When the Bucs on Monday placed cornerback Aqib Talib on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury, it was more than just a routine transaction. Although it was rather apparent Talib might be headed to I.R. given his inability to play for most of the past three weeks, there’s a bigger context here.
Talib’s season-ending injury could be the first in a series of dominoes to fall that would leave the Tampa Bay secondary looking awfully different next season.

During Saturday’s game, I saw the cuts to Mark Dominik in the box with a set of binoculars, but hadn’t noticed he was wearing a coach’s headset. Apparently he was and some people have made a deal about it. The Times took a second to debunk it.
Dominik has always watched games from the box and wears a headset because he assists Raheem Morris with determining when to make replay...
At halftime of the Bucs 31-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Saturday night, NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders said the Bucs had quit on coach Raheem Morris.
At the time, Tampa Bay trailed 28-0, had only first down and had yielded 60 unanswered points dating back to the loss at Jacksonville Dec. 11.
But Bucs tackle Jeremy Trueblood disagrees with Prime Time's observation, noting...

It’s that time of year. My least favorite time of year, Christmas. The days of youthful excitement for the holiday have been replaced with the dred of cramped malls and in-laws. Although I ***** and moan this time of year I still appreciate and applaud those who do the extra things to make those less fortunate have a better holiday. PFT, ESPN, and others...
