"North where we're supposed to get a much more competitive game. Hopefully we'll get a more competitive game in rams Texans in the form of steelers, browns, the browns, a three and a half point favorite at home, total 42. You're reading that Baker Mayfield should play in this game. You know, no official word yet from Cleveland. But, you know, again, injuries on both sides definitely a factor, even if baker is able to go, you look at the Steelers, Chase claypool route the sperm and questionable on injury report. You'd expect them to go, but something to keep an eye on. Carlos Davis on IR for the Steelers. And then you'll look at the browns and the injury report there's like 15 guys who are questionable and a lot of them key contributors. Guys like Odell Beckham, Nick Chubb. It's not a pretty situation for the Cleveland Browns on the injury side, but they are still favored to win this game. I would lean the under in this contest more than I would do anything else. Cleveland's second league this year in yards per play allowed. I think they will do a good job against a quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger, who is not completely healthy. And I also just think again, this is a situation for Cleveland where they are kind of geared toward running the ball grinding out victories, even if they certainly have the capability of putting up points through the air. I don't think they're going to need to in this game. I think being at home I mean, this is the Super Bowl for the browns every year, right? Their fans, this is the game that they circle on the calendar every season. So you know you're going to get a great energy there in Cleveland from the fans. I think they're going to that's going to help slow down the Pittsburgh offense as well. But I think just statistically alone, you look at how well this defense has performed for Cleveland. Cleveland, by the way, gaining a yard to play more on offense than the Steelers as well. I think we're going to see a pretty poor showing from the Steelers offensively, which will allow the browns to kind of grind down the clock in the second half. I would think that the under is the way to go if you were to have a side in this game. By the way, Pittsburgh, four one and one to the under the season. So I right there, I think that kind of speaks to the type of team you're looking at in the Pittsburgh Steelers. I think that you have a game where it's gonna start slow. I mean, again, again, we don't know what baker may feel can bring us right away. Baker Mayfield, he could come out and kind of need to kind of regroup after missing a week last week against the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football. And there was still the faint possibility that we see case Keenum, which would be great for the younger if you manage to get it at the current number. But I think that would be the way to go in that ball game. Now back to the NFC, we will talk about the Philadelphia Eagles three and a half point favorites against Detroit Lions who, by the way, are winless on the season. Total 48 and a half. And this is a game where you look at the number and you say, boy, shouldn't the eagles be favored by a little bit more against the Lions team who everybody should probably be favored by a little more than this against. And I think a lot of it has to do with the way that the Lions played against the rams last week. They showed a lot of hard to empty the playbook. They showed we're not going to completely lay down. This season as O and whatever it is 17 now seems like a distinct possibility for this Detroit team. Some injuries to worry about offensively for the eagles here, miles Sanders, not necessarily a guaranteed to go in this game devonta Smith is also questionable for the eagles and Smith, I think maybe a bigger deal than Sanders Sanders probably more productive player more consistent player. But the eagles don't exactly give their running backs enough room to operate to where I think that's going to be the end of the world, but losing a key receiver in a road game, I think is pretty important. Ryan Kerrigan on the defensive line, the pass rush of the eagles also questionable for this game. Now you look on the other side and you have the lions with now a third offensive lineman going on injured reserve. I am, of course, talking about Logan stenberg. He joins Taylor decker and Frank ragnow on that offensive line. On IR and that is, I mean, just terrible luck for the Lions. First of all, but I mean, it's a problem in terms of protecting a quarterback and Jared Goff who certainly needs all the help he can get, not that he's going to be firing the ball downfield if he gets protection, but you give him even less time and it could be a pretty ugly situation for Detroit. The eagles allowing a yard per play less than the lion so far the season, but it's interesting. You look at the scoring defenses of these two teams at 24th and 25th in the league respectively. It's not as if there's a huge advantage there for Philadelphia, despite the big number of difference in their yards per play allowed. I think that this is a game where I would lean very slightly to be over. But I think out of the entire slate this week, this is the game that I would probably have the lowest amount of interest in wagering on the Lions. I mean, again, if you're going to bet the Detroit Lions, you have to know going in. Things could get really bad for you really fast. And then I mean, look this eagles team is nothing special whatsoever they are. They're tied for second place and they're tied for last place. This is the rare situation that the NFC east is in. Where you have three teams below the Dallas Cowboys tied for both second and last, all at the same time at two and 5. So again, not a game I want to put my eggs in the Jalen hurts basket on the road, but I'm also not trying to back the Detroit Lions, either I would lean slightly toward the over. Just because both of these teams do tend to give up a decent amount of points regardless of their per play numbers. But it is not a game that I am enthused about getting involved with. Another game that I think is kind of ugly from a betting perspective, but we will go over it nonetheless, the San Francisco forty-niners, three and a half point favorites on the road against the Chicago Bears total under 40 here, 39 and a half. And of course, last week, the niners losing that weird game in The Rain against the colts, there were a lot of turnovers, simply because dudes were having trouble holding on to the football..

He won't be used depending on the game plan. has nothing to do with him as a player coach. Tomlin said he also Used james is another example of this is that sometimes he'll be more involved or less involved in the game plan based on their week by week in their opponent also one thing where where he was Was asked about the sixty one yard touchdown and how make. If it's patrick said that it was totally on him coach. Tom said everyone was was culpable. On the sixty one yard touchdown including him. They need a better defensive call. They need to be more prepared. He says there's there's a lot of things that went into that play and that everybody needs to be better to keep those things from happening. He acknowledged that. Ben rothlisberger took too many hits And part of that he saying his getting behind the sticks making it obvious passing plays where they're having to get a further distance down the field which means they have to hold the ball longer Staying out of those situations where a team could just get back and go with their pass. Rush would be one thing that can help that He was asked a question about pat firm youth in his. How he's been getting more snaps than eric hebron He just acknowledged with firm ruth. You know he continues to grow and is doing a nice job already. And this'll be both short and long term his growth Will will continue to really help. His team was asked about the taunting penalties in the nfl. And there was you know one in the steelers game so far the number of had been across the league. He said he hasn't really paid attention to the rest of the league in those penalties. But he's basically saying players will adjust to it our players better adjust to it Because you can't be having that cost you An important spot of the game that the people understand what they what they can and can't do and we'll adjust accordingly He was asked a question about carlos davis because he was not mentioned at the beginning with injuries He said we'll see how he progresses too big chance for him to get some more playing time with With all alu on the Injury injured reserve list. Now and Brought up him and bugs. You got henry mondo the came off the practice squad and just various players the defensive line in there and the opportunities that they might see here specifically this week coach. Tomlin was not asked any questions about players on. I are because they're not eligible to return next week. Meaning those that were added right away like steph onto it like zach banner like anthony. Junior now was not the time to ask him those questions. Those will probably come next week. So was asked about. The communication between ben rothlisberger matt candidate so far this year two games and he says that that's been fine not a concern with them Was act was talk a little bit more about the groin. Injuries going on and the availability of those players. He says they are very player. Specific some players can come back. The injury itself is very specific. It might not be the same type of injury for one player to the next. He also acknowledged that with these players. Some players can play on less practice time than others i. I'm pretty sure the main person he's probably talking about there. Is someone like a joe. Aiden joe haden could possibly not practice all week and still be fine to play in the game on sunday. Tom did mention him. But i had a feeling. That's who he's he's talking about. was asked Two last questions he was asked about was about Jamir jones he says he's you know got thrust into more playing time. He said he's doing what young guys do You show a glimpse of what you can do and wait for your opportunity. So that's kind of what's going on with jones. He mentioned james pierre being in the same boat last year as an undrafted guy made the fifty three Things like that. So even though jones was actually the year before and didn't catch on with any teams last year that this was something that he did to just continue to try to work with his opportunity and last but not least coach. Tomlin was asked about If he had any conversation with trae turner and the incident that had him ejected from the last game. He said that There was there was no meeting of the two of them later. turner apologize to the team and how we let them down downwards him not being available. said coach. Tomlin said that he felt that that you know kinda wrapped up. Put a bow on that subject and it's ready to move on because of his You know he understands how these things work. He's a veteran. He knows the importance of being available during the game and not unavailable for those types of reasons so that wraps up coach tomlin's press conference I hope i had all the the major points therefore you hope it wasn't too many points candidate would leave anything out As as we see what the steelers are getting ready to do as they as they prepared to take on The bengals this week.

"Editor. Dave scofield and we're ready to go special teams set up. I talked a little bit about it in the first half. But i really wanted to look at some of the numbers from last week's game i but i'm going to look at not. Just this past week gonna look at the entire preseason so far for the steelers all three games and who has stood out the most on special teams. I'm just going to give you the numbers on wanna break down. I will tell you that. I am using pro football. Focus that has these snaps and everything else for these players and tackles and those kinds of stats. I mean they don't actually have a lot of stats. They that's just what they have so they also going to have their grades. And i'll give you. They're great it's up to you if you are okay with the pro. Football focus grades or not. I understand a lot of people were skeptical. I'm skeptical at times but it does sometimes make me think about. Did i see what i think i saw. You know i. I can't believe what i just saw. Sorry i couldn't help myself there so let's look first at the snap counts now. These are on special teams. This is kick return kick coverage does on kickoffs punt return punt coverage feel gold block which defending the field goals and field goal kicks. That's the six places. The six different special teams that players could get on the field. The player who has played the most special team snaps so far. This preseason is edge. Rusher jamir jones and he's really making a case to make this fifty three man roster based on special teams play he. He's been on five five kick returns. Snaps ten kick cupboard snaps. That's a big one kick coverage k. Six punt returns nine punt coverage eight field goal blocks. He hasn't been on the field goal team. Which doesn't surprise me because that's mainly a lot of guys are just. You're either snapping blocking holden or kickin. That's all you doing on the field goal team. So he's got the most snapped and he's only got one more special teams snap then. Seventh round draft pick safety. Traynor would yes three seven snaps kind of a similar breakdown. He's not on the field goal team He's got an a. you know. Eight kick returns snaps the ten kick coverage just like jones. Six punt returns like john's. He's only got four punt coverage but he's got he's apple. The field goal blocked him. He has nine nine snaps their. Okay i will tell you that. Jamir jones also is leading. The steelers in special teams tackles this this year because he has three so low in one assists was just attack on special teams. So but trae traynor would has a lot of snaps. Doesn't have any tackles can so. Let's just keep keep rolling to. I'm not going to go through a team by team or your specialty by special team with with everyone. I just want to do that for the guys at the top because the third most snaps unsurprisingly goes to buddy johnson fourth round draft. Pick inside linebacker and same kind of deal. He's not on the fuel go kick team. But he's kind of spread out pretty evenly with those with those other special teams. There's there's five total players that have had thirty special team snapshot more are said jamir jones with thirty eight. Norwood with thirty seven buddy. John's with thirty four then. It goes you list gilbert the third with thirty one and mark gilbert with thirty. I'm telling you. I think that's significant because a lot of people are like. Oh mark gilbert secure brown mark gilbert. You brown can. They both make the roster can make the roster. I'll be honest right now. I have gilbert ahead of brown. Because i think he's you saw why he might have been a very high draft pick before he suffered his injury while he was at duke. That cost him basically two years. Well it was the hip injury the first year then. He had the ankle injury the next year. So if he's back and find from injury he showing what he can do either way. I think these guys are definitely practice squad candidates if they don't end up crab somebody else. But if you're looking at those two comparatively mark gilbert has thirty special team snaps to. I gotta find him here. Secure brown has eighteen so he has almost twice as many gilbert does so he's been playing more special teams then we have players like anthony johnson. The wide receiver. He's got twenty five special team snaps. Henry mondo getting a lot of special team snaps. Twenty four but eleven to them almost half of them or on our on the field goal kick field goal slats extra point kicking. Which doesn't surprise you. You know a lot of times. We'll get defensive lineman on that team as well. I know like kim hayward on the team at times you know quite a lot Then the next most naps also tied with twenty four. So it wasn't the next most is a is six draft. Quincy he rochet. Then you get into players with twenty two snaps. Carlos davis and kevin reiter than you get down to anthony mcfarland with twenty. And he's got it's interesting because he's got more kick coverage snaps than anyone. But i'm not a hundred percent sure that that's all exactly right because there was some issues because was it wasn't mcfarland was at donovan steiner. You know at times. But honestly i steiner has a lot as well so i've maybe maybe they did get it right so with that because it's interesting mcfarland has the most kicked covered snaps of anyone with eleven. Everyone else only asked him so really when you break it down if you look at some other key. Special teams players and their total snaps. Played a balaj. Cannibalized has nineteen. That's only in two games. Because he because he didn't play in the second game so that's that ones of note because he's got the most of anyone that only played two games. So if you look at that on average you know we can rounded down to eighteen rather than nineteen and say that he would have played another nine. And then there you go. He sitting there at twenty seven twenty eight snaps. So he'd be he'd be sitting there more towards the top already mentioned secure brown with his eight eighteen. Zach gentry mouth. Killebrew cassius marsh. All seventeen special teams snaps. Then you get into other players like presley arvin s. Sixteen he's really. He only has five punch. But he's got eleven holtz. That's the difference right there right now so then you get into some other players. It's really spread out from on with a lot of them with sixteen fifteen fourteen snaps so and then even get some of the offensive linemen because of so much of the of the field goal team so those are the main ones that are standing out. There's a few of them that i'm surprised. See more on on special teams you know like for example Cody white the wide receiver. He has five special team snaps. Still trying to find the. There's matthew sex and he has seven special teams snaps. You've got the two punt returns and you know were actually returned the ball but he's only got seven special teams naps. And he's another guy that maybe offer a ray recap ray ray mcleod for the fifth wide receiver spot while he doesn't have a reception in the in the preseason so that makes it a little bit more difficult as he seems like you would be merely a return specialist. So that's where you're coming from a snaps standpoint now. Let's look at how these players well before we go to how they graded. Let's look at the tackles. Let's see who has the most tackles. Now i these are solo tackles and i'll see if i can throw in the assist whenever i can There's only three players that have more than one solo tackle on special teams there. Jamir jones with three. Anthony mcfarland with two and calvin bondage with two. Then you get into players. That had that had one but also had an assist like shaquille brown yuji. Three marcus allen. Then you get into some guys it just had one solo. Tackle like buddy johnson Henry mondo kaelin balaj justin lane mark gilbert and arthur. Let those are. The special teams tackles that is also something to look at. Let's also look at real quick. How many players have have notched a missed tackle. According to pro.

"He's a heck of a blocker. That's he's really gonna be that role. And here's the thing. It's it's a weird thing and canada's offense. It's not so much there's a number one tight end and number two tight end and another three tight. There's your there's like spots inline tight end spot and there's more of your h. Back moving around spot but inside of you have kind of this blocking role will just show up in the game. It's not like they only show up when the starter needs a break or like you know third period or they're only in for second tight end or if someone's injured no he'll he'll commit and they and we saw that where zach gentry was on the field with three wide receivers a running back ben rothlisberger and he was the tight end. You got harris. Zach gentry and ben roethlisberger and it's i was just stunned to see that but that's that's kind of a candidate thing So for me. If you wanna go overall situation. I think zack gentry. Has it largely wrapped up unless we see kevin raider out there. I in which case you can say. Okay maybe they were giving these guys shots Different times and they're gonna balance it. 'cause tomlin we'll do that but seen jack gentry out there with the first string makes me think he he's got this locked up. I yeah you know what. Kevin rader came on the scene last year. I believe the colts game when he was knocking heads on a kickoff team and making some block so i i still think he's a shot. It'll be interesting. Maybe maybe settle with the size but You don't really know We'll find out what the tighter one then a lot of people may think in the it'll be interesting. See how that shakes out but the last kind of offensive position were. I'd say there really is a Position battle is kim. Greens kind of wrapped up that center spot. The fifth wide receiver position is still up in the air. It right now. It really feels like it's ray ray macleod or one of like six dudes to me. I think matthew sexton might actually be leading the way and really this game kind of determines who's gonna win that spot. Because i wouldn't be surprised that no matter which way it kind of winds up. But who do you think's going to be the fifth receiver and do they have to be kick returner. I if if that's what they kind of go with at that's what was the way the roster is bill right now the punt returner. There's other return on the roster. The fifth wide receiver gotta be the punt returner. So i think that really limited kinda down to sexton and and ray mcleod which. He's actually kind of sad. Because i've liked some of the other guys. Anthony johnson has made plays on special teams and he's shown a bit but he hasn't gotten much time He didn't get much time. Then the other guys who are looking pretty good. But i think it's basically sexton or mcleod. Yeah that's kind of the way that I'm thinking it shakes down to sexton's been more dynamic returner this year. so it'll be. It'll be of interesting to see where that goes but Flipping things over the defenses out of the football. The one spot. We've talked a lot about. We talked about it before the draft. Then we talked about it a ton after the draft because they drafted another guy at the spot but the interior defensive line. My goodness is that room filled to the gills. Who is getting the axe. Because we know there's a ton of dudes there and at least one of them is gonna trump they they just cannot physically keep them like maybe they squeeze someone on the practice roster but it just does not seem likely yeah. Here's the interesting thing to me is. Do they keep seven. We keep six or do they keep seven on. The defensive line is going to be a thing to watch because if they only keep six they sometimes only keep six right. Now you've got the first four are hayward to it. A lulu warmly behind that consistently. We've seen henry mondo When when when the starters are out it's it's warmly and mondo every time and point. Carlos davis is allowed or milk in a rotating in early in a game. They haven't done as well. So i think raimondo is kind of locked into your number five spot. He also plays a lot of special teams. He has a lot of value there. That's big so. I think mando is really locked into the number five spot and at that point. You've got carlos davis isaiah bugs and I is allowed her milk. Sitting there fighting for the number one spot maybe to I think isaiah bugs from some of the comedy side. I think he's the most likely cut there but he's also one of the few guys they've been playing at nose tackle. They've actually put him in at nose tackle if before carlos davis so i'm There's there's a lot of question marks there there's a there's a really interesting battle and that is one That i think is key in this game is who's playing the best of carlos davis isaiah louder milkin isaiah bugs and two of them play well enough to convince the steelers to keep seven defensive lineman i think they have to carry seven again just with the amount of talent they got. Carl davis also gonna keep in mind. He's running down a kickoff in that Role now he's the special teams defensive lineman I've been saying it along that isaiah bugs is the one that's going to get the snips and i'm going gonna stick with. I'm going to let it roll at this point. That's that's my guess. Keeping seven defensive lineman and getting rid of bug seems to make the most sense because it allows you to keep all your young talent all your main guys for for right now Isaiah bugs isn't going to be a in the future like that. That ship is sale. Carla davis is. They allowed him of both of those guys. Still have the opportunity to really grow into something And i think everyone does past isaiah bug. So i agree i think isaiah bugs going and see keeping seven make the most sense and loud day invested way too much to get rid of at this point. He's essentially a fourth-round extra them and he's been improving and he's look good in practice. There's no way louder milk's going anywhere either. In my opinion so it'll be he'll be focusing on that one shakes down of course bugs and davis. Who were the people Fist-fighting i believe on the ravens sideline Last year now. They're quite literally fighting for their pittsburgh. Steelers career so we'll see we'll see how that one ends up and who's he's taking the job and who's Who's receiving it so we'll be it'll be funny to see that one kind of winds up. I'm sure there'll be a member to kind of revolving around that. That punch the next position. That i wanna get into. I think he's probably best off to kind. Can lump them together. And that's both linebacker swats. Because the steelers traditionally carry nine linebackers total inside and outside one year could be five outside. Linebackers could be five on the inside. Who are going to be that five because currently the could quite easily carry ten total heck even eleven at both positions combined so How how do you see this shaking out..

"I t b d. Yeah okay all right to be determined like to see a little bit more of shelbert with bush yes Once you have once you know. I'm one hundred percent on board with that. Then that makes d'alene look like very good depth as well as potentially buddy johnson. Well here's what's crazy. From the game sunday night the only played four inside linebackers. He play devon bush. Joe schubert and then they played by. Can i not roberts lane and marcus allen. Yeah i know. I did not play you g three and they did not play buddy johnson. So i'm sorry buddy. Johnson's four draft pick and has done anything wrong. I don't he he. I don't think he's going to miss the cut of the fifty three if you know what i mean. Yes but it's funny. I you've marcus allen. The way they're using him as a linebacker when he was really a safety everything else. I don't know that if he doesn't make the fifty three that he's not a guy that you couldn't just get to the practice squad. 'cause i don't know if anyone wants to utilize in the way the steelers are using it. So it's going to be real. I'm not sure what they're doing there. That's why i. That's why i was pretty good. Yeah because i don't know really don't. I'm not i'm not really concerned but again i'm not super concerned about that position. It's going to be interesting to see how it plays out exactly exactly so you know the steelers were were looking to make moves. And i mean i thought devon bush looked much more comfortable in his second game yup just because you know the first one was the first one back with with the knee. So you kind of expect that last but not least defensive line works. Yeah i mean he was with steph onto it out. I mean i would like to back. But you're you're you're showing some stuff. They're the biggest concern they have to figure out is this who sticking around not yeah and carlos davis had a nice game on quietly had a nice game on saturday he had he was. He was the third highest. Pf score for the steelers defense for the game. Only behind highsmith and ingram. It came it was then. Carlos davis so i think he looked much better but believe it or not. I bet. Isaiah buds was fifth. He was up there too. So i think the biggest thing you have to worry about is figuring out who they're gonna keep but that's a good problem to have so with act. We're gonna call the only big concerns. We really have on defense. And it's not even a big concern is how are they figuring it all out of corner because i thought brooks did great in the hall of fame game. And then now he's gone. It's like they spent all this time to figure out something and then they have to. It's like it didn't happen. That's it's a shame it really is all right. We're gonna come back part two going to look at the offense which there's plenty to talk about the offense and and then we'll look forward ahead to this friday's games you we think is going to go on there. What we'd like to see their and of course and of course we'll do our question at the end so if you're with us on the audio side go ahead and go over partout. If you're here with this on youtube or facebook give us a few seconds. We'll be right back..

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

"Second we had no. Turnovers solid tackling. and then. Next win the line of scrimmage so here the steelers gonna play the dallas cowboys and again. I don't care if it's their second. Third fourth fifth. Who knows how many you know spots on the depth chart they have positions. I don't care when it comes to the line of scrimmage playing in trenches defensive line offensive line. I want to see the steelers winning that battle. It shows great depth that they can do it in the second half it shows a willingness to do the dirty work this dealers are going to have to change their ano- in twenty twenty one both on defends in stopping the ron beam more consistent there in on offense running the football well to do either of those. You have to be disciplined enough and you have to dominate. And win the line of scrimmage so for me. That's a big one i wanna see again. I don't care if it's carlos davis isaiah bugs isaiah louder milk Chris warmly henry. Mondo i don't care who it is. Win the line of scrimmage and just on the other side. i don't care if it's rashad coward. I don't care if it's bj finney jc half an hour. It doesn't matter. Dan moore junior. When the line of scrimmage that's a big one for me okay. I wanna see some splash. Plays say that. I don't care about the defense getting takeaways and i. I don't care if i'm not going to throw up a red flag and say oh my gosh. Everyone should be on. You know on high alert because the pittsburgh steelers. The pittsburgh steelers didn't get turnovers. I'm not going to say that. However i do want to see some splash plays or as tomlin calls it popcorn and that goes on both sides of the football i want to see the splash. Plays on offense and defense so maybe it is a pick six or maybe it's just an interception in the red zone on offense. Maybe it's a free play. They connect deep. Maybe take catch and run. Like a deontay johnson catches it makes him and miss and he's off to the races. I wanna see the splash plays and that's a trend that we've seen throughout training camp. It just feels like this offense is going to hate to say this. Ad label them this. It kind of feels like it's going to be boom or bust. It's going to be a big play or maybe just a mediocre play nonetheless. I wanna see those big plays. I wanna see. This book. splash plays and popcorn as mike. Tomlin calls it the last one the fifth and final. I just want to see the the steelers. Avoid the injury bug. They already had a player adding his damarcus acey who came out and said he tours. Acl in practice. You just hate to see any player care. What team they're on. I don't care if they're on the ravens bengals doesn't matter you just hate to see a player luke. Bb lost for the season before the season even starts. I mean yes act. Banners injury was tough and so was devon bush's because it happened early in the season but at least they got season zach. Banner played almost as four game before he lost. He was lost with the year. But still you just don't wanna see especially in a game like this especially in a meaningless. Fourth preseason game you know mike tomlin said in his press conference on tuesday you know we view it as a bonus we view this games a bonus. We view it as an opportunity to get some young players Quality repetitions to get their their feet wet to get them prepared to play. Nfl football to get him experience and then ultimately to give them some a chance to get some tape out there so with all that said you would just hate to see the injury about crib. This early in the preseason and so that's my fifth one so it was a to recap my five realistic expectations for the pittsburgh steelers in steelers versus cowboys on thursday night hall of fame. Game primetime television number one. No turnovers keep it clean offense. Keep it clean no interceptions. Don't put the ball on the turf. Protect the rock number. One number two solid tackling defense. I want you to wrap up. I want you to be solid. You're not afraid of contact your not afraid of anyone getting their dirty work number three. When the line of scrimmage offense and defensive line dominate the point of attack be the person that is the aggressor in prove that this year's going to be different splash plays the fourth splash. Plays show me some popcorn as mike tomlin would say. I want to see some excitement. I wanna see some big plays this dealers lack that at times in twenty twenty not necessarily defense especially on offense. I want to see that change. I don't care who's a quarterback. And then lastly avoid the injury bug no one wants to see injuries in the preseason especially in this first out of four all right folks. I'm going to take a quick break when we come back. After this break. I'm gonna dive into the rider die. Crew mailbag from twitter. Answer all your questions will be support for. This episode comes.

"May when they brought them in after that that rookie camp and so i read up so much about this guy and there were people that were saying. Duck who slam there are still people saying duck. Who know so. I'm not. I'm not now. Some of you did no too but we just we just have to know. We have to know who these guys are because a lot of the times. We're looking for somebody to talk about right. And we watched the draft one through seven because one. We're covering it like crazy but we need to know who these players are and then it gets the point. Where like everybody out here. That are your diehards. That are bleeding. The black and gold want to know who these guys are. Snowman says this. I do too bad because some guys might make the team now. I will say this. And i'm going to be perfectly honest with you. The guy that shannon's in love with james pierre. I did not know who he was. When i hardly. I heard his name. But i hardly knew he was because we did have a preseason last year right so that's one of the guys you're like. Whoa he made this guy made the fifty three and they're they're not going and then i'm reading that they can't they just cannot risk putting him on the practice squad and that shows that they see something that we don't know but there's people that had no clue james. Peer was the entire season until they started seeing. I remember special teams. Some one of my buddies was in. Who's forty two. That's james pierre but i. I didn't know who he was thing. Go with carlos davis. Do you know what i mean. They was talking about a defensive lineman that they were scared the put on the practice squad because he went clear. Waivers and thinking you know. I was thinking of a lot of people but i definitely wasn't thinking davis because we didn't have any preseason. We have no way of knowing that you never never. And it's like you said brian and shannon. You know there's so many of these guys they're gonna they're gonna wanna see because they're going to have to depend on them. Like bugs in davis and louder especially davis louder. They didn't have a preseason lash earth. Davis didn't have a preseason last year but but we didn't see him last year in preseason like you know how are they going to do you. Know if they're if they're factored into the rotation on the line with With hayward intuit and and a lulu so one of those guys is probably going to factor and heavily in that rotation so how. How are they going to respond or they're going to Be are they going to. You know what. I'm trying to say are are they going to dominate the pre. The guys that are third and fourth stringers in preseason. That's what i. That's what i'm hoping to see. You hope so. Yeah so gentlemen. Let's do this. Let's go ahead and take a break and we will be back right after this with the guys we need to see shine and the guys that are already shining.

"Tackle nose tackle and defensive end and they didn't overlap anybody in either group. So defensive tackle is came hayward nose. Tackle was tyson aloe aloe and defensive and steph onto it so if you kind of think about it whether you call steph onto a defensive and tackle. That's just the way they. The steelers are listing based on what. They're kind of asking those guys to do. So if you look at just the defensive tackle group i it goes cam hayward henry mondo isaiah louder. Milk at nose tackle. It goes tyson alalu isaiah bugs. Carlos davis tj carter. So very interesting that right now. They have isaiah. Bugs ahead of carlos davis even though last year carlos davis was getting. The helmet had a at the end of the season. As and for defensive. And it's steph onto it chris warmly. Calvin taylor abdulah anderson. So that's what those are. Which is interesting. Because taylor was on the practice squad. Last year anderson has played in the nfl. But they have him behind taylor right now but that's between third and fourth. I would read too much into that. Now let's look at the outside linebackers. The two starters are on the left side. Tj watt on the right side. Alex highsmith behind. T. j. watt. it goes cassius. Marsh quincy rochet jomar watson behind out highsmith. It goes melvin ingram third and jamir jones so in other words if you kind of look at it as if you were snaking through in your of putting in order if you kind of think of it that way that they the number one got tj. What he's he's he's number one on the left then. The second next guy was alex smith. He was number one on the right. The third best guy was ingram. He was second on the right. The fourth best the fourth next guy was marsh. He was second on the left. The fifth next guy be rochet. He's third on the left. It's kind of how they snaked through a little bit if you really look at it. I'm trying to paint the picture as much as i can't do. Podcast for him now. It's look at the inside linebackers to no one's surprise it's devon bush in the left roberts blame on the right. The backups are that second players listed is ulysses gilbert. The third is behind. Devin bush at marcus allen behind roberts spelane. They were the number two guys. Then buddy johnson is the third guy behind bush and gilbert with tegray scales as the third and jarvis miller as the fourth behind robbers plane and marcus allen. So that's the linebackers moving on to. Let's go to the. Let's go to the safeties next and then we'll go out to the corners no surprise at safeties. It's mick fitzpatrick is the free safety. Tro edmonds at the strong safety. What's really interesting is then where it goes from there. Trae norwood is the next guy behind making fitzpatrick at free safety followed by donovan steiner. At.

"He did have some opportunities. There were times where he literally tripped over his own two feet. I feel like after having that year under his belt. He'll have a preseason he'll have offseason workouts and chase claypool said thursday. That was a big for him. He didn't have this last season because everything was shut down because of covid adding anthony. Mcfarland is definitely going to be someone to keep an eye out. I think he's gonna step it up as young boy. Twenty four seven the live chat. That's my let's go to the defensive side. Who do you have on defense brian. So let's go on defense and take a look at a guy that should not be considered a sleeper especially when you're a first round draft pick let's bring up terrell admins one more time and why am i considering him a sleeper because obviously the pittsburgh steelers do not consider him to be way ahead in their future when they're looking ahead to their own black and gold crystal ball. They're not feeling that he is the guy that they are going to rely on because they did not tender him a fifth year option. If they do that if they give him a fifth year option then you know they have him in their mix but right now it's almost one of those situations where they're saying all right terrell. You're not gone from the team but you're you have to make the team all over again and that's basically the season the terrell edmonds is going to have to have. He is going to have to make this team or make another team because of how he's going to play in this upcoming season now he's definitely if the steelers go he's gonna sign with arizona cardinals or someone like that just like a jarvis. Jones did somebody's going to give an ex first. Rounder another chance. I think terrell edwards has plenty of talent that he can be that perfect complement for makeup fitzpatrick. So they don't feel enough to go ahead and give him that extra year at the price that they were going to have to do it so he's really to step up. I'm thinking that this guy has the intestinal fortitude and the heart to do it and he's going to do everything he can to cement himself as a pittsburgh steeler in. It's gotta be this year. There's no they're todd. There's a lot on the line for edmonds. His best ability is his availability. he's always available. He only missed. Maybe one or two games in his entire tenure. With the steelers as you can't ask for much more outside of just being making get your hands on the football of ideas that everyone would one gallon. Go with a player that no one is talking about. Not that i've heard of In this player. I correct me if i'm wrong brian. I don't even think. He made the team outright last season and they brought him back on the practice squad elevated. That's antoine books junior. I think that antoine brooks junior. When you think about what the steelers do in sub packages and you think about like what. Mike hilton did well. In terms of playing the ron. And playing the line of scrimmage. I could definitely see them having a role for him in twenty twenty one. It might not be your typical role. But he's he's known for being a box safety a guy that can come down hill. Play that run Play in the backfield. I think that the steelers. We might all be surprised when he gets it entire year under his belt. When you get the Preseason this year. Keep an eye on anton brooks junior. I think that he could actually make make the team be a really big contributor on special teams but also have a role in the defense. You want to go back to offense now or do you want to go to stay on events. Let's go ahead and stay on defense in i am going to bring up chicago. Brown undrafted free agent. I was looking through cleaning off my desk today. And i was looking through all the notes that i made back in march on. Who the top quarterbacks were. And i had on. Cbs had chicago brown around eleven or twelve. As far as a cornerback he was expected to be a fourth or fifth rounder. In somehow he slipped out of the draft and that was quite peculiar. I really like which chicago brown brings to this team. I think he is better than justin lane. Oh i'm sorry. Did i say that wrong lusting. Okay thank you austin gene. Okay but i think shakoor brown as an undrafted free agent. One of those guys is making it. I'm telling you there's there's three defensive backs and it's it's a brown mark. Gilbert is another one and lamont weighed those are three one of those guys is definitely gonna make it. I wouldn't be surprised if two of those guys make it. I think one of the quarters though get definitely gets in and i think it's jakob brown and i think he's going to be one of those guys that gives the gets an opportunity to shine especially with the lack of depth at corner. Yeah that's i don't know much about chicago brown going to be completely honest. I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of people are talking about handed. A lot of people have high hopes. i'm going to go a different direction staying on defensive. That's what you wanna do. I'm gonna go with someone. You're very familiar with your own blood that your son. Carlos davis This stems from a scene. I believe it was in the baltimore game at home where i could be wrong. I think i am wrong. Might have been at. Cleveland might have been the last game of the season off. Think about that. So the cbs cameras are going along. The steelers sideline and all of a sudden you see isaiah bugs getting into a shoving match with somebody and that. Someone was carla davis in chris. Warmly had to separate the two. And you know why isaiah bugs getting upset. Because he wasn't playing as much. Carlos davis was playing more. Carla davis was the one that had bugs inactive at the end of the season. I think that this guy who no one when they took him in the seventh round out of nebraska. No-one people are telling me it was the ballgame sided okay. I wasn't going crazy. No one thought that this guy was even gonna make the team let alone was going to make the team and actually contribute. He actually showed some serious promise last year in like i've said for all those players. All three of the players have said sleeper so far have been from the twenty twenty draft class last three picks. I feel like when they get a full off season and preseason. We're going to see them get even better. I'm gonna go with carlos davis so we do have some more. We have three more. Actually each of us have three more. We're gonna talk about those after the brakes if you're listening on the audience side head over to part to if you're watching live on facebook or on youtube stay tuned. Goanywhere was going anywhere. We'll be back after this break..

"There. Delano Robinson leads the ponies on the defensive side of the ball. Zach Smith doing a nice job for Tulsa. You know they and they got the big win early. Against UCF. So you just wonder, you know is how good is this theme Prince and Wilkerson pretty good running backs and Stokes and Johnson. Pretty good receivers. The line is flip flop Now Tulsa was favored, and now it's circus sports, Though it's a picked him. I do see some S m u minus one total 64. Gonna be on the on the road team in this one. I am too. I agree with the move here on that's in you. And that money is she showed today. I mean, you could have found them almost all weekend. 2.5 Point underdogs. I just think I believe in karma, Katie. And talks of lasting that they played some of the worst officiating and recent college football history against these Carolina. They they're extremely fortunate to win that one. I think karma gets him in the end. That's in you. Other team played a lot more they haven't had. You know the practice flow disrupted with marble game cancelations like salsa. I like the police. All right, then we've got South Carolina told Mrs up to 12.5 now. Wow. 70 old this no doubt they can move the ball that can score points. They put a bunch up on Alabama. Other teams as well, Um, at coral leading the way there you encounter in the backfield. Pretty good. Elijah. More excellent receiver. Good tight end in your boa. Yes. 54 21 roll Vandy losses the Florida Bama, Auburn and at Arkansas, So you know, not bad, but they're scoring on all these teams. Colin Hill and company have stagnated. I'm wondering. Ryan Alinsky did get in four of six. For 34 yards and wondering when he gets in there full time. You know, I'd like to see him get get some more action, The team seemed to move better last year. Offensively, she Smith, really The only offensive weapon outside of Harris out of the backfield are in his Jones good, solid linebacker but wouldn't embarrassing game at home, 48 3 to a and M just never never in it. Now they're going to catch 12.5. Those 70. The total said too many points to give the Gamecocks in a game that must champ knows he's got to win because I don't think they can stop Lane Kiffin's wide open offense. Yeah, only they can I agree with the move here, But it's just the plane right now, after it's already moved. I mean, I got told miss on Sunday at six, So I'm happy to that, but but it's just it is moved way too much in the last 48 hours, so It is at the current 12.5 on passed, but you still wouldn't buy back right? I'm not buying that. No, I knew. No, no, no, no. Because what? It's all with 70. All that takes is I mean, you can have a nice middle opportunity and almost gets late score and then your son, right? No, I'm just gonna take my pretty flat bent on that one. Got very right. You got the good, really good number. South. Alabama, you Lafayette. Raging Cajuns minus 16 53. It's circus sports. Does Trotter leading the Jags? They come off the 23 6. Tough, hard phone. Lost a castle. Coastal Carolina played real well defensively didn't do much on offense. Carlos Davis out of the backfield, you know, did what he could have had. 73 yards plus a 10 yard reception. Waning Tolbert 169 between him receiving the ball. Riley call it 15 tackles for the Jags. You will Lafayette Levi Louis leads the way his team is okay. Got a good combination with Mitchell and ragas in the backfield. How 165 yards last week. There's six in one overall foreign one in the sun Belt. Your take on this one. You Lafayette, minus 16 53. I think that's too many points to give South Alabama More agreement. Katie I Mean, South Alabama. Just think that, don't you? I'll get too much love in the marketplace. Anderson's they beat Iowa stays right in the opener there, one of five against the spread. I mean, I'm not seeing it. I don't know why they keep getting back each and every week, so I thought that'll fade him. I agree. And hey, look, here's the thing. You're coastal Carolina. Coming off the 52. Nothing routing at Georgia State, they go home. I mean, they get a push on that 17 point number, which really never moved last week against South Alabama, and they do it with a late field goal. South Alabama is covering that close range or just a competitive game last week. Their personality. South Alabama Too many points. I agree. Southern miss at Western Kentucky, Western Kentucky minded seeing a half of circus sports 46 the total boy P. Graham, the Maryland transfer will do what he can do with gauge Walker in the backfield. Intensely decent receiver Devon Ki 65 tackles from safety position already. That's the bad thing. He leads the team in tackles. But when your safety legion tackles, you know you're I've seen a lot of guys get into your secondary. That shouldn't be there. Consistently. Jack Abraham, questionable Still for Southern Miss. We'll see how that goes. Did he quit? Okay. Yeah, the last night saying I wasn't sure because I heard there was dissension in the troops over there in Hattiesburg. But man Wow, because they went to a new coach to at the beginning of the year and well, now it's a western Kentucky for 8.5 46. I was in Kentucky just doesn't score enough for me to lay 8.5. You know, I mean, I I guess against the backup quarterback. That's the only way I look. Yeah, I have been tough because that man, he got down the 4.5 on like Wednesday and boom. A, you know, obviously watched from talking, taking nothing but money. I just think something missing or broken program right now. I mean, you're on the third string head coach. Because the interim quit as well, and they're down a third string quarterback as well. So lean watching Kentucky, but I'm liking Katy a conflict specially when you could have foreign after early in the week. Let me throw this out there to Brett Farve, new head coach, Southern Miss alma mater. Hey, lives right there. What the heck? He coached high school. No, no, I've never seen like coaching material to me was old man was his coach in high school. Come on, man. It's there. It's in the blood. He's just had too much money. But maybe now.
