Aqib Talib’s Days With Bucs Numbered

October 13th, 2012

Joe must have been overcome with ESP (not N) this morning.

After having a fuzzy head from swilling many, many beers last night after watching an MLB-record comeback by the Cardinals over the Nats, Joe woke up wanting nothing more than to suck caffeine and veg on his leather couch and inhale college football.

With so many blowouts, Joe was drawn to Northwestern at Minnesota and noticed a Minnesota cornerback by the name of Troy Stoudermire. The dude was all over the field, making solid open field tackles and Joe offered that Bucs fans should keep an eye out for him, especially since Stoudermire holds the Big Ten record for kick return yards.

Moments later, Joe learns of Aqib Talib’s latest run-in with rules.

As Bucs fans know by now, Talib was suspended effective now, for the next four games for what the Bucs say was a violation of the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Talib claims he took Adderall “without a prescription,which is just mindblowing to Joe for the simple fact that obtaining any type of prescription medicine other than from a doctor is breaking the law.

Talib’s contract is up after this season. At best, Talib is a gifted, yet terribly inconsistent cornerback and frankly, cannot be trusted. If you cannot be counted on to suit up on Sundays (or Thursday or Monday nights), and your play is wildly inconsistent, then what’s the point?

Though Talib has been one of Greg Schiano’s staunchest supporters, the NFL is a business, no matter how team executives may feel about a player.

Thus, Talib will very likely be playing next year wearing a different-colored jersey.

    I want to believe in the guy but geeze. I can’t judge him but geeze. Now out CB situation is horrible. Way to let the team and your fans down home. God bless

    Adderall is used to Attention Defecit Disorder, and ADHD. It mellows those with ADD and ADHD out. But, for those w/o those disorders, you might as well take Crystal Meth. Adderall is an Amphetamine.

    Might sound crazy, but I can still see him getting an extension but at a bargain price that favors the Bucs. He’s still worth the investment as the #2 CB, just not as a #1. As a fan I’m not ready to pull the plug on Talib. This is not Tanard we’re talking about. Just my thoughts.

    I’m more than tired of this crap. Glad it’s a contract year. So many of our players over the last few years have been busts due to skill. Then on top of that we get guys like Talib and Jackson who have potential but just refuse to get it together.

    No way we could even consider paying this guy big bucks. Can count on him not going to jail or getting suspended. Garbage.

    Should we start considering Black at Free safety and Ronde to Nickel with Biggers and Wright outside?

    Wow he did it again !!! he let down the Bucs crew again!! I no longer care if he is a good/fair/decent player.This guy thinks of only one thing and it ain,t football!! Its time for the bucs to make a real statement and fire his butt NOW!! and then make the biggest statment and win without him.Am I over reacting? or is everyone sick of this guy giving the crew the shaft.TIME TO MOVE ON!

    Joe is confident the seller of the one (?) Adderall to Talib was well-versed in behavioral disorders.

    Another poor decision!!!

  10. JonBuc Says:

    And the cool cat that is Aqib Talib has just spent his 9th Buccaneer life. The Bucs are now thinner at cb than o-line. Well played, Sir.Well played…

  11. BigMacAttack Says:

    I say again, what a dumbass. Tjax 2.0

  12. BigMacAttack Says:

    Did I say what a dumbass?

    What a dumbass.

    Kick that pos to the curb.

  13. Jbrooks8604 Says:

    I’m with you bigmac. If Joe is right and Lewis gets more play time then an already poorly performing secondary just got a whole lot worse. Brady Quinn career day?

  14. Fear The Glow Says:

    Can’t fix stupid..

  15. ElioT Says:

    Wow! What a D-Bag!!!

    This blows, more talent wasted and now even thinner depth at CB.

    I’m nervous with KC’s WRs coming to town with that running game. We’re gonna have to load the box to stop the run and I like even Brady freaking Quinn vs. Myron Lewis and EJ Biggers in man coverage.

    Look for a big day for the Chiefs offense. Freeman and Co.i are going to have to score some points tomorrow.

  16. Pruritis Ani Says:

    Get rid of him.. The guy is a cancer on the team and society in general. He goes from one problem to the next. He’s either fighting with teammates, taxi cab drivers, the FHP, or playing with guns. Now it’s prescription drugs… Does anyone really believe this is the last time he’ll get into trouble?

  17. 76buc76 Says:

    I just picked up Brady Quinn in my fantasy league and I’m starting him.Hope Freeman is ready to put up some point’s.

  18. Aldo Says:

    2. Johnthan Banks
    3. Xavier Rhodes
