My brother and I were having a debate on the Talib trade a few days ago and I thought that it was a terrible trade even with Talib's character flaws and all. He said that Talib was garbage and that we didn't need him. I know Talib wasn't playing the best of Buc ball before the suspension, but I knew he needed time to gel in our new defensive schemes. When I first received the news of the trade I must admit I was a little distraught looking at our remaining CBs and depth. I believe that Talib is a talented CB and has shown up on occasion. His inconsistency must be worked on but I still felt he was the best CB we had.
Our pass defense has been unacceptable and I believe our defense cannot afford any mistakes to keep it close with a quality or elite offense. Would our defense be just as bad with Talib? I mean could we have kept and still used him instead of giving him up, and a 7th round pick for a 4th?
After Sunday's game and his debut with the Patriots, Talib managed a pick 6, 6 tackles and 2 assist. That was his first game, and I saw flashes of the good and bad Talib. What do you guys think? Please leave comments and Vote. This is my first Fan Post.
