    Point is, most of you are waaaay undervaluing Ike's abilities.
    I'm not undervaluing Ike. BUT, HE IS OLD FOR A CB!

    What? Ike was exposed early on last year... he was a PI machine and Tennessee picked on him all night. Its funny that you bring up the
    Bengal game. We went dime the whole game and helped out Ike all night....

    Here is a nice breakdown of the help Ike received and they have a great photo of Ike being beat for a sure TD but guess who broke up the pass in the endzone? Lewis.

    Ike WAS good... now he is just a decent DB who can run but still has a hard time seeing the ball. At 34 it was a bad idea to keep him over Lewis.

    I guess there will be one or two board members that will keep us posted all season long on Ike vs Lewis stats. Should make for some great board banter.... and a lot of I told you so's, one way or the other.

    I believe that he is still a FA because we haven't heard a thing about him all off-season.

    Had we won that game we would have only made it to the next before losing. Way too many injuries in that game. Kiesel, Hamton and Starks (if memory serves me right) all tore something -one groin and two ACL's...

    that's a poor excuse to make the Denver game sting less...

    Not really ... I remember feeling somewhat of a relief that we weren't having to go into New England and have them hand us our arse again. We were decimated and probably wouldn't have beaten a college team the next week. As bad as I didn't want us to lose that game I'd rather lose to the Broncos than the *'s.

    Okay, maybe you're right, I'm just using it as an excuse to make myself feel better .... but that's what it's all about, right?

    I did a little research and was able to pull this thread back up from the spring 2013... very interesting to see how this has unfolded... with Ike's play falling off...and Lewis emerging as a solid corner with another team..

    My username then was "Big Ern McCracken" by the way... in case you were wondering what my opinion was back then.
