Default Ike looked lost

How can Ike Taylor, Our best CB, play get taken to school by an old vet receiver who was retired at the beginning of training camp? To give up a TD, a long no-call pass interference that would have resulted in a 1st and 10 at the one yard line, and then later a double penalty on the same play? And he's our best guy? Was he getting beat by Mason's speed? That can't be it....Maybe Mason is crafty, he's been in the league a long time, but Ike's gotta get his game up. Opposing QB's are already looking to throw towards Gay first, but last night Ike didn't look any better, perhaps worse.

I agree Ike looked lost or maybe even just plain BAD!

Still love that guy though and hope he steps it up for the Raiders game(and rest of the season) because we need him to if we wanna win, the Raiders shouldnt be a problem though=)

Our whole secondary looked lost. William Gay looked horrific. And Clark didn't have his best game. On that long toss to Mason it seemed if he woulda just looked up to see where the ball was he woulda had a shot at an interception.

We need Troy back.. badly

While I would never pin a loss on just one guy, Ike was horrible last week against the Chiefs and was brutal last night. William Gay? I still don't see why we kept this guy.

I agree - it looks like we will need to address these secondary issues in the next draft. Our DB's are getting exposed almost on a weekly basis, and it's a shame because the rest of this team (except the Special Teams) is performing at a high level.

It would be nice to know how Keenan Lewis and Joe Burnett project before we go spending draft picks on CBs that could be better spent in other areas.

The broadcast reminded us of an interesting stat last night.... Troy has 3 picks this season, the most on the team, and has missed 6 games. Now THAT"S unacceptable.
Ike usually holds his own.... I submit he just had a bad game....

You might be right about a "shot" at an interception. We all know he wouldn't catch it.
Our entire secondary played a sloppy game. Poor coverage,poor tackling,just an all out poor performance.
