Morning take: Ike's big day?


Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North:

Morning take: This article is correct. These are the games that create stars. If Taylor shuts down Arizona Cardinals' receiver Larry Fitzgerald -- a tall order -- Taylor would quickly become a household name.

Morning take: Lewis learned a lot under Sharpe when the two were together in Baltimore. At the very least, Lewis will pay attention to Sharpe's words.

Morning take: It looks like the Bengals will get both their quarterbacks coach (Zampese) and quarterback (Carson Palmer) next season.

Morning take: This is the time of year when every player says this. My guess is, with a new coaching staff, Adams and many other in-house free agents will not return.
