Default Re: Questioning Ike?????

Ike was asked to do something no Steeler since Woodson was, and he not only pulled it off, for the most part he excelled at it.

Ike was a "shadow back", meaning he didn't play just RCB or LCB, but he lined up against the best WR the opposing team had to offer, no matter where that guy lined up. To even suggest that a small college product picked up in the 4th round CAN be overrated is a little odd.

Does anyone know that Ike was an offensive player in College? He was moved to DB in his Senior year, I believe.

When presented with the facts, I'd say Ike is probably still underrated, even considering all the accolades he's receiving now...
