"Out last season and had everyone thinking. This guy is the diamond in the rough. The steelers have been eating at the quarterback position. I just haven't seen all of that much of him. this preseason. he hasn't been bad but i can't say he's been great either. I would really love to see him. Look like he settles in. Make a player to come up with the football. Stripped everything coming into training camp with him and even going back to minicamp was it. He was just making play after play after play. I'd love to see that happen in start on friday night next jamir jones outside linebacker. He in quincy rochelle talk about him in the honorable mention. They are probably battling for one roster spot jamir jones. he's in after show both as an outside linebacker and a special teamer any way. You can make a splash. Play can help you make this roster jamir jones number forty four. He's a second year guy of notre dame. Keep an eye out for him. Last five number five on the list is arthur. Millette number thirty five. Cornerback he with anton brooks junior. Being released talked about that on wednesday on that podcast with him being released malev is the main guy in the nickel and he had an ankle injury. I'm not even sure if he's going to be playing friday night but if he's healthy enough they need him out. They're not so much from a personnel standpoint but they need to figure out what's going on with their secondary. It's just not really good right now. Does not look good at all. If millette can play. Which i hope he does. I think that'd be a big deal honorable mention slash special teams. We'll go train. Norwood number twenty one defensive back even offer him. He's going to be getting some looks at the nickel position this week. Coe does he was mainly playing safety. The majority of training camp keith. Defensive coordinator said he feels a traynor. What is going to be out of the. He knows every position in the secondary. He's they're giving him a shot at the nickel he's the next guy up there literally throwing everything against the wall to see what will stick and it's just like a traynor. Was the last thing the latest thing that they're going to throw against the wall presley harbin. The third big press. I think he's done everything possible to win the job he just has had another good outing. Go out there. Boom those fifty yards big fella and pin them deep and you do that and guess what number six will be running for the steelers for really long time. So as long as he holds the ball. Well for chris boswell which he did that against detroit did a great job i think presley harbin. We might be celebrating. We might be celebrating. Keep that in. Mind i ride i cruise. You know what. I'm talking about last not least quincy. Rochet is an honorable mention again. He engineered jones. Battling it out. Who makes the team. Who doesn't i don't know but we'll see it's gonna be interesting to watch some of these camp battles breakdown and by the way a little teaser. We are going to be breaking down some of these camp adults kind of wrapping up on the steelers preview. If you haven't if you haven't checked that out yet make sure you check it out. A that's myself. Dave scorpion and brian anthony davis or when i come back you know what time it is. Folks it's friday. That means it's mr captain blue checkmark or maybe it's captain or i'm sorry. Mr coach captain blue checkmark all explained that when we bring michael back.

"Be honest. I was kinda hesitant. When does this topic in this idea was brought up doing like a film room type. Podcast with no visual. I'm sitting there thinking to myself. How in the heck is this going to be successful. How's going to work. You're not gonna get to see anything. Jeffrey hit it out of the ballpark. I'm not joking with you. I wouldn't mess around with this stuff. It is very well done. Makes you check that out. Also the war room with mattie para listening to last week's episode just topnotch ev- even if you just listen for the australian accent really really good stuff and you have things like what you're talking about. We have the steelers. The fantasy football with jeremy beds and then also the ohioans with the steelers power half hour all that wherever you get your podcasters steelers or behind curtains or you do not miss a thing. All right so i feel like it's probably appropriate to talk first to start this. Show not about the headline. That was going to ask. Then the steelers made tuesday interesting. No one myself included. Thought that tuesday's roster cuts from eighty five to eighty was going to be anything to write home about last tuesday. That was really kind of like a. These guys are cut. Okay that makes. We expected that. So i have everything ready. You've got the parade done. We're ready to go we. We have behind the curtain. Were ready for this news. And then they surprised us and they being the pittsburgh steelers they released the following players. Linebacker calvin bondage. Okay offensive lineman avion collins. Fine running back pete. Guerrero sherve don't know anything about peak in wide receiver. Tyler simmons. I think tyler simmons was that georgia former georgia wide receiver. That basically made the team at the pro day and he was actually a draft he could have played in the nfl last season but due to cove it and all that stuff he was able to so he gets released. No surprises then. I'm looking at the list that is released by the public relations department on twitter. This only four names like they have to release five players. Where's the fifth but my eyes. Scroll down a little bit. And all i see is this steelers. Also waived injured safety. Antoine brooks junior and i am sitting there thinking. You've got to be kidding me. This has a ripple effect here folks. I really do believe this. And there's a lot of people out there on social media right now. They're kind of downplay this. They're saying it's not a big deal. Let me give an example brook prior. Espn says this quote with brooks wave slash injured slot corner competition would appear to be between camp sutton arthur millette who hurt his ankle against detroit. If i were a betting person. I'd say sutton will be outside corner kicking inside the slot when needed and bringing in james peer. Now okay. that's all well and good. But i had to be honest if i'm a betting person. I'm not agree with brook. Prior no way shape or form and the reason being is that i honestly don't think that the pittsburgh steelers are going to just go with what they have. I think they love to the anton brooks junior and said this guy that we were hoping could fill the void where mike hilton was in the past and he's hurt in the injuries. Not getting better and we can't sit around and wait and so we have to prepare ourselves. So they're going to do him a solid by releasing him early. Maybe a team picks him up. Maybe team i don't know but a lot of times when you see notable names. I'm not saying that. Anton brooks juniors a notable name. He is amongst the steelers faithful but not necessarily in the nfl circle. What would you release a guy like that. That's a drafted player. Second year had high expectations placed on them a lot of times. It's like hey we're going to do a solid here and let you go. Maybe a team will pick you up. Hopefully if not maybe we'll circle back so the steelers now make this move in. Everyone just thinks it's going to be an house thing. Yes they've been working cam sutton in the slot. Could maybe they're looking at the situation and saying that's not what we want. We can't have that. I personally if i were denting as prior said if i was a betting person i would suggest that the steelers are looking for a quarterback that is going to be released from a team not now. I don't think it's going to be now. I would be shocked if they pick someone up off waivers. I think it would be when they roster gets trimmed from eighty to fifty three in. That's supposed to happen by next tuesday at four. Pm so the steelers. They could have a cornerback or a couple of quarterbacks in mind that they like on teams that are loaded at the position that have access players at physician and say. Let's just wait and see. Let's just wait and see now. That doesn't mean that they just throw caution into the wind but at the same time. This now puts the steelers in a precarious situation at slot. Cornerback i did a radio spot today with it was a show in las vegas and it was kind of about betting and they were just doing a upcoming season preview and i was the guy they wanted on to talk about the steelers and they were asking about my biggest concern for the steelers moving into the twenty twenty one season and i said for the defense it has to be cornerback who is going to be opposite. Joe haden and we still don't have that answer were preparing. The steelers are preparing fans are preparing for the carolina panthers friday night and we still don't have that answer because let's be on camp sutton has really let the world on fire as announced. Cornerback in the preseason. They might see something we don't in other words it practice. He might be showing out and being everything that they expect him to be. But i gotta be honest. It's concerning many holes on that defense but that is one of them in it's ripple effect if you have to move camp sutton in that means you have to put someone else outside. Is it just lane. He's getting better. I don't think he's area. Is james pierre really really inexperienced player. Is arthur millette ready for the slot. I don't know. I don't know and that's a problem when you don't know that's a problem but let's get to the headline. Let's get to the topic. The meat and potatoes of this podcast. And that is this friday night. The pittsburgh steelers will travel to charlotte north carolina to play the carolina panthers as they always seem to do it in the preseason finale. It's almost like there's certain certainties. In life you death taxes and the steelers playing the panthers in the preseason finale every year but you know what the title of this podcast forget the panthers forget the panthers forget the preseason. What are we gonna talk about the preseason. I mean yeah. There's some questions. I looked in the mail back a little bit. Some people had some questions about the game today. No answer those in the second half when you think about the this last game i just there's nothing really for me to glean from this. I got everything..

"Or not laughing at you. Oh on laughing. I didn't realize cool. Look what you don't realize you also froze a little bit at a very very appropriate time in there. So that's that's great. I just think if this was a normal. Preseason i i think they would. Everybody would have it off and we would see the guys like we saw a couple years ago. Dodges jay elliott. We have see those guys. Johnny houghton on game four. So i kind of expect to see that kind of thing once again game for this year because there are four games. That's why you're gonna see the hayward's in the mingka's in the hayden send in a lulus all the while loop lulu dave recommend that i always said abu allah and then i was corrected to a lulu. I know no clue dave. What do you think about the defensive starters that are getting their first preseason action the saturday night. This is just defense. Right correct okay. Yeah obviously i think everyone all the players are pretty much on the table except for to it. And what. I you see everybody unless there's any kind of injury going on. I don't know that. I mean even antoine brooks was working his way back. There's a lot of the people hate him. Practice today anton brooks he was he was out there. Doing something. just didn't have helmets so it looks like he's trying to get work his way back at first. They said he was back in like no helmets. Not there but they weren't in pads right. That was part of the thing so he might be someone else you if if he's good to go but we still have a few days until the game and he's not someone that that they're going to be like all we should hold them out since he didn't practice because they need to see what he's got so i think you've pretty much got the two guys that you're not gonna see otherwise everybody's eligible if there was one player on the defensive side that is eligible. Replace that this obviously excludes wotton to it. That i'm like. Hey i don't want him to even see the field because he doesn't need to in. I don't dare risk this guy getting injured. It's minkah fitzpatrick for me. I i just if there was someone. Put him in bubble wrap zayd. Stay off the field until we one. Would you say that for you. All out of the guys that could be returning. He's the most important. I just look at the safety death. Unlike good lord of they lose minka. They are in trouble brian. You think absolutely minka is the guy that he's one of the quarterbacks on that defense yeah dave. You agree disagree. It's it's minka. it's joe haden than everybody else right. Because they're so deep defensive line so yeah okay. I mean you would say somebody like maybe a devon bush but he's got to work his way back coming back from the injury all right. Let's talk a little bit about special teams before we take our first break now. Let's about punter because there is no special teams talk anymore with kicking. Sam sloman was released when they went from ninety eighty five. How do you have your mike tomlin. How do you handle punting duties in this game. I don't feel like doing half and half is going to work considering presley. Harvard didn't get to punt the ball last week in philadelphia when they did that. So brian of your tomlin. And danny smith june twenty five thousand pieces of gum in your mouth and the game. How do you divvy up the punting duties between big press and weasel void jordan berry. I don't think they change anything. They they will probably just look at that as something that happened. Just hey we didn't get to see press harbin. Maybe they start. Press harbin again and do that same thing. I really can't see them. Alternate alternating quarter one in quarter three or quarter to quarter three in one and four. I can't really see them doing that. So i would actually think that big press gets the start and the because they saw a lot of Jordan berry last week in there. Probably if if we've got a c one this week they're probably thinking it's going to see presley. Harvard think to see if he has the momentum going since he didn't get the opportunity last week. I just don't think i don't see them deviating from the script 'cause they vary rarely do this. Okay david Your thoughts about the punting battle. Well although i like what you proposed on let's ride of just every other punt just changes. Let them take ego. Then you go you do it by quarter if you know what i mean and say. Okay you got the first quarter you got sent quarter and then if somebody gets no punts in there they get the third quarter. You know what. I'm saying that then. You decided halftime. Who's going to get the next quarter. It might be that. Oh well big press starts off in the first quarter pun twice and berries in the second quarter the planet all than bears. We'll get the third quarter and then they don't put again then he's obviously going to get the next point or like i would prefer. Let's just see these guys punto. These preseason game. Let's just you know. Put together scoring drive. Every time i'd much rather prefer that and they would just be doing the holding and let them hold. Yeah let's get this super chat up here alexander perked. I think you said is that a pound sign. Maybe yes four. Forty nine poundage. He's at hey fellas love you as always been watching for years. Always appreciate your energy. Here's some money for internet connection. Brian minds just in that is brian. Mine cuts out all the time. That's why dave always has we're back people were like okay enough aamer so it's because like my screen will freeze for literally two seconds and then he comes back on but anyways nonetheless there you go so we've talked about offense defense and special teams when we come back after this break. We're going to be talking about some scenarios. Have some tough questions for these guys. The answers are going to be doing some over under and we're also going to have some trivia so stay tuned. We'll be right back for watching. Live on youtube or facebook. Don't go anywhere. We're not going anywhere if you're listening on audio head over to partout..

"Obviously we had there was no hayward there was no lulu. There is a no to it and he was asked about the death. He said they he feels that they have some quality young players on that defensive front and he named one in particular that is seventh round. Pick from the twenty twenty nfl. Draft out of nebraska. Carlos davis he said davis has been getting as he put it quote varsity reps and he's been taking advantage of those he brought up the turnover. That happened the interception. It was davis pressure. That equated to the hurried throw or the misfired. Throw which equated to the interception so kudos to carlos davis you get called out by my talent for the right reason. You're doing something right. He was then asked by about trae. Turner trade turner was acquired. A fill in that right guard spot where david decastro was when he was released he and he talked glowingly about turner's communication. He is the ultimate communicator. He's doing things that as tomlin put it. He does not necessarily have to do. And it's a situation where he's helping younger players like kendrick. Green the center The kendra green internal will be talking at length after practices to talk about what went right. What went wrong. What they what they could have done differently. Just communicating so good news there from mike tomlin regarding trae turner najji harris. Who played in the first game. I did well. Didn't play a ton of plays but did get his feet wet so to speak was asked if since he played and played well and it seemed like he was getting acclimated to the professional game. Rather quickly woody scale back najji harris's workload in the answer was a swift. No he's not going to be scaling that back. I wouldn't be shocked if anything he is adding to the workload as the preseason progresses to get him ready if he takes his foot off the gas at won't be until the last preseason game he was asked about kendrick green in how he's doing and kendra green the asked basically should we read into the fact that he started the week one game it looks. I'm not sorry not the week when the first preseason game. He's going to probably start on thursday. Should we read into it. Tomlin smiled and said i would. Now you can take that with a grain of salt. He went on to talk about how kendrick greens doing a tremendous job that his work ethic that his ability to understand to grasp concepts is varsity level. I feel like the maybe this is just my interpretation but the way that tomlin answered that question and spoke about kendrick green makes me feel that this job is done. Meaning it's his job to lose now. If kendra green goes out there and in the snaps are flying all over the field. He's missing assignments he doesn't understand what's going on. He's missing coverages. That can change. But as of right now in my opinion this is kendra greens job to lose whether he wins it or not is up to him. So that's going to be something to watch for sure. On thursday night as the pittsburgh steelers travel across the state to philadelphia pennsylvania to play the eagles. All right folks. That does it for me and atlas. The end of my tomlin's press conference. If you wanna check out the full press conference you can see that in the article that iran on behind the curtain dot com. Which by the way should be your one-stop shop for all things pittsburgh steelers jerk it early and often we have some great stuff up there today. Everything from tony nephews notes from training camp that he went to you sunday as well as a great breakdown about anton brooks junior that was done by our own kevin smith also wherever you get your podcast steelers or behind the steel curtain so that you do not miss a thing as the steelers prepare not just for thursday the rest of the preseason and the twenty twenty one regular season just debuted a brand new show. Jeffrey benedict's from the cutting room floor. Really good stuff. Make sure you check it out. Are you know how finishings out here folks be safe. Be kind in god. Bless we'll see next.

"Welcome back to the second statement of less right. I'm your host. Jeff hartmann in. I am the senior editor behind the steel curtain dot com. The just got done talking about the offensive side of the football players to watch it. And i know it might be early monday. The game on thursday. You're probably thinking jefferson early. I don't think so. I don't think so. This is one of the few games that there's not going to be much guesswork. In terms of who plays we know. Ben rothlisberger is not going to play. We know that a lot of this defensive superstars are not going to play. Why because they don't have to play. There's no need for them to play y. Go out there and risk injury when you don't have to. The steelers are fortunate that they have four preseason games this year while everyone else outside of dallas has three so the steelers actually can run. What every nfl team new but back in two thousand and nineteen was a typical preseason. They can have this first game. This hall of fame game has just a as basically a chance for rookies in young players to get reacclimated the nfl game or to get them repetitions. And then in the second week which week one. They'll be able to kind of get. Some of their starters denounced some rostov week three will probably be seen as the final dress rehearsal and then that final week is only when they shut things down. They play almost the same exact rosser that they did in the first week. That is the luxury the steelers have into. This is one of the few times the we're going to be able to say okay. These players aren't playing. See here's you should watch so already won over the offense. Go back and listen in case you missed it. But here are the defensive players that i'm excited to watch on thursday night against the dallas cowboys. First and foremost. I think cornerback. James spear has to be on most people's minds by now if you've been paying attention to training him. Let me rephrase that. If you've been paying attention all off season we can go all the way back to last season at the very end it was james pierre who was playing overtop of justin lane and he was playing justin lane got hurt in jane's beer played and he was the governor and he never let any position go if he was on the field. He never relinquished that role. Instead that carried over into the offseason mandate or otas james peers name was being brought up mandatory minicamp james peers name was being brought up so much so that the media requested to interview him in he was probably sitting there thinking. Why are they interviewed me. They know what they're seeing their seeing a kid that in i say kid on purpose a second-year player who is showing serious signs of being a playmaker. Now we go into training camp and he is continuing to make his name known so much so that when the steelers started out and seven shots there. Typical training camp drill start. This start their training camp practice. They put the ball the two yard line. You get seven plays from the to in and it was. They started out. James pierre was on the outside cam sudden was on the slot. Think about that. I wanna see what james beer can do. When he's actually on the field for a significant amount of time he's not going up against dak prescott. I know that it doesn't matter who the quarterback is. It doesn't matter who the receiver is. It just matters that he's out there making plays. He's in the right spot. He's taking advantage of opportunities tackling. Well i'm excited to see. Would james peer can do because if he can actually play a really good brand of football in trust him enough to put him opposite. Joe haden than my goodness. They're secondary just got a whole lot better now. Cam sutton doesn't have to play on the outside camp sutton can play in the slot cam and complained the dime. They have so much versatility now. If that can happen for gene peer they. Big steppingstone is coming up on thursday. The next another defensive bag and i say defensive back for a reason another twenty twenty rookie. Who i felt like probably would have made a team straight out the gate if he would have had a preseason. He did not have that. Luxury antoine brooks junior. I was absolutely stunned. When this former university of maryland terrapin was the first to get a shot at mike helton's nickel slot position all reports from camp or that he has lost weight. He's in better shape. He's faster that means it. His coverage abilities better. I remember when he was coming out of college. Everyone said sixth round. Pick mind you everyone that this is a guy that plays the line of skimmers. The line of scrimmage great. He tackles well. He's your typical box safety. Well now you're thinking about okay. What is my hilton do well. He played the box. Well he also cover could also blitz. anton brooks can do those. And if he's in better shape and he improved his covered skills he could fill that role he could fill that role. So that'll be interesting. We'll be really anxious to see how he does when he's given he was injured a little bit. He did get banged up. I believe he did return to practice. So maybe that'll dictate how much playing time he has but he can get as much playing time as possible. I i. if he's smart. He's tone coaches give. Gimme on the field. And i don't want to come off. I don't want to come off the field. I want to get this to prove that. This is my job and i'm not going to let it go for arthur mullet or anyone else. So anton brooks junior is definitely on my list. Third player ulysses gilbert the third yuji three a brimming with potential jerry sanski the inside linebackers coach mel with media this past week and he talked about usually three and he said that you know. He's so athletic. He's so talented but he has to put it all together. He has to be. He has to be willing to take the hit in the beating. He's he's been injured for the first two seasons of his career. Could this be the year that he finds a role. I said this before on the show. And i'll say it again. When vince williams suddenly announced his retirement just announced his retirement and said. I'm done.

"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..

"Said that kind of stuff. I think steeler fans would would would feel more respected. But unfortunately it's been it's been kind of the opposite Predictions this season. All right russ open says secondary battle. It's gonna be great every we were talking about that on monday shannon and i. It's going to be really interesting to see what happens. Because obviously you have joe haden. Who's who's your starter and of course you have a edmonds in fitzpatrick as your safeties. Who's going to get that number. Two cornerback spot. Is he going to be james. Piere is going to be justin lane. There's going to be one of these. These undrafted free agent rookies. Wouldn't that be something. Is he going to have to be cam. Sutton who moves over in place on the outside in nath move somebody into the slot. People were already talking about anton brooks. Evidently he made a a pretty spectacular interception in early days of training camp. So there's somebody that you know your six round pick last year kind of a forgotten guy. Wouldn't that be something if he if he rose up and made a huge leap in and played a valuable role for them in twenty twenty one. Now it'd be spectacular. I mean that's the kind of stuff that you know those underdog stories. That are really fun to witnesses a fan. We saw with mike helton back in two thousand seventeen. He kind of came out of nowhere. People were reeling from the says. Quiz golsen The second round pick in two thousand fifteen who just suffered injury. After injury he made into a preseason game. If i'm not mistaken surely didn't make into into a regular season game and you never made the final roster and they were reeling from that and they found somebody else will mess and under the free agent and he became one of the best slot corners into game. So you just never know. Reginald rivers asking by the way we welcome reggie and And i saw clarence washington and michael. Molly's here so welcome everybody. Do you think all steelers draft picks will make the roster. Do i think they will. No no i mean..

"anton brooks" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"What's up dave not much. It feels weird to just the two of us on the screen though. Yeah i mean. I'm used to doing it with one other person at this point but i mean it's i everything philly. Some people are waiting for some dramatic entrance from brian. Anthony davis no. He's he's out in the woods playing yogi bear or something.

Our live chat on youtube is outstanding best desk group ever and last week. We asked everyone to chime in. Let us know where you're watching firms if you want to whether you're watching on facebook or on you to go ahead love to see how far reaching our show is already dang from mexico. We are global dave. I'll tell you what we are global just as yeah absolutely so The pittsburgh steelers got back to work today and it wasn't just hey we're here. We're showing up. And i'm glad they got back to work. 'cause i swear this morning dave hours ready to throw something through wall if i had to hear brook prior anyone on espn spouting off about ben rothlisberger shirt. That says different. I mean all my gosh. How bad of newsday that we are having the listen to these talking heads that know nothing about the steelers. By the way. Because mike greenberg i went off on twitter. Page about that odd. So he he was. I go steelers offensive line which is one. I'm not saying they were good but they could pass. Protect the only surrendered. What fourteen sacks last season's ex and he's like oh he got beat up and i'm like dude you then was throwing the ball to get beat up. And then it was worth anti bruce area writings and then of course. There's people on twitter there. Were you know quarterback hits or difference. I i know that. I'm not an idiot but at the same time it just really irks me You know when these national now. I don't watch nfl work. I don't watch espn. I only saw that on twitter but that just solidifies. Why and i talked about this on my. Let's ride for friday morning. You is fans. If you're a die. Hard fan i i say this because obviously it's uh but i'd rather listen to whether it's me or chris carter unlocked on steelers. We know more about the team than these idiots on. Espn and all nfl network stuff. The dave that's just a low rant sorry to get off on that. Yeah i mean. We saw earlier this week when all of a sudden national media wants to chime in with with the steelers when they signed ingram. I i'm. I'm gonna call mark sixteen times. I know i am just what i'm doing. I've already did an article so now back that and then just move on. And they're like. Oh yes so now though. Have t. j. Watt melvin ingram and quincy rochet and they stopped. I'm like you obviously do not follow the steelers in any grew. What's going on and really really tiring really frustrating. But yet that's where people go to because of her name but it doesn't mean that they really know diddley squat or what's going on in they keep on bringing up ben's wait i mean he's going into year eighteen people. Why does why do we care at this point. As long as it is he able to stay healthy is he still able to throw the football and easy so able to do what he does. Best in that's on the field and you know can allude pass rushers if the answer. All three things are yes. And he's winning football games. What who anyways is it gives is five dollars thank you. Isaac longtime listener says listening on blog. Talk radio we're not on blog. Talk radio if you're listening on blog talk radio. You're listening to some really old. No we're not blog talk radio. You can actually hear us right now. Good point very good point shield. Ninety one gives us five dollars. We appreciate says. I only listen and re btc and we always say behind a steel curtain dot. Com should be your one stop shop. And i say this all the time. I'm not naive enough to think that you all anyone. That's listening to this or watching is only going to check our site. I just hope that if you had only one choice you choose us. That's our goal. That's our goal that you might use something else. that's fine. that's it's okay. There's a ton of outlets out there and a lot of really good. We have a lot of good working relationships with a lot of people so anyways The steelers did get back to work and it was news besides Outside of ben rothlisberger wait slash wardrobe Out of the stuff. That took place dave on day one in training camp and i know you've been following the news like i have What stood out to you. Because my recap particle will be out tomorrow morning friday morning but what what what stood out to you anything in particular or did you notice. I only heard a report of one thing of actual on field play. I only heard of one. You know you talk about. Who was there who did but actually playing the only thing that i heard her i was able to see was antoine. Brooks junior apparently got an interception playing slot. Cornerback against ben rothlisberger. So because it was something that he mentioned or he was asked about during his interview. Which i haven't seen the whole thing. I've ever seen parts of that. 'cause i'm busy trying to dissect coach tomlin's interview that's about all i heard for actual plays on the field. The only other thing that stands out was one player to not participate. And that was kevin dotson. Apparently he's dealing with something you know i. Maybe he's not properly conditioned. I'd didn't say cheap bad now. But it's not that no one starting on on the on the pup list but coach tomlin said that it'll be something where we're talking days until he's ready to go in the compound. Your anton rooks junior comment. Is that rothlisberger. said in. This is something that when you think back to the mike tomlin interviews in minicamp. He talked about anton brooks junior and they have him and this is something event rothlisberger said right now. He's getting the first shot. I'm not saying he's the answer. This is one practice people. But he's getting the first shot replacing mike hilton. I thought that was very interesting. We all assumed or gas or prognosticator. It'd be james. Maybe james pierre shocker brown and they will probably get our opportunities but i never would have guessed antoine brooks. Junior would have been the first up. You agree with that. Yeah i mean. I don't know anything. Yeah that's that's that's very interesting thing. I think it means something well but coach. Tom could also make the comments like you was first up-to-date center was kendra green. And he was saying we want guys. They're going to be that we want us the they're going to be starting the hall of fame game to get the reps now to get them ready for that. You know some of these younger guys. They're trying say they might not be the guy but they might be the guy that's going to be in that game and it could be that they're saving other people could be whatnot. But no i think the games perfect opportunity for kinder- green to be the starter and there. I mean coach tomlin already announced him as starter He said if you want a story there you go but all that means is that he starting the fame game so they're trying to get some of those guys up to speed so it's interesting but bottom line is is something we're going to be talking about. Come september right now is my big thing was also the kendrick green announcement that kendrick green is going to be starting in that first preseason game so a lot of fans will just kind of pooh-poohed this news and It is what it is. It's a it's a meaningless. Preseason game i completely disagree. I completely disagree based on the fact that i look at kendrick. Green is someone that is going to have an opportunity to take the by the horns so to speak and if he plays well enough. He's not going to relinquish that job. And that's important in a he could easily say we're gonna get. Bj finney out there. I he's a veteran. He's been in the program..

"anton brooks" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Liked that. Were like to listen to work for. Espn far few between my new. But it's exhausting. It is exhausting. And i also wanna remind everybody one bank he freshened everybody's head my predictions of the season. Thirteen in four afc championship against kansas city. Beating tampa bay super bowl. Right west love that prediction. By the way for me. I look at this. Can i say when it comes to the espn's and stuff that's when you have a situation where you're like okay. It's situation where the steelers might not make the sexy move all the time but right now what they saw in this past offseason they saw they saw known commodities leave in unknown commodities existing. And this is where that narrative is driven from so but depre- it didn't start off his career but became a known commodity. You knew what to expect from bud. Every single sunday that he got on the field then you had players like mike hilton a known commodity dig out our one hundred villanueva known. Commodity matt feiler. Maybe not so much okay but still so then you lose those known commodities. What are you left with your left with players that are anything but cam sutton was great in his role but is he going to be great in a different. We don't know alec highsmith showed Serious promise as a rookie. Is he going to be able to fill buds shoes. We don't know who is gonna fill my kiln spot after they lead steven nelson walk because he's a cap calveley. We hope that uk's core for playing the left tackle can do it. He hasn't done it since college will be hoped that he can get the job done. Zach banner never been a really never been a fulltime start in the nfl. He's going to be right. That's where this is coming from so in terms of. Espn people wanna get pissed. And that's fine but the one thing about. Espn yet understand is that they're only looking at things on paper. So bill barn. Wells stafford wrote that article that identified the section and then just turned it into one article for by steel. Curtain dot com. He's only looking at the roster on paper. He's looking at the depth chart in he saying. This was an atrocious offseason. For the steelers i could. I wrote the article for obvious reasons. I knew it was going to a lot of pages. I knew people are going to want. Wanna talk about it and used ruffle feathers. I have taken that in literally. A physical newspaper enthroned out the window when he said recapping the draft that the steelers should've gone with offensive line. He said the christian darussalam went twenty. Three the steelers drafted twenty four. We know this. He's able to got darah. Saw it would have been better. That's literally what he said. What my response to that is. Unless they trade up. How could they get a player. That was off the board when they drafted. So that's just kind of thinking. Their bill born weld normally does good stuff. I only agree with a lot of the stuff that he does. Not miss case west. Thanks to the anyone else wants to talk on. Locker room put into speak requests. We're gonna go back to the twitter mail bag here. We have a few more questions to get you ban. He says what do you think about the safety group. Seems like they're adding talent there. Just in case they let go of ed next year. Hashtag writer die true. Hashtag underdog season hashtag five-star match. I love dan. thank you very much. So that's a good question safety group. I'm not sure what to think about the safety group. When you have a guy like anton brooks junior. Who is a safety when you have someone like marcus allen. Who's like a hybrid linebacker safety. You just don't know what to do with these players. You throw in miles kill of who's actually listed on the steelers official roster on their website is a linebacker is viewed as a safety but they must have measure linebacker. You just don't know what's going to happen with these players. i do too. I'll tell you this. I think the steelers realized that if they let edmonds go after this season in he hits free agency. There's a good chance that they could actually find someone that could replace him. You can't replace mega fitzpatrick. In my opinion. His intelligence his speed his ball skills that the his resume speaks for itself but israel edmonds on the other hand although he's gotten better any serviceable and he's a die. Hardy rarely ever misses games. Feeling redman's is just kind of another guy. And i hate saying that because he's a first round draft pick and it makes you sick to your stomach when you say that but i feel like he's just another guy and if you're just looking for another guy you can find the other guy so i think that might be the stands the steelers take unless terrell edmonds starts making some plays this year in which case he would be boosting his own free agent stock. All right laurie. She's a longtime listener. She says which second year player do you think. We'll have a breakout year in twenty twenty one hashtag writer. Doctor thank you laurie. She's from across the pond. Okay i'm gonna throw chase claypool out. I think that's the obvious pick. I think everyone would say would be the guy that everyone's gonna say second year player. Yeah claypool. I actually wanted to go in and again. Let's talk about some other players. Before i give you my pick when he's about someone like kevin dotson. It's very difficult to gauge. Whether he has a breakout year and unless an offense of guard is pancake people or they're pulling in their out in space. And it's very obvious to the viewer from this watching television. Wow look at this guy number. Sixty nine plowing devil. It's the only way they're going to get that recognition a lot of the stuff they do on the interiors not to get noticed. It's gonna be tough to gauge same with someone like carlos davis but if i'm gonna pick a player i'll give you one on offense one on defense. Okay so i take alex smith. I think alex smith is going to have a tremendous season. Mike question marks that surround alex highsmith. Not based on his pass rushing ability. No way no shave. No issue reform made to me outside. Smith is all about my questions. Mind you run stopping. Can he set the edge kenny. Come down hill. that's something. The three was so good at the last few seasons debts. Berg that's not big question about highsmith on offense. I really hope it's anthony mcfarland..
