Talib Returns To Practice

December 13th, 2011

It looks like Aqib Talib won’t be dancing, vibing and pumping up his teammates on the sidelines on Saturday night.

Injured Talib returned to practice today with his bum hamstring and Raheem Morris was impressed, with high hopes for Talib’s return to the field.

“He actually went out and did a lot. He went through a full battery of practice,” Raheem said.

Before popping his hamstring a few plays into the Bucs-Carolina game, Talib had played his best two games of the season.

It would be quite a shot in the arm for the Bucs to have Talib back on the field. They’ll need at least a few big plays on defense to be competitive Saturday against Dallas.

    For all the bad things he does I loved him on the sideline last week getting all fired up with his gold chain and what not. Man has swag and I love it now if he could only be consistant and become that shut down corner

    Damn, now we don’t get to see snoop dogg performing like an idiot on the sidelines while his team gets spanked – again.

  5. jvato24 Says:

    Atleast he showed emotion. More than anyone else on the Bucs had.

    and by the way Joe, what is considered competitive with this Bucs team ?? actually tied in the game or just down by 10 with 2 mins to go ??

  6. Thomas 2.2.. Says:

    To the remaining 2 rah supporters, as long as the team shows up on time Saturday night (instead of Sunday as usual) then Rah will deserve credit and “another year.”

    I am confident that some of the players will forget (because rah will forget to emphasize it) that the game is Saturday and not Sunday and players will be late or not show up etc.

    This organization is so rookie-league.

    4 year olds show emotion when their helium ballon slips out of their grasp…..

    Raheem said. “He actually went out and did a lot. He went through a full “battery” of practice,”
    This is Rah speak for “he was back to his trash talking, helmet smacking, taxi cab beating, gun toting, yumbass self”.
    Can’t wait to see what stupid a** penalty he gets at the worst possible time.
    The Bucs need a shut down corner, instead they got stuck with a corner that won’t shut the hell up.

    MTM- lmao!

  10. BucfaninMI Says:

    Does it even matter at this point? All any of us want is a winner,and erase the ugly history, I don’t care who the coach is! I want any or all Bucs coaches to succeed. (in TB)

  11. Pete422 Says:

    @RastaMon: Thanks for that link? More “dumbing down” of our society…

  12. BucfaninMI Says:

    @ Pete422 you actually made it thru that video?

  13. thibs5599 Says:

    quit hating on talib he hasn’t been that bad on the field yea he had a penalty against the bears and gets roasted once in a while but he is a top 20 corner in this league quit hating on him. Imagine if the bucs had a some pass rush more often than not or if we could stop the run or if maybe there were some other dbacks who could help him out talib would be a top ten talent. Last year before he got injured he was locking people down

  14. RastaMon Says:

    @Pete422…more dumbing down of franchise fan base…errrr…those that are enabling ,excusing,the current offering….Talib IS an AZZ Clown ! and should be /have been released after the street gunfire incident

    @MiniBucFan….you actually made it this far in the season…

  15. RastaMon Says:

    in cell block D…

  16. Nate Says:

    Chip Kelly from Oregon will be the bucs new head coach next year.. you heard it here first…

  17. Thomas 2.2.. Says:

    Chip Kelly would be very exciting but the Glazers wouldn’t pay him more than Phil Knight.

  18. K2theSoldier Says:

    @ Thomas, paying a new coach isn’t going to be a problem….If I turn out to be wrong about that and they hire Joe to be the coach then I’ll own up to it. But I have no doubt in my mind that they’ll spend some cash on a big name. Chip Kelly would be a cool choice. We’ll see.

  19. Patrick Says:


    I actually liked your idea of Tom Clements from the Packers.

    But he hasn’t been an offensive coordinator. Only a position coach. Too big of a jump?

    Maybe as the offensive coordinator?

  20. Joe Says:


    It’s all about No. 5, so Dominik says. Clements helped develop Aaron Rodgers. That’s good enough for this beer-guzzling writer.

  21. Bob Fox Says:

    Tom Clements was an offensive coordinator for Buffalo in 2004 and 2005 before he joined Mike McCarthy’s staff in Green Bay in 2006.

  22. McBuc Says:

    At least if Joe was the coach, we would see LB run the ball 30 times a game! It would take both Joe’s tho…

  23. Bob Fox Says:

    Clements gets an endorsement from Rodgers…


  24. Patrick Says:

    @Joe…..IF we extend Raheem one year OR fire him, maybe Norv Turner as OC, and Tom Clements as QB coach?

    Doubt Turner will get another head coaching job after failed stints in Oakland, Washington, and now San Diego.

    He is a great offensive coach though. Won back to back Super Bowls in ’92 and ’93 with Aikman, Emmit, and the Cowboys.

  25. Patrick Says:

    *never mind the Clements as QB coach. He’s already that for the Packers.

  26. sandbagrudy Says:

    Maybe He’ll bring his his gold chains and freemans desert eagle to the game and he can shoot some of the cowboys on the field like the last boyscout. That can be his exit move to the big house killing a cowboy must be on his to do list pistol whip your brother in law slug out a cabbi it’s all aggressive play yangry if you will

    This is a non story…..

    One thing I do not want is a college coach (without serious NFL experience). Not to say that it can’t work, but it RARELY does. I just think it’s too big of a gamble. I think it is time to go with either an established NFL head coach, or a successful coordinator (but not one from the Patriots, they always suck). One interesting name that I am thinking is Rob Ryan. I don’t know if he would be a good choice (not sure our personnel matches the 3-4 he runs, but it worked pretty good for the Texans this year), but it would sure as hell be exciting. And just for entertainment value alone, I would be on board with his hire.

  29. Nate Says:

    Chip kelly would be awesome! Look at the 49ers coach hes doing great.. Chip kelly took a team of really no ones and went to the BCS bowl game against auburn.. His first player selected in this year nfl draft was a 4th round draft pick!!!! Sounds to me like good coaching…..

  30. raphael Says:

    is it me or does talib really look like Snoop Dog….

    btw the ability to game plan and scheme has never been more apparent after watching the lack of either this year…its been embarrassing watching Raheem with the “deer in the headlights “look all year…

  31. thibs5599 Says:

    The texans switched to the 3 4 in one season and they have the best def in the league. This team could easily do it all we need is some big bodies to play NT I think clayborn could play end so could price and mccoy. Bowers would be a beast as a stand up OLB as well. People act like it is so hard to transition to a 3 4 but it really is not

  32. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Chip kelly would be awesome! Look at the 49ers coach hes doing great.. Chip kelly took a team of really no ones and went to the BCS bowl game”


    Harbaugh had NFL experience. He also played QB in the NFL. His father was a coach. Big difference. Also, Oregon was very good before Chip Kelly got there. I know you don’t see them very much in Florida, but trust me, they were very good for years before Kelly was the HC. Have you ever seen Oregon’s offense? It’s not exactly an NFL offense (and before you say it, we don’t have Tim Tebow at QB so please don’t compare us to Denver). I see nothing in Kelly’s resume that says he will be a good NFL coach. He may very well be, but odds are he won’t. Are you willing to take another chance?

  33. Nate Says:

    Tony dungy went on record and said he would be a good nfl coach.. thats good enough for me!
