Yeah, because all of the true "shutdown" corners in the NFL never had a suck-ass game...

boo freaking hoo.

Not sure have they had a suck ass game when it counted most? I mean like Ikes suck ass game, the one where a C level QB and a B level WR schooled the shutdown corner over and over.

I dont keep stats on other teams, just mine unless we are smoking them. But using that scenario, might be a tough one to show. I'm not talking Brady or Manning and Wayne and Welker. Im talking Tebow and the Thomas.

Again, having a suck ass game happens, man up, take the Mic and say it. Just like Ben does, shoulder the blame. Dont let your other team mates answer questions. That is what pissed me off the most. I agree suck ass games happen, although to "shutdown" corners it shouldnt happened with a C QB and B WR. But it did. Than man up answer every question, shoulder the blame. He didnt, he wussied out.

I'm pretty sure Thomas only caught 3 passes. Also, shit happens. Ike Taylor's shouldered the blame plenty.

Stevie Johnson gave Revis a rough day this year and he is the only "True" Shutdown corner in the NFL......everyone has a bad game.

Would you rather have William Gay be the #1 corner on the team?? I know I dont im kinda glad there is a big chance he will not be back.

People like Revis and Champ Bailey get recognition based purely on their name. That's why they make it to the Pro-Bowl, but do they make it to the SuperBowl?

Ike Taylor is one of the better CB's in the league today.

Ike is a very good (and occasionally great) corner.

He had a bad game . . . we had a bad game . . . the defensive gameplan SUCKED . . . Ike and the defense in general underestimated our opponent and we got burned.

Ike is not solely to blame. He had a bad game . . . That's it.

Some people need to calm the F down.. Ike was one of the best corners in the league all season and he just had a horrible game against Denver. Sh*t happens.
