Default Ike Taylor

I need your help, fellow Steelers faithful. I really like the great plays and coverage that #24 is capable of, but he just cannot catch the profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilterin ball when it counts! Tippping the ball upward seems to be his MO. Where I need your help is talking me down! I'm looking for sensible reasons not to be pissed at Ike! Am I being too hard on him? He's a professional, but IMO it seems that a huge fundamental is missing from his cognitive process! Help me out!

Thank you in advance!

Those were two great plays of the many he made Sunday. Unlucky for us, but luck for the Colts, they were both tipped to Reggie Wayne. Wayne was shut down pretty nicely except for those two tipped balls he caught. Great skill by him to stay with it and catch it. Both guys are superb at their position. Ike is a great corner.

You know, when Dewayne Washington was in his prime, he was a really good CB I thought.

Never liked Scott. Taylor is way better than Scott was and I guess if he could catch he would be a WR. JUST KNOCK IT DOWN IKE!!!

Dewayne Washington is worse, actually he cost the Steelers the game in the playoff game against the Titans years back, cant recall how long ago, it was probably like in 2001?2002?, that roughing the kicker call...

the 2 balls were off the tops of his fingertips, its not like they went through his hands. just a tad bit too high too pull down.

in the earlier game with titans/bears there was almost the exact same play where c. finnegan tipped the out of reach ball up and chris hope intercepted it. it was a great play.

this time the ball just didnt bounce our way. i was impressed to how glued ike was to one of the best wr's backs.

Remember this:

1) Those who can catch the ball play WR
2) Those who can't play DB

This is exactly what I saw.

Ike made great plays to even get his fingers on the ball. He pretty much sold out on these chances falling to the ground afterwards. I thought he played very good overall. B+

We just weren't getting the breaks...bounces in this chase.
