Aqib Talib admitted that he slammed Corey Brown down by his facemask during the Super Bowl on purpose. That is not really all that surprising.
It looked like it was done on purpose. It also followed a personal foul from Talib for barking in Brown's face. The surprising part is that Talib so freely admitting he pulled Brown down on purpose.
Who the fuck does that? Talib claims he was sending a message, via NESN:
“It was all good,” Talib assured. “It was B.S. flags. One was on our sidelines — the guy was talking on our sideline. One I just did on purpose, and I just had to show him. It’s probably going to be a fine, but hey, we’re world champs.”He had to "show" him. I'm not sure what Talib was showing Brown other than the fact that he's a dirty ass player. It's one thing to hit a guy as hard as you can, it's another to throw them down by their facemask on purpose.
