dont know bout this pick just watched (utube)
    clayborn get ate up by tackle Camiri of Wisconsin. Didnt see anything great bout him. Watched Jordan dude is a beast think we made the wrong move. Got to have faith in Dom though.

  90. Funky Munkey Says:

    I agree Deputy normally, but Smith is on the same talent level as the #5 pick Patrick Peterson…thats hard to pass on even with this Talib’s trouble. But Smith is nothing like talib as a person.

  91. Funky Munkey Says:

    Wow…thanks @fear! We need to make a move I believe but who are we trying to trade with??? if it is SEA it will be for Smith, if someone else might be for Jordan. I hope its not for Bowers!!!

  92. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    This “medical concern” you are discussing is an issue he has dealt with his whole life. It’s not like he has to have microfracture surgery on his knee. You guys are too funny, you actually think you know more than Dominik. Just because you have watched YouTube highlights of a player does not mean you have scouted him. That’s so wrong it’s hilarious. Talk to me if you’ve actually seen him play a couple full games. Otherwise, you are talking out of your arse.

  93. Funky Munkey Says:


    Maybe you should do better research. He has never had a problem with it until his senior year. Which was just a few months ago. So i would see that as a problem. Saints just got Ingrahm….fffuuu_____kkkkk

  94. Funky Munkey Says:

    Trade with Chicago and draft Mikel Leshoure to make sure we get a stud RB since there is no longer a CB or LB worth drafting now. Mikel and Blount would be tops in the league!!!

  95. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Funky Munkey,

    Maybe you should do YOUR research. I’m pretty sure he was born with it! If you are going to criticize me, at least know what the hell you are talking about. He was born with Erb’s Palsy,he didn’t “develop” it his senior year. And yes, he has had a problem with it. He has underwent physical therapy for years and years. So again, who needs to do more research???

  96. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Funky Munkey,

    That’s what I thought.

  97. bucyea Says:

    Joe…Stop makin’ so much sense!!! Talib is the best young CB on the”football field” where the GAME is played. I don’t give a rats azz what he does off the field, as long he’s the BEST YOUNG CB on the field, IN THE LEAGUE!!!

  98. bucyea Says:

    …and will definitely need a “BEST YOUNG CB….” on the field with Roddy White and Julio “the BEAST” Jones, facing us twice a year for, in all likelihood “all the marbles”. like our long-term, as the Birdies gave away their future for Jones. Saints are goin DOWN HARD!!!

  99. bucyea Says:

    Erlb’s Palsy Syndrome idiots run amok. Do some research…einsteins, and there’s only one ‘commenter’ I’m referring to.

  100. bucyea Says:

    lastly…no offense intended, of course, to the majority here.

  101. Joe Says:


    Problem with Talib is, his nonsense off the field will keep him from being on the field.

    Joe can play cornerback better than Talib if Talib is sitting on his couch serving a suspension, or worse, a prison cell.

  102. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Where you at Funky Munkey? Are you still doing your research about Erb’s palsy?

  103. bucyea Says:

    Point taken joe, but ‘its all speculation at this point. What happens if a “dismissal’ or drop of charges or a not guilty? My point is…you don’t “give hime away” ie..cut, release, maybe a trade, but to release outright WILL NOT HAPPEN, nor should it, IMO

  104. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Funky Munkey:

    Here is a quote from Dominik: “His shoulder is fine,” Dominik said. “Erb’s Palsy is what the shoulder is. It’s something he was born with. He’s been playing with it and living with it his entire life. It’s nothing that gets worse. It’s just something that happened at birth and it’s something he’s played with his whole life. It’s not something we were concerned about at all as a medical staff.”

    So remind me again, who needs to do their research???

  105. Achetti813 Says:

    unless we plan to go get Nnamdi expect Talib in Pewter especially after what the Falcons did. I believe Myron will develop very nicely in the offseason even Barber said he has more natural ability than Talib

  106. Pete Dutcher Says:

    That Falcons trade has Rich McKay written all over it. And it should look familiar as well…he put the Bucs into the dark ages by using the same tactic.

  107. Joe Says:

    That Falcons trade has Rich McKay written all over it.

    Too bad he’s not in any authority to make a trade. 🙂
