Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib NFC Defensive Player Of The Week

Discussion in 'Tampa Bay Buccaneers' started by BigBlueBruiser, Nov 3, 2010.

  1. Tampa Bay cornerback Aqib Talib was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his effort against the Arizona Cardinals. Talib had two interceptions, one that he returned for a touchdown and another that ended the Cardinals’ final threat, in a 38-35 win by Tampa Bay. His five interceptions are second in the NFL. It is the first time a Buc has won the honor since Ronde Barber captured the award in Week 12 of the 2008 season.

    yep, he's still pretty erratic and a big risk-taker. i think he's slowly getting better and more polished as time goes by though, so he could eventually turn out to be the top 5 corner the bucs were hoping for when they drafted him.

    I agree, he has elite corner potential. His on the ball skills are difficult to match, but his aggressiveness is a gift and a curse. Sometimes he's so concerned with making the splash play that he forgets a knockdown is just as valuable on 3rd down.

    A little polish and he will be a great one.

    Some of those long balls this year were caused by a safety misread.
