Steelers' Ike Taylor Blasts Stephen A. Smith

Behind The Steel Curtain collects an awesome series of tweets by Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor to ESPN blowhard Stephen A. Smith, who said on Friday, "I didn't know he was allowed back in the NFL after the way he performed against the Denver Broncos. A banishment is a worthy consideration."

Of course, the 'you never played the game' critique is pretty silly, but Stephen A. Smith is an idiot, and it's fun to see Taylor come after him. To see people like him and Skip Bayless be given such an important platform to critique their play and spew nonsense must be annoying indeed for the players. Taylor's playoff performance against the Broncos was terrible, but he was also easily the Steelers' best cornerback last year.
