Steelers Vs. Broncos: Ike Taylor Apologizes

No one on the Steelers can feel particularly good about their first-round defeat at the hands of the 8-8 Denver Broncos, but the player who probably feels the worst is Ike Taylor. Taylor played so well during much of the season that opposing quarterbacks even avoided throwing in his direction, but he was repeatedly burned by Tim Tebow and the Broncos.

Taylor refused to talk to the press after the game, but he did issue a couple of tweets.

First off congrats too tebow and the broncos … Second I apologize for playing the worst game at the wrong time apologize to my teammates steelernation and family. Luv y’all to def

Beyond that, there probably isn’t much to say. On the first long pass to Demaryius Thomas, Taylor’s coverage was good, but Tebow had about an hour to throw, and he threw perfectly. On two other plays, though, including the touchdown pass that ended it, Taylor just got beaten.
