You saw what happened to our secondary when Ike Taylor was out at the end of the Year right??? Cutting Taylor is a horrible idea, he's the only corner on our team that can shut down A.J. Green and other elite wide receivers.

I agree 100%. The Chargers and Cowboys games were disasters with Ike out of the lineup. Ike is probably the key player in the secondary at this point with Clark a close second. Ike gets burned once in a while (which corner doesn't) but his play over the years has been tremendous.

Andy Dalton shuts down AJ Green imo. Dalton has played well in his first two seasons but he has a long way to go as a player. Dalton is terrible against the Steelers.

The Steelers don't have a CB worth 8 million a year and that includes Taylor. Timmons led all Steelers with 3 ints last year, the CBs on this team are very replaceable because none of them are exceptional as a matter of fact during a few games last year they looked awful. Rivers,Romo and even the 3rd string QB for the Browns ate them alive. If Lewis decides to go elsewhere big f#*king deal,go out and find another

wasn't that the stretch where the starting CB's were injured?

Yes,but even with the starters in I didn't see anything worth 8mil a year. When you play a style of defense that depends on CBs playing "on an island" they need to be outstanding.... And they were not.

Lewis is one of the few players that played with heart this year, I'd give him 10 million a year for 20 years.

Lewis might have played with heart but that doesn't make him worthy of big money. This team pays a lot of its players way too much for what they produce

That was a joke, I do think we should find a way to keep him though. Pass protection has been one of our strong points. Besides I really like the look on his face when he plays, like he actually cares, ya know?

I would certainly say he is the least expendable of the all the UFAs.

Yes, yes it was. Ike didn't play the last 4 games of the season. According to casteeler this does not exempt Ike from culpability in the Steelers poor pass defense to end the season.

Lewis had a hip flexor that he suffered in I think the second Ravens game. Josh Victorian and Robert Golden were called into action as a last resort to close the season.

Please also keep in mind the Cowboys had the NFL's 3rd best passing attack (they put up a lot of yards on a lot of teams) and the Chargers only scored one touchdown on a drive they started in their own territory (the rest of their points came off turnovers and drives started in Steelers territory).
