Aqib Talib is one of the best cornerbacks and agitators in football.

In the first quarter of the Broncos-Raiders game on third down, he kept Michael Crabtree from picking up the conversion. Then Talib snatched his chain.

Talib even appeared to reenact the chain snatch on the sideline. That’s a 12 out of 10 on the disrespect scale. Talib was asked about the sequence after the game. In typical Talib fashion, he didn’t downplay it.
