Report: Aqib Talib likely to be suspended four games (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/08/26/report-aqib-talib-likely-to-be-suspended-four-games/)

Citing three sources familiar with the situation, Yahoo! Sports’ Jason Cole reports that Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4640/aqib-talib) “can expect (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=jc-cole_buccaneers_josh_freeman_082511)” a four-game NFL suspension in connection with his alleged role in a March 21 shooting.

Seems like the standard suspension, Buccaneers might have a hard time with the passing attacks of Atlanta in week 3 and Indianapolis (assuming Peyton returns by then) in week 4.

Don't forget week 1, we play Detroit.

Last year when we played Detroit with out Aqib Talib, Calvin Johnson had 150+ yards recieving :(

Goodell should wait till Talib goes to trial in March, and see the outcome first, charges might get dropped who knows.

Goodell should wait until the trial anyway, and that's what he's doing. Fair enough.

This is just ridiculous. He's a thug who assaults people with guns. This should be a 6 games suspension *minimum*. Terrelle Pryor sells some game jerseys for tattoos and he gets suspended for 5 games and this thug gets off scot free?

What a joke. Hopefully, the Bucs will probably lose more than 8 games this year anyway.

I agree that he should face punishment, but there has been more to the case than what the original story was reported.

Apparently, the thug who beat his sister had a weapon and was trespassing, and Talib came to the defense of his sister.

Should he be punished? Yes, eventually and repeat offenders, he'd get a 4 game suspension and I'll agree with that next year.

However, it wouldn't be right for Goodell to suspend Talib when he let about a dozen other players who violted the conduct policy during the lockout get away without punishment.

Should he be suspended? Yes, but not if every other player gets away with there actions.

No, it was her first offense. Pretty sure Goodell will deal with here next time.

I don't agree at all with the Pryor suspension either.

Goodell's "excuse" is that he violated what the Supplemental Draft is all about, meaning you can't leave school because you're suspended to go and play in the NFL.

I don't get it either, but why not? He's elligible to play in the NFL after having 3 years of College experience and if he wasn't going to play in 2011 for the Buckeyes because he'd be ruled ineligible, then why not go to the NFL?

Goodell has turned the NFL into a league of pussies. I thought football was a physical sport?
