"antoine brooks" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Steeler fans. It this time once again for no not the curtain call. We have officially made it to actual football and with it the return of know your enemy. I'm not joined by jeffrey benedict tonight. Who is on vacation. But i have a very special co host of course tate from the no. All's podcast tate joined up ryan. Anthony davis. i believe it was the tales from two. Am podcast a couple of days ago. So welcome back to behind the steel curtain. How you doing tonight thanks michael. I'm doing well man. I mean. I love watching you and jeffrey every wednesday the curtain call. And before that you know when the season was in know your enemy so you know i'm ray just to talk some. Footballs steelers cowboys. And whatever else you might. Matt love it and appreciate you checking out the show before once again for those. Who don't know who i am. Of course my name is michael vick. Deputy editor bondsteel steel curtain dot com. And we're working on all things. Pittsburgh steelers were staus cowboys. Preseason week one. I guess preseason weeks zero technically for the hall of fame game but tate. We made it through the off season. How excited are you have actual life football back on the tv. Starting tomorrow thursday man. I'm just. I'm ready so ready for it. Man i mean the way. We went out last year against browse at first playoff game. Learn even though he that losing streak to end of the year and we were weller one of our last four games. I mean loss of our last five. Gangs say you know. I had high expectations for the play offs. And for my football to just be zapped away so quick and so unexpectedly. This has been long time from january to august. And now we've and then last year we have a preseason of like all over the place so just getting back to the to the structure of of a real. Nfl season at us. How extra preseason game this year getting the see. I'm anxious to see knives. Even for just one series and dwayne haskins and in james pierre these guys that are making name and campus leisa for makes the same on the gridiron. Yeah you know when you mentioned the playoff loss is kind of drug this playoff or this off season out longer to me it. It just seems like everyday taken a little bit a little bit more a couple more minutes feels. They added on at the end of every day to kind of stewing on that terrible defeat but football's finally back in a shot. Redemption for the steelers of course the hall of fame game. You don't get your ben- roth this. Burgers tj watt. I'd be certainly surprised if he partook. It's patrick of course. What are you most excited for. Even though the big names aren't participating what are you looking for to the most when The game kicks off thursday night. Well i think i think you know. We're we're hardcore football fans. We've been watching this and this longtime preseason all those things oh so we know the big names aren't gonna play. We may see those guys for two quarters in third preseason game you know but like i mean i think i think we just have so many the new system the new off of lying. You know the matt canada's play calling given the oil prices vary vanilla in the preseason. We'll get some idea of what of what is going to be like. You know being under center you know. Hopefully the majority of the time and handing the ball off at least fifty percent of the time. We hope i mean get some good balanced going. So and you know i'm i'm anxious to see antoine brooks. I think he'll. I think i think he could be a potential replacement for mike. Hyun i mean. I know i know. Melendez savvy batteries. More of the cover guy and if son had to go to the inside he'd be more of a cover guy too thick. I think brooks just breeze that size and that physicality internati to that position that i think pittsburgh is used to from that spot. I think for me what i'm looking forward to. The most is basically how infrequent we've seen the back half of the twenty twenty draft guys like the carlos davis's really anthony. Mcfarland wasn't big draft class because of no preseason last year. Didn't get to watch these guys so now like antoine brooks also stated like. We're actually going to see these guys on the field in a bigger role than we've ever seen them. So i'm interested to see what those guys can do. And of course All all the new acquisitions that found their way onto the team this year. But with it there's a ton of pretty exciting position battles the depth chart battles going on here in training camp. Of course all the quarterbacks kind of vying for that number two spot and then the number three spot still aren't carrying four guys. That's just basically a wasted roster spot at that point which one of these position battles you can looking forward to the most and do you think it could be settled in preseason games. I think i think the easiest one is saying would be quarterback. But i'll stay away from the obvious one so i think i think the position that i'm looking for is and i'm pretty sure i'm pretty sure the middle line by like like who are we to keep five guys. Are we just going to keep four. Depends on the outside linebackers. At say i know jamir jones is having a nice little camp from self. But it really depends. I think typically the carry nine total when it comes to outside and inside linebackers it depends which way the five chefs that usually goes back and forth. So if i'm if if i'm thinking about bad i mean i don't i don't i don't know how shake out but i'm thinking caches marshes. Maybe gone. I mean because i think i think Number number twenty marcus. Marcus allen and yuji. Three and with drafting buddy giles. Nothing those guys bring so much versatility you know for special teams and you know just just dying dime heavy packages and things like that. I think they offer a lot of security. And i think we i think rochet can be good. He's still young. But i think i think i think he should already surpassed marshland on the depth chart as now so if we have four strong edge rushers three superstar edge rushers and one that's talented but still young needs to be grown in. He'll be in a room with a lot of great guys you know. If he's some of the work ethic from tj and in an alex highsmith man. We'll be onto something so if we keep nine backers i have to think maybe marshes the odd man out right now. Yeah i can totally get on board with that too. And one of the factors when it comes to those rounding out of the depth charts is going to be special teams especially from the outside linebacker room. We know melvin ingram. He's not gonna play special teams. Tj awad outside smith. They're just playing on defense..

"But yeah. I mean it's kind of vague that's exciting. That's that's like coach tomlin one. Oh one right there. Well he doesn't have to say anything about injuries deger specific as he wants. Yeah maybe it was just me that. I thought that that was interesting. That it wasn't say none. I mean you would imply that. He was talking about an injury but he doesn't really say it's interesting balaj ballots. Whatever you wanna call. I think i have him on the list. Because i think he's going to be something to watch. He's yeah everyone's been talking about him since mandatory minicamp. Let's go to defense brian. He got on defense to watch buddy. Johnson i wanna see what this guy has right. Yeah absolutely i mean he. He'll probably play the entire second half so you'll see a lot. I want to see him too. That's a given. What about you dave defender. Can i give you two well. We're gonna go around again but you can cut say too. I said this on the scarborough show. This is what i want to see. I want to see cam sutton. And james pierre as the to outside corners. Both of them out there at the same time to get more of a sample size. And then i'd like to see him. Switzerland's that's what. I'd like to see see them each work each side to of that of of just seeing what you have in your in your starting who could be starting outside corner because why not. I mean if you're saying they're both going for the for the same position doesn't mean that you have to leave one of them on the on the bench while the other ones out there because you wanna both in that same side of the field. I'd like to see both out there at the same time and just kind of see how things work. So that's why like to look at now. I had james my list for sure and someone that i wanna see. But i don't know. Did he practice. The antoine brooks junior practice today. Dave i did not have him as if someone not practicing that i can remember. I'd have to double check here. He's one that if he's playing. I really want to see what he can do because he deb. That hit me like a ton of bricks. When i found out that he was getting the first shot at mike hilton his job. In the nicholas. What antoine brooks junior reportedly. He's lost weight he's improved. His athlete is his speed his agility. He's a lot lighter I wanna see what antoine junior do people forget. This guy didn't even make the team last season at a camp. He was cut signed to the practice. Squad promoted unstuck. So i'm gonna say anton books junior brian. Do you have anyone else on the defense side. The football you're looking forward to seeing quincy rochet hugh from the year. I wanna see this guy. I think he's a dynamic. Pass rusher and i think he's the kind of guy that could have multiple sacks in the preseason. I mean granted. He might be he might be the yuji three with just a lot of action because you three had a lot of a lot of sacks and a lot of tackles that year but he was laying a good bit of the two thousand nineteen preseason. I would think hugh gets a lot of actions. Well has anyone heard. I did say that bob route liberal pumped up cue from the you a little bit in a post practice pros camp video. I have not heard a thing about him. Otherwise anyone anything. Because they're all focused on ingram and highsmith remind get it. I've heard more about Who's the guy that ah jones jamir jamir and i have quincy rochet. It's just weird. That's all i'm sentences. Weird latinos picks. You wonder if the steelers are trying to not make him be noticed as much. Because you know you've got to remember this is the preseason goes on some of these guys at the steelers think are but they don't think they have room for they might wanna not highlight so much in order to get them on the practice would see i look at it. See my conspiracy theorist mind goes the other way i see bob lab arreola as a steelers employees like we drafted this kid. Someone's got to say something good for us. We're going to look like a bunch of idiots of likely iowa. Go ahead dave's did you have another one. I mean i said to before. I could save more honestly. I would like to see you know. I think miles gilbert is gonna get to play an awful lot of strong safety. He's been getting a lot of work with the ones because we found out yesterday that we know before the throw. Edmunds had had surgery obstacle. I am so we know that now that that's why kill has been getting a lot there and which is interesting because i don't know if he's a guy that they even considered for that slot position but because he's playing in place of edmonds. He hasn't had the chance yet if you know what i mean. It's really interesting. Because you brought that up about brooks. It sounds like i wonder if they're not. They might not even want to run the same player in the slot all the time. Because are they wanting to do use the slot as a mike hilton type slots or they actually wanted to use the slot as more of a coverage slot not more like a slot backer as some people have said. I mean if you want someone that's more that's more like a linebacker can blitz help with the run and can can take the short acting routes that makes sense that that they would look for. Someone like antoine brooks junior. But i just want to have an idea of who was. You could possibly see their well. That's one of the person on my list. Is arthur let of like the forgotten free agent acquisition. No one talks about arthur maleta. I i kind of really started to enjoy what he brings to the table at least on paper on film on jeffrey benedict did is film room breakdown when they signed him. What is arthur millette. Bring to the steelers defense. You can google that and you'll see his article look it up. He breaks down the film when he was with the new york jets. He could play the slot. He can play safety very versatile. And i heard mega fitzpatrick talking about in the other day after practice saying that they meaning brooks and millette are two different completely different players that bring completely different components to depositions. Dave i agree with you. I wouldn't be shocked if they have. I guess you wanna call the big nickel and a small nickel where this sly defenders do. Different things do different things. Okay all right very good any anyone else that we haven't mentioned that you're looking for scenes. I don't know some someone from peter gallery. I was trying to find the mute. Can and we're back to control your kids brian. All right anyone else. You're excited to see play on thursday. Could be offense defense yoohoo. I'm going to say go ahead. No just go. And i'm special teams. Let him go. Yeah.

"Starting job is just a good thing Getting the cream to rise the top pushing one. Another to be better. The steelers will have some competent quarter play across from joe haden that slot kohner spot though is going to be interesting because really the guys they have on roster i suppose antoine brooks is a little bit more physical and it's kind of one of the guys in the running but i think the steelers defense will need to change touch because cam sutton's not a bulletin guy. I don't really know arthur. Let to be a blitzer as well. So that inside corner position is another one to keep your eye on and something that i'll i'll definitely be watching for certain the other thing on the defense that i wanted to bring up that they need to do better and do well to be successful in the playoffs. Specifically here is make place in twenty twenty against the browns. They didn't have single sack. They they let up a ton of big plays. Obviously there's a bunch of injury concern. So i get why it happen but still twenty seventeen against the jaguars. The steelers safeties were abused by blake. Bortles the steelers defenses crumbled in the playoffs. The last couple of times the the pittsburgh steelers have got there. They need the defense to make some plays compla- off time if this unit can be as good in week one as they are in the wildcard round divisional round conference title super bowl. They have a shot of having a decent little run for themselves but the defense cannot shrink the half to rise to the occasion they have to rise to the moment and they just simply have to be better especially in crunch time. Special teams also needs a little bit of a shout out here but we can keep it fairly quick for chris boswell. He just needs to continue to be consistent he. He's been good the last couple years after struggling mightily in two thousand eighteen. So that's good. He two straight years of being mr consistent. He's i believe he's been the most accurate kicker when you combine those two years in a row across the nfl and that includes justin tucker so that's big. He needs to continue that punting wise. I just really need to see presley harvard. Make sure he beats jordan berry. Know what you get in jordan berry when the weather's decent but when it gets cold like it doesn't pittsburgh around wintertime. He has crumbled year in and year out presley. Hard on the third needs to be a better punter than jordan berry here. When jordan bears typically good that way the steelers could have some more consistent putting as the year goes on and gets colder. So i wanna see presley hard on the third. Make sure to be jordan berry straight up out of training camp outside of that Cameron candidates gotta just continue being consistent snapping the ball and rear mcleod. I'd i'd love to see him take a punt or kick for a touchdown. He was close many times last year but didn't quite get to the end zone but if he can make the team i just wanna see him remain consistent as a good kick returner that we've found out that he truly is outside of that. That breaks down each and everything that i wanted to touch on. For what the steelers need to do to be successful team and a championship caliber team. Here in twenty twenty one. So i wanna thank you for tuning in today's edition.

"Sure ben. We'll have a full practice on wednesday in front of fans if for an injury update because jc has now has been banged up. Bj phidias left practice. Most recently antoine brooks junior on sunday. He had a minor injury. That's what it was labeled. Mike tomlin kind of gave an injury. Update bremmer folks. He does not have to give any updates at all in the preseason. Not until the regular season does he have to put out on the steelers organization as an official injury report. But here's what tomlin said had a number of guys at nissim work for a variety of reasons. Most of which we've been talking about. He's i gave ben rothlisberger the day off for personal reasons. He's been excused by me. We look forward to getting back tomorrow. Other guys that are working their way back getting back to us. We'd expect those guys to be back in a short number of days so there you have it from the head coach himself. Mike tomlin speaking of pat farm. Ethan tight ends. He was asked can he block. He's already shown his athleticism he's already shown his ability to catch the ball run. Good routes he said quote. It's hard to show. You can block with only helmets on. My job is to make catches in block ends and block linebackers. I've had a good couple of days but the real work starts tomorrow. The pads go on. And i've got to prove i can block defense events so pat farm youth. I mean the sounds like a pretty humble kid. We'll put it that way. We'll put it that way. So in iran during his session he was asked basically or he was asked about. Hey you know what do you think about. And she's me what. What do you think about like run blocking. He's said look that they don't they being the steelers. They don't draft a running back in the first round to have our tight ends not block so in other words when they drafted nause harris first overall we have to understand we are going to block and he was then given a follow up question which was how do you feel like you blocked last season and would you have to become a better blocker. Here's what he said. Quote absolutely. I feel that was something. We were all terrible at last year as you saw in a lull in the running game period as a complete unit off offensive line and tight ends. I feel like we all should do better including myself. Yeah if you want to get paid and you want to perform and you want to be amongst the best you've got to be able to block. Yeah that's a pivotal part of our focus this year and so eric hebron along with the tight end group are really putting it that emphasis on blocking on improving the running game. It's alfredo robertson. You tight ends coach. We've heard from canada from adrian klemm. And we've heard it all the way up the coaching staff. And even to our rene the second team president. They are focused on blocking and getting the running game going. We'll see if that plays out or not. And i think tomorrow wednesday is going to be a step in that direction. One way or the other. We will be here for you. No matter what to talk about the pittsburgh steelers the training camp practice. It was if you're curious what their schedule is. This week The steelers don't really make this public. I don't feel like it's that big of a deal to tell you but i will anyways When you're looking at the practice schedule this week. They practice wednesday thursday friday and saturday in their off on sunday. So that means that you will be getting a lot of jeff hartmann this week. Some might say ugh. That's horrible and some my day. I love jeff. Doesn't matter i'm going to be here no matter what so. Make sure you check out my. Let's ride podcast tomorrow. Wednesday as well as the training camp. Recap podcast later in the afternoon and evening and make sure behind the curtain dot com or one stop shop for all things pittsburgh steelers as they get ready for this training camp. This preseason eventually.

"I said all right. i'm gonna just go back to sleep. And then i hear this more russell and right behind my tent like yeah. I don't know what that is but light on. Let's start doing some beat. Ese works educations up for well. I i don't wanna get devoured by a bear. That's that's always good. You know. I mean i can see that show though i can see jeff hartmann dave scofield talking about how i was devoured by bear memorial would still get three thumbs down and you know how sports fans are. They would say any word. And who's gonna replace brian. I the very first question wouldn't be about. Oh gosh devoured by a bear so so let's start this up. Pittsburgh steelers fans welcome back to the hangover. Brian anthony davis alongside me shannon white and. Tony is so great to be back. I missed nation. I missed hashtag bad company. I missed all of you. And i'm so glad to be here and all this stuff happened when i was gone. Vidi vici retires. I'm going. I'm in the woods going who what's going on next thing. You know. melvin ingram. Show next thing you know. We're hearing that steven nelson might come back. Stephen nelson's not coming back steven nelson says. Hey you're all lying. I'm never coming back so it was a lots of stuff happened. You guys did a great job. I had a chance to listen to the show Good job on the quota. Saying my name that many times i appreciate it in fact you guys can keep your podcast jobs. So we're we're in good shape but yeah so no. I am absolutely. I'm thrilled to be back. I'm thrilled the tony is alive. Because there were some reports of his demise. And i was really worried about that as well. So we know that he's okay and shannon. You look better than ever man. Oh thank you look at shannon being the corner square on on hollywood squares up there that ethanol privileged quarterback position. Look at that so all plays to be in place now. I've got a main regret though. Something happened last week that i wasn't here for and it's killing me and i'm going to apologize. Happy birthday felicia. I know it's it's a week late but happy birthday triumphs. I'm so sorry. I missed that but you know. Hey it is great to be back here. And let's get into it. Pittsburgh steelers training camp fellas. What are you thinking of so far but still you shannon white. Just super excited again. You know football pants. I mean without paying you know insurance but everybody seems to be really happy focused Already and and you know knock on wood. No may have reported injuries yet. So i'm happy tony. Defa what you see an out of the south side and now going into heinz field. I just continue to be impressed. By the reports of shannon said about the focus and how player like nike harris is he. He can't get enough work he just can't he can't do enough and like we said. In the summer they have or earlier in the time to go home and report. You're hearing about pat fryer muse and even even antoine brooks. I wasn't expecting here. Why hear anything from him. And now you're talking. You're hearing reports of how he's doing decent in the slot and there's a player that maybe not a lot of people thought about as a candidate for that position so i mean i'm just excited about about the young guys because they're going to need to depend on a lot of young guys this year. So that's something we are going to be talking about in the show. So let's save. Some antoine brooks talked for a little bit later because he is definitely going to come up on this show and we are going to talk about on this show players that are shining already that you didn't expect to those guys. Some of the making their jumped from the big jump from year one to year two players that also that we're looking for to really show up we're gonna talk about players that showed up so far i'm gonna talk about one that showed up in a much different way and someone that keeps showing up in this same way. It is first of all dan moore junior on saturday to fights in a row to place fights one with isaiah bugs one with cam hayward you a lot of times that is that's an earning respect factor and guys like cam or pushing a rookie to see how far they'll go so that's not anything to worry about but you also wonder with isaiah bugs. Somebody made a mention today is why is this guy. Always get into fights. What's up with isaiah butts right tony. I think it's a good sign. It goes back hearkens back to what they were talking about in the spring during the draft or after the draft or how they were trying to find more aggression among the offensive lineman last year with thoughts. Of course we heard that. We've heard that about kendrick green and now dan moore who you know who's apparently really aggressive in ornery and trying to make name firms of my question is i didn't think they were allowed to even really scrimmage scrimmage pad so it's impressive that they're getting into fights without without pads that tells me that he must really want it shannon. Does that mean that he really wants it. Does that mean that he is so fired up in ready to go. Does that mean that. He's being tested by the veterans. What does that mean with dan more. Oh definitely he adrian. Klemm ovid's vlad coach. He screamed all these guys before the draft to talk to him. And and i guarantee you. He stressed that this is the direction we're going and we're going to be mean. We're going to be nasty. We're going to be physical and he said earlier. You know if you if you ain't gonna bring it here but it's going to be on the bench and i think that more took that to heart. He's in there and so naturally the veterans are going to try to test him a little bit and you know these happens in the hot sun i turn and the you know these high temperatures. You know the blood ball's a little bit and temperatures flair and it's a great thing i said i'd much rather have to tell it. Take it down a notch kicking him into but to get him to you know. Play harder and show more effort. So i think it's a great sign. I think it shows a lot about adrian klemm and you mentioned him shannon adrian..

"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..

"I'm not saying that what i'm saying. Is that what if we are learning about specific individual players. And that's where. I'm going to go with this podcast today before we get to that. I think it's worth noting that so far in camp. Everything has been geared up towards the hall of fame game the hall of fame game. That's gonna happen. Thursday august fifth in kano ohio against the dallas cowboys there. I mean you've heard. Mike tomlin talk about this ad nauseam. He talks about the quarterbacks in who's getting the work and who's getting more reps with the ones and the twos it's based on who is going to be starting in that hall of fame game. It's about the offensive line. Dan moore junior left. Tackle kendrick green at center. They're getting the majority of reps. Why because they want. They're going to be the ones that are gonna be starting in the hall of fame game. That is where everything has been going in terms of teamwork team drills team sessions. They want to get the players that are going to be playing a lot significant reps in the hall of fame game. they wanna get them repetitions. I have to think before. I move onto these individual players. I have to think that some of these players are probably going to be really really nervous going into this. Preseason going into these games even the hall of fame game. Is ben rothlisberger going to be nervous. No he's probably not even an address. But is someone like antoine brooks junior nervous. Maybe is someone like. Bj finney nervous. I would think so think about. Bj finish just general. Here's a guy that was an undrafted rookie at a kansas state. From the pittsburgh steelers his childhood his favorite team. He turns his backup..

"antoine brooks" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"In case your first time listening we've had a lot of people join us during the season last year in twenty twenty one that weren't with us during training camp. If you're one of those people just understand the training camp recap is really just a chance for me to let you know what's going on a practice. These will only be happening when the steelers actually practice. Obviously there's not gonna be news when they have the day off in the steelers. Were back on the field for the very first time. They reported on wednesday. Thursday was their very first time at practice. And it wasn't saint vincent college it wasn't latrobe. Pa but there was a lot of news happening amongst the pittsburgh steelers. And i'm going to break it down for you in simple terms is what you need to know The steelers after practice did have three three people. I should say three very important. People available for in-person media. It was actually the first time since two thousand nineteen you know. Mike tomlin stood in front of reporters. They weren't that close but he stood in front of reporters. So mike tomlin office. He spoke to ben. Rothlisberger and t. j. watt. Were the three people that spoke after practice on thursday so a couple of things of note The first thing that came that was really noticeable for me. Was that This mike tomlin said the kendrick green. Everyone's thinking could this guy be the center for the steelers in week. One what he said he is going to be the starter at center at least for week. One of the preseason. He also said the big. Dan more could start at tackle. I'm not sure if it was left to right tackle. But he did say the kendra kendrick green but dan more could be starting as well And then you got a feel for already early in training camp. There were some that were getting into like kendra green guy first team snaps. He dealt with ben rothlisberger on thursday rothlisberger said. Although it's not pouncey he said that Kendrick green communicated did all the calls. They didn't fumble a snap. So good i start for kendrick green but then also antoine brooks junior six round draft pick at a twenty and the twenty twenty draft out of maryland. You know how. Mike tomlin loves disturbs. He intercepted rothlisberger from the slot and rothlisberger. He said quote. He's filling mike hilton shoes. Who's been a rock on that defense for him to make that play. I was happy for him. And then also jim wechsel of twenty four seven. Sports said rothlisberger appeared frustrated by sensational diving interception by slot corner. Antoine brooks dens. Eddie was just amazed and was complimenting. Mike hilton's heir apparent a larkin change in the course of a preseason in training camp folks but it seems like the steelers are giving that first shot at that slot cornerback to antoine brooks junior. Some people thought it might be james pierre. Some people thought it might be someone like marcus allen no antoine brooks junior is getting the first look and he is seems to be making the most out of its keep that a minds to file it away. It's only day one. I don't wanna make too much video out of this but still something. No worthy also tj. Watts new deal might. Tom was asked about that. And he said quote. I'm sure that process will run. Its course and we'll have something to announce That's interesting. I didn't expect a contract to be done before the season. But maybe it will. Ben rothlisberger took to the podium and he was asked about some of the off season in a narratives supposedly involving his ability and his physique etc and he said quote are things being said about me nationally and then with a smile said well. What's new ben rothlisberger. Understand what's being said about him folks. If you're someone that's sitting there thinking how does not know he knows and he is. Trust me he's motivated to go out and show people that he is still capable of getting the job done. Speaking of rothlisberger a lot of people are wondering will he be able to learn nat canada's offense. It is different. It is complex. No one really knows exactly what it's going to look like rothlisberger certainly does he was asked about how he's learning all the formations. The new verbiage play calls. I mean this guy's going into his eighteenth year in the national football league actually said that his daughter helped him make flash cards and he said quote. There's been some quizzes with a smile. Devon bush if you didn't read the article on behind steel curtain dot com. He was told that he's basically been fully cleared medically with his knee. That he won't be you know. Have any downtime. Before he's able to practice he should be given the green light right away. Zach banner also ahead of schedule. Zero steeler players will be starting camp on the pup list the physically unable to perform list. That is great news for the steelers to not have anyone. That's dealing with a major injury. Early on now kevin and didn't work today. He didn't practice today. Said he's dealing with something that something is not serious enough to put them on the publis. I wouldn't put too much stock into that something. That was interesting. That i thought of it. i was curious. Did the steelers know about vince. Williams thinking about retirement according to mark bali of the athletic. He said it sounds like the steelers. Had no idea that vince williams retiring until yesterday. That's really interesting to me. Really interesting to me. And so Maybe he didn't tell them maybe he didn't know i'm not saying it's his fault. I'm not saying that anyone is to blame but very interesting news there. If the steelers had no clue that vince williams was about to hang it. Up tomlin. Mike tomlin was asked about the new offense of line in he did not Splice words he said quote. We don't have the bar set too high. We were last in the league in rushing. We have nowhere to go but up with certain aspects of that. Yeah i hope that that's the way they view it as they can only go up but at the same time we hope that they they don't just move up a little bit. They actually thrive. That's that's the hope that is the hope. And then lastly in like. I said there wasn't a ton of news coming out of this first day of camp There are some steelers that will be wearing new numbers. Some people like the jersey. Some people want to go out and buy a bunch of jersey. so in case you're interested like new. Newly-acquired melvin ingram. Outside linebacker will wear number eight number eight this is. He's taking advantage that new. Nfl rule where linebackers are allowed to wear single digit numbers. He wore number. Eight trade turner. But we're never fifty one. That's really weird for me. When i think fifty one i think james farrior But still fifty one and yeah a buddy johnson. The rookie from texas am fourth round. Pick is also wearing number fifty one He's on the other side so something's gonna give but honestly if the rookie makes the team he will probably not be too attached to that number if trae turner wants it. We'll keep it that way. Kicker sam sloman. Who is basically a camp unless chris boswell gets hurt is gonna wear sixteen and also newly acquired offense attack. Oh chaz green is wearing number seventy four so for all you jersey fans out there. There's your jersey fixing all those new numbers the pittsburgh steelers. I wanna make this very clear. The pittsburgh steelers have not released. That i've seen any type of schedule for training camp when they're at latrobe. There is a clear cut. The players are working out this day this day off this day this day this day. Preseason game i have not seen anything like that. So i wanna be able to say. Check me tomorrow. For another training camp recap but if they give him the day off and there won't be a training camp recap so your best bet is to check out behind.

"He's not going to be the captain. Here's one i'm gonna ask you this question. 'cause i someone that i thought about. I'm not going to do it. But it's my answer to this question for you jordan. Dangerfield's gun yes. Who do you think and they talking about. This would be really important that it is. Who do you think is going to be the up man on the punt team that is the guy causes formation calls in guys sets them if they have to come into block rather than be outlined. And everything else. If there's gonna be fake he's gonna call it or things like that. Who do you think is gonna fill that role who is mainly one of your most important special teamers other than your specialists for the steelers this year. You know what. I was trying to think about the idea to make this list and i wasn't sure if i had anybody picked out for that i do. I do and it's someone that i thought about. I'm like you just. I just don't see someone being a captain their first year in pittsburgh. I think it's good to be mouse gilbert who they signed on the lines. That's what i think is going to be there. I think he's he was basically. In my opinion he was brought in in the jordan dangerfield role. He's special teams ace but they could probably use them more on defense. That's just what i think. I think that's a guy that that could be there and do that. A cre- thinks is going to be derek. What that he could be the guy as as the up man. So if that's the case then i could very well see what being being the the especially in captain. I dismissed him right away. Because i thought we had one year in pittsburgh and he missed a lot of time there and you know which is a shame because part of the reason i said. Hey i'm okay with steelers signing him because his best abilities is availability because he had never missed a game in his career and then he comes to pittsburgh in four game last year so all. Yeah i guess that's an honestly that was probably why he was brought in in place of roosevelt mix because of thinking he was going to be more available so if he's not available this year this will be his last year in pittsburgh or he honestly because he'll be going into his last the last year of his deal so but i'm hoping he can really be a good special teams guy anything else you wanna say about the subject he rich. You know what there was. Another person out. There are actually considered becoming forty forty percent of the snaps. And kind of and you. And i we love this guy forty percent snaps. I'm looking okay. i'm ready okay. Go ahead. what mine in favorites. Okay and that would be henry monday henry. I know these theme. I mean he brings a lot on special teams so he goes. But there's i mean there are so line see another guy that played a lot of snaps. If someone like marcus allen yes you know so that was. That one's tough. I mean james played a lot of of special teams snaps last year. But he playing more corner whether in some package or not. He might not have many snaps. I don't know Here's someone that i thought about. But i didn't say it because he didn't have very many special teams snaps last year but he might end up with more this year. Do you think. Because of the return of one devon bush in the emergence of one roberts splaine that one vince williams vinicio. I think it's it's williams. Then ev- ichi key might be playing more special team snaps. Because i think if that's the plan he could be your special teams captain. I just don't know that that's going to be. I don't know if that's going to be the plan or not. And that's i thought about him. And i was going to have him high because i'm like he would be a great special teams captain if they're going to relegate him to playing special teams and. I don't know that they're going to do that. So yeah and then. There's right here like chris and live chat and i would be okay with this. He says i want jordan dangerfield back just as give. I'm confession. i finally deleted it a few weeks ago. I wrote two articles before the start of the league year in march two have already written so we had to do is throw it a little bit of data slap in a tweet hit publish will be get up there. Quick of players that the steelers were were going to sign for the twenty twenty one season. One of those articles published zach. Banner the other one. I had to delete because it was jordan. Dangerfield thought for sure he was one of those guys that they were going to bring back. Veteran minimum. Wouldn't even really be counting. You know where they get the the the break towards the salary cap of this psalm. One year deal where even though he's making nine hundred ninety thousand dollars. He's only counting eight hundred fifty. That's that veteran salary. Benefit is what that's called but then they signed miles killer bruin that kind of right there just told we talked about it on staff even with with. Bts's were like. I think the killebrew kind of nixed. The whole jordan dangerfield return so interesting so that's just one of those things. A lot of people were giving some some comments is the first ever lived. That the live chat that much but he breached. You want to take a few minutes questions or do you want see some oil. Well mention inter wilbur. Put up their ass about antoine brooks. You know yeah. And how much he he. He only played two percent of the special teams snaps last year. He didn't play very many games remember. he didn't even team. He was on the practice squad. Crackhead he did make some appearances. We'll see what he has to do this year right now. is there. yeah. I would expect those numbers for him to pick up. I don't know if they're going to pick up to forty plus percent or not. We'll see we'll see we're going to think about five minutes of questions here. I just put it out there in the in the live chat. If someone has a question would if you wanna make sure you can use the super chat feature just drop whatever amount in there and put your question. Don't feel like you need to do it. we're not here. Soliciting.

That's rough and i feel like decastro. Can't go stews probably try to work.

"Bear friends the McLaren health plan one great health plan it's Michigan state it's Maryland in this season regular season finale what Marilyn they started off really strong market and they've had some tough times what's your take on well the big challenge you know it's our first year as a staff there and then also they've had a lot of injuries they've had some quarterbacks being shuffled in and out of it any time you don't have consistency I think it first of all who's playing at quarterback you know other problems that could possibly follow and they've had guys get knocked out of the game you know from a health standpoint and public nevertheless the mail coach Locksley will bring his football team here with and I'm sure they'll be ready to play so but that he has two outstanding tailbacks and McFarland and leak before number twenty is a guy that averages about seven point nine yards per carry summer one of the big ten after yards after contact and in in that capacity of so we gotta stop those guys the receiver situation of is a little bit down a little bit they've lost a couple guys but demi's number seven is our top guy we'll find out who's going to quarterback number three pogo mayor Josh Jackson of his a transfer for Ginny tech started at Virginia Tech of consistently so we're gonna find out that we will get to game time probably because of you know I think I think Jackson may be questionable but defensively and Antoine Brooks number twenty five is probably the top defensive player and they're gonna play hard so the bottom line will be always be can we take care of the football and as we do this how we play on special teams and things like that and then you got to make plays down the stretch but usually the case we talk about making plays boy last week the defense team there we discover several little bit mark with posting check out against records first row checkout since nineteen ninety nine what's got those guys going again well first of all we were tough to run on and usually when that happens you know you're gonna get a middle built more long yardage third down situations and they didn't convert on third down they were out of eleven they actually turn the ball over twice on on fourth down to bid we got two big turnovers with interception by Xavier Henderson and that also a big fumble recovery tackle a full recovery in advance of that fumble by decides cut too big place us so both played very well play through Jessica thought our whole football team played with energy and were a you know sort of on a mission well you know we've talked about it senior day today and as I look at your offense the starting lineup now we have to seniors on that offense got quarterback brown the work you get tied in a mad sci bird and I guess circumstances led to an amazing youth movement there yeah we've we've cut younger we've got younger you know we started a three three eight one point point last week we had I believe there were a freshman on the team on offense on the field at once and we had three offense Salamina tight end of August seventh of running back and the two white out so you know we're young in that capacity but I think it's been good because they're they're good players of the freshmen are good players and you know that bodes well for the future but but it's you know it's the consistency of performance and doing the right thing or making sure that they're of they're all the same page with everybody else with your white out or with your office a lot I mean you know there's a lot going on out there so that'll be the focus but to the defensive side you know job watches out as everybody knows that's a big loss of but tie Rico tasa filled in for him last week and we move Tyree can there we'll see what we do today the war really tipper had on that regard but but we've not had as many entries we have some people in and out but not long term injury so so it'll be a it's a little bit interesting terms of how we go about fixing some of these things but again our energy and our focus is been good well Darryl Stewart getting heard toady white had to step up it seems like he's beginning to do that Cody what had a big game last week and and really the week before I played well up so you know he's become a little bit more he's our leading receiver right now he's pastoral that capacity so we don't we have two guys with almost a hundred catches total between the two of them of but yeah he's a he's a big play guys long he's he's catch the ball very effectively at nine catches the first half last week and I think finished with eleven for a hundred and fifty yards or so so very productive day three touchdowns will leave.
