    Where did I say anything about either Gordon or Ike's coverage of him in Sunday's game?

    After watching Ike all season, I hardly think it's outlandish to say that his performance has declined somewhat, and therefore we have too much money tied up in an aging player relative to what we can expect out of him.

    It's not just Ike. There are several aging players that are costing this team too much. We need to figure out how to rectify that situation, if we're going to be contenders in the next few years. It may require releasing some players, or getting some of them to take a pay cut...

    I'm glad I'm not alone in watching the Defense and its design. Ike Taylor gave up maybe 4 of those catches for abot 50 yards. The rest, as Snatch98 said, came from zone D and 5-10 yard crossing routes against the zone which falls mostly on Timmons.

    1. T.J Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin - will be a huge mistake if available and we pass

    2. Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut

    3. Kevin King, CB, Washington

    3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

    5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

    6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)

    7. Alec Torgersen, QB, Pennsylvania
