"kendra green" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Pursue advanced. Welcome back to the second avid mailbag time. That is right. I'm going to answer every single ride or die crew members questions we had over thirty in. I'm going to do my best to get this done in a timely fashion we. Several people answer. Ask several questions. I'm not gonna turn any of them down. Let's get started owen. David owen david steeler nation. He's a he's a great follower of the show. he's on the other side of the pond. Actually he gave three questions. Here's the first. How funny was it watching. The browns choke then baker lay on the floor or the ground having a toddler. Stop hashtag I did think that was pretty funny. If they if no one's put into gift for me please do tag me. I wanna save it. I'm gonna use it often. He also asks zach. Banner returns deep. Play him. I'm assuming he's asking me if i'm the coach. Do you play him at right. Tackle and more left tackle is tooks the biggest liability. That's an interesting question in i. I don't think the steelers have any idea what they're going to do. When zach banner returns they have some time to more games to be exact and that's only when he's eligible to return that does not mean he will be back in week. Four if he's ready he will but he doesn't mean that he will be ready. If banner comes back and szucs is definitely the weak spot. And i could see them. S- keeping more left tackle if they like what he's doing he has more to do. Let's pretend that his work at left tackle. Last week was great. He's a rookie. I get it okay and then last question from ellen apart from szucs. Who's the weakest link on the offense. I'm still gonna stick by my guns and say that it's the rookie center. And that's not a damning shot across the bow me not liking kendrick green or me thinking it was a bad pick. It just takes time. It takes time it takes experience. He hasn't had yet next question. Mendez can the steelers. Please throw deep balls klay pool these six times a game i think forty percent would be caught forty percents pass interference calls chase. Klay pool is the type of player. You want to kind of turn to the joe. Flacco offense in what. I mean by the joe. Flacco offense is heathen pray. We also flacco do this with torrey smith a couple other faster receivers. They would just chuck it up. It's either going to be incomplete overthrown. A catch or a pass and recurrence call. None of them are that big of a mistake. Rarely do flags deep balls. Intercepted the differences. And i said this earlier. They have to give ben rothlisberger time finally when they connected with chase klay pool. Overture davis white. You watch that play. Rothlisberger got his foot in the ground and had to get rid of it because the pass rush was getting ed. That's the issue. It's not that they're not willing to throw deep. It said do. They have the time to throw deep. That's i'm not sure yet. Brian haynes as many roster moves happening this week. I'm not sure if they happen week. The only rostrum. If i could see happening. This week is if karl-josef gets elevated from the practice squad to the active roster by don't. I'm not sure if they need to do that right now. Let him get acclimated. Let him get ready. And then maybe you bring him in. I dunno around the after the first quarter of the season. I say quarter is still sixteen games after week. Four thomas asked what do you think about signing another center and moving green kendra green to right guard. I know it's early but he might be a better guard. My first answer that thomas is. Where is there a center out there right now. That is on the street. That is ready to go. Comfortable with ben rothlisberger. That's going to be better than kendrick. Green i don't know of one and i don't think. Jc has now. Is that either eight or a trading. I still wouldn't do that either. I think at this point you ride kendrick greenie give him. The experience he needs could be better guard absolutely. He played guard more than he didn't center at illinois nonetheless. They don't need a guard. They've got dotson turner. I don't think there's a need for guard. They need kendrick green to get experience. Granta's s you lease. I guess as you listen s. Grant here we go anyways. He would love to see slash here people's response to this as us lash. We get older. Is it weirder more awkward where a player's jersey in parentheses. Another dude shirt. The last one i wore with pride was forty. Three troy palomar lou. That was ten years ago thoughts. This is something. I've actually thought about I i used to ask on game day all the time. Hey what jersey are you wearing. Send me a picture. And i'll tweet it and have people send me greg lloyd. Rod woodson drone beddis troy paulo malu. And get some random ones that were always great. Bubby brister kordell. Stewart chad brown. Like all these crazy older jersey's not the legends. Not mean joe. Green and terry bradshaw but these. I saw someone at a mike. Tom's actor as he wants and they were wearing whatever. That's fine sir progress. But someone said. I don't wear other men's jerseys and house win. That's kinda deep like if you think about that like what are you doing. Maybe these onto something. I don't know I only wear ben rothlisberger jerseys personally. I have not thought about what i'm going to do when ben rothlisberger retires whenever that is maybe i won't wear jerseys anymore. Maybe i'll just wear gear like shirts or something like that. I don't know that's a good. It's interesting topic all right from gene. With how the defense played. How do you find room for the two guys. Joseph and witherspoon to see playing time. Joseph i feel like is going to have to wait longer if he has to wait at all. I think the witherspoon will probably be active this week. They'll probably find a spot for them. You're not gonna make trade for someone in my opinion you're not gonna trade for a player. That's just going to sit on the bench in not the active on game days. I would be stunned if whether spins not activists on the at heinz field all right. Let's go to mattie peril. Ozzy steeler ninety one. Yes that's mattie pebble from the war room. Mattie petrol from the touchdown under podcast. He's is this the week we fight fire with fire in fryer. M- youth sings the raiders by being a big ben goto. I said this. On the podcast with the raiders crew. They ask me for an under the radar player. That raider fans might wanna know..

"I thought buffalo considering their buffalo. Be a little bit more humble in. No they are wow arrogant. I was surprised nonetheless. We're going to break this down with some players to watch. We're going to talk about the steelers. I and we're going to break it down offense and defense order. You don't have to have any number just players that you are looking at. And saying i want that they need a need to have a big game or keep an eye on this player. They could be. They could be a deciding factor in the outcome of the game. So in this upcoming matchup steelers bills week one on the road or parking york. Let's go offense. I will start with brian. Gimme a player that you are this guy. A linchpin needs to play. Well he got well. I'm gonna go right off the bat and say that we have to see a great performance from naci harrison this game because he is the guy that's going to change this offense if anything happens look we need all eleven. Sure but nagae. It's the running game has got to be upgraded. And it's gotta to be at superstar level. So i expect a rookie of his caliber to come up in this first game and actually do very well all right now harris. It's a good one. I like david. Obey you offensive player okay. Well there's there's several along this line of thought that i could go with. But i will pick one specifically because it's will be the center of that and i'm going to go with kendra green. Because he's he likes my line of thought that ryan center bad boy. Yes so so. I'm going with cancer. Green because it starts in the middle of moves out on both sides if the middle is weak. It's going to be kind of tough. You know you can disguise one side by going the other way when it's right in the middle it's going to be tough. But he's a rookie. He's coming in his first game. And i know that you've got damn junior out there on the on the left tackle as well. But i'm going more with green just because dip because i had to pick one so i if he could come out and be and do an adequate job in pass defense because that's where he struggled with so far the most and dealing with a bul russian someone i mean. He's undersized compared to the guys that are lining up across from him in a lot of cases. Although i haven't checked the bills roster to know if that's the case or not but if but if he can explode on the run place and hold his own in the past place that's going to really help us offensive line come together at for the steelers offense to do with what to do. Yes it for me and offense. I i always say i think it's especially in this contest it in ends of bt are benjamin todd rothlisberger. He's going to have to have a good game but more specifically something. Brian alluded to earlier in the show. That is don't turn it over. We can have that. Absolute backbreaking critical interception. You think back to last season. It was the pick six right before halftime. There was a completely different game before and after that pick rothlisberger doesn't the hope is. Both dave and brian lead to their players or positions. Doing enough that you can have more of a balanced approach. But benjamin todd rothlisberger ben rothlisberger for those. That might be new to the show That's his full name by the way He's going to have to play well. He's going to have to have an efficient game. I would love for him to be. I dunno around thirty attempts. That's it not having to throw the ball forty times forty five fifty times anything like that. Is there anyone else on offense. O'brien that you're saying key on this player this some somebody might wanna watch. Yeah i think you wanna take a good look at eric hebron in this game. That was what i was gonna say to. That's a good one bad. He is definitely a guy that they were going ben as a reporter with them. I know seven drops last year. But in your minds he had seventy seven. Because that's what the fans think about. Eric brown eric. Hebron david in the vertex..

"I'm filling in for jeff hartman. Who was on vacation this week. He's still doing a lot of stuff here it'd be. Tse with other podcasts and articles and everything else. But i'm just trying to take as much off of this plate right now while while he's spending some time with his family so you've got me again today and we have a very interesting injury report because there's good news and there's bad news. Luckily there's more good news than bad news. But we'll we'll see as we get there. You want players when they end up on the injury report to be trending in the right direction. If someone doesn't participate in practice on wednesday you're hoping that as the week goes on their participation ramps up a little bit for example. They didn't participate a wednesday. You'd like to see them at least be limited on thursday and hopefully be a fool. Go on friday to be ready to play on sunday. It's when they go in the opposite direction when it's concerning well. The steelers had two players that were on the injury report from yesterday that we're moving in the right direction. The first one is rookie center. Kendrick green he was limited in practice yesterday with a thumb injury he was a full participant today. So hopefully that means all systems are go for kendra green the other one is tyson. Allah wallow who did not practice on wednesday with an elbow injury but he was a full participant on thursday. So as i said in the article on. Tse that you know with steph onto it already on the are being down another. Starting defensive lineman would not be ideal but it looks as if there's no setbacks for everything all allah was trending in the right direction to play on sunday. The player that went in the wrong direction unfortunately is outside linebacker. Alex highsmith with a groin injury. He was limited on wednesday and now he did not practice on thursday. This is concerning the keys. Butler was asked about highsmith after practice. He said he's not really sure. He's hopeful that he can go all those things. I mean if not the other problem is with. Tj watt coming back practicing fully for the first time this season coach butler even said about you know maybe trying to keep the snaps down a little bit more than normal for for tj. But if alex is miss out then that's then you you're getting into hold other situation. Yes it's great that the steelers. Also have melvin ingram. The third. the other problem is after that it's jamir jones and that's all so that's the rotation for the steelers. If highsmith isn't able to go on sunday it'll all come down to friday. It really ultimately will come down to friday with alex smith and his participation will get. We'll get how much he participates and a game status on friday to know what maybe we could expect a steeler fans. Going into sunday's game there was no new players on the list which was a fantastic thing for the steelers. So no new injury. Same three players. That's exactly how it went now. Let's look at the buffalo bills now. I'll be honest with you. There's not a lot to look at it. It's funny because i i already saw a bills. Beat reporter share this and say how one of their one of the players is concerning. But i think he missed the little note so i better share this note with you now. The bills didn't practice on thursday. they didn't practice they. They are going off of a different schedule. I guess with all that time. In between the last preseason game in the start of the regular season they had a day off on thursday. They still were required to give an injury report. But what happens when you give it injure injury report. Would you didn't practice. It's all an estimation so for the bills. This is an estimate of what they expected on thursday. Had they practiced it was the same five players four of which they had the same status. And that is. I'm gonna try to find the right pronunciation of the name since yesterday. But i didn't. I'm gonna butchered again. The only player who was listed is still wouldn't have been able to participate is defensive. Tackle star motoo leli. I don't know if that's right or not. I'm going to go with it with a calf injury. The change was cornerback. Taryn johnson who was limited with a hand injury on wednesday. He was listed as they estimate he would have been a full participant on thursday wide receiver. Manual sanders was was listed as being limited again with a foot if they would have practiced and then the two participants were full on. Wednesday obviously would have been expected to be full on thursday and that was wide receiver isiah mckenzie with a shoulder and defensive tackle harrison phillips with a knee. So what's again this is kind of thursday's the trend today. That's what you try to find which way a player is trending as i explained with the steelers players you know. Two of them are training in the right direction. One is turning in the wrong direction friday. That's that's the day that really tells us where we're going it's did you. Were the players able to get to be able to practice to get prepared. And what is their ultimate game status. So we'll be back tomorrow with another injury report so make sure you're.

"The season and tj walk could use that as an unbelievable amount of motivation to go out wendy defensive player of the year and say. Oh yeah hey guys remember that number. We talked about before the season yet. It's more now so that can happen too so keep that in mind. Good good good question. Good point though damon or eight and blames his. Hey jeff love the show on a scale from one to ten. How concerned should steeler fans be about having to rookie starting on the offensive line this year. Well a scale from one to ten. I think when it comes and he's talking about kendra green he's talking about dan moore junior left tackle kendra green at center. If you wanna throw thrown fryer youth as well that could be potentially three if you think about an inland in line tight end. I'm going to say that the the concern levels should be little seven and a half to an eight going on. The road doesn't help playing a good team like buffalo. Doesn't help rock his crowd that plays it's going to be bumping because they haven't advances to nineteen they did have some. I think last year but you know what a packed house is like. It's going to be different. So i think there's some cause for concern but i don't think that's caused the steelers are going to lose the game but it's going to be something to watch for sure. Good question last question. Jean says will witherspoon become the starting cornerback opposite hayden in a few weeks. A cal witherspoon is. Who's referring to and mike tomlin was asked about that and he said did he adds good quality depth on the outside. I think the steelers are still searching for how they're going to utilize or defensive backs tomlin did say the camp sutton is going to move inside and play outside. I think they're gonna give witherspoon every opportunity to be that steven nelson type and then the question then becomes how are they using cam sudden otherwise. So we'll see if this plays out. Tomlin did not seem concern. Witherspoon is new to the team. Talked about joe haden. Not having a lot of time to get acclimated he thinks witherspoon will be able to do it as well. We shall see. Witherspoon has the size speed athleticism. The steeler fans love six to He's always long guns as good ball skills. He's faceting is a four four four four five forty yard if the combine this kid can play but can they put him in position to play. We'll see good questions. great questions. Actually my writer. Dai true showing out in a big way. I appreciate everything one of you for providing questions. If you want to be a part of my writer dai crew or ask questions for tuesday. I'm sorry for wednesday. Show all you follow me on twitter. That's at j. hartman. Agr underscored p. I it and i will put out that every tuesday that question. Otherwise makes you behind the curtain dot com to your one stop shop for all things pittsburgh steelers in as we always finished it out here folks be safe. Be kind and god bless on friday. I will be back talking. Predictions picks with coach. Mr captain blue. Checkmark michael back. I can't wait hope you can either here. We go baby. We'll see on friday burden on..

"Come back within a couple of weeks. So of course not having steph onto it hurts but the steelers defensive line still is one of the deepest and strongest leaking cam hayward enticed now. While we're still going to be there still going to be the starters. So i'm not too worried. Pass them the steelers coming into this game. They have a wealth of newtown. That's how they did not have in twenty twenty You think of the players. The steelers lost In this offseason like along the offensive line alejandro villanueva matt filer. Markey's pouncey david decastro yet. There was some big names that The steelers had to part with. But those guys were training on the way down steals your replace them with guys like kevin dotson who is one of those up and coming offense lineman the nfl kendra. Green is a center of the steelers. Were very high on well before the draft took place and then trae turner. The offense line is still has a ton of question marks but if we look at this entire roster as a whole the steelers really have improved their depth and did an outstanding job drafting. This team is a stronger officer than it was last year for being honest with ourselves. You look into quarterback group that's about the same. Of course the backup level players are a little bit better but ben rothlisberger is not coming off an injury. The tight ends zad pat farm youth. And eric hebron's appears to be one hundred percent not nursing an ankle injury like he was last year the receivers or another. You're older more chemistry with big ben. Still of course. Like i mentioned the o. Line scott those question marks. The defensive line is still pretty much exactly the same minus stefan too because of his injury. The edge room. Yes the steelers. Lost bud dupree. Who's coming off an acl. But alex highsmith looks like he's prime for a massive step forward and melvin ingram.

"For the steelers this year. That's a lot more than he's ever done. You need to monitor the hits. He takes you need to monitor how much he plays so for me. Backup backup running back as a key position simply for the fact. We want nause harris to be fresh at the end of the season. We don't want him to be run down and not the same runner anymore. We don't want want him with all these nagging injuries and still trying to get it out and going to say like doing something where. He's pushing himself too hard and ended the series injury. I don't want that the backup running back situation is one that makes me nervous because we need one. That's good and can take snaps away from from nausea heiress zach. Banner is an interesting one. If you wanna get into offensive line stuff now but zach. Banner is he looked really good. The one preseason game. He played a bit in and go field for those. That are listening on the podcast platform. Day scofield throws up. it's almost like someone predicted. The steelers would put these players in the on the i. r. and bring back the ones they did. Which give davis credit. He's he's typically right around here. So dave another home run for bt. Sc surprise surprise. The steelers will not enter the season with zero backup guards. You're not gonna do it. Was it was funny too. Because when they caught him. I was just like the steelers. Currently have no backup guards on the roster. They had four tackles two guards and two centers. Yeah so so is that is that banner as a loss of but we haven't. I mean we haven't had him. It's not really. Can you label someone a loss. If they haven't been there right he's played. He's played four quarters. Total sense you know week. One started of last season and one of the course was in the free season. We'll see they'll adjust ended. It may give dan moore junior a chance to actually play when a job. Dan moore junior starting off the year. There's duffy a conversation. I wanna have. These tackles but yes that dan more getting this job. I feel like there's a chance he doesn't give give it back like as well as he's performed at left tackle if he plays good. I know the steelers thing like all your rookie. That they did it last year. Frustratingly benching kevin dotson. But is there a legitimate. Shot that dan moore junior takes left. Tackle job has at least three weeks to operate in it and keeps it for the rest of the year. What do you think there's a good chance of that. I think there is a good chance of that. I know the steelers have had some issues with kevin dotson his attitude on if it's his work ethic or like his work in the film room or something like that on the field he's dominant just lineup. Mall people Whatever they had with him he had those issues. Dan moore junior. I think he has a legit shot. Especially with as much as Tacoma core for has struggled in the preseason at left tackle Where he actually was better at right tackle which is strange So zach banner. Coming back you could see is one hundred percent. Can he retake his job back. And then it'd be you know cancun For beat out. Dan moore junior could happen. But may i'm. I'm gonna look forward to that. E everyone remembers the dwayne haskins. Big drive that he had where it was the left side of the line. Basically just bulldozing everyone and and setting up incredible holes for running backs where it was dan. Moore junior kevin johnson and then at center was. Jc asked an hour. And they those three were just killing it out there so those two kendra green man. They they could be something special. Sean manhattan puts five dollars in the tip jars is more than that left. Tackle left guard. That's that's what it's going to start the year off as like that. That's what you're going to get for at least three weeks They they've been a people mover. So i wouldn't be surprised by that. In the slightest. If it extends past as three week period like jefferson. i spoke about something you want to. I don't know that. Jeffrey honestly honesty. If dan moore can take that job if he and johnson can can be as good as they were you know obviously. They were facing backups at the time. But if they can translate that to push around starters because they just push guys around they pushed the entire like defense out of the way and jalen samuels is running through holes. You could drive a truck through for ten yards before he got touched like they were legit dominating the entire game. It was ugly. It was like alabama verses. Nobody you know. It was like that. That bad if they can get good push and do well against starters in the nfl you could. You could swing a you could swing a loss into a win with that. Kinda run blocking and nausea harris at running back. He didn't have those holes yet. The preseason you never had those two together on the line there he for most of it he had you know. Rashawn coward and tacoma. Cora for dodgy hasn't run behind those two e it could be. It could be great. I am excited for it now. There's something i also want to address the live chat here. A lot of people are trying to say zach. Banner socks he's overrated. He's this he's that like honesty zach manner. When he's been healthy has been a a great run blocker. Haven't seen enough of in truly judge him in pasro but his his swing tackle this. Of course the steelers run the ball majority of the time so we did get to see your of him as a run blocker and about fifty two snaps of it as well in his in the previous season before he tours. Acl do you think it's a fair assessment of people calling banner overrated or is that Just because he hasn't been healthy well the one game he did play he played all but one snap next to stephan was new ski. Who was absolutely terrible in that game and he played one. Snap next to kevin dots and it was a pass play. And that's the play zach. Banner got hurt on like so. They played exactly one snap together. But banner is as a run blocker. He's as good as marcus. Gilbert ever was like he just is a really good run blocker. He's especially good on inside zone. Plays working off double teams and get into the second level or he is. He is great at that. He is going to make a difference. If he's healthy and playing he will be a difference in the run game and he solid enough impasse protection He's not great but he solid. So i i would be excited. Man a line of dan moore junior. Kevin dotson kendrick green trae turner and zach. Banner would be on.

"Down on offense. Let's someone tight ends and wide receivers. We're talking eric. Hebron pat farm youth in this was the position that practice tuesday really made me second. Guess myself chase claiborne. The second to last play a training camp. He goes down with an a lower body injury. He gets helped off the field by iran and ben rothlisberger and everyone's kind of freaking out. I talked about steelers twitter earlier. Steelers twitter is blowing up. Everyone's freaking out. Oh my gosh chase labels hurt. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh well. Let's go to another come to find out. All reports are currently at the time this being recorded. It's a lower ankle sprain and that's a good thing it's not a knee high ankle sprains alot. Ankle sprain chase. Klay pool might miss this saturday. He might miss next week friday but he should be good to go. I would think by the time they get ready for week. One when the games actually count so but still we're gonna stick to my guns stick to the plan if the head coach i'm saying that the tight ends and wide receivers are going to play up to one full quarter of two one full quarter. We've seen jiji's after we've seen deontay johnson's playtime get some playing time. I want them to play more. I want them to play almost a full quarter. Maybe even more if let's say the offense has the ball at the end of the first quarter. Maybe they're moving. They're putting a drive together. You're going to keep him out there. In the second quarter terms of quarterbacks i'm gonna have ben rothlisberger play two drives unless it goes completely south or sideways. I'm going to stick to that and say you get two drives in. You're done in. Why i'm going to play again next week. That's my plan. Not mike tomlin's plan. That's my plan. So i'm going to play two drives in this game and then after that. I'm actually gonna have dwayne haskins play. And i'm gonna give dwayne haskins. The rest of the first half mazen roof can get the third in dobbs can get the fourth. That's how i would play it. It's not going to happen. That way folks. I just hope just preparing you for it. They're not going to do that. They're going to have ben play probably about two drives. I think i might be right there. They'll probably bring in rudolph after that then haskins and then dobbs running backs everyone's a no nause harris. What's his workload going to be. I would say just like the wide receivers play him up to one quarter in when people hear that sometimes think boy. That's a lot of playing time. Not really not really. If you have a situation think like the second half against philadelphia pittsburgh dominated the play they dictated everything and the defense wasn't even on the ball that much they didn't even punt the ball. The steelers did not punt the ball in the second. Half so things can happen. I one is years to get some quality repetitions. Why the offensive line. That's the next category. The last one for the offense. I'm gonna play off of wind through tuesday. Tuesday was the first time in training camp that from left to right the projected. Five starters were out there. Chew chor left tackle kevin dodson and left guard kendra green center right guard trae turner and right. Tackle zach banner. That was the first time on tuesday so they are going to play about one quarter if not longer when all five or together in. I'm probably going to keep kendrick green into the second quarter and regardless. I just want him to get more repetitions. Get him more work. Get him used to making calls and things of that nature. So let's go to the defensive side on defense. The defensive line similar offense is gonna play up to a quarter cam. haywar doesn't necessarily need that tastes. Lunacy doesn't need that steph onto it probably is not going to play at all so you're gonna mix and match there but nonetheless have them play up to a quarter outside linebackers. I want them to play one. Full quarter et includes. Melvin ingram that includes quincy rochet that includes jamir jones. Alex highsmith one. Four quarter minimum inside linebackers. I want schober and bush to get significant snaps next to one another for a quarter at least a quarter. I don't care if they make mistakes. I don't care if showbiz kind of out of outta swords get them together and have them comfortable playing alongside one another data important. Okay cornerbacks now. Joe haden hasn't played yet so far. This preseason. I would have in play up to a quarter as well safety. Get minka fitzpatrick and edmunds out. There again. up to a quarter. That doesn't mean. I want them to play a guaranteed quarter but platinum. Play up to a quarter and keep in mind. I will say this again. I said before. I started this exercise. If you're sitting there standing there running doing whatever you do when you listen to my show if you're thinking jeff that's not enough. It's not enough for band. Just play two drives. It's not enough for the cornerbacks in the secondary to only play up to a quarter. Remember that in my plan. Because that's what i'm talking about here. My plan is that the starters would also play again next week. Keep data mine. Let's talk about special teams because we have to. Why because big press my goodness the punter big press presley harvard last week you know the first game the hall of fame game they said presley harvard's getting all the kicks and he did a great job in week. One against philli jordan berry. Got the first half he did a great job presley harvard in the second half and didn't get the punt so enough of that stuff. Alternate these guys for four quarters. Bury your out there dupont. Next punt goes depressing. Arvin enough of this stuff. Let's see let's go head to head kick for kick. Let's do it out and let's see who wins. That's what i want to see. In terms of place-kickers i i did have written down. I read. Britain is down earlier on my show notes that i wanted to keep the first whole first half. They released him slow and they have no the placekicker. Looks like boswell's go in the entire game. So there you have it. That's how i would deploy the starters in this game saturday night versus the detroit lions. Will they do that now. No there's no chance they'll do that. Will they tell us what they're going to do. No of course. They're not gonna tell us what they're going to do. But that's what i would do now coming up after this break. i have. it's wednesday that means. It's mailbag time. I answer the questions from my writer. Dai crew on twitter.

"kendra green" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Told you there wasn't going to be a recap podcast on sunday yet here. I am the pittsburgh. Steelers had a non padded closed practice early sunday morning and early ish before noon and there were no fans in the seats. We myself dave. Scofield had no idea what they were gonna plan in terms of what the media was or was not going to be able to do and they were giving us a fans a livestream of news. And so when we saw this. Dave and i said wow we're going to have enough for training camp tracker for my recap so here. We are on sunday with another day. Sixteen if you don't count the date of his reign doubt for the pittsburgh steelers and these training camp podcasts. So let's get right to joe shelbert. Joe show ver the recent trade acquisition by the pittsburgh steelers was there in pittsburgh for the very first time and he was not wasting any time in the steelers. Weren't wasting any time getting him involved. And what i mean by that is they had him out there. Starting immediately when the team got into seven shots. It was schober out there. With the starters in the second-string we'll talk about that a little bit later but that's not really the point here. The point here is that a lot of people are really wondering what showbiz role is going to be within the defense. Is this somehow. Damning of devon. Bush is devon bush. Not physically ready. Is he still working his way back. We don't know. Are they going to limit his snaps early in the season. We're talking about devon bush. We don't know but the one thing is for sure. After the practice the steelers media got to ask schober some questions. They made him available and schober told reporters this is per prior. Espn news dealers inside linebacker. Joe sherbert says the plan is for him to play dime. Backer and mac backer also where the green dot and call the place. Where the defense. Now this is something wanted to go back and check. But i'm pretty sure that was devon bush's role in the past now in case you don't know two players on the defense can have the green dot on their helmet however only one can be on the field at a time so that makes things very interesting then also after practice trail edmonds said that schober was calling plays already at the first practice. So that's really intriguing to me the fact that schober on day one that he's in pittsburgh is already out there calling plays but again it leaves a question. It makes you wonder how is schober going to impact evan bush. If this is a situation where the steelers say look at the beginning of the season. We're really going to try to scale back to bush. we're going to have him on a snap. Count so to speak. Then it makes sense. It makes perfect sense if they say that schober is the guy that's going to be playing next to devin bush. The nella mia devon bush is not going to have the the green dot on his helmet. That will go to someone else. Maybe someone like mega fitzpatrick who never leaves the field or someone of that like. I'm not sure what they're going to do. However it just leaves a lot of questions in not a lot of answers. We'll get those answers eventually but as of right now it's just a lot of questions let's get started with the rest of the news and notes from sunday's practice seven shots as they always. Do they put the ball. The two yard line seven plays see who wins the defense when seven shots. But it's a little bit more competitive. They had dominated seven shots last two practices but they went for two. Three rothlisberger started zero over to then hit. He had deontay johnson short to score on his third rep. Then dwayne hassans came in Went to for two touchdowns rico bussey both times so the steelers offense scored. Three times was defense that prevails for the three. It seems like whenever there's a scuffle reported steelers training camp. Whenever there's a scuffle you can expect big. Dan more to be involved any was again on sunday. There's another scrap during live drills in yet. Dan moore was right in the thick of it. He's got that edge. He's got the the aggressiveness that adrian klemm preaches for his players along the offensive line. That's for sure he's turning people's heads. I'll tell you that right now. Watch out for dan moore junior. Not saying he's going to start the season but he might be making waves and might be in the lineup. Before you know it zach. Banner was back a practice in. This was actually good. To see the offense of line everyone except for kendra green was there was where they expected to be so in other words. Chew chor fort left. Tackle kevin dotson was running with the starters again at left guard they had. Jc has an hour center with kendrick green. Not at practice again right guard. You had trae turner who had had the day off on saturday in anzac banners back. But that's not what this is about. Zach banner is that canada. Put zach banner in motion during a plate at. This is eufaula. Jeffrey benedict's film room work. He did an entire film room on the offense and folk a whole series on the offense in focus talking about matt canada's offense in one of the plays that illustrated was his time. It pit against clemson when mad. Kinder's offense really made the clemson tigers. Look silly it was. He had tackles moving all over the field. He had several different versions and shifts. You might see some of that coming up in zach manner going in motion yet. It sounds shocking. But that's what matt. Canada likes to do buddy johnson the rookie inside linebacker. He's been playing very very well. So far this preseason believe it or not he kinda got a promotion with bush and schober in the as the first starting inside linebackers. The second group. Roberts bylane and buddy johnson. So that means a buddy johnson although it doesn't show up on the actual depth chart looks like he has leapfrog players like marcus allen. Leapfrog someone like ulysses gilbert the third in his now with the second team defense. Good sign for the rookie at a texas. Am we spoke about the offensive line being back. And then lastly the two minute drill. They ran the drill. I believe they started with the ball at the forty yard line. They admit fifty some odd seconds with one time out They did not have been rothlisberger. Do this drill. Dwayne haskins was working with the starters for the first time it really encamp. He'd see stirring passes to klay pool and smith schuster. This is what we all wanted. We all wanted to see. How is dwayne haskins going to do this. And so haskins working with the ones rebounded from back-to-back back incompletions dismiss us to to complete three straight throws and finish. The two minutes of the touchdown. Klay this per brook prior of espn mason..

"Brian anthony davis. We just talked about expectations. I wanna get your thoughts on some training camp battles and i have an article to running on wednesday. I think it's ads nine o'clock in the morning and i basically went through all the training camp battles that we had going on prior to camp. Starting wanna see where you think. It is as of right now so you already penis. Yes no bugging dried. You haven't been ready for anything. It's not expectation. One more expectation and that go for brian to actually watch the game. So we can discuss. That will be every single snap. Let's get let's get to this day. No of deontay. Johnson played them. Okay let's go with the center position so we're talking about the battle that was between half an hour finney and green. We all know. Dave brought it up at the press conference. Everyone was like tomlin. Say that he shouldn't. You shouldn't read too much into green getting to starts to start. The preseason doesn't matter and we're back leaves adamant one game after one game. How do you see shaking out at the center position. Brian will start with you. I graded the other day. Mr kendrick green or i'm sorry quadrant green day. I apologize Mr green number fifty three i. It looks like they are grooming him to be the starter and the way he played in the game. He got a lot of push in the hall of fame game. It seems like he's winning that battle already. But we haven't seen that much of anybody else. I think it's almost like the I'm sure we're going to talk about the other battle. The big battle the jeff's concern about but it's almost. I'm not going to bring those players up. But i am going to bring up kendrick renowned and say if he could continue to be consistent and get the kind of play that we got from him in the hall of fame game then. The job is probably his if he if he reverts back to looking like a rookie. 'cause he i thought he looked. I thought he looked pretty good the other day. I know there was a there was some problems with snaps in practice but there was not a problem with a snap from him mason. It was a bubble between mason and chase klay poll so i was not as concerned about that so if he plays clean that battles his i think right now. He's got to be the front runner daily thing. I was surprised at something from this past game. Do you know the kendra. Green played the least amount of snaps on the offensive line of any player. I kind of blew my mind. I need because i read the article. Did the arctic want it that that surprised me. That has our played forty one and green played eighteen. Where with every so they brought hashing our and to play. What one series with the guys that were running his ones in that game before they didn't switched the four guys which i thought was kind of interesting but i still kind feel like it's greens job to i. Don't wanna say lose. I'm going to say to not grab because he's being given every opportunity to do it. Synock grand to not grow. I mean if he if he doesn't get if he doesn't get the week one starting job. It's not from lack of a chance to show what he has. He's been given the opportunity day in day out in practice running with the once every time when they start practice and the good new seven shots they liked the list out. Who's the offensive line. I try to put that tweet. In the in the tracker article every day and it's been kendra green. So he's getting his chance but it's funny because my talented say you know. Should we read into this. And he said you shouldn't and then he followed it up with all these glowing remarks of kendra green his work ethic. And now he's adapting well and varsity level stuff unless kendrick green starts throwing snaps over heads are bouncing them fumbling. It's his job. I think that's to say it's his job like y'all said all right. Let's go to another training camp battle. Let's talk about guard. This wasn't necessarily one that was talked about a bunch but now the sudden rashard cowart his in injected himself into a very important role guys. What's going to happen. Guard in terms of the depth. Not necessarily starters but who they keep you got half an hour he can play guardia finney. Who can play guard finney. I don't think played any snaps at center on monday night. So what are we going on with the depth. That guard. brian go ahead. I think the guy that is the most susceptible to being cut would be. Bj finney out of the three. I i would think that. I think that they're high enough on half an hour with the fact as a backup being able to play both positions. And if it's it's a situation between the both of those. I think has an hour winds that face off now. I a lot of people in the live chat will do not wanna see that and i get it but i'm just saying what i think will happen now. Coward came out of nowhere. And when i say came out of nowhere the fans when they signed him and when they signed jo hague as well when they signed both of these guys they there was no excitement over it. There was really no fanfare whatsoever. They they were being labeled as camp bodies. And i think coward came out in that game the other day and proclaimed that i am not a camp body that i can go ahead and hold down my job here so i really think that. If it's a face. I mean if it's the three to go in it's not going to be finn but if the front runner right now for that backup guard position has got to be coward based on what we saw all right dave leaving about the guard position. Yeah i'm kind of on the exact opposite end. There is one brian. Anthony davis i think. Bj finney in how he played in the hall of fame game and the fact that he stepped in guard and in my opinion. He's a much better guard than center. I think i don't think there's any way vinny feeney does make the team. He's just he came. We have. I haven't talked about him enough because i've was one that said. Hey we don't have anything from two thousand twenty to go off of because he wasn't even going to get on the field for seattle and then after he got traded to the bengals couldn't get on the field there either but you know what he was on the field on monday night or monday night thursday night in the hall of fame. I can't remember what what date is. He played twenty four snaps. And if you not to have grades or what you know if they're the end all be all everything. I'm not saying that but jeff did. The article finney was the third highest ranked offensive lineman get. He did very well because they adamant dart. I've from the very beginning. I've had reshad coward on this team because i thought you know he actually brings in some experience at guard and right now. He's you're starting left guard for now. So that's why. I'm thinking that's the way rolls out. We weren't even talking about guard yet. But we kinda got there because of the anything right. Yeah and our possibly making the team. I have passed now or not. Make a team to boy. Wha- what a damning thing now it'd be he's starting center on the right now. I think it's pretty change. I know they love guys names on the table. Let's go to the next position the training camp battles of running back. This got interesting because of an injury. That was benny snell. Ceylan biolog- has played well but now he's hurt and he's probably not going to play on thursday. We know nauseous making the team..

"Really good. Thanks just. In sort of some like backchannel ways of adrian. Klemm was their new offensive line coach. Now so you know that's that's what i'll say about that. I mean. I think that he has a chance. You know to to get them better And i i like some of the players. There is wealth especially the younger guys You know their future prospects and then just in terms of all sense of line coaching. I think that position coach probably makes more of a difference than any of the others And i think it really is because it's there coaching five guys on the field. At the same time you know whereas all other positions you know cyber maybe devi and i think db coach you know. Generally very valuable as well as vice. The a lot of them become defensive coordinators. I think almost all the top becomes a coordinators right now at a d. coach background and But but yes. I think there's kind of a parallel. They're actually just wrote about that as well. And db and all since winds and a large reason for that is. Because there's there's there's a team within our team dynamic place revolting them you know. Typically there's four or five of those guys on the field at the same time so having a coach that can get those guys to be on. The same page can really have but can really pay dividends on the field Just because of the nature of that and and just how how how much those guys rely on each other and You know. I just don't think that that can be overstated. So that's invaluable Having a guy. Like mike month check he resurrected garrett bowles career i think he pretty much created allesandro villanueva's career and a lot of ways You know former army wide receiver. you know. now he's gone on year seven or eight or whatever as left tackle. I think one check deserves a lot of credit So yeah i think offense of line coach and you look at what bill callahan did last year in cleveland Those are like the two top dogs right now. In in the business and their presences are fell everywhere they go so i think it makes a huge difference really quality offense line coach so on the steelers. It sounds like you have the some optimism on their talent. I am not a guy to say that nausea hairs can't do it because the offensive line is we have the opposite blind twenty eight thousand least think they have a chance to get towards the guy bridge or something if they can stay healthy and maybe develop a little bit of their talent. What do you think about this year. Their chances of getting to league average. I think it's decent. You know. I think there definitely can can climb from twenty eight. You know maybe twenty you know kind of that range at least jump the tier that they're in now to your five tier four. I certainly think that's possible. I'd be surprised if they got to tier three You know that's that's possible. But i would bank more on a tier four ceiling this year. Which would be good enough. You know for guys to get production and things like that. But yeah i mean i really like kendra green their center on the guy did a film room within was around rounded offense ally. Mash mines wash ton his film in illinois. I think he's going to be a guy who can come in right away and be pretty especially in the run game. And that's a big thing with that. I think we should at least touch on with my rankings. I'm trying to gear all this towards pass protection as well. You know in terms of how we're trying to predict a pressure and things like that. So i think that they're gonna probably be a better run blocking unit than pass blocking unit. Which i think is important to say but like kendra green for instance. I think better run blocker try. Turner better run blocker. Kevin dotson who. I'm a huge fan of his. Well i think he's probably a better run blocker but he's pretty good pass blocker as well. And then they're tackles are really what has brought them down to this point twenty eight because i think they're interior has a chance it'd be pretty good It's just tackles worry me you know. doesn't matter who it is. If a banner a core four or i think the rookie from texas am dan moore has a chance at starting tackles. Well i mean. I kind of like more But i think the variants in those guys is huge. And that's what really worries me. Is there a better run blocking unit than pass blocking and also the tackle situation as it doesn't look great. Yeah i mean. One thing that i've talked about is this steelers cannot do what they did. Last which is tried to drop back. Big ben thirty forty fifty times a game. That's just not gonna work. They're going to try to run the ball. I've grown warmer and warmer on nausea hairs as the process has gone along. I'm not too worried. I like to hear what you're saying about their room blocking their interior. I'm not too worried about this for nausea to the bengals. I mean my god for as long as we've been doing this ten fifteen years. I don't know it seems like decades. This offensive line has been an issue for the bengals. They had a chance to take penny sewell and number five overall. Evan thought they should've taken penny sewell. I believe at number five overall. They pass on him in favor of jomar chase so now they have all these outrageous skill players. I mean you could say. they have. One of the best skill sets in the entire league. Borough mixing chase higgins. Boy is the offensive lines. So bad for the bengals. That line can ruin this offense for them brandon. What do you think about the bengals offensive line out outlook this year. I think is better than last year. I'll say that for sure. Even though i have twenty seven. I think last year coming in i had lower than that with not much of a positive outlook at all. Now they're low going into the season. But i think there's some room to jump tears dwell for them You know adding riley reef at right tackle. I think reef is probably going to be a better right tackle and left tackle. And he's going to be better than bobby heart. So that's an upgrade. There's a lot of uncertainty on the interior to me. I mean i'd like quinton spain. I think he's a better run blocker pass blocker but it's injuries with him. If he's going to be on the field for sixteen games or seventeen. I don't think that's likely And then you know to not replace or outright upgrade michael jordan right now i know. They drafted Clemson guy a jackson carmen. Who i would assume is going to take that role sooner rather than later at left guard and put michael jordan on the bench. Um where he should be. Honestly because he's the one who created that injury for borough last year and he in my opinion was probably the worst left guard in football last year So i would assume jackson. Carmen is going to be there. And then if carmen takes over that position Which i haven't heard a whole lot about him so far in camp. I don't even know if he's practicing yet he might be. I'm not sure I haven't written up their portion of my article yet but I'll look into that. So if carmen is there then i'll be a little bit more optimistic about it has been practicing. Okay yeah. I was just reading about this.

"Zach gentry is really turning heads early in the steelers training camp to be exciting to see what he can do. When the actual bullet start flying so to speak on thursday night now cam hayward on saturday. He was the recipient of a najji harris shakedown. He had broken. Through the line of scrimmage. Niger years made a mis- he wasn't going to let that happen again. This is according to brian. Bad kill as the steelers go to their full contact team. Run drill joe higgs back with the first team offense of right. Tackle the pool. Deck banner out ben rothlisberger just dare water in a wheel real route off. Play action while lined up as the f. In matt candidate scheme. that's a fullback. Made a nice catch down the field back. You thought the steelers offensive line did a great a better job run. Blocking kim hayward wasn't about to miss nausea years and the whole again like he did saturday he got to him today. Brought him down with authority and kindly of course nice birds by kaelin bala jr and jalen emails. Who returned to practice on. Monday jujubes misused. You're all off season. Had been talking about and matt canada's offense. He plans on being on the outside more. Well he finally got his wish. He keeps lobbying for more reps on the outside. He beat joe. Haden off the line of scrimmage rothlisberger hidden for a big gain. And it's gonna be tough to get him back into the slot after a big play like that the dust up so the scuffles continue. And for some reason. My goodness it's these rookies and came hayward according to brook prior. Espn cam hayward just got into it. With a pair of offensive lineman kendra green and dan moore. Junior who blocked through the whistle. Hayward wasn't a fan again. I've said it a million times. This isn't the first scuffle between more and hayward kendrick green got into today. They're trying to make a name for themselves. Hayward's not a fan. That's sometimes it's just the way the cookie crumbles as they say it with benny snow away. Kayla mbala jr was starting to make some place. Brian bad reports on a day with no sign of any snell. It's dealers practice ballots. Just another had another nice day spitting away from attack on the backfield. Mike tomlin yells. Good run k b. That's how you know it was a nice play speaking of the aggressiveness. Brook prior rights after ten days of practice. I can't tell you if the offense line will be quote unquote good quite yet. But i can tell you. They will definitely have an edge. This is one of those situations where it's always heard from adrian. Klemm all off season is being aggressive being physical and it seems like this is exactly what we're seeing. Now it's coming to fruition. They might not be the most technically sound but they might just have some nasty to them. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. Pat farms continues awhile practice. He had a really nice catch from ben rothlisberger in the seven on seven session. He seems to have the magnet gloves. I mean my gosh is they catches everything thrown his way in for those. That are still concerned about ben. Rothlisberger de passes prior rights. Ben rothlisberger just hit deonte johnson deep down the field. The pass was probably probably travelled about thirty five yards in the air. The crowd really liked it. he didn't also hit. James washington on the sideline step out of bounds for a deep throw after that. So it seems like my goodness ben rothlisberger deep passes older breath might be okay in twenty. Twenty one rico. Bussey who made a name for himself on. Saturday had another good day on monday. Met at one handed catch made it look easy on a passenger plane. Haskins the players on the sideline love. Did you heard some people. You'll a rico after the play. Good to see a young player making a name for himself. Let's see what he can do when we're talking about actual preseason snaps and repetitions. The goal line drill. That's the biggest drill. They run on some circumstances. Where really physical coach tomlin said. He felt like the offensive line answered. The bell on the goal line drill said. They did largely what they needed to do. Zach banner was a big part of that. All right folks that about does it for this training camp. Recap podcasters a lot of news again. We will be back tomorrow tuesday. They'll be the last training camp.

"With the first team. It didn't take long for mike tomlin to say. Listen calm yourselves down. This is because of the hall of fame game. Don't read too much into it. Of course people read too much into it. But still dan moore. Junior has been making news outside of the fact that he was running with the ones. How in blocking drills he got into it cam. Scuffles have already broken out with two players is ahah bugs. I wasn't surprised by that. Isaiah bugs in carlos. Davis got into a little fisticuffs on the sideline last season in baltimore. So i'm not surprised that bugs is someone that's a little bit testy. The second player though. Dan moore junior. Might wanna look in the mirror and say did i make a good life decision today. And that's cam hayward why anyone would want to test that ban that man. Because he is a man he is a strong man. I don't get it so dan more my new look himself and say dan. If you want to have a long career you might not want to poke the bear. Ask quinton nelson from two thousand eighteen when you see the bad end of cam. Hayward's encounter so but dan moore junior. The thing about this is when you did like the scouting reports on dan. more coming texas. A lot of people said that he was a finesse player. Didn't have the aggressive streak that he has a size. He has the skill set but he's a developmental prospect. If i'm dan moore and i'm reading these things oh my gosh it's getting a fire under me like you would not believe. And i'm ready to go out in a certain myself in front of the coaches and say i'm not going to be pushed around by anyone not bugs not to it not hayward not lulu not warmly. It doesn't matter who you put in front of me. They're going to get my best. I have no problem with that. If it went too far. Went too far it happens. I mean anyone. That's old enough to remember a young antonio brown who was a budding superstar literally getting into fights with i taylor almost every single training camp practice. It was almost every single practice. They were going toe to toe. The veteran i taylor the becoming star antonio brown and they were butting heads. It happens it happens it might tomonori says it. Iron sharpens iron. Dan more junior. I learned a lot about him in this very short time based on the fact that he showed he's not scared of anyone we'll see if it pans out because he's gonna get a lot of reps during that hall of fame game. The next is kendrick. Green kendrick green as as an interesting camp. He did start with this. Starting starters. he was not listed as a starter on the first depth chart. Don't read too much into add. The steelers rarely ever have a rookie as a starter on the depth chart although najji harris is the starter at running back kendrick. Green is going to get a lot of reps in that hall of fame game. He missed a day for personal reasons. I really want to see what the steelers think of him by how they utilize him and how he responds but kendrick green the fact. They're even saying he's going to start. 'cause do i need to remind everybody out there. Jc an our not proven bj finney not proven kendra green not proven as rookie. They're given the rookie. The first shot. I have no problem they said. Bj feeney's going to get the start in the hall of fame game and then kendra green. We're gonna work in nope kendrick. Greens getting the start. That's significant all right. The next offensive player pat fryer second round. Pick out a penn state. This kid has been turning heads so foreign training camp. He is his smooth route running his tremendous athleticism his ability to catch the football. Just on sunday those reporting random wonderful fade route cottage to- tapped in the back of the endzone. Summer saying travis kelsey. I think it's a little bit more of a rob gronkowski type. I don't think he's as athletic. Is travis kelsey but any time you're talking about that type of mold for a tight end. That's exciting is. Heath miller was great in heath miller was probably one of the greatest if not the greatest tight end in steelers history but heath miller was.

"In case your first time listening we've had a lot of people join us during the season last year in twenty twenty one that weren't with us during training camp. If you're one of those people just understand the training camp recap is really just a chance for me to let you know what's going on a practice. These will only be happening when the steelers actually practice. Obviously there's not gonna be news when they have the day off in the steelers. Were back on the field for the very first time. They reported on wednesday. Thursday was their very first time at practice. And it wasn't saint vincent college it wasn't latrobe. Pa but there was a lot of news happening amongst the pittsburgh steelers. And i'm going to break it down for you in simple terms is what you need to know The steelers after practice did have three three people. I should say three very important. People available for in-person media. It was actually the first time since two thousand nineteen you know. Mike tomlin stood in front of reporters. They weren't that close but he stood in front of reporters. So mike tomlin office. He spoke to ben. Rothlisberger and t. j. watt. Were the three people that spoke after practice on thursday so a couple of things of note The first thing that came that was really noticeable for me. Was that This mike tomlin said the kendrick green. Everyone's thinking could this guy be the center for the steelers in week. One what he said he is going to be the starter at center at least for week. One of the preseason. He also said the big. Dan more could start at tackle. I'm not sure if it was left to right tackle. But he did say the kendra kendrick green but dan more could be starting as well And then you got a feel for already early in training camp. There were some that were getting into like kendra green guy first team snaps. He dealt with ben rothlisberger on thursday rothlisberger said. Although it's not pouncey he said that Kendrick green communicated did all the calls. They didn't fumble a snap. So good i start for kendrick green but then also antoine brooks junior six round draft pick at a twenty and the twenty twenty draft out of maryland. You know how. Mike tomlin loves disturbs. He intercepted rothlisberger from the slot and rothlisberger. He said quote. He's filling mike hilton shoes. Who's been a rock on that defense for him to make that play. I was happy for him. And then also jim wechsel of twenty four seven. Sports said rothlisberger appeared frustrated by sensational diving interception by slot corner. Antoine brooks dens. Eddie was just amazed and was complimenting. Mike hilton's heir apparent a larkin change in the course of a preseason in training camp folks but it seems like the steelers are giving that first shot at that slot cornerback to antoine brooks junior. Some people thought it might be james pierre. Some people thought it might be someone like marcus allen no antoine brooks junior is getting the first look and he is seems to be making the most out of its keep that a minds to file it away. It's only day one. I don't wanna make too much video out of this but still something. No worthy also tj. Watts new deal might. Tom was asked about that. And he said quote. I'm sure that process will run. Its course and we'll have something to announce That's interesting. I didn't expect a contract to be done before the season. But maybe it will. Ben rothlisberger took to the podium and he was asked about some of the off season in a narratives supposedly involving his ability and his physique etc and he said quote are things being said about me nationally and then with a smile said well. What's new ben rothlisberger. Understand what's being said about him folks. If you're someone that's sitting there thinking how does not know he knows and he is. Trust me he's motivated to go out and show people that he is still capable of getting the job done. Speaking of rothlisberger a lot of people are wondering will he be able to learn nat canada's offense. It is different. It is complex. No one really knows exactly what it's going to look like rothlisberger certainly does he was asked about how he's learning all the formations. The new verbiage play calls. I mean this guy's going into his eighteenth year in the national football league actually said that his daughter helped him make flash cards and he said quote. There's been some quizzes with a smile. Devon bush if you didn't read the article on behind steel curtain dot com. He was told that he's basically been fully cleared medically with his knee. That he won't be you know. Have any downtime. Before he's able to practice he should be given the green light right away. Zach banner also ahead of schedule. Zero steeler players will be starting camp on the pup list the physically unable to perform list. That is great news for the steelers to not have anyone. That's dealing with a major injury. Early on now kevin and didn't work today. He didn't practice today. Said he's dealing with something that something is not serious enough to put them on the publis. I wouldn't put too much stock into that something. That was interesting. That i thought of it. i was curious. Did the steelers know about vince. Williams thinking about retirement according to mark bali of the athletic. He said it sounds like the steelers. Had no idea that vince williams retiring until yesterday. That's really interesting to me. Really interesting to me. And so Maybe he didn't tell them maybe he didn't know i'm not saying it's his fault. I'm not saying that anyone is to blame but very interesting news there. If the steelers had no clue that vince williams was about to hang it. Up tomlin. Mike tomlin was asked about the new offense of line in he did not Splice words he said quote. We don't have the bar set too high. We were last in the league in rushing. We have nowhere to go but up with certain aspects of that. Yeah i hope that that's the way they view it as they can only go up but at the same time we hope that they they don't just move up a little bit. They actually thrive. That's that's the hope that is the hope. And then lastly in like. I said there wasn't a ton of news coming out of this first day of camp There are some steelers that will be wearing new numbers. Some people like the jersey. Some people want to go out and buy a bunch of jersey. so in case you're interested like new. Newly-acquired melvin ingram. Outside linebacker will wear number eight number eight this is. He's taking advantage that new. Nfl rule where linebackers are allowed to wear single digit numbers. He wore number. Eight trade turner. But we're never fifty one. That's really weird for me. When i think fifty one i think james farrior But still fifty one and yeah a buddy johnson. The rookie from texas am fourth round. Pick is also wearing number fifty one He's on the other side so something's gonna give but honestly if the rookie makes the team he will probably not be too attached to that number if trae turner wants it. We'll keep it that way. Kicker sam sloman. Who is basically a camp unless chris boswell gets hurt is gonna wear sixteen and also newly acquired offense attack. Oh chaz green is wearing number seventy four so for all you jersey fans out there. There's your jersey fixing all those new numbers the pittsburgh steelers. I wanna make this very clear. The pittsburgh steelers have not released. That i've seen any type of schedule for training camp when they're at latrobe. There is a clear cut. The players are working out this day this day off this day this day this day. Preseason game i have not seen anything like that. So i wanna be able to say. Check me tomorrow. For another training camp recap but if they give him the day off and there won't be a training camp recap so your best bet is to check out behind.

"I don't wanna see the steelers scheming around trying to trying to cover for an offensive line. That's not getting the job done because it's eventually gonna come back to bite him like it. Did last year. You've got to step up. I don't know that the kendra greens gun is is definitely going to be that guy. But he's very important if he's going to be. Let me ask you this question. Dave for i go and talk about nausea harris. How soon do you think will. No i is is kendrick green at center which only played four games in college their senior year. How soon do you think will know this guy's got it or is it going to take some time like how do you think we'll know that in preseason do you think it'll take regular season. I mean when do you think we'll see our kendrick range and play. You're going to get a dave answer play hard. Are you gotta play hard. It depends how much he's got it if he's got it and he's got it you're going to see it. The first time he goes out of the field if he's got it pretty good. It's going to take a little bit more time. If he's you know what. I'm saying the level of got when marquees pouncey first came out now granted. He was a first round pick but he still wasn't necessarily going to be these starter to begin that season but when he came out in the preseason you could just see dude that guy's got it now so would it be fantastic if we could see the fame game. Yeah just because if you don't doesn't mean that it's still not going to get there because like you say he doesn't have a lot of experience playing center but the a third round pick if the steelers were afraid they were all honesty. If the steelers starts someone else was going to take kendra green. Who knows how they would have drafted him if they were afraid he was going to go at pick. Twenty five they. They've considered taking pick twenty four. I don't know but that's that's what made it. so why. Because he fits this team so much better that at for what they wanna do at center that what he would have dealt other teams. Let's get explanation good explanation. Brian aim to save fry gail. Yeah i just contend that there's four other guys on that line and if you have one guy that is i mean. He's good enough to be on that team. And one guy is not going to break the line. And there's going to be other positions for najji harris to run in other holes for him to run out of so i mean i this guy's not i love kendrick green. I think he's a great pick. I doubt he starts to start the season. And i'm telling you. I mean so if we're looking for twenty twenty one that's why i went with a running back in i leg. I said this is just not one player. There's five on that line. That are taking care of business. We saw a line in two thousand eight. That had justin hartwig at center and a lot of question marks. There is no pedigree on that line. It was a not a very good line and they won the super bowl. They also had a rookie running back that year. He got hurt in week. Four but things aren't going to fall apart with just one player. I i'm not downplaying. The importance of nausea hairs to the steelers team this year. Absolutely not number two number one here and i'm splitting hairs and and i think bronze got a good point that it might not be kendrick green but what i'm saying is if it's not i think the steelers could really be in trouble and you're saying it's just one spot go back and watch those games. Jc aznar had to start. And you need to tell me that one start that one player on the line did make a huge difference. Jeffrey benedict's been screaming that for forever. Just having to put half an hour on the field but the steelers that he's huge advantage disadvantage. But you didn't have. You didn't have the runners you. I mean benny. Snow had a good game but the sunshine on that dogs but in week one really because he's had to really sterling games for this team but he wasn't able to do stuff in weeks two through five when they still had the scheme and in the run. Go game going. He was not good in weeks. Two through five he was giving a carries. it was all connor. He got all the carries. We got her when he carried the ball. He was not he did not look good. So i mean i get what you're saying i just i mean we're looking at the fact that has an hour. Wasn't the reason that that that that that run wasn't that running game wasn't doing well. It was a collection of five. But this is actually a different lineup. So to say that it's just one guy that's gonna make the difference now. It's not you did not have a najji harass. You did not have a superstar running back. James connor is not a superstar running back. He was a good running back. He was not a superstar. There's a difference and there's a dynamic here and hey we have people in the live chat saying the bit. I'm ninety seven percent wrong go ahead. I'll take that bet. Lay it down boys. Okay by only point is yeah. You're saying benny's now wasn't that great and there's other ones yeah. His yards per attempt were where low but the difference was week. One nine thousand nine attempts week week. Two three attempts week three seven attempts week week four. There wasn't a week four week. Five seven attempts we week six six attempts week. Seven two attempts okay. Who was right tackle in that in week. One exactly. that was my point that might make a difference to. That's that's my point is that is that the the the guys blocking up front can take a kid can make an average running back better but the guy's not doing well upfront can make a great running back average. Yeah but the point. you're messing though. Is that guy that was there a week. One at right tackle. Wasn't there weeks. Two through five. There was a different guy in there and they had to make a move. There was a different guy at guard as well. I live with my point and they bryant their importance. That's what's important. you're proven. My point date your mic wanted. You need a good runner. You're saying that one guy. Bj finney who might not even play if the center position is the most important of the whole thing. And it's not one guy doesn't break the entire line right. I'll have to make sure we addressed that a little bit more some future vertex. Would we lay down there. What is there a third person on the show. I'll tell you what you all tell me. I mean when you are already come on jeff tell us. Tell us what we both stand. Okay so you want me to participate in the show now. All right. that's fine. I could have settled this on. My own is the third person which has a different pick but now you sound like a married couple for crying out loud. Relax all right everyone. Relax. here's the thing that. I think a lot of you in days. Kind of saying that Days kind of saying the same thing brian. I kind of agree with you a little bit. Here's here's the factor. I go back to lady on bell. The line was not always perfect with beyond bill lady on dell was so talented he was able to make something out of nothing on more than one occasion i think. The naji harris is that kind of running back that he can make something out of nothing. Now dave is going to be perfect. Is you're gonna have a thousand yards. No not a fell. Austrians of lines not really opening up holes. And we do know that is offensive line at alabama was really good but at the same time you can watch plays where things did break down in alabama the play that he hurdled a guy under notre dame defensive back was a bake basically a busted play. He bounces it out to the outside..

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

"That was a great athlete that really never panned out? I believe they took him in the top 10 long ago. That is Aaron. Maybe it's a horror story. I mean, that would be my major constructs My major concern about Jason away, understand why he came out, I think Was a mistake. Carlos bashing to me is one of the most underrated players in this year's draft. How do you enter the 2020 draft? He made me see the second round grade from scouts. He's a guy who's big. He's explosive. He's tough, any smart, you'll watch, bash him on film. He doesn't just pin his ears back and rush up the field. He plays assignment football, and he's been a very good pass rusher. They didn't. They didn't send him up the build all that much this year. Wait for us. But when he was at the Senior bowl, and he was in those one on one drills, he was devastating opponent. In my opinion, he's worth a late first round choice. Don't know if he goes there. Possibly. I don't know about the bills. Maybe the Ravens, but he's definitely worthy. There's much more risk with away them bash him, and I think in this year's draft more than any other draft in the past, you're what you're gonna want to go with a known commodity and that's absolutely natural. We've heard that it's a pretty deep draft on the offensive line side of things. Some of these like we mentioned tight ends. There's none of them in here then. But offensive line seems to be a pretty fairly deep group. Talk about the interior offensive lineman. Certainly the tackles are always the guys that people prize, but are there quality interior guys? Certainly those guys will kind of hang around until the late part of the first round, at least. Yet terrific offensive tackle classes really through three rounds. But if you're looking for an interior guy day to maybe Trey Smith out of Tennessee terrific player does have some medical issues in the past. Queen miners. The Senior Bowl hero from Wisconsin Whitewater small school guy didn't play football in 2020 because his program canceled the entire season but just went and dominated three days of practice at the senior ball. Aaron. Thanks the big mauling of offensive guard from Notre Dame. These guys they're all second date picks Kendra Green of Illinois who can play center or guard. Even Dante Smith of East Carolina left tackle for East Carolina past three years. Very good at left tackle is gonna push him to guard the next level, so you will be able to get a good interior offensive lineman. Starting middle of day to really through the end of round three where the value is not is that defensive tackle as you Well know, Tony, So I know you kind of said the pills could be targeting a defensive tackle in the first round at some point, but there's really only one guy right. That's It's got a true first round grade or a chance to go in the first round it it's bar more, isn't it is there are mean on on Zuri Kay, if I'm saying that, right on was a Rica is another guy, but he seems to be under sized at £289. He is, but he's strong and he's an explosive guy, A three technique guy who you could actually lined up. I believe in a free man front at defensive end, But you're right. I mean, I said that the I know that the bills are looking at direction if they can't get a top pass rusher or top quarterback You still get some passionate? Won't those guys a good pass? Rush is on the inside bar More and woozy Levi from Washington. Okay, Both those guys were explosive. One more has got much more outside the bar. Mars kind of hit or miss. You want formal on film oftentimes is controlled at the point by single blocker. There are some concerns about that doesn't always play up the expectations, but he's got a high upside. In the in the wildest aspirations of this entire draft class. And you spend it is positively as you can. For the guys who have this possibility. Which of this group that is gonna be drafted? How many Hall of famers could we see in this? There you go. If I get this, right, so I went in award. Yes, you do. Yes, you do. Yes, you do. How Steve really hitting you with only like 15 years down. It'll be like 20 years from now we'll check in with you, then. There you go. Uh, you know, I'm going to say zero. Uh, but if I if I had if I had to make a choice, I'm going to say maybe Trevor large. There were no there's no such thing as a can't miss prospect. There's no such thing as the perfect prospect, but he's awfully close. So if there was one guy like the Peyton Manning's ex cetera, I'll have this go with leave with trouble Lords, which wasn't very difficult we've got. We've had this conversation. You said Kyle Pitts is this revolutionary tight end prospect and I've told Brownie like, Go back a few years. And everybody was talking the same way a little bit the same way about O. J. Howard, these physical brute specimen. Howard's a little bit of a different player than Pitts is, but we see tight end prospects come out fairly regularly that seem physically better than everybody else. But we don't see tight ends that are great. Come out of the same rate. These guys don't seem to pan out. Why is Kyle pit's gonna be different? Because he did it on every down basis of Florida. You talked about O. J. Howard hold O. J. Howard was great that you're at the Senior Bowl and he dominated Senior bowl practice. But when you went back and watched this film You could see points in time where he looked very disinterested and wasn't really worried about getting involved in the action if he wasn't involved in the play. That's not Kyle pits compasses, a £245 receiver that plays the tight end position. As I've said, time and time again. Let's forget about what call pitches done. Watch the film and see who he's done it against. SEC title game Alabama matched up Patrick's retained the top cornerback in this year's draft against pits pits beat him South Carolina game. South Carolina Gamecocks matched up Jason Horn against carpets had speed him began that used to be known as the world's largest outdoor cocktail party. Florida Georgia. Georgia's got three defensive backs, It'll be top 100 picks. Rug tended against the top 100 picks. They rotated against pits. They couldn't stop him. You look at what happened when what I would've just voluntarily sat pits down against Ellis..
