Aqib Talib’s Suspension Guarantees He Won’t Be A Buc Next Year
This one isn’t really shocking, is it?
When you found out that the NFL has suspended Aqib Talib for the next four games, it didn’t really surprise us, did it?
Talib has been nothing more than a walking, talking disaster since Bruce Allen made the lame decision to draft this bum. It was a mistake then and the mistake has grown and festered into an unsightly sore at One Buccaneer Place.
Now they tell us Talib has taken a banned substance. And there’s something funny about telling us that he took an Adderall pill. It’s a prescription drug and Talib didn’t have a prescription. Talib, who has been given second, third and fourth chances by this franchise said he “made a mistake.” It seems that’s his life’s manta. He makes mistakes. He makes too many off the field and makes more than his share on the field.
Talib is little more than an over-rated pain in the butt.
After Raheem Morris became the enabler for Talib, he took full advantage of the situation. He’s cussed out officials on the field, he’s cussed out Morris in public, in a hotel lobby, he’s punched a cab driver and the list goes on, all the way back to his college days. He got in a fight at the NFL’s rookie symposium, he once tried to hit a teammate with a wild swing of his helmet, missed his intended target then nailed another unsuspecting teammate. He missed his target and he keeps missing the right mark, not only as a football player, but as a man.
Trouble doesn’t follow Aqib Talib, it is his middle name. Now this.
Talib’s gone for four games which leaves the Bucs in a real lurch. They’re already thin at the corner position. Thank goodness E.J. Biggers is back from his foot injury. Anthony Gaitor has gone to injured reserve and Talib’s gone home for a while.
It will be interesting to see how the no-nonsense Greg Schiano handles this pure nonsense. It was Schiano who gave Talib a clean slate and told us how Talib was a model citizen during training camp.
Talib hadn’t been in any trouble this season and he didn’t even get in trouble over the bye week, or did he?
The league never tells what a player has been banned for.
Adderall? It’s probably a safe bet that Talib can’t spell Adderall if you spotted him an “a” and two “ds.”
It’s not like this guy has been an all-world performer. He finished the Giants game looking like a piece of burnt toast.
Now he simply burned the organization and his teammates, who typically stood behind him.
Biggers will start today and hopefully, he can play well.
As for Talib, this will no doubt guarantee that he won’t be here next year.
And that’s a good thing.
