I think the usual suspect Ike apologists "absence" proves they're on board now.

The Steelers will probably get 11 picks this year. They need to draft at least 3 CB's. Two of them need to be ready to play day 1.

ike has fallen off, but i can guarantee that gay isn't the top corner over ike. we seen what happened before when gay was covering torrey smith a few years back, it wasn't pretty.

Notice how Ike never looks at the ball when it is thrown, he only looks at his opponent then tries to make a play after the ball is caught. As a CB, it's hard to be successful if you never lay eyes on the ball...

yet hes been doing that his entire career. and hes also been successful his entire career.

hes playing no more poorly than troy or clark (and has actually out played the latter since theyve been together), but ike is the one with a 17 page thread. smh

Nearly every team has an Ike Taylor at CB - a solid and capable NFL starter. For some teams, he'd be their #1 CB, for others he'd be #2 - a valuable player in either case..

Ike Taylor is our Ike Taylor, and he's our #1 CB.

I love Ike. He's been a staple of our defense for years and honestly his play is dropping off but he's getting older now. There are times when I think the scheming really isn't helping him out, and that Clark and Troy have left him out to dry, but as of late he's getting burned 1v1 and he's got to step up his game. You can't have help all the time. Sometimes you've got to be able to hold your own. I can say in complete honesty that I think William Gay has outplayed Ike Taylor this season. Now some will undoubtedly start blasting me with the argument that Gay doesn't cover the talent that Ike does but Gay has been much more sound in his 1v1 match ups and SO many people in this fanbase were so quick to say that Gay sucked and were ready to crucify the guy during the Preseason. So that's why I'd say that Gay has outplayed Ike.

Taylor talks about swagger, he needs to get his swagger back.

Taylor Never Ever has Help , and when he thinks he does that person bites on something else and yes they leave Ike out to dry , ala the Ravens Game on the 1st play , at least my thinking as nobody knows the actual play call but I think Will Allen was supposed to have the deep middle and you see him biting on an underneath route ... of course only the players/coaches know the actual play call

Ike plays everyone 1v1 with no help anywhere so when he does get burnt it looks worst but he's the reason Troy and Clark can have all those tackles because unlike some/most safeties they come up quick and do kind of whatever they want , only reason that is is because Ike can play anybody 1v1 and wins more often then not

just my 2 cents

I agree with points but he hasn't been as sound 1v1 as he has been in the past. I honestly think he's lost a step. I sincerely hope he's just in a random slump and finishes the season strong.

Me too . Ike is my favorite player and you don't understand how much I hear it from all my family (all Steelers Fans) and Friends how much he sucks ... lol I get defensive on Ike ... seems like so many ppl Hate him

But yeah I agree , he may have lost a step and he defintely can't catch so save his life
