    Cowher has already clearly stated that Coclough had a great camp, made leaps and bounds, and that is backed up by the fact that he got the start over McF in the Eagles game (although Bryant will get the start in the Pathers game). That 60 yard bomb against Coke? One play. Ike was smoked a few times last year...Hell, even Deion Sanders (Whom I hate, but he was a great shut-down corner) got smoked from time to time.

    Give the kid a chance...Ike was just about as productive in his first two years (Read: not at all) and then he blossomed. We should be happy we have that much talent at the position...
    didn't cowher also say he liked what he saw in duce?? i'm sure ricardo will blossom, but i hope it's next year, cause losing ike might hurt a little if ricardo doesn't break out............the one thing with ricardo is that i never want to see him return a kick off again he ****in sucks and he acts like a pussy when he's about to get hit

    To back BRC's claim, about Coc, go back and watch the Cardinals game. There was a couple of times he could have broke on the ball and picked it off, but he just couldn't break on the ball. The guy is lightening quick, he showed that last year but he doesn't know how to use it.
