Ike Taylor believes the Steelers are special

Ike Taylor was at Pittsburgh Steelers minicamp last week and he spoke with Missi Matthews of and talked about the 2016 Steelers team. 

He told Matthews he was excited for the group and as you can see in the title, believes they will be “special.” But that isn’t just Taylor’s guess from 30,000 feet. Joey Porter seems to believe the same thing.

“I was talking to coach Joey Porter a couple weeks ago and he was like, ‘Ike, I’ve seen this before.’ I’m like, whatcha mean Peezy? And he was like, ‘remember how we competed with everything on the field to off the field? These guys are doing the same thing.’”

“Ladarius Green from San Diego, that’s a huge upgrade. DeAngelo Williams, I think, is one of the key factors. Le’Veon getting hurt, DeAngelo came in and had 907 yards. Arguably, you got the best quarterback, receiver, running back.”

“Just tackle the catch. I think when we played, that was a strong implement for Coach LeBeau. When the receiver get the ball, we’re breaking it up, picking it off, or tackling. There is no yards for catch. That means a lot. There’s going to be a lot of one-on-one situations where your help isn’t going to be there. So these guys have to understand yeah, these guys might catch the ball, but that’s all he’s doing. You’re deflecting the ball or tackling on site.”
