The NFL has been reminding all players to be respectful in their comments toward each other. But Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor may not have received the memo.

Taylor said he’s still friends with ex-teammate Santonio Holmes, but that when Holmes is in a Jets uniform on Sunday, Taylor plans to put a hurting on him.

“I’m going to try to be as disrespectful as possible once we get between those white lines,” Taylor told the New York Post. “Friendship doesn’t enter into it then.”

Taylor also indicated that if he hurts Holmes in the process of being disrespectful, he won’t feel bad about it.

“I’m not going to hesitate to lay him out,” Taylor said. “No question at all. You know why? Because he ain’t going to hesitate to crack on me if he gets a chance.”

With those comments, Taylor ensured that the officials will be watching extra closely if he does get his chance to lay Holmes out.

How exactly is that " Trash talk " Maybe going back to school would help you. He's saying exactly what ALL
DB's sat, including Revis who said the same thing. Tke also said that he likes Holmes, and respects him. But, once the game starts, there are no friends. And he is right.

I think the league should back off a little, so he is talking trash a little bit, big deal. These are professionals, they know how to handle themselves when it comes to this sort of stuff.

Yeah, he likes to wheel his power whenever on many different fronts when it comes to the NFL.

Nice try.

But if you read the WHOLE story, you'll see that these guys really are good friends and Taylor's just messin' with 'Tone's head just as any two friends would do.

I don't read anything into this other than that.


PITTSBURGH — Pain is in the forecast for Santonio Holmes on Sunday.

So says Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor, who told The Post yesterday that he won’t hesitate to “lay out” his close friend in the AFC title game against the Jets if the right situation presents itself.

Taylor and Holmes, the former Steeler, are offseason workout partners and as tight as brothers, but Taylor said that friendship will be put on hold for three hours this weekend at Heinz Field.

Taylor’s chilling message: If that means hurting Holmes, then so be it.

SOME FRIEND!
Ike Taylor, who works out with Santonio Holmes in the offseason, said he won’t hesitate to do bodily harm to the Jets WR.

“I love him and that’s my boy, but when we get between those white lines, it’s a whole different deal,” Taylor said in an interview with The Post after practice.

“I’m going to try to be as disrespectful as possible once we get between those white lines,” the veteran Pittsburgh starter said. “Friendship doesn’t enter into it then.”

What must put Holmes and the Jets on notice is that the Steelers’ hard-hitting defense is known to back up hints of bodily harm.

Taylor, who was fined $10,000 by the NFL during the preseason for striking Giants wideout Hakeem Nicks in the head, is just one of several Pittsburgh defenders familiar with the league’s disciplinary department in recent years.

Linebacker James Harrison, in fact, is such a noted headhunter that the NFL has fined him four separate times this season alone for a total of $100,000, putting him on the verge of a suspension.

Taylor’s comments also probably won’t go over well with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in the wake of his recent efforts to cut down on unnecessarily violent hits.

But Taylor, who is among the team leaders in tackles and defies the usual cornerback reputation by being physical against the run, defiantly said he plans to offer his buddy no quarter.

Friendship only goes so far, it seems, when a chance to go to the Super Bowl is on the line.

“I’m not going to hesitate to lay him out,” Taylor said. “No question at all. You know why? Because he ain’t going to hesitate to crack on me if he gets a chance.”

Taylor, who became tight with Holmes during the wideout’s four seasons in Pittsburgh, will have to be careful carrying out that vow because hits on “defenseless receivers” are the league’s biggest point of emphasis this year.

The prospect of hearing from Goodell seemed to dawn on Taylor the longer he spoke. That might be what eventually prompted Taylor to say he might “come to a mutual agreement” with Holmes to hold up ever so slightly should either player get the chance at a kill shot.

“That’s a possibility,” Taylor said, smiling.

But on the whole, Taylor doesn’t sound like someone planning to let up on the player whose locker was practically next to his own for so many years.

Taylor also works out with Holmes in the offseason at Disney’s Wide World of Sports in Orlando, but the outspoken Steeler said he and Holmes don’t talk football during the season.

“I talked to ‘Tone’ [on Tuesday], but it was what we always talk about — ‘What you doing?’ Playing PlayStation, what you doing? ‘Playing PlayStation.’ No [on-field] matchups or anything like that. We just rap.”

It will stay that way until Sunday, when Holmes will morph into the green-and-white enemy for Taylor.

“It all changes between those white lines,” Taylor said.

Yeah, just some banter between two friends, and it will come down to as always, what happens in the actual game.

More than anything, Ike is sending a message that it is business first. Somehow I think Holmes understands this. Hell, sometimes you play harder when your competition is a brother.

Exactly both that they will not let their friendship get in the way of their ultimate goal of winning the game on Sunday. Once again the media taking some comments and blowing them out of proportion.

I think the Steelers would accept any fine given to them at this point as long as they are on the winning side of the ball.

Hit'em hard I say!!!

You step over that white line its about 2 things, putting some pain out there and winning.

I doubt Ike and Holmes will pull a Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan on the field. The way the league is attempting to crack down on trash talk is really horrible. I'm sure Ike wasn't meaning that he was gonna paralyze Bongtonio. C'Mon SON!!

I hardly think saying he would "lay him out" is the same as saying he would attempt to hurt him. Guys get hammered hard all the time in the NFL and bounce back up and keep going. Ever heard of a WR named Hines Ward? :wink02:

lol that ain't trash talk, he's just saying it's gonna be an ugly game. and most likely it will.

isn't that what all you jets fans are saying/been saying all along? when ike says the same thing it's 'trash talk'?

01-20-2011, 02:44 PM
What a joke . Laying people out it what this game is about.But if you say it out loud
your talking trash? This fricking league is getting ridiculous. Now what, if Ike
hurts him now your going to sue him right? Just let these guys do what they do.
And thats sceam , yell , threaten , hit , and fight to the death.

Or just change the name to Almost the NFL........:banging:

Dude, quit following him around and calling him (and other Jets fans) a troll. They're biased in favor of the Jets (of course), but they've all been pretty respectful. We're obviously not going to agree with all their opinions, but they're hardly trolling. If you don't like their opinions, and don't want to argue them rationally then just stay away from them.

He's said some pretty damn stupid things. I haven't called every Jets fan on here a troll, and not even close. But this one definitely is, so I call him out on it.


And I'm not following him around, he posts so much on here how could I not run into him?

He's just here for conversation about his team with someone other than Jets fans. Can't expect him, or others, to not be in favor of the Jets and their players. I honestly don't think he's said anything that outlandishly stupid or trollish...he's just excited for his team, like we all are.

Just knock it off is all I'm saying, we get the picture lol.

as a fan, you always feel better about playing a team that you already beat. I know it means nothing and honestly who a fan prefers his team play means nothing. i'm sure the jets could care less if it was balt or pitt. but as a fan you always feel better playing a team you already beat
