Hall of Famer
Through five games Ike has been targeted 44 times, allowing 24 receptions for 392 yards and four touchdowns while being called for seven penalties. So 31 of 44 attempts his way have been a positive result for the offense. Yep, lets keep starting him and as someone said he is a top CB in the league
Touting his non negative production means nothing. It's like saying I drove my car 44 times and only crashed 8 times. I never said bench him but it's helped him before.....and I never said play him at FS. Been an Ike supporter for years but he looks absolutely terrible. Nothing could be worse than his current play.

I like the idea of putting a fire under his butt. Let him know his job isnt secure...and Allen is ready to step up with one more bad game. See if it helps.
NOW is the time to bench him. We are likely to lose to any team we play from here on in that has a QB.
The Yanks can bench A-Rod in the 5th and deciding game of the championship - not because of injury but because he was sucking the big wazoo at the bat. Bold move, but the right one to make,whether it turns out well or not (it did). Who did they start in his place - some nobody ... but a nobody was thought better than A-Rod.
WHY can't our coaches make a similar decision? Is it just not done in the NFL? On the Steelers? On the Steelers defense?
Give the 2nd string a shot - THE WORST that could happen is that we lose the game because of it ... but that's where we are now anyway, so why not shoot for any option with at least a little upside?
We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!
HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

- Charles Harris-OLB, Missouri
- Rasul Douglas-CB, West Virginia
- Chris Godwin-WR, Penn State
- John Johnson-S, Boston College
- James Conner-RB, Pitt
- Nazair Jones-DT, North Carolina
- Garrett Sickels, DE/OLB, Penn State

What I want to know is why haven't we drafted and/or developed quality talent in all of these years on the defensive side of the ball.
Stick around. I'm sure that's cowher's fault some how as well.
no he's not...
