Sunday’s action for Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib didn’t end with the Bucs’ loss to the Ravens.

According to multiple writers for the Bucs, Talib and an official yelled at each other after the game, with obscenities flying in both directions. Talib was apparently upset with a pass interference call against teammate Myron Lewis.

Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times said the official told Talib “you played like -----".

According to Rick Stroud of the same paper, Talib responded “I’ll (hit) you in your b---- a-- mouth.”

Talib did not speak to reporters after the game, but we suspect he may hear from the NFL soon enough. The official in question may as well.
