LATROBE (93-7 The Fan) – Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor joined “The Fan Morning Show” during the guys’ broadcast at Steelers Training Camp on Thursday to talk about the team as they prepare for their second preseason game.
Taylor has loved what he’s seen from the young guys in the Steelers’ front seven.
“What I see, I like,” Taylor said. “Just the attitude, the body language… their willingness to work. That means a lot.”
When Jim Colony asked him about Emmanuel Sanders’ recent comments touting Peyton Manning’s work ethic as superior, Taylor shrugged it off.
“Emmanuel who?” Taylor said.
Taylor then offered a superlative for his own quarterback.
“Man, I don’t even get into that. We know what Ben brings to the table. There is no tougher quarterback than Ben. Ben fits the Steeler Nation. Hard-nosed, down-and-dirty, plays hurt, Super Bowl-winning guy. No disrespect to anybody else, but man, I don’t know too many other quarterbacks that got two Super Bowl rings.”
