No one is talking about Ike Taylor. As much as I love him as a Steeler and a player, number 24 looks done. How else do you explain his playoff collapse against the worst pass attack in the NFL? Taylor was smoked three times by a rookie receiver and a quarterback that couldn't throw. I don't know how that plays psychologically, but alot of teams will be saying throw at Taylor. See 24 on the field, that's your go to corner. Even if you throw a lousy pass, 24 has hands of stone.

My prediction is one of the youngsters take his place by mid season, either curtis brown or Cortez allen. Taylor will be relegated to the nickel.

Sure Ike had a bad game vs Denver but does that really translate to him being done? I don't think so. Is Ike on the downside of his career? Yes. But as far as any other CB on the team goes, unless Ike gets hurt its very very doubtful he starts anything less then 16 games. I think the game plan and positioning played more into Ike's bad performance then Ike himself. No one expected what happened in that game to happen. The defense did not make enough adjustments in the second half to win. And I won't use injuries as an excuse but they did contribute to the outcome.
And as far as teams targeting Ike in 2012, I'm sure he will welcome the challenge. And confident he will succeed more then fail at the task.

In that game Tebow made the throws he needed to. And after the shock of it all subsided I'm glad he did. Because if he didn't then i'm going to say the Steelers would not have beaten the Patriots again. Just a feeling. And there's a very good chance the Steelers would not have gotten DeCastro if the result was a a win at Denver. So yes that game was a collassal failure in Steelers history but the silver lining is it helps to produce what could be the best OG since Faneca and that there could be well worth the lose.

yes, lets say ike is washed up after a season where all he did was put up brilliant numbers

A.J. Green, Cincinnati 6-87 yards, TD
Demaryius Thomas, Denver 4-204 yards, TD
Wes Welker, New England 4-23 yards
Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona 3-58 yards
Brandon Lloyd, St. Louis 3-39 yards
Anquan Boldin, Baltimore 3-35 yards
Andre Johnson, Houston 3-23 yards
Michael Crabtree, SF 3-23 yards
Jonathan Baldwin, KC 2-26 yards
Nate Washington, Tenn 2-11 yards
Dwayne Bowe, KC 1-25 yards
Mohamed Massaquoi, Clev 1-25 yards
Rob Housler, Arizona 1-20 yards
Steve Breaston, KC 1-18 yards
Jason Hill, Jacksonville 1-18 yards, TD
Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis 1-11 yards
Deion Branch, New England 1-10 yards
Josh Cribbs, Cleveland 1-10 yards
Mike Williams, Seattle 1-9 yards
Damian Williams, Tennessee 1-8 yards
Mike Thomas, Jacksonville 1-3 yards
Torrey Smith, Baltimore 1-2 yards
Pierre Garcon, Indianapolis 1-(-2) yards
46 catches 686 yds. 3 TD's.

thats right, 3 WRs got more than 50 yards on him...larry fitzgerald, AJ green (one being a 30+ yard TD bomb jump ball), and Thomas (who wasnt a rookie btw)

and 3 TDs...Green, Thomas, and Jason Hill....he was amazing all year long, i hardly can blame him for the entire defense letting tim ****ing tebow throw bombs on them all day. Ridiculous thread, ridiculous reasoning

No, Ike is not done. The defensive scheme that day, along with Ryan Clark not playing was as much the cause of the loss as anything. The scheme was designed for Tebow to beat us with his arm and not his legs, which he did.

I have to agree with you assessment and hope you are right.

Is this a serious thread, did you not watch lastseason? Just the playoff game?

No way Ike Taylor is done, no way at all. The dude is the best cornerback on the team no question. The bad game against Denver was just that, a bad game. He takes full responsibility for it. Imagine last season without him though, I sure don't want too. Gay was hardly a great corner, although improved yes, and behind him was nothing but rookies and Keenan Lewis.

Lewis though I would have liked to see take over Gay's spot then but overall Ike still has many years left, atleast enough to fulfill all or most of his new deal.

I'm just saying the Steelers let Gay go. Now, Taylor is the only experienced corner. If Taylor doesn't turn his play around, it will be a long season on defense.

I LOVE THIS POST !!!!!!!!!!! and those numbers with not getting away with ANYTHING, they penalize him so quick if he got away with as much as Revis, we may be looking at a top 5 Corner ... as Ike is my favorite Steeler .... no way he is done ... and that lose in Denver has got to be more on the game plan more then Ike

When Ike can't hang as a CB he will move to FS. However I'd prefer the put Cortez Allen at FS now. Ike isn't done but he's becoming his own head case. Once players start worrying about being a Pro Bowler they tend to make stupid mistakes. Ike was Brilliant vs New England and not so much vs Denver. Dick Le Beau is the reason we lost. He didn't make adjustments. I can't wait for Keith Butler to take over after this season.

:tt02: ... Well done K Train ... this is how you slam down a preposterous unfounded notion ... Ike Taylor will be playinng this season with a major chip on his shoulder! ... It's who Ike is!

The Defense in the playoff game was on DL. The offense was on Ben for having to play on a bad ankle for the previous 4 weeks becuase we have no reliable backup QB's. Plus our Kicker sucks....

If were talking about the loss to the Broncos in the play-offs then we should ask this....Is the old man Dick LeBeau done?......LeBeau's game plan is to blame mostly for the Broncos loss........When Tebow proved he could beat man coverage the old man should have switched to zone.......

Plus...the absence of a pass rush helped out too. Look at the last pass he threw to Thomas to win the game. Where was the initial pass rush?

Ike will be here.No worries.

Oh for Fs sake already. The blame goes on the DC for that lost far more than on Ike.

I swear, people make up stupid shtuff just to pass the time until training camp begins.
