    Talib was enough of a difference, that when he got injured (a hamstring injury – no matter how slight, is a serious thing – especially for a DB/CB) the Pats’ secondary looked like swiss cheese. He is a solid DB (though a bit injury-prone). The Pats need someone of his ilk (x2?) in that motley crew called the Pats’ secondary.

  4. Derek Lee Says:

    They are 200% better with Talib on the field. They clearly fell apart once he left the game. What are you talking about?

  5. Chrisindanvers Says:

    Good player, but more importantly, led by a smart agent. Doesn’t suggest that he plans to come back, but he does hint that he wants to.

    Overall, can’t help but notice that he made an impact on the field. AFC Championship alone proves this. If he gets with the program and wants to stick around, I say go for it. Was a solid player, kept himself out of trouble, and said the right things.

    I know Chris Price doesn’t see him coming back, but not sure why. Patriots have done this with similar players before.

    Aqib, Sign a contract with the Patriots and let’s finish the job next season. A healthy Patriot team (with some player adjustments) CAN win a Super Bowl.

    phoney, he quit on us.  screw

    That hamstring you pulled, Talib.  You could have prevented that by drinking a lot of fluid (water) 1 hour before the game.  Talib = Soft.

    Dr. Gill did as good a job getting Talib ready for the second half as he did determining when Gronk was ready to return. New team doctor, please.

    Talib is less injury prone than 90% of the Pats defense.  The main difference is that he can play.  Not a shut down corner but fast, strong, and aggressive (i.e. he can get within 3 yards of receivers, versus other Pats DB’s).  Hopefully he truely has a smart agent who knows that being in NE can help someone with a mixed resume.

    keep aqib dumb arrington and cole.

  12. Titletown1 Says:

    There are 47 free agent DBs this offseason.  Shop around. Talib may be a little too much on the delicate deva side.

    Talib is the best cover corner the Pats have had since Ty
    Law. He doesn’t shy away from taking the other team’s number 1 receiver in man
    coverage. Hopefully the Pats will try to sign him and he, along with Dennard,
    can both having a full training camps and will comprise a solid 1-2 set of
    corners. Consistent CB and Safety players are a must in the NFL. McCourty is
    solid at safety but Gregory is too inconsistent, he constantly makes mistakes
    when he undercuts routes and he can’t tackle. Although I like Chung’s aggressiveness,
    he can’t stay healthy. The best thing about the defense is they are young, aggressive
    and can improve if they stay together.

    at least the Pats can say they had ONE good corner in the last few years but only for a couple months.
