    I'm not for benching players willy-nilly, but there is a point to be made here...

    Now, there may not be much gained by benching players like Colon or Foote...depth behind them is thin (as with NT now)...

    But, as poorly as Ike is playing overall at this time, can the guy behind him be that much worse?

    Right now, if the opponent isn't completing a long pass on Ike, it's because Ike interfered and got flagged for it...

    Does benching a player send a message to the rest of the team to wake the F up?

    Last time Ike was benched, he played his way back into the starting lineup and finished off the season with better play, did he not?

    Something to think about...

    McLendon should start over Hampton and Heyward for Keisel. Start two young CB's. Move Ike to FS and Clark to SS.

    Ike Taylor is on the other teams BEST receiver every week. So OF COURSE he will get more "spotlight" plays. You guys focus on the penalties but what about the other 40 plays where he holds his own? Ike is top 10 Corner IN THE NFL. Bench him for someone that IS WORSE than him. YEAH THATS SMART

    Yeah, he holds his own 40 plays out of the game where they run it or throw to the other receivers. Good call. Top 10 = joke.

    Exactly...started Charred Scott and DeShame Washington. I don't wanna hear it. As mad as people are at Taylor right now...I'm not convinced this is anymore than a slump. I guess time will tell.

    This is actually a decent idea. The only problem is that FS is an entirely new position. If that move was going to be made...should have been made in the preseason. And there is no way Ike would have been willing to make that move...at that time.

    Ike has been around this D for a decade. He should know the responsibility of the FS.

    Ike needs to stop holding his own and start holding onto some footballs...

    Not sure why people are acting like benching/reducing the playing time of some of these vets is a crazy idea. McClendon is clearly better than Hampton... start him. Keisel is on the backside of his career.... Heyward should get more time IMO.

    Ike needs to sit down somewhere... the guy is playing horrible football right now. Take him out for a few series and see what the next guy up can do. We might be surprised... Ike gets way too much credit IMO. He isn't nearly as good as we make him out to be. The only time he looks good is when we sack the QB or hurry him into a bad throw. If the QB can step into his throw Ike is toast or getting a flag.
