"Your fantasy lineup set. And it's a great. Listen that's great show. If you're if you some information on what to expect in this upcoming game now the second half of the show. We're going to talk about the secondary last Last week show. I said i thought the secondary was still a work in progress and players. Were going to be auditioning and they were. I wanna tell you the story about one player in particular. Though there was in the mix player was drafted in the seventh round. He was a two hundred and forty fifth player. Taken in two thousand twenty one at the start of training champion was in line behind four other players in the slide in slot. Defense one by one. Those players fell and upper rose trae norwood. Who's playing training camp. Practice and pre season earned him the start in his first. Nfl game when the steelers put him at nickelback for the first defensive snap of the game at the start of this off season antoine brooks. Arthur millette nickel guys behind them. Was cameron sutton with james pierre. Coming in for nickel packages to play outside and cameron sutton sliding inside those. Were all ahead of him to play nickelback. He was not in that discussion. He was the backup free safety. He had a shot at dime. Even i was saying i thought he would play in dime i was i was hoping they would give him a chance to earn that role instead. Trade norwood started his first. Nfl game at nickel and he wasn't it wasn't one of those start in name only things where they they start a veteran and in some other guy plays most of the snaps. They do that occasionally. That wasn't this. Traynor would play eighty percent of the defensive snaps and he played in multiple positions. He started in the slot and right off the bat on their first drive. You can see the bills immediately. Identify like there's a new kid bears the rookie seventh round pick and they went after him. He was up to the challenge with help from some other people they they ran a few little you know routes exploiting his his leverage that he was giving only to run into a cameron. Sutton one of the first plays of the game was digs lined up against traynor. Would and traynor would was back a little farther off the line of scrimmage. So they're a quick out to stefan. Digs cameron sutton came in and tackled him. What the defense does. That's how we help players in the slight so he had help. I don't wanna make it sound. Like he was on an island here. No one was on an island. I talked about in the first half to deep safeties known was on an island. Lots of of a pattern matching defenses to get. You know to ease people in a position. Make sure you are just on an island with stuff on digs. But traynor would was up to the challenge when they started figuring out how to attack him and had a little bit of a success with him the steelers swapped him out. Brought in arthur. Millette seasons seasons are similar. Played thirteen snaps but norwood was frankly better so they went back to norwood and when the bills started going after norwood a bit instead of just leaving them in the slot and letting him be like. Hey man you're gonna have to. You're gonna have to cover for this. You know you're gonna have to figure out a way to make this work. They swapped for a few series swapped him and mingka fitzpatrick. It's patrick up in the slot. Which he's not fantastic there. That isn't his best usage right he..

"It wasn't marcus allen but that's who they brought back so all of those made sense and the reason that those players were brought back and they're like why do they cut them and bring them back. Well the best players to cut and bring back or ones that don't have to go through waivers so it's not another team. Just gets dibs on them that they get to choose where they would go and to. These are guys on minimum contracts. So it's not like you're like gonna cut them and then you have to redo their deals. You just going to give them the same deal back that they had and al- always fair in love and war when that when it's all said and done and that's why it was bj's finney rashad coward arthur millette. They all fit that mold of a player that you would release to bring back. It's just kind of the right way to do it. You didn't want you didn't want to do one of the one of the other defensive lineman you don't wanna do like bugs or mondo or or carlos davis because they would have been exposed to waivers so the steelers handled that pretty wisely with how they did. The i situation and there was some people like well. Maybe they'll bring back quincy rochet. I'm like if they're gonna bring it back they wouldn't have exposed him the waivers in the first place they would have kept him and then somebody else so it's kind of a little bit disappointing. Their bum bear reminiscent of czar skipper. But that's what was going on with the steelers just kind of a little bit of rundown before we dive into some numbers here today. So yeah that was a little bit little bit interesting of of how everything went out. So it's been an exhausting couple days and you know what we're probably gonna head take our break early and then really get into the topic or go to talk to. here's after. I gave the rundown of everything going on. But before we do something else that i do want to say and that is today is september second yesterday. Wednesday september i. It was actually my three year anniversary with behind the steel curtain. It was the three year anniversary of the day. My first article was published and that was so that was in september september first two thousand eighteen. The article was predicting. What positions the steelers. We're going to keep on the fifty three man roster and how it was going to break down and that was the first article that i ever did for huntsville. Curtain came in as a volunteer. Started doing it here. I am three years later. This is basically my second sees season as the editor coming up Last year jeff. And i we were he called us co editors but jeff is the one. I looked to him for for more stuff. He is definitely the senior editor. And that's kinda were the work relationship that we have. And then the year. Before that i was the deputy editor so i was able to move up through there but i went back and was doing a search and i it was like it was like before wednesday was twenty two thousand two hundred fifty articles that i had published in three years. So i'm just like man that's crazy that's more than two a day but then when you look at days like wednesday when they're six of them it's it's it's kind of crazy Our output love my time with behind the curtain. Love being able to do podcast write articles. I mean i hear. I am complaining about being exhausted. But i'm getting the live and breathe pittsburgh steelers and i mean it's fantastic. I love it. it's just. I'm so glad that that i could share this time with you. So i'm gonna go ahead. We're going to go ahead and get quick commercial break in now. 'cause when we come back we're going to talk about the offensive line specifically the i'm gonna say ten players at the steelers have because we're going to include zach banner because hopefully he'll be back within within a few weeks and then and this kind of look you know what's the best combinations of stuff that that we be looking at so stick around right now zone. The back pittsburgh steelers.

"How you doing tonight sir. Doing great michael doing great love to hear it No special guests night mostly because there's no football this weekend it's the league wide kind of preseason. The bye week before week one. Jeffrey and i are gonna get into a little bit more funds steals show. Of course this has been a very busy week especially for your pittsburgh steelers and of course around the nfl. So if you've been consuming this information like i've been It's it's been one of those insane weeks across the nfl landscape but I guess really kick things off. There's a ton of news today but maybe we should start off the show on a positive note. Pittsburgh steelers signed curl joseph The former first round. Pick of the oakland raiders. Former cleveland brown. Back to the raiders gets cut. He signed to the practice squad but after his sixty corn teen is expected to make the fifty three man roster. Jeffrey what are your initial thoughts on curl. Joseph the new safety slash linebacker slash Swiss army knife is a mike tomlin described. Traynor would well. What are your thoughts on the pittsburgh. Steelers news player. I've liked carl. Carl joseph is coming out of college. He's he's not quite the player he's had some injuries but getting him to the practice squad get him for like you know nothing claiming him claiming off waivers even just signed him like a cheap deal. This is kind of a thing. And i i like the signing. I like the you know giving a guy with that kind of pedigree that kind of experience in the nfl because he was a good player when he was healthy. I like it. I like bringing them on board in this in any way affects the status of terrell edmonds. Could he pushed him for his spot. I don't think so. No if you look up what karl. Joseph is like even last year. He he can't. He's not a coverage guy like he was not a coverage guy when he came into the league his injuries of made him significantly less of coverage guy. So i don't. I don't see him being a threat to really any of the main. Any of the main safeties are defensive backs because he's just not that he's not that guy. It is pretty interesting. How will the steelers use him. Then in your opinion what what can spot should we expect in the lineup at will planning special teams which we expect out of Joseph they call. It was the plate special teams in oakland. I wouldn't doubt that he could is good tackler. I actually think. Karl joseph is a good candidate to get the marcus allen treatment. The like play some linebacker here I think he could get work in dime against certain teams. I don't think he's a deep safety kind of guy. I e you can use them in joan zone but he was always good in more of a linebacker or robber type zones those type zones. He was always better at that. That's where he got his interceptions that's made most of his plays so for me. I think he is a candidate to fill marcus allen death linebacker role And maybe get in on some some interesting some packages now jerry. Dulack was the man who broke the news that curl joseph not only signing the team. But it's expected to come up to that fifty three men roster after quarantine period in that scene tweet. He mentioned the pittsburgh. Steelers are more likely still going to add another defensive back They really haven't addressed that nickel corner spot. Arthur led of course. He signed back to the team today after the steelers play. Some guys i are. We'll get to that but it seems like there's still a a fairly substantial hole on that on that nickel corner spot. Do you expect them to still bring someone in because right now the way. You look at the roster. It doesn't seem like there's that guy and it looks like there's a number of free agent. Second i would. I expect them to pursue somebody one of my favorite mos interesting things about this. Preseason is that aside from cameron sign right. Outside of cameron sudden every single player they have put in the slot in like early in the game is listed as a safety or a linebacker because these are the guys these are the guys that have played in nickel or dime in the slot early on in any of the preseason games should antoine junior. They listed him as a safety. Arthur millette they listen to him. As a safety miles. Killebrew played there. They list him is a linebacker. Marcus allen has played in the slot he's listed as a linebacker and traynor norwood who is listed as a safety so it's three safeties and linebackers Which i find interesting because the steelers are always grabbing these kind of hybrid players and using them. Safeties guys like a make. Patrick where people are like is this guy. Linebacker is he. Is he a cornerback. Like what is like these guys that can play all those positions but don't really fit one perfectly. The steelers love collecting them. We've got a whole slew of them and they're trying them at the nickel spot. So i'm going to be very interesting to see if they do sign someone you know. What type of player they sign. But i'm also interested if they're unable to upgrade the position at all and how they will play the dime role. You know the the nickel slot because it's clear to me for what they were doing. Preseason they are really still looking for that kind of safety who can play in in the nickel or dine. Defenses and inside corner yahoo just the way this roster is being constructed. I would also assume that a body is coming in. I believe Jimmy moreland was one of the names that are floating out there. played for the washington football team last year. I've pretty solved player. He was cut on the injury designation. But it's still expected to play in week. One be healthy enough to play for week one. So if there's a name to watch. I feel like that's the one i throw out there. If the steelers weren't able to swing a trade which at this point seems a little less likely although the steelers still have a ton of cap space that something we have to keep in the back of our minds are kind of stepping away from the more positive news of course but staying in secondary. Joe haden today a little bit of news with him. That's him the steelers will not be working at a contract. This offseason This i guess This training camp. Of course we know. The steelers don't negotiate deals during the regular season slash. Postseason and joe. Hayden is expected to test free agency next summer. I'm curious what were your initial thoughts to that. And do you think this is going to be the end of the joe. Haden era in pittsburgh after the season. I always like the steelers. Don't like to extend guys early unless they're like their top most valuable players like it. Y ben rothlisberger can get a new contract anytime you want it. A but most of the time they go pretty close to their deal ending so wanted to hit me here either. Joe haden wants money that they're not willing to give him or cannot give him looking at what they're trying to do right now and so they're saying hey played out a year or they really are ready to move on from him Maybe they think that. Highly of james pierre and they're basically just grooming james fiero to be joe hayden's replacement next season. That's a possibility i. I'm leaning towards some finding a way to sign. Joe haden cut the salary. Cap will be bigger. There'll be more money. I i don't i think it's smart for him. Money wise to wait till next year and played out and see because there might be some teams with that much cast base saying. Hey we can blow money for two years on joe haden and give us a give us a guy who can come in and fill in here for a bit i. I would prefer that to be the steelers. The steelers will have some space that could use..

"It is time on this happy. Football friday to bring in brian. Anthony davis he is with behind the steel curtain also. Fine football analyst. Cbs sports talk radio goody sports the more we are very blessed and glad to have him here. He is i. Brian coach gordie. How are you. We're doing very fine on this football friday because high school football gets underway tonight. Aside from the steelers plan so we have different high school coaches on the show today. Let's start off with the qb position. Four pittsburgh from coach gordie's research and so on ad appeared ben rothlisberger mason rudolph one two. But you're going to tell us they don't go to fast everything. You look up coach. Gordie go ahead. Yes so right now. It's one into because if you're looking at it right now that's the way it is on this moment on the day of the final preseason game but the problem with that is when we talked about this a lot last week you have two guys that have showcase their talent and are are looking like you. You look like you have to cuba to which means that you also have an established. Qb three and joshua dobbs so without being being said you're a surplus of talent. And i i'm kind of alone in this. I'm in the minority. When i say that i really think one of these guys is going trade it and you hear a lot. People saying that Who's gonna give up for mason. Rudolph desperate teams will give up picks. It might not be on tuesday on cut day but you might even see something happened the week after week one and with that being said that could very well happen so a report came out this week out of pittsburgh saying that not so fast on mason. Rudolph being number two. You're gonna see. Dwayne hoskins get an opportunity against the number ones of carolina panthers because remember pittsburgh tests for preseason games. This is only the third for the carolina panthers and the rest of the league's excluding dallas. So big that. They're going to have to play more guide to establish spots because they've had less preseason games. So you're going to see a lot of the first team defense early on and wayne haskins is going to have an entire hat to shine. And if he signs they have a decision to make well certainly bryant. As i've looked at information this thing to tomlin he keeps stressing the arm. Talent is we're jumps out of thomas. He definitely has aren't talent mean he. He probably has one of the strongest arms in that quarterback real however. He doesn't have the savvy of ben rothlisberger and experience. Nobody in that room. Does you know. And so ben safe there but you're also looking for possible error parents and at this point it does not seem like it's mason. Rudolph i mean. They brought him back on a one year deal. But if you could move a quarterback in their quarterback meaty teams. You just saw aj mccarron go down In atlanta he's there number two. You know there's a situation where you could bring a guy in like a mason. Rudolph fourth fifth round pick a six round pick and with a surplus of talent that you have and the fact that you have joshua dobbs that could hold out that number three spot you know you would move one of those guys. We'll said because again if brutal has not thrown a touchdown pass yet. This makes it very interested in the days ahead will certainly be following up with you. Is there anything else you'd like to say about players on the line and so on and then we'll get into tonight's game you just go head to game with carolina. Go ahead ryan i. It's going to be really interesting because we're going to see how the offensive line completely shapes out where we're seeing some of those battles now. There is a big problem at the slot corner position since losing mike helton to the cincinnati. Bengals the free agency it has. Nobody has really claimed that spot. You know you have some young talent with camp sutton justin lane even james pierre but you have had some guys go down with injury and form. Brooks's been injured. He was. He seemed like he was going to be the answer. Slot corn now. Not only with the injured. He's now cut injured waived injured as of the cut down to eighty the other day. So he's no longer there. Arthur millette who they got from the jets who they thought would be very good enough. Spot is also injured. So there's really no clear cut player to play that slot position so slot corners wide open. And that's that's starting to really scare people in pittsburgh. It is anything carolina you expect tonight. Outside of the number of players are going to be playing the only thing to look at. I mean you're not going to see a guy like christian mccaffrey a. You might not see much from sam darnold. If you see anything you might see a few snaps and that's about it so it's really not the fact that you're playing carolina. It's the fact that you're you're up playing against first team and that's got be exciting for the pittsburgh steelers. They're still you know great nameless faces. It doesn't matter who it who it is but the pedigree that they are first. Teamers is really exciting. Because you're going to measure up against a first team defense and vice versa. You gonna measure up against the first team offense as well and if this is a tonight that does not matter what matters is the performance of the players. That get a chance to 'cause you're gonna see twos threes and oars going against one and that's great to see because we'll see what cream rises to. The top is ready macho man. Savage used to say well explained it does not matter the score because they have things to figure out briefly to tennessee. Tannehill out cove where we heard this story before with the tennessee. Titans i you know. A this greatly affected the pittsburgh steelers season last year. Because because of the titans now. You've got their quarterback you their head coach. They've got so many players afflicted with it there. Somebody's not being complained and back tempe. Just a somebody. That's been a situation where the things are not going the way they're supposed to be going when you have one out of thirty two. It's this was if this is if there were six or seventeen and that's one thing when it's consistently one team or two teams than that means there's compliance not going on and there's a lazy faire attitude in tennessee it's happening you know what happened with new england and so on and even having with the cfl yes as we finish today's national banana day. Yes or no bananas great. You know my favorite bananas are when you would go down to disneyworld chocolate covered frozen banana sure and earlier this week would dana split day and you would like this originating nineteen or four sold for ten cents in late zero pennsylvania. Really are you got there. You go sir. Also bananas can float in water quickly. You're gonna tell us. The country that produces the most bananas in the world is a columbia is india. Is it ecuador peru. I'm gonna say. India good way to and you have one eat a banana. Go steal awesome. Thank you cover banana. Their gordy go forth i..

"To move you forward and welcome back steeler fans. Welcome back to part to this episode of steelers frighten at six pack. If you're watching me live you know. It's not friday night. At least not in pittsburgh it's friday afternoon. We're still a few hours away from the steelers. Panthers preseason finale in carolina at seven thirty. am on now. Because i can't do a show during the game so we have to get the we have to turn the six pack into a happy hour kind of. That's why i'm joining you. And i'm glad you're with me and hopefully you're enjoying the show. It's a piggyback on. We talked about in the first half and that's some battles performances to keep an eye on some individual players and andrew. Wilbert says steelers need to cut. Benny no room. Brad jewett says ben. He's gonna go one hundred fifty and two touchdowns and i don't know if you're going to get the opportunity to rest four hundred fifty yards but if he has kind of pace that might go well for him. Brad jewett says of benny snell. Who's a very very popular figure to talk about both in a positive and negative sense and he says i'm with the accre meeting creates no shots now making the fifty three unless he does what i mentioned right there with you man. I don't know you know it all depends a lot of these players. All they need is one one champion. And the coaches room. Take to keep them on the roster. We saw that with invincible right. I mean they were all all wanted to cut vista poly but critics important champion. I was the head coach. And that's how we get. Stay on the team. But you don't know how. How some of these guys feel about snell or samuels. I mean danny. Smith might love samuels for what he does recess special teams and i might be enough to keep him on the roster. Maybe it's samuels. Previous relationship with matt canada and in college canada spent a lot of years a lot of different teams in college as coordinator position coach. And everything head coach for it for For maryland so that might be enough to keep samuels on the team. It's just you just never know all right. My next topic watchman on topic necessarily gonna continue to talk about some players who looking forward to watching our friday and another one. I'm kind of intrigued about. I didn't think i would be. But until until tommy mentioned him in his press conference and that's trae norwood the seventh round. Pick out of oklahoma. The what he called the swiss army knife when he announced draft pick way back in april. Evidently he's gonna he's gonna get a chance to to play in the nickel and as you might know. The steelers aren't settled at that position quite yet. The conventional wisdom is that cameron sutton will be the the slot corner When they When they go to sub packages and simulate. James pierre play on the outside when they played you know. I guess based defensive which they don't do a whole heck of a lot these days and sutton we'll be the the the outside corner. But if you read. Jeffrey benedict's piece the other day. There really isn't a A solid mike. I mean there's a solid. Mike helton replacement on the roster. But it really isn't a somebody at that level which i guess is reasonable when you think about how good mike helton really is is the slot corner and overall player Antrim brooks was was a favourite to make the team early in training camp in through the preseason but he was waived the other day with an injury. And as far as i know he still hasn't been resigned. Nobis claimed him so If he's not on the roster than maybe the duties will go to. Arthur millette the veteran from the jets Or maybe she's gonna be sutton and in. James hair will shave james pierre. We'll we'll go to the outside when when sutton moves inside. That's been talked about off season. A lot of people are high on pierre Jeffrey called him a solid replacement assault. An option i should. I should i should say for like a steven nelson. But maybe that's all you can get right. Now is a solid option for to replace a guy like nelson on the outside because nelson say what you want about him. He was pretty darn cornerback when he was here for two years. So that's maybe something they have to they have to do you know i know. A lot of people are are still calling for them to go out and make a trade for like a stefan gilmore or or. Wait for somebody to get cut allah. Joe haden a years ago and pick that player up. But you just don't know what you're thinking about. These guys in chains. Pierre's that is one such player that you just don't know how they feel about him if there is high on him as a lot of fans are then maybe they. They're confident that that he could do the job and continue to get better at that position. And you know maybe it's going to have to be bad. Baptism by fire for him this year. As a as an outside corner whenever Sutton moves inside. Maybe that's the plan. It's just going to have to be that way like i was saying Months ago you know if you're gonna cut a player like steven nelson for as productive as he was for as good as he was and again a lot of people kind of pooh-poohed the corner he was after he got cut. But i think it was more based on emotion because of similar things he said on the way out the door because they couldn't come to an agreement on on salary on on a contract renegotiation.

"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..

"Camp recap podcast. It has been a while since we last met at moving our meeting. Technically but since i was last doing recap podcast and training camp based on the fact that last week the last time they had practiced which i believe was tuesday. It was rained out. Mike tomlin decided to just cancel practice. They had gotten through seven shots and then all of a sudden the. I guess it was thunder some lightning in the area. And they said we're just going to can't it. We're just going to canada. So we didn't do a training camp recap podcast. After that based on the fact that there was nothing to really report but they were back at practice on. Saturday this is coming off of thursday's preseason win over the philadelphia eagles in philadelphia. Twenty six to fourteen and there was a lot to talk about going to start the recap off with the team's offense of captain that is ben rothlisberger having a very very bad day at the office. Rothlisberger in team sessions as anytime. They're doing any will team drill so that's eleven on eleven at seven shots. That's even seven on seven. He did not have a good day. I believe he threw four interceptions during team drills today on saturday and i understand that. There's probably a lot of people that are concerned. Let's keep things in perspective repreive. Espn says the first play of the second eleven on eleven period has make. If it's patrick making a diving interception of ben rothlisberger she continues after throwing an interception on the first play of the last eleven eleven roethlisberger's i this period get swallowed up by alex highsmith. But he can't hold onto the ball but it was still a nice defensive play then seven on seven drills brook prior reports rothlisberger now picked off as he overthrows hebron in james peer. Snags it on the first play. Rothlisberger entity 48-second drill throwing an interception to arthur millette locally he was targeting juju smith. She's dress she reports. it's three interceptions and team periods. So i'm sorry i misspoke earlier. Three not four three interceptions team drills today. Just not a good day. I do think it's important to note. Though there have been training camps where rothlisberger enters with a goal in. Mind that is. I'm not going to throw interceptions at all. And i'd have to go back. And look at this specific years that he said that and then the correlation but if i recall those training camps he did a good job of protecting the football during camp however what happened after that when the games actually counted was not indicative of how he played during training camp meaning the did camps that he threw a lot of picks..

"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.

"Getting ready to dive into that. Twitter mailbag my writer. Dai crew did not let me down. I gotta be honest. I was sweating a little bit. I put this tweet out earlier in the morning earlier than i usually do in only have like one person. That's a question i'm thinking. Oh my gosh. I'm not going on the green room app tonight. I can't. I can't rely on someone to call in an help with this show and then i re tweeted it and then started to catch fire here. We go believers says with the good reports of fryer heath thing he some summit fryer youth. Obviously can we expect to see him more than iran. I mean he can actually blog catch. I think that depending on how fryer does and remember the. The pads are going on for the first time today. Wednesday so with that being said if fryer mute can block improve that he is capable in that regard. I would not be shocked if jozy mad. Canada have certain offensive packages. Maybe not a lot but certain offense packages where fryer meath is on. The field in iran is not. I don't think from what i've read in. What i've talked to people that know more about it tonight. You canada's not a big proponent of the two tight end set so we'll see how this division of labor between lebron fryer me's goes down. It's going to be something to watch good question. All right paul ask. I really liked the recent news. That matt canada seems to plan to involved eric than the offense. What positive effects would utilizing derek wide more. Have from your perspective hash writer. Dr drew thank you paul so i think here i'm looking at this and and utilizing derek. What d you can't utilize. Derek watt as a pass catcher as a route runner. Unless you used. Eric watt i as a run blocker. I hope that makes sense if they don't use derek. What is a fullback in the traditional sense lineup in the backfield shuffle. Your feet create a whole if they don't use him there then it's nothing else will work a no one's going to bite on a derek watt wheel route if he's never in the game and then suddenly gets in inserted into the lineup. This is the predictability that had randy feeder written. It was horrible. It was horrible and so based on that. I think it's important that they can use him in the traditional sense then they can start to expand. That's how you think about John kuhn who played up in green for all these years. Even dan kreider for the steelers back in the drew mattis era. The bill cower era kreider is used enough that you were good to have that little you. Fake the hand off you turn in dan kreider. Were just kind of release out in the flat and you connect. There's an easy five ten your game. You have to be able to use him the way you're supposed to first and then you expand so. That's a good question paul. Okay next question from justin. The browns ended up cutting greedy williams. Deeb lead the steelers will scoop up another castaway browns quarterback and rejuvenate his career. While just an. I am not in the know when it comes to the cleveland browns will be completely honest with you and greedy williams. I know he's been hurt a lot. But would the steelers be interested. I think they would be. Would they get him on the waiver. Wire probably not. There's going to be teams. That are much higher on that Waiver wire. i'm sure they would take him. But yeah greedy. Williams could be a really good quarterback. He's been plagued with injuries. Oh for short all right. let's go to the next. one in. Mendez says any guesses on a surprise cut by the end of camp surprise cuts. If i'm thinking about a surprise cut remember these are not players like No one would be surprised at jordan. Derogates why they drafted a punter. Okay so that that would be. Obviously it wouldn't be a shocker. No one really surprised if jalen samuels gets cut why they drafted najji harris. There's only gonna keep so many running backs funding about surprise cut. I'm gonna go and say that if somehow. Bj finney were cut Let's say that they they feel like jc has now or is better at backup center and kendrick. Green is the starter in guard. They like someone like rashad coward. More and bj getting would be a surprise for sure on the defensive side of our to try to give you a defensive player. That would be a surprise cut. I'm going to go to ahah louder. Milk frazee allowed him. It does make the team look awful for the organization. They traded into the fifth round to get him. They gave up before round. Pick in twenty twenty twos draft. But i think that's why it would be so shocking. So there you amend as my answer pit sport bod said. Is this the last year for iran if pad farm you shows out. Do you see a future with them. Both on the team the hebron had all those. They redid his contract. He had all this void years. could he return. He could. I think he does like it in. Pittsburgh i just don't know about the cost in farms. Is that future a tight end. Do you need and eric brown. I'm gonna say. This is eric g bronze last year in pittsburgh and then he will find a new team for twenty twenty two. Brian haynes he asked why are you. What are you most looking at during training camp. Okay so i'm not going to training camp. If anyone out there is listening and they are going to training camp. Please let me know. Hit me up on twitter at j hartman. Agr tnn underscore p. I t i would love for you. Especially if you're close get some video. It can be a cellphone video. But if they're doing red zone red zone work and they're going to urine where you're sitting. Take some film sending my way. I would love to see it. i would use it. I would put an article out about it. Hopefully you're able. Maybe you're able to do that. Who am i most looking forward to at training camp. I really wanna see all these players have been talked about your time. At friar meath has been getting a lot of publicity earlier in mandatory minicamp was james pier. I wanna see nausea harris. Then might sound crazy in some people might be like. Oh my gosh jeff. That's such an obvious answer. But we haven't seen him yet. He's a first round draft pick. I wanna see him with pads on. I want to see him. Just making fools look silly and excited for him. Not just in training camp also in the preseason. That's who've again if i'm gonna give you a defensive player. I'm really looking forward to seeing. That's obviously someone that. I am looking forward to seeing some the cornerbacks whether it's antler defensive acts antoine books junior arthur millette james pierre even just my boy justin lane even my boy. Justin lane love to see this. Brian s. two more questions. Can we expect to. Our skippered of return is a camp body. now i wouldn't think sale. Not after bringing in melvin ingram. I wouldn't say that you wanna bring in. Twos are skipper as a camp body. I dunno near not not at this juncture not at this juncture for sure. Last question for brian are we getting a bt se were slash rider crew gathering for a game. Well brian to be completely honest. And that's not a bad question in one thing that i've really irked me about how everything went down with the pant pandemic and it's it's no one's fault. I'm not blaming the pandemic. it just didn't happen in twenty twenty. That was the year. The steelers didn't have a first round draft pick member chase klay pueblo. At i think people forget he was a second round pick and we decided since myself. Dave and brian all live very close in proximity to one another in the same town. We decided because there. There's a manny brothers in our town that we were going to host a draft party. Ensues is going to be a everyone get together. We're going to watch the draft. We're gonna have fun. We're gonna laugh. We're gonna tell stories. We're going to do a live feed from the primanti brothers. I know brian. Anthony davis he had a connection with one of the managers. It per manny's and they were going to give us like this back room and reserve..

"My friends training camp so shannon this is this is your two a days and so we've been to have the your day so you need to be in shape for the season and i'm going to be i'm going to be it's gonna be like casey hampton. I'm gonna wanna make sure that you're in good shape. He'll be like casey hampton yet. Five to five to sit you down because you're not condition for the for the whole week by run time around that mile. Run dorey walking in the middle. Tony as tony is a runner. So we don't. We don't even have to worry about that theory so they're your runner. Yeah the group that. I was always dead last. I mean soak so far behind. I don't even see anybody anymore. So low i am. Yeah as long as you're finishing my man so check that out chris. This week they're going to be talking about the five most crucial guys for the steelers this season. And what they're going to be doing. When we say power half hour they're gonna do their own power rankings. Each and every week it's going to be steeler oriented and they're going to be counting down so that'll be great. And you know me with casey kasem. I always love a good countdown so this is going to get power half hour. Check that out and check out all of the. Bts's shows as well. Let's get back into this now guys. Let's bring up some players. I that have shined. We're going to go around the room. Well just a with the two of you and tony. You made a mention to a guy earlier. And i'm pretty sure that you wanna talk about antoine barracks. So what are your thoughts. So far is and one brooks a starter for the pittsburgh steelers based on what he's been doing so far or is this just getting the man some extra work i think right now. It's just. It's just getting him some extra work. They're they're trying to see what they have in him. If i remember correctly from last year his draft profile he seemed to be A player without a real position as kind of how he described them from. I remember correctly so you know there's somebody that can can find a home. He's versatile obviously if he's a man with a position that means he's he could play hopefully several maybe not well but if he's a you know if he can find a way to find a niche is a slot corner for them. That's that's solves a huge problem. I mean he might not be my felton but if he can if he can play that role and you can slide cam sutton to the outside and leave him out there. I mean i think that's that could be huge. It's it's obviously too early to tell yet. I mean it's it's as shannon. It's football without pads. So but i'm gonna be really interested to see what he does Once the pastor popping and of course wants the preseason starts so care and brooms e says a brooks can hit but coverages suspect shannon. Do you think brooks is a legitimate candidate and can help push cameron sentenced to the outside like tony just said. Do you feel that. This makes that defensive backfield so much stronger and do you feel that. We were discounting antoine brooks before this preseason started when i had to write the draft article about his selection he was one of the highest rated tacklers You know college football. He's a sure tackler Excellent fundamentals that technique He's very aggressive through the ball. Big weakness is coverage and I think you run like a four six four but you guys can overcome that The way the steelers used elton. I think they would like to have brooks because he could be similar. Hilton thought was weaker coverage and he was better on everything else but he got better coverage his time went on I like arthur millette at At slot. And i think he's going to have a real shot at taking that position because he's very physical. He looks like greg. Lloyd like a smaller version of greg lloyd And he plays very aggressive. He's good blitzer. And i think you'll be end up veteran coverage and brooks so i think ended up using canada. Committee approach Especially packages you know in certain situations because works would be really good against heavy run teams like the titans or the ravens because rooks can really come up in pound that run defense but I think brooks's got a real shot to to make any impact this year. I just don't miss the full-time start. Now you brought up. Arthur millette and mike tomlin's already say an art saint him a lot. What have you noticed from. Alette the other jets defensive back that everybody wanted brian. Poole who looks like it's going to the saints now as of as of today. Possibly everybody wanted brian poole. But everybody wouldn't melik hooker in that defensive backfield as well but when you have guys like brooks and you have a guy like arthur millette. Maybe that's why they didn't go look their way because they knew what they had shannon. Yeah millette. Actually the way they fight that slot in the past without malaysia is a better than pores And he's he can actually play the or safety say gives them that position versatility and I just think that that that's why he was brought in And you know you. The people were talking about hooker but his injury tendencies You know i just. You can't count on that you know it'd be great to work that but there was a big gamble so i'm really happy with me. You know what. Tony defa was so excited when the steelers signed arthur malek because he thought his name was mullet and he had a great one of the eighties days i need. I need to see pictures of both tony. Shannon white in highschool. I need high school pictures of you guys change that much. I just had the mullet and my face was thinner. And that's about it. But i didn't change. I looked exactly like this and just a lot of hair. Well back in the eighties. I looked like the guy that people say. I am When they when a trashy online. That's what i was in my teen years with the the hair and the clothes that i wore. I don't get that. Why are they trash in your mind. Tony i find you delightful. Well thank you thank you. I don't know. I just. I try to keep it down the middle when i talk about sports so i don't know what it is probably off wanted. Gosh what you're in west. Virginia you have boots for that stuff. It's vlad any waiters. Yeah it's like the the loan sharks Limousine driver in rocky just hated rocky for no reason to rocky reference to love it. Hey let's let's talk about other guys that are shining here. Were that we need to see something of. And i'm going to bring up. I think it's jan or it could be on. It could be jenner yawn. I'm not sure if i could get it up. Why can i get it up the kebe for laughing at that. It looks like i would say jan. What do you think cassius marsh have. We every heard anything about cassius marsh in the first four days so far or has he been anonymous. Let's start with tony. I haven't heard anything Who is the guy's name it. They had a couple of years. He was kind of a veteran late twenties. He he was. He was a backup. Linebacker amy amy curl gigolo. No not him he was i kept signing him and jay. Rohn elliott elliott. That's kind of the like yeah there. Yeah like if you if you wanna glued tikolo in too. I think that's abc comparison. Because i guess you're dependent they're capable but they're not really capable of doing a whole heck of a lot. I just like you know filling in occasionally but they're not gonna make a lot of big plays that's kind of marsh reminds me of all right. We gotta do this because this is what kind of show this is. I gotta bring up port and a hear hucker. We're still talking about the shawn watson a blue massage people. I cannot confirm nor deny. I don't know all's i know is if that's the truth than Mr craft in new. England is is hoping assigned dish on Gosh woo you stop that a. Here's a guy to bring up. So let me finish up with cassius marsh. I think marsh makes this team. And i think he is your guy on special teams and he reminds me a little bit now. He's bounced around a lot but.

"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..

"So we'll have to see with with what's going on at the cornerback position our quarterbacks going to be able to throw faster against the steelers in there for they're not going to get those sack and pressure numbers that they would otherwise i don't know but then you also bring back devon bush. I laid this out on a previous episode that when it came to the numb strictly with the numbers when it came to sacks the where the steeler saw the biggest drop off was after the loss of devon bush not not after losing my hidden not in games where they lost buddy pre but where you saw the biggest difference was not having devon bush now seven bush was always there with those other two. So it's just it is what it is but that's the numbers that's the number. So do i think the steelers could improve on their pressures and their sacks and they're and they're hurries and things like that. I think you're going to see higher numbers strictly because of the seventeen game schedule. But what's most important is that you look at those percentages. How're those percentages looking like that. Thirty five point one percent pressuring dad last year. They don't have to improve it. they don't have to go up. Five percent dated from twenty nine hundred. Twenty twenty if they just maintain that that would still be fantastic or even a slight improvement would be wonderful so to me. Looking at the steelers defense is looking at the strength of this team. And so many people were down on the steelers. And they talked about ben rothlisberger and i talked about the offensive line. That talk about this talk about that but really the big thing is the defense and the defense. Every lost that they had was a calculated loss. They knew they couldn't afford bud. Dupree and that's part of the reason why he drafted alex smith the year before and if alex smith wouldn't have had the season that he did last year they probably would've looked for ed rusher higher in this draft to help replace to pre the fact that they didn't tell you that they think that they have something in outside smith and the steelers could have signed mike hilton camp sudden and chose not to. They chose gamespot sutton over mike hilton. The steelers chose to make steven nelson a cap casualty. That's what that was the decision they made so they and they didn't go out and add anyone. Major i mean that like arthur millette in the mix is like one of the additions that they had came from another team but really they didn't go out and make any big splash moods which tells you. They're pretty happy with what they have in general. So i'm i'm still looking at this defense to lead the way for twenty twenty one and i'm really hoping that it's their pressure sacks all those things that they do with getting the quarterback whether they're having to do with the blitz or out the blitz i don't wanna see them having to blitz on every play in order to have any success But it does seem that when they do. They are getting some overall success. And that's what we want to see based on the numbers so those are my geeky numbers for you this week. I hope they weren't too geeky. And i still want to ask if you can sti superfan dad. That's my twitter handle s. t. l. Ourse superfan dad at gmail.com. My email hit me up asking you stats question. i'll give credit for. It will dive into the numbers. And then we'll get into real steelers football for twenty twenty one. So i can't wait to get back to you next week because the steelers might already be meeting at the facility by that time and i know in two weeks already practiced.

"Are questioning zach. Banner in a lot of ways. They're saying really well. What does that banner bring to this team. He doesn't have a lot of experience. He did win the right tackle job over chew chor for last season pods. How do we know what he's going to be like as a full time starter. I think zach banner is going to surprise a lot of people. I wouldn't be shocked if by the end of the season. Or maybe even at the midway point of this twenty twenty one season. We're talking about zach. Banner the way we once talked about. Marcus gilbert marcus gilbert. Meaning that if you recall when he was drafted in the second round on a florida everyone thought he was a future at left tackle. This didn't work out. He moves over the right tackle and he thrives he was a he was a great to a tackle. He degrading pass. Protection was great and run block. Blocking and i will never forget him shutting down khalil mack multiple times von miller. I think zach banner is going to surprise a lot of people. He has really been in my opinion. If you think about like pent up energy boyd zach. Banner have a lot of that right now. He's just itching to go. I mean just raring to go. He was he won that job last season and then his t- tears his acl in week. One he's going to be motivated. He's going to be ready to go. I think he's going to surprise a lot of people. The next surprise on my list is another one that a lot of fans might strongly disagree with. That's terrell edmonds. I think terrell edmonds again a lot of there's a theme here folks the last three especially. It's all about motivation in the last one is going to be about motivation. You talk about benny snell. And he's proven himself to other. Nfl teams at the same time. You talking about zach. Banner his finally motivated to get a chance to to be a starter. Terrell edmonds did not have his fifth year option picked up so he's probably. Oh my gosh probably irks him. He wanted to stay with pittsburgh he wanted. That fifth year. Option once that second contract and he didn't get minka got it he did not get it and to trail. Edmonds has to be motivated. He has to be really ready to go. And saying you know what. I'm gonna go out there kenny. Get his hands on the football more. That's the biggest question i think he will. I think he's going to take that next step. I know that keith butler defensive coordinator has said that he just needs to play faster. Not physically faster the mentally processing. And when he according to butler his words online when he can do that he's gonna get his hands on. The ball is going to be around the baltimore. So terrell edmonds. I think he's going to be a surprise. The last surprise just happens to be one of the newest dealers and that's trae turner trae turner trae turner's the guard. When dave decastro was released trae turn gets picked up and no one really knows what to expect from. Trae turn no one knows. Is it going to be good going to be bad. who knows. But i'll tell you this trae turn in terms of motivation has a ton signed a one year deal with pittsburgh. He's trying to prove that he still has plenty left in the tank. The story the story. Line the narrative. I know day. Scofield wrote this article for the the website behind the steel curtain. dot com. is he indicastors. Storylines are essentially one in the same except a castro is going to have to have another procedure done in his ankle. According to turner in the steelers would not have signed him at. You still hurt. He's healthy. He's ready to go. Kenney rejuvenated see his career in pittsburgh if so would that mean another contract with pittsburgh or someone else he is going to be motivated for schorr. And lastly my honorable will mention for surprises is a player in the defensive. Backfield that no one is talking about. That's arthur millette arthur. Millette arthur millette is a player who played for the jets. He's played safety. He's played cornerback in. I didn't know much about him. But jeffrey benedict wrote a great film room on him. And it was essentially titled. What does our thermal. Ed bring to the steelers defense. And he broke down how he's not perfect in fact. One of the most notable plays in terms of bad plays from a lead was when he gave up a huge touchdown. Pass to dante moncrieff. I know bad but still i think millette versatility. His experience is going to help him. I think he makes the team. And i wouldn't be shocked. Arthur millette is the one that fills that my hilton role. We haven't heard much from millette. We'll see if he can turn some heads in training camp but there you have it. Those are my surprises and disappointments for this twenty twenty one. Nfl steelers season. I hope maybe disagree with me. I wanna remind everyone if you want to communicate with me not on twitter leisurely jeff. I'm not a twitter person. Okay that's fine. Go to behind the curtain. Dot com every single podcast.

"Today as you know we are breaking down my kind of expectations. And what i wanna see out of the defensive side of the football we got through the defensive line in the linebackers both spots so far and are kind of looking at the defensive backs and really. There's probably the most amount of question marks out of any position on this defense of course in the secondary One guy that we know won't have any question marks surrounding him as we start with. The corners is joe haden. he's been a fixture of the steelers secondary for a very long time. Now i do believe this is year five for joe. Hayden as pittsburgh steelers. Cornerback whether or not this is last year. Doing it remains to be seen. But he is a voice in that locker room and really. He's he's been the steelers best corner since he signed in this team five years ago. So i want to see out of joe is if he's still got it and if he can still play at a high level i wanna see the steelers put some money down on the table and keep joe haden on this team until he doesn't have it anymore. He's a guy that i think means way too much to this roster he's beloved by everyone in the nfl. He's one of the very few guys that i've never heard a negative thing. Said about really the only two guys. I can think of that or like that larry fitzgerald. Joe haden beloved across the entire. Nfl it doesn't matter what team you play for. It could be a bitter bitter rival. We know he left the browns but browns fans still love that guy. People love joe haden he. He means too much in that locker room. He means too much on the field if he can still go. I wanna see the steelers. Joe haden and play out his days as a member of the pittsburgh steelers and i want to see them. Get him a playoff win. He's still hasn't wanna playoff game in his career. That is a tragedy boy. Oh boy i wanna see that guy get a ring it if anything. But we'll start with the playoff game. Pass joe hayme because we know. He's the constant in the cornerback. Room the new guy that will be a starter outside of joe. Hain one mr cam son. He got the extension steven nelson got the boot. How does he. Oh good cam son can be. I wanna see if he can do better than steven nelson. Of course the steelers kind of hitch their wagon a camp sutton as their new starter. They didn't drafting one until very late in the draft. And even then. I'm not sure if traynor norwood is a corner. I think he's more of a safety. But again mike tomlin called swiss army knife. We will have to see on. Traynor would but i really do wanna see what cam sutton now will do as a starting corner. He's looked really good at times playing the outside. It'll be interesting. Of course james peer. He might as jeffrey benedict film guru at behind the steel curtain house said james. Peer might have the best technique when it comes this team which is crazy to think of an undrafted free agent from a year ago having that much talent so there might be an open competition here but by all means kempson has a contract. He is going to have the first crack at the starting job if he can be as good as steven nelson for a fraction of the price my word. What a win for the pittsburgh steelers that would change everything. Kam-sun maybe he's the guy that can finally reverse the curse of the steelers drafting corners. They haven't got one in a very long time. I guess since. I taylor but cam son. He has the potential to be the first drafted corner since then to look good in the secondary for the pittsburgh steelers so by all means i think all steeler fans are rooting for cam son to do. Just that after cam son. We know there's a massive hole in that nickel spot sutton was kind of the backup their gill really camp sutton was coming back. Spot in the secondary last year but The steelers lose. Mike cam sons more than likely playing on the outside. What does that mean for the nickel position. We know the steelers defense kind of changed a little bit when they found mike hilton as an undrafted. Free agent who bounced around from a couple of teams. They were able to develop defense. Were the nickel corner. Can go hunt quarterbacks. Really that was exciting and something. Not many teams really know teams have ever done so it. It changed the secondary two of the things really. There's two big factors here at that nickel corner position number one will the steelers try to run the same scheme and i really. That comes down to who the player at that spot is going to be the traditional corner coral. That's more of a coverage guy or if they want that guy to continue to hunt the quarterback and really by the sounds of some of these press conferences. It sounds like the steelers still want. That guy hunt. Quarterbacks do they have that person on roster is at arthur. Millette is a trucker brown. Is james peer heck cam sudden bunk down in those packages. We are not certain. Of course. I guess that will be answered. Come week one. Once we find out how this team plans to roll out there the players right now. We don't know the answer either. That so really number one was a scheme and number two is who is that guy going to be and can they be just as good as my kiln. Which really kind of an absurd statement. Mike hilton he was the only guy that's ever been able to play that job before. Hopefully the steelers have been able to find that guy. We know they desperately have been looking. They signed. I believe six defensive backs in undrafted free agency so by all means they are desperately looking for that guy to take over that role. There's a ton of guys on the roster that are going to have a crack at it is just up to the steelers to fine the best guy for that job. The last thing. I want to see out of the corner back. Position is how this depth chart is going to kinda roll out here. Oh boy it's going to be one of those kind of interesting things to see how everything plays out with the starters first of law but right now it seems james peer might be the number one backup when it comes to the outside corners and then beyond that. It's a ton of question marks and it's one of the things. I'm going to bring up again when we get to the safeties but really all these defensive back spots while it seems like we know who the starter or the most likely starters going to be when it comes to backup if there's an injury huge question marks. We don't know who those guys are going to be. And of course the steelers have a ton of young guys in the building. Now that are going to compete for those jobs. So we're just going to have to sit back and watch how plays out. But the way this depp chart rounds out is going to mean a lot. There's no way every single one of the pittsburgh steelers starters are going to remain healthy so it's one of those things to look out for whether or not they to bring in another guy through free agency before we get We get to training camp even after training camp kind of remains to be seen. We know that teams cut and is of course what forty seven players get cut each by each and every team each and every year so there could be some decent secondary guys in the market that the steelers could chase at that point but right now they don't really have that kind of flashy name. Maybe james pierre is. He looked really good in in one football game. The sample size isn't quite there yet. But we need to figure out this step chart the lowest position group. I wanna talk to you. Guys today about are the steelers safeties. We know minkah. Fitzpatrick is an absolute beast. He's one of the best players on this team. He's one of the best young players in the nfl today. On all pro a stud. He changed his team the second they traded for them. What what value the steelers got just a single first round..

"Blown away. I tried to reach out to athlete since i started covering the steelers way back when just hope and a prayer no one ever response. Because they've got better things to do well right now. He doesn't have better things to do because he's unemployed. So i get anything else on your mind neck so actually did have a question for you regarding the secondary as well so i am a little worried about our cornerback. Dept and. That's where i'm more. So i mean i'm a little worried was tasty death death but i am honestly pretty comfortable with minka in and terrell admins. I do like that pairing. I am a little worried about cam. Sutton. i'm going to be honest. I feel like a lot of people are really pumping him. I like him. i think he's a good piece. I just worry that we're seeing the nfl kind of transition from more of a throwing basically were you need three strong cornerbacks and think cam sutton was a really strong third. Cornerback how he's gonna do at number two. And i guess i just wonder i don't know i've seen him play in the i feel like i've seen him get picked on often. This and so. I'm just kinda wondering where all this kind of hype is coming for him while the height comes from the contract and they chose him over mike hilton. I've said it before. I'll say it again. Like if they wanna dated. They wanted campsite and probably because they knew that steven nelson was going to be leaving because he was a cap cavity. So here's the better coverage cornerback of hilton and sudden leads sutton. That's obvious and i think it depends on. I'm going to hold judgment here on the situation because there is cause for concern there but there are a lot of question marks in a lot of moving pieces that we don't know yet. For instance is cam sutton gonna be. Nelson's replacement or is camp sutton just going to be a guy that is going to still flex inside and sub packages and they're gonna put someone else outside. If that's the case who they putting outside is going to be arthur millette if he picked up from the jets who has played cornerback and safety before. Is it someone. Like justin laying or james pierre. These are all questions that we don't know right now. We have no idea what's going to happen with this secondary situation. I hope and i keep my fingers crossed. The steelers do have a plan. But i just don't know if they actually do. Have that plan until babies waiting to see how it plays out as well. But i do like cam suddenly coverage ability. I think he's really good. That's where he where he excels. Everyone thought oh he's under. Fill mike helton spot. No he does not do well there. That's someone else. I do think that he is a player. That can be really really good. Piece of the puzzle for the steelers in the secondary. But that's just my take. But nick thank you for chiming in. I appreciated absolutely. If you wanna talk again let me know about the halfway point similar to take a quick break for listening level. Locker room stay tuned. I'm not going anywhere for listening on the audience..

"It's tough because there's not a lot of areas you could go. I'm gonna agree with bradley and the discussion tab he said cornerback cam sudden earned. That contract dry we can. We can stress that until the cows come home. They paid him. Instead of mike helton they gave him the contract. And i don't think it's because they felt they couldn't afford my kiln. Everyone thinks that i disagree. I think that they do they. Light san camp sutton. They knew they weren't going to have steven nelson. They love his versatility. And if he can pan out and really earned that contract it's gonna completely change the whole spectrum of that secondary especially the quarterback position but logan. What about you. What are your offense is in divas. Physician groups that are underrated. Twenty twenty one. I completely agree with you with offense on. I think the national media doesn't know what they're talking about when they're saying they need to the drought dolphins lawn especially in the first round. Because you have the three returning starters kevin dodson car if you consider dots in a starter. Last year he did start some games. He's got experienced to castro's there then Szucs court for played embassy entire seasons. Yes three. I think that offense align is a lot better than i would say. They're easily bug dolphins line in the national media talking like they're a taught five worse off until onto the league so i can put on that topic and defense. I thought about that. But i could corner. They have a lot of depth. It's good debt but their first thing corners are pretty solid and i have complete confidence at least in the past two seasons with their Decisions in plays at the corners in the playing a lot better than they have. Let's say the past ten years. So i breath the corner position. I agree logan thanks for chiming i appreciate it as always have a good one all right. Let's get back to the twitter mail bags you're on law firm you one-off s some time. I'd glad to talk to you. Have a couple questions still here from my writer dietary on twitter mail bag david says if rudolph time mason rudolph lane haskins have a great training camp slash. Preseason who would do the more comfortable being sent away via trade. I'll jobs a couple of years ago. To the jaguars he's hashtag rider diary. David's question i think with this situation dwayne. Haskins again is the wildcard. He's the player that no one knows much about everyone in the nfl. No one wanted it. I said that earlier in the show carolina passed up on him and he didn't get any other visits from any other team until he signed with pittsburgh. And so i feel like there's going to be more of a market if you're looking to trade a player for rudolph's then you were get for haskins however i don't think there's any way that they trade mason rudolph. They gave him that extension. He'll be back next year. They did it as an insurance policy. I don't think there's any way that either one of those players on the trading block if anything if haskins plays well. He tried to be the third quarterback on the depth chart. Barring injury and joshua does pride the out again. We'll find this out during the preseason. All right the last question on my twitter mail bag kevin and we had a bunch that we answered. By the way got zips talked about The vict- late banderas trade in potential trade. I should say i can't talk about that. Brian actually joined the show and talked about his question so we had a lot more response. I just didn't want to be What did want reiterate everything. So kevin ask can we get a quality starter at cornerback with the cap money. We have left so this is from days scofield. Who is he knows. He's forgotten more about the salary cap than i've ever done. And he has the steelers after kendra green signs rookie deal. Which i'm sure is going to happen. It's not this week next. He's last rookie to deal once. He signs his deal. The steelers will be give or take between seven and eight million dollars cap space and that sounds like a lot of money. The problem is is that they have to carry a good majority that into the season to help pay for injuries and things of that nature and then if they don't get rolled over the next year's cap so the suez don't want to they don't they can't actually say we're just gonna we're gonna just blow it all never. We're going all in ships in vegas. David have to create space out some way whether that's restructuring players like steph onto chris boswell. I don't think that's going to happen whether it's extending david. Decastro or joe haden building. That's going to happen either. I don't think that this year is going to make a move. They make a move on said this for weeks. I'm sticking to my guns. If they make a move it is going to be. They're going to get someone off the scrap heap. In what i mean but i think ross cockrell players that gets cut from team at the when they do the cut downs. They see it as as an upgrade at a position and they're going to pick that player up. That's exactly what i'm talking about in terms of day could make a move and let's also not forget the people that they did go out and signed a cornerback. It just wasn't a big name player. These aren't arthur millette. Who played both cornerback and safety for the new york jets benedict did a tremendous film room breakdown on arthur In what he brings to the defense. It's not perfect okay. It's it was a great article and is a great read and it's a good visual representation..
