    Except there was literally no way possible we were gonna keep Keenan Lewis.


    Lewis Literally told every team before he got drafted he was playing for the Saints(he wanted to be drafted by noone but the saints). He shot down better offers (which are still over 5 mil per)


    Once the Saints offered him a contract, it was a done deal.

    I know that tidbit of information.... so you can go back to your hole now.

    Money changes a lot. Give Lewis some of that 10 million that Ike doesn't deserve and he stays.

    Exactly.... Ike at this point isn't worth 5 million let alone 10m.

    Players say that stuff all the time. Is there any evidence that teams (including the Steelers) offered him much more than the Saints?

    And if that is indeed the gods honest truth... why would you even draft the guy if no matter what, he doesn't want to play for your franchise. That's just dumb on all accounts.

    It is the truth. I posted a link previously. Keenan Lewis even admitted it himself...

    Yes I read that. Do you know if the Steelers offered him a contract? If so, how much? A lot of players say stuff like that after the fact... It's good PR and the fans slober over stuff like that. The reality is.... 5 extra million changes a lot of peoples minds quickly even in a backloaded contract.

    And like I said.... why would anyone except NO draft the guy if this was known? A complete waste of a pick if it's well known he doesn't want to play professional football for anyone but the NO Saints.

    Keenan matched his interception total from 4 years as a Steeler in his first month as a Saint. Congratulations.
    It's not a revelation. The Board is one big whine fest right now. The posters that usually post informed opinions or great articles have scaled back because this place is on a fast track to the nearest gutter. Ike Taylor has never been one to pick the ball off but he's still shutting down the opposing teams number one receivers. Cotez Allen on the other hand is still a very young corner with a lot of ability. You know this, most sane Steeler fans know this but the "whine patrol" needs something to whine about so we get threads like these that sh*t up the board. It's quickly becoming unbearable around here but with me in Columbus and away from the Pittsburgh media is still a good resource for certain kinds of information. You just have to filter through a pile of crap daily and that sucks.

    Adding to the whine fest. Nice work.

    Ike Taylor is not a shut down corner at this point in his career and he isn't worth anywhere close to 10 million. Your being a delusional homer if you think that.

    On the other hand, Ike does take cool pictures with Dan Rooney so it's all good.

    You and a few others are single handily muddying up the board with your bs. Ike Taylor is still a shut down corner, he's still in amazing shape and he's never been able to catch. As Chadman already said, if our defensive line or just the front seven in general could pressure the qb the turnovers would come. Stop sh.itting up the board with your bs.
