Catching the ball is the responsibility of the player.
Now, if you're questioning the "tackle the catch" mentality, that can be coaching less agressively which would lead to fewer INT's.

Tell me again how Lewis is better than Taylor is?
Eh... one bad game... like Denver in last year's play-offs.

Also, statistics can be misleading. In the second game, Cortez Allen intercepted a pass and forced two fumbles... and the defense only gave up 6 points... and the Steelers lost.

To clarify: Not saying Ike shoudl be cut, but I'm saying that Keenan has 10 yaers lef tin the tank; whereas, Ike has maybe 2 years left. There is no way that I let Keenan walk away. Otherwise, it's going to be draft a CB, draft another CB, draft another CB... as they have done ever since Deshea left. We have him right here... sign him & let's draft OTHER positions.

Ike was covering well in Denver. Tebow was putting those long balls right on the money. I agree though, I don't want to see Lewis go at this point.

By the way, back to the OP.

Ike will never get cut by this team.

Ike has restructured for them numerous times. More importantly, The Rooneys LOVE Ike. Dan seems Ike as a grandson. When Ike first had his baby, at practice, Dan noticed that Ike was tired. Ike mentioned the newborn,a nd Dan laughed and empathized... and dismissed him from practice, so that Ike could nap on the couch in Dan's office. Dan, meanwhile, worked in the cafeteria.

Again, there is NO WAY that The Rooneys would ever cut Ike Taylor.

Haha. I remember reading that. I agree, Ike is a big reason we've had so much success over the years, and other than missing the last few games this year has been completely dependable.

Who would truly want to cut Ike Taylor?! That would be like throwing the baby out with the bath water.

that picture is fantastic. It reminds me of a big reason for this teams success over the past decade. It was an away game at Miami in 04, the team spent extra time together at the hotel because of bad weather. That team won their next 15 games and after the season they looked back at that week as the time they came together as a team.

These players really enjoyed playing together, and the atmosphere is more like a family.

I never did hear the conclusion to the story-- what happened to Crezdon Butler?

A year or two ago (maybe longer-- I am getting old LOL), there was a lot of talk about this kid's potential. I recall him having a big pick in last preseason, and then, suddenly, heard nothing else about him?

If I'm not mistaken, I believe he relocated to the Land of Misfit Steelers (Arizona). I never heard anything more about him after that. If he's still there, somebody should warn him that the Bumble is coming to coach them next year.
