    Patriots acquired CB Aqib Talib from the Buccaneers for a 2013 fourth-round pick.

    thats a steal for a CB like that even though he is in legal trouble all the time

    seems like good value for the bucs, who were probally on course to releasing him at the end of the year

    Guy is a lunatic, but he's a very good corner. Potentially makes our games with them a little harder.

    Apparently if you want to play for the Patriots, all you have to do is act like an ******* long enough for your current team to trade you for peanuts. I bet this goes the way of Albert Haynesworth...

    And it's a bit easier to integrate a new CB into your defense 8 weeks into the season than it is to integrate a new WR into your offensive.

    Desperation, way to be classy Patriots. What a stark contrast, we are trying to rid ourselves of headaches, where the Patriots are welcoming it. But, I guess you can't win with choir boys in the NFL.

    I'm not afraid of the Patriots. Historically, it's been one or the other: HARRASS Brady and win, or give him time and he kills us. I think we will split with them. Talib is a head case. Not scared of him either. Jags got pretty good value. But This doesn't make me any more concerned about facing the Patsies than before.

    He's not that good. Very lazy and incosistent. Just like Vontae.

    Eh... he's one bad move away from a year long suspension, and he was struggling early in the year outside of the Tampa 2 defense. Could workout great for the Pats, but he's a Zone CB

    Prior to last game I would have said CB was a huge need for this year as of now...but Jimmy played well and so did Carroll..Marshall coming back should help as well..

    can never have enough good CBs. I don't know if there are any shut down guys we can get since it looks like we'll be drafting in the 2nd half of round 1 (though I do like Johnthan Banks) but we shouldn't rest on our laurels.

    The Pats secondary is at best mediocre (this is being very generous), even when healthy. A fourth rounder is cheap, even for a half-season rental. If the guy is at all an upgrade, it is a win for the Patriots.

    And an update: The Pats barely pull out a win against the Bills while Fitz has one of his best games ever against this terribad pass defense. Thank god Fitz had a brain fart at the end of the game and threw it directly to McCourty.
