[QUOTE=realdeal;1214644]Ike Taylor is the most overrated CB in the NFL!! I have never seen a CB with butter fingers like Ike. Does he not practice catching balls? He couldn't catch a ball if his life depended on it.

BTW, It was nice having you on our team Troy and Ryan. This is your last year with the team!! :([/QUOTE




In practice, he actually practices missing balls. Shows, doesn't it?

It's really not that hard to understand. People are now acting willfully ignorant or deflecting through projection. Again, a simple google of the topic will begin your education process. Why not be willing to say to yourself, "Maybe there is something here I didn't know about?" That's what intellectually curious people do. Then you won't continue to come off as an oaf.
What a dose of haughty you dished out.

You are educated and classy. Others are ignorant to YOUR truth. We all need to be further educated....but not you.

And please apply your closing question to yourself.....maybe there is a thing or two you don't know.

Let's forget all this lazy race crap!! Let's get back to the fact that Ike Taylor is not the player most Steeler fans and the media believe he is.

1. He is not great!!
2. He is not a "shut down" corner
3. He is just an average CB who does not intercept balls thrown directly at his chest!

I'm not sure how how got this rep, but Ike has never been "great." He is just an average Cb who has looked good because our front seven (for the most part) have pressured the Qb enough to make him look good.
Go Steelers!!

ike has been a shutdown corner for us since day one! he cannot catch a ball to save his life but he is solid! if you pay attention to the plays he is supposed to have safety support over the top on a lot of the plays where opposing WR's beat him. either troy or clark misread the play and ike gets the blame. im not saying he is perfect but if you don't recognize that he is one of the best in the game then you are clearly mistaken! it doesn't help him either when lebeau makes him play 25 yards off of the receiver! just asking for trouble!

it's been explained how the word lazy has been used over the past to put down minorities. It's not trolling, and it is surprising to me that anybody in the USA hadn't heard that word used that way. Either way I think it should be dropped now because that probably wasn't the original posters intent.

Either way Ike rules!

yeah, don't you just love the way some posters are so much more educated and smarter than the rest of us poor ignorant posters?

I'm not assuming anything. You miss the point…its not that its owned by any group…its not that it represents any kind of reality…it's that the language of "the lazy black man" has a long history of use by racists in this country. This isn't an opinion, it's not MY truth…its an historical fact.

If you don't know the answer to that question then you make my point. Rather than act incredulous…do a little of your own research. Answer your own question for yourself by investigating. Ask your black friends to explain it to you, google the question, read a history book detailing the use of language as a form racial discrimination. Rather than take the "this is ridiculous" path…have a little humility and intellectual curiosity. How can anyone claim the term "lazy" as being racist? Good question. There is a plethora of information available to answer that question which you could find without a ton of effort. I hope you do.
