"Extension has not participated in eighteen drills off season as the talks continue he attended otas and minicamp in training camp participated in meetings and individual drills but has not done any hitting while waiting for the contract extension to get finalized Mike tomlin steelers head coach. This quote. i remain optimistic that something's going to get done from a deal. Perspective that aside. I'm expecting him to practice tomorrow. that was from labor day talking about today. I'm proceeding with the assumption that he's going to practice tomorrow. That's kind of the approach i'm taking. He's missing time due to obvious reasons. But like i've also mentioned over the course of his of this team development process. I'm focusing very little on those. Who aren't working for whatever reason Not working. I tend to focus my energy on those who are so. The bengals have their own issue with jesse bates and the steelers have. There's with tj watt so That is as that. We'll see we'll see if the sort of arms race there in which team gets Dies sign i if at all and then of course overall the steelers have a clean bill of health her behind the steel curtain heading into week one against the bills which is a very very tough match-up initially so They need to be as healthy as possible. This this this is gonna be a tough one for him. So they they play steph onto it assaulted defensive lineman anthony mcfarland junior and zach banner on injured reserve. The steelers were hopeful to have everyone who was on the fifty three man roster healthy available to play in buffalo sunday so they are in pretty good shape overall. I think also. I mean the bengals have had their share of injuries there. They're in decent shape in terms of injuries at this point. Yeah trey wayne's josephus side those hurt but there were other times when i mean it was you know just gino atkins last year. Aj green the year. Before the i me it's just a mess so that's It's seems like pittsburgh's going into buffalo in good shape with everything there now. We're going to transition quickly to the nfl news. This is going long but we've got. We've had a lot to get to in a lot to talk about. This is the minnesota vikings and they released their week one unofficial depth chart. So i will share this here. Let's go down here. of course. The starters kirk cousins callum on the rookie is the backup running back. Alvin cook and madison is the backup there. Cj ham is the fullback wide receivers adam theline jefferson justin jefferson k j. Osborne amir smith are set the rookie there and dede westbrook a guy that maybe some people thought would be signing with the bengals at some point did not In free agency. So that's where things are their offensive skill positions. Let's go down to tight antilock. Conkland is their starter with the backups. Brand and dylan chris. Hurn ben elephants. They went pretty heavy at tight end. Light running back tackles reshad hill brian. O'neill dare saw in brandel dare has been dealing with some some injuries stuff. I believe So look i had someone. You guys were Asking me a little bit of. What do i make of the vikings in you know what what's going on that you see reshad hills getting a start over. Dare saw left tackle brian. O'neill blake brand also rashaad hill from what i understand. There's there's been some issues but He's capable it's it is i mean. Look that's that's a high pick for them to dare sauce sitting on the bench. So i mean they're having their issues to as cleveland was a guy i liked He's the starter at left guard. Bradberry was another guy liked recently And then only yudo. I looked up. tim up a little bit and just seen what guys and gals covering the minnesota. Vikings said about him he was a guy that kinda had been struggling a little bit in and all kinds of different things and then all of a sudden this year and he has looked like a completely different player and kind of ran without right guard starting spot and you see why it davis was another guy we you know. We all liked as well. The draft process talked about a lot. So you just kind of took it and ran with it so there are some names on here. The tackles the starting tackles are definitely lesser. Known brian o'neill in rashad hill. But they're interior cleveland bradberry. Yudo our names. It should be somewhat familiar. Yudo again was a guy that would you know there. A lot of huge expectations for him but he has played from my understanding pretty well in training camp for minnesota and took over that that spot there so On defense you've got daniel hunter Dj want him weatherly they resigned everson griffin and then they drafted patrick jones this year so griffin in there A guy that they had us out there laughed in the game. He kind of had some not-so-flattering words with For kirk cousins in terms of his play months ago the now he comes back so it's all interesting that works out. Michael pierced alvin tomlinson And then they've got sheldon richardson as a backup defensive tackle on this team and then you've got old friend nick vigil starting at linebacker Obviously some familiarity there with or at least there is there are traits. There that Mike zimmer likes out of out of vigil and so you've got. Anthony barr and eric hendricks guys who have been very good for a number of years at linebacker spots and then vigil. You've got blake lynch troy die another Another guy that was on and off the bengals roster for awhile. Chaz surat ryan connolly And then you've got the corners. Patrick peterson ba- freeland. Mackenzie alexander back with minnesota. After being in cincinnati last year kris boyd harrison hand cham dance ler On on the team here. so Harrismith xavier woods. Josh medalists and cameron bynum as the safety so a lot of familiar names. And that's kind of to be expected a little bit. With the mike zimmer connection but that's kind of a little bit of what the minnesota vikings depth chart in their starters and whatnot will look like on sunday as they take on the cincinnati bengals. There are some weaknesses on that offensive line to answer one of those questions that we received earlier in terms of minnesota by. There are some vulnerabilities. But it's not something that you know. It's like a complete total weakness. They have spent a lot of draft capital and sometimes to no avail to try and fix that offensive line. and so they're they're rolling with that christian. Dera saw their hypoc not suiting up at least at this point as a starter. So we'll see what happens there but it seems as if there are some areas particularly potentially the tackles that could be exploited if trey hendrickson ends up playing while if hodgson's up being more than just a preseason hero if sam hubbard gets in there and continues to play well we'll see we've got kind of a an interesting. I dunno funny. Panic quote from tom brady. He's still upset with the quote. Barry pointless jersey number changes The forty four year old On nfl dot.
"anthony mcfarland" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"To get him and then they let him go. I thought they traded him to. Miami differ nothing. Is this for dirt. Yeah and Anthony mcfarland running back for the pittsburgh steelers could be placed on i r might be the short-term i are but that is worth mentioning tyronn. Johnson from the chargers was cut so third round. Pick joshua palmer becau- joshua very interesting. Yes joshua palmer is not a player armed drafting. Because i just i don't i don't see a world where palmer comes in week. One year like holy crap. It's joshua palmer but third round pick that's that is excellent draft capital e. for a player He didn't have huge college production but he has a the opportunity. Is there now austin. Echo was on this show and he brought up the name of josh palmer so he somewhat to Just just move. That thought to the back of your bright. I think he is a guy that you're willing to drive. Yeah i think he could be one of those week one stars that you didn't see coming i i'm more interested in him than i'm interested in brian edwards right now so i if he if he mike williams can't stay healthy and even when he was healthy last year. You had big games from time and johnson. Big games from jalen guidon. So josh palmer is very intriguing. Because they're going to throw the football and cunanan has a specific type of role in this offense. Sure so i am more intrigued than you And more intriguing than you as a person. Just more intriguing in general especially after that opening story right. Yeah people were very into that. I'm just so sorry that you had to bear that burden yourself when you're going through it.

"anthony mcfarland" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"That i'm responsible for every day that the steelers practice where there's updates especially when there's fans in the stands we get so much more updates just because the reporters are allowed to say more than i then put a tracker. I put the the show in from steelers live that kicks off training camp. It's in the article whenever training camp practices done and they have their wrap up show. That goes at the end on putting all kinds of information in tweets in this article. Too basically where it could be your one stop shop for practice that day where you could go in and see exactly what's going on. I updated every few minutes on. It's a lot of work to stay on top of it. But i do it for you all and then also we turn around and give you this podcast as well for those people that are that listening on the podcast side but might not check out the website so we have all the information that we can get and today was a very interesting when it came to information. So i'll get to that. But i will say that. The steelers were back and surprisingly in pads. Today i know jeff said on yesterday's recap that he assumed that that was probably the last day in pads for the steelers but they were out there in pads again today. And if. I were to estimate why. I think that happened. It's because the steelers are trying to emulate an actual week. Even though the is on thursday and not the typical sunday and that is the came off there off on sunday. They went padded practice padded practice. Monday and tuesday tomorrow. Wednesday is what will soon as a non padded practice and it's not open to the public and then the steelers will travel to canton to be ready for the game. I'm pretty sure they are going to travel on. Wednesday and thursday have not seen an official report. But that's generally the the way things work in the nfl and with it being a night game they might do a walk through that morning or something so in order to try to make sure that players are figuring how to how a game would work a game leak would be. I think that's why they went with back-to-back padded practices. Now jeff will be back for the next recap. It's probably not going to be until saturday. Because like i said it's practices not open to the public wednesday thursday the hall of fame game fridays off day. I'm fairly certain. It will be back on saturday unless something changes with that schedule but it was very interesting today because there was not a lot of reports coming at the beginning of practice when the steelers took the field at approximately one thirty this afternoon and that was because art rooney the second was speaking to a group of the media at that time so therefore a lot of the reporters who would generally be telling us. Who's practicing who's not draft things of that nature. It took a while until that information started to come out because these reporters were still in in an interview with team. President art rooney. The second mike. Thomas had done his interview already. He did his typical tomlin tuesday at noon. A regular sit down press conference. That was really nice to see in here. And we have information on that at not only at behind the soccer curtain dot com but also the the post what i'd say the press conference wrap up or or however you wanna say i can't remember how it's phrased that jeff did earlier on our podcast platform. Hopefully you've already checked that out. But as they got doing with practice today it was. It was very interesting to see who wasn't wasn't practicing i. The steelers added a player to their roster. Just before practice it was announced. And that was running back. Tony brooks james if that means sounds familiar. It's because he spent time with the steelers in two thousand nineteen he appeared in three games had a handful of carries. I think it was seven carries for eight yards. Something like that. If i recall from reading that article earlier today he also ran ran back. Two kickoffs He was just three games with the steelers and then he was off again but he he was released last week by the atlanta falcons. So they brought him in and part of the reason that he was brought in might have been because for the second straight day. No benny snell. Not even that he was out there getting work in. But just wasn't you know fully dressed. He was not seen on the field for the last two days. Additionally neither was anthony mcfarland junior who apparently came up a little bit limp at the end of practice on monday so it makes sense that they might have brought in another running back. And then we're going to hear a little bit more about the running back situation as we progress through this other players that were not dressing once again. T. j. watt was doing his normal whatever. He's been doing where he's been working outta practicing at practice. But not actually practicing. With the team eric hebron once again missed practice. Zach gentry and ray ray mc lap. Sorry ray ray mcleod were also not practicing but on the on the good news zack. Banner was in pads again today and he did start off and the seven shots according to rafit a powder of the of the pittsburgh post gazette who said zach banners lining up at right tackle for seven shots. Dan more still at left tackle to that. Was the report coming out It's kind of funny because one tweet. I came across today. That that i actually got a kick out of was mark. Kabali says. let me describe a training camp practice for you. Drill drill drill stretch drill drill drill seven shots drills football plays drill drill drill that was remarkably of the atlantic. I got a kick out of that because it sounds like. That's really how things are going. The very first play of seven shots. That is as jeff said. Many times with offense gets seven. Tries from the two yard line. Defense is lineup to stop them. It's basically a two point conversion and it's who can win the most on the very first one unfortunately ben rothlisberger through an interception. Who did he throw to none other than outside linebacker. Alex highsmith okay. Then this starting offense bounces back with two touchdowns from ben rothlisberger after that wanted chianti johnson and wanna pat fair youth k There was conflicting reports on whether or not mason rudolph unit was one for two are over to some said. It was one for two sums. It was over two. And that's gonna make a big difference on who won seven shots the offense the defense but just had some conflicting reports there. but were they. What were the word. Conflicting reports was dwayne haskins. Had the last two shots and they went one for two with the final play being an interception by undrafted free agent market gilbert to finish up seven shots so according to most that was that the defense when the seven shots Still didn't get exact clarity on on the rudolf situations Bryan back. Go another one from the pittsburgh post gazette. He he said on twitter chase clayton. We'll just loves owning guys in one on one drills the other day he pancake justin lane at a blocking period. Now he just put traynor norwood on the ground with a stiff arm..

"Candidate might say. I'm never putting an offensive lineman unless we're in a goal line shore yard situation. You will never see an extra tackle on the field. Okay that's great. But if dan moore is gonna be quality depth there is he going to be another guy. That's gonna be inactive every week and they're gonna keep him on the roster because they wanna see what he can do. I don't know that he's going to get a lot of playing time on thursday night so keep an eye out for big in. That is his nickname. Not not dan. Mccullers big dan moore junior. You should know where. I'm going to go with this next player by now. Net is none other than dwayne haskins. I am excited to see what dwayne haskins can bring to the table. I talked about this in my recap on saturday all the sudden. It seems as if the steelers. Now dave scofield. We talked about this when he was at my house. He kinda disagreed and said remember. My tom and all he talks about is getting his team. Ready for the hall of fame game the players. That are gonna play the most. I am going to be really excited. Not just to see what dwayne haskins can do from a quarterback standpoint. But i want to see how the steelers handle the quarterback position does mason rudolph even play on thursday night and can't high or is it just masonry or is it just wayne haskins and joshua dobbs. That's a really good question that i'm excited to see. Also if they play mason rudolph. How quickly do they answered. Haskins the real telling the telling part of this. Preseason will not just be in this game. Because like i said in this game there are no starters if there are. They're very few. It's going to be in the second game. The third game in the fourth game mainly the second and third were. They insert haskins in then. Let's also not forget it. Also be a big player component of all this is. How does haskins play. Is he going to show flashes of what has been mainly reported as a very positive training cam or is he gonna show signs of how he played for washington is you're gonna have a tendency to turn the ball over. Is he a little bit more mobile kenny. Understand and run the offense all signs point to yes so far but that doesn't necessarily mean that that's exactly what's going to happen. So dwayne haskins is on my list for obvious reasons next. I go with player. That in twenty twenty was drafted and he did not have a preseason. He did not have anything. Other than virtual rookie mini vans virtual. Ota's virgil mandatory minicamp. And it wasn't a little training camp that he actually got his first taste of nfl action. He had signs and and there were moments where you could just see the potential coming from this player. It just seemed like he could never put it all together. It almost seemed like sometimes his eyes got so big and his feet got so excited that he tripped and fell on his face. If you don't know what. I'm talking about by now. It's anthony mcfarland. The running back just recently reported training camp. He busted a forty touchdown run. He is lightning in a bottle. The problem was last season is like i said nothing ever came together. I'm excited for him to get repetitions. You can't i. i'm sorry. But i am not buying into this fat this theory that just because he played some snaps in twenty twenty as a rookie that he is somehow seasoned as a football player. No in my opinion. This is the second half of his rookie season. Unless you're chase claimable or alex. Highsmith who played significant snaps. Now even throw kevin dotson into that category. These players are still learning about the nfl game. It's just the way that it is until because of the situation in twenty twenty. I'm really excited to see what anthony mcfarland brings. Does he bring a different dynamic. Does he bring that third down back or change of pace back. That fans are hoping for or is it not so much. It's really not that great. And what what we're gonna see is just another running back has speed became really hit the whole. We don't know we don't know we haven't seen it. We'll see if hopefully we can see what's going to happen with. Anthony mcfarland the former us university of maryland terrapin in the final and the fifth on offense. I'm gonna go with second round. Pick from penn state tight end pat firm youth fryer youth has been getting rave reviews as a pass catcher. We know he's athletic. We know he can run routes. We know he can catch the football. Everyone is heard this statistic where every single time his senior season that he was targeted in the red zone with a catchable pass. He caught the ball. This is not breaking news and this is not anything that said. Wow i didn't realize farm. You can catch the ball like this. No this is what he does. The question is can block at the nfl level. That's the question. Can you block the nfl level. He's going to be tested. He was abused in backs on backers drills or more than ones just on saturday they did the open-field a linebacker on tight end and alex smith had his way with him more than one account. He has work to do in that arena. I think he can learn. I think he can improve but pad farm us. I'm actually looking forward to just seeing him. Play how fluid does he look. Does he look he. Did they used to call him. Baby gronk i. That's i'm not putting that on anybody but at the same time i'm watching him and how. How does he look like. He's kind of gotten acclimated to the nfl in the nfl. Game until we shall see so those are my five offensive players who get out your pen and paper and write these down players to watch. According to jeff hartmann kendra green center. Dan moore junior tackle quarterback dwayne haskins running back anthony mcfarland and pat ferrari meath tight end out of those three out of the five or rookies. That shouldn't surprise surprise anyone. They're going to see a lot of playing time on thursday in can't know. Oh what about the defense in. What about some honorable mentioned players. We'll talk about ever. This breaks agent support for this episode comes from.

"On his. Like j cuba even have a projected that way and i do as well where between clay pool and juju i only have fifteen and still it puts them all inside of wide receiver twenty six. I think the past sisters where we were we. You and i are aligned. We just still think they're gonna pass allied. You have them dropped with the past. I had the pass attempts dropped. And i also have a lot more of the passes going to nausea harris rather than the james connor. And anthony mcfarland. Benny smell combination from last year. So i see. Nashi harris being a huge factor. In this offense which is gonna take away from the three wide receivers. A lot of those touchdowns scored were inside of the red zone. I see a lot of red zone especially when they get inside of the five going to nausea harris that we're going to the klay pool of last year. What do you have their pass attempts. At how many i see their pass attempts finishing right around six hundred with that extra week in there this year. Okay so that's a hundred and thirty two juju and klay pool. One fifty two johnson and eighty two to nausea. I see all three of them. Kind of eating at each other stats. I see nause harris getting a lot. More work in the passing game than people are expecting. And i just see both and all three of them sliding outside of the top twenty four. I think the big difference just based off like into my projections is so much. More of a comes off of hebron is what i ended up doing is docking ebrahim the most and then kind of aligning nausea. Like you said with the whole backfield as a whole and then kind of dispersing the the dock from ibran amongst everyone. Because i only have big ben for six hundred twenty pass attempts which as you know a couple of times per game basically if you only have six hundred so that number is not as big. I thought it was going to be honestly i. I'll be surprised if big ben can stay healthy this year. He's thirty nine years old. He's fresh off that injury elbow from two years ago. I don't necessarily see him making it like he. The offensive line is gonna let him get hit so much he's going to take more hits than we've seen before in as your body gets older in the nfl. Those hits add up a lot more than they used to when he was a young buck back in the day. That's where this comes in is big ben's health. It doesn't have anything to do about the talent at wide receiver about drops about touched on regression. It's whether big ben can stay healthy or not..

"There is an opening at that outside linebacker on the outside linebacker. Outside cornerback position. Can he take that job. And say cam sutton you were signed. But they knew they they're going to use you on the inside. Can he do it. I have to think that some of these players were drafted. Last season are just chomping at the bit to get an opportunity to show extended repetitions. Carla's davis anthony mcfarland. These guys didn't have a preseason last year and so that is going to be big. These games are going to be big. And we're gonna talk about the second half of the show this preseason willoughby a good test. We'll talk about that but let's get into these individuals so i said earlier. I don't think we've learned anything really about the team. But i do think we have learned even in this small sample size a lot about certain individuals and i broke this down four on defense. Four on offense. And i'm gonna just go one by one talk about the player why i feel like we've learned something about it and we're going to hash this out together so to start on defense. Wanna start on defense one of the individuals that i feel like we've learned about is antoine brooks junior someone. I brought up six round. Pick out of maryland. Twenty twenty nfl. Draft and. I have to be honest here. I didn't have really high expectations for anton brooks ginger coming in at twenty twenty one. This is a player that did not make the team out of training camp. Last year he was cut didn't get picked up. They sign him to the practice squad. He ends up getting elevated any sticks with fifty three man roster for the rest of the season but now all of a sudden they have him being the heir apparent their words. The media's words not mine the heir-apparent to mike hilton. He had a tremendous interception earlier in camp of ben rothlisberger. Keep that in mind. It wasn't mason. Rudolph or dwayne haskins joshua dobbs. It was ben in now all of a sudden he did get banged up a little bit on sundays workout. They said it's not serious. He's considered day to day. He should be fine but still antoine brooks junior. My goodness we've learned something about this guy but not just what we've learned about him we've learned about how the steelers are planning on utilizing him. Maybe i never thought as a safety when they drafted him. I was told that he was a box safety. Love to play the line of scrimmage. You did well. I didn't think that he was athletic. Enough to play the slide. We'll see we shall see arthur millette going to get a shot especially if brooks is out for a little bit. So we'll see. But anton brooks we have learned a lot about him as an individual cam sudden. Maybe cam sudden but how the steelers are going to utilize. We know cam. Sudden kim son's a veteran at this point to sign a new contract is second contract in the nfl. With the pittsburgh steelers in terra lawson spoke with media on sunday and he said that the plan right now is for the steelers to keep cam sudden on the outside. That's the plan. He's that kind of change. If there's someone like james pierre or just lane step up then they'll move cam back into the inside. He can play the nickel he can play. Time will see but as of right now that the steelers plan and we've all wondered this throughout the offseason. How are they gonna utilize cam sutton right now. He's opposite joe hayden as the as the number two cornerback or the other cornerback. Maybe don't maybe number one to here's another player on the defensive side of the ball. Roberts splaine now if i were to have written an article. When i didn't do this i thought about it. I thought it was in poor taste. And that's why didn't do it. If i would have written an article that said these and then number say four players. That benefited from the retirement of vince. Williams could have written that article. It would have probably done great and we'd probably a a lot of pages. But i said you know what now vince williams has been good with our site..

"Two receivers they have listed or deontay johnson and you just misused her then the next up sorry three waters was almost give chase klay poll the three wide receivers start so it's johnson chase klay poll juju smith schuster. So i don't know exactly. They didn't designate any one of them being inside outside how they would do it. So it's very difficult to tell their but those were the three then. They had james washington behind the andre. Johnson he was with the second group with ray. Ray mcleod and cody white. Then the third group was rico. I think it's seattle tickets bussey. I'm not sure. But that's whichever one it is. Isaiah mccoy and anthony johnson and then the fourth on the list was matthew sexton and tyler simmons so those are the wide receivers. Lots of everything spread out there. They we'll go after wide. Receivers will go to tight end. They only listed one and the order they went was first eric braun. Second pat firm. Uth doesn't surprise anybody. They're the only thing that's really interesting. Harris who was third and steelers had zach. Gentry's third kevin raiders fourth dax. Raymond is fifth. So that's the tight end running back to no one's surprise nausea harris's i he's listed as the first running back then. The order goes what they're starting off with is then it goes snell junior anthony mcfarland junior jalen samuels kaylin balaj. Now if you've noticed someone's missing from that list you're like wait. I thought i thought that was a six to one. There is now trae edmonds. He's actually listed as the second player on the depth chart at fullback behind. Eric watt now that simply could have been that they didn't really want to go out to a six level at running back but also you have to remember. That treatments did play some fullback. When derek wall was injured last year not a lot but then again there. What didn't play a lot. Either in the steelers offense. So that's interesting. Let's go to the offensive line because we're gonna we're going to save the big one for last offensive line for the five spots. Were pretty much. We knew what they were going to be. Left tackle was chew chor. Four left guard kevin dodson right tackle zach banner. Right guard trae turner. What's really interesting for. The steelers is at center. They have jc hassen hours. The first team kendrick green is the second team and bj vinnie vinnie. Third in that group so chances are half an hour might be the name there because he started games for the steelers last year at that position. I don't know but it is interesting that it was half an hour and not finney. That was up there. Now when it comes to be j finney. He actually is on this list twice because he's as the third string center and he's also listed as the as the second team left guard behind kevin dotson. So let's go through these position about position on the line and left tackle. It goes to core for dan moore chaz green of collins at left guard. It's kevin dotson. Bj finney brandon walton center. I already said about do it again. Jc hassen our kendrick green and bj. Finney right guard trae. Turner rashad coward. Anthony coyle right. Tackle zach banner. Joe hague john naghlu so those are the offensive line the way it sits right now so if you were to look at that and just merely for the guys during the first two groups there's ten different players they're the steelers will probably keep nine guys so that's probably the best way. Look at it now. Let's go the last position on offense one. You might be waiting for not because of the top. Because how it goes afterwards quarterback the list goes ben rothlisberger mason rudolph d'alene haskins joshua dobbs so if we were wondering i was one personally that i wasn't ready to put haskins ahead adopt until i saw him on the field the steelers they have haskins down there. It might just be based on what they're planning to do the first week or that could be where he really is. We will see when the season rolls around or as the preseason gets deeper. Now let's go ahead and jump into the defense trying to keep this shortest possible. It's very interesting. How the steelers do the defensive line. They listed with three different positions defensive..

"Candy. I didn't think we'd go this. Far with gordon on the mighty ducks but oh man. I love that movie. It was when i was a kid growing up. I loved hockey and was okay anyways. Let's let's get this trained back on the track sally. It's get the trolley moving in the right direction illegal garrett says he's until we can definitely conclude the days with the whole. It's not really. Because he was here he'd be yell yeah he would be challenging for sure. All right okay. Let's let's talk about the headline of this episode. Which is sleepers. I was thinking about this. We tossed around. Some ideas are slack channel. About what are we going to talk about tonight. And what about players. That might really be a big part of this football team but aren't really being talked about a lot. We could go a bunch of different ways with this. You can justify a lot of players. But i would say that someone like benjamin todd rothlisberger even najji harass. People are talking about them. That's not a sleeper. That's not something that's going to sneak up on wild. Where did this guy come from. Never expected this. We have a list. We both have a list and we're going to go through these players. Say who is going to be asleep. I just thought of another one down there all right so brian no particular order. You're gonna start on offense or defense. Let me start on offense again you know. Look at all these wide receivers at the have and we can get into the conversation to the steelers have a true one. I don't care. I'm talking about the talent that they have makes them a one when you combine them all. It does not matter to me. Gone are the days of fourteen touchdowns by one dude and dominating. Mr mr abie mr. What did you guys call. Third and fifth which i always hated that nickname mist mister. Third and fifth. You know gone those days you. This is a stable and in the stable. There's one guy that when he gets his opportunity he's always comes up huge but it sparingly and it's james washington our good friend grandpa strong so i'm bringing up number thirteen when i say that he could be a sleeper that goes to the next level this year because his contract. We'll be up this year and we're talking about how jujubes playing for another contract again. You have a guy in chase claypool that is looking to send to the top of the mountain. Make a big jump from one year to and you have deontay johnson. That has a lot to prove this year. But he's he's on the radar. That's the thing these are guys. That aren't really on the radar. And when you don't wanna do you think of all those guys you're not going to put. You're really not putting james washington in the top three. Now he has talent. He has tons of talent he is strong. He's a fighter. he's a clutch guy. But if he comes out strong in the first few weeks of the season and bettas trusting them maybe one of those other guys gets an injury he can put up a year. That would really would. Rival would rival the rest of the team as far as the of the stables wide. Receivers in i would be really comfortable in saying that. He's going to get a big contract in free agency if he has a good year. So i'm picking james washington as one of my top sleepers yay sadly. I feel like he's gonna need an injury at a wide receiver to get a good opportunity but Yeah the other day on twitter. You can follow me on twitter handle underneath my screen. I just put out a random question. Is who do you. Think's more receiving yards. James washington pat farm youth in. It was shocked. I was most eight hundred. i think. Eight hundred votes or something like that and It was like fifty four percent just for james washington. I thought i was going to be much higher. Give a lot of people that were. Because i mean think about it. How often are you gonna be on the field unless they run four wide receivers out there and when you have two tight ends it can play and you're trying to run the ball more. You're probably not going to do that too much. I just. I think that that's the best chance that he has to get A lot of playing time as if someone gets banged up ahead of him. Maybe i don't hope no one gets hurt hard for me. My i prefer going offense. I is none other than whoo kenny. Woo anthony mcfarland. Even i've heard things about that movies. You brought it up anyways If you've been following behind the curtains coverage of oj's where we take videos from twitter and we kind of put them all together and keep updating it. There's been a lot of videos of running backs. Why because they've run their drills right below the balcony where the media are ends. We've got an up close and personal look at a lot of these running backs whether it's najji harass you getting a lot of eyeballs on him but also anthony. Mcfarland has not missed a workout yet. He is looking really really fast. The nets never been an issue with him but he just looks a. He looks like he's that change of pace back that the steelers could really really use you. Think that everything that nausea harris does well. You know you talk about his vision. His lateral quickness his burst. His size is strength. It's all great. There's only one thing he doesn't have breakaway speed. Anthony mcfarland has that breakaway speed. And so. I think that this is a guy that last year..

"And i think that's a huge mistake that people make and number two would be going for too much floor at the back into your draft and just saying well you know he he. Jason witten might catch a couple a passes every now and again and then i think that's. That's a losing strategy. You wanna go for guys who might rise up aboard throughout a preseason throughout throughout training camp if they start getting hype one of the examples. I keep throwing back to his last year brandon. I was basically free for six months. And then all of a sudden in august deebo samuel. It was obvious he wasn't going to be back. He starts moving up the draft board. I'm always going to buy on young players. Who have some talent over some aging veterans towards the end of my draft. That's not to say that those veterans don't have a place but i always want to draft upside at the end of those drafts and and i'm willing to bite the bullet on it on guys like anthony mcfarland for the steelers. By the way this past year i draft didn't necessarily work out. I am not going to regret that drafting a younger talented player. As opposed to an older guy who you know like a frank gore who might get ten carries game. But what's he gonna do with those carries a m- never regret doing that. I will always take the upside swing over the the boring veteran who even on his best day probably ends up in my flex spot.

Steelers’ Perfect Season Comes to an End With Loss to Washington
"Or game tonight. The undefeated steelers hosting the washington. Football team ben. Roethlisberger and alex smith go and head to head. Second quarter all steelers early. James washington to catch the steelers while received some of the best in the business with run out the catch all been has to get the ball in their hands. They know exactly what to do with it. Fourteen nothing pittsburgh. Meanwhile from the comeback player of the year alex smith. That's the last thing we want to see bleeding profusely after being cleared. It's the other leg to quick nap. Critical moment final seconds of the first half of the clock. Ticking down. Alex smith getting sacked on a third-down play. No timeouts left the trying to run the field goal team out but the clock is going to be stopped by the officials and this may have been sneaky from alex smith. this sneaky. good better and move by. Alex realized that he doesn't have any time outs left and if they used the ball in play to probably not going to be able to get the feel law so retards off with the football. They got to stop the clock in the points. Before the you take a look. Ron rivera's yelling everybody's yelling but we're going to show it to you here. Watch alex smith again. Sneaky veteran move the official saying. Give me the ball. Alex smith is saying. I got other ideas. He takes that one himself. They have to look. He's laughing he knows. Exactly what is doing common knows what he's doing and in the end it results in three medical points. Dustin hopkins forty nine yards. It's up it's good. Fourteen three at the have a little momentum shift now oakland drive of the third smith. Watch cam simms. This might have been the biggest play for the washington football team in this game. And don't just take my word for mike. Tomlin talked about this after the game. Felt like he was a real turning point thirty yards on the catch and run a big first down in that would lead to this. How about logan thomas to the one converted quarterback out of college logan thomas with some great hands being able to get down to the one he's really turned into a professional title. They were punching in premier. So fourteen steelers fourth quarter at seventeen ten at smith. It's thomas wide open worldwide. That's a busted covers right there but don't fault the waas to football team alex smith to taking advantage of the miscues by the steelers. So we're all even now the steelers of a fourth and one on the twenty eighth. They're kick chris. Boswell is out the rookie. Matt right is there. And so mike tomlin elects to go for it a throw was to anthony mcfarland his miscue there and the washington football team takes over on downs and that leads to. This happened this catch. This is a big time catch right here by camps and being able to survive the ground one handed grab pressure situation. Can't do it any better than that. That's a big first down later in the drive. Dustin hopkins from forty five away at the first looks. It's going to hook but then it hangs and it's good to washington up twenty two seventeen but mike tomlin had used his timeouts. Well they will going to have plenty of time. But there's no time when this happens a no deflections your the game washington. Football team's defensive line. Being able to get their hands in passing lanes four passes from that group to reaper. For montesquieu it'll be no perfect season. Washington wins

"Saturday night toda's pod talking fantasy football here at a mazer jamie is. They got a lot of questions we figured might as well. Just do this podcast. Hopefully we'll help you give you some good advice fingers crossed. There's a lot of question marks out there right now. Jamie let's go Situation by situation first of all if you don't have a commissioner who a nice enough to let you substitute steelers ravens if the game gets canceled. Do you just basically have to say or. Do you think they're gonna play that game. I think they're going to play that game. But obviously there's you know positive tests positive cases popping up with the steelers Today obviously james conner being the the big one so if they get more positive cases the game could obviously be in jeopardy. But i mean we've seen with the nfl's done so far. They've tried to push through as much as they can. And so if they have enough healthy body on both. I mean no. We're going to talk about the situation over. There never would have met and they're gonna play this game on tuesday. I hope so. Yeah i mean. I hope we get that game in. It's going to be tuesday night as of now okay. So let's talk about that. Ravens steelers game he goes. Yes picking up. Benny snell was a very good idea. Anthony mcfarland might not be a terrible idea also because connors going to miss two games right i think so it's it's clearly not defined yet but the fact that they play five days after playing tuesday i don't think he's going to be able to play against washington in week. Thirteen okay so ranks running backs in that game. Now snell edwards mcfarland justice. Even though we'll jail see tip about justice hill yeah. I just think you know that.

"We're winning games that you look at it and say there's it's not working for the offense, but the decent defense steps up. You're perfect through eight games. I'm just wondering, Um Are they a shaky ate it all or are there really strong eight? No, in your opinion? You know, I think a lot of people look at the last three weeks and say, OK, there ain't no but there are non elite team because they struggled. Wouldn't teams away, But then you have to rewind a little bit. Take a little bit of closer. Look, we're talking about a Tennessee team. Three weeks ago where Tennessee was playing extremely well the time and they got off to a big lead, was able to hold off in the second half team on the road. Uh, two weeks ago. Baltimore. You know, 14 to last year, the best team he is. He was able to hold them off with a late Charge in the end, And then last week you're looking at A gauntlet of three straight games on the road. They probably let their foot off the gas a little bit against the Cowboys, and they didn't play as well as they did. When you look at the big picture here, it might look like an weapon team. They play some decent teams here all on the road. I mean, before that comes speaking. They played Cleveland. Cleveland was playing in the high level at that point as well, So as you said they could win in the different variety of different ways through they can put up 30 points a game, which is basically done. I think they're averaging 28 where they couldn't beat you. With their thief. Fans taken one The ball went occasionally. Robert works could beat you or their defense with your curly shirts you out and make you look forward, But there haven't been dominant from start to finish. Yet, like some of the top teams in the area here in the NFL has been so I think that's why they're getting a little bit of a bad rap. I think they're very, very good. They're playing very well and playing well defensively, I guess if there's one thing where they do seem susceptible, it's the run, particularly the run up the middle. And I think a lot of that is the fact that Tyson Ah Lalo Is not answering. The bell has been heard. What do you think His status is for this game today? And how much has his absence hurt them in terms of trying to stop the run tremendously and If you'd have told anybody who covered the Steelers that six months ago, there were a lot. We laughed in your face. Because this is a guy who would just be, you know, a veteran Backed up. He sent the van for the past three or four years. They moved him to nurse Paco after Stephen Heart race time. 40 years $40 Million deal with the Eagles and people were scratching their heads saying, Like whole, although I was gonna be playing another tackle for the guys, Absolutely fabulous. And, uh, even a big tear them stopping the wrong as well. As you know, there's a fortune. You know her three games now, and they're trying to get acclamation with Robert's pulling in linebacker brought in answering Williamson to, um, my Children. Tunney, slot player. He's been up two weeks now, but he had a tremendous run stop, and I think that's been an issue as well. Pressure. They play some decent run teams with Baltimore, obviously, and Dallas was helping and trying to run the other day and wealth. You definitely need to clean it up. It's been really an issue the past two weeks, and if they get all the hollow back, I mean, he's probably a game time decision. I think that would go a long way. Yeah. Yeah, it'll be interesting for 25 Start. Both of these radio stations will carry it mark a body. Read Amies in Hey, is the guy in Pittsburgh? At the athletic dot com Great, Great website. Mark.

"The offense went empty backfield and let Roethlisberger call his plays at the line of scrimmage. And that's when things really got going for Pittsburgh, and it looks like they're doing the same. Early in this game from the Cowboys. 49 2nd three shotgun snap Robin's burger for the pocket. Throw short underneath and cutting right to left is to juice this Schuster and he's run out of bounds by Travon digs, but enough for a first down in a game of six to move the sticks for the Steelers and you mentioned last week. Then they trailed. 17 7 behalf with this no huddle found a rhythm for Roethlisberger. The Steelers offense? Yeah. He was four of 10 in the first half. And when ended up going 17 out of 22 in the second with two touchdowns with him, operating and executing that offense with his own decision making 1st and 10 at the cowboy 44 left shotgun snap Robin's burger throws and slipping in the backfield catch made by McFarlane dancing in space.

"So those steers responded by going no huddle going into empty, spreading them out, letting those great receivers win space and it was affected. I think just to go bring a full circle to the original question. Dave like this is a good offense. It's an efficient offense. It's an offense that I think might not be built to, like put together an explosive plays. Certainly not to the tune of Kansas City. Andi. I do wonder. I do question whether or not how effective they would be if They were to say, fall behind to the Chiefs, but I think right now it's operating at like the highest level like that. It can. I mean, listen, that counts as some mild pessimism. I think to say that this is as good as the offense can be. I hold out hope that you know that the kid from Marilyn Anthony McFarland, who is one touch, but I mean so excited. He was like, Oh, no, you know, play. Couldn't you say could you got off the train in the classic? The classic thunder and lightning? I don't know. James Caan accounts is thunder, but I I feel like you know, that guy maybe has a role. Maura Maura. And I also think that Matt Canada, with all the Jets sweep action. He may not be the original originator of it in pro football, But you know, he really was doing that stuff in college and in the NFL. And maybe that we'll start to see more of that. I don't know if we will. I think that's arrived A couple of times you've seen a little bit of and it's and it's made a difference for the team. Andi irony is for any longstanding FC fan is. How did Dick Lobo's? What was the kryptonite to Dick Lobo's Blitz? Heavy defense? It was Tom Brady just know we have here. It made me crazy that this was like the Steelers. The events look at what we did to Joe Flacco, like, Come on. We know how this story ends. Tom Brady. If we see them in the postseason, we know it's got. Why do we continue to roll this? But now they did basically that all right. You want to you want to throw every It was crazy, though, in the first half an early part of the second half when they would have literally two guys unblocked. Just overload one side of the line. And just like poor rock. This burger is ridiculous. Andre figured out. They spread it out, and the rest was history there. Conversely, Lamar Jackson people say Like, Well, you gotta admit that they they got lucky. And now one look at the numbers of that game, saying, OK, Dave, the woman who works in national sports talk the whole all week.

"Of the 42 yard or the 38 yard line. I beg your pardon by Claypool. Darius Slay makes the stop of 16 yards for the Steelers. About what do you take away from the 1st 15 minutes of the afternoon's game. Well, these defense's are living up to the billing. Thus far, we outside of the one long run for Philadelphia. They had zero yards rushing and just just impressive from these output from these defensive on both sides of the ball. Good job by clay Chase Claypool Right there, He's going to get more opportunities with Deante Johnson on the sideline Chase. Claypool is going to get more opportunity in this game.

Connor cross midfield and past the Eagles 40 yard line. Big Chunk play for James Connor. Pain of 26 yards on the Kerry, Robi Coleman and Marcus EPPS finally stopped Connor from getting totally loose on the play. And there it is again. You you fake the action of the jet sweep, and Philadelphia is stretching, working to keep the edges contained. And it allows James Connor to run really almost a belly right through the heart of that Philadelphia defense for a nice game. Complementary football. My mistake. Seven carries 35 yards now, for Connor's alone, setback will go to him again. Hand off running right side breaks the tackle toward the right sideline and forced out of their losses balance. And a backward somersault. The play on a gain of three the hard way for James Connor. You saw the tight ends work up to the second level of the Philadelphia defense there, but they they went past all of the pursuing linebackers from inside out. That was a good individual effort by Connor there to pick up some yardage because he was under heavy rush.
