"No that's crazy. I'm literally looking at that box right now and I'm looking at their defense, which is full of a lot of big time names I mean in so much that Larry Foot is the actual actually the only name I can really remember as a player in the NFL. Being sarcastic. Jackson was on that team. Julian Peterson was on that team. No, I have I should remember that game. I remember being embarrassed. About that I remember being the embarrassing. was that the year that we started out was that Zorn's second year yet Zorn's second year. And I think that was also the year. To the first two games. That we knew it had gotten worse. In your to it wasn't I year I wanNA share with you. This story I. Think I've shared it with you before but. you played the Rams in week two and the rams were terrible. That year recall the rams that year were not a good football team at all. and You Washington barely won the game. It was nine two seven was the final score of that game and it was a weird thing because it was like A. God there was a play with. with one of your offensive linemen God I'm going to blank on his name. where he recovered a fumble or picked up a fumble and advanced it news like the big play the game anyway. Yeah exactly Kendall. So I was doing the Zorn's show every week that week that year for two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine Tommy, and I did the Gym Zoran Show on radio, it would be every Tuesday and we would go out and we would do the show from the studio at the park in soaring would come in and I've told you how when he would come in. He would just then hang out and listen to the rest of the show like all he had nothing to do. But will this particular visit I remember I was going to have to ask him a question that was a big discussion at that point that was did he think that you know going into Detroit game against a team that hadn't won in a while? If that was going to be a danger game was he concerned that you know because there was a lot of swirling rumors already about how you know Zoran was in trouble and as we know that ended up being the Bingo caller year the whole thing. So he looked at me and when when I asked that question and he stared me down Cooley I, swear to God Tom you'll tell you he was so pissed and he just said he goes. Do, you know that we won the game yesterday and I said I'm very aware that you win the game. By the way barely beat the rams nine, two seven and the rams were horrible. I just looked up the rams that year I think went one and fifteen. They were terrible team that year the only team the rams beat that year were the lions. So you're talking about the of the worst and I said I am very aware but I also am aware of what this franchise's been since Dan Snyder, purchase the team ten years ago and That is that there are changes all the time that's the environment I'm operating in as not only a media member but also a fan at a team that when you know things look you know not great. The conversation immediately begins to swirl around the coach. So I'll ask you the question again. Do you think you need and I said at that point I became more direct and I said how big do you think this lions game is for you? And he just he really wouldn't even answered. He just was incredulous. He was like I just can't even believe you're asking that question he was very offended and the bottom line is moved on and when it was over when it was over, he was really angry and we went to a break and he said, how can you ask that question? And I said because it was a question that had to be asked and I said night and I totally respect the position that you're coming from, which is not being familiar with what this franchise has been for the last ten years and how many coaches have come and gone and come and gone quickly you know borderline hall of fame coach is like Marty Schottenheimer only lasted a year here. Steve Spurrier was here for two years. NORV only lasted a year and a half and I said. So you've been here for a year plus and you barely beat the rams and your one and one, and you're going to play a team that hasn't won in a year and a half in the conversation. You like this or not i. it sounds like you don't even know it exists, but is about your future in. So it's a question that as an interviewer people are going to want to know about and I have to ask and I totally respect the way you handled it. It's fine. It's what your answer was. I think my perspective is from being a part of of being a media member and following this franchise a fan since Snyder bought it, and yours is of being very new to town. You know you've been here for a year. And he didn't like it man he did not like it and Tommy to his credit Tommy immediately came to my defense he said. Coach. I've been a columnist for you know twenty years or whatever. He said that was I'm sorry. But that was a question that had to be asked. Or we would have been viewed is not doing our job. Because that's what's going on in time he was like, but you you know you handled it the way you handled it was your honest opinion and that's fine and it you know and but then it was really weird the rest of the year he would just hang out with us and listen to the. League was like he'd be done. It was a twenty minute thing twenty to twenty five minutes segment, and then he would just sit there in that studio and then during breaks he would say, Hey, when you were talking about this, what did you mean by like he was into the show and I like a couple of times don't you have worked do And apparently he didn't. Apparently, he didn't. Think about it. It's not the worst. If you keep talking about football, he's got his pulse on the media. Yeah. I'm looking through the the play by play the Detroit game we're down nineteen, fourteen sixteen seconds left on the Detroit thirty six Jason Campbell has incomplete pass intended for. Lulu. No idea what happened on that play it's crazy. Not Yo second team in complete short middle for Chris. Cooley, not a slight recall I know why I don't remember that now though. Why because that season I blocked. Blocked out. You thought he was a complete dope. So that year. Two Games later, we played Carolina and..

"As he says, I want to get hit I, WanNa get popped so that I know on back the game will kind of fall back in a rhythm and then he'll be able to move on. That's really the last thing yesterday. Alright interesting we'll be looking forward to seeing to seeing just how much zippy does actually have on the ball on Monday night. So but we'll see how that goes. It's I know Pittsburgh fans are are thrilled that that they're not watching Mason Rudolph and and whoever else try to play quarterback yet Devlin Hodges are duck as they call them with third string. That was it was brutal watch because you had to rookies essentially Devon Hodges was an undrafted rookie Mason Rudolph didn't even dress game his rookie year c zero experience and outside of the preseason mind you and you could just tell that above the neck is where the steelers lack, they couldn't checkout plays. They just couldn't read the defense well, the in terms of actual and os they were running near routes, and that's like high school football stuff and it was just it was tough to watch. It really was difficult they. They averaged eighteen point eight games points per game last season and didn't even hit the thirty point mark one. That's how bad it was. So yeah, steeler fans are excited. They're go. So let's talk a little bit Let's talk a little bit about the other side of the ball about the the Pittsburgh defense now obviously. steelers fans are accustomed to. Really really good defense going back. You know obviously going back to the Chuck Noll. Era. Going back all the way to to to Joe Green and and all of those guys just. Look at this Pittsburgh defense. T.. J. Watt but depre-. Coming off the edges minkah Fitzpatrick in the back. How good is this defense? I, think they're very good and they're so different than any of the other eras that you mentioned. You talk about the steel curtain in the seventies you talk about Blitzburgh in the nineties with Greg Lloyd and Kevin Greene and Rod Woodson Carnell Lake was part of that group even talk about the early two thousands James Harrison Lamar, Woodley James Farrior, and and Larry. Foot. In the Middle Troy Paulo Malo and Ryan Clark. The one thing that this defense has and I mean from defensive line all the way. Back to safety is athleticism they are freakishly athletic and they don't have I. Guess if someone were to ask me what is a modern day defense in today to twenty twenty NFL wealth? Should it look like I think it would be pretty close to Pittsburgh deploys there. So athletic with guys like what Watts, not your atypical pass rusher heated he doesn't have that build. He's just ridiculously technical with his game. Debris is a freak athlete opposite him let's not sleep on Cam Hayward Steph onto it in the middle. Devon is an up and coming star I believe at inside linebacker in his second year. Everyone knows about Minkah Fitzpatrick in what he brings to the steelers defense and then you have to lockdown corners in. Hayden a Nelson they are. Sideline to sideline speed, they are extremely versatile and they do several things very well but the best is getting after the quarterback in college wreaking havoc. In last year, they lead the NFL and takeaways they were I think second or third in sacks this team. Might struggle against the run, which is an interesting facet going into week one. But other than that they don't have many weeks I'll tell you that. So I guess maybe we should just cry mercy right now and and yet about Monday night. So way let let let me do this obviously you and I did a we traded five questions this week, which is something we always do. And I. Did not ask you to make a prediction. And I'M NOT GONNA. Ask you to do that here either because let's face it. You know you're going to pick the steelers to win I'm probably going to pick the giants to win although you know sh I did not do that. When I made my picks this week using the the tally site APP that espy nation sites are now using to to make predictions I actually picked the steelers to win. So you know my my giants fans out there you know just. Sorry guys? Sorry guys I. I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not gonNA give you a snow job. I'm going to give you what I really think but. What want to ask you is set up this game a little bit if you can. Is there anything you know? If you're looking at this game, just tell me why you think the steelers are GonNa, win this game, and if the giants are able to pull an upset and we did we did talk about this a little bit in our five questions if they're able to pull an upset. What is it that the giants might be able to exploit to get that done? So I know that I did a whole podcast by myself on our morning show that's to it's going to be out on Friday morning about how this game is not going to be a cakewalk for the steelers. Pump up the defense because the defense is really good. But at the same time is a weak link for the defense. It is in the running game and they lose J von Hargrave noticed and free agency to the eagles, and now they really don't have that stalwart in the middle. They don't use that position that much but they still just. Saquon Barkley is the key to keys in my opinion for the giants to upset the steelers. They have to play a clean brand of football, but they need to run the football. Well, if they can setup Daniel Jones for third manageable, that's where he's going to thrive. That's where every quarterbacks going to thrive..

When he was drafted in the fifth round, in one, thousand, nine, hundred six bill cower calls him up and so welcome to the steelers you said. Coach. Cower. I'd like to congratulate you because you just. Selected the best linebacker in the draft. His name was earl homes. You're. You're remembering of your remember of homes? He was like off. He authored. These guys had kind of like the same trait Dave really good at. Stopping the run, not so great in pass coverage, but they were tackling machines. He had five hundred forty six tackles. When he was here, he he was a starter for the late nineties. Teams through Oh one so. Yeah I. Like I saw him itself those village back in the nineteen ninety eight. We passed them right up. I couldn't believe it was him so. Era Homes I agr- tackling machine. He, he was absolutely tough. I love that guy he was, he was my favorite I thought he would make I. When he left here, he went to the browns. And he says you wish he'd never went a wish. He would have never left because the culture just wasn't the same in a lot of players, leave the steelers and like man. I didn't realize how great the pro the culture was there. He Jason Medley says Holmes was dependable, and that's exactly what he was I would've loved to have seen him. Stay the guy. Who replaced him. Was Pretty special to because when homes left via free agency, they brought in a former eighth round overall pick from the New York jets. From Virginia. Was potsy. Everyone else knows them as James Farrior. Was the is the next guy on that list. Yeah. He went to the pro. I, he was very pro. Yeah James Furry did go to the pro bowl and. I've. Just completely messed that up. I just talked about a guy. That's not even on my list. He did go. I love fear. I don't I don't blame you for that, so you can see you looking at the list and I just I just screwed up here the but the Guy who replaced basically homes also when he came in, was Larry, foote, fourth-round, Michigan two thousand and two. Yes, so he came, and he was playing around the time of of Ferrier. Longtime alongside failure from two thousand to two, thousand eight, and again in two thousand ten in two thousand and thirteen Larry, foote was another guy who wish he would have never left. He did go home to Detroit for a little bit. Then came back great career here Larry. Foots on that list in the guy. Who replaced Larry Foot when he left in two thousand thirteen was guy that still there. My man vent. We be Vince Williams so what we need to do here. We need to go ahead and take earl home Larry Foot and Vince Williams. We got to pick two starters. And one reserve. And I'm. I'm right away. Thinking Earl homes is is the starter. But, Live chat. Go ahead and pick the starters for me. Tony L. let's go ahead to. Up I'm. GonNa go with Larry Foote as my one of my starters, he he was on three. Super Bowl teams in the actually somehow, some way managed to become one of the leaders of that defense, which wasn't easy at a time when you peasy inferior and Hampton, and and all, although troy and he became a voice in that locker room, and he became a starter, so I'm going Larry Foot and and I'm actually going GONNA. Go with Vince Williams. Is My second starter only because? Unlike Jovan and stuff onto it I think we. We know what kind of player offense Williams's. He's A. He's a heart and soul. Kinda Guy You know he's a want to Kinda guy, but he's ever going to be a a superstar so and he's made a nice career for himself. Former sixth round pick out of Florida state two thousand thirteen. I love of Vince William, so he's going to be my other starter. So Gosh it If I'm not, mistaken. Vince Williams, almost pulled it out, but foot beat them to it. So foots number one homes. Homes just beat out vinnie. Just beat them out. It was close. It was really close its foot and homes. So that but Vinnie made it. Vinny is definitely there as a reserve. Absolutely, but foot and homes are is. Only fifteen minutes left in the show. And we've got to do the defensive backs so. I'm going to go ahead and read this list. Because, we've got a bunch. A bunch of This guy's not supposed to be on the list. Let me cross him off. He's a safety. We have a lot of quarterbacks so. We're GONNA. Take through here.

No. He was in school as a freshman when I was a senior because we went to some of his games. And then he got annoy your poisonous. Old sheriff. So I'll say Jamal Crawford and Chris young with me and Gimmie Lavelle Blanchard. And then I'd have to go look up who are the other. I mean, my my squad so to speak had four top thirty five NBA draft picks. Yeah. But my my guy Jamal Crawford in the NBA for seventeen or eighteen years. So yeah, I think there's been named like the sixth man of the year like multiple times. Okay. I still think I mean, you could you could throw up that poll if you why I think the the twenty twelve recruiting class beats the ninety eight recruiting class. I just do I'm sorry. If that hurt your feelings. Also, we can take it. We can take it to the softball field. 'cause I got Romo and Lawrence and soon Sala Lyda all Americans on that squad. Yeah. You might be you might be bone there. Mike arguably. I might be. What's your in me? Catch MS just saying nice like family. You got three softball tangent. Right there. I'm sorry. You're done. I probably twenty twelve probably was the best softball recruiting class of all time. Not sure not sure the master. If there's another sport rum ram really standing tall, though. I mean. Yeah. I I would go look baseball. I think baseball's when they broke their right around there. My time was wasn't as years later. I've look it up. There's something that was really good. Let's see here late nineties early hockey had just won a national championship the showed up on campus recruiting class, you probably win that one. I mean, I could have a drew Henson. And I could go out there and see with the longest pass so hockey. Let's see there is Trueba. There was cop. Yeah. I play with while item player. You're on the same line. Care malaria and commissaire you mean cavalier. Right, Kim layer Kimmel, Larry commissaire EQ. I remember that line the gambler Cam commissary expat line that was. It was it was pretty talent said. Yeah. You know? I I would I would generally just get off the get onto the ice take my lay down on the ice. To the other side touch the board scale back in the time. I did that Cam later would score a goal. So you're plus minus rating was pretty high thirty yet. I didn't have I didn't have a point. Yeah. So these spent most of the time chirping on the bench that was really bad. I was your highlight. I was I could take the stick and like smashed it against the boards. Made that noise when you're like when you're celebrating something for hockey. I was doing that a lot you just calling everyone ten out there you but your ten play out there. Ten ply. Either. Toilet paper. I. Okay. Surprise. You didn't get that one. But. Yeah. I've had to think if there is other prominent. Athletes who is in the two thousand twelve football recruiting class. The twenty twelve was that the worm Lee class. Yeah. I can tell you in a second. So. I don't know. So is Tom Brady in your actual like no year. Okay. So so for doing that. Okay. So if we're doing that then drew Henson was in my actual year. So as David Terrell marquees Walker Larry foot. Twenty twelve class. Let me let me let me see if there's some apples to apples in this. You had Blake bars. Russell bellamy. Joe bill. Russell Bellamy is a true freshman, always has Richard. Here's Joe Bolden. Ben Braeden J Chiasson. Okay. Jeremy Clarke, mar Darbeau. Devin funchess. All right Ryan Glasgow. Part of that recruiting class Willie Henry you had. Oh, I remember that Drake Johnson. Johnson. Probably probably get bonus points there because I was in high school classes with them. Dennis norfleet. AJ williams. Andrea Pipkins boy and Kris worm Louis versus Michael space. Nineteen ninety eight Dave Armstrong Jewish curry Hayden. Epstein adjusted Fargo's Larry Foote, drew Henson Victor Hobson Todd Howard, Benny Jaap ru Cato June. Dan, rummage shock David Terrell Markey's Walker. I gotcha. All Americans are in that group like four learn foot was an all American japa-. I thought he was. I don't know. But. David Terrell marquees Walker all Americans Victor Hobson was an all American so five and that doesn't include drew Henson Burke's Walker. The guy did the one one wanted to cash. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So he was pretty good. What am I first? Michigan football memories. Actually. All right.

"And there were a group of men James Farrior and Larry foot, and Chris Hoke, and Smith and keys, and Paula Malu and Hines ward men who did their job who showed up were driven who cared so much and realized how fun it was to play the game of football that didn't need any. They didn't any strict structure they were going to be there. They have that self discipline. And when Mike Tomlin came in. He had this group of veterans that didn't need to be for lack of a better word. Police didn't need to be treated like children and be told. Okay. It's not negotiable that you show up to a walk through. I mean, can you can you imagine any of those men just not showing up to a through and full L expecting? There would be no repercussions. If they didn't show up for walk through. And then the organization changed a little bit. And there there weren't leaders like that to kind of keep the younger guys in line. And there's a lot of the neighboring Peter. I mean, it's probably just like with your kids. If you let your daughter skip curfew five days in a row, should you really be surprised at on the six day, she's curfew. It's an excellent point. I think the one thing I've wondered about I wonder about the the effect of the death of Dan Rooney on the team on the structure of the team and on situations like this, and I'm not saying that no situation like this ever happened under Chuck Noll's watcher. I it. I mean, I don't think it would it was as severe. You know as a star going AWOL and being incommunicative non-communicative before the game. But I'm sure things happen. I I don't seem to remember. I think a lot of these things have happened post, Dan, Rooney, I think Dan, Rooney was e- both in the locker room and in the front office. And with the coaches highly highly respected in terms of he he didn't really have to he didn't have to display a huge amount of discipline, or or or you know, meet out a huge amount of discipline. He people just knew that you don't do this with the Steelers. And again, I'm not faulting art Rooney the second now, obviously because his dad died, and he's not his father anything like that. But I think the death of Dan Rooney is a major factor in this. That's not a minority opinion. Peter that's something that's been heard. I mean, I've heard that many a time from people within the organization and outside the organization, and as you're saying aren't really is a good, man. This is not at all to say anything other than that. But everybody has a different management style. Everybody has different expectations there, there were different feelings about who you want to disappoint and who you want to please that that's all part of this. But go back to having respect for people and. If you truly respect someone, and it's the phone call thing, Peter that just blows my mind. I don't understand that at all this man, Mike Tomlin has had Antonio Brown's back from the start from the time that he made him a six round pick because let's not make any bones about this. Mike, Mike Tomlin and Kevin. Colbert says Jewish general manager working up Luke concert together, they are aligned and picks are made by consensus with the two of them. So Mike Tomlin is responsible for intoning Brown coming to the Steelers as a six round pick. My palm Lynn is the man who helped make sure that when my when Mike Wallace held out. It was Antonio Brown who got a long term contract. Mike Tomlin is the man who after an Tonio Brown acted the fool and the Kansas City locker room made sure that Antonio Brown got the richest contract in the history of the NFL for a wide receiver. And then look at just this year alone. Okay. So they were meltdowns. There was a throne of a water cooler. There was a lot of nonsense year ago. My Tomlin coverage for Antonio Brown. But then this year going back to OTA's when and let me say this. I'm jumping around a little bit Peter. But let me preface this with this and Tonio Brown works harder than any other athlete. I've ever been around in my entire life Antonio Brown. Okay. Antonio brown. Also, I believe and you have worked fiercer than they. But I believe gets more out of what he was given than any other athlete..

"Got to watch that show blue mountain state. Yeah. It's it's funny man football bath you'd better watch parodies. Although like football movies and shows, but it's I think it's pretty funny. It's obviously, well if it's better than right now, I'm I'm being subjected to the marvelous MRs Mazel by my wife, so if he can save me from that a little bit actually for the kids if you're under eighteen do not watch it. But okay. Was that a hallmark movie reference? You just made there's no the marvelous MRs basil as a show on Amazon prime that sounds like a hallmark movie. It's actually pretty decent starters. Rachel brosnahan. It's pretty good. This is why mock drafts I just can't Rashawn Gary's number twenty five going to Seattle. And this new CBS sports wanna talk about Gary is off the charts. Postproduction production has met expectations part of those ways who's used in Ann Arbor replayed interior defensive line as well as ads rusher. The modern times he played interior defensive line is. Is a handful like I just when they do mock drafts. I don't know it's probably very hard to do because you're trying to scout essentially two hundred people or more. But that isn't a Romania statement. He. Yeah. It's like harbach can't develop a quarterback. Like, okay. You're not doing your homework. Right. I he's number two in McShane. I think mcshea McShane Kuyper both had them in their top ten. I think those are probably two of the stronger voices, by the way, we have not talked about it wants today, but Devin Bush, formerly nounce that he is a sitting out the game and going pro with a little bit of caveat. I mean, he he said that he he suffered a hip injury against Ohio State from rehab and the whole thing he is not yet one hundred percents. And so it's in his best interest with the with the injury to sit out the game. Then also announced that he was leaving for Michigan. He leaves Michigan with a very firm legacy in place. Yeah. I asked earlier today or I think I posted earlier today he ranks among Michigan's best linebackers of all time. And in fact, we'll start with our first six on six of today where does Bush rank among Michigan's greatest linebackers? I think this is a this is clearly a subjective type of question because everybody has couple of their own guys. I will tell you who who Michigan's all Americans are that have played at the linebacker position. Okay. You go back to nine thousand nine hundred seventy s Marty Hoff and Mike Taylor. Never sobs. They play wasn't born yet Calvin O'Neal has a great reputation. John Anderson, Ron Simpkins, I think many people think the Ron Simpkins is the greatest linebacker in Michigan football history. His their all time leading tackler. He had a terrific career in the NFL played for the Bengals he played in Super Bowls. Super awesome guy. If you ever get a chance to meet Ron Simpkins? I think I've said before, but you know, you hear all these stories because he's supposedly one of the toughest people. You've like football players have ever worn. The winged helmet. And you meet them in year. You see them in go down in Detroit to meet him in your like, he's got these big big hands. Like, he's he's about six two or so and you just look at them. And you your guys gonna eat me alive? He might murder me. And then as soon as he starts speaking. He's a soft spoken. He's like just an incredible gentlemen, one of the nicest guy, one of the nicest people I've ever met. So he's like a very different. I would be very I would have loved to have seen them on the football field in his heyday, comparative personality off the field but ransom gets his generally considered the best linebacker in Michigan football history. Eric Anderson in one thousand nine hundred one won the Butkus award which actually awards to the best linebacker in college football, Jarrett irons in one thousand nine hundred ninety six Larry foot in two thousand one in Djibril peppers and tell them sixteen are Michigan's consensus. I our first time first team first team all Americans. I would also throw in the mix David Harris who was a second team. All america. And how he wasn't a first team all American blows my mind in two thousand six Shawn cable in two thousand seven set Michigan's single season tackle for loss record twenty eight and a half and the other one that I would throw in there that I think is a very underrated linebackers. Bent was consistently good throws career. And I actually thought he was overshadowed by Larry foot and was a better linebacker was Victor Hopson. So somewhere out of that group is where you had the best linebackers where Devon Bush fits in is probably a personal choice for every individual fan out there. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he's got to be in your top five. I would think so I would think so I I won't say gotta be because you can disagree. But. What stands out to me about Devin Bush and admittedly? I wasn't really paying attention to linebackers until I started doing it for a job. So I haven't seen everybody. But. What's interesting Bush's? He's his numbers. This year were not like these off the chart numbers. And so to me like when he won big ten defensive player of the year. And when he was named a consensus all American. My takeaway was that he is just so impressive. That people didn't even need to know the stats. He just has that all American aura about him. That everyone who watches him says. Yeah, he's one of the best three linebackers in college football. And to me, that's a. That's a sign of a rare talent because he had eighty tackles what nine and a half tackles for loss. Five sacks six pass breakup? But I mean what he was able to do the angles. We saw him close out the pursuits. We saw make the open field tackles. We saw him make the hard hits, you know, the run stops being. I'm not sure what more you could really have asked for from him. Well, he's a list of his mistakes is probably like one hand long. So someone tweeted means don't you think David Harris put up better numbers, and I'll tell you what the hard part about comparing. And this is where even if someone says Ron Simpkins is the greatest linebacker of all time. I'll say, okay, I'm not going to disagree with you. And you say Devon Bush linebacker different eras different offenses that they played against very different styles. So this past year, Devin Bush didn't put up a hundred and twenty tackles you can go out there and find like a linebacker, I or linebacker or western they had one hundred twenty tackles. But here's the thing. Michigan's defense face the fifth fewest total plays in college football this year, fifth fewest total plays. So if you're Michigan seven hundred seventeen plays at the defense face this year. So if you're someone like Perdue, your your linebacker faced a hundred and ninety more plays than Devon Bush did this past year so one hundred ninety more plays. Not necessarily one hundred one hundred ninety more opportunities for tackles. But you get more opportunities for tackles. And so he didn't put a big numbers. But the other thing is too because I was talking about David Harrison numbers versus Devon Bush's numbers is in two thousand six you the number of teams that ran spread offenses was still in the minority in the big ten. So you had north western ran it Ohio State. Ran it other than that wasn't this proliferation. Like, I mean, it wasn't all over the place. And so David Harris faced a lot more offenses where they where the ball with his defensive line with guys like L andbranch. And Terrence Taylor weren't playmakers in the middle of defensive line. There are more fun Allers. They funneled things to David Harris. David Harris made plays. He was always in the right spot at the right time. I mean, he didn't miss tackles, which was one of the best things about him. And he made a lot of big tackles two in the backfield. But things were funneled towards them. You can't in today's couch football funnel things very often to your middle linebacker because of the abundant. Silence of spread offense is out there. So I think that you can't really compare numbers. And when you think about if you want even when you wanna do and say, well, yeah. But somebody at Wisconsin had twenty five more tackles than him. I would say, okay. Well, how many more plays Wisconsin faced this year than Michigan and the answer is sixty five. So every one of those is an opportunity for that guy, Devin Bush as you said sideline to sideline he's he's he and Ian gold and Larry Foote are the three fastest interior linebackers Michigan's ever had to Honey Jones also on that list. But his was at another level. He made every big play that you need them to make. He was very good against the pass rush. I would put them out easily put them top five. I would have a hard time saying who's number one and number two because of the differences offenses that each of these guys has faced over the years. All right. When we come back. We will ask recruiting who has the best chance at playing a major role. For the wolverines in two thousand and nineteen. That's our next six nine six. Donald talk. Stockton fifty w.

"James Farrior guy does a straight ahead thumper you had Larry foot when he was shown. And then as James got older and he retired, you move Larry foot over at Lawrence Timmons. Was that speed guy? Obviously, Ryan shazier had become that dime. Backer coverage type linebacker, and you're right, you don't have that guy. Now, if you look at some of the things that will highlight it from the week before the Kansas City Chiefs and Travis Kelsey, they were attacking the Pittsburgh Steelers in the scene and many of those times. It was Bostick that was giving chase. And so teams are going to do that. That was the smarter pros by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And we saw at work, I think, was even more troubling to me as you look at them on the back end, not just the linebackers, but at cornerback having rotate guys trying to find somebody that could play opposite. Joe Haden who actually played will in coming backlash, let law last night. Also, you have two very young safeties in Edmonds and Davis. Ken, those guys started to evolve and kind of come along experience wise. So you get that strength down the middle, and I just don't think it comes together enough for them this year, even with this offense to be a team that makes it to the Super Bowl and everything that you just said, if you're the Steelers, do you trae levian belt? I believe you do. I believe you trade them to try to get something for. I think James, CONNER has shown a, he's more than capable to play the running back position. And when you have the other weapons you mission, you mentioned juju Smith Schuster early. Obviously you haven't Tonio Brown. You have been rothlisburger when you have the other weapons that you have even though I believe on is the most skilled all around back in the game, you have enough offensively to produce points. Maybe you can get another defensive piece along with. It's interesting that you say that because everybody's always talking about what Khalil Mack, what the, what, the what the rate has got to return for Leo MAC. They got two first round picks and what have you. My attitude is guess what if you move Levy on bell, even though I'm not a proponent of that if you move him for an elite second, an elite secondary piece that's might be something that's worth it. Plus you don't need just that you need something else, but at least that I mean, you have to get something on top of that, but the way it looks now Levey I'm Bill is not going to be a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, whether they trade him this year or he goes somewhere else in free agency next year. So why not get something back for that peace? And especially if you're this team, you feel like you may be one piece away from winning the Super Bowl, one secondary player, one linebacker, and someone is willing to give you that for him in hopes that they could sign them in the future. I think you have to make that play because we've seen what an elite defensive player can do when he goes to a new team, Ryan Clark right here. It was Stephen ESPN, radio and ESPN news, Levy on Belle reportedly the New York Jets have contacted the Pittsburgh Steelers. About levian bell. Now you've got different points of view. There are some people are saying, look at the jets history. You got cap space chloride, one hundred million dollars next year. Go get him. Now have a wink, wink de aware ultimately, because he's evident as the NFL of your team, your prohibited from signing him to a long term deal because he's been franchised about by the Pittsburgh Steelers, can't do anything like that before March, but you wake a wink, wink deal. You get them on board. Now, others of the mindset that you wait because you don't know what levian is going to do. You can't trust him with the wink week deal is what they're saying. Because again, if his loyalty doesn't allow with the Steelers, right? Where else is it going to lot? What level of thinking falls under you as Ryan clock? Well, I think there there are some teams who are probably ready made to win if they get Levy on who don't have the cap space..

"These programs is organising fully here. I go to work every day about my business and I don't take it for granted. You know, my business is win here. I come to win and a win win. Downright on pissed off your facial expressions, ran the gamut of emotions through that sound bite. What do you do? You not buy into Tony Brown insane do, but the end is near. I think we're seeing an end of era. Their window is closed thing. He started his mortality, he and his stance. No lay beyond bail ban teeter on retirement for the last couple of years. They have no defense. They can't stop anybody to win a shootout bans holding onto the ball. And when he does that turn overs com. Saks common eventually concussion skull. Let me ask you about their defense because we know what the numbers are up until Chaisiri got hurt. They rely on seventeen a game since crazier got her to the end of last year into this year. It's twenty eight a game that is second worse than the league. The rush defense, internet church, third worse than the red zone defense is an abysmal. Giving them touchdowns eighty five percent of red zone drives that's worse than the NFL by far but it can't. They had an off season to figure out the Shazia injury and they've got personnel. They don't have the cap space to fill this. Whenever you're running three four, you have to have impact player at linebacker in that safety. When you think about all the great three, four deepens even just look at the the organization of Pittsburgh jobs organization from James Farrior to Larry foot to to Pala mal. You had to have people that can navigate their zone type of scheme. And now what's happening is they can't get the pressure with his own blitzen and it's creating tremendous voice and they can't stop the run. You know the first thing that the Pittsburgh has always been about making you one dimensional. They can't do that right because the got the other. I'm glad you mentioned inside linebacker and safety because the personnel everywhere else is pretty light Cam, Hayward, Steph onto it. Yes. I like Duprey teaching what? But it has been a bust. I mean, you just put it with neighboring home. Would you call him James Harris? Those guys are they're out there. We'll Call call enjoy enjoy. layer peasy, not Joey porter, so they brought him in first round draft, pick impact player, how many sex? He's been a disappointment. Okay. So maybe he hasn't been exactly what they hoped you would be? I think buses to show what regardless TJ what has been an impact player. And so I like I like their personal, no, they haven't had Joe Haden, but what what? I'm not mentioning their inside linebacker and safety, and you're saying for the defense, they run defense, you're that type of defense very successful in that three four, that's what they need. So maybe that might unlock part of the reason because the defense doesn't have the personnel that says, even without shazier that they would be this back. Yeah, they're going to struggle with the red runs that's runs in between the tackles. And of course those inside linebackers they haven't found somebody to feel the Shazia void. Now, in terms of safety, they burned a first round pick on Edmunds to safety from Virginia Tech, but you saw him stiff Kareem hunt at the goal line on a receiving touchdown, and that was bad. So the club, you know what you're dealing with a guy that can't necessarily step in and be impact player. In the middle of that field and Nick, we talked about it earlier. If you can't control the middle of the field, it's going to be hard to play defense. That's exactly where the Pittsburgh Steelers are so and terms of what they're going to have to do to win games as a team. Their offense is going to have to win the day form that means being able to win shootouts. You're gonna have to match points with a lot of teams. Now you're next four games. You're on the road a tap on Monday night. Then you've got Baltimore and Atlanta at home, and then on the road at Cincinnati before the by week. Now, outside of Baltimore, they're not talking about murderers row with those defenses..

"Falls on Mike Tomlin. Okay. Because you knew going into the season later on Bill was going to beat, wasn't going to be. There was a chance that he wasn't going to report. So you should have squashed that ROY off the top and been like, look would not want to talk about a guy that's not here. We're all about talking about guys in the building because the programs. Usually with girder Tate with the head coach purchased to the team, and I have yet to see their from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Right. Well, I'll say this, Mike, Tomlin again, going back to what he, I thin had the veterans there and they handled the locker room. So I was shot as your shock as followed. Mike Tomlin was his shock to hear his players speak out about another player about strictly business decision. So that one I can't put on my town because there's never a time if I'm a coach or player that I'm walking into a locker room and about to hear other teammates, talk about another player about their money. I've never seen that before and we talked about that. You never talked about someone's money, so that one I can't put on the coach. I can't put the rest on the coat. But when you have that open up, they opened up a can of worms when they started that the team opened up. The leaders opened up a cancer at the end of the day, how much of this is about Levy on bell? Not being there at the end of the day is all this stuff. All does come from Levy on Bella. Defensive walls are based on Ryan shazier not being there, maybe Antonio Brown's frustration, clearly about levian Bill, not being there because he's the one person that came up publicly with support in a tweet. Thing we will be here when you get retaliation. Jack, I just can't give. I can't give these guys out because guys not day it's the same thing as if you if there was an injury, would you would you? Would you give that out if there's an injury? No, it's the next man up and you gotta keep playing so to say that, oh, we're living on. It's not there and the cost. I'm not going to get these. Maybe it's the fact that they're handling that he's handling it as he is, and the team handled it as they did that has a lot of those guys in that room disillusioned did is your classic distraction. I always think that this word distraction is overused. But in this case, it really seems to be a plaque. They seem to be distracted me. It goes back to Mike Tomlin. It goes back to Mike Tomlin because it needs to be one voice in that building that says, you know what? Forget lady on Bill. He's not here. Okay, we got to focus on the next opponent, which is Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That's the most thing that's the most important thing creek. Final thought. You alluded to something. I know a couple of those former leaders. The mar- will Larry foot that kept people in line in the locker room before the Pittsburgh Steelers. I agree with you. This is why employer young people to play sports because it doesn't necessarily Bill character. It reveals it and you talked about how you're going to behave when you're winning how you going to behave when we struggle. All right. We have much more on this as we go. And we get back to Baker Mayfield who finally got into a game last night and snapped the Browns nineteen game winless streak in his debut plus the Browns win-drought was long. Tiger Woods. Winless streak is even longer over eighteen hundred days since he'd last one on the PGA tour, but he's in position at the tour championship. The highlights on the way,.

"Seriously first off what a steeler this isn't a smart move how 'bout you find a way to get a roster spot and keep him on the team for the intel reasons you just described because guess what's going to happen when he goes to the patriots he's gonna help them a lot hey what a big biz weaknesses tell me some about levy on bill what's going on antonio brown hey what does the defense thinking on this play all tom brady's can all levels of intil from james harrison great signing bought a patriots just like another gotta got away from pittsburgh gear blunt what happened when he left pittsburgh to go to the pets oh he led the league in rushing touchdowns gotta super bowl championship horse we seeing this before i'm disappointed in ma pissed verse still is because again the ruini rule fan of their family mike tomlin is one of my favorite coaches i rooted for the steelers jerome bettis lamar wooley larry foot their family but the dealers botched this one big time so number one i think we both agree on this it's clear we don't believe the james harrison as a double agent we don't believe the steelers release james harrison to go to the patriots to actually play the intel in reverse giving false information leading interesting leading off it patriots in the wrong direction why would you think i'm not going to go to the patriots because i'm loyal to you when you release me around christmas what i'm saying is we don't think there's anything machiavelli and both of us in this from the steelers perspective we don't ranked they're playing the deep conspiracy here it's too much for me to believing other late leaves oh we're going to release james harrison he's going to go to the patriots to give them all incorrect information is going to help too much horse and who must that's way too far i put your point about luke air blunt in all the guys to go to the patriots and even those former steelers they go to the patriots terrain highs i think that doesn't x look i'm not indicting james harrison i think the man should be able to do what he wants he's still play where he wants and i'm certainly not indicting new england patriots organization for even picking up in telling swimming they get nothing on the field which by the way.
