Head Cheerleader Aqib Talib

August 13th, 2011

Wearing a Bucs t-shirt, his trademark fat gold chain and seemingly flanking Raheem Morris and Josh Freeman on the sidelines, Aqib Talib was the head Bucs cheerleader tonight.

Give that man a towel, tattoos and some pink hair, and he could have been Dennis Rodman cheering on his teammates (pick a team) as they ice another playoff game. Joe’s glad to see Talib being a vocal leader and embracing the team spirit.

Sadly, the Bucs’ real cheerleader hotties don’t travel to road games. (Anyone see the somewhat obese woman wearing Kansas City colors that rode a spotted horse out onto the field as part of the Chiefs pregame hype? Joe’s glad he lives in Tampa.)

Gerad McCoy, Arrelious Benn, Kellen Winslow, Myron Lewis, and Luke Stocker joined Talib among the Bucs in street clothes Friday, as Team Raheem stayed cautious with its wounded, though Joe didn’t know Lewis was banged up — again.

    When did Bowers leave game and undress?

  2. Fear The Glo Says:

    Was Talib injured or they just held him out? I saw him on the sideline but I don’t remember hearing about him getting hurt.

    Could be a sign of maturity, last year when he didn’t play he didn’t hang out on the sidelines with the team. Some have gone as far to say that he was getting wasted in a luxury box while the team battled without him.

    He actually wasn’t supposed to be at that game at all FreemanBomb5. No report that I read said he was getting “wasted”. Way to spin around a story haha wow

    even if lewis or others are banged up it doesnt matter as long as freeman is game. this team has quite a few 2nd stringers good enough to start for many teams and thats what playoff teams are made off. seriously how many other teams have backup linebackers like hayward and watson chomping at the bit for starting spots like the bucs? u could fill a bad teams 2nd string with the bucs 3rd stringers.

    Joe, I missed the game due to work (boo). Anyway, did Bowers play at all?

    dumba$$ mike I’m probably the biggest Talib fan and supporter there is. I always posted that he wasn’t the bad guy people make him out to be, I was just revisiting what others on the site mentioned.
