    Question How will that playoff loss affect Ike Taylor this season

    Ike Taylor did a recent interview where he talked about how that loss in Denver last season still haunts him. He's called it his worst game ever.


    Does that game stick in his head this season and become a motivational tactic or distraction?


    DB's have to have short memories, just like QB's do and WR's and Taylor has been around long enough that he should be able to overcome even a bad game like that. The defensive gameplan that day was just flat out bad so if anything the defense as a whole should be able to use that as motivation...as if they needed anymore.

    Ike is a vet, he knows how to handle himself. If he wants to use that game as motivation for this season then why not, go for it! I can remember back when he was drafted and Cowher started turning him into a CB, he would make a bad play, get burnt and it would get into his head for the rest of the game.

    I suspect Ike will return this year with another great season and I'm sure he'll have an extra hop in his step when he plays against Denver.

    he has really grown out of being a headcase after getting burnt, it used to be an issue with him and he would blow coverages.

    i say he plays lights out again this year, he was brilliant last year. swaggin shouldnt be effected

    I agree with K-Train. Ike knows how to handle himself now. I think not only him, but the team in general feels that if they were healthier down the stretch, things would have finished much different for them. And I think they all take that little chip on their shoulders and build upon it this coming season.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    You do not play CB in the NFL as long as he has with too long of a memory. It may motivate him in the offseason (and even the Denver game) but players who let it negatively impact them do not last.

    What?? Ike has always been awesome. It's hard to make your unit look good when you're surrounded by awful players.
