I agree - the season obviously was lost when Chidi was not brought back to play on special teams

Then who is the answer??? Ike is a great corner who does not get the recognition he deserves.

thanks for taking it in the proper context... humor doesn't always come across on the board.

I think what your missing, is the difference between Ike Taylor the CB, and the system Ike plays in. Both CB's are primary run support.... playing containment to turn the run inside for our OLB's/MLB's to finish off. In order to do that, the CB has to first read the play, then react.

I believe they are the ONLY team that plays it in that way, which means that no other CB has the responsibility at the snap that a Steelers CB has.

I promise, I am not playing homer on this subject. Search my posts from last year and the off season. I was calling for Ike's head... and Deshea's. But this year, there is such a difference. What we are seeing right now is an issue of everyone wearing down, and a deeper question which I have asked before, is the zone blitz past its prime?

If Ike is hurt, McFadden needs to know his game, step up and play his role.

Gay replacing Ike? that's crazy. even if Ike is not good like you say( even though he is) he wouldn't be replaced by Gay who is right now a 3rd or nickel CB at max
