    I would love to see Ike stay in Pittsburgh, but you are correct Black. They dragged their feet to shell out 9 million on Hines. Ike and his agent must be crazy to demand 10 million. He knows the Rooneys and hopefully he gets that whole 10 million dollar signing bonus idea out of his head.

    Oh trust me I hope Ike is back also. But I just really don't see it happening. I hate to sound negative. Thats not my thing. But I just don't have a good feeling about Ike. I think Ike wants to stay really bad. But this is where agents suck and are bad for sports. Really its their job to get the most money for their clients but agents do suck.

    I don't want the Steelers to over pay for Ike also. I remember very well when we resigned Chad Scott and DeWayne Washington. Didn't work out to well. I just think it would be smart to see what Ike does this year before making him a serious offer.

    You don't sound negative at all Black. You sound very realistic. I couldn't agree more let's see how Ike performs this year. Yes he did play very well last year, but let's see if he can keep it up.

    I would be more concerned about signing Taylor if we didn't have guys like Colclough and McFadden waiting in the wings but we do and it's nice to know we wouldn't have to make a free agent signing to fill the spot.

    Another thing to consider about us resigning Ike is...how Ricardo Colclough plays this year. So far Ricardo hasn't shown to much since being our second round pick in the 2004 NFL draft. If Ricardo plays well then the thinking might be we could afford to let Ike go. But if Ricardo continues to show that he is a wasted 2nd round pick then that could force the Rooney's hand to make Ike a serious offer.

    I think Ike and Joey will both be gone.
