"It's smart to do an extension now, or perhaps wait, the pros of doing it now is you get something done when the quarterback market could explode next year when guys like Joe burrow and Justin Herbert are amongst the players eligible for an extension, so chef has there been any talks between the Broncos and Russell Wilson about an extension because he's currently only under contract for two more years. We'll feel that I think when the Denver Broncos make this deal, they do so knowing that at some point in time sooner rather than later they'll probably have to extend Russell Wilson. Now there's a change in ownership there in Denver where they're waiting for the Walmart family to be approved here and obviously to move forward there. But if you look at Russell Wilson's contract right now, it's already out of date. He's got two years and $41 million left on that contract to make $19 million this year. And so Denver knows it has a big bargain. It knows that it invested an awful lot and Russell Wilson and we talked earlier in the show about a potential timeline via George kittle for deebo Samuel. And I would think that it would be something similar with Russell Wilson here. Some point before the start of the season, it wouldn't be a surprise if these two sides were able to come together to figure out an extension, but I would think that that would be something that both sides would want to make happen. And as we know, the price tag for quarterbacks could creep up to north of $50 million per year as soon as next off season, maybe even this off season. I realized if you can have special outcomes that you got to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Man, I had an opportunity to get a quality dude that is a more than capable coach. One of my sayings I got a lot of sentence is dope sick dope seek comfort. You better be willing to do unique things in order to expect unique results, like McDonald's, right? You know what the number one is. The number one is the number one, and that's what I want Pittsburgh to the football to be. When you watch somebody do something at a certain level for so long, it messes up your perceptions of what's regular and what's not. I don't run away from coaching. I run two coaches. Yo, would it be great? I need to be with what this 2022 team needs me to be. The standard is the standard. Gosh, such a good interview. RC, what was your takeaway from sitting down with coach Tomlin? One, that's who I've always known him to be. The thing I was happiest about is that the world got kind of an opportunity to know a little bit about how smart he is, how much he understands leadership, how much he understands people. My biggest takeaway was that he's actually excited about 2022. And listen, not every team is built to win a championship. And when you lose someone like Ben Roethlisberger, you would think some fear creeps up in your mind that you're doing it for the first time without your future Hall of Fame quarterback, but the excitement in his eyes and in his voice when he said, you know what? This is a new team. And I have to be whatever I have to be for this team to win. And running into the coaching that it's going to take for the 2022 Pittsburgh Steelers to be successful, that made me excited for this team. Whereas I was like, oh, it's going to be different without being, where would they find offense? How would they be good? Where is the leadership? I see now. He feels the leadership is in that locker room, and he's ready to coach these men to be different this year. The RC, I'm sitting here thinking when I'm watching the interview, obviously phenomenal head coach, record speaks for itself. Super Bowl winner. I'm sitting here thinking to myself, this guy could be like the commissioner of the NFL one day with the way that he just has this presence about him that is simply it's magnetic. And he is a leader that much is for sure. Mike Tomlin also shared some insights on second year running back najee Harris in the integral role of leadership that he can play for this franchise going forward. Let's take a listen on this one. That dude, the bell cow. He gonna have to be a bell cow for us. If this train going anywhere in 2022, he could be a major component of it in his capable. I ain't even talking about it from a talent standpoint. We know that. I'm talking about he's capable from an intangible standpoint. Bringing the best out in his teammates, wearing a responsibility that comes with leading. He just young. And so it's been a fun project. So RC, how much does the passing of the leadership torch to naji mean in your mind? That means it's on. It means a ton forward to be said publicly in that way. He's not only talking to us and speaking to the pivot. He's speaking to the world. He's speaking to the Pittsburgh Steelers that he's anointing this guy because he's capable because he has the stuff that it takes to lead to put the team first to put teammates first. I mean, you can go back to his draft day and having his draft party at a homeless shelter because he was once homeless himself. This is a guy who gets it. We saw the talent on the field. Last year, this year we'll get an opportunity to see how his leadership affects the locker room and affects the team. Niko, he was great last year in the conversation for offensive rookie of the year. But how important is nausea to the success of this dealer's offense, which again, first time starting a new quarterback in seemingly forever? Yeah, he's going to be a huge piece. And when you have a running back that's that physical that can really carry the load of the team and especially with a young quarterback, we don't know who the starting quarterback is going to be week one. So him being able to come in, be consistent, be that leader. You can be a young leader. You can be a second year guy and be a captain, a leader of men just by going out there, day in and day out and consistently doing things the right way. He's the guy that can do that. So again, I think he's going to have a huge year, and he's going to have to for this dealer team to go where they want to go. Listen, Nico is exactly right. When you look at when the Pittsburgh Steelers are their best, they lead with their run in and they can push the football down the field. Now you're going to have a quarterback that's mobile. You're going to have a team that can do some different things offensively, but they're going to have to stop the run D on defense and run the football offensively. And that starts with naji Harris. I think the guy is a star. He's going to be a bill call for years to come there, but it's going to be extremely vital, especially early that naji shows that he can carry this team on his back, which would allow Mitchell trubisky or Kenny Pickett to make the plays in critical football moments, not necessarily have to go out and win games offensively as they come along and get adjusted to be in the Pittsburgh Steelers new starting quarterback. You know, RC, the fact that it was a second year player that Mike Tomlin was semi anointing as the next leader to me was notable. But I thought about it a little bit deeper. This is also a player who plays running back. We have gotten to this point in the NFL where we just say turning and Burnham, right? Running back one for a year, two or three, and then we move on to the next. Draft someone who's younger and cheaper with less tread on the tires. What do you think it says about nausea is a human that Mike Tomlin is anointing a guy who again at the most fungible position in the sport right now is becoming the leader of this offense. Yeah, well, first of all, you got to think about naji Harris coming out of high school was the number one player or number one running back in the country and having to wait his turn at Alabama. This wasn't a guy that was thrust into stardom as soon as he walked on the field or got to the school and he didn't transfer. He didn't look to go somewhere else. He waited his turn and then he had his opportunity to shine. A guy who comes on a team the next year with Big Ben Roethlisberger and ingratiates himself so much in that locker room as a team player, but also as a guy that understood and had the stuff to relate to not only the veterans, but the young guy and for coach Tomlin to recognize that means it was on a thousand each and every day with his personality with his work with his morals and with his football character. That's what's mostly important to me to this team and why he was anointed as the next leader of this offense. Only I got to say is, I can't stand you, RC. You're a star in NFL live, then you go on the pivot, you're a star there. Can you share a little bit with the rest of us? My friend, come on, now we're just trying to make an honest living over here in Bristol. You guys.

"But somebody pointed out to me right now. What do you need right now? You're on the road and beats out for who knows how long you're assuming it's just going to be two games. You don't know when you're talking about an orbital bone, you know? What do you need? So that stat line might be too much to expect. How about a triple double? How about something close to it? How about something that's going to give you something what you need? It's time. And that's why you trade for him. I don't think this is an unfair thing to say. I don't think it's an unfair thing to say at all. And how about the fact that this trade hardened for Simmons curry et Al. Could be one big nothing burger when it's all said and done this year. Nothing. Also hate zero. He did it last year on the playoffs. 34 ten and ten. There you go. Let's go. He had a 41 ten and 6. We did it last night. We need it. How about that? Game two. Let's get one. Let's get one. Let's get one. Let's get one for Doc. Let's get one for you. Seems unlikely. Let's go. I would say. Let's get one. In terms of winning the trade as you just said, I would think that at least the guy who saw the court and helped his team. Oh, I'm just one that when it comes down to it. This is what Hardin's got to step in. There? Well. And the MVP. That's what I'm saying. The 75th anniversary team James Harden is not walking through that door. Would I love to see him walk through that door in game two? Absolutely. I would. I want this thing to go deep. I wanted to go long and I want you to be happy. Most of all, and I love Doc Rivers. Am I happiness is very low on the list of things that you want in that scenario. That's not true. That's not true. I would love for excuse me. I would love for the 6s to go on a run, not only because it makes you happy, but this would be fun for the show, but your team goes deep here. Now, I think my team's stinking is better for you in the show because you guys get the crap out of Chris. Chris. Help me out here. When it comes down to it, I want my Friends to be happy. But no matter the situation. A sucking. Now, by the way, he's on, he's on the show Wednesday. Yeah. Tom. We've got Rivera today. We've got Dennis Allen and coach Tomlin on Wednesday. And Brandon staley on Thursday. That's how we're rolling. It makes our uncle bucks listen. This promotional NFL coaching on the Richards and show announcement in the midst of our NBA chat. That was someone who roots for a rival of his team. I wouldn't mind if they got swept. To be happy. Because I like my Friends to be happy. I understand that. You don't want the Yankees to succeed with their ten game winning streak coming over. He draws a line. Almost an 8 game lead on the Red Sox right now, and it's not even, it's not even may the fourth. It's terrible. Some of my friends want Trevor story DFA. And I'm like, guys, it's relaxed. It's been 12 games. Anyway, those are my two points. Inside the playoffs to me, obviously we've got the warriors and the grizzlies playing what looks like to be a Donny brook that could last 7. Right? He got the sons and the Mavs. The sons are doing. They're doing all that Devin Booker. Booker played last night. Shoot the lights out or anything, but had a nice game. They got to this series without him. And by the way, that's a little deceiving the score. I mean, they were up 20 with about 5 years. They gave up a big lead, but they were in control from the start. They're up one. They got one. Did you see that play? The donkey fell. That was one of the scariest things I've seen on the basket. It didn't even look like JaVale McGee really pushed him. I guess maybe he gave me he was kind of a great look like he could have not gotten underneath. Yeah, that's how I looked at it. He was trying to hold on and going, you know, they say ass over tea kettle, is that the same? He landed on his upper back. You don't usually land on the floor. Not in that position. Not a man. He's ugly. Look, it was amazing last night, and they still didn't win, so I think that's what's going to be. And your box and your Celtics. We'll see how that matriculates. Huge game tonight. Huge game tonight. But really, I was hoping for better for you. And I don't have a good feeling. Well, then, after game two of for download two, then we can start. But like I said, game one. Let's get hardened. Let's get hardened going. Let's get the old harden. Let's get the harden that's tough to guard tough to stop. Tough to keep off the free throw line to the line. I only got four free throws. Last night. But I mean, going back to you two weeks ago, you keep off the line. At some point it's going to catch up to him. Well, yeah, I think you said two weeks ago, you believe that it caught up to him. And I felt like you're probably right. Can you cut that as a drop? Let that you're probably right? Real quick, sad about game twos tonight, so both home teams that are played tonight lost game one. Yes, sir. If they win tonight, one one, 51%, the home team goes on to win the series. However, home teams are dropped the first two games. At home. Yes. 84% they lose a series, so massive games for Memphis in Boston tonight. Okay..

"On average earlier in the show. Mike tannenbaum talked about the mismanagement of the cowboys. But there was another situation. That was mismanaged. Mike what else caught your eye. Yeah much too key. Chagrin mike tomlin who is a great coach who should go the hall of fame. Why are you chagrined never mind. We don't wanna talk now. Long story short. They're down to scores thirty literally. The thirty four and a half yard line. It's fourth in like this and rothlisberger like they're going to stay on the field a coach tomlin pumps and that was the game. They were down two scores. And i think sometimes we coaches. They're a little bit too dogmatic. Let me be very specific here. The pittsburgh steelers should be and can be a great defense team but at that point tyson. Allu- got hurt. Tj walkout her. Joe haden was inactive devin. Bush was inactive. And i'm sure what coach thomas like. We're the pittsburgh steelers. We're going to stop them twice. No you're not. You're not missing those four players and to me. That was disappointing. Part of the decision was. I don't think he took a half a step back to say like ordinarily we're gonna pump. Were at home. home opener. Place was rocking. But when watch out a lulu bush and heathens out. They really struggled against the raiders. Especially in the second half and if you think about it that particular play. Here's the different ends of the prospection. Mike tomlin decided not to. And then you go to the san francisco game in cal- shannon's on his plus talk own twenty yard line backed up and i think it was like fourth and inches. They went for got. It was or the ravens asks his guy. Yeah yeah. I wanna go for it. But i think what's interesting when you compare the harbaugh and tomlin decisions was i think with joe and wreck city yesterday. Rex's very close with don martindale of the ravens. Which is you have a much better chance of. Winning the game with lamar jackson defense defending and i think that's where i think tom's decision got a little upside down. Which is when you're missing. Four really good players on defense and derek carr is as high as he is also missing a quarterback though my heathen have lamar jackson. Tomlin doesn't have lamar jack. Better off burger that situation. Maxwell had to a sneak just fallen forward most effective play in the history of saxony defensive coordinator with a defensive mind. Your strength has always been. You're defense you're gonna lean on that go back to a couple of years ago. Mike can you remember not even couple. This was when payton was still plan. That new england had an opportunity to punt the ball. They went for remember that he threw incomplete. The caveat fault yeah there was like fourth in like two or three came up. This backed up in. everyone's what are you doing. ballot check. Check said i've seen my defense it. We're not going to win this game stopping them. I'd rather put the ball in brady's hands and give him an opportunity. They went for failed. They wanted the blues. And i'm not saying tomlin can't be criticized right. I get it. Everyone could be better. But i'm wondering philosophically about this. Mike someone who has never been under five hundred never as a head coach in the nfl ten years now whatever including when he had a backup to a backup playing. He's so competitive. He gets it done. They have a world view. A philosophy right. Isn't it tough to tell that person who's given you those results being consistent with their philosophy. Hey could you do me a favor right over here on the margin. Could you just do this one thing a little differently. If it's not consistent with philosophy. Yeah i would say. Here's a different. So look at bill. Bell nick sabin. They evolved over the years. nick sabin went to alabama. They play great defensive. Early in the century there quarterbacks that got guys like brody crowell. We drafted great. I wish you know. I was channeling. My inner jimmy petar like i should have drafted him as a broadcaster down as a quarterback but the story for another day i love mcelroy..

"We got more super chat here bro. We got thanks being joe. Five dollars in the tonight joe. I'm hoping this is appropriate. Because i didn't read it before. I brought it up. Thanks joe this is a good government. Here's what it comes down to steelers. Defense will keep them in position to win every game. Get that online rolling. Steelers win seven super bowl ring. You know what. Joe that i saw. Thanks me joan. And what to trust this this columbia and boy was it a good one. See you didn't let me down. You didn't let me down. And that's my. That was my point throughout the offseason with people that were so doubt on the steelers. Like do you not realize how good this defense still is. But they lost do pre. Oh but they lost too much of the corner. It's so funny that put this in our staff slack channel. I during the game during the commercial break. I was watching the game with our dad. He was down because my mom was was in town to go to a bridal shower that my wife took her to so. My dad was here to watch the game with me. It was fantastic so during the there was times during commercials i would flip over to red zone for him just so he could see what was going on. Otherwise and what do you know. The one time we flip over just in time on a fourth down play to see adam phelan catch a short pass and take it away for a touchdown against none other than my him. So i didn't see anything else in that game to know what kind of game he had i know but depre- had one tackle what had a really low. Pf score tennessee. Titans fans upset about that. We already talked about the whole big al stuff. It's kind of like they're like. Oh the steelers lost these players but the steelers had in mind with they were gonna do. I mean it was on the website today. I don't know if you saw. Michaels article about is this the best trio of edge rusher at the steelers have had the fast that they have three. What how'd you feel about addresses on on a oh my goodness to me. It was fantastic. Because especially you know with specially with tj coming in not having a whole whole lot of regular contact before this game you worried about you know how stamina would be getting everybody else just rotated. There's three guys constantly and it didn't matter who was in their area near the near the quarterback and knock on the quarterback down and just rican have loved. Yeah yeah. I mean. Just to know out of the eighty five snaps. Tj played sixty nine snaps. Ingram played four. Alex highsmith smith played forty six. So that's how. I thought it was a fantastic division of the snaps. Yeah should keep all the guys. Happy engineer jones got one. Yes okay so. I mean really. That was pretty nice and coach tomlin address that he did today in the press conference. He's like i'm not gonna set up that to make it to be a certain number in a certain way all the time. We're just going to do what needs to be done because we have capable people of doing it so with that. I don't think we're quite. Don't talk about this game. We're going to get to the next game but there's a few more things that we're gonna we're gonna pick up with we come back from the break but we will get into then this week's game because i got kind of important stuff to say about that but we're still trying to determine if it's time to get excited about this steelers team. I think you could tell by our level of excitement. What the answer really is so. If you're with us on the audio side go ahead and click the part. If you're with us here on. Youtube or facebook live gives us a few seconds. We'll be right back. When was the last time you were excited about getting dressed.

"And i don't blame you one bit because you wanna have some credibility but for but people that say the and i know some people are really critical of the national media for bigamists deal for not taking the steelers. You know what i really. Don't blame them. You know what. I'm gonna blame them when they turn around and don't pick him this week that that's what i'm going to play them. Okay so if you think people that that that if you think that someone to be a series person who covers the steelers must pick them every game. You're an idiot so sorry. That's my kind of my written to me by my pick was my pit was twenty four twenty three bills. I thought it could be tight to me. The steelers to win a couple things had to go right for them. Some which i want to talk about here a little bit. Yes so. I'm sorry. I had to go out on that on that bit of a rant. Put him just like i understand if you're like ha ha. Yeah i'm like. I love it. That the steelers went. I thought that they would. I kept saying okay. Say american okay. You're stone crazy win. I thought they could. I just didn't know that they could pull it all together with questions on the defense. Well first of all we've got no questions with defense rich. You bring up what you thought now. This past week. I want to bring up. One is a straight up statement and the other one is a potential point or something to think about a guy Keith butlers ski. Okay was phenomenal. we did not play. What people have gotten used to be regular steeler football and especially some of the steeler defensive football underneath butler we spent most of that game rushing four guessing worked dropping seven. I've seen two reports one. That the steelers blitzed once one at the steelers blitz twice as funny because i actually did the the The mike tyson press conference podcast on the today. I filled in for jeff because he had a dentist. I actually. i can't believe. I said this is such a nerd. But i'm like it doesn't matter if it was one blitz to blitz red blitz blue blitz. So i'm like does like can i go cut that out but yeah it was only one or two right on. I can remember the one. The one i remember. It was trained. Norwood who blitzed so he he. He was one time but anyway the whole plan of rushing four dropping seven. But i think part of the reason keith butler did that was because he said you know what. I liked the four guys. I'm rushing. I think we can still get pressure. You which which leads me with which all kind leads me to one of my points in that was So everybody that's out. There probably knows how much of a star wars fan davis right. Like he is yes. He is a star wars fan. Like crazy i like star wars but probably not near like dave where i'm the much bigger fan is marvel So am i. But you're a fan of but i know you're not a more of a fan like i'm a marvel okay so i kept thinking yesterday and today about one particular player on the steelers. I had seen from marvel movie and quote okay and it's from it's from vendors infinity war an all i could see was someone being down on the bill sideline looking out the steelers defense and saying looking at number ninety seven and saying who is that dude and somebody turn him and in their best drax voice saying that is not a dude. You're you're dude. That's amazing yeah real quick sure. I clarify this. Brian brown says must be an idiot. Not picky against the steelers sitting. You're an idiot. You picked the steelers. I'm saying you're an idiot. If you think that anyone who ever picks against the steelers is a fair weather fan. That was my yes. I think we get that now. So go so a really keith. Butler schemings real pretty much. Stay in nickel-and-dime the whole of the whole game to defend the pass and letting his four guys up front still just wreak havoc on josh allen. All day was phenomenal. Was phenomenal all right. The second thing and this is more of a question potentially cause it's it's an older one hundred percent them but in house. Those of you that have listened for awhile out there know that i spent eleven years as a member of the tribe down mary Doing some work. And we'd know that. Both coach tomlin and coach. Mcdermott were members of trot. Also noticed a lot last year in buffalo games. That coach mcdermott in his staff seemed to be a masters of halftime adjustments. If were was there any thought that matt canada stayed more vanilla in the first half and didn't make adjustment sooner because he didn't steelers didn't want to give the bills the opportunity to make the halftime adjustments and we came out and through some different things that haven't come second half a hope much different outcome. I think you are eighty percent correct there. I'm going to tweak it okay. I don't know that they kept it. Vanilla or whatever. I think they might have had. I never thought about this. That you brought this up. They had had a first-half plan and second. I plan that they knew that there were things that they were gonna do in the second half that they weren't going to show in the first half unless they had to grammy they had so few possessions and everything else so and they were in the game. The whole time i mean. Do you realize neither team reached the red zone until inside the two minute. Warning of the first half yes neither team yes so. That's a really good point that there that it might have been like. Hey if they're going to adjust to what we do in the first half then we're going to have two different. We're going to have another plan for half number two. That is a really good point. I don't know if they did it. But i tell you what they should is. That's what they in essence. It looked like it. Yeah some of the plays in the second half just looked so much different than anything. We'd run in the first half. That's a really good point. You know that. You're like i see to me as a coach and i just want to go do our best. All the time and win early is me. You know spending eleven years down there with plumpy people. And i should explain what that means. A. m. a. is is an acronym it stands for typical william and mary person and what people will marry call each other when they get kind of nerdy or geeky or like that their clumps and so i started thinking about the two coaches and hell tomlin could probably see how good mcdermott is making. All this halftime adjustments. And they thought you know what we're going do things totally different both so the question so it's funny because people were like all the steelers great halftime adjustments. They make great halftime adjustments. Did they make them at halftime or was that the plan the whole time right now because they missed defensive adjustments yeah But nothing. They didn't make great big huge adjustments. But i suddenly saw some plays in the second half from that offense that i was like. Why don't we try. Try that in the first half.

"Be able to do for four quarters because i i know this is a great defense but the pittsburgh steelers are going to have to do a little bit more offensively if they want to have a very long and fruitful season after that coach sean coach tomlin was asked about deonte johnson about coming back into the game. After he was injured to score touchdown coach t. called him a competitor as well as all the other receivers And it did. It did show something that he's able to come back from that injury and get points up on. The board coach was also asked about the blocked punt for miles. Killebrew that ulysses gilbert the third scooped up and brought in for touchdown Basically he said at halftime to his team that the they needed splash. Plays to win this game and see exactly what they got. Coach also pointed. Derek watt in the locker room at halftime mentioning that they needed to even the odds. After giving up that long kickoff return on the first play the game the steelers did just that they got those points back on the board blocking the punt getting it in for the end into the end zone. Which effectively was the dagger in this game. Being able to scoop and score and give the steelers to to score lead act quickly jumping on top of Of the bills who led for most of the day after that took o. Sean was asked about the defense specifically and he thought they played great and he also said having a defensive good he expects them to be great every single time. They take the field Coach salman said that is that is one of those things that he has come to expect from his team This defensive unit has been so good year round or talent wise has been so good that he expects them to be dominant like they were against the bills. And the last thing coach tomlin was asked about Was about to kind of play calling the decision. Making and coach t. Again points to his defense and says when they play that good. It makes it easy to make those coaching decisions. That might be a little more difficult like throwing the ball Late in the game when the steelers were trying to grind that clock out or in other situations like going forward on fourth down the steelers defense was so good. That kind of allows your offense play calling to be a little more aggressive and that says.

"Like the bills. That are this good going in their place winning ugly. It didn't matter the pittsburgh steelers were able to get done. The last thing he mentioned in his opening address was how good d three edge defenders were of course being. Tj watt melvin. Ingram and alex smith. Of course watt had a pair of sacks forced a fumble ingram lived in the backfield all game long enforced pressure after pressure after pressure. Same without excitement. That trio was unbelievable. coach salman also pointed at cam hayward for another guy that had a great day. Of course hayward had a sack Forced a fumble of his own recovered. A fumble knocked a couple. Pass out of the air cam hayward was great on this day so getting into the question period. The first thing coach tomlin was asked about. Was cam sutton's play on that fourth downturn over where he shot the defense and made that tackle in that weird kind of a slant out throw into the backfield. That josh allen made that of course Went for loss of about six yards. The steelers did see kind of a fullback carry on tape and kind of assumed that the next part of that play would be some sort of a kick out to the running back. I'm so the kind of anticipated Something like that was in the playbook but He pointed camps on for making a great football play in his words After that Coach tomlin was asked about how kind of ugly the offense was in this game. Of course early on especially this first half the steelers could basically muster nothing Turn it around the second but coast said it was not a game that they cared about style. Points offensively out. All they cared about was getting on the field going into it hostile environment against one of the best teams in football and coming away with a victory which is exactly what they did Those kind of those kind of successful things that you wanna find on offense is something they're going to have to grow on and.

"And i'm bringing a t- again this week. After the pittsburgh steelers preseason has drawn to a close no they couldn't wrap up the defeated preseason but that may be a good thing depending on your kind of outset mindset on these type of things but the steelers drop in a pretty ugly fashion thirty four to nine to the carolina. Panthers coach tomlin took to the podium straight off the top. He said he was disappointed. In the team's performance surprising to nobody that he wouldn't be happy with that game First and foremost coach tomlin pointed to the offense not being able to take care of the ball as one of the biggest factors in why they performed so poorly. He thought the defense started out. Okay but because the offense was unable to move the football and turn the football over so frequently. They got tired and in doing so. They made mental mistakes and all in all coach tomlin. So the offense and defense were junior varsity which is a kind of a theme for this. This post game press conference from mike tomlin kind of judging guys on whether they were varsity status or junior varsity His words and we will see it to brought up a number of times. Now the last thing before we got to The question period was a breakdown of the injured players. Marcus allen Hurt his hamstring and had to leave the game. Josh jobs at a turf toe. Which saw dwayne haskins reenter the game. Midway through the fourth quarter coach salman would further go on to say at mcfarland's zach. Banner were left at home for treatment to injuries. That they thought would be better. Served a just staying in pittsburgh and getting treated up there. He also was asked later on in this in this. Press conference The status of candidate who was held out of the game because he was sick. There's no more reports on that other than just kennedy being under the weather and something that kinda monitor i suppose in. Today's climate one of the questions. That coach tomlin was directly. Asked was about the long snappers however and we'll start with that one now because christian kunsi of course got all the reps tonight there. Is that kind of long snapping battle that has been going on and survived every round of cuts. so far this steelers were to hang onto kunz. They would have a player that has a million dollars cheaper than candidate and also a better tackler. The pros in camp candidate side is that he snaps the ball at a higher velocity about one tenth of a second faster which yes does make a difference in the nfl. It could be the difference between getting blocked and getting a kick away so it'll be interesting. See how that shakes up whether or not the steelers shut bank on a little bit extra cash and a little bit better special teams coverage skills or someone who can snap the ball faster. That is one to watch as the week goes on and cuts become official taking things off the top now from the question period Coach tomlin was of course asked about dwayne haskins who pretty Pretty pretty adamantly. Put it that day. He was not varsity in this game. it wasn't enough from haskins of course to get the job done. The next question was again on dwayne. Haskins reentering the game and scoring that touchdown very late to ray ray. Mccloud of course Coach tomlin said that might be good for Dwayne haskins to get the taste out of his mouth haskins that is because of his poor performance from earlier in the night to finish in the end zone. But it didn't change anything in terms of the final score the game it It was kind of just a play that could help haskins. Maybe sleep better at night. But it's not going to change the overall grades of the players or how they will be judged upon when time comes down to it to make those cuts Coach tomlin was also asked about what he liked in this game if anything at all and he quite simply put it he didn't like much the final question of course Bondsteel curtains favourite position battle. That we've been monitoring for the last couple of weeks. The punting battle that coach tomlin was asked about really seemed like the only bright spot in the game and the only bright spot of this press conference coach tomlin said presley. Harbin and jordan berry had been varsity. They've been competitive through this entire process. And he's got well. He's going to judge the entire unit special teams wise on film after the game before they can give any fair assessments just to make a prediction myself. It seems like either. Punter has put themselves in a position where the steelers might be able to recoup a draft pick Instead of cutting either them because jordan beria played very well from so maybe the best punting of his career while pressing. Harvard of course burst onto the scene. And we all know the story. If we've been watching the game there with big press so that about wraps things up for the coach tomlin press conference breakdown for the final week of the preseason. Of course we'll be back bringing this action in two weeks time after the pittsburgh steelers take on the buffalo bills. Ladies and gentlemen. It's time for some regular. She's in football. The next you hear this podcast. They games count and boy. Oh boy to. The steelers have a big one to kick the year off with so make. Sure you're dialed into behind the steel curtain dot com. Which once again should be your one stop shop for all things..

"How smart does my thirty percent. Jamal williams ownership in underdog best ball look now Come at me. i'm going to go to another running back on that team. Someone i have in some dynasty and that's Oregon state former beaver dramatic jefferson. Another guy a project him to if not lead the running back group in snaps to be close to it So again just looking for the opportunity with the running back positions going tomorrow. Jefferson detroit hosting indie throw So my second guy. I'm going over to pittsburgh and coach tomlin. You know some five seven guy. He told me technology's not playing. We're not playing this last game. So i'm thinking in jalen. Samuels here gone a little bit further down the depth chart but with the running back position. I just really need like some type of production. He gets the rushing load and then he also can catch out the backfield. I'm just hoping for a couple of dump balls Maybe some garbage time and he catches a bunch pass out backfield and can run up the score from just a little bit all right. Let me Let me pair my The guy who i would be stacking with patrick mahomes and that's He's i believe he's lead. He led the team in snaps from the wide receiver group last week. And that's moco harbin I don't know if the fantasy community has willed their way to like elevating him or if this is just truly they they need to see what they have from a guy who hasn't necessarily performed when it's mattered again. I think he could be the guy to stack if you wanna stack with patrick mahomes co hartman. Fifty five hundred again. Everyone's fifty five hundred. I don't know. I said that. But hosting the minnesota vikings who should be playing all backups Terrell who's your first wide receiver. Well obviously we didn't talk about our lives before we came on the show today because my receiver meco hartman. Like i said i'm stacking them with pack mahomes here and i watched that first half because i'm a huge pack mahomes fan if anybody wants to join a pat fan club. Amd president. i am semi membership. I will send out my email later. And if you want to join you can michael hartman. They were just off a few times. He was targeting him heavy in the red zone like heavy in the red zone and it will just off on those slants by just inch every single time so i think he really wants to get me call harmless some shine get him a really good contract at the end of his tenure. And so you know it's going to start here and hopefully is a either a long burner. That goes for a touchdown. Just something in the red zone. But i think he gets into the end zone this week. All right second guy is going to be my stack. And that's a terrorist marsal junior Again they're playing starters. He appears to be locked in as the the big slot starter This team can be very fun to watch this year. And i think he's going to be a reason. Why so i just i. I like the chances that sam. Sammy dean Turns marshall hookup for a touchdown in their half of play in this game so stacking me. Some darnold grow our second. I'm going to indiana. I'm doing desmond putman batman batman today Second year six round guy Six four so. I think sue wanted twenty five pounds. I think bad Watching him this preseason. He's has six targets in the first game in the second game put together a pretty good hate and he's one of those guys like one of those guys there's late late round drac Could be on the chopping block. This year i know is his name and a couple other names that are on the chopping block of guys that are fighting for that last wide receiver spot. I think all the other five spots have been locked up in his one more. And i think that pacman is really to get it so I'm going with him. I think that he got the opportunity. And then if etlinger is going the whole game he's definitely gonna get the workload 'cause that's gunslinger right there. Yeah i mean i. It's it's certainly going to be an interesting situation watch. I think pamela colts fan. I'm really worried about the health of my starting quarterback. i'll say that all right. My third wide receiver. I'm going back to the jets. I'm actually gonna play a little further down the depth chart and that's braxton berrios just because like this is a perfect. I wasn't a fan of miami but he this type of receiver he's going to be A lot of comfortable throws for whoever's throwing to him. I don't even know if it's with the starters in new york. But i think braxton berrios could see a lotta snaps across multiple units and again. He's going to be running those routes. He's playing for a roster spot so we could see the. Hey hey vet you know. We're we're gonna cut you so we'll give you a little extra time to get that tape down I like the profile for him. So through braxton barrio sin is my last Wide receiver also wanted to fade that The second and third string and ford string for the eagles is maybe the worst secondary i've seen in in a very long ninety even just trying to throw shade at the they. They have looked horrible. And i get it new coach and everything but if you wanna get you tell me what team what unit has looked the worst out of anyone in preseason though the defense phillies is tough to look at all right. Terrell third wide receiver a out our set any eagles slander whenever we can get it but covered some my third wide. receiver is a guy From here columbia. South carolina shy smith for the panthers. he was one of the highest grade wide receivers of the preseason so far by. Pf he's a big guy he can get down the field and makes some crazy catches obscene play. Usc a couple of times. And he's really a baller and i think that Especially at the the guys outside that depth chart outside. Dj more outside. You're obviously tears. Marshall it those guys kinda get some early and then are put out there and show. Smith is at that point the number one receiver that they have soon. I think that he's gonna have an opportunity..
"coach tomlin" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"They're even talking about using different players based on based on game scenarios like a first onslaught if they need one versus a third down guy things like that and because of that. I think you're gonna see james pierre on the field on the outside for when they need to put put something on the inside but it might be that they need sutton inside more by that time But it's all speculation right now. I just want wanna see him all playing well regardless whose out there. My boy lost in. Jane has been playing well. He's been getting a lot of chatter and obviously the interception in philadelphia game another pick in training camp practice. I'm not saying hey people thought lane was getting cut. He's not going anywhere just that he's not going anywhere. All right final question here. So we know that the steelers created some salary cap space by restructuring stefan to its contract. We know the joe Sherbert orange grebo short. It was always my favorites sherbert fan. Yeah they mill is the best anyways When you restructure his deal they kinda redo it dave. Just give us a ballpark real quick. If you know oh our account much space they have remaining. I have it calculated eighteen point one. But there's a lot of things out there that are so sketchy that you have to just go off reports i still can't figure out if trade turner's deal as void years or not. It's crazy so so i would say safely. I would say safely seventeen but it could be as much as eighteen. Point one okay. So seventeen mill in the bank. Now like someone. Like michael beck and i always joke. Because he's he's like they've got money. It's like it's burning a hole in there. He wants to spend it right now. That's not the question. The question is what do you think if you're predicting what's the next move the steelers make if any at all brian what do you think i think it's what i really think that they need to get that going. I feel like it's progressing towards that. We keep on saying the progress being made. I don't think they want this to extend much longer. So i think they're gonna make a concerted effort to get that done now as the very next move. I don't think that we're going to get the the captain. Blue checkmark blue light special in go ahead and trade for stefan gilmore trade for patrick mahomes and trade for god. So that being said it's a very michael beck thing now michael. But he's going to fit under the salary cap in that. I mean he he has everybody pennsylvania i would love to see his madden team. You know i mean i. I would like to see everybody on his team steelers. You've i'm sure you've got you've got patrick mahomes there. You've got michael thomas you got all these great everybody. They're probably loaded. And they go to know that might be a mattie pepperell thing too. I think i think he does that. With matt madden too but now i mean the the next moves gotta be tj. I'd like to see michael. Beck's fantasy football propose trades rage. You jalen daniels for patrick. Mahomes straight up. I think that's a good deal. I'm sure he's going to pick out of a number of all right enough of mike day. What do you think the next dealers news. It's it's it's tj watch. I know some people like mingka at mingka's not this year because they have him for two more years. It's not a very steelers moved to to do the fifth year option. And then do the deal. Now they're they're more likely to that next year. It would save you a crap ton of money. I don't know that it's going to save them. A crap ton of money to do it this year because he's on the last year of his regular rookie deal next year might save some money. I'm almost wondering if they're freeing up this money because the maybe watts camp is wanting him to still have his ten million dollars base this year on top of the signing bonus. That could be. You know that that comes with the new deal because if not what you were generally the have you know league minimum. Which for tj would be nine hundred ninety k. And then everything else is is enormous signing bonus then therefore. I would think that that you could get this done and it wouldn't. You would actually crush the cap. Because like i've reported before if he has if he has a minimum base salary. They could give him a signing bonus of forty five million dollars and it still would not make his salary cap number. Go up for this year. But maybe it's more than that. I i mean if the clearing space in order to do that with what that just kind of seems like that. It's that there's going to be something different that we are necessarily used to sing so i dunno. It's crazy. yeah i think. What do you guys think deal gets done though. Hi brian do you agree that you think it does get done. It's not an issue. It's gonna roll into the regular season. I think it gets time. Yeah because they're not. I don't see them going away from the that whole plan of like once we i kick off in that first game that They don't do contracts in the middle of the season. I really think it gets taken care of if it doesn't get taken care of. I don't see him plane we want. Whoa shoot dave. What do you think you think even hold out. No i don't think he would either there. I think it gets done I think if they end up having to cave the steelers are going to have to pay money and not get them for as many years as they want him. You know what. I'm saying that that would that. They might want him locked in longer than everything but i i think it will be done so the sooner the better i ever. I have a question. Sure mike tomlin says they keep talking about steph onto and everyone's assuming that he's working his way back from the worry miss time or might not be as conditioned. I'm from where he was at so much going on with the passing of his brother coach tomlin specifically said today that i'm not saying anything about he's like he's like i know i'm trying to read exactly where he's like. He doesn't have to report on it this time of year. So he's not gonna say anything about it so it's kind of like does that mean there is also an injury that he's dealing with. My question is there. Is there a possibility where stefan to it ends up on the fifty three man roster for one day and then it ends up on injured reserve to where you could then return after three weeks. It's possible i know. One as he said is he actually heard or are they letting giving them time off. You know we opposite the horrible story of his brother being hit and run down in georgia. I mean it's been traumatic in you when you piece together these you know not just players but also like keith butler interviews. Where he's talking about him butler does not hate and he's pretty pretty honest guy. He doesn't sound like he's too sure that it's guaranteed. He'll be ready. I don't know brian eddie..
"coach tomlin" Discussed on The Pat McAfee Show 2.0
"Hearing how like how coach tomlin handle it he said at first he was like motivating and at one point he came over and he just kinda started talking shit. The buzz and i think tom tom coach tomlin was like. How do i get the buzz. Ause you know like. How do i get the buzz like okay. Some some guys need like motivation. How's the reaction to the motivation to the praise off. Some guys need to poke poke at them a little bit on some guys like there's different ways to coach and reach everybody in from the stories i've been told common is a very very good shit talker so there is no way that mike tomlin sitting on that competition. Committee was like yeah. Let's take shit talk and excitement and emotion because he knows that that's how some of our best players that have ever played in the league like that's how they perform. They need that type of interaction. Go ahead connor. Who insane with ron rivera. To that point like he was on the eighty five bears ditka would eviscerate his players. And then they'd go out and get the job done and when you were talking about players like when the emphasis was on high hits at bo like when james arison anytime he would hit someone fuck it throw a flag and let's find the guy so there are going to be dude. It's like deepak. Like i honestly think of jalen ramsey. He makes so many good players and he celebrates it the way he should. Because he's legitimately changing the course of his family's generational wealth because of the fact that he plays well but he's going to get flak after making a not a game winner. Because hopefully you know when you make a game winning pass. They won't flag you for the next game and give you fifteen yards on. Who knows maybe they will. But it's just like at some point there has to be a okay if it's a bind but they gotta it go.

"Lot of steelers. Nation was collectively holding their breath at the end of practice today when one wide receiver chased klay pool went down and did not go off the field under his own power.

"Zach gentry is really turning heads early in the steelers training camp to be exciting to see what he can do. When the actual bullet start flying so to speak on thursday night now cam hayward on saturday. He was the recipient of a najji harris shakedown. He had broken. Through the line of scrimmage. Niger years made a mis- he wasn't going to let that happen again. This is according to brian. Bad kill as the steelers go to their full contact team. Run drill joe higgs back with the first team offense of right. Tackle the pool. Deck banner out ben rothlisberger just dare water in a wheel real route off. Play action while lined up as the f. In matt candidate scheme. that's a fullback. Made a nice catch down the field back. You thought the steelers offensive line did a great a better job run. Blocking kim hayward wasn't about to miss nausea years and the whole again like he did saturday he got to him today. Brought him down with authority and kindly of course nice birds by kaelin bala jr and jalen emails. Who returned to practice on. Monday jujubes misused. You're all off season. Had been talking about and matt canada's offense. He plans on being on the outside more. Well he finally got his wish. He keeps lobbying for more reps on the outside. He beat joe. Haden off the line of scrimmage rothlisberger hidden for a big gain. And it's gonna be tough to get him back into the slot after a big play like that the dust up so the scuffles continue. And for some reason. My goodness it's these rookies and came hayward according to brook prior. Espn cam hayward just got into it. With a pair of offensive lineman kendra green and dan moore. Junior who blocked through the whistle. Hayward wasn't a fan again. I've said it a million times. This isn't the first scuffle between more and hayward kendrick green got into today. They're trying to make a name for themselves. Hayward's not a fan. That's sometimes it's just the way the cookie crumbles as they say it with benny snow away. Kayla mbala jr was starting to make some place. Brian bad reports on a day with no sign of any snell. It's dealers practice ballots. Just another had another nice day spitting away from attack on the backfield. Mike tomlin yells. Good run k b. That's how you know it was a nice play speaking of the aggressiveness. Brook prior rights after ten days of practice. I can't tell you if the offense line will be quote unquote good quite yet. But i can tell you. They will definitely have an edge. This is one of those situations where it's always heard from adrian. Klemm all off season is being aggressive being physical and it seems like this is exactly what we're seeing. Now it's coming to fruition. They might not be the most technically sound but they might just have some nasty to them. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. Pat farms continues awhile practice. He had a really nice catch from ben rothlisberger in the seven on seven session. He seems to have the magnet gloves. I mean my gosh is they catches everything thrown his way in for those. That are still concerned about ben. Rothlisberger de passes prior rights. Ben rothlisberger just hit deonte johnson deep down the field. The pass was probably probably travelled about thirty five yards in the air. The crowd really liked it. he didn't also hit. James washington on the sideline step out of bounds for a deep throw after that. So it seems like my goodness ben rothlisberger deep passes older breath might be okay in twenty. Twenty one rico. Bussey who made a name for himself on. Saturday had another good day on monday. Met at one handed catch made it look easy on a passenger plane. Haskins the players on the sideline love. Did you heard some people. You'll a rico after the play. Good to see a young player making a name for himself. Let's see what he can do when we're talking about actual preseason snaps and repetitions. The goal line drill. That's the biggest drill. They run on some circumstances. Where really physical coach tomlin said. He felt like the offensive line answered. The bell on the goal line drill said. They did largely what they needed to do. Zach banner was a big part of that. All right folks that about does it for this training camp. Recap podcasters a lot of news again. We will be back tomorrow tuesday. They'll be the last training camp.

"He's just making a ridiculous amount of money on the cap this year. What is it 47 against the cap? I think 47 Big Belinelli hit Big Bend's 41 41.25. Okay, Well, that's not gonna happen. And art Rudy spoke about this. And, uh, Obviously there's there's gotta be a new financial direction. Here's here's Mr Rooney. Then you and I could start get into a conversation, he said. Down with Coach Tomlin and Kevin and You're Ben wants to come back. We've left that door open. We've been, I think upfront with van and letting him know that we couldn't have him back under the current contract. And so I think he understands We have some work to do there, so we'll have more Congress patients internally. We'll have more conversations with Ben and finalize some of those decisions. See, this is what smart organizations do. It's not sloppy. There's not like mixed messaging. They're working in sync. They're obviously in tandem on this, which is a great thing. Respect to Big Ben for No understanding that he's probably got to adjust things. If he wants to have a good team next year, if if he didn't have a contract, Not that this will necessarily reflect what his adjusted salary will be in 2021, but the Steelers, But let's say he was a free agent, and he said, I want to play like rivers. Did you know Rivers got $25 million to go and play for the cult's What would his value beyond an open market? This year's a little different is it's saturated. Maybe that would impact But what do you think would probably be about the same s. So here's the thing When you look at his deal, and I'm just looking at it now. The reason that his number is so inflated because I was like, how in the world is it $41 million? Because last year it was it was very manageable. Really, for the last few years has been manageable. 23 points seven last year, 26.2 the year before that, this year. Balloons 2021 that is this upcoming season. 2 41.2 is I just mentioned BT the reason. Is that there's a roster bonus because it this at the time of signing this deal when they gave him this extension, the first extension on then they added, two years on it back in 2019. It was they didn't expect him it, you know, 39 years old to still probably be playing right. And so they put on this roster bonus, which is payable the third day of the league year. So That would be March 20th right of 2021 15 million comes due to him in roster bonus. Other than that he's making four million in base salary and the pope the prorated of part of his signing bonus, just 22 million. That's not new money, so he's really only making $4 million. And then he had the 15 because of the roster bonus. That's what cripples you On top of the prorated portion of his signing bonus. So can they restructure this really easily and it's not a big deal s O to your point. What's the number? Probably 25 to 30 million, um, for one year deal, But I would say right around what's pro rated? What's What's his base salary? $26 million to get it done? Just like it was a Philip Rivers last year in Indianapolis. Yes, you question Why can't This stuff be easy. The third day after the start of the counter year, he's got a roster bonus for $22 million, but his base salaries for but there's separated part. That's funny, but if they give me extension, why is it so convoluted? It is. So does it need to be this way? It doesn't. Here's what you making, but they but it's if it's because of the salary Cap league, bt the NBA's a salary cap a leak. Yeah, but there's a fella like this. It's a soft salary. It's not like this. Well that they're the NBA is better. I Don't disagree. Look, if the fittings look at the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are a extraordinarily successful organization can eat a $15 million more over the cap or whatever is penalized. Get penalized. However, how are you going to do it? You pay luxury tags that goes to you know revenues to get dispersed to the rest of the leg. If the Steelers want to do that. Hang on to big band for another year. Like his last year, his twilight year of his career. Why they should be able to do that? Absolutely. Instead. What they're gonna have to do is extend him. Um, and like Drew Brees. Yes and ADM. Or money to the deal right and make it Yes, It's very convoluted. It shouldn't be. But clearly it is. Because they want the playing field to be perfectly even right. It's why, you know it's why. You know when the Corona virus hit when 111 team had a little bit of an outbreak, all of all the facilities had to close across the across the National Football League. Just that just is what it is, and they ultimately changed. That s O. They became team by team, but they wanted to be a level playing field. But it ignores the realities of of success. Right? A team like the stealers. They've been so successful and they made so much money. They should be able to You know, eat some of their cap and or pay it out in a penalty. You know what I mean? Because they can't know they can't. But here's the even if you're not even if you're not successful, But you want somebody that you cherish Maybe somebody that you drafted. Maybe somebody's in year 13. And you know they're not quite what they were, You know, 67 years ago, but, yeah, There's a little bit of a connection. Maybe not big Ben Roethlisberger type of today, But there's a connection to the fan base. And, you know you want to ease into transitioning this player into retirement. You keep me around you. You don't get crushed financially like you look at the MBA. Right? And I know that I could go toe a million websites and I could say OK. Steph Curry's making $43 million this year 45 next year that his deals up clay re upped. Obviously 35 37 40 and 43 sequence I could look at Wiggins Wiggins on the books for 29.5 31 33, then four years, three years from now is off the books like if you Want to begin constructing You know, trade parameters or a vision. And now that that might not be the best examples. Not gonna trade Steph Curry. But like the Wizards. I know what Bradley bills making. I know what what? What? What Westbrook's make him. I knew what Harding was making with the Houston Rockets. Therefore, we know what he's making with the net. So if you wanna make a trade, you can at least have an intelligent conversation. I gotta be honest with America. When it comes to this. I'm throwing darts at the time with you. I'm not gonna lie to anybody. It's rough to look at. It is ridiculous. Yeah, I agree. Just stupid, But big Ben wants to play again. And you'd be stupid if you're the Steelers and saying Yeah. Been. We want you But this 41, mate, we gotta cut you Sorry, because we can't afford to have you on the books for the third day into the league year. Exactly what I mean. Yeah, right. So the third day to the league year. Forget about week one about March March. 20th can't do it then uncredible gotta go. So look what's gonna happen? He's gonna restructure them. It'll push out, Give him more money and whatever they're converted, and you know, it'll work itself out, but it is very complicated when it doesn't need to. Be, but it doesn't always work itself out for some of the other teams. Maybe not with the primary figure like Ben. Then you wanted a cutting guys because the only reason this is working. The only reason it's gonna work out is because it's been if this was any other player. If this was this was Pouncey their center. It wouldn't work out. They just say sorry, Dude, we gotta cut you. That's true, right? That's true. That's true, ma'am. Her boy will take has been a lot of time on the shore Watson over half the league calling about him, and that's not a surprise and a lot of suitors, obviously for Stafford as well, who's on the open market, so we think we know what Watson will command. What would Stafford command and you know, it kind of seems like we're doing the same dance every couple days here. But who are the teams? That really should make the move for Stafford, the ones that are obvious? And then maybe a couple of reaches that that could make sense if they.

"And that's what they did that end up costing him and before you knew it, they were out of the game before the game even started teak. Yeah, I didn't know you were going there. It's funny when you said you want to get something on the Steelers that this is where I was going to go. They looked utterly, not only unprepared they lacked seemingly lacked. I want to stay in my lane, but I'm sure they wanted to play hard play well, but at least what's transfer through my TV set Last night was was a team that was not prepared. Was not motivated. And, quite frankly, for two longer stretches of the game didn't seem as if they had an issue with the fact that they were getting their ass is kicked. That's right on national TV. Yeah, the touch of the arrival to divisional foe. Look, they took the touchdown that Karim Hunt had Marie was a 12 yard or whatever I had to see. All right, just get the six yard line. He dragged me out to sea. He dragged three guys into the end zone. I mean, who wants it more? That's all we had to see it, and I think he knew Early who wanted it, Maura. Now you give the Steelers some credit. They went on a 16 year old run, and they brought it, You know, Somewhat close Got 23 to 35. But then this is where you shift to credit back to the Browns because The previous brown team doesn't matter when it was good year. Doesn't matter. Pick a coach having those same advantages that they started this year. A previous brown team finds a way to collapse. But I think every team probably does, too. Because because you or mode not every Yeah, you lot. You get comfortable, right? You just Yeah. We got this in hand. All we gotta do is not mess it up. And as soon as you start thinking that That's when you get that's when you end up losing it. And so to respond after that, 16 0, you know, point run by the Steelers with that 40 years it too easy, little check down 40 yard run by, uh, Nick Chubb and all of a sudden it feels like this. This thing is happening. I give them a ton of credit because it's it feels like that's easy, but it's not easy. When it feels easy as easy as it was to start the game for the Brown. I think that's an important point because I personally don't know it's tougher for a team with no collective playoff experience to come in, you know, on the road in a building that has just, you know, thwarted the dreams. Let's face it. Basically, every stadiums thwarted the dreams of Rams fans over the years, but specifically that one what is it 17 18 straight or whatever it is? To be that prepared to play. Given the circumstances that we all know you. No, let up to the game and jump out to a 28 old lead or to have the resilience to make sure you take it on the chin a couple of times and they rip off a 16 or run. And again collectively, not have the experience to lean on together as a in the playoffs to be able to navigate the emotions Invariably that set in when you feel your leader is threatened, which it was. So I mean, those two very different set of emotions and and they handle them great. And the bottom line is this Would Pittsburgh and you see Senate and we've set it on the show for a long time. No balance. The defensive injuries eventually crushed him. That's right. And when you look at that, it's not just last night. You know, you look back The Washington game Big Bend forward 53 times They ran it 14. The game against the bills they lost. That was weak. 14 the next game, Ben through it almost 40 times. They ran it 17 times the inability to get some sort of balance. I don't mean 70 30 or 65, but just so it's not like you need 10. Yeah, that's right. Throwing 60 times. Yes, 15. He literally did 60 times 50. He did look bad. It looks old 60. Don't you know what this ratio is? 16 out of 84. Plays were run place 16 ability. Funny. It's a little It's a zoo around 23% of what? There you go, Neighborhood Ugo 8 80 80 20. That's not a good ratio is horrible. And here's the other part of it is they fell behind early. You abandoned the run force here, but still this is not a one game occurrence. Yes, play them really since the middle of the season. That's right. 1919% bt 19% 19 is terrible. Here's the Here's the other thing, and I don't know where to place this blame, but I'm gonna have to again fall back on Coach Tomlin so beginning of the fourth quarter, it's fourth down there right at the fifth near the 50 yard line. And they punt the ball back. This was the driver. This is the one where they ripped off. 16 points consecutive points their fourth down. They're still down by 12 points. So you gotta go. Gotta go score horrendous to me. What it told me is that the Steelers team despite how horrendously they had played to start the game and inflicted riding, the roller coaster started playing great to pull themselves. You know, within two scores they state for the From the very beginning. They thought they were better. That's why there wasn't that urgency. They thought they were the better team. Maybe they are, but they thought they were the better team on the field. And when you make a decision like that, you're maybe blindly relying on the fact that you are better on paper, but not actually playing better on the field that day. If I'm Mike Tomlin, you have to go for that on fourth down because you work better than the Browns yesterday. Now they may have. You know if you play them eight more times. You beat them, probably eight times. I don't know if I got through that. I don't think they give a gifted them. 24 agree with that gives the others are not, you know. They're not 20. There's no way now. I can't do any ratio on my head. They are that you know, if you win 80, there's a difference. There is not that stark of a difference. It'll matter of fact, when you look at balance, both offensively and defensively, I don't think it's a A reckless assertion to say that the Browns are better and not just because they won last night. But what the Browns do? They're more consistent and more facets of the game. Well, you minutes, but you but you can't convince me especially with well, I guess the circumstances are kind of tilted against the Browns because Denzel Ward was out, they They had some other issues with Cove in their head coach wasn't there practice for weed and practice until Friday week practice on Friday, Bt three break, Okay, but they look more They look, they look more coordinated to me..
