They did their job, without any highlight reel moments. The lack of splash plays is why there are so many people who don't appreciate Ike Taylor's coverage skills. They would rather he got blown up half the time as long as he made some interceptions. Personally, I would rather see the team, (Troy and Harrison included), excel at the important things first.
Disagree. Turnovers are key in the NFL. Splash plays are important. Sacks, Fumbles, INT's are the most important things a defense can do. We sucked at forcing TO's last year and it cost us games.
