Nobody was gonna trade more than a 4th for him. A lot of people were saying we might as well cut him. I'm happy we were able to get something for him.

Totally agree!

Glad we got a pick for him as well.

Glad he isn't a Buc.

I've seen Talib in a few NE games.  IMO, he looks like the same player.  He will get burned for a deep TD and then make a great play.

Not much has changed in that regard.  My feelings about the trade are still the same.  It was risky to sign Talib to a big, long-term contract.

You have to judge situations like that in the "here and now."  Talib did not deserve a long term contract from Tampa Bay.  The team did the right thing by not re-signing him.

Hopefully, the Bucs use the extra pick gained to grab a solid player to add to the roster.

I disagree, he's been playing with a lot more fire. He still gives up too many catches to consider him an elite player. However, all of the catches last game were heavily contested by him. The only time I've seen him burnt was in his first game with the Pats. Otherwise he has looked like a borderline pro-bowler.

Contract years tend to bring out the best is some players.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

I never questioned his "fire."   That was one thing I actually liked about Talib's game.  I felt like he always tried but he'd give up some big catches that hurt.  He did make some dynamite plays too. 
He will have his hands full vs the Ravens.  I'm curious to see if he can keep those WR's from getting loose.  He'll probably draw Smith, right?

Or Boldin.   They are both a handful.

I don't know, earlier in the season for us he didn't play with the same motivation that he has right now.

Oh no doubt!  Either way, Talib gets a thorough workout.

If New England wins the SB and he plays decent, some team will throw a boatload of cash at him. He'll chase the money. Lawyers don't come cheap, and he needs to keep one on speed dial. Addition by subtraction works for me.

    IMO, a trade that was good for BOTH teams. He's made the Patriots better than they were for this season, and we got something for a guy we apparently did NOT want to re-sign after this season. Win-win. It will be interesting to see if Patriots re-sign him, as their current FO is NOT known for handing out big $$$ to CBs...

Never. I'd rather go 0-16 next season than have Talib back on this team.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Talib really became a problem under Raheem.    Raheem was just too buddy buddy with the guys.
