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.
    Actually, Capers and Lebeau built those teams. A. Smith and Farrior were good because they were STEELERS. Put them elsewhere and they are nobodies. What did farrior do for the Jets? Exactly. You mean they are COLBERTS guys. Cowher didnt want Ben and Colbert and the Rooneys DID. Cowher had less power than you think and thats why he quit (He quit BEFORE his wife was diagnosed)

    by any chance, were you able to catch last season's playoff loss to the great Tim Tebow and/or this past game against future Hall of Famer Matt Hasselbeck?

    or were you too busy focusing in on why Ben is not an elite QB to notice how poorly Ike played?

    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.

    Sorry...not part of the defensive template
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Most people are citing ONE ON ONE beatings from Ike. We dont play one on one. The ZONE is getting beat not ONE individual. If you play a zone you play an AREA not a man. Learn football
