Re: Ike Taylor Sucks Pt2
I do think once Polamalu and Clark get to play an entire game together, the pass defense will improve tremendously. I do not think that said Polamalu will be anything close to what he was even two years ago.
I think, in his current state, he is a solid safety who will allow the rest of the secondary to be more comfortable in their roles in LeBeau's scheme and play well enough to hold it at least somewhat together, but not a dynamic playmaker making one handed interceptions and ridiculous tackles all over the field.
Ike sucks right now but at the same time I think it's a lot easier for him to be exposed with Mundy/Allen back there and Clark overwhelmed with the added responsibilities he takes on in Troy's absence.
