    Taylor made coverage on Fitz

    Thought Ike played Larry as well as anyone has. took some penalties but played him physical.As good a job as any cover guy in the league.

    Best season of Ike's career so far.

    HE did have a big penalty that he shouldnt have gotten, then got away with one also. Am i just homer or does it seem like Fitzgerald whimes every play? Do our players whine that much?

    Nah, Kolb whined a lot more than Fitz. Fitz is a class act.

    Fitzgerald made Ike look like a rookie in the first half. The penalties that he had today though on that drive in the first half, completely inexcusable. Twice he single handedly gave the Cardinals a first down after the defense had them stopped on 3rd down. Even when he wasn't covering Fitz, he was definitely having a rough day early.

    In the 2nd half he was able to get it together a little more and take care of business. You can't ever shut down Fitzgerald completely, he's just too good, nobody can. Far be it from me to criticize Taylor though, he's had a great year so far but man that was ugly for awhile today.

    Fitzgerald seemed to get in his head right out of the gate when he made that leaping grab on the sidelines where Ike had perfect coverage.

    He had a rough first 2 quarters. After that coverage was air tight.

    I don't think it was that rough....Fits is a great player and will make plays period......As for the penalties on Ike....I'm glad he played physical with Fitz instead of backing off......Sure it cost Ike sometimes but that is how you play a WR like Fitz is by being physical....Ike has been the most consistent player on the team week in and week out so far this year.....

    Was as rough as we've seen Ike thus far. Not last year Willie Gay rough, but rough nonetheless.

    It's okay to have a "rough" day against arguably the best receiver in the game.

    78 yards, no TD's. Not awful at all.

    Yeah I'm not complaining about Taylor at all. It's hard to fault him for playing physical against a receiver like Fitz. It was just the first game that we've seen him really falter at all.
