"It is. it's kind of mind boggling to be honest with you For someone that has been a part of this since but debris was drafted. I took over the website shortly before that draft. Bud duprey the two thousand fifteen nfl draft. I mean we started a podcast platform but it was nothing like what we're doing right now. I it it's really great. I mean for me. I listen to all of our morning shows on my way to work. I listened to the news shows on my way home from work. I try to check the afternoon shows as much as i can. But it's just we have so much unique content that you could actually pick and choose the shows that you like that you wanna listen to. We hope you listen to them all but there's a lot of content but check it out wherever you get your podcast. Steelers are behind the curtain. Subscribe follow do whatever you have to do depending on the platform so that you don't miss a thing all right. Let let's get to the. Let's get to the meat of this. Podcast i wanted to talk about excuses. Not so much from the players but really from the fan base. There's a lot of people that are steeler apologised. I fall into that category at times. I'm not going to lie but there's a lot of people that always wanted develop some type of excuse as to why steelers may or may not be performing the way they are. My still do feel there are fans out there that for some unknown reason. They want this team to fail. They want this team to fall flat on their face for nothing more than to just be able to say. I told you so. And that's that's kind of sadistic to me. But and i definitely questioned that person's fan hood but there are people on twitter. Go to steelers twitter. My goodness you'll see people that. When if ben rothlisberger is struggling there. Happy why i told you he would stink if they just want to this person or this team to fail for whatever reason just to be able to say i told you so so there are people that are out there like that there are people out there. That are like that but the excuses. We want to talk about today. It's enough of it enough of the excuses. It's time for the steelers to prove their worth. Prove it to themselves prove it to the coaching staff. Prove it to the organization. Prove it to the fan base. It's time for the steelers to actually go out and prove something so when you're talking about injuries i mean my goodness the injuries tuesday. Mike tomlin means we all knew about the the injuries to you know. Joe haden devon bush. Tj watt deontay johnson. those aren't new injuries tyson. We knew about those. Or then. Mike tomlin gets up on it at the press conference and he starts talking about how. Ben rothlisberger has a pectoral injury left pectoral non-throwing chest injury and then also alex smith has a groin injury. What the heck is going on. And they're signing taco charlton to the steelers practice squad. I mean my goodness the injuries and there's a lot of people out there. Let's say that's the reason why the steelers are struggling. That's the reason why they lost and week too. Because of the injuries and toon extent. I believe that you listen to you. Listen to the live. Mike with michael back on tuesday morning. Or if you listen to the cutting room floor with jeffrey benedict on tuesday at noon they both talked about how if the steelers would have just had. Tj watt for four quarters. It probably could have been a different outcome. Not saying it would have been but it would've been a different outcome in terms of how the game played out especially in the second half but nonetheless. Here's the issue. Here's the difference now between going into week. Two and the week two game and now leading up to this game against the cincinnati bengals. The first and foremost is planning planning a you. Had joe haden endeavour bush pop up on the injury report on friday friday. You have to think about how this works for the football team as they prepare so when they are preparing for this. The game is on sunday. Typically on monday the rehash that game and they're already starting to put in the game plan for the next opponent in some instances. They're working on the game plan for the next opponent before the previous game. So that would mean that. The steelers were doing some homework on the cincinnati bengals before they played the las vegas raiders before anyone freaks out and messages me on twitter saying there overlooking opponents. They do this every week. And they're not the only team that does this. This is also why they have a scouting department goes and scouts. These teams and get stuff together and coaches like mad. Canada will start to take a look at personnel groupings. And things like that. Don't go overboard with the overreaction. But the they'll start on tuesday they'll put a plan together and then on wednesday they start implementing that plan in practice wednesday thursday friday practice saturday walkthrough game on sunday. When you have a plan in place and you're going wednesday thursday. Everything's great plan is in place. We're ready friday. Uh-huh two of your defensive starters are on the injury report now. An enlisted as questionable. Okay maybe we'll get him back. We have high hopes. You try to build a contingency plan. It doesn't always work out that way and then sunday rolls around. They'll be active uh-huh.

"Mike tomlin's press conference on tuesday september twenty first. Yes when i hear that date i think of earth wind and fire but anyway coach tomlin did his regularly scheduled press conference at noon right away he off by talking about what just happened the previous week with the steelers when they fell in defeat in their home. Opener to the las vegas raters. He's one of the big things. That coach tom talked about was playmaking in the second half. He said he talked to a group of players at halftime about how they needed to. Have you know the bigger plays in the second half and that is what happened. What happened is that the vegas raiders made more plays in the second half coach. Tomlin specifically mentioned the sixty one yard touchdown that was obvious To just about everyone that that's the kind of big plays that they were talking about Coach tomlin said that the steelers did not get enough splash in general he said especially on special teams like they did the week before where they got. That splash splash play. Which was the difference in the game. Although he said he was very happy with the good job at the punt team was doing. You just didn't get a big splash play From like the punt return team or things of that nature. He also addressed. You know putting tyson alalu on the i r that That was something that had been reported the day before wanted to acknowledge that as he got into the injuries Talked about t. J. watt with his groin injury and also added. Alex highsmith smith with having a groin injury which is interesting because it's not as much in addition as it is an acknowledgement that it was there in week one and probably hadn't gone away completely so that you got both watt and highsmith with the groin. You've got bush in hayden Working their way back with the groin injuries. So coach tomlin specifically address. Those he also added. Ben rothlisberger to the list with a left peck injury. That could Reduce his time in practice during the week. Which is interesting. Because ben rothlisberger doesn't usually practice on wednesday anyway but it was probably more of you know acknowledging the fact that when ben rothlisberger shows up that he's not practicing on wednesday. It's probably not going to say coach's decision. It's probably going to say Peck injury now. This isn't what coach tomlin said. This was my own inference. That that's something that we will see on the injury report tomorrow whether or not that affects rothlisberger going forward this week Coach tomlin didn't talk about the situation in depth like he was overly concerned about it but he did mention one of the thing that i'll get to after he mentioned one other name of deonte. Johnson says he looks better not great but better So not looking anything. Long-term there but don't know if we'll be able to play this week coach. Tom didn't specifically say anything about this week. But i think that was his way of saying that he looks better but not great. One thing that could shaalan talked about. And this comes back to the ben rothlisberger and all these other injuries is how in game injuries are much harder to deal with than the known injuries as you're preparing for the week i'm gonna you know kinda go off on my own little talk you for for a few seconds about that was also the issue with last week with. Joe haden devon bushes injuries coming on friday. It was the last day of the team preparing and then at the last second. They're kind of scraping together. What they're gonna do not having these guys because they got injured so late in the week so late week injuries in game injuries. Those are tough to deal with but coach tomlin talks about preparing for them. Now makes it a whole different ballgame. He went onto to highlight some things With the cincinnati. Bengals coming up. He talked about their improved defensive interior. And how they have how. They have a lot of depth there. He obviously mentioned the starting safeties. And how. And that's a really good tandem of jesse bateson von bell and the things that they're doing there on offense he talked about joe mixing and now he's the second leading rusher in the nfl right now. also talked about it improved. Run game they got their run game coordinator. I'm pretty sure it was offensive. Line coach ede mentioned the name. I can't remember what it was right now. back to them that he hadn't been there since two thousand eighteen so kind of looks at no gives them a little idea of their philosophy in the run game and he talked about Joe borough in the receivers. He specifically mentioned tyler boyd That's someone that the steelers. He said that they used to want to use to use someone like mike hilton to combat him. But now mike hilton is on the other side line. Even mentioned later on the press conference. Sean davis saw both of those players are now in cincinnati The biggest thing is this is afc north ball. You gotta get ready for afc north ball. It's just a whole different monster. From that point. They moved into the question and answer period of of the of the press conference Coach tomlin of. I'm going to highlight most of these. Some of these were multi part questions and then then he would answer either one part or one way or the other Some of the some of the questions were asking kind of the same thing but to try to give an overall feel for how it all went down. He was specifically asked if there would be any changes to the offensive line and he emphatically said no that was the second part of a two part question and he insisted on answering it. I He was also asked about if he knows exactly. When ben rothlisberger was hurt he said he did not. He's not even sure. If ben no specifically he was asked about the no huddle as Ben rothlisberger made a comment about not having it in the arsenal last week and coach tomlin said that that was last week's plan that know how to something they've done in the past and there's no reason for them to not have it but last week's plan doesn't mean that that's this week's plan He he was also give it another question about banned in the receivers being on the same page. He didn't even let the question finish. He shot that down real quick. Answer that that yeah. He's he's satisfied. With how ben in the receivers are when it comes to beat on the same page I know fans are into fans a little bit more concerned about that but coach tomlin shut that down right away. was also.

"You again. Talking about the live. Mike talking about this pittsburgh steelers next opponent that one being these cincinnati bengals on the heels of that crushing loss to the las vegas raiders. Yes i know. It's hard to find a little bit of positives right now but that's exactly what we're going to do in today's show. We always look ahead to the next opponent and figure out some positive and why the pittsburgh steelers will be victorious in cincinnati. Bengals first and foremost looking at this week's matchup. I think the most important thing to keep in mind the pittsburgh steelers should be considerably healthier this week against the bengals than what they were against. The vegas raiders. Now promos with last week's game and one of the reasons. Why were so positive is there wasn't all these factors wing against the steelers. We didn't know about these injuries until friday and they continue to leak through into saturday our sunday. Excuse me afternoon. When the steelers and raiders eventually played on the positive side here. Joe haden devon bush and even tj water all expected to be back. It kind of sounds like all three should be back in a. That's what they're used to. Playing one hundred percent of the snaps. We will of course see those status kind of go on throughout the entire week. So yes we may want to hold her breath right now. But on the surface the pittsburgh steelers will be healthier when they had into this matchup with the cincinnati bengals. The second thing that i think is extremely important here to throw is that joe borough was rattled the last time the pittsburgh steelers faced off against him in that one and only matchup before he had that horrific knee injury a year ago and on top of that. The bengals oftens of line. Wills are still there. joe borough was relentlessly. Beat up a week ago by the chicago bears. Of course pick six him. Just taking interception off. Interception of joe borough everything just doesn't seem quite right with cincinnati and until they fix their offense online. I anticipate that continuing to be the status quo. Getting tj watt back in the lineup having cam hayward of course doing what he's been able to do these first. Couple of weeks. Melvin ingram. we've seen him make a huge impact for the steelers. and of course. Alex highsmith is applied. Some pretty good pressure on his part as well. This steelers front seven should be able to recap acc in that backfield rattle joe borough once again. Continue to get him off his game during those interceptions which is something. He did quite often when he was in the lineup. Of course the steelers did fall to the bengals late last season. I can't even remember that. Quarterback's name i don't even know if he's in the league anymore but of course the steelers losing to their backup quarterback a year ago when it was a it was a tough pill swallow in the worst games. I think i've ever seen the steelers. And ben rothlisberger play but thankfully they're not in cincinnati. It is not the freezing. Cold of winter is heinz field. And they'll be able to kind of take a breath relax a bit. They have to play the game. First and foremost they have to play their game and not do what they did against the vegas raters. But everything is there for the taking. Like i mentioned this pass rush should be able to wreak a little bit of havoc in the backfield and what that should lead to is the steelers linebackers and they're secondary being able to force turnovers. Still of course have not had an interception yet on this young season. Two games in zero interceptions. Nothing for joe haden. Nothing for being fitzpatrick seemed goes cam sutton at the list. Goes on in kind of anticipate that to street coming to an end. This game we know. Of course how good the steelers defense is so smacking jober around a little. Bit shooed can lead to some of those turnovers that we really haven't seen despite how good the defense has played kind of anticipating on that level. Where the defense defensive players make some place fly around get the ball back and let the offense at play with a little bit less kind of kind of feel better field. Position is basically what i'm trying to say be able to move. The ball shorter distances. Because we know how much steelers offense has struggled. Two weeks into the year past that defensively. I think there's a quite a few things. Steelers will be able to do and continue their success against the bengals which we've seen in recent years first and foremost patterson pass pass rushers past the defensive backs being able to turn turn bad throws into turnovers. I just think the steelers match up well against the receivers and tight ends and running backs of the cincinnati bengals do. I anticipate them to be able to like mismatch them in dominate them physically. Obviously not this is the. Nfl players are all up to the same level. The same standard but for this game specifically. I just kind of like how the steelers defensive backs lineup with the bengals receivers and of course joe mixing out of the backfield bengals really. Don't have that big play tight end that you have to worry about the have three really. Good receivers and tyler boyd you. She plays pretty well. Against the steelers t higgins has never really done anything against this team Jomar chase of course kind of the new wrinkle. But he's not kind of set the world on fire by any means. I think the steelers have the manpower to slow down. This receiving core this tight end group and the guys like joe mixing. They have in the backfield. There just really. Isn't anything completely jumping off the paper. That worries me.

"Did you find the numbers. Oh yeah. I got i got him. So you wanna know how much roberts plane was. Blitzed he was he. How many times he. Let's keep here the way i keep raising it. I'm like yeah man. He was blitzed. That's not that's not. What how many times he blitzed. Okay not blitz okay. Thirty tight ties with robert liston. Twenty man he was he was like man every thirty. He was settled a four hurries. One quarterback knocked down two sacks and seven pressures so only three more than devon bush on the season. But i mean a lot more production. You know not a result and vince williams new everyone. And plus vince williams as a fantastic blitzer. So like this is what excites me about this season. Even as much as michael beckon. I talked about getting young stud inside. Linebacker play next to bush and be that like more athletic freakish. Athlete fitzwilliam style hitter Like a zaven collins fans on. We've got those guys we got guys. That are good enough right. We've got vince. Williams and roberts blaine we can lead to having bush played back splaine one of my favorite things in an interview. They asked him. What does he wanted to work on if they were going to have them work. More run support for things and he said the steelers said. Don't worry about your weaknesses. Focus on your strengths. Focus on coverage puzzling. And i was just. I was like because that's what they do. You take guys you take what they do and they do well and you put them in that situation to do it. Yup that's better after. Do get better yourself out in those areas. And that's how we're gonna use you so alongside. devin bush. Expect to see. Roberts blaine in passing downs in passing situations. If they're an. And i don't to be like roberts bylanes. The nickel linebacker in venice williams is the three is the the base seven base set inside linebacker. I don't want to go because if you're facing a team that passes a ton out of heavy sets or you're facing a team that runs a lot out of trips. You may switch that up. You may say you know what we want williams and on nickel and made against someone else like a baltimore you may say we want robbers lane in there when they do heavy sets. If they're throwing out of heavy such you. You may want that. So to me like it's more vince. Williams is gonna focus on blitzing Short zones he's going to be your run guy roberts bylanes going to be the guy in man more better in man ag better. On passing doubts. I have so many follow up questions. It's not funny. I'm gonna ask what. I what i wanted to quick answer. A yes or no. Will you see bush. Williams inspe- elaine all the field at the same time. Twenty twenty one. Yes okay you think that they could possibly do that all right. I was curious last year. They did all three. He didn't have the inside linebackers when they went. Big three outside linebackers this year. They don't have the outside linebackers they've sidelined and they have a guys to do it. Assuming they're healthy now. Speaking of being healthy you we talked about the steelers taking players and taking what they do well and putting them in that situation for them to have more success is by doing that. Which i think is is is really what you wanna do but this is the nfl and we all know that stands not for long when it comes to players in their career and stuff like that and you deal with injury like me. Coaching high school. I could do time because i base. It was rare when i when i was losing players all the time because of injury. It it it it. It's not the same speed. It's not the same physicality th these grown men out there flying at each other. That are the most you know elite athletes in the world. That are doing this. There's going to be injuries that occur if the steelers are constantly taking players and building to their strength. Does that create more of a problem when someone goes down for injury and you have someone else that has to replace them. Is that what we saw. In twenty twenty that has the as the injuries began to mount up for the steelers that things that they had been doing all season. They couldn't do the same things because they didn't have the same players with the same stretch. Absolutely absolutely and the big thing is they have plans to cover for people right. They have ways to shift people and cover for him. When you see that run dry is win. Three cornerbacks are out when you're missing or or you have both hayden and nelson out. That's not good. We don't have to backup starting our corner bush use same time. Or if you have your all three of your linebackers out they could cover for bud dupree and they said they were able to cover last year for bud dupree and devin bush both being now. That's incredible. They kept it going it was. You could argue that defense. Yeah joe haden being out his well when the playoffs is what kind of fell apart. When you had alex. Smith joe haden devon bush knew that it yeah it was just too many holes so yeah and i mean and that's going to be a problem. Whatever people to injury no matter what. But i mean that's why so many times people are like. Oh well they talked about. Oh do you josh. Last year people were like no. It was the year before two thousand and nineteen right before benn got hurt or do you want. Do you want to josh jobs as your number two quarterback because he could come in and do something different like. We saw week seventeen last year. Or do you want someone that does. You don't have to have a whole different system when a quarterback steps out for a little bit other other teams have had the same problem where you say that quarterback might not fit the backup. Because if something happens we'd like to someone that at least has similar style similar strengths. You're always going to be dealing with that. So you need to say i think inside linebacker for the steelers is if you're talking about devin bush coming back is where you have the the most gain versus the loss of any absolutely. Yeah if you're talking about him coming back and you also have to remember with outside linebacker if you're saying well you didn't have budget pre for five games the last five games. How much of a loss is he because they had. They didn't have him for for six games out of the season. But we knew what we there was enough of bud. Dupree and twenty twenty two hit more than halfway there to know what it was so We got some quarterback here before we go the corners that you think yup so steelers to move on from steven nelson..

steven nelson vince williams robert liston six games michael beckon five games nelson two sacks Last year last year devin bush Roberts blaine hayden roberts blaine vince this year Dupree Williams roberts seven pressures
