"kendrick green" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Apparently gonna you know. At least it's it's it. Seems like it's it's trending towards him starting the season as the as at left tackle. But he's he's he's still unknown We all love kevin dawson. I think he'll be fine at left. Guard kendrick green again. He's somebody we all love. We're all excited about. But he's just rookie and he struggled a little bit at least in preseason. Jc hassen our kind of looks like he improved this year and he showed it in training camp and preseason. He struggled mightily last year in a six game to be played. So you don't know if if if it's if it's an actual improvement or if he just benefited from playing against a bunch of second third and fourth stringers in the preseason so you know one of those two guys is likely going to be. You're starting center. And they're both unproven in sort of unknowns. Trae turn her i think he's a decent fettering. He certainly not the player it used to be. When he was a pro bowler with the panthers years ago But i think he'll be fine with him. He'll be a you know a decent again a decent veteran on the right side. I mean. is it going to be szucs. He kinda struggled a bit last year on a right. Tackle zach banner. I mean people for assuming that he's you know when he comes in he's eventually healthy right tackle spot and and and and not and not look back but remember this contest that was apparently Con context for the right tackle spot the competition for the right tackle spot in twenty twenty twenty twenty or is apparently really really close between these two guys and we saw how much schuch struggled last year. So what does that say about zach. Banner you know. And we've only seen him in in. What three three and a half quarters of play so far a professional football player starting at at right tackle. So you want. He does come back. It doesn't mean that he's gonna take take the bull by the horns so to speak in and just really Cemented his his his Position or status as a starting right tackle. So yeah definitely caused concern. I think we should have expected that you know when you have such a massive overhaul like they did you know. It's not going to be a seamless transition to your new starting five. You had to know. They're they're gonna be growing pains. A some players were going to underperform. Some are going to get hurt. And i think that's what we're seeing right now. So the question is can they get it together. Can they find the right combination sooner rather than later after the regular season starts. That's that's the question I'm not. I'm not ready to to write them off. As far as i think there's a lot of towel on this line. I i again. I'm really excited about about more and datsuns. I think he's this close to being a stud in a kendrick. Green has has a lot of potential. It's just a matter of of Can they realize it. And if you if you have three young guys who who really become great professional offensive lineman well then. That's that's a. that's a lot of the heavy lifting. Then it's just a matter of of filling in the gaps so to speak and and that would be right garden right tackle. So there's reason to be concerned but i don't think there's reason to panic just yet when it comes to your line. We'll see how how unfolds before it started the year and even then let's see what else we have here from dennis sheridan and he says if they put another inside linebacker going to go down there and get in people's faces. Well i think that would be warranted. It's because it's happened a lot over the last few years but again that's where that's where you have to find the right combination of of defensive backs to to Ops to make sure that doesn't happen but at the same time this is where this offensive coordinators get paid to because they they're paid to create these kinds of matchup mismatches. You know so. Yeah i mean yeah you can blame for that. And he's certainly deserves blame. But how much credit Give the coordinate. The opposing coaches to for devising game plans that that put these linebackers and these bad position so it works both ways. All right devin. logan. Says two. And i'm praying can be okay. Not just physically. I lost my brother. Two years ago was hardest thing. I ever felt but didn't want face world for well after that. Yeah i mean. I can't imagine i've really knock on wood and whatever i haven't experienced that kind of lost yet. Hopefully i never happy when it comes to my siblings or anybody else that i'm close to you know to young but Yeah i mean you have to put yourself in their shoes. That's we're empathy comes in and You know imagine going trying to go to work every day with such a after after suffering such a tragic loss in your family. I mean semi to it who you know obviously makes an incredible living. I'm sure i'm sure. He has a lot of responsibilities in his family. Anybody would who makes that kind of money. with their family and so i'm sure a lot of the the the the burden as far as like dealing with the loss of of his brother and a funeral and everything. I'm sure foul on his shoulders. So you have that. Plus you have the grieving process. Of course you know. He's dealing with an injury. So yeah you know. It's not just something you you snap your fingers. Then you're okay you know it it's People talking about distractions tweets. Whatever right. i think that's a bunch of malarkey and not to sound not the really go crazy with my one of my. I swear words but you know take talk. That's nothing like this is a this is real life right here. This isn't a real life distraction. This is the kind of thing that that You know can really interfere with your kurt with your profession so hopefully this just for not even for a football thing just for him as a person that he he can find a way to deal with this in in can't really move on from anything like that but learned to cope with it and and and live with it so all right check.

"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..

"I'll give you the and you probably know what the second part is going to be. What is it going to tell us if kendrick green comes out and plays great in the hall of fame. The one thing. I think that's going to tell us. Is the one thing that i would take from that. Is that the steelers. Made the wise choice. I will be much happier with their choice of going harris fire. Move and waiting till the third round to get someone to play center. It will not just one guy wanted wanted all along if he comes up in place. Well then it's going to be like okay. That worked the way that draft then looks more. It has the potential to work the way the steelers wanted to. I'm going to say that if he comes out and plays great all. That's the biggest question was going to say as well who was really playing for the cowboys. What was it was just the hall of fame game. What's really you know. Can you really learn that much from this you know. Let's get him out there with against you. Know with starters against starters and you know snap into ben rothlisberger and everything in order to see how he really looks came because my follow up question is what does it tell us. If he doesn't play well. Well there's different ways that that the this argument you're just making oh. We don't know you could be like well well. He was playing with a bunch of nobodies there was. You know what was had lining up with those guys much and you could tell there were communication issues and people were making the wrong blocks exactly. So i'm gonna tell you this right now because i have a feeling next week. This is something we're going to be saying you can spin the results individual results in everything even team results of the preseason game any way you want if you think a player's going to be bad and they play well you can say that's because they blah blah blah blah if you have you know and if they don't play well see. I told you if you think players going to play well and they don't you it'd be like well it's the first game and it's this and they weren't playing with other players here there but if you think you know you know what i'm saying you can you can come up. You can justify what you already believe going into the game regardless of what happens and the biggest position that you're gonna do that with his quarterback my opinion. You know if you think if you think mason rudolph is terrible no matter what. He doesn't his game. You're gonna make an excuse of is really good. If you think mason rudolph is terribly terrible years. Say she. I told you but yet if you get if you would play really good you would have a reason. Why didn't mean anything. You know what i'm saying. It's so it's funny. You're not gay. And this is something i should have done. This is my number one and this has going to be sent now. You're not going to silence any critics and you're not going to persuade any any super optimistic people if it's not that's not gonna happen in this game. You're going to have reasons why what you think before and really was but then but if you go into the game not really expecting anything either way. You'll probably learned the most of what you can't. Yup i didn't take your number one. Okay good with the way. I just said that because i'm like man i should put that as number one or not you know..

"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.

"I'm not saying that what i'm saying. Is that what if we are learning about specific individual players. And that's where. I'm going to go with this podcast today before we get to that. I think it's worth noting that so far in camp. Everything has been geared up towards the hall of fame game the hall of fame game. That's gonna happen. Thursday august fifth in kano ohio against the dallas cowboys there. I mean you've heard. Mike tomlin talk about this ad nauseam. He talks about the quarterbacks in who's getting the work and who's getting more reps with the ones and the twos it's based on who is going to be starting in that hall of fame game. It's about the offensive line. Dan moore junior left. Tackle kendrick green at center. They're getting the majority of reps. Why because they want. They're going to be the ones that are gonna be starting in the hall of fame game. That is where everything has been going in terms of teamwork team drills team sessions. They want to get the players that are going to be playing a lot significant reps in the hall of fame game. they wanna get them repetitions. I have to think before. I move onto these individual players. I have to think that some of these players are probably going to be really really nervous going into this. Preseason going into these games even the hall of fame game. Is ben rothlisberger going to be nervous. No he's probably not even an address. But is someone like antoine brooks junior nervous. Maybe is someone like. Bj finney nervous. I would think so think about. Bj finish just general. Here's a guy that was an undrafted rookie at a kansas state. From the pittsburgh steelers his childhood his favorite team. He turns his backup..

"Two receivers they have listed or deontay johnson and you just misused her then the next up sorry three waters was almost give chase klay poll the three wide receivers start so it's johnson chase klay poll juju smith schuster. So i don't know exactly. They didn't designate any one of them being inside outside how they would do it. So it's very difficult to tell their but those were the three then. They had james washington behind the andre. Johnson he was with the second group with ray. Ray mcleod and cody white. Then the third group was rico. I think it's seattle tickets bussey. I'm not sure. But that's whichever one it is. Isaiah mccoy and anthony johnson and then the fourth on the list was matthew sexton and tyler simmons so those are the wide receivers. Lots of everything spread out there. They we'll go after wide. Receivers will go to tight end. They only listed one and the order they went was first eric braun. Second pat firm. Uth doesn't surprise anybody. They're the only thing that's really interesting. Harris who was third and steelers had zach. Gentry's third kevin raiders fourth dax. Raymond is fifth. So that's the tight end running back to no one's surprise nausea harris's i he's listed as the first running back then. The order goes what they're starting off with is then it goes snell junior anthony mcfarland junior jalen samuels kaylin balaj. Now if you've noticed someone's missing from that list you're like wait. I thought i thought that was a six to one. There is now trae edmonds. He's actually listed as the second player on the depth chart at fullback behind. Eric watt now that simply could have been that they didn't really want to go out to a six level at running back but also you have to remember. That treatments did play some fullback. When derek wall was injured last year not a lot but then again there. What didn't play a lot. Either in the steelers offense. So that's interesting. Let's go to the offensive line because we're gonna we're going to save the big one for last offensive line for the five spots. Were pretty much. We knew what they were going to be. Left tackle was chew chor. Four left guard kevin dodson right tackle zach banner. Right guard trae turner. What's really interesting for. The steelers is at center. They have jc hassen hours. The first team kendrick green is the second team and bj vinnie vinnie. Third in that group so chances are half an hour might be the name there because he started games for the steelers last year at that position. I don't know but it is interesting that it was half an hour and not finney. That was up there. Now when it comes to be j finney. He actually is on this list twice because he's as the third string center and he's also listed as the as the second team left guard behind kevin dotson. So let's go through these position about position on the line and left tackle. It goes to core for dan moore chaz green of collins at left guard. It's kevin dotson. Bj finney brandon walton center. I already said about do it again. Jc hassen our kendrick green and bj. Finney right guard trae. Turner rashad coward. Anthony coyle right. Tackle zach banner. Joe hague john naghlu so those are the offensive line the way it sits right now so if you were to look at that and just merely for the guys during the first two groups there's ten different players they're the steelers will probably keep nine guys so that's probably the best way. Look at it now. Let's go the last position on offense one. You might be waiting for not because of the top. Because how it goes afterwards quarterback the list goes ben rothlisberger mason rudolph d'alene haskins joshua dobbs so if we were wondering i was one personally that i wasn't ready to put haskins ahead adopt until i saw him on the field the steelers they have haskins down there. It might just be based on what they're planning to do the first week or that could be where he really is. We will see when the season rolls around or as the preseason gets deeper. Now let's go ahead and jump into the defense trying to keep this shortest possible. It's very interesting. How the steelers do the defensive line. They listed with three different positions defensive..

"Trinite. kim starts for most teams tuesday but at least some players have been reporting the camp in just about every nfl city. This week we have reporters everywhere. Ed word is in oxnard with the cowboys. Brook prior is with the steelers jordan ron covering the giants from the jersey shore. Apparently and that's where we're going to start with a little read and react actually going to start in pittsburgh where quarterback ben rothlisberger returns for his eighteenth season. One of the major storylines surrounding that team is how to protect. Its veteran quarterback brook prior has more on how the pittsburgh offensive line plans to build around big ben. There should be a theme for the pittsburgh steelers training camp this year. And that's if you build it they will block. At least that's the hope for the steelers to have five new faces on the offensive line not to mention a new position coach. Mike tomlin is not interested in a rags to riches narrative. Here after all he'll be the first to tell you that the standard is the standard and that all starts with rookie center kendrick green. Who took first team reps with the team at its opening training camp practice just a day ago when he drew pretty good reviews from quarterback ben rothlisberger afterward the rookie kind of reminded him of former center marquees pouncey. He said that green made all the right calls. You didn't fumble the snap between them. And look..

"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.

"He said kevin johnson had been moving from his natural right guard. Because of the presence of dave decastro would to castro's with decastro release datsuns future at right guard. I'm i'm going to my me to answer. I want get i go ahead. My answer is i think they're going to keep him at left guard. Because trade turner is a natural right guard and what he's played his career. And i think dotson is fine either way but i don't know that that set in stone i think all let's just say this i didn't have this as one of my five because i had other things that are more important but this would be one of those training camp questions that we would get that. It'll work itself out in training. Camp is dot dot dots moving to the right with with turner or something else that the left or are they gonna put turner and where where to. Castro wasn't keep dotson where they wanted to. Because honestly i could see dotson and szucs working well together a battery while again. I don't know so that's just one of those things that you know. They're going to figure it out. I i was right. Where you were with that one I think that dotson has more swing to his game than he had to have. He played a rocky play both last year. Yes so I could see if it worked out. He would stay at left guard and let trae turner play the right guard. But yeah that's why we go into me. That's why we have training camp. That's where we figure these things out. I can't remember who brought this up if it was another commented on the website or if it was jeffrey benedict comments of an article but the issue brought up where someone was criticizing kinder- green for only playing only having four games at center last year. Okay here's the deal. Kendrick green could play center or guard. I i need to look up. Who the name. There's another lineman for illinois. Who's going back this year. That was also a very good linemen. That could play center. Who could play guard but not as good as guard is what kendrick green offered so the question is do you get your two best lineman out there and even the one of them even though greed might have been the better center he was just by far the better guard in order to get them into positions. That's what you do. And that was that situation so some people that are like oh kindergarten didn't pay enough so it's that's why it's because of trying to get your best players on the field. It didn't mean that he couldn't do it anyway. Let's go to the next one. We've got steel dog. Eighty eight five bucks tip jar. Thank you very much you says love. The signing of ingram adds depth and will allow for rotation to keep guys fresh. That's exactly what we're saying there to get into that rotation but now instead of that you know i mean you had a nice rotation last year but now instead of that rotation guy being you know having to veterans and our rookie. Now you got to veterans and a second year guy. So you know we're really. If you think about it you could see some improvement me. I want to say better balance in the rotation. Yeah yeah exactly. Yeah that's that's exactly what what you need because even last year sometimes it seemed like well it was high smith on the one side for duprey but sometimes for what it was it. Was you know a dehnieh. Or you know. And they've done that in the past where they've rotated or j. row now he was around and stuff like that. Were kept the rotation. But one of the things. Jeffrey benedict pointed out is income can play both sides. You really can't get a good..

"Goodness we have so much news going on today. It's insane if you didn't hear by the way this is just kind of coming out. The i believe. I can't believe it. Kendrick green is siamese contract. Holy cow there. We go right here on. let's ride. Let's ride podcast kind of breaking news. this is from jason bernstein congrats to the fridge. Fifty-three that would be a kendrick rains. Twitter handle on signing his contract with the steelers so kudos to kendrick green. The kudos the steelers forgetting all nine of their draft picks locked up all my gosh. I can't believe it. it's it's finally done. Everyone's been asking me on this for weeks. What the heck's taking so long what the heck taking so long here it is here. It is finally done so good news. Congratulations to Kendrick green for sure on that that was And i've been waiting for that to happen. I talked about a lot about the pre rate that we had done all right so like i said he told me on twitter at j hartman underscore p. I t. every tuesday. I was a little bit late today. Getting this tweet out. Based on the fact that i was taking wallpaper off the wall in the house. Which by the way whoever invented wallpaper. I'd like to have a conversation with you. I'm sure they're not alive anymore but still that is kind of like cruel and unusual punishment. I've done it before. It's not my first time. But my gosh awful absolutely awful. If you're someone out there. I i just bought a house and i need to. I need to take the wallpaper off steak week. Take week in egypt chip away a little bit of the time anyways. So i've kind of forgot about it. I put the the tweet up. Wait but my writer. Diker obviously never let me down. And some people. Like for instance the first question from michael beck. He's mr blue checkmark. Michael beck because look at me. That's a this is michael. This is why i envisioned michael on twitter is because now he has a blue check and he's verified and he thinks he's so important he says jack and with michael valet. He's who's the most annoying number on the bts's slack channel and you're not allowed to save me so well michael that's it. Those are just now listening. Like what is the slack channel. It is a way for an organization to communicate. And you can have an app on your phone. You can also have it on your laptop or desktop. It's a great way for someone like me. Who runs a website and has that might say in the podcast as well. We have channels and we can definitely go in. And it's one of those situations where they have A we all chime in and sometimes it's just for fun. I had to be honest though. I'm gonna say brian. Anthony davis is. I can't say michael back. I'm gonna go with brian. Ent davis is the most annoying member on the slack channel the good brian. Will he so sporadic okay. So hill chime in with news that is. I don't know two hours old and we've already published the story. Had it on facebook. Page user clanking in brian to send the link. Hey guys did you see again. And we have this article sometimes. Activating brian's also a little bit late on a lot of things. Still i if i depict that to all day every i like all the people on our staff short. Eric says the league didn't do much in regards to the whole brady. Mc l. injury not being reported yet. The steelers got reprimanded quite a bit for not disclosing. There's favortism at its finest extenuating circumstances so When you look at this the league didn't do much regret he's talking about the brady he Now it's coming out that he tore his mc l. Have surgery in. The offseason was pretty legitimate knee injury. And he's asking what the heck because the steelers with ben roethlisberger doesn't nineteen his elbow and they sit. There was never reported. They were david. Castro's injury that was another big story. Which oh my gosh. This ankle injury was lingering. And now you've got cut because of its What is the deal there in. So i can see where eric is thinking. Well what's going on here. Where where are these two sides coming from. And i honestly don't know that much about the buccaneers story. I don't know if he was ever on the injury report. That's what they need. That's what they're looking for when pittsburgh got reprimanded because of lady on del. This was his groin injury. I think it was two thousand sixteen when they got reprimanded were fine. They might have gotten to that. It's because they never reported the injury so in this case if they did report the brady had a knee injury and even if you just missed portions of practice than absolutely. They're fine they're fine. That's what it all comes down to. It comes down to the team saying okay. So let's go back to jim. Sixteen news that okay. Hey lady on coin injury. We don't think it's gonna hurt him too much in terms of participation helped he should be good to go then. They're fine than they talked about. They put it on an injury report. That's the big thing kit. Ask confident in our tackle depth after chaz green signing reports of dan more being slow to learned many camp not as surely developmental only this year. Are we comfortable with only. Hey backup. Chaz his nfl experience but injuries saxon pressures allowed or not good. This is this is tough meeting answer for multiple reasons. Hey does have a lot of experience and chas. his numbers. Don't look great on paper at the same time. These are different systems. You have a new coordinator new offensive line coach. I'm going to hold judgment on any offensive line whether that's kendrick greenwood. That's pj finney. Joe hague you name. It doesn't matter..

"Players In order to have guys that he thought could do what he wanted to do bass which isn't a bad idea but what he did wasn't really that good to get by with the players anyway. He was also the first person i ever made a mean about. That was funny but the difference. I see it matt. Canada is it was something. I don't know where. I caught this if it was someone on. Nfl network. i'd watch full shows or anything. But i'll see clips and things on twitter. When matt canada was hired. One of the one of the people said it might have been espn or something. Non-local pittsburgh person said matt candidate is someone that. Nfl coaches have been. You know kind of tweaking. His brain about bringing the college game. You know implementing certain things for the college game to the nfl for a while. The pittsburgh steelers are the ones who are actually giving him a shock to do it. That's the one thing and the other thing is you had a year with him i. He didn't go straight from college to being offensive coordinator or head coaches the other guys. He actually eased in a little bit as the quarterbacks coach for year. I think that'll help. But it's still not certain that's still a really good question. My i'm going to answer this by asking you both a question. Gee think that man canada's offense is based off of gimmicks in any way shape or form. Brian what do you think not really no. But if they were who cares can win. Fence was based on gimmicks. And they did some well with some of those gimmicks. Slowly it trick. Not a gimmick. Okay then he makes he mixed some mix some stuff in. He makes them trips in. Okay let me let me let me ask this again. Because i'm not sure if you understand what i'm thinking with gimmicks not understand that when i think of gimmicks i'm thinking of like a chip kelly style offense. We were talking about looking at the sideline. You see cards. You're gonna play. You're running rapid straight up like that is the way that they just completely unorthodox so cameras and hunt with legal inserted malarkey. They both loved to use trick. Plays but it wasn't a gimmick offense or a very standard in terms of professional style. Offense do you think canada's offense is more professional style or more gimmicks. I think it's more of a professional style. Absolutely not a gimmick offense in my opinion. Okay dave what do you think i would say. I mean we still haven't seen it. You know what i'm saying. We're based on what we know. Now what we expect from it. I'm gonna say it could be. It could be. It's pushing the envelope more than others than others would towards being quote unquote gimmicky. But i don't think it's going there. Because i i don't think it's abandoning. The basic principles of what would be considered a pro offense. I'm i don't. I'm not gonna sit here and pretend like i know i tell you what i do know is. I've read jeffrey. Benedict's offense have breakdown articles this offseason where he's gone into really didn't fascinating just to learn about football. He's gone into everything from how matt keenan likes to run play action. the the shifts the pre-snap movement and he literally take one play and he will diagnose everything that's happening with every it's pretty. I'm telling you if you haven't seen him good film rooms action on the website. Scroll down on behind the curtain dot com. Click on steelers film ramin. you'll find them In it's not gimmicky. In my opinion it's doubt matchups. It's based on matchups. He sees a match up that he wants to exploit and he finds a way to do it in its unique in. It's different but i don't think that's gimmicky and i don't think gimmicky. I think that's very intelligent. That's forward thinking and that's something the steelers haven't had as an offensive coordinator. Since maybe some of those coordinators i mentioned in malarkey was because i don't think todd haley was forward thinking either. He was very reactionary. And so is going to be different. I was gonna say. Maybe bruce arians but all all. I wasn't forgetting ben. Killed all the time you know you. That's but as as graduate says in the live chat asked that question after week or two even of the preseason and he's we have no idea how ben and canada constructing what they like to do. It's gonna take time it's going to evolve it has to evolve if it doesn't evolve will be randy lane two point. Oh because you never any feeders. Offense never evolved once since he was Hired as the offensive coordinator okay. So we've kind of gotten attract every those a great question by george question are so. Let's go back into best. Moore's we need to stay with best. Brian or we can go over the worst. It's up to you go ahead. Let's go to worst gay. And i'm going to continue the kendrick green trade train here and what i'm going to stay with kendrick. Green is the worst case. Scenario is that he is still a project not ready to move from guard to center full-time there. Yeah i got it from that perspective of guard versus center. I see that. I get to me though brian i get. I think i agree. One hundred percent but is vinnie. Ready is like the next part of that if any is oguz capable than okay if he's a project and they can wait a year or two. We'll see and i think dave kind of covered that in his when he was talking about the center for sure. All right dave. What's yours worse. worst case scenario. I hate to even say because you don't like to use the word but let's just say positions where the steelers are thin. They get thinner. I'll just say injuries day. Because that's i mean you're going to deal with injuries no matter what you want to deal with injuries. But there are a few key positions that if there's an injury you're much i mean i hate to say well be you know they're really anyway so if you're dealing with something even if you're talking about a reserve person not being available you could really be in trouble based on a a specific injury. I can't remember and i talked about it. What at twenty twenty eighteen. When the steelers went most of the season with just three inside linebacker outside linebackers. I mean because like people like the denny but he was on he went on. I r early. It was just cicchillo. And bud watt and that was it i mean and they went with. They've rolled with just three and they actually got by with it. And i i. I mean they didn't have anyone else in the roster. That's what's crazy and you're really playing with fire that circumstance. But i'm just hoping that if they if and when i should say when they suffer some injuries. It's not one of the positions where there already thin. That's a good one brian. Aiding to say about that. We need someone who's going to bring up injuries at some point. And that's that's the easy. One and i fully concur with dave on that one my worst case scenario and this is i didn't put these in any specific order. Is someone or some people. Some players plural shows up to camp out of shape I hate that it. I hated it. When casey hampton used to do for bill cower they will do the run test and he would fail it in cower. Talk about how hamptons on can be practicing today because he's going to be doing conditioning. Work on the sideline. I just know that. Mike tomlin more so than bill. Coward preaches conditioning conditioning conditioning conditioning. Show up in shape showed up in shape. 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..

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.

"That is twenty seven to three where they ended up losing the super bowl. That was after they had a huge lead in the third quarter of twenty seven to three. Sorry two thousand seventeen and was the denver broncos at point five seven eight. They went five and eleven. This is now where you get a stretch of teams not making the postseason. Two thousand eighteen was green bay. Packers point five three nine. They went six nine and one two thousand. Nineteen was the oakland raiders. at point. five three nine. They went seven nine. Two thousand twenty last year was the new england patriots with point five three seven. They went seven nine but we also know part of that was they had a big change at a key position so it kind of goes in spurts it was. You know the steelers won. The super bowl was kind of crazy. Did that with artist schedule. Then you had four straight years of teams not making the playoffs. The last of those years the team that we had a winning record then you had four years of teams make the playoffs with the last one of those was a team going the super bowl while the other team only won two games. Then you have another big stretch of teams not even getting a five hundred record having the hardest schedule so you can see. It's kind of all over the place. It's kind of like the step up and do what you have to do to win those games and your battle-tested ready to go or is a too difficult and you can't win the games. It's kind of what it is. I will say this. I went back to two thousand eight because frankly finding the data before that was difficult. I tried but i'm just like you know what we'll just stop it with the steelers. Since that was the question but the last two times the steelers had the most difficult schedule in the nfl. They made the playoffs and not only that they wanna game in the playoffs. So take that for what it's worth. We'll see if they can do that as they go into this year off with the hardest schedule with a point. Five seven four off opponent. Winning percentage based on their two thousand twenty records so that is the data behind that. I hope you enjoy those numbers. I hope you enjoyed the talk about the steelers. History at the with a third round picks. And what do they start do they do. They start the whole season things like that. Absolutely crazy and thank you for for bearing with me through my little bit of some reminiscent at the beginning of this episode with some various things. But hey i'm happy to that. I'm here cut loose with the steel curtain dot com. Make sure you are checking us out at the website. There's so much stuff going on there. It's we're trying to cover. Ot as yes.

We are coming at you with everything that we can bring right now We're on our way. Summer is starting which means yet. Get sad when is over. But when summer's over you're talking football talking.

"Goes back to the kevin colbert era. That's the only taught. I'm gonna stop listening to mir by year because still don't have the answer to the question. There was twenty six players. not this doesn't count kindergarten. Twenty six players from two thousand two thousand and twenty draft in the third round by the pittsburgh steelers out of those twenty six players. Eleven of them were inactive for their first game. Also out of those players. Eleven of them did start some time as a rookie. But that meant that fifteen of them did not so. This is what you're getting. In year one from third round picks so kendra green comes in starter the whole time. Wow that's crazy well. So what's the answer dave. When did it happen well. Here's some people that we could mention that maybe how about nineteen seventy eight when the feelers third round pick was punter craig colquitt. He played in every game with the pattern every game. But technically punters aren't starters you could say that's the answer but my goodness if you take hundred in the third round he better be your partner. How about nineteen seventy two tight end. John mc mac. Big mac. And i don't know if it's mcenery making you know how i put your names. He started in week two and then started every week after that he. He started thirteen of fourteen games as a rookie. Did not start week. One but then was the starter from that point on crazy even in nineteen seventy third round. pick cornerback. Mel blunt hall of famer did not start until week five. If you wanna go back to find a steelers third round draft pick. That started every game a rookie. You're going back to nineteen fifty three linebacker. Marv matuzek say that right. That's m. u. s. z. Ak he started. Twelve of twelve games for the steelers. He was selected to the pro bowl as a rookie as a third round. Pick yet an interception that year two fumble recoveries and was a pro bowler in nineteen fifty. Three that's what you have to go. Here's the one thing that i have to tell you. It's really crazy about this. So that's where you have to go to find the last steelers third round picked. It started every game of their rookie here or that even started the week one and kept starting from that point on. That's where you gotta go back in one thousand nine hundred eighty three as the steelers third round pick marv to screw it up again but matuzek still think that's right. he was the twenty ninth overall. Pick in the nfl draft. That's how few brown players there were per round. He was the twenty nine th overall pick and he was a third round selection. That's where you have to go back. In order to find a pittsburgh steeler that was taking in the third round and started. That's crazy. I just wanted to know a quick answer for an article. And that's where it took me. So that's what we're doing. That's what it is. It doesn't mean that there weren't fourth round or fifth round picks. Started right away. I was looking just in the third row and that was the answer kind of blew my mind so of kendrick green could come in and win this job in start week one and stay as the starter. It'll be the first time for the pittsburgh steelers since nineteen fifty three. Wow all right. we're going to go out and take a break that for sexual went long. We're gonna take a break. We're gonna come back. I've got to use your question we're going to do. We're going to talk about that. Whole pittsburgh steelers ha having the heart schedule the nfl. So we're going to see that that's really going to do for them this year and.

"The jumbo package. So he technically started. That was luke's so there's the answer the last player to start week one but the question was did he keep. Starting answer was no. He got a fool on started week. Twelve but i think he might have one other start sprinkled in there where they started the jumbo package as well but he didn't actually started game two week twelve. I don't know that we can really count him. But that is the answer the question. He did technically get a start in week. One and you'll find that it's going to be a long time until we find another one. So i'm like i'm still looking at the snap counts and everything else. What's going on a camp sutton in two thousand seventeen. He was injured as so he didn't even play week one. He started in week. Fifteen james conner. He played eight snaps in week one his rookie year that this was also two thousand seventeen. He had four rushes for eleven yards. He didn't get a starting to a second year. Keep on going. J von hargrave. That was probably the answer. Most people thought oh well. Hargrave started right away. Technically giovane hargrave did not start week. One because the steelers only had two defensive lineman on the field He was starting in sub package He started in week two but he was spot spot on an off starting throughout the year. Depending on how the steelers defense started hargraves. The answer well not really because one of the truth. He only played thirteen snaps in week. One he was the nose tackle but the steelers really kept him off the field but they didn't have them play. I don't think he played any defensive tackle to start at all because they were really keeping a snaps down. He did not reach over fifty percent of the snaps on defense until we five. So that's not really the answer either with von her grave. So that's another one to keep going back. That was twenty six. Two thousand fifteen sammie coates inactive didn't start until year two thousand fourteen dri archer. He played fourteen offensive snaps which was twenty percent of the snaps in week. One he had one rush for four yards and he was never a starter. Get then yet. Markus wheaton from two thousand thirteen. He played seven snaps in week. One all he did was returned. Kicks when it came to the stats department. And he but he did play seven offensive snaps at say and i think he got a start in week four but it was one of those random starts. Two thousand twelve. Sean spence yet. We should all know about that what he didn't get to play it all. Its first two years after he had that horrific injury is in the preseason. So he didn't really count. I kinda have to stop there because two thousand twelve. that's all the further back snap counts. Go where they kept. Good track of snaps. Where pro football reference has the number of snaps played so. That's it where i can look at. Oh what did they become any snaps. Do they play. Can't can't do that any farther. And i'm still looking for for any third round pick that started and kept starting in week one for the steelers so i i had to keep going and the next one was a curtis brown. Defensive back He was inactive was never a starter in the nfl then you Emmanuel sanders his first game as a rookie at one kick return and he wasn't a starter into week. Seventeen is rookie year k. Two thousand nine there was three. Three third round picks in two thousand nine crab. Craig berbick was a practice squad guys. Rookie year Mike wallace had three catches for thirty two yards but wasn't a starter until week. Seven and then keenan lewis. He didn't he didn't get any kind of stats. Think he was there for specialty. He wasn't even a starter until year. Three get going back. Bruce davis he was inactive. Never started out with two thousand eight thousand seven matt spaeth. He did have one catch for five yards which was a touchdown in his rookie season. He did start in week two but he was kind of one of those on again off. Again starters depends if they started with two tight end or not he was. He's someone that was close. You can talk about mass. Matt speights contributing. Then you have two thousand and six anthony smith. He had three tackles but didn't start to week. Thirteen also in two thousand six willie reed wide receiver. He was inactive. He was never a starter. Two thousand five tracks trai essex. He was inactive week one. He didn't start to week. Eleven max starks. He was in two thousand and four. He was inactive his first week as as a rookie. He was not a starter until year. Two if you hear that crumpling noise that's me flipping the page because that's how far backwards still going k. Two thousand and two chris. Hope four tackles didn't star game till year. Three two thousand. There was two players in the third round. There was kendrick clancy he had. He was a defensive tackle. He had no starts. Our notes are no stats and wasn't a starter until year. Two and then two thousand was also Hank petite who was only a kick returner. He was never a starter that goes back to the kevin colbert era. That's the only taught. I'm gonna stop listening to mir by year because still don't have the answer to.

Craig berbick J von hargrave kevin colbert Markus wheaton Bruce davis Mike wallace twenty percent Matt speights Sean spence thirteen snaps Hank petite two players eleven yards Thirteen Hargrave five yards Twelve anthony smith hargraves seven snaps

"kendrick green" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"This is a little bit taking some time here at the beginning in the show but i have to give a big shoutout today because today is my eldest sons tenth birthday. My oldest son. Gabriel is ten years old today. He is my middle child after children. He's the one in the middle. But he but i have to say he's my eldest son because i have a daughter and then two sons and he's turning ten and it's crazy because i always remembered with his birthday. That was my last day in what was supposed to be my life long career i took i had spent ten years for those of you know i'll share a little bit about myself. I actually i have a degree in physics and a minor in mathematics and also that i have a certificate for secondary education. Along with that is is what i went to college for and i loved physics. I love math. And they'll reason. I switched from math. Physics at the last minute before went to college is because physics was math with a purpose. So that was it. I still really love numbers as you can tell with the staff geeky but I wanted to go into teaching as much. Because i wanted to be coach. That's what i wanted to do. I wanted to coach. So i got a job right out of college and i was began teaching and coaching. I coached high school football and indoor and outdoor track. I did that for seven years and when my daughter was born what my last semester. I wasn't coaching. High school actually coached at the local college but when my daughter was born i took a leave of absence from coaching because she was born right before football season started and therefore i knew that i just wasn't. Luckily she was born early a little bit and would she have been born late. It would have been already when practices started so i took a year off from coaching. And then that ended up being two and then three and then when my son was born actually took a leave of absence from teaching and a semester turned into a year turned into to turn into three and now turned into ten which allows me to do behind the curtain. So happy birthday gabriel. I'm glad that i had a chance to To to to take my turn after my wife took a turn we were. And then i won the flip for the third child Of of of spending time with him when he was born and it turned into this which is fantastic. So now out here. I am talking to you all on a thursday morning. You're like that's enough dave. Let's talk steelers. Yes here's what's crazy. I'm reminiscent we're gonna be reminiscent even more. Because what we're gonna be talking about today is kendra green kendrick green. But we're not gonna be talking about kindergarten. We're gonna be talking about what kendrick bourne could be. Katie green is my choice to win the job. Day one of the twenty twenty one regular season in other words week. One starter at center for the steelers. I just think that he's the best option. I know a lot of people would be any. Bj finney is a backup. That's what he was with the steelers and when he left the steelers struggled to even be that anywhere else so to come in and think he's going to be an answer as a starter. I think putting too much on him. I like bj finney. I think he's a great person. I like him in the role that he's in. I just don't know that he's the guy that you want to turn to totally if he's got start for awhile until green is ready. That's what it needs to be. But it's not like i think. Bj fini's the long-term answer at the position. where i think kinder- green is so you're like well. What are you talking. so much about. Kinder- green kindergarten was the steelers third round. Pick this year. And i went to do an article this weekend. This didn't come from a question from a user. This came from a question that i ended up posing myself. I went to write an article this weekend as much as i started diving into it. Either send a message to jeff. And i'm like this article coming later. This has got to be static this week. This is absolutely crazy. What i found. I was just looking for a simple answer and it was not a simple answer. And you're you're gonna love this. My simple question. That i had thought was a simple answer was okay kendrick. Green third round pick. What if he starts week one and then starts week two and starts the whole season. Who was the last third round. Pick to do that for the steelers. Wow you want to talk about having the dive deep the depth this had to go. I started with twenty. Twenty and i was working backwards. Came and lets you see how it worked out. You probably already have in your mind. Oh it might have been so and so it could have been so and so. Let's get this answer. So twenty. Twenty alex smith week one. He wasn't a starter he didn't start until week. Twelve after by depre- got hurt. He played ten snaps his first game. He had one tackle. So that's what i'm looking at. You know how many snaps you played in week one. What kind of stats did you have. When did you really become a starter. That was alex meant the year. Before was the andre johnson. He played twenty four snaps which was thirty six percent of the offensive snaps for the steelers and he had three catches for twenty five yards. But he didn't actually get a what would be called a start until week three but he played all the time. So you like okay. We're getting there. But he didn't really play a significant portion of the snaps until much later in the season the other two thousand nine hundred third round pick justin lane. He didn't play a single defensive snaps his rookie year and he's yet to become starter. So that's just that was what was. He wasn't even active for week. One you're gonna find this being a theme if you go to two thousand eighteen. There was two third round picks there as well mason. Rudolph inactive wasn't act of the entire season. He didn't start until year two and he wouldn't even started at. It's ben roethlisberger got hurt then. The other third round pick was ju- core for he played seventeen snaps which was twenty percent of the steelers offensive snaps in week. One he didn't have any stats. He was offensive linemen and he technically started week. One that's correct chook. Sikora for started week one of his rookie year. You're like why only played twenty percent of the snaps. He was the jumbo tight end and the steelers opened their season.

Rudolph andre johnson Gabriel twenty percent gabriel ten years seven years kendrick bourne thirty six percent twenty five yards bj finney today twenty four snaps seventeen snaps thursday morning ten snaps Sikora first game jeff three

"kendrick green" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"On thursday morning. it's june. We are rolling through the year. It's funny. I don't wanna wish away this summer but my goodness i just wanna see the pittsburgh steelers playing football so i mean. Summer is great put. Yeah before you know it. That's the only good thing about summer being over as you get into football season but here we are. It's nice to be with you again here on a thursday morning if you did not catch it on mondays. Let's ride jeff. Hartmann talked about that. We did have a winner in our contest that we did from last week. I gotta get a little bit of a story a little bit of a disclaimer. From this thing. We are trying to come up with an idea of what we should do for a contest and jeff wanted to do something where everyone had to listen to all five morning shows. I'm like well just do something crazy. Were you just say a player's name. And they have to write down the jersey number and therefore at the end of the week. It's a ten digit code. Everyone who enters the ten digit code and will draw from those names. Will jeff wanted to do something where it was the first one to get it. And he's like well. What do you mean by that. And i just as a joke throughout the names which ended up being. What we did of hines ward. Joe greene james conner lawrence timmons terry bradshaw. And they're like okay. That sounds interesting. I see what you mean like. Come on bryan. Because this with jeff and brian neither of you guys get this like what. I'm like. Look at the numbers and then finally jeff just cracked up laughing. You know sending lol's and stuff on our slack channel with with the three of us where we were doing that and he's like oh we're using this. This is the real thing. So it's not that. I thought that that this that we should have used that code for those of you don't know what that code is. It's eight six seven five three. Oh nine for one to so the answer was for those of the didn't enter it. It was a jenny from the burgh. It was another word. It was a reference to the song jenny jenny. By tommy to tone. Or is it tony to remember this tommy and then for one to the area code for pittsburgh some other good answers like i didn't even realize it that would every digit from zero to nine and didn't repeat but just in a different order so there was a good answers but that was the answer. I don't know who. Jeff did not tell me who the actual winner was. And that's okay. I didn't have to know but that's the contest. We'll see if we have other contests. I'm excited we'll be doing our survivor pool. In this fall It'll be the third year doing it. And i have another sign football. I even have it in my possession already. I wanna say who it is. But i'm not going to so if anything else you gotta make sure you're going to behind the curtain dot com your one stop shop for all the pittsburgh steelers just to get in on our contests and things like that so we try to as much stuff like that as we can But that's a lot of fun that will be doing survivor. Lee this fall. I will lay out that for you on stat geek on the time gets close. But it's interesting. this week. This week was was kind of crazy was has me reminiscent a lot. It really does because first of all on monday. Which was memorial day i. It was the very last day of may. And i was counting it up that it was thirty three months that i've been with biden's steel curtain dot com thirty three months. And you're like why do you say that i'm like well. It's three months shy of three years. And the only reason i care to count that number was because i actually had my two thousand article published from behind the curtain so Yeah to two thousand articles in less than three years is out how it's gone but when you move it when you're moving on up into stuff there that's kind of what you have to do in order to get the job done. Which really on tuesday was the big reminder of. It was one year ago that i was the editor although my first day of being editor all by myself when jeff harmon had stepped away in case. You're wondering when i heard there was a chance to get jeff back. I went out of my way to get him back for those of you that. Listen to our morning podcasts. If you're listening to me to add to try to get to. Jeff i get it. I mean jeff does a fantastic job. He's a wonderful editor. We kind of her handling these responsibilities together but i still yield his expertise and he does a fantastic job. And i'm really happy that it was only two months that we were without him and there were able to get him back so that now means it was ten months since jeff triumphant return and that was also on tuesday was the five year anniversary of when i got interesting email. I was actually on vacation with my kids. At great wolf lodge it at the one in williamsburg virginia and i started getting all these messages from friends of mine that were steeler fans are like did you check your email. I'm like no. I checked by email. And it's where the steelers they sent out if you're on their mailing list they email you out. Various things with the steelers pro shop and other stuff. And what do you know when this email they were. They had just started promoting their father's day. Line of stuff because June first that's the end of the father's day stuff. And what do you know there. It was in this email. It said for the superfan dad and it was a picture of me where they take my picture at the i can't remember what they call it. It's the draft party. It's not family fest. Because that's the thing that they haven't august but fun fest might be. I'm not sure but they. They asked to take my picture mature and it was a picture of me that they used to try to sell their father's day apparel because it said for the students that for the super. I mustn't stupid for the super fan. That's where my email game from. That's why i'm Steelers superfan dad. My twitter my email. But it's too many digits to say steelers so that's why i have to say. Stl are and what's crazy. Is i have to do this today..
