"Because he's being chased he doesn't wanna take a big hit. Cameras sutton happened to be two steps. Closer to that quarterback devin bush or bud duprey were so who gets the sack cameron site and didn't even touch the guy right. Those were his. That was his tackle for a loss and a sack in twenty twenty twenty twenty one in game one. He has to legitimate tackles for loss already so just much better. He he is. He has worked on being outside corner. He's prepped for it and he showed that that showed up. Yeah he gave up some receptions very little yards after the catch and just played really. Well he was beaten for a touchdown the man he was encouraged on that down a little bit slow. Great throw though. I mean that's one of those plays where you just throw beat good coverage he was in really good coverage the throw is just better. I honestly i'm going to say. I think cameras just played the best game of his. Nfl career to this point. I mean that. Because i think he's the hardest role he's had to play and he was really good so for me. Cameras sutton great rate game. We've onto james pierre. James pierre was not coming on nickel plays like they thought they might you do instead. James pierre came in on dime snaps. So cameron sutton in the nickel was outside. The kept cameron sutton outside. They put traynor would in the slot for nickel in dime. James pierre came in for one of the linebackers he played outside and sutton slid right back in to the diamondback role that he has played so well for the last three four years. Pierre was solid again not great. You don't need greatness from your number. Four cornerback right outside of one incredible. Pass up he had in the fourth quarter they kind of bit of a blown coverage and you see james pure comment and just you know tomahawk chop the ball right out of the receivers hands and it was a cool play. But it's it's even better when you look at what happened after that. And this is one of those butterfly effect place of course. The butterfly effect is the theory that like a butterfly flaps his wings over here and a soon nami happens because a chain of events occurs right james pierre on second and six knocks the ball out of a receivers hands comes in bloom. Covers receivers wide open jane spear hustles over bam knocks the ball out pass broken up its third and six on third and six cam hayward sacks josh now fourth and twelve on that fourth and twelve play miles killebrew bursts through blocks the pie and the steelers score a touchdown if james pierre doesn't recognize that there's a bride receiver wide open on that play about to catch the ball. It doesn't make it there and knock that ball down the bills convert on second six instead of third and six and a hayward sack you have a first and ten very different drive and quite possibly a different result in the final score. So that's one of those moments. I'd like to pick out where people are like. Oh you know this play was super important. Sometimes there's plays that someone makes like that it's just a hustle play just a just a catch up play. That has a bigger impact than just. Hey you know that's the now. Go to thirty six one..

"An interesting side note on. This is the depth chart came out. We're gonna talk about that In the second half of the show or and talk about the depth chart. We're talk about t. j. watt a little bit. the depth. chart doesn't listen nickelback. It did in the previous version. Antoine brooks was nickelback. Arthur rolette was behind him. The most recent depth chart the steelers came out with an. It's an official depth. Start from the steelers. There is no listing for a nickelback and arthur isn't even on the depth chart it's like. They removed antoine realized. That was the only one on there. Looked at again. We don't know who the nickel is. This just got the position off the depth chart and didn't add. You know one of the players back on did not back on. He's nowhere on the depth chart. So i actually. I should say he wasn't on the initial depth chart. When they did that he's been added back he is. He's a backup cornerback. He starts drink So cancel that. I had this written out and i did that and i realized just now. I'm looking off my script grief when he is martin melendez. The back is a third string quarterback listed behind james pierre Keller witherspoon is listed behind justin lane and there is no nickel position listed on the depth chart. We have no clue who is going to play the nickel this season for the pittsburgh steelers. We just don't know and it looks like the steelers may not know either. Either that i honestly. I think they're going to still be trying out. People are going to be doing tryouts week one We're going to see people. They mess up. Someone else is going to get a chance which you know until someone locks the position. Maybe what they have to do. Go with matchups go with different situations if someone comes in and struggles take them out. Put someone else in until someone takes. The position makes it. There's is going to be really interesting to see how the secondary plays out. Yeah hopefully it's good anyways. That's for the first half of our show. We'll be back in just a minute. After a commercial break without of seen coworkers outside of boxes is very exciting. But if.

"Play to make as a center. Where you snap the ball. And you've gotta get your hands up and you gotta get underneath your opponent. Stand him up when you have someone like brandon williams or claes campbell from baltimore. That's right over top of you. That's a tough play to make. And so i feel like there's going to be more issues in pass blocking than there were last season. But let's also not forget. That last season was when ben rothlisberger was swinging the ball. Two point two seconds and part of me now in hindsight looks and says maybe dow was based on the fact that the steelers could not protect him for a four five. Six seven six step dropback. They couldn't do it. It makes me feel like last. Season's offensive line. The passing numbers they in terms of sacks allowed was nothing but a mirage. It was nothing but smoke and mirrors. And so we'll see. I wish cy hip hop that. I had some type of more tangible answer for you. But i don't think anyone knows i do think they're going to be better in rushing and i do think they might struggle in pass blocking but i do think there'll be okay. I really really do okay last question here in the mail bag. Rob davis asked. Do you think the cornerbacks are good enough to compete. Well one side is fine. And now it'd be none other than joe haden. Joe haden in my opinion is still a really really good cornerback. Now is he what he was ten years ago. Now is he what he was. Five years ago. Joe haden himself joe haden himself said he thinks he's every bit as fast as he was five years ago and now he has. That veteran mind that veteran presence. I'm not worried about joe haden. i'm. I'm worried about him staying healthy. But i'm not worried about joe haden who's opposite of joe haden. I mean james. Peer is he the guy or is cam sutton the guy or are the steelers going to be running this gambit of rotating defensive backs what is going to look like this the one position in my opinion other than say the battle which i don't even think that's a competition anymore but still it's a one position where i don't think anyone knows we know the projected offensive line now. We don't know how they're going to do. But we know who they are. We are the wide receivers the quarterbacks we know the safeties even linebackers defensive front cornerback. No clue no clue especially with our antoni. Hindle internal antwon brooks getting released waived injured. No clue not one. So it's going to be interesting. It's going to be interesting. I do think that if they can find a either a player whether that is james pierre air or whether that someone else i do feel like if they can find that player that can go opposite joe haden in even even if they have to have some situation changes. I think they'll be okay. That defense is good enough. They're going to get pressure on the quarterback. But that's going to be tough question. Mark that i have on this team really is From a personnel standpoint is cornerback. All right so. I know there's a lot of stuff to cover. I know i had to do the breaking news at the beginning. Talking about the five players released in idaho. I'll be back on friday. And i will be talking more about this panther's game. Hopefully we as fans will know something about who's playing who's not. I'll do my segment with mr captain. Blue checkmark mr michael beck will be joining me and You know we'll be getting you ready for the weekend. So in in the meantime have a happy hump day. Do and i will be back on friday.

"They're even talking about using different players based on based on game scenarios like a first onslaught if they need one versus a third down guy things like that and because of that. I think you're gonna see james pierre on the field on the outside for when they need to put put something on the inside but it might be that they need sutton inside more by that time But it's all speculation right now. I just want wanna see him all playing well regardless whose out there. My boy lost in. Jane has been playing well. He's been getting a lot of chatter and obviously the interception in philadelphia game another pick in training camp practice. I'm not saying hey people thought lane was getting cut. He's not going anywhere just that he's not going anywhere. All right final question here. So we know that the steelers created some salary cap space by restructuring stefan to its contract. We know the joe Sherbert orange grebo short. It was always my favorites sherbert fan. Yeah they mill is the best anyways When you restructure his deal they kinda redo it dave. Just give us a ballpark real quick. If you know oh our account much space they have remaining. I have it calculated eighteen point one. But there's a lot of things out there that are so sketchy that you have to just go off reports i still can't figure out if trade turner's deal as void years or not. It's crazy so so i would say safely. I would say safely seventeen but it could be as much as eighteen. Point one okay. So seventeen mill in the bank. Now like someone. Like michael beck and i always joke. Because he's he's like they've got money. It's like it's burning a hole in there. He wants to spend it right now. That's not the question. The question is what do you think if you're predicting what's the next move the steelers make if any at all brian what do you think i think it's what i really think that they need to get that going. I feel like it's progressing towards that. We keep on saying the progress being made. I don't think they want this to extend much longer. So i think they're gonna make a concerted effort to get that done now as the very next move. I don't think that we're going to get the the captain. Blue checkmark blue light special in go ahead and trade for stefan gilmore trade for patrick mahomes and trade for god. So that being said it's a very michael beck thing now michael. But he's going to fit under the salary cap in that. I mean he he has everybody pennsylvania i would love to see his madden team. You know i mean i. I would like to see everybody on his team steelers. You've i'm sure you've got you've got patrick mahomes there. You've got michael thomas you got all these great everybody. They're probably loaded. And they go to know that might be a mattie pepperell thing too. I think i think he does that. With matt madden too but now i mean the the next moves gotta be tj. I'd like to see michael. Beck's fantasy football propose trades rage. You jalen daniels for patrick. Mahomes straight up. I think that's a good deal. I'm sure he's going to pick out of a number of all right enough of mike day. What do you think the next dealers news. It's it's it's tj watch. I know some people like mingka at mingka's not this year because they have him for two more years. It's not a very steelers moved to to do the fifth year option. And then do the deal. Now they're they're more likely to that next year. It would save you a crap ton of money. I don't know that it's going to save them. A crap ton of money to do it this year because he's on the last year of his regular rookie deal next year might save some money. I'm almost wondering if they're freeing up this money because the maybe watts camp is wanting him to still have his ten million dollars base this year on top of the signing bonus. That could be. You know that that comes with the new deal because if not what you were generally the have you know league minimum. Which for tj would be nine hundred ninety k. And then everything else is is enormous signing bonus then therefore. I would think that that you could get this done and it wouldn't. You would actually crush the cap. Because like i've reported before if he has if he has a minimum base salary. They could give him a signing bonus of forty five million dollars and it still would not make his salary cap number. Go up for this year. But maybe it's more than that. I i mean if the clearing space in order to do that with what that just kind of seems like that. It's that there's going to be something different that we are necessarily used to sing so i dunno. It's crazy. yeah i think. What do you guys think deal gets done though. Hi brian do you agree that you think it does get done. It's not an issue. It's gonna roll into the regular season. I think it gets time. Yeah because they're not. I don't see them going away from the that whole plan of like once we i kick off in that first game that They don't do contracts in the middle of the season. I really think it gets taken care of if it doesn't get taken care of. I don't see him plane we want. Whoa shoot dave. What do you think you think even hold out. No i don't think he would either there. I think it gets done I think if they end up having to cave the steelers are going to have to pay money and not get them for as many years as they want him. You know what. I'm saying that that would that. They might want him locked in longer than everything but i i think it will be done so the sooner the better i ever. I have a question. Sure mike tomlin says they keep talking about steph onto and everyone's assuming that he's working his way back from the worry miss time or might not be as conditioned. I'm from where he was at so much going on with the passing of his brother coach tomlin specifically said today that i'm not saying anything about he's like he's like i know i'm trying to read exactly where he's like. He doesn't have to report on it this time of year. So he's not gonna say anything about it so it's kind of like does that mean there is also an injury that he's dealing with. My question is there. Is there a possibility where stefan to it ends up on the fifty three man roster for one day and then it ends up on injured reserve to where you could then return after three weeks. It's possible i know. One as he said is he actually heard or are they letting giving them time off. You know we opposite the horrible story of his brother being hit and run down in georgia. I mean it's been traumatic in you when you piece together these you know not just players but also like keith butler interviews. Where he's talking about him butler does not hate and he's pretty pretty honest guy. He doesn't sound like he's too sure that it's guaranteed. He'll be ready. I don't know brian eddie..

"You with those guys you knew they were constance and if they were if you ask the question with those guys on the line you'll be saying no they're not getting replaced. These guys are will be there until their injure but this is this is a different a different line that there's so many question marks and question marks have the potential to let you down so j. The question again is the starting projected off lines is assuming that it's the five that we talked about earlier in the show. Will that be barring injury. No one gets hurt. Will that be the same offense line. They finished the regular season. With what do you think that. Barring injury is the thing because frankly i think if the steelers are going to change anything up it would be more because of that. I know because you because the problem is even look at what they did last year when they still didn't play kevin dotson in the playoff game because they were how they were with the guys that they wanted as their starting line. That's the biggest reasons i would say that. Perhaps they don't but the reason if they possibly would. I don't know that it's as much as guys not getting it done as it is. I like i'm right now now granted. It's the preseason. But i really excited about some of these other guys on the offensive line like i said a lot of people said in the live chat is there. Are they going to get to a point. Where they're going to have to treat dan moore junior like they shoulda treated Kevin dotson last year. I would like to say yeah that you can't keep that guy off the field. The problem is even as good as kevin dotson was last year. They still wouldn't start them if they if they didn't have to. And that's the only thing that's holding me back. But i could see someone like a dan moore junior being ready to go. I could even see. Bj finney being a good. A good option guard if things aren't working out with mister turner as brian says. I'm still hoping we can get the magic back with him eventually. It'll take some time and jeff. I have to say one more thing because there someone that are. That's really upset about this in the live chat. It's my new hats on monday. Freeze answered this question. My gosh okay elite insulin again. What is it. It's a black on black steelers logo. Where only the top. Hypo psych loyd is gold national. I wish all of them will go with local on cooler. Fell three of them were. I already have a black hat. That has no. I have a black cat. That has the gold with the black kids sitting right over there but this was just different and unique. And i'm like oh i'll i'll go with that. What i kind of. I thought it would go. Good with my color rush so there you go nice new hat. I actually think this is going to be barring injury. The same starting off of line for the reason. Dave said they're not gonna throw dan more in there. They're going to pull data with him. I i still do believe that. Still do believe that. All right last question here for me. Two questions situ parter who is the week one. Starting outside cornerback. Opposite joe hayden. Brian gilbertson with you james pier. I think they're moving in that direction. I think they're liking camp. Sutton more as a nickelback. So i think it's as simple as that disagree. Dave okay i'll go ahead and answer it because you question. If you're going to ask the second part i guess you you're part one okay because i'm gonna guess what the second part is too and that's how i'm gonna answer it. I'm going to say. I think that we one. It's going to be camp sutton but if we kinda go off the last question if your follow up is going to be would be the same player by the end of the season. I'm going to say no okay. I was because who's starting cornerback. Opposite joe hayden at the bye week by week okay. I'm even their oud. Which is week eight coming off. The bye week is we came weeks after the. I'm going say miami. Someone might be different engaged brian. Let's go to to now. He think if you said that. Pierre is that starting at week one is he still that guy after the bye week. I'm getting such a willie williams vibe out of james pierre right now. Where he was is that that thing is that a bad thing. When willie williams wasn't bad they they feel like when you say that i don't know it. Sometimes i felt like a bad. No gr- i think that's a great thing because look what he did in the one thousand nine hundred ninety five season. Oh you starting opposite rod woodson. A lot of people don't realize that he started the season of corner. And everybody's like who is and why is he in there and i believe he had seven interceptions that season. If i'm not mistaken he he really played well. And i just have a feeling. James pierre keeping one on the calm one pierre because i remember the filter for the marlins and all those years but james pierre was kept on the fifty three man roster last year and nobody got to see him in preseason and they did not dare put this guy on the practice squad because they knew boop snapped up. Just like that. Just like deontay. Spencer that still bugging but anyways james pierre is a guy that they looked at last year as a guy having a future on this team and i think the future is starting now james pierre. They know what they have in cam sutton they could go ahead and look at him on the corner but it seems like as practice and training camp has grown into what number eighteen number nineteen somewhere around there there. It's starting to shake out more with who they want to go with now. You're not experimenting as much. So that's why. I think it's going to be james pierre there and the guys that you're seeing now or probably the guys that they're looking at as for reals can i come in o'brien's sure if i'd gone with brian answer of jean-pierre that i would've said no it wouldn't change after the bye week but because i went with cam sudden that's what i would say yes and i'm not saying that it's his dead at. It's a problem with cam sudden as much as it might be. He might be the only guy i mean. It seems like they're trying to throw an awful lot of stuff at that slot corner right now..

"And go from there yet. Like before before through this to brian. Pardon me wonders if if they know some details on whether someone Some bigger name might be a on the trading block but more likely be cut because of a price tag. So that's something that's kind of crossed my mind especially with the what when that roster cutdown was on tuesday props steelers of writing themselves in case A certain piece broke free now. It's kind of something that that i wondered brian. What do you think this extra money is is due for. I have got three words for you. Tim freaking tibo bagel. he's versatile i mean. Come on so no brainer. Everybody has been asking for this in on for the last seventeen seasons. Bts's might have not been around for seventeen seasons. Tim tibo has not been around for seventeen season. But they've been asking for it so it's gotta go that way now actually guys really. I'm looking. I wanna be serious here. I made that. Tim tebow joke but they need to look at a veteran to extend. They've got to make sure that he's here. I'm talking bobby. Baena type contract for him. And i have it on good source. That jordan berry is looking at a ten year extension. So i would love to see that just to just to have Jeff hartman's head explode on what happens on a thursday night when it when it happened. But no i mean everything that you've been saying a. I agree with jeffrey. You're the trae turner in the offensive line is still your main question mark. The corners are in spanish. Bad shape as you think. But i really think they love what they have in james pierre i would love to see i would love to see a little more action there. I still would love to see joe. Haden get a little bit of an extension to clear their have some room. I'd love to have him at least for one more year and have that option. Maybe two more years just have them there and everybody everybody is looking in the live chat saying a bad smoke and everything tonight. Now man i. i'm. I'm straight edge but with that being said you know i mean you know if i really think that it's going to be on extensions for the guys that like the mingka's in the watson and i think there's gonna be some rainy day money there too. Yeah there always is now before we end the show. I'm gonna go around the table and get everyone to plug their stuff. Jeffrey is ernie film rooms and stuff that we should be expecting from you coming out these couple days. I'm supposed to have a film room.

Btc they talk all the time about it. Being your one stop shop. It's now become your nonstop shop you can listen to. You can listen to podcasts all day long if you want. And they could all be fresh and they can all going to be new. I'm really excited We are really growing a podcast and there were suggestions a year ago when jeff came back and we sat down and some people were sent hayward. We're doing too much as far as the podcast. Geoff ni- in dave we look said. Hey let's not just double. Let's triple it and that's what we did and people thought we were crazy and we tripled it and we went from seven shows. Now we've got like twenty five. And so i'm loving it. I'm busy. i haven't seen my family since two thousand nineteen and they miss me but But but we have it going and we have some great talent. And like i said when i say that it's unique it's unique there's a pittsburgh stamp on it i mean. Jeffrey is jeffries a yinzer. Kyle's yinzer from union town on my correct. That's right fake county. I mean i'm a johnstown. Kit and michael's canadians are so. That's that's the i don't know if you need you. Need to start taking the gins up north to the great white north. Yea he didn't say that with that being said no you check us out and look. These youtube shows are awesome. But i'm not gonna lie to you besides this pretty face.

I think someone cokie when this happens when the season starts because they'd get pumped up. But now i'm just passionate about these shows. I love the fact that we got these shows going and you. You can't hear jeffrey benedict on tuesdays on youtube. You can't hear the live mike. You can hear the stack eek. You can't hear what i think is one of the greatest shows in. Let's ride and not just because Jeff hartmann could buy and sell me. I'm just saying it's a great show. It's one of the best shows in the entire bloggers fear. It's all right. We've got the other shows we've got if you love fantasy football you've got the fantasy football fix. You've got another show that i really enjoy if you haven't checked out the half hour. Power hour steeler power half hour. I'd just this. But with chris paul and joe. That's a really good show that drops on saturdays. There's so much and then every once in a while you might find something decent and my show you know. I mean you. You might like something that i actually say so i mean i am fine being like the twentieth. Best podcast or out of fifteen here. And i know problem with that so i mean as long as you're listening it doesn't it doesn't matter but with that being said no sean man did not just get out of the beehive and you'll find out that they like to talk about the beehive. Apparently it's near latrobe. it's a It's a gentlemen's establishment. Which make sure you go see sapphire. She's one stage three right now. All right michael beck back to you.

Even that is probably the mvp of the game like also saying that would collect these points in every way we do it he'll be leading the points and every week we can choose. It can be anybody to someone who stands on guys well. How did he do that old. Like he made the best impression on us Manama we haven't talked to get is number. Forty two james pierre. Now i'll give him two points. Because i just like the why he plight. I know he gave up a few a few routes in receptions however the few times when he broken bow he also looked like a bit like hosman. He looked like he meant to be the he looked like he was a nfl plow and he was always around bo breaking up If game goes on he's getting a pick he's gonna pick like he felt. It looks really conditioned he looked really out there. So let's say number two for him. Yeah and it's hot on found famous because there's been a little high around him but like there was one Needs to games but like there is a positive first-quarter And he wasn't. He just went for the tackle he going. For the break-up he didn't put himself in front of the bowl and actually thought that was the play almost out of the whole game that way was mocking where he krugel exceptional breakup Yes for me. Look yeah. I i sort of think through that. Like it was buddy johnson for me. I just thought he showed. I thought he really showed you know. Yeah i thought he did enough for people to start getting more confident in what you do so i can understand why you wanted to pierre in there. I really can we. Yeah we should do this for the regular season ends. We should get some Wishing brought them a letter. Many chirac the winner. Whoever did send an lida we can do that. We can find their pair books. That's what would you want competition from two of the guys in on the. Hey sorry you got three points. Alex smith heading the second winky beyond six points right now number one or the one point will give away has to be mentioned is presley heaven. I think he is like like what. What are your thoughts auto monitor. What are your thoughts about autumn's e pipe pretty well. Well this is the thing like everyone's like yeah. It was mvp pay. I mean the press. Jeff talks about He's the quarterback He doesn't find fame for me because we know that he's got a big boot. We know that he was going to play well. artemis not finding fame. Because we're already aware of him. That's why wasn't on my last on still get aced against get along point yet all right augie. One point two one points says that he's always happy. Make people happy that kick that he did to the one yard line. I was honest why we watched it. I watched it and you don't even need. The gun is to to feel that it would stopped at bounced two times. It was never going to the end zone if yes if you watch where the way the spin the he literally now and then we let we lit up twenty odd runs. You can't do that but he was like third and see. That was horrible right back to us on the field day. You know we talk about Bugs bugs was like boxes helmet-to-helmet heat for roughing apostle really drop me like that. That was something that may should be above but Yeah art we'll give we'll get In the one economists Can give a special team unless they keep your feet at fifty five few go on the eeking gives them you know one of the three ones with us launch. At who do you think overall the the best playoff enough for three points to three to one but just putting the launch at now. Who do you think in audio legalized to can play the game. As well. who do you think it was The best overall bio for the steelers. We've had high smith we great One thing we wanna taste. What would we be doing this in the future for the regular season is just pointing out like with may not mattie four year the manley segel's in and then They come from mainly in the. That's the that's like the mentality so we wanna many. Brigham apply each week at the end of the show and neither share that. We thought that had that that great toughness steel mentality cards spirit mainly and i believe like if if i to give a award at this year this from my mainly world and we haven't talked about him would be kalem balaj. I think he played incredible football. I think he got first downs. He He got a touchdown. He seems to me that he really wants to be a steel on. He's the one that i didn't have outstanding game. But he got the yards. He needed to get see. I really liked. And i'm not saying this is now wide chapman. It's reminded me 'cause. I scratched his name out of destroyed. Your one that. I thought moss gilibert from manley award He was in there like anything else. And when i said earlier. About marcus allen and i said there's a player that we might be able to tight some of those snaps in schematic elements of it. It is malls killer I like what. I'm seeing from human. I envisage live the next few weeks. He's probably making the three two one if he can. He can build on what he what he proved whilst wake but yeah we need to go back. We had a. We had a super chat from snowman. Yeah we like. I didn't say it but only bringing up but puts these five dollars in the jar on which is nine and with with thankful for it. He says i love pepsi.

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

"May when they brought them in after that that rookie camp and so i read up so much about this guy and there were people that were saying. Duck who slam there are still people saying duck. Who know so. I'm not. I'm not now. Some of you did no too but we just we just have to know. We have to know who these guys are because a lot of the times. We're looking for somebody to talk about right. And we watched the draft one through seven because one. We're covering it like crazy but we need to know who these players are and then it gets the point. Where like everybody out here. That are your diehards. That are bleeding. The black and gold want to know who these guys are. Snowman says this. I do too bad because some guys might make the team now. I will say this. And i'm going to be perfectly honest with you. The guy that shannon's in love with james pierre. I did not know who he was. When i hardly. I heard his name. But i hardly knew he was because we did have a preseason last year right so that's one of the guys you're like. Whoa he made this guy made the fifty three and they're they're not going and then i'm reading that they can't they just cannot risk putting him on the practice squad and that shows that they see something that we don't know but there's people that had no clue james. Peer was the entire season until they started seeing. I remember special teams. Some one of my buddies was in. Who's forty two. That's james pierre but i. I didn't know who he was thing. Go with carlos davis. Do you know what i mean. They was talking about a defensive lineman that they were scared the put on the practice squad because he went clear. Waivers and thinking you know. I was thinking of a lot of people but i definitely wasn't thinking davis because we didn't have any preseason. We have no way of knowing that you never never. And it's like you said brian and shannon. You know there's so many of these guys they're gonna they're gonna wanna see because they're going to have to depend on them. Like bugs in davis and louder especially davis louder. They didn't have a preseason lash earth. Davis didn't have a preseason last year but but we didn't see him last year in preseason like you know how are they going to do you. Know if they're if they're factored into the rotation on the line with With hayward intuit and and a lulu so one of those guys is probably going to factor and heavily in that rotation so how. How are they going to respond or they're going to Be are they going to. You know what. I'm trying to say are are they going to dominate the pre. The guys that are third and fourth stringers in preseason. That's what i. That's what i'm hoping to see. You hope so. Yeah so gentlemen. Let's do this. Let's go ahead and take a break and we will be back right after this with the guys we need to see shine and the guys that are already shining. Now if you're on facebook if you're on youtube all you've gotta do is stick around watch stretch for about five seconds and be right back. If you're checking us out on wednesday or thursday you're riding long your car and you're one of our diehards on the audio only side we love you. Thank you so much for doing that as well. Just do us a favor so easy to switch on over to number two. It's pretty much a click and that's it nothing to pay for. It's simple as that do that and we'll talk.

"I would read a bunch of his film. Melvin anger is just an edge. Rusher he lines up the interior sometimes on passing down. They've used him as an off all linebacker and he's even had an interception in doing that so that's nothing you'd ask him to do. Like every player twenty snaps the game. But you could rotate him in there and help out in that position he could be part of the answer. And all of that's going to be determined over the next couple of weeks of camp Leading into the hall of fame. Game i think. Then that's when the then we'll see the steelers. Okay who's out there who needs to make a move you know what other team what are other teams desperate for we saw cam acres. He's he's out for the season with achilles injury. People were speckling osceola. Should send betty smell to the rams. There might be a deal like that. In in a whole bunch of other position there might be a team. That's like hey we'll give you such set for jane's washington because our receivers that went down. Those are all things that can play on. That's one thing that i've learned to my time covering and following it studying the steelers don't commit to something or commit to and i did. This is definitely the thing because there's way too many possibilities out there kevin colbert. He keeps all doors open so that he can make the move that he wants to make the pets better organization. All right we got. We got a superstar here. Real quick chris. How do you feel about our defensive backs at this point. Especially at cornerback. I i think steelers. They got a really good situation going on here. A lotta people are sleeping on. 'cause they lost even nelson. They lost mike hilton But this is a. This is a team. I'm higher on joe haden than most people are like. Oh he's gonna fall off that cliff. Joe hayden is not a guy that ever relied on his speed even when he was at his youngest at his best in the league he was a guy that was all about positioning technique. Handwork footwork. Being the smarter guy on the field and winning those battles he still that player. When i see that happen then i'll i'll i'll check it opposite. Okay he's done. But i don't see that happening anytime soon. Four joe joe haden. I actually think he's going to be a guy that can be relied upon Moving moving moving forward. I also see karen sudden. He's a guy that i've been really ecstatic about over the over the past Over the ever since he was a rookie in fact in his rookie season in that same bengals game we. We're talking about a. He took over. Joe haden for a half and had to cover. Aj green and look just fine doing it over the years. He's found ways to make himself valuable. I think he's going to be solid now. One thing that. I keep reminding people about the slot quarterback what about my killed and he did so much i agree. Mike hiltons a favorite people to talk to in the locker room because he was very open. He talked about a lot of technique yet great instincts. He understands football he's a very high q. Are very high. Iq when it comes to football and life things but With mike don't forget he was an undrafted free agent free agent limit when they brought him in. You know he was a guy that they came in and in camp earned his mainstay. That's what they're expecting to come out of Brown a traynor with a james. Pierre was some of those guys are gonna have to step up this year. I wouldn't be surprised one or two of them. Do and don't forget justin lane still out there fighting for his for his nfl career. So there's gonna be a couple of guys to step up there. And i think what makes this a lot better is knowing that you have a makeup fitzpatrick behind you. Terrell edmonds very solid strong safety despite what many people might say but minkah fitzpatrick when you have the best in football columnist shots playing the deep ball back there you as a cornerback. Feel much more comfortable being aggressive playing your role and making plays. I think this is a lot better than people. Get credit for if i can follow up on that You brought up. James pierre and i state that that I know there is a james pierre hype train running pretty seriously around pittsburgh right now i actually after the after the playoff loss i had to do a film on that game and i was like i don't even know what to write about and i ended up writing an article about james pierre as one of the few bright spots that occurred in that game and since one of the things i've been thinking about is he had so few snaps and the season but when you go through and look at each snap. His film is really good like he did a great job in the limited time he played. I'm used to short sample size being like okay. This person put up good numbers good stats in a short sample size. What how do you deal with analyzing a player who was put up really good film in a short sample size. Does that does that translate. Is that going to say. Hey this guy should be this good next year or are there. Are there things that we have to be cautious about when looking at his film and saying wow this did. This kid is smart. He's a good player. I mean you should always be cautious when looking at a small sample size. If he that peyton hillis will be the greatest running back of all time if you remember him from his browns days. That was quickly short-lived But i will say this jean-pierre the things that i saw about him. Good technique was solid following through on basic cornerback fundamentals In those things that that that chat transition into your future and if he can build on that that solid. I can tell you. I watched this man play in. Minicamp granted no pads football in shorts but he was active the hype that you're hearing about it. I was like i chris. Carter was given a thumbs up behind that hype now my colleague. Tony sereno when. We're on the lockdown steelers. Podcast e believes in the james pierre hype train. He's at the official starter of that. He started months ago and he continues to believe that he's going to be the next rod woodson with the running joke there but i do. I do think that he's going to be a better contributor. That people give him credit for This year what's gonna be. Interesting is a when he comes to camp. How consistent is he does. He maintain how he looked at minicamp. Be when he does get in. The game does he. Stick to those fundamentals as you communicate. Well is he on the same page with everyone else immensely. Does he get lost in the sauce when he starts to get more saps. If you see that all those things start to check the boxes he could end up being like you know what when. Joe hayden's done camp sutton might be the number one and he might be the number two and we have no problem with that and that could be the next you know big story of the steelers like hey guys that ford their way forward like vince williams that you didn't you didn't think that they were gonna be a star on your team are consistent starter for you. Know a better part of a decade. That's what he can work his way into. But we have a long before we go there. I liked the fundamentals i see. I like the understanding of the game. That i see..

"Like that can become the starting number two corner. He went code number two corner. They even exists anymore with so much so much looking for some packages But but if he if he could be that second starting corner then. I think that that's even better for a player. Like cam sutton. Who can slide into the slot and plus. He's he's really versatile we can play obviously corner and he played a little bit of safety too so i think that would bode well for them if he if he if he can make that leap in the second year if they can develop 'cause you know a player that just left here Mike helton he was an undrafted free agent and he came out of nowhere and and became one of the best slot corners in the league. So they can do the same thing with james pierre and he does that at the On the outside. I think that that would be because you need to develop guys like that. You can't every every Player you develop can be premium pick you have to hit on. Somebody's undrafted free agents. That's what the the key to that in the steelers really good at it is recognized. That guys fit their system. E and pierre run like a four six and in may delay. That's gonna drop down as a fourth fifth round you know rejection. Hey runs out. Forty maybe. Some of his shuttle times wasn't quite as good. They're going to drop you. Najeeb might go and drafted by the steelers. Know what they're looking for and that's why they could get a guy like hilton. Who played like an underside safety. You know many linebackers you will. And they knew they wanted to utilize him in that slot position. Same thing with the air You know he might not make it on some defenses where they ask him to match up me and demand for the whole game On the outside the steelers are not going to do that. They're going to make sure that makes up coverages and You need certain of intelligence And again the confidence and was found that maj they're really good on these drafted free agent guys on off. Its of land in the secondary. Yeah even some of the linebackers Have been that route you know and like splaine or another guy you know he. He's a trainer. he's not really a buck. He's not a mac he really fits their system and they picked him up off the transplant. Arbitraging so Yeah it's always root for these guys. Yeah ause it's financially beneficial to the stores right. It's not only. Do they get a chance to have professional career and they just you know all of us still faces love him because we love the underdog and but it also just helps the salary cap. Because if you're not having to pay them you know. Say sega third fourth round draft slot. It was of a lot of money that you can use to keep your own and knife. Fair market value in keeping miranda. That's the reason there's been able to do what they've done to be so consistent part of the reasons that really give him undrafted free ages. Yeah you mentioned the line. And and neighbor trying to rebuild that line using a lot of premium picks. Obviously pouncey first rounder cash. First rounder marcus gilbert but you know before they Any of those guys have been came along. They signed ramon foster in two thousand nine out of tennessee and by two thousand eleven he was. He was a fixture on that line. You so durable and and you need. You need to develop. You can't just like you said like i said before you can't just they can't all be premium picks. You have to be able to develop these these Undrafted guys low around picks and and faucets me one of my favorite all time favorite steelers and and and and he was such a durable presence in a fixture and a team leader so waiver and big al try big of a tight end and david's van and any becomes left tackle and then made a. He's had excellent career and again god. Nobody wanted anybody could have had him. I mean they. They identified them. They develop them and of course he had the best coach possible as far as offensive. Line coaches and mike perfect storm and he. He actually got some pretty decent contracts. You know i mean left tackle. Obviously it's going to be more valuable than i left guard. He was able to the parlay that into some pro bowl years in in a decent contractor too. So yeah i mean a james fear is is that equivalent on the in the secondary one every year. Yeah and and you wonder who it is. And i'm excited about selena. I mean i. I think he's. He's someone undrafted free agent and he obviously showed a lot and running game last year But i think jeffrey benedict some other. People said to us much better in pass coverage and people people thought i mean he's he's seems like a pretty decent athlete and somebody. Maybe they could you know. Be an upgrade as far as athleticism over offense williams as much better instincts right. I mean if you watching He's a step ahead so it makes him look a little faster than maybe what he is and then he quickly transitions. Let's he's got coverage in the running backstays in the pass walk. He destroys asians immediately to the pass. Rush and And he was very effective at that last year. And so even though he's not your prototypical.

Although i don't i don't know about that anymore but do you think. Is there anything else that you would want them to address with any of these guys who destroy out there. I think this is going to canada. You wanna keep so much money right now you gotta have the sign And anna case something comes up so i think they had won a substantial signing available. And i think that's they used it for ingram and man. I pleased with that. I mean You know out is no no if we we definitely needed the edge more often And and like i said. Aww it's van it is unproven. Of course right. But i don't know who's out there. That would have necessarily come in that the gavitt you know you really looking at west westerner and they got him right. Yeah i think this was really one of the best decisions they could have made. And then we'll have to see a cut down time you know might come available But you know. That's that's a different avenue there now to me later in the training camp in of course i kind of agree. I think i agree with you. I think they're pretty much done with sign because i think there's there's more potential there at cornerback. As far as young guys that maybe could develop you know. A lot of people are excited by james. Pierre and and i'm one of you liking me. He likes him a lot. So what is it that you like the most about pierre if you had to give your scouting report on him when i started watching him. He's very short memory If he struggles early in games he seems like he really bears down Because even more tense more focused. He doesn't go into the shale so to speak right. You know some guys may they. They get barn a couple of times and they lose confidence and he's always like moves onto the next play. I don't have short term memory loss or what it is but he's always and he's very physical in the running game Willing to see a little bit of that last year he was. My you know mostly used in an obvious fast and situations but He he really comes up and plays run hard. He's physical Aggressive and and I like those two things Plus he's at least six one six one. Six two sets very good length In his the the logger arms Which uses effectively coverage In the jam guys at the line so he can play a little man he could play zone and a witch. That's our emoluments. Stores do right. And so i was excited for him because he could immediately come in and So the physicality in confidence in camp adam expect him to make the roster percent right so that was a pleasant surprise for sure. And that's that's something that you know. We'll we'll never know what they're thinking on these guys but they they might be super excited about a guy like james pair which is why they're not you know they didn't really address the cornerback position in the draft. And maybe that's why they didn't decide to go and search for a a replacement for steven nelson france. Maybe that's one of the reasons why they decided they cut him and save some money. Because they're that confident and play like pierre or perhaps justin lane. I'd say there's probably at this point more of a chance at their at their that. James pierre might be something than than lane but based on last year but then again you know it was his first extensive action you know. So he has any chance to get out there again and see if he's if he's improved at all. But yeah i i like you say there. I think he's He's more of a big physical corn. And what they have they don't they don't have a lot of guys in can if he can. If.

That's rough and i feel like decastro. Can't go stews probably try to work. Something it's the money back If you were to retire or if they were to cut them for whatever reason then they would have some flexibility to bring more talent like a turner and kind of alleviate that pain so at least there could be a possible out for this team but as we are at the top of the hour here jeffrey.

"You know i thought oh well he could play on the outside and cam sutton could slide in. And he's he's got me sold now. That sudden is great to play dime. But he's not physical enough to play nickel up in the line and blitz everything and that he thinks that as physical as james pierre plays in the limited time that he got that he someone who could bring that physicality and could actually be there. I don't. I'm not calling that. That's jeffries calling but i tell you what i'd love to see it so that's pretty interesting that you will appear and i totally totally see that. I went little bit different route because i went with one draft pick. Yeah and with a high draft pick want high draft pick. I wanna kendra green okay. I think kendrick green everything that he does is going to be talked about and the positives are going to be brought out big time because people were going to look to see if he's going to be the guy that can come in replace marquees pouncey and how soon he's gonna be ready to do that so i think he's going to be a guy that gets a lot of positive bus. Okay anything you want to do. You need to are you good. I'm okay you're okay well with that. We're part way through and we part were a bathroom show so we're going to go ahead and take our break here.

"So. Let's move to. Here's a surprise. A little bit I. Felt that five cornerbacks locked in I really did. The fact that they kept the sixth was very interesting. So the so and not only that. They kept duplicates. They kept the duplicate. And you'll get your. Just a second when they kept Joe Haden Steven Nelson. Mike Hilton Camp Sutton Justin Lane. And undrafted rookie free agent, James Pierre. Florida Atlantic why am I calling him a duplicate? I'll tell you Dave. It's because he has the same number as Anthony McFarland. Yes He's a guy who brought it didn't even give him his own number. That's the definition of a dash guys lands. Williams would say that's a dash guy. But you don't even get a number. You know you get the same numbers a fourth round pick that you know that the steelers are going to keep no matter what you've got to really do something to make this roster and he did. Like you said, he's a six to corner. He brings a little bit something different than the other guys. He's a bigger. He's a bigger corner. Not going to be shocked if he's The steelers have this every every year they have a guy that is just inactive all the time. This is what I see. In James Pierre, keep him develop them. You don't even have to have an active on Game Day unless you deal with injury and there's your guy steeler fans. You're probably still get anything from them because they're no preseason and you're probably not gonna get to see much from him. For a while for the season, but the steelers saw enough of them to make sure that they kept him around what he's a Brian. Twelve. Here. Here's what I'm going to tell you about him. Do you remember in baseball I? Think they still have this in baseball a rule five draft. The rule, five players that you have them on the roster or you can they're going to be picked up if they're not on the forty man roster, the twenty five man roster if there were role five pickup if you don't keep them, they're gone and you lose them so I'm looking at. James Pierre Jimmy looking at Jimmy P as this guy that. They cannot afford to put on the practice squad because there is because of his size, there's been some hype about them that they need to put him on the active roster or he will get snapped up. Yes I think they noticed that right away. So it's so much safer to keep this guy. Because you don't to lose your wanted to develop them. So when you're talking about never starting am not giving them a hat. In developing this guy, he's basically going to be a practice squad player. On the act roster that no one else can grab unpotable guy is what you would like to say we are. got. Well let's let's say this I'm GonNa say the same thing about James Pierre Right now as I said a year ago about Justin Lane the best thing that can happen to James Pierre in two thousand twenty is for him to not play defense who snap. You know because, and that's best for the steelers for him just like Justin Lane last year let them develop I'm sure lane. I'm assuming lanes ahead of them on the depth chart mainly because like I said before lane is your gun on special teams. So He's GonNa get Helmet on Game Day. Now if someone goes down and they need someone who knows if the air is because we don't know based because of the preseason, we don't know how lanes developed as a quarterback. Pierre actually does while we hear the practice reports so. Because he was getting some hype, the steelers kept him and that's good. You don't have to worry about them. You ready to roll safety. Do you have anything to say about corner? As far as corner goes I, Y the lack of love for Justin Lane and you just talked about it. that. He would great on special teams last year in the. Depth Chart Everyb- debt I'm sorry. Depth chart but. What everybody's saying here. I'm seeing a lot while Pierre outplayed lane. We don't know that. We just. With all the cameras we had at practice and all the preseason games we got to see you know we can't make those judgments, but really can't and just like what you and jeff were saying a couple of weeks back on the preview with all the hype four wiser a lot of hype for Chase Claiborne Alex Smith, are they trying to pull the swerve I mean and I said this earlier in the show you can't talk about ninety some guys. You know you really can't. Now the media can when they're seeing them, but they're not seeing. So we don't know the inner workings I really think Justin Lane, one of those guys that's going to be making that giant leap. That leap in twenty twenty. But we don't WANNA see much don't WanNa. See much of them that would just really want to see these. That's that's fine. Let's so they kept six quarterbacks they kept the extra defensive back and one less linebacker maybe. Because we have five safeties. But at least one of which has been has also been playing. It's some linebacker because they kept. The exact five safeties I predicted. Make Patrick Terro Edmonds Jordan dangerfield Marcus Allen Curtis Riley and who's missing from this list. Brian. Who is the only draft pick not to make the Rossler Rooks Junior Antoine Brooks Junior I feel that brooks junior and Alan were offering somewhat of the same thing. But Allen was more ready to step up into that linebacker role. So Brooks I mean. Some people like, oh, he's going to get clean I. I don't know why you would claim a sixth round draft pick that you didn't get to see play in the preseason. I. Don't know why teams have want to do that and put them on your fifty three man roster 'cause to get claimed that's what they have to be. You can't claim a guy put him on your practice squad he's got. To be on your roster. So I think I think Brooks is going to be on the practice squad I might be wrong. I could eat some crow if I if he does get claimed but I think the steelers realized, they would rather lose him than any of these over guys. You Got Marcus Allen who has apparently made some really big strides and he's also someone who can fill in at linebacker perhaps. Then, you've got Curtis Riley? WHO technically play safety in corner he's played both in the NFL. Before when he started an entire year, New York was at safety where last year he when he was listed as a corner but he was more of a special teams guy. Jordan dangerfield some people like like I know Dale completely left him off of everything that he spoke about it all in his projection I feel like maybe just forgot about him. I knew Jordan Dangerfield is GonNa make this team because he's the only one of the core for specialties guys that I said this before that was left from last year I think he's your special teams captain. So. What do you think? Safety's Brian. I believe in the entire thing. I'm telling you right now that I really believe that what is going to happen here. Is that these are the guys that we expect it Yeah Yeah I mean I this wasn't my sued. Surprises we've already talked about the surprises we started off with the offense we talked about the surprises. Wide Receiver we talked about the surprises on the fence of line. This is just fill out the roster and like we say. I'M NOT GONNA. Ask this question anything else about the safety because I'm going to ask you some other questions, but we gotta make sure we hit our specialists. What I'm a I'm really comfortable too safe. These I really they loved Curtis Riley the fans loved Curtis Riley. They I mean I knew they were gonNA keep keep him the. It's really the hybrid position that he could play both corner and safety so i. I expected him to stick and I really think that he was another guy that would've been tough to keep on. Keep on on I. WAS GONNA say the supplemental list I was GonNa say that but keep him on the practice squad Yes oh. Real real quick just to be thorough special teams. Nothing changed from last season Chris Boswell camera candidate Jordan Berry now. The report was when he was released that the punter. corless weightman does say that right Waldman Walkman weightman.
