Default Re: Ike Taylor breaks thumb; should be OK for opener

I do think Ike is overrated by a lot of Steelers fans, but he is good enough to be a #1 CB. Not a GREAT #1 CB, not pro bowl caliber, probably not top 10, but he's not a total scrub either. There are a lot of teams out there with WAY worse starting CBs; not everybody has a Nnamdi or Revis. Saying he should be a #3 is ridiculous. Only teams he'd be a #3 on are the Eagles, maybe the Packers, and MAYBE the Jets (but he would still probably be a #2 there), and thats only because theyre all stacked at the position.

Now, saying Bryant Mcfadden isn't anywhere near being good enough to be a #2 is another story...
