Steelers' Ike Taylor: Dick LeBeau Is "Jesus' Cousin"

I really wish you could embed these videos from NFL.com, but hey. Go here to hear an interview with Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor in which he calls defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau "Jesus' cousin."

Q: What's it really like playing for Coach LeBeau?

A: Got swag, has a CD out, can play pretty much any instrument you ask him to, started 147 games consecutively, never sat out, never missed a game, ladies' man, charmer, still does push-up at his age (I don't want to give his age out), smooth -- he has to be Jesus' cousin for how cool he is. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm talking about Coach LeBeau.

That's just a classic answer right there. This is a fun interview all around. It ends with Taylor explaining why he wears a Terrible Towel over his face -- "Me playing the cornerback position, you've gotta be the Lone Ranger without Tonto."
