Sweep the as and somehow or you know somewhat back in it in the wild card race so here we go. Yeah person you were right all along driven i they would take two of three and even i thought that was overly optimistic. I wasn't too certain that that would happen. But bluejays sweep.

Will He Ever Heat Up? Diagnosing Joey Gallo's Skid Since the Trade

"The goal here with Gallo was to lengthen the lineup and diversify the lineup. Left handed bat, he gives tough at bats and he's able to give protection to other guys in the lineup. Perhaps, I mean, it not perhaps. It is certainly paved the way for John Carlos Stanton Luke Voight and Aaron judge to be on the hot treats that they are on right now. And we're thankful for that. But a lot of fans have been sitting here saying, oh, dude, when Joey Gallo heats up, forget about it. Forget about it. This team's gonna be unstoppable. But we have no evidence of him heating up. So Anthony Rizzo heated up right upon his arrival in The Bronx. Made his statement. Singlehandedly, I will go out and say single handedly won that series against one that series sweep against the Marlins. Was it colossal reason for that? That kick started the Yankees incredible run throughout the month of August. But Joey Gallo has yet to really come on. I know we have that go ahead home run against the Mariners. That was an awesome moment to signature Yankee moments since coming over on the trade. But since then, he's grounded into three double plays. In four games, he didn't three double plays before, so it was Saturday Sunday Monday and Tuesday. Over the course of those four games, he grounded into three double plays. He grounded into three double plays in his previous 95 games with the rangers. What how does this how does this even happen? Before that, he grounded into 8 double plays in his previous 346 games. So bad luck, sure, but like, what? When is this gonna stop? So my question is and my doomsday question because I love asking these because I like seeing people freak out. This is just how my brain operates guys. When do we start worrying about this

Always great to have him join us. Brian thanks for your patience. On the top of the hour and great to have you on i i know man. You're com you're former player in the poise of it and i try to approach that way too. I may not be panicked. But i'm gonna tell you right now this team forget the word great right now. They're not real good. Yeah no i agree. They're not playing well at all and It's certainly not a not a situation where you panic. But it's also something that needs to be addressed. I mean they're they're obviously having trouble against these lesser teams. You know matching the intensity against these teams that are in the bottom of the divisions and you know if that happens once or twice you kind of brushed it off but when it continues to happen throughout the season it's something that has to be taken care of and i mean this is a this is not just a situation where they're not playing well. It's a wasted opportunity because oakland's not playing well either in oakland and a tough part of their schedule and this is the time that they're supposed to be you know gaining gaining separation. Yeah yeah and they're not doing it and they're gonna find themselves in a situation where they're in a dogfight at the end of the season and they're going to look back on these couple of weeks and say man. We could've locked it up right then. Brian so with that and we on this show about a month and a half ago we were discussing. I don't even know if we discussed it with you but the teams that beat good teams. I'd rather have because that means they raise their game. But when when we're not playing well in in your career and micro when we lowered our standards or lowered our game and didn't have intensity against bad teams. I thought it was a football character problem for us. We need to be better right. And and or either. More hyper focused. Or what have because everybody's getting paid. So i'll ask you know time to panic. And they play well against good teams. And you're gonna face good teams in the postseason but is this a baseball character. Issue is a focus issue when you're not beating bad teams. What's the.

"So i mean it is. This is a very biased perspective on events and also well we'll do for story so they. Nfl players association. So they paint them in a very interesting light I thought that they without saying it and the headed interview from a spokesperson from the nfl. Pa the kind of painting the as a incompetent. I thought him under the bus. Yeah it was very passive in a way. That i was like wait. What are we doing here when he would get interviewed it. it was very confusing because it it. It wasn't putting them in a good like and it wasn't the nicest thing we did not paint him in good light. And that's a very nice to see i. I don't know. I don't know what the pr guy was trying to do. Their you know so. It was very very confusing for that for those interviews. It was odd because they will talk about all they had to say. This like the lawyers are saying like. Why didn't they say this. That and then they had the spokesperson from the players association. He was just like well. You know. I guess we could have said that but at the time it was like okay. He is weak and ineffectual. So yeah so. I thought it was interesting to and they didn't outright say that the nfl did this but The very strongly implied it but the whole thing about millionaires billionaires. I thought they made a very good case that it's not about millionaires versus billionaires because a very small percentage of nfl players do make. I mean we hear about the stars right but not everyone. Far from the vast majority of hopeless are not stars and they're not millionaires. And i thought that goes. That was really good with going back to who controls the media panic controls. The story did the documentary in any way. Change your opinions on deflate gate. Or roger goodell the nfl. No yeah no it. Didn't i think this this if anything it just reaffirmed how. I felt about certain people in the league. And just like how how that how it works and how like the cogs all fit together. I do find interesting. And i thought this shined to light on on that and i did find it interesting but no i don't i don't feel any different and that's not to say i hate them more.

"Which is like a fucking marketing ploy which goes on my next question like one of the things said the documentary brings up is marketing. It's it's all a pr move. It's all about manipulation that was gonna ask did. Did you see that. Did you feel that after watch because after watching it like a first time i watched it. I was kind of amazed not so much by the deflategate part of it but about the the pr stuff the media manipulation the way they worded things and i was like. Wow that is how it happened and some of those things really did work. Yeah i feel like a good portion of movie is on the marketing ploy that the nfl and just any everybody because it was already in our minds throughout the whole year. It just like oh you know like this is happening right now and and it works and they work. Rice was a horrible horrible thing then fell. And i don't mean to demean what happened. Russian to raiders. I mean the nfl bad publicity and then the concussion thing. They totally nope intended. They totally fumbled that like me so they needed deflate gate end of. I'd never heard it position like that before. I'm sure this documentary is the first to do it by far the most fascinating thing about this documentary was that was that you you get to see how false information gets put into the public realm and it becomes facts even though it is not true. Dow is fascinating because that plays a role in every day life whether it be local news national news whatever whatever yeah right and that part of doctor was very well done very building. Because i didn't think they were gonna touch on any of that. I thought that i it. Be all about deflate gate than i thought it was the. Oh this is a defensively of tom brady. I thought it was and then it starts getting into wait. All this was happening and this is why to flee kielmortgage street becomes very interesting so in this blake mentioned if the nfl's positioned as evil Roger goodell i mean for years. He's been booted draft so much of that. It's a joke this year. They had the piped in the booth. What did you think of the portrayal of roger go. Or how roger goodell on the nfl was cast during this. Like i thought it was interesting. Because he's obviously like the leader of the evil empire type thing right but they make them almost seeing intelligence in a very much so very sneaky like like he played everybody. Yeah and. I think that i liked it. And there's some parts. Where i think i was like you know talking to the screen. Obviously he's the bad guy like this. You're going yeah you're gonna be going for this guy. He i think he's one of the real life eagles against that we have in our world. I'd say that that's not a good steep that we will not age. Well i feel like you know it. Just it played it. Play to that. Character has been made about him yet. No so the one of the main keys you can pick up on the anyb- anybody watching us knows anything about barstool sports. What are the main interviewers is one of the main feature writers and and main principal people of sports and sports has actively taken like almost a militant stance against the nfl. Roger goodell and jackie rate was yeah. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah that guy and If you know anything about them they they hate roger goodell and they don't think that they would put their name on would want would pay him in any good light or the nfl in any good light..

Send it just becomes like jfk in a way where they're just. You could see where the bullet comes. The left the left back to and it just becomes a comedic thing. Almost i get into that at fox. Yeah so did you. Were you surprised. Blake that they got so heavy into the science of just straight up going to be about deflate gate. No i when we got the news. I literally thought to myself. What the fuck could you make a documentary about that for like. Why how and why would you want to. What's the purpose. What kind of information give i did take the went out of their way up first to make it seem like a scientific endeavor was transpiring here air and cold air. The kind of go down together. If anybody who's had to fucking arab their tires after cold night knows that. So i mean okay. That's starts what did you guys think. So there's the a senior the beginning where the scientists from mit of all places. So these are these are not ready. Yeah they probably a. He's going into the air pressure in the formulas and and they're playing this really wacky service gets me sick over like i. That was hilarious. It was like something out. I think it was intentionally hilarious. I felt like something out of the simpsons to me. Yeah music was pretty funny. Yeah so the un the old. What'd you guys.

They're the ones who have to invite. Lambda lambda lambda to their party trial. You know what we see it. It's it's gonna be kind of like there's going to be said of nerds. It's going to be more like loser. Like more losers deeks. Yes rate of geek. So instead of like. I dunno talking about super bells. Those kids were kind of average. Just average kids. Yeah no you're right. You're really shitty. Damascus losers. Nobody really cares for and they're gonna have their day in the sun say though like mclovin is like a conic.

The nerds was going to be the jocks. Obviously one of the jocks is going to become one of the nerds. Then the nerds all gonna get cool at the jocks. It's going to be a very fucking happy-go-lucky twenty twenty one or twenty twenty two whenever this comes out. It's going to be a feel-good movie it's gonna. It's gonna be uniting. It's gonna be it's gonna be a good time or going to try to be that's not bad. That's actually yeah all right.

"So warner brothers will get basically pennies back. Yeah so it's kinda like. Amc did earlier with universal. But now it's like multiple. We'll be changed to a two to one or brothers who is a giant mega corporation. I guess and i just feel like yes. I can do much like i. I don't think yes. Movie theaters are hurting again. As we mentioned this is a very consumer thing consumer-friendly thing but i you cutting down tickets. Yeah sure okay cool. I'm going to i'm sellin. i'm going to go to the theaters. you know. That's not gonna make me wanna go. I'm gonna see home especially during the winter months right now. Fuck that i'll say here. Nice warm in separate december is usually pride one of the prime movie months this when we this would have been what dune in somebody else's coming out this december but i mean i. I think we talked about last week so we will go too much into this week. But i think that now right now as of today people are pissed off at warner brothers but in a few years like we'll look back on and be like well. The were ahead of the curve. I wouldn't be surprised investment. Would it came to but roaming time will tell us nothing that no one can say right now but i do think it's hilarious that There are those that are saying that they're going to do that. In order to prevent warner brothers from making a any any amount of money back is pretty funny One of the things that are so. Where were you guys venture. The nerds fans back loved it. I want to save revenge of the nerds. Well there was three movies. We watch all the time because we're always on. Tv it was. We actually had the vhs for bachelor party. A breakfast club was always on and revenge of the nerds always on so one of the. What clue we loved. What are those four movies were as always. We were always watching. Revenge of the nerds was one of my favorites. I loved revenge of the nerds. Apparently that's being rebooted them. I i feel like it is. I mean look at what revenge of the nerds at the time. I don't think half of that self will be. It's going to be so. Pg thirteen pg pg thirteen. It's not gonna be like raunchy comedy unless they go the believing they're gonna ruin that they're gonna take out the whole rape scene. Did they rapes the girl. There's also that you can't ruin that. You can't ruin know that to take that on the eighties cocaine. You know what is interesting because in one thousand nine hundred eighty four eighty five. Whenever that movie came out there. Was that clear line that you know. Jocks were cool edwards. Were they were. They were nothing square. Change like yours kind of are on top. So how can they do a revenge of the nerds now. I hope they don't like it's just not like the social. Oh so here's the thing. I recently just really watched porkies which we've brought up numerous times on this podcast. Pork is true sex comedy revenge of the nerds as much it kind of like that but it's also like like really rooted in like slapstick dumb. Shit it's way tamer way aamer and it's more it's character driven the than that. You're one rapper. Who goes just short of all those characters. They have like very like this. Is this type of character. Booker. who's dirt but he's not really a nerd but like so like i. I think that's that's what i mean but like if you if you do like another like super bad super bad kind of reminded me of a movie like so. It's like if you do like one of these. Were like these really fun characters that like kind of get into hijinks I can tell him down. I who so but released me..

"So far have the steelers won in L. so week to they don't travel they stay at Heinz field. Fans be there we're not sure yet. We are not sure yet based on the steelers have put plans in place to allegheny county. It's up to allegheny county. To then decide whether they're going to allow some fans to be there or no fans to be there. Still did the Denver broncos come to Heinz field. In Week Two let's break this down a little bit for we take our first break in two thousand nineteen. The Denver broncos finished seven and nine. Last four times that these teams this these two teams have met believe it or not three and one for the broncos. The broncos. The broncos have been the team that has dominated the last four times. They have met opening lines. The steelers are giving five, the home team, and again, this is a one o'clock kick-off on a Sunday in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania you look at the free agent losses for Denver they. Lost Derek. Wolfe to. Baltimore Ravens. They lost cornerback Chris Harris Ron. Ron? Leary. The Offensive Guard. No retirement you look at the acquisitions brought Melvin Gordon running back the nick vinet former steeler. He's not a fan favorite anymore after his not so nice comments on his way out of town and a bunch of other guys picked up off the scrap heap. They did make a trade for AJ boy, the cornerback formerly Jacksonville, and again, their draft class was a pretty impressive. They had pretty good draft. So again, though here you have the steelers coming back home to Heinz field and I know that home field advantage is not going to be the same but you know it's not going to be Joe FLACCO Denver's Ben. Rothlisberger it's going to be drew lock. we're wondering what is this going to look like? What is this offense? GonNa look like is what are the broncos bring to the table? You always have to ask these questions when you're looking at seventy nine last year the Broncos were one of those tough teams to predict. They played well some weeks they played off all other weeks. But. The broncos always seem to play the steelers tough regardless of where the game is played. But last year, their offense averaged a seventeen point six per games. That's actually less than the steelers in two thousand, nineteen their defense. There was good enough to keep them in games. The nineteen point eight point surrendered a game by their defense was tenth in the League last year even though the offense was abysmal, their defense stood on their head on more than one occasion and really kept them in Games. But you know what lock is is a young quarterback. He played in five games last year, he threw for thousand and twenty yards on one hundred, fifty, six attempts threw seven touchdowns only three picks for eight eighty, nine point seven passer rating can a combination of lock Philip, Lindsey in an even Melvin Gordon the third Jerry Judy the rookie a top pick. Can they come to Heinz field and beat the steelers that might be tough I actually think that the steelers are a team that's going to be getting better and better. As the year progresses in, you might even see a really drastic change from week to week two, I see the steelers winning this one mainly because their defense keeps them in it and they score enough points I say steelers win twenty, three to fourteen, twenty, three to fourteen. So that's right again you have. The fact that it's not a very experienced offense mainly their quarterback they're on the road. Will see how this pans out but twenty, three, fourteen, I have the steelers winning that means it yes. I, actually had the steelers going to go to start the season. I don't know for those of you. That know me know that I'm normally wanted to take the steelers to win but I tried to be as honest as I could hear by looking at the numbers and looking at the data so to know. What do they do the next to you? Support for this podcast comes from cdw technologies. Bet cdw Gee we get the migrating your agency to hyper converged infrastructure is challenging. Getty.

"Yeah, and I mean. They weren't getting much up certain point. I was going completely crazy when nick bill and thought that owing gets Bam like if it was especially replace that that was like a match up with attacking it's no bisquick good at that these I actually like him better as kind of as a switch defender than rim-protector something we've talked about before and that is to say it's all bad for the pacers or anything like that. I mean I thought that Justin. Holiday in particular he wouldn't he was hitting shots that I thought looked good. TJ Warren looked a lot better in this one than when Miami just chicane them about a week ago but. The. Especially, like this is just a sure thing Indiana shot forty, two percent from three in this game. But the only attempt twenty four and it's really hard to get the math to work. Right especially, they're not always going to lose the possession game which they did here they only out rebounded the heat by one and they turned it over four extra times, but it just gets so hard when you've all of these things working together, it's GonNa be hard to get good shots. You're not getting the threes. They have I mean they have some capable three point shooters to be sure but it's just not the way their offense structure and they were. Six out of nineteen from mid range that was definitely a struggle for them I thought that really the teaching Warren can kind of get things going at twenty two points and nine of eighteen but he doesn't ever get to the foul line who's also four five from three I would try to get even more three-pointers if I can for him because I think he could beat some switches particularly moving quickly. He's also a good cutter maybe immediately switches again though we talked about it in the preview that this pacers team doesn't have the DNA against switching team I did think that the one place they might WanNa try and go is pick and rolls. Involving dragons because it did look like the one thing that the heat were switching was anything involving targets. Yeah, and so maybe you can either try to get dragon switched onto Malcolm Brogdon who also was actually being guarded by Duncan Robinson, which was interesting with that of a or you could just that's how you can get your two on the ball and pick and roll. There was a couple of MIS communications early between drag it and out of that got turner a dunk one time. So that might be a place where you can go more particularly early in the offense to just try to get things started before you get into your inevitable isolation. Brogden did struggle to shoot it from the outside, but he went to the straight line drives nicely against Duncan Robinson they were switching Bobby Robertson, but that was actually the base matchup and so broadened took advantage of that particularly at twenty two points and tennis says even though he was six eighteen from the field, he also got to the foul line for tests only one other pace or had more than two attempts Zola depot who we'll talk about it was a little bit of a struggle for him in those eight minutes or so that he played but you brought you any other kind of big themes. He brought up dragush and the potential limitations defensively I thought he looked comfortable again offensively thought that things things flowed better when he forward when he was on the floor and when you consider that Miami isn't especially in a lot of the driver's minutes they're not playing a ton of really good offensive players I, thought that they dave either with but we're has his strengths and weaknesses player Bam does too. But like I I, I've been impressed with how just so far. Oh I. Totally agree he looks awesome to me even with that knee brace on but he the able to get to the rim or he was nine in nineteen, four, nine from three, twenty, four, point five assists plus twenty. We talked about how his matchup against Aaron holiday was when we could win he did get holiday in the air once. In the lane for a bad values able sneak in when he needed to their times that holiday helped drag it has a size advantage over he was able to get open for a three office screen as well. So yeah, he definitely looks good and another one of these veterans who I think really helped by just not having to go through entire season before the playoffs began in east start he played. Thirty four minutes I. Mean there's a thought when this season already is going to have to come off the bench and take it easy with them was even going to be in their closing lineup and Zeke going to be go somewhere else in free agency and be a backup point guard. He actually looks fantastic. He looks like he actually is like a top twenty equality point guard guy you can really operating. In pick it. Also Kendrick DNP CD we predicted it that that would be the case about a week ago with some of the travails that he has had some rightfully. So hero has been good dragons has been good. They don't need if somebody else wanted to mention that I think should be concerning for the Pacers is they did get some I would call them surprisingly good contributions from some of their bench players Jakarta Sampson hitting couple of jump shots. He was ten ten points five or six from the field and baby. Bob Zeroed was. About to jump out of his chair when some of those pacers role players including a one in particular. really really got going there. it in at the end of the third is added nine one run to get back into it as it looked after it looked like Miami and taking control in the third. No comment. Yeah and so McConnell McConnell hit like a couple of tough jumpers. I still maintain my concerns about him but let's get to a depot. We'll talk about that and I had a few the smaller notes as well. They run I play for him Jay crowder who looks better he looks quicker fine after that Bang me that he had the Casey game but vigil people should be able to blow by Jae crowder isolation, Jae crowder power for and vitriol deep used to be one of the fastest guys in the League and I play the game they run it for him. He's got the openside being forced baseline Jae crowder just cut him off and he tries again and then he can finished the Jimmy. Butler comes over and forces a mosquito airballs a wide open corner three. then. He had another play where he tried to go for a spin move in the lane he got got stolen. He got beaten up on a back door by Kreider very easily on an HBO which they set up to take advantage of him being a little bit aggressive trying to jump the passing lanes and then unfortunately got poked arguing for rebound late I but didn't really look any better than me didn't look like he can be a second score didn't look like he's someone who's going to be a isolated for. The Pacers. So that was a bit of a problem in hopefully he's able to return in the next semi, not great that he wasn't able to this time but they started edited summer from the second half to kind of run after Duncan Robinson. The a key play in the third was up four point play that Robinson got at sumners expense by the way Robinson he's not quite like Jj Rettig, but he definitely still better going to his right then going to his left when he's coming off the screen so that If you're watching one of these games keep in mind that the he's he shoots a much better senate percent down stats on this but just my observation particularly the populace that he's more comfortable going right. Anything else on this, I got like a couple other like pretty small notes I was I was interested in the idea that both teams when they when they pulled their centers, the they went both teams Roy small was Derek Jones on Car Samson a lot of those minutes and Miami I think part of it was to maintain system continuity but with India with the switch researching and with indy I, was Kinda like I was just kind of trying to figure out like what the theory of that was even though at times it actually kind of worked out Yeah that was rough when it was autobiography against Simpson he had one ridiculous. Of Man yet that was sick but I think he you like we saw in that game against the celtics out of bio could really just Kinda work in a position uses size against someone like Samson they might have to double team in those situations which Miami always has shooting on the let's Kinda difficult sumner is really zero offensively other than just getting out for some fastbreak lay ups another thing to watch. We talked about the Lakers situation at Bam defense on the perimeter he's GonNa. Run the floor..

"A reminder that soon as of September eighth, you will not have to listen to any more ads go to dunk on. DOT SUPPORTING CAST DOT FM. To, find out more linked to that. Of course, is in the show notes more information on how that's GONNA work why we're doing it as opposed a separate pot in that also wrote a long blog posts about it as well. Pretty similar content to what the pot is but please listen to one of the two of those if you're a long-time listener. Because I would like to really explain why we're doing this and also how it's GonNa work the economics of why we felt like we needed to move in that direction. So let's talk. Okay. See and Houston now Danny and this one was a few years of not gone according to plan so far. I. Thought Boston Philly Kinda did this to me looked. Exactly, just about high thought. It was gonNA. Look it. Overall there are some differences obviously, but this is everything that I feared for. Okay. See in this first game right and I thought that other than a few moments like Gallo Galgut to a spots a couple of times it got to the line nine times overall the concerns that I had about Orca. Half court offense in particular. I thought that those all came home to roost partially because they have all these limited players knows like Ken. Will the terrance fergusons of the world beat the thunder or beat the rockets the best team the best team at threat assessment in the entirely. But also I thought the rockets were just excellent. One of the Best Games I've seen them play all year I thought Eric Gordon looked great. I. Thought that they got important contributions from Jeff, green and Ben mclemore off the bench, and despite you know pg Tucker having some foul trouble one point Covington got as I thought I thought the rockets looked the looked every bit the maybe not a top tier contender but. They looked every bit the team that we were excited about when they acquired Covington eighteen minutes in the game. Basically, this is a twenty point game and the first eighteen minutes was atrocious for. Okay. See it. This felt in a lot of ways almost like the Utah Jazz going against this rocket seem early in series when it's just looked so bad for them and you get this feeling of like how the heck of these guys that are going to score and then they'll come back a little bit in the second half and make it like mildly respectable. outscored by sticks in the in the fourth quarter. But this is basically a twenty point game. They got within twelve at one point in the third of that hard hit a step back to restore order he was awesome and I I think the number one thing obviously was okay. Sees offense we said that we didn't think that they're going to be able to stop Houston that well, I don't think Houston can play this while offensively ever game their ball movement was awesome Erik Gordon finished seven seventeen but he looked really good getting to the basket which to me was the most important thing giving them some juice as a Second playmaker guys up pretty well to got the churn going when harden without the game. But we thought this would be decided on the okay city. Okay. See offensive end of the floor and early return. They're just not good at all. No and I mean for it was something for me I thought it was even more pronounced in the non. Chris. Paul. Minutes that they just they just couldn't really get anything going and it's not like he was amazing. It's just that fundamentally work better now shooter denture returned in this one and didn't look quite himself but also be shareholders Alexander. We wondered whether he was going to step up. Even I I was wondering if he was even on the team in the first eighteen minutes of the game right and wasn't really doing a lot with the ball in his hands as a score as a creator and I mean you look at the overall sharp for him to of eight from the field one of three in the restricted area miss two folders. Through three above the breakthroughs in mid one of the. Best isolation how on earth does he have eight shots in thirty five minutes each shots one assistant when turnover. So it's not even like it was and it wasn't like he was create like old budget hockey assist or anything like that either they were they were going in other directions and yeah, I agree with you I think he's their best isolationist and Donovan Inter that and that was something that was really frustrating to me about this series and I think that it has been true for me. There Donovan has gotten a lot of credit in for various things one of them this year I. Think was people thinking this thunder roster was way less talented than actually was, but the rockets are the most call a spade, a spade team. In the NBA Today, maybe I would say even more. So than the bucks you know exactly what they're going to do you know what they're gonNA turn defence into not gonNA turn your offense into and it didn't seem like Billy Donovan went okay. That's what this is going to be. So here's how we're going to do it other than some Gallo stuff like especially Russia and that was really frustrating because you know all that it's Houston the benefit you. Can I push back on that though because I I agree you know exactly what they're gonNA do right. They're going to do pretty much the same thing every game with their switching defensively. But unlike the box the bucks at least you know where you can get a shot against right it's going to be an above the break three. If you have players who can make that shot either off the dribble or you have a big man, you know you can get a shot against Houston they take. Away my Tony said that one of the things they preach on defenses making their man-to-man defense, look like a zone, and so you're not going to just be able to get in the lane and drive and kick necessarily to the guys that you want to. You might be able to kick it to. Diablo in the corner, he'll be open for you if you want a and you're really only lineup that okay see can throw out there where they don't have any non-shooters. That energize energizer bunny unit that had such a great rating with the three guards out there shooter Paul and you'll just Alexander together they still have Steven Adams out there at that point but he can finish around the rim and offense rebound sup and gals good shooter but they can't play that lineup that often and also they don't really have anyone to guard James Harden in that group, and so I'm maybe she's GonNa have to step up and do that a little bit. But then of course, Houston can involve guys intrinsic. Just have PJ Tucker. He's guarded by Stephen Adams go set a screen for harden it as wallet and create an opening that way or whoever is whoever shooters I mean We've got some of this too I mean they they intentionally put schreuder onto harden harden. He's just too strong for shooter. He can shoot over on create the space for the setback anytime he wants to or if he just gets that first step off his like dribbling between the leg day seven times going to his left move, you know he can just kind of power through shooter. And so I I do think that we've seen a lot of teams struggle against Houston and what I wanted to transition to here and I think you. Kind of what you're getting at too is there just isn't enough attention to detail for Houston right because it's it's really the little things that are going to help you beat the Houston Rockets on both ends particularly when you're on offense, but it's okay we need to find the right guy to isolate against. Well, they isolate against James Harden basically one time that I count in the first and that was at least in the first eighteen minutes is twenty in the game was basically done and they tried to post them up like six times. Yeah which you know again, the the the second work and you know you need to force hardened to move off the ball maybe. Get him onto a shooter you need to get quick.

"four games" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast

"It's picking roll going at Nicola Beatriz, at the very first game that we did for NBA League pass the first quarter of that the nets. Spot on them with carelessly vert, just killing food switch and getting it to jared Allen. Production the box run less pick and roll than anybody, and that's partly because they don't have great pick and roll ball handlers. I. Do think that just completely allowing that part of Eric Woods does game to atrophy is something that they regret it. You know used to be a pretty decent picket role player in Phoenix? Feel some contact, draw some BS files, and you know that's also just a wait till I. Call some place for him. Get his confidence going. He doesn't really have anything to do other than transition unless he's handling the ball and pick and roll Giorgio was good. He tried to attack a little bit and the hit sixteen points was very efficient as he always seems to be this year, but he's not going to put pressure on your on your pick and roll defensive. So that's not what he is at. This point is crew. So there are babies matchup advantage for the magic. I didn't see it when the bucks or just housing them deeming Li every time they've played over the last couple of years at least by memory out remember last year. But this year they certainly did they won by an average of seventeen a game this year before tonight. So this going to change the bucks will come out again and be a lot better in the next game Jaanus five turnovers. That's not that good word I. Sixteen is a team. Yeah. Especially, especially, this team like an, you know a lot of that again was the transition, but this is a team that has those again that clipper conservatism they don't force turnovers necessarily and also worth noting as wall only six deals for the magic. So the most of those turnovers usually when they aren't steals, there are a lot less force turnovers just dumb travels and stuff like that illegal. Fouls moving screens. So they're going to play better they will, but I mean, when you look at their three point, shooting wasn't quite enough to open up the lane thirty three percent. That's kind of what these guys are at thirty three percent three point shooting team a lot of times jaanus under fifty percent from the field, and that's even though he shot three seven from three. He missed a lot of bunnies that he could've made to, and then there's faltering four nine. That's not good enough there sixty, four percent the line to. A lot of things went wrong including that there have caught up in spring was finding one four, one of five that Selena good for a half court offense rating, but to be so bad in transition. So there are a lot of indicators they're gonNA flip around the magic shooting, the Bucks Transition Janas to meet better etcetera etcetera some of the some of good players can play more minutes. So would all say the thing that is concerning to me of about this from the bucks perspective is that and this is again not. The. First Time we've seen this with Putin Holzer team. A portion of the playoffs is leaning into your strengths and knowing that what you especially with a great team like the bucks knowing that you can do what you're. GonNa do but another easy way to gain into advantage especially on clearly inferior opponent is to embrace what the other team does poorly and attack that aggressively and like mean going back to you brought up that that nets game that we did for the life gas so it's like I think that Jon did a Really Nice job of going after that and the bucks it's like Bruno's has so much confidence in what they do that. They're like our kind of like we're too good for that, and that might be true in the aggregate over a series but it's I think it's a really dangerous approach and when you compare that to like the way, Nick nurse handles defense, which is basically a lot of it is about what we can do everything. So what can't the other side do and I think it's just a healthy approach to have. Yeah. You definitely like to see this magic team trying to actually beat the bucks on it. Yeah. They did not force nearly a enough of that. The magic had twenty nine assists. That's a lot of assists and you also comparative Clifford Clifford? I think there were modifications from what the magic normally do in a lot of those were understanding the strengths and weaknesses of assistant annoying like trying to take them out of what they do. Whereas Milwaukee didn't do that at all I mean, for example, turns Ross the their whole system is we're going to like really lock and really turns plus I had eighteen points. He didn't make a three-pointer in this game. When's the last time turns Ross had eighteen points without hitting three and only took three of them like he was getting guys back door the time like that was definitely a wrinkle that I would imagine was coaching related. To my recollection is not been a huge part of terrence Russell game for a while Another thing I can point to to, and I was critical this with the box. Again, it's coming back to beat him where last year against Toronto, the raptors repacked the paint against the is and they just and ironic because you know there's that story when but took over like, okay. They have these places where you have to stand to create the spacing tape boxes on the practice floors that are there's always like some guard like Devon, Johnson or George Hill just like hanging out under the rim for some reason, a narrow offense or coniston loves to do that to like. Get Out of there man, you got the the best dunker in the league just space out you guys are good. Three point jurors hit a three legged you. Know, like George Jilin Stephen Generals liked to offensive rebound robb like skin out of their menu can crash for the glass from outside if you want to. All right another quick break here, and then we will get to the next game. Okay. See and Houston who ever taken a class and the teacher just wasn't really that good or they tried to teach. You a bunch of stuff that you already knew who really wondered does this person actually know what they're talking about while you're not gonNA have any such concerns with masterclass because they have true masters of their crafts teaching you and you can learn it all at your own pace whether short digestible video lessons usually ten minutes long downloadable materials, lessons, recipes explored.

"I mean I think that's kind of what Amazon's banking on right that you're just locked in. You're going to go to any other sites. 'cause I mean I aunt and we end this season by pondering. The question is Amazon. Too Big you know and we just don't want to be the United States Amazon. We just really don't land of the giants has been recommended by the New York. Times axios wired and more. It's a candid. Look at the state of Amazon today. How we got here and what the future might look like? The entire first season is out. Now find out more and binging on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP. Is this one of those games. were seeing three linebackers on the field like we did. Wasn't that in Baltimore when we saw all three of them on the field. Yeah because they're like all the big run game will guess what that's because it was. It was a running quarterback. Are The steelers going to bring in that mentality again. which wouldn't be terrible that they could go with that three linebacker sets and if they do then I say both Devin Bush and Mark Baron could it could be key in that situation okay? I'm going to go and stay on the same side of the football. I'm going to say to players and this is the book ends. But debris and T. J. Watt but I believe the cardinals have given up at least forty three maybe forty two sacks this season surrendered a lot of sacks of Kyle lowry. They don't turn the football over the only have nine giveaways this season which is pretty remarkable But at the same time. This kid's been under pressure. The entire season offensive line is not good They obviously traded with Pittsburgh to get Marcus Gilbert he tours. AC Easy Elsa he's out I think the T. J. Watt and Dupree are GONNA be paramount in keeping him in the pocket if he watched even with Baker Mayfield. Who is not a runner? He is elusive but he's not a runner. They struggled especially week eleven on a short week to keep him penned hand in and he even got away a few times on Sunday as well in week. Thirteen so I'm going to say that. What into pre? If they can get home who knows what might set that he might shoot. He might have a huge game and set the Personal the new record for steelers. Single Game's accident a season in week. Fourteen would NAPPI crazy. So what does he have thirteen and a half sacks right now twelve and a half twelve and a half so he needs four to beat it yeah four to beat it four and four games and That would also put him in the top ten all time installer sex three years. Yes something something. I've wanted mentioned earlier not completely forgotten. I know we're running short on time but I just just want to throw this out. There is that if we go back to our predictions and stuff before the season and everything and we talked about this defense and the number of sacks and we were wondering well could could they get fifty again. I said I didn't think they would have never done three years in a row. I Yeah I'm completely don't believe that anymore but we were talking about the number takeaways and we were talking talking about. Could they get twenty two. Oh my twenty five would be great twenty seven. We'll be amazing. Because they had fifteen last year they have thirty. They have doubled doubled. Last year's total in three quarters of the Games. That's insane that's fantastic and Kudos to the steelers defense and Kudos to Kevin Colbert going out there and getting the guys in the off season early in the season to make this happen and audible. When did that start what week? What were we three? Five San Francisco arrive. They had had they they had to think against the against Seattle. They did because one was. Sean Davis Return for a touchdown called back on a penalty. The by now it was mark Barron touchdown called back by. Sean Davis exact. John Davis was involved with it. I know that so but yet but they've had twenty eight since they got Minka and week. This is insane. It's it isn't saying you know the funny thing is is everyone people like Ed Bouchette who I really don't like anymore He always points out the failures in free agency yet he forgets it. Also pinpoint people like Steven Nelson who although hasn't had the turnovers Overs had the takeaways. This year is just played tremendous. Football would a great pickup worth every penny if he asked me Just playing great in no no one. No one's bringing him up. They WanNa talk about the dairy screen. Everyone about Dante moncrieff this year. Everyone wants to bring up these players. That didn't pan out. Morgan Burnett last year. Let's talk about the good is well. That's odd.

"four games" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"And the colts also have to go ahead and play Tampa Bay in Tampa Bay's of very good offensive team right. Now they're very weird team there. Is there a head scratcher. But things are going to shape up and they're gonNA take a lot of shape in this week alone. You're going to see you're going to see the wild card. Take a little more shape right after this week. Right away So you'll see what happens pens. But getting back to Jeff's original comment Texas the Texans and the titans those two teams are going to control everything and I. I would rather go to Tennessee the going face the Texans well and say this is. This is where steeler fans if you're someone that's like me that watches the playoff race and the wild card race and the playoff picture. Because I read the articles multiple Oracle's a week outlining everything fans that they can see a Bryant as routing guide. He puts the playoff picture in there as well where I always look at it this way. If you're you're saying that the steelers only chance which I am saying. This is a wildcard team. Would you rather be the five of the six that depends on where you like the match up. Would you rather be going Kansas City or would you rather be going to Houston and could you get the five seed. You could get the five seed if the bills lose this weekend to the Ravens. The steelers is beat the bills in week. Fifteen in the bill up to play the Patriots one more time that's three losses for them and you'd have the head to head tie with them. You could catapult yourself itself into the five spot but again maybe you'd like the six spot better if the Texans keep winning the Texans. If you say I'd rather go to Houston than I would've Kansas City then you'd want to stay in the six because then I'm not saying that they're gonNA play the results like that. This is a fan speaking. This is not. I'm not saying my Tomlin is looking at the. AFC playoff picture. I said let's just lose a week. Seventeen we can stay the six and play the texts. I'm not suggesting that at all but that's the way I think that's the way I look at things. I look at things and say any no. I Know David the the article earlier this year about lake. Let's take it one game at a time and I get that philosophy the people would launch. I've already said let's just get to the playoffs. Screw that I'm talking about. The steelers are in the playoffs. Let's see who wanna play in the playoffs. You know why because I'm not a coach. I'M A fan. That's why Dave. I'm sure you've been wanting to say some things. Go ahead go. There's so much well another article that ran today. somewhat similar but they both got a lot of views and discussion and things like dazzled brandon. Was I did three games to watch this weekend. And with the La- and I've been doing that for a long time this season It had been in the beginning. It was more about. Let's figure out what the teams are. You know what tells us about teams. The steelers are going to be playing soon. You know matchups against teams at the steelers play both teams or they've played one and played the other stuff like that when we get the last four games are like forget that what's going to need what what means the most to the playoff picture. So the three games that I had I picked was obviously the Tennessee and Oakland game. I put in the Baltimore and Buffalo Game for two reasons one because the steelers play buffalo the next week and then I threw in the the Kansas City New England game because they very well could be playing for whoever wins that game as upper hand of the tiebreaker. And a first around by so the steelers could be dealing with the loser of that game in the first round as a wildcard team. But one thing that I did mention is when it comes to who to cheer for or when it comes to the Ravens in the bills the ravens. The steelers could still win the north by winning out. which would include defeating the Ravens Week? Seventeen when they would have to play for that game. The steelers would also An and sorry not steelers the Ravens would have to lose to the bills and would also have to lose to either the jets or the bengals. So while it's still possible I would call that highly improbable that they they would lose to them but my other thing is. I've been cheering against the Ravens. So long and they're beating these teams that. I thought they weren't going to beat this week when I want them to. beat the bills I watch them. Let me down just because it's how it goes. I say about the Patriots. I've been wanting them to lose forever all right finally patriots. I want you to beat. Beat someone go beat the Ravens and then what they did. So that's what I've learned what I what I really wanted. When there's a team that I always cheer against and then I want them to win it? It usually doesn't work out well so I don't even bother. Go ahead Brian of the. Yeah I I love what you said earlier. Jeff here's the deal first of all we've we've got to do here in. Our job is to write articles and I. It drives me crazy every time when says should be talking about the playoffs. One day to game at a time you you know what we you're right Jeff. We are fans but we also have to look ahead. You want articles from us. You want content. We have to look ahead. We have to do do that. That's our job so what I'm looking ahead not only am. I thinking that if we're going to look at these scenarios we have to assume that the steelers are going to do their job or four scenarios. Don't matter so we're already thinking if they win and I have to put that stupid disclaimer every single time and well. Of course the steelers after take care are business. Because someone's always keyboard warriors Blah Blah Blah Blah and. It drives me crazy but the bottom line to the whole thing is you're assuming they're going to win and not only are you looking at those games you gotta think if we go ahead and win as a six seater a fifth seed and win that first playoff game would we rather go to New England. Would we rather go to Baltimore and you gotta think about that too. You'd think ahead the whole way that's the job of us. You want content. You'RE GONNA get content but you better give us leeway. I think there's a there's a perfect time time even even as a fan and content. Everything what you really start to focus on the playoffs. I think it's the way the NFL season works out and the way that teams even look at the NFL season and they look at it in quarters. Would you hit the last quarter of the season you're talking about teams that are legitimately playoff contenders and ones art. And guess what we hit this week. We are starting to last quarter of the season so this is the time to talk about it because this is that time of year to do or these last four games in my opinion this game and it's the headline of this episode is with four games remaining. This this game in Arizona is absolutely gigantic enormous Gargantuan. Whatever adjective you want to use to describe? How big this game is? It's every bit as big of that because if you look at the steelers for remaining games at Arizona home versus buffalo at the jets and at Baltimore. You have to ask yourself and I'll ask you this real quick right now. His nine wins going to be enough to get you in Brian de think yes or no. Yeah I think they are going to be enough to get in in because I don't expect any of those teams behind Pittsburgh to win out I could. I could consider I can think of maybe a lot. A lot of 'em going three and one possibly but if Pittsburgh goes three and one the rest of the way well I mean that would be still ten and six you would really. I think they could get in there nine seven. It's going be tougher. You're comfortable getting at ten and six. You WanNa get to the position where the Baltimore game. It doesn't really matter way too much and You also don't have a problem with Baltimore getting into a position where they're going ahead and Dan arresting their starters that's fine Yeah and I know a Lotta people are going to go ahead and say well no we WANNA go ahead and beat Lamar. We WanNa beat them. Not just get it in. I don't care how you win how you get in you. Get in and don't worry about that but there's a part of me that thinks if you get into that position and you're play in Baltimore for the last game of the season as well that harbaugh's a little bit of a Wang enough to go ahead and roll the dice. Go led Zeppelin though. I mean the guy on September eleventh two thousand eleven when for a two point conversion when they were up by like like twenty eight late in the game against Pittsburgh just be a jerk and he's a fantastic coach but he's a little bit cleaner and so I could see him risking. The health of Lamar. Jackson has to go ahead and.

"four games" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"To you can oh in there. There's nothing broke back about that mountain so I'm just going to tell you that all right all right go ahead with this dad. Oh my goodness I have so much stuff. I don't know what to do Here's here's the first one came over the last seven games. uh-huh what's the steelers record. Let that at the last seven over the last seven games they're five and two right now l. lasts seven seven six and they are six and one and the only team that that is undefeated over and over over that time would be the Cleveland Browns Ravens Cleveland. Browns beat the Cleveland Browns. Wait I'm sorry. The no that's undefeated undefeated the only needed. I thought you said rape needed. Yeah so that's that's once again. Good Representation from the AFC north there are only two other teams in the NFL that have only one loss over the last seven games and they are not AFC teams only one loss only one loss in the last seven games. So I'm going to stay ahead vying. TEGAS okay two losses. I'M GONNA say New Orleans and that would be the other so yes so the steelers are in very lead had company right now and that's the thing that they are on the streak of all these games now. Part of that is. They looked bad in in a game that they lost. They want a couple of games ugly in there. But that's and they have not been they've only out of those seven games. I think they've been favored in Eh only three of them. 'cause they weren't. They weren't favored against the colts. They weren't favored against the rams. They weren't favored either Tom Against the browns. Who are your favorite against Miami? And they were favored the two games against Antonetti. They've only been favored three out of those seven. Now the colts game was was was like a one point they were one point underdog but but still. That's that's a very. That's a very impressive streak. That not like I say because of the makeup of the team and and everything that people are not talking about. So that's that's one thing another thing. Some of these are just some questions I wanted to pose. Well I'll do everything I that that You guys know that one of the things that's been driving me absolutely crazy. All season is opening drives. Yep It's been the biggest freezing that I've been critical of rain. Defeat ner now. I'm GonNa say something because some people take this the wrong way and not dialing it back. I'm still very upset with rain. Finger play calling but it could be that he's asked to do something else. It could be it. Maybe maybe this is the line that he's hearing. Hey first quarter the game. Don't kill us you know. Maybe that's what he's being told. I am frustrated with the playcalling frustrated with the with the creativity there. But you've really got to hand it to him for taking these young on guys guys that were on other teams weeks ago. I mean whether it's him or his assist or the other coaches that are part of the offense and get those guys out there ready to play and produce so so as much as I wanNA bust on him as a play caller. I'm not GONNA say that. He doesn't have other things that he's really good at which is being able to incorporate all these guys into a game plan. Let's go back to the to the bad opening drives This is how this is how bad it is. The steelers are tied for thirty first with the number. We're of points scored on their opening drive on the season which is still only opening the points. Horno being's right. I want scored on opening drive this year. I don't think they scored a touchdown yet. They have not. I'M GONNA say in six points to field goals eighty. I don't even know if they've gotten a few. I don't know if they've got fuel go near. It is free because they got the field goal against in San Francisco when they got the turnover. Start the game so you so. They're tied for thirty first with the Texans with only three points in the opening drive live. They are in their in dead last thirty second place with three point. Four average plays per opening drive. The next worse is three point nine. They are dead last in the NFL. With four point eight yards per drive on the opening drive with the next worst being fourteen point two so they are almost ten yards less than the thirty first ranked team or opening drives with getting yards per drive. which is interesting because they only have fifty eight yards? Total on opening drives and fifty three of them were in two games the Patriots in the colts the only games I really got first downs. Move The ball. One ended upon the other ended up in a interception and they are tied for thirty first in an average time of opening possession of one minute and fifty six seconds so to say well maybe they just gets long because that's like historically stoorikhel bad for the steelers so as much as you don't want the offense to kill Ya to start you also you also want to feel like you can do do something because when you defer which. I love deferring because of what happened last game. You get seven points at the end of the half you get seven points to start the next half. It's great but if you don't when you defer the your defense basically has to defend two drives or you're going down to scores before you even start and that's almost what happened last game. They because it took him two more than two drives to get a first down. There are down ten nothing before they had a first down so starting faster would be much better her but rather than dive into that too much. I just have one last question. This was a stat I saw today. I want to just wanted. Your Guy's his opinion on it. What what you thought of this and this was out there that the disc was comparing devil? Hodges and Mason Rudolph their Tennessee their tendencies in two thousand nineteen. I don't know if you guys saw this Their average time to throw is almost exactly the same. It's off by point. Oh to their The tight window percentage Rudolph was ten points higher than than hodges just but I just want stats. It's not here. I think hodges throws guys open way more than enough. I don't know that we're not ever did. Their completion percentages both both in the sixties. But what's crazy is the pressure rate. Evelyn Hodges has a pressure rate of fifteen point six. Why Mason Rudolph had a pressure pressure rate of forty five point one so he was pressured three times more often than hodges Do you have any thoughts as to why that was the case. What constitutes a pressure? That's a good question question. Because Devlin Hodges has better pocket mobility and kidscape the pocket so cameras oppressor well. I would say if you have I hump. I don't don't quote me on that someone else might be able to help in the live chat. I think you have to flee the pocket due to pressure than that counts as a pressure. Okay you know what I mean. So what do you guys think I see what Dennis throughout their. What do you think of that? One is the offensive line playing better with hodges. I didn't mean to that Yeah I don't know I mean Rudolf. A lot of people saying that he would step into pressure. It's I like sometimes I don't know and they say and actually the average time to throw it was route off that was lower so they say Rudolph took too long long to throw not the case average time to throw for route office two point eight two seconds for Hodges. It's two point eight four seconds so not that. It's a big difference either way but it. I had a theory but I wanted to know what you guys thought Brian. What are your thoughts? Well if you look at the first half of Mason Rudolphs two thousand nine hundred nine season the if you cut it into like eight games or before the concussion it seemed like he he was less rentable or is that a word that he can be rattled less and it seemed like they were he was getting rattled a whole lot. The war after the concussion when he came back I don't think duck hodges gets rattled and I and maybe it's the fact that I don't know whether whether it's the fact that they respect his arm more because I would actually think they would respect Mason Rudolph armour but with the fact that he's not afraid take chances and it seems like towards the end Mason. Rudolph was afraid to make chances so just like hey let loose and go after them. That's what I'm thinking. What are your thoughts? Dave witcher's theory. My theory is did defenses. Feel because Rudolph didn't go up against any defence in college that Rudolph could not read their defense as well so therefore they could cover it with with less people and they could send more people to pressure. I don't know if that's the case but that's one possible. Answer that that I I thought of is did they know that and if you pressured him he was. ANC in the pocket that that that they could make him uncomfortable and they would send more pressure. I would love to see stats. And I don't have this to break down so maybe I don't know maybe somebody breaks. All the film can tell me this Lance Williams that. How many any rushers did each quarterback face on average you know were they rushing three where they rushing forward rushing rushing six? So I'm just wondering if on average average if they sent more people and that's that's why Rudolph had more pressure but they felt like they could send more people because he wasn't finding the open man. It's it's interesting and a comparison between the two quarterbacks are going to be there for the rest of the season especially if hodges continues to play well and really takes that spot Anything else for the sake this week. Oh No that was more than enough. I talked forever for you guys. It's good it's good stuff all right. Let's get to some talk doc that I wanted to reach out a well H. I'll talk about. Brian didn't article that Iran this morning and it was based on the Four Games remaining for all all the teams that are considered contenders in. AFC in that includes those are vying for the wildcard spot. I WANNA take a look in. Think what you guys want. I want to get ideas to what you all thought about. Not just the steelers. Final Four Games. We've talked about that a lot. But what are these other teams you know the. AFC South is going to really really throw a wrench into a lot of different things. Because when you look at the seating let's assume that the Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens are going to finish one to one way or the other not sure which But let's you know after that you have the chief's hanging around but the cheese rashly..

"four games" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"The steelers preview as we break down the upcoming week fourteen game in the desert against the Arizona Cardinals and joining me as always to round out the triumphant trio. We have Brian. Anthony Davis looking very festive with the tree background. What's going on Brian? Feeling good feeling a whole lot better this week so that every other show that I look good. You're ace flaming bag of dog poop on the Front Porch. I believe the exact comment was that I look like I smoked a bag of dog crap. which I don't you know what that means? You look like a smoked bag of dog crap or do you smoke a bag of dog rat. It looked like I smoked a bag. But that's this by the way for people listening audio or maybe you're watching live on youtube. This was an actual lie. Loza in the live chat wasn't Brian It was on the Youtube. Comments actually. Excellent okay so yeah so. Essentially someone commented on the video saying that. Brian looks like a smoked bag of dog poop. Every every other show or something we founded wildly hysterical and it actually like I said they looked like I smoked it. That doesn't make much percents anyways So let's bring in Dave Dave welcome to the show as again it's going I'm I'm festive my my light light up because I had to use my USB port for my headphones. So I just kept around way too. It lights up it lights up. Good this is my. This is my wife's festivities for her office here in the house so but like I said I couldn't plug it in because I want to be able to talking here. Maybe some of you would prefer if I put the tree in headphones. Don't read comments. That's uh-huh Whoa let me just go ahead and Singapore wow there you go get some Singapore's pretty cool to see where everyone's tuning in from an I echo what but David said earlier of belated. Happy Birthday to Mr Brian. Anthony Davis was purposely. Didn't say anything last night because I knew you're doing the show tonight so I- How's it feel to be thirty five. I tell you what I mean. It felt really good back in two thousand six nicks. Thank you appreciate it. I mean mere like eleven so I mean you look I mean you look walk me. I've an early. I grew in early beard. So anyways let's get right to the Let's get right to the around. The Horn segment not a ton of news this week but nonetheless. There's probably something that we wanted to discuss and talk about. Dave will start with you. What's your topic for around the horn? Oh let's let's go with the really obvious obvious one. Let's go with the AFC north being extremely well represented when it came to AFC players of the month specifically are steelers representative of one. T. J. Watt on the defense so that was a no brainer because he should be in the discussion for defensive player of the year and it was also a no brainer that it was Lamar Jackson from the Ravens. That that got it for the offense is is it just me or is no one talking about. T. J. Watt. And you know it's hard to tell because I listened to Pittsburgh people so when I hear. TJ Wada here Pittsburgh people talking about TJ. What I don't hear enough talk of him when I listened to other stuff but I don't listen to enough other stuff to know that no one's talking about this is this is Brian comes in? Brian listens to a lot of other stuff brian. Are you hearing anyone talk about. TJ For defensive player of the year that not at all it seems like the bosses are a sexy pick. You're always is going to have Aaron Donald. But here's the thing pro. Football Focus has him has him ranked number one as far as edge rushers. So and where. He's looking at as far as being in the sack race. He's only a couple behind. I believe it's shack. Check Barrett in in Tampa. So he's he's only a couple buying their he's very close to James Harrison's team team record for single season so you know what I mean I think people are going to start to catch on. I think it's actually going to this player of the month Honor that he just just received. I actually think it's going to. He's going to gain some steam especially as the team gained some steam in December. Dave answer this question because I know you'll know no and I can't remember off the top of the head during the month of November. Did he ever win an AFC defensive player of the Week Award. All I I. I don't know that he did I did he. Bride I think so Yeah then this year this year so no he has in his career. But I'm saying like how crazy wins if he wanted for the month but never wanted for a week during them. But that's not crazy because you can have one really good week and then follow off the map for the rest of them. This is saying that he was right there weekend and week out for the entire month which he has has been for the month and the season. Yeah all right Brian. What's your around the horn? Well you know what the clock has turned into semper in the Mike Tomlin era when actually let me rephrase that the calendar has turned into December and usually in the Mike Tomlin era when it's December for that team goes on even more of a role Last year not really because in late November. Everything started the things kind of went downhill hill. But that was a very odd year but they still ended up having a A winning record and one more win and the threat of a losing season that everybody thought lot was inevitable back in September and early. October is probably not gonNA probably in hopefully not going to happen. So it's we always want to go ahead and put the bulls eye on Mike Pro. Mike Tomlin for all the problems but just like clockwork here. It comes in. This team is getting stronger. And if this little change at quarterback take shape and takes amazing weird shape that history shows us that it's not supposed to but if something happens that it does then it's just gonNa be another magical December and a We have a lot to be excited about this year. So when it turns December and steeler nation under the Christmas tree. Everybody's getting more and more steeler stuff off and There turns out to be Like a new cool steeler here we go song and it's it's all starting to take shape and I'm feeling feeling some deja-vu well correct me if I'm wrong but didn't hasn't Mike Tomlin. His entire tenure loss single digit games in the month of December in his entire career. I WANNA say to his record in December is ridiculous. Oh it's I believe it's Something thing in six yeah. So he's losses a single digit games in his entire tenure in Pittsburgh he's been the coach two thousand seven. That's remarkable and right now he's on on track and technically if you look at these last four games. We're GONNA talk about that in a second. He should have another reasonable record. Day while your thoughts on that Yeah it's it's looking pretty good too. Well I mainly the first part the Brian talking about when getting away from not having a losing season I mean were there. They're right on the cusp of there. And I also like I. It's interesting because the worst thing about Vista I mean. You've already got one win in it you've got one win for December over so you say you know you're not gonna go winless in December. I don't like that the game that that are there. I hate tecom lesser competition. But it's this late in the season you could say that or on the road so it's not like it's the the best path only have one more home game left out of the last four. So but it could be shaping up that the the most the your most dangerous opponent is at home because it could also be shaping up if everything falls is right at the team that they're facing the last week the season might WanNa be and let's not get anybody hurt mode which is always a nice thing to have to go against although the steelers have still still fared pretty well in those games even when they've done that so yeah I'm I'm excited about December. It's great to know I mean who would have thought back back in September that we would be in this. We'd be able to talk about stuff like this. In December. I mean I know we had hopes I mean we had a lot of hope with stuff going on. But that's because because we just wanted to see the steelers exceeded matter. What but to actually have it? Come through in the way. It is in spite of all the other things that have happened. This is fantastic. Absolutely absolutely and I think the you know Owen. Three one and four is the it was horrible. The of the lows for the steelers fan base and our a website was fueling it. And you know you just think about how crazy to season has been they. They traded their first round pick away. They hadn't won a game yet like you said the only reason the dolphins picked this steelers is because at that time. They're like nick. Oh Oh into just lost Ben Rothlisberger. They're going to give us a higher pick than anybody else. So people WANNA say. I'll just imagine if we had MINKA and Ben. I don't think the dolphins what a what a God with the steelers. If it wasn't for Ben Getting hurt jacket that's a situation. I'd love to know the inner workings of both sides of that trade. Like I would love to know who else was actually involved another in terms of other teams. What they were offering did? Is that true. Like I'm sure there is a lot of truth roosted. At that they saw the steelers is a potential top ten draft pick because of the way their year is going I will. You'll never be privy to that information but I'd love to know what that was but I want want to kind of head Brian. I was just GonNa say that. I think that the Kansas City chiefs were definitely involved in that conversation and at the time it looked like they they were going to be a fourteen into team because of course nobody thought by Patrick mahomes would be getting hurt in that they would be having some problems at running back back without running game as well so you know I just think that there was other teams in there looking at it and saying like Dave said Hey we could really take advantage into the season have possibly top ten picks but the bottom line of the whole thing is that we're not you. The Pittsburgh steelers franchise is is a team. That doesn't have to sell their a team. That usually doesn't give up like Miami was given up pretty early. I mean just right right away they were. They started tanking. And that's just something that we don't do and I love Lance Williams. I'm sorry just maybe laugh. This is actually my living room appreciate but I'm sure my wife will really appreciate you saying that. I'm in the bathroom. And those are her curtains and they're not stabbing but no I'm not I haven't seen woodland said because umbrella further back in the live chat because I wanted to give a shoutout to one. Aaron Hof Master who says he's coming from Charlestown West Virginia and if and if breath and for all I know I've run into you at the Hollywood gaming establishment because I always talk to steeler fans there so Maybe some time I'll catch up up with you there. Have you ever see me. I was in Rayson today actually out so the right next door to visited Charlestown school and Shepherd Sans. I've with into Charlestown more times than I'd like like to put it out. I want to piggyback on my around the Horn quickly. And it's kind of similar to what you all mentioned mentioned Especially Brian. I love the fact that no one is taking this team seriously like no one is..
