Ike got beat. ALL corners get beat. Doesnt erase the fact that Ike Taylor runs a 4.2 40. Has a 40 inch verticle. He is a freak of an athlete. I still want to see the 10 corners better than him. And as you can see by this footage, WE PLAY A ZONE, so stop acting like Ike is getting beat one on one. Blame the scheme.
Blame the scheme. Really. Zone coverages do not relieve individual responsibiliy within the zone...especially for corners. Teams can and will flood areas of zone coverages to create mismatches of time and space. That's not happening. At least not regularly to Ike. Again......been a fan of Ike's for years. His current play can't be defended. Can't be.
Maybe instead of benching Ike the idea should be that if his job is tougher than the others to give him more help. Do we really think that Lewis is the man to line up opposite the best WR on the other team? Play a system with 3 CBs and 1 S while Troy is still out - that gets Mundy off the field and we still have a chance to see what either Allen or Brown can do.
