Well Pap, when i base my opinion on Ike it's because he is getting paid like a #1.
If Ike was making vet min then i'd have no complaints.
Agreed that Taylor did not have a good year.

So if you accept that premise then why to we continue to want to spend premier draft picks on defense first? Shouldn't we be trying above all else to get an offense that is among the best versus a defense that is among the best?
Defense matters, and you really don't need to look past the last SB teams, the Rats and 49ers, both defense centric teams. The high scoring offenses get more of the regular season hype, but the strong defensive teams typically prevail in January.
