Geno Hayes Not On Nnamdi Asomugha Bandwagon

July 20th, 2011

It seems many Bucs fans are in a lather for the flavor of the year.

Last year, Bucs fans were jumping up and down over malcontent wide receiver Brandon Marshall being signed as a free agent. Not only did Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik pass on Marshall, he also passed on a much better talent, Santonio Holmes, passed on him twice in fact.

Now, this offseason, it seems the same Bucs fans are banging the drum — loudly — for Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha who, from the way these same Bucs fans talk about him, is the second coming of Ronnie Lott and Deion Sanders all rolled into one.

Speaking on WHBO-AM 1040 yesterday afternoon with co-hosts Ronnie Lane and Tom Krasniqi, Bucs outside linebacker Geno Hayes not only shrugged his shoulders at the thought of the Bucs acquiring Asomugha, but Hayes stopped just short of saying it won’t happen.

After being asked by Krasniqi if Hayes has read Bucs fans Twittering over Asomaugha as if he is Kate Upton, Hayes admitted he did but was not moved.

“My opinion, the Bucs should do what they need to do. The Bucs are well-known for wanting what they want. You don’t need a guy like [Asomugha]. The Bucs are about building in-house.

“Mark Dominik and Rah, those guys are about building guys up. Right now we have a couple of young guys that I have very good confidence in.”

Hayes went on to say in the defense the Bucs play under Raheem Morris, a corner like Asomugha is more luxury than necessity.

Look, if the Bucs were just one dominant corner away from a Super Bowl berth, Joe would be all for this move. But the Bucs have much greater needs than to overpay players in an area of strength and depth.

Hayes himself isn’t exactly irreplaceable nor should Quincy Black be. Joe also would like to see another defensive tackle, as it’s pretty clear Brian Price won’t be playing this year and he may never play with screws in his pelvis. A few more big uglies on the offensive line wouldn’t hurt either.

Joe heard Shaun King yesterday on WQYK-AM 1010 mock his co-host and devout Asomugha proponent Toby David, saying the only reason David was in near tears over Asomugha is that David just wants to buy a jersey.

King, correctly, suggested Holmes, a proven clutch player and also a free agent, would have a much bigger impact on the Bucs than Asomugha.

    I think the Bucs do have more pressing needs other than cornerback. Biggers was pretty good last year but Talibs issues could make that position a little shaky. The real question is will the Bucs do anything in free agency. Surely they are not that well rounded of a team that we can’t bring in one or two key veteran players for a little leadership. If Benn does not come back well from knee surgery Mike Williams will need another receiver on the other side. After Blount do we really have a tailback that can pound it out besides an older Earnest Graham? These are positions I would like to see addressed but sadly I think the Glazers will sit on their wallet.

  2. Capt.Tim Says:

    An Aging legend, an unreliable hood, 3 untested young guys( a 3rd round pick, 2 7th rounders) in the Division with Ryan, Breeze, and now Newton. That’s your plan? Really? Knowing that we could lose both starters at any minute( different reasons).

    Thank god Gino and King aren’t GMs. Scoreboard would like a pinball machine.

    It’s good Gino and Shaun are bonding. The way he played last year, Hayes may be job shopping here pretty soon!

  3. David Says:

    “is pretty clear Brian Price won’t be playing this year”

    Hope thats sarcasm. I thought he should just barely miss the season opener?

  4. Chris FWC :) Says:

    @David, BP is out. That’s not Joe being sarcastic. BP can barely walk. He had a rare pelvis and hamstring surgery.

    Where’s OUR “Cup of Joe”, Joe? I feel groggy. Zzzzz Zzzzz

  5. Macabee Says:

    I agree with everything that every supporter of Asomugha says about him – the top free agent in the draft; a shutdown corner; collapses one side of the field; better than all of our CBs, including Talib and on and on. There is simply one fact that is obviously difficult to accept – nope, uh-uh, naw, nada – we ain’t gonna sign him. This is like looking up the dereierre of an expired canine. I say this because I’m not allowed to say, looking up a dead dog’s ….., you know. If this ship was ever in port, it sailed with the latest info regarding Talib and the expected return of T-Jack. Agreeing with Geno Hayes makes me as nervous as a house cat at the Westminster dog show. So, if I’m wrong, I will gladly eat my crow with a glass of chianti and fava beans!

  6. Jrock Says:

    Nick, did you change your opinion in yesterday’s post on Asomugha? There being 77 comments now, I didn’t go back to read them all.

    You’re echoing what I said yesterday now, adding depth in positions we don’t have depth in.

    @Capt Tim; are you serious? When Aqib was out last year (twice) the Bucs were solid. Biggers is starter material, Lewis is starter material that needs more snaps ie: not another veteran in front of him. We have two solid starters behind Aqib and Ronde. You remind me of the guy on the forums who wanted to draft Kyle Rudolph with our 1st pick, we simply have bigger needs in other places.

    I believe our FA needs line up as such: D-line, RB, WR. You’re spooked about losing a CB, what happens if we lose Blount? Yeah…

  7. Capt.Tim Says:

    While I always believe in getting the best ,it doesn’t have to be Nnamdi. But we better get a shutdown corner. I want Nnamdi because he is the very best. IF Talib straightens out( I hope), and Ronde holds on, we will have the best secondary in the league- Lewis will play the 4 spot. Then we can overcome injury, and still be dominant. It’s a passing, QB driven league. You build the best Secondary – you win !

  8. Joe Says:


    Hope thats sarcasm. I thought he should just barely miss the season opener?

    Joe wishes. 🙁

  9. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    MUST spend $60M; CAN spend $70M +

    Show me where they are going to spend that money

  10. Nick2 Says:

    The one thing that everyone that doesn’t want Nnamdi keeps counting on is that Talib will straighten out and this whole attempted murder charge or whatever it is goes away. I hope everyone is right because without Talib our secondary becomes shaky and Rhonde is VERY long in the tooth to be playing man to man if we ever need to and there are times we do. I am going to hope everyone is right and then I say we don’t need Nnamdi but Talib and T Jack have let us down so many times it stinks.

  11. Capt.Tim Says:

    JRock- how did we squire Blount? Wasn’t he an undrafted free agent- yeah, I think he was. You can( and we will) get depth there. LBers? Lots to be had- most better than ours- we’ll get one of those. Guards? Same as LBers( think Daryn Colledge- green bay!).

    Shutdown corners? Ha- other than this year- you get those in the first round. There are 5 positions critical to a teams success- QB, WR,LT,DE, and cornerback. When you can get the best CB in the league, without spending a trade or a draft pick- it’s crazy not to do so! All he cost us is money- THAT WE HAVE TO SPEND ANYWAY! If we lose ronde to age, and Talib to stupidity. We have Lewis, Biggers, Mack and Gaitor. Ryan and breeze are licking their lips!

  12. Joe Says:

    If we lose ronde to age, and Talib to stupidity. We have Lewis, Biggers, Mack and Gaitor. Ryan and breeze are licking their lips!

    Just like last year when Drew Brees lit up the Bucs secondary to roast the Bucs to end the season.

    Oh wait… 🙂

  13. McBuc Says:

    +1 for Joe

  14. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Our secondary is fine. More than fine…very promising, in fact.

    All these Madden/fantasy/hot-player-bandwagon type fans who are all lathered up over Asomugha are going to be taking a very cold shower real soon courtesy of Mark Dominik. That’ll wash all that lather off real fast.

    Hayes, King and Joe himself are all correct: IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN WITH ASOMUGHA. Get over it.

  15. Jampersand Says:

    Joe, this Brian Price thing is getting depressing. I’m beginning to think we’ll never get to see the spark he showed in his first training camp. He looked dominant out there at times.

    Any FA DT suggestions?

  16. Bucworld Says:

    We are fine at corner. By the way, all of the linebackers are replaceable.

  17. Joe Says:


    1) You are right.

    2) Not sure. Haven’t really studied that.

  18. TJ Says:

    If anything… We pick up that dude from the Bengals (another young, up, and comer who fits the bucs profile). Or possibly Cromartie when people pass up on him because of his non stellar numbers from last year

  19. TJ Says:

    Plus we have a lot of young talent we need lock up for the early future that will give us a strong nucleus for a few years.

  20. Chris FWC :) Says:

    I hope we keep snatching players from practice squads. I don’t care if it is a underhanded practice. It just shows the Bucs have their eyes everywhere.

    We need more BIG man talent! 2Lbs (Mlb, ROLB), 2 DT (Here is where I’d spend my FA $), 3 OL (C, RT, LG) would be nice.

  21. Dave Says:

    Chris FWC

    NO ONE thinks grabbing a player from a practice squad is “underhanded” excepet apparantely the Bengals. Everyone else does it and the system is desinged so you can do it.

  22. MOBucs Says:

    Seems a little premature to assume Price is done for the year. I’ve heard PUP list as a real possibility, but nothing about instant IR. Last I heard, Price had started running and was tearing up the Zumba dance scene. Let’s get everyone back to work and let the medical staff do their job. We’ll know soon enough what Price’s fate is.

  23. Nate Says:

    I dont care what anyone says we need aso!… Were in a division with matt ryan and 2 star wideouts on that team now.. Then theres drew brees…lets see were playing the packers who has great wide outs.. the lions have some stud wideouts we couldnt stop calvin johnson maybe with aso we win that game!?!?!? but with a shut down corner we can play man against the falcons and throw everyone in the box to stop the run.. which we couldnt at all last year and i still remember rudd getting ran over!

  24. McBuc Says:

    Nate…Matt Ryan, a star receiver, and a potential star receiver. Tampa has Freeman, a star receiver, and a potential star receiver as well. If the plan works, and the rebuilt line under new management gets some pressure, the Bucs secondary will look awesome. They already are very good. not to mention, the TB wins that Lion’s game if the refs called Winslows play the right way. I believe Ruud also had a key play in that Falcon’s game. If the line improves so will the LB corps.

  25. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:


    I’m on the Nnamdi bandwagon, but we don’t NEED him.

    He is an upgrade over what we have. A major upgrade, and for somebody to suggest that we’re set at DB because we have Myron Lewis and EJ Biggers makes me question their knowledge of the sport.

  26. MVPFreeman Says:



    Hope thats sarcasm. I thought he should just barely miss the season opener?

    Joe wishes. ”

    Where did you hear that? Do you have a link you would like to share with me? The last I heard, he was still re-habbing and he might be a little slow to come back (maybe a game or two). But you say he will miss, straight up, the whole season? Sources.

  27. Joe Says:

    Sources? ME!

    Joe spoke with Brian Price, saw the body language, heard the words out of his mouth, spoke with people in the know, listened to people in the know.

    No one has ever had an injury like this and returned to play.

    If Price only misses two games, the Bucs and Price himself have hit the lottery.

  28. Capt.Tim Says:

    Joe, I know it was a long time ago, But Ronde PLAYED in the New Orleans game. And he played well. He also was tremendous is directing the young guys into the proper positions- cause they didn’t know.

    If you are cOnfident he can do that until he’s 42 – then wow! No worries! If you honestly believe that Talib is a reformed man, and is committed to the team- cool! We’re set!

    But if you really believe either of those things- ya may need some professional help.

    I think the great Ronde Barber is on borrowed time, and it could end in a minute- I hope not, cause I respect the heck outta that man. But he’s 38. It’s gonna end soon. – cue the sad music, and bow our heads!

    Talib has already spent his borrowed time. He’s escalating his violence- not slowing down or showing signs of growing up! He’s one more stupid act away from being Pacman jones- and league suspension.

    So- there you are Lewis, Biggers, Mack, Gaitor. And you better hope Lewis doesn’t get hurt. Mack isnt good, Biggers isnt as good as some think, and Gaitor is a coupla years out

    Oh, yeah- pinball scores! Breeze and Ryan are licking their lips. And I’m saying “I told ya so”.We need a shutdown corner,or we could absolutely be screwed this year. The defense will be weakened if we lose Ruud( I think we will). Lose Talib( we will), and Ronde isn’t 100%, and we wont stop anybody- I don’t care what LBers, DEs,Dts we sign. If our secondary rolls up, we’re done. Josh couldn’t score enough points to stop that blood shed!

  29. Capt.Tim Says:

    Terrible about Price. I hope the experts are wrong, but I don’t know that we’ll ever see Brian Price play. It’s such a debilitating injury, in such a high stress location, that I don’t think he can play again. I was worried from the beginning about that injury. Less severe pelvic injuries have been career Enders. Price’s injury was very severe. I hope his young age helps make a difference, but it’s not sounding good.

  30. Joe Says:


    Three things:

    1) Joe repeats this again, if you sign Nnamdi, who sits, Ronde or Talib? You pick and the reaction in the locker room won’t be good. Rah doesn’t want nor need such a stink bomb at One Buc Palace.

    2) You don’t think Mark Dominik is preparing already for life without Ronde? Of course he is (see Biggers, Lewis).

    3) There are much bigger holes on the Bucs than cornerback, far more. Joe just can’t wrap his head around breaking the bank on a player that is not needed. It’s borderline irresponsible. This isn’t fantasy football and Joe doesn’t need to buy a jersey that bad.

    This banging of the drum for Nnamdi is just like Brandon Marshall wailing of last year.

  31. hfxbuc Says:

    As far as FA DT’s a guy to look at is Brandon Mebane. He and Price are similar but Mebane is proven. I think he”ll be too expensive though.

  32. MVPFreeman Says:


    “No one has ever had an injury like this and returned to play.”

    I don’t think anybody has EVER had an injury like this, so who’s to say what will happen?

    If you really think hes not coming back, point taken. Ive never talked to the the dude (although I have seen a video where he expressed poor body language reminiscent to that of Antonio Bryant, post Cinci trade).

    I was just wondering if a report came out that I missed, thats all. Good day sir.

  33. gotbbucs Says:

    This is getting to be such a silly arguement. The Raiders have had Asomugha for how many years now and how many playoff games have they won? The Jets defense isn’t good because Revis is on the field, they’re good because they can create pressure on the QB. That’s always been the case at any level of football. Good QB’s pick apart good secondaries more often than not if they have time.
    If Dominik thought that our secondary was our problem he would have addressed it much sooner than waiting for the shortest offseason in the history of the league. Morris is extremely good at putting his secondary in the right positions and they brought in Keith Millard, Grady Stretz, Clayborn, and Bowers to fix what the real problem is.

    Besides all of that, $20 million a year for a 30 year old player is pretty nuts. He would have surely been worth that the last time he was up for a new contract, but I don’t think so this time.

  34. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Joe said: “This banging of the drum for Nnamdi is just like Brandon Marshall wailing of last year.”


    This is a different team than it was last year. A year older and leaders in the locker room have definitely been established. Furthermore, Brandon Marshall is a headcase, gave up on his team in Denver, and was coming off a domestic abuse charge. Nnamdi has always been described as high character. You want a free agent signing to compare it to, then look at Charles Woodson’s signing with the Packers. The Bucs were ready the “aging” DB 5 freaking years ago, but wanted to move him to Safety. “He’s too old to play corner” we heard from everybody, including the Bucs FO. How’d that end up working out?

    Asking “who would sit” and suggesting that DB isn’t a position of need because you’re happy with EJ Biggers & Myron Lewis, is maybe the most asinine opinion I’ve ever read on a football related blog. You’re talking about a 7th round pick and a 3rd round pick who combined were probably on the field for 10% of the snaps last year. Additionally, trying to make a point about “who would sit” leads me to believe you’ve garnered the majority of your football “expertise” sitting on your duff playing Madden. To suggest that the top two corners on the team are going to play and everybody else is going to spend their time on the bench is mind-bending. Ronde played the slot last year and some Safety. I guarantee you, if you go back and look this defense last year they played the majority of snaps on the field with 3 DB’s. Not only that, but I’ve seen you on this very blog opine in favor of Ike Taylor or Jonathon Joseph? Who would “sit” in that scenario? You think one of those guys is going to sign somewhere they’re going to be a backup? Please

    This is football, the name of the game is W’s, and you do that with the best players available to you. Nnamdi is either the number one or number two corner in the game……not only would he step up and immediately be the best DB on this team, he’d be the best player on our defense. You’re either getting better or you’re not. Now, convince me that Nnamdi Asomugha would not make this team better. Tell me where this team is going to spend $60M-$70M over the course of two weeks.

    Creamsickle…Don’t hold back man!

  36. Patrick Says:

    Barber’s almost done and Talib may be gone after 2011. Two possible huge holes in the secondary. Sign Asomougha and let Biggers, Gaitor, and Lewis fight for the other CB spot if we lose Talib.

  37. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @MVPFreeman Bo Jackson had a similar injury. It ended his NFL career.

  38. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @Creamsiclebananahammock. Reading comprehension is key. Joe was not comparing Asomugha to Marshall. He was comparing the ridiculous fan outcrys for Aomugha to the ridiculous fan outcrys for Marshall, because neither was/is a need.

  39. K2theSoldier Says:

    LOL now Santonio Holmes would be a bigger impact than the best or 2nd best corner in the game? Really? And Santonio is better than Brandon Marshall? Geez man.
    This witch hunt against NA is really getting pathetic.

  40. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:


    You can’t compare the fan outcry without comparing the players

  41. Mauha Deeb Says:

    @MVP Absolutely you can! Who they are pining for doesn’t change how or what that are pining for i.e. spending huge dollars on a position not in need. You could insert any Free Agent CB or WR and it doesn’t change. There is a hysteria that overwhelms the fan base every year come free agency and group think takes over.

  42. Mauha Deeb Says:

    That last comment was for creamsiclebananahammock, not MVP.

  43. Joe Says:

    Thank you Mauha Deeb.

  44. BigMacAttack Says:

    I think Geno has his hands full taking care of Geno and shouldn’t worry about what anybody else is doing. Like the other Bucs’ LB’s, he is probably on pretty thin ice right about now….. if he is still in good physical shape. If not, it’s crack, crack, sink, sink, 911 to Harry Potter.

  45. Matt B Says:

    gotbbucs – one of the best, well-stated comments I’ve ever read on this site…

    I disagree with those who seem to dismiss the 2010 play and upside of Biggers and Lewis. As Joe has pointed out, the defense played quite well after Talib got hurt. Joe also had a post from one of those football stats sites showing that Biggers was a highly efficient DB. Lewis looked good to me in his limited action late in the season. He was even in great position on the bogus P.I. call in Baltimore. We might have seen more of him if he wasn’t hut the first half of the year.

    Overall, the team was 7th in the league last year in passing yards allowed per game (201/gm) and that was with VIRTUALLY NO PASS RUSH. The Jets, with Revis, were less than a yard per game better. I thought part of the reason for that ranking would be that opponents had fewer attemps against us since they could run at will. Yet I checked and the 521 passes thrown against the Bucs isn’t abnormal compared to other teams. These numbers were produced with Biggers playing quite a bit as our third DB.

    So, for all these reasons, I believe the secondary would be OK if either Talib or Barber went down. I conclude DB is not a pressing need right now. Maybe it will be next year but N.A. will be getting into the latter stage of his career and people say he’s not a good fit for our system anyway.

    I also go back to a point I made yesterday. If you pay N.A. $19 mil or whatever, while Barber and Talib – who have toiled here and proven themselves to the organization by their play – are making for far less than that, you are going to mess up what seems to be a very cohesive locker room and I truly believe that stuff carries over to the field.

    Now, the question is how does Mark D plan to spend all the money he must spend without N.A. I don’t know the answer but I’m certain we’ll see the answer soon.

  46. Nate Says:

    You guys are crazy we have to spend 60million dollars!!!! We might as well get the best player available.. And thats Aso hell even get cramartie.. As Mark and Raheem said you can never have enuff DB’s!!!! In Mark I TRUST! Why spend the money on speculation when theres the BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE!!! and We have to spend the money.. Raheem came from the db coaching aso can figure out the system easy! I do love our new D line but theres a big “IF” we know ASO can play… pay the man hes worth it!

  47. Capt.Tim Says:

    1) who sits?? What century is this? Atlanta never has a TE and Fullback on the field at the same time! Neither does New Orleans, or 80% of NfL teams! It’s 3 WR sets as a base offense. Fullback is almost a vanished position.4 WRs are more Common than 2! 2 WRs, a fullback, TE, and RB went out in the 80’s! You see empty backfields more than 2 WRs! None of those 3 set.
    We played a 3-3-5 defense 50% of the time. The question is- if Talib gets suspended, and ( ( god forbid!) at 38, Ronde pulls a Hamstring- who plays??? Lewis, Mack, Biggers? On a all too frequent 4 WR set? Gaitor? One of them gets turf toe- who’s next?

    2) of course Mark Dominck prepared for the lose of Barber( Myron Lewis). He didn’t prepare for the rolling chaos storm that is Talib- who could! That’s why they begged Ronde for another year. At 38 – holding up to a full time starting CB job is gonna be difficult. I hope he can do it! But they are counting on him to be field coach for the young guys. If he isn’t there, the young guys will struggle!

    3) if we lose Talib to his own immaturity, and Barber for ANY reason, getting a CB is gonna require draft picks or players. And losing both of our starting CBs is sadly a very real possibilty. Try getting a decent CB at midseason- lol- good luck, you’ll be trading Arrelious Benny to find a starter. Now, we can get the best one in the league . For nothing but money- money we got tons of, and gotta spend anyway.

    I believe We will do the right thing. I think Mark Dominck isn’t gonna risk our season on a player with no team loyalty. He will get another quality competitor at CB, and assure that we aren’t facing the best passing attacks in league, with a bunch of first year starters – good luck with that!

  48. Capt.Tim Says:

    Don’t get me wrong Joe, I respect your opinion in the matter, and can see your point. I’m not nearly” the sky is falling” as some of my post sound. I’m presenting a different point of view. I do believe we face the possiblityof losing both starting CBs very early. I do have some faith in Lewis and Biggers. But that leaves us dangerously thin, against some tremendous passing attacks. Nnamdi is nothing but money. Dominick can give him the long term he wants, and structure the money the way we want.

    I understand we have worse needs at OLB, and need some depth at DT and RB. But our CB situation is a very thin ice issue from collapse. We could fix it for years to come, at virtually no impact to the team( draft picks/ players).

    Or do we spend next summer like this one. Wondering if Talib is done, and spending a first round pick on a rookie- who might never be half what Nnamdi brings to us right now? I say save that pick for a nose tackle- sign the leagues best CB right now, and never worry about our secondary again for 5-6 years!

  49. Nnamdi Asomugha An Interesting Option For the Bucs | TampaSportsGuy Says:

    […] concern people how long Asomugha will play at his highest potential at the age of 29. Voices from inside the team also have made comments about the corners stating that “a corner like Asomugha is more luxury […]

  50. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Take Joseph on a long term deal at $7-$9 million per before Asomugha on a short-term deal at $17-$19 million. No brainer.

  51. Nate Says:

    Capt couldnt agree more! Aso is the best player available! I feel like the old bucs when we had good players in sapp, lynch, and brooks.. Except its on offense now with Freeman, Williams, and blount.. Its time to bring in some A talent to the defense and the only A talent is aso!

  52. Capt.Tim Says:

    I’m a luxury guy!! The best secondary in the league is a luxury we can afford- so buy it!! I know you guys don’t think that our Rookie/ ist year player D- line is gonna be dominant this year- do you? Really? They will be awesome someday, but with no time with the coaches, no Mini camps, no nothing- this is gonna be a lost year for the young D-line. Thomas 2. 2 will be calling Clayborn and Bowers wasted picks next offseason. It won’t be their fault, but they will struggle this year- thanks to everyones favorite lockout!!

    Given that- doesn’t a great secondary sound like a luxury we might need? If we struggle against the run( Foster ain’t gone to Mini camp either!!), struggle with getting pressure, and lose one of our best pass defenders( Ruud)- you guys might just wanna figure out what this defense CAN stop this year!! Looking kinda shaky to me. Baby D- line, we lose Ruud, Black and Hayes played horrible last year. Barber is older. Talib is in deeper trouble- hmmm, you guys may wanna taper that optimism! The offense will be bettr, but the weak squad will be weaker, not better, til the rooks get an offseason with Millard and Stretz to figure out what they should be doing!

  53. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Cpt Tim, as a Bucs fan I want to see them get better. I have yet to see anyone make a valid argument that the Bucs are a better team without Nnamdi than they would be with him.

  54. tmac87 Says:

    If we could get Andre Johnson for nothing but money we HAVE to spend anyway, how many would object to getting Josh Freeman the best target in the league? Aso is the same thing on the other side of the ball in a more desirous position of need. If you are going to depend on Biggers why not bring the best corner in the game to teach him? Talib will screw himself. Ronde, like the angel he is, will make it through a season and the tandem would give Brees and Ryan fits….. Talib being our 3rd option would be NASTY…

    How does Aso make anyones job harder on D? ….. Biggers would make it harder on Josh. As long as we can also get our LB, why would ANYONE oppose??

  55. tmac87 Says:


  56. Nate Says:

    Sign him! watch him stop Calvin Johnson we win week 1.. Dont sign him watch us lose and Lewis get skooled… U heard it here first!

  57. Nnamdi Asomugha Says:

    C’mon guys! I’d love to play alongside Aqib Talib in the secondary! That’d be fun! He could also show me the Tampa nightline. He can also teach me proper punching technique for when we get in the taxis.
