Ben needs to take off Ashleys thong too. QB slide, come on.

Ikes coverage is not because of harrison or troy. Ike is still the shut down corner on the team?

I was just about to make the same argument, almost verbatim, but I thought people would say I was an idiot - but for the record, I completely agree!

I sometimes tell the TV Ike sucks...but really, I think he's just average for the league. I expect he'd be the #2 guy on half the teams in the NFL. IMO, he's highly overpaid, but we had no better options to keep him from price gouging us.

As for Gay, I'm glad he's gone. Managing to finally have a season were he didn't single handedly lose us a game doesn't make him a solid back by any stretch. He was #2 to Ike, and Ike is #2 to most any starter in the league.

Ike has had some WTF moments, and actually I'm getting more angry about some of his bonehead penalties as of late than anything (not counting the awful scab refs terrible calls)

if a good to elite WR gives him a double move in space, he's screwed, as most CBs would be - WRs just have a huge advantage - I didn't want to believe that until recently - it really is ridiculous

this thread sucks.

atleast ike didnt sit out with a hold out or concussion like that little bitch revis.

namdi asomugha got burnt today for a TD. i guess he sucks as well?

the jets leading receiver was some no-name scrub j. kerley who had 2 catches and 67 yds. Santonio holmes had 3 catches for 28 yards and a td. sanchez wen almost 2 hours and 30 minutes in real time where he only completed a ball to a wr four times.

you clowns kill me.

Agreed, Tony.

Do you really expect a CB to never get beat? Like aforementioned, Asomugha got beat and got a PI penalty against Bal (at least 1 that I saw, maybe more), so what, he sucks? CB's have one of the toughest jobs, they make one hesitation or one wrong move and they get smoked.

Look at the level Ike was playing at towards the end of the game. He had Santonio furious, frustrated as hell because he was all over him and he couldn't catch a damn ball.

I don't think he's on the level of Revis and Asomugha, but the guy does a hell of a job 90% of the time.

I cant believe that people on this board are campaigning for William Gay. Probably the same guys posting how he sucked 2 years ago.

If Ike plays off you complain that he gives too much cusion............if he plays right in the shirt of the WR, you complain he takes stupid penalties. do us all a favor and go out for the highschool football team this year so you can try out the position for yourself.
