Thread: Ike Taylor...Really?

    Ike Taylor...Really?

    I keep hearing that if we are to make the post-season, that having Ike Taylor back will definetley be the difference since Victorian seems like he would have a very difficult time defending the likes of Brady, Manning, and Schaub. Clearly Ike is an upgrade but is he that big of an upgrade to make a difference? I keep hearing commentators every week say that he is an elite corner and is always guarding the best reciever. Ok but what if when he is guarding those best recievers and they are always scoring on him? I remember earlier in the year it seemed like every reciever he guarded scored on him. Examples, D. Thomas, D. Heyward-Bey, S. Holmes, K. Britt, A.J. Green, Victor Cruz, etc. and he has a total of 1 int. He clearly isnt an elite shutdown corner like Revis is and I truly believe that will not be the difference of success if we make the playoffs. In my opinion, getting pressure on those elite quartberacks who dont like to be out of the pocket will be the real difference, otherwise as I said earlier our corners will make no difference in the outcomes.

    Just wanted to hear thoughts on what the real difference would be if we are to make the playoffs....

    Ike hasn't had a great season, especially the first part of it, but I don't think that all the receivers you mentioned scored on him. He's not elite, and he's never snagged many picks, but he's still the best we have. And compared with the likes of Victorian, King, even Brown? C'mon. Even Allen and Lewis, while they've showed a lot of potential, they're not yet as dependable as Taylor. If, by some miracle, we were to make the playoffs, we'd have to have Ike back to have any kind of chance at making a run.

    I saw a similarity in your posting styles, and asked a simple question. No problem there.

    Bull sh-t.

    Clearly, you attempted a form of ridicule. No biggie. But if you are allowed to do it, then everyone should be allowed. Double standards are untruthful.

    You 2 are like Ovi and Spaghetti. It took a while, but now they're besties. In good ole Hollywood Brangelina fashion, I'm dubbing those 2 "Spaghetti O's".

    You guys could be "D Roid". All it takes is agreeing on 1 thing and bam - it just happens.

    Welcome to the board.

    I don't think that Ike Taylor is elite like Revis, but few are. He had an awful game in Denver and a slow start to the season, but he played well after that. The difference between Ike and Victorian/Brown is that you can play more press and give less help/cushion. Ike is also a solid tackler, which makes a difference.
