Postby blackjack68 on Sun Sep 09, 2012 12:07 am

Old Ben. New Peyton.

Wallace is back, but will he prove himself?

Clark still has Sickle Cell.

Harrison is out.

Odds are against.

We win.

Book it!

Here We Go Steelers!

No........no it wouldn't, lol. But the Jets do have the market cornered on non-NFL caliber QBs.

The post about the over/under on Ike being burned is deleted. Heh, I didn't notice who made it.

Ike Taylor sucks something fierce though so... I'll say he gets burned a lot tomorrow

Games like the BAL game in Week 15 last year make me furious that I can't be mature enough in my prioritization to just set the DVR and go to bed when I need to. Staying up because the Steelers are making what should be an "easy" game a close one is also frustrating; KC last year comes to mind. It's ridiculous how I do this to myself season after season when each year it's harder to rebound for work the next day. I ain't no spring chicken anymore, except on weekends. :wink:

Aside from a few mentions of last year's playoff game, I think we're safe since the game is on NBC.

Ike Taylor was the #1 CB against the pass last year in the entire NFL with something rediculous like a 34% completion percentage. Try again.

If you live with an Iggles diehard like me, then you've experienced some yelling already. :lol:

Michael Vick is wearing a "declassified, military-grade Kevlar compression" shirt. The guy probably wears better gear than much of the country's law enforcement.

Did you watch the Denver game? Did you watch the Superbowl, the seaon before?

He gets exposed against any team with a respectable QB.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry when Stillers fans compare him to Darrelle Revis, Nnamdi Asomugha, or Asante Samuel

Ike Taylor isn't Darrelle Revis, but he's a very good corner.

False information is false.

Brice McCain was the 1# CB in the league (According to that garbage stat) last year with a 30% completion percentage. There is like 5 other CBs in between him and Ike, Will Allen and Richard Sherman are two of them.


That stat sucks so hard... its like plus/minus in the nhl.
