Hey, football players get into fights. It happens. It’s a physical game and tempers run high. But it would be easier to excuse Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib if he hadn’t swung his helmet like a weapon. And it would be even easier to excuse him if he hadn’t smashed the wrong player in the face.
Talib got into a scuffle with tackle Donald Penn during Tampa Bay’s voluntary workouts yesterday. Veteran Torrie Cox made the mistake of trying to break up their fight, and was rewarded with a helmet to the face for his troubles.
Did I mention this isn’t the first time this has happened to Talib?
