I think Blount has all the right intentions and he's a good dude, just isn't too intelligent. Talib has the talent and the mind for football, he just puts himself in the wrong places with the wrong people and won't let anyone try to tell him otherwise. Nnamdi would be the best thing that could ever happen to Talib cause then he would finally have somebody above him that could show him right from wrong. Think about it, Talib has probably been the best CB on every team he's ever been on. He'd actually have somebody on the team he'd HAVE to respect if we brought him in.

I think hes a good guy too. He just needs to learn to control his emotions a little better. Thats something a person can work on. Same with Talib as well. I think hes just a young kid finding his way. Take it from a young guy myself. Im noway near perfect, being young, theres so much to learn about and grow up from and honestly I dont think that really ever stops.

if he cant respect ronde, do you really believe he would respect asomugha?

Yeah - I don't think a 'co-worker' is going to change what Talib is doing...   

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Hard to argue that point.

When was Ronde ever better than Talib while he's been on the team?

I hear ya.   Best player on the team is not always the most respected.

I could easily see Talib having great respect for Nnamdi as he's one of the premier at his position right now. Ronde is a has been.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

I think the difference between Blount and Talib is that Blount seems like a nice guy, but has a temper problem. Talib seems like a thug A-hole with a temper problem. Plus, Blount's anger issues have been on the field (postgame and practice). Talib is out in public causing trouble.


The difference is one act's like a Man and uses his fists on others who arguably deserve it. The other is a child who uses guns.

Aso is considered the top of his trade, a very smart player, a leader by both choice and his peers.... and Talib has to be watching and his careers moves away fro his control... could be a good time for Talib to meet a person like Aso.

Panthers Monday Night game.....all I gotta say. Not only was he on the back end of his career, but Talib was already a superior player than him as a rookie. These young guys don't care what your past credentials are anymore, you gotta go out there and show it on the field for them to respect it.

I think most/all of you that don't want to spend the money on Nnamdi don't really watch too much football besides the Bucs. This isn't just your run of the mill guy that gets overpaid every summer. This is one of the greatest cornerbacks of all time, and we'll probably/definitely never get a chance to sign a CB as good as him EVER again. You wanna pass on the opportunity to be great so you can save some money and pick up a mediocre cornerback just for the sake of picking up a CB? All while we have the most cap room we'll ever have. Not trying to turn this into a Nnamdi topic....

Talib was better than Ronde the day he arrived here.

Ya, Talib has been the best CB on the roster since day 1 he got here. But I really doubt bringing in a CB better than him improves his problem, might even make him worse.
