    I'm sure glad..

    We didn't keep Keenan Lewis....

    Keenan Lewi = 3 PD, 1 FF, 1 INT

    but that's ok because we have that stud playmaker....

    Cortez Allen = 0 PD, 0 FF, 0 INT

    or stone hands Ike Taylor that is old, overpaid and can't catch a cold CB

    Ike Taylor = 4 PD, 0 FF, 0 INT <=== There's a shocker

    It's all good though... we'll continue to pay Ike elite playmaker money at 33.5 because he's Dan's buddy.

    Okay...Ike and Cortez have played 6 games combined and have no interceptions. We all know that.

    Keenan Lewis has 1 interception in 5 games...he's not exactly leading the league in picks here...not sure what the big revelation is here.

    Keenan matched his interception total from 4 years as a Steeler in his first month as a Saint. Congratulations.

    And has a forced fumble.... but your buddy Ike is really lighting the world on fire with his goose egg in INTs. There's a big shocker. I'm sure glad we're paying an old (& showing it) CB close to ~10 millions dollars this year. By the way, how many INTs has Ike dropped already this year? He's on pace to drop more INTs this year than his total CAUGHT INTs for his entire career. That's clearly worth elite money. He's surely worth 9/million dollars more than Lewis.

    It would help if you knew the facts. Keenan Lewis didn't want to stay with the Steelers. Keenan Lewis wanted to play for his home town team the Saints. He took less money from the Saints then he would had gotten from another team.

    lewis was never gonna re-sign here. He clearly wanted to go home.

    if he got on the field before his UFA year. they could have extended him a year before he reached UFA status.

    we all know once they get there 99% dont come back to us

    How about Cortez's Last 5 games, vs Keenan Lewis past 5 games (since Lewis has had 5 games to play, Cortez 2.)


    Cortez has (4 starts, only completed 4 games due to injury in week 1 this year)


    PD: 3. Interceptions: 2 Forced Fumbles: 3



    Keenan Lewis:


    3 passes defended, 1 int, 1 forced fumble,






    Honestly though. Keenan wasn't coming back. Hes a saint fan through and through and took a paycut to be with them. A paycut, mind you he is still making 6-7 mil a year.

    If the Steelers got more pressure up front, the turnovers will increase.

    Of all the problems the Steelers have, CB isn't that high on the list RIGHT NOW.

    That said, Ike can't play forever, and next draft, a CB needs to be selected to play that role sooner than people might want to think.

    Congratulations? At 10 million a year...Ike is overpaid...and old. We could have kept Kennan Lewis for half the cost...gotten younger... and set the table at corner for the next 5 years across cortez allen.... not to mention freeing up cap space for other needs.
