Ike Taylor became well known Sunday for all the wrong reasons. If you’re a cornerback and the general public knows your name, it’s either because you made a spectacular interception, or because you got burned. The latter was true for Taylor.
The Steelers cornerback gave up pass plays of 51 and 58 yards before allowing the 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas in overtime. Even though he’s been considered one of Pittsburgh’s best defensive backs, he was one of the biggest culprits in the team’s loss. For that, he apologized after the game.
“Second I apologize for playing the worst game at the wrong time apologize to my teammates steelernation and family. Luv y’all to [death]” he wrote on Twitter.
Taylor also congratulated the Broncos for the win. No doubt he had to be stunned by the outcome.
Despite the win, Tim Tebow is not much of a passer; he only completed 10 balls. But that’s what happens when many defenses face him — they get lulled to sleep by all the runs and incompletions, and all of a sudden they get burned by a deep ball. It’s like facing a pitcher who throws a changeup, changeup, changeup, curve, and then boom — hits you with a blazing fastball with two strikes to catch you looking. That’s Tim Tebow — the junkballing quarterback.Google+
