"Regard this season they had to espn stats and information. This is interesting. The most second-half drops by any team since they've been charting the statistic of since two thousand six Najji harris alone dropped four passes in the second half but that was on that on that fourth down everybody was up on the line and he correctly guessed that they would drop back right and when you drop back into a picket fence zone. Which is the bengals did they. You know they dropped the four guys back with jim. Swartz used to do a lot on third downs and they guard the first down marker the play call a lot of times the right play called there is some sort of like screen or something to busted up and the the i think the decision was actually sound. Because what you wanted to do was get nashi harris with a head of steam running at that picket fence coverage and you wanted your offensive linemen to get off their blocks to get ahead of him. That was the plan it was. It was executed horribly like it went very wrong but i agree with his point which was what like what else he said afterwards. He wished that in hindsight he would have taken a shot but he said it in a way that like. I don't think i would have been able to do anything right. So what is the higher percentage. Play there to try to smash nausea hairs into A a pick zone. Or if you're ben rothlisberger to like cut waffle in the backfield slowly for a little while and then just missile one ten yards downfield. I don't know the answer to that. But typically against picket zone coverage a screen is like the call. That's what you would want to do. And so that was like a very poorly thought out very poorly executed like pseudo screen in that in that regard. I'm side with gary On this one. But i will remain calm and give it a chance. Qatar summation of the column. And so don't agree with that. You know you disagree with holy smokes. I'm over two. So 'cause i basically summarized my chiefs column earlier. Jenny called an interesting. Which is you know. One of the most dangerous insulted her vocabulary. Very kind wonderful person and then straight out disagree with this one. Like i don't know i better check my employment status but i will say this. The result today has sparked a lot of takes about. Should we have been talking about ben all along the steelers decision to stick with him. And i think that's fair on some level but it will also say a loss offensive lineman in game which certainly didn't help them on plays like the one we're just describing and also they were down both. Tj watt and alex. Hightower this is after losing bud duprey in the off season and certainly their defense has looked a lot different with what out so i think the last game and a half since what has been sidelined. They haven't had one of their biggest chances to win. Which is one of the best defensive players in the nfl. so i think it's too early to be making definitive conclusions on the steelers. Either way.

"A stress on the buffalo of defense. Because they have to think about how they want to handle that or we're gonna we're gonna to line-up in a traditional sense with our our corner or out there on that running back Are we going to put a linebacker out there on him and now bring a corner inside where maybe he asked the now. Cover a tight end. Something along those lines Simple things like that. Which an offense can do very easily. Without having to completely overhaul their scheme create A lot of stress for defense. And then then you start motioning shifting in moving guys around then you start changing your personnel groups. I mean the steelers were just. They were so eleven personnel heavy last year and a defense had such a good idea about all right. Well here's who's going to be on the field and so you know here's how we're going to line-up to them and that it just we just didn't make it hard on defenses last year I think the steelers have the personnel this year to be one of the most multiple offenses in the league. They can go twelve personnel because they got to really good tight ends in iran and firemen with They can go thing. Go three tight ends if they want. I mean as because agent gentry. I thought blocks really well in the in the preseason. They can go five they can go. Four wides nausea harris. Split out I mean the they can use. Derek watt. who's. I think underused last year. I mean there's an awful lot of talent on that offensive roster that if you get creative with the way that you use that talent you're gonna put a lot of stress on defense. I'm really hoping to see that. From canada absolutely in a. Here's one guy that i want to bring up. But before i do that. We know that. Ben roethlisberger is paramount in this game and we know what najji harris needs to do to open some things up but with the corner and you talked about johnson and of course davis white and jordan. Hoyer had a good game against pittsburgh last year as well. I mean they are loaded in the defensive backfield. My thought is that eric hebron and to a lesser extent. Pat fryer really need to exploit the middle. And i think iran could be the guy to have a lot of success if he could hold onto the ball and i think he's actually a lot better at holding onto the ball and a lot of people think that he is but i really feel that he could exploit that medal and he's going to need to have a good day for the steelers to really make some hay on offense. Am i off. Base there now men. The bills are ripe to be play actions because they are so aggressive with their linebackers Terrain admits is a downhill backer. Man he is he is coming to attack the run and then matt milano. He's not a big duties. He's listed six foot two twenty five something around the around their bronze six five five or six five or maybe even six six. You got some guys with some size advantages. That steelers can get the buffalo backers aggressive against the run Or they can scheme them so that you can now get maybe a fire or or ibran matched up all milano. You got a big advantage right there that you that you can exploit so yeah absolutely. I'm i'm a huge advocate of tight ends in the passing game. There's a reason why so many teams in the nfl are now trying to add. These sort of hybrid. You know these flex tight engineers move tight ends whatever you wanna call him and it's because they create they create match problems and when you get a gallic fire moves Block end catch than You know you can use him however many ways that you can think of on the white board you know and so that should be a really interesting to look for this week. Well absolutely great analysis. I appreciate it you know. I have already gone on record of what my pick is going to be. And i picked the buffalo bills thirty pittsburgh twenty four but after this last half hour in this conversation for the pregame show. You have me wanting to change it completely. I can't because then the The stat geek. And the editor. They'll be all over me for not being consistent. So i'm gonna stick exactly where i am but you have me feeling it so i'm gonna ask you your score for this game as we get ready to wrap things up. Well you know. As i talked about being optimistic and then all the things. I'm excited i'm also picking the bills so and it's not because i i don't you know it's up. I don't like the steelers team. It's just that I don't think they're ready to win in buffalo in week one because buffalo's bringing back pretty much their entire squad from last year the steelers that a tremendous amount of change especially now when you think about the offensive on but the the key to to really winning the football game beyond you know what candidates able to scheme up is just going to be how well can the steelers run the football control the clock play action the bills You know they they have not run it well again. The past two years and they've lost both both times. I don't know if the offensive line is ready to tell you. I mean that'd be the first time that these guys have ever played a real game together. And i think the steelers are going to get better as the season goes. I think they're going to be a team like you alluded to earlier that they might lose him buffalo week one but if they see the bills in the playoffs it might be a whole different story because i expect the steelers to be much better team in december january than they're going to be on the first weekend september so i had the bills winning twenty seven twenty. I think it's going to be really good game. But a game. In which inevitably. I think the steelers would just be a little bit short alright. It's earlier. let's wrap this up if you were going to give them a quick fifteen second pre game speech. You're talking to the steelers to get them ready. What are you saying to them. Do your job do your job. I mean you can. You can give the greatest Motivational speech in the history of football. The best one i've ever seen is al pacino in any given sunday. That's a great hollywood speech where he talks about. You know defending every inch in the blood and sweat and all that it takes to defend every inch the field. It's help speech and it made me want to run through a.

"I have zeke zeke. Six out of that six. I trust in the least. I trust his team. The least i trust him the lease and i don't think that's going to be very good cowboys team. And if i by the way as as low as i always say this if you're in around by round draft like you're eating burgers and you're probably living in your mom's basement but if you are around by round draft and i have the six pick on like fuck. I hope i hope i don't end up with. Zeke elliott would be my my take. What do you think. It's i'm giants fan and actually would take the third this year because i agree with crowd. The top tier is mccaffrey. Delvin cook and you can argue about what a tear means but to me. It's those are the top two guys because if you take injury out of it. I have no question. That they're going to be elite. Like non with mccaffrey and cook only intriguing. Stop them the other guys is just a series of questions of things that are outside of their control for lack of a better term zeke. My only question is production is going to play with this weird pitching injury. I don't like yeah when someone is. But i think that's a fair question. Can his quarterback eight throw a ball and be stay on the field for board four games. Yeah and the offensive line. Dallas isn't always healthy but the other guys always questions to right and so you've got camera at the questions again. It's basically scored a touchdown a game for entire career. He's basically top three. Or four all time touchdown sorts greer. If you're he's leaves. James takes over the offense. Isn't that good and four weeks. Like oh chimeras not scoring touchdown a game. And he's kinda average like david montgomery but like with a cooler name. It's like a pretty dumb we're just we're ranking kamera as if breezes still on the team i think and i think that's the problem we're assuming nothing will change but breezes like the most efficient quarterback ever chimeras scored sixty touchdowns in sixty games now. You fucking jameis. Winston who never checks down those deep. All the time has turnovers. We're not going to score as many points tastes them. Hills gonna get red zone. Russia's that's the other thing is you throw into triple coverage and that's the thing it's not like i'm not saying don't draft late first rounder. I'm concerned that if the offense is worse again he's not committed not in eighty five percent snap skies sixty five percent of snaps scott And when you stop going touchdowns that that matters. It's why do before we go what running back would move into that top sex like by the end of the air will will be saying decay That guy we should have had them in the top. Six i regret is it najji harris for you. Yeah and if it's not nauseousness where talked about him. I think has a pretty good argument. Basically because of what we just talked with alvin kamara like he's gonna be the alvin kamara for the chargers. I think you know with that offense. Herbert showed a willingness. And you know like he wanted to check down a lot. Yup late in the season when actor came back is almost to the detriment of their offense. I think is gonna get fed in the passing game You know he could catch eight passes plus he's just really explosive You know. I don't know what their offense is gonna look like really but you know you got the The lombardi style. Coming from coming from new orleans and i think you know the way that they used alvin. Kamara is how they're gonna use echo so he could be the guy that you look at you like. Why weren't we hire on this guy early on or he could be the guy you're looking at because they're showing them on the sidelines. Were extremely close in week. Six near like. Oh my gosh towards dollars for him. He has a torn labor as he played six games in a row and his career can't remember he has cruiser. Who's your guy. Damian harris dodgy harris are equa to move into that group Probably nadia harris. I there's like a good chance. That naji harris like leads the league touches which is kind of say i think if he was drafted second like saquon was he'd be a top five pick and drafts right now. Kind of like clyde last year. I think we're all anxious guard blood. Yeah scarred from clyde he was a late first round or if you went second in the draft he'd be a top five picture. Yeah i like hyphen says. Eighty five percent of the touches stat. That that i think that's fair like if you end up running back who is involved in plays all the time constantly. That's why. I like antonio gibson and you think he's gonna. I know you were about mckissick. But i just think gibson is going to have to be on the field and that team actually has a chance to be good all right so you have a few more pods coming. And then when we move into the season wins your big gambling. Props preseason pod sarah yeah okay And they were moving into the season. And we've got a lot of stuff going and you could check.

"Not you it's me. What are the guys that broke up with. What never had was clyde. Edward solaire who went for fifty nine dollars in my keeper league last year and i just don't see it like at some point with the eye test when you're watching football like he just seemed too small to me and it to me he just seems like a third down back and i just don't see it and then people that don't know he's hurt and it's going he's going to be better but you know when you compare somebody like kim. Last year did najji harris this year. Nadia harris seems like a monster. I did thank. You can compare those guys know. There's certainly different running backs and i. I have harassed higher. I've paris option running back. I'm number ten. And i layer missy where i don't know my rankings. Memorize alert fifteen. So i'm slightly lower mature rb to. Here's the thing about. Here's the guy you know. Still got a decent amount of work right. Sixty six percent of the chiefs running back such last year were free leers Or allaire you know. G- average sixteen fantasy points per game in the eight games and when she got so when he got such. That's well the prog for him was two fold number. One is got touchdowns and you can say unlucky. Also got closely couldn't convert japan's a smaller guy The other problem is an also kim's video like all sudden like you know. Travis chelsea is in the backfield and they do the shovel pass. They do tyreek hill on sleep. They get really creative. You know and Around the around the goal line Andy reid nuts. That's another challenge for him but the other piece of it is is that i think he came in with such height was actually fine last year. You know he's really twenty points for gang was he was a top twenty running back and that was with you. Know getting very unluckily cussons. The problem is is that everyone came in with a high of having an item is a top seven guy later. Like alvin kamara. Basically right yeah. That's what we thought he was going to be. And so he's a really interesting guy this year because he could just be. That could just be like you know more about like you know a more of a pass catching back where rock complimentary back than it's worse on the other hand. It's the i n running back. That hasn't been fantasy. Relevance like has been a top twelve guy in a long time any rebate coral buckhalter. At one point he made you know Why am i sure. Kendrick west he made sure kendra west thing kendrick west era. Yeah exactly everyone does. You're wearing your jersey right now. I i just you know. So i'm fifteen which is a little bit of a hedge candidly. That cares more. Because that's where i am as well you like harris more and i think i a quite a bit. That's despite his no. What are the odds on sheriff's leading. Nfl jerry's oh leading on carries. I don't have that. But i do have I do have yet rushing awards. Hold on. I think it was around. Twenty two one. It was around the same as what damon harris. Plus i would say that is i would smash now art. Because.

"I want and this is what makes me upset. All nuances lost I still things just team like i. I think the defense good. I think the front step is gonna fire and i had some questions about the secondary. Don't need to get into all that but offensively. I said this. I think but my words were taken out of context but ross springer look good like it was literally i only got mad at someone because they pointed to would terrible deep ball but like he doesn't have to have a great deep ball for this offense to be efficient. Drew brees proved that to us for two years They just need to the most important thing. And i think every steelers fan would agree with me is he just needs more than two point. Two seconds throw it. Some of that is on him but a lot of most of its on the offensive line. And i think there's things that matt canada can do schematically to buy him a little bit of time. I was intrigued. By the fact that i've been rosberg under center. A little bit in the preseason outing as back turned to the defense which is not something he does. So i think you know they're in and i also think the use of motion is gonna help najji harris and you know keep linebackers a little bit until and get them out of their fits. I don't know i. I think this could be an average enough offense and if the defense is anywhere close to what they were last year that there's a team that's potentially a wildcard team. You're right it all centers on the group upfront. Though and it's weird. Because i'm gonna kinda talk out of both sides of my mouth here where i go into this season and you know. I'm pretty friendly with the numbers community here. I believe in all these things in it but man. I really want nashi. Here's to rub it in the face. A lot of these nerds talked about explosiveness with him. Like i just really want him to go out there and eating the ways that he can but it was a pick. I wouldn't have made in the first round like that capital needed to go towards that offensive line kendrick green who they picked out of eleanor. I think it's gonna start at center for them. It looks like here so it's gonna be him trade turner dotson at left guard. And then you've got banner and a core fort left tackle left. Tackle the one that concerns someone that he was not good. I was he was the one i was watching. Yeah i mean it's him like re of the of the games. I re watched yesterday of teams. That need to worry about their starting left. Tackle him in miami. Austin jackson is not good enough like he's just not good enough right now but core falls in where i look at the rest of that group and i say all right. I see things that you can kind of work with. Trae turner's played a bunch of football zach. Banner was the starter before the injury for them. Like kevin dotson. Who did that weird thing where people said. He was out of shape this off season as a monster. So it's it's young and upside based up front. They're the candidate step helps. I just wonder how long that works too. Because outside of his stay in the south side in that facility when he was at pitt matt canada's other ventures have not been quite as successful here so like skill players. Yes very much very very much. I up the harry. We do.

"Bronco's quarterback battle continues. teddy bridgewater. Got the opportunity to start this one and was outstanding Numbers wise. I mean great passer rating came out. Did the job hit. Hamblur on a touchdown converted fourth-down. Hit jerry judy in stride across the field where it was like. Oh yeah jerry was surprised like wait what i can get the ball right where i'm running. That's great but let's be realistic here because whether it's teddy or drew and we don't know when they'll declare starter. Maybe they'll take the sean payton approach and do it sooner than later. I mean this is a teddy was better in this game. I think drew lock was better in the last game But tatty so far four possessions in the preseason three touchdowns in a field goal has weapons. Does this matter to you. It doesn't matter in a real way in terms of how you're drafting judy sutton fant and company. Because if it doesn't it does matter to me with jerry judy. I don't think that jerry. Judy can't break out with one and will break out with the other. Some astronomically wide gap. That where someone's on or off my board. But i do think that the style of play teddy bridgewater has matches. Jerry judy fantastically. It's it's what i just said it's a hidden stride on these slants across the field. His teddy bridgewater is accuracy is far better than drew locks. Think about jerry jones rookie season. He was always open. And you brought this up. many times. He had i believe the lowest or the the highest of second green of pass catching passes. Yeah of of uncatchable passes and and that was drew lock. So that's the difference to me. If if if jerry duty is getting open and not able to catch the ball because it's not put on him That's not good for fantasy. You want to be able to catch the ball. So he's the one player where if they came out tomorrow and said teddy. Bridgewater is the starter. Because i have based on last week. Actually finally i held off the whole offseason but last week i changed major. Lock the starter. So if they were to come out and declare bridgewater the starter. I would be moving. Jerry judy up okay. Let's talk about some running backs. Let's talk about nause harris. He had a huge forty. Six yard. rumbling Kinda surpri speed on the edge reception where it didn't look like. It was going anywhere and then all of a sudden he breaks down the sideline and i mean he stiff armed a guy Think broke another tackled manage to juke the safety who was like ten yards away from him. It was it was announced standing catch and run. The i think the headline for me on on why now. She's in an rb one for me. Now he's he's at twelve and part of that has to do with how fluid the new offenses in pittsburgh. Big been looks great. Yes they offense. Looks great so i think we should talk about a holistically here with pittsburgh but everything looks great in pittsburgh right now. We know the defense is going to be good and Now she's going to be the lynchpin in the backfield so it's just math. I mean he's a talented first round running back on a team that the offense is looking good and big. Ben looks good they you. Mike tomlin utilizes a three down running back in his. I can just pure volume alone. Najji harris should be drafted as a running back one then build up side of what. If he's actually the player that the steelers believe. He isn't and drafted him in in the first round. Yes the offensive line stinks. I get it but the volume was going to be incredible. Big ben's arm looks lively and that's just one preseason game but that throw the forty air yard throw deontay looked pretty solid the touchdown a passes were very strong to pat frame youth. The new new rookie tight end catch touchdowns. But i'm i've i've been all in on najji and this is like this is full confirmation bias to me i. I'm drafting najah with full confidence. And i'm drafting him. In front of a lot of other running backs i am side of my top digging dodgy or i would champion. I would technology harris over antonio you knew where i was going. Yeah and i can tell you why if you owe me a climate inside the recesses of mike's enormous head yeah you can get lost echoey. Let's hear mike is more confident in third-down snap for nausea harrison. He is for antonio one hundred percent. It yeah jk. Dobbins in gus edwards. They split time over the first three drives in the ravens second game. Each had four carries. Gus has been in our sleeper category of the ud k. for awhile but dobbins a third round pick gusts in eleventh round pick. Dobbins is the better player physically talent wise why he was drafted higher. You see it on the field He's going to get the he's gonna get slightly more work than gusts For sure he's going to end up with more fantasy points swimming. Both of them are healthy. But that gap is wild. I don't think the dobbins is being overdrafted. I just think. Gus is being left for dead in the tenth round. Where you've got a guy who's going to touch the ball enough to be fantasy relevant a lot of weeks for the ravens marking rooms out of the way. He's got the touchdown opportunities to so i. I do like gusts as a late round. Flyer gus or change connor james connor james connor..

"Lynn played in that as a player. So theoretically could call that kind of offense if he wanted to And my see is that the lions the one good thing they have is an offensive line. So they're probably gonna need to lean on that a little bit maybe andrea swift grinds out a bunch of tough yards this year and ends up at the top of the top of the board. I liked that connor as we've discussed often on the show got steel with pennzoil Let's let's let's give our teams are. It can be super bowl. It can be just and any team accomplishment. Super bowl isn't what everyone has to win this year. That's the way it goes time. Although i think we all pick super bowl odds so yeah you have to win the super bowl to be worth anything I'll go first. And i am going with the steelers at forty five to one here and it just doesn't really add up. I feel like. There's such an overreaction. To two things with a sealer team number one the ugliness of their playoff loss. Although i think if you were to simulate that game i don't know one hundred million times across the multi-diverse you would not find another instance where the game begins with mark eastbound c. snapping the ball into his own end zone so i think he can kind of throw that out but overall i think. It's just kind of overreaction to ben rothlisberger who by the way is not particularly slimmed-down but that's okay. He was never very slim throughout his career. But everyone's kind of treating him as incredibly limited quarterback and yes he is not like the all world throw the football that he was ten years ago. But he's not a guy who you have to say like well you know in order to get him comfortable. We can only do this or this or you can have an expensive offense with him. He might not be the kind of high velocity downfield Sort of you know. Deep intermediate thrower that he was earlier in his career but he can still get the ball now field you saw when they needed it and when they came back beat the colts or even in that playoff game when they had to come back and score a bunch of points against the browns. He'll get the ball downfield. So i think it was just a matter of kind of holding him back all season to limit the number of hits. I don't think you'll see that again this year. We know the defenses great. They're probably going to have more of a running game this year. With with najji harris joining the backfield. There i just. I think thirteen that's built to win it and they've won it before with this coaching. This quarterback and i think forty five to one is a little bit a little bit too long for my taste. Yeah gary i was really surprised by those odds as i was going through i was also surprised and thus picked accordingly that the patriots were thirty five to one and i think. Also another of an overreaction something that happened last season which in the patriots case was their first season without tom. Brady wasn't a seamless transition. Cam newton comes down with the season kind of dies from there. They have a league high up number of opt-outs but hey i'll take the patriots at thirty five to one. I mean i think taking the patriots at thirty five to one anytime this millennium would then good from thirty five to one. I'm gonna. I'm gonna go for it. Giannis getting amazon at a penny right here fantastic. I'm gonna just divide my not by the forty niners at fourteen to one. In the broncos at forty five to one.

"That may be challenged quickly in buffalo for week one. Then they play the raiders. The bengals and green bay in green bay. So that'll be an interesting start to the years we get to see nausea harris for the very first time. Yeah najji is really the only player i actively want from this rostrum. Okay but i'm fine at prices. Yeah i'm fine. With chase klay pool. Eric brown will be a streamer through the season. He doesn't get talked about. But you're right but the only player i liked like i would love to leave a draft with najji if i get him value if i leave with chase. I'm fine with that. But i'm not like targeting him in my drafts. Final word on nause is that if he doesn't get the passing game work which is not a guarantee because we've watched. We've watched edwards alert last year. Clyde edwards josh jacobs coming into the league with only that pedigree even mile sanders to a degree in year one. It took awhile not a guarantee so if that doesn't happen and you have a bad offensive line. It could be low ceiling. Okay yeah per maybe. High floor maybe. Ten points is guaranteed from nausea every week. You could definitely be disappointed in nagae. There's no guarantee gets passing work. But i believe he will. And i don't think you will be disappointed all right. Let's talk about the second place team last year. But with the highest win total projection. Heading into twenty twenty one and the baltimore. Ravens finished eleven and five. It was a roller coaster ride tale of three seasons. I've read that book. it's a good one. Oh yeah yeah. Got the whale on it right yeah moby dick. That's it moby. Dick was one of the main characters of tale of three cs. I thought they started the year five and one then they lost four or five games and then they won five in a row heading into the playoffs. This was the resurgence of lamar at the end of the year. If you had him in the beginning you were not disappointed. You were devastated. This was you had to pay so much to get lamar and then weeks. One through eleven. Which is the fundamental part of your fantasy season where you were building your playoff team to make the playoffs. He was the quarterback nine. Yeah and you probably play in ten or twelve team leagues. So you had the quarterback nine that you had to spend it. What a second round pick on. Which means you didn't have a great running back or wide receiver core one of those two and you very well did not make the playoffs to enjoy his incredible run from weeks. Thirteen through seventeen. Now someone like mike. The fancy hitman right. Who traded for lamar jackson midseason bottom at a value. You know when when he was struggling actually made it to the playoffs and enjoyed that do it. That was the way to do it. So the question now is the the receiving the passing game. Is everything for this team. That's what we have to nail down. That's all we have to as fantasy managers figure out. What is the passing game. Look like for the ravens. Because i know how i view it i believe. I have a pretty clear picture of what what i think will happen. But i'm curious your take on twenty twenty one ravens passing okay last year. Thirty second in pass attempts thirty second in passing yards pace of play thirty. First we've talked about the small pie. That's what we're talking about about. Total pass attempts the. It's it's an efficient offense but you don't get a lot of opportunity. Sixty two plays a game eight fewer than the top teams in the league. So it's it's a slower run centric offense where lamar is going to. Tuck it I think that by the way small sidebar here mike strategy of trading for lamar late in the air. It's worth mentioning it again. We talk about drafting quarterbacks late. That doesn't mean we don't want a great quarterback We want the best quarterback. So yeah i would rather have the best in the world. So if someone drafts. Let's go through the elites the allens lamar's cuyler mahomes mahomes if someone drafts them high and they go through a lull and you can get them on the cheap go for it. Yeah because you're getting you're not paying the draft value but anyways back to the passing game. Here's what i know about baltimore. They don't throw it a lot. They were extremely discontent with the receiver core as they should be so. That's a chicken or egg right. Why throw the ball a lot. If you're very discontent with the guys are trying to catch the football right. You went out last year. You you kick the tires on dez bryant in the year because you couldn't get enough out of look hollywood's good player. Just kick the tires. You put the tire on the car man. I mean they're literally put this on the field that you put the ball ball tire on the car. Gotta drive on something that's right and then the offseason they go out. They signed sammy. Watkins they draft rashad bateman. Hollywood can't function as your only option. That's not that's nothing against hollywood brown but he was their only kind of viable option outside of mark andrews. Willie snead is. He's i mean he's not enough no no he he's a he's a wide receiver four or five for an nfl team and he was thrust into being the wide receiver. One to over the last couple of years. So my and i'll hand you the mike. I want to hear what your breakdown is..

"Candy. I didn't think we'd go this. Far with gordon on the mighty ducks but oh man. I love that movie. It was when i was a kid growing up. I loved hockey and was okay anyways. Let's let's get this trained back on the track sally. It's get the trolley moving in the right direction illegal garrett says he's until we can definitely conclude the days with the whole. It's not really. Because he was here he'd be yell yeah he would be challenging for sure. All right okay. Let's let's talk about the headline of this episode. Which is sleepers. I was thinking about this. We tossed around. Some ideas are slack channel. About what are we going to talk about tonight. And what about players. That might really be a big part of this football team but aren't really being talked about a lot. We could go a bunch of different ways with this. You can justify a lot of players. But i would say that someone like benjamin todd rothlisberger even najji harass. People are talking about them. That's not a sleeper. That's not something that's going to sneak up on wild. Where did this guy come from. Never expected this. We have a list. We both have a list and we're going to go through these players. Say who is going to be asleep. I just thought of another one down there all right so brian no particular order. You're gonna start on offense or defense. Let me start on offense again you know. Look at all these wide receivers at the have and we can get into the conversation to the steelers have a true one. I don't care. I'm talking about the talent that they have makes them a one when you combine them all. It does not matter to me. Gone are the days of fourteen touchdowns by one dude and dominating. Mr mr abie mr. What did you guys call. Third and fifth which i always hated that nickname mist mister. Third and fifth. You know gone those days you. This is a stable and in the stable. There's one guy that when he gets his opportunity he's always comes up huge but it sparingly and it's james washington our good friend grandpa strong so i'm bringing up number thirteen when i say that he could be a sleeper that goes to the next level this year because his contract. We'll be up this year and we're talking about how jujubes playing for another contract again. You have a guy in chase claypool that is looking to send to the top of the mountain. Make a big jump from one year to and you have deontay johnson. That has a lot to prove this year. But he's he's on the radar. That's the thing these are guys. That aren't really on the radar. And when you don't wanna do you think of all those guys you're not going to put. You're really not putting james washington in the top three. Now he has talent. He has tons of talent he is strong. He's a fighter. he's a clutch guy. But if he comes out strong in the first few weeks of the season and bettas trusting them maybe one of those other guys gets an injury he can put up a year. That would really would. Rival would rival the rest of the team as far as the of the stables wide. Receivers in i would be really comfortable in saying that. He's going to get a big contract in free agency if he has a good year. So i'm picking james washington as one of my top sleepers yay sadly. I feel like he's gonna need an injury at a wide receiver to get a good opportunity but Yeah the other day on twitter. You can follow me on twitter handle underneath my screen. I just put out a random question. Is who do you. Think's more receiving yards. James washington pat farm youth in. It was shocked. I was most eight hundred. i think. Eight hundred votes or something like that and It was like fifty four percent just for james washington. I thought i was going to be much higher. Give a lot of people that were. Because i mean think about it. How often are you gonna be on the field unless they run four wide receivers out there and when you have two tight ends it can play and you're trying to run the ball more. You're probably not going to do that too much. I just. I think that that's the best chance that he has to get A lot of playing time as if someone gets banged up ahead of him. Maybe i don't hope no one gets hurt hard for me. My i prefer going offense. I is none other than whoo kenny. Woo anthony mcfarland. Even i've heard things about that movies. You brought it up anyways If you've been following behind the curtains coverage of oj's where we take videos from twitter and we kind of put them all together and keep updating it. There's been a lot of videos of running backs. Why because they've run their drills right below the balcony where the media are ends. We've got an up close and personal look at a lot of these running backs whether it's najji harass you getting a lot of eyeballs on him but also anthony. Mcfarland has not missed a workout yet. He is looking really really fast. The nets never been an issue with him but he just looks a. He looks like he's that change of pace back that the steelers could really really use you. Think that everything that nausea harris does well. You know you talk about his vision. His lateral quickness his burst. His size is strength. It's all great. There's only one thing he doesn't have breakaway speed. Anthony mcfarland has that breakaway speed. And so. I think that this is a guy that last year..

"Wait so there you go. It's now in your head because it's now in mind for those who've listened to our podcast for a really long time and i'm not talking about all. I started listening in twenty twenty. This this myself and brian goes way back. I mean this is back in the blog. Talk radio days It's kind of old school. It kind of brings back multiple vibes as brian. Yeah i think. I think we're talking t- thousand fifteen or sixteen. Jeez and and so. We have a lot of fun and we were doing this. And we were doing the preview together. Before dave came in and then dave joined the preview and man we. We haven't looked back. So it's been great to have dave as a part of it but it's it's nice to go old school. I'm feeling it's nothing against dave by the way. This is not a crackdown. Dave were comfortable doing a show together. We'll be fine all right. So let's i want to tell a story here to get us started. And this is going to lead into our first topic so i had a softball game tonight. Dave plays in the same softball league. We don't play each other. Teams were in different divisions anyways. That's neither here nor there. There is a gentleman on another team that we both know who actually follows behind the steel curtain. A he's a member. He has his own name on the website. He comments on articles all the time. So i was on first base. He plays first base. And i said hey what do you think about the steelers this year and he said to be completely honest with you. Jeff i could be talked into one way or the other and i love. What do you mean he said. I could be talked into them. Being really good. And i could also be talked into them being absolutely lousy and i felt like that had some merit but my thought my question for you brian to start the show off was okay. What are your thoughts in here. We are would the steelers just wrapped up the second week of their third phase of. Ota's we've already been through free agency. The draft is in the rear view mirror. How do you feel about this team right now. I feel pretty comfortable with this team. Because i keep going back to one phrase during the press conference before the nfl draft twenty twenty one. And it was kevin colbert. and mike. Tomlin kevin colbert said this. We have the roster to play a game tonight if we need to. So that means going to the draft that they were looking at a few positions that they were going to hone but if they can go and play a game without najji heiress without fryer mu green or any of those guys they were comfortable in doing so and the way they built this team. I am you know a lot of people aren't thinking it lately. But i'm thinking that i'm an optimist and i'm really optimistic about the steelers and this team because i like the way that they've put everything together. I look at the end of two thousand twenty one. Excuse me two thousand twenty and that playoff game in where they were in what was going on and now i look at the pieces that they have here now and the pieces that they don't have here now and i'm still pretty comfortable with the pieces that they have here now. And here's the thing. The reason being is you can't count but depre- in being gone. If he wasn't on that team in the playoffs he was already gone. So they've actually improved from the wild card game and with the additions of their draft picks. I feel that they're improved the whole way around that they're better off than they were on january ninth of two thousand twenty one. You kinda. yeah you kinda went into my follow up there and that's the the number one question that a lot of fans are asking in. I honestly when i hear these narratives coming from nfl network or espn or cbs. Sports any other outlet. The does things like predictions and things. I understand that the steelers have on paper the toughest schedule of any a team. That's all based off twenty twenty. Win loss percentage. So dave about Makes you check that out. Great episode by the way. It's only on audio platform but i ask myself is. Is this team better in if people were saying they're going to be awful. This team's not that different than the team that started at eleven one. Twelve games and yes. They failed down the stretch. But what is the one thing if you could pinpoint something brian that gives you calm and says this team's going to be pretty good even if everyone else is saying they're going to be off the one thing that makes it there so many things jeff but if i had to say the one thing it's matt canada a scheme because i think that was really. What was hindering everything. The scheme i think the offensive line gets better in the scheme. And i think adding najji harris and the way that the running backs are going to be used even if it wasn't Harris i think canada makes all the difference in the world. Man he might be fool's gold. I might be drinking the canadian cool eight. If that instance comedian dry were better. Yes here's the nose and to be honest with diesel agree one hundred percent. I'm going to go a different route as to why i think this is going to be okay in. This would be the same person that some would point to and say why they're going to be awful b. t. r. benjamin todd rothlisberger. He is still the straw which stirs the drink. And they're gonna go as he goes. I really do think that the steelers are going to be not not only more balanced with cannon which ties into your topic that you just mentioned and also. I just think that everyone is bashing him. After the way that things went down the playoff game and down the stretch. We know after seventeen years. The denver office replays well when he has a chip on his shoulder and he has a giant chip on a shoulder. Brian how confident are you in. Bt are in twenty twenty one. do you think it's the end of the rope ended the road. Whatever you wanna call it or do you think he has a lot of good football left. Be t are..

"The up and coming while travis. Et and apparently is playing wide receiver. If you listened to a training camp reports already but he's going to need to because they already have a good running back. I didn't understand this pick. I did from the sense of their pairing trevor lawrence back to najah hair so then then we can get into mass guy. James robinson what what is there to talk about nausea. He's just gonna he's gonna be a belco a ton of work he's gonna catch the ball. He's going to run the ball. Like najji is what you want in a first round running back. Yes he's older but guess what redraft we don't care running back surf in for dynasty one contract typically anyway so like nausea perfect for what you want you wish. The steelers line was a little bit better but volume is outweigh the crap that they call the offensive line you think. His hands are underrated. Probably because people look at his size they think big as can't catch the ball he can like he's he's brick pass catcher. He's not going to set the world on fire but he's gonna catch thirty passes. At least syria. I mean the only at three drops and forty three catches that. That's the big thing that sticks out to me that nobody else talks about his ability to catch the ball which really makes him powerful three down back in the nfl. Yeah he could see two hundred and fifty touches. The only thing that worries me is like you said is that offensive line there absolutely terrible but in addition to it they were bottom five and rushing attempts last year. So i don't know if that's just because they only had james conner who is injured. I think pittsburgh wants to get back to running the football. But i definitely don't want this team to be in the bottom five for rush attempts again. No but you're a thirty eight year. Old ben ben roethlisberger. He's not a year removed from the Elbow surgery but who knows what his arm looks like. I think they did the short passing attack because they couldn't run the ball but najji brings what connor couldn't when he was injured. Yeah and i think that's why they went out and drafted him in the first round. Last year they had the least amount of rushing yards as well so they went out they. They identified that they got their guy. I think they're going to feed him the ball as much as he can handle. Reggie bush went on record saying that. He thinks he's going to be better. Than derrick henry in the nfl which is obviously some pretty big shoes to fill. I thought you were gonna start that. And say that reggie bush thought harris's going to be better than reggie bush and i was like that's not a high sat there as you know that that's a little bit higher bar i don't i'm going to go on record and say i don't think but it's a bold take. Yeah i i don't agree with reggie bush either but just some high praise from a well known former. Nfl.

"Bills in the team is headed in the right direction. I do like what the buffalo bills are doing on offense and the thing is i just i know there. There are a few pieces away. Like i saw a mock draft the other day i think it was mel kiper mantra and it had getting najji harris. I think that'd be a great pickup for that team on offense again. I think you wanna get a nas in colby's not good. But i think you wanna get another weapon for him for josh allen offense maybe like another tight end or a receiver. Something but stefan days is no doubt very good. But get josh allen more pieces on offense and i think the offense can take the next step. The pittsburgh steelers out. I think the pittsburgh steelers that way. The season ended for them and the way how they went what they were lost. Four of the last five games by the pittsburgh steelers finished. he's terrible note and then went to the plows. Guy embarrassed by the cleveland browns. You have big band with a huge salary cap. Hit if he comes back. You can't sign everybody with that type of salary cap. And even if they move on from big ben. There's just not going to be enough around the team to sustain them going into the playoffs next year. So i had this steelers. Allies will have made the playoffs next year tennessee. Titans had them in. I think the tennessee. Titans are actually going to be a very good team again next year with derrick henry they just need i think as well i think they need some help on defense. They need a good pass rusher. They can get one in the draft. This drought has a lot of good. Pass rushers in this one. So i think tennessee. Titans are in the playoffs. But yeah i have them making the playoffs baltimore ravens in. I think this offense is missing another receiver to lamar jackson. The jury is still out about lamar jackson throwing the football. I think we all can agree on that like he did not. There's no doubt. Lamar jackson is electric football player. Like when he's run the football making plays with his legs. Whatever it is. He's electric throwing the football. That's where we start to see some issues like when it comes to nina. Throw their way back into a game. You don't see consistently with him.

Day harris was walking in zone and One of the big drug honchos pulled up to him. Said you najji harris and he said yeah he goes. I'm just gonna let you know. I'm not gonna let anybody touch. Okay thanks but they said that this is the way malu put it. He said when the hood knows. There's somebody who has a chance to get up. they look after you. Incident nausea with that gentleman. He was able to get a pass by the way. That drug dealer is no longer willis. It's gone onto his reward. But you talk about very quietly inning things done. I mean to his teammates on his side of the ball. We're nominated for a heisman. One of them want it in smith and jones but smith jones and harris. Old time. american names for you. But quietly has become the all time leading rusher in the history of alabama. That's really something. And if you think about the sec title game he ran for nearly two hundred yards and accounted for five touchdowns in fact if you wanna look at the history of college football and some of the great offenses think about that. Sam bradford team at oklahoma. Woody throw five touchdown passes. I think it was fifty five touchdown pass think about joe burrow last year. And that offense at lsu. He and devante smith became the first pair of teammates in history to each score twenty touchdowns. Now that stuff isn't noticed when he does a lot of blocking a lot of pass catching but the argument can be made. You're not gonna win it. Because as i said the quarterback and the receiver got more love. But you can make an argument. That harris was the mvp of alabama this season. And you think about the ability to balance that offense you know you blitz. he's going to go out for a pass you. Don't he's going to run it down your neck. So just a shot from a man. Because quietly the star as i said this is a guy who has more rushing yards then art ingram derrick henry all time at alabama all right. We're pleased to have on the show. Someone who might find himself in canton and that would be the professional football fan because they have something called the ford hala fans which just started a couple of years ago and one of the nominees joins us. Now wayne mabry you know him better as the violator at Raider games and Wayne as a lifelong raider fan and growing up on the east side and my dad with tickets from day. One at frank you'll filled in the nineteen sixty. It's good to finally get a chance to talk to you Also doing the pre and post game on the raiders flagship last year. As i did. But i i guess we'll just start from the beginning. When did it all come together for you. That the silver and black was your squad. Well good morning. Thanks for having me on. this journey. mind begin As a eighth grade back in mississippi round nineteen seventy and I think they were playing Kansas city at the time and That was a big brawl. That you know broke up. And i got a glimpse of the helmets of clothes. And you know ma. I've always been into armor that type of stuff medieval you know weapons were have you kind of a weird theodore where i live. But you know decision. Blackie that i think they catch him is now. They've got a one out of power to on that so a need okay. That's a team from california. So my my already shifted. That this is where i wanna go and grew up so i can be as close to that team as possible and Like i say a long journey. I ended up getting to california and seventy seven Being a member of a of a stage band so to speak you know and For the gong show so that was the ticket to get here after that. It was no going back. I was gonna find a way to get close to where that team was as possible. Well i never moved to oakland. When they moved from oakland california me to los angeles christmas in july and i lived out. I could walk to the stadium. Just put it that way so it was just like This is a fan's dream and the violated did come out. Oh i did release him until.
Chris Doering talks Florida and Georgia
"We welcome in chris during Who gives us her. Quite a look ahead to tomorrow's game. Chris in most years florida hosting lsu of the sec this week. It's been pretty quiet. I am curious as you know those two teams so well especially from florida side What what are they thinking as they get one of their bitter rivals in a bitter rival that they are a prohibitive favorite. It is weird. Isn't it paula. Me and thinking back to win. This game was originally scheduled. I thought most lsu people felt like we're gonna get a chance to play later in the year we'll get healthier. We'll get miles brennan back. We'll be in better position. And i would argue that. They're actually in a worse position now than when they were originally scheduled in october. So i it's kind of a weird dynamic with a lotta florida. Fans looking forward to sec. Championship game next weekend for me. This is all about. Florida has nothing to do with their opponent. Lsu it's about getting right offensively full full-fledged dress rehearsal right costumes everything. Let's go for what we're gonna do next week. I i honestly been kind of disappointed with florida's offensive performance. The last three weeks dating back to the vanderbilt came. Because they just look inconsistent. They look like they walk through a haze periods of time. They look like they're not executing and part of it's their own fault for looking so good against arkansas in the second half and missouri against georgia. We set the bar pretty high for them but focused level has not been there for a full sixty minutes. I want to see all fence. Get back to executing at the level. They were early in the year defensively. Let's get some things shored up. Let's figure out how to keep from giving up these long passing plays. Let's get generate some more pressure on the quarterback. Let's be able to to penetrate and stop the run something. I thought they did. Well against tennessee last week but The thing i'm gonna keep my paul. What are the numbers for. Kyle trask because obviously this is a game as you said against a A bitter rival one. That beat florida by fourteen. Last year florida's got a chance to return the favor but they also have a chance to outduel in back to back weeks what mack jones get did against the very same defense. And don't think that winning the heisman trophy is not something that dan mullen really wants. For contrast and something that will help his program significantly going forward in on that subject. How do you compare. Kyle trash to meg jones. And that's really his main competition now and that we know we know what had next two weeks especially next week but what what what what separates college trask. If anything well first of all. I love both of these guys you know as a former receiver. I love the the accuracy. I love the the the way they re defenses and get the ball to the right guy. On what the defense is dictating But i would go back and say kyle. Traffic is probably had a tougher. Time than what mack jones at and. That's not taking anything away. From mac ios but look at how. Good this offense of line is for alabama. Look at how well they've run the football over the last six games or so look at what. Najji harris has done. Devante smith the reason why iraq jones's numbers look so good on the deep passes over twenty yards and no disrespect. Mac has been really accurate. But when you're throwing a guy that's five yards behind the nearest defender. It makes it a little bit easier. So again i think without the run game florida certainly not able to run the football very well. I don't think they're offensive. Line is the most consistent So i think the load that kyle. Trask bears a little bit harder to to carry them. What jones does now with that being said. Look at the weapons of florida has i. I don't think i've ever been able to say at least in recent years. That florida has more receiving weapons around their quarterback than what alabama does. They've been absolutely loaded but Looking at the way that that not only kind of is utilized trayvon. Grimes justin shorter. All those receivers. Jacob copeland has come on as well Forgetting about tony. Who might be one of the biggest Factor mismatch guys in the sec. Right now but the way. They use the running backs as well. That was something that we saw against georgia so a lot of different guys. That are helping. Kyle trask out. But i think with the advantage that alabama has on the offensive line and that run game to complement the throws down the field. I think kyle may have a little bit more of a impressive Season just because of how much he's had to do himself chris. Couple of games. I want to ask you about one. Particular auburn at mississippi state mississippi state has been up and down we. We've been through that conversation. But i'm really curious about auburn. Because they've had some really good moments this year and then some clunkers especially lately. I know what you're doing here paul. You love it. When i go off on auburn and it's been up and down year with them right early in the season. I was really down on him. I was starting to get A little bit more positive with the way they were able to run the run the football figuring out who they were with take bixby and that offensive line and then they got hit with a bunch of injuries up front Bixby was was banged up.
