"Their home opener this past sunday. Ceiling their eighty ninth straight season without going undefeated only five. Nfl franchises have a longer streak of losing at least one game. Yes that is me telling you to settle down and find some perspective after disappointing steelers loss. It is after all along season at this point. The steelers could still win the super bowl or they could lose sixteen games. There's lot more of this story to right but that doesn't mean there isn't anything to talk about today. We're gonna talk about what went wrong. Against the the las vegas raiders from the steelers defense to the run game to ben rothlisberger. I'm your host jeffrey benedict. Welcome to the cutting room floor. We're start with what we saw this weekend. And before we dig in too much. I just wanna say that. Now it's time for a little braggadocio. While i wave my arms like ralph macho My keys to this game heading into week. Two i gave an x factor for the raiders. I was with marquis de on the steelers. Touch down on die in that show. I called henry runs the third as being a potential game changing player. Because with the steelers paying attention to darren waller rudd's was that guy that could break a huge play and break open what i expected to be a largely. A close scored defensive battle. Well yeah that kind of happened. That kind of happened with the steelers. Don't have a ton of speed in the secondary. Terrell edmonds is their fastest defensive back so if you get isolation on the outside and i believe the play Rugs broke for sixty. One yard touchdown. He he was on a callow. Witherspoon was on him again. I predicted that before. I knew joe haden was going to be out for the game But they got they got. Henry runs the third on. Are number four defensive back which really really. He's our number six. We're just missing are one of our top guys and we were sat james. We sat justin lane. Sorry lots his name for a second. We justin lane forever and boom sixty. One yard touchdown. That really broke that game open. So i kinda caught that one. Not that i'm happy about that One of my other main keys to this game was the steelers winning the interior line battle. i made that my kids game. 'cause watching the the ravens raiders games. What stood out to me. Is that while. Derek carr was getting pressured around the edge quite a bit second half of the game. He starts being able to step up into a clean pocket. And when derek carr can step up into a clean pocket. He's a really good quarterback when you put people in his face is not nearly as good so car against the steelers. One of my things was we. Gotta we gotta keep guys in his face. We can't step up into the pockets. So that the pressure from the edges can get to him well. Tj wise was absolutely crushing. When he was in this game he was playing phenomenal. He was doing a fantastic job. And for those snaps the longest pass. Play with watt on the field with seventeen yards and there wasn't a single deep attacked a deep throw attempt by derek carr with tj lot on the field through the point tj. By got injured. There was not a single deep pass through by car. Tj what left the field the very first play after tj Left the field with his injury was a twenty five yard. Pass to second tied foster moreau. And when worse from there by the end of the game derek carr had thrown eight deep passes connected on five of them for one hundred sixty four yards and a touchdown the reason he was able to do. That is because with tj white gone and simply cam hayward in there being the only real big time threat. The raiders were able to give. Derek carr a clean pocket and he was able to look downfield. See what was happening and make take take shots. Take good shots. Downfield step into his throws make throws without being hit. They won the game. The moral of that story is even with steph onto it out. Even with bud duprey gone end. Advertisement is a good player. But we've seen. He's he's struggling this season. A bit with this step up responsibility and the step up in in attention. The he's gotten he's not getting socks he doesn't even have a. Qb hit yet this season. But even with him there with tj with steph onto it out tj white and cameron. Heyward are a lot to deal with. And what hayward and supporting staff of chris warmly. Alex highsmith marlin ingram. Melvin ingram is playing really well but he's not tj. Why he's not cameron heyward. He's not on their level. Hayward watt and supporting staff is a lot to deal with just cam hayward and supporting staff wasn't not too much for a banged up raiders. Offensive line they were able to shift the pocket to count for hayward Hayward's penetration and really the offensive line. Just had to steer cameron heyward to one side of the pocket and let derrick walk. Go the other way. Well when cameron heyward can say okay You know i'm gonna rush. I'm going to penetrate. And i'm going to go to the right side from the defensive perspective. I'm gonna rush to the right side of the pocket and cause havoc. There will have tj one on the left. You can't just be like okay. I'll take a step to the left. No you're taking a step towards teach what you're taking a step towards getting lit up. You're taking a step towards a fumble. You know you are taking a step towards a big defensive play. You can't do it with just hayward gable step outside. That was a huge problem for the ravens. That's big reason. The ravens lost is they were not able to contain derek. Carr they were. They were not able to crash his pocket. They were not able to put people around his legs bodies around his legs people in his face hands on you know threatening to swat the football away. They weren't able to do that. And the raiders came back on with car. Throwing deep downfield the steelers. Despite the success they had defending. Darren waller like i said before. They're one of the best at defending tight ends in the national football league the last three seasons since they Drafted devin bush brought in Tara lawson and brought in a mega fitzpatrick. They've been one of the best they did again. That was different. But it didn't matter because in the end when they could not disrupt derek cars pocket derek carr was able to throw downfield for five of eight for one hundred sixty four yards and a touchdown. You're not gonna win a game when you give that up to the opposing quarterback and you're offenses in scoring. Yeah that's a shootout. If you're giving up deep passes like that. That's a shootout as over twenty yards per attempt on deep balls. You don't even know what the steelers putting up on. Those numbers was it was awful talking about darren. Waller i put this clip up on twitter. Cassivi s rise. It came back from the half. I was watching. It was just like yes. Oh my goodness thank you cbs. 'cause i don't have all twenty two film yet which is awful and stupid But cbs puts out the alternative film and they show how. The steelers are bracketing. Darren waller putting a on him with a safety back behind him..

"One. It was high smith member with a groin. He was was he limited on wednesday. He went limitless all list on thursday and then full participant friday and then the even lifted is questionable tag on saturday so that tells me that maybe there is an opportunity for iran to practice on friday and even if he's limited he'll probably be labeled as questionable and it might be a game time decision. Friday is going to be a big day for sure. I want to ask you also about witherspoon kella witherspoon. He did not get a helmet. We assume if you're gonna make a trade like it's talked about trade shows show you're going to make a trade for player. My gosh give him a helmet on game day right. I mean he. He's had a week. Dave how do you see him using if at all well. He doesn't know that he's goes above. And beyond as a special teams guy. I think that was part of the reason why he was on the trading block in the first place because if he wasn't going to be a starter they felt like they needed more special teams stuff in seattle. That was a rumor. I don't know for sure if it was true Because i mean he has some special team snaps to us career. That might be part of it. It just i mean it's not like he was joe haden. You know what. I'm saying that you pick up late and you could throw in there. It's not like he's fitzpatrick a guy that that's that's a all pro player that you're throwing it was a guy that the that doesn't mean that he can't do a great job for the steelers but not everybody can do that the same way so i would say if he's not ready to do what the steelers wanna do where it's where communication and everything else is the key on this dominant defense. If he's not ready then don't play until he's ready. That's all i would say what you. Brian meeting witherspoon. We've seen this in the past with a few players last year. We saw with a guy that came in on halloween. And that was avery williamson. We saw it believe it or not we saw it with. We saw it less. Joe haden like dave mentioned. He was the one who was able to come in and adjust quickly. But we've seen these adjustments with vance mcdonald with ryan switzer of were seeing it now. A little bit of a an adjustment which job as well. So i can understand not give up when i saw his name on the fifty three but not getting a hat on sunday. I wasn't surprised at all. And the reason i wasn't surprise was just for a lot of what dave said with the special teams thing but also with just the fact that gosh. He showed up on a he showed up a after the preseason game after the last preseason game with not a lot of time to adapt in get in there. So i you know. I'm thinking that You'll probably start seeing him be mixed in more. But if you're looking for an immediate return from a guy like kello witherspoon you're not gonna get it. Dave not add something. I would ask you guys a question short if he's active this week. Whose helmet does he take. Justin lane is adjusted lane. I mean they have united air arizona outside. He played thirteen snaps. But just i didn't think about malebo on a bad one brian. What do you think. I would say justin lane because molet showed up and was there and Did he do anything. Amazing know what he was around the ball he was a complete non-factor with justin l'ennemi lane have special teams stamps safe he.

"But I will tell you this. If Greg Russo looks like he did in training camp and preseason, I don't want them rotated Greg Russo on the field as much as possible sale. I look at the other side Pittsburgh We were talking a little bit about the game plan. We saw Dallas run on Thursday night, where they decided to basically go after the only weakness. I think if you look at Tampa Bay's defense, then Sean Murphy bunting getting injured, they challenge their depth right away at corner. I said this, Jeremy. I know Joe Hayden. He is on the last 18 19 games of his career. There's not a ton left in the tank for Joe Haden. Who is behind him like they got rid of Steven Nelson. They got rid of their other Mike Hilton, like they don't have at least my knowledge, a group of corners that I believe can keep up with this group of bills receivers, especially if they're going to be rotating them in and out there going to be fresh throughout this game and the different packages that Brian Tables give me right if they get for receiver sets out there today. That. I mean, that is advantage bills all day. So would you like me to tell you who's listed on their depth chart behind us? This would be this would be an enlightening experience for me, and I think many listeners and viewers on stream yard Okay, so they have Justin Lane cornerback. Do you know much about Justin Lane? No, I know that that sounds like a name. That's real, all right, And they also have on the opposite side. James Pierre like these are the backups to starter Cameron Sutton and starter Joe Hayden. All right, um, in the secondary, look, make a Fitzpatrick is awesome. All pro natural Adams. Obviously we know who he is, but you know who's behind them at safety, A rookie a rookie named Let me get his first name here. Make sure Trey Norwood trainer was a rookie safety. So They? They have some questions some questions at depth in the secondary and I agree with you. I don't think Joe Haden is quite the level of player he was when he was going to Pro Bowls. He's is he lost that team. Supposing, number one is that well? Well, the heat Their defensive, according to Butler was asked about that this week and he said, I'm not going to tell you what we're going to do, but we will have a plan for Stefan Diggs. They better. I mean, not many teams didn't Yeah, no, That's the thing they did have plans first founded the next wouldn't work out. 80305 50. You can join us. You give us a call and hop on with us at any point here. 1 88 5 52 5 50 have another comment at the Facebook feed. Sell about the run game for the bills. You know, we talk about the Steelers Najee Harris. The Bills run game is Devin Singletary going to showcase? What's different about his body is what everyone has said is different about people. People have a lot to say about the changes he made. And he talked about, you know, in the off season having goals, the team asked him to do some things as trainer. They're watching this film all this like, will we see Singletary? Get off a little bit with that today. I like to point out Brian Devil's schemes up very favorable looks for Singletary and has his entire career so I know the looks Are there at the lion has to do its part, and then from there, it's on the backs. It's something that I think it's not a weakness of the team. It's a place they could Get a little bit more of an edge more from the backs. The Singletary lead the way with that this year. I think initially he does. You know last night we all do these these radio spots around the country. I'm on Sirius NFL radio late last night, And they specifically asked for a fantasy purpose. Question. The same question. Fantasy purposes, Devin Singletary see the guy. My answer to them was the same thing. I'm going to say everybody right now, which is I think Devin Singletary is the lead back. So to speak. Now, I think there's separation. I think Zack Moss lack of availability..

"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.

"So i i think he can make a spot from ulysses gilbert third and then kind of Sacred joseph linebacker. Justin lane is also someone that a probably on the cutting block but the steelers don't have very many corners at all So that's another name. I could see i. I feel if they're going to release the corner though they're going to be bringing corner in So if someone's gonna to end up off this team. I think they look at that kind of inside. Linebacker spot and yuji threes just showed me nothing in honesty. Kinda shocked to begin with that. He made a team the first place so i think that's probably where they look to try to trim some fat to get karl joseph in line up all right there you have it. Mr sorry coach. Mr captain blue checkmark michael back. Hey good luck this weekend heading down. The lord knows where. Where are you going again. We're playing in moscow idaho. So you idaho vandal. Well good luck. Let us know how it goes next friday. And thanks for joining us mike. We appreciate it. My pleasure always thanks. You all right pittsburgh steelers fans wanna think michael beck has always for stopping by a. He's a busy guy. He's coaching them. Up there is college olma monitor. He's coaching them up. I don't know how they're going to do down there. And what did he say moscow. I've was he going to russia anyways. Let's finish up with the heart here. I want fans to prepare themselves. Prepare yourself prepare yourself for the season. This is the final weekend that we will have without. Steelers football slash. Nfl football until january actually february. Gosh that's exciting but anyways prepare yourself for this season and understand this. It's not always going to be easy for the steelers team. This steelers team especially the offensive. Line is young. And it might. There might be some serious bumps in the road. Do not go into twenty twenty one expecting twenty twenty results. And i'm not talking about the way it finished i'm talking about the eleven knows start. Don't expect that you're just going to set yourself up for failure going into the season knowing that this steelers team is brimming with potential in. You know. I hate that word you know. I hate pretend that that is. The most dangerous weren't all sports if he asked me as a player coach but nonetheless they are brimming with talent at every if they can get together it might be ugly at times in. They might struggle and they're going to lose games folks. They're going to lose games and you will. You won't hear me predict him to lose much. Just that's just the fan in me but nonetheless prepare yourself for a season that might be up and down but maybe it differs at the end. Think back to go five. Two thousand and five. There were a lot of bumps on that road in no one myself included. Thought they had a shot at actually winning it all in and got hot at the right time. Same in two thousand nine against the toughest schedule in the league. Boy did they just step up and play big and big moments and that was a team that two thousand and one thousand nine. That offensive line was awful as well. So just keep this in the back of your mind folks. It's not going to be easy. This season is not going to be a cakewalk. This season is going to be rough. You have to you have to bunker down you gotta anchor yourself and say i'm gonna stay steadfast behind this team. I'm going to support him no matter what we're gonna continue to fight the good fight and that is rooting this steelers team on to victory every single week. Gotta prepare yourself so get yourself mentally right now and then next week when we're kicking things up ready for buffalo. You're ready no matter what happens. All right folks. that does it for me. I hope you have a great weekend. I have some really cool plans coming up. I'm going to share those with you on monday. I this is a personal story. Because i don't wanna ruin the surprise but for my family. I'm really excited. I am really excited. I'll tell you better on monday. Have a great weekend and as always finish it out here be safe. Be kind in. God bless we'll see you monday. Happy labored everyone. Goes dealers.

"Steelers fans welcome back to the second segment of. Let's ride this wednesday show. I'm your host jeff. Hartmann senior editor of behind the steel curtain dot com in it's wednesday that means mailbag time in. This is when i get to answer questions. From my writer. Dai crew over the off season. I did do this live. I'd just was not that crazy. If i let me put it this way. I was kind of not upset. I was surprised. Then my or die crew didn't want to talk more but had a great time talking with the people that did show up. I'm just probably not gonna have time to do that during the season. Maybe we'll dusted off in the off season again. We'll get there. But in the meantime wednesdays are going to be pretty traditional in terms of on tuesdays if you follow me on twitter at j hartman h. t. underscore pi it. I'll put out a tweet. Hey got any questions. Then you fire away. Here's one from west hitchcock longtime listener. And he's followed us on youtube and things like that for a long time he says. Do you think devon bush's twitter activity has soured The steelers Soured him on the steelers and has anything to do with acquiring joe. Show over okay. Wes europe normally a pretty logical guy so first and foremost. I don't think that the steelers are soured with the twitter activity. Devon bush at all i mean they might have said hey devon. We don't need this in our life right now so please knock it off in. I wouldn't be shocked if they actually did that. But i don't think the acquisition of joe schubert has anything to do with devon bush's off season crazy twitter activity. I mean at all. Think about last season. What were we all saying. When bush got hurt toward tears aco where would we all saying man the steelers death at inside. Linebacker stinks boy. We wish we had a veteran someone. That's athletic someone they can cover guests who you just described. You just described joe schubert. So i'm not upset about the pick. And i don't think this is a cut on devon bush. Everyone wants to draw conclusions. And i don't know why. If joe chauve in devon bush play alongside one another and they look good in their dynamic and their sideline to sideline players and they really flowed well together. What in the heck are we talking about. Let's wait and see. Don't jump to conclusions. That's argon say okay. Let's go to the question next question. Sport says what does big press have to do to kick barry off the throne well first and then eases hashtag rider dike route. Thank you very much pittsburgh bud. Big press in berries on the fact that berry is on the throne is disgusting anyways but diverted big press. What does he have to do. I think he just has to be consistent if he can be consistent with the big cakes the hang time good holding if he can do all those things. I don't think he has to do. That's all he has to do. Let me put it that way. He doesn't have to do anything special if he can down them at the two yard line all the time that's great but the one thing that presley harvard has to prove is just that he can do time and time again that he is consistent. That's the one thing that jordan berry cannot in has not done in his time with the steelers in the national football league is shown that he can be consistent if presley harvey can do that the fact that he was a drafted player should tell you a lot. They can save money by having him on the team compared to Jordan berry so. I would think that would be a logical pick for them if he can just be consistent. Brian haynes says who was the surprise. Cut from from tuesday for you hashtag. Thank you brian. He has a few questions here. I gotta be honest. I was surprised. They kicks the kicker sam sloman was released. It was just one of those things where i thought they were going to loud. Chris boswell to kind of rest a little bit more. You didn't want him let member last season he was. He was constantly dealing with that hip and leg injury. And that was what matt matthew right had to be called in a couple of times to kick. I felt that they were going to keep slowing around at least another week. That's my surprise. So there you go mendez ass bunch of names. I guess who the steelers going to sign. I don't know if they're going to sign anyone. And he's referring to probably the fact that they restructured stefan to its contract. They freed up more salary cap. Space what are they going to do with it. So i mean you can listen to the live mike with deputy editor michael beck on tuesday morning and he gave you a whole slew of names from taylor decker. This stephon gilmore from new england quarterback the former defensive player of the year in. That's all great. We can all have that conversation. I don't think they're going to make a move anytime soon. They're gonna wait. They're gonna wait. They're already looking at the players that were released and once they see the name that they like. Don't be shocked if bring someone in. There's another round of cuts next week. So went from ninety two eighty five. Next week it goes to eighty five eighty in the week after that has do from eighty to fifty three so the steelers are gonna be watching every step of the way they probably have a list of players and positions that they're targeting but i just don't see them making big move anytime soon. Jake campbell says mark gilbert over your guy jay. Lane thoughts j campbell. It's a good question. He's talking about justin lane in mark. Yogurt mark gilbert. I felt his Has had a great camp. He's played well in the preseason games. Justin lane those a third round pick. I think if moore gilbert has shot is down the practice squad justin lane unless he gets at interception. He had an interception in practice the other day. Those are good things he's making plays. I'm not saying i'm a huge fan. But he's making plays and that's what he has to do. I think like. I said mark gilbert gotta hope for the practice squad and then justin lanes probably going to start on the fifty three man. Roster brian haynes s again what are your what are the most important things for the steelers to do in the next two weeks hashtag ride. I grew the the most important things for the steelers to do in the next two weeks. Number one is stay healthy. I mean chase klay. Pools will scare a my goodness. That's not enough to kind of get you. Holy cow Yeah it's one of those situations so stay healthy number two in the next two weeks gotta figure you gotta get your offensive line. Some semblance of cohesiveness. We'll put it that way and defensively. You just gotta get the rust off. You gotta get players like mingka out there. you're gonna have to get ben rothlisberger out there on offense. You gotta get cam hayward out there. Joe haden he got enough to knock the rostov rust off before we won when you go up to buffalo haskins. Qb to says. Hey jeff two questions here if you don't mind number one do you think it's time for the steelers to start giving the wide receiver a second contract because we have some studies right now. The only here..

"Our podcast wherever you get podcast. All you do search dealers around the steel curtain. That's apple podcasts. I tunes google play. Stitcher anchor pandora. Spotify does not matter find as follows. Subscribe you won't regret it there. You go all right. let's go. Everyone loves my winners and losers. I don't know why it's maybe it's because people are. Can you kind of get a good grasp of who did well. And who didn't do well. And i understand that understand this. This is just my list. Okay so if i'm saying something you might say. I totally disagree with you jeff. That guy should have been a loser or should be a winner in. That's okay. it's okay to disagree but this is my list. These are my winners and losers not yours. but let's go over. Let's start with the winners. And i'm recording this early in the morning on friday morning After the game just do the work having recorded late. I really don't like these thursday games. I'm glad this is the last one but here. We are talking about the winners from the twenty four to sixteen victory in the first on. My list is pretty pretty easy. I wanna dwayne haskins twain haskins. Listen to this stat line. Sixteen for twenty to one hundred and sixty one yard. Seven point three average one touchdown no interceptions with a rating of one zero eight point. Three now you be saying sixteen to twenty two one sixty one. It's a ridiculous stat line. He played maybe the tail end of the first quarter the whole second the third and then even into the fourth based on the fact that the steelers had the ball at the end of the third and they wanna let him finish the drive that drive ended up stalling out But he got the steelers in the red zone. They were moving the ball. Well he was finishing drives only one drive that he ran into the red zone. Finished with a field goal. Another touchdown and i tried to explain this in. It's tough it's tough to put into words but if you're someone who watches the steelers you actually watch the games. I mean pre-seasons different not every games on tv if you get sunday ticket from direct tv you're not guaranteed to get every game. If you're able to watch this game you would see. The dwayne haskins just looks comfortable and again. I can't really put into words. I'll do my best. But i can't really put it into words. Exactly what i mean. Dwayne haskins just looks like he is comfortable and mad candidates offense. You can call him captain. Check down whatever you want. He made the throws that he should have made. And he had a misfire early in the game. I think it was second quarter. And i said on twitter that he threw a ball and he scrambled his left rolled out. And he's mobile enough. He's not a running quarterback but he's mobile enough. He gets outside the tackle box. He has a throw against his body. It's difficult throw to make. I understand that. I wasn't the the direction of the throw. The receiver opened by by. Gosh he threw it ninety nine miles an hour when all you had to do is just lob over the linebacker get a first down and move the chains. It almost pass. Everything settled down everything. Slowdown looked good. Making the right reads. He was able to get the defense to jump off. Sides in the free play was his lone touchdown pass. Dwayne haskins looks good. I would love to see it. I'm not calling it. I don't think it's going to happen. I'd love to see on saturday in the steelers. Third preseason game against the detroit lions by the way. Mike tomlin said the ben rothlisberger is going to play. That shouldn't shock anyone. It's the third preseason games what they've always done with ben so they're always going to do with ben ben going to play a little bit and i would love to see dwayne haskins come in next not so much that it's a cut on mason rudolph but more so let's see what haskins can do right actor rothlisberger done. I would assume that they're going to keep the offensive line together for a little bit longer. I wanna see what he can do and keep some of those receivers in there. Let's see him. Throwing passes to deontay. Johnson juju smith schuster. And maybe some others. Not just eric brown being one not just the second tier players. I wanna see it. We'll see if it happens next. I can't believe it people that. Listen to my podcast all last season. You're probably thinking. Jeff is so tired right now because it's so late he's delirious. Why in the world. He put on his list winterless. That's right justin lane or as we call them here on the my right eye call. Crew calls him lust. Jane because he that all stems from last season. I i said something about him blowing an assignment and he came after me on twitter Justin lane he finished. The two tackles one solo. One pass defense in an interception. But i'll put this simply when i was reading an article for the website. I wrote five defensive players to watch and i included justin lane and a lot of people might have read the article and said why in the world. But i want to watch this guy. He hasn't played well. He's a third round draft. Pick the steelers if they can turn this guy into something boys at a swing and a miss artie burns swinging minutes. But it's a swing amiss and so for justin lane. I'm sitting here. I'm like if he's just make play man. Just make a play. I don't i don't care for him after what he did on twitter but at the same time. I want to see him succeed. Because he's done equate to the steelers succeeding in he. Did he made a play. You can say that the interception was because jamir jones or the pressure on the court. I don't care we've seen so many defensive acts drop interceptions in the past. I was just happy. Made the place of justin lane makes my winters list another one. I'm gonna put them together. I feel like. I have to put them together. And that would be dan moore junior and kevin dots and now these players did not play with the starters. They were with the second team but man these two guys together. They were road graders. They were mauling. The eagles second-string defensive line and third string didn't matter who they put out there that left side because remember daimler. Juniors left tackle. Kevin datsuns left guard when they were in there together. They could've ran down the lower than the left side of the field. Every single time and it would have been there. It would have been opened. They were gonna make holes and they would have busted off five three to five yards per clip. It would have been a beautiful thing to watch. I get why they didn't but boy were they. Impressive in for kevin johnson. This guy has been drug through the mud his name and no fault of his own. Mind you it comes back to bogus. Reports people that are taking reports and twisting them into their own narratives. Mike tomlin's words being taken the wrong way and kevin dotson did what he should have done..

"By dave and brian. Anthony davis we just talked about the offense. If you missed it go back and check it out whether it's part one at the beginning of this show. Now we're talking about the defense and there's a lot to talk about here. Lots diagnosed with lots of unpack. We'll put it that way. Let's talk about the steelers pass. Defense i as i'm looking at the philadelphia will sorry. They're their quarterbacks. Joe flacco thanks to a really long screen pass finishes ten for seventeen one. Seventy eight and a touchdown this. He was sacked once. It was always always good to see flacco on his baco. Jalen hurts finishes three for seven fifty. Four in nick mullins one for five with two interceptions. he had more completions full yours. He had more completions to the steelers than the eagles. What do you think about. The steelers would say defensive pass defense and the steelers were able to create some turnovers. They get after. The quarterback had two sacks. Six quarterback hits brian. We'll start with you. You know what i thought. It was a pretty good effort all along. You know we're mike. Tomlin said something very poignant in in the press conference and about the defensive play and he said hey. We're just looking at note cards out there. We're just throwing them out there to see what they can do. We're not looking at defensive scheme right now and so i. We kind of hinted on that last week when we were talking about the inside linebackers and all the passes up the middle so it just seemed like this was an area where the steelers were. You could say yes. They were struggling. But now i thought they came up with some place. We had my guy with a great name. Lafayette pits with an interception. And your boy. Lust in. Jane added interception to. If i'm going ahead of myself. I do apologize. But it's it's just one of those things that the defense came to play in. These guys are looking through their fighting for their spots at. Everybody seems to be doing it. David you think about the steelers pass. Defense steelers pass defense. That was just a bad play. Just i mean come on. The ball caught behind her. Ethylene scrimmage and you run it for seventy nine yards. That's that's not as much pass defense as that. is you know. Tackle the catch defense which was really bad on that. One play one. Is it about the philadelphia eagles where you could say. Oh the team did really really well if you take this one play away. That's exactly what happened last year with the run game because they gave up the ones huge run and that was it. And that's kind of what happened here. The past defense. I thought overall jeffrey benedict's really laid it out. Miss latching on. He put it in the live chat tonight. If you weren't paying attention that the steelers right now in the passing game are not doing any favors for their inside linebackers. They're putting them in very difficult spots because they're not doing anything to complex with their defense. And therefore they're getting a little bit exposed devin bush on the one play early he stumbled. You could see that he stumbled. I don't think it was that he was questioning his knee. Or anything like that you stumble. But until that. Long seventy on your touchdown pass to only donor receivers and made catches. We're tight ends. It was the tight end. We're getting into everything a whole lot more. But the past defense in all other than a few miscues i was happy with and i mean the steelers only had two sacks but the past russia were promoted. We'll we'll talk about that separately won't we. What's that the past rush. We'll talk about that. Yeah we'll talk about that. I said no that's fine. Let's go ahead and talk about some of the secondary players my boy lust and And if you don't hawaii call justin lane lust and jane. You gotta go back to last season in his interaction with me on twitter. And that's neither here or there. But the steelers defensive secondary had a good job. They did a good job. Obviously with two interceptions I'm looking here Pass defenses three Did a good job. So one of them. I know he yes. He did in half a sack good for him. So let's talk about the the secondary though There are some names. I was hoping to hear that. I didn't Didn't hear much about james fear every now and then was hoping to see something from sugar brown even in garbage time. Nothing brian. What's your thought on the secondary. I also wanted to see mark gilbert. And i didn't he didn't seem to show up as well without the second. Yeah i just didn't see much from. But i will say that. I thought that james pierre had had nice coverage in the first half a couple times when they did show him so i. I don't think he didn't do anything completely flashy but he was there and he he got it done now. The one guy that i was kind of. If i could say one player that i was not as impressed with that. I really we really need to be impressed with number. Twenty cam sutton. If if it's maybe it's just not a good dave's agreeing with me. totally your i just. I just really thought that he was subpar tonight in. That's a big concern. Able to think about the secondary. Yeah kim sudden he was a really fast guy was going against and he was with him until the ball was the air and then he got separation on them. I don't think it was completed though of one..

"Steelers fans. What's going on. This is jeff. Harbin senior editor behind the steel curtain dot com with you for another episode of the steelers training camp recap. They have four days in the steelers are about to have a day off but it is a situation where it's time that we go over. What happened on sunday. In regards to the pittsburgh steelers when they are they were at the. Up rooney's sports complex on the south side of pittsburgh. When they returned to practice on tuesday they will be at heinz field. There will be any fans in attendance until wednesday but the pads will be coming on when they report to heinz field and dad should be exciting for everyone that's going to be an attendance So far so good and from the injury front there have been some injuries of noble. Talk about that right off the bat. The steelers are really struggling center. Basically the fact that jaycee has now or did not practice on sunday. He was seen wearing a knee. Brace walking around they said or. I'm sorry that mike tomlin said that he is listed his day to day. Also zach banner. Who's coming off of an acl tear in week. One of last season he has not been dressing. The last few days tomlin hinted that could change once the pads come on Kendrick green who missed last practice on saturday with a personal reason was back so was. Bj fitting antoine brooks junior left practice early but was described as having nothing major so the worst of injuries to deal with in. That's part of camp is part of game as long as you don't have those season ending. Acl's or achilles ruptures. Then you're good for the most part now the the one rookie in it's kind of surprising. When you think about the rookie class you would think you would be hearing a lot about nause harris. I'm sure we will hear more about him. Once they put pads on. I typically when running back shine. Not when they're in shorts and but really we haven't heard from harris today. You hear a lot about pad fryer mus- second round. Pick out of penn state. Marco volley of the athletic says quote steelers. Rookie tight end. Pat firm. youth has been really good all summer including the past four days of camp. He's passed that test but it'd be going big one awaits next week when the pads come on and what mr kabbalah is talking about is his blocking ability fryer muse can run routes. He can catch the football. That's not a problem. He's very athletic. But blocking kenny due to the nfl level we will see also another reporter said that one of the standout place. Today pat farm youth ran a fade into the back of the endzone made impressive toe tapping grab when asked about his impressions of fryer. Me's mike tomlin says he's been impressed in farm. Youth has been readily prepared each day. So good news so far from the second round. Pick out of penn state terra lawson was. The he's the defensive backs coach in a senior assistant for the defensive staff. Vivas of coaching staff. He was asked about ben rothlisberger deep passing and he said quote. Oh he's still got an arm so that's good news when it comes to ben rothlisberger czar. Speaking of the secondary austin said that he wants to keep cam sudden at the outside cornerback position for now and see how the slot position pans out with brooks and arthur molet. He didn't rule out a significant jump. By someone like james pierre. Justin lane changing those plans and putting sudden inside so he's not ruling that out but as of right now it sounds like cam sutton is at least gonna start on the outside of that defensive secondary trae turner was also in front of the microphone today the first time the media got a chance to talk to the newly acquired guard and he spoke glowingly about how he likes the aggressive nature of the offensive line heading into twenty twenty one Talked about adrian klemm at canada. Good news so far on that front. But he also talked about david decastro. When asked about replacing to castro. He said quote. I just look at it like it's a new era a different time different places. Everything has an expiration date at some point quote. Decastro is a great player. And i wouldn't necessarily say. I'm replacing him. I'm just the new right guard and quote so a lot of respect from turner decastro as he takes over that right guard position. Speaking of respect he gave a ton of respect to one former steeler. That's about to get inducted into the hall of fame allen janika who he called quote a living legend and turner hopes his fellow. Lsu tiger will come and see him play he said quote. I have nothing but a ton of respect for mr flannigan admire his game. Been knowing about him. Since i got. Lsu in two thousand eleven. Hopefully i can make him proud and quote so pretty cool to see the lsu tiger connection between new guard trae turner and informer guard allen. Fanta Other news really was that There's been some new wrinkles. Put into the offense of guess. You could say the playbook. They're utilizing so far in camp. Derek watt at full-back a lot more brook prior. Espn was cited. That her favorite player. Today was ben rothlisberger hit. Derrick watt a fullback wheel route. They don't often use the full back in the passing game but nat canada will feature fullbacks more often. That was something that broke. Prior asked mike tomlin. He said to be determined. So like i said that kind of wraps up the first ramp up part of training camp there were no pads no hitting no contact they did team drills but there was nothing that was physical and hitting. That's going to happen in the upcoming week. They have monday off so there will not be any training camp recap on monday. I will be back for this on tuesday. But i have to tell you. Be sure to check out my. Let's ride podcasts. Every monday wednesday. Friday as well as all of our morning. Podcast that includes a live. Mic with michael beck on tuesday the stat geek with dave scofield on thursday all afternoon content. We're talking about the hangover on monday. This cobra show on tuesday. The curtain call on wednesday the preview on thursday. A six pack with tony. On friday the touchdown under saturday.

"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..

"Let's ride podcast every monday wednesday friday but also all of our other morning shows like the live mike staticky can all of rpm shows that are also simulcast on facebook live in on youtube. All right. let's get right into things. Everyone is excited. I can tell that steeler nation is starting to kind of wake up again as my writer die crew on twitter. I put out the tweet. And i said okay mailbag time. He wants to have some questions. And to my. Gosh there's a lot. Everyone wants to talk about. Melvin ingram and rightfully so in case. You didn't see monday. The steelers were reportedly signing. Melvin ingram on tuesday. That became official. They release two players. They also brought in a tackle formerly of the indianapolis colts instead of bolstering their lineup. A little bit melvin. Ingram is a player that a lot of people are curious about and they asked the question which is how do you think he fits. And the first thing. I want to make sure it's very clear. This is not in any way. Shape or form. Melvin ingram being placed on the steelers roster is not in any way shape or form a demotion for alex highsmith. Not at all just like last season. When alex smith was drafted it was not dude as a demotion for bud to free. This is not a case of you know when the steelers strategies misused during yet sammie coats and martinez frying kind of going back and forth about twitter was not the case. It's not the case now. Either alex highsmith's going into his second year in the national football league in no way shape performance anymore gonna say he's a veteran he's an entrenched starter. He is going to be learning. As the season progresses everyone with a brain in between their ears should know this. And it's it's going to be smart that it is smart that the steelers go went out in found valuable leadership and experience at a position of need. The pittsburgh steelers the two positions. I think most would agree with us. The two positions especially on the defensive side of the football that are glaring when it comes to so thin in the in the depths department. It's outside linebacker and then quarterback but it's different quarterback you have depth is just unproven death in other words. You have occur brown undrafted rookie. You have james beard. We don't know a ton about him based on the fact that he hasn't played that much and then you have some other players justin lane. Even they have depth. But it's unproven death on on the outside linebacker depth chart. That's a different story altogether on the outside linebacker depth chart you have nothing. The coverage is pretty bare. You have obviously t. J. watt alex smith. You had cassius. Marsh in quincy rochet six draft pick from temple slash miami the u. That's it that was it. It wasn't even a potential thing. Yeah quincy rochet. You're like okay. Maybe he got was sixth round draft. Pick for a reason. He's a six round draft. Pick if anyone thought that he was worth more or worthy of a higher slot they would have drafted him. They didn't six round draft pick into the dealer. Said we need to make a move. They released dave decastro. They free up cap space. And you bring in a player who i again. I'm not claiming to be an expert. Here but melvin. Ingram from all accounts that i've read and people that i trust is that he could be the perfect number three tass rusher for the steelers. Let me give you a couple of reasons. Why number one. This is something that i like. How hot is that. He can play both sides. He is not a player that has to always rush from the right or always rushing the left he can play those sides. That is huge. Checkmark number one. Another thing is that melvin. Ingram is experience employs. This guy he's not thinking about someone. Like cassius marsh or you think about ola finian pass. Where did they struggle. They struggled in setting the edge. They just weren't big enough. They just aren't strong enough. That's not melvin ingram. This guy can play the run. He can set the edge.

"I i might never live it down. And that's one of our regulars. If i can find it. It's felicia ballard. Today's her big day. So have your big birthday birthday. Yeah yeah that rosenhaus engage gauge. Even though she did enjoying it it's a joy to share it with my crew. Cre- dared a daredevil. John snowman bradshaw tony shannon heavier and the btc family so happy birthday. I'm good at remembering birthday. July nineteenth. i'll never forget. When's your birthday in august night. I tried you said that last week. And i for governor act. Yeah i remember forever but yes sir you go him sing the heavy burden i song and i'm gonna listen to low happy birthday to you. I thought i can do my throat. My spirit you would normally be much right. Yeah yeah. I'm sure to taking brian spot and that i can't ruin my pipes. You may brian. Anthony davis that guy. Yeah let me times. Is that mentioned we we we gotta quarter here. I think i think we're up to four. We have eleven more to go. Okay okay. I have written down somewhere like i said that bad signal up in the sky having happy birthday to felicia every birthday all right before we continue with our other other topics i actually do you think. Do you think is there anything else you think. They should address. As far i mean there are there are question marks cornerback and maybe even you know still at the line. 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.

"It's a last thing. He said that the media before they cut minute. Mandatory mini camp. Was the last thing i told my team was show up in shape. The worst case scenario there's players that don't listen to him. Don't show up in shape and we've all seen how this fan base this media the covers the team. They would just jump on that like flies on you know what and i just don't want it to happen so hopefully everyone comes into shape. I in good condition. And that's gonna help them with as minor injuries and bumps and bruises and things like that all right. Go ahead brian. What's your next one. All right let's go back to best case scenario and what. We're what i'm going to look at here. Is that somebody emerges from the from the defensive backfield that you were not expecting to. Do you have someone in mind. Yeah everybody wants james pierre but i'm looking more at a justin lane. I'm not predicted about lusting lost. Eljay i'm looking at. I'm you know what we put. We definitely put a lot of labels on these players before they get before they get to year three. And we've already label eljay here or j. l. or whatever you wanna call them but in everybody is really on the. I wanna call them one pierre because of the baseball player but james peer everybody's on jean-pierre bandwagon and it would be great if he comes up and people were expecting people. It's now wouldn't it be great to know he's going to. Everyone expects it and that could go. That can go in another direction but you need somebody to step up at corner and if somebody else now there's other guys there you've got you've got the undrafted free agents or brown. You have mark gilbert. I mean best case scenario would be if this guy gets over his injury problems and shines but somebody had corner needs to be there to kind of to kind of soften the blow of steven nelson being gone. Let me say my boy lust in justin lane and if you listen to my Let's ride podcast from last season. You know exactly what. I'm talking about him why we call him that. If you don't ask in the live chat if watching live in no explain it to you But for me. I hope he plays well. This is a third round draft. Pick that they spend on. This quarterback for michigan state steven nelson is gone in. This is perfect. The doors wide open for him to step up and say you know what i can take the outside. This is what i'm supposed to be doing. let me take. This is his third year in the league. This is the time that you would think. He stepped into that role. Now they did kampot. No one knows how they're going to utilize him but he's gonna be an every single outside You know every down outside cornerback player if he's gonna flex around that you're hearing are there. I hope he plays well. I really do. I really do dave's or anything. usa now. Brian you guys took a job with that. All right. what's your next Best-case scenario my best case scenario. Is that this team. Plays this season with five. Numbers burned into their skull that they don't forget and that is one one zero two one. Don't forget that date and what happened on that date. And what took your season and how all that and everything that went down and got in such a hole. You couldn't overcome it or maybe you could. If you weren't living in your fears. But i'm not going there in other words that should be your driving force is because that's all everyone right now is taking off. That's all the entire narrative about the two thousand twenty one. Pittsburgh steelers is based on their last time. They stepped on a football field and rightfully so because of what you saw the everything that they did before. That and i mean especially the first half of the season we know how all kind of fell apart but all that seems to be forgotten that that you know the was major problems maybe not just one thing or two that went in the wrong direction. This team and these players and this franchise. They believe that they were really close. Even when some of those other things were falling apart that it that it wasn't major issues. It was minor things the couple too many minor things that added up. And if you fix those minor things than there's no stopping them they need to remember that and that's what should carry them. Not just in the start of the season. But you need to remember that next january when you're playing week seventeen and eighteen and hopefully beyond a good one brian. Anything to add to that. No i like that completely. Yeah absolutely. I'll tell you what. This is a good time for a break. When we come off the break. I'm going to give a best case scenario Fund one surrounding one. mr devon. bush says you're listening to the audio side. Please head over to part two. If you're watching live on. Facebook or youtube stay tuned. we're not going anywhere. Stays stay right here. We'll be right back after this break support.

"I guess it's time for a break from me. As it's called shannon champion gets the maret. Okay let's look. I'm just joking. I could care less cleveland. Browns denzel ward and they're listing the rookie. Greg newsom out of northwestern number one. Pick the baltimore ravens. Marcus peters and moreland humphrey and the steelers were going to go with. Of course mr haden. Joe haden and on the other side. We're taking a look at. I guess it's see. Our lads is listed justin lane. And i'm not quite agree with that. It could be peer. It could be cam sutton. But they're listening listing. Camp sutton is a nickelback. You go ahead and put them anywhere you want. You guys know the steelers. Better than our lads. I will tell you that right now. but go ahead shannon. I believe you're. I thought it was tony this time. Okay tony. it's it's your right. This one's easy. I it's gotta be martin humphrey and not marcus. Peters two studs. they're just just ask jude. You about humphry. And of course marcus peters. Just if he wasn't such a problematic person every now and then. I mean you'd probably have so much. I mean more respect around the league. But he's the town's obvious he's the first class wang peters the name for him but but i he's good good and they're the two best i mean he might hear from guys like greedy williams when auto when all said and done in. I hope that some how some way justin lane and james beard put themselves in the mix before That that'd be so much better for the steelers but right now it's gotta be humphry and peter's okay steeler nation for when to sing ramsey's greater than humphrey ramsey's i guess You've mentioned humphry is one of the best in the nfl. Sure but for this exercise we're looking at the north of shannon go ahead. Are you going double purple here. No humphries is my fake is. He's the best in the division. And then i would go ward And i i love hayden. He's the consummate professional I've just been so faithful from the moment he comes. We needed a cornerback. So bad and he. He's so he's everything you wanna store corner. But he's just got a little bit eight joining but he's still playing at a high level but as far as the two best I'll take humphries award because word is the head case the pages can be. That's that's not a bad call there. I'm probably i sided with you before shannon cash. It is hard for me to go against tony on this one though. I i really wanna go award. But peter's in humphrey. I think there they've got to lock down there and that's that just makes them dangerous. I wanted so bad to say hayden. I wanted to say it. I could because it doesn't matter but now i've got to be objective here and let's go ahead with those two guys. Let's i'm going with the ravens quarter corners but i'm not discounting yours in That's your pick so we're cool safeties. Let's let's do it this way. We're gonna break these down in new strong safety and free safety. Let's go ahead with strong safety. First for the bengals. We're gonna go vaughn bell i think Ginger remembers him from last year. Then let's go to cleveland. John johnson the third a huge free agent addition for them as we go. Jj three for baltimore. Let's go ahead and pull up the ravens here. chuck clark. My gosh things are some players. Strong safety is. We're not kidding with strong safety. Are we guys. And let's go ahead and look at We're looking strong safety. Terrell edmonds for the steelers. Go ahead. gentlemen. I'll let you start and i tell you what i am going to let you guys go ahead and take this as i take a quick break in. I be right back in. If you wanna go ahead and take strong safety. We'll be right back. Go take european. I'm a big fan of Edmonds is everybody nice and and his value to the team is is it. manse underrated for sure spade delivers up for a lot of mistakes. Especially when bush went out last year his fade really helped the defense stay. You know near the top. But i probably have to say clark is the best in a starve citing the division agree with you there. I was hoping that we could mix and match. I think debates is such a good good player. Like you said before you had fifteen cents last year for the bengals. But it's hard to. It's hard to put him in front of the other guy that we're gonna talk button to pet but yeah with chuck clark in edmonds and i have to go check clark. I think he's better amu- agree. It ain't no way in slab but not better. Yeah so you went chuck clark. Who did you go with. We both which are clark both a. Wow i think i mean i cannot argue with that i was not going with terrell edmonds guys. I'm going against you hear one bells. Pretty good but cleveland's got it here with john johnson. The third i. I really think that he is going to really turn some heads here. So that's my vote. So i'll tell you the los angeles rams right. That's right. yeah he was really good. So let's look at free safety. You've mentioned yet debates third. We've got grant delpit. Who didn't really play last year for cleveland. We've got the. Sean elliott who. I'm not that familiar with and we've got some guy in pittsburgh named manta legis para down. We're basically saying jesse bay and make a fitzpatrick boom those two guys right..

"We're not having day. Scofield on dade scofield's miss more than these been on the last month. I don't know what he's doing. I when moonlighting at the beehive as a c. Dancing he could. He's got the black g string. Oh my gosh okay. You know if. I've vice for inspiration. That's his whore. Why can't we use it. They've if i'm if i sports inspiration you right before the break us sparse inspiration in the you talked about your time at rothlisberger. We challenge each other as far as a god. Let's talk about preseason quarterback usage now. I think we can both agree. That mason rudolph is going to see. Let's let's talk about the hall of fame game. How you for a quarter you play mason for a quarter. Yeah you know what i actually think. Mason rudolph is probably going to get some preferential treatment. And they i feel like they know what they have in mason rudolph. He is going to get some time but for me. I think that they're gonna pay a lot of attention. Dwayne haskins in this preseason. So if i'm going to just if we're going to go ahead and rank the wraps in an actual games. I would probably say i would probably at this point. Go haskins the most followed by rudolf. Then dobbs in the ben. Okay so i wanna go a week. One let's go back to the original question. He didn't answer debates roughly a quarter. Oh yeah yeah. He plays a quarter in. You think who comes in next benz. Not playing if ben does not even. He's not even dressed. He's in street clothes. so mason. rudolph plays a quarter who comes in the second quarter. I'm actually going to say that the second quarter will be dobbs. Okay because because there's a pecking order you. They look. They're gonna look at tenure here too and it's going to be respect thing and that's something that they do but then haskins will probably play close to a half in the second half so you're saying dobbs get second quarter haskins get second half yes now. Here's where it gets interesting. Let's week to whether then plays or not doesn't matter we know as going to be the first one in does tomlin do what he did. When it was dobbs versus rudolph for the backup. That is switching. So you said dobbs was up after regarding week one week do do you think tomlin would go with haskins in then rudolph sorry dobbs. I'm confusing myself right. Absolutely think that. Okay i'm excited for this preseason. I can't believe i'm saying that. This is going to be fun. And i i have so much fun during the preseason because because of this job that we have here we who everybody is on this roster because there are so many times in may i remember. Let's go back to two thousand. Nineteen you and i en- dave. We were all over to czar skipper and duck. Hodges we knew who devlin hodges was as the minute he was signed because we even some of the right of up for sure and so we were just looking for stuff so we i still know that he went to samford. I still know all the records and everything that doug hodges did back then so it's fun to we need to be familiar with who these guys are and we're looking for certain guys in these preseason games now so i don't get bored in the fourth quarter of a game because i'm familiar with it and most people that don't know they know the stars doesn't mean that they're lesser fans. That's not what i'm saying. But most people that don't know the eighty ninth and ninetieth man on the roster and they have these unknowns coming in it doesn't mean as much but when you're when you're researching these guys and you seem come in. You're like all right. I wanna see this guy. Yeah i think also the fact that there was no please last year. And i said this a bunch i wanna see what antoine brooks junior can do. We saw him in bits and pieces. I wanna see what james fear does. Everyone's talking about him but he's played. What thirty five defensive snaps in the entire season is that enough. is that really a sample size. Everyone's i give pencil in but some people are saying. Put it in ted rate him ten. Starting cornerback come on now. Think about what you're saying. I want to see some of these players. Want us to do. And i'm going to be honest with you. Little teaser for my. Let's ride on friday. I did The surprise potential surprises and disappointments For the upcoming season in one of the disappointments was no shock. Justin lane but we haven't seen justin lane in. Just a lane has a perfect opportunity to step in and actually get some playing time. Who knows what boston's gonna do. My buddy lost in jane all right anyways. I have a question for you. Brian and this is a this is interesting. I put this on twitter rape before we went on the air and let me check the poll and you can follow me on twitter. Handle there on the screen. If you're not addressing an audio you can follow me. Add j hartman h. e. r. t. n. underscore p. I t. you can follow brian into gave his at bt se bad. So i have not hatch. You're just like those commercials or we hash tagging turn into your parents out mapquest directions every every time commercials on my kids and my wife is. That's you you need doctor. I know dr rick. I've i quit introducing myself the waitresses. I don't do that anymore. Because enshrine onto that cheesy guy funny. Oh my gosh So anyways i asked the question on twitter who to steeler fans hate the most heading into twenty twenty one. Okay so huge steeler fans hate the most heading into twenty twenty one it was the rest of the division ravens browns bengals or other. Now like i said this is literally enough for thirty s. About four hundred people voted. so far. Who would you say them before. I tell you what the tally is with. The actual poll on twitter Who would you say into coming into the season. This is not historical here. this is not all. I've always hated this team or this team history. Which no it's who do you hate the most going into this season brian. What are you have whether it's brown flush it down and eilly. I do have a policy now. My policy is. I will not mention his name. He's number six. And that's that's it numbers. Oh no i won't even now the only time. I'm to mention his name when i bring back my song. Cleveland sucks do cleveland rocks and i might change it to baker socks but i just i just cannot stand that guy the thing about the ravens and i am seeing george stacy lyn and kenneth and david and a lot of people say the ravens and i'm laughing because the only one that puts bengals on the screen is the bloke mark davidson. He.

"The static with dave scofield on thursday in all of our content. We're talking about the hangover on monday to scarborough show on tuesday. The curtain call. Wednesday thursday. The preview friday with tony on friday. Obviously saturday we have the touchdown under crew from down in australia and then sunday tales from two. Am with brian. Anthony davis which by the way as i said last week when i had mattie pedal on friday. i said. I'm going to be doing this. But every friday having a guest on in some way shape or form to talk about the steelers and maybe their role on our podcast platform. Today's guest in the second half will be none other than brian. Anthony davis it's someone you've heard a lot from but i think we're going to ask him some questions that are a little bit different Going to get a feel for what's coming up. I've been teasing the fact that we are expanding our platform so excited to talk about brian to introduce you all to some of that content. That's going to be coming your way and also just say you know about the volume. I don't want anyone to think that we're going to start pumping out twelve shows a day. That's not what it's going to consist of but we'll get to that we'll get to that in the second half. I'm really excited about this. Show this podcast is a lot of stuff to talk about in. I decided i'm gonna tease. I'm working on a bigger project that is going to take some time. Take some research. Hey the hartman house is moving again. You might be saying jeff. Didn't you just move. The answer is yes. We did just move. We sold our house. We had to move into a rental and now we're moving into our house that will be our permanent house for a long time. So we're it drowned during this time is crazy and i don't have time to sit down and research things as much as i'd like to so with that said i do have a show coming up. I might toss it over to dave scofield or have him on the show to help him use his brain power to figure it out as well but that's coming up big show. I'm really excited for that topic. It's definitely one that's going to require somewhere but today's topic is about surprises and disappointments pittsburgh. Steelers could surprise in. That could disappoint in twenty twenty one and what i did is. I broke this down into five players on each five surprises. Five disappointments gave you an honorable mention for both. But it's one of those situations where i was like. Okay what are the parameters here. What are the parameters for. These surprises and disappointments. Because every year we have players who step up they would be surprises players. That really kind of rise above and then we have players that don't step up to the challenge and those players that are more aligned disappointments and that's horrible to say but that's just reality the really the only true parameter that i had with this exercise was i decided. I'm not going to use. Rookies know rookies. I think about someone like sutton smith. The sutton smith was a sixth round draft pick from i believe northern illinois in everyone was in love with this guy. Oh my gosh what. He's going to be so good. He got hurt in training camp. He didn't even make the team so everyone would say that. The disappointment well that happens every year with bookies inside the steelers have nine drafted rookies this year. Not all nine could make the team. And if that's the case as i said you know what i'm just gonna leave rookies out. I'm only going to have players. That are currently on the roster. That are not in their first year. So what i wanna do is. I'm going to go through the disappointments first and then the surprises second as a teacher. You're taught early on in your career and if you're a teacher and you didn't know this maybe you should do this. That when you have like parent teacher conferences or talking with apparently should always finish on a positive. Leave that person. The last thing they're hearing is a positive. That's what we're gonna do. We're gonna do disappointments for surprises second. Then we'll take a quick break. We'll get brian. Anthony davis on and then. I'll have the heart-to-heart at the very end of this show. So let's go disappointments players that i think could be disappointments. We're going to start with my buddy. Everyone that's listening to my podcast for any length of time knows it's my buddy. Good old. Justin lane i he could. He could be on the other side of this. He could be surprised. I'm not going to lie. I'm not gonna pretend that that couldn't have it absolutely could happen. Justin lane could turn out to be surprise. But i have him as a disappointment. I'll tell you why justin lane his not. He's been at every workout and he did have some off field issues and that's neither here nor there but is there. Here's a going to his third year. He was a third round draft. Pick out of michigan state in when the steelers released even nelson. You think this is the perfect opportunity for him to slide in. He is an outside cornerback. That is his primary position outside. Cornerback okay but no one's talking about justin lane. No one during mandatory minicamp not as it was james pierre an undrafted player from last year. Who was speaking to reporters. That was getting all this pub- it was pumped up all of this all these nothing with justin louis. If justin lane doesn't win himself a job in some capacity this season that would be humongous disappointment and he would be just. The latest of many failed. Defensive backdraft picks for the steelers. I'm not trying to start that discussion or that debate that the steelers can trap defensive backs. No because they've done it and they've hit on a couple. Camp sutton is a perfect example. They did draft camp sutton out of tennessee so keep that in mind but justin lane is number one in terms of my overall disappointments or potential disappointments in twenty twenty one next. I'm going to go to the offense of side of the football. And i'm gonna go with a running back. That is very familiar with nad..
