Thread: Ike is garbage

    Re: Ike is garbage

    "I just talked to him corner to corner," LeBeau said when asked what he said to Taylor.

    LeBeau played cornerback for the Detroit Lions a lifetime ago and was good enough to make the Hall of Fame.

    "I know how he's feeling," LeBeau said of Taylor. "But that's part of playing corner. Ike will be back. He's down right now, but he'll be back."

    Next season, sure. Not next weekend, though.
    Wonder if anyone was consoling St. LeBeau after his barf-laden performance? He's the one that ought to be concerned about not coming back. Maybe Chuck Noll has a spot saved for him in the retirement home.

    Re: Ike is garbage

    Wow, all these people who have called for our defense to play press coverage more. To quit giving the cushion that allows opponents to catch the ball in front of our DBs are now complaining that we did exactly that.

    We lost ... it was either going to be last week or next week. This group of players look more like a hospital ward than a football team. Sorry but we weren't going anywhere this year.

    Balanced by all the posters who for years have said our DBs are NOT good enough to play man-to-man and NEED to give opposing receivers 10 yard cushions otherwise they would get burnt...like Ike...errrr I mean toast.

    And how about all the posters that have said Ike is our best DB? What does that say about our secondary?

    BTW - nice user name

    Re: Ike is garbage

    Question I have is why did Ike have such a poor game? He has been nothing but consistent the entire season and it came down to this?

    Was it a lack of preparation on his part? was he confused with new assignments or scheme? I understand a pass or two might happen, but this was completely out of character which points to something else that may have been involved. Is he covering for mistakes by Mundy and/or Troy?? I think LeBeau is secure enough that he would have manned up if it these were his calls.

    Re: Ike is garbage

    Ike had a great coverage season per normal. Those that are calling for his head are retarded and know little about football.
    Yes, he has terrible hands, but for several seasons he takes the tough defensive assignment and carries it out well. Not every game, not every play, but again it is the toughest coverage assignments.
    He had a terrible GAME and had ZERO help.

    Basically the plays were lasting so long that Ike's positioning changed several times. DThomas is like a power forward out there. He was basically just boxing out the smaller Ike and Ike didn't stand much chance on several of those. Also had a hard time getting him to the ground because he was off balance from trying to get to the ball.

    Where the hell was the rush? Deebo was lost and wrong footed all day. As were most of the defense. I think Mundy should have been in the box, not Troy. Troy should have been watching our backsides.

    Tebow is an awkward QB. Hard to defense the first time you play him. Reminds me of a starter called up from AAA in baseball. Unhittable til he makes it through the league.

    We finished with 3 DL, can't hardly get a rotation with noone on the bench. They were likely spent by games end.
    OL was in shambles. I mean shambles for a Steeler OL. Legs botched the game at C and his moving over there also weakened LG. Starks goes out for the game at some point. Oh, but undrafted RG and our rookie RT were in tact. lol


    To blame this on Ike is retarded. The whole team was a disaster and had we leaked through this game, we'd be totally gutted the next week.

    Picture this against NE:
    Imagine having ZERO subs at DL (would have picked up some scrub)
    A starting OL of (JScott, Kemo, Legs, Foster and Gilbert)
    -A description of that line could be unexperienced, unwanted, untalented, retarded gimp.

    A plus would be getting Clark back, but the rest is disaster.

    He lost that game for us and I'm glad he took responsibility instead of making excuses.

    CB is a lonely place but Ike tends to lose it all once he is burned.

    Ike doesn't usually get outed like he did against Denver for three reasons:

    1. The Steelers have played against some crummy teams this year that have have QBs that can't hit open receivers and when they do the receivers have often dropped the pass. There were MANY occasions when opposing receivers were open and the opposing QBs missed them.
    2. Gay, McFadden, Clark and the ENTIRE LB group are even worse in pass defense than Ike and therefore easy targets for the few decent QBs we played against this year. Why challenge Ike when the others are worse?
    3. Ike usually gives a nice 10 yard cushion against receivers. Against Denver the defenses LeBeau was calling required Ike to play bump-and-run. Took less time for Ike to get beat without his usual 10 yard cushion.

    Ike is a piece of ****. Unfortunately he is the best of a VERY bad secondary.....regardless of what inflated number (against piss-poor teams) the defense finished.

    none of this explains the performance against NE... absolutely stellar.

    Brady was 24/35 during that game with no picks. If Ike gave up 6 completions, who do you think gave up the other 18? See # 2 in above post.
