But an additional titans player tested positive on Thursday morning, which led to the temporary cancellation of this contest. The Titans and steelers will not be playing their game this week and the NFL must find a way to rescheduled game by maneuvering weeks and or even possible that the game may be lost. We don't really know yet by the way. NFL has spoken about issues such as this. It seems like they'll do whatever they can within reason to reschedule the game. As we know, the sport of football is a lot different than other sports and rescheduling games could be an issue due to the nature of the sport, but we're GonNa have to see what transpires throughout the year. This may not be the only time that something like this actually occurs and when it happened with the Saint Louis Cardinals Baseball, they could just reschedule doubleheaders at our seven. Years later in the season and kicked, that can down the road. I don't know if you can do that in the NFL is such a physical game and players need time to rehab throughout a week.

Indiana weather is the colts wanted in a pitched the rules committee. They wanted to be able to open the top out at halftime. If the weather had changed since the predictions of the beginning of the game, so if at the beginning of the game there was. Maybe a sixty percent chance of rain for the first hour.

Patriots may soon have to deal with their first Antonio Brown issue and it has to do with his number

"We have to talk about the biggest storyline in the NFL Antonio Brown as it looks like the saga for Antonio in some ways is finally ending and in other ways. It's just beginning for number eighty four as Antonio uh-huh Brown signs a one year proved deal with the New England patriots and it's hilarious because there is so much speculation when all his shenanigans with the Oakland Raiders for going on that really it was just a grand master plan for Bill Bella check to somehow land the all world talent wide receiver in sure enough he gets released from the raiders and later that day signs deal with the New England patriots another huge weapon in the offense four. Tom Brady and this has shades of what Randy Moss did did when he was with the Oakland Raiders. Moss spent some time in Oakland during his games he played for the raiders. You could just see that the big hall of fame wide receivers hardest wasn't in it. He wasn't really producing for the raiders he was now running routes with this full heart. You can just tell that he wasn't the Randy Moss when he was sooner in Oakland and then he goes to the Patriots under Bill Belichick and has a career year a record setting year with Tom. Brady Brady threw for fifty touchdown passes does that offense was just a cold plays away from being the first team to go perfect nineteen in Oh as they were trying to catch the seventy two dolphins they lose of of course the super bowl to the tremendous comeback led by Eli Manning and the New York giants. Is this going to be just like that. Are we gonNA see a patriots team. That could possibly go undefeated after Sunday night. That's a very real possibility that defense for the Patriots absolutely shut down the steelers and and if they know they're gonna get just a boatload of points on the offensive side of the ball you know Bill Belichick GonNa give all of his time and effort to making sure that that defense is ready eighty each and every week for their match. Make sure everyone's healthy ready to go that the scheme is right and we very well could see a run at history again in New England might right sound a bit presumptuous just in week one but the steelers are a classic. AFC favorite especially when they had the big three Bell Brown and Rothlisburger now with two of those three pieces Gone Smith Schuster looks to pick up the slack for Antonio Brown but now yet to find someone to pick up the slack for Juju at that wide receivers Chris to spot you also gotta be be frank here that James Connor is not living on bell. We saw that in that game Sunday night so the steelers were still a good test defensively civilly always are fantastic and brady made them just look like a peewee football team out there as he had no problem going for thirty three points in that game and pass over three hundred honored yards. You put a be in that mix with Josh Gordon Julian Edelman the running back tandem of James White as well as Sony Michelle is going to be a really tough challenge to beat this patriots team and because of that you who who's to say I mean they they could do it. They could do it you. You can't say they can't there. There is a real world possibility with the addition of Antonio Brown that the Patriots could make some history but now we gotta look back at how this came to be an Antonio oneal brown you could tell really from the Gecko once he got into camp once he started running some routes with Derek Carr in this raiders offense something clicked in his head that he did not want. I WANNA be in Oakland. I mean he did the cryotherapy happens and you chalk that up to operator malfunction with the frostbite on the feet then he goes on this insane escapade with the helmet trying to get all that taken care of in think in trying to use his old helmet. He's used forever he. He's had six months to do it and he doesn't think that's enough time to find a new helmet. I mean he's not looking for new kidney. He just needs a helmet you. There's ways to figure that out to make it fit and make it. It'd be comfortable everyone else in the NFL did it why couldn't he that becomes an issue. He's stays out of training camp. He doesn't do the walk throughs. The helmet issue did not mean he couldn't couldn't practice with the team he did that on his own accord and then he goes after the general manager of the raiders after he gets fine for actions he knows our final. He did them with that in mind. There wasn't like that fine just came out of the sky on him and Mike mayock gets verbally costed by Antonio Brown he goes on a barrage. I use of slayer of slurs cuss words to Mike May Auchan your raiders still still planned on playing him in there Monday night game against the broncos broncos that says a lot about the raiders as an organization that they were willing to take this abuse from Antonio Brown and take all this Prima Donna behavior behavior that was happening with Ab and still play him Monday night when he's barely practice with the team we talked earlier in the season here here on this show about how Antonio Brown by taking all this media attention has helped the raiders rookies developed because they haven't had to deal with it and that's still true in the lot of the raiders rookies have talked talked about in themselves and the second year players have said by having Antonio Brown. It's been nice that they haven't had to deal with the media coverage and hard knocks and that was really a lot more centered around Antonio Brown but he's also had a terrible example as an a way to conduct yourself as professional with what he's done with the raiders clearly didn't want to be there show the the reaction video when he finally gets released from the raiders and all of that finally goes down and I think the raiders are better off for it you if you're going to establish a new culture in Oakland. You can't have this going on in your locker room on your sideline. You need to get Antonio Brown out of out of there if he wants out all the better let him go you cut your losses just saved a lot of money by voting that twenty nine million that you would yet. You'RE GONNA pay him over the three years Antonio Brown you get your wish you go you get to play for the Patriots I think both sides can kind of wash their hands of the issue but now the rest of the NFL has to deal with the Patriots and Tom Brady having Tony Brown as viable and very real. You'll weapon for them

And apparently there last two running backs sort of Alabama's out that we know. And now James Connors ankle injury. They really had that other guy. Then we thought or the lose it when you don't have. Been ruled out for Sunday's game against the raiders spin Rothlisberger is running out of people to throw under the bus. Mark. How concerning is Connor's injury for the Steelers are big. It's obviously a big concern. James Connors been great both run on the ball. And in the backfield. You've got backs. There's no question. You know, the one thing got back. Yeah. Baby. Got back. Right. Is that was about yesterday? Same comes in the fourth quarter last week runs a little hat bag option. Catch the ball hoops scores. So I mean, you're you're Ridley is there now the former patriots. So you've got guys to replace him there. But there's a reason cer- start for length of time and certain guys or backups because they practice them. They understand who's who. So does it hurt them? Yeah. James connors. I don't know where he is Costa without yards. I mean, he the guy has been phenomenal for them. And do I think James Connors is good? As is lady mbelle. Absolutely. Not not even not there's no there's no real comparison to the to. He's a great back. He's at different back. But then forward is the guy backing up James Connor. That's all I'm saying you're getting to your you know, when you start I did San Francisco's game last week. You're starting guys on offense in San Francisco. That started the fourth preseason game. Right. That were practiced grog out cross the board all over the place your quarterback receiving core. You're running backs like when you get to that point. There's a reason those guys start the fourth preseason game. Because most of them will be looking for work or watching from the couch. And so when you start to play those guys, of course, it hurts us a football team. Do I think they have the offense of awareness and personnel to overcome it? Yes. They do. They've got a good. They got a good group up front. They've got a couple of tight ends. They can't be difference makers could be up guys you're gonna have to load them up and their rec-. Yes. As a temporary fix until Connor hopefully is back into three weeks. Whatever that ankle injury is gonna however much is going to hamper him. I would be the the biggest concern for me about James Connor is. I don't think it is a two three week timeline. I've if it truly a high ankle sprain, we have seen guys miss a month. And then when they come. My not no one else. That's what I'm that's what I'm saying. And I'm based on the way that that they fell sometime sometime he don't. Another source told me about high Ron injuries in particular. I trust your eye and if their head coach. Loss on head coaches on injuries. I will trust your I particularly I high ankle sprains we've seen guys miss a month and be hampered for a few weeks after that. Now, do I think the Steelers at their best have a dynamic enough passing attack to still play with or beat anybody?.

Stephen A.: 'I'm embarrassed by what I'm seeing from the Pittsburgh Steelers

"Me let me to just a little bit allow me to express to you the alarming level of frustration that I on questionably feel at this particular moment in time. I cannot put into words how disgusted I am. That the Pittsburgh Steelers ended up losing this game. I can't even put it into words. Ben Rothlisberger four hundred sixty two yards passing wasted. James connor. He's no Le vian bell. Juju Smith Schuster, thirteen receptions, one hundred and eighty nine yards wasted. For two reasons above all else. Big Ben Rothlisberger leading the league in red zone interceptions. Do another one yesterday was Shelby Harrison defensive lineman getting blocked in the coverage. And ultimately Ben Rothlisberger throwing the ball right to. Now. We can make the argument that it's the freakish interception that Ben Rothlisberger may have ever thrown as he so eloquent it in the aftermath of their twenty four to seventeen loss to the Denver Broncos yesterday. Denver Broncos team. That's now beating the charges in the Steelers in back to back weeks, by the way, we could go that route. All we can state the obvious. If you watched it throw, ladies and gentlemen, it was an interception. No matter what. Whether it was Shelby, all whether it was Roe. I'm sorry. Shelby. Harris. Oh, whether it was Roby who had. Antonio Brown completely covered. I don't know what the hell big. Ben Rothlisberger was thinking throwing that pass made absolutely positively no sense. Whatever you can point to that specific interception. But it was going to get into septic. It was going to get into septic. There is no doubt about that. There's absolutely positively. No doubt about that. Yet despite case keenum only one hundred ninety seven yards. Despite the fact that Denver didn't have the most formidable run a game to speak of. They still ended up winning the game. I mean Lindsay did have one hundred ten yards on fourteen carries. That's almost eight yards per carry. I got it. But the real culprit and all of this was bent. It was turnovers from Connor. It was a drop touchdown pass from Washington. I mean, I'm just looking around right now at the Pittsburgh Steelers. And I can't even express. The level of my frustration. Because you see regardless of how. But thank Pittsburgh secondary looked earlier in the season. They had got things together. They were looking a little bit better. But now, I'm of the monster. They lost that game yesterday. And I said, dammit, they just lost a trip to the AFC championship game. Now. Now, I'm not saying that laser gentlemen, mama's saying that it's a very simple explanation. And you know, what that explanation is? It's the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers now dropped to what is it a fourth seed. Or at least a three seed in the AFC that means Kansas City and New England both ahead of you. That means to get to the AFC championship game. You're going to have to be one of the other one a row, and I don't think they're going to do that. Now had the Steelers and all likelihood possibly fighting for birth to the AFC championship game at Arrowhead stadium against the kids City Chiefs. You know, what if you had home games prior to that one could stand the believe who knows what kind of upset could transpire maybe I'll get lucky. Now, it's no way in hell.

"And so we're just gonna see how it plays out. I just think is an interesting scenario to watch it play out. But then on the field. I think the big thing on the field. We'll be how much will levian Bill be missed for the Steelers going down the stretch. It's still playing really will. They won what five hot since store now? Like one down one zillion points scores points, they've kind of found their way. And so I was like, well, let me reach out to a couple defensive coaches data faced him that no them, whatever. And I had a D coordinator. Tell me look we're happy that live Bill isn't there because it really allow us to come to dig down and kind of focus on who we want to stop. And he said, look, I think when you play the Steelers particularly down the stretch and in the playoffs you wanna make situation where you take juju Smith Schuster and aby out the game and make James Connor and the tight ends Wenda game. He was like to me. Me. Let's dia slow death as opposed to quick death that AB Schuster can kind of put on us. Another do. That's all that it faces Stiller's early in the season said, look we underestimated Connor con is a really good player. He's not flashy. He's a blue collar player, and we didn't necessarily think he was as good as what he was. So we went in thinking, hey, let's take away eighty four. Takeaway, nineteen don't let those guys get off unless you've kind of convenient. He said look Connor kind of beat us. He hurt us. He said I think they can go into playoffs with him. He said, but their style will look different than the style that we've seen and the more he plays. The more people will get a feel for this offense. Because remember new office coordinator, people didn't know what Randy fincher was going to do with this offense. New number one back in James Connor you still trying to figure are they gonna play the old way or the new way. And so the more that they play the move will get a chance to see this weekend will be good. The Jacksonville Jaguars. Even though the Jaguars aren't. Great aren't playing. Well, right now, that'd be good. But the game that I'm really looking at will be how do they play against pages? Two pages have always been their nemesis depicts known for making people play left-handed. What does the Steelers offense looked like when they don't when they have to play a match up against they have awakened tender. Yeah. On the on the field stuff. Look at the one thing. I would caution on that. And we we talked to probably a lot of the same people. And sometimes in the NFL, coaching wise, they use a phrase what the name the name, even more. So than the game. Like at some point time coaches can't get the names out of their head. Like, I see I I do these charger games. See people in in certain instances double teaming Antonio gates. And unlike Antonio gates is a hall of Famer, but you don't need to double team Antonio gates right now at this point in his career..

"He skipped an entire year. And we're not for James Connor the situation would have been much more dire for the Steelers, and they would have been unprepared for for for life without lady and FRA season. So teams might decide we don't wanna validate this move. We want to make him pay, and they also fits as John FOX pointed out on NFL live be looking at said Steelers situation with James Connor and thinking, maybe these guys aren't worth it. If we have the right personnel behind them. Here's John FOX said, you know, I think the big winners here where the Pittsburgh Steelers. They save fourteen million dollars. Right. And also James Connor. I mean, James Connor wasn't. He wouldn't be having this opportunity had lady I'm Bill showed up to start the season. Whether he missed all a camp and all the preseason he showed up day one of the regular season. I'm not sure James Connor gets this opportunity and and good for him. He'll opportunity knocks you bust the door down. So I'm I'm really happy for James Connor. And you know, he's making the most of his opportunity, you know, you don't want to sit here and beat up on bell. I mean, he he made that choice in that choice. We'll see where it takes. I mean, not everybody's got James Connor rights are not every team is going to be able to say, you know, we don't need you stop asking for so much. We're fine without you. But there are certainly teams that are going to look at that. And say was that worth the money? They almost paid him. I I think the part of the conversation we have to actually sort of separate ourselves from those how good the Steelers are here in in year out. Right. I mean as much as it's easy to come in and say for most fan bases. Hey, look at what the Steelers did maybe on. It's not that important. You have to remember that most teams aren't the Steelers. I mean, you're talking about consistently one of the best teams in the NFL. The they have so much. You're talking about a team as you pull up the last few years last year, thirteen and three eleven and five ten and six eleven and five. This is a good football team. Their idea of a truly disappointing season is eight eight which is the idea of a good season for many teams in the NFL. So I think it's hard to look at it and say, we'll James Caan of Rouge. You don't need it because the Steelers are just stacked and better run than most. Organizations because of the the dynasty that is the patriots. We don't appreciate enough. Mike Tomlin and the Steelers and what they're accomplishing. It's hard for me to say that every other NFL team can look at that and apply that to themselves because most NFL teams don't have a Mike Tomlin. They don't have an organization that's run as well. As the Steelers, and it's hard for me to believe that in an era where salary caps exist because owners can't control themselves from spending. It's hard for me to imagine that, you know, you're if you're jimmer saying, you're the the Indianapolis Colts like we mentioned the other day with basically a hundred and twenty million dollars to spend. I I have a hard time thinking he's going to send any message other than hey, come play with Andrew luck because holy cow. What an offense that would be its benefits there Spain and Jason Fitz with you, of course, on the other side of things not only could leave in bells moves and the way the Steelers have responded affect how other teams view high high level players asking for big money. But on the opposite side players might be looking at what levian bell has done, particularly if he does pull this. Off and get a massive contract with a lot of guaranteed money and think to themselves I'm going to do the same Tedy Bruschi ESPN NFL analyst was on will came today and talked about it the president. He's set now for every player that's about to get this franchise tag again, neck, probably February is when they tag. I don't can't remember. But I mean, they'll think a Levy on and if he gets his money and the free agency coming up, though, they may be willing. They have to decide and look themselves in my willing to make this type of commitment to sit out an entire year to be a free agent, and you know, put this sort of Mark on your reputation, right?.

"If he doesn't it would mean, he will leave over fourteen and a half million dollars on the table, and despite all the drama regarding Levy on bell. The Steelers are on a roll doing no smoke part to the stellar play of running back James Connor Connor has eleven touchdowns in nine games and has become a focal point of Pittsburgh offense. What a year it's been for James. He's been incredibly productive for the Steelers with Levy on bell AB temp for whatever reason bell had fifty seven more touches at this point last year than Connor has in two thousand eighteen but Connor has outgained. Bell from scrimmage and has scored six more touchdowns. Connor has the most scrimmage yards through nine teen games of any player in Steelers history. So this is no disrespect to Levy on bell. This is about what James CONNER has done. It is in a way. Historic at least in terms of that franchise. People will ask do they have enough. So I'll ask do they have enough Tim and field to go the distance with the players that they have on that roster right now. Of course, they do. I think when you look at the production that he's head from that position in comparison to leave you on there hasn't been a drop off. So so you think about it you you have a running back is planning a high level. You've got a Super Bowl winning quarterback. That's still playing high level one of the best receivers in that game. And outstanding offense at y. I mean all fits. They one hundred percent have the ingredients to be a Super Bowl team defensively. They're getting better piggyback on something that coach said in terms of evaluating players, and you know, finding out the why and things of that nature. The truth is this lady on bells actually quicker on bells. Probably a better receiver lady. I'm bill. I think you make the argument is, you know, kind of a shift gear runner and better in the open open field. But so then you figure out why in the world is he more productive than le'veon's bent. Why is that into truth is the reason why is the beauty of team sports in the reality that when you have somebody like that? Everybody else rallies around it in elevates their plate. Like, that's why the why matters in. You're seeing it in Pittsburgh firsthand. This goes back to August when the Levy on bell saga had not really reached the crescendo that it's about to hit it four PM today. The Steelers were touting the excellent improvement from James Connor, and it wasn't just coachspeak. And it wasn't just a way to deflect lady on bell questions. It wasn't legitimate belief that this player in his second year had truly turned the corner. And if we're going to look in the Steelers from a global perspective, I mean, offensively they have so many ingredients to get it done. And Tim just said they're getting better defensively. Five straight games. Not allowing more than twenty one points and eighteen sacks over the past five games. If you wanna find a way to slow down imposing quarterbacks like, Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady or Philip rivers in January game of consequence. You better make make them uncomfortable. We didn't see it the first time they. Played Patrick Mahomes at least not enough in that game against the chiefs. But if they play again this Steelers pass defense as a result of the pass rush. Upfront has been better defensively. Look the real deal right now. Well, it's interesting because you never know how a situation like this will play out, right? The production on the field notwithstanding. Can this divider? Can this cocker you this this Levy on belting? And I think there's no question that this is unified this team. And they've said this is who's here. He's playing well, and we're all systems go. I mean, it you saw the response of the allied. And really that's kind of the nuts and bolts of an offense is the offense of line. And when those guys rally round, you didn't show up, and we put in James Connor you saw that you heard that coming out of that locker room in this day. I think you know, that's inspired this football team. And back to Mike Tomlin. Nothing's done a great job of putting his head in those meetings and getting that defense going and they really played much better defense..

"Vs one the best versus the best TASR loose. And you decide who is the best of the best. It's no time for one v. One with Ted in the Meuse forecourt begins. Thanks. Did you? S James, Connor. Delta's? Yup. Well between the ball from. I've definitely go James Connor. I understand the greatness of Levy and what he's done his career. I do I respected. I put a foot aside. Whatever his decisions are playing not playing sitting out the season the half season his business stuff. Hanging out in Miami. While teams playing games while he's not there with his team. Put all that aside. I need a guy who's two things a guy who's all in. That's the main thing. And that's what James Connor is. He's all in with the Steelers organization and also run style. There is a difference in these two run style. Tough sent the other day in my opinion. I'll take the guy as a former linemen him speaking. When I down block somebody or we do across block off little full block where God you'll tackle you blocked down. I look around pick up a linebacker. That's all quick blocks. You need a back. That's quick wolf you bought and that explodes through that line of scrimmage explodes through that whole. I've always liked that type of back to play behind me as opposed to the guy who's dancing around and joke, and no one Jukes, and no one has a different head shake moves, and and like left Belle. He's amazing. He's amazing player. I'm not saying that I'd rather that guy who hits the whole of. Aggressively fast nonstop like a James Connor. Now, this won't be one less. She laughs it left bell all away. Not no more. I want the guy and the guy was exposed through the whole I'll take James come. Yeah. It's it's interesting because you look at it. I mean, he can't make an argument that lady on bells all NBA was not he's not playing. He's thinking about his contract after the season. And you look at what James has been able to do this year. He's been really productive AMIS averaging over four and a half yards per carry is got ten touchdowns on the ground. He's got a touchdown through the air. Nearly four hundred yards receiving Scott nearly eleven twelve hundred yards of total offense from the line of scrimmage either running or catching the football through nine games this year that's remarkable production. So if you're gonna look at bang for the buck. Definitely go with James galleries twenty three years of age. If you're look at the future, certainly would imagine Connors got more tread left on his tires based on the work. A little bell is if I'm picking the team for one game. I would take bell over over James Connor even with the headaches that he creates even with the drama that he brings and even with the the nonsense that you, and I have talked about this entire year bell. I would take him if I'm going to try if I need to win one game. I think he's just a more talented running back. Now, it all gets modeled, and it gets a little cloudy. You throw everything else into the mix. Janet throw the contract into the mix. If you should do do. So you're going to take James Connor because he's going to give you just as much worse equal to the production might not be as dynamic is J as Livia valve. But it's going to be close air look at you know, being a team guiding to look at James Connor, but in terms of pure talent bell showed himself to be a really special player to light up at the receiver per bra and be able to break down a cornerback able as patient running style waiting for the whole to open up and then exploding through to be able to go from zero to sixty. Ferrari, like four seconds. It's just remarkable watching him play. Now, the attitude I could do away with and and and that's why I if I'm gonna win one game. I've got a splitting hairs here. When one bell over James, Donna, and I take him as the more talented running back. But I think that's what makes it such a fascinating one B one jazz because you can go into number of different directions, and certainly you can easily as you did make an argument for James Connor being the selection. Yeah. I mean that guy says it's tough because like I said earlier, and I agree with a lot of what you said for sure I mean, you can't dispute how grateful player Dallas for Shaw about like, I said, I got. Opportunities been fantastic. Yes. And that to me that's a big deal to you sit opportunity because when you do you either flourish and he did. And also give me the guy who's battled through and conquered cancer. Like this kid has and that he's done that. And how he's able to do that shows his character that shows his toughness that shows what he's made of he's made of some pretty good stock with their kids. So I'm not wavering. I'll take James Connor, no doubt. And I got news for you, still France. Okay. He's you're running back and this year not Levy on down. Yeah. No question about Mike bell or Connor. And the Steelers case, I would definitely take Connor. I think he's rallied the team and he's made him a better football team overall. And I liked their intangibles moving forward. Some free agency standpoint by depict between the two and I was an NFL team. I would go with bell p I go Connor because the NFL is not so much a running back league anymore. And you need a guy just to get the job done. Get across the goal line score that one yard touchdown. And I think. Conor fits the role that running back is now there you go. So couple votes for James kind want to hear from you at eight five five two once you four CBS eight five five two one two four two two seven. Where's your lean? Get aside with myself bell, get aside with TASR Mike p everyone's on board with James Connor which aims Qatar what he's been able to do this year. And it's been a remarkable story for the Steelers, and that's going to be as has mentioned you're running back next year. And you're running back the rest of this season as well. Bell is not going to be reporting at four o'clock by the four pm deadline today. Hit us up on Twitter and Instagram as well at attaches, and the moose we come back.

Odell Beckham Jr. doesn't know if Eli Manning is reason for the New York Giants' struggling offense

"Gonna take over just short of their own thirty yard line to start. Also, an interesting game going on in Cincinnati today where the dolphins have the ball. And today might be an interesting sort of introduce yourself right on right on for the Miami Dolphins because they go through and nobody really believes it. But some eyebrows are raised and then they go into New England. And everyone went well that'll be that'll be the end of that. And it very very clearly wise. But I still am not one hundred percent. Sure. Like, I don't think the dolphins were as good as three an hour. I don't think they were as bad as they were doing the last week. And with the way Cincinnati's played at three and one. I think today will be a day that we learned some things about the dolphins. Yeah. Because this is in a turnover tight defense. Cincinnati. I think I think that they are going to pose a decent threat. This game is in Cincinnati today. And so the dolphins have a hill to climb here. Ten they do it. I always look at the first four games of the season. And we're just on the other side of that now and people have all these really rash opinions about what they've seen through the first quarter of this season. Anybody who knows football knows this. Nobody sees in his loss in the first four games. We gotta get through this hump this no October into November tumble where we get to see who is persevering we've seen it many times. Also, you can sneak into the playoffs with a lower record and make a ton of noise in January. So a lot to be learned about all these teams. Okay, James Connell. With the first score the day. He's gonna pop in from five yards out for the Steelers. What I don't know. After review is whether or not it's going to stand it's going to be closed as to whether or not the knee was down before he reached across the goal line. Also, it looked like Detroit just scored a touchdown. However, I think of flag just called it back, and it was Kenny golladay, which means it really ticks me off because I've got Kenny in bulk leagues. And so this just ruined my breakfast right here. Kenny golladay from fifty yards out. Beautiful cats in the end zone. Touchdown. No, just kidding. There's a flag may have been a hold may have been a whole. I'll say, yeah. I liked this spot for the lions today. You don't like this spot for the lines today? Producer lee. I'm sorry. No. I love the Packers. You know? I love me some Green Bay. You know, I love me all the folks up in Wisconsin. I just think this is a rough spot for Green Bay today there to one and one they're very banged up. They're not clicking. Emma lions at one in three and at home are going to be a desperate football team. And hey, Mike McCarthy give the ball to Aaron Jones. Those are my things I want to say about this football game outside of Detroit's first game against the jets where they got utterly dominated on both sides of the ball. I I really do respect with Matt Patricia has done there. Because those guys didn't quit and boy, oh boy. Field but Tariq hill game. Yup. I was that was low end around and hill took it all the way down to the thirty yard line of the Jags. However, there was a flag along the way. So not in the backfield. But something tells me this is going to be a block in the back, and this is going to. Yeah. All we gotta hold. This one's coming back, at least part of the way. And we'll redo I down so golladay and hill right out of the gate. Not really. They call it on Sammy Watkins, look when you have wideouts who are willing blockers, you love this stuff, and you really do. But that's Jalen Ramsey who is a physical corner, and he got tied up where walk ins and and on his way down. There was a lot of jersey being held. So that one goes back, and they'll be I in twenty instead of I down on the twenty. We did learn this though hill does not seem bothered by the wet grass. No, he he looks at Justice. Yeah. He. Yeah. Tyreek hill can run folks. I don't know if you've noticed this over a short time, and then F L, but he is extraordinary with the ball in his hand. So that is good news for Kansas City. But again, you know, the running game right there on that play. Just a quick outside. Play nearside Kareem hunt. Tackled with a two yard game. I think this is going to have to be a game where you really aimed to run the ball inside the tackles. Because if you're going to stretch the field left auroras should say east and west instead of going north and south you're going to have those situations where runner is going to have to get feedback under him before he can actually turn up field. Okay. I believe that touchdown. Indeed in Pittsburgh was overturned. So the review shows James Connors elbow. We're looking at the freeze frame right now. By the way, he's not down the one. He's done with a one inch line. Yeah. The knows that ball is shy of the goal line with the elbow down. So here comes third and goal from inside the one. On the nose of the ball is almost already breaking the plane. In fact, when I played center when we had situations like this just to screw with the defense. I would put my feet right next to the ball and extend it into the end zone. You know, obviously, those don't count as touchdowns in James Connor with a leaping run over the middle of the offensive formation Steelers. First blood in there, you go. Yeah. So that's what this game's going to be all about if you don't score on one play. It's okay. You'll score on the next one. We're going to see in Pittsburgh today. And now it's official. The Steelers are on the board six nothing with any PAT try on the way. And that is the first score of the game. There are many more no doubt to calm. Baker mayfield's about to take the field March will also join us next as the cardinals and forty Niners. Get ready for battle in the bay later today. It's red zone radio with Mark and rich on Fox Sports radio. Yes, sir. Brown.

Philadelphia Eagles: Carson Wentz's price tag continues to increase

"Plaid cast so far today, Jeff, and I have covered the MLB the NBA and now we move on to the NFL. So on bell obviously has been a hot topic over the. I mean, since the season started reacted because he hasn't been with the Steelers, you had the whole. I mean, stay offense of lime and not really being too happy about it. The last guys you on that as a running back. Yeah. So they weren't too happy about it. I mean, I never really understood why they had a problem with it. You shouldn't be count another pockets. And I mean, we hear these NFL players. Well, we move on with the guys that are here. Do that stay quiet block for James Connor. I mean, it's not that hard. All right now we've been bad haircuts pretty hard to look at though. Now we look at like bells doesn't show it up. Now it's gone to the point where the Steelers might end up trading him, which would make sense and the Philadelphia. Eagles according to an article will article from, I saw from SP nation. The eagles website. Part of it said that was actually from Jason lockenfora and Jason lockenfora actually been wrong about a lot of stuff. So I'm not sure how much you can look at the grain of salt. Yeah, but I mean, you look deeper into it as far as the eagles being a sleeper team it. It's not as crazy as it sounds. All right. Because I saw this and I was like, oh, there's no way that actually happens. But you look at it. Who are the eagles really paying at this point to where they can't afford a lady on Bill.

James Harrison says Le'Veon Bell should return to Pittsburgh Steelers, then fake injury to avoid games

"If you're like me in there, some of you that are, you've got levian bell on your fantasy football team, and you're just waiting. And the way this thing is set up to go is that levian Bill wants to record the twenty nineteen season as service time, which means he doesn't have to show up until November the six, twenty eight season. Yeah. Or or week ten of the season. James Harrison, his teammate today suggested he should come in November, sixteenth, and then faking injury. So he doesn't have to play a single game for the Steelers this year and still becomes an unrestricted free agent after the year. Now, here's a, here's something interesting if the Steelers trade levian bell and there are rumors that they're, they're going to trade him or at least are feeling teams up. The jets are one team that that expressed interest, they would receive a third round compensatory pick in the twenty nineteen draft the upcoming draft. Okay, if a trade him if they trade him, okay. If they just wave him, just say, were sending the franchise tag you go or ever. You want health fellow well met, you get you get a third round compensatory pick in the twenty nineteen draft if they wait until after the season and after the Super Bowl and they decide levian bell leaves, they get a competitor. Ori pick, but it's not till twenty twenty. So in order to get a pick in this upcoming draft, they've got a trade or waive him during this season. So there's incentive there actually is because if you trade 'em you're taking on another salary and other contract, James Connors been pretty effective in very effective. Yeah. Who would have thought that it would end that way? You know there's enough teams that like really could use a running back like Seattle could really use a running back. I could like I, if if you could send him there, Detroit like desperately needs a running, especially a guy but the, but the problem is the same for anybody else. Are you gonna give him? Are you gonna pay him big, right? If he's unrestricted, free it. And how much money are you willing to pay? Levian bell. I'm trying to think what is what is girls number Todd, Gurley nineteen. I think he got nineteen million and I think fifty million guaranteed is levian bell. Gonna get fifty million dollars guaranteed out there. I'm not sure that that's their anywhere else. Yeah, I would see because I think if he got traded, he'd have to prove his worth in running backs. Frankly, don't get traded that often, Eric dickers- and got traded Marshall. Faulk got traded. Even if he gets trade like you can't really trade for them. Because the situation is the same. He can still hold out to week ten and record a year of service time. Agent contract you once he has no incentive to come

"Let's say he's alone in a room and the TV's on is he rooting for James, Connor to perform well is he rooting for the Steelers to win or lose that game. So here's where it gets personal each situation's different. When you're quote unquote talking about somebody else's contract course. But Levy, I'm Bill is in a scenario where for the last six years, he missed the opening leap. In a couple of those situations were self inflicted the Pittsburgh Steelers for those that don't know probably have the best offense of line in the game. So while you're the headline and you deserve all of the acclaim as somebody or led the league in rushing yards, you call eighty six balls out of the backfield a premier dynamic weapon put in our head. We have making two doll, we block full. You like we're a team sport where people don't understand the haven't played. Any team level is regardless of what people say outside in the locker room, and they elevate who's the better player or who's the bigger personality in the locker room. We all eat. Okay. So if you say in rightfully so like your pay and you wanna handed this off season all seasons about me. 'em all of a sudden we start training camp minicamp starting to be about us in all of a sudden gay week. This is about week in the fossil. So when you don't show up, it's almost like sabotage a little bit, so you're not rooting for them to put up fifty points. No. Have any turnovers never punt when Connor does that I foam you like, see, she told you, so he's you think you Vanco four and a sessions you think? He's honestly rooting for the Steelers to trip up a little bit and to sort of need him. That's what I would be doing, but I'm petty. It's all about your Val. Why is he sitting out so that he can keep his value. James Caan can come in and replace them money that he's making. Perhaps his value goes down. But one thing about James, Connor we must discuss. It's not the touchdown does not the fumble. It's his hair. What is this? Like when you go to the barber shop? How do you even describe this to the barber? What is that one in a million? What is that? What is that? He in his best life mino-. What is that hairstyle? How how did he describe that to the barber when he sat down the chair on a shack. Pullback of my version, a mullet with a couple of rings around like Saturn, like, what is that? I don't even know how to describe that. What a good thing is like James Harden's beer or anything else. They probably weren't the first to do it, but maybe he could make it. James Connors, the, I do that, and here's what's going to happen as Levy on Bill continues to hold out, fans are going to gravitate to this and watch. Of course you're going to start seeing fans with their haircut, like of, you know, even if they just hurt me saying it was like, you know what? A good idea. Jodi barber shop and show a picture of someone else of me that like he showed up at the picture like the Sydney Opera House, just just give me that. Fits magic is back Jalen rose, Ryan Fitzpatrick someone who kind of blew up when he was in buffalo and this or moved around in the league a little bit yesterday in New Orleans in the dome against the saints defense..

"You don't want to send me anymore. Pictures of Bridget winning done. I mean, she's a beautiful woman. Okay. So I was just basically reconfirming she was in the movie. I think she would get the edge over Giselle in most pulse that as far as people that were familiar with Coyote ugly anyway. Yeah, and Bridget Moynihan's very of. He's lovely. And Tyra banks was in Coyote, ugly was, yeah. I never saw the movie. Never saw finished season two of Ozark by the way. Wow. Full recommendation. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And I don't get this people say, hey, congrats on Ozark that they think I look like Jason Bateman. I mean, I'll take that. Yeah, but I don't look like Jason Bateman guy, a good looking dude. I see him and Michael j. FOX look a little bit of like I feel like we've thrown his name out when ESPN the movie. Jason Bateman could play. Yeah. If he could if they wanted to have somebody play me, Jason Bateman would be a good good call. Good cast. Yeah, I'd go for that. But yeah, season two, I would highly recommend those are offered. She's on the phone. All right, best and worst of the weekend poli eastern Michigan. Dan, the eagles great win at Purdue Riddick Winfrey surveyors, some bad coaching going on at Purdue or do gave that game away ten times. Wow. And your Maine black bears? Yup. Good football team up there in Maine. They were down twenty one zilch at the end of the first quarter of the western Kentucky at western Kentucky. They score thirty one answer to win thirty one twenty eight over the hilltop, Seton O'Connor. My sort of best e worst of the weekend is actually a Steelers running back James Connors, what's the story with his hair. I have no idea. You don't know? No, it's a fascinating. Yeah, it's fascinating. He's got the front half of it shaved, then there's two lines and then the back half of it. It's like sort of a mullet, but in extreme mullet I don't know. I don't know if that's going to catch on. I hope not. I was just wondering if there was like a, if that was just his personal choice or if he was being hazed or something, but that's well Ed bouchette from the Pittsburgh post gazette is set to join us, and that may is the lead story there at. Can you tell us what is the explanation behind James Connors, haircut. Well, Pittsburgh's a mullet kind of time. You know he's an old school guy? Yeah. We had long hair in high school. You went to high school up the which couple hours north of Pittsburgh, and he had long hair. You gotta cut after he was tackled by one day. But these growing it out again. Yeah. So if the Steelers had lost, what do you think the reaction would be? Well, people Pittsburgh think they did lose. If it wasn't raining so hard here, you know, all those bridges in town. I think they'd be lined up on those bridges jumping off because you know that getting tied by the Cleveland Browns when you have to touchdown lead in the fourth quarter doesn't sit well here. So truly th- they're, they're taking this as a loss. But you know, kinda fortunate to escape with a tie who who's getting a heat today. Ben Roethlisberger. You know, when you have five turnovers, you're gonna take the heat. He knows that he's a big guy, three interceptions, two lost fumbles sacks. One of the interceptions was not his fault went right through the hands of Jesse James, but nevertheless, he forced it in a triple coverage wants to two. And I think Antonio Brown ran the wrong way once on another one, but nevertheless that and, hey, Chris Boswell, he was Mr. clutch last year. He's in a forty two yard or wide lift. Yeah, also with James Connors performance, do you think that got lady on bills attention well, should have gotten his attention whether it motivates him to come in or not? Is another question Dan. We're just bouncing out around here jarring. Thank you. Know what's he gonna do is does that Pont him to come in or or what. You know, this happened a few years ago..
