Buccaneers.com provides a good collection of quotes from Head Coach Jon Gruden about 1st Round Draft Pick CB Aqib Talib:
Gruden on Talib the person:
Defensive Coordinator Monte Kiffin on Talib's ability to start:
Those are some great quotes. The more and more I read about Talib, the more I like him. If you're Phillip Buchanon you have to be a little worried. I mean this smells exactly like the Will Allen - Tanard Jackson competition last season at safety and we know who won that battle and rightfully so. It's a great problem to have. Obviously the competition is between Talib and Buchanon and it appears Eugene Wilson will be used as a tweener, a go between two positions type character. I like that. Thats a nice young secondary should Talib catch on: Jermaine Phillips, Tanard Jackson, and Aqib Talib.. We also have Sabby Piscitelli waiting in the wings. Hopefully these cats learn from the best in Ronde Barber.
