Ike talyor for sure
Ike talyor for sure
ok, i think bryant mcfadden is gonna be an animal for us, i think he was a great pickup and he learned the defense very fast, i also think cowher was holding him back....and tomlin should let him so us what he can do.
Ike will be fine, hes a great player despite how many times Javon Walker raped him, tomlin will do great things for him, and despite how much i dont really like townsend, he did have a solid year despite all the mess that went on. i think we'll be ok at corner, theres also cocface* who i think is dead weight and should be cut. But this madison guy on our roster...who knows, cowher kept us in the dark about so many players its not funny, we might learn alot about some of our players this year.
*note, i hate cocface, hes in my cedric wilson group
Damn K-Train you got a serious hard on for Colclough's demise huh? Anyway if we draft Hall, Revis, Houston or any other corner in the first round ill start puching infants!!! Hall is the only worthy corner of a 1st pick and not at 15, even though he will be gone before that i think simply for the fact some teams really need a corner and he is the only stand-out if you wanna call him that. We dont need a corner, we need more of a pass rush. When you run a zone blitz you will leave holes in the zone, its gonna happen, and with out a pass-rush your just setting your corners up for failure. The Steelers actually had alot more "coverage sacks" this year than usual. Ike is asked to cover the opponents best WR every week. He's gonna be MUCH better this season thanks to Tomlin. He has the physical make up and ability to be a top 5-10 corner in this league for years to come. McFadden is solid and will continue to get much better. Deshea will be the first off the bench which is a very solid back-up in case of injury. I think Colclough will be helped out TONS along w/ the rest of the corners by Tomlin. So WE DO NOT NEED TO DRAFT A CORNER DAY 1! period! This is not a easy defense to learn, so i dont think your gonna see a rookie come in and accel in the secondary. Even Troy had to be worked in slowly his first 2 years. Linebacker or D-line are the only positions that i think a rookie can have an immediate impact on this defense, look at the rookie year Bell had compared to the young secondary players we draft. Our 1st pick should be OLB/DE or WR in my opinion because those are the 2 spots where guys can come in ad produce right away.
You know I think when you have your pass rush sucking and then bad cornerback playing (Ike Taylor) then someone going to get blamed. Simple knowledge is if you have 2-3 guys blitzing someone’s bound to be open and if there’s no pressure to the qb then 90% of the time its a first down. So that’s where you can’t blame the secondary. but getting burned by Javon Walker and letting the Bengals pass all over you and losing the jump ball in the endzone is when you could blame the secondary. Id say give Taylor one more year to show what hes got, it doesnt need to be an extraordinary year just to show us he got what it takes which and I think Ike and Tomlin can absoulutly do. I don't know much about McFadden but from what I've seen he's looking promising. If we ever did draft a cb in the first round he better be the best CB in the AFC and thats not going to happen in this years first round. so I would disagree with a CB at round #15

ike is not a bad corner, i think you guys arent being fair to him. we were bad all together last year, why is it the ike gets most of the blame for everything? i bet you guys were all over his dick in 05 when he was tearing it up and being successful, last year sucked ass for the whole team, stop being so hard on ike
because of Ike getting burned and losing the jump ball several times. Im not saying hes a bad corner he just had a bad year just like Roethlisberger but Ike didn't the excuses Ben had.
sure he did, in a way....cowher babied the shit out of ben, let him do whatever.....and cowher screwed with ikes head, and sucked the confidence right out of him. anyway, all of the secondarys problems leads right up to the front seven...its been said over and over again
