Automatic TRANSCRIPT

To help Trubisky. The one thing about him is he's extending plays and he's using his legs. And that's great. But as you get into playoff football. I don't know that he's going to be able to lean on that as much down the stretch, but give them credit. I mean, they're right in the hunt. I mean have a chance now setting their at seven and three I'm to really, you know, put themselves in a position to potentially not only win the division, but possibly the push for for maybe getting a by down the stretch. Right. He was Stephen ESPN radio ESPN newsletter position to the AFC. Jason we see the Kansas City Chiefs. They seem to be the class of the AFC visit team by the name of the Pittsburgh Steelers have won six straight this seven two and one right now kids city just has just as many losses as the Steelers. Even though they beat the Steelers in week two of the season. What have you been seeing from the Pittsburgh Steelers as of late to attribute this success to and more importantly, do you think they're the legitimate bona fide threat to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl? Absolutely. There are threat. It's just such Pittsburgh fashion. You know what I mean and they didn't play. Well, they were rolling won five straight.

But down the. Stretch his ability to kind of make enough plays to find a way to get that win on the road. And those are the games you look back on you.

And as I said they played their best football this time of year. So there's certainly contenders. No question. What does it say to you? Oh, what should we all? I'll be saying about Mike Tomlin considering not just the fact that they played their best football this time of year, but the level of adversity. He's had to deal with because of the whole Levy on bell mess. That has transpired this entire season. What have you what what do you make of what might Tomlin has done in regards to that situation? What plays the history books? You know? I mean, Mike Tomlin does not calling plays a lot like when you talk about Sean Payton in Sean McVay, and some of these systems that are in place..
