"See what else we have here. Here's one from of guinea. Crosby another one. He says the steelers problems commitment to the running game. A new back will change that. Well i guess it all depends if matt candidates shiny new toy at running back and he wants to use them and he sees it as. He's a bona fide weapon. But yeah but. I don't know if commitment was the problem last year i think it was more The line struggles. I mean you can talk about commitment all you want. And i've heard people that craig welfare. Who would know a lot more than me. Because he's a veteran and he was a veteran in the in the league but he always said you know it's like you know hammering iraq. You got keep hammering it and hammering pounding and pounding and pounding until you crack it and that might be true but you know they. They spent Most of the second half of the of the season getting zero to less than zero of a push during running Commitment changes that. I think maybe talent changes that. Maybe a different coach changes that have commitment to the running game. Changes the fact that that they weren't getting Getting a push You know people talk about The steelers line of the late os and how they could get away with with. All these undrafted free agents lower lower round picks And and how you can you can coach them up but as it turned out what they really needed was to draft a lot of offensive. Linemen with premium picks. I think it's not so much commitment as it is the upgrade. See what else you have your. Here's one from havi are maury and he says anthony. I think you're right. I think they want to get in front of the quarterback situation. Also well i don't know When know getting getting in front of it. I don't know i mean if you bring a guy in and let them sit for year That might benefit them as far as learning the playbook but but there's nothing like being out there on the field and Seeing live bullets so You know. I think if they wanted to move on from ben and go after a veteran quarterback i think they would have just cut him by now and and and maybe made a trade for stafford if they could have found a way to do that or a winter again if they a found a way to to make that work with their cap problems i think stafford would have been a much easier. Get as far as a salary cap then than than wins. But i think if they were if they were determined to to do that. They've done that by now So again if you bring ben back. You're not going to draft the quarterback in the first round. It's just. I mean you're not gonna find anybody by twenty four anyway. I don't think unless you know unless you get into a situation where you have. Lamar jackson type talented falls there. Hey maybe that changes everything but but And then you know. I think they can they can. I think they're going to address the quarterback situation. When the time is right i think when the time is right. We'll be when ben is gone. I as i've said repeatedly. I think they learned her lesson between nineteen eighty-four in two thousand four when they didn't really aggressively pursue high end talent at the quarterback position. A lot of nice team especially in the nineties but they always came up short in the big games. Because you head guys like Neil o'donnell going troy aikman cordell going up against john elway But when when when when they found a decided to go with bennett and they needed mr rooney to persuade the do so they weren't even gonna gonna draft. Ben reportedly I think that changed everything. I think that showed them at look. This is what we have to do this. This is where we start. Doesn't start with defense if you wanna if you want to start over and rebuild concerned with the fence does run game stretch with the quarterback position i think a forgery long they they relied on on on build entertainment on defense and a running game and it worked as far as as putting some good teams on the field but it didn't work when it came to bringing home that lombardy and once they just once they once they got banned That that that enabled them to to become champions again. So i think they're going to. They're going to get in front in front of the situation when benn retire. That's just that's just a thought process so on that note. I'm gonna build you all do for this for this weekend. it was. It was a fun show. I was in spirit show. I really liked it. I i felt like i didn't ramble too much. So i'm pleased and i hope you guys headed good time to and i and i appreciate all all the super chats all the donations all the great commentary and the great questions and i will talk to you on monday with brian. Anthony davis but until then have a great weekend and as always go steelers..

"Want then back then. They want ben back in will contact me soon to address his cap situation as we shared since he season ended. We are happy to creatively adjusts his contract to help them build the best team possible a year ago. Ben wasn't sure if he could throw again but he battled back to get twelve wins in his eighth division title of his career. They loss team down the stretch and that doesn't sit well for him so the fire burns strong in. There is plenty of gas in the tag. Yeah ryan toner. You tell us what's up you give us that good lip service man. Well guess what. I'm not going to get excited about. Anything until someone signs on the dotted line whether it's art rooney the second signing the check for rothlisberger this season and he plays the rest of the season. And then he's done or whether it's rothlisberger going ahead and actually. I don't know getting a two year extension one year extension a three year extension. I don't know but still until someone does something some action here people. Give me some action. We actually had some action the other day when cam heyward restructured his contract sweet. That's action. that's something that's going on. I liked that i liked. We're not talking about it. we're doing it. This is just being drawn out and it's going to continue to be drawn out now. Some people have their suspicions as to. What's going on keighley one dave scofield co editor behind steel curtain. He thinks that this is all based on the seventeenth game. What's going to happen with the seventeenth game that throws and there have been article written about it articles on the website behind so dot com written about that topic. And and what does it mean for the salary cap. What does it mean for player contracts and he said straight up. I'll quote on quote. I still think the hold up. Seventeen game issue. So maybe that's what it is. Maybe it's just kind of semantics at this point but can we please knock it off with these reports. I mean it comes down to the same day the same day that rothlisberger reportedly needs with art rooney the second in that source through dulack. That's not coming from anyone else. The steelers did not put out a tweet from their official verified account saying we met with ben today it went well. They didn't say that. This is jerry. Dulack of the post gazette. You're saying hey sources tell me met. They thought a one well and then all of a sudden toner he speaks out now he now goes on the. I guess you would put it as the offensive and goes to a deacon kabbalah and says oh well you know we talked and they're going to get back to the contract. What you just said is a whole lot of nothing. You said everything you finished with the fire burns strong and it doesn't sit well with ben. He's sorry that's what he's saying. But in reality you just completely glossed over the most important part the contract the money. It's about the money it's not all about the money but that's still a part of it. That's still a part of it. Rothlisberger is gonna want his. He's always wanted his. He has gotten contracts that no one thought that he would get. I mean there have been times where people kind of projected that rothlisberger get x. Or y. amount in a contract with certain number of years and it almost always supersedes what everyone thought that he was gonna get. They'd say. I think ben could probably get around ten million a year. He gets thirteen. Or i think the ben could get you know six or seven year deal ten year deal and you're thinking man. This is insane. toners great agent. He is a great agent. He knows what he's doing. He takes care of his guys especially his guy rothlisberger. He knows how to play the pr game. So right when kevin colbert comes out last week. And he says we'll up to see and has brian. Anthony davis said it on the steelers preview. And i agree one hundred percent. It was him playing bad cop. Good cop bad cop. Kevin colbert's bad cop now. And i'm going to be the guy that kind of throws some fire on the den rothlisburger returning flame but throw some water. Sorry returning flame. But now toners i will wait a second. They're bashing my guy. I gotta do something bad. We gotta do somethin'. We can't just sit here and be there punching bag. We gotta do something and so what does he do hey. Add i got a statement for you can put it out there. Can you put it on the nfl network. Sure why not. Ben roethlisberger is you bet. We're going to put that on the reds going to be the first thing we're talking about tonight and tomorrow morning here. We go ryan toner. Speaks talking about ben rothlisberger. Yeah we still need to talk about that. Contract is that important. Is it important that you know. We'll cook. contact me to address his cap situation gigamon. We're happy to adjust his contract to help them build the best team possible. Okay you just glossed over everything. This is a pr move folks. It's a pr move and someone that's just reading. Yes he's going to be back. I think it's great that he's gonna be back. I said that was the best case scenario. All along. i said ben coming back would be great. It's going to give him the best chance to win. Games in twenty twenty one period. It's just the way it is. You should realize this. The guy did look pretty good for eleven games and some of the games. They lost all on him either. They tremendous amount of drops. Don't need to get into that. So that's what's going on. What i want from the steelers right now. Little less talk guys. And let's get a lot more action as mr toby. Keith would say a little less talk and a lot more action. Can we save the pr lip service for the week. Maybe gentlemen that'd be great. Thanks yeah about that all right. It's mailbag time after this break is gonna open up mail bag. Got the mail bag now..

"About to get good. Things are about to get fun. We've been talking about a few legend, so at least I should say some winners tonight. Started off the show one big Ben Roethlisberger and the lukewarm the tepid response that he got from the general manager of the Steelers when it comes down to his return. Kevin Colbert was just kind of like, Yeah, we just got to figure some things out is like a Whoa, okay? I don't know if that's some type of posturing, but we'll see. Right before we went to break last hour. We took some time to talk about our and Rogers and whether or not he gets the respect that he deserves for his great career, what he's been able to do. In and four Green Bay. I don't know if they've been able to help him out as much as he has helped them out. One of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But Tonight. Speaking of all time No in certain parts of the country. We have now flipped over into Thursday. But on February 17th Michael Jordan. Was born. 1963. He also shares a birthday with the great Jim Brown. But Michael Jordan obviously still tons of influence in the game of basketball. I know people wish he had more success as owner of the Charlotte Hornets. That's not necessarily Okay. But let's see what happens with ball. Maybe Michael Jordan finally got someone who will work out. But when you think about what Michael Jordan has done on the basketball court, I mean, I could go on forever. And I won't We know one of the greatest, if not the greatest man to step out onto a court. Time will tell if someone fills those shoes or takes them. I think that sucks because, like I say everyone convey great and their own way. But because tonight Is Wednesday, rolling on into Thursday. It's a new top six list. And I wanted to give you a special one. Because shoutouts to super producers to Kovacs It really bowls down, too. Who are some of the best players. Since Michael Jordan retired for good in 2000 and three And I mean, we know he was competitive, even on his way out. He was inducted and and went in more than 10 years ago. But he even left folks with these words. This was the end of Michael Jordan's retirement speech. Don't look at this moment as a defining end my relationship with the game of basketball. It's simply.

"In 2021 robbers. Burgers already said he's willing to and they know they're going to have to work something out. But I think there's a reason why the GM Kevin Colbert there in Pittsburgh, was rather noncommittal about Roethlisberger, playing his 18th season with the team last week. 39 years of age. He's the best option at the position. On the roster. But it was pretty clear come late November December time this season. That man. That kind of a run. 16 now reportedly leaning towards 17 regular season games. Had 39 years old. Ben's not your Tom Brady. Aaron Rodgers s kind of guy. You know he's not eating the avocado ice cream. He's not taking ridiculous care of himself. I think Russell Wilson's in that mold. You know you're spending close to a million dollars on your body. Ben doesn't really strike me as that kind of God. There's pictures of bed in the middle of the offseason looking like Grizzly bear. Wandering out of the woods and you're saying, Whoa! That dude's gonna play quarterback. In the NFL this year. You're serious. And I think there's a reason for Pittsburgh's who not only be looking in the draft But be a serious At least conversationalist in some of these trade scenarios. Now, Pittsburgh's kinda hamstring themselves in this sense, 41 million against the cat. You've got to have him on the squad. Rework that contract. So you have some flexibility moving forward 2021 sealers, Almost half the have been.

"So have that coming to you in about two hours. Plenty of going on. I mean, right before I went on air. Fernando Autopsies, Junior. This guy got a 14 year $340 million deal from the San Diego Padres. So you know these guys getting ready for spring training and Fernando autopsies Junior? He is basically now Set up for life. I'm pretty sure his dad is somewhere with a cigar in his mouth, just pretty much enjoying life and I'll tell you this much. This doesn't change the fact. That baseball as we discussed last night is pretty much on a one a downswing. So let's see what happens there. Baseball needs players like Fernando Totti's Jr Toby personalities to help spread the game. And so that will be extremely interesting. You know how he goes about with his career? I mean, he's 22 years old and He's a great player to watch. Let's see how that that unfolds. Man. I just tweeted out to show run down. You can find that online on Twitter at J. R Sport brief and the number here. 855 to 1 to four CBS. That's 855 to 12 for CBS. And, you know, I guess this is This is interesting. This is the complete opposite end of the Spectrum. Two totally different sports. But I just told you about this deal that the Padres gave Totti's Jr Almost 15 years. $340 million Today earlier this afternoon. It came out it didn't even come out. But Kevin Colbert, who was the general manager for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was asked about Ben Rafel is Berger and his future Then rob Bliss. Berger turns 39 years old and a couple of weeks. We know what just happened it with the Steeler season. They started off undefeated at 11, and all the season ended 12 and four They got beat up or they lost. I should say to Washington and Buffalo and Cincinnati they were embarrassed in the wild card round of the playoffs, losing to Cleveland, 48 to 37. The lasting image that anybody got or that at least I recall from that game, which was an ass kicking. Was Ben Rafel is Burger sitting on the bench. Basically in a near empty stadium with tears in his eyes. For someone who's had so much success since 2000 and four he was the offensive Rookie of the year. He was youngest Super Bowl winning quarterback and 06 at 23 years old when they beat the Seahawks, and he has another ring. I mean, Ben Rafel is Berger. He's a surefire Hall of Famer. There's no doubt about that. But we also know throughout all of his success. He's a big dude. He's big Ben Droplets Burger. This man has stood in the pocket and delivered the football for years. Quite frankly, he hasn't missed his many games. As you think he would have. He's he's just taking the hits. He's taken a licks, and he's kept on ticking. But as I said he turns 39 next month. He's do $34 million next season, and it has been repeated since that ass kicking at the hands of the Cleveland Browns. That have been robbed Bliss. Berger wants to return. They're gonna have to readjust this salary. There's no way and how that they would bring him back on that salary. Ben Roethlisberger has made it clear verbally. He said, Okay. Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah, I want to come back and I'm aware I'll come back and play for free. Well, today we heard from general manager Kevin Colbert, and he didn't necessarily have the most glowing endorsement about Ben Rafel is Berger and his future in Pittsburgh when he was asked about Big Ben situation, This is what he had to say. He reiterated that to us that he wants to continue to play and we we told him quite frankly, we have to look at this current situation. You know. Art Rooney address that With Ben's current cap number of some adjustment will have to be made, and we're not negotiating a zoo. We sit here and answer this question. You know, Ben Roethlisberger is on a team. Ben Roethlisberger did a lot of really good things. Last year, and we anticipate that he could still do some good things moving forward, so hopefully there's a way that we can try to figure out and do what's best for the organization and do what's best for Ben and hopefully You'll be able to see that and feel the same way we do, but there's a lot of work that needs to be done. Wow. I mean, Ben Rafel is, Berger says, dammit. I basically come back and play for free. The general manager says, Yeah, okay, we've discussed it, but there's still a whole lot more to be done. I mean, it's who's exaggerating. Here obviously been Rafel is Berg. He's not going to play for free. He can't go out there and play for free. He has to get paid something. But are the Steelers legitimately? Are they trying to drive the price down more from whatever it realistically might be? Are they looking at different options? When you think about the NFL draft or or free agency? I don't I don't think so. I I still believe that Ben Rafel is a Burger world retired. We've had executives. I don't want to say cry Wolf. But we've had executives this offseason passed off seasons who they just come out and say anything. It was Dave Gettleman a few years ago, and he pretty much said before trading. Odell Beckham Jr. So the Cleveland Browns he pretty much said Yeah, hold down is a giant. He's not the only one. I mean, how about we go back a few years and and let's look at Cliff Kingsbury? He was this is what he had to say. After he took the Cardinals job. This is a coach. Obviously, Josh Rosen just played one year. Listen to what Cliff Kingsbury had to say about being committed to him and not thinking about Kyla Murray Go ahead. Our feelings towards jazz. Heaven waned or changed or anything. I get way with the first pick,.

"So I guess what well means that big been won't have to look for a new team in 2021 over the weekend Been robbers. Burger Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback. Then and potentially now and potentially forever. I guess he had a positive meeting about his return and coming back to stealing. Everything was great. We had a wonderful sit down. We held hands. We sing Kumbaya. Everything went well. Not even two days later, Aditi Kabbalah of the NFL never reports and I quote the Steelers won bin back and we'll contact her soon to address his cap situation in quote, even his agent, Ryan told us said, and I quote we are happy to creatively a justice contract. I helped him build the best team possible. In quote there. No winners and losers here. Move it to Pittsburgh Steel just saying, Hey, Hey, Ben. We want you back before the $1.2 million do cut us a break and big Ben was on board with that because starting over his age Not exactly a good idea. I'll tell you, Freddie, I'm I'm not surprised, but I did do Ah, kind of. Ah huh? When I saw this story Because even if he goes to the vested, veteran minimum Which is just over $1 million, right? Because off the contract, even if even if he goes from It was the schedule to make this year like 15.8 or something. Toe. One million. So one million right on the cap it that was 41 mate. Man changed right even has a vested veteran minimum of one million. It's still in $19 Million Plus cap it so a lot of money so part of me, you know, right when I saw Mike, Huh? Is Kevin Colbert last week. Well, you know, when he gave that as of this moment, Today. Ben Roethlisberger is our quarterback. He's a Pittsburgh Steeler. And then the next day he's talking about kind of excited to see what Dwayne Haskins canoe. You see what he's learned from, You know his faults and This steps in Washington because they had a very high grade on him coming out of Ohio State as a lot of people did right I was a little bit as an eyebrow raiser that they figured out a way to have been our come back for one more rodeo on. I hope it ends well because he's earned the right To say, you know a how how he goes out whether it's gonna be mutual like it was with Philip Rivers and the Chargers. Eli Manning in a giant and right now we're waiting on Drew Brees and the Saints. Having said that, right? How good is he going to be next year because down the stretch, he faltered and a lot of it also was because they didn't have a running game. That's where it starts right there. You've got to find a running game in a better offensive line. So whatever you do in the draft or free agency view, the Steelers If you believe they've been Rothenberg and be a quarterback that can lead a team. Then you got to make sure that everything does not fall on his shoulders. They got away with it when they were 11 and no but the minute that they were not able to get away with it as greatest. He's been. He's not that great now in his career that they can overcome that, and he knows that But I'm a big believer based on the went well theory that we heard over the weekend evolving the meeting. This has the Rooneys written all over it. This is how big been written all over it. This doesn't have a cold over there Gentle magic. This was the room. He's getting everybody getting saying, Look, he doesn't want to go anywhere. You don't want to go anywhere. We don't want to go anywhere. Let's figure this out, has grown people. Let's not do. The Dallas Cowboys are doing where Dak Prescott over there the Cowboys over there and there's a Grand canyon space between those two coming together to figure what the hell's going on. That's not how the Rooneys operate, and they were not going to allow this to be played out in the press. They were not going to allow this the faster because I believe by the easy Fitzsimmons and Freddie Coleman on Freddy efforts, Simmons on ESPN Radio and suspected child 80 I friendly Kevin Colbert. Had his mind made up to say We need to move on from Ben Roethlisberger but are ready to second Armenia second, said. I pay both your salaries and I want to continue to pay both your salary. So, Kevin, I don't care where you and big Ben have to have lunch. I don't care if you have to do outdoors with masks on, but you're going to do it and you can have a conversation has grown men. Believe that Rooney's had a lot to do with all this. I'm going from last week thing. Hey. They're going to move on to. It went well. And two days later, they're going to contact the deacon Kubala, the inter phone network about how this is gonna play out. Well, we saw how it now has played out because it Z Ben Roethlisberger's 18th year of his career. It's going to be in the exact same uniforms as the 1st 17 years of his career. The study at a Well, a much lesser number than he's used to. When he suits up for the Pittsburgh Steelers in that exact same uniforms for your 18. If he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh, those were going to be that those were going to be the parameters. A big been knew that that's stupid, and he's fine with it. I mean that Eddie and that goes to show you how much it means to him. To start and finish his career as a Pittsburgh Steeler plus saying Big Ben outside of black and gold.

"Maybe he was. He was hesitant because he's a little bit younger. Maybe he says the to sit out and and have people forget about him but Cam Newton kind of an established quarterback is former MVP fleeing the super bowl as a little older. You sweat thirty thirty one. So maybe he can. He feels less pressure to to sign right away and he can just Kinda play the field. Wait and see what comes to him absolutely now. What do here Tony? I'm GonNa read this list to you and I'm going to have you just follow up with a sustainable or outside. Just throw in one of those. Who If you think that what I'm saying sign -able signed by the steelers and there's a lot of factors in this so we won't go to rapid air for you but we're gonNA throw the through that we've already talked about Cam Newton and we've already talked about today being cloudy so Cloudy we could probably agree that the he's not sizable right. Now for this team. You'd love to have a luxury like this. But he's probably not right. Yeah that's that's that's that'd be like getting You'RE GONNA have to pay TJ wotton a year or so. That's what he's probably GonNa want her close to it and the reasons guys are on this list is because they are expensive in the. Some of them are in their prime. So this is one of the things that we haven't seen a lot in the past so Really interesting stuff. So let's start with number three on the list. Larry Warford guard from the New Orleans Saints. He's twenty nine okay. That's I think it'd be a sounded like somebody. It wouldn't be very expensive. Sizable probably disagree with you on it. I think he's going to be a little more expensive He's been an all pro war about three straight years or so dark has denard cornerback from Cincinnati. This is the guy that I wanted over Ryan shazier right back in two thousand fourteen. Which was stupid of me but at least I'm holding true to a knee jerk reaction from six years ago which I take back but I'm at least gonNA say that Hey. I wasn't educated enough to know that that this was the guy that that we really wanted at the time So Denard I tell you probably be able to get him at a cheaper deal not a dirt cheap deal but certainly less than what you paid for Joe Haden a few years ago. Is he something that would be worth it to the steelers? Only if he's willing to be a backup and maybe a starter in waiting with Joe Haden getting a little older and now I'm not certain he's willing to settle for that role right now. Everson Griffen Edge RUSHER FOR MINNESOTA. He got a few bowls in there. I think I think they're set as far as Linebacker at address her a he considered more of a defensive end. Yeah you can throw them on the I mean you can throw him on the edge. You know he sounds like a Tyson Lou. Kinda guy veteran. Maybe you can get him on a cheaper Joe. I know they signed a Lulu a little bit later a couple years ago not much later you know once after free agency began so maybe get somebody like that on a on a what is age and everything maybe you can get him at a cheaper deal for for for depths but they. They're they're they have worm Lee and the draft picks and I think I think they're good. They're Logan Ryan. Cornerback from Tennessee. Had a fantastic year last year. He's twenty nine years old. Alex also a of the Patriots in the past two. He's not like somebody would want to be a starter at this point and Probably probably a pass for him. So I'm GONNA a halt what we're doing right now just to bring in something since we just talked about two corners all right and I'm going to bring Donald Nolan hair and Donald said. I saw an article about possible trades. Philly would make with steelers. Hayden would be at the top of their list thoughts of him going Philly in a trade I I. Don't I think he she valuable to that defense? They don't I mean if they could get one of these other quarterbacks in in here as a free agent Ab but but what are you going to? Trade Joe Haden for probably a draft pick so when we get back and return not a not a a quarterback who plays at his level and and after after him. Who did they have? Obviously they have Steven Nelson. But he's he's already a starter on the other side Justin lanes unproven. Kim Sutton's relatively unproven. Mike Hilton is is when the best fought quarters in the. Nf Do you to do you want to move him. He he capable fine on the outside. So I think I think Hayden's we've seen in the past. How how defense suffered a bit. When whenever he's been injured so I think I think he's too valuable to trade right now. See the only thing with that is now to clarify. I WANNA give Donald Credit here. Because he's like he agrees with Tony. He doesn't think it's going to happen but they're showing interest so he's bringing it up a lot of times and I want you to give credit to all of us to give Donald for that because ears thing. There's a Lotta Times bring something up that someone saying and they think I'm endorsing it. Just because you're bringing up doesn't mean you're endorsing it so right. WanNa go ahead and make sure we all know that. So another thing Saudis Kennedy says the majority of your players you're naming is top free agents have injury concerns and so they won't get signed until teams can get them to a physical so that's the thing you got to think about as well and that's right. This is a new global landscape that we're dealing with right now But some of them aren't some of them have been cut because teams are kind of cost so that that's exactly what we're looking at here but the to the whole paid in affiliate thing which nobody thinks is going to happen but it was brought up. You know we'll start turning you never know. But here's the thing about that if that were to happen. You're shitting about what the head of about twenty million dollars and then you sign one of these guys to in a long extension because you only have. Hayden for one more year but I think that would right now. I think that'd be foolish because I think you WanNa see through what we always called the window and the window is Includes Joe Haden in that window and I gotTa tell you that eight record. Last year is a lot worse. The magic of Joe. Haden back there too especially what he did from week. The second half the season most of his interceptions were late in the season and he was He helped ice at least two games with interception. So a really. I mean that's interesting to bring up and that's what this shows four to because if you see something out there at catches your eye. Anga ask him but we think about it. And I I really WANNA keep Joe Haden but executives are also thinking about the fact okay. Could we younger and have more room to the cap because we might only one more year? But they're looking way ahead. They've already had conversations about the future. Probably as well to hi. I'm Ariel Ross. Host of the tech podcast reset and. I'm here to tell you about some of the stories. We're following on reset this month stories about how we're adapting to the pandemic with a little help from technology and science like what does teach him look like right. Now I can tell you. There's T- teachers right now. Who have been conducting their phone calls and check INS with students from random anywhere that you can get. Wi Fi in for folks who can work from home. How is that working out now? It's my whole life is conducted via the Internet connection. The pandemic even changed what you might think of. Prep irs the prep. I were at home not going to costco and waiting in line for twelve hours standing next to a bunch of other sick people. So if you want to understand the new normal.

And what kind of draft picks would you be getting as well to if round draft pick out of the guy? You don't make that deal. Yeah second. You're like okay. That's a little bit different. Let me think about it more But as crease says Hayden Stone Elite Player For the steelers defense. He was a huge part of it last year. So I don't really want to get rid of Hayden Gero says I don't think it's going to happen. But that's what these shows are for their for discussion Back to the list. Here's a blast from the steeler passed. And I'm going to say in the In the seven round draft era one of the greatest seventh round picks in Pittsburgh steeler history. And it's Kevin Beecham not only. Was he a great seventh round? Pick he was the fourth seventh round. Pick the steelers had that year and Kevin Beecham thirty one years old. Sure he's a little beat up but is that depth for the line that you would send for minimum deal. I was big Calvin Beach Fan when he was here he. He essentially helps save the twenty thirteen season down the stretch. He stepped in for Mike Adams. Down the stretch the the same Mike Adams and really short up that line when Ben was getting killed I mean He. He's found surround. Be Left he. He got a decent really good Free agent contract but he left after two thousand thirteen season. Two thousand fourteen season and He's probably somebody you can probably get on a really cheap deal on like the other guys. You mentioned Wolford so I mean if he's willing to come in and and and and be a deaf. Pc sounds like a like a step whereas new ski type for the attack position. See I really versatile. I really like that but keep in mind the money that you have under the cap right now has to go to sign. Your draft picks has to go to sign your practice squad. There's not a lot there but a guy like a Beecham. He's definitely a veteran. Minimum Guy at this point and I I would actually think that would be more realistic and a piece of the puzzle signing for depth yet. Reginald rivers puts in Brett Kiesel was the best seventh round. Pick though I I can't disagree with that so I I will fall back and say that was just an off. The cuff comment will put Brett. Kiesel at the best south round. Pick ever and we'll throw in beach him as number two. I agree with you. Don that at the top of my left about next week show Kiessling Beecham. So that's I've ever told you my beach story do tale so this this is a i. I love a by tens and I have a whole wall of steeler eight vitamins I have a bunch in a book that I've had behind over the years in I send them to steelers or the retire player and with a sharpie and asked them to. Please sign my eight by ten and sent back to me with a self addressed envelope. Having done this in five or six years but I remember doing it with Beecham. I sent them to pictures that I had. I think it was his second year and I sent them into them and I haven't heard back from two months but that doesn't matter because some of them I've had some take six or seven years to get and some of them get back right away like Mike. Tomlin would send it back to you right away. Dick Lebeau would send them back to you runaway back in the day and so I sent an in with a letter and asking him to sign it like I do do the same thing for everybody and I might put a just a small letter but I throw it in there and you know I wait in become My wife calls me when I'm working. You've got mail and I get all excited. I run over to grab male but this time it was a Friday night I was turning in. I'm checking out..
Fresh update on "kevin colbert" discussed on WBBM Afternoon News Update
"Some team could look at him and I don't think he's the one with what he's displayed to me since the departing of Antonio Brown, but someone's gonna look at him and over pay for him. Because they may be bringing them in as a two. Or they may be bringing them in as the number one wide receiver with the way that the Steelers produced wide receivers. Not many great wide receivers, but good wide receivers. And just draft and Chase Claypool. I don't expect them to bring back juju unless if he's going to take a reduced price tag. James Connor. He's been extremely disappointing. Easy guy to root for. He's been extremely disappointing. Since we've seen Levy in Bel Leve, the organization So you get that from today with Ryan Tollner, who is the agent of Big Ben? And he basically told you they want big Bend back. We got to get moving on the cap situation. We got to get talking here and we'll find out what the adjusted price tag is. And earlier this morning yet Gerry Gerry do lack who covers the Steelers. He said that Ben met with the team President Art Rooney, the second today and the meeting went well. So we went through kind of these waves. As I was saying he's gonna be back went in here that a deal was getting done Then you had, Kevin Colbert said. What he said Maybe he's not coming back. I fully expect Big Bend to come back this year for two reasons. Number one. If he's not on the roster. This is not a civil. It's only five million You gotta worry about and you could easily replace that He's getting 22 23 million if he's not on the roster, whether you cut him or Or he retires. And not only that, because of how big that price tag is. If you even wanted to move on who's starting at quarterback for you next year? Because I'm not saying that the Steelers even with Big Ben back They're Super Bowl team. I don't believe that. But they are, I would imagine a playoff team found a lock. Like I look at the landscape of the A F C. I like Kansas City better than Like the bills, but in them.

"The steelers or yes. I'm going to meet with the steelers or I am formerly talked with the steelers. If they don't say that we don't know about it because the steelers are not making this knowledge public if anything they probably hate the fact that players will say that because they don't want anyone to know anything about their plans period so I don't know it's still early in the game for me and for the steelers so we'll see Michael Amalia says. I am super excited about this draft more than usual. I don't know why Lance Williams is the same exact way and he hates the draft. I'm telling you I've done this. I've lance is a very good friend of mine for those it might not know you know We we communicate regularly outside of our shows. We've been doing shows together now for like six or seven years. Trust me we know each other pretty well when you talk for hours on end about the steelers. In life on your podcast. He hates the draft. I mean I've we used to take off seasons off. Because Lance hated anything that had to do with the Aussies and he didn't care about free agency unless they actually got someone he didn't care about the draft. You do is you. Just tell me who pick and then we'll talk about it. He's excited about this draft. Maybe it's because he's actually going to talk about making them talk about it in the off season. Maybe that's it will. But he is also. He talked about it a little bit last week where he said you know. They don't have as many pixes normal and so he wants to see what Cobra can do. So there's a little bit intrigued there. Maybe that's what it is. I don't know I don't know so as you're raunchiest is jeff is okay who they might combine means squat. You're right thank you very much. Let's see here going. Through some of these areas steeler fan of seventy four says today. Jeff do you think we should trade future draft capital and move in this draft? You know? I think that if they did that I wouldn't be upset over that way. It's gotta be the right prospect. You don't trade up in the first on just because you WANNA get a first-round pick you have to go up because there's that one guy that one guy that you think in puts you over the top if there is that one guy then you make that move and you do what you have to. If there's not that one guy there than you don't ever think about just stay put stay put. Don't worry about anything because honestly there's enough talent in the second round we've seen it before people forget. The lady on bell was a second round. Pick choose misuse to raise a second round. Pick steph onto a second round pick. I could go on so there's a lot of value in the second round. Let's not forget that. Let's not forget that crazy Chris says of what would hunter Henry or a hundred Henry type of Titan have on this team Hunter Henry Athletic and he has some speed to them in some Athletic Prowess people. I never been see. Vance McDonald I don't think athlete in that sounds horrible. After I say that I regret say but he does. He doesn't scream athlete. When I think of athletic tight ends I think of guys like Tony. Gonzalez I think of guys like even Antonio Gates I think of a Rob Gronkowski. Before is the back injuries and everything else. Those are the type of players that I look for when I think of athleticism and I can't think of a tight end because Heath Millard scream athlete. Either heck of a football player. No one's denying that but is he just didn't scream athlete. I think the last night in the steelers have had screamed. Athlete will a deary screen. Would've fit that mold of. He could have stayed healthy but he didn't sue. Won't say but you'd have to go back to Eric Green. As the last time I felt the steelers had an athlete at tight end. That's what I want because if you can get someone. That's an athletic. Titanic and run the seem. Take on those quarterbacks or take on this safeties it is going to change everything with the steelers offense everything everything. It's GONNA open up so much more on the outside. It's going to even help with the run game. I'm telling you I'm telling you I'm telling you that's exactly what I think and I think that is gonNA completely change the offense if they do that. Someone's at George kittle. Exactly perfect example. Perfect example of even Travis Kelsey getting about the super bowl matchup between the chiefs and the forty niners Phillips was another two dollars in the tip. Shari's glance at mortgage the future for the present. Yes sometimes you have to. I I like in this to the NHL in Pittsburgh. Penguins they realize they have a sidney. Crosby they realize what they have Guinea Malkin this nucleus of players. That are getting older. And as a you know what? Why do we care about the twenty twenty two first-round pick? We need to win right now. So we'RE GONNA we'll trade it away. Who cares take it take that back then the NHL different very rarely do you get a first pick. It comes right into the league just like in baseball. You get a first-round pick very rarely. Are they in the Shell? They may start in high double high single A. OR DOUBLE A. And then they work their way of it takes them a few years the NFL. When you're a first round pick you have to perform in some way shape or form in some way shape or form you have to perform a Devon Bush. A good job you played. He played a lot played. Well I thought you did a lot so that was good but here Bando Brando's I like you have to have is other sharp a hater. He didn't even think about Shannon Sharpe. I'm just trying to rattle off. Tight ends that. Come to mind as Eric Green. Come on Jefferson. We passed on Emmett for that. Sorry Ted in a era green was NEV leading tight end. I'm not talking about who they could have had. I'm saying he was dead. Ron's if you ride Vance look stiff tight end. What's he how he gives up on plays? That's that's some damning stuff there when you talk about giving up on plays ex Dallas has I think the net Nick Vernet could be tight end number one and he says free up some money from McDonald they. They have to make a decision on the Donald and his Club option coming up soon but on top of that. I'm not sure Veneta number one. I'm not sure I'm not sold on that at all. I think that could be a good number two. Don't think that he's a number one. But that's just me. That is just me so okay snowman says we do trade in the first round hit. You Grab Patio. I try to be as real with you all as possible and for me. I don't follow the draft that much I do but I told you the stepping stones that I take and this is just the first stepping stone so I don't have any names in mind because the mobile I would say someone. There at people blake chest in idiot. That guy's going to be gone in the top ten. What's he talking about exactly? I don't know what I'm talking about talking to make a fool out of myself. Put IT THAT WAY. So okay GonNa call it a show. We're about the forty five minute. Mark like to keep it a data that length. Thank you all sixty six or more of you chimed in some way sometime during the show please like the video. Subscribe to the channel. You have them before seven podcasts.

"You know but now I'm like yeah. Let's keep your pre that. That's kind of what happens with the combine. You need to. Everyone needs to put more stock in tape. I mean you need to put more stock in to how you action how they play on the field and the other way to put stock yet. It is is when we break down. This is what I did when we break down players that the steelers draft and like. Let's look at their better competition. Like we looked at the Andre Johnson last year When they played when they played bigger conference schools and not just Max schools and how he played in those games and he played great in those games. So things like that. They're my thing is just so many players and last year I found myself with doing the mock drafts and everything else. Tr- starting to fall in love with players that I wouldn a sewage would take only the turn around and not care about them one bit. Because they're not a Pittsburgh steeler right rather see this dealers draft and then completely diving everything about them. That's just me so there was a question here that I wanted to that. I wanted to bring up here. We got from Donald. He said later Jones to own the xfl thoughts. They look bad without in the first week. They looked bad with him for three quarters of the first game and then they've done pretty good sense dead. I'm happy for Landry Jones. I know people were down. Landry Jones Landry Jones and his time with the steelers was really before my time at Vinyl Curtain and I had people that were like all intrigues all Andrew Jones. Oh He's not the answer. He was never via answer. Jones your back. He was your backup quarterback. He will bridge and in the time you know he was there during life. Better Term Prime Ben Rothlisberger years. He did just what you needed a guy to do he could go in. And when you Gamer to yeah I mean. And they don't want to not lose every game that he started not like he has to win every game but I mean I mean. Come on he he. He did some great stuff and did what they needed him to do. Not everyone could come in cold off off the bench seat. That's the thing base Rudolph. Deviled hodges both played so much better coming off. The bench. Games didn't start also using my opinion they really did. So and Landry Jones. I think did did so as well. It's when they it's sometimes. It's almost with a game plan for you. They don't do very well But Landry Jones. I've always I've always been pulling for later. I love to see him do on the XFL does this mean. I think he's going to find his way back the NFL. Probably not but it seemed doing well there and hopefully you do too but so many people are so much hate towards Landry Jones. I'm like man. That's that's just crazy so any other thing. You WanNA bring up rich questions any other statement you to say no. I was keeping to see anything else. Popped in the live chat that I felt the absolute need to bring up was not really seeing Koch. Reginald as a question he says is beats yes. You have a lot of sports writers. You know what you need to do. Reginald he'd come check out behind still curtain. You do we. We don't know what you would define a lot. We have the. How do I say the two main writers for the site are Jeff Art? Meta myself as the editor of the deputy editor. We between the two of us we probably about seventy five percent of the content. But then you're getting great stuff from Tony Deaf. Yo you're getting great stuff for Brian. Davis Jeff are generally the only people on a daily basis. Come on. Don't forget somebody other ones don't forget they're very still repairs is still a punk. Jean-ann White Shannon wait. You get flipped throwing out his crazy stuff that you know what whether you agree with him or not. He puts it out there. You know. I'm still his signature on the job. We have a guy that I don't know if before and just and just hadn't been doing much or if it was someone who knew his name's Michael Beck. He's been doing a lot. You've been seeing probably almost an article for midday recently. He's coming in. We have another person that that might be coming in to do some draft stuff. And there's we have the fan post section of the website that I don't really get to very often but where people that just have account can come in and write their own articles in Fan Posts and I'm and frankly there's been some that are good enough. We put on the main page then. So if you're interested in doing anything like that go in getting account makes you checking out the website. It's a great place to be. It's a great place to get it for me because the thing is sometimes action said Said Jeff. I'm like are you really gonNa Paul which that article because I completely disagree with? 'cause THEY FLIP. I don't know whether or not I love the bus. Okay but no but I'm like really. Yeah he's A. We're not going to give this. We don't all want to have the same takes. You've got some guys that. Love Ben Rothlisberger some guys that have never liked Ben Rothlisberger. You've got some authors that that wanted you know that thought. Mesa roff wanted to see him succeed in some people that he he took three snaps and they wanted. Hodges you know you're not getting the same story from everybody and that's kind of neat that that's why we have the new title on the PODCAST. You know the hammer hater. Yeah exactly. That's the new podcast on Sundays. Thanks for bringing that up so I can kind of plug. These things that the homered hater. That's Jeff and Lance on Sundays. They don't see aisles glance and I definitely don't see eye and sometimes we go back and forth with various things on on taxed but we always end up laughing about it. It's just we don't have to agree we have. We can have strong opinions and and still be big steeler fans so yeah we have. We have a lot of different writers at Lance's the only podcast her podcast host her. That does not right for the site. Rich has never written for the sites but if you really ever wanted to writes up US gotTa let me know what I see if I can hook you up all right but that takes more time you spend your desk. So that's kind of thing but that's not for everybody. I'm hoping that what we take our time within that we write that you all can enjoy so somewhat never ben Rothlisberger. There's people out there that don't So that's just how it is but make sure you're checking out behind the curtain dot com. If you've ever been there there there's some there's some good stuff and I highly encourage you to go in and sign up for an account to be able to comment on the articles. Because that's where you can have a lot of fun where you all are in our live chat commenting right now. It's actually a lot of fun to get in on the articles get into conversations just like some of the stuff that goes on here today that it was very simple. It was based conversation. Jeff Hartmann and I had overtaxed of we were talking about saving saving salary cap space. I got the words out by cutting players. And he said cut foster CICCHILLO and his next cut and my next cut. We're not the same person he's like all come on. It's gotta be no. It's all well that person didn't know this person Blah Blah Blah. So I wrote. The article did say which was minor which one was deaths. Put it out there for everyone today. If you haven't checked it out go go there and vote in the poll because some of these articles have polls like this and it was if you could you have to keep on to put only one who would you keeping next year. Mark Sharon Vance McDonnell. We laid out the numbers. We laid out the production. We laid out. You know the depth and all that other stuff for people to do lots of comments dialogue on that I was. I checked that article today. Probably Twenty Times of reading the different comments in order to interact with people. It's just like the live chat here. You're spot on Bro with that. So lots of good stuff. That makes you tune in for the PODCASTS. You'll have standards of standard tomorrow night. The preview Thursday night land should be back for asset. I filled in for him last week. Which means sometime when I'm GONNA BE UNAVAILABLE Lance Lance will fill in here for for static Saturdays a burning question. I don't know who it is for. All we know it's me then. Homerun hater also hold on. Goldenrod at the second rhino tools comment. He says you guys have a lot of crackheads commenting on your facebook post totally different group than you hear yes right yeah do not go and on the facebook where you WanNa go. You're correct. I see a lot of ridiculousness there. That's gotta go to behind the steel curtain. Sign up for an account and comment directly on the articles on the website. Exactly that is where the good conversation happens. Yeah and you should because I don't. I'm pretty sure you can read. The comments just can't posted if you don't have account there night and day from facebook. I don't go to the facebook comments at all because you're going to get. You're GONNA get trolls. You're going to get people with crazy. Ideas commented on one one time on facebook and I regretted making a comment. I just I actually commented a couple of times on my articles because I accidentally clicked on the comments when I showed him. I I used to run my own my own fan page. So I still host my articles to my fan page and I commented under my fan page. Which is the steelers? Superfan Dad page and I said you all were saying all these various things. This was addressed in the article. Why don't you actually click on it and read it? Because most of the people commenting on the facebook articles. Almost all of them. Don't read the article. They just based off the headline and they come in and go on all these crazy things. I'm like read the article I it's addressed in there said it's similar diamond. They someone I should come back to. That was a good idea. I did read. That article yet. Said this this this and this so I guess you're right. The steelers can't do that and I'm like yeah I know didn't say that I was on the road it but still it was the whole idea so lots of lots of stuff there yet. Don't don't use the facebook page to see what articles you want a not. Every article from the website goes on facebook page. So if you want all the articles go to the web page so we want to thank you all for joining us tonight. Lots of good stuff. Lots of stuff.

"That's how they screwed that up against the chargers in Boston out there Keenan Allen and one of the game so Vince Williams is finally back into the right role he needs someone else to play the Mac so he can play the buck. We saw it this year. He was great against the run. He was great with the pass. Rush US going to be. He's not the guy that you want cover in guys in the secondary and hopefully you don't have to have them do that. You know other than just playing. You're like middle's out. So between that Devon Bush. You're not looking for a start or anytime soon to jump in middle linebacker. So that's that was my thing there. It's funny because reading rabbit. Which is why you g three makes sense. Thank your backup guy in their exactly. Reginald says this draft depot tight ends. This draft is actually. They're saying the tourists Lee week with tight ends. And here's why don't we might be a Lotta guys but there's not a lot of top tier guy exactly that's just bringing to say you're not reginald deep with the guys you can get later but honestly there's some mock drafts that I've I've had to look at two articles that the steelers have their choice of any tight at forty nine. None had been drafted yet in Boston. Nano you can only put so much stock in mock drafts. I you know why I do this. Mock draft stuff. Jeff asked me to do it because people read it. People were into it. You can only put so much stock into it. So they have a lot of tight ends that you can get later on but it's not like last year where we had to in the top twenty so that that's what you don't have this year. I'm trying to see if there's anything else. Good in the live chat. A there is going to bring Brads Brad. It's funny because Brad's been working on. He had this big big Ma. I can't remember how many rounds he did this. Enormous mock draft. That he did he tried to email it to us. The file didn't save. He lost almost all of it and he is desperately been trying to get it back to me and and so. I appreciate all the work that you're putting into that Brad. He says he sold on at forty nine. O Line he says. But if Dobbins is there yet and Seattle. I'm telling you a lot of people are projecting Dobbins to be there. Because that's what it is. I don't think I don't think Dobbins is a is a very good pass blocker and I don't think Dobbins is a very good pass catching running back so that's just me so I'm not sold on going running back in round two when that means one of the guys that you WanNa see what they're doing next year isn't going to be on the team because you're just gonNa have to many. I'd rather personally. I'd rather go somewhere else. I like but I do like that offensive line. I think the next mock draft. I'm going to be doing is where the steelers are actually taking interior offensive linemen which is interesting so lots of lots of ways to you could go so they can go the material from now right. Yeah Yeah Only saw one and then it skipped. Hi this is so frustrating. I'm not going to be able to to to get back to it. Can't remember who it was. Although I'm pretty sure it was from Ryan but one he said is reaching for a position for position even the draft. Gets you an already burns? Yeah exactly exactly so. I'm trying to get back to where I was because I had one I was going to try to bring up and I'll just have to say it. There was it was right he said loved. Colbert's comments on ABC's for w they didn't know what he said about Ab AB will always be part of our Pittsburgh steeler family. He was with us for a long time. Did a lot of great things. We care about him as a person he's never playing for us again and that's he's never playing for us again completely. Shut the door on ever a reunion there but they always care about. Ab the person because of him being a part of the organization so mark brings up an article that Jeff -partment had tagged your pre and traded for draft picks. Some people were saying now not idea. But you've got to have a cap space even tag to trade him and he's got to agree to that trade because he's gotta sign he's gotTa sign off on it because he's typically not under contract so and like Michael said he's like Culbertson tackles deep. I'm sure he knows more than any of us so Yeah like I said according to. Cbs sports thirteen offensive tackles in the top. One hundred thirteen tackles fourteen. F. Thirteen Edge rushers. The only position that had more the top one hundred was wide. Receiver had eighteen and expect that so. So it's it's Here's a question said Donaldson he read. Bob Labrador articles at all. Dave rich is pretty good insight on the steelers roster Moose that's because he's employed by the steelers. He's in the building if I had his access. That'd be really nice. I rehabbed some. I used to read before I started behind the curtain. I read everything. He wrote everything but now just because of all the other information. I read his stuff when I can but there's like I used to be his asked and answered religiously but now there's so much stuff going on some of the slip through the cracks format you ever read. Labra night I've ever read. Steelers DOT COM. He's the editor Dot Com. Lots of good stuff. Some people are like all out attacking probably have just haven't realized realize that's who it was but you know he's he's always in his ask answer would be. I've read articles on behind the steel curtain. That were written by you that I didn't figure out. It was Utah about three quarters of the way through the article into gave state. Yeah Yep that's that's right. Steeler fan seventy four did finally. I did finally come across his answer the question he asked before he wants to go online and around too tight end round three wide receiver and four remember. Steelers have two fourth round picks. They have to now. We don't know from the trade for Fitzpatrick that's why they don't have a fifth but they don't have a fit. Because of the Trade Fitzpatrick that gave up a fifth to get another fourth and they gave up the figure from Jacksonville to go. Get Nick The net but we. I've seen conflicting reports on whether or not the steelers of the dolphins fourth round pick or the pick of the dolphins got from the titans in the fourth round. So if it's the pick from the dolphins it'll happen before the steelers regular fourth round pick. Obviously if it's the picture of the titans it happens after the steelers regular round pick so not sure which one it is any day should be releasing the entire slate the steelers sorry the NFL relating a releasing all the picks because of dollar now for compensatory picks and say. Here's every pick that's coming. And then we'll know Brad said he'd ride if they take a receiver forty-nine. I like that so you had a lot of good stuff in here. Lots of discussion about self with the draft. Here's a question I'm going to ask. I'm going to skip over a lot of the comments right now because I wanna see what you guys are saying right now. My question is this hold on. I click the wrong one. I wanted to say I'll come back to that King David but I wanted to say we do not need wide. Receivers is what young and said I agree so that we don't need wide receivers. That would be that. That's a luxury pick in my opinion. King David said you can get a good oil in the sixth the way. This draft is loaded with offensive lineman. So what I want to ask. You always this with it. Being a prime time anyone in the live chat. Are you going to watch combine? That's what I would like to know so is rich. Do you think yeah no not watching the COMBI. Yeah I watch combine okay. I don't feel that I get anything else from it. That we don't already have or won't be able to get in the weeks to come reason to sit and watch. Somebody do shuttle runs Bench presses are things like that like. I'm really multiple answers. I'm assuming this of course was to the question. Yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes the combine watching highlights. That's what I usually did. Ryan says I'd Rather Watch paint dry. Residual try it out for QB's and tea eased tight ends and running backs. someone's combine analyzing every player. That's Brad said Spreads regular that long draft. Yes he is so honestly when it comes to the combined watching all I don't I think if you're a college football fan and it would mean more to you watching the combine figures. I'm not a college football fan. I Despise College football. I don't watch it yeah. I don't Despise College Football College. Football is not as convenient for me to watch. I'm home on Sunday afternoons Being Lazy. Anyway and I watch pro football Saturdays I got stuff to do honestly so I don't. I Follow College football. I don't watch college football. I scores. I don't know individual players because I look more at what teams are doing. Well so Saturday Saturdays in the fall. I've got the fish to catch and deer hunt. So you know that's what I do at my Saturdays instead of watching college football so then I can then relax on Sunday and watch real football. Yeah I've got work to do. I've got your work to do. I got stuff like that to do with three kids responsibilities but stuff with with their activities. I mean I I get so far behind anyway and to to know that. I'm going to if I had one team that I was really into that would be easier. That would be weight easier. And that's what I've been trying to watch some of the XFL. I can't watch all the games. Xfl What's Nice is that you can all the games. Because they're all nationally televised. I decided you know what I want to stick with local team. I'm GonNa try to catch the DC Games. They started getting trout's. I watched that one actually what on TV? I mean good as they looked at. I two weeks at home going to the West Coast. They had a a lot of people say that they're ready to watch. You WanNa know the truth. I am probably not going to watch much. I might check it out just to. Kinda see how it looks in prime time and if I need to report on anything from it but I'm going to be doing steelers preview Thursday evening so I've got my responsibilities with the website that that's that's going to take precedence over that I've always felt like I've got the Info I've needed out of the out of the combine without watching prime-time so I don't see a need for me to change how I get that information. Yeah I mean I personally I think I think putting too much stock in combine. Gets you drafting a player? Like buddy preview doesn't reproduce for four years because he completely bought out the combine..
Browns Dismiss GM John Dorsey Days After Firing Head Coach Freddie Kitchens
"Let's get to it Sadly adly mark we gotta start with the browns. How did we get back here? We're back we're back to the bounds being the browns. They have fired yet. Another general manager her Cleveland parted ways with John Dorsey. After two years on the helm the team announced made that move official after it was reported in multiple places. The decision to move on from Dorsey comes just two days after the Brian Brown's fired head coach Freddie Kitchens at the conclusion of the regular season Dorsey had a meeting with. Jimmy has them the team owner earlier. Tuesday the two sides according to Tom Palacio We're talking about possible. Structural changes that would curb Dorsey authorities GM but when the two sides can come to an agreement it was over mark Feels like Cleveland. Even though the better roster is back to square one in terms of dysfunction and just in general question marks about the present and the future and I can't and even begin to understand how you must feel the frustration of well. I'm of two minds because the first is they're just more proof that the browns the constant mode is sort of developing farce. I mean whatever whenever you think that they've turned a corner. They're actually just going in a circle back to where they were before for. And there are a lot of disturbing reports and whispers coming out of Cleveland that the ownership and we know this is not not shocking. Can you think about it. But the but they continue to be very impatient with all their decisions and the people they hire and so the question now and I think that the I've never seen the fan base this deflated because of where they were a year ago at this time. Or let's say seven months ago to now but because it just doesn't seem to matter to most people who they hire and it's too it's too de energizing using to get excited about fill in the blank coach and the from the other side though I will say this had they kept John Dorsey. It would've narrowed the candidate list of who was gonNA come and work with that next team by a lot so I think if you're going to keep doing this but do you agree with that. Dorsey wasn't the guy to be leading the charge. Because everyone seems it to be an agreement that he was a guy that came in the obviously inherited. Sasha's bountiful gifts and had some hits has mrs but had some big hits to me it all feels a little premature to take him out of the equation but this organization has done. There wasn't a straight firing right. They just say couldn't get different visions on how they saw the football operation going full hundred percent. I think they wanted to keep them and they talked about how much they liked him. But John Dorsey is probably very prideful and not going to take what is it what is when you're changing title it also demotion what else is it and the thing is he he. It's hit. It was his decision number one to go with Freddie Kitchens and they they ignored Paul does recommendations of Kevin Stefanski DEEPA. Desta also wanted. Sean McDermott in the past. So I think what they were saying. Was We kind of trust. Paul Podesta's voice in in this at this time around and that's not something that again. It's kitchens fall. It's a soup of Dursey for hiring kitchens more recently. Stunning fall though we were at the owners meetings and at that point John Dorsey was the toast of the NFL. I read them in the top five of my GM rankings. no-one no-one said Oh that's that's too high. I mean like it was very recent who is five. Oh who's right behind him. Thomas demetre was five. Kevin Colbert over three but It is amazing how much talent he acquired in a short time and he's gone but I think they've gotten it wrong so many times of not having the GM and the coach align that act. I do like I like I think that needs to be on the same page. Yes at every time. So I'm fine with it. It's deflating to the point of heartbreak for for Browns fans that last year at this time this job was seen as one of the most coveted in the league with a young talented nucleus. And you're finally going to bring the winter to Cleveland and now it's senior reading reading stories that executives say that's the one place I would not go and you're right back to where you were if some of these coaching tree scenarios were cal Shanahan and has a number of people interviewing with the browns. He was there he's he. He demanded his way out of the building. You got you know the bill. BELICHICK's of the world are going to be telling these guys be careful because yes. It's great for you to go on and get a head coaching job. But the DNA here is that you won't be there. Four hundred as has made it clear in his press conference Thursday that the coach would be part of hiring the GM which sounds weird. But I know that's fine but it means that the coaches ultimately the GM's boss Asif you get hyper and that's fine as long as it's defined ahead of time if that helps them get mcdaniels fancier whoever it is that they want in the door. That's fine it it just makes makes it clear that it's the coach. That's in charge and function and dysfunction always starts at the top and sports and since the has them's joined there on their fifth took over team. They're on their fifth coaching search and seven years and John Dorsey is the fifth different person or group heading up the football operation in that same seven seven year that has to be unprecedented. I mean there are at least just third that work in at least the third that only had one year really which is why
"kevin colbert" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"But he also led the league in passing less season. Throwing for over five thousand yards Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said this about Ben I know he doesn't have an expiration date. I know that he still very competitive he still wants to do this at a high level. He doesn't need money. He doesn't need hall of fame Prudential's, in my opinion. He's already at chief both of those what he wants is more Super Bowls and he wants to continue to try to win, Shannon. Is he right about Ben? Maybe maybe magin this. Hasn't big being tried to retire like three or four times laugh five years. That is true. Kevin Colbert, you might not have an expiration date. But being sure has been talking about it at the end of every season. Like, he sure has one I love people like, well, he don't need any more money. I don't need any more money. I don't need to listen either. Kevin. Once you win a title at that position. If you worth anything, that's all that matters. What do you think Tom Brady plan for drew Brees? All these guys. Russell wilson. All these guys. That's one the titles skip. Yes. As made money. Of course, you wanna make money notice being eight tourney now how about you play for ten dollars. And yeah, they gave compensation. They sure did. And when you play in when you win when you've been that level of quarterbacks gift. Yes, titles matter, and he wants to be thought of one of the pantheon greats in he knows he needs to win more titles was working with him as opposed to Tom Brady is that Ben hold the ball a lot longer. When you hold the ball, you give the defense a little extra time to get to you. Tom Brady gets the ball out of his hand. Yeah. He didn't strike me as a workout warrior. They named the sandwich out the him up in Pittsburgh, the robbers burger, I think he's still partaking those proxy would be role. But he doesn't strike me as the guy skip. That's going to cry your massage physio watching what he eats on a regular basis. Yeah. So I think the the odds are stacked against him. Now, he's not a mobile guy. He doesn't need to run around the field like, Mike, Michael vehicle or Patrick homeboy. But kevin. I mean, you don't give us anything that. We didn't already know. Yeah. He'd made one hundred eighty seven million dollars. I'm sure he'd let two hundred. You're right about he's about to make thirty four million dollars next year, Ben Rothlisberger. So I told you already I believe been Rothlisberger can win the MVP next year. He is my early in DP winner. I think the culture is getting changed in the wake of Antonio Brown. Lebanon, Bill bell in Pittsburgh. And I believe he's going to be at the center of all the change because he just got called out publicly, especially by Antonio. No. He's the problem because he publicly called us out and got away with it. He takes no responsibility. He bears, no responsibility. He wants no responsibility. And yet he's effectively the owner he gets to operate like he's the owner of the team all out by Antonio Brown. And maybe there's some truth to that. Even even maybe on what? Yeah. Being walked away. But he wants to win his his way. I'm gonna ask a d. Leaper question Kay. I'm not totally convinced. He does really want to win the way Tom Brady wants to win is he driven to win. Or is he pretty much just resting on his laurels because he got a lot of loyal to rest on how about into three Super Bowls and he won two of them. How about Wayne and get some numbers? Okay. Tom Brady's perfect a winning and having the Super Bowl points where he throws barely for two hundred yards or those for five. Oh, five and loses. But yeah, what I'm just trying to make a point. Okay. You did make a point. But last year been put up big number. Yes, he had career highs and touchdowns and and yard yards and attempts and completions Blobel across the. He led the league in all those categories..
"kevin colbert" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Right away. I'm saying they gotta Vince Williams. They got in the sixty got Jesse James in the fifth and like then he's disputing that. Because they're not. They're not sexy players. They're not fobel players, but you need in as Steeler fan. Tony you've got agree with this. We have seen over the years where Pittsburgh has one with pieces of the puzzle and unsexy picks that I've done very well unsexy names that have done very well that Ryan Clark's not a sexy name. He perfect piece of the puzzle for that they didn't track them, but they brought him in as a free agent. Vince Williams is the starter. And he's done well for them as a piece of the puzzle. The problem is Vince Williams in the position where Hugh Meade him to be a star. And he's more of a a role player as the starter. So that's that's what I'm saying about. About that with Vince Williams, but people want sexy, Kevin Colbert's not gotta gave sexy. But guess what? We don't need sexy. I don't think we need the I think we need reliable. So sexy is for. It's it's one thing to quote unquote, win on draft and draft a player that makes you feel good and you can celebrate. But that only last as long as he you know, it's not about the regular season about Sunday's. And and that's when we win. I mean, anybody can win on draft. I it doesn't matter. It happens during the fall that really matters. That's very true. So we're gonna wrap that up. And so I guess the you agree with me on Kevin Colbert, we need to start giving. Kevin Colbert, a break and realize how lucky we are to have this general manager on this team. You know, I know everybody is upset that the only a three and a five we've talked about it ad nauseam after what that guy pulled. You weren't going to get anything more than three and five and the the say with the way that the the running back situation with the running back starter that you lost same thing that they were mouth content. Revel malcontents here that in more he was not happy. They're gone. You have like you said earlier, if you quoting common, you have people that want to be here in hostages. So that's where we are on that just coming across the line. Just some NFL news. A one of the last named free agent went off the board. Just now which is surprising to see some free agent news. But it just came over on my phone just popped up. So C J Anderson is now what the trick laying in one year deal with. I think. That's a that's a nice smart move. What they gave them. But that's that's the guy. I would have given a contract to. But that's being said, we're about rep things up. But we talk about all the great content on buying the still all the time. Tony briefly. What do you have going on this week? Well, I wrote something just today, it hasn't publish it. But I wrote an article about how disappointed that been rough bigger had to give up his radio show a lot of quote unquote, distractions which I think. Outta town. So there's no reason to get rid of the radio shows. That's that's why I've worked working on. That's what I have. I worked on today. So I owning up. You know, what is he the weird thing about our dynamic with you? And I is we agree. Most of the time. So you're upset to the to give up the radio show. Yeah. 'cause he you know, he's a franchise quarterback. I mean how much access you really have to him as a fan. He doesn't do many interviews. Right. He doesn't do anything social media that was you know, and most of these radio shows are manned by backups, and and you know, people like foster who I love and I mean, he's foster. Nobody's gonna take his quotes and run with them. Found. Well, I only twenty minutes. I love that. He's giving it up because for a little bit of a different reason..
"kevin colbert" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"And then with football with the combine I don't know how much time you spent on that class week. I can't spend any time. I find that combine to be ridiculous. I mean, a real so there's a couple of people that'll put major stock into it and in GM's guys shoot up boards. Whatever I think most guys all lean on the Dave Gettleman theory of of checking out the tape. Quotes that come out of it or somewhat interesting. So have there's one team that Kyle Murray say that he would love the play for one team was the giants any would love to play for the giants. And of all the teams now apparently the cardinals are seriously thinking about drafting, I'm number one overall with Kingsbury. But that's something isn't that the report to that? I guess he's telling people privately that that's what they're going to do with the number one pick. And I guess they trade Rosen, I suppose that could be posturing to right, if he's telling people, then guess, then people say, oh, well, I really want you're going to take them. Well, let's blow away. What's your offer? Yeah. It'd be something like that. Now, I still don't think the Dave Gettleman would take collar Murray. I just for some reason I picture Gettleman going for the bigger quarterback someone who's going to stay in the pocket seems more traditional. Yeah. And Dwayne Haskins is more of that guy. So I see him leaning towards that. But that would be very very exciting. That's what I would be rooting for. If I were giant's fan of Kiowa Murray. Just because I think it would be exceptionally exciting. It's still have questions, obviously, the guy I guess he was measured at five ten so he's not five five ten in eighth five eighth. So it's something to pay attention to. And if they if they end up not drafting a quarterback this year, then just like, well, the only way I think they don't draft a quarterback in the first round is if someone teams move up ahead of them to get who they want meaning Haskins Murray has skins even he I think has had quotes about the giants. You'll seems like it would be a very good fit boomers been talking about Haskins for two months now, I would say maybe even longer than that in terms of being the next giant quarterback. So we will see it looks like both would love to come here and play for the giants. But now is the tricky time, you know, who's going to maneuver themselves position themselves to move up and get these guys ahead of teams that need quarterbacks. And do the giants where there or do? They try to move up a spot or two to ensure that they get the guy that they want if indeed they want one of these two guys, that's the thing. We don't know, you know, get them. And I don't know what the guys thinking. I really don't. I mean, we had the whole thing last week. Luckily, you were not here for that. Which was good. And I was glad boomer wasn't here for that. But I don't know. I don't know what they're thinking. I don't know what direction they go into they draft defensive player. We'll find out. I think the quarterbacks the right thing to do. But we'll see what they do at the spot. And we got NFL free agency coming up in just a couple of weeks. So we'll be able to that stupid little tampering period where people signed guys without really supposed to sign guys. And did you see the Antonio Brown's sit down? Yes, I. Lebron one of the Jeff Darlington. Jeff Darlington ones. The LeBron when he was funny, though, did you I did not see that one. But he was LeBron sedan was at the show. I forgot. That's where he really letting loose. I did not really letting I thought he let loose with Darlington. What he said about that interception in Denver. Yeah. He he said that. Well, Ben, see I can't say exactly right. But he said Ben told me that I run a better route man u s to a blanket defensive. I was I I'm not a fan of Antonio Brown's behavior lately. But that cracked me up and all the guys are just falling over land through that blank to a blanket. Yeah. Very very strange and then the Darlington. One just added to it house, by the way is eighteen thousand square feet. They showed a couple of rooms in the house. And it was I forget how Darlington put it. But it was something along the lines of he doesn't have this home to throw it in your face. In more represents the Klein that he has had from the twenty five miles south of where he grew up in a very tough neighborhood, Brian. So that reminds him how he's gotten to where he is and sure still going to go because if there's a guy that's grounded its Antonio Brown. Right. I don't know that he's grabbing. I mean, this is a guy who really always thinks about where he came. And we get into later the quotes about Tomlin to in the week. Seventeen thing are interesting. Yeah. Yeah. He he also addressed that in LeBron do about told him to just basically, go home. Yeah. Now, I don't believe. I don't either. I I mean who's someone's lying here? Yeah. I know. I would tend to think of believe Mike Tomlin. I would I don't know. And that Kevin Colbert the GM. That that line is going to haunt him forever. The fifty two kids to kids. Yeah. And Antonio Brown's right about that. I agree with them. It basically cemented point. Yes. Almost as if Kevin Colbert was working for Antonio Bryant. He basically tells Darlington. Now, you see why I feel the way I feel exactly all right is boomer and geo on the family Jerry in four boomer this morning. Just getting started have you broken any twenty nine thousand nine resolutions yet? We gotta get new copier. It's March or any what he's New Year's resolutions anymore. Are we? We are we still don't.

I set two alarms on my phone every night. Right. Never fail me. And I had a thing when I was in high school. If my alarm clock was right next to my bed. I was able to roll over and hit it and turn it off and go back to sleep and not realise it and one day. I like I woke up ridiculously late and missed the first two period. Yes. So I realized you got take the alarm clock and put it in a place where you get up and you actually walk. I've never had that problem since that. Right. So I got my phone on the nightstand. At the hotel, I got both alarm set. And the next thing I know the phones rang ringing at five forty four AM. And it's it's stats say where are you? Like, what's what's? And I looked at mine. My phone, and it said, no alarms. And it's no. Off sleep at turn both of them. All right, nothing better than waking up to a phone. Call from stats. That's a great one.

You look a little tired today. They're just going to say it. But other than that, you know. I'd love this. Thank you. This is the best thing. I'm not tired. I'm not sick. I feel fine. Just happened. There's no reason. All right. Was I went back to the room after dinner last night. I worked I went to bed at eleven fifteen.

And by the way, here's the guy who didn't get to see where we're doing this thing where we're doing interviews all week right after the show, and so we're trying to be very slick about it. So when we play the interviews it'll look seamless like so we've been here the same calls for a guy who went to bed in what he wore rolled out of bed at five forty four A s with emergency wakeup call and came over here in what I was wearing yesterday. So I do also kind of gross that you're wearing the same shirt is yesterday. We're supposed to do. You know? I don't know. It's just not Clinton cleanse cleansing for. Yes. Yes.

You didn't hear I don't know where I missed. I promise you I didn't. I thought we were going to wear like our NBC polo.

I'm the one that was on track until you decided to go down the I was late late for work. All right. Kevin Colbert was with his yesterday. And he said some things that I think we're very interesting, and we're gonna play some of them for you, two four interviews. Available proof profootballtalk dot com. Also, we had it on the PF PM podcast yesterday. But we asked Kevin Colbert about both Antonio Brown and beyond bell and want to start with Antonio Brown. Because we're at a point where it feels like the relationship isn't salvageable, and we asked Kevin Colbert among other things whether he thought at some point the relationship was salvageable, here's what Kevin Colbert had to say. Now, I think any any relationship is salvageable I've seen it. You've seen it game to game play to play week to week season to the next season. I mean players are very emotional. I know Antonio was very disappointed that we didn't get in the playoffs himself included. He wants to win the Super Bowl, and he's very highly competitive person. Did it unfold is as we all wanted to know world disappointed in that? Because you know, when when we spoke I said, I expressed my disappointment to him that we may not win a Super Bowl together. And if he goes into hall of fame, it may not be with us, and I'm disappointed because when I look at it I failed in not being able to to get the most out of that that group of players himself included. And I think he's disappointed and what we've all agreed on is. Okay. We'll look at maybe moving forward maybe moving on without each other. But again, as I've stated many times if it doesn't benefit the Steelers it won't happen. There's so much. We can say about that one thing that caught my ear as we were listening to that. Colbert saying that he failed to get the most out of that group of players. It's not his job to get the most. It's his job to accumulate. Somebody else has failed to get the most out of those players. Your name isn't Kevin Colbert. Sure. I mean, if if you if you were I think if he was rephrased that would go. Yeah, you're right. You're right about that. Mike tomlin. It's his job to get the most out of the players. Kevin colbert. It's his job to get the right guys in the building. Not only talent wise, even personality wise. I think you could say that too. I mean. Yeah, you gotta know what type of guy. That's why you know, teams organizations do background checks as far as just getting to know the players personality and what he's like off the field because they are they are thinking in the future. Wait, if this guy becomes a star. How is he going to act if we pay him a lot of money? How is he going to act as you can continue to buy into what we do as a team? And this is why we don't have issues like this with New England. I know New England's a special entity in that. But you know, what also caught my I mean every any any relationship is salvageable. Right. So to me, I I still don't think they're like, oh, he's definitely not going to be here as they're gonna let this thing play out. And the other thing is, you know, again, I just hope they they drive a hard bargain because they're on the hook for a whole lot of money, and they should not let a guy like Antonio Brown out the door for less than something that they truly feel is fair compensation for one of the best wide receivers and football. We'll spend that forward in a minute. But one of the reasons why they got to this point in the opinion of Kevin Colbert is their failure to make it to the playoffs last year. And he seems to think that they had made it to the playoffs. Everything would be fine. Antonio Brown would be happy. He would still be there. And I think this isn't a week seventeen thing as much as it's a week sixteen thing because after we met with Colbert, we kind of work backward is to where's the point where it all went wrong because it was Wednesday of week seventeen week while the Steelers were still alive, but they needed help. They needed the Browns beat the ravens in order to get in. That's when Brown went AWOL. I think it was week sixteen the loss to the saints in New Orleans if they win that game or if the ravens lose to the charges the night before then maybe there's a vibe that week. Seventeen. Let's go win. And we're in we're in the playoffs and everything's fine. So I think it was that week sixteen game that caused everything to fall apart for Antonio Brown. He had a big performance in that game juju Smith Schuster has the key fumble he gets named the team NBP a few days later. Right. And I think that all caused the planets to line up in a bad way leading to the explosion of the following week where Brown just said I'm out of here. And that that created the situation that led to where we now. Yeah. I think those were the all the examples you just us. We're kind of the final nails in the coffin. But obviously there was more to this than just that week or those two weeks. But I think it's a situation where it's always simmering. Yes, you're exactly right. Only takes one thing to turn it to boil that that turned it to boil that. This is all this has been there for the past few years. He and this is the one thing that turned the fire. He was on the edge of boiling, then he has the, you know, the so-called blow up at practice that we've heard about and that pushed him over the edge. And it was never salvageable. But. Even after that at least for that week. But then the other thing where I'll just push back against you know, what Kevin Colbert talked about a little bit is, you know. Of course, if the makes the playoffs and everything's ok well what what would happen. Then you tell me I wish I would've asked this yesterday. What happened? Okay. He sat out the game. And you made the playoffs. Let's say the Browns beat the ravens. Are you telling me that was going to be okay now that we made the playoffs? I think that's why he's talking about more week sixteen went off the rails sixteen. Okay. And and you're right now, I think that's another branch to this. If they had made it to the playoffs after he sits out the Bengals game. Shorted different. Then you got different products. Now, you're going into wild card weekend. And you're going up we're gonna play the receiver. We just sat out for breaking team rules and going off the radar. Let's play one more quick. Yeah. Leapt from Colbert what happens if the Steelers don't get enough in trade for an Tonio Brown. Well, again as a state earlier might players change from day to day week to week situation situation. We don't know how that would play out the way we've answered it before is we'll deal with it. When we get to that point again, we're open to it. If it works for both sides, great if it doesn't then it won't, and then we have to react accordingly. Not only the Steelers, but the player that may still be with us. We'll have to act accordingly. Look, I I just think that's news Antonio Brown. I think he's getting out or he thinks he's getting out. Yeah. And if the Steelers exhaustive process at the end of the day, they're not happy with the offer. And they say, hey Antonio Brown. You're still here. I don't think he's going to be thrilled with that we have to take into account the possibility. The Steelers are just puffing all of this. And they will take the best offer. That's on the table on March seventeen the day, the two and a half million dollar roster bonus becomes do. Colbert told us that they would pay him in theory, the money and hold him and trade him later. I don't think they'll do that. I don't think they will. I think that they're gonna take the best offer. They have on March the seventeenth. They are. I I don't think. So I think they're going to be willing to pay him this make it interesting. Yeah. I think they're gonna make. So you think they're going to pay him two and a half million dollars. I March seventeen and keep him or trade him later. No. I think they're going to yet. Both. I mean, either way whatever works out, but I think there are going to pay him, and they're going to wait this out because I think teams are going to think just what you're thinking right now. And they're gonna go, okay. We'll we'll throw some b minus trade offer out there for them on March sixteenth and see if they bite the hook and take that. And I just think they're smarter organization than that. And again, I just think with the way in Tonio Brown act, and it is good as he is. And everything about that. You can't let a guy caused functioning your team. And then just call the shots when he wants to get out of the team and go somewhere else to so I think they pay them hold them hostage. And try to find a good good trade partner. Gay take the best at dinner. Mcdonald's. Sure wherever you are. Next time..

"Harris's podcast on his official Twitter page, and he talks say music story that I just did. So I don't wanna put words in his mouth. You can listen to them under under own. But nonetheless Rothlisberger is is it. He is. He is. You know, I think that I ask you this lands. Kevin colbert. I am. I mean, he had to come out and say something like this because rob burger been drug through the mud like I mentioned if he were to say, you know, what our offense delete her on that offense is marquees. Pounds. No doubt about it. And what would that say about the quarterback 'cause the quarterback supposed to be the leader of your football team? And he wouldn't that make it worse. Don't you think? That's an interesting take Jeff. I mean, I mean, the leader of your football team is the leader football tea that mean that that's who it is. I mean, there's this perception are believed from fans that the Puerto BAC should be the leader of the football team. And you know, maybe that's an inaccurate won. The funny thing about the whole thing about been robbers com routes burgers carpets, and we talked about this. When he made those comments in Denver. I mean, we laughed on the show we say, oh, wow. This is going to be terrible. Like, this is not going to go. Well, like, you could just see this is a hand grenade. I mean, this is not going to go. Well, it felt like he said it in because he said it now the organization has to back it. He said, I'm the leader organizations. Like, oh, okay. Yeah. He is the leader. Like like, they had to back it after he said, but I think fans would perceive it in a very cure. I think you're right. I think fans with not. Absorb what? Colbert said if he said Markey's pouncey was the leader of the offense and leader football team, people go, wait a minute. Isn't it been is higher? But. Maybe it isn't. I mean leadership is leadership guys draw leadership from who they are going to organically. It's not gonna be just because you're the porta BAC or you're the highest paid player in the one thing. Also that Colbert said I found very interesting was you know, how they should Dwayne and get this information from Ben and so on so forth. And so that is revisionist history. Because you know, when the Steelers were winning Super Bowls. Been made place been was an integral part of that. However, those teams were defensive lead..

"So you can watch from anywhere coming up. Maybe Tony around is in the problem in Pittsburgh winding up to take shots at somebody else. You'll hear who right after this. Back on get up. And after Ben Rothlisberger through this game ending interception against the Broncos and a week twelve loss. He went on his radio show when he criticized the route that Antonio Brown had run on the plate ground, as you know, is now on his way out of Pittsburgh after a trade. Demand tweeted that Rothlisberger has an owner mentality. According to Steelers general manager, Kevin Colbert Robbins burger has earned the right to publicly criticize his teammates. These comments from the GM I've gotten a lot of attention. He said Ben is the unquestioned leader of the group. Like, I said, he's the elder statesman and the Super Bowl winner players were smart. They'd listen to him because he's been there. He's done it. He can tell them. No guys. What you're doing is not is or is not good enough to do this. And honestly believe that could be a burden on him more often than he may like to admit he's got fifty two kids under quite honestly, I want them to step up and say, hey ban. What do I have to do? Can I do this better? What do we have to do to win a Super Bowl? These comments have gotten a lot of attention. We're delighted to have Dominic Foxworth who's in town too, high noon later today was able to stop. By here and give us some perspective on that. So when you hear the comments calling the teammates, kids, etc. What is your reelection theory aiding obviously, and it's stupid because it doesn't help anyone first of all it's wrong. And it's a natoma to football culture everywhere that I'm so we've heard a bunch of players say yesterday that the mentality and a locker room is every man's thing. Bill Belichick trees Tom Brady. Theoretically, the same way he treats everyone else raising any particular player to a higher pedestal than any other players something that no football team has ever preached and believed it, and then the second reason why it's a guy who's a GM who's supposed to have good strategic vision. This doesn't help anybody. This isn't good for Ben Rothlisberger. When he tries to rent the locker room. This isn't good for his teammates. This isn't good. For tomlin's. Not good for the Steelers is not good for the GM himself. The only person that it seems like someone good for is Antonio Brown. Because all this does reiterate that things that we all we all heard Antonio Brown say, and we kinda discredited some of us discredited because all that Antonio Brown. But note, it seems like it is the case Ben has the owners. Taliban, and they support I was struck by how extraordinarily passionately so many football players reacted to this guys who are usually measured. Yes, why? Specifically, what is it that bothered people?.

"Well, I mean, certainly, Mike, the president was that he was gonna come in on Labor Day based on last year. I don't think anything positive can be derived out of the development of no Le vian fell, and it kind of tersely. The worded statement from Kevin Colbert. I have said all along that when they didn't get a deal done in July long term extension, this felt like a long slow slowly played out divorce on the way. And I think today's developments adds another another layer to that. I don't know what his play is here. I mean, eight hundred fifty. Five thousand per week is a good chunk of change. It's it's apprising when any player passes up that in terms of game check in the regular season, maybe he's trying to force them into actually sweetening the pot for this one year, but I don't think anybody has a good handle on where this is headed other than he might try to force a trait out of Pittsburgh before the Tober trading deadline. Did the message. Go ahead Brady is gonna ask with lady on bell. If if let's say all things being equal, he's not injured. He has last year has kind of his his year of where it shows value. Is he a guy that can redefine the running back market value because of his dual threat ability. It's possible, and some people were theorizing that he could do running backs, kinda what Kirk cousins did with the double franchise and then kind of pick your own spot and go with all guaranteed dollars. I just don't know. I don't know if that position has that kind of juice and that kind of clout in in the NFL for all the reasons we both, we all know the replace ability factor. It's it may be what he's trying to go for..
