There were a lot of awesome moments to take away from the Buccaneers 16-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, but one of the best moments was when Aqib Talib blocked a Panthers punt late in the game.
The defense was markedly improved from last year and guys that needed to improve their game dramatically began to do as much on Sunday. One of the guys that headline that list is Aqib Talib. From beating upcab drivers to getting involved in assault with a deadly weapon charge, Talib has been more of a problem than a solution on the field.
Aqib Talib is looking to finally have a good, full season for the Bucs this year. Last year made a big interception in the Bucs season opener, and he continued that trend by blocking a huge punt for Tampa this year. Hopefully, this is that start of something good and consistant for Talib in Tampa. It’s a contract year and if he wants to stick around in Tampa he’s got to prove his worth.
So far, so good.
