I'll be honest. Last year I hated Ike Taylor. Overrated. The only time I did that shut down hand waiving thing he does was when he got burned or when he fouled someone to avoid getting burned. Last year I chortled a little whenever announcers called him our best CB.
But this year he won me over. Don't get me wrong he still screws up, he's one of the few NFL players to deserve every single Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty he's ever been called for (and a few that he hasn't been called for), and the only reason he's a CB is b/c if he could catch he would be a WR.
That said, you can't defend Larry Fitzgerald much better than this. Sure Fitz caught it, but he's a freak of nature.
All year long Ike played well and slowly I quit congratulating him for not screwing up or ceased expressing surprise that he knocked the ball away without commiting a foul. In the Super Bowl (of course I yelled something unkind when Fitz came down with the ball) watching the replay I realized that Ike did a heck of a job (only two people could've caught that ball and Jesus Christ doesn't play football) and I finally agree, he's a pretty goob CB.
