At least Ike has a shot to make his first Pro Bowl now. ;)

He's been quietly good enough to go for years... ironic that the worst game of his life puts him in the game. He blanketed the Ocho Stinkos and shut down the TO's and Randy Mosses, but apparently Demaryius Thomas owns him.

Shut down?
Please, never say "shut down" and Ike, especially after what we just watched. Any "shutting down" he did of elite WR's Owens or Moss was strictly a product of circumstance. (I will concede that he effectively defended Ocho.) But shut down and Ike should NEVER go together ever again.

I have never seen Ike play worse than he did today.

As poorly as he played in this game, Ike has had a PB season and definitely deserves this reward. He should have been named from day 1.

Good for Ike. He deserves just as much Pouncy, Troy, Ben or just about anyone else who's arrived on the pro bowl roster. Ike's a very good corner who had a very bad game. I know other players who fit that description as well. I've been humored by all the people who have been bashing Ike and using him as the scapegoat for the loss. Ike was one of many who had underwhelming performances in that game, coaches included....

Ike had a great regular season and a terrible playoff game...

Tebow had a terrible regular season, but killed the Steelers with his passing...

Bad set of circumstances for the black 'n' gold...

Yes, dont pick on poor Ike he's been solid for years but decided to sh-t the bed against the worst ranked passer in the league
He only signed a lucrative contract this year but give the guy a break, cant play every game like you have a clue :roll:

To bad the new contract didn't come with a new pair of hands.

btw.... how bout that pass interference call that got called LATE. It was interference but why do refs let the WR dictate whether the call is made. They didn't call it until the WR was crying.

Meanwhile, Brown gets clearly interfered with and we don't get the call.

Ike Taylor: “I apologize for playing the worst game at the wrong time”

Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor, who was repeatedly burned by Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas in Sunday night’s loss, has offered an apology.

Taylor wrote on Twitter after the game that he was sorry for the way he had played.

“First off congrats too tebow and the broncos,” Taylor wrote. “Second I apologize for playing the worst game at the wrong time apologize to my teammates steelernation and family. Luv y’all to def.”

A frustrated Taylor reportedly damaged his locker in the visitors’ locker room at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium after the game. He did not speak to the media.

I think Ike plays his best when he plays CB on our left side.

First Keenan Lewis shatters glass in the locker room at Mile High during a preseason game a few years ago and now this. What do our corners have against this stadium? Perhaps they are standing up for a teammate in the secondary by trying to get back at Denver for taking Ryan Clark's spleen and gall bladder.
