Millers the sh!t: they are huddled up trying to spin it in a positive light. Give them time...They have been working on it for 3 weeks now.

Soon they will say he has only given up 200 yards to wr's in 5 games. Least they will forget to mention the 350 yards in penalties. The td's, the crucial tds in crunch time.

But hey, we should be supported as we don't want the soon to be gone Mendehal to get pissed off at the fans.

Keenan Lewis is obviously delusional.

and I agree that right now our secondary is terrible.

but I disagree that Troy being out doesn't make a difference, Troy is so much better than Ryan Mundy and Will Allen.

Well, if your quote is correct, Ike Taylor will not be with the Team next year, I gurantee you that! As a matter of fact, Casey Hampton, Larry Foote, and possibly James Harrison will not be back with the team next year. I'm going on record right now and say Troy and Mike Wallace might not be back as well.

And if Mike Tomlin doesn't get his head out of his A$$, he too might be on the hot seat. Going for a 54 yard FG with the way his defense played Thursday night? Are you kidding me? Going for a 4th down against the Eagles deep in your own territory? Granted, they made it, but if they hadn't made it, they could easily be 1-4 right now.

Dude, I totally agree with you; you can't stay at the top forever. The Steelers have had a nice run, this team needs some playmakers on Defense in the worst way. Those guys out there are as a whole, they are terrible!!!!!!!

Taylor isn't going anywhere. Because we sold our souls to cheat the salary cap and overpay so many "Stars", even if we cut Ike we'll still have to pay him like 4 mil for next year. They're not going to pay that kind of money and not have him doing something on field.

Right now Harrisson is one of the FEW Steelers playing 110%. So he may get a restructure, but if he can play solid D he isn;t going any place.

I disagree on Taylor's hit isn't the bad considering Taylors play. the 6million difference in a contract form IF we went via the FA market could be well spent.

I'm typically not in favor of dumping guys who have a $3.4 million dollar hit against the cap. But I believe Ike should have been cut after his performance last year in the playoffs. Look at kickers in the NFL, goalies in the NHL, relief pitchers in MLB. All can have very bad games at times. You gotta just cut them loose sometimes. I'm sure Ike can have a nice end to his career in another city. His time in the Burg was sealed after his dreadful performance last year.

Players don't get cut after ONE bad performance, especially considering he was one of the NFL's best EVERY game up until that point.

that playoff loss against Denver and Demaryius Thomas last season and this game against the Titans were two horrible performances by Ike Taylor. if he has any more games like those two I would think the Steelers will be hard-pressed to pay him $9 million next season.

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.
