Default Re: Ike Taylor's future with Pittsburgh Steelers

Im sure he was being a little biased but if Ike could catch he would have been a household name. Last year was the worst year that he has had, but to say that every team has an Ike Taylor is a stretch. I hope that they draft his replacement this year hopefully Gilbert or Dennard in the 1st or someone in the 2nd. They will draft 2 corners I hope that one is Jean Baptiste or McGill.
I'm sorry, but you greatly overrate Ike. He's simply not a legitimate #1 CB, and he never has been. He's an average NFL starting CB with poor hands. Just because he's wearing Black and Gold doesn't mean that we need to close our eyes.

The black and gold ostrich of rebuilding denial.
