    Default I Was Out of Town for Two Days And.....

    ..did Ike say he was going FA??

    I read something on the "Insider" which made it seem like Taylor was leaving town if he didn't get a bazillion dollars?

    Is that accurate, since it wasn't in the PG or Trib?

    Nothing on the Ike Taylor front yet. I am not aware of him saying anything other than wanting to finish his career in Pittsburgh.

    Teams are not allowed to make any transactions right now. Everything is on hold till they sort out the CBA.

    As far as I know you/we haven't missed a thing about Ike Taylor. As long as some team doesn't offer him stupid dollars the Steelers will get him back at the value he deserves.

    BTW, what if we don't get Ike back ? What would that be like ? Do we move McFadden or Gay over there ? Do we find a corner from FA, insert from within or draft a rookie and toss him in the lineup ?

    All these questions leaves me to believe, the Steelers will have to deal with Ike.

    Likely, we draft at least two corners and possibly look at a vet FA.

    Below is the link for the "story" I thought I saw!!

    Whenever the dust settles with the CBA, I think Ike gets a deal. He's got at least another 3-5 solid years left in the tank... WITH THE STEELERS!

    He can, however, chase paper and mostlikely fizzle out in Arizona

    With the topic of Ike reminds me again how great of a fit and player Deshea Townsend was for all those years.

    He was never really a starter tho thats why gay reminds me of DT. A guy that can start but you would rather have him for nickle and dime. I think they get Ike done. I dont think he wants to leave. They might have to let him go entertain offers tho. He might not be worth as much as he thinks.

    Who wasn't a starter ? Also, to say Gay reminds you of Deshea is an insult to Deshea IMHO.

    Im not worried about disrespecting DT. And it was him that was never a starter. We used him there a few years because we had no better options. DT got burnt alooot man. Its funny how players become ledgends after their playing days.

    i didn't say he was a ledgend. i said he was a good fit and i learned to apprcieate him. as far as i remember he did start after washington and scott departed. granted, deshea wasn't pro bowl good but he was good all the same.
    deshea never got burned or humiliated as gay did with gays one season of being a starter. gay is just an okay 5 & 10 player that, i doubt any team would pickup if we released him. gays a bum.

    I am not trying to put words in your mouth just saying I think people get nostalgic and overrate players. The difference between DT and Gay is Gay was thrown in as a starter before he was ready. DT was already very experienced when he was given the role. DT was a smart player but physically couldn't defend a lot of the receivers in the league.

    Unless Ike gets offered real stupid money, which I doubt happens, I think he will want to stay at his comfort zone right here where he is appreciated as a shutdown corner who can't make an INT and have a chance for more SB's. Great corners get big money because of INT's, something he is lacking but we tolerate it because his coverage and run support are still good.
