Talib Settling In

November 14th, 2012

Helmet-wielding, cabbie-slugging, Adderrall-popping, coach-cussing, referee-charging, pistol-friendly, granny-hassling Aqib Talib appeared at his first Patriots practice today, and Bill Belicheat praised Talib for three days of hard work since his suspension ended Monday.

Joe’s intrigued by the marriage of Talib and his new head coach, a couple of cheaters united. Also, it’s been amazing seeing the reaction out of Boston, where Talib is being viewed as a savior of the Pats defense in many circles.

Belicheat was asked today about why he’s sure Talib won’t have off-the-field trouble. Belicheat responded saying the Pats only sign players they’re confident in. Good luck with that, Bill.

    You know what? Good luck. Maybe he can turn his life around. Wish he could have gotten his stuff straight here. We invested a lot of heart ache in this idiot. But if he can put it all together, good for him.

    That made me actually laugh out loud.

  3. Andrew Says:

    he will get into trouble by the end on next season. bank on it. its always something with this guy. he is talented but he is not at all dependable.

  4. Colb Says:

    The Patriots organization doesn’t tolerate problems and remember that he’s still auditioning for a new contract at the end of the year. I know he had his issues in Tampa but he also shut down some mighty good receivers.

    Am I the only TB fan cheering for Talib in New England?

  5. raphael Says:

    just give him a little time…he will screw it up..

  6. Stranger Says:

    Nah, I wish him well too. I think he will keep it together up there.

  7. skp Says:

    i wish him well but history suggests he will fail to make the most of the opportunity

  8. Bucnjim Says:

    We gave him so many chances to turn things around. Even coach Schiano took him in after everything he did. No I don’t wish him well! It’s complete lack of respect to teamates, coaches and the organization who stood behind him for all this time.

  9. Have A Nice Day Says:

    He’ll well up there. That team needed a talented DB and they got it.

  10. ArkansasBucFan Says:

    Is it wrong of me to hope he succeeds there, just so I can justify being angry with him for not keeping his $*** together while in Tampa? Because if he just flames out, gets burned with regularity and then has a meltdown at Boston Common and beats the pulp out of somebody, then we all just get to shrug and call it “Aqib being Aqib”.

  11. Oahubuc Says:

    I absolutely hate everything about this. Not even wishing we had him still, just hating it.

    Joe, can you please move on from the Belicheat thing? he is a close personal friend of our head coach so how about showing our coach respect by not disrespecting his friend. its just old and played out. other than that love the site hope Talib does well and L-J keeps playing at a high level. sooo happy with the Bucs!!! BUC IT IM OUT!!!!!!!!

    Joe how would you like to have Belechic here???

  14. JerseyBucsfan Says:

    Can’t believe people wish him to do bad, get off his back I wish him well

    Billy, Billy, Billy this is how it always starts with Talib. “What a hard worker”, “great team mate”. Then he try’s to whip a cabbie, pop an adderal, pistol whip a sisters boyfriend. Blah blah blah. Thank god he is not on the Bucs. Good bye Talib you are the weakest link.

  16. BigMacAttack Says:

    Talib is not that good for starters. Funny thing is that his college tape was no different. He made plays at times but he allowed WR’s to get behind him and would give up big plays. Mayock documented all his flaws including a lack of closing speed…. And Chuckles the Clown took him anyway. It was another bad pick after years of bad picks. The film doesn’t lie and he takes plays off and I’d call him a 50-50 DB. That’s the good.

    Now we know how often he freaks out and acts like a 10 yr old. It takes about 6-9 months. So he should do well through the this season and play just well enough with his 50-50 A$$. Then Big Bill will give him a decent contract and by May, after the Draft he’ll be back in trouble, 6-9 months.

    What did Einstein say? Stupid is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. This leopard thug will not change his tattoos.

  17. j lynch Says:

    There was some chatter about Brandon Spikes giving Talib 9 stiches in the mouth any truth to that???

  18. T.Howard Says:

    How long before he’s an Oakland Raider?


    Some people just can’t help themselves. His history shows he can’t stay out of trouble. The suspension was just the latest. The sooner his name is not mentioned in these parts, the better.

    Screw that guy.

  20. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    I gotta say i dont miss Talib at all but dam if it dont look odd seeing him in a blue jersey.

    Tom said it the best! Pretty much formulated common sense and intelligence into his sentence. Well said, couldnt agree more.
