Steelers, Tony Romo, Jim Nance discussed on Rush Limbaugh

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

You're listening to Russia's week in review. Also as I alluded to in the first hour today's exciting busy program. I'm going to try to explain what I think's going on with the fed what's really causing the economy of the stock market a tank, and I do not believe in his Trump. And I do not believe it's the shutdown. I'll explain it in a minute. But our caller wanna know why I thought of the Steelers gave look I don't want to be misunderstood and appear to be glossing over the officiating. It was horrible. That I pass interference call against Joe Haden on a I think it was fourth down play or third play long. And it would have forced the the saints to either. Punt kick a field goal. Don't remember which turned into a touchdown and Hayden didn't even touch the guy. The official was standing behind. It must've looked like he'd pushed off. But it was it was just a horrible call. I don't want. Anybody to think that I'm giving it short shrift on the on the last touchdown at the saints scored which was not ruled a touchdown. The receiver was coming back to the ball through the end zone. But he caught the ball right on the goal line. Sort it crossed the plane replay showed it to be a touchdown. What they didn't show. You is that offense receiver pushed off on Hayden. There was offensive pass interference on that play legitimate. And it was huge. But no camera angle caught it that's how big the push off was the aints receiver pushed this guy. So far off. One out of camera view. But that's not why they lost the game. Because those things happen to every team in every game. Whether they balance out or not over the course of a season or a few games. They do. However, you care to to judge it. But I'll tell you. There was one call in this, by the way, I have to tell you. I think Tony Romo is without question. The best new game analyst that has appeared on network TV since Chris Collins worth you've got you've got Troy Aikman's been there awhile with Joe buck. But this guy Romo knows when to shut up. He uses his knowledge as a player to actually tell viewers what to expect based on what he sees. He doesn't simply tell you. What you just saw. And then condemn it or approve it. He actually is into the game like fan. He does not have a professional broadcasters voice doesn't sound like Iran radio talking. You just a real guy. And it's his second year. He works with Jim Nance. Jim Nance is like, Al Michaels. Whoever works with them automatically seems better. Michael Jim Nance, make everybody working with them better. But but but Romo is rated he on this play. I'm talking about he called him. He said this play. Nobody's going to think of this play games lost. If this doesn't work it was a third into. And I think there were I may have the game situation. Four minutes. Four minutes or six minutes left. Third and two Steelers had the ball on their forty or forty two yard line. And there was no an and they they lined up telegraphing that they're going to run the ball off tackle to run a plunge play here which allowed the saints to bunch the box. There was no way this kid. Stephen Ridley the running back was going to gain two yards. There was no way third and two. They had been marching all day on the saints defense. The coach said there in four down territory anyway at that point in the game. They had a four point lead. They're trying to do two things. Run the clock. Maybe kick afield baller. Get another score. There was running that ball any stuffed and then fumbled. And. It was it was bad. Then the situation that was not the best. It was fourth and five and they call the fake punt. And they were short by yard similar similar game situation. I think the Steelers start trying to eat up the clock too soon at a four point lead. And they start running the ball right outta the locker room in the second half instead of continuing to pour on the juice, and they needed if every point they could get because the defense has been porous. You've got all of fame quarterback drew Brees on the other side and carve you up, but they held it. Pretty we only had one touchdown ask until the last the game. It was frustrated because the game could have been one and the Steelers had three or four these this season. That chipped away. But here's the thing. Folks every team that is played yesterday that got close to a playoff spot or secured one has won four of their last five or three of their last four or six of their last eight the Steelers lost for their last five. They're not they're not trending the right direction. Now for the Steelers the Cleveland Browns have to beat the ravens in Baltimore on Sunday. And the Steelers have to beat the Bengals both of which can happen. I think I think the Browns can beat the ravens, but we'll see. It was frustrating. Because if that if those two things don't happen in the Steelers are are gone, and there's such a such a great team for the league ratings TV.
