It's Election Day in Pennsylvania; Who Holds the Edge?
"Morning, glory, America, don't go high candidate who you at live inside the beltway on this election day in Pennsylvania, Tuesday, may 17th, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today in Pennsylvania. I've heard all over the state from Scranton and all the way up in the northern northeastern corner down to Philadelphia. All the way over to Pittsburgh and up to Erie, and I encourage everyone to go and vote for David McCormick for the United States Senate. I also think Lou Bart, let barletta is a much easier to elect candidate. I don't think mister mastriano can win. I know David McCormick can win. I don't think any of the other people can win if you're going to vote for Kathy. Barnett, or Doctor Oz, I think you were throwing your vote away because they can't beat John fetterman. And this election matters so much because if McCormick doesn't get the nomination, we're going to have a very hard time getting the Senate back. In Republican hands and then confirmation of Supreme Court Justices will remain in Chuck Schumer's hands. The opportunity to break the filibuster will remain in Chuck Schumer's hand. It's vitally important to elect David McCormick. The bronze star recipient graduate of West Point grew up outside of Pittsburgh. He built business in Pittsburgh, built jobs in Pittsburgh. He's a Pittsburgh. And so this goes against migraine to say nice things about a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I mean, steelers forever with McCormick, but Dave McCormick's a great American and when you're a West Point graduate and you receive the bronze star for valor in the 82nd airborne in the first Gulf War, you can trust the character.

And the dolphins hired a man named Mike mcdaniel, who is biracial, one of his parents, it's white, one of his parents is black.

Misuse montana's bryan. Even when he was in the team. You know i can see here right. Wow so it is interesting. What does attain depend on. So i want to teach what in the making wrap-up identity but gun act to what is the value of a sack. That's pretty hot new quite within really important. We think about the numbers that tj is asking for you know and it gives me a chance. Yes elliott so random does retain have you most people see it but i do these interesting to think about this because it's not as roll into t.j. What it's relevant to alex hosman. It's relevant to what Ingram ingram melvin. Ingram produces the season. It's relevant to what jimmy. Johns more in money. One day he manages to crack it through with the pittsburgh steelers either white also gets you thinking about. What's news section was. What's touchdown was wat- is a post twenty out run. Was you know these are the things that can you would date. Football is money. You know the money business. Can you tie talk attribute. Sorry a valley to a sec. Well i set to try and find out. Luckily for me. When frank clark was traded for ruled from the save awards to cancel chase. It was not written it obvious. But i'm going back in months and extra extra funding so we're gonna look at seven k. Defensive players that are on the defensive addresses now six russia's That's what we know who getting plus our dog. Donald signed a contract in two thousand eighteen that averages out twenty two point five nine year. Now what i want you to listen to with each of these plays that i'm getting garth. Through is the money that they've got based on a new contract. They signed most Deal new contract. I signed for gown on average By how many sex they got the year before signing the contract so dog twenty two and a half million a year he had twenty and a half saxony before from the previous season and he had so that were equated to one point one million per sock khalil mack son. He's doing twenty eighteen. An average of twenty three and a half million that Gave him a dollar value of one point. Eight million cosac. Frank clocks on us deal twenty nine teen that average twenty point eight million dollars a year that equals one one point. Six two million in terms of the the saxony had in the previous year demarcus lawrence twenty nineteen deal twenty one million dollars average a year his average deal with quite a two million dollars per sack. Von miller twenty sixteen hundred nineteen ninety shaved vitor. Tj once that averaged out with at four and a half sacks and he's previous she at one point three million per sack now split them up from seraing garrett. And i'll give you advice from gats numbers and the reason i've done that. He's that gap chari by south. La charges mouthguard. Cleveland browns have a nuance. That i want you to factoring on. Have you wanna what. I wanted to factor. In sort buses average payers twenty seven million which equates two point four five million pasek and garrett's average g average pay per year of twenty. Five million equals two point. Five million percent now remember the numbers that are giving here dole push sac based on the previous sack number for the new deal. I signed the against the average pay per year. But if you look at barcelona garrett it wasn't an even it's even contract never contracts are really but they both played on a much lower deal right. Similar taught teach much issue if we were to convert this for his money and gave him give him a little upgrade into guarantees. Or bunce's right if you look at that number Over the number that. Because i on the deal in twenty twenty or a full season actually being shut off awake one but anyway regardless if you look at it based on the ninety goading twenty twenty against previous acts viruses went down from two point. Four five nine to one point. Three six. three million and garrett's went down to one point. Zero one million. What does that mean for. Walk because right now if you gave him a twenty eight million dollars average per year basically fifteen bucks loss she. He's number would be one point. Eight six six million back. Now that puts him behind khalil. Knock it puts in just a little bit ahead of frank clock. It puts him behind. It makes him shape sunday. Democracy lawrence makes cheaper than joey bosa. It makes them cheaper the malls. He's a better play of an wilders place right. You could even argue that he. I think you deserve the difference. Claire particularly in twenty nine states of ongoing rubbed against that and our dollar. It depends what you debate in terms of stocks there from each player. The other thing about these to this dishes this is just sax. It's not actually factor in the in the precious like tin. What had sixty one precious lost. You Almost over yet was was over a quarter of the overall number pressures. When it came to the tackle number he had he had fifty five Completed tackles yanni's ten percent of them in the outside linebacker position he had On to loss. Jin hee this other stacks. Today's as well but he's got he's got four sections curry the one point. Eight six million swampland sixty six million and he does so much more any any creates opportunities for other cape lies on that principle to heywood all the wall. Now highsmith was to pray to faced as well you know. He puts people onto partial. He's held off damn time if not two thirds of the time. Twenty eight million if anyone sitting there saying why they paint. Tj twenty eight million is what to pay tj. in fact it's an incredibly could credibly cheek deal when you think the salary cap is going up. I guess it's back chasing a marksman loss. But in five years time the salary cap is probably going to be two hundred seventy million also. It's definitely engulfing about forty to fifty million in the next three seasons in the next three seasons paying. Twenty eight potato is not unfair. The other thing that we know that seems to be the sticking point attended contracts is the guarantor fully guaranteed. The title guarantees to guy chains. Get spread out over the life of the contract you get when you saw on it and then as the title of the guarantees the you get as well for bonuses other contract.

And what have you kind of got me thinking. And i'm not saying so but you know what i'm in almost winnings with their a whole that for later on in the charlotte forty or i sort let. Let's move into that. The first part of the show the college football pop and online's cover so i i listened to almost every show s. h. way You know in this is what better time to shout out to my fellow colleagues on bay.

Fooling one's deals applying agai the hanger. You go the scarborough shar. You've got your enemy. The on thursday nights. You've got the preview on friday Backward tiny so that's all the twenty five original non-clergy pot as the from beta. Say i also listen to radio since my show you know stakes daniel jeremiah and bucky brooks. I listened to the drafted in the draft network. an his other ones. I casually listened to but really united from around the nfl. But this is the main ones those catching up on Dubbing listen to lots debate essay and donna jeremiah was out of out of the pad brought up super seen sue. Some of you may know this but of might not even if you do know about concept the detainees. You're gonna learn something anyway. What shit so essentially assume saying you know usually would have six years to play it for years in college. Obviously read shed some rising for five years. I labor twenty three times and they could still play a portion of the twenty to twenty twenty twenty two twenty twenty one season that would actually counts depending on the division level. Ns specific eligibility rules so basically what these comb certian there were one hundred one thousand and forty seniors. The returned across one hundred twenty nine schools At schools the other thing that was really interesting pretending pretending production site is. Actually i think a bulls together that nicole. Dsp plus but basically they can they measure a metric of how much production is returning to any given tame and that might be Defense role and what they worked out with this. She was in crazy intern in terms of retaining production. In fact it was eight to ten ten percent mall the normal. I normally at sixty percents. So that means. Obviously if you've got five wide receivers you know in only to going to to the draft Trae todd ends on stage four running back since race day. That helps you. Sort of a quite disfigurements across the league Stupid san andy shaded production saini's producing offense defense sort of state. Louisiana was actually the highest Is is the high school The time that i was able to pull the stocks. Marie really interesting article on twenty four seven sports with ninety six percent of their production retaining and in fact non Percent of the offense product offensive production is back in every single wide receiver up. You know even to date that they have to date Ended up being at eleven water sentence for them actually. He's he's returning and they had nine returning seems really really interested in that respect illinois. So that's the college that brought us kindergarten they have seventeen supersedes the she And they went through and seeks lost. So how much that means to them but we do know that injuries which is why kindred green goats do what he did and he was overseeing the starting anyway but guts playing central role and then they actually have seventy percent of their retained production. So should sail. Go you know given that sakes but if this of the nine schools it's kingpins. Documentation of really hyped production or a higher number of sippy seniors. There's nine schools that sort of workout in these tastes. And so one of them's arizona. State and with fourteen seniors an eighty four percent production utah state has nine teen seniors. Ucla has six detainees. And i mean at the same time. All that looks lawyer They've got lake guys links. Zach shaw than a us absolutely going off at the moment. They've gotta tae it's gone off as well Pretty well even within a six seniors. Miami had ninety one percent of their production return. Nolde niece has Seniors return and they lead the sanctions that production percentage are returning louisiana They have that seventy percent production reten return number Their offense and then you've got. I was statement. Eighty eight cent production return on offense. Sorry just return. Full stop. coastal carolina a twenty nationally for their returning production with twelve seniors.
Steelers LB T.J. Watt Still Not Practicing With Team as Week 1 Approaches
"Have sneaky big news coming out of pittsburgh. This is bad and it. Serious steelers superstar linebacker. Tj what is declining to practice. This has been getting very little attention. He's been sitting out since the start of camp wants to contract the steelers having given him one and it's almost impossible to quantify just how good this guy is. He comes off a season in which he led the league with fifteen sacks he had the best pass rush win rate sport meaning. He beat his blocker within two and a half seconds. So he's a superstar. This is a guy. many people are being. It'd be the defensive. Mvp and jeff. Can you explain because again. This is not getting as much attention as i think it should be. Exactly what it is going on there will let me explain why to you just mentioned. Tj watt has been sitting out. he actually hasn't and that's what makes this. Such a weird scenario. Is that because of the fines that players face for a holdout now mandated by the players or not sitting in essentially so he's been going through practices in individual drills but then sitting out team drills and there was sort of. I think there's lingering expectation that that would change once the regular season arrived. It hasn't now mike. Tomlin is scheduled to address the media today. Maybe we'll get some more clarity on what it would take if the team perhaps plans to suit them up anyway on sunday even though he's in team but no doubt a fascinating situation with this added layer the steelers on the fact. They do new deals with players during the regular season. So this doesn't get done before sunday. We're in new territory when it comes to the pittsburgh steelers and negotiations with players.
Steelers Acquiring CB Ahkello Witherspoon From Seahawks
"The pittsburgh. Steelers acquired a cello witherspoon who was drafted by the san francisco. Forty niners spent four years with san francisco. The seattle seahawks obtained in prior to the twenty twenty one season in the steelers sent a fifth round draft. Pick to seattle for witherspoon. Okay this is another one of those moments where the steelers fan base is already reeling a little bit. they're frustrated. There's not j. watt contract. All of a sudden steph onto it zach banner anthony macfarlane gone injured reserve which means they are missing games one two and three no matter what then the steelers pull off a trade in. You probably saw breaking news trade alert the steelers make a trade for cornerback in. You're thinking okay here we go. Let's do this. And it's a keller witherspoon if you're like me and i'm being honest i'm always honest with you. That's why. I hope that. I can connect with you as my listeners. My reaction was who the heck is this guy. I never heard of this guy now. Granted i'm not a draft. Nick i did get into this draft in the twenty twenty one draft i was i studied. More prospects did more breakdowns. And i've ever had in my entire life. Mope witherspoon was drafted back in two thousand seventeen. So i definitely was not doing all that digging back then nonetheless you learn a little bit about the player after you get to know him in after the trade was announced as official by the steelers. Now you're looking at okay. What is this guy brain to the team. Well when we find out. And this is from people like jeffrey benedict. When people like kevin smith who find out that he's a an typically an outside cornerback. He's not a physical has good ball skills. Good size six to everyone always talks about. Oh you can't have a cornerback. That's under six foot. He sticks to ran a four five forty. I believe four or five. Maybe it was right around there.
Pittsburgh Steelers Acquire CB Ahkello Witherspoon From Seattle Seahawks
"The pittsburgh steelers have made a trade going into the twenty twenty one regular season. It is friday. September third when this trade is being reported. It was first reported by. Nfl networks in rappaport. the steelers are acquiring cornerback. A kello witherspoon. If i said his first name correct from the seattle seahawks now witherspoon has not played in the regular season with the seahawks. All he did was was signed with them in the off season and he played in a couple of preseason games this year for them and this is an before being traded to the steelers. We do not know exactly what the trade entails. We don't know what the steelers have given up. There is one thing that we actually do know that the steelers are given up their likely. Losing what would be projected fifth round compensatory draft pick from from this year because when you trade for a player that is that is a compensatory free agent that signed with someone else but you you get them via trade than they count into the formula. That's one one factor that that that's coming

"Four keeping both makeup fitzpatrick. Mt j. watt will be a very tough task for the steelers front office fact. Yes it's old news t. Tj watt is a holden but president at camp well not participating in practice with the team because of contract negotiations. We know all of that. But with plenty of optimism many parties feel that the deal is inevitable but there is a number of being bandied about and it's slowly snuffing out the flame of hope for some one hundred million dollars throw in the fact that the seattle seahawks just signed safety jamal adams to the largest contract in nfl history at his position. The atoms deals for seventeen point. Five million per year thirty. Eight million guaranteed. Money's 'em comes complete with a signing bonus of twenty million dollars mak- mak- minka. Minka is likely to command so much. More than jamal adams. Sure the steelers are expecting to have an exorbitant amount of space under the cap in twenty twenty two but two mega contracts could cripple a team this like having hulk hogan and randy macho man savage at the same time. Well that's mega powers france. So hold onto your hypo cyclo exist. One isn't going to be easy. It's possible but not easy. Backer fiction number five. James washington is expendable. Fiction is washington the superstar that the steelers wanted him to be upon drafting him in two thousand eighteen in the second round of that draft from oklahoma state. No he is not. Rat is mostly due to being crowded stable of receivers in the steel city but still the team leader in yards receiving in two thousand nineteen has been very valuable to the cause and has been known to shine in big moments when chase klay. Poll went down with an ankle injury. Camp worry spread through the organization. Chase was luckily deemed okay but washington's presence on the roster is more important with injuries possible every single week. At this point. I'd much rather have number thirteen for twenty twenty one then a draft pick in twenty twenty. Two draft picks are nice but a lombardi is nicer. so that's it for pittsburgh. Steelers factor fiction. What do you think was point. Well you guys decide to do that. On our social media you can do it hashtag. Bt se b. a. d. Get to me. Let us know or in the comments sections in the article. I know you're not afraid to do that as well. This has been factor fiction. The season is upon us. We're getting ready for some great pittsburgh steelers football and that's a fact jack..

"That the twenty five original beat podcast coming up every week in the fall in the regular season for the pittsburgh. Steelers are on that list of favorites for you. So thank you so much. We cannot do these shows without you. We're dropping new shows every week in the preseason and we just dropped our final show yesterday. Which when i'm recording. This is saturday so we dropped. What ins talking about if you haven't had a chance to check that out. Go head checkout kyle and greg. It is a fantastic show in. Also we have the steelers power half hour we've got mattie perils war room on the steelers. Cutting room floor with jeffrey benedict. Also the let's rides. We have the live mike. We've got factor fiction the show that you're listening to we've got the stat geek all on the audio platform which you're not going to get on the youtube show so check these out and we appreciate it once again. We're not doing these shows without the blessings of our fantastic. Ese family in hashtag bad company. Love you there to hashtag writer dai crew. You're just as important we love you so thanks for supporting us here in. Let's get into it. It's the preseason. Once again the steelers are getting ready to play the detroit lions in a meaningless preseason game. I don't think it's meaningless at this point because you're gonna see some action from ben rothlisberger. You're going to see some starters that you haven't seen in. You're going to see. Probably the crux of the team for the best opportunity in the entire. Preseason all four games that they're playing this year and remember everybody else's only playing three and you know there's always so much to talk about when it comes to the pittsburgh steelers but of course the inquiry surrounding the black and gold or ever-evolving. Definitely especially this week with the steelers standing stefan to it to free up cap space position battles heating up and like i mentioned starters getting ready to play against the steelers at heinz field. Well actually they're gonna play the lions really not the steelers at heinz field but the steelers do play the steelers because they're competing for spots as well but in preseason week three as far as the steelers are concerned. It's the detroit lions. Who are the opponents now to me. It seems like the musical selection. That best fits. This week's factor fiction could be from very close to detroit across the border the legendary canadian group. Loverboy remember them from the eighties. Y'know red leather pants the get lucky album. The fingers crossed on the album. Yeah it's loverboy. They were big back then. Now here's a sample. Everyone's looking to see if it was you. Everyone wants you to come through. Everyone's hoping it will all work out. Everyone's waiting they're holding out everybody's working for the weekend. Everybody wants a little romance. Everybody's going off the deep end and everybody needs a second chance. Oh you wanna piece of my heart you better start from the start you wanna be in the show. Come on baby. let's go. let's go now. You might ask yourself. What do these lyrics really have to do with the pittsburgh steelers. Well maybe good or bad. Just one of them. Excuse to listen to some cannot rock but anyhow there's always a lot to wonder about bt ese tries to answer some of the poignant wondering ahead of time so take a look at some bold statements on this and more as we label them as factor fiction. Will we be on point. Only time will tell factor fiction number. One dan moore junior is making his case as a future starter on the offensive line fact. I really liked what i've seen and heard about the steelers. Fourth round selection in twenty twenty one out of texas am despite the growing pains that came with lining up against alex smith. You know more is being praised for his nasty streak in his blocking abilities now. I thought he handled himself well. In preseason action as well there were plenty of negative comments surrounding the efforts and abilities of tooks core four but upon further review number seventy six seems to be adapting to the left tackle position. Quite well i think the possession arrow for the position might be leaning towards the veteran especially with more practising law. Now on the right side but whether it's right tackle or left tackle the object in the rear view mirror that is number sixty five. The aggie dan moore junior may be closer than it appears factor fiction number two. Kevin colbert is done making trades for the year. Twenty twenty one fiction now. Don't get me wrong. I really don't expect steelers. Gm kevin colbert to acquire any more talent by the way of the trading post in twenty twenty one. But can't he be giving it away. Well giving it away for value. I could envision a player or two in a deep position such as defensive line wide receiver running back punter or quarterback to be shipped off to replenish maybe somewhat depleted draft board next season although importing talent is not completely out of the realm of possibility. It's never going to be for the likes of stefan gilmore or eighteen aaron rodgers. So get that out of your hands not going to happen. But that's okay. Those aren't the guys live. The pittsburgh steelers would be targeting. They'd be probably targeting. A draft choice factor fiction number. Three fans need to get to know the name kalem balaj. That's a fact. I say this not because this will be ear candy. Hearing yinzer pronounced the fourth year running backs name a guy. See that callum belhadj. He's pretty good in that splaine for the steelers. Check them out. he's not najji harris. But he's got that's why It's my best possible yinzer. I know everybody rips on it. But i really think that balaj could become the angela williams valuable but lost stands at six two ways in hardy two hundred and thirty pounds but he's also been clocked in speedy four point. Four in the forty yard dash in his career. Balaj had touchdown on his pittsburgh debut and check this out. One thousand nine yards on four carries with a nine yard gain negated by penalty market. Remember he was only playing in one. Preseason game now. The head. Scratcher is why the former charger dolphin. New york jet is with his four squad in four years though but balaj his said the pittsburgh is the finest organization that he's worked for an environment goes a long long way at times but the main point to consider is that the students cannot live on najji harris alone so balaj has a backup. Could be very filling as a part of the twenty twenty one roster hopefully beyond factor fiction number.

"Game of week. One like that's completely unreasonable. Given what we know about the jets and like again like bring it up like carolina's got an iffy situation. A left tackle like no loss like this. It's going to hurt them and it'll be more. Ken said not much to do season-long here. But it's something that will impact the game by game handicaps that we have and maybe allow us to make some valuable. That's on the jets as we move towards and through the nfl. all right. let's get to the two days now. We talked about the steelers. Let's get to a team. We've made me the team that we've talked to most about this. Nfl miami miami right right is the is the cincinnati bengals win total six and a half minus one twenty two the under at our show sponsor bed rivers plus one hundred to the over bengals about plus infinity to win the afc north minus three sixty to come in last plus four seventy five to make the playoffs minus six. Seventy two miss. We've got a series of player props as well borough four thousand two hundred fifty passing yards twenty five touchdowns. Joey finish brought up in the last hour. Six to one to become back player of the year week. One the bengals three and a half point home underdogs against the minnesota. Vikings can with a total of forty eight. What about cincinnati and bets. That you might have on them this season. This is i mean people listen to pod slash show all the time know that i have an under win. Total it on them already at six and a half and i'm rooting for it to get better as we go. Let's see what happens. Sure is there a case that they're going to be better. Yeah you can make a lot of excuses for why. Zack taylor is six twenty five and one in his two years as head coach You know the quarterbacks that he's had to work with once bro gets hurt especially like he enters a terrible situation and they were terrible team. So is that a reflection on him or reflection on the franchise and is there room for the team to get better. Sure like you can make that case definitely but one thing that strikes me is not so much okay. Great like the quarterback argument is of course valid and and worthy of consideration They've also the last two years. Exacto has been there been and that same defensive coordinator both years liu and a room. Oh forget i guess last name but sounds like you'll next door to me in staten island. New room oh yes. It's not just baked clams by the way. Oh absolutely loves them. Not just as a quarterback has been hurt but this defense same coordinator all three years and he's the coordinator again this year. Twenty seventh and twenty eighth and takeaways. The last two years like is there a reasonable expectation that that's going to improve. If they're a bottom five sixteen takeaways again like broken even be better and they can go under this number very easily like one of the most important things that defense can do. Obviously just give you a short field force turnovers. There's been no evidence that team has been able to do that and it's not just that it's there's been no evidence and they're keeping everyone in place again so it just like. What is a reasonable expectation for this team. The schedule is very interesting real quick..

"Linebackers aren't put in as much of a tough situation so we can get a better gauge on. How much devin. Bush is ready to go for the season. What the steelers have in their new middle linebacker. Joe schubert would love to see. What would you get there. And is roberts lane much better off in that reserve role that can come in and if that's just better suited for him so those are some numbers and things to look for. So i wanna see the steelers. I want to see them. Get first downs in the first quarter. I wanna see them. Put points of the board in the first quarter. And i would also like to the steelers to get off the field in the first quarter on defense. The the third down conversion third-down rates conversion rate. Sorry be pretty low in the first quarter but even in the first half. I'd like to see the steelers win the first half and not just dominate the second half like they did last week. So that's what the numbers i'm looking for. I'm hopefully that was fun and informative for you. All i'm sorry if i was just regurgitating a lot of stats but my goodness. That's an awful lot to take in from this game this past week. It was absolutely crazy that the you know. The steelers gave up no first downs. In the second half didn't give a third dot conversion the entire game had a crazy time of possession advantage and completely dominated that part of the game. I would just like to see the steelers. Be able to put points on the board this next game before the two minute. Warning of the first half because the steelers they have one score in the first half shofar. Let's let's get that going a little bit better. But i'm excited to see what things can happen. I'm excited to see. I'm not gonna say a full stadium because it's preseason that it just doesn't fill up but i'm excited to see numerous fans throughout the stadium. Saturday night at heinz field. I really am. I'm looking forward to seeing this game. It's nationally televised on. nfl network. And because the steelers are the home team you will get the home team announcers which is very positive. Because it should be charlie batch and bob papillon and you don't have to listen to the other teams announcers never talked about the steelers instead. The lines fans have to listen to the steelers. Announcers never talked about the lines. That's that's a. That's a pretty good off. I'll take that but Thanks for for check us out. Make sure you are. You are checking out behind.

"The steelers second team players. If you think about it like the eagles defensive line they want series. That's what they got. The the eagles offense like with their with their young quarterback jalen hurts. He had two series Things like that so the steelers even had their. They're more starting caliber players out there a little bit longer but it was in that first half and that's where the steelers were not well. Let's just say they didn't win the game in the first half so that's something this week i would like to see. I wanna see the steelers win the first half hour him. Go out there with with the players that are going to be out there. Their best offense their best defense. I don't wanna see when the first half. I wanna see it when the first quarter. I don't know how many of these players are gonna play beyond the first. I'd like to see him get a little bit. I just don't know but let's see the steelers get going early. I talked about this with my brother on the scarborough show that. How much time is ben. Rothlisberger gonna play. And i think it's more about the number snaps than it is the number series. Because if he if he has a fifteen play series in the first quarter and goes down scores touchdown that might be it because the number snaps if they have you know a three out that another drive that after one first down stalls you might seem out there for a third series just to get the number of place. I'm hoping it's less series. I really am. Because i want to see the steelers. Do well in those series. I want to see the steelers win. The first half the i am fine with them winning the second half because what that's showing is some of these things that we were concerned about. The steelers might have more depth than what we realized it could like. Is it that their depth. That good is it that the these players have been coached up better things like that. Who cares i mean. It's nice to know these answers. But ultimately they're still good things for the steelers. I mean the fact that they're out there looking at the. Pf grades just you know. Lafayette pits played seven snaps. He played seven snaps on defense but he had a score of ninety seven point two which which was absolutely crazy. If you think about that. I would like to see a bigger sample size but really don't because i love the fact that the defense is getting off the field you know you also have to look at how. The steelers played out their offensive line. The last game they had rashad coward out there for the first fifteen snaps. And then kevin dotson for the next fifty That's going to be switched now. I mean i don't think there's any way they can deny kevin dotson run with the ones and the steelers. This week finally had the five players. Who many believe are lined up to be the starters for week one of the regular season together for the first time in training camp. This week those players are just in case. There's any question. Chew chor. Four kevin dotson kevin greene trae turner and zach banner. Those are the those are the five you're looking at but the fact that you're getting great play from someone like dan moore junior. You're actually getting improved play from jc hassen. Our you're getting quality play from. I think i've really have to say. Chaz green has been someone that has really surprised me is when he was out there playing tackle that he's giving some some still some statute that wasn't that great but a lot of good quality play..

"Well let me come back to it. In the second half of the cowboys game in the in the hall of fame gave the steelers punted twice again but the cowboys punted three times in the second half when they didn't put it on the first half when you're looking at the eagles game by goodness the steelers did not punt in the second half. Let's not get in the second half stuff. Let's get to the first half stuff. I i mean they were close. In first nouns. The steelers head nine to the eagles ten in the first half the score was sixteen seven and the steelers did not score. They're seven points until just inside the two minute warning so it's kind of like they really didn't get going to actually have stuff on the scoreboard. Now if you've gone back and watch the game over and over again i've twenty. I've watched it through again. One time but i feel like i watched it over because i was watching each plight four or five times before i went to the next one so i feel like i've watched it over over five times again. It just was all at one time. You could definitely see that the steelers were right. On the verge. Bright on the verge of being able to to really extend those drives in the first half in just a couple of things between i mean penalties a negative play on an end around things things of that nature than putting four times so the first downs that were closed with the steelers and eagles ten. I'd already said but the eagles their ten first downs they were all passing no rushing. Let's just interesting and none on penalties. Either the steelers only twenty percent on third down conversions. They wanna five but the eagles were. Oh a five. No third down conversions. The first half. And we'll find out third down conversions period for the game the total yards..

Yes since nineteen thirty-three the men of steel but the inquiry surrounding the black and gold are definitely ever-evolving especially this week with the steelers winning yet. Another preseason game this time against the philadelphia eagles yes the state championship for pennsylvania. Goes to pittsburgh if it's just the preseason that's gold but hey they won in the regular season last year so i'm taking the title also trading for an inside linebacker and t. J. watt still without an extension. Now it seems like the musical selection. The best fits. This week's fact or fiction could be by christina aguilera. I believe she was from wexford. Maybe i know. She's from pittsburgh area in this beautiful. So here's a sample of those wonderful lyrics. Everyday is so wonderful then. Suddenly it's hard to breathe now. And then i get insecure from all the pain. I'm so ashamed. I am beautiful no matter what they say. Words can't bring me down. I am beautiful in every single way. Yes words can't bring me down. Oh no so. Don't you bring me down today to all your friends you're delirious so consumed in all your doom trying hard to fill the happiness. The pieces gone left the puzzle undone is that the way it is. You are beautiful no matter what they say. Words can't bring you down. Oh no you are beautiful in every single way yes. Words can't bring you down ono so don't you bring me down today no matter what we do no matter what we say. We're the song inside the tune full of beautiful mistakes now. Are these lyrics really related here. Or maybe i just wanted to listen to some early to k pop. Yes she was. Misc- mickey mouse clever. But a great popstar came out in one thousand nine hundred nine with genie in a bottle and has been awesome. Ever since but anyhow there is surely a lot to wonder about and bts's going to try to answer some of those most poignant wondering that we have bouncing around in those premiums of yours. Hey myron what's up buddy and we're going to answer them ahead of time so take a listen to some bold statements on this so much more as we label them as only we can as fact or fiction. Will we be on point. Well of course only time. We'll tell factor fixing number one. Pj wad is holding out for a new contract fiction all right. We've got a pittsburgh media no it all. He's alleging the t. J. watt is abandoning the team. And that this is a straight up. Hold out that's the perception of like i just can't get on board with with what being president pittsburgh for camp in conditioning instead of practicing is definitely much different than fans are accustomed to. Yeah i get it but is it new. No not really. It's not in fact cam hayward he did it to a degree in twenty twenty before he got his contract. Mike tomlin does not comment much on players. That aren't practicing. You know he will never do that whether they're hurt or whether they're holding out or whether they're not in for some reason as long as they're on the practice field he's gonna talk about you but if they're in a hot tub or anywhere else. He's not going to say a word but his thoughts shared did not exhibit way. Too much to be concerned about in this tomlin's quote and i quote that negotiation processes going to run. Its course some run their courses faster than others. If i remember correctly cam hayward had less than one hundred percent participation when he was in a similar circumstance a short time ago an quote well what may not be a full participant. But he's not holding out and it seems like mike tomlin doesn't think so either factor fiction number two. The steelers are going to trade a quarterback. Let's say fact. The steelers have four quarterbacks that our roster capable for every single franchise in the national football league now. Federal list burger. You know him. He is unequivocally the starter. That's something we absolutely now. I know a battle though is ensuing between mason rudolph dwight haskins for the number two position while choubey three may go down to the player that does not quite win the backup job and also joshua dobbs the steelers have surrendered. A fourth rounder in the isaiah louder. Milk deal on draft day with the dolphins a fifty last year's avery williamson trade the jets even though they got a seventh back in that so they have extra seventh next year. And a six in this week's joe schober deal with the jaguars so that means they don't have a lot of draft. Picks if the three backups. Continue to show worth. Kevin colbert will get a late round. Pick out of one of these guys and he's done it before so getting a fifth in two thousand nineteen for dobbs shows that you might be able to do the same for guy. The caliber of dwayne haskins or mason rudolph factor fiction number. Three outside linebacker is now one of the deepest labels on the steelers fact it absolutely is. We know all about tj what he's consistently an nfl defensive player of the year candidate. Then there's outside. Smith he looks to be making a huge jump from a promising rookie year. And then there's recently acquired. Melvin ingram a former pro bowl selection for the chargers and melvin. Wow he's looking good. He's getting first team reps in watts. Spot really like what number eight is doing the osho with six round pick whence he rochet being the absolute value getting him in that six ground and undrafted free agent jamir jones from notre dame carrying up..
"pittsburgh steeler" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"The pittsburgh steelers will not have to run into some things ran into last year like losing players because of kobe scarce. Heck ben rothlisberger missed a week because a because of a close contact with someone despite never getting it. The pittsburgh steelers are in a better situation this year than they were last year. And guess what one of the things that i think has gotten swept under the rug. Steelers never gonna break last year thereby wiki sentenced on. They're not missing any time. Because a covert and a pretty sure. The nfl isn't going to reschedule. Games especially like What we saw a year ago. I i think the punishments might be a little harsher for teams that are able to feel the enough body so the pittsburgh steelers should actually get arrested here and that means something for team that lost their bye week. They lost their thursday night game. They just had to keep practicing all week long. And then the game gets delayed all this year by week now after you practiced all week. Sorry about that fellas Yeah you're playing twenty one straight weeks of football without a break now. That is a lot to put on a human body. The pittsburgh steelers now however once again. They're getting devon bush back from his torn. Acl getting zach. Banner back at the end of the year. The steelers had robert selena limping around on a bum knee. The list goes on and on for the steelers the with their injury problems last year and guys at missed a playoff game because kobe the that was pretty serious and on top of that rosberg who was dealing with some knee problems which borrow means is is not being reported as an issue as it was at the end of last season this team is healthier and if they can stay healthy will be a force and one of the things that people keep pointing words his team that these injured guys almost like they don't exist but guess what they are coming back in the fold and the steelers are going to be a better team because of it. Another thing that i think should be exciting steeler fans after the release david castro and signing of trae turner and melvin ingram. The steelers have still have significant chunk of cap space. The steelers probably make another move before week. One improve this roster which honesty on paper is a pretty damn nice looking roster. They add a solid drafty. Fill the lot of gaps in this team. If someone finds himself as a street free agent who the pittsburgh steelers might be able to pick someone up and be even better. Come week one. Yes i know that is far less likely than the other things that we talked about today but for a team that is competitive year out they should be players to land another player to before we get to week one. Which is huge. For the pittsburgh steelers so to recap today show. The steelers had been overheated. All off season long. And really if you're steeler fan it's probably driving you nuts right now but thankfully. Football is on the horizon and the steelers can shut the haters up which i cannot wait for. Especially 'cause week one is against the buffalo bills if the steelers can come out and punch the bills in the face and leave orchard park with the win. Yeah that might silence. Some of the haters really really really quick. So i really all of us should not be Should not discredit how exciting it is to be a steelers fan right now and and to get ready to hear some apologies which i think are on the pretty close horizon. I if i do say so myself. Outside of that Ben roethlisberger in the offensive line can prove a lot of their haters wrong. And so can mike tomlin. If he can rack up another winning season he has yet to have a losing season. The nfl and of course with the auto amount of games. It's harder than ever to have a winning season. Got to win nine games. Instead of eight to have a winning percentage in the positive so that will be one of the tasks for mike tomlin and company this year past that. I want to thank you for tuning into today's edition of the live. Mike and i want to remind you behind. The steel curtain dot com is releasing a heck of a lot. More audio podcast. Then then really we have in the past. Of course you have your evening. Podcasts and the stream. Monday all everyday the week on youtube and facebook. And then you have your am shows like the live. Mike what you're listening to right now. Jeff hartman's Three let's rides. Dave scofield stocky. But we're we're having afternoon shows added to the fold as well which is really exciting.

"Already pittsburgh steelers fans. It is time for the second. Half of the live mike podcasts. And why the pittsburgh steelers are such an over hated team in the nfl. It it's like clockwork If the steelers make a move all the gotta find the negatives in this one of the things with the melvin ingram signings people trying to say all the steelers defense is old because they have cam hayward joe haden tyson allows old vince. Williams's old melvin. Ingram sold well. Guess what the the only guys that are over thirty. That are fulltime. Starters of those names are listed. Joe haden cam hayward cam hayward is arguably the second best defensive lineman in the nfl. Joe haden has not lost a step. The other guys are either primary backups. Or i guess in vince williams case a fringe starter. So the some of these. These people are just trying to get some sort of a rise. I think steelers nation tour trying to make people believe that. This team isn't good when in reality they are. It's one of those kind of things. You gotta just shake your head. 'cause the pittsburgh steelers by all means if everything clicks. There's no reason why they can't be competing for championship this year. And there's people that will laugh at that statement but then come january. There's a pretty good shot. They'll be one of the teams. That are will a playoff team. By far which. I think are will surprise a lot of people but it shouldn't and have a very good chance winning this division. I think they have the best chance right now off winning the division over the browns the ravens which people will laugh you out of a room right now but honest to go. i think that's the right mindset right now for this team unless they run into some serious injury problems and matt canada's system just doesn't work which by all means it. It's the opposite of that. I do not think you can fairly say his pittsburgh. Steelers team isn't good. I think the steelers floor is a seven one team. I think at worst. They're nine and eight team. I think that's their floor. There ceilings probably like tw- Man like 'cause they messed up the schedule. It's just hard to come up with the the the week by week predictions anymore. But i don't know twelve and five thirteen and four. Yeah they have a hard schedule but the steelers team is pretty loaded. They still have a top three defense in the nfl. And this offense is pretty underrated. Especially ben roethlisberger is as healthy and as competitive as these reports are saying they're going to be pretty darn good too and they have a good special teams unit so this hey is just one of the things that make your eyes roll and one of the places that people want to point the finger at is mike tomlin and this is a direction that many steeler fans like to point the finger in as well which is kind of one of those things that always makes me roll my eyes. 'cause my thomann is still generally one of the best coaches in the nfl players. Absolutely love him. Melvin ingram chose to play for the steelers over the chiefs or the chiefs the team. That has backed back. Represented the scene the super bowl and as a starting position on the edge. Open some more playing time probably comparable money and if people in the national media are to be believed a significantly better shot at lombardi this year. Melvin ingram choose the steelers over that. And why is that. Because mike tomlin is beloved and furthermore to that point andy. Reid is beloved. He's one of the favorite player coaches. There are in football and melvin. Ingram chose mike tomlin over that because how much players respect him. That means something. I mean something to mean. It shouldn't be something you especially. If you are a pittsburgh steelers fan mike. Tomlin has gone. The finger pointed his way a few times in the last What six calendar months has it been fair. I think in some senses. It is like the whole not living in our fierce thing back in the playoffs then punting on what fourth in one when the steelers were storming back in that game against the cleveland browns and a of halton momentum on what could have been monumental comeback. Yeah that sucked. But mike tomlin is still put this team in position to win year in and year out there a competitive mindset. The pittsburgh steelers are never in window now mode because they're only mode is win now. That is the pittsburgh steelers mo but yet they get pointed out until they're do To to flop each and every year mason rudolph could be the quarterback. It doesn't matter mike. Tomlin can get the most out of his team and get them passed a winning record. Sure a winning record isn't the ultimate goal in the nfl. Lombardi is but the pittsburgh steelers on a team. That's just going to roll over and loose. That's not them this. This unit. This team under mike tomlin is going to win and push for championship. Each and every single year does that. Mean they don't get a top ten freaking nature pick. Yeah guess what. They haven't done that in a very long time. They had a trade up for devon bush at number ten and he wasn't healthy last year. He tours. acl so they're freaking nature pick. They're finally getting back this year. So that's another reason to be high on this team past the coaching staff. The injured guys coming back or substantial. Remember joe haden play the playoff game because a cova and speaking of covert regardless think of the vaccine the teams that have more fully vaccinated. Players will be at a significant advantages here. Because they don't have to test they don't have to miss time without having it and the pittsburgh steelers by all means by what the reports are coming out right now have the highest rate in the nfl. Pittsburgh steelers are at a significant advantage compared to a lot of teams and they're still a handful that don't have half the roster fully vaccinated regardless if that happens or not as steeler fans. You can expect your players your favorite players to be on the field each and every week because they bought into what the coaching staff is telling them..

"We were kinda worried at caches. Marsh and quincy rochet as the primary backups at outside linebacker. But now melvin ingram. Is there in full with alex. Alex smith and t. j. watt. So really it is a beautiful day. The steelers defense got better and this team took a step in the right direction. I am thrilled. I am happy and who knows. Maybe there's some more moves to be made before we get to week one but anyway getting to the real topic of today's show the pittsburgh steelers being the most over hated team in the nfl. It's it's one of those things that have been recurring all off season long Just just the voices from the national media even the local media you you hear this day in day out. The pittsburgh steelers our team that sh- supposedly is one. That's about to fall off a cliff but some who covers this team on a pretty regular basis. Daily articles Couple podcasts a week. Someone who's reading all the rumors learning about these players seeing how everyone's health is doing. It doesn't really seem like this is a team that is about to fall off a cliff. This is a team. That's built to win here now and trying to take home a championship in the twilight of the ben rothlisberger era but still it is this constant bashing from the pf fs of the world or really you just name it any sports talk show. The last couple months is basically just been writing off the pittsburgh steelers some non factor and that just is not fair. This is a team that looks to be in great shape heading into the twenty twenty one season the fact that all these outlets are trying to put a pin on pin in. The steelers is pretty interesting to me. Because i think it goes beyond just a that kind of content. Kind of getting getting your cliques. Getting those numbers up. Of course you put the steelers anything especially negative and it's like throwing gasoline on a fire. Those numbers are going to take off. But i genuinely think a lot of these. A lot of these national media types want to just say the pittsburgh steelers are bad team. And i am not seeing it i am truthfully someone who can look at a picture without any rose colored all in this case black and gold tinted glasses on. If i look at as just a by standard looking at this team i still think there are really solid football team especially if they stay healthy but for whatever reason people want to say. This is a bad football team and i really just just makes me laugh in all honesty because it just does not stop at all. It's just been the constant bashing this entire offseason and most of it has been directed towards ben rothlisberger and the offensive line starting with the offensive line though for as much criticism as that unit gets the steelers completely revamped that unit gone or marquees penalty dave decastro and alejandro villanueva. The old guard is no longer there. The steelers completely retooled the unit yet. People want to bash this team saying that. It's gone worse. how can you say that one. This is a brand new squad rolling out on the field. Left tackles a brand new guy in two weeks before he was a right tackle before left. Guard is kevin dotson who steals viewed as a backup all of last season despite being the best guy in the field when he was in the line of due to injury issues. It's matt filer and others at center kindergarten green. I guess is probably the biggest question mark but he is an athletic stuff and someone that you take over the job probably in training camp then it right guard trae turner who i if he's healthy like he's claiming he is will be a significant upgrade on injured david castro who all likelihood probably doesn't even play in twenty twenty one at all and it's probably mulling retirement for my if we can take all reports at face value and then at right tackle zach banner who looked pretty good in a half of football last year before he tours. Acl this is a brand new offensive. Line trash it as much as you want but saying it's gotten worse or whatever from last year that simply isn't fair because they've completely retooled his group are. They're these big time flashing names. Not yet i think kevin dotson could kind of develop into that if trae turner is as good as he was before a in. La yeah he could be an absolute stud to and again. We don't know what kendrick green is. The tackles are all right. I'm not saying they're the worst tackle tandem in the nfl. Though that's that's the last thing i'm gonna do but yet again the over hated pittsburgh steelers offensive line is getting buried and we haven't seen them play. It is not a fair thing for so many of these outlets to continuously be doing is just tearing them down saying how bad it's going to be. Yeah there's a ton of question marks. I agree with you. There's a ton of question marks. But right now i think it's fairly simple to look that unit be like well on paper with a new scheme new offense aggressive mindset and aggressive blockers at the very least they should be a good team running the football because those guys get after it in the run game. They're downhill guys that you're gonna push around. Perhaps ben might have to take a couple more hits this year but even in that case. We do not know how they're going to work. As a cohesive passing unit yet and to say this is the worst offense align and football which in some rankings that have been coming out the last couple of weeks is exactly where the steelers relying ranks really is not fair. I think this unit has a very very good chance of being improved from what it was last year but continuously the steelers are being slagged. I think that unit will definitely prove people. Wrong and they'll be something exciting to watch especially. Rg harris who i guess would be the The flagbearer when it comes to success of the offensive line if he goes off and hasn't outstanding rookie season as a running back. I think that's a huge testament to the offensive line as well as the talent of najji harris but so many people want to say. Oh he's just going to struggle. 'cause the offense line socks if he doesn't and there you go you can just point to those numbers and and it's one of those things you can kind of look out for to kind of gauge some of the success success of the offensive line as well as the sack numbers have been rothlisberger and how long he's able to hang out in the pocket which could be better brand new scheme brand new coach brand new guys on the offense line. Slagging them really. I think we're getting a little too carried away with that And it could bite some people in the rear end and get them featured on old takes exposed for having a prematurely bad football takes all sports takes in general but That's something i think. People are playing with a little bit of fire on another guy. Of course that is being overheated. Is benjamin todd rothlisburger. The senior pivot for the pittsburgh steelers. Yes the steeler season it tailed off and cooled off bay area very.

"Dealer. Band did his time once again. For what i hope is another thrilling addition of pittsburgh steelers fact or fiction. This is the eating crow edition. Yes i am definitely eating crow because men. I was dead wrong last week. With my entire factor fiction. I had a headline called jumping to conclusions. Man everybody else. The jump to conclusions were correct. I stayed back. i was wrong. What are you gonna do. I'm not afraid to go ahead and put my ego on hold and say yeah. I was wrong and i will do that in this. Edition of factor fiction. Because you know what we're talking about the pittsburgh steelers and the inquiry surrounding the black and gold or definitely ever evolving. This week really. Well what a crazy week for the men of steel you had david. The castro's departure incomes trai turner with his arrival and saint. Vincent college was put on hold so it seems like the musical selection that best fits this week's factor fiction could be by boys demand but no. It's not my old favorite. It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday. I use that a lot. It's actually the end of the road. Here's a sample. we belong together. And you know that i'm right. Why do you play with my heart. Why do you play with my mind. Said we'd be forever. Said it would never die. How could you love me and leave me. Never say goodbye. When i can't sleep at night without holding you tight girl. Each time i try. I just break down and cry pain in my head. Oh i'd rather be dead spinning around and around although we've come to the end of the road still. I can't let you go it's unnatural. You belong to me. I belong to you now. Lock you can ponder. The significance of whether these lyrics are really related. Here to the situation it really could be when you listen to factor fiction. Think about boys demand. You'll see what i'm getting at here or maybe really. I just want an excuse for some smoothie. Slow jams from the nineties but anyhow there's surely a lot to wonder about and tse is going to try to sum up those poignant wondering ahead of time so take a listen to some bold statements on this and so much more as we always do. It's fact or fiction. We be on point. You know only time is going to tell like last week. Time told and six days factor fiction number one. sometimes the author is wrong slash. David decastro is done with the steelers fact. Boy did i pull the ultimate boehner. Last week i made the claim that there was absolutely no problem with david. Decastro and the steelers. I asked fans. I asked my fellow contributors if c. t. Stop take a step back. Relax examine the facts. Even quoted in a net foon cello song from the mickey mouse club. And i subtitled the article. Don't jump to conclusions. I thought i was brilliant. Well you can. Door dash me order of crow nuggets now ended up hall because david decastro could not be more done with the pittsburgh steelers in fact there could be grievances filed against the team. The bottom line remains that there was an inferno to go along with the smoke from mandatory. Minicamp i did not recognize it and even worse. My wife is right again. In the assessment. That i'm usually wrong again. Factor fiction number two signing trai turner was the best move. The steelers could have made fact. There are a lot of fans in media out there. They feel that the steelers panic they rash decision to move on and sign trai turner so quickly just hours after releasing david decastro narrative that turner's terrible especially against a run because of pf rankings. And you know how the steelers need to do well against iran. Here's the deal. Pro football focus. I subscribe to them. But it's not the end all and be all patrick mahomes just announced. Pf this week. But that's not what we're talking about here. You know the steelers know what the best fit for their team is they don't care about. Pf rankings. here's what's most crucial. The steelers had more than a week to assess trait hearner's value to the team. Decastro was lost to the steelers with the third ankle surgery on the horizon. The younger five time pro bowler that is turner is being brought into the steel city and he is indeed the best possible replacement for decastro at a bargain price of three million for one year. In late june. What do you expect. There's nothing out there beat ese senior editor jeff hartman. Put out an article. This week listing the other available guards. Trai turner may not work out. That's true but he's overwhelmingly the best opportunity for the steelers to move on from the great david decastro if you look at that list. So i'm thankful the trae turner's here. I think they could do well with them. There's not much of an investment in him for bringing him in only at three million dollars so it's really the best move that this team could have possibly made at this juncture factor. Fiction number. Three green could start the season at the guard position fiction. This question was raised the other evening. On the steelers preview with jeff hartmann dave scofield and myself on whether the steelers would take kendrick green the steelers third round pick at center and move him to guard where he played most of his college career as a backup plan. Should trai turner falter. I don't think this would be ideal at all. The steelers got better play out of. Bj finney the first time around at guard in pittsburgh and if green starter ready. Don't you think he would be best. Served playing the position. He was drafted a play which is center man if he's that good put him on his career course. Now plus don't really worry about tretorn let trai turner control his destiny. And i think you'll be just fine but kendra green should be a center. If he started ready. I wanna see him number fifty three s- tapping the ball to ben rothlisberger factor.

"Are see. We are forced to listen to quarterback so often in the world of nfl analysis. So i just wanna thank you for helping lead. The db revolution espn daily. Why does this happen. You guys finally invited me or it's your time man your old team. The steelers are right now. Undefeated and that is surprising. Let's be honest to a lot of people. So how surprising is it though to you. I think it's it's. It's more surprising when you actually watch the games <hes>. It's obviously surprising. Anytime team goes through more than half of the season and their undefeated. But when you watch the steelers play the second half against tennessee titans even watching them to send the backup quarterback gets the denver broncos or be dominated upfront defensively the way they were against the baltimore ravens but still be undefeated. I think that's the fascinating part is not just that they've managed to win. Every game is just inside of those games. you seen opportunities for them to lose. But they've made the place that they've to. I mean you can even look at a match up against the dallas cowboys and say you know gary gilbert and the dallas cowboys may have deserve to win that game. But that's what this lied about was going to come down to one possession games. He's gonna come our critical situation though football moments and at least it does far. The steelers have found answers to any questions in those important moments. And this is why you sit undefeated. So how does this defense stack up. Ryan versus the steeler defense. Is that you played for that. You helped lead. What are the holes in this defense. You know what. I don't think they necessarily have holes in the sense of of those things being a negative right. He's looking to make a rush. The passer with just for the obviously can bring bring pressure make fitzpatrick ultimate playmaker on the back end and i think they have really good corners. But they don't have that great court but when you all those things together i think you get one of the top defense in the league especially when it comes to pressure and turning the ball over we. That's what football is right. Like people aren't going to hold you. Thirteen points like we did wait. Like that's not the ball we play it. You can't intimidate people like i would get fined and kicked out of every game. Five play james harrison fell six million dollars a year. You can't do those things anymore. But if you could get the ball which the pittsburgh steelers do know that really helps and that's why this team world season. Well i wanna get into the difference between playing football then versus now especially because offense is king these days as you implied right there so the defense is the big reason. The steelers are undefeated. The offense though i mean they've been relatively relatively average so can eighteen built around defense. Like the steelers are ryan. Can that sort of team win in the modern nfl. I believe they can. I believe they can. Because if you look at the individual weapons offensively like they are extremely. good <hes>. I think you you're missing that one running back piece but we look at pool. Smith schuster the johnson. Eric ebron like that's a skill set or skill position that a lot of teams would love to have especially teams not named became the city chiefs. And so if you can do all those things on the outside like they can. You can score points. Also look at this team at critical moments though. Think about tennessee. Titans having to get a drive late in the game even though been was a reception late like they were able to the ball greg band. There's gonna prevail on the road. The pittsburgh steelers had the hold on dearly man. Hold on they do for the baltimore. Ravens they score in the second half and they were able to do that then back pop. For the end zone touchdown pittsburgh and all the out cut to the chase. Claypool man play. It just seems that all the critical point of the season it's offense has been able to produce down to like. I said the dallas cowboy game last week obviously exploiting a very bad bengals defense and well in a team like the cat city chiefs right and i say okay. One had the baby stopped him have to limit big play. The pittsburgh steelers can do that with rush. Plays on the back end right. Play play man when they need to stop the big click now. Let's go offensively the only time we've ever seen patrick mahomes lose. He was in the playoffs. He was standing across from another super bowl.

Claypool is just another example of that
