    Taylor loss could cripple Steelers

    "With the size of the receivers in this league, you need an intimidator in the secondary. Yes, the media loves interceptions, and Taylor has hands like he hits — like a rock — but his ability to punish the opponent's top receiver is what he brings to the table. If you look at the cornerbacks in this year's draft, I dare anyone to find me someone that can step in and replace Taylor, especially right away, considering where the Steelers will pick in the first round (No. 31 overall)."

    I've been saying this for years,people tend to get on Ike because he don't make the int's but there's a lot more to being a CB. Hell if he could catch the ball ,he'd be a WR.

    No doubt losing him would be a huge blow to the secondary. I think what many fans get upset at more than anything with Ike is how far he plays off the receivers. Not always his fault because of scheme or call, but I can live without the INT's if he is covering up their #1 guy.

    Ike Taylor is crucial for our secondary. If the Steelers let him go, oooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh man.

    The Steelers won't let Ike go, he wants to finish his career in Pittsburgh and as long as the Steelers give him fair market value it's a safe bet he'll stick around. You all are right though, if he would leave the gaping hole in our Secondary would be a monster blow to try and overcome.

    Taylor staying would be key for the secondary improving, but if we do lose him we have Butler or a drafted CB to fill in (notice I didnt mention Lewis). The secondary might not get worse if he leaves, but it certainly hinders it chances of getting better. I really like Butler and think Butler and Ike as our starting CB's would be good.

    If Taylor is lost then the team would have to make a move on Joseph or Cromartie to get back to even, but that wouldn't make much sense as they will probably command more money.
