Notebook: Taylor beginning to do little things
Defensive backs coach Darren Perry said it was attention to detail, “little things” that contributed to cornerback Ike Taylor’s demotion in the defensive backs rotation, and he said Taylor has been practicing well since then. “I think it hit home,” Perry said. “It’s made him a little hungrier.” Perry also stressed that the Steelers haven’t given up on Taylor for the long term. “By no means have we lost faith in him,” Perry said. “We think he’s going to be a good football player for us.”
