Not sure why when the Pats make moves like this, people get excited.

People stated they were geniuses when they traded low picks for Haynesworth and Chad....how did that work out?

This is relatively low risk so its no big deal, but lets hold off before saying this was a smart move just because its the Pats.

Because considering past success with the likes of Rodney Harrison, Corey Dillon, and Randy Moss, we have at least broke even with deals such as this one.

This seems like a great deal for the Pats. They now have a young and athletic cornerback that will do great things in their secondary, assuming he stays out of trouble.

Well you can't really fault the Lions for staying away from Talib. They've goten a lot of attention for the legal troubles that various players on the team have had. Trading for another troubled player really doesn't send the message that they want to be sending to the rest of the locker room in that regard.

The Pats can do it because they have what is generally considered to be a tight ship and have a history of turning these types of players around.

Problem is we have to coach him up, and the Patriots have shown little to no ability to develop defensive backs.

NFL policy is that suspensions are for games, not bye weeks. So new Patriots CB Aqib Talib is not eligible to play until Nov. 18 vs. Indy.

How have you broke even if he hasn't played for you yet?

This was my first thought when I heard the trade. People gunna be peein they pants "ZOMG BB IZ BEST GM EVAR!!!!!!@11#!! STEEL!!!!" and then Talib will get arrested 8 more times and will get cut and nobody will say a word. If a team like the Dolphins/Bills/Cardinals/Raiders ect made this exact same trade those same people would say "TROLOLOLOL, They is so desperation it aint even bee funny."

Those deals were made 8+ years ago. Lately, these deals have not been panning out. It's very up in the air if this one will. Talib is a FA at year's end and can't stay out of trouble.

I'll say this... Haynesworth and Chad Ochocinco didn't flop because the Pats were somehow unable to keep them in line. Hell, Ocho was falling over himself trying to be successful. They didn't work out because the two are simply bad players at this point.

Chalk that up to bad homework by the Pats FO, but it doesn't say the Pats "can't handle malcontents" or something like that - if Corey Dillon showed up tomorrow he'd do fine. Hope this reflects some good hw.

Good trade for the Bucs. TBD for the Patriots. Haven't been impressed with Talib lately, but if the Patriots can turn him around then it's a good deal for them as well...

Good luck Pats fans. At his absolute best he's wildly inconsistent, and for the past year and a half or so he's just been flat out awful for the most part. Top ten talent, ten cent head. I expect he'll find it in himself to keep his nose clean for the last half of the season, so as long as you don't re-sign him that shouldn't be a huge concern. If you do though, the moment he feels even slightly comfortable he will go out of his way to find new and skull-numbingly stupid ways to burn you.

Because even if the deal turns out bad, our track record with troubled vets would still be good.
