If there are no more positives, then they can practice today and then head to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers tomorrow night. Washington will play the Steelers this Sunday on a short week. They are undefeated as of right now, and On Rivera, as noticed, along with a lot of other people why the Steelers have been so good over the years and the reason they've had three head coaches in like the last 40 years, And I think that's probably the big reason for I mean, you think about it, who they've had. If they've had three, and I think that's what it is, has been the consistency up top. It's been the same family owning it. It's been the same general manager I believe for like the last 20 want to say almost 30 years, Probably and now Mike Tomlin is one of the longest tenured coaches in the league. So I think consistency really is part of the most important thing that it does have some success. They've had a little success. Yes, they haven't beaten right now. And they'll play Washington on Sunday. Ravens. Hopefully, tomorrow night tonight, it is Seattle and Philadelphia on money. United Football College Football.

What is the game plan heading into this baltimore game. Brian will with you well. It's funny because if you're looking on the offensive side of the ball.

You're checking twitter and you're like on another one another one of many start seeing stealer names and luckily it wasn't the landslide that it was with the ravens.

We could go when we were doing the post postgame show and we're like oh man. How are we going to squeeze everything in before this game. How are we going to squeeze everything in for this game now. We still got two more days to go for it. It's just crazy. It is now a longer time between from one. The game was supposed to be played to win. It's hopefully still scheduled to be played than it was from the last game. Two one. it was supposed to play. You know what i'm saying. The only had the four days. Now we're going on five extra days. I'm happy that the team got their got three days off. That's nice but for some reason today. I actually have the feeling that this is going to happen. Tuesday for the longest time. I wasn't sure. But now. I'm getting the feeling i mean especially watching the four denver broncos today that that i did this is going to happen. I think that they feel that. It's contained enough that that it's going to happen well in the. Nfl did make a statement morning stating that. They felt that they had a feeling that the outbreak that took place within the organization is gonna be curtailed. A little bit is any other extra positives or other outbreaks of any kind would be from the community spread meaning that a player brought that in on his own not from the initial case which was a strength and conditioning coach who must have been positive but hadn't tested positive was Had symptoms did not tell. Anyone wasn't wearing a mask did not wear his contact tracer he basically had the trifecta of things not to do when it comes to the nfl protocol and he just said caution in the wind and now here we are here..

"His usual tuesday press conference gets bumped up a day. That means monday noon. Tomlin spoke to the media. Tuesday practice wednesday's practice and then thursday's game day so mondays actually a working day. You'll probably also hear me today. Given injury reports that means if you're paying attention you had jeff with the post game. We heard that this morning or maybe listened to yesterday on sunday. You had jeff. Let's write a twelve. You've jeff right. Now at the mike tomlin recap and then you're probably gonna jeff again With the injury report podcast a little bit later. That's too much. I think even my wife would say that's too much. jasper here. We go. Mike tomlin talking about the game that was he recap the win over the jaguars. He said he liked the steelers efforts. Speaking of the offense he said there was definitely an upswing in the run game he. He liked the way they're trending. He said it's not a finished product. You need to continue to improve. He said that he loved the fact that they won the time of possession battle and he really attributed that to some short yardage Success with the run game. Especially you mentioned. Benny snell junior on special teams. He gave a ton a props to marcus allen. Marcus allen your and what does he have to do with anything. He was the one recovered the onside kick after the jaguars went down and they kicked a field goal on their first drive. They were trying to get the ball right back. But marcus allen with the heads up play able to recover that he was asked later in the press conference about that play. And whether that's something this year's practice or whether that's you know basically that they always use it we go over everything as much as possible. With special teams in any even on offense defense preparing them for what could happen and not being reactionaries of the. We've been on our ps and qs. Because the last few weeks he thought talked about dallas they did that throwback punt return that god that gash the steelers the bengals they did a fake punt that gash the steelers so teams that might want to try to trick the steelers on special teams now might not be the best time based on the fact that they've had it happened to them teams are trying it. They're going to be on their ps and qs when it comes a special teams on defense. He said they made it tough. On the young quarterback a jay gluten they had four interceptions. He's pleased with that performance. You hold a team three points in the national football league. It's hard to be upset. Anyone to injury. So he actually. This is the actual order of events in case he always talks about injuries. I he didn't today Maybe it's because it's monday. i dunno. He did say zach gentry just like he said yesterday after the game suffered significant knee injury. He said that he doesn't have any long term prognosis right now. They're waiting for scans to come back. All he knows is that he will not be playing this week. I would doubt that. I would be shocked. If he doesn't get injured reserve alcee. He did mention some in game injuries. A big name players. Joe haden quarterback wide receiver juju smith schuster. He said that both players even if they didn't were able to go back in the game if needed to be but obviously they didn't have to go back in therefore he's this week though they're gonna let their availability guy. But this is the one time i'll talk about this. I'm sure on my Injury report podcast. This is the one week a year that a player could potentially miss practice all week and still play Look at a guy like joe. Hayden is a veteran. Look at a guy. Like juju smith schuster. Who even though. He's only twenty four. He's the most veteran wide receiver they have on the team. This is a situation where even if they don't practice this week. They only have to practice that they could probably go play and they would be okay so this probably the one exception to that rule but he said they are going to see how they are this week in terms of their availability. He said the trai edmonds jalen samuels. Trey edmunds miss. Last week with a hamstring. Jalen simmons with a quadriceps injury. They both could return but again they're gonna have to work than back in practice. They respond before they can actually deem them to be ready now later in the later in the press conference. He did not mention this with those injuries. he was asked about vance mcdonald. Now has macdonald has been away from the team because of the covid nineteen. He was positive case He been on the reserve list. He said that he is scheduled to work this week. He has been cleared to return but they are going to wait and see how he responds to that work before they decide whether they're gonna you know. Put him back in the lineup. Right away. okay so because of that. This could be a hate to say because gentry gets hurt you hates anyone get hurt but it could be good timing for the steelers with vance mcdonald coming back in gentry going out They have some options on the practice squad with raider and a couple others the vega promote someone. If they had to but still he's scheduled to work. That's good news for vance mcdonald as he comes back off the covid nineteen list. He talked about the baltimore ravens. They just played them a few weeks ago but he did say that there have been some changes in this ravens team. Since the last time they played mainly on offense. He called the evolution of dobbins. Jk dobbins running back rookie from ohio. State was obviously he's he's featured running back now. Mark ingram is time with an ankle injury. He missed the last game against the steelers and really said the dobbins is featured runner because he thinks he has more of a perimeter game. He had a big game against pittsburgh the last time they played. He is the guy for the baltimore ravens in the running game. But he said you know. Some things haven't changed. Obviously lamar jackson is a triple threat. As a runner a playmaker and passer mark andrews on third downs in the red zone and you also mentioned dez bryant as bryant was signed to the ravens practice squad right before the game against the steelers few weeks ago and he said he's getting he's getting more and more looks. He expects his role to expanding it. More as the season progresses so i think he had four catches three or four catches against tennessee. Look for him to get more involved in the game on. We twelve against pittsburgh on thanksgiving night next. He went to the defense societies. It look. they're playing a lot of men up front. They've had a lot of injuries. Claes campbell's out. Williams missed the last game nd how derek wolfe didn't play or was banged up the last time. They played the steelers. He seems to be healthy now. He's a look. This happens across the league. You have injuries you gotta make do. But they have quality death. He said there are formidable. Defense he kept it any went straight straight to the steelers offense against that defense. He said the steelers cannot have slow..

"The undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers air dealing with covert 19 issues. Ben Roethlisberger has been placed on the reserve covert list so of three of his teammates. Including linebacker Vince Williams, with Mike Tomlin confident of their availabilities long as their tests come back negative. We believe they're all four guys have an opportunity to be made available to us. Or Saturday. Somebody guys have more experienced. Another, um, is so little lean on that experience guys like been in this. Williams may have an opportunity to suit up and play for us this weekend. And they'll simply work remotely.

"Those physical reps is a good thing. He mentioned that last week they had them available but they had no intentions of using him against the cowboys unless they absolutely had to. They didn't have to or fortunate. There but williamson was a part of them meetings virtually last week so hopefully he said this week they get him. The experience at home need so that if they need to use them they can. He did go back and mentioned that both rothlisberger and williams based on their experience is a factor in how they play this upcoming week. He did mention that. The other two hawkins samuels do not have as much experience and so there's a good chance that maybe don't play. If everything comes back negative it'll be interesting to see how the handle these situations. It's new for everyone. Within the pittsburgh steelers organization they have not had a positive test amongst their players since before training camp. So by tomlin said they're going through the protocols he says it's been very eye opening is how he worded it in regards to what the nfl put in place for this. The vast about derek. What and he was asked about. The fullback position is at an excuse for the steelers failures in short yardage. He said it is not an excuse. They have to be better. They had players were capable. He said that Mondo is someone that is played fullback before for the steelers that really. They could've used him but they didn't so not having derek whyte available at the last minute was not the reason why the steelers failed twice on fourth and one or less against the cowboys and then also they brought. They asked him about the special teams. He said. Look what it wasn't one thing you know you talk about the the blocked extra point. Getting a lot of pressure on uncertain kicks the returns but the punt return and kickoff returns. He's load the special teams. The cowboys just beat us in that category. We need to coach better. We need to play better. We need to execute better. And so the only other thing that mike tomlin really talked about was the upcoming opponent. It's hard to believe he did get to the upcoming opponent. The cincinnati bengals. He's in my gosh. It starts and ends with joe burrow. He's extremely impressed with the young rookie. Out of lsu top overall draft. He says he can make every throw a great decision maker. He has escape ability but they also have designed runs for burroughs. Well so they're gonna have to be cognizant of that as they approach this upcoming game a week ten and he he's one of my favorite football quotes he's got quote unquote moxie meeting the guys a captain on the team for a reason he certainly has. Those characteristics team likes to follow him and he has a lot of weapons. He talked about tyler boyd. A lot his ability to play in the slide. They're familiar with him being a pit product. Aj green. that's a known. Commodity mentioned tee higgins at clemson. He's a big target for them. Of course joe mixing and geo bernard coming out of the backfield. They're all very versatile. Are three down. Backs mixing has missed the last two games. I believe and but bernard they haven't missed a beat. It's gonna be a tough task. Offense of cincinnati is very versatile. Their record does not really indicate how they are a dangerous football team. We'll put it that way from an offensive standpoint defensively. He said that. Carl lawson pass rusher out of auburn is definitely on their radar because he can get after the quarterback. He's this is the first time in a long time. They haven't had to plan against carlos dunlop and he is happy that they don't have to gain plan for carlos unloading more. He was traded from cincinnati to seattle part of the trade deadline. He said that they're using gino. Atkins in a different way now that they've changed their defense a little bit. He's more of a special specialized pass. Rusher only used in specific sub packages. But they still have to be prepared for him and he did mention bates and their safety tandem very very good in the back end and he. He said that they are good defense. Obviously tom always pumps up the opponent and for those that are wondering. I did. Forget this part i apologize. He was asked about the backup. Quarterbacks who would play who would get the majority of reps obviously they have mason rudolph they have joshua dobbs they have a devlin. Hodges on the practice squad who would get the majority wraps. He said that there were work. We'll work both quarterbacks mason rudolph will get the majority of the work but joshua obviously get some. The better quarterback will play it. Looks like mason. Rudolph would be that guy ben. Rothlisberger cannot play for one reason or another and then he was asked about rothlisberger being getting limited reps. This week does that. Worry me said no. He thinks the time off will be good for his body. He said look. He's not concerned. Because a ben roethlisberger work during the week is mostly above the neck and that stuff that can be done virtually and when asked about whether the virtually is a concern of his. He said not not at all he said. This is nothing new. We've installed an entire offensive and defensive playbook virtually this offseason so he has no concerns about that whatsoever. So there you have it. Folks the mike tomlin recap if you don't want to listen to all the questions and all the answers and all that stuff. That's what this is for to give you the low down and dirty all the stuff that you need. It's important that.

"Press conference happens every tuesday at noon eastern standard time. And in this week there was a lot to talk about. Sadly not a lot to talk about as it pertains to the upcoming game against the cincinnati bengals. Add heinz field on sunday in week. Ten had everything to do with cove. Nineteen the corona virus. I get it you. Sometimes you get fatigued with talking about this stuff. But it's a part of the nfl in twenty twenty two part of everyday life. Twenty twenty so. Mike tomlin no he did start off the press conference doing what he always does. And that was referring to the injuries. Injury update some very positive news for the steelers three players that were hampered with injuries. The past few weeks have a very good chance of working their way back and potentially playing this sunday against cincinnati. mike helton. who's missed the last three games with a shoulder injury. He's scheduled to really tested. I get a feeling that they've been working back slowly. This is a weak that they've probably been targeting to say we really want him to have him back for this game so he's going to get a shot to actually participate tyson all wallet. Who was injured in the first quarter against the baltimore ravens two weeks ago and missed. The game against dallas boy was his presence felt in both of those games. He's a huge part of this defense. Maybe we didn't know that before but we do now. He could be working his way back as well. This week's that's really good news now. The mystery was wide. Derek watt wasn't playing on sunday. He was inactive in everyone myself. Dave scofield all wondering the same thing. Why is derek wad. Not playing and mike tomlin was asked about what and he said that. He basically suffered a setback or he reinjured his hamstring leading up to the game on sunday in dallas and so therefore they didn't have them available to them so he'll be working his way back but mike tomlin said that all three of those players had a legitimate shot at playing this week. So good news on the injury front there. He there were a lot of other bumps and bruises associated with play. Nothing else of note really. I couldn't believe he said that. But then later he was asked about rothlisberger and his knee injuries and he said again really just kind of bumps and bruises nothing that he didn't think would hinder his availability on sunday. Take that for what it's worth. Then he went into the obvious facts. That vance mcdonald has been the player that tested positive and he is out this week for covid nineteen. He's been tested positive so he will not be playing this week whether he's as symptomatic symptomatic a positive case means you're likely to miss at least one game. Then after that ben rothlisberger gerald hawkins jalen. Samuels and vince williams. All are on the cove reserve list. Not because they tested positive but because they were a high risk close contact they all wear those contact tracers. The nfl looked at that data and said these four players were around mcdonald enough that we feel that they should be put on the reserve list. And does it put them in jeopardy of playing on sunday. Yeah but it all depends on how they actually test of ben. Rothlisberger doesn't test positive for covid. Nineteen this week vs two straight negative tests. In five days. He'll be permitted to return to the team. That would be on saturday. So up until then williams hawkins samuels. Rothlisberger will be tested daily. They will be working remotely. And if everything goes according to plan. They'll be back on saturday for the walk through now. That doesn't mean that it's a guarantee if one of them test positive then obviously you're they have to do this all over again in regards to who was around that particular player. So let's say for instance rothlisberger test positive. While he's guaranteed dimiss sunday. he could potentially with knicks. Miss next week's game as well which would be against the jacksonville. Jaguars and florida. But also they have to do. All of the same protocols with close contacts in high risk of people would be added to the covid list. We don't no one wants that to happen. Okay steeler fan or not. You just don't want that to happen. You don't want the coronavirus impact life too much but in regards to the steelers in the nfl. That's what the policy states so as of right now the steelers on the same path of the baltimore ravens were last week when marlon humphrey tested positive. Right after the steelers game in week eight they had players go on the reserve list. All those players continue to be negative and they were back with the team with the ravens when they played the colts in indianapolis on sundays hoped fingers crossed. That's what happens in the the worst part about this would be that they don't have aunts mcdonald available to them this weekend. Of course he was asked a ton of questions about this everything from the fact that advanced mcdonald was sick last week and he missed practice on friday for being sick but he tested negative. He was asked about you. Know what in the what what goes into that he said look there really is. We're just following protocols period. were not. we're following the protocols of the nfl gives they're not adjusting them. they're not skirting the rules. He came any tested. You didn't feel well. They didn't practice in. They probably send him home. I tested negative so he traveled with the team because he was well enough to go play. He played in the game with any said sunday night. That test comes back positive and said that changes everything. But they're not breaking any nfl protocols as it pertains the sick players. They're doing what they can as he said it to. Keep everything at bay. So what is this going to look like for the steelers this week. Mike tomlin already outlined that to the media that all meetings will be virtual that includes group meetings so tight end. Grew running back group linebackers. Whatever all those meetings will be virtual and that includes individual meeting so for instance of rain defeating. There's going to be with ben rothlisberger which they. I'm sure they do multiple times. That'll just be do be done. Virtually and not face to face the only times players will be in. The building will be for walk throughs and or practices any type of treatment or anything like that that needs to be taken place. They will have a schedule so that they are cycling. Players out and not having everyone congregate to try to minimize the impact. The one thing that they don't want to have happen is an outbreak like the tennessee. Titans had earlier this season. Which certainly impacted the pittsburgh steelers in a lot of ways and we all been through that before but as mike tomlin said. They're doing whatever they can to make sure that this does not only impact their team but also the game coming up on sunday. The nfl's already bumped back via flex scheduling from one o'clock to four twenty-five but at the same time they don't want the game to have to be moved. They're doing whatever they physically visibly can do to potentially keep that at bay to make sure that everything is goes off without a hitch so those were really the covid news. I guess is gonna call it that. But there were some other aspects of this that he did talk about for instance avery williamson. Okay avery williamson with vincent. With with vince williams not going to be able to practice this week. He said he's looking forward to seeing avery williamson. Get out there for the first time with physical repetitions to be out there with his new team-mates so if there's a silver lining in this cloud vince williams still able to play on sunday then having him get in there and get all..
"mike tomlin" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Mike. Tomlin is not the first to get a win. The black head coach. Okay you talk about something his story. This the first time that we've ever seen to black head coaches meeting in super bowl we got. We got the first african american head coach to win the super bowl. We got the first black quarterback to win the super bowl. And i know doug talked to doug a couple of months ago. It was the stigma that was placed on the black quarterback. There are a lot of there are a lot of lamar jackson's. There were a lot of column. They didn't get the opportunity to play quarterback. Yup now they're getting the opportunity because of what doug d. and yeah skipped. Ain't nobody give a big black view. So i was fortunate to have spent a week with doug williams at grambling in his final year. Grambling when he should have been the first overall pick in the draft and he fell the way to seventeenth because gm's thought oh he can't think on his. Yes okay. So we get that. But i i got to know coach rob as they call them wrong. And you're right. I never thought of him as anything. But the greatest coach ever he was right there with bear. Bryant me like in orem mystique didn't think of it was a black head coach at an quote unquote. It'd be a historically black college right okay. So now maybe we need to leave all that behind but what we don't need to leave behind is the fact. We only have three black head coach right now. We got to fix that. That's just wrong. What are we said. The league is still seven at least seventy seventy percent black and we have three black head coaches and two of them are really on the rise right here right and the thing is with a black head coaches is that their land is a lot shorter. Yup i mean jim call will have really one losing season and he was gone even after he had gone through. Took a team to the playoffs. Twice yeah matt patricia. Even come close to get to the play offs and they say well we want to see over. You know he no. He understands what we expect. What jim carl did. Note jim. Colwyn producing it matt patricia. Get on tv and talking about. He had a lot of work to do interesting. I appreciate you bringing this up. Yeah i mean. Look mike tomlin. I love mike tomlin. Mike tomlin went to william and mary. My brother used to go down there because he would endorse nike nike on a clinic. My brother was mike tomlin. receiver coach. We do that in every time he sees me. Tell you brother thank you can thank my brother game. A pair of shoes and a teacher. Some tell you brother. Thank you appreciate what he did for me. Appreciate what you do. I love my combo. Skipped mike tomlin is a great coat. Not just a black. Got it tom. That is great at what he does and he just happens to be black. I don't look at it any other way. i look into a and good for white cotton. Look at bill belichick goodful. But that is what they do. He wants to be measured by the success by the other coaches his peers. That's why we're going to be judged by peers. Okay so final thought should we. You will often identify a black quarterback having success and point out. Is that okay to you to continue to acknowledge that black quarterbacks obviously we'll we'll we'll move but the but the thing is is that we don't compare black quarterbacks to black quarterbacks we compare them to the greatness of that position lamar. The black quarterback get compared to tom. Brady and peyton manning and drew brees into other great then not compared to warren moon to randall cunningham. Mike vick true you might say. They have similarities. But the you played that position you compared to other great. That's yeah not just go on of color and played them. I got it as you said yesterday. Lamar jackson is going to have to throw the ball. More effectively to win in this league. Correct yup really interesting discussion guys appreciate both of you. Bet sharing fans there no..

"The piles are always falling forward they have a lot. Of Good push on that on that upfront. But also you mentioned the skill position players utilizing their tight ends, wide receivers, Humphries Davis and Brown in even talked about Ryan. Tannehill, how he just took completely different quarterback in Tennessee than he did with Miami and he talked about the play action pass in this direction that they use really sets everything up you have to stop the run. There's a reason why he said that I if the steelers can stop the run than the play action pass isn't necessarily going to be a factor because you don't think they're going to run. No. One's going to bite on the play fake he went over to the defensive side. Talked about how to really new Group A, lot of phases like Logan Ryan, a bunch of others that are you. You're so used to seeing them and the titans blue with a blue helmet they're not there anymore, and so one of the names it is well two names that are new that he mentioned. Judy cloudy wasn't signed until rate for the regular season, but he's a member of the. Tennessee titans. Now he's got a minimize Judean cloudy, they move them around so much but he did say that it was really good. The fact they prepared for Jj Watt and week three in Houston Texas because they move around so much. It's very similar not so much from a player's standpoint he even made sure to stop say he's not comparing them from a player's standpoint because they're vastly different. But the fact that the defense moves them around a lot they're. They basically have done that already wants to just have to prepare for him again. Also, victim easily is someone that they picked up and they're starting to get more comfortable with him as defense goes the defensive backs, doctor, Butler Joseph being the veterans, but he really mentioned how this defense in general is very much. That can switch quickly. So they'll go from three four look into a four three look in sub packages a ton of personnel groupings they throw out you. So you really have to be prepared from an offense standpoint to be able to move the ball in diagnose what the defense is trying to do. It's not going to be an easy task Mike variable certainly as a defensive mastermind and has his fingerprints all over that Defense as Mike Tomlin understands that this team is a three, no football team whether or not they play this game is not. Really didn't matter Tomlin based on the fact that he only knows one thing that's to prepare his team and they were told, Hey, you're Tuesday should be regular Tuesday your Wednesday should be a regular. Wednesday. Until you hear otherwise in he has yet to hear otherwise. So that's that was his breakdown of the upcoming game with the Tennessee Titans. US asked a couple questions about specific players whose S. T. J. Watt and how he's gotten better he's look he's I thought he had a heck of two thousand and nineteen season but he said his attention to being continually better in everything everything that he does is second to none that he seen since he's been coach that. He's always trying to be better. He's always trying to look for weaknesses in his game so that he can improve and be the best player that it can be. He was asked about Anthony McFarland junior he's asked did he earn more time and he said, yes, he absolutely has earned more time. He's had a lot of good practice. He says tough spot that position being a young player in that he was able to really get acclimated to the game and the game was not too big for his very pleased with what he saw from the rookie out of Maryland's first debut carrying the football against the Texans he had a couple nice runs and then he was Asked about player that shocking the head monastic about, and that was Gerald Hawkins the former fourth round pick from lsu that the steelers drafted that went and he was traded to Tampa Bay then he was cut from Tampa Bay and he was on the Houston Texans practice squad in the steelers picked him up when Zach banner towards ACL and Chook Sikora for takeover right tackle and Hawkins has been that tackle eligible player. You know everyone knew got familiar Zach banner a come in and he'd be wiping his the front of his Jersey showing the official that he is the eligible receiver on the play. That's now Gerald Hawkins his job and he said that he thinks that. Is they call him has done a good job getting back on a moving train with Tom went on that I love and he really likes the contributions he's bringing to the team. He's allowing the offense to have the versatility that they want in terms of okay. We want to run a jumbo package or run that extra tackle out there. That's something that they always liked to do they did it all sit last season Zach banner they haven't really had the chance to do it banal with Hawkins back in the fold that's a role that Hawkins is actually held before with Pittsburgh steelers he feels that they're better suited for that other than those questions in those comments. Tomlin was asked about more questions about the input he had and the upcoming Games and really he had no answers for those. So I can't urge you enough to stay tuned to behind the steel curtain dot com for all the latest news we were right on top of the stories. Today, we had everything David Dave Scofield did a great article about the scenarios of how could the steelers and the NFL and the titans juggle their schedule to try to make things work. If they choose to move the game we had the breaking his.
"mike tomlin" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"That's right. It is Tuesday in and that means my tom was at the virtual him in zoom meetings and everyone was asking questions and he gave plenty of answers. As we always do. You know you look at the situation, the steelers or to and no one would say that they're playing perfect but they're to no you can't apologize about who they have on the schedule. They've beaten both of those teams that they faced, and now you're looking at the situation with the Houston Texans Jj Watt to Shawn Watson they're all coming to Heinz field this Sunday for one PM kick and the first thing the might Tom and always addresses is or are injuries. He was very open about how he was pretty pleased. The fact that they didn't add any significant injuries to the list. They had I guess a week ago. He's a the injuries. It may be happened in game that were not significant, but could lingering could limit some players early in the week he's Tyson Ottawa with a knee buddipriyo shoulder and then deontay still with that toe again, he does not feel like any of those injuries are significant. But if you see them on the injury report, that is why doesn't want anyone probably freak out unless there's a setback mode I, would say all three. Of those players are probably going to start and play it hopefully play well on Sunday at Heinz field. Next, you have the fact that David Decastro big news with him. Tomlin said that he is set to participate in practice in some way shape or form this week how he responds to that practice in his overall availability in practice will dictate whether he will be able to play this Sunday at Heinz field at one o'clock after that. Might Almond did recap the week to win over the broncos. The steelers won twenty six to twenty one. He said his straight out right out of the gate. They were not perfect and I don't think anyone that watch that game would suggest that they are perfect. But he mentioned that they were highly penalized I think they had eventually I think ten penalties for eighty nine yards. Some of those were absolutely backbreaking in my opinion none was more backbreaking the punt return Nulla that nullified deontay Johnson's touchdown I know that the next play from scrimmage was an eighty, four yard I'm sorry. Yeah it was an eighty four yard pass from Ben Rothlisberger to Jay's Klay four touchdown. But still it's a dynamic play. You hate to see a return like that in my town was asked about the officiating eraser unity you. Chocolate up to note preseason. The officials haven't gotten into camps and got the practice on aircraft. He's alive we don't make excuses. But at the same time I could definitely tell that some of those calls were bogus in that call on Cameron Sutton on that punt return was bogus beano speaking of injuries I'm sorry speaking of officials I should say. The steelers are going to be bringing officials into their practices this week this is not new. They've done this in the past, but after your flag ten times, many of those defensive pass interference is holding calls. Mike Tomlin clearly wanted to make sure the officials were brought in said, they can help the players understand what they're looking for why they're calling what they did. This is a good move by Mike Tomlin I duNno. If every team is doing this I, know no teams had officials in training camp but Aveiro now allowing officials to go to actual facilities in help that is A. Genius move for Mike Tomlin and he said he was asked about the logistics of bringing them in and how many people are there? He's we're working on that right now they're gonNa get it honored out and look at those guys in there. So great move by Tom under bringing officials absolutely genius. Then he went on to talk about the Oh into Houston Texans, the Houston Texans. They have lost and he mentioned this to possibly the two best teams in the AFC in Kansas City in week. One in Baltimore Week to he's called the team hot. They are a hot team as it relates to urgency. Maybe a little hot under the collar too because they haven't won a game jj watt was quoted by saying he's sick and tired of losing and. Mike Tomlin ended the maybe the record was not reflective of the actual talent on the team. He mentioned the captain's Shawn Watson and Jj Watt spoke a lot about the offense and the weapons that they have David Johnson and Johnson running back he mentioned the wide receivers, Fuller Brandon Cokes. Randall. Cobb in any talked about Watson himself and how to Shawn Watson doesn't just have the armed talent. says the improvisation skills to be able to make plays when it looks like nothing is there he's ability to Tuck the ball and run his ability to just it's very Lamar Jackson ask and that's something that's dealers definitely are used to dealing with. and. He did say that this challenge defensively for the steelers is going to be drastically different than the last two weeks with last two weeks young quarterbacks in Daniel. Jones in week one drew lock in week two in now the sudden you have to Shawn Watson, he's a veteran. He just got paid this this this off season he's got a skill set. That is really Not. Comparable to many other people you talk about Lamar Jackson maybe Patrick. Mahomes from an arm arm level I. Don't know. But he's easy. He's a unique beast in Tomlin definitely waxed poetic about him on Tuesday during the press conference defensively Jj Watt as Wordstar ends I mean this is a I, think a two or three times defensive player of the year. He's a perennial, all pro not mentioned probo been a little injury prone the last few years but still he seems to be healthy and he is going to be coming along the watt. Family Reunion we'll hear enough about that in the coming days leading up the week three but he also mentioned Cunningham at linebacker roby cornerback in read it safety as quality players at the steelers are going to have to identify every single time they step on the field offensively so that they can make plays and avoid the drastic mistakes can happen with any type of opportunistic defense from there he went on to answer some questions. This is not to go through every single one but just in key ones he was asked about Eric Ibrox, and the fact that Eric Iran has only been targeted seven times so far in two games in a lot of people myself included thought that Eric Brown would step onto the scene and have a bigger role than that in talented look it's early. That's exactly what he said. It's early he said it needed a lot of these iron themselves out. Sometimes it is a plan sometimes, it's just the fact of they need to. Figure, out what's working what's not he's early he likes what Hebron has done so far he viewed feels a he's going to be a bigger part of the offense as the season rolls on. So for all those people wondering about Eric, he brought what where is he? What why is he not getting the attention in the targets? Basically saying that. Stick around you may want to get your popcorn ready I. think that might be changing soon us asked about capable chase capable. More along the lines of him is a football player. If you haven't noticed chase cables also, really good special teams player as he's had some big plays as a receiver in the first two weeks but he's also made some big plays in the special teams area and talented this all started down at the.
Browns dealing with injury questions at tackle
"Us some news about steelers running back James Connor. Yoshimi sprained his ankle last night Laura now, Mike Tomlin said they're going to leave the white on them for this weekend. So they don't believe it's overly serious, but obviously couldn't finish last night's game in penny snow came and finishes the weeks second leading rusher play very well. Philip, he's got a case turf toe. He also didn't finish last night's game. The team is opening that it's mild. He's hoping that he'll be able to go. This week but PHILP Lindsey Nursing Turf Twenty three to Jerry painful for running backs a difficult injury, and of course, the bears right now are dealing with an unhappy Allen Robinson who today took off his social media pages all mentions of the bears he's unhappy with his contract situation. He's in the last year deal. He'd like a new contract and the fact that he is basically removing references to the bears on his social media platforms. An old trick also a new trick, but it also tells you a lot about players mindset, Alan Robinson not happy with the bears at this point in time.

Is Homefield Advantage Dead?
"WANNA start here eight and I think this allows us to get in week fifteen you mailed me some stats last week And now we saw again today. Road teams were nine and six against the spread. The road teams won all nine of those games outright for the season road teams against the spread. One twenty five ninety three three and five there thirty two games over five hundred while home favorites Through fifteen weeks or fifty seven eighty one in five twenty four games. That's amazing right there. And we have had over and over again these double digit losses. We just had it today again with San Francisco cousin. Sal I ask you this homefield advantage dead. It might be there might be. I think you said you said it in basketball you were saying was dead. It's funny yesterday on text exchange. But yeah if you're looking through your pools and you have to pick sixteen games a week if there are no bison. You're going six and ten every week it's because you're taking home favorites. I know I know it's hard hard. I know when the better team is laying six at home. It's hard to not circle the left side but stay away. It's very bizarre an extremely bizarre week. The raiders was ending that Falcons ending the Vikings first half cost people money the way that ended obviously the Redskins Eagles. That might have been the worst ending if you had if you had the redskins the plus points Or if you're going against Cooper cop in your honesty semi funky you hold. That thought we were talking about that. I think what's interesting to me. I I remember I wrote about this at the end of last decade ironic. I think Oh eight zero nine I wrote about this trend with with the NFL where it didn't see my homefield matter the way it did and then we had settled into this eight nine year run. We're homefield still mattered. But not like a date when we were growing up where it was like. If you went into somebody else's house also really hard to win and then you get to this year and I think we're seeing it with basketball to serves texting boat this weekend. I think there's three reasons I think the first reason is the secondary market. And the fact that you just don't have stadiums anymore words just completely fans for the home team yet so it it always seems to be more splintered than it used to be. The tickets have gotten way more expensive so I think that's that's Priced out some of the crazies. You know like some of the friends wrens. You had grown up some of the friends that I had back in Boston. It's just harder for them to for tickets and then I think the third thing. There's been so much talk about civility ability at games and you know fan behaviors. Just been a huge spotlight on how people behave and what they're allowed to do and yell. Oh and all that stuff and the crowds just seem Tamer and we saw today with the raiders. Blew a game late to Jacksonville Euro and this was the last I Oklahoma Game. It was on those on that. They're not gonNA lose their last home game and frigging g Menchu when right down the field out and then we saw it again today with Buffalo. It's like Ow Josh. Challenge when push comes to Shove Jiaxuan is not GonNa be able to get points in Pittsburgh. The crowd will take him out of it their defense no Josh Allen right down and scored. I don't know who has the great home field advantage anymore. So we'll Josh Allen didn't have a great game no thirteen completions. That was just an. I'm sorry I Pittsburgh Burke might still make the playoffs and I pray that they do because I have. They're the only team I could see betting against in that first round like I have a feeling on any other first round match unless Pittsburgh goes to Kansas City. I mean they've they've got in the last five games in which the supposedly hot they scored fifteen points a game. It's just Mike. Tomlin did as much much as he could. He can't do what you can do for this offense. You can't fake punt from his own twenty eight every week. I'm sorry but I think you're right. I think it's all the things you said. I also I think. Road teams coaches management has figured out the exact amount of time a team should spend in the opposing city. You know it's easier to travel now all that kind of stuff so there's not that much The jet lag isn't as big a concern. But you're right. We used to see division winners at seven and one eight eight. No now aside unless you like the packers this cowboys eagles four and three Kansas City foreign three at home like even the really good teams. You know Houston only five and two at home. Buffalo's GonNa make the playoffs only four and three at home i. I don't know what the reason is but trust us. These home teams are not. They're not better than they were five ten years ago. Yeah and I think that Tennessee Games are good example right. Yep didn't really seem like it mattered. Where that game was played and I don't think it's GonNa Matter Week? Seventeen either right now. The crowd was was good. They were into it but it wasn't like wasn't like the Shawn Watson was going to be affected by the crowd. We left out another reason that I think matters maybe Charles back to our childhoods. But you know the headsets the head facing the helmets and the and the QB being able to hear the offensive coordinator being able to move faster and the the even somebody like trubisky you know they were in that game that I know the packers won by eight. And if he didn't see the game you just assume The packers they were up double digit second half but the bears were lingering in that game and there were a couple of moments era when it seemed like they had a chance maybe to force overtime and I didn't think h Bisky who I don't think is good then look scared but he. He certainly wasn't rattled by playing in Lambo. So I stopped when when you know the we've been doing million dollar pegs you and I have been. We've been betting all season. I've really stopped looking at home field. They're very very few times. Do I say to myself. Oh my God that teams home. I really really love having the home team here even even tonight I bet on Buffalo. Hello at Pittsburgh. And as you said Josh Allen wasn't great but they were still able to move the ball and they needed to and their defense certainly traveled. It didn't seem to matter to them where they were playing. And I just think we throw homefield out. I don't know where it really matters anymore. Well if we go into the playoffs saying I just can't see so and so winning at ax EXC. There's not that many of those anymore right right. Then probably win their game at home and you know the niners or or or award seahawks over wax or they'll have a by but you know those some of those row teams near Green Bay will probably win at home but you can't say unless it's dot co dot com is going to Kansas City. I can't really say Buffalo. There's no way they're winning in Houston right or anything like that especially when you get to the one to three seeds when they match up so do you think is Seattle place that you feel like homefield battered team in the playoffs That's probably top three but not as much Chisato did eight years ago when Tony Romo had to go there or something like that. I don't think it's slow because think about what are they foreign to Yeah about about their last couple of games whether seven and one on the road I mean it is scary arose team right there. Last couple of games Minnesota went in there and put thirty autumn atom. Yep and then the game before that James Put thirty four on them in that game went to overtime I don't know I I wanted to start. The season isn't yeah. It's not the
Oregon player apologizes for tripping Seton Hall player during game
"One other note on Oregon freshman forward Luke war issuing an apology for intentionally tripping Seton hall star forward miles Powell from the bench he'd ever got in the game stuck out his leg and tripped Powell during organs to point win over Seton hall on Wednesday night it brings back memories of Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin doing the same thing from the sideline tripping the ravens Jacoby Jones would appear Jones was headed for pay dirt on a kick return Tomlin stunningly was fined only a hundred thousand dollars for that not suspended issued a written apology and said he'll have nothing more to say about it and he never has said anything more about it that was six years

"Everyone Devlin Hodges will be the starting quarterback for the Steelers is Sunday against Cleveland Heinz field by Thomas reasoning Hodges won't kill them really she doesn't expect him to suggesting that Mason Rudolph has killed them with those recent interceptions Ramon foster says Hodges will be Los or trying time doc right now but I I think there is one of those guys when you're at the point that he is he's just having fun with it when you play carefree like then you know like Hey what's the worst that can happen he's going to make some plays mostly did this past week yeah not so funny guys the nursing injuries and Tom a didn't seem overly optimistic that you just miss Schuster James Caan arose in X. would be able to return Sunday that's a one o'clock kick off against the Browns at Heinz

New England Patriots release Antonio Brown
"I Antonio brown owner is out of the NFL and one of our favorite guys do I have on the show. is of course Steven A. Smith and let's see here what Stephen a Smith has to say about the latest saga. Antonio brown being released from the New England Patriots in the race for the top spot yeah do you expect to see Antonio brown in the NFL again no I do not obviously one will look at his talent. and one would say obviously with the NFL with their bottom line tendencies will want somebody like him and they're willing to tolerate somebody like him. my response to that would be although it is absolutely correct that there are people who's done who've done far worse than Antonio brown that managed to be in the National Football League I would bring up the name calling captain if only for this reason man they talk about Colin Kaepernick every day on their show every day they talk about him it's unbelievable his decision to kneel and in owners eyes compromise the bottom line they wanted to send the message to discourage others from following him in the future being pioneers in certain movements Antonio brown directly attacked Robbie craft how do you think that scull flow with the other thirty one owners in the National Football League I mean if they take bottom line issues personally as it pertains to dollars what do you think they're going to make of personal attacks aimed in the direction of an owner yeah not gonna like it ain't fly with that that's right I said I could like it but Stephen says Dane fly with that let's get to the personal side this man Antonio brown decides that what he wants to do all allegedly is the text messages that he sent out about the the the the person accusing it would you know the sex the second charge against them he said thou pictures of her children in the meantime he also made sure to talk about big band yesterday he talked about Robert Kraft yesterday he talked about Shannon shop yesterday okay he brought up these folks names how do you think that's gonna fly in the locker room he's call it Ryan clock a sellout he's attacked ju ju Smith Shuster how do you think that's going to flow he set up the and went after my Tomblin I am sorry to Mike Tomlin under the bus how do you think that's going to flow this man I've given credit for this he clearly doesn't discriminate he's attacked everybody. I don't. tech teammate tax contemporaries he has pulled no punches okay and he has shown that he can absolutely positively not be trust that I will get I won't even get into this what does great article we have you take into account having a tank filled the Parana's but that's all. and having a personal valet and and and and all you know personal staff to give up what this man has earned all right here's how much she's earned answer web around how much as Antonio brown earned in his NFL career all at all. in millions Bender
NFL Week 2 Monday Night Football
"I thought Mason Rudolph all good it from what I saw just looking at the numbers this morning in the first half half with primarily big Ben I know he departed at about the two or three minute mark of the second quarter or with a two or three two or three minutes remaining in the second quarter rather but you look at the first first half steelers four point three yards per play forty two percent success rate with Big Ben in the second half five point nine yards per play fifty two percent success rate with Mason Rudolph off. He looked pretty capable. There's a reason they moved dobbs so I think you know things. Look a little better for the steelers offensively. The problem album is Mike. Tomlin's defense fell apart in the second half gave up eight point eight yards per play in the second half once. Big Ben goes out right. It's on you Mike Tomlin. It's on your defense inst- to step up and shoulder that increased load instead they regressed right in the eight point eight yards per place in the second half doesn't include the the monstrous pass interference appearance. Call there on edmunds for additional thirty eight yards so steelers. This is kind of the fear we had. We kind of just assumed roomed. It said Hey lady on bell didn't play all of last year no Biggie they seem to make up for that but all of the losses on offense Mike check the offensive line coach. Now you're dealing with James Caan as well left with a knee injury. We'll talk to Dr Trial about that. One see what he says now. You're on the road traveling across the country face San Francisco. It's going to be interesting to see. It sounds like you'll be Mason Rudolph under center yeah very very interesting to see how some of these things kind of play themselves goes out and you always wonder how these teams rebound with some key faces that may or may not be there and of course the steelers staring down the barrel of that Owen to start. We'll see if they can get things corrected as you alluded to their trip on the road to San Francisco but as is the right of oddsmakers and better like you typically see overreactions in week two by the time you get to week three or starting to get a better sense of who some of these teams are and identify how these numbers need to be set figuring out for some of those situational edges so when we look at the look ahead lines for next week pay not a ton of overreaction in the market by any stretch you do have the packers on a look ahead number go for six and a half point favorite now to more than a touchdown touchdown chalk against the Denver Broncos who have to wipe themselves up off the deck knowing they let a glorious opportunity against Chicago bears. Get away from spot on Denver had their heart's ripped out. There obviously not going to have their early season altitude advantage here like they had a week ago. There's whispers within the locker room not all the players. Here's Love Vic Fangio's old school coaching style. If you start doing oh or you win a game like that and you're one and one suddenly players let that slide by but when you're in two you now you're an eight point underdog on the road. Let's see if they can overcome that once. Leflore script were off though for Green Bay and the Vikings woke up the packers offense was back to sucking again and you look into doubt just on the day four point nine yards per play for for the green offense the final three quarters the packers offense averaged three point two yards per play a forty percent success rate and Rogers had zero explosive passes fastest final three quarters so still some things to figure out offensively. They're for Green Bay came out with their hair on fire much much Dr Chagrin but that was kind of after the first quarter the the pace and the output we we kind of handicapped and projected there for the Green Green Bay offense yeah and they even gave were gifted at touchdown for the Minnesota Vikings when they turn the ball over to take that fourteen nothing lead out to twenty one but we're not gonNA cry over spilled. Milk will continue to look get some of the numbers for next week to massive point spreads. That'll remind you a lot more of college football than they will the national football league. I couldn't even tell you in an historical context when you're GONNA see two favorites favorites of this big magnitude pain look ahead number for the patriots thirteen points. Now I know Sam Darnold of course was factored into this look ahead number with him. Being out regardless of how the jets perform tonight against the Cleveland browns you're looking at the pats a seventeen and a half point favorite yes differing numbers on the look ahead. One shop had the look at as low as ten. They actually produced that before the Sam Darnold News obviously so you have patriots than Bennett. They've outscored their opponents now. Seventy seventy six to three you know Antonio Brown is a go. It looks like a real factor and it's not just Sam Darnold. That's going to be down again right. There's other guys that have some injury question question marks for the jets interesting see where this number goes right. I think there's going to be a lot of movement. Obviously it's not open everywhere right now but you know trevor sending in the jets pull off off an upset tonight or if they get blown out this number is going to head in different directions right. I think if the jets get blown out you're probably looking at closer to twenty if they somehow pull off the upset victory probably turning back down towards two touchdowns.
"mike tomlin" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Tony Gonzalez in the bar area Errington back time now for a big story. Let's move the Pittsburgh. steelers fell to the seahawks yesterday. After Ben Rothlisberger left the game with an injured elbow the team announced been will have surgery injury and we'll be out for a crushing blow to Mike Tomlin's hopes for this season which was supposed to be a bounce back year after missing the playoffs last year. This smells like the exact same scenario destruc- Andy Reid right before he got out of Philadelphia. They went four four and twelve. He was fired and needed a fresh life someplace else. That's where I think we're at with Mike Tomlin this smells like four and twelve and Mike Mike Tomlin to me. Despite Lavar Endorsement Mike Thomas the head coach a Atlanta Falcons next season. Oh man you go in there. Wow both not gonNA to do good. Wow look speaking of Andy Reid. This Mike Tomlin is only third in terms terms of winning percentage as active head coach behind that Andy Reid and Bill Belichick so should he be on a hot seat absolutely not not by resume never losing season season now by resume but will he be because of the conversation because the back of class is talking louder in front of the class that has actually paying attention. He will might be good for Mike Tomlin. Oh to he may want I've been cut before. It sounds good after you cut but not before. Oh you might land on your feet while my air in the first place this is this is unfortunate set of circumstances when you talk about Mike Tomlin woody suffer in terms of loss of talent for various reasons whether it's injury whether it's distraction or whether it's the one wanting to know their personal value and worth whatever it is no more killer bees out there in Pittsburgh Pittsburgh as we were saying and this is really going to undermine what he's done in terms of being a stabilizing force despite all of those personalities and issues shoes unfortunate. Maybe there's a silver lining but for me. He's not on a hot seat for the world at large on certain years. Some say that you know adversity doesn't bill bill character. It exposes it. I look at this Pittsburgh. steelers saying first of all. Mike Tomlin in general is usually on the hot seat. If you pay attention to Pittsburgh steelers news and a lot of times people look to to say well. Maybe he's not the coach his team one thing about the Pittsburgh steelers dealers that organization stands behind their their higher coaches. There's only been a handful of coaches that have coached there. I don't think that this organization is a knee jerk reaction organization that will say okay an implosion. That could possibly take place. I I don't I see them possibly being six to seven one team this year. I don't look at the Pittsburgh steelers organization saying in a rebuilding year. You lose your starting quarterback. We already know that the situation with with bell and with Antonio Tonio Brown the year before I think that this is more of an organization these are two organizations that win by the way are the ones that invest in the people that they bring in to lead the team and assist them and building that team personnel wise. I don't think he's GONNA lose his job over this. I don't think he ends up in Atlanta and they'll salvage the season but you'll look to see this team begin to build. They're putting pieces in place. The kid from Michigan that they brought in Devon Bush been very good or well but he's a rookie and he's young highly talented. They're building. They're building the team. They're going to have to rebuild. Detainment is usually what happens in growing pains agree with you right there. It's a rebuilding year now. Especially since Ben van is gone that young quarterback they brought in. I'm not sure a big been. We haven't seen last him. That might've been the last door with trevor. See from big bend would not be surprised if he doesn't come back. I hope he does because I like watching them play but that kid who came in they drafted him Rudolf. He played pretty. Well two touchdown passes. I think this is is going to be a season where you can watch and see with coach Tomlin if he can turn this around and get to five hundred with this group with that quarterback then I don't see why you fire especially with the history of the Pittsburgh steelers there was Chuck Knoll and Code Coats Kaur who else that it Mike Tomlin I the Rudy family stands behind the guy. I don't see him. Go anywhere. I started saying look went. This may be good for Mike Tomlin to get a fresh start and go someplace else. There's been a lot of things transpire and Pittsburgh from Labianca Abe to his relationship with big been that I if I have a chance asked to start over. Perhaps Mike Tom what I'd rather do with Julio Jones and Matt Ryan and the foul or would I rather the Go-to Carolina. Perhaps when reveres pushed out. There's going to be a lot of upheaval with some pretty solid organizations again. The Pittsburgh's organization is is rock solid but there's a lot of heat on Tomlin. He's I'm gonNA tell you the everybody loves to say his winning percents X Y and Z I do and people are going in. Pittsburgh are going to be like hey man when Bill Belichick Laws Brady they went eleven and five and we're in Pittsburgh is headed for four and twelve three and thirteen something something like that. I just think it would be good. Even for Tomlin. Go someplace else do that is an established organization and let me tell you something matic systemic wash. Don't be open no way don't don't yeah. Don't you dare. Don't you dare go watch the roof. They're always say this there. Are there are franchises and there are. NFL teams teams the difference between a franchise they win super bowls the difference between them and those those NFL teams those NFL teams played the teams that win the Super Bowl right. I'M NOT GONNA leave. A place. I was just saying is coming into work today. It's amazing that a black head coach was able to get the helm at Pittsburgh for the Pittsburgh steelers because it is such a historic in history. I don't think it's amazing. I think it was something called. The Rooney rules yes yes. The route started not going to give you Blanco's ruined but nonetheless that's their first black third coaching fifty years again in the reality. The reality of that is that when you have a guy that has had the success. It wasn't a given that Mike Tomlin would come in. The floor is going through right now. Doing Lenovo Not Leflore the past wasn't my God bless. My guys name in Florida got it okay. I got a few points. I gotTa push back on one you know De. Utah get rid of him is GONNA fail forward and land in Atlanta wherever it may be just want to remind how'd you this second marriages fail at a higher rate than I wanNA know. Why because you think it's going to be better somewhere else. Oh fixed it was problem. He is still which brother all the different. You know that part too we will we will fail everyone watching at home as former players if we didn't take them into the locker room right now and tell them how this is really playing now. I'm gonNA tell you I ain't gonNA. Let them off the hook. You know damn well. Everybody unlocked say ball. You know bottom line me. That's Charles Pittsburgh. y'All try to play this high road oh and in building on sand and take the Harrow. Ab and you go cast him down and we are happy group. We're all good and boy that bought on Leibowitz Booysen Poetic Justice in the air right now. I'm just going to let you know that when you start losing players to injury you start feeling like they are. Oh into in to Thomas been here before in his career but still in Pittsburgh there looking like damn. Where's I be doing just landed with the Patriots Better Organization Better Success Ball and day one. It's just interesting that when they were playing this high road I knew it was gimmicky felt disingenuous disingenuous and it's just interesting. I know when I play and there's something happened on your side and we were pitted against each other. I would just sit there and look I wonder how to fill right now so no one thinks that there's a direct correlation between injury and them not performing well and ABC situation but pitted against each other. I think it's very peculiar peculiar that things are crumbling where they said everything was peace. Call in happiness just a few weeks ago Karma. I mean your point boy. You made an argument for why Mike Tomlin should be like. I'm out. I'm out of here. My brand is still strong. I can go land someplace sales sales. Look how well it's working for. Andy Reid Bill Belichick. You know this is his second job to reach. It's his second marriage so I just don't think the timing is bad for Mike. Tomlin Colin take his ball to another organization. Tony Gonzalez back joined now by former pro bowl receiver. TJ who spends auto let's move to the saints not only lost their revenge game against the rams but might've lost drew brees as well with quarterback exiting the game with a thumb injury in the first quarter according to Espn Adam schefter breeze we'll have surgery and is expected to miss six weeks leaving the team and Teddy Bridgewater Hand for the time being but but bridgewater has been below average he came into the league trailing the NFL average passing yards and passer rating and throwing twenty nine touchdowns in twenty nine start having said that I'm GonNa take teddy off the hook for their performance yesterday. I I thought Jerry Cook with potentially point shaving. Some of the stuff was doing it up and things like that. I thought that hurt them a lot. More than Teddy Bridgewater team was undisciplined sloppy. The some off false star penalties things like that can they survive without drew brees perhaps. I think Sean Payton can figure out a way to manage this team for six seven weeks without drew brees and visits not that great yeah. I think they can manage and I think they're going to be okay. one respect teddy bridgewater. Those numbers weren't so flattering but he did lead the Vikings to eleven five record. Remember that year would have one game Blair. Walsh went out there Blair Wasp project what the hell he was doing missing the Phil so they would've advanced in the playoffs so you gotta give Teddy Bridgewater some respect also we've all been in this position before where I came into League as a backup and one game. I remember Bruce Smith was. I ain't feeling that today and it was like eleven thirty and I was like well. We play one. You you can think about that during the week Wednesday and to go from humidity not prepared to play whatever that is to try accelerate that process that fast second series of a game you're in there. I don't care what level preparation you have. That's a tough ask for team in this complex system so you look at their next five games seahawks cowboys. ooh That's tough but then you got bucks in Jags. Okay start to fill yourself into bears. That could be a tossup game right there. I think that they will come back when jewell breezes available. They'll be a five hundred team with a lot of football left to play still in the playoffs. I see him surviving teddy bridgewater highest pay back up in the League for a reason he had an opportunity starting Miami. He turned down for the situation. You don't WanNa see drew brees go down but when he does it's like okay. This is why why came back to be the highest payback number one. The saints have a really good defense..

"I think that was his way of acknowledging that maybe the leadership wasn't quite what it needed to be so i think any any mention to how maybe they were talking a little bit too much and they should <hes> temper that down a bit so so i think he has shown some signs that he's willing to change and <hes> <hes> but like they've said we can't really see that but <hes> <hes> starting with <hes> the regular season we'll we'll finally get to find out <hes> some of these answers so <hes> i'm looking forward to seeing <hes> <hes> how he is and what your number twelve you know 'cause he's still a relatively young man so so people forget the coaches can improve and they can get better later and they can learn so you know <hes>. Let's see what happens. Dave scofield is coach. Mike tomlin a coach of the year candidate. Ah coach of the year candidate has everything to do with how the team finishes you could be the best coach without talent coming in at the beginning and you can't get there or if you make a really big jump coach. Tomlin is not going to be a coach of the year candidate because he's coaching the pittsburgh steelers to you've got a flash to the national media to win that award and guess what the steelers <unk> as an organization or too good to flash the way that you really have to do so. That's why i don't. I'm not saying that he shouldn't be considered but that's why. I think that he wouldn't win it. So if i'm not mistaken i don't think they've ever had any coach of the years <hes> <hes> that might be something for the statman there or might be one eighty nine. That's a that's a good throw that out there tony cause. I think you're right that no one at one point but i'm not sure when it was four yeah i think it would have been in the eighties is an eighty nine. Team was a nine hundred seventeen. That did some beautiful things and she was mark. Stock the drop the four and then treadwell for the broncos joint one in off the uprights <hes> gosh i still i. I need to go back doc in watch that game again to that was that was one heck of the game. There were so many chances for that team there too <hes> i i think they would have beaten cleveland and i think they would went on to the super bowl to play the san francisco forty niners who beat the broncos fifty five to ten. Maybe it's a good thing that they they didn't get there. I like bobby's odds against joe montana roger taylor on jerry rice the but anyways so that's that's a great question. We've asked questions coming in on the on the super chat here and a lot of them are excuse me not the super chip on on the live chat and get your questions in. We'll have some time for a few of them. <hes> one of them that we've got a couple of times. This is on who's going to get more carries. Is it going to be jas jason samuels or benny snail the but he's still junior. Excuse me tony. What do you think i think everybody wants to be benny snell because you know he's at prototypical steeler running back a wrench downhill whereas in in samuels is more of a <hes> swiss army knife kind of a weapon on offense where he could be utilized out of the backfield and <hes> it can even pull it a little bit of tight end but <hes> you mentioned <hes> mike tomlin and changing but <hes> with <hes> if if they started to go more <hes> give carries.

"Because he has that right type of player next to him again and yes because he was playing to that right with that type of player before for it showed you what he could do. Well you know we talked about players with new attitudes the whole team the coon by that. I've just been i might is. We'll get that copyrighted because i've been using that just ad nauseam <hes> so and oh by the way tony i saw your <hes>. I saw your your quote. I believe it on facebook about spelling ad nauseam if i'm correct on so i had to bring that up but i've been using i've been using team kun-bae like crazy. I'm glad to see that <hes> there were some flared up pensions the other day with a hayward with villanueva and they were joking about it afterwards. That's what happens in the heat. That's what happens when you have passionate. I have no problem with that so it's great to be amped up. It's great to have that new attitude and tweaking something's just upping the decibels upping the intensity. Can that be said for coach mike tomlin what have we seen so far from mike tomlin tomlin and has he up the intensity. Is he going to change. Is he going to tweak a little bit this year. Are we going to see less with the running backs running being the wheels off running backs. Are we going to see just call him upping the ante. This tier is missile midnight for mike tomlin as well dave. Let's start with you. You've got first of all. You've got to remember that you are talking to a former football coach so i've kind of been there with some of the stuff nowhere close to the level of these guys but at least i have an understanding adding of what it's like to to coach football being locker room and everything else there is nothing that we have seen from for mike tomlin this year to make us think that it's going to be any different but the key part of that phrase is that we have seen because the the biggest role of mike tomlin of coming out and answering questions at the end of every every practice and training camp which has been fantastic for helping me write some articles and from 'em taking over after the game added to his press conference everything we think i think that what mike tomlin is doing. They're on the sidelines. The biggest thing what my commas doing is in the locker room every day and we can't see it and we don't yeah no it but i'm hoping it's different because by seeing the players be different. You think that that's also got to be a reflection of what's going on with your coach coach. You know what tony i have. I seen i kind of feel a comb intensity from mike tomlin here. I feel like he has upped the ante. Where are you on this whole thing and we're not talking about and i mentioned threat level midnight. I'm not talking about his job at all. I'm just talking about him upping the ante knowing that this is a year where everybody was under fire in the off season because of some players leaving. There's been in all kinds of talk. You know that this guy is a competitor. He's itching to win. He's so do you think that he's going to turn that dial l. a. up so much more and maybe do some things he has not done. In the past. Yeah we talked about the running backs. I mean kevin covert mentioned that in the off-season about maybe they have to revisit their approach to that and and so that might be one aspect of the changes <hes> he <hes> he agree he to to have a coach that was in charge of challenges which had to be <hes> difficult for him to to admit that he wasn't really really good at that. You know it's not you know coach big egos and and you know we see legendary coaches like chuck knoll refused to change go-carts will come come a long time to open up the playoffs and trust is a franchise quarterback when he finally got one and you saw that paid dividends they want a super bowl with that so you know he mentioned <hes> how the departures of brown and bell a cleansing for the organization for the locker room..

"He's got his locker room back. So maybe you go to Ben Rothlisberger. Say Ben Look. I'm not gonNa tell you to do the show or not to your radio show but if you do that show you better keep your mouth shut when it comes to calling calling out players and you know what he has every right to say that even to a veteran like Ben Rothlisberger because you know why he's the head coach of the Pittsburgh steelers that's why he has every right to say that's a ban. He has every right to say to anyone on the team. ZIP IT UP ZIP it up. You know what everyone always criticizes Bill Belichick in that team up north as we call them for being so locked in and they're never saying anything guess what that it comes directly from the top. It is followed to a T. in that's that's how they do business in in my opinion I run a website that is you know we're looking for traffic. We're trying to write attractive articles that are going to get you to come to our site and read them. I would be fine fine not writing about this drama. That happens like Bud DuPrey in the comments. He made about lady on bell last year then. They raided his locker don't need to do it. Don't need to say it. Keep Your Mouth Shut Viz. These are some of the things that Tomlin needs is to start to curtail its. I think it stems back to Antonio. Brown's facebook live video during his post-game speech after the team beat the Kansas City chiefs in Kansas City in individual round of the playoffs that year. They're getting ready you to play the Patriots in Foxborough the A._F._C. Championship game. You're star wide receiver is more worried about his his image and how many people were on his facebook. Live feed fits word started but now as we're can end dole up to Mike Tomlin. Will he do it. I don't know I don't have a lot of faith in that. I like my talent. I don't want anyone to listen to this guy. He's just a tomboy Nader. I actually support Mike Tomlin. You can ask lands. You didn't ask anyone that I've gun shows with anyone that I've talked to. I actually like Mike Tomlin head coach but that doesn't mean he's perfect. It did Bill Kaur was a perfect Bucknell was imperfect. He's not perfect either but it's time for some change time to get at their time start. Start a new trend a new way of thinking in a way of acting for the Pittsburgh steelers because that stuff off the field that stuff in the locker room which was so calm quote unquote last year. I believe it bled onto the field. I believe it. Did you might disagree and you're entitled to your opinion. I think it did so Mike Tomlin. I know you're listening time for a change.

"They just yell and scream, okay? To give him what he wants said that he shuts up that's kind of what I felt like. And so now, Mike Tomlin's gotta have this perception hovering over his head like a cloud saying can I control my players? He's got to prove it that's going to be some pressure. You those situations are going to happen. Someone's going to say something someone's gonna do some it happens all the time. I hope it doesn't happen that often this year for the Steelers. But if it does what you're gonna do that's pressure. I have to say that speaking of perception, Mike Thomas perception in terms of the national media, probably even the local media, probably even the fan base in even maybe I don't know this for a fact, I'm just guessing, but maybe even with other players that could be potentially free agents. I think Mike Tomlin's perception is at an all time low people used to tout him as the next great coach they wanted to they free agents wanted to play for him players want to be drafted by him players wanted nothing. But the play for Mike Tomlin coach t they heard all the stories. He's a winner. He's going to give you a good chance to succeed to get to the Super Bowl. I'm not sure if people think that anymore, and so Mike Tomlin might say. I don't care what other people think that are outside these walls. I don't care. Care, what the media says I'm gonna pay attention to that. That's all white noise. But you have to understand that he he feels it. He has to feel it if there was a free agent. And there was I think it was Roby the cornerback. They offered him a three year contract. He said, no, I'll take a one year deal for Houston to play quarterback for them instead of a three year deal in Pittsburgh. You have to wonder if someone said, I don't want anything. I don't want any part of that circus in Pittsburgh. And if they did. That's that's fresher perception can be reality, folks. And in this case, maybe it is. And if it is that's a problem. Okay. So now, let's go to the next one for my Thomas is number four. I think the ownership might be reaching the end of their rope with certain things it's tough to go into an office of a coach she's never had a losing season. And I know. I know I just said a few minutes ago, how the fan base of Mike Tomlin loves to tout that but bear with me. So you know, it suffered owner to go into my Thomas office in and complain about the product. But when this organization has been drug through the mud the way that it has and that they're not making the playoffs and they're losing first-round playoff games. Like, they didn't it gets the Jaguars after a buy in the divisional round, the two thousand seventeen with now all that stuff is having. It's just building. It's building the drama team turmoil. As everyone calls all this stuff building building building. You have to wonder when ownership art Rooney the seconds going to say I've had enough I've had enough. It's not going as planned. See? I'm not saying that's happened. I'm not saying they're thinking about it. But you have to think that if you're using the the terminology of the hot seat that might Tomlin's hot seat might be warming up a little bit this year in particular. You get rid of the clowns of the circus. Okay. They're gone. What he what does this team do? Now. A lot of people were down on the Steelers the over under a Vegas is nine wins. They used to be a joke in the they used to be a punchline nine Wednesay serious KOMO but not anymore..

"Thursday night around nine o'clock makes you check us out live here here live on YouTube. He's going to say, well, yeah. But Jeff there was the lowest total interception. Mark in the NFL. Like the last two decades. I don't care. He still led the league in interceptions. So I think there's gonna be some pressure for him to not turn the ball over as much. I remember as two years ago. He went into training camp saying he didn't want to throw any interceptions at all the entire camp. And I wanna say he came really close to doing that. And he s- protecting the football was paramount. But then last year and training camp, he came in with a little different mindset. And that was more of a I needed as let it loose. Sometimes we saw were that got him. So the pressure might be this year. He's got to play a little bit cleaner. He's gotta keep that football out of the defense his hands in that's going to be some pressure. So those five things I'll run down in case. You're just joining us live on YouTube number one where the comments made by his teammates. Okay. That the players that used to play with him and. And you're leaving town how they basically just ripped him. That's going to be pressure. No more Todd Haley to to you know, Bank on Randy feet ner experiences going into year two. So that's his offense. That's pressure hasn't been to the Super Bowl and over of ten years. That's pressure. He's got prove that it's Ben that made into Neo Brown. Not the other way around that's pressure. And lastly cancer so many interceptions. That's going to be pressured. Okay. Now, let's go to the other side of the docket. The other side of the coin, however, you wanna put it that would be Mike Tomlin head coach different kind of pressure much different type of pressure. I don't think that you know. We'll we'll answer the question, which is who's going to have who's gonna have more pressure into dozen nineteen. Let's go over. What might Thomas is the first and foremost top of the list for me you missed the playoffs last year. You were seven to an one at one point in did not make the. Playoffs finishing a distant disappointing nine six and one that leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth. I'm sorry. I people that are Mike Tomlin fans, and I'm one of them love to tout about all those things, you know. Hey, he's never had a losing season. And that's true. And that's awesome. But at the same time if you're eight or nine and seven in you don't make the playoffs. Who cares if you who cares? If you don't have a losing season. Yeah. That's just a nice little feather in your cap. You wanna make the postseason? You wanna get to the dance? You wanna punch your ticket at least giving you a shot, and they didn't do that last year. So that's going to be some pressure next is the this could be number one, it really could the perceived the perception I should say that he has an inability to control his players, I as someone that used to be coach. Now, if you listened to a standard as I've coached in high school, that's the extent of my coach house ahead varsity. Coach not football doesn't matter. If you're coaching group vigils, and it's a team sport. You have some of these issues when someone whether it's the media whether it's the team whether it's your ship perceived that you can't control your team. That's a problem. That's a big problem. So now, you have a situation where Mike Tomlin every single issue that might happen. Let's say a player misses a walk-through. Let's say a player as perpetually late. Let's say someone does something on the field that warrants a flag. Let's say an excessive celebration, let's say that somebody says something in the media that is not very attuned to the what the Steelers want to hear from their players, whatever the case is you have that happen. People are going to want to know, what's he gonna do? Because everyone thinks this is the perception that I'm talking about everyone thinks that Mike Tomlin just let lady on. L and especially in TIMMY, Brown just run rampant. They just run rampant kinda like that toddler that just gets whatever they want..
Super Bowl 2019: History says Rams vs. Patriots in Atlanta could be another all-time classic
"It is the once and for all finally, we have reached. Super Bowl fifty three a game that will be played down in Atlanta, Georgia. Right around six six twenty between the New England Patriots in Los Angeles. And I think it's now time for me to admit the bitterness the anger the bad feelings I had towards this year's game have to come to an end. Because now it's game time. Now, we will think about degrade. Bella check in the great Brady. Yes. Paul for. The course something we've seen quite a bit over these last seventeen eighteen years Brady and Belichick getting ready and preparing for the night's Super Bowl going up against the boy wonder the next great young coaching store in the NFL, Sean McVeigh, and he's very very talented, Los Angeles. I'm steam and remember, despite the fact that the Rams got the benefit of the whistle. And did not get that penalty. Flag down in New Orleans. Does. The fact that this Rams team all year one of Vegas favorites to win this year Super Bowl. The Rams come into this game. We're Boorda talent. That's why you think about where this line opened up opened up with the LA Rams, basically is a one point favorite. Now that has changed you're going to see New England anywhere from two and a half to three maybe it falls to two we will have to wait and see. The reason New England is going to get that. Nod as far as being a favor, according to Vegas, according to a good amount of you. It's because of what those two gentlemen, had done throughout their entire NFL careers. It's very tough to go into these Super Bowls and pick against Tom Brady and Bill bell check. And I've done it on a couple of occasions that didn't last year had success with Philadelphia Eagles for some of you. You may be did it against the Atlanta the Seattle Seahawks and you can have success when it's twenty eight three falcons. We know what happened. Now, you're probably thinking you're going to have success bet against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick went Seattle and curse makes the spectacular catch. And they're inside the five yard line and marshawn Lynch does not get the ball. And Russell Wilson is intercepted. One of the greater Super Bowl mysteries in the history of my lifetime. This patriot team all year. According to most of us. Fans media, whoever you may be maybe thought they were losing a little bit. Maybe thought that this team didn't have the same offensive firepower. How long can Tom Brady continue to dominate on the north side of forty how much gronk have left. What about the loss of Josh Gordon who they brought in to be a big play weapon? Just goes to show you when you count out the New England Patriots. You're making a monumental mistake. And our molested picked against the patriots in the division around. Bingo well against the patriots two weeks ago championships Sunday instinct classic game. No went to overtime Tom Brady and the pats Bill Belichick and the pats still at team that's left standing. The Rams dole have avenues and ways to win this game. You don't work it. The Rams, nor should you look at the Rams. The way he did on now. The two thousand seven New York Giants who were an overwhelming underdog coming into the game. And we know what happened. The giants won a game prevented the nineteen year. You don't have that here with New England in Los Angeles these evenly matched games. In fact, you could argue one through fifty three you liked the talent of the Los Angeles Rams. A little more. Not crazy. Take reds gonna win this game. If we're sitting here Monday morning, and I'm breaking down Tom Brady going five and four now in Super Bowl games. You will need to see I think to specific keys paramount. The first band, and this is a given any time you're going up against Tom Brady, you better hit him. You better get them into the ground. You'd better sack him. Your pasteurized. Gotta do some work. I won't get Aaron Donald. I look at consumer the interior pass. Rush four. The LA Rams is going to have to play a major role. You did about age rushers. You ain't going to find a better pair of edge rushers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. I thought off the age those guys we're gonna get the Tom Brady. But remember the game plan for New England was so good net game. He's getting rid of ball, one one and a half seconds. Two seconds bowl. It's out. So you can generate much pass rush. You get them up the middle of changes things a little bit. Aaron Donald wanna show me wise best fence player in the league. Superbowl Madama can sue who has made plenty of all pro teams over the years. Now has his chance in his first Super Bowl to go wreck. Tom Brady, he's had some big games and postseason remember one when he was with Detroit against Dallas Cowboys was in Tony romo's face. Play off the play off the play. I remember game last year. I went to data south Florida when Dominic can sue was over Tom Brady, make your life miserable. For Tom Brady to me. That's data happen. Then you have on the offensive side for LA. Todd Gurley who is one of the most electrifying playmakers in the sport. Who I would argue is the best running back in the sport. Has in. Exactly been that player. Let's be fair. Even if you look at it as a hundred yards that he had against Dallas in the divisional round. Is that what you're going to remember about that game? Of course, dont. No, you have one or two big Ron's that came was all about C, J Anderson and his ability to run the football. You at the championship game Elliott had far more success. Throwing the football running the football. We now has basically two weeks to rest up. We'll see if he's much closer to one hundred percent. I can't envision the LA Rams winning this game and Todd Gurley. He's not gonna play a major role. You know, Bella check will look to take away what you do best. Now. That's the great chess match between these still McVay and Goth trying to get to the line of scrimmage quickly. Surveying the landscape of the field and in China to figure out what they're going to do. And Bella check and his mastery China counteract at the more and more thought about that the more and more fun this Super Bowl matchup become for me. I have to admit because that idea of Sean McVeigh China show a guy. Analyzed a guy that a lot of coaches around the league now who are having great success did going to idolize Bill check because they're going to look at him as the modern day will forty gigging to look at him as a modern day Paul Brown where nobody's doing what he's doing. All these coaches seem to have a shell five all these coaches, even if they're in a job for a long period of time, they have that downturn. John Harbaugh had that downturn Tom Coughlin eventually had that downturn. Mike Tomlin now was having that downtown with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Dan, never happens for Bill Belichick and the patriots. They don't miss the postseason. They've only done so twice in seventeen years. Never missed the playoffs since two thousand eight and that was when Tom Brady tours ACL they are used to being in the big game. Wait a variety of different players, and how can McVay now with a roster has maybe a little more talent. Make the necessary adjustment. If need be at halftime figure out. All right. They're taking this guy away. We're gonna make this guy star or that guy star. It's fun

"We're going to stick with a bow scheme. We're going to stick with a bow. And they stayed with then obviously Butler takes over. And then all of a sudden Tomlin started getting his hands into the mix little more. They started running more zone covered scheme. They started to really work on the Tampa twos tile defense. But again, I asked the question is this all Tomlin URS this mainly Butler? They've won in the same. So let's get back to the question at hand who's to blame who maybe that's not the best way to put it who shoulders more blame in the fact that this defense who has been in rebuilding mode since probably two thousand eleven it's two we're going into the two thousand nineteen season. Eight years of rebuilding. You should have rebuilt the defense ready. That's that's the way it is. Okay. You look at the offense, and and they'd kind of rebuilt themselves in a lot of different ways. But the defense is seems to knob yet again it there, and there's a lot of blame to go into that. So who is more to blame? Well, I think Keith Butler has plenty of blame to go on his shoulders when it comes to the way that the team prepares the defensive game plan going into games to me that's on Keith Butler. It falls on his shoulder. That's a Mike Tomlin's. Gotta sign off on this stuff. He's the head coach. I get that. But Tomlin is not in the defensive Filmer in the entire time. He's gotta be over in the offense aside special teams. He's thr- spread pretty thin Butler's, the one's gotta come up with some of these games. And you think about the way some of these games have played out. And you're thinking my goodness. Who saw what what in the world is this game plan? You know? L at the same time you have to save. Do we give Keith Butler a lot of credit because this defense has put up one hundred and eight sacks in the last two seasons? Fifty six setting a new franchise record two thousand seventeen in fifty two tied for the NFL lead in two thousand eighteen so for as bad as some things are with his defense. They do know how to get after the quarterback that's been proven. It's then I look at it into. Okay. What about this head coach who's a defensive guy? That's people often forget, he's a divas of guy. They say this is a hey all defense. This was his forte. How's the defense that bad? And that's a question every wants to know until me the answer. This question who is more blame? It has to be Mike Tomlin because for all those categories that I broke down personnel players. Whether it's free agent acquisitions and fell draft handling the players currently on the team on the defensive side of the football. All of that it boils down to the head coach. And I guarantee their circumstances and situations or Mike Tomlin will Trump Butler, and they were going to do it this way. Sometimes maybe it's maybe Tomlin does that. And we don't know this because we're not there again. But maybe Tomlin did have prior to the New England Patriots game said, look, we're not doing the same old same old. We're going to mix it up. Here's what we're doing. And it works. You don't hear about that? That would help. Mike Tomlin's rep reputation immensely with the fan base. He doesn't care that the same time. We'll never know that either at the same time, you know, it could be Tom on that marches into the room. It says against the Oakland Raiders, we're going to do this this and bother might be sitting on his hands and coach his bad idea. But he's not the head coach Mike Tomlin has to carry the majority of the blame. That's not to say that Keith butlers innocent. It's not to say the Keith Butler doesn't have a mess on his hands as it is. But here's the thing. I bad as the defense is not an article about this today. It was the second part of the three. Part series about how to fix the two thousand nineteen Steelers in I focused on the fence today. It's fitting that I'm doing this topic on the burning question podcast..
"mike tomlin" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Curtain dot com here with you for another weekly installment of this solo episode where I answer a question that might just be on a lot of folks minds that follow the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, if you haven't heard the news yet, and maybe you haven't because there have been a lot of sources that have come out with us, but the Pittsburgh post gazette writer, Jerry dulack put out that recently the Steelers organization and Mike Tomlin ultimately decided that instead of replacing outside linebacker Joey outside linebacker coach. Reporter they decided to just have Keith Butler defensive coordinator take over those duties now a lot of people myself included, I might what? Well, then I thought about it a little bit more. And I understood that Butler has plenty of experience in this arena. And. Fact, he was the linebackers. Coach was prior to them having an inside linebacker special coach specialty coach an outside linebacker specialty coach I used to be just Butler himself. This is under the dick lebeau regime. Duke LeBow was forced out of town. Keith. A is when you organization decided to bring in Jerry will sassy coach the inside linebackers and Joey porter to coach the outside. Clearly, they fire Jerry porter or his contract was not renewed. Same thing in my opinion. None the less. It's all semantics and so instead of bringing in an outside source for talk. We heard any named like Kevin Greene was thrown around the lot. They decided to say hey on top of being the defensive coordinator urine. Now be responsible for the development and production of players. I T J watt, and bud depre- and whomever else they might bring it now at this time. I also think myself in this was noted in do lex article that this is the only coordinator that has a secondary duty, for instance, rain defeat and is also still the quarterbacks coach, I get that. But he's going to be dealing and talking with Ben Rothlisberger a ton anyways. In terms of how they draw up plays. And how they. They focus on specifics in how they're going to attack defense as pretty much the same thing. I ask though, how is this going to change the way Keith Butler does his job because think about it this offseason? Terms of the coaching staff has been some changes, you know, out side of Joey porter. They bring in tarot Austin who used to be the defensive coordinator the Bengals who was fired midseason. He's a defensive assistant. That's going to be also helping out the secondary, very odd. Emma seemed as if they're going to have to coordinators, you know, Austin in Butler Butler will take care of the front seven. And then clearly awesome. Take care of the back end. I'm not saying that's how it's going to happen. It just seems like maybe that's the direction they're headed. With that said, I think that we all myself included can look at this situation and say if there's a weakness on this Pittsburgh Steelers team, whether it was two thousand eighteen or whether it was moving looking ahead to two thousand nineteen it's on the defensive side of the football. It's not that the offense hasn't had issues. We know that they do. But at the same time this defense has some glaring glaring weaknesses. And so you can talk about coaching. You can talk about a lot of different things. The question the burning question on tonight's episode is who is more to blame. Head coach Mike Tomlin defensive coordinator. Keith butler. The reason I asked is because it's a season ended. Everyone always wants to fire Tomlin. And there's a lot of people that have some serious underlying issues with Mike Tomlin that don't have anything to do with football. That's fact, not saying that's a vast majority of fans, but there are plenty that won him gone..
Is it possible for the Rockets to beat the Warriors?
"Want to buy. Aids. Is it possible? The rockets could get it together by the Western Conference fund where they're better than they were last year. Is that possible? I don't think so it's not possible. I don't think so I think that's poss- adult at the sixty five wins as good as they looked last year. I don't think it's possible for most teams to be better than they look lashes out. But what I mean is actually better like the the warriors one seventy three games. Yeah. And then they got better because they added the rent their regular season record wasn't as good. But in the moment of truth, they were clearly the best team. And of course, they should be big favorites. Again, the way they've been looking recently. And the talent we know they have my point is if you believe it's possible for the rockets to actually in the moment of truth now that they have the experience of last year be better than they were last year. They only need to be that much better by the snow. You don't think the lawyers? Got you go, Molly, I'm trying to make. It's just interesting doing down that ladder. They had no man that tell C P three got hurt. I just. Very very very clear. My reservations for Oakland have already been made. There is no there's no issue. Here is your I will be in Oakland at oracle ju- where where are you going to be on the east coast with us? I'm hoping I'm hoping today Milwaukee. But only for you know, I may wanna socialite that's all your team because a lot of drama goes another day in more support coming out for Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown. This time for fellow wideout juju Smith Schuster crazy stuff about AB. You gotta fill in a law firm. If you come back, you guys welcome. And they man he may he's guy. Yeah. Well, I wonder what his teammates feel about this tweet from AB who usually says businesses Bowman and right now, Stephen he's open for business. It'd be over for whatever you want still is Abbas right to say other so exc- he could be open to whatever he wants. I don't give a damn about Antonio Brown's feelings right now I wanted to stay with this. These that great. And really, by the way, I'm not telling you anything. I haven't told him. Yeah. If a damn by his feelings, I want him on a steel course. I don't want to Steelers to trade this, man. He's great. He's too. Great figuring it out. I'll give it there. You gotta give them a massage pedicure. You gotta take them. You gotta have sports therapy sessions with you gotta go play with his cage got treated to dinner for the next day. What you gotta do. Now. I will say this. I want him to apologize to Mike Tomlin to for pudding that coach in that position. But particularly considering the paucity of African American coaches, so only two and NFL it'd be three by the time. New England wins the Super Bowl, I guess unless they lose the bottom line is is that I don't like the position. He put my Tomlin. And that's about it outside of that. He doesn't want get Tomlin put him. That's fair. That's fair. Let's get over it and figure that I or Rooney is saying I don't see how you can be on the team next year. Yeah. And all the press all the chirping out of the Steelers negative towards the future with Antonio round. Like, we don't we don't see it, basically. Now, all of the sudden juju Smith Schuster, though, watching his body language and his and hey, Derek Carr. Yeah. I'm I'm inferring. What I see? That's true. I didn't seem to me like it was in juju Smith, Schuster heart. But you can't know another Mantar all you can do is inferred from what you see. Didn't I don't know? If he if those words that are coming out of his mouth reflect the way, he's feeling, but I'll let me read between the lines a little bit. It seems to me Stephen A that at the point that they were saying all that stuff. They were probably thinking we are going to try to trade him. And probably I imagine started to kick the tires on some trade ideas like one could they get back for him. And I think what I read this. As is. Maybe what's happening here is they're not liking what they're hearing in terms of the return on moving Antonio Brown. And that they're better off with him. That's my sense. If they don't if that is true, then the Steelers would have everything to do with that. Because how do you want to trade such as surreal asset and command top dollar a top cash eighth for him? When in fact, you've served a role in excoriating, correct? So what you do don't they say this is what happened with Kyrie? Right. When the whole world. Knows he's outta there. Or you're gonna get the best offer. The worst offer at the worst offer you have to make people believe that he's going to stay whether that's because you don't get the offer you want. It's going to snake or to make people believe it. So they come with a better offer before we move onto LeBron. I just have to say this quick. I don't think I ever gave you props on this. When lady on bell was sitting going to sit out. And I was like there's no way he sits out. You're like, no he's probably going to sit out and he sat out the entire season. I think you're the only person that actually believed that he would do that. When we think he could do if you wanted the gold at the end of the grandma never would his type talent on that team. But happened LeBron James on this is fifteen straight game with the Lakers take on the Timberwolves tonight. But he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the sons, according to coach Luke Walton when he was injured on Christmas day the Lakers weren't fourth place in the west since they injury, Los Angeles five and nine they've dropped to ninth plates in the west, Stephen A. How bad is what bronze injury for the Lakers of worry. I was told not to be worry if LeBron James Levy reading. Needed to he could go out the plate, and he would be ready, but I find this to be the most significant injury of his career I'm incredibly concerned because I want the Lakers to get a big time free agent. I want them to make some noise in the summertime, and I think that obviously when you took thirty four years of age, they are going to be people who are going to question your ability, even the great LeBron James almost never hurt. So the fact that he's outright. Now, you have to wonder whether or not a potential free agent is going to look at that. And question how much time does he have left at this level? That's when I'm not saying there's any legitimacy to that. I'm simply saying that that's a reasonable cause for concern. And so the bright lights LA Tinseltown palm tree. So the California weather notwithstanding. You'd never know what some marquee free agent is going to look at when it comes to Magic Johnson. Lincoln picking up the phone to call them and say come on L A what I man the Bron. When in fact, they're wondering about LeBron. More. I look at this more. I think Jerry's going to be a Laker. Yeah. Because I started to run down the scenarios if it's not a Y, and it doesn't look like it'll be why I wouldn't put anything past magic he landed. Lebron after all if it's not going to be K D or someone like that if Kemba Walker in fact wants to stay where he is. And they work that out if Mike Conley is not the answer in a trade. And if the Celtics don't wanna give Kyrie a supermax like why would we want to stay in Boston, not only that they're extremely talented coach the whole thing, but he'd get a supermax deal. Then I think kyri and LeBron could come around in their own minds to seeing a reconciliation as hey, what if Kobe and shack worked it out what if they parted ways? But then they said, you know, what we messed this up. Let's work this out and that eventually the Lakers would be Kyrie's team that's got to be very appealing. We know kyri has relationship with Kobe. And could you imagine if the Lakers didn't have to give up any assets at this trade deadline, if they kept Ingram and Kuzina and. An and heart and all these guys and simply added KYW read or run Bill that happens where are they in the west for ten Kyrie's there right now with LeBron and LeBron's healthy. And assuming Ingraham continues to improve and mom gets a little better share, maybe one more acquisition the right acquisition. Lakers can win the chip next year. If kyri is there, you do not need Lonzo ball. They're correct. And that means you might get something for Lonzo. Then you might not need Brandon Ingram either. Say that happening playing with LeBron listen, I'm told that is far fetched kyri is happy and Boston. He has no intentions of leaving. But Kenny had ever go around not shutting. I don't have to pretend I'm not sharing anything anything's together. Anything is they get back together for now. Sure about that. Thanks. Mitch listening to the podcast gets. I take weekdays ten AM eastern ESPN.

"And I've gone back. He drives me nuts. But I will say this. I have heard people I had an I had a scout say Dakhil only work in this league. If he has a great running back in fairness at this point Tom Brady needs a running game. At this point. Drew Brees needs a running game. Jared Goff needs a running game. Let's slow down a little on. Dax the only quarterback who needs a great running game out. I mean Carson Wentz who is a wizard. Doesn't have the running game this year in the same guy. Dak ceiling is low. We would both agree with that. I agree. But most every quarterback even Aaron Rodgers right now what's his record? Don't have much of a consistent running game index stealing is low, but he would Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys organization sees as they see the future with that growing in him on the incline versus on the decline at the beginning of a quarterback's career. A running back is most important, and I believe at the end of a quarterback's career a running back as more most important, very good point, Greg Jennings. All right. So. You know, it's funny. The raiders beat the Steelers, and I got glossed over because the bears Rams and the Cowboys won the Steelers lost to Oakland for everybody watching and nobody talked about it because there were so many big games over the weekend. The Steelers lost to the raiders. Okay. The dysfunctional raiders. And in the game big bend was healthy. And they kept Josh Dobbs in it. Once again, the Steelers are sort of unraveling is it fair to compare Tomlin and ban. They got a little McCarthy. Aaron rodgers. Yes. Yes. I know I haven't been in that locker room. So I don't know the ins and outs of that dynamic. But yes, but when you look at who will be on the out you look at the Green Bay Packers. And look who they chose the quarterback the quarterback chose the quarterback. I'm sticking with the hall of Famer the guy who's going to sell these tickets when you look at the the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike Tomlin as much winning as he's done. So did Mike McCarthy as much success? They've had together Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers. But if I have to decide on who I'm going to continue to move for. With I am not parting ways with a hall of fame quarterback because that looks bad on us as an organization I've said this for years people compare Rogers to Brady he compares favourably. With Ben transformational talent lot of drama can be a little passive aggressive through the media. I mean, Aaron Ben literally they are the two guys true. They without saying it, they're constantly saying, I think there's a lot in common. That's why I think the suggestion that Tomlin he's run. His course is fair not saying you have to fire him. But if you're gonna fire McCarthy midseason afra- bat eight nine game stretch, you can at least consider Tomlin. You can bring it up. It's a fair com. It's definitely a fair column in and you've always said this Tomlin gets a pass. He's funny. He's incredibly Anna. It's Mike Ditka. And I think he gets the past because of the culture of that. That organization but because they don't turn over coach either to the Packers. Really hackers don't either. But, but when you really look at the Pittsburgh Steelers, they don't revolve that door and also the head coach, they just don't do it. And so they'll put up with more more in Bill, take the winds. We haven't won the big game in a long time..

"Without outrage mike tomlin needs to be better and big spots he needs to tighten up the locker room isn't that fair now can we at least acknowledge it's an issue occasionally it doesn't matter they didn't beat jacksonville that defense was unbeaten new england foxborough either but let's just be intellectually honest mike tomlin needs to button things up to be considered a quote great coach and i don't wanna hear about super bowls he inherited the rooney's big ben and an amazing defensive culture and they no longer play elite defense let's shift to other coaching and how important it is in the playoffs as great as bella check in brady are and many of you myself included think brady's the best quarterback ever and bella checks the best coach ever like most of us we would you could argue but i think most people watching the show right now are listening we would say yeah bella checks the best coach in the league and brady he's not a talented maybe as aaron rodgers or breeze or big ben or whatever but he's the best quarterback that said of their seven super bowls six have been decided by four points or less the only exception over time they beat atlanta so even with the best coach even with the best quarterback alltime inches not feet not yards inches win super bowls both new england's super bowl losses david tyree and mario manning hams catches the defensive backs were in the right spot leighton games one was a fluke another was just a great thrown catch by alayan mario manning ham that last play by the new orleans saints defense that day rookie defensive marcus williams he feels terrible today it was hard to explain what he was thinking a complete and utter whiff.
