  • If there is one guy who the Steelers cannot afford to lose playing time, it is Ike. I feel this guy should be a captain. Ike might not get the interceptions, but he shuts down receivers. Not only that, Ike is the best tackling corner in the game. Yeah, Ike struggled in the beginning of the season, but he returned as the old Ike.

Ike is just as important.
