I certainly was hoping for better from Cortez Allen. He's an alum of mine; come on and get it together!
Has the size but not sure if it is the instincts or speed but he's not it. I'll harp on it one more time, but what would this team look like had the Steelers kept Keenan Lewis, give Ike his pink slip and have Allen as the #2? I dunno how Allen did last night but he's ultimately > Cortez (and, IMO, Ike)
Kyle Fuller seems the exception to the rule. A 1st round CB likely has minimal impact next year for us. Justin Gilbert has looked pretty awful. Not sure about Dennard (he may lack playing time due to a really good Cincy D). I'm not harping on the Steelers drafting an ILB v. CB this year; who knew whether Spence would come back and Vince Williams wasn't a high-impact guy. But, I'm not sure a 1st round CB has the kind of impact next year that turns things around in the secondary.
I guess there is a chance for an uptick against JAX, and the world will be right again and so forth. But, it's downhill from there
