Sometimes the truth hurts.. Love your spelling by the way. And to be quite honest, you asked for it by posting an "I Hate Ike" thread. What did you expect? Don't expect rose petals at your feet when you dog our best CB during SuperBowl week.

I like Ike, but Fitzgerald is a different type of receiver altogether than those standouts that he's shut down. What stands out about Fitzgerald is his timing on going up for the ball. That's always been one of Ike's soft spots. I'd be tempted to put McFadden )with help from Clark) on Fitzgerald, and Ike on Boldin, where Ike's coverage skills could come into better use.

The big thing here is to remember that Fitzgerald will make his catches. We just need to take away the YAC. that's where they've been most dangerous.

Come on people. Ike covers the best receiver on every team week in and week out. They played many teams with great receivers this year and he has shut them down. Fitzgerald is a great player but isn't the fastest receiver or even close. He can out jump you but if you don't give him the space to make an adjustment on the ball he isn't as effective.

hometowngal
Then you aren't a fan of the TEAM. Plain and simple.
that's bull
steeler mailbox , 50" steeler emblem on the garage for all naysayers to see
steeler stuff althrough the house been a fan since I can remember
probably longer tthan most of the punks on here.



I'd of painted the house Black and Gold but the wife said no!
Why not calm down and stop calling folks PUNKS and realize that your football knowledge is NOT all knowing. Ike has done a DAMN good job this year! i think it is funny as hell you paint a bulleye on yourself and cant understand why folks are upset at you! also realize there are some fans here that have replied to your post that have alot of time cheering for the Black and gold! So come down off your pedestal and join us!

Calling people fools is wrong especially when you are playing the part of court jester! It is almost like your opinion should over ride all of ours cause you feel we havent been fans as long as you! personally i have been a steelers fan for 3 decades and i am sure some surpass my time as a fan! so lets agree they are the greatest football team ever and leave it at that! they are inthe superbowl after all lets enjoy it!

HERE WE GO STEELRS HERE WE GO!!!!!

Ike has a coming out party in just a few days. I'm happy to be one of the guys that will be able to say "Toldya so!" to the haters.

If we lose it will because of him.
Fitzgerald /taylor coverage does not make me feel comfortable at all

I'm not saying Ike isn't great. It's a question of matchups. Larry is a different type of receiver than the others Ike's faced. Whether Ike covers him or not, I think Fitzgerald's good for 6-8 catches. I'd rather have Ike keeping Boldin from adding on an additional 8-10 catches. If we can limit the Cards to just being Fitzgerald and Warner, and stop Fitzgeralds YAC, then we've won. In order to do that, Boldin needs to be stopped. Ike's the best man for that job.

Jesus, let's keep this in perspective! Fitz is not 8 feet tall and doesn't run a 2.5 40. Ike isn't 5'4" and slow.

Ike has this. We're good.
