Default Ike Taylor

So how about Ike Taylors play overall this season?
48 solid tackles with 2 INT's and a 95% improvement from last year.
I remember this time last year he was sitting on the bench for horrific playing and to see this kid bounce back is amazing and shows the true heart of his workouts and training in off season!

I am glad to see Ike back to form. I think Cowher blamed him a little too much for our secondary problems last year, IMHO! He should have about four or five INT's for the year, but he dropped a few. I guess that is why he is on D. But overall, glad he is back playing at the level that we know that he can!

Ike is awesome, only thing is, he has hands of steel....don't really want those when you're going up for a pick.

Noticed him trying to hit the ball away, with both hands back over his head, rather than allow the receiver any chance of catching the ball. I was impressed by his recognition of knocking that ball away, instead of trying to catch it himself as well.

The less I hear his name during the game, the more impressed with his coverage I become. A much better year thus far.

He still has the best INT we have had in recent memory though...in Super Bowl XL.

Props to Ike for getting his head into the game and earning back his starting position.

Ike was benched this time last season because he was the scapegoat. A great player and a great guy. I got my Super Bowl XL team picture with his signature proudly as the focul point of my desk :D

"i like ike" is becoming a top corner, i probably shouldnt say that because that is what analyst were saying in 2005 when he first broke out.
