Hovan rips former Buc teammate, Talib

C. Hovan apparently is not a fan of A. Talib (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

You and I might think it’s utterly ridiculous if the Buccaneers let the off-the-field-challenged Aqib Talib return for yet another chance at playing in the NFL – of course, we’d also say that was simply the reality for one of the most talented cornerbacks in the NFC – but it sounds like former Tampa Bay and current Rams DT Chris Hovan is outraged by the matter.

On Thursday afternoon, he did a radio spot with WQYK (via JoeBucsFan.com ), and he let loose.

A sampling of the transcript:

Chris Hovan: How many strikes does Aqib get? I mean, really? He beats up a taxi driver. He beats — I saw what he did to Torrie Cox by hitting him in the head with a helmet. I have never seen that before in my 15-20 years of playing football.

J.P. Peterson: He didn’t do it on purpose…

Hovan: Yes he did.

J.P.: You think he did?

Hovan: Yes he did. He took his helmet off and he whacked him over the bridge of the nose. He knew what he was doing. He has been given too much leeway from Raheem Morris because, I guess, Coach Morris has favoritism towards him because he played defensive back. Again, they are giving this young man way too much leeway. Any other individual would have been cut way before this. But Aqib has so much talent — his talent goes through the ceiling. But you can’t keep having these offseason issues and you can’t keep covering for this kid. They are saying it’s OK for what he is doing and he just pistol whipped somebody in Texas. I mean, how many times does ownership and management let this kid get off?

Easy, you say something against a player who is not white...you are a racist--even if it is the truth.  Talib is a thug on his best day!  Dungy uses his "religion" as a platform to judge everyone except those he chooses to "save" from their own demons--so he can be praised by the media.  Maybe Dungy should run for president...at least he would know how to use the showcase the opportunity.

Yes more white players are needed.....Im just giving you the obvious answer you wanted to hear.....Racist ???


No, more good players are needed who actually act and perform as professionals, not thugs.

CBS.com is reporting the Bucs will release Talib. If so, they made the right move. Talib is a low-life punk. Until he addresses his additions and weaknesses, he doesn't deserve to play in the NFL. If he re-dedicates himself and shows he's changed, then he should be allowed to return with major constraints.

Yes get more white players and uncle toms it works for Coach K and Duke they win championships without ghetto thugs is this what the baiters want to hear so they can play the race card. It doesn't matter black or white a punk is a punk. And their is reverse racism in football and basketball they have the Rooney rule to make sure a black candidate is considered for jobs lets have a Rex Ryan rule where a white player is considered for every position and the Bucs who used to be my favorite team under Dungy are racists Morris would get rid of every white player on the team if he could find a black field goal kicker.

We shall see if the Buccaneers draft any white players in this year's draft.... my guess is they wont.
